The director doing Thor 3 has a couple of must-watch movies under his belt: Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) and Boy (2010).

Also What We Do in the Shadows, a vampire documentary.

I don't know if this is technically a movie or TV but via Crave TV I was able to watch the 5 part ESPN documentary about OJ Simpson. It's really, really good. I was only 12 when the trial was going on so I didn't entirely grasp it at the time and the look back was pretty great.

Incredibly it sort of leaves you without any real doubt that he did it while at the same time understanding completely why he wasn't convicted.

It was amazing, I viewed it as one big documentary spliced into five parts. I was in the same boat as you regarding being younger at the time and I remember the trial, but not a lot of the cultural things that had been going on in LA at that time.

Just finished watching it. Really good indeed. There's no doubt he's guilty.

I'll admit, I felt strange about the sentencing for his armed robbery convictions. It was very clearly unjust sentencing for the crime, but on the other hand, the bastard deserved something for what he's done.

I feel so badly for the Brown and Goldman family's. They got caught up in a racial issue and were denied justice partially because of it. Johnny Cochran was despicable.

I saw Arrival yesterday. It was quite a (hopeful) mind bender. Very well done.

Its on the top of my list but have traveled to AZ again. Looks like it is a mindful film. Last one I saw was Hacksaw Ridge, right before Remeberance Day, what those men (and women) went through is beyond belief.

Herman, I agree, just saw it a few days back and I am still trying to sort it all out. the synopsis at Wikipedia helped a great deal, but there is so much going on in that film that I want to see it again and soon.

I enjoyed the heck out of that.

I saw Suicide Squad finally and now I must live with that regret for the rest of my life. The books are waaaaay better.

Even though he has a film in Oscar contention and another in production, “Blade Runner: 2049” director Denis Villeneuve looks ready to jump into another classic fixture in the sci-fi world.

Sources tell Variety that Villeneuve is in early talks to direct Legendary’s “Dune” reboot for the company.

Dune is a hard movie to tackle.  If you have not read the Dune Series, I can highly recommend them.  I have probably re-read the series 3 times (and I never re-read anything).  Strange that a highly evolved alien universe can explain a lot of the madness in todays world.

Arrival was terrible. Thankfully I didn't pay to see it.

Rogue One was great.

I thought both Arrival and Rogue One were excellent movies.

I haven't seen Rogue One yet - I have booked to see it on the 27th, but it wouldn't let me book the film again for an earlier showing :( I've had to avoid spoilers. I've heard good things.
