    Any Project Blue Book fans in here? I thoroughly enjoyed season 1 and 2 on the History channel. Hoping someone picks up season 3.

    I tried watching that new Borat movie. Not for me. Didn't make it very far before turning it off. That schtick isn't bad in 30 second doses, but a whole movie??? Forget it.

    I'm almost done with the new Netflix series "The Queen's Gambit". I like it a lot.

    The Last Full Measure on Hulu. Coming from a military family, it kicked my butt. True story, a lot of great actors.

    The Parallax View - American political thriller

    Warren Beatty

    Weird movie, but good. Takes place in many locations. The backwoods, hayseed country, the space needle, skyscrapers, convention centers, Duke's of Hazard jumps with old school police cars and people with terrible hair,

    There is a fantastic bar room brawl scene.
    There is a creepy brainwashing scene.

    Overall, I'd watch again. Not great. But pretty good.
    Also, it could use a remake.

    Taken

    (also titled 96 Hours and The Hostage) is a 2008 English-language French action-thriller film written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, and directed by Pierre Morel. It stars Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen, Katie Cassidy, Leland Orser, and Holly Valance. Neeson plays Bryan Mills, a former CIA operative who sets about tracking down his teenage daughter Kim (Grace) and her best friend Amanda (Cassidy) after the two girls are kidnapped by Albanian human traffickers while traveling in France during a vacation.


    Taken was released in France on 27 February 2008 by EuropaCorp, and later in the United States on 30 January 2009 by 20th Century Fox. The movie grossed more than $226 million. Despite mixed reviews from critics, numerous media outlets cited the film as a turning point in Neeson's career that redefined and transformed him to an action film star.[5][6][7] The first film in the Taken franchise, the film was followed by two sequels—Taken 2 and Taken 3—released in 2012 and 2014, respectively. A television series premiered in 2017 on NBC, with Clive Standen portraying a younger Bryan Mills.

    I'll post a recommendation for a movie I watched, probably for the third or fourth time.
    I'm not sure if anyone will agree, but I'll make a case for watching Doc Hollywood.

    Am I jumping up and down, saying, "You've GOT to see this!"
    Nope.

    Is it a classic?
    Nope.

    Is it an cult sensation/underground buzz flick?
    Nope.

    It's not Citizen Kane. But that's my point - not every movie is supposed to be a classic.
    The purpose of a film is simple - to entertain.
    And for me, that's what Doc Hollywood is, simply an entertaining movie, providing a little escapism from an ever-increasingly screwy world.

    A good story, told via a good script (writing is the foundation of any good film.)
    And really good performances all the way around, from Keaton to Julie Warner, Ogden Stiers and Woody.
    And terrific contributions from Barnard Hughes and, believe it or not - George Hamilton.
    Even all the smaller roles are well cast and acted.

    Nothing special, just a simple, unassuming little movie that not too many people will notice.
    But for me, it's accomplishes exactly what a movie should achieve - an hour and a half of entertainment.

    Not every director sets out to make the next Citizen Kane.
    And that's a good thing.

    Fargo 4th season - Good acting and story. As Fargo has been so far.

    The Undoing -Just three episodes out but Nicole Kidman does excellent acting with interesting story, Hugh Grant plays her hubby.

    Moonbase 8 - watched 1st episode... noup

    Frank - about a band that's... different. Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal & Michael Fassbender. ****/5

    The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
    - Terry Gilliams latest, to be honest, not very good and didn't finish it. I'll give it another shot later.

    The Luminaries - Eva Greens latest tv-show. Tries hard but is quite awfull, somehow cheaply made and acting isn't good. Hard to say about story after two episodes.

    Melancholia - Lars von Triers end of the world movie, one of my favorite movies. Another planet is about to collide with earth and people need to live with it knowing that nothing will save them.

    Narc
    is a 2002 American neo-noir crime thriller film written and directed by Joe Carnahan and starring Jason Patric and Ray Liotta. The plot revolves around the efforts of two police detectives in search of the murderer of an undercover police officer. As they investigate, they engage in unethical behavior and uncover dark secrets that will challenge their fragile relationship.


    Ronin
    is a 1998 American action thriller film directed by John Frankenheimer and written by John David Zeik and David Mamet, under the pseudonym Richard Weisz. It stars Robert De Niro, Jean Reno, Natascha McElhone, Stellan Skarsgård, Sean Bean, and Jonathan Pryce. The film is about a team of former special operatives hired to steal a mysterious, heavily guarded briefcase while navigating a maze of shifting loyalties. Ronin is noted for its realistic car chases in Nice and Paris, and its convoluted plot that uses the briefcase as a MacGuffin.

    Frankenheimer signed to direct Zeik's screenplay, which Mamet rewrote to expand De Niro's role and develop plot details, in 1997. The film was photographed by Robert Fraisse in his native France from November 3, 1997, to March 3, 1998. Professional racing car drivers coordinated and performed the vehicle stunts, and Elia Cmiral scored the film, his first for a major studio.

