I have a vast collection of Blurays and DVD's, a lot of which have remained unwatched for different reasons, so I have embarked on a 'check out the ignored movies' quest.  Last days off, I pulled

Went on a trip back to a time they called the 90's   Friday arvo I just needed to unwind and grabbed "Galaxy Quest". Good Star-Trek fandom spoof with Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Ric

The Night Manager. A new 6 part mini series about an agent recruited to infiltrate the inner circle of an arms dealer. A double episode tonight.

Last night it was back to the blockbusters with "Wonderwoman" on bluray.  I really enjoyed this one, strong female lead character and an ok story line.....this is after all a comic flick.....and excellent action, CGI effects and strong surround audio with gutsy LFE. I have seen a lot of Marvel stuff but maybe the DC Universe is worthy of more viewings......although I can't bring myself to sit through the shambolic Aquaman, from what I've seen and heard.

I watched WW84 (Wonder Woman 84) the other night.

 

It was ok, a bit cliché... or maybe it was the 80's being like that, I can't remember well. The story was ok-ish... like @stevoz said, a comic book flick. I personally think Marvel are doing a much better job, but to each their own I guess.

 

I will have to find the will (and half a working day) to watch Justice League "The Snyder Cut".

 

Cheers

This is one of my favourite movies which I seem to enjoy more with each viewing.  I find Gary Oldman compelling to watch.

Watched this tonight, bit slow moving , but anybody who has endured living in a 1 pub country town in the middle of bum Phuk nowhere , will appreciate it. Good acting and cinematography and good OST.  A nice alternative to big budget productions and suitability foreboding in parts.

Funny how when the director is unknown or they fear the film may not fare too well the resort to "produced by" instead of "directed by".

Last days off before my holiday started, I watched "Justice League" on Bluray......not too bad but already I cannot remember much from it and that just about says it all. Technically well put together but that's about it.

 

Watch Justice League | Prime Video

 

Last night I rewatched the "Total Recall" remake from 2012.....now this is a lot better than JL. The storyline is a nice twist on the original film (the main question arising: how does anyone have a two way talk to a pre-recorded message?), no Mars in sight, great special effects and a cracking audio track that will give your sub a thorough workout.  Enjoyed it a lot......again.

Last night I watched the third 'Da Vinci Code' movie "Inferno" on bluray. This one I quite enjoyed......more than Angels and Demons anyway. Storyline was still quite far fetched but to me, it made more sense than A&D's storyline. Nice surround audio as well.....and I always enjoy Tom Hanks.

Another viewing last night, this time "Suicide Squad" Extended Cut on bluray. While watching this, I was asking myself "Am I watching the perfect comic book superhero movie?".....I really loved this film. Some beautifully unhinged performances from a great cast, especially our own Margot Robbie. What a committed actress she is! Audio track is fantastic, LFE and surround activity a plenty and the storyline was fine. DC proved they can match it with Marvel with this one. Brilliant!

and a fight scene between Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Beil doesn't hurt either :popcorn:. I must hunt down my copy for the next day off.

Weird I  cant find any mention of this on search, but I’m sure it was mentioned here before. Anyhow watched this last night  on DVD. I’m not much a car buff even less car racing, but well put together with good acting by Bale and Damon and I think a extra mention to Catriona Balfe who plays Bales wife. Not just endless car racing but the story around why It happened.

Last night I watched another 'ignored movie' from my collection, 2006's "Catch A Fire" on DVD, a fairly harrowing but ultimately triumphant look at one man's (real) experience of apartheid in South Africa and directed by our own Philip Noyce. Not perfect but still very good.

.......and yes, that is a HQ Holden in the photo's.......which Australia used to export to South Africa. How times have changed.

What a blast this was!

Hadn't watched it in 20+ years or so! I remembered it being funny, it has aged very well. It provided a bunch of laughs Friday night, very well worth it. And how young they all were, after all, it was 1992....

 

Cheers,

Couple of nights ago, I watched yet another 'ignored movie' from my collection, 2006's 'The Good Shepherd' on DVD. Really enjoyed this one, the two time period story line did my head in for awhile but it all came together in the end. Great performance from Matt Damon and a stellar cast.  Long, at 160 minutes but definitely worthy.
