Grand Budapest Hotel (on recommendation from a friend) - finally turned if off after about 45 mins. Thought is was dreadful
I have thought about watching this movie numerous times due to the supposed excellent reviews. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. On principal it just looks like a stupid move IMO. Thanks for the feedback...I will continue to steer clear.

We watched Whiplash last night and really enjoyed it. If you haven't seen it I highly recommend giving it a spin.
looking forward to this. JK Simmons is great all the time. Plus, movies with drums, boom!!!! (Yes biased drummer)

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

For date night last night, we watched The Best of Me. This one was nearly universally panned by critics. We kind of enjoyed it. Turns out you don't have to resort to raunchy, crude humor to make a decent rom-com. If you watch it, note that some versions may have just the theatrical ending and others might also have the "Tears of Joy" ending. They are substantially different starting about 15-20 minutes before the end of the show. We preferred the latter.

Yes that was indeed a great film. Wife and I saw the theatrical and Tears of Joy version. Really like the Tears of Joy better.

Have you seen any other Wes Anderson movies? He has a very distinct signature style that people either love or hate. If you like his other movies then you will probably really enjoy Grand Budapest Hotel. If you have not seen his other movies proceed with caution.

Personally I really enjoy his stuff and thought Grand Budapest was one of his better movies. They really are a lot of fun if you can get into it.

I thought The Grand Budapest Hotel was a little quirky, but an entertaining movie. A good story with interesting characters. Definitely a good rental.
