From my end?
You don’t even care enough to white knight for a Hollywood star who’s over it?
Yerright.

Check out JLaw insults.

#6406

Remember that?


#6407

man every second post of yours is just trying to start an argument with someone.


#6408

Ah jeez, forget it you two. It was a poor-taste attempted joke on my behalf. I apologise to JLaw unreservedly if she reads this.

I watched The Shape of Water this evening.
I was initially attracted to watching the film because of the beautiful cinematography and art treatment I saw in trailers. I’m a sucker for the ~1950’s era. Lozenges and curves, inspiring cars, and so on.

So the movie - well, I loved it.
To me, this is a story about misfits in life - people who feel they have no real place - and are trapped between defiantly swimming upstream, and the strong call to be like others. Good performances by most of the cast. Good music score. Brilliant lighting.

8.7/10

Surely it’s only an 8.6


#6414

Stuck in a hotel room in Adelaide last week with a crook wife, watched Predator, Universal Soldier & Running Man back to back.

2 x Arnie, 2 x Dolf Lundgren 1 x Jean-Claude Van Damme just awesome 90’s action movies. While I say that a bit tongue in cheek, Predator actually stands up pretty well if you don’t look too close.

Also watched Logan, X-men lost me a bit a while ago but really enjoyed it


#6417

Predator is an outright classic and is amongst the best action films ever made.

Running Man is also a solid movie.

Cyborg is better than Universal Soldier in my opinion.


#6418

Predator was before it’s time. Technology still holds up today.


#6419

The Director (John McTiernan) in my opinion is responsible for two of the best action films ever made. The other being Die hard!

He’s been released from prison in the last few years and is currently working on a new movie.

Will be interesting what effect incarceration has had on him :grinning:


#6420

Agreed. Benefits greatly from an absolute knock out score too. The director peaked with predator and die hard


#6421

What he go to jail for?


#6422

Huh he directed The Hunt for the Red October as well, top movie. That’s got to be some sort of all time roll of movies Directed in a row


#6423

Wiretapping a producer of a film and other surveillance charges.

According to the information it was a completely heavy handed penalty but apparently he wasn’t too cooperative😊
