Hmm. I did just watch The Cabin In The Woods. Fun sci-fi/horror movie. I binge watched my way through Marco Polo on Netflix; that show was badass. The remake of Judge Dredd (just titled Dredd) was awesome.

Hm. Good question. OH! I watched the American remake of Old Boy. Twisted movie but well acted and Elizabeth Olsen is so hot she could eat bread and shit out toast.

Hnggg I love Elizabeth Olsen.

 

For recommendations, do check out John Wick! Really interesting world-building, Keanu's use of the Central Axis Relock stance, as well as realistic engagements (correct ammo count, fighting while having to reload) make it a really fun watch.

I plan on watching John Wick as soon as I get back from this work trip.

 

As for my suggestion, though it's a bit on the extreme side of movie commercialism, see Gone Girl.  I was floored.  I've never been a huge Affleck fan, but he proved himself in this one.  I'm now confident in his Bruce Wayne/Batman portrayal.  I mean, it was directed by David Fincher, so I don't know why my expectations would have been anything but high.

If you're not convinced of him as a gritty Bruce Wayne/Batman, watch Argo. That really sold me on him as an actor.

 

Also, Gone Girl was fantastic. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross were perfect for the OST, as well.

Argo is banned in my house.

I have John Wick on my list. I love Keanu Reeves. He's done some kick ass movies.

Must look out for John Wick sounds a really good movie! Thanks for the heads up guys I will look out for it!

I'm looking forward to the new bond film Spectre and the new mission impossible films ....we were on holiday in Marakesh in October and missed Daniel Craig and Tom Cruise by a week or two, they had been filming in the Atlas mountains :(

I liked Keanu in the 49 Ronin did anyone else see it ?

No but I really want to! Retal places don't exist anymore and it isn't on Netflix. :(

Other than the abundance of inaccuracies, the almost complete omission of the Canadian involvement borders on the offensive. Even the American agents involved in the incident called it out for that. Heaven forbid an American movie would acknowledge someone else for helping save the day.

I don't mean to generalize, but being the most outwardly patriotic country in the world, you would think they (as in people that make these types of movies or statements) would understand the importance of such things.

It has nothing to do with censorship, and everything to do with Netflix. It is different regionally, and Netflix just hasn't made it available so far. The netflix feed for Canada has far less titles than say, the US.

I'd forgotten that I'd read about the issues with the movie, I'd kind of locked on that I enjoyed Affleck's performance and forgot everything else. Totally understand though, reminds me of the discussion right now surrounding American Sniper.

Walrus, you're giving way too much credit to Hollywood! I'm confident those folks only have an understanding of the importance of money, not anything logical or realistic like historic accuracy or patriotism. Hollywood is no stranger to taking "artistic" liberties. We may be in the minority, but some of us don't believe everything we see in the movies :)
Except Batman, that's 100% true and accurate. Oh, and the Die Hard movies too (really any Bruce Willis movie). And James Bond. All coincidently solid EDCers. Everything else Hollywood totally fake.

This is true. I take it as a slight due to my patriotism, but movies that are supposed to portray an event in general and are so poorly researched and executed are just a huge bummer for me. If it's something I'm familiar with I jist can't do it.

I agree with Batman.

But then what am I to complain about?

These are not new movies, but I always recommend Bogart movies. I have his entire filmography. Be it early movies or later ones, his films are unrivaled.

Hah! There's always something to complain about...the weather, politics (at least in the US), women...

I dig old movies too. Steve McQueen and Paul Newman especially. There's something a bit more honest about the old movies that many new ones lack. Maybe we need an "old movies" thread...

You know how I feel about horror movies, Walrus.  Cabin in the Woods is a FANTASTIC modern day horror film.  It blends an insanely well written script (for the genre) with humor, good acting, awesome directing and plenty of scares.  It's one of the few movies I recommend to anyone who wants to be a casual "scary" movie fan.  

 

I don't want to hijack James' thread with horror talk, but for anyone who's a fan of the 1982 Tobe Hooper directed Poltergeist (one of my faves), there's a reboot to be released this summer that actually looks VERY good.  While I've mostly lost faith in the genre, a few gems still see the light of day.  I think this will be one, despite being rated PG13.  Here's the trailer that was released earlier this week for any of you interested.
