    Not a new one, and certainly not a 'cheery' one, but you could do worse than Reese Witherspoon in 'The Wild'. Rings a lot of bells for me, probably because I lost both my parents (particularly my Mom) too early. Worth a look.

    So far Rogue One is getting some pretty good reviews. Hearing the special effects are ridiculous.

    Sounds like that's a great one to see in IMAX too! I figure I'll let the rush die down then go see it.

    Watched a pretty good one last night....'Jungle'



    Daniel Radcliff stars as Yossi Ghinsburg, a guy who headed out into the Amazon jungle in 1981 with 2 friends and a sketchy guide with what you might call anticipated results. Definitely will hold your attention.

    Available on Netflix.

    Never even seen the previews for that one Boone.

    I’m pretty jazzed to see ‘The Last Jedi’!

    Watched an interesting movie last night...'Tale of Tales...'. Beautifully shot, based on some old Italian Fairy Tales and shot at a number of old Italian castles.

    Couldn't find the thread about Movies you've seen that you cannot stop watching once you start thread...

    I started watching Shawshank Redemption this morning, could...not...stop!

    I hate A Few Good Men- guess I’m alone there. The military stuff is just so overblown it’s ridiculous to me. I guess ‘suspending disbelief’ is key to enjoying a movie and I just can’t with that one.... Shawshank is a top 10 forever, if only for ‘Get busy living. Or get busy dying.’ Words to live by.

    Yeah, Shawshank isn't too "deep", but there are hidden metaphors for me throughout the movie.

    Not a fan of American Beauty, but will take or leave A Few Good Men.

    One I watched recently so I was able to stop yesterday was The Firm. I like those John Grisham movies, but can stop watching if I've seen one recently.

    Some of you long-time members probably know I'm a horror movie fan. Watched a really good one from Guillermo Del Toro (who I'm becoming a big fan of) called 'The Devil's Backbone'. In Spanish with subtitles. Very good.

    'Hostiles' is a good one. Just released on PPV, Amazon Prime, etc....Christian Bale plays a burned out frontier soldier tasked with delivering former foe and Native American Chief and his family to their former homelands. Intensely engrossing.

    If you liked 'The Revenant', you'll really dig this one.

    Great performance by both Bale and his female co-star Rosamund Pike make for a pretty amazing movie.

    IMDb: Hostiles (26 January 2018 (USA))
    In 1892, a legendary Army captain reluctantly agrees to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory.
