Forrest Gump: a remarkable masterpiece. While watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (which is a great movie as well) it constantly reminded me of it and I had to rewatch it.

I like bleak films, the reason being that I dislike films that try to sugarcoat everything and pretend everything in life is peachy. I just like a good story when it's all said and done, whether it's a superhero film or a film about the apocalypse. I know a guy that refuses to watch The Wire tv show because he's not interested in the gang violence. I tried explaining the premise of the show and that it's not all black and white and that the show offers perspective. He'll watch The Walking Dead with its extreme violence but he won't watch The Wire. Go figure  ???
try “I was never really here.” About as bleak as it gets...save for maybe “The Road” which ismambleak love story.

Impossible to get a ticket in a decent theater here in Seattle, even Sunday at 9am... Might be a good time to go watch Shazam with the kiddo...

Endgame was fantastic. Best description of it is...dense...you don't want to get out of your seat even for a moment

Took my son to watch Shazam. It was fun - 8/10 maybe? After the various Marvel movies it feels a bit like a movie school project: a lot more character development, a lot less wizz-bang. DC created an interesting character.

We watched 'prisoners' with Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman. Really liked it, and never heard of it before (released in 2014). Good small-town America thriller...one of those films were it is mostly nightime and raining. Perfect.

Mandy: 7/10

Surprisingly decent, despite the first half of the film being dreadfully slow. But, I like shlocky b-movie films and this one hits all the notes.

This is an excellent movie and was my introduction to the director, Denis Villeneuve, whose done quite well for himself since.

Loved the 80’s references A bit Willy Wonka but still pretty good

@gaseousclay there was a rumour that Spielberg wanted to get Gene Wilder to play Halliday, but it sounds like that was speculation.

Interesting. Halliday's hair even looked like Gene Wilder's. Gene Wilder was also my favorite comedian of all time.
