    I am almost 20 years late to the party on this one. I have been on a world war 2 kick of late and I watched 'Saving Private Ryan'. That was four days ago and i am still thinking about it. I give it all the stars.

    I also watched the saints and soldiers trilogy. They have their flaws, mainly due to being low budget, but each one has a really good message.

    Watched Sicario for the second time. Really, Sicario, and Hell or Highwater have been the best movies I've seen in the last year or two. Strong recommendation on both -- but note they're both rated R with strong violence.

    Agreed. Both are great shows.

    Guardians of the Galaxy has been on TV lately. Watched it for --- probably the double-digith time. Gotta say its a classic. At least 50 good lines. I think this one is gonna stand the test of time. I'm not a stand in line on opening night guy.....but I may make GofG2 tomorrow an exception.

    I totally agree. I went into the first with low expectations, and was blown away. Now if I see it is on tv, I sit down and watch it. I have been looking forward to the 2nd one for a while now, probably more than I was for the Star Wars movies.

    Rocket Raccoon: Well now I'm standing. Happy? We're all standing now. Bunch of jackasses, standing in a circle.

    Anyway, Rotten Tomatoes has GofG2 at 85% (vs 91% for original). IMDB at 8.1 for both movies. Probably worth a visit to the theater.

    and for some reason this doesn't seem to fall into that overdone Super Hero movie genre

    I went last night to GotG2. Oh man...............if you liked the first one, I really believe you will like this one as well. I laughed a ton. I was on teh edge of my seat. And the ending was terrific. There are 5 post movie/mid credits/after credits scenes, so hang around until the very end!!

    Loved the first Guardian of the Galaxy movie, couldn't wait for the second one to end. Maybe it was just the mood I was in but I thought #2 was average at best

    I was excited to see it, but left thinking meh!

    Bone Tomahawk with Kurt Russell. An outstanding western but beware -- seriously grisly.

    Watched 'Train to Busan' last night on Netflix. It is a Korean zombie movie. Not too bad... if you are into zombie movies.

    my wife and I watched "Snatched" last night with Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn. Giant Meh!

    all of the funny scenes you can see in the previews, and was a little too crude for my taste

    Saw Wonder Woman with my daughter tonight. I knew it had good reviews but it was surprisingly good. If you are tired of the same old super hero story this one was a pretty good fresh take. My daughter loved it.

    Haven't seen it yet, but I'm glad DC got out of its rut and realized that superheroes should be likeable instead of moody.

    We liked it too. I was surprised at how much I liked it. I grew up on DC comics and this felt like real DC stuff.

    Watched "Risen" ( Resurrection of Christ) tonight. It was very well done and touching.

    watched "The Beguiled" on the 4th starring Nicole Kidman, Collin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst and El Fanning. Its a remake of a 70's film about a injured Civil War soldier that stumbles upon a Southern Plantation for teenage girls.

    Pretty good film, Its Rated R, but could have easily been PG-13.

    My son wants to see Spider-Man... I'm not sure I can handle another reboot of a series that I never really liked to begin with. Critics are giving it good reviews, anyone go all cosplay and see it last night?

    "The Last Movie You Saw" thread

    I watched 'Baby Driver' and really liked it. Would highly recommend if you can stand a few swear words.

    Saw 'Spiderman' last night. It was ok. I liked the actor and the people in it, but the plot was kind of dumb. Wait til it comes out in video.

    Also caught 'Transformers: last knight or something'. I haven't seen any of the others beyond the first one. Wow was that terrible. Slept then parts of it and then watched the ending with a can't-believe-a-movie-this bad-was-actually-released wonderment.

    Went to see Dunkirk with my daughter on Friday night in an IMAX theater. This was a phenomenal piece of story telling.

    I anxiously await Nolan's next project.

    Agreed it was great.

    Curious about Dunkirk and its appropriateness for my 13yo. How realistic and graphic is the violence in it?

    For example I think Saving Private Ryan is a movie everyone should see but not when you are a kid.
