I recently rewatched Battle Royale again. Great film, I really want to read the manga in the future.

Going through the original series of Planet of the Apes films... the first is by far the best but Beneath is a close second; Escape wasn't too shabby either. I'll watch the final two in due time.

I detest the final two. Yes, the first is by far the best.

And both films in the reboot are espectacular. Better than the original series, I believe.

Niiice. :)

I finally got back from seeing Guardians of the Galaxy (sorta shocked I haven't seen anyone really talking about it) but it was lots of fun, and there's some really genuine laughs in it. Good songs too. 8)

Never even knew this existed until today; which, if you know me, is extremely unlikely:

Yes, I didn't want to watch the trailer because it's the kind of film I'd like to see frash and without that much information (even though the improtant plot points are already known by everyone).

Neverthless, that's surely a must see. The director made Man on Wire, probably one of the best docummentaries in recent memory. Plus, it has an amazing indie cast. I'm particularly fond of Felicity Jones.

Spirit of Adventure - You see her in The Invisible Woman (2013)? Brilliant performance.

Managed to see American Sniper last Tuesday... damn, was it packed. Brilliant film, though.

Also recently saw Inherent Vice; very enjoyable. It's not for everyone, but my mind certainly was blown. Hoping for more Thomas Pynchon adaptations to come.

Earlier this month, I went to the theaters to see Night at the Museum 3. You guys just have to see it sometime it was soooooo funnyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!

I'm also still considering checking out Big Hero 6 sometime, but the only thing I know of about the movie so far is the Baymax character. :roll:

A Most Violent Year is officially on my must-see list. You don't win Best Film at the National Board of Review for nothing... looks like exceptional performances all around, happy to see Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain getting good reception.
