  • Seen any good movies lately?

    In the same vein the thread "y'all watching anything good on tv" I thought I 'd see if anyone has seen good movies lately.

    For me, I watched Guardians of the Galaxy last night. Not too bad if I do say so myself. The CGI was seamlessly blended in with real life action and as stories go, this one wasn't too bad. I mean yes it was a movie based on a Marvel comic book, but still. I'd recommend it if you're looking for something lighthearted by action packed.

    I watched Guardians of the Galaxy a few weeks ago and really liked it a lot. I thought it was a fun and refreshing take on a comic. Didnt take itself too seriously. I watched John Wick last weekend, and I really liked that as well. It certainly isnt a thinker type movie, but for some dumb fun and lots of action it was worth checking out.

      Keep 'em coming -- need some movies to rent on my ipad for international flights I have coming up.

      I saw Guardians and feel like it was a solid watch. Gone Girl was also good, but--without giving any spoilers--I think the story is just missing something at the end (I read the book first and felt the same way when I finished that).

        My buddy has seen Whiplash twice. I'm waiting for it to come available at the library, although I could be waiting a while. I'm number 125 on the wait list. I've also heard that Citizenfour is good.

          I saw Focus in theaters this past weekend. It was a slick, enjoyable movie. Me and the fiancee joked that at times it reminded us of a con artist version of Hitch.

          This is Where I Leave You - It kind of falls into that dramedy category, but it has an awesome cast and had some great moments.
          Deliver us from Evil - Was craving a horror movie last weekend and caught this on starz. Not exactly a "fine film" but a fun cop/excorcism romp. Also didn't realize that Joel McHale was in it, so it was a nice surprise having him as a mouthy, adrenaline junky sidekick.

            Whiplash was well done and a little intense at times, in a good way. I realized after it ended my hands were clenched in a fist and were that way nearly the whole movie.

            Probably will check out What We Do in the Shadows this weekend.

              I have Gone Girl and Nightcrawler on the playlist. Gone Girl is almost 3 hours and the GF wants to watch that this weekend, so Ill be spending some "quality" time doing that on Sat. I watched Predestination awhile back also, and it was pretty smartly made. Has a lot of twists in it, so you really have to pay attention. Oh, and Snowpiercer was pretty good also. Ending kinda let me down but a unique plot for a flick.

              edit* I just checked and the run time for Gone Girl is only 149 minutes. I was told it was almost 3. Still a pretty long flick though.

                That's exactly how I was thought Birdman (also a good flick). I was on edge the whole time. I think it was a combination of the drumming/soundtrack and the story itself.

                  From what I recall, it's very well paced and doesn't feel as long as it is. FWIW

                    Depends what you like really random things I watched over winter break.

                    I'm not one of those people that's a movie snob at all eg. I thought Hercules with Dwayne Johnson was super entertaining for what it was, great twist on an old myth.

                    Need for Speed - Not the greatest but my god did I ever want to an even faster car

                    Interstellar was good until near the end
                    Predestination - I enjoyed it, interesting story line
                    Automata - Didn't mind this either, sci-fi what is "alive"
                    Big Hero 6 - Awesome animated flick

                        Most recent flick for me - Spectre.

                          Same. I wasn't blown away by it. I still vote Skyfall as the best Daniel Craig film, but curious as to what others think.
                          I'm being mindful of spoilers of course

                            Seen any good movies lately?

                            My personal ranking:

                            Casino Royale > Skyfall > Spectre = Quantum of Solace

                            That might change with another viewing, but yeah. I still enjoyed it, but it certainly wasn't my favorite.

                              Watched Victor Frankenstein tonight, and while it won't win an Oscar, it was a thoroughly entertaining movie. Radcliffe, McAvoy, and Scott all put in great performances.
