I want to go see Chappie tonight so badly.  I might just be a loser and go see it by myself.

Hope you saw it. Very enjoyable if you like that sort of thing. Clearly the same folks as District 9.
Not for kids, a bit wet/graphic, which I dn"t much like, but tolerable.

I can't wait to go, either. It looks really cool.

For the $4 I paid, I would say yes, worth a shot (and most of the people voting for it at amazon, Rotten Tomatoes, etc. seemed to like it--though the critics didn't, for filmmaking reasons). For $20, I dunno, though (as far as I can tell) there are no extras, so you don't really gain anything, content wise, from buying the DVD over a digital version.  Given the subject matter I guess I should have been prepared for mellow, slow, and repetition. Maybe I'll give it another shot, a small part at a time, in a few weeks.

Just put Police Academy on, and going to bed. Last 20 minutes of this movie drags a bit, but I'll be asleep by then...

Everything is online for free, if you really want to look around for it  :police:  But yeah, there is more on the version I watched: specifically, the rest of the documentary--another 57 minutes more material... though YMMV as to whether you want the longer version...

I haven't gotten to see it yet.  I don't want to be the loser sitting in the theater alone. 

It is the same director from District 9, the voice of the robot is the guy in the other two of his movies, and I am really looking forward to seeing Ninja and Yolandi in a movie.

I'm watching the 2006 remake of Poseidon.  Why did the captain try to turn the boat when he saw the rogue wave coming?  Did he think he could avoid it?

It can make all the difference the angle at which the sea attacks the ship.

LOL this was from a recommendation my sister gave me, she loves both. I saw Babel when it came out and didn't like it, I know what the movie was trying to do but ultimately it just wasn't very interesting.

Never saw Crash, another movie that didn't interest me.

I remember watching both in the theater.  I would keep checking my phone to see what time it was as a distraction of how blah both movies are.  I'm pretty sure I have Babel on DVD in my house that I got at Wal-mart for $5 and it's still unopened.

I like Terrance Howard and Don Cheadle.
True, Crash did try hard, but then I am a movie lover, not a film fan. For example I laughed out loud and enjoyed Pain & Gain. Wouldn't see it again, but...... 8)

I saw Cinderella at the theater yesterday. It was the best version I have seen. I recommend it. I remember being impressed with Ella Cinders starring Coleen Moore (I like her), but it was so long ago that I cannot do a comparison (due to memory along with the fact that it was a silent movie). Last night I also watched Oz the Great and Powerful on DVD which I also thought was OK, but Cinderella is definitely better.

I am suffering through God Is Not Dead. 30 minutes left, and it's gonna be a struggle to finish this one. How these evangelicals think they are glorifying God by making such artistically anemic garbage is beyond baffling. And I'm always pulling for them, truly. I sincerely want these movies to be good, but they are usually awful. And this is one of their worst efforts. Ughhh.

Gebre, they are not marketing such for you but rather opening dialogue with each other. Though it is a terrible movie I could have used it 50 years ago and figure there may be some other that it may help currently. "Religious" movies are either bad but some are worse, and mostly this is one of those.

Don't know this one, but the TCM Silent Movie series is enjoyable. The absence of the censors and the lack of precedence & redundancy gives the viewer new storylines; it wasn't the same old plots rehashed.

I want to go see Chappie tonight so badly.  I might just be a loser and go see it by myself.

Hope you saw it. Very enjoyable if you like that sort of thing. Clearly the same folks as District 9.
Not for kids, a bit wet/graphic, which I didn't much like, but tolerable.

I can't wait to go, either. It looks really cool.

I haven't gotten to see it yet.  I don't want to be the loser sitting in the theater alone. 

It is the same director from District 9, the voice of the robot is the guy in the other two of his movies, and I am really looking forward to seeing Ninja and Yolandi in a movie.


I loved it.  It was all I had ever hoped a Die Antwoord movie would be.  It was like District 9 meets Umsini Wam.  Actually, it was District 9 meets Umsini Wam, but you get what I'm saying.  All it lacked was a Jack Parow cameo.  Probably the Zef'est movie ever.

I am suffering through God Is Not Dead. 30 minutes left, and it's gonna be a struggle to finish this one. How these evangelicals think they are glorifying God by making such artistically anemic garbage is beyond baffling. And I'm always pulling for them, truly. I sincerely want these movies to be good, but they are usually awful. And this is one of their worst efforts. Ughhh.

Fantastic film. My neighbor complained as I was enjoying myself too much.

Do You Believe? in no way lives up to the brilliance of God's Not Dead.

Ignorance is not a lack, but a passion.

"Chernobyl Diaries." Yipes, it's pretty scary.

Another recommendation for Cinderella here. I cried like a baby throughout most of it, it was so lovely. Completely without irony and guile, it was how they used to make movies in the golden era of Hollywood. So pretty to look at, and I really, genuinely cared about the characters.

Pixar's Cars for the billionth time. My son had surgery so i guess he can watch whatever he wants.  I have come to really like this movie myself.

"Chappie." Very violent. Not what I expected, but moving.

Did you see Elysium or District 9?

Because you put Niel Blomkamp, Shalto Copley, and Ninja in a movie, there will be violence!!!
