    Aye it’s not bad.

    @Jax Teller

    Essentially a couple are back from spending time abroad. They host a dinner party, one of the guests being the woman’s ex-husband. Things get a bit * up from there.

    It’s creepy.

    Just remembered It Follows in on Netflix aswell.

    Some people hate it but I think it's * unreal. Will become a horror classic as time goes on in my opinion.

    Left Behind - one of the worst films i've ever seen, watched it last night on Netflix.

    I thought it would just have been one of those * people trapped on a plane disaster films and thought * it i'll watch it since I couldn't find anything else. It's not that bad for like 30% then it takes a weird turn then you'd expect things to be cleared up or something else to happen but it never really does and seems like some sort of weird religious film by the end.

    Absolutley bizarre and you wonder why Nicholas Cage is even in it surely he's not dropped that far?

    It's probably worth watching just to see how bad it is.

    Just saw that Three Billboards...

    What a * film. Wasn't sure i'd like it but every single person in that film acts their bollocks off . Great from everyone in it. Funny, sweet and heartbreaking at the same time.

    Read something about Cage got * in his divorce and basically has to accept any role he's offered or he's * financially from the settlement.

    You been living under a rock?

    He's probably been in about 2 half decent films in 15 years.

    He's an enigma, is Nicolas Cage.

    Shown before that he is capable of some very good performances, and some of his films are genuinely good and entertaining. But * me is he in lots of absolute trash.

    I'l always have a soft spot for him, though. The Wicker Man is an abomination of a film but it's a * enjoyable one.

    Looking up on Cage it seems he's in financial trouble with everyone.

    Taxes, property, divorce settlements. Explain his career path for the last wee while.

    Just watched it cracking film. Unsettling and creepy in parts.

    Question though, what happened to the guest that left?

    Any more suggestions in the same vein?

    Not really the same kind of plot but The Gift is another good creepy film with a pretty similar tone.

    I preferred The Gift myself but both good, just remember thinking the Invitation felt a bit predictable when watching it.

    It Follows. 9/10.

    Might be my favourite horror film. Soundtrack is * immense.

    Just watched Blade Runner 2049.

    * incredible, visually unbelievable, probably could of been a little bit shorter but not really complaining. Going to have to watch Arrival now.

    Also Ana de Armas.. :35::35::35::35::35:
