Today watch ...Isle of Dogs (2018) Set in Japan, Isle of Dogs follows a boy's odyssey in search of his lost dog. Well one good thing about been out of Melbourne the movie tickets are under half price....thanks to the local knowledge @ermahgerd_erin so off to see Isle of dogs Honestly it was great but if you are not a fan of wes Anderson movies this won't change you as all his quirky stuff are there but for fans they are going go ape. Bryan Cranston is the stand out here, good to see he has not lost any of skills from his Japan voice over days (yes that was him in Macross plus). But this movie is just charming and has a lot of heart.... although it does get dark in places. But I was wonder what we missed since I don't speak Japanese.... But it good to see stop motion has died... it still a wonderful artform. #isleofdogs #wesanderson #stopmotion #bryancranston #billmurray #edwardnorton #jeffgoldblum #gretagerwig #scarlettjohansson #harveykeitel #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at Event Cinemas

Today's watch ...Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game. I said it when I watched it the cinema and will repeat it now Jack black is a great teenage girl. But everyone has great fun playing against type and play it for laughs expect Keven Hart who just playing Kevin Hart. Because they don't take it serious we got one of those hits that no one saw coming... Yeah some of the CGI is a bit hit and miss but remember they are in a mid 90s computer game so i guess it fits Anyway still one of the most fun movie so far this year and I loved it #jumanji #jumanjiwelcometothejungle #therock #dwaynejohnson #karengillan #jackblack #kevinhart #rhysdarby #viewinglounge #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today's watch ... Let Me In (2010) Owen is 12 years-old, his parents are no longer together and he has no friends. He's also being bullied at school and lives a dreary existence. Late one night he meets Abby, also 12, who has moved in next door. She doesn't say much about herself and doesn't go to school. Meanwhile, a detective is investigating a series of murders where people have been drained of their blood. Owen and Abby are lonely souls who find comfort in one another and Abby gives him the strength to face his tormentors. Abby has secrets as well that touch directly on the police investigation. Well it is rare, but it does happen, a case when the American remake lives up to the source material. With a creepy atmosphere, great acting especially from the young leads and some truly shocking moments it does exactly what it should, takes what made the orginal swedish film film great and translated it English speaking audience. The pool bit will stick in my head for a while and a great example of you don't need to show everything for a great horror scene #letmein #kodismitmcphee #chloegracemoretz #horror #horrormovie #vampire #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at Acland Street Village St Kilda

Today's watch .. Your Name (2016) A teenage boy living in Tokyo and a teenage girl living in the country experience a strange, random phenomenon. They occasionally switch bodies for a day at a time, and then can't remember what happened while they were switched. The boy eventually sets out to find the girl, but the situation may be even more peculiar than he imagined. Oh Shinkai san you come a long way since your first film you made on your home computer.... Anyway any fans of anime or Japan should have checked this out all ready, for those who haven't trust me the hype is well deserved... it just taken me a while to find it for a good price.... Has Maybe the most truthful example of what would happen if a teenage boy ever woke up in a womans body... But it is that charming romantic movie that fans will love and will convert a few people over as well... the twist in the middle was a great surprise... anyway I will stop raving... great date movie... even if you are alone on the couch.... #yourname #anime #madeinjapan #makotoshinkai #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today watch ...Miracle Mile (1988) A young man meets and falls in love with a young woman at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles. This area is known as Miracle Mile, and the whole movie takes place there. They make a date, which he misses, and while he is searching for her, he accidentally finds out that we (the United States) are about to start a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. He frantically searches for her so that they can escape Los Angles. This one is pretty forgotten but is well loved by everyone who has seen it, I was reminded about as it kept coming up on top 10 pre apocalyptic movies list but I never seen it. And it worth a little more love than it gets, it a frantic movie which unfolds in about real time once the phone call is recieved. And shows the panic of the people brilliantly. Although very much movie of it's cold war era time frame maybe it is becoming more relevant due to president Tweets a lot situation.... Part dark comedy, part love story it is something I do recommend anyone to watch first before buying, as it a not for everyone but it is a great story that I hope will never come true.... #miraclemile #anthonyedwards #marewinningham #80sfilm #arrowvideo #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at St Kilda Beach

