Kong was fun, nothing special or groundbreaking.. overall pretty forgettable but the camera work and action scenes made up for the cheese and miscasts. Brule's hilarious as always, Brie Larson is a fox but some of her lines were painful

Get out was great. Laughed pretty hard a few times and let's just say I had a lively audience that definitely enhanced the experience a bit...

I've just watched the trailer for Baby Driver. Looks great. But unfortunately I've now basically seen the entire film as the main plot points are all covered off. I hate this. Seems to be a relatively modern thing?

Baby Driver was featured at SXSW yesterday, so we may only have a few months left to talk about other movies before Car Chase Movie for Millenials conquers 2017. :-P

I think Baby Driver's love interest will cause some serious conflicts with his dangerous lifestyle

Gotta love any trailer that ends with a "WHATT THEE FFF-"

That's some oscar fudge right there!

I've said it before so I won't drone on, but trailers man... the worst.

T2 Trainspotting wasn't profound or necessary but I had a damn good time watching it. Fun relapse.

Yes because the lead and the love interest are in their 20s and no one else in the cast is, it's clearly a movie made for millennials only.

I saw The Zookeeper's Wife. It's decent, not terrible not amazing. Typical Holocaust film but it has a Hollywood sheen over it that keeps it from reaching the horrific levels of something like Son of Saul. Doesn't bring anything new to the genre.

Looking forward to upcoming screenings of 2001 and Blade Runner at the Alamo.

It makes good on the premise and the tone is on point. Have qualms but they are in spoiler territory. Worth seeing if you are interested in the premise/cast/etc.
