    Forgot to tell you I saw Tarantino's ONCE UPPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD and I liked it a lot... specially the photography, the colours, them ambiences. Nice movie to clear your eyes from a "superheroes overdose". ;)

    I'm really looking forward to seeing the new Joker film.... From what I've read, it sounds like the type of film I'll enjoy...

    I watched You Were Never Really Here the other night, tough but a good film in my opinion...

    Horror movie October rolls on in my house.

    Last night I finally, after almost 40 years, got to see the second half of Alien. You see, when I was a very young child, my parents took me to a double feature at the drive in. The first movie was probably Star Wars or something, I forget. We got through the second movie up until the part when the baby alien busts out through the guy's chest cavity, and my parents were like "OK, I think that's enough" and we went home. And I never watched the film again until last night. I found it quite enjoyable, but not particularly frightening. I guess I find it hard to get creeped out about something that could only happen in deep space.

    Tonight I watched Sleepy Hollow. I can't believe it came out 20 years ago, and I'm just getting around to it now. The original story has a lot of local significance in the town where I grew up. The character Ichabod Crane was based on a schoolteacher from Kinderhook NY, who was a friend of the author Washington Irving. I once attended a grammar school called Ichabod Crane, and many local businesses have names that reference Sleepy Hollow in one way or another. There is a real Sleepy Hollow as well, but it's quite a bit further south than Kinderhook. Anyhow, as you might expect from Tim Burton, the film is more stylish than scary, but it's a great bit of fun.

    My lord, you just watched all of Alien? So I’m guessing you’ve never seen any of the sequels? Aliens is one of my fave movies, though it is very different from Alien.

    No, I've never seen any of the sequels. I guess I'll have to add Aliens to my queue.

    It’s much more of an action movie whereas Alien is more of a horror/suspense film. But a great fun movie, with a million quotable bits, half of them from the great, late Bill Paxton

    So I've been back in sci-fi mode, and I've been watching a series of movies I had originally avoided thinking they would be too juvenile. I speak of The Hunger Games. I've now seen the first three, and I've got the fourth one here. I have to say: I'm hooked. First of all, the cast is a dream: Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, plus the talented young Jennifer Lawrence in the protagonist's role, just to name a few. Even Lenny Kravitz turns out to be an excellent actor. It also happens to be a great story, full of moral ambiguities and a real human heart.

    I love these types of stories: rebellion against a dystopian future state. Everything from Star Wars to V for Vendetta to The Matrix fits this mold. My GF just recommended I check out the Divergent franchise. Any other recommendations along these lines?

    I think the maze runner series is like that, although I haven’t seen them. Mortal engines is kind of a steam punk take on that theme.

    Though they date back to 1966 and 1976, respectively, I would recommend Fahrenheit 451 and Logan’s Run.

    Wow, Logan's Run ! Loved it. The TV Series, Too.
    Seen the Joker.
    Well.
    It was a really, really great movie, Joaquin Phoenix's play was top notch, oscar-stuff.
    But I didn't really liked it. This movie was a great Wine, and I'm a Cola guy.

    @Bassist4Eris rebellion and dystopian future ? The Divergent and Maze Runner series are OK (teen stuff but OK.)
    If you're on Netflix, I'd say check out The Giver, Extinction, and the Series Altered Carbon.
    There also are some pure Gems in the series Death Love Robots, too.

    Altered Carbon was kind of wacky but I enjoyed it a lot. And for sure some good shorts in the DLR series.
