Don't have time to watch shit that I don't think I'll enjoy.

Yea I realized that after I made my comment.. I was like, wait, I usually only watch recommended, praised movies too... Trying to avoid wasting my time with experiments.

Agreed.

So who's going to go see Boyhood ?

I've been waiting for this film for a long time. It's not at my local theater yet, may have to go to Phoenix to see it. But I can't wait.

BTW, it has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes (over 100 reviews).

I am interested in this although I am not big on tear-jerk type movies and this gives me the vibe that it is on a mission to make you tear up.

I was criticized recently for the same thing and gave pretty much the same answer as you guys. I don't just randomly select movies to watch. There are so many good movies out there as a long as you do a bit of research you should almost never have to watch a bad one.

I like to mix in random movies from Netflix. I like to mix it up sometimes because it's nice to be able to go in without expectations sometimes. Also, there is something kind of fun about watching a bad movie lol. You get to pick it apart without disappointment and it makes you appreciate good film a little bit more.

I do watch the occasional bad movie when my interest in the premise overrules everything else(Transcendence, V/H/S, Would You Rather, etc.), but I usually regret it. I derive no joy from bad movies lol.

I am a fan of bad movies from the 80s, I can watch just about any of them. I really like 80s ninja flicks, Ninja 3 The Domination is my shit (see the avy)...my childhood is the link here obviously

recently made bad movies I can't really do...

I've been waiting for it too. Im a huge Linklater fan and can only imagine what he did with the concept. Plus, he always gets great performances from Hawke. Even in smaller flicks like Tape and particularly in free-form ones like The Before Trilogy. I can't wait to watch it .

9.7/10

her work is really quite nice, besides the obvious political side of it.

Jackie Brown - 7/10

Overall a good movie, but felt a bit too long. Also, a bit too predictable. Still, def worth the time.

I spit on your grave. (First one of the newer version)

7/10. Not bad. Hot chick and crazy rednecks getting wrecked after they all took turns raping her. Good revenge flick.

The Intouchables


God I love this movie. Everything about it. The two leads have such great chemistry together, it just pops off the screen. I feel like I was smiling most of the way through, and it made me chuckle and laugh on several occasions, so much more than straight-up comedies like A Million Ways To Die In The West, or Neighbors.

The soundtrack is badass, with one of my favorite pieces of music in recent years. One of the best buddy movies ever imo.

10/10
