I highly recommend Thelma & Louise and The Martian, both awesome films. 

I've never actually seen American Gangster, maybe I should check it out.

Copy that, I'll probably watch The Martian too.

American Gangster doesn't add much to the genre, but what it does it does well.



I have periods of social disconnection, it's a part of me that I need and keenly embrace. I'll still log in and read news and threads during those times, but I won't be (very) active on the site, so I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause (late answers, bumps or the like).

Please, feel free to correct my English.

Around the Network

Can't really decide between Alien and Blade Runner but I give it to Alien just because not many achieved it to make a horror movie (with monsters/aliens) which is not only an all time classic but also considered as one of the best movies of all time. To achieve that is pretty good.

That Cameron achieved almost the same with "Aliens" is pretty decent as well



I'm going with Blade Runner, and I didn't even like this film much until recently, now I love it. I think I might have been seeing a bad version of it before, because I just didn't like Blade Runner. I watched it again after 2049 and loved it.

Alien was good, too. But Aliens, in my opinion, is a far more enjoyable film. But I'll have to watch the two back to back again, it's been a long time.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Honestly, while I loved 2049, I never liked the original Blade Runner much.

There's a lot to admire about it, like its set design, atmosphere, themes, and Hauer and Hannah's perfomances as the replicants.

The problem I felt was in the two lead characters. Decker and Rachael were just really flat to me and neither likeable nor interesting.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I totally understand where you're coming from in not liking it given how long I disliked it (literally decades).

I'm actually wondering what clicked inside me after decades that made me do a 180 on it. It might be a wrong version thing, but I'm pretty sure the version I saw is the same one I disliked before. My opinion is just different now. It could have been 2049.

A similar thing happened with me and Star Wars 77/Another Hope after watching Rogue One, I began to like the film a lot more than I did before. I was never much of a Star Wars fan outside of the 1990s PC gaming series (Tie Fighter, X-Wing, and Tie Fighter vs X-Wing).
