Quoted from Zack

The Last Jedi killed any potential interest I have in the series going forward. Same with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Ugh.  


Speaking of hot takes...

I actually liked The Last Jedi, The Rise of Skywalker and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I never understood all the hate.

And to answer your question:

I usually watch movies in a series/franchise in an order based on immediate availability to me, because I don't always make it to the theater. Sometimes I have to wait for DVD/Blu-ray, TV, On Demand, or streaming. The two paid streaming services I use (or have access to) are Netflix and HBO.

I would watch the unaltered original trilogy, followed by the Disney trilogy, then the spinoffs, then pretend the prequels and special editions don't exist.  

P.S. Other movies I liked (or remember liking) that I'm not "supposed" to:

Ghostbusters (2016)
Terminator: Genisys
Terminator: Dark Fate
Tammy (2015)
White House Down
The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2
Transcendence
Batman v Superman (I'm planning a rewatch; also the extended cut)
Suicide Squad

It was my favourite of 7-9, but I thought they were all terrible so maybe that doesn't count for much.

I also liked Dark Fate and White House Down.

I don't watch TV much, but recently I've checked out a bunch. I was very impressed with Years and Years, The Great, and Patriot.

I didn't HATE Dark Fate.. Just think Arnold shouldn't have been in the movie.

As for the new Star Wars trilogy, I actually really liked The Force Awakens.

Also really enjoyed Batman V Superman, but only the directors cut.

When it comes to Fallen Kingdom, I believe these guys pretty much nail it with their review.



It's a visually stunning film... But if you turn the volume up you realize that it is completely braindead. I don't understand how the script got greenlit.

Quoted from Zack


Not to mention, he lost poor Wilson... Wilson!  

It's one of the few films that actually makes me feel emotional.

Offing Wilson was kinda necessary, because they didnít want this guy re-entering society while emotionally attached to a piece of sports equipment.

The only reason Wilson was there at all was so that we had at least some dialog.


Feature-length scripts:
Who Wants to Be a Princess? (Family)
Glass House (Horror anthology)

Not ashamed to agree with most of the above.
- BvS Director's Cut made a world of difference from the theatrical release.
- The Suicide Squad Director's Cut was still crap and angers me to this day.
- Loved Rogue One and have watched it multiple times.
- Sylvester Stallone guilty pleasures: Driven and Get Carter.
- The Green Lantern was decent if you overlook the horrific CG

I don't see the infatuation many have with Dances with Aliens, I mean Avatar. A cheap knock off.

But... He bought another Wilson volleyball at the end.

It's impressive technically. And the idea that the short, pale alien invaders are human was kinda cute. The white-dude-becomes-savior-to-natives trope is decidedly less cute.

Any planned Avatar II has a problem. Avatar bodies are designed to be remote controlled. Though the next wave of humans might not be able to marionette him, they should at least be able to stop his heart and lungs from the comfort of an orbiting space ship. Someone else really ought to be the main character, but it'll probably still be Sully.

The Exorcist - undoubtedly the Maestro of Horror movies.
Candyman
Nightmare on Elm Street.

I got more though...

Candyman is super underrated! Good one!

And I obviously agree about The Exorcist. Absolutely horrifying!  

When it comes to Nightmare, I'm in the extreme minority that thinks Part 2 is the best/scariest in the franchise.

I've also got quite a few more horror films I love very much.

Candyman scared the crap out of me.

If we're talking old movies, these two (below) are a bit hammy, but terrific for Horror fans:

Sisters - Brian De Palma - billed as a psychological slasher really. But also really creepy. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070698/

Trilogy of Terror - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073820/

Loved -

The Descent
Eden Lake
Silence of the Lambs
Bone Tomahawk

Open to recommendations.
But, I've probably seen it...

You've got great taste in horror, Libby. Love all these movies.

Let me think about some recommendations...

Have you seen the french home-invasion flick "Inside"? It's absolutely fucking crazy. lol

Lord Of Illusions is one of my favorite horror movies, maybe my all time favorite as thatís not a genre where I have many favorites.

Also, Near Dark is my all time fav vampire flick. Bill Paxton is awesome in that!
