One of those films with an immensely satisfying twist-filled plots. Its screenplay (written by David Mamet) is its biggest credit. I definitely recommend you all go watch it. Conning n' deceit n' stuff.

This is both the funniest and saddest movie I've seen in ages. I don't really want to say anymore, but it really is truly excellent and if you haven't already started watching it I'm disappointed.


Ahh I love that so much. Easily in my top five.
Just everything about it is so great from Cunt Fucking Kids to Midgets Killing Themselves on Drugs.

I think it might be time to finally watch this too.



Btw if you haven't seen this then you missed out on probably the best, funniest movie of last year.

I couldn't get through The Lobster it's just a bit too stilted and intentionally weird.
It makes Wes Anderson's characters seem warm and personable.

Anyway I'm keen to watch Outside which is a documentary about three gay Palestinian best friends living in Tel Aviv. It even shows a a queer palestinian whose family is completely accepting of him.
So it's pretty cool how it's showing stories and narratives that don't often get made.



Just like, a lot of people's perceptions of non western countries is that it's just hell for queer people, women, whatever, but the reality is messier than that.

I'm watching 10 Cloverfield Lane and John Goodman is doing a really scary scary version of my Dad right now.
Horror wise it's making my skin crawl atm.

Oh and I saw The Nice Guys and it was really good for a fun buddy action/comedy.

Going to watch Inherent Vice sometime too which will surely be good because of Paul Thomas Anderson.



By The way if you like being adventurous with your movies then definitely give this a go.
Try watching it when you're relaxed and out of it.

A Brilliant Young Mind:
I was a bit skeptical about it a first, but in the end I absolutely loved it. The scene with his mum at the end made me cry. It was definitely a beautiful movie. As realistic as it can get, nothing over the top and it tells a nice story. It really doesn't have a beginning or an end, but it doesn't need it. And... Asa Butterfield is still hot.


Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials:
It was pretty bad actually. I pains me to say this but I was quite disappointed with it. Especially when compared to the first Maze Runner which while not the best movie ever, at least had a point. The point of this one? Zombies I guess. And even Dylan O'Brien and Thomas Brodie-Sangster couldn't really save it. I mean those homoerotic scenes between Dylan and Thomas from the first movie are quite vivid in my mind. There was none of that in this movie.

I just watched it based on what you said in this thread. Very weird.

I certainly think the first half was better and I'm not sure how I felt about the emotionless characters. Perhaps it would have had more of an impact if the latter half had shown him discovering genuine romance as opposed to the warped idea of one provided by "the Hotel." Nonetheless, I did finish it and I enjoyed it in a very peculiar way.

So there was this netflix film called Circle and i heard from a housemate that it was a good watch so i was bored and decided to watch it. I won't lie its one of those stupidly simple films from an idea point of view but it was pretty smart especially towards the end. I would have probably thought the film was pretty bad but the end completed it. Was a really smart ending that took me by surprise, it was one of those films where of course it was going to have a twist. I just amazingly didn't see this one coming. If you have the spare time and like a thriller id say give it a watch

I just watched Ms. Peregrine and The House for Peculiar Children. So far so good, only somehow the climax and the ending doesn't satisfying much. The thrills are awesome, though. Overall pretty standard for me, but hey that is nice.

I watched Sully the other day, it was pretty underwhelming. Cute story, nonetheless.

I agree. It was an okay movie, but something was missing.

But it was nice to see Asa Butterfield again :D .

Been looking at In Bruges again with this. I think at this point it's safe to name In Bruges as my favourite independant film.
Plot Spoilers for a film from 2008.



BTW Kill List is another amazing British film about hitmen. Also a bit of horror thrown in. Highly recommend it.



Also here's a quick look at why most movies just kinda suck these days



Also I know I've mentioned it before but The Witch is a seriously fantastic slow burn religious horror film.

Between that and 10 Cloverfield Lane I've found my best Horror movies for a looooooong while.

A Monster Calls

Oh dear. Let's just say that I was not expecting this. But seeing that this was written by Patrick Ness I probably should have. I've cried because of movies before so that was nothing new. The amount of crying was. I just couldn't stop crying for the last 30 minutes of this film. This is a movie that looks like it's made for younger children and families. I would not suggest this movie for younger children. It is dark. Very, very, very dark. Sigourney Weaver has now played in two movies that made me cry. And she was as good as always. You have no soul if this movie doesn't make you cry.

The artwork and the CGI are very good, the soundtrack is excellent and story will just destroy your heart.
