Movies We've Seen Thread

Within the context of what Ken and Harry are discussing, that discourse is hysterical.  We all had true LOL moments throughout the flick.  Yet plenty of shocking times, too.  

Like you, we're all fans of dark humor, so appreciated McDonagh's ability to skillfully navigate through it in the film.  As a character actor, Gleeson is a movie treasure.  He's great in everything.  And I'd put Colin Farrell's performance in In Bruges as some of his finest work ever.

Bruges really does look like a beautiful/historic city with lots of places and things to explore.  Awesome that you actually toured it.  

McDonagh was nominated for best Original Screenplay--he really is a gifted writer.  His plays are similarly darkly hilarious--The Lieutenant of Inishmore is lol.  He did 7 Psychopaths and won for Three Billboards (but I think In Bruges was much better than both of them).  

His brother John also writes and directs--if you like Gleeson (and we love him) he was in two good ones--Calvary and the stupid funny The Guard.

After working in the Airline biz for 34.5 years Covid 19 has sent me to an early retirement which means I am allowed to smoke again. 1st movie watched stoned — “Dr. Strange” needless to say I enjoyed

So I finally sacked up and pulled the trigger on After Earth. I'm officially all in on this piece of sh*t. Jaden Smith's acting is legit the worst gig ever. The story makes no sense. The effects are t

Had this in the wrong thread:   From the old folks file:  Lately, the wife and I have been exposing our 19 year-old to some great, classic flicks.  Last night was "Sunset Boulevard", starring William

We all LOVED three billboards.  What a great/complex story.  I think Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell are the best American actors today by a mile.  

Started 7 Psychopaths a while back, but could not get through it.  After watching In Bruges, family said we need to revisit the film.

Sound of Metal was really good.  Just a beautiful movie.

Absolutely loved the movie.  Start of the film is not where you wind up by the end.  Beautiful story with excellent acting.

Been on my list for awhile! Just got my wisdom teeth out so it may be time to lay around and watch that one!

Even if it did, I have never been one to enjoy scotch! I do however appreciate the suggestion 😂

I don't know why I let it happen, but watched the new Melissa McCarthy thing in Netflix with the wife last weekend (Thunder Force). Same silly humor as all her other stuff, but Jason Bateman absolutely stole the movie. There's 2 or 3 scenes he had that had me dying. Just fast forward to those.

I gotta say, we’ve actually loved some of her recent movies-they kill me- but we couldn’t get through it. 

Typically her sidekick plays off on her really well. This one, not so much. 

And we like stupid movies. Spy. The Heat. Bridesmaids. Identify Thief.
