You don't have a passport do you ThryllSeekyr?! If you do please visit Gordon first!

I quite liked Wolf Creek 2 althogh it is pretty nasty and you could see that it could give the unhinged some ideas.

I feel that way about Snow White. And yet still no confirmed reports of deaths by poisoned apples.

As told by my parents - my older brother was afraid of eating red apples after watching 'Snow White'. Wimp!

I watched 'Age of Ultron' yesterday. A few good action scenes aside, I wasn't that impressed. Certainly not as good as the first one.

Cheers

The Hulkbuster scene is a brilliant movie evocation of a classic comics full-issue rumble, all the better for its non-EuroUS setting. However, there's loads of other nice action set pieces in there, and deftly-handled character bits too. My only complaint was that it was too long and there really was too much jammed in to comfortably take it all in, and perhaps Coulson's TV resurrection took a bit of the heft out of proceedings (in itself appropriately comicky, mind). Mighty fun film, if overshadowed for me by the more straightforward less hectic Ant-Man.

Myself, I not like that or even close to thinking about wanting to murder foreigners unless the wrong buttons are pushed when meeting some body..

It's reassuring to know you wouldn't even think about wanting to rape and murder a group of backpackers "unless the wrong buttons are pushed."

Quote
I don't even have access to a firearm.

Yes, but didn't you say recently that you were thinking of getting one?  Which, given your anger management issues and frequent stories about non-existent peope sneaking into your house to mess with your stuff, sounds like a really terrible idea.

I don't want to own a weapon that lethal for the same reason I believe there are people sneaking into my house when I least expect them to take or just move or mess with my stuff.

Just watched Repo-man and again on another channel (It's feature of this Cable-Television!) and when first tuned in. I wondered if this was the same film as another that was either made in the 80's and or early 90's starting the Estevez/Sheen brothers. 

This version is kind dark and creepy, if not scary. If find bodily-organ repo-men very funny, then disregard that last statement and these people will replace their own organs with a cynthetic replacement.  Like my dad's fake ticker.....right near the beginning after you night time fly over of the city is shown with evidence future and I realise this film one of those that could represent a facet of Mega-City-One that could be explored one episode at time in a possible television series.

Anyway, it's also right at the start, right before the city fly over. That Jude (I Am The ) Law as a future repo-man shoots a woman after knocking out her intended lay for that evening. Who (Jude, not her lay!) a moment before, told her "There is no need for violence" or words to that effect and then it hit me that guns and shooting people might not be violent after all. It's just one of the most civilised ways to take somebodies life. If you don't get to carried away with it. It's not like hacking at somebody with weapon. Even stabbing somebody just once with a simple knife must be considered a civil mutilation as well.  Surgeons do this it with a scalpel when removing or replacing organs or other stuff.

Yet, more often than not, the result is the same and the victim is needs medical help or a coffin.

Which brings me to the reason why we had to have Slaine -Time-Killer, the use of leyser weapons to replace cutting, and hacking melee ones because the censors said so.

Anyway,  all the people living in this future must have ben virtually androids or synthetic humans with that hardware keeping them going.

The Man From UNCLE: sharp, funny. Nice period fashion. Lots of chemistry between the leads. Some plot points over-explained, and the ultimate resolution flagged up so you can see it a mile off, but enormous fun getting there. I'd be more than happy to see a sequel. At a whisker under two hours, it zips along nicely and doesn't outstay its welcome. Far worse ways to kill an afternoon.

Cheers

San Andreas - there's a bit where we watch the tsunami roll over some houses and it becomes clear that the scene is based on actual footage from the Japanese 2011 earthquake/tsunami, which just made me feel like I was watching snuff porn.  There's another bit where the chisel-jawed heroes get caught in the wave and say "hold on to something" and they do and survive and it just made me go "fuck this movie."
Usually being dumb is a defence against criticism for this kind of summer star vehicle, but this isn't dumb, it's cynical, and it's so devoid of hope or a human face that when Rock says "we rebuild" and the American flag wafts in the breeze, it becomes one of those rare films that I actually find offensive how little it thinks of its audience.

Lesbian drama When Night is Falling which I watched for the characterisation and narrative and not for all the nakedness. Boobs.

As Adam Sandler films go, it was okay. I did laugh at the line "we're being invaded by Galaga", but was the only one in the cinema who did.

Take away message? My five year old knew who Pac-Man was before the film.

It always amazes me that people go and see Adam Sandler movies.
Do people think that one day he'll make a good one.

Watched Coherence on Netflix and really, really enjoyed it. A neat Twilight Zoney concept that has enough tricksy moments that it'll probably hold up really well and reveal more on a rewatch, and enough creepy implications that it works just as well as a horror as it does a sci-fi brain hurter.

Don't want to say too much, always great to go in cold to these things, but would thoroughly recommend it. When it finished Netflix immediately queued up Primer so that's an indication of the kind of thing you're getting into.
