I know that Rocky 1 and 2 were solid films. I tried to watch them again recently, but I don't know if it was pacing or what, but I just can't watch them anymore. I think that I only like 3,4, and 5 due to how much they represented their time. Not that the first two didn't, but I really remember the 80's and how much fun they could be

Solid list. I agree with the ones that I've watched. I need to get around to watching Fury Road. And on the basis of the six that you've listed that I have watched, I'll need to check out the five. Extra points for Killer Joe. Such a hidden gem, and those last fifteen minutes alone could get anyone to sit through it if it isn't their thing

Most overrated movies of 2010-2019: The Arrival, Any Star Wars, Mad Max, Gravity, Manchester at the Sea.

I must of missed something about Killer Joe, I just looked back at my IMDB score and gave it a 5. I like strange movies, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Dr. are two favorites, but I thought McConaughey was trying to do his best Dennis Hopper impersonation. I rather see the real thing. I have to admit Juno and Gina Gershon were easy on the eyes and ever since Sideways, Thomas Hayden Church has been a favorite of mine.

The director William Friedkin has made some great movies and some weird ones. Who can forget Al Pacino in Cruising. Recent films like Bug was good and it gave Michael Shannon a break, and Jade was very good and I guess helped launch David Caruso. In the 80's To Live in Die in LA is a classic, French Connection and The Exorcist are the cream of the crop. I think he made Killer Joe as a satire, a joke on us.

I think that I liked it because it was different. Different doesn't always mean good. I'd argue that either WF maybe was a little lazy on this project, or went the other way, and tried too hard as a defense

Looking back at this list I forgot to mention Dunkirk. Definitely needs to be up there on my list, even Quentin Tarantino mentions it on his top 10 movies of the 2010ís. Decent little watch if youíre interested:

The Arrival didn't grab me either, but the story that it is based on is one of the best sci-fi short stories I've ever read.

After American Hustle, I can watch Amy Adams in anything she does. I thought Arrival was the deepest in thought sci-fi I've ever seen. They went beyond just showing aliens, making contact, space ships, we had the future and the past all at once. I saw it at the theater and now a couple of times on HBO.

The Finest Hours



I first saw Chris Pine in the Star Trek reboot.

Then this movie.

And then in Wonder Woman, and then again in Hell Or High Water.

The man can act.

Ooh!! Good one!! Lots of fun.

The series is pretty fun in it's own right, better in some ways because it has time to expand the universe.
