I've heard Ready Player One is excellent (though bears only a passing resemblance to the book) and should be seen in 3D

Took in "Ready Player One" last week and found it to be enjoyable fare. I felt it drag a bit in the middle but it redeemed itself qite well in the second half.

The article on "A Quiet Place" has my curiosity piqued, that was on our short list last week but my date wasnt a fan of scary movies so we gae it a by.

I'm hyped for "Infinity Wars" when I get out of camp net week.

The Day After. The highest viewership for a made for TV movie-ever. I would like to see a modern re-do of this movie.

“A Quiet Place”

Both nipples fully erect on the fluff-o-meter.

I’m not a fan of the horror genre, and it’s not really fair to lump this one into that class. It would probably be more accurate to call it a sci-fI suspense flick but even that could be misleading. In any event it’s very well crafted and unless you are a complete fraidy-cat it will hold your attention from start to finish. The Cinderella story of the year, it was put together on a $17 million dollar budget and has since grossed almost $350 million. Well worth a watch.

I sure hope to be able to go see this.
"They Shall Not Grow Old"
Actual WW1 footage, masterfully lip synced and colourized.

Chances are slim to get out without tears, heard one review as
the best film ever to be on screen.

I see it's now on Netflix.
Will give the Fluff-O-Meter recommendation a try. :up:

Recently saw "Mortal Engines" and thought it was a pretty good movie. Not deep or hugely compelling, but an enjoyable experience.

I have to add to the kudos for Bohemian Rhapsody - I cried. :cry:
