Just saw Mission Impossible Dead something, Tom Cruise still looks 30 yrs old, amazing, the MI oomph is stale tho but whatever, it’s like watching rocky V but higher budget

Stumbled on Private Parts. What an underrated movie and a great acting job by Howard Stern. Granted he's playing himself but him and Eminem (8 Mile) has to be of your great one-offs from an actor that's not really an actor.

Watched LA Confidential for the first time, what a good film.

Just saw Dune 2. One of the best films I’ve ever seen in my life. I haven’t read the books, but the story was so coherent and the rather slow Part 1 successfully lays the groundwork for an explosive part 2.

For a 3 hour film, the pacing was phenomenal. Even for oppy, which was a great film, I thought the pacing could have been better in several parts. Dune 2 was perfection.

10/10

Zone of interest was really good. I have been a huge fan of Glazer for years. This movie is all about the subtleties.

Loved it. My only regret was not waiting to see it in IMAX. The movie is visually stunning and I can only imagine how much better it looks in its original format.

Went out to see Challengers in Dolby after the Lakers game. What a movie! It might have too much eroticism for some, but the score is amazing. The pacing is great, and the characters are also very good. Half of the viewers were dancing in their seats, the score was really incredible. The most enjoyable film of the year by far.

Thanks, I have those on my IPTV. I'll watch them sometime today to see if they're of my liking.

EDIT; I watched both and enjoyed both. Thanks.

Has anyone seen the new movie CIVIL WAR? Does it indicate what will life in America be like if Trump is elected president? Does is have political implications?

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have another Bad Boy movie Ride Or Die. Lawrence has gained a lot of weight. Debuts next month.

Watched Beasts of the Southern Wild for the first time.

Man. The film leaves me speechless. It's gonna stick with me for a while.

I really loved Furiosa. I'm a sucker for George Miller's films, but didn't expect to like this one as much as I did.

Civil War was a "is this real?" Wearing PRESS is supposed to mean don't target the wearer because they're no threat. It's my understanding war journalists actually follow behind troops. I dub the movie interesting.

I saw an early release of Bad Boys Ride or Die last night. I thought it was a great movie, good addition to the franchise, and I liked the plot they came up with. Glad they found a way to keep Joe Pantoliano in the story.

It's on my IPTV but it's cam. The quality of the picture and sound isn't very good. I'll wait until they clear up before watching it. It usually takes about 2 weeks.

Edit: I watched Bad Boys: Ride or Die this morning. It's a good movie. Action start to finish. Tasha Smith replaced Theresa Randle. I saw a video of Theresa sitting in a walker. It's hard to tell if she's well or not. LINK

It's apparently a bomb but I want to see it soon. Hope you're right. Any recommendations from anyone who has seen it about what kind of theater is best (including everyday normal theater)?

I loved Dune 2, and saw IMAX version but did not think IMAX specifically was required, normal theater would have been fine.
