So I am guessing you will not watch the other seven movies. ? Tokyo Drift was the absolute worst one If you can imagine. ?

The beginning is the best part of the move. Your right about the movie..

Saw Dunkirk a couple years ago (?) and know what you're saying but knew the story going in so expected all of it. Not pleasant but an interesting part of history.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (Netflix): An anthology of several Western stories. There are a few light moments but all things considered not a "happy" movie. Only one of the stories has what I'd call a "happy ending." Kinda interesting, but I don't think I'd watch it again. 

Dunkirk (HBOMax): This is also NOT a happy-fun feel-good movie. Desperation is in every frame. I can't recall a single light moment in the whole thing. A good movie, but not a fun one by any means. 

We saw Dunkirk on an IMAX screen. The theater was packed and completely silent from beginning to end.

Pluto TV (free) has most of the James Bond movies this month. Looks like most if not all of them pre-Daniel Craig. I'm planning to watch all the early Connery ones, up through at least Diamonds Are Forever. I haven't seen most of them in decades. 

At the moment, I'm halfway through Thunderball. 

Dr. No is just awful in every way. I'm surprised that anyone decided to continue with the series after that pig. 

From Russia with Love is a quantum advancement/improvement. Not my favorite Bond movie, but not horrible. 

Goldfinger is still pretty good. Lots of DB 5 action, at any rate. Still don't believe a '64 Ranchero  could carry a crushed Lincoln Continental--with a million dollars worth of gold bullion (@ $32/oz!) in the trunk--though. :rolleyes:

For a while I've believed that Thunderball is my alltime favorite (and IMHO the high point of the franchise). So far I'm not seeing anything to change my mind--it's slick, it's classy, the plot is still plausible, and it's just old-school cool. Looking forward to You Only Live Twice, which I retain a favorable impression of but haven't seen in a long time.

Was referring to the whole movie Dr. No.

Just re-watched Saving Private Ryan (now on Netflix).  Hadn't seen it since it was on HBO after it first came out. I'd forgotten Ted Danson  and Dennis Farina were in it, and Nathan Fillion and Bryan Cranston weren't on my radar then, so it was cool to see them too. Pretty good movie--I remembered it as being the best WWII movie since Kelly's Heroes, or maybe since A Bridge Too Far. (Band of Brothers hadn't been made yet.) 

I skipped the initial D-Day sequence--just too sad and depressing to watch again. There was some stuff in the plot that was just plain silly, but overall, it's a great movie and has held up.

One of my favourite comedies is “ Oh Brother Where Art Thou”. Starring George Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson. I could watch it over and over. Great sound track too.

Agreed...and I have! 

From what I’ve seen so far of Coen Brothers films, ‘O Brother Where Art Thou’ is the masterpiece out of them all. All the expressions and mannerisms of the characters and the statements they make are endlessly hilarious... and the soundtrack superbly fits the movie. I laugh every time when the kid comes out poppin’ off rifle rounds.

Scene after scene is great in their own way. I remember the first time I saw this I was amazed at the acting and how dumb these guys were. Seemed as if they were really that dumb and not even acting. They deserve a lot of credit for that.

And yes, the music is very good and I'm not really a fan of that type but it fits the movie perfectly.

One of my favourite lines: “Them syreens did this to Pete. They loved him up and turned him into a horny toad.”
And how devastated Delmar is when John Goodman crushes him...😂

Another great comedy in a different vein is “Heartbreak Kid”. It’s a loose remake of 1972 movie. It didn’t get great reviews, but I enjoyed it.

“Well, me and you was fixin’ to fornicate!”

 

...and Everette constantly blabbering and answering for others... reminds me of people I’ve known.

I watched the brand new movie "nobody". It was OK. It reminded me of john wick, but much less story. Honestly, i really only watched it because the guy from breaking bad and better call saul was the star. However the movie was more of a storyless shoot em up. 

Definitely not worth the 20 dollars streaming cost right now, but when it gets to a few dollars, maybe

Watched 2067 on Amazon. I wasn’t impressed🤨. It didn’t make much sense...even for a science fiction movie. Also watched Greenland. It was OK.

Thanks. I've seen the ads and it looked interesting. Now I know to save my money till I can see it for free.
