    ***NO SPOILERS***

    Unless you give fair warning, don't spoil.

    This is a catch-all for movies made available on all platforms and all circumstances.

    No child pron, @nadtcgray.

    Watched Midsommar the other night. Same people that did Hereditary.

    It wasnt scary at all, but was pretty strange and a little disturbing. Felt like it was longer than it needed to be. Still kept me interested the whole time tho

    I just watched On The Waterfront for the first time in at least 15 years, without much memory beyond the key scenes. My DVD copy was burned by myself about 15 years ago and this was my first try running the copy live. Found myself deeply moved compared to 18 year old me. Most people get caught up in Brando's Contender speech but I was with him in the pigeon rooftop. The entire thing is fucking beauty.

    I watched a cam version of Doctor Sleep yesterday while lazily relaxing in bed.

    I fell sleep. The irony isn't lost on me.

    But it looks promising. I'll check it out again sometime when I'm less tired.

    The Shining is one of my favorite movies ever. Love the book (Shining) but remember Dr Sleep not being crazy awesome.

    Still very much look forward to how they present everything on screen. Also, T6 (is that the correct number of Terminators where I won't upset the actors that need a paycheck) will get a glance in theater?

    Chainsaw is my favorite horror movie ever. I like horror movies that make you feel depressed, dirty, itchy, etc... when it just you feeling bad. If I get a scare here or there, that's a bonus.

    Midsommar looked odd and off-putting, so I plan on giving it a watch. Though I now realize I still haven't watched Hereditary and really wanted to. I'm horrible at watching movies I haven't seen before.

    In sophomore English class, our teacher did a thing where we'd read a book, watch an adaptation, and go over the differences, strengths / weaknesses of the media, etc. It was such a great way to get us to see themes, minute details, etc.

    I don't remember much of reading Waterfront (I don't even remember if it was a play or a novel). But that movie and Brando's performance. Even as a 16 year old 2 kool 4 u jerk, I remember just thinking, "wow".

    Also, we watched Romeo and Juliet, and that quick part with Hussey... it was an all boys' Catholic school, so the scene got some approval.

    Thought it might have promise but "Good boys" sucked. Bunch of dildo / sex toy jokes that became really predictable (and sad) that's about it. Had higher hopes for it.

    Watched Angry Birds 2 admittedly for the kids but have re watched and laughed on repeat watching again (bathroom scene)

    Stuber: bombed in the box office for a reason. I love Dinesh

    On my horror / sci-fi Halloween kick did the following:

    Not sure who it was who recommended but really liked "The Taking of Deborah Logan". The ending...so good.

    Scary Stories to tell in the dark was a "intro to horror for pre teens." Had promise, could have been terrifying but fell short.

    Annihilation- Not sure why I hadn't come across this sooner, great one

    The Silence on Netflix- good concept but fell flat due to it following a similar movie which was clearly better (A Quiet Place)

    Probably my favorite class in college was film and lit.

    I was probably the one who recommended The Taking of Deborah Logan. Great film.

    Just saw Doctor Sleep and loved it. I was worried from the previews that they'd lean too heavily on footage from The Shining but...

    Some spoilery but not so spoilery stuff...

    They re-shot every flashback scene with lookalikes and spot on costumes and sets. The actor playing Scatman Crothers' Dick Hallorann was possibly the best cover of a character since ever. My God, the new guy nailed it.

    The young actress playing Abra Stone was very impressive, Ewan was good as always and Rebecca Ferguson as Rose the Hat... perhaps the most attractive bad character in movie history. She's doing awful things but you can't help but love her.

    I feel the same way. I'm looking forward to watching it again without dozing off the entire time.

    My guy. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. At the very least, how great is Rose settling down to astral plane. She is soooo fine.

    He did also watch it on some SHIT ASS cam video. This deserves a theatrical watch.

    Just finished watching The Wolf Man (1941). Been a long time since I've watched it. It's a great film. Lon Chaney Jr. is the best Wolf Man.

    I'm all settled in and just started The Mummy (1932). I love these old horror movies.

    Fuck yeah, love the classics! I assume you're working toward the original Frankenstein? That's my favorite of the OG's.

    Just re-watched The Cincinnati Kid on Netflix for the first time in 15-20 years and thought it was excellent. Without giving spoilers, you get Steve McQueen playing high stakes poker against Karl Malden and Edward G. Robinson (the guy on which Hank Azaria crafted the voice for Chief Wiggum on The Simpsons) and Ray Charles sings the theme song. Quintessential movie for gamblers to watch.
