Puffy Treat's movie updates were always very interesting to me.

How is that confusing? Did I misremember the screen name?

Alright. I just can't be sure and a quick search yielded no results. Let's just change the topic... Any current movies you are interested in or would recommend?

Paddington 2. You really should watch one first because it's a treasure but number 2 is like a perfect pairing with the first.

Hotel Transylvania 3 is playing in the US. Don't know if it's playing in Europe yet.

Thanks for the input. [Smile]

I've not seen the Paddington movie, but I am familiar with the source material and other renditions. I might see it later, when it's on television.

Hotel Transylvania is already playing over here. But again, I have not seen the first two. So, I'm probably gonna skip this one as well. As far as animated movies go, I am much more interested to see The Incredibles 2.

Definitely going to see Antman and the Wasp. I recently have been catching up on some of MCU movies I did not see on the big screen, the first Antman movie was one of them. I liked it a lot.

I had fun posting them.

How random. I haven't visited these or any message boards in a while and find myself mentioned.

Serendipity.

Movie wise, my favorite film this year so far is ISLE OF DOGS, though I've heard good things about A QUIET PLACE. (INFINITY WAR was fun, but obviously just one part of a much larger story.)

PADDINGTON 2 would melt a heart of granite.

@PT: I found it very useful to have info about new and upcoming movies on this forum; I am pretty sure that because of it I have seen some films that I would not have known about otherwise.

I have enjoyed most of Wes Anderson's movies, so I'm definitely going to add Isle of Dogs to my collection. A Quiet Place seems like a good scary movie. I don't go for horror movies in general, but when they get really good reviews I usually end up seeing them.

I really enjoyed Isle of Dogs, but I felt like it was about 15% too long.

A Quiet Place was fantastic. Very suspenseful.

I finally saw The Usual Suspects for the first time this weekend. Of course, I knew about the twist already. But it was still an enjoyable movie.

I have yet to see a super hero movie I didnít like (at least a little). That said, nothing beats Superman, Man of Steel.

Welcome Sara.
While I feel the same about superhero movies in general (there's usually good action scenes at the least), there are some exceptions to the rule. I am thinking about movies like Elektra, Catwoman and to a lesser extent Daredevil. While some of the action scenes in those might be good, there a whole lot of other stuff that drags the movie as a whole down. Regarding Man of Steel, I felt that the destruction caused by the fight at the end was very jarring, considering all earlier Superman iterations I'd seen.
My personal favorite is probably Logan (though admittedly Wolverine has always been my favorite, so my opinion can be considered somewhat skewed in this instance).

I havenít seen Elektra, but I actually like catwoman (the one with Hallie Berry). It wasnít great, but it was fun at least. I know I saw Dare Devil, but I just canít remember it, so it must not have been great.

i liked Daredevil when i first saw it, but it is very different from the current show.

Why is Man of Steel your favorite? I'm not saying it was bad, just wondering is something in particular struck you

If the man of steel struck you, you should have him arrested. [Big Grin]

You might want to bring some Kryptonite to back that up.

I love Super Man because is the ultimate super hero. He is the super hero against which all other super heroes are measured. I love how he is always so much more about saving people than chasing down the bad guy. His only "moral flaw" is his willingness to risk all to save his lady love (which is the only significant flaw a super hero should have, imo). When you really think about it, he is the true original modern mythological man. He has all the best super powers and he's just a nice, honest, raised on a farm, kinda guy.


That said, I'm also totally in love with Dr. Strange because he is just, well, for lack of a better phrase - totally dreamy. :-P

Well, I do love Dr. Strange. I guess I just don't think of him as a classic super hero though.

I am more familiar with Superman than with Doctor Strange. Though I prefer Marvel over DC, when I was younger I had more exposure to Batman and Superman (because of the films and television series). In general I enjoy Batman more than Superman. I think Man of Steel was jarring to me because I knew Superman from the older movies and the Lois & Clark series, which are quite different in tone.
