    Cool Which movie did you last see?

    Just, literally ten minutes ago, finished watching Julio Medem's "Vacas"; very much a moviemaker's movie, a simple yet engaging plot and picture, comparable to say "The Seventh Seal".

    I like it for it's obvious cultural and stylistic differences to UK and US movies, it has some brutal realism but doesn't dwell on any one particular theme or scene for at all long.

    It is markedly not at all predictable and raises some pertinent questions regarding family values, gender dominance, and the priorities of the individual.

    Well shot and easy viewing, just don't be a reactionary .

    Ramen Heads — a Japanese documentary about ramen chefs. Really good. It made me hungry. Fortunately, I got to go to a great local ramen restaurant afterwards!

    We watched "The Accountant" last night. We both agreed it was better than we thought it would be.

    The last film I saw was "Red Sparrow"... reminds me of the old Cold War flicks: the Russians are the sadist/psychotic bad guys and the CIA agents are the really good guys.

    I watched Ex Machina on a flight to China recently. Then day before yesterday I watched Annihilation. Both films directed by Alex Garland (author of The Beach, among other things). The first film I thought was superb, the second was good but flawed. Worth a look.

    The latest new (to me) movie was Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. It was lots of fun. I think the Rock can pull off very good comedic roles.

    However, the latest movie, as of last night, is My Neighbour Totoro. I my kids just love that movie.

    I was able to bring a hard drive online with tons of movies on it. I thought it was a goner. My daughters wanted to watch After Earth. That was after we watched Jumanji.

    What did you think of After Earth? I put it up next to Battlefield Earth as one of the worst movies ever made. Jaden Smith's acting career peaked with The Pursuit of Happyness, and his father made that film great. Will couldn't save After Earth from Jaden.

    I agree. Not the best movie but it was better than Battleship. Lol

    Yeah. Battleship was pretty bad. I think the acting was slightly better, but a board game didn't need to become a movie.

    We watched "Life."

    We had already seen it on the plane last September, but it's more difficult to concentrate on everything on the tiny screen, when you're being disturbed quite frequently. I have to say that I thought it was better when we watched it last night, and I totally forgot the ending from seeing it on the plane. I think I must have fallen asleep.

    "Black Panther"

    Which is a very, very good movie, superhero identity non-withstanding.

    We watched Atomic Blonde a couple nights ago. I wasn't expecting much. It was better than I expected. Pretty standard spy-based action movie, but the way the story is told is a bit of a break from the usual. Ending was unexpected.

    Recently watched both the John Wick movies; very nice, looking forward to number three next year.

    I saw Deadpool 2 yesterday. Loved it also a preview for some adult Muppet cop comedy thing "the happytime murders" I'm afraid to post the link to the preview as it is NSFK or work.
