Ah I am so glad to hear it, I really want to see this movie - besides you can't go wrong with Beatles music (as for that muppet in the trailer, Coldplay and Fix You don't come anywhere CLOSE to most Beatle's songs!)

One of the good old good ones, The Longest Day. One of the greatest movies ever made with an all-star cast, John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Henry Fonda and many others. Also the super cool theme music by Paul Anka. They dont make movies like that anymore.

I saw The Space Between Us and loved it! Unpredictable plot, believable romance and satisfying ending. I know it bombed at the 2017 box office, but I'm a sucker for soft love stories and space.

The last movie that I saw was the new Hellboy that recently came out on DVD and BlueRay. Although it received a large amount of criticism, I was personally a fan. I enjoyed that the movie was more like the comics and did not completely humanize Hellboy. The villain was also fantastic and the CGI was amazing to watch. I was creeped out and fascinated all at the same time. I would give the move 4 out of 5. I would have given a 5 out of 5, but the ending offered a minor cliffhanger that hints at Abe Sapien and there is not likely going to be a sequel.

Joker is amazing. I just created a thread about the movie: viewtopic.php?f=103&t=122301

Heart! We will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you're lagging.
I may remember him!

Debating whether to watch 'Eat, Pray, Love' ... every review I'v heard or read in universally negative but curiosity is killing me. Can it really be as bad as the reviews?
It's not that bad. Give it a watch (I reckon the curiosity will kill you more than the film itself, lol). I saw it when it came out in theaters after having read + loved the book and liked it ok. What's surprising is that despite it being just an ok film, I find myself rewatching it every couple of years. So it has something. For one thing, it fills up the senses with beautifully shot/edited locations, food, and music; for another, Javier Bardem's genuineness is seriously charming; and, I feel like it gets the beat of Elizabeth Gilbert's awakening/journey pretty darn well. I never quite felt like Julia Roberts was Elizabeth (v. Julia Roberts) but her performance is thoughtful and sincere. As long as you can acknowledge that a film is only ever an interpretation of a book and not the book (nor ever could be), then I think it can be held fairly it its own right. And I think that's the important thing when measuring films of books.

Well, I rarely watch movies these days.

I have kids, though, so I just mostly see the stuff they watch. So, literally the last movie I probably saw was Descendants 3! Lol
