    Possum - i have a feeling people's milage may vary on this one. For me it hit a few key points - firstly has one of my fave actors, (ever since his amazing turn in The Borgias as a fucking badass assassin), the concept is kind of horror based which I'm into lately - and the sound design and visuals are both well attended to. Its also 85 mins. But - it's slow, there's only a few cast members - and you gotta be on it's vibe to go with it. But i think its a remarkably effective film with some real depth to every frame. Those willing to give it a chance might be happy they spent the time with it, as I did - and it has a particularly strong final sequence. Also its creepy as fuck without being cheaply creepy.

    Overlord - felt a bit less than the sum of its parts but ultimately it was a fun romp! Basically its premised on this idea that the occult shit the nazis were into lead to them making some zombie super soldiers.

    Really high production value and some great sequences throughout - you can surely do worse even if you could easily do better. ;)

  3. Burning lives up to the hype - great suspenseful story, one of the best of the year.

    Is it available for streaming?
     
  5. It just came out on DVD last week, so you should be able to find it.

    This is exceptional news for Christopher Nolan fans like myself who only enjoy watching his Batman films on the big 70mm IMAX. The whole trilogy is coming to Cinesphere in April.

    ‘Dark Knight’ Trilogy Returning To Theaters In Imax 70mm


    I'm not very fond of watching his movies on home viewing formats, his films are made for the big screen and watching them on small screens don't do them justice.

    Vice worth seeing for Bale alone....

    ...and not much else. Felt like it was a good concise history of Cheney but a lot of conversations and dialog felt more like a liberal's imagining of what Cheney and Rumsfeld would have said vs what they actually might have said.

    They hit a lot of the key points one would make about Cheney but all told something too artificial about the whole enterprise, and this permeates through the dialog to infect the visual style in attempts to have some fun with the film medium (like the credits rolling halfway through). Sometimes these moments feel more hackneyed than playful.

    But bale's performance is compelling enough to drag you through all that!

    We bought our tickets for Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy in 70mm IMAX being shown at the Cinesphere. It is a one day event on 4/20 and with date there will surely be lots of legal potheads coming out for it. LOL 2 of the 5 cities showing it has already sold out. Toronto will definitely sell out too. Get your tickets if you are a true Nolan fan that wants to see this on the big IMAX screen again!

    Christopher Nolan’s 'Dark Knight' Trilogy is Returning to Select IMAX® Theatres

    SPECIAL EVENT - The Dark Knight Trilogy - Ontario Place
     
  11. Love, Death and Robots - fantastic series on Netflix. It's basically little bite sized sci fi fantasy in the Heavy Metal vein. Can't recommend this enough. Alexd, I know you love your sci fi, this is likely what the doctor ordered.

    watched the first 4 last night. Even ones i am less interested in story wise I am fully engaged in visually.

    First one is my fave of the first 4 so far!
     
  13. I really liked Zima Blue. And Lucky 13 was really good as well.
     
  14. If ever you get nostalgic for the Comfort Zone, I would recommend Climax whole heartedly.

    It's like a Step Up movie written by Hunter S Thompson having a bad trip in French.

    I wasn't planning on going to see "Pulp Fiction" at Cinesphere's big screen this weekend, but after seeing QT's new trailer for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" I may go now. LOL



     
  16. Watched Deep Cover again last night. Bill Duke (Mack from Predator) directed this odd/semi blacksploitation film half New Jack City drug movie of the 90's. Far better than it should be and the odd coupling of Lawrence Fishburne and Jeff Goldblum in the leads makes for a far more enjoyable than I remember it being.

    This was a good movie, on heavy rotation during the ppv Viewers Choice era of Cable. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Saw Jordan Peele's new movie "Us" and will say that I actually liked it. I've only seen his other film "Get Out" once in the theatre, but from what I can remember I like this sophomore flick more. Most people are saying the very opposite, but I never got the hype and praise given for his first film? Then again these days, I see every brand new movie on edibles now, so I'm sure my movie's perception is distorted. LOL

    Us (2019) - IMDb

    Look forward to seeing what Jordan Peele does next month with his reboot of "The Twilight Zone" on TV.
     
  23. Us was fantastic.

    They added Gravity in 3D to the Cinesphere Lineup - opens the weekend of the Avengers. Might go see that instead of going with the avengers rush. It is a must see in IMAX 3D, just for the spectacular opening shot alone.

    The Beach Bum looks like a riot. Totally going to that in the theaters completely baked.

    Beautiful Boy. I don't think that there is much expectation in the way of "breaking new ground" when it comes to addiction movies, which could be a good thing here. It's well made, and all that you expect to see are there, and it doesn't preach or glorify. It's a decent weekend afternoon mature flick.
