We watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes last night and enjoyed it very much. Both the story and the audiovisual presentation were top notch IMO. Looking forward to the next installment and hoping it won't be over three years this time!

Watched 13 Sins and thought it was ok. Nothing spectacular and very similar to Saw without the quality of acting. While watching the previews I was intrigued by Blue Ruin. Has anyone watched it? Reviews seem very positive on it.

I've been in total ape nerd mode for about a month. I watched tons of "extras", and went nerd. It really makes me want to be part of the process of making a film. Very well done, and inspiring in a surprising way. Next one looks like 2016.

haven't seen either, but the Saw series had me goin back every Halloween. I love the packaging (it's mostly transparent with some minimal graphics). SO many crazy scenes, but for some reason the first thing in my mind when someone says Saw, is falling into the pit full of syringes!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh......

The Saw series is one of my favorites. Aside from the crazy scenes it was actually a well written story.

Agreed. When I first got into them, I didn't think there'd be much longevity. It's like a shorter more intense season of criminal minds, or csi.

Watched 21 jumpstreet and American Trip

Both were hilarious

Jonah Hill is a hell of a funny dude

We caught 21 jumpstreet on dish the other night. Hilarious! I love Jonah Hill, and much to my surprise, my wife was laughing like a maniac. Good stuff.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Watched The Equalizer, was very disappointed in this movie. Had very little resemblance to the TV series and turned it off half way through because it was so bad. Very surprising for a movie with Denzel Washington.

Wow, really? I'm not sure how closely they were trying to mimic the original but I thought it was great!
