Yep, I like Event Horizon. I didn't think anybody else did.


I like weird movies. Especially sci fi ones. Also, Sam Neill. Do we need anymore reasons?

Also, another favourite of mine is the '74 version of Murder on the Orient Express. Apparently it was the only rendition of any of her books that she ever approved of. Also, look at the cast!!

Haven't seem Murder on the Orient Express. But if you like weird movies, let's include A Clockwork Orange

A classic. Disturbing to the max. One of the few movies based on a book I feel truly captured the appropriate depravity.

Murder on the Orient Express stars Albert Finney, Michael Hall, Vanessa Redgrave, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery and more.

So then we'd include any Stanley Kubrick movies. Including the Shining. So, then we'd include every Jack Nicholson movie (almost).

Yes. Yes. Yes.

It's on my list!

 

I plan to watch Birdman this weekend, sometime before the Oscars Sunday night.  I'll return with a full review.   :D

I watched Ray for the first time the other day. I know, behind the times, but what a stunning representation of Ray Charles. I remember Jamie Foxx winning all those awards, but now I see why. Amazing. He performed his own music as well!!

Here's two movies that I just saw and recommend. Both are biographical (at least based on true stories/real people) with a similar climatic style. Both sport related.

Moneyball - about a baseball GM who redefined how rosters are picked and manged, using a statistics style system. Interesting story, good acting.

The Fighter - about boxer Mickey Ward and his brother Dick Eklund. Their rise/fall/rise in pro ranks. Also good story, good acting.

While we're talking about fighting, The Warrior (2011) is FANTASTIC.

If you are interested in a good psychological thriller, Stonehearst Asylum is awesome. It's about an asylum set in 1899. I saw it on Netflix, but I'm sure you could rent it as well.

I love Netflix.  I have Stonehurst Asylum on my watch list. I have yet to watch it, but am looking forward to it!  I loved Beckinsdale in Van Helsing

I really wanted to enjoy a post Oscars film frenzy this weekend, but my wife reminded me earlier today that beginning tomorrow, we'll be immersed in a season 3 House of Cards-a-thon.
