Zootopia was wonderful. What a great time for animated movies.

Warcraft was fucking great. It's not only the best video game movie adaptation to date, it's genuialy an awesome movie. The story is crystal clear, regardless of your knowledge of the Warcraftverse (I mean seriously, everything basic, especially character motivations, is explained). Great music, INCREDIBLE CGI (this is the level of quality that Hobbit should've strived for), amazing attetion to detail. Can't recommend it enough for everyone.

The Fundamentals of Caring (currently on Netflix, as its their original movie) was such a sweet and heartwarming tale. Just right for a Sunday aftertoon. Would recommend.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.  This is actually quite a good film.  The current wife and I enjoyed it.

LOL, i disagee on everything you just said. Probably one of the worst video game movie adaptations ever. The movie made absolutely no sense. Character motivations were ambiguous at best. the CGI looked just awful, like it was done by a 8yo on a crappy home computer. Don't' even remember the music, it was probably so generic and unimaginative. No attention to detail whatsoever, just look at those stupid full plate armors. I recommend to stay away from this pile of horse manure.

Haven't seen it yet so i can't really say, but the remark about the incredible CGI did raise my eyebrow a little bit because the cgi in the teaser trailer i watched some while ago, looked pretty fake. but they could have improved it in the final movie and maybe it was just not the best scenes.

And it seems also that the movie was a flop in all countries except china, where it supposedly breaks all records but there are already rumours/indications that those numbers were tampered with by the chinese company who owns the producing firm
Legendary Pictures. Maybe just conspiracy theories but who knows.

Re: Some movies I have recently watched

I saw warcraft, and while i did enjoy the moments where I recognized the units and characters from the games, the plot had me rolling my eyes for most of the movie, it was a bit dumb. If you are a big warcraft fan you would like the movie for the nostalgia (and Warcraft 2 was the game that got me into RTS games back when I had my 486DX), but the plot cliches were a  bit over the top, fine for a game, not fine for a movie. So as a movie crap, as a game cinematic -  amazing.

Re: Some movies I have recently watched

ARQ - wow - now that was a great sci-fi movie, basic plot - time loop! I enjoyed it so much I had to post it somewhere and this place was the only one that came to mind. I expected it to be a bit "meh", but the movie jumped into the plot straight away from the first 30 seconds. Totally skipping character development and all the other crap leaving you to figure out what is going on with the world and the characters themselves as the plot unfolds - which is something I enjoy a lot.

IMDB only gives it 6,5 I give it a 8.0-8.5 and that is while not taking into account the low budget.

Re: Some movies I have recently watched

i watched Moon with my doesn't-like-scifi son and he loved it, to the point he said he would like to see more movies like that... my immediate reply was "there are no movies like that"... anybody have any suggestions that would fulfill this criteria..? (2001 came to mind, but i think that might be a bit too heavy for him.)

xzeal, regarding ARQ, it was indeed great, though i could not help but feel they could have shaved a half hour off of it and made it a brilliant Twilight Zone episode...

Re: Some movies I have recently watched

You're right, there isn't anything.  Like you say, possibly 2001, but that's definitely too heavy (but great nevertheless).

What about Oblivion?  Not really the same (and not anywhere near as good), but I seem to remember when I watched it, they'd ripped off an aspect of Moon.

Otherwise, what about Silent Running?  Or Sunshine?  Or Event Horizon?

Re: Some movies I have recently watched

ah, thems some goods suggestions gb... i straight up haven't seen Oblivion, so that will be a good one for us, Silent Running i saw as a kid, but falls into that 'i know i've seen it, but don't remember the movie' category... the other two i feel kinda stupid for not thinking of... both i own on disc, and i even watched the commentary for Event Horizon a few weeks back... and Sunshine... not thinking of that one hits hard... damn i love that movie... cheers...

Re: Some movies I have recently watched

Just watched Train To Busan. It's a Korean zombie movie. Actually very good. Zombies kind of similar to World War Z the way they swarm.
I would recommend if you're a fan of the genre

Legion. If you like religious apocalyptic stuff then go ahaid and watch, but otherwise avoid this movie. Well action scenes were ok, but otherwise overall the idea was crap. 5/10

I agree. I watched the first episode and was bored senseless about 3/4 they way through. I think you would have to be high on something first to even contemplate watching it. I cannot see this crap series lasting.

... I actually liked the first episode despite it being one of those "super powers" tv shows which aren't really my cup of tea.

Re: Some movies I have recently watched

I watch all the super hero shows, and think that Legion would probably be better if I was off my tits while I watched it.

I think it's trying to be too weird and up it's own arse.  I get bored through most of it, and that's never good.

You do realize that Legion the movie and Legion the series have nothing to do with each other.

Re: Some movies I have recently watched

Rewatched the 4 riddick movies again (one of them an anime)

... still damn good - every single of them.

So many good scenes in "the chronicles of riddick".

Antisocial bad-asses with morality that deifies social conventions appeals to me for some reason.

Almost tempted to replay all of the PC games now, too bad I don't have the time sad (they actually fit in perfectly with the franchise).

Legion the movie has the TV series continuation called Dominion

Legion the TV show is completely seperate.
