Is that on Netflix, too? It looks intriguing.

I liked Bird Box, though I did have to read the spoilers when it started to get too intense for me. (It's not something I enjoy—being on the edge of my seat for an entire movie.) I was curious if anyone had the read the book and if that offered more of an explanation for...things.

Isn’t Arrival the alien language movie?

I liked that one. A lot.

Since I've now seen three people talking about Bird Box I had to go watch it myself. What the actual... :shock:

It did leave me with a lot of questions.

I still haven't seen A Quiet Place (it just sounds unbearable for me), so Bird Box may also be more than I can stand. I partly need to know that the outcome was at least somewhat OK.

We finally figured out how to get Amazon Prime in high def, so we've started watching movies from there now.
"Alpha Gateway" was kind of interesting. And disturbing.

Huh. The Hellboy trailer doesn't look half bad for what it's supposed to be.

Another Hellboy movie? I am so behind. I wish I could take a month off and just watch movies.

My husband has expressed a similar inclination.

We saw Cold War this evening.
Trailer: https://youtu.be/BvPkDdFeTk8

Polish production, with English subtitles.

Set in Poland and USSR in the 1950's, focusing on the relationship between singer/performer Zula and pianist/composer Wictor.

Filmed in black and white with beautiful production values, gorgeous score, excellent performances. Script is tight and bleak and very evocative of the period. A really good film which angered me by a kind of nihilistic European-cold-war-noir attitude to love which made it apposite to pain. To me there was a Heathcliff and Kathy self-centredness to the central characters, revolving around a sadistic-flavoured commitment to each other while oblivious to the effect of their actions on others. I didn't like them, though they were compelling and charismatic.

A love story, but too nihilistic for me to accept it.

I recommend the film.
