    Been a good movie streak lately

    They live
    The thing (1982)
    This is spinal tap
    Carrie (1976)

    The only bad ones were bill and ted face the music and the new mutants both really bad IMO.

    Watched Kill Bill Vol 1 again last night. I have never been a big Uma fan but boy she was born to play that role. An underestimated performance......she actually made it believable that she was an elite hit woman. That scene with the Crazy 88 is one of the greatest fight scenes of all time.

    Django Unchained. First time seeing this and it’s definitely something I should’ve watched sooner. Such a good movie.

    Great movie . Have watched many times .
    Typical Tarintino .
    The opening 20 mins is probably the best opening 20 mins of western cinema ever .
    Sci Fi ...T2s opening wins
    War .saving private Ryan .

    Watched American Gangster for the first time last night.

    It didn't grab me like i was hoping for. Good nonetheless and filled in a couple of hours while I had the house to myself.

    Have not seen the 1982 version of The Thing since it was released back then.
    The 1976 version of Carrie is so well done, it still creeps me out now. Saw a bit of the 2013 version of Carrie on you tube , what a load of tripe.

    With the exception of scarface and the Mummy I can't think of any remakes that surpass the original. ...and if you thought the Carrie remake was bad ...try this one on for size lol

    I’ve had my baby bro staying over the last week and he binged the Mandolorian, he loved it by the way and the conversation came up on the sequel trilogy and he hadn’t seen the last two movies.

    So with great regret and a lot of alcohol I watched them both with him, holleeeeeee sheeeeet they are even worse than I remembered them. I think the Rise of Skywalker is somehow a worse movie than the last Jedi and though I hate it more. My bro couldn’t believe how bad they were he thought I was exaggerating as usual. His first question was how do you have so much money and amazing source material and come up with something so horrible???? Excellent question you man baby!!!!

    The Thing (Kurt Russell one) is a remake that is better than orginal.

    Also Scarface and The Fly.

    But yeah pretty rare

    Shocking truth bomb: you'd have to have the mind of a child to think the originals were great.

    Either that, or you saw them before you were 7 and have irrationally strong nostalgia.

    Well I was about 6 when I watched the original and not much older when I watched the other two. And sure when I watch them now I can see their faults but I love the characters and the story. The sequel trilogy had boring characters with a non existent plot.

    It’s telling none of 10 their new shows have anything to do with the sequel trilogy shit show.

    I didn't see any of them until I was in my early 20s. Age counts for a great deal, the 8 year old next door reckons EPs 1-3 are the best

    The Wave
    Recorded this off SBS ages ago about a crevice collapsing in the Norwegian Alps causing a huge tsunami which devastated everything in it path, it was a well done disaster movie with great character and tension build up, could see bits of the 70s disaster films Earthquake and The Poseidon Adventure in it. It had a sequel called The Quake which i watched a few months ago.

    How Can You Mend A Broken Heart-The Bee Gees story.

    Just saw this at the Dendy this afternoon, wow, what a roller coaster ride their lives were, highs, lows and everything in between, bought back some great memories but also some really sad bits which i can remember as clear as day. Such a huge back catalogue of great songs and so many famous songs written for other artists. Even if you are not a fan it is a very interesting doco.
