Finally saw Blade Runner 2049, it's out now on amazon streaming (and probably some other places). It was very good and a great sequel to the original. A little too long, but the atmosphere was perfect. Surprised Harrison Ford doesn't even appear until over an hour and 40 minutes into the film though, I almost though he was going to barely be in it but the last few scenes at first.

Whose idea was it to make some of these movies pushing 3 hours? I can't imagine how people sat through the theaters when they originally came out.
I'm guessing you didn't like them that much if they dragged?.... did you watch them in normal speed?
I haven't seen the latest one, not as interested as I used to be, I'll catch it when it comes on sky.

I just watched the Star Wars Holiday Special


Bea Arthur was the only good part of the whole thing...

I went to see The Star in theaters for a second time today. It's a special movie to see during the Christmas season because its story is important. Plus, the team behind it assembled a solid all-star cast to voice its characters.

I'm thinking of seeing that maybe. I'm not much into Christmas movies but that particuler one has peaked my interest.

Seeing Chewy's Dad use VR to view some model singer or whatever she was, was the most bizarre thing in the special. VR...in the year 1978....

If the scene weren't so uncomfortable, I probably would have considered it.

She's just standing around singing in a kaleidoscope dimension, Itchy!


What I can say is that it was pretty obvious that Carrie Fisher was high during recording. Especially during her song at the end. I don't blame her, though.

Mark was still recovering from him accident in that, some heavy make-up.

I watched 'Ghost in a Shell' last night, I found it to be okay as I wasn't expecting it to be any good.

Just Saw The Last Jedi. I loved it thought it was much better than Force Awakens. Loved how Luke was done and the cameo of an old friend was awesome

I just watched the Greatest Showman with my mom and my brother's friend.

It was like...seven movies about PT Barnum's life packaged tightly into one. 25% story and 75% music, which I have mixed feelings on.

Land Before Time first time I see it in widescreen form the recent Blu-Ray release with its first widescreen release, I always thought this movie was only made in fullscreen. Amazing movie still so many years later.

Dinosaur 2000 , borrows a lot from Land Before Time but it's still good.

I'll be mostly watching Dinosaur films I've never seen this year to hype me up to Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom.

I'll start by watching ALL the Land Before Time movies

I watched "You've got mail" with Tom Hanks from 1998. Man, this movie is some real outdated social media. Imagine e-mailing someone to talk with AOL in 1998?

Watched half of the first Mortal Kombat movie the other night before I fell asleep. (No - it wasn't the movie, it was just another long day.)

Watched Doctor Strange for the 2nd time. I love the effects in this movie. Cumberbatch is still awesome as Dr Strange

Watched that recently, it's a great movie for what it is, a cheesy adaption of a fighting game from 1995.

The old Mortal Kombat movies are so dated it's embarrassing to watch it nowadays imo.

You should try watching the Mortal Kombat Legacy series. The first season is the best I feel.

I just used my MoviePass to see it yesterday. So good. I almost cried when Imelda started singing at the Eduardo De La Cruz show near the end. Made me want to talk to my grandmother more about her time growing up in Mexico
