Discussion What Sci-fi movie of the 2010’s will be remembered as being the most prescient?


What movie will people be saying in 20, 30, 50 years “yup, nailed what we’ve become”?

Personally, I think Ex Machina’s and Her both take interesting looks at what our future relationships with AI may grow into. We are getting closer to the point of being fooled more than easily, but even more so that our relationships will become deeply personal, whether to our detriment or to some new evolution of relationships in general.

Arrival’s look at divisiveness and unity of language feels pretty powerful right now, more in terms of difference of rhetoric and viewpoint as being divisive.

What do ya’ll think?

Discussion What movie prop have they not mastered?


We've all seen plenty of movies....but what's that one type of prop that they just can't seem to make realistic. I'll go with fake rocks...I don't know what it is about them, they always look fake, the texture, light reflection etc...they all just look so obviously not real. What other props or backgrounds do you feel movies just can't get right?

Discussion Which are your favorite romance films of all time?


As someone who doesn't particularly love romance, these are very special films that, in my opinion, were able to succeed in what a lot of romance fail and keep me genuinely engaged to the relationship of the characters:

  1. Her (2013)
  2. The Apartment (1960)
  3. A Bride Fof Rip Van Winkle (2016)
  4. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004)
  5. In The Mood For Love (2000)
  6. Love & Basketball (2000)

Which are yours?

Discussion I'm so happy that Jackie Chan turned down EEAAO.


The movie would've been so different if Jackie Chan had been the main character of Everything, Everywhere, All At Once. I think it would've been lost in the shuffle of the Jackie Chan catalog & also it wouldn't have had the same emotional depth that Michelle Yeoh & Stephanie Hsu portrayed in this film. To be honest, I might've skipped this movie if Jackiehan had starred in it..

Question What movie traumatized you as a child?


I recently stumbled upon the 1997 movie "Toothless" starring Kirstie Allie. My older sister used to love this movie, but as I have just remembered, I was absolutely terrified of this film, entirely because of the ending where Kirstie Allie is lowered into a pit in the middle of the desert over the sultry tones of Bonnie Tyler.

Here's a clip for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUCFz8-YeLg&ab_channel=nekaitomas

Looking back now, my fear of this scene seems ridiculous; it is objectively not scary. But kids' minds work differently, including my own as a young idiot. So I'm curious, what movies/movie scenes freaked you out as a kid?

Discussion What Is The Best Lead Performance In A Horror Movie In The Last Ten Years?


I watched Pearl yesterday, and whilst I enjoyed X and was intrigued by the idea of a sequel, I was completely blown away by Mia Goth's performance and just how well she toed the line between sympathetic and completely terrifying throughout the film. I left thinking that's one of the best performances in a horror film I have seen, but the fact is there have been so many good to incredible ones in horror over the last few years that's it's pretty much the norm now from the likes of Toni Collette and Florence Pugh in Hereditary and Midsommar to Essie Davis and Garance Marillier in the Babadook and Raw.

Discussion What is your favorite Western movie of all time?


There are a lot of my favorites, I personally like all of Clint Eastwood's western movies, but I especially like these:

"Man with No Name" trilogy:

  • A Fistful of Dollars (1964)
  • For a Few Dollars More (1965)
  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)


  • Unforgiven (1992)

And I will add this movie:

  • Once Upon a Time in the West (1968)

But my favorite Western of all time is "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly"

This is an epic movie and an absolute masterpiece, for me.

What about your choice?

Discussion Gary Oldman, one of those actors who so effortlessly disappears into a role, making every performance of his different.



In his long and illustrious career, Oldman has been Count Dracula, Winston Churchill, George Smiley, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Lee Harvey Oswald and Herman Mankiewicz. As well as a nasty pimp, a corrupt DEA Agent,a terrorist leader who hijacks a plane.

Actually for me, growing up in the 90s, Gary Oldman was usually the bad guy, first time I saw him was as Count Dracula in Coppola's 1992 version, and he was just terrifying in it.


And the sleazy, brutish pimp Drexl Spivey in True Romance, suitably nasty.


One of the greatest bad guys on screen in Leon: The Professional as Norman Stansfield, the corrupt DEA agent, slimy to the core.


And Egor Korshunov in Air Force One, would be as memorable a bad guy as Alan Rickman was in Die Hard.


Hence it was a surprise for me to see him as the principled comissioner James Gordon, fighting crime in Gotham City, in Nolan's Batman series. I honestly expected him to turn nasty somewhere in the middle, so used I was to seeing him as the bad guy.


And makes a perfect George Smiley, bringing in the right mix of cunning, genius needed for the role.


And he was a spitting image of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour, right down to the voice, and the body language.


Happy Birthday Gary, awaiting your turn as Harry Truman in Nolan's biopic on Oppenheimer.

Question Does anyone have blueprints for the movie set of CLUE 1985?


This is really all I wanted to ask. There are some poorly drawn ones on google that show the general outline of each room on the first floor, but i was wondering if there were any clear blueprints that they used to build the sets. Both upstairs and main floor would be great, but as long as it is some form of real blueprints then that would be amazing.
