    I watched 3 billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri. Enjoyed it, some nice little comedic moments to break up the drama

    I was pleasantly surprised when I watched that one.

    lol yeah, cant disagree with that. Movie is getting panned by most. But I admit I did laugh when she gave that patient a massive overdose.

    Well, it’s 8 days into the new year and I may have watched the sh*ttest movie I will see this year.
    Sleepwalking In Suburbia(Foxtel).
    It’s a story about a woman who sleepwalks around the suburbs having a sexual encounter with a neighbour. This sets of a chain of events around paternity, infidelity & murder.
    The acting is wooden & forced at best but so bad I watched until the end(main actress & an early girl on girl kissing scene probably helped keep me interested)!
    A classic D grade thriller.

    Oh yeah that was quite hilarious. There were so many hidden messages in that movie too in regards to all kinds of social and economic problems. (ie the world ending from global warning, the problem that society has with prescription drugs). It was painful to watch and I wanted my two hours back after it was finished haha

    Watched 3 billboards.

    Might be my favourite Frances McDormand performance and and easy top 3 fav move of the year.

    Sam Rockwell too, so good.

    I just watched "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom". The movie copped a bit of flak back in the day and was compared as the worst of the trilogy when it once was a trilogy. In comparing it to the fourth one though, this one is like an academy award winning production. I still consider the 4th one to be in my top ten worst movies I've watched at the movies. It is probably my biggest disappointment. Im sure in his quiet moments, Ford would wish he didn't do the fourth one.

    I think it is a great watch. Lots of fun in a 'not trying to be too cool' kind of way.

    Caught the last twenty minutes of Ghostbusters on telly the other night so just chucked on blu ray.

    Gosh it's fun.

    I was 8 when it came out and was one of the most exciting things of my childhood. Still kicks arse now.

    Perfect blend of horror comedy, SPFX and pacing.

    Homefront - 6.5/10

    With James franco and Jason Statham, average storyline and some good action just didn't really understand the role of francos character. Was a decent movie to watch on the train home after a long work day

    Some of you geeks might like this:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6177752/

    World of Darkness doco. Tracks the rise and fall (and rise?) of Vampire the Masquerade and associated RPGs. Pretty good if you played it (I did) and interesting even if you didn't, to see its influence on pop culture.

    Infinity Chamber 6/10 - Interesting premise of a man trapped in a cell trying to fool a bot using a recurring memory; a bit like Source Code but without the glaring plot holes. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by Black Mirror lately but this movie just didn’t have a good knockout punch.

    The Disaster Artist.

    8/10.

    Both Francos, although mainly James, put in great performances.

    Makes me want to download and watch The Room now.

    Saw the Jumanji remake. Eh really not my type of movie. Very much aimed at teenagers I think. Still a good premise and some decent action.

    6/10.

    Darkest Hour - British backroom parliamentary politics in the first month under Winston Churchill's leadership. You are going to love or hate it.

    Barely a false note anywhere for mine.:thumbsup: :a:

    Not sure tv shows count but 12 Monkeys not the movie, which was cool, the series on Netflix. I give it worth a watch.

    Patti Cakes. Liked it way more than I expected. Bit more lighthearted, but not by much, version of 8 Mile with a female lead.

    What Happened to Monday. Really liked this near future semi sci fi, thriller.

    Brigsby Bear. Not everyone's cup of tea but an enjoyable indie film.

    Daddy’s Home 7/10 - Exactly what’s on the tin, a bit light fun with good chemistry all around and just the right dose of silliness. Will Ferrell dials it down just enough and Marky Mark is his usual reliable self.
