Watched It Comes at Night on Netflix. Probably the worst film I've seen in a long time. It was too ambiguous for my liking, and nothing really happened through the film.

Disappointed because it got all these good reviews, and I think Joel Edgerton's one of the most underrated actors out there

Mortal Kombat is one of the dumbest **** movie i have ever witnessed, and i enjoyed every god damn moment of it. :lol:
Encourge any one who grew up begging their parents to let them play this game to go and see the film, and as Shea Serrano says, if you're not yelling the names of each character as they arrive on scene, you aint doing it right

want to take bonejr but being rated r18+ is a challenge since he's 13, I'm ok with him seeing it based on generated violence for the rating.

Honestly, it's gorey man
If you're cool with that (and frankly the games kids play at 13, i think it's probably OK pending the kid) but its really fun

I don’t understand why it has the same title as the original
Mortal Kombat
Mortal Kombat 2: Annihilation
Mortal Kombat

It’s a different movie to the original.. give it a different title?
Anyways I’m keen to see it this Wednesday. Scorpions Revenge on Nutflicks was pretty good.

Ok with gore as you say the video games have that.

Just watched the first 15 mins of Can’t Hardly Wait, since it’s about to go off Netflix... possibly the worst 15 min start to a movie I have ever seen. I couldn’t take it anymore.

Just finished watching The Dry. Really recommend it. Amazing cinematography. I think it’s probably the best Eric Bana movie I’ve see since Munich.

Only bugbear, there’s a scene where Bana gets offered a beer, and they give him a Budweiser. No self-respecting Australian, let alone someone from rural Australia, is pulling that from the fridge. Wish Great Northern matched Bud’s product placement offer

I watched Nomadland yesterday. It was sort of exactly how I expected it to be. Nothing happens pretty much. It was like most Frances McDormand films. Beautiful scenery and cinematography. I can see exactly why the Academy voted the way they did. But it didn’t move me. I’d seen this cookie cutter movie before.

I saw a trailer of it the first time. The trailer made it look like a faux-documentary. Cant really see what the story is actually about

Watching War Horse now... why are the German soldiers speaking to each other in English?

Probably for the same reason the Russian captain on The Hunt for Red October spoke with a Scottish accent and a lisp

Strictly Ballroom just finished on ABC. Haven’t seen that since my teens. Forgot how good it was, it’s a classic.

I found it interesting watching it now, and being able to pick up the Baz Luhrmann techniques through it.
