Interstellar is my favorite Nolan film ever actually. Loved re-watching it for the 3rd time last night! Can't wait for Nolan's next film.

I really enjoyed The Tribe. I even started a thread.

No one cared.

I did, just not enough to move fingers to keyboard about it. It's on my Lovefilm list but they keep sending me other stuff. The DVD must be in demand.

My problems with Interstellar are pretty easy ones:

1: Don't want to see "you only have to blow the bloody doors off" man in the film as it ruins my sense of believe in the believability of it.

2: Likewise for the "It's the guy from 3rd rock from the sun" but he vanishes pretty quick.

3: (and this is my main gripe) The fact that they pick someone who no-one in a million years would ever pick for any serious mission, totally unreliable, emotional, irrational, screwball of a guy to pilot this most important task.

I accept having realistic, logical, rational characters, as you would have in real life, would not make a exciting film, but just one of my personal hates, that such people would never be allowed 100 miles near anything like this in reality.

You cannot afford to place such screwed up, emotional people into any serious project EVER.

I agree, they should stay on internet forums where they belong.

I might be a bit slow on the uptake here (no surprise!) but I've only just sussed that Beasts Of No Nation will debut on Netflix on October 16th as part of a simultaneous theatrical and streaming release. However it appears that some cinema chains don't like this plan so will refuse to screen it...

Sounds like an interesting watch!

Out of interest, am I the only one that gets annoyed when you see films, and they place totally unrealistic people in roles within the story?

Some female with emotional problems, who's son was killed by a bomb in a war zone, yes, let's put her in charge of weapons.
The guy who flew in combat and saw his father killed and has constant flashbacks of the event, yes, that's the pilot we want.
And so it goes on.

I suppose it's done to make films interesting? But just annoys the buggery out of me.
I'd rather the film be about the story of the film and not all the emotional issues of the characters and how they constantly jeopardise every mission due to their problems from the past.

Not all films are like this I know, but more than enough seem to manage to wedge some character with deep issues into a role to screws things up.

Just watched "Edge of Tomorrow" this evening.
Really enjoyed it. Sci-fi Groundhog day, and kept the pace of the film up well over the entire time. No real time outs for flash backs and personal emotional issues of the characters.
Gets my thumbs up (probably been discussed here before I'm sure) but 1st I'd seen or heard of it.

Indeed yes, as "Platty" said.

Accept it's not THE most intelligent of movies, but if you like, Special effects, Ground Hog Day, Guns, and a bit of Scifi all mixed up at a good pace during the whole film, then I'd recommend it

As usual it came out on NF just after I bought the blue.

With Interstellar, didn't have a problem with the characters just the ending:

It reminded me of how I play computer games. Try this, fail. Try that, Fail. Try something else, move on.... repeat.

I quite enjoyed it.

Sorry to quote from the old Netflix thread, but was surprised to search for Enemy after watching it and find no dedicated thread for it.

It's on Sky Movies and via NowTV as well now, so maybe worth a mention again.

An absolute total head**** of a movie, but i did really enjoy it. First Villeneuve movie i've seen and i'll certainly not forget it for quite some time, especially that final scene!

I might try Prisoners next (i see it has a thread on here) not seen that either and his new one Sicario looks good as well.

Prisoners is ok, but way more run of the mill than Enemy. Worth a watch though.

Good, glad you did.

Are there any other movies that use this as the basis for the film?

We have Groundhog Day
Also. The Edge of Tomorrow
and there was 1 episode of Star Trek Next Gen which did the "repeating the same day" concept.

Any others?

St. Vincent is on Netflix France - just been recommended that film by a friend at work.

The Judge is on Netflix Scandi.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is on Netflix UK for the cheapskates.
