@Dan there's some horror flicks on here, albeit ones I've probably already mentioned to you. My cream of the crop, I guess.

 

@Taylor no guarantees on if you would personally like them, but if you're still interested in seeking out some movies in general I obviously love all these.

 

@Daenerys I would guess you'd have LLL higher up, but bear in mind that it's still in the top 1.5% of all movies I've ever seen sia2 

 

@Coca-Cola @Juinae @LittleDudeNT5 because why not

is A Quiet Place really that good? rih1 

I personally loved it, although in spite of the acclaim it's received I would still say I probably went into a bit more rhapsody about it than most others. But I found it to be an exceptionally well crafted horror movie, yea.

You seen anything good in general lately? I'm still going through director's filmographies like a madman, same thing I told you about with Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Spike Lee, etc. I'm on Clint Eastwood now, watched something like 15 of his in the past two weeks (although some of those are just starring roles, not directing).

Having missed it in theaters is one of my bigger movie related regrets tbh orangu1But I've seen it on Blu-ray a few times now and yea, love it!

 

Batman Returns has a very witty screenplay, especially for a superhero movie dead2 I die every time at the "And Bruce Wayne, why are you dressed up like Batman?" bit. And the Penguin's speech to his "troops" is another one of my favorite scenes:

Probably my favorite movie that I've ever seen in theatres tbh oprah14 

Is it really that good? I mean your movie watching history seems extensive. Is a 2018 movie really the best movie that you've seen in a theater or are u just stanning cos the experience is fresh in your memory? aretha1

 

Still haven't seen it, have to get to seeing it soon. aretha1
