Ya... "The Green mile". Brilliant movie! Best supporting actor had to be Stuart Little as Mr. Jingles.....

An undeniably great movie ^^^

Infinitely better thank Black Panther which I watched two days back

Gawsh, I cannot agree more, Black Panther has to be the biggest load of over hyped, over budget, over the moon load of tripe i've ever seen...

I honestly don’t even know how Black Panther qualified to be called a “movie”, that is how bad it is. Even the last Steven Seagal release was better.

Last movie I watched was Rampage starring Dwayne the Rock. Except for some cool CGI in places it was totally uninspiring. Not nearly as bad as Black Panther though.

Been watching The Lord of the Rings again.
Didn't realise they were the extended versions so 4.5 hours was a bit long, and every so often I got a "I have no memory..." vibe and some ants in the pants.

It has aged very well.

Also watched The Usual Suspects again, my better 3rd had never seen it. Still one of the best movies for me, although the latest fiddling with the boys allegations against Spacey does colour the appreciation of an outstanding performance.
This does raise the question if a crime diminishes prior art.

My daughter is most probably the Biggest Tolken fan, I know of...

From special collector books, to special collector sculptures of the characters...and and and.

We had to sit through a movie marathon last year with her in Germany, watching the entire extended series...

Plus all the behind the scenes of the making of the movie...

Needless to say....I came back to SA a complete converted 🤣🤣🤣

My wife, son and I went to go and see the Antman and the Wasp.
The storyline was okay and the CGI was good but man, the acting was flat and uninspiring. The jokes were also weak and not even Michael Pena could save it.
A 4 out of 10 movie. At least they managed to tie it in to Infinity War.
So far the second weakest recent Marvel offering after Black Panther.

Thor: Ragnarok

The 1st Thor movie was uninteresting and mediocre at best, and it's sequel equally uninspiring.  Thor Raganarok is Marvel's latest attempt to elevate the franchise to new heights.   First and foremost, it must be said.... as a visual showcase, Ragnarok "looks" good.  While hardly "original"  it does have a distinct look to it, much in the same vein as "300" did.  But 300 was barely a movie, but a showcase of slo-mo fight scenes, kinda like that 1 memorable "matrix" scene, except dragged-out into a full-length movie. 
A-hem!, Pagan... please stick to the Thor movie!    >:(   
Apologies.   :angel:

Strangely enough, for a 3rd movie in a lacklustre trilogy, Ragnarok doesn't take itself too seriously,  but I mean that in a "good" way.  It has a surprisingly good sense of humour nogal.  The CGI is among the best in the industry imo.  The story is ridiculous but I must admit I was mildly entertained by the humour and the visual spectacle that is Ragnarok.   This was not a bad movie.  It wasn't a good 1 either, but I have to be fair and give credit when due, for Marvel have worked some special magic here in bringing us something truly "not as crap" as their other offerings.

I LOVED Ragnarok.  From the start they said they're going to make it a comedy, and they did :P

Dark River - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5700176/ - depressing. I'm not into movies about abused children "finding themselves" as adults. A good, thought inspiring saga, but not my scene at all.

The Rider - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6217608/ - really enjoyable horsey / rodeo cowboy rider type movie about a young man who tries to create a life after rodeo. The director used untrained actors, starring as themselves, to make the film. Whole family enjoyed it.

Thor 1  7.5/10 :2thumbs:
Thor 2   5.5/10
Thor 3     3/10  :cr@p:

Just could not stand watching some serious actors forced to be funny . Guardians of the Galaxy 1&2 is funny.  Some of the sets in Thor Ragnarok looked like they came from Star Trek TV Series from the 80's.

:point: That makes about as much sense as "We promised you utter shyte, and boy, did we deliver, in spades! We really do not deserve to be criticised about this one!"  :ROFLMAO:
