We watched GHOSTBUSTERS AFTERLIFE last night. Itís excellent and everything I wanted out of a GB sequel. Well done, and just enough nostalgia blended with freshness to make it super enjoyable.

Attack the Block was a riotous good time. Didn't try to be more than what it was and stayed in its pocket/lane, and delivers. Movie has to have cult status, yeah? It has that vibe. The ending was pretty epic. The Star Wars dude is mad young in this. I did find myself turning on the closed captioning and then searching for the meaning of the south London street kid slang that dominated the dialog. They should have done a spin off called The Adventures of Probs and Mayhem. What do you think was in that super soaker? ewwwwww.

Get that snitch, get the strap.
Don't give a fuck, blat blat blat!

I did some searching, looks like Attack the Block 2 is in the works...ehhh, not sure it that is a good idea. A decade on from the original? And sequels never can capture lightning in a bottle again. I have low expectations for it, but I will certantly stay up on what comes together.

Didn't know they were doing a sequel. Agree with you about it though.

Instead, try to watch Cockneys Vs Zombies. Even more ridiculous and not quite as good or well budgeted but still silly.

I know who the killer is in the new SCREAM movie. I also know who dies.

I have not seen the movie, but I know the general gist.

I feel like my idea was WAY better than this...but my idea would have bookended the series as a closer...the way they did it means it can go on, so meh.

Still, I'm glad I looked this up as I won't watch it with expectations now.

MATRIX RESURRECTIONS is out on digital on Friday for $30.

I pre-ordered it, and we will be watching MATRIX REVOLUTIONS tomorrow to prepare ourselves for the new one.

Ladyhawk had never seen Con Air, we rectified that today, she enjoyed (how could one not? Classic Cage)

And Amph was right. I not only liked it. I liked it A LOT, and feel that itís a very grown up long sequel along the lines of Blade Runner 2049, that doesnít try to redo the past, but instead leaps forward and tells a new story and enhances the overall world.
