Ok, well I'm always looking for new movies to watch, so I think it'll be cool to have this thread. Tell us the last movie you watched and maybe write a little review, maybe give a score out of 10 o

Who doesn't like Toy Story?  Absolute fucking tossers that's who. 

Caught the last hour of ‘The Sandlot’ Fucking hell I hadn’t watched it since I was a child. I was glued to it. So nostalgic.    Nothing ever beats that first group of mates you have. Wish I cou

We started watching Mortdecai yesterday.

Holy shit what a horrible horrible movie. After 20 minutes or so we had enough. Not funny at all, no clue what the heck was even going on, super annoying.

1/10. Just...don't watch it.

To The Bone - 8/10

I was worried about watching a film about anorexia because I'm a fat fatty and the whole concept is alien to me but the trailer was good, and it was written and directed by Marti Noxon who worked on Buffy so I was intrigued (as I have yet to meet someone who is more weirdly obsessive with that show than me). It was fucking good, it was funny, it was emotional and it didn't glamorise anorexia whatsoever. it had some wonderful shots and interesting audio choices that I appreciated, the only reason it isn't higher than an 8 is because it felt very '28 days / Girl, Interrupted' in the setting and style and there's other films like that... it goes with the territory of any addiction really and it's not like I dislike that as a concept, but the unoriginality of that setting kind of undermined the power of the message for me.

My wife watched that the other day ... I sat on the couch next to her and pretended I wasn't watching it too. It was pretty okay.

Dunkirk. Fantastic film! Loud and visually stunning with none of the excessive length (Batman) or philosophical bullshit ("love transcends space and time" ugh) that plague Nolan's other films. Even the usual "homefront" stuff that often seeps into war films with shoehorned romances and useless female characters was completely absent in the film. Nothing is revealed about the characters' past, because why would any of it matter? It was also kinda interesting and effective that you never actually see any Germans, only their fighters and bullets.

Also kinda depressing to watch it now on the eve of Brexit. So many were sacrified on the understanding that British liberty ultimately hinges on the preservation of liberty on the continent. And now they have stupid old folks shitting on the graves of British soldiers.

Atomic Blonde. Fun and stylish, turn your brain of to enjoy for maximum effect, but I appreciate the stunts and the fact that it was real people doing the choreography and not videogame cgi characters bouncing around on screen.

Suburbia 1996: one of those true 90s films, top notch dialogues and great performances throughout. Even if the film looks like it doesn't really go anywhere, it was so cool to watch. Giovanni Ribisi was great, his character (Jeff) and Steve Zahn's character (Buff) were also so look-alike to Billie Joe and Tre Cool back in the day haha

Then a Carpenter's cult I never got the chance to see before, Big Trouble In Little China. I told my dad and he said: "You've never seen Big Trouble in Little China?!!!? How can I trust you now Elisa? How?"   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Okja. Movie about a girl from South Korea who grows up with a giant GMO-produced pig that her grandfather was hired to raise by a GMO company. 10 years later they come back for it because it was the most successful GMO pig and she goes on a mission to get it back. Sounds weird I know, but it was a good movie. 8/10.

Just watched it! Good movie! The story is rather straightforward,  good vs bad is very black and white. 

Just a nitpick, but in several parts the soundtrack didn't really work. 

7.5/10

Spoiler

The final scene where Mija en Okja walk away from the slaughterhouse while the other animals are following them from behind  the gate, really got to me. Very moving.

Agreed! The thing I liked the most about it was that it was pretty quirky, which made the good vs bad theme not too tiring. 

My favorite part of the movie was the chase between the animal rescuers and the GMO company. Pretty funny! LOL at the girl who tried to take the selfie with Okja as she was destroying the store. Also the apathetic truck driver guy. ?

Gotta love vintage Kurt Russell.  Big Trouble felt a bit too dated for me but The Thing, Escape from New York are absolute classics.
