The Conjuring 2. It wasn’t as good as the first one, which I think is excellent, but it was still pretty damn good. That’s a nice little supernatural/are series they’ve got going on. I know that there are several spinoffs in the works too.

 

 Both Conjuring 1 and 2 scared the bejesus out of me!!  The Nun in the 2nd one is getting her own background movie.

Me too, I thought they were pretty awesome. Definitely some of the better horror movies  in years. I think the chemistry between the two main stars is very good  and it feels like the genuinely  care about the people they are trying to help.

 

I think I read somewhere that the Crooked Man is too. They are working on creating a little Conjuring universe.

 Yep, the Nun, Crooked Man and the Anabelle prequel make it 6 movies in the Conjuring universe. Hopefully, many more to follow. I will look forward to each and every new one coming out!

I don't get them either...that is not to say that I am against hard work but work/life balance is key.  If that cutie walked into my life and agreed to be my GF I would have told Fletcher to go and pound sand in a heartbeat and just stayed on at Shaffer while pursuing a normal course of studies.  It may of not worked out with Nicole in the end but to chase the dragon with Fletcher rather than let the relationship play out was an absolute fool's errand IMHO.

 

I agree that it was a good movie, just very tragic.

 

Off of the top of my head I can think of about five or so that I have worked with  and almost none of them seemed like happy people. One specifically seemed somewhat happy. She loved her job  and believed in the cause, but was a very stressed-out person and essentially a nun.

I remember when I was a kid thinking and actually saying out loud it would be awesome if someone were to make sequels about something that was going on in the background or in another part of the world at the same time. I didn't know about the word spinoff  and I don't think the word universe existed in terms of movies or television shows, but that's exactly what I was thinking.

 I just read this today for the first time, but apparently, M. Night Shalyman's Unbreakable and Split are from the same universe. This was revealed at the end of Split. The 3rd installment comes Jan 2, 2019 when Glass is released. 

 

 Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson will appear in all 3.

Lost City of Z, while I wouldn't say it's a bad movie, it's pretty forgettable. Every time I see Charlie Hunnam in anything I always picture Jax Teller, so it's kind of hard to view him in any other type of role.

 

Zactly, you see Jax every single time. I think it was one of the reasons why King Arther was such a huge flop. Lost City of Z was just barely ok. The only movie I ever liked Charlie in was Pacific Rim....and that was just about my love for Monsters more than anything he did. He might just have one of those careers where he does not come back from being Jax.....kinda like the kid in Leave it to Beaver, the public would just not accept him as anything else.

Oh yeah, you didn't know that? Did you not see Split? I'm definitely interested in this too, because it's a toned down/more real-world based version of comic book characters.

War for the Planet of the Apes. I really liked it. I thought it was a great conclusion to the trilogy. As much as I like the original movie, this series makes it look amateur. It’s really very good. Caesar’s character development is phenomenal and the evolution of secondary characters like Maurice and Rocket just adds so much more depth to this movie.

The Dark Tower.    The adaption of Stephen Kings Dark Tower series.   Probably was a little disappointed as I'm a big fan of the books.   The plot was based on the books, and all the elements in the movie were from the book.  But it was like mushing seven or so books into 90 minutes of film.  People who are not fans were probably lost on the plot line and references.  This is apparently going to set up a TV series, we'll see how that works out.

 I watched Split, but don't remember the Willis scene, must have left the room at a bad time.

And you didn't go back and watch it? I have to either pause  the movie if I leave the room or go back and watch what I missed.


Did you like it?  I thought it was good.

It's a sequel, not an adaptation of any of the books.

 It was one of those things that I knew I had to go back, was distracted from the get go. I saw probably 80% of it, and what I saw I really liked. I find with M.Night Shaly it is either real good, or real bad. The Villiage was a waste of time, the Lady in the Water was really stinky, but a lot of his other stuff is awesome.

from Wikipedia:


 

Quote

 

The Dark Tower is a 2017 American science fantasy western film[4] directed and co-written by Nikolaj Arcel. A continuation of Stephen King's novel series of the same name, the film stars Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, a gunslinger on a quest to protect the Dark Tower – a mythical structure which supports all realities – and Matthew McConaughey as his nemesis, Walter o'Dim, the Man in Black.[5]

Intended to launch a film and television franchise, the first installment combines elements from several novels in the eight-volume series, and takes place in both modern-day New York City and in Mid-World, Roland's Old West-style parallel universe. The film also serves as a canonical sequel to the novel series, which concludes with the revelation that Roland's quest is a cyclical time loop; the presence of the Horn of Eld, which Roland carries in the film, indicates that this is the next cycle.[6][7][8]

@fanaticV3.0   I guess it all depends on who's reviews and interpretation you read on this.  I never saw the project as a sequel, and even some of Kings comments made is sound not to be.    He had an interview where he talked about a sequel to the movie, after a possible start of a TV series, that would carry on more on line with the books.  Which makes me think he wanted it to be more of an adaption than a sequel.     It may be how they are trying to sell it to appease the fans of the book.   

 

Either way, I'm not sure it worked well, and I doubt after reading reviews that its going to move forward on either media.

        I liked The Taming of the Shrew anyway, so this one was alright as well. Like you, I wouldn't have chosen it to watch on my own, but it better than others I've watched.

        LOL  Don't tell anyone, but I actually don't mind this one.  I mean, it's not something I'd cue up on my own, but I'll watch it when someone in the house has it on.   Now, excuse me, but I have to go get a testosterone shot.

        took my kids to see it last week.  It was a good movie....we all had a good laugh and there is enough adult humor to keep the adults interested. (the sausage factory scene with part of the Grease soundtrack kept me laughing for a good bit!)   We saw Finding Dory several weeks ago.....yup it was good also..enjoy!

      My girlfriend has this horrible thing called Shocktober....it is a non stop diet of B horror flicks for the entire month of October....it is beyond painful....BUT, it is what she loves, so I watch them with her....I should be nominated for sainthood putting up with this crap....LOL! Not only are they B movies, they are from the 70's and 80's so you don't even get special effects, unless you count clay being molded to resemble parts of the human anatomy. I must have sat through 50 of these things last month, another reason why November is one of my favourite months....just because October has ended!!
