Ooh, that reminds me. “The Magnificent Seven“. Classic.

And speaking of 13, “Thir13en Ghosts“ with The Monk.

13 assassins had that little fella Banderas in there from memory.
Both of the “Magnificent Seven“movies were good.

I D’Loaded a wierd one coupla days ago.
It was called “brightburn”. Another Superman flown in from Space.
BUT.. This one grows up a baddie. Hmm.
Watched around 1/2 hr of it then deleted.
Some might like it. Maybe.

The right “Kickass Torrents” is still good. Just use a floating
location thing.

Snowpiercer is a nice dystopic film for sure and it's ending is more realistic than I thought it would be. Thumbs Up But I didn't like the unrealistic machine that powers the train and which is the basic element of the dystopic idea. The shooting when the train passed through the bend was also far from realistic. How can someone with a handgun aim and hit a moving target in several hundred feet away. Facepalm But apart from that it's not bad. I like the part when one of the passengers was forced to hold his arm outside of the train... Big Smile

Clueless...mhhh....Alicia Silverstone... Love

Castaway....Wiiiiilssssson!!! Big Smile

I never forget the crash landing scene when I saw it in the cinema. Shocked

13th Warrior was Banderas. It was from a true story adapted by Michael Crichton and originally called Eaters of the Dead. I loved the book, but I’m a fan of all his work. 13 Assassins is a Japanese Samurai film with one of the greatest battle scenes ever filmed. It had to be done with one take because of the scale of destruction. It’s also 45 minutes long, talk about coordination.

It should have remind you “seven samurai” which is the original and is worth watching, definitely in my top 50 and was one of my favorite movies for a decade (I watched it 4 or 5 times).

Beowulf is a true story?!

That being said the early chapters are loosely based on Ahmad ibn Fadlan’s journals.

Speaking of supermen-from-space… “I Come In Peace“. LOL

Awesome flick…

Actually, lots of Dolph’s offerings were pretty good mindless fun. “The Punisher”, “Universal Soldier”, etc.

Most of Lance Henricksen’s as well (“The Terminator”, “Stone Cold”, CE3K, “Pumpkinhead”, too many to list).

Early Steven Seagal flicks, more mindless fun. Chuck Norris, too. Just kick back and enjoy the revengemotif.

Oh, “Signs“! MNS could be hit or miss (mostly miss), but this was awesome.

Whoa… how could I possibly forget?

“The… Lost… Boys”. ‘Nuff said.

And “Flatliners”, too, also an awesome flick.

I took a break from watching horror films and watched...

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018).

It was really good.

One of the best biopics I've ever seen.

It helps if you like Queen's music, but you don't have to.

(I'm a big Queen fan, so that was a bonus.)

I especially liked the musical event at the end of the movie.

It was a great way to end an epic film.

Kill Bill will always be my favorite. It’s also my guilty pleasure.

I used KC Lights on my pickup just to test how it'll go for long drive. I am pleased with its performance.

I've seen all of Quentin Tarantino's films.

They're very good.

I liked the Kill Bill series a lot.

...

I just saw...

Event Horizon (1997).

It's an excellent horror/sci-fi film.

Considering how old the movie is, it holds up pretty well.

It's directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, the director of the Resident Evil series.

I think I remember EH… slightly. No aliens, but kind of a Devil/Hell vibe to it, iirr.

Re-saw AVP t’other day. Butchered for teevee, though.

Another one by Mr Anderson… (said in my “best” Hugo Weaving voice)

I saw Toy Story 4 (2019) today at the theatre.

It's really good, just like the rest of the series.

I think Toy Story 3 was the best, but #4 is an excellent family film.

Current top 3: The Nice Guys (Here’s the synopsis from IMDB: In 1970s Los Angeles, a mismatched pair of private eyes investigate a missing girl and the mysterious death of a porn star.)

Mad Max: Fury Road

and Baby Driver

Still love “The Driver“, “Summer School“, and “Suicide Kings“, and should rewatch them soon.

I really liked Mad Max: Fury Road and Baby Driver.

I'll have to catch The Nice Guys.

I saw Life (2017).

I really liked it.

If you like horror sci-fi thrillers, you'll probably like it too.

The movie was interesting throughout, and I especially liked the ending.

 

EDIT:

For almost all movies, I pause them many times throughout the film and take breaks.

But I didn't do that with Life.

It captured my interest until the end.

I'm surprised it has only a 6.6/10 on IMDb.

I would rate it much higher because I never got bored.
