Horseman,

I’m with you. I didn’t love it but I certainly didn’t think it was as bad many others, including Ryan Reynolds, thinks it was. But, I’m no fan of comic books either, so I’m no purist.

Hmm....i read comics as a wee nipper, but that was a long, long time ago. When Marvel/DC first hit the big screen, they were very entertaining and I liked them (Not you, Green Lantern!) but I got bored with the repetitive format some 10 years ago. I didn't even go to the cinema to watch Endgame. In fact, I think Age of Ultron was the last one.

I’ll spare the commentary on how online media seems to have shifted to list based formats over the years, and simply put this here. It’s a list of long movies that are good because that needed to exist. Maybe it has something to do with the constant push for quantity over quality and lists are easier to make… wait. Wasn’t going to go into that.

It’s a decent list of movies. I haven’t seen them all, and will check a few out.

Deadpool is the only superhero movie franchise I'll watch. At some point in the middle of Age of Ultron back in 2015, I just threw up my hands and said "that's it. I can't do this anymore." The Marvel thing got too cutesy and self-aware. Yes, Deadpool is cutesy and self-aware, but he's making fun of it, and it's funny.

Deadpool 2 was a good sequel btw. I know it won't have been a lot of people's cup of tea, but I also thought the Top Gun sequel was good and far better than the original.

Agreed on foreign film, Moonzar. Some of the best stuff I've seen lately has been Indian. In addition, I loved Godzilla -1... which is significant because I absolutely hate kaiju movies and expected to hate -1, too. It was a really masterfully done movie and all for $15 million in production budget... which is less than most Hollywood productions spend on catering.

Oh yes, i saw godzilla -1, it was surprisingly good.

Not sure why but there is kind of a rebirth about godzilla in Japan these days. They even put a giant one on a skycrapper in Tokyo.

Okay so I’m up watching my Mom’s dogs for the week while she’s on holiday. Turns out my brother got her an android box. Between this and my PlayStation I’m hoping not to see the sun much.

The Wolverine: It was a fun movie. I turned off the last 20 minutes.
Just put on Apocalypse Now after checking the list I posted. It seems this is the 3:15hr extended version. Whatever. I’ve got the time. How have I never seen this? I feel like I’ve started it and given up a few times over the years.

Raylorne,

You’ve never seen Apocalypse Now? You are in for a treat, albeit a dark treat. Next you should check out the Deer Hunter. Another classic.

Ooooh yeah deer hunter. I’ll do that next. I’m having to pause this movie a fair bit. I’ve still got an hour left. Definitely seen this movie before, but I’ve forgotten most of it. Combined with the extended scenes it’s mostly been a new experience.

I’ve definitely don’t remember what’s coming up. The dinner with the French I vaguely recall. I started a fire with the expectation of finishing the movie while it burned itself up from start. I built the fire poorly and spent a lot of time screwing around with it. Now it’s going and the sun is about to set. I think I’ll sit out here with my beverage and the dogs and finish the movie tomorrow. It’s going to feel obligatory at that point but c’est la vie.

I thought there are certain films that EVERYONE has seen, and quite taken back when I hear things to the contrary, like Raylorne not seeing Apocalypse Now. I thought this may be an isolated incident, but then my wife tells me she has never seen E.T.

What on earth...

I've never seen Titanic or Shawshank.

I know I need to remedy Shawshank, but I have no desire to watch Titanic.
