    Great ,not old, but, not new scifi SOURCE CODE starring Jake Gyllenhaal - before he reinvented himself into some kind of psycho like "Nightcrawler."

    Finally watched Edge of Tomorrow yesterday. All I can say is Whoa. Great movie, really novel approach. I know the repeating day thing has been done before, but this was somehow done differently. I get the feeling that someone was playing a computer game, trying to pass a tough spot, when they got the idea for this movie. I really liked the script, the casting, CGI, dialogue was good, it wasn't just a mindless action movie. And the aliens were pretty cool too.

    And I really enjoyed Emily Blunt in this one, I haven't seen her in a similar role before. Well chosen, she nailed the role and she was pretty hot in this too.

    Vehve I thought the same re: playing video game. Very good movie. Have you ever seen The Source Code - very, very good movie - same video game style - repeating scenes and gaining information each time - came out well before Edge of Tomorrow.

    Diva, no, I sort of meant to see that when it came out, but never got around to it. Just added it to my watchlist.
     
  5. I am putting both of those on my list.

    Diva, have you seen Now You See It w/Mark Ruffalo? I had to watch it twice to "see" it.

    I didn't like "Now you see me", it felt a little flat to me. It was entertaining, but not as good as people claimed it to be.
     
  7. I like getting pulled into the rabbit hole and going deeper than most people look. It's not for everyone, though, I'm sure.
    I am still hooked on Baymax from BigHero6. [​IMG]I never go see movies a 2nd time, this might be an exception.

    Maleficent was okay... I saw the twists coming, that was fine I usually do. I just didn't like how it ended, just so open to interpretation in my opinion, and if the narrator turns out to be a character, don't you like to see the character at the end and here a little bit about how things turned out?

    The newest X-Men movie bugged me too... Exactly where did Xavier re-materialize from? And you never get to really understand the characters that were not in the other franchise films... It was a weak attempt to follow the comic books further... That said I didn't hate it.

    Edger of tomorrow was great though... I won't complain about that one :D

    Really excited about "interstellar"...

    Oh and if you haven't seen it and you like sci-fi I recommend "transcendent"... It leaves a bit open for interpretation but it worked for me.
