follow up movie. it's new movie day.

singularity. I should have known better when u saw John cusack on the cover. he hasn't had a good movie in close to twenty years, and is being type cast regularly in high cgi, low budget disaster movies. (and even twenty years ago his "good" movies were all romantic comedies, never great. say anything, serendipity, high fidelity...)

anyway, I'm only fifteen minutes in and Ooooh man, it's so not intended to be funny enough for me to laugh this hard.

actress says " that was my last explosive arrow"

I say"and your last chance for redemption as even a decent actress who doesn't blow her lines in my eyes"

meanwhile it is 97 years since 8 billion people on earth die in one night because we reached a technological singularity (2020 so that is most of humanity) but we are walking around in an abandoned city that sees regular repair.
movie posters survive on outside of movie theatres (no frame or glass even.) yard sale paper fliers still nailed to posts, a scaffold with fresh safety nets and bright orange pads, bad plaster repair that cannot manage to survive 5 years manage to last 97. Annd the actors clothing is all brand spanking new, complete with creases and designer jewelry and equipment.

it's the apocolypse , 97 years later, dozens are alive, but l gotta product my hair and cake on the makeup.

the dialogue is so oo bad.

Imma give it a 2/10. but it might get bad enough for a 1... we will see

I have fallen to a pit of despair and hope.

The Pianist, La Combre Lucien, Schindlers list, Au revoir Les'Enfants, Hiroshima Mon Amour, Stalingrad, Enemy at the gates, Casablanca, Life is beautiful.

all great movies, One less than the others, but all great.

I can't rationalize why I torture myself so with these selections from my personal movie library, maybe I am influenced by removing a 'friend' from my Facebook for posting anti-Semite propaganda. maybe I would have watched them this year anyway.

Went to see Infinity War last night.

Lately I've gotten pretty tired of the Marvel formula but this one actually was something different. Took the girlfriend with me and she enjoyed it as much as I did, despite having only seen 4-5 of the now 19 movies. Really says something about how simplistic and easy to enjoy these films are.

I'm sure though that on repeated viewings the comedy will be too much and not as funny anymore. I wish they'd be a bit more serious sometimes but.. All they're going for is fun and they nail that perfectly.

I hope we get Afflecks solo Batman film with Deathstroke, and Aquaman could be very interesting.

I agree with you about marvel, it's sad that the last three good marvel movies weren't produced by marvel. (likely an hyperbole, I may have missed one)

well, it's the same with comics, DC and Marvel can never both be producing gold at the same time.

Watched Annihilation last night, film adaptation of the Jeff VanderMeer book. Wowzers, it was amazing, kind of horror sci-fi, set around understanding of a strange alien manifestation which affects the biology of things within it. Have just purchased the audiobook and will listen soon. Anyone else seen/read it?

I read it last year. Wasn't much impressed by it, kind of meh. It's quite a short book and kind of confusing and weird. Didn't have much of an impact on me. I'm interested in seeing the movie though.

Already heard before that the movie is really worth it. Apparently it also has a good soundtrack

Add "Grave of the Fireflies" if you want to continue to torture yourself.

Now watching season 2 of "Sneaky Pete". Good series, and I am a Giovanni Ribisi fan.

Yea Annihilation was really good. Garland, and Villeneuve too (Arrival/BR2049) are doing wonders in the sci-fi genre right now. I haven't read the books but Villeneuve's Dune is something I'm very much looking forward to.

I don't live in the US so I'm a little disappointed I couldn't see Annihilation on the big screen..

I'm watching Black Mirror. I saw a couple of the earlier episodes a while back, but with the new season I want to watch the entire series. Currently I'm on episode 2.

I'm also watching iZombie season 4. It's a fun show to pass the time. This season is the best one so far, IMO.
