Didn't see any movie thread around so I'll make this one the one. Have you watched anything interesting sushi?
I just finished watching Underworld, I actually started it many months ago but due to watching it on TV with half an hour long announcements decided to drop it, only to pic it back up now. I'm surprised that this movie is as complex as it is since I thought it would be just a cheap action flick, there are a lot of moments that felt very satisfactory only due to implications from characters and their previous actions. The actress was also very pretty and the action sequences were decent, but I doubt the sequels are as good as the original despite having an obvious cliffhanger ending and leaving a lot of stuff in the air (what happens to the lycan covenant and Michael? Does Selene actually get to be with the vampires again or does this relationship exile her from it).
In the end, I liked this a lot. Post whatever movies you have watched.

I watched Tigers Are Not Afraid last week and it was a quite decent one, surprisingly great acting from mostly a child-based cast and great plot

Not a movie, but it was long enough. Watched doom patrol. Wanted to check it out because I loved the comics as a kid, first volume of Grant Morrisons run was at my library. Surprised how much the show matched the comic, 1 back story changed and 1 character added. Don't think they'll follow the comics plotline though. They also changed a few designs, Mr.Nobody got the worst change.

I surprisingly liked the show. Not into 40 min.-1 hour format usually, time seems to drag in shows like that, but time flied in the show. The characters were pretty fun, albeit the narrator was a massive grate, and their powers were interesting. It's nothing that left me at the edge of my seat, but I'd be willing watch another episode if I had the free time.

I do have an itching paranoia the show might wimp out of the weirdness later on and keep a half assed "weird enough for normal people, but not weird enough to alienate them".

I watched tokyo story, it was so incredible in so many ways. I would say it's the best framed movie I have ever seen, the phrase of every frame as a painting has never rung so true about any film to me. Even if there was no sound or story I would enjoy watching it anyway. But there is a story, and it's really great. Of course the famous line from the movie is "life is disappointing", but the movie isn't depressing exactly. It's simply honest. People die. Childred grow distant from their parents. Sometimes people seem to act completely selfishly, but everyone has their own circumstances. If you could empathize with them you'd see. I just think it's got this great message, it's simultaneously uplifting and saddening. Yes, life is disappointing, so let's help each other out, because one day we're all going to be dead. Honestly I can understand why many people consider this one of the best films of all time. It has pretty much revived my interest in cinema.

I don't watch movies very frequently anymore and I think most hollywood/netflix movies are crap, but I think well written, well executed movies are some of the best artistic achievements ever made.

I remember watching The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly for the first time and feeling a bit drowsy around the time they blew up the bridge, but once they reach the graveyard, I remember sitting up in bed, becoming fully awake, and thinking to myself, "I am watching something amazing."

I watched it with my family. It's nothing to write home about, but it isn't the trainwreck critics make it out to be. It's just a mediocre family film with a few funny moments. I would pay for it or watch it by choice, but if you have a kid you need to entertain and don't wanna watch frozen for the 70th time it's ok.
I do like some of the smaller details and I kinda wanted them to expand on it. The idea of Dolitte using whale power on his boat or having to go underwater to talk to fish amuses me. The movie panned in the box office so it wont get a sequel to expand on it.
A real shame because it's weaker aspects, pacing and underused characters, felt like it was due to it's rewrites and production issues.

For what's its worth, my Frozen-stricken niece was sufficiently entertained with OWL HOUSE.
