    Zero chance of me picking just one. Zero chance.

    I could name 20 I couldn't live without. Then 20 more I wouldn't want to live without. Then 20 more, etc. :lol:

    Commuter 6.5/8

    This movie was good. Really good in 4DX.

    Impossible to sleep in a 4DX flick. I'm about to watch all action movies in this format. Been a while since I have but this go around seats were getting hot, random spurts of water, etc. Gave a good you're actually in the train feeling.

    While the setting and execution of investigation bends the susoension of disbelief the plot is good and ties thing together nicely.

    The one problem being when you see a notable actor you know they're gonna play a larger role even if they initially seem inconsequential

    I will say it was laughable that one black guy seems to be a hapless hitman and the other becomes the black hero sacrifice (just to come full circle with a joke line).

    Gotta say I'm happy I didnt at least waste a trip given I didn't get to see what I intended to.

    got through most of the florida project but i had to leave work and get my son. does something shocking happen like in sling blade? or is it pretty much just a snapshot into their life? don’t even feel like finishing it. the music was horrible for me cause i hate most modern rap/ mumble rap.

    Three Billboards

    Good flick. Not best picture worthy IMO but still very good. Frances McDormand definitely best actress worthy though. She killed it 22 years after she killed Fargo.

    Some funny appearances from lesser known actors.
    O-Dog :nthat:
    Napoleon Dynamite's grandma :lol:

    I don't watch it. Probably why I was surprised to see her in 3 Billboard. Only thing I've ever seen her in was 3 Billboards.

    Starz announced Friday at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour that it was developing The Continental, an ongoing drama series based on the John Wick film franchise starring Keanu Reeves. Reeves, Starz execs said, is expected to make an appearance in the potential series but will not star.

    The potential TV series is set in the John Wick universe and focuses on the inner workings of the exclusive Continental Hotel, which serves as a refuge for assassins.

    "This series is truly unlike anything else on TV,” Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said. “The Continental promises to include the thunderous fight sequences and intensely staged shootouts between professional assassins and their targets that fans have come to expect in the John Wick movie franchise as well as introduce some new, darkly compelling characters who inhabit this underground world.”

    Yeah I'm all in. A show about the hotel and the various assassins that come thru would be a dope show. Endless possibilities.

    :lol: I got a look at the chairs before I left. They have 2 holes on the sides that shoot air where your head will be right inbtween.

    A tube at the top and one by your feet pointing upwards. Its not liquid water but more like a quick burst of mist :lol: Guaranteed to keep you alert.

    There is an option by the armchair to turn water off though.

    But I gotta say its ingenious cuz they specifically use the water during a scene where a character gets sprayed in the face :lol:

    I, tonya was great. I loved it! Great music, good comedy and dope story.

    I really didn’t hear crap about it. I just open fandago or Flixster and see what’s good. Read the synopsis. I ene in blind. Not knowing crap.

    Harley Quinn and Winter soldier killed their roles.
    The mom was great to.
    Highly recommend
