Just watched The Divide. I thought it would've made a good prequel to The Road. The Road, if you haven't seen it, is a pretty depressing film with no real 'happy ending'. The Divide is pretty much that but with an 'ok ending'. So yeah, if you liked The Road, watch The Divide. Although both films are pretty meh imo.

davot he's good; i haven't seen some from your list but i think my favourite one i've seen him in so far was Owning Mahoney

jaz sure there were happy endings in The Divide! they become a form of currency later in the movie 8) but yeah it's a decent post-apocalyptic survival thinger (i don't think you could put micheal biehn into a movie of this general atmosphere and have it fail)

Michael Biehn and Lauren German were what made the movie imo. Also, Michael reminds me of Joel McHale, but older :mrgreen:

Does "Don't bother seeing Snow White & The Huntsman" count as a "Movie recommendation"... it's not terribad... and the visual effects are actually pretty impressive... but otherwise it's just not that good.

Counts as:
That's like your opinion man.jpg


Stick to recommendations not half hearted critiques barely capable of being considered a complete thought.

I'm not sure whether somebody mentioned this movie before but I've watched it recently and I had to share.

Warrior was fking amazing. It totally blew my mind. Its over 2 hours long and its absolutely worth the time. Now I had this film waiting to be watched for quite a while and the reason for this was that I watched The Fighter which was kind of hyped (won 2 oscars) and its not bad by all means but it wasnt anything special apart from Bale's great performance. If you haven't it yet I have to tell you that it gets better after the first hour, which is a bit slow. So I thought Warrior would be similar. I was very wrong.

Go. Watch it. Now.

Edit: DONT WATCH THE TRAILER. 1) ITS CRAP 2) IT HAS SPOILERS

i'll be the guinea pig for that one; starting it right now

edit:

started off pretty strong, nazis on the moon, but then within half an hour i was bored with it. they tried to mix a B-movie feel with blacksploitation and it became an unwatchable mess.

I would recommend Adaptation. Check out the trailer tho, its definitely not for everyone, it has genius writing.

I remember wanting to see this when the trailer was showing, but then forgetting about it, like most movie trailers.

pro tip: don't bother with prometheus, the acting is shallow, plot is weak, and the last 20 minutes feel like they've been added just to make it last 2hs, it just doesn't come close to any alien/predator/avp movie so far