    Ronin
    premiered at the 1998 Venice Film Festival before its general release on September 25. Critics were generally positive about the film's action, casting, and technical aspects, while the plot attracted criticism. The film performed moderately well at the box office, grossing $70.7 million on a budget of $55 million. Ronin, Frankenheimer's last well-received feature film,[6] was considered to be a return to form for the director. Film critic and historian Stephen Prince called the film Frankenheimer's "end-of-career masterpiece".[7] The car chases, which were favorably compared with those in Bullitt and The French Connection,[8][9] were included on several media outlets' lists as the best depicted on film.

    Whiplash
    is a 2014 American drama film written and directed by Damien Chazelle. It depicts the relationship between an ambitious jazz drummer (Miles Teller) and an abusive perfectionist bandleader (J. K. Simmons) at the fictional Shaffer Conservatory. Paul Reiser and Melissa Benoist co-star.

    Whiplash premiered in competition at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival on January 16, 2014, as the festival's opening film; it won the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize for drama.[4] Sony Pictures acquired the worldwide distribution rights, releasing the film under its Sony Pictures Classics and Stage 6 Films banners for its North American and international releases respectively.[5] The film opened in limited release domestically in the United States and Canada on October 10, 2014, gradually expanding to over 500 screens and finally closing on March 26, 2015. The film grossed $49 million on a production budget of $3.3 million.

    The film received widespread critical acclaim, with particular praise for Simmons's performance, Cross' editing, and Chazelle's screenplay. At the 87th Academy Awards in February 2015, Whiplash won Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Supporting Actor for Simmons, and was also nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture.

    Die Hard
    is a 1988 American action film directed by John McTiernan and written by Jeb Stuart and Steven E. de Souza. It stars Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Alexander Godunov, and Bonnie Bedelia. Based on the 1979 novel Nothing Lasts Forever by Roderick Thorp, Die Hard follows New York City police detective John McClane (Willis) who is caught up in a terrorist takeover of a Los Angeles skyscraper while visiting his estranged wife. The film features Reginald VelJohnson, William Atherton, Paul Gleason, and Hart Bochner in supporting roles.

    Desperate for work, Stuart was offered the job of adapting Thorp's novel into a screenplay. His finished draft was greenlit immediately by 20th Century Fox, which was eager for a summer blockbuster for the following year. Finding a star proved difficult: the role of McClane was offered to a host of the decade's top stars, including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, all of whom turned it down. Willis, who was known mainly for his TV work, was eventually chosen and paid $5 million for the role, an unheard-of figure at the time that attracted considerable controversy towards the film prior to its release. Filming began in November 1987 on a $25 million–$35 million budget. McTiernan and De Souza made alterations to the script throughout filming, including adding and changing scenes, and altering the ending. Die Hard was filmed almost entirely on location in and around Fox Plaza in Los Angeles.

    Die Hard was a box office success, grossing between $139.8 million–$141.5 million, and defying pre-release expectations that Willis' lack of star appeal would hurt the film's success. It was the tenth-highest-grossing film of 1988 and the highest-grossing action film. Initial reviews were mixed: criticism was levelled at the violence, plot, and Willis' performance, while McTiernan's direction and Rickman's charismatic portrayal of the villain Hans Gruber were praised. Die Hard received four Academy Award nominations. The film elevated Willis to leading-man status and took Rickman from relative obscurity to celebrity.

    In the wake of its release, Die Hard has been critically re-evaluated and is now considered to be one of the greatest action films ever made. It also has retroactively been called one of the best Christmas films, since the film's events take place on a Christmas Eve. It revitalized the action genre, largely due to its depiction of McClane as a vulnerable and fallible protagonist, in contrast to the muscle-bound and invincible action heroes of its contemporaries. The film's success spawned a host of imitators, such that the term "Die Hard in/on a..." became a shorthand way of describing a film's plot, particularly one where a lone hero must fight overwhelming odds, often in a restricted environment. Die Hard is the first film in what would become a franchise, that includes four film sequels—Die Hard 2, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Live Free or Die Hard, and A Good Day to Die Hard—video games, comic books, toys, board games, clothing, and collectibles. Deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the United States Library of Congress, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry in 2017.

    Watching Breaking Bad again. It might even be better the 2nd time. I don't know how people could stand waiting a whole week between episodes.

    I’ve been doing the same. I’m on the final season. Much better this time around, especially after watching Better Call Saul.

    Catchfire,
    also known as Backtrack in a director's cut version, is a 1990 American romantic action thriller film directed by Dennis Hopper and starring Jodie Foster, Hopper, Fred Ward and Vincent Price, with cameo appearances by several notable actors, including Charlie Sheen, Joe Pesci, Catherine Keener and Bob Dylan. The film was disowned by Hopper before release and he is therefore credited under the pseudonym Alan Smithee.[1]
