The fact that it's subtitled totally makes it more realistic and personally involves you in the scenario, because Mayan tribesmen communicated by reading text accompanied by an unfamiliar language.

This easily in my top 5 movies that I've seen the most times in my life. But never on the big screen. I'm a bit jealous. Glad you got see to see it like that.

On a side not, I've noticed here at least, due to the down turn in folk going to the cinema, that they are showing a lot more old / classic films again in the cinema here. No bad thing in my book.
The best part was possibly the post-credit scene where he says "it's over, go home" , and this time I would have to go home, haha. Seems like re-running classic movies is a world wide thing then :) They had Back To The Future and The Exorcist as future showings. Are you going to go to any?

Tron (1982)

A technical masterpiece for its day, and I think the style and concept holds up today.

Class of 1999. 8/10

The Blob. 8/10

Great old classic stuff to watch.
Which version of The Blob? Not seen the '58 version, but the '88 one is pretty good, in a cheesy kind of way.
Jackie Brown (1997)
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Not really as talked about in the same reverence as, say Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction. But I love this as much as those other two.

I need to see that one. Yea, I hear it's his least best film.

I think out of Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, I probably prefer Reservoir Dogs but they're both good. Pulp Fiction was filmed uniquely but I think I like the story of Reservoir Dogs more and the twists were crazy. I'm not sure if you saw The Hateful Eight. That movie is really good.
This may sound a little strange, but the last QT movie I saw was Death Proof. I did not like it, and felt super let down from high expectations, haha. You should definitely give Jackie Brown a watch, it retains a lot of that early Tarantino style and music.

It's a tough choice between Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction for me, I can't really choose between them. But the cop scene in RD is still one of the most disturbing scenes I've seen in cinema.

Thanks for the rec on Hateful Eight. Would you suggest the original version of the extended Netflix mini-series?

I forgot about Death Proof. Lol Yea, I never saw that one and didn't have an interest in seeing it. It doesn't seem like my type of movie. I think I'll like Jackie Brown. Thanks for letting me know. 🙂

It is a tough choice between Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs. They're both superb. I need to watch both of them again.

Tbh, I didn't even know there was two versions. Looks like the extended version is the one on Netflix, which is where I saw it so I'd recommend that one. 😅 Wow, I was oblivious to that.
Yes, you're not missing anything by not watching that one :)

Have you seen any other QT movies? Curious to know what you thought, if you have. Haven't watched either Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs for a long time either, repeat viewing definitely needed. It's kind of interesting when watching films repeatedly over a long time, how well they age or if they quickly date.

Will try the Netflix version, thanks! If you ever get around to watching Jackie Brown, be interested to know what you thought.

Lol Yea, someone online told me about Death Proof and said it's no good. I also saw Django Unchained and liked it a lot. Inglorious Basterds is a good one, too. I haven't seen Kill Bill yet. Have you seen those movies? I need to watch them.

I had posted on here months ago and joked that Tarantino films are like Pixar movies for adults. 🤣
Inglorious Basterds is one I keep meaning to see. Recently moved to a new area so have more time on my hands to catch up on such things. I did see Kill Bill 1 & 2 and I thought they were ...alright. Only ever watched them once so perhaps a repeat viewing is needed.

lol I guess they kind of are, one end of the spectrum to the other - and let's be honest who wouldn't love to see Toy Story the Tarantino cut? Fave Pixar movie? Not sure what mine would be. Maybe the Toy Story series as a whole. Other than their established IPs, did enjoy Soul immensely - way better than I expected.

Groundhog Day (1993)

Came up on my recommended on Amazon Prime. Even though I've watched it many times, could not resist another.
Brain Damage (DVD from Netflix mail). This is from the director of Basket Case which I also watched recently. It's about an ancient, small turd-like being that eats brains and also gives its host that carries it around hallucinations by injecting them with its juice. It's pretty decent, has a good mix of horror and comedy.
Saw a few images - definitely looks like something I'll watch.
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Extended Edition.

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Can't believe it's been over 20 years already. First time I've seen this version, and in glorious 4K. Looks spectacular, and is still an amazing movie. This was my original favourite of the trilogy. Wonder if it still will be.

Melancholia (2011) ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ✴
It's bleak yet at the same time a beautiful film. I felt pretty emotional at the end.

The Cabin in the Woods (2011) ⭐⭐⭐✴✴
I liked it, it's enjoyable enough but because of its reputation, I was expecting something close to a masterpiece. As it is, it's a well made horror movie that isn't overly scary.

The Game (1997) ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ✴

I'm a big fan of David Fincher movies (Benjamin Button is one of my all time favourites. Se7en and Fight Club, also classics), and this has long been on my list to watch. It's an excellent, well paced thriller which keeps you wondering right up to the end.
I remember enjoying this when I watched it, but it's been many years. I'm a big fan of his films as well. Though I've not seen Benjamin Button.

Have you his TV show, Mindhunter? He produced and directed a fair number of the episodes. Only 2 series, the 3rd looks like it's been sidelined and may never happen, sadly. But the first 2 are well worth watching.
I highly recommend Benjamin Button - some people say it's a Forrest Gump rip-off, and I can see why they say that, because they have a similar 'feel'. But to me, they are different enough and the film is fantastic - I never tire of watching it.

I've not seen Mindhunter, tho have heard of it - I'll check it out.

Fall (2022) ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ✴
Pretty intense, several anxious moments about a couple of women who get trapped on top of a 2000ft high TV tower. A couple of 'really?' moments especially when it went all Fight Club/Gravity but overall very enjoyable.
Circle (2015) ⭐⭐✴✴✴
Mildly interesting social experiment type movie. Kept thinking it was going to get more interesting, some twist or change in direction but it stayed consistent throughout, to its detriment imho.
Drag Me To Hell (2009) ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ✴
Second time viewing it. The ending is still as disturbing to me as it ever was (in some ways it reminds me of the ending of an underrated John Carpenter Classic, Prince of Darkness), and it's an entertaining horror flick about the consequences of making moral decisions.
Not watched it in a long time, but I remember enjoying and thinking it showed Sam Rami still had it at the time.
Prince of Darkness is another classic. Love much of Carpenters, stuff. Might track a copy down and rewatch both this month. 👌

And just looking at Sam Rami'a IMDB page, I had no idea he exec produced the TV series American Gothic, which I loved as well. (there's another useless random fact for you 🙃)
Yes, me too - his 70s/80s films are pretty much all amazing and re-watchable. Not to mention the musical scores he wrote for them, absolutely memorable. Looking at his credits make me want to watch a bunch of them again. Maybe I will do that :) If you do watch again, be good to hear what you think upon re-watch.

Only vaguely heard of American Gothic, but looks interesting - might have to check it out.
The Inbetweeners (2011) ⭐⭐⭐✴✴ and The Inbetweeners 2 (2014) ⭐⭐⭐✴✴

I like to re-watch the TV series (which I would give 5 stars) now and again, when I'm feeling a bit down. And then the movies when I'm done. Both are entertaining, not quite hitting the heights of the TV show, with some good laugh out loud moments - but coupled with some so-so acting from various new supporting actors. I'd probably rate the first one a little higher than the second.
Hellraiser (2022) ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ✴ ✴

I'd rate Hellbound: Hellraiser 2, the uncut version, as close to the pinnacle of 80s horror movies. In the franchise, I've only seen entries 1-3, mainly because the sequels beyond that have been rated so very badly. This latest movie is definitely a step in the right direction, but falls short of being great (for me). Still, set up nicely for a sequel, which I hope they do.
