I just watched the Richard Linklater trilogy "Before Sunrise", ''Before Sunset", and "Before Midnight". Quite touching!

I saw "siren". The movie was super duper awesome. An horror movie though, it was thrilling, the excitement was so popping, action-packed, suspense-filled, comedy-laced. it made my day

I saw Life of the Party for a second time, and I liked it okay the first time, but it was hard to watch the second. It could use more jokes, and it's heavy-handed with the plot, which has a lot of holes. I love Melissa McCarthy, but this doesn't compare to some of her other performances.

Hello! I’m new to this website but am extremely happy I found it. Reading and watching movies are my only two passions in life at the moment:)

The last movie I watched was Call Me by Your Name and to be honest, it wasn’t as great as I had hoped. My friends were raving about it and I absolutely adore Armie Hammer so of course I have in and watched it.

There were some interesting bits I might add, and the Elio’s father had some great words of wisdom near the end. I just found the ending rather dissapointing and it kind of tarnished the rest of the movie for me.

Rating: 6.5 out of 10

Miss Sloane, well-acted by Jessica Chastain in the title role. Very dialogue-based. Thought it would be dull initially but I did enjoy it. 8.5 out of 10.

So he last movie i recently watched was today and it was called "Halloween." It was a scary film about the all known bad guy Michael Myers. To be honest it was more funny then scary. And the overall rating for this was a 1 in horror but a 9.5 in comedy!

The last movie I saw was Avengers Infinity War and I thought it was too long. I found myself bored with all of the five m fight s scenes and wish they had all been shorter.

I like Marvel movies, and I certainty know what to expect when I walk into the theater, but 2.5 hours was simply too much for me.

Additionally, I felt like the story didn't really support all of the characters and battles. I understand what Marvel was doing, I jyst don't think they did it well.

I saw "Book Club" on Monday and laughed myself silly. As a woman of a certain age, I noted that nearly everyone in the audience was also a woman of a certain age, so I'm not sure if younger viewers would enjoy this half as much.

I enjoyed the female characters very much. I was a bit concerned, though, that all that the "nice guys" had to do was just listen, be polite, and show their interest. That alone was enough to send the women into a tizzy. Is it really that simple for men? Is it really that complex for women? Perhaps the film could have added more development to the "quality" of the relationships themselves.

Anyway, this film had me laughing in a way that no film has in quite a long time. Two thumbs up!

Ragnarok. I don't really like the marvel movies, but I'd give it a 4/5. Best one since Iron Man in my opinion, but I have seen Infinity War yet.

I watched The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. To me, it gets a 5/10 because it felt a bit choppy compared to the book. Then again, the book is almost always better than the movie.

The last movie I saw in a theatre was Breaking Dawn part 2. 😂I don’t get to the movies much. The last movie I watched at home was the remake of Jumanji.
