Post a movie (or movies) you've seen recently and tell us what you thought. Doesn't matter if its new. I've been looking for some good ones to watch.

The last movie I saw was a 2012 film called Disconnect. Its essentially a psych thriller that focuses on a few ramifications of social media. It tells the story of 3 groups of people: one is a couple who gets their bank account stolen by a hacker (although this is the least interesting one). The second is a female news reporter who stumbles upon a website where guys age 12 and up "perform" for paying customers on webcam. The third group is a couple kids who catfish another guy from their school as a joke.

I give this movie a solid 8/10. Even though catfishing has been explored by the film industry before, Disconnect still makes it unique, engaging, and emotional. Webcam guys isn't something I've seen any movie or show bring up, so this also adds to the uniqueness. Without bringing up spoilers, the whole movie overall is very interesting and is a great watch for people interested in shows based around the effects of the internet's proliferation.

***Purge spoilers***

The last film that I saw was 'The Purge'. It was okay and the concept behind it was interesting, however I really disliked the protagonists family ( 'It's the only day of the year when is legal for people to kill my whole family, I know ! I'll let a random man into our house. I'm sure that won't endanger my family's lives or be the cause of most of the conflict in this film') and I felt the film didn't live up to it's concept. Also I felt there were a few plot holes, for example a lot of people would be against the Purge because their family members were killed in it, and I don't understand why people are willing to spend so much on defences for their houses when they could cut out the risk of being murdered in the Purge all together by going on holiday.

I recently watched "The Last Starfighter" again, an older sci-fi movie now approaching classic status. Great fun with Robert Preston's last film role. Also "Forbidden Planet" the first "real" sci-fi movie; yes, that's a young Leslie Neilson in a serious role.

If you have missed "This is Spinal Tap" a faux rock documentary, that's a good one.

I loved Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine because Cate Blanchet and Sally Hawkins' performances were so powerful. However, it is nothing new at all. Woody Allen could be accused of either artistic larceny or an homage to the great Tennessee Williams because it's a replica of A Streetcar Named Desire. The plot strategy demonstrates how vulnerable people in the US can be without back-up, and end up on the street unless there are kind strangers about to take care of you. Tennessee Williams mother, I believe, had mental health sufferings and the playwright at that time was probably struck by vulnerability and those not in a position to make it. The US has always been a melting pot of immigrants (Streetcar with all different people riding on it) pursuing the American Dream (Desire) of success. Fail, and you're in deep trouble... Woody Allen probably felt the story was as relevant today as it was back then even though there has been the introduction of Obamacare....

I saw Now You See Me. Now how many of you always predict what happens in the movies and generally get it right? Oh yeah, come on, it is quite a few of us. Now You See Me is one of the only movies where I left the theater with a sense of....with no better way to put it...Mind-Blown. I did not see anything coming about anything that happened. The best example is in the first 5 min. If you have not seen the movie see only the first 5 min. with the magic trick. All I am going to say is pick a card. Then go see the whole thing. It is literally the best magic movie you will EVER see. I watched it three times and still get chills at the reveal. Anyway, you have to see it to know how crazy awesome it was and anyone who has seen it, do not spoil anything. I'd have been so mad if someone had told me beforehand.

The Conjuring.
It's a real life horror story (there is proof) and it's really good. Best when watched with friends. It's simply amazing.

I've recently watched Road to Eldo Rado, Treasure Planet and Shrek. some of my favorites that I used to watch. I love them all for sentimental and nostalgic value pretty much. Even though they're meant for kids I think we all have the kind of movies that we love watching but seem ridiculous to everyone around us

What proof?
It's also a horrible horror film. No emotional suspense at all, just a bunch of jump-scares.

No spoilers.

2001 Space Oddisy: It moved way too slowly, partially because the visual was a massive part of it and was a big deal at the time, so they showed off allot. That, plus my being kinda drunk, made me miss the plot entirely. I'm not even sure what it was about.

American Hustle: The best thing I can say about it is the acting and the soundtrack. Allot of recognizable actors and a few not so commonly recognizable minor ones that I'm nevertheless a fan of. However, Christian Bale was nothing special in that movie, which was disappointing because he's easily one of my favorite actors. Otherwise, the acting and dialogue made it enjoyable but I didn't think it was anything special.

Yesterday I saw a movie staring Arnold Schwarzenegger called 'Sixth Day'. The film focuses on Cloning as it's main theme and stars Arnie as a family man in a future world were human cloning is possible, but illegal due to the 'Six Day Law'.
It was entertaining, but had a few plot holes.

My favourite piece of dialogue in the movie is when Arnie is going to get his dead dog cloned and has the following conversion with some anti-cloning protesters:

Extremist-Christian1: "Save your soul, God doesn't want you to go in there"
Arnie: "Then God shouldn't have killed my dog."
Extremist-Christian2: "ATHEIST!"
(me: hahahaha )

Ravenous 1999
Eh, 4/10. I enjoyed it, but I enjoy bad movies I suspect sometimes. Plot didn't make that much sense. Acting wasn't that good. Filming not that good. I did enjoy some of the music and one scene with a cliff.

Involves cannibalism, wendigos, murder, looked around the Mexican War era. Really I would give it a 8/10. The 4/10 is for other people, thought they might want it lower.

I've seen it twice. I would rate it 7/10.

I am fond of older movies.

Which one's specifically?

I like some older movies. My most preferred genres would be: war/survival/horror, comedy, and coming-of-age movies that were made in the 70's or 80's.

Westerns can be enjoyable, as well.

The last movie I watched was 'Fury'. It covers the last days of WW2 in Germany from the perspective of a select group of American troops.

I would rate it 9/10. It was everything a war movie should be.

I haven't seen a war movie in a while. They are good, but I find them a bit draining at times.

The spaghetti westerns hold some sentimental value to me, given that many of them were filmed quite near to where I spent years living in Spain.

'The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly' is the best movie from that sub-genre.

You should.

They don't have that effect on me. On the contrary, I find them quite riveting.
