RED. Retired, Extremely Dangerous.

I think you need to be a bit old, and have a family, to really enjoy this film.

Run Lola Run.



This was a good movie, fast paced while nuanced. Worth the 90 minute investment.

I watched it On Demand earlier this year and enjoyed it. That song they play throughout the movie got stuck in my head.

Sky Line

Sky Line is a documentary on the attempt to build a Space Elevator.

Very good movie.

Just watched the latest Star Wars film.

I really enjoyed it.
4 out of 5.
Blows the prequels out of the water.
Stays true to the original theme.

There was a tad too much in your face action for my liking, but loved the open ending.

However, my youngest son (5yo) slept through it, so it might not be to everyone's tastes .

Remake of Fritz Lang's classic "M":



While not horrible, it leaves you wondering what was the point of the remake? Watch the first one, it's far superior.

Anyone see The Martian?

I have to consider it one of the best movies of 2015. I didn't see it until I rented it on Amazon today.

Wow!

Totally believable and scientifically plausible.

Matt Damon did an outstanding job as the stranded astronaut on Mars. And the supporting cast did a good job of supplying the scientific context on how to rescue him.

A great flick in all.
