Just finished watching

"Running on Empty" Hadn't seen it years, Classic Aussie car movie, no Z's but plenty of classic Aussie muscle.
Worth a watch.

Ex Machina (2014)

It's an interesting way to perform a Turin test, and for those that are on the geeky side of A.I. it might be a little interesting on just what might happen if true A.I were to be created. The story was decent, not spectacular, the sound editing I thought was pretty good. Not a movie I'd say anyone HAS to watch, but won't be completely un-entertaining. I'd give it a 6.5/10.

Alien Outpost (2014)

Typical earth is invaded by alien movie/pro military movie. Nothing new in this one, at all. Wasn't a waste of time, and it's a good watch if there's absolutely no other movie you want to see. 5/10, the photography was good, the action was good, but the lack of original content really brought the score down for me.

Not last night, but recently saw this on Netflix.

Hot Girls Wanted


But since it seemed topical...
http://www.viczcar.c....html#msg172842

Not sure I could give it a rating out of 10 because it was more an educational piece and insight into how the industry works. Basically young girls get chewed up and spat out the other side.

It Follows (2014) - An visual delight compliments an eerie soundtrack in this Indy horror that I enjoyed more than any other horror film I've seen in the last few years. It has floored me and has invigorated my taste for horror.

This is one of those movies that you either love or can't wait to be bloody over. The reviews on IMDb reflect this perfectly with very high scores and ridiculous 1/10's from angry viewers who hated it.

9/10

I have this one in my collection, but haven't watched it yet. I can tell I have to be in the right mood for it, so I'm waiting until I have some time for it.

I did watch Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) It's not as good as the first one, but has many hilarious moments, especially between the two commentators. Some interesting songs done in A Capella, lots of big names in it. I'd give it a 6.5/10, definitely watchable, but not a "must see".

You've hit the nail on the head there. If you're in the right mood you probably will enjoy most movies - even bad ones.

Got Pitch Perfect 2 on my list as well. I really enjoyed the first one.

Just rewatched This is England (2006).

Love this movie, partner used to get into the punk scene (some may say a generation too late - but we both think its just as relevant now, particularly in the political environment that exists currently). Wish I had discovered the music when I was growing up in a small town in North West Tassie...

Anyway, love the way it portrays the divide that arose among skins that saw the evolution into white supremacy views.

Not sure how much existed here in Aus (I think Perth saw a lot of more original skinheads before more nationalist views took over - maybe those who were around then can give some views). Anyway, punk gigs still happen so its good to go see some music now and then..

The Guest.

What can I say? I had no idea what it was going to be about, and I'm glad. I really suggest just watching it and seeing how you react.

I really liked this film for a whole bunch of reasons. Although I'm not sure everyone will see in it what I did. I loved the 80s infused soundtrack.

Interested in what others think, it is on Netflix I'd rate it 8.5/10.

Time to revive this topic.

 

Last night I watched "Eddie the Eagle". It was like a modern day "Cool Runnings" but much better.

 

 

Also has an 80s inspired soundtrack.

Gav you started (revived) this. So not last night but the best film I have seen in a long time is Hunting the wilder people. What a classic. I think we watched Eddie the eagle one week and saw this the next. Two very enjoyable evenings out gathering brownie points with the boss to be used on "Z time"

Jurassic World re-watch for me. I'm a bit of a sucker for popcorn flicks. Complete with a big bag of popcorn :)

Criminal http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3014866/

 

Wasn't actually too bad if you can suspend disbelief of the "transference of memories" and "taking over the military network "plot devices.

 

Lots of famous actors in it too.

Had a few stand out movies lately.

Numb was a good one
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4470266/
 
however, last night i finished watching Stranger Things, If you loved the 80's this is worth the watch
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4574334/
 


im also watching Mr Robot as the eps become available, Season 1 was brilliant, season 2 is shaping up pretty well so far too.
