This Self/Less movie is decent. Never cared to watch it but came in on an interesting scene, then restarted it. Only halfway through but, enjoying it so far.

Stamos should have been posting his Movie reviews in a thread like this, and linking in his journal. Would be a big thread.

Bumped on cowboys and aliens yesterday on TV so i watched it.
Not bad but nothing worthy either. Good performances by Craig and Ford. Just ok SFX. Cliched and shallow plot. Dull aliens. Olivia Wilde is.... annoyingly gorgeous.
5.5/10

Re-watched "Three Kings" & "Spy Game" yesterday.. both solid movies from nearly 20 years ago.

Three Kings:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120188/

Pretty cool concept -> steal gold that Iraq stole from Kuwait while their is a cease fire, but everything goes very very wrong.. Takes place during the first US->Iraq War. Has lots of twists and turns & it gets pretty intense. Really good movie.



Spy Game:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0266987/

Could have been better but, still solid. Redford was in one of the most credible "hacking" movies of all time: "Sneakers".. Spy game is actually pretty similar, in that it seems more credible than not. I like how Redford's character in the film works people with only small bits of information



Interestingly, both movies are 7.1's on imdb. :ninja:

No Country for Old Men is pretty fantastic. For some reason I'm really drawn to the "Inhuman Antihero" characters: Neo from the Matrix, One eye from Valhalla Rising, Anton from NCfOM, Rambo, Mad Max, Lou from Nightcrawler. Most of those happen to be ridiculous fighters as well

Watch Army of Darkness if you're looking for 80s laughs. The original horror comedy

These movie channels play lots of CIA/FBI-ish movies.

Rewatched "Breach". Great movie. Based on a true story about an FBI agent who spied for Russia for 22 years.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0401997/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Hanssen

Quote
He is currently serving 15 consecutive life sentences at ADX Florence, a federal supermax prison near Florence, Colorado.

.. He was charged with selling U.S. secrets to the Soviet Union and subsequently the Russian Federation for more than US$1.4 million in cash and diamonds over a 22-year period

Three years later, Hanssen transferred to the FBI's Soviet analytical unit, which was responsible for studying, identifying, and capturing Soviet spies and intelligence operatives in the United States.

Hanssen was recalled yet again to Washington in 1987. He was given the task of making a study of all known and rumored penetrations of the FBI in order to find the man who had betrayed Martynov and Motorin; this meant that he was looking for himself.

In 1990, Hanssen's brother-in-law, Mark Wauck, who was also an FBI employee, recommended to the Bureau that Hanssen be investigated for espionage;

Despite having shown his face, disclosed his code name, and revealed his FBI affiliation, Hanssen escaped arrest when the Bureau's investigation into the incident did not advance

that wiki is nuts.

I liked ex machina a lot too. But i thnk Her is even better. Both are excellent movies with a deep look on AI and on the 'what is consciousness?' and 'are ethic rules objective?' philosophical questions. But no sci-fi movie about AI will ever overcome Blade runner. Unless maybe..... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blade_Runner_2049 ????? ( i don't think so but the hype of a sequel 35 years later is too strong, big pitty Ridley Scott is not directing it ).

Best recent sci-fi that i saw was Arrival. Which is not that sci-fi after all if you see it, the.... exoskeleton of the movie is pure sci-fi but the essence of the movie is real and deep af. Solid acting, solid scenario, solid storytelling, mouth dropping cinematography/photography/editing/sound, this movie is a masterpiece really. 9/10.

Other -not too much marketed- sci-fi movies worth watching : Moon, Europa report, Sunshine, primer, source code, spring.
And a few that are a bit ( a big bit ) more.... heavy/deep/fucked up/experimental/artistic ones : upstream color, melancholia, the double, coherence, under the skin, another earth, in your eyes, lobster.
