Re: My Top 250 Movies

Well made list but a summary of the films would be good, especially for those some haven't watched (a few here for me!)

Re: How many films have you watched so far this year?

You guys have remarkable numbers....mine have dropped off this here. I haven't kept track but I'd be surprised if it was more than 20. New cinema has been relatively boring (The Harder They Fall is...

LOL I just highlighted the version of the film because that's the one available for free on Prime, there's another version you can rank or buy. Just a bit of consumer update.

Honestly, all I can say is that's what these films are like.

As for Lawrence of Arabia, it's not a sword and sandals epic but even so, it's hardly nuanced. Lawrence is the great white, blonde...

Re: Why I find Gladiator (2000) to be slightly annoying

The story is not nuanced and there are no shades of grey to the characters but that's not how epics work. These types of movies are always great, resounding stories of good versus evil. The...

Good review!

Re: Which Die Hard movie did you like the most?

Possibly the easiest poll ever. Die Hard 1....but the original sequels are ok, Die Hard 2 is pretty good but it feels a bit off and Die Hard 3 has an interesting concept and I really enjoyed it!

Re: Raised by Wolves (Ridley Scott, HBO)

I have seen about 4 or 5 episodes and the show is all over the place. It is so poorly made which is sad as the premise is interesting and the two main leads are very good.