Today's watch.... Sunshine (2007) 50 years into the future, the Sun begins to die, and Earth is dying as a result. A team of astronauts is sent to revive the Sun - but the mission fails. Seven years later, a new team is sent to finish the mission as mankind's last hope. Great movie with a dream cast and director, when it is on the sci fi disaster movie setting, it is great but the end when it goes into horror mode is so confusing and chaotic it just lost me a little. But great movie to watch here. You truly feel the cabin fever the crew has and the isolation they are in ... but if Kapa is the only person who can set off the bomb... why do you send him on the dangerous jobs???? #sunshine #sunshinemovie #dannyboyle #cillianmurphy #rosebyrne #chrisevans #cliffcurtis #michelleyeoh #scifi #scifimovie #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today watch... A Quiet Place (2018) A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound. Ok I wasn't going to see this but I chose the last movie so fair I let someone else have a go.... and I'm happy I did. Such a great little low budget horror movie and the whole sound thing was such a great twist on horror formula... Yeah a few little plot points could have been done better and a few to many jump scares but it would be just nitpicking as everything else so well done. #aquietplace #emilyblunt #johnkrasinski #horror #horrormovie #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #cinema #villagecinema #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at Village Cinemas

Happy Friday the 13th Today's watch ....Suspiria (1977) An American dancer, Suzy, is about to attend a prestigious ballet school in Germany. No sooner has she arrived, a student at the school is brutally murdered. Sinister deeds are afoot and Suzy starts to think that the school houses something evil. Now I'm not a huge fan Dario Argento work but I will admit, this is his masterpiece work, it is that good. Yeah you still get all his quirks (seriously, he must really hate windows), but the visuals and the soundtrack are just stunning, especially the use of colours. And for the horror guys the kills are pretty good to. It does help that Jessica Harper is a much stronger actress than his normal female leads and is on form here This 40th anniversary edition from @umbrellaentertainment is amazing. The clearest transfer I have ever seen, and the colours which play such a important part of the story just pop even on my cheap TV. The collection of extras are extensive as well. #suspiria #darioargento #jessicaharper #alidavalli #udokier #horror #horrormovie #umbrellaentertainment #70s #70smovies #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at St Kilda, Victoria

Today watch .. Rock 'n' Roll High School (1979) A group of rock-music-loving students, with the help of the Ramones, take over their school to combat its newly installed oppressive administration. It is short, fast paced, cheap, sometimes makes no sense and full of energy... so basically this movie is a Ramones song. I needed a fun movie for this week and boy does this one delivered. Unfortunately it will be the closest I will ever be to seeing the Ramones live with a great performance by the band.... but stick with your day job guys acting not for you. Full of in jokes and great late 70s music, check it out if you are a fan of Corman work or love the music.... just make sure all the mice in the house have hearing protection as I'm not cleaning up the mess. #rocknrollhighschool #theramones #musical #umbrellaentertainment #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at St Kilda Beach

Today watch ...The French Connection (1971) A pair of NYC cops in the Narcotics Bureau stumble onto a drug smuggling job with a French connection. Well the movie is great and when people say it has one best car chases in film, I totally agree, something about non cgi car chases that always get to me. Maybe it the fact that real people are in real danger. But it has maybe some of the best foot chases as well, with its cat and mouse race through New York streets... Basic the movie is a lot of great chases.... But it the ending that loses me a little here.... what happened with that gunshot... but still the rest of the movie is so brilliantly made you won't care. #thefrenchconnection #genehackman #royscheider #70smovies #70s #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like

Today watch ...Sisters (1972) aka Blood Sisters A journalist witnesses a brutal murder in a neighboring apartment, but the police do not believe that the crime took place. With the help of a private detective, she seeks out the truth. You better believe that I be putting a De Palma film in 70s week after Sunday post and this is a important one as it the first time he did a thriller (which he became famous for later) and basically went full Hitchcock as this one has shades of Rear window and Psycho in it. But a great little thriller from someone so early in his career and goes to show there is more to Margot Kidder than superman, she is brilliant here. One hell of a drugged out ending though.... boy what ever they where on in 1972, it was the good stuff. #sisters #bloodsisters #briandepalma #margotkidder #jennifersalt #williamfinley #thriller #horror #horrormovie #1970s #70smovies #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like #arrowvideo at St Kilda Beach

Today watch....Taxi Driver (1976) A mentally unstable veteran works as a nighttime taxi driver in New York City, where the perceived decadence and sleaze fuels his urge for violent action, while attempting to liberate a twelve-year-old prostitute. Welcome to 70s week... Oh boy I bet this would never make a welcome to New York tourist advertising... but it is a career defining moment in many actors resume. Something you have to see at least once as it been referenced so many time in TV and movies. But the movie was something I didn't like on first watch but as I get older I find myself understand it a little better. Although I do find the 12 year old hooker very unsettling. A great walk on as Lou Reed said "the wild side" of New York.

