I saw it last weekend....the last five minutes of that film...some seriously strong stuff was being smoked in the writing room that day...

It was very uncomfortable to watch. :wide-eyed:

It's not a film to watch with the parents

Doctor Strange is coming to the UK even earlier on October 25th, three days earlier and 9 days in all before it arrives in the US on November 4th.

I'm a huge fan of the MCU and Benedict Cumberbatch is a great actor so I'm really excited for the film. :awesome:

They keep playing a trailer for that film at the cinema. Looks utterly forgettable and boring.
The CGI is cool though.

That's interesting. It's one of the rare Marvel movies that actually really does seem interesting. Instead of the classic adventures of superheroes number 1000.

Even the mythos-turned-sci-fi Thor series?

Doctor Strange seems really cringey to me, with the bullshity metaphysical expositions featured in the trailers.

I don't like Thor. I never actually liked ancient gods and all that shit. But I do admit that I've never actually seen any of the Thor movies. Never seemed that interesting.

The Thor films are some of the better MCU flicks. They have better humour imo. And one of them had a climax that almost entirely took place in Greenwich Old Royal College (a BEAUTIFUL spot), so that's a bonus point.

Doctor Strange looks like the most refreshing Marvel movie in quite a while to me, what is all this talk about it looking boring? :blargh: I don't know if any of you is familiar with the comics, but if it is as trippy and strange as its source material, it's going to be amazing. Doctor Strange is without a doubt the least basic and conventional of the heroes portrayed in the MCU so far. Am I the only one appreciating the stellar visual representation of magic in this movie? It's not the usual light show every other movie about magic throws at us. On top of that the trailer music is A+ and it has Benedict Cumberbatch and Mads Mikkelsen!

Did not expect you to like them. Aside from some nice visuals every now and then, they're my least favorite movies of the MCU. When people start comparing DC and Marvel movies, I usually use them as an example of MCU movies that were worse than BvS and Suicide Squad and still got better critic scores. :lol:

I have yet to see a recent superhero flick worse than Suicide Squad. The Thor films were competent, solid 7/10 films to me. Suicide Squad was a mess on every level and had so many people messing with the script and editing that none of it worked together anymore.

Suicide Squad is worse even than Guardians of the Galaxy. That's quite an achievement.

I'm on team it-wasn't-as-bad-as-the-reviews-say with Suicide Squad. :shrug: Sure it had plenty of flaws and the concept could have been used for much more interesting story, but I feel like it was mainly a victim of its own hype and potential. Despite messy directing and a basic plot it was fun to watch, had great use of music and some really great performances on behalf of the cast. I've seen movies get away with less than that. Would rate it a 6, maybe 7 if I count in the guilty pleasure-factor. :lol:

Noooooo, Guardians of The Galaxy is one of those movies where I actually agree with the reviews. :blargh:

After a really disappointing spring/summer for films, this week there have been four films released that I really really want to see;

Kubo and The Two Strings which is a stop motion animation that looks so beautifully made

Hell and High Ŵater which is a really slick looking modern western

Don't Breathe which is a horror, generally a genre which bores me, but this one has apparently completely steered away from the paranormal and that really interests me

Captain Fantastic which is completely non-superhero related

Just need to wrangle up some people to go with Who wants to come watch a film with me and then have me pick apart minute details you hadnt even realised afterwards?

I'm in, most people I watch movies with never fail to disappoint me with their complete lack of interest in discussing it afterwards. :shake:

I really like discussing the movies. But one thing that I hate is nitpicking of absolutely small details and shit. I don't care if the CGI was a bit wonky at some point or if the actor had a wrong facial expression. Or even the fact that whatever happened is outside of the realms of being possible. I just want to murder people who do that.

Was the complete storyline full of plot holes? Was the camera shaking throughout the movie? Was the actor totally unconvincing? Sure. Talk about that. Just don't nitpick.

I went to see Kubo and The Two Strings in the cinema and it was amazing. Spellbinding characters, poignant and rich narrative and stunning animation! I strongly recommend seeing the film :keke:

I saw Nerve at the cinema last night and it was actually pretty decent. Dumb, completely removed from reality and fell apart at the end, but a lot of fun to watch. Emma Roberts and Dave Franco both did very well in their respective roles and that underwear scene (plot-relevant, not for pure fanservice reasons) was much, much appreciated.

Today we're going to see the Absolutely Fabulous film! And possibly Final Cut. If we're in the mood for another movie.
EDIT: Turns out Final Cut isn't the international title. The Last Showing is. A horror film about filmmaking set in a cinema.

I find the trailer fascinating and I very much want to see the movie. It already had a limited theatrical release but the DVD comes out on the 26th. It definitely seems like an interesting movie.

I think that I don't need to mention the fact that I want to see Alex Lawther naked.
