  1. This sure had a terrific marketing campaign... only the trailers showed a little bit too much and could have been more impactful.

    Your Top 2018 Movies (so far)

    Love, Simon
  3. Ah... the times when all we had from Godzilla 2014 was the trailer and it looked absolutely fantastic.

    Ah okay. Well, I seem to be a gay guy with no great appreciation for ABBA or Mamma Mia. At least not sober

    Do I have a reputation here for loving Mamma Mia? How did that happen?
  6. JJ should hand over this mystery box to Damon Lindelof.
  7. Really cool list... I sure have a lot of catching up to do. And then I do not really want to... horro movies simply have that strange effect of wanting to watch it but never being really sure if you really want to get rhough with it Personal #1 is probably Halloween still... Scream is also high up there. Texas Chainsaw Massacre is also far up my list.
  8. Just kidding but imho Titanic was much more than that. It was a very believable and engrossing bringing to life of 1912 society... the last months of a world bound to go under during and after WWI. The best "fin de siècle" portrayal out there. A lot of what caused Europe (and later the US) to sleepwalk its way into the war is similar to what led to to the death of those 1500 crew and passengers. Also I think the consistency in which this movie keeps showing up on "best" lists even on the most male dominated fronts shows that for many people there was much more in this than "love" (or that aspect was simply done too well to be rejected). Imho there is a lot in there... the brillance being that it is possible to just watch it as a romance and/or a disaster movie at the same time.
  9. The problem of this franchise in a nutshell. Quote some of the old stuff, make it a bit more epic, a bit more modern and throw it at as many screens as possible. This will work a bit longer for the "Episodes" than the spin-offs. But nor for long.
