I've seen a pitiful amount.

From immediate reflection:

Spotlight
Birdman
12 Years a Slave
Argo (Albeit a bit too long ago to judge properly)
No Country For Old Men
The Return of the King
A Beautiful Mind
Braveheart
Forrest Gump (Too long ago to judge properly)
Schindler's List
Rocky
Lawrence of Arabia
Ben-Hur

I also technically saw Titanic and The Godfather, but those were TV edits. Can't really count them in that regard.

Sorcerer Supreme NamelessI sympathize with Gavin Hood as I quite liked Tsotsi, a distinctly non-mayo movie. South African mayo tends to have some zing and tang to it. I feel like he was chewed up by a particularly shit period in Hollywood

I feel like I could say the same for Mangold, as his early films like Heavy and Copland are pretty great, and he can occasionally churn out a 3:10 To Yuma or the last Wolverine film that reasserts his skill. ?But, yes, that involves stepping over such piles like Walk The Line, Identity and Knight And Day to get there. ?Hollywood is a frequent abuser of otherwise talented indies. ?But I acknowledge that Mangold does still have talent.

Have you seen Eye in the Sky by Hood? That looked interesting

I found it to be an effective war thriller. Drone warfare is hardly looked at in the modern war genre, so it's refreshing to see it tackled even as it generally follows the path one might expect. Helen Mirren and Alan Rickman in particular are great.

I have A Hard Days Night and I blind bought The Seventh Seal, which I still need to see. I'm trying to rent them so I can see them without having to fork over $25 or more.

I've been frequenting The Ecstasy of Gold by Ennio Morricone recently. Sadly, I have yet to watch the Dollars trilogy. Might try to catch Yojimbo first.

This trailer wasn't as good as the first trailer, and I can't say I'm not disappointed by the tonal departure form the more subdued, dramatically weighty approach the first trailer hinted at. That said, the Neo-Western feel the film seems to have still helps it stand apart from its likely competition, making this possibly the most interesting comic book film to come out in the last two years.

Title sounds a bit like a fan film, but it'll be easy to overlook if the final product is enjoyable while not copy-pasting Empire (this coming from someone who enjoyed The Force Awakens).

This trailer has probably made me more optimistic for this movie than I've felt for any superhero movie after 2014.

I too remain somewhat leery of the Han Solo movie's existence, but the casting choice is solid.

I feel ashamed that Green Room and Zootopia are the only movies I've seen on the list.

Janson JinnistanIt is such bullshit to play this off as some kind of media hit job on Trump. ?Stop that.

Is this a claim from Hannity or someone else?

Anyone have any information on whether the 90 minute version will get a theatrical release?
Sep 11, 2016 5:57 AM
Still haven't found it anywhere on DVD or streaming services/10

I would like to see it, though.

MKSIf you're going to be offensive, be funny. This isn't funny.

In fact, I'm mostly offended by how unfunny it is.

Entirely, even.

^This.

The Hacksaw Ridge trailer was admittedly formulaic, but doesn't look too bad. I've generally like the films I've seen from Mel Gibson, so I'll consider seeing it.

Didn't care much for that American Honey trailer.
