Watched Melancholia (2011) this week and didn't enjoy it so much, but to be honest I just wasn't in the mood for that kind of ethereal scifi/drama (think Solaris or The Fountain here). Lars von Trier (Antichrist) definitely has a good eye for the visuals though, and if in a different frame of mind I think I would have enjoyed this much more. I'll definitely give it another viewing in the future.

Awww I'm really looking forward to watching Melancholia! But it does indeed seem like you'd have to be in the right kind of mood for it, which is why I haven't yet.

The Muppets - yaaaaaaay. I thought it was funny.
Final Destination 5 - It was better than 4 and the twist was inventive, but it was meh. the deaths were graphic to the point it was just silly. and as usual barely any storyline

All the reviews I've seen have been terrible, yet I still want to watch it :/

Watched Gremlins last night with husband, we haven't laughed so much at a movie in ages!

I watched The Adjustment Bureau (2011) last night and really liked it. The ending might cause some folks to roll their eyes a bit but the execution was quite lovely and kept me interested throughout the whole film. Plus, any film with Terence Stamp in it tends to get my seal of approval. Definitely worth watching in my opinion.

Watched Casablanca (1941) tonight and seriously folks, Humphrey Bogart is the man!

Best film I have watched in ages... what other film could have Ingrid bergman wearing a salad bowl on her head and still look as gorgeous as she does? And Claude Rains? Seriously watch the film... he's the best thing sbout it.

Do you view everyone wearing a hat with suspicion now?

Just saw it last week, thought it was a bit cliche'd and trite but ended up enjoying it anyway (Hollywood ending and all)

I've been wanting to check out Melancholia for awhile, I probably will at some point when I'm in that Lars Von Trier kind of mood. Antichrist was a truly disturbing movie, some parts of it really stuck with me.

Have you seen any of his other films like Dogville or Manderlay? Very disturbing as well, but good. The man has a talent for destroying people emotionally with his movies, Dancer in the Dark was so brutal it made Bjork swear off acting for life

The Dead- Pretty good zombie flick that takes place in Africa.
Tower Heist- a lot funnier that I thought it would be.
Fright Night- I really liked this remake. I'm usually unimpressed with remakes but Colin Ferrel filled the role perfectly as Jerry and the rest of the actors did a great job. The CGI was a tad cheesy at times but overall it wasn't too bothersome.

The Adjustment Bureau - Meh, I thought it was going to be more of a thriller but it was watchable.
Apollo 18 - Not at all scary and I thought it was more like a mediocre X-Files episode.
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - It was fairly slow but good performances all round. It is the type of film that you have to watch rather than just sitting back and disengaging your mind.

Agree.

Sleeping Beauty - I'm 90% sure it was just pretentious and meaningless nonsense, but I'm 10% unsure because I am still thinking about it three days later, so at least it had an effect!

Empire of The Ants....hoot and a half.

Return of the Killer Tomatoes.....hoot and a half.

Elvira Mistress of The Dark....Too Cheesy for me....but it was cool that Jeff Conaway had a small part in it.

Hellraiser & Hellbound Hellraiser 2.....Its funny cause I love horror movies and have never seen these....I know there are a whole bunch of them but after seeing these too and finding them pretty dull not sure I will be watching the others.

Peace & Love

Dude there's like 50 famous actors in that movie!! I don't want to strain my brain trying to remember them all. Googling would be cheating right?

Have you ever seen Rat Race? It's somewhat an "updated" version of It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World .

I never understood the appeal of the Hellraiser movies. I saw one and that was enough for me.

Last movie I watched was the remake of The Thing . Of course not as good as the original but not bad either.

Yes, but which original Star Wars trilogy did you watch? There's like a hundred versions now.

It was on YouTube and sometimes I changed half way through a film. So there was some annoying CGI for no apparent reason in parts and then none in other parts. I'm sure Han shot first, which I didn't think you could even see anymore

To my knowledge the best indicator that you are watching the original Star Wars theatrical release is that during the opening crawl the words 'Episode IV - A New Hope' do not appear. Everything after that has been redone in some way by Lucas.

No, the best indicator that you're watching the truly original Star Wars theatrical release is that your phone has a cord and you are wondering what this new president Carter is going to do for the country.

Mystic Pizza - I only caught a bit of it as I haven't seen that film all the way through ever! It wasn't great but I like coming of age films.

I saw Rear Window (the Christopher Reeve version) and that was quite slow and plodding. I read on Wiki that Daryl Hannah is a vegan.

I watched Road House last night, it was absolutely ridiculous. Swayze's mullet was so coiffed and shiny. Like a terrible helmet of bad hair.
