The disaster artist. I was so skeptical but it's a great movie. :D

I really want to see The Disaster Artist! I'm a huge fan of the Franco brothers and wanted to catch it while it's out, but I don't think that I can find the time to put aside to see it at this moment. Would you recommend it, BlueScorpion?

@jio, I'm glad I could help in some way! I try to be as objective as I can when watching and analysing films, but maybe you'd find something in the horrors I've spoken about that I didn't.

A collection of four short films that I found to be well shot and nicely executed. I thought they were engaging and I enjoyed watching it a lot. I do tend to enjoy anthology collections that box together several works in one piece.

Didn't know about this. Thoughts?

I'm still reading the book by Stephen King :)
I thought it was very intriguing and clever, playing on the different ideas that sexual activity can bring about from male and female perspectives. The themes of double identities that the movie deals with is another favourite theme of mine in cinema. Are you enjoying the book? I would definitely recommend the film if so, and Stephen King himself spoke very highly of it.

I'm put off by reading a lot of Stephen King's works myself because I found him to be very smug and unlikeable in the On Writing text he wrote as well as in several interviews I've seen. I guess if anyone was as successful as him, they'd be smug too! :lol: I would like to read and see The Green Mile, though.

After seeing The Disaster Artist, I decided to watch this, totally get why people say it's so bad that it became good :lol: I only saw some clips of it before but the whole thing is just so intriguing.

A very intriguing take on the typical supernatural horror. It's directed by British-Iranian filmmaker Babak Anvari and concerns a mother and daughter who are haunted by spirits in 1980s Tehran set to a backdrop of war. It has an approach that I don't think would ever be commissioned by a studio in a general Hollywood horror. I think it's fantastic and well worth the watch.

I'm a big fan of the Saw films; in general I think the first three are very strong and then the franchise gets a little repetitious after that, but I still enjoy watching them nonetheless. I thought that the Jigsaw spin-off was incredibly disappointing, though. I think it plays to the franchise's strengths and values the killings over substance of plot, but it takes very few risks and feels like such a thin, uneventful film. I find it an unnecessary additional to the series.

Pitch Perfect 3

Very solid potential final instalment of the franchise. The humour is still firing out of all cylinders. I don’t think I liked the music in this one as much as I did it’s predecessors. Cast are phenomenal though, I really wish Anna Camp was in More projects.

Yeah I completely get that, I just feel like it was a good way to make a few more sequels. The twist got me, however I did guess a couple of things before they happened. The death as well where very inventive and it was a good way to keep Kramer involved.

A Bollywood horror movie concerning a group of friends who spend the night in an abandoned haunted hotel which was previously an insane asylum. The plot is generic and overdone but what intrigued me about it was the fact that it was directed by a Bollywood filmmaker. Horror films directed by non American filmmakers usually have very different qualities to that of a standard Hollywood horror. Unfortunately, there wasn't much to see here; I didn't think it was an interesting film that was worthy of watching, nor was it particularly frightening in a way that set it apart from the standard horror movie.

Eh. I liked it more than the second and third instalments thanks to Lin Shaye's acting. It was a good call to make her character the central focus of the film. It's for the best that they put the franchise to bed now.

It was okay i guess, most of the nominees in Best Movie category are better than this. But i'd recommend you to watch it, Meryl did a grea job as usual.

An intelligent and sophisticated take on the world of spiritualism. It was beautifully shot and executed. I'm not the biggest fan of Kristen Stewart, but she gives a very accomplished performance in her role too.
