If you want depth it's totally the wrong movie, but that's kind of like going to KFC and complaining there is no healthy options lol, it's a junk food movie, just sit back and enjoy 

Totally agree. 

Years ago I say King Kong.  Walking out an older lady said it was so unrealistic.  And she was serious.  

Maybe PeterW and barrybeven are just old ladies.

Geez I must sound like a sour puss - i didn't like this either. Opening scenes were amazing, if not a little too long but I felt the rest of the movie lacked depth and direction. :(

You do realistic movies aren’t real right?  

Even the best movie of all time shawshank redemption wasn’t real.

Yeah, I get that. It was probably me not the pic, cos I actually kinda liked it - maybe I'm just getting old and cranky. On a positive note, I watched "I Tonya" again and I was completely blown away for a second time - great use of humor to provide a kind of ultra reality to such disturbing behavior. How cool is that  Shawn Eckardt (the bodyguard)?!

...and I see that as at 1/01/2020, i.e today,  "The Joker" is now on apple TV - I think I'll give that a crack tonight - looking forward to something "Bleak, violent, powerful; not your typical comic book movie"  and apologies in advance to all the shameful Robert Deniro haters on this thread!! :)

Parasite is a masterclass in story telling. To get a taste of what the director can do, catch Okja on Netflix. Any man who doesn't shed a tear has no heart.

Well the movie industry is going to take a massive hit.

Hopefully we will see some of these in 2020

New on Netflix - Spenser confidential is a kinda fun action thriller with Mark Wahlberg, Winston Duke and Allan Arkin.  I enjoyed this one.

Also on Netflix - Extraction with Chris Hemsworth. I was really looking forward to this but turned if off half way through. it just didn't deliver.

Was a very crap movie. After 10 minutes I said...how does this guy get acting jobs (Chris Hemsworth). Watch the movie and you'll see what I mean. Even the movie reviewers gave is a borderline 2/5. And said the only thing that save it was the amount of killing scenes.

Then go and watch '6 Underground" with Ryan Reynolds. Excellent movie.

We tried to watch Once Upon a Time In Hollywood and The Gentlemen recently.  We got about the point where Sharon Tate goes to some party before we turned it off, I guess about 30mins in.  I told my wife there was still 2 hours left and she pulled the pin.  We got half way through the gentlemen when we did the same.

Watched Parasite... Was a good movie with an interesting storyline but hardly mind blowing, cheap production and acting was like a telly movie, not sure it deserves 4 Academy awards. Maybe it's just that the bar is set so low these days..

Thanks for the heads up!  Is it worse than Suicide Squad?

6 underground was a terrible movie. the opening scene was ok but went for too long. Its a typical Micheal Bay film with too many unnecessary explosions.

I tend to agree, but to be fair, it was still way better than extraction and, for the record, there is no such thing as "too many unnecessary explosions" !!  :)

Really.... am surprised. It was ranked number 2 on IMDB's top 50 movies at present. For me Ryan Reynolds is likeable where as.... has anyone ver seen a good movie with Chris Hemsworth in it. And please...... noone say....what about the Marvel franchise.

Oh yeah?! What about Ghostbusters 2016?! - There was outrage that his epic portrayal of "Kevin the receptionist" was snubbed by the Academy for best supporting actor....!

I like Ryan Reynolds and he is about the only saving grace in the movie.

A good movie with Chris Hemsworth other than Avengers and Thor - Ragnarok is 12 strong

Our shopping centre team spoke to BCC the other day.  They won’t open here in qld until at least 100 persons and unfortunately you won’t see any blockbuster movies until the majority of cinemas open around the world as the studios don’t want to release on a small scale.  So not sure if we will see the new James Bond or Top Gun etc this year.  They will be show mainly the movies that were showing at the time the cinemas shut plus a few b grade movies.

Watched Miracle In Cell 7 on Netflix, pretty good movie and some great acting. Spanish with subtitles might put some off but I recommend 👍
