    Frequency is now a series on Netflix. Like Westworld its darker than the original so loses a bit of its charm but still worth a look

    Saw Passengers yesterday. Loved it. A little bit predictable, and the ending could have been tweaked a bit, but it was very entertaining.

    Watched Inglorious Basterds again yesterday.
    That opening chapter has got to be one of the most suspenseful parts of any movie.

    Perfect casting and a great plot.

    is there much coming up this year to keep an eye out on? I feel like 2016 was a bit of a nothing year for movies but I haven't had my finger on the pulse to be honest.

    if not, how would you describe the movie you wish was coming out?

    Agree ...seems to be fewer great movies each year .....American movies becoming very formulaic

    2016 current good ones .....

    2107 Movies I'm looking forward to American:

    I'm a bit skeptical of Ghost in the Shell, the original is pretty good though but all over too quickly.

    The Three-body Problem sounds interesting, I know the book.

    Train spotting 2
    Blade Runner 2

    Sequels to two of the greatest movies of all time.
    My fear is that they will be pale reflections of the originals.

    Agree, Senna was a good watch.

    Just watched Eddie the Eagle & brought back memories from my childhood.

    Didn't realise he 1st jumped the 90m jump at the Olympics... unless they made that bit up.

    Great story about realising your dreams & not giving up... particularly for a kid with dodgy knees growing up.

    Come on people, there is only one option for the best sports movie and that's Semi Pro.

    Would have thought Clooney would have been in more decent movies than Wahlberg.

    Have you named your worst in reverse order, because Segal & Van Damme imo up there as worst.

    Would have the likes of De Niro, Nicolson, Pacino, Eastwood, Hopkins, Depp, Downey Jnr all ahead of Damon.

    Sometimes it's the movies that each of us like / dislike ......i just haven't warmed to Clooney as an actor or his movies ......still haven't and won't watch his Oceans films

    Conversely i've liked most movies Wahlberg is in .......although these things can change as actors start to get desperate for money (Robert De Niro)

    Reason for Segal and VD is more that these guys have been has beens for 10 years

    Also, Argo should keep Affleck out of the worst 5 actors.

    The likes of Stalone, Cage, Brand & Kutcher stiff to miss your top-5 worst list.

    If Afflek has a redeeming movie, it's probably "Gone Girl" ......Argo wasn't my cup pf tea, nor was "The Town" .......he's just a bad cardboard actor

    Argo was well & won a stack of awards.

    Gone girl was a good movie too.

    Both of these alone are why there is no logical reason he could be in a bottom 5.

    I like some of Cages movies ......but he's like De Niro and Michael Cain, in that he started making movies just for the money ....not whether they were any good

    Cage owed a lot of money to the tax dept

    Stalone's Rocky movies keeps him off the list IMO

    Is Brand an actor ?:p ......and Kutcher is ok as long as he's in a comedy

    Sure he has had some flops, but if you rate the likes of Ashton Kutcher ahead of him, I just don't know what to say...
