After watching "Prisoners" and "Arrival", Director Denis Villeneuve has proven he can make some thought provoking films.

The short film "Next Floor" by the Canadian filmmaker is another one on his impressive resume.
Not for the squeamish, the imagery is very strong on the voraciousness of the elites.

Watched Hidden Figures at the movies on Sunday. Really good flick.

It's hard to believe that segregation actually existed. I'm not old enough to have witnessed it but it's scary stuff. Awesome that these 3 women (and many others) were able to do what they did.

In any event, good flick.
This^^^^^. Really good movie.

Just saw Get Out today and it was excellent. One of the greatest and subversive horror movies in years.

Logan.

Not your typical superhero endeavor. Extremely well acted by Jackman as the tortured soul and a fitting end to the franchise.

Saw the 1992 movie "A Few Good Men" when Cineplex had a couple of screenings earlier this month. Only saw it at the theatre once when it first came out and never got around to see it again on TV or home video. Anyway, I forgot just how good the movie was including the superb acting chops of the all-star cast. Everyone starring in the movie looked so young 25 years ago and that's a good thing because great actors get to live forever because of cinema.

If you've never seen it before, Cineplex is screening it one more time tomorrow night. Catch it if you don't mind the snow outside. LOL

Before I Fall

Even though its essentially a Twilight Zone episode with a Groundhog Day story, it is surprisingly well done. Zoey Deutch is great in this, her skilful acting and natural charm show the evolution of her character as she lives the same day over and over. Though it threatens to get hoakey at times, for the most part it is remains authentically portrayed. By the end it becomes downright inspirational. Much better than I expected! 5/5.

(This Village Voice review might give you an idea whether you would like Before I Fall.)
Saw this last week and did enjoy it, but it's definitely nowhere near your score of 5/5.

Can't believe how much Zoey Deutch resembles her Mom actress Lea Thompson at that age. She even has the same beautiful long legs that her mother flaunted in the 80's flicks "Some Kind of Wonderful" and "Howard the Duck". LOL

Dug up my dvds and saw The Horse Whisperer again. Didn't realize that a young ScarJo was in that movie. Robert Redford rarely disappoints. If you like the tv series Heartland, you should love this one.

Like best King Kong movie? Sweet!

I was always impressed by the old-school one from the 30s because of just how difficult it was to achieve that at that time.
And I always had a guilty-pleasure association with the Peter Jackson version from the mid 2000s.

What put this one over the edge?
I haven't seen it but I heard the CGI is pretty heavy here.