Today watch ... De Palma (2015) In the annals of Hollywood film since the artistic glories of the New Hollywood era, few have a better reputation and body of work in the field of suspense films exploring the contemporary darkness in American life than Brian De Palma. Here, the great film writer and director takes, us in his own words, through his professional life and a career that redefined film horror and suspense. All the while, he also confesses the challenges of working in Hollywood and the price even the great artists pay for being a part of it. Well this has been a long time coming as the movie was never released over here. Brian de Palma or creepy Uncle Brian as I call him, has always interested me as compared to the other movie brats like Spielberg or Kubrick as he is just not as well loved which is a shame as movies are always different and shows his influences on screen so well. De Palma comes over as a really nice guy, who is really open and honest about successes and failures and the issues he had in his life and 50 year of directing in film and it a great 2 hours of him talking. He has some great memories and stories to tell and he comes over really humble and gives his actors a lot of love. Yeah he done so great movies and so stinkers but you can tell he is a great journeyman of the craft and does what he enjoys. Anyway if you have any interest in de Palma check this out as great watch even if you don't like him check him out as you will come out with a greater understanding of the man. #depalma #briandepalma #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #dvd #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like #documentary

Today watch....Ready Player One (2018) When the creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. So a Movie nerd, A sci fi nerd and a game nerd and me walk Into a imax.... Are you waiting for a punch line... this is happening, so let the nerd fight begin... seriously I was expecting so many references I got the boys together and we all spotted different things on screen Seriously see this on the biggest screen you can as you will need it to see all the stuff in the background and boy I was so happy that I went to @imax.melbourne, my first imax movie and it was amazing. Yeah this movie was made for me, but it showed so much at at one time it was a little overwhelming but so enjoyable. But the bad it was maybe a dumber down a bit from the book but with the book you could stop and Google the references so I can understand why they did it. Anyway if it wasn't in the hands of a master like Spielberg I can see this going wrong so quickly but he knows his stuff and I walked out very happy. #readyplayerone #stevenspielberg #tyesheridan #oliviacooke #simonpegg #imax #imaxmelbourne #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #cinema #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at IMAX Melbourne

Hi guys Anyway I been asked to do another theme week of the decade of my birth which was the 1970s... yes I'm that old.... Now these are the not the best of the decade but some movies that are underrated, forgotten and I have in my collection. There is a couples of classic as well. So let's all grow our hair long, go unwashed and join the hippies for few movies from the 70s... #1970s #70smovies

Today watch ... Rush (2013) Set against the sexy, glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing in the 1970s, the film is based on the true story of a great sporting rivalry between handsome English playboy James Hunt (Hemsworth), and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Bruhl). The story follows their distinctly different personal styles on and off the track, their loves and the astonishing 1976 season in which both drivers were willing to risk everything to become world champion in a sport with no margin for error: if you make a mistake, you die. A while ago when I watched Senna, I said that it was the best documentary about formula one made, I still stand by that quote, but this is the best movie made about formula one made by far. Recommended by @suvi_rainy_day, it took me a while to track down but so happy I did. Just nails everything right from the personality of the two drivers to the speed of the cars. Enjoyed it when I saw it at the cinema and still great on the small screen. Even if you don't like the sport you have two great performances by the leads and for the ladies plenty of shirtless Chris hemsworth... almost the perfect date movie something for everyone Highly recommend #rush #chrishemsworth #danielbruhl #formula1 #f1 #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at Australian Grand Prix

Today watch .. A Perfect Day (2015) A group of aid workers work to resolve a crisis in an armed conflict zone. Oh boy ... getting a rope to get a body out of a well has never been so complicated... a part of war that doesn't really get any love in cinema finally gets a story to tell there side of the conflict... the aid workers. With a star studded cast this should have been great but unfortunately this story falls totally flat... one cast member comes over as a spoilt kid who hasn't got what she wanted and really annoyed me. But if you like movies like office space where it deals with stupid bureaucracy, you might have fun... just don't go in expecting a comedy as it is advertised but honestly I would skip this one #aperfectday #beniciodeltoro #timrobbins #olgakurylenko #melaniethierry #fedjastukan #todayswatch #movieoftheday #todaywatch #nowwatching #watchingnow #movie #movienut #moviecollector #moviecollection #movieaddict #movienerd #movieoftheday #movienight #bluray #bluraycollector #cinephile #picoftheday #picoftheday📷 #like4like at Luna Park Melbourne
