Has anyone seen "Mission Impossible-Fallout" starring Tom Cruise? If you did, what did you think of it?

Thanks EL. I saw it, but there was too much going on for me to write a precis on it. I wondered if it was just me. bibibibibi

The Wailing - 곡성 - (2016)

Korean. Probably a masterpiece. Might need to be watched twice. (Much of the story is hidden in plain sight.) And they call it horror but maybe I'm jaded in my media consumption because it seemed more like a drama with murdered people. In fact, if you go in expecting gore and monsters, aka "horror", you'll see some, but you may miss, as I did, the allegory and fantasy elements.

Worth it tho.

Ocean's 8 (2018)

I think what they did wrong was no opponent. In all the other Ocean's movies there's a heist, sure, but an antagonist as well. 8 is supposed to have had but [spoiler] has zero ability to respond in any antagonistic form so pffft, and we end up with a very low stakes robbery story instead. Would have been boring whether the characters were male or female.

 "The Darkest Minds" This movie had Science fiction themes and violence. A group of teens form a resistance group to fight back to claim control pf their future. For some reason, the adult world feared everyone under 18 and young folk were imprisoned.  I must admit that I got lost along the way, but perhaps that's just me. bibibibibi Has anyone else seen it?

Back when I was in middle school, it felt like prison.  Then they put tall fences all the way around the school just to let me know I wasn't imagining things.

The only flaw I can see with the described movie plot is that if a bunch of 16 year olds took over, they'd just end up oppressing people young and older than themselves, which really wouldn't me much of an improvement.

Saw "THE BOOKCLUB" yesterday. It is listed as having coarse language and sexual references. There were a few guys in a theatre of mainly older women. There was a lot of laughing going on. I think that they were interested in the fact that the women in the club were reading "Fifty shades of grey" and sequels. afafafafaf To be honest, I think it would basically be boring for many males.

The movie does sound a little boring.  On the other hand, meeting a group of women who are reading all about how fun it is to spank and be spanked has interesting possibilities.

Saw "CRAZY RICH ASIANS" yesterday at the movies. With an almost all Asian cast and the Asian culture in the spotlight, I found it different from the way most movies are presented. It has been given very good ratings here. Has anyone there seen it?

Haven't seen it yet.  Unless something really needs the big-screen treatment, I usually wait for a good qualify DVD or for it to be available on the movies on my cable TV plan.


Alien 1979 Theatrical Release.  I finally got my beautiful daughter to agree to watch it.  What she didn't know is that I'd managed to get my lovely wife to order a plush version of a facehugger.  Just when the examination of Cain's firmly attached friend began, my wife slipped out, got the facehugger, and came back to collapse on the couch.

Sadly, the plush version is more cute than scary, but my daughter did appreciate the gesture.

And Sigourney Weaver was, as always, excellent to watch.  I've still never forgiven the alien for interrupting Ripley's efforts to undress in the shuttle.  I had to wait until 1986's Half Moon Street to see the rest of the clothing come off. afafafafaf

Pardon my ignorance EL, but what is "a plush version of a facehugger"? :wtf:
