Spotlight. One of the rare films with such an amazing cast it's unbelievable.

Mark Ruffalo has always been a rom -com type guy in my book but he nailed this one really well. Michael Keaton & Rachel McAdams both played their part. Liev Schreiber had a very small role and it was exciting to see John Slattery in films after the TV sitcom. Along with Stanley Tucci, the movie was just done super well.

Script was solid with great pacing, nothing was too boring or dragged on for too long. Based on a true story back in 1980s ish.
Highly recommended 9.5/10

Pretty much exactly what I feel - watched Rocky 1 a few days before watching Creed

Star wars force awakens,

Im on the fence for this, i liked it but not as much as i had hoped. As a movie made to reboot/set up the saga again i woulf give it a 8/10. Well made. But personally as a star wars movie on its own, i would give it a 6.5/10. Just didnt have the wow factor or anything new really. Lots of nostalgia which was great. But my gf never saw star wars so it was a bit difficult for her to follow because if you go into the movie without knowing the other ones then theres a lot of unexplained questions with no answers

Legend 5.5-6/10 Tom Hardy did great, but the story was a bit all over the place, and seemed like the writers didn't know where or how to take it to the ending... which is weird since it's about 2 real life london gangsters (Kray twins), also the story wasn't as interesting as what really happened, which is also odd -_-

exactly what I thought. i mean acting wise, I can see how and why Tom picked the film as it's a challenge to play a twin with very unique accents. I thought it would be such a huge gangster movie with guns and shit and it turns out to be a huge dud. I even wiki the two dudes and it was just meh to say the least.

Are you guys going into movies with high expectations?

I honestly watch Tarantino movies (and movies in general) with neutral to no expectations, so I don't get disappointed

But I really thought Hateful Eight was pretty good and enjoyable. I don't see how it could be bad to get 0/10

The worst movies I've seen is Hollowman and Superbad, and those IMO are 1/10

Straight Outta Compton 9/10 - Nostalgia points are off the charts. I felt they missed a bunch of stuff and it felt rushed but in order to capture the whole story the movie would have been 5+ hours long. All in all it was a great movie even for someone not knowing the story.

Spoiler!

Revenant 8/10

Had my full attention for 2.5 hours, what a great movie.

As usual I have to bring up the things that took me out of the movie's world, and as usual it's cartoonish CGI effects. The bear wasn't bad during the up close scenes, but the elk were really lame, and the buffalo were downright silly looking. They looked like they were running at a different speed than they were actually moving across the screen. Also the CGI blood, as always, is bad. Will movies ever get this right?

Aside from that, it was captivating. I really love the faux 'one shot' action scenes. I think Tom Hardy will win an oscar for best supporting actor, and Leo will probably get snubbed again because he's Leo

Initiation Love. 9/10 came out in May 2015.

Love story in 1980s of a jap girl and a guy who they met in small town. Guy leaves to Tokyo and relationship falls apart.

The promotional poster is interesting, it says the last 5 minutes will blow your mind (at least in the chinese posters).

Indeed the ending is like a WTF, wasn't like 6th sense but pretty worthy of a watch, highly recommended by two critics I follow and they didn't disappoint. just watch it without researching so you don't have any expectations.

make sure you watch it with subtitles.
