I love Solaris, but I haven’t gotten around to seeing Stalker yet. Need to get on that.

Army of Darkness: The Medieval Deadit | The Terminator - Color Regrade | The Wrong Trousers - Audio Preservation
SONIC RACES THROUGH THE GREEN FIELDS.
THE SUN RACES THROUGH A BLUE SKY FILLED WITH WHITE CLOUDS.
THE WAYS OF HIS HEART ARE MUCH LIKE THE SUN. SONIC RUNS AND RESTS; THE SUN RISES AND SETS.
DON’T GIVE UP ON THE SUN. DON’T MAKE THE SUN LAUGH AT YOU.

I highly recommend Stalker. It’s truly an incredible film. I watched it early last year and to this day I think about it often. It’s truly left a permanent mark on me. I’d also recommend watching Zerkalo and Andrei Rublev if you haven’t seen them!

First Blood (1982) is a brilliant movie , all the rest of the movies in the series are cartoons .

Agreed, and I feel the same way about Rocky.

The final season of Game of Thrones generated a lot of backlash, but personally I had no issues with it. I remember reading that the last three seasons were going to be a general idea of how the story would unfold in the books rather than a direct adaptation.

To me, it is fanfiction. The first four seasons I’d rate an overall 8/10, but 7 and 8 would get a 6/10. So I, too, don’t hate it like many others. A bit disappointed, I guess, but I don’t feel the hatred many others felt, and this is coming from somebody who is a huge fan of the book series.

Honestly, what did everybody expect from these later seasons anyways? Most of the best parts from the show were lifted directly from the books. Did people really expect that once Dave and Dan ran out of source material that they’d come up with stuff as good as what George wrote? Get real.

Still, the last few seasons were MOSTLY pretty solid, but I’m still eagerly awaiting on George to deliver the REAL story.

Yeah. In fact I’m one of those fans of the series that have chosen to wait until the last two ASoIaF books are published to start reading the book series.

Did a quick page flip to skim for The Dark Knight in case it was already mentioned because it felt like a cliche to say it by now but TDK is massively overrated.*

EDIT: *adding the obvious to say Heath Ledger did a great job and that overrated doesn’t mean total ass

I find myself enjoying The Dark Knight Rises a lot more than TDK. In fact TDKR is my favourite of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
