Thread: What should I watch tomorrow?

  1. #1

    What should I watch tomorrow?

    Mrs wmw is out with the girls tomorrow night so I have the TV to myself and get to watch the kind of undemanding, pyrotechnic rich movie she can't stand.
    I have three choices, all of which I'm keen to see, but which should I watch?
    1) The Raid 2 - loved the first one, but at 150 mins I'm worried this might be a bit long.
    2) Pacific Rim - Giant robots vs monsters
    3) Godzilla (2014) - Godzilla, innit

    Any thoughts?

    Of those, Pacific Rim. If you've not seen it, consider getting ahold of a copy of Battleship.

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    Thank you. I've not seen Battleship so will look out for it.

    I have had 2 weeks of this while MrsO is away, I have watched ..

    John Wick
    Fury
    Taken 1/2/3
    Battle of the five armies
    Hercules...say it quietly I'm a bit ashamed
    Big Hero 6
    A walk among the tombstones

    edit..I forgot The Equalizer

    Tonight I am watching Kingsman.


    Pacific rim and Godzilla are about equal in my opinion. Not too terrible but of that genre.

    Can you get Edge of Tomorrow that was a good watch with lots of bullets and monsters

    I've read most of the Matthew Scudder novels by Lawrence Block and that one was extremely disturbing so I'm not sure I could handle the movie.

    The gory bits were under played, no actual visual nastiness really on screen but some disturbing distressing scenes without blood.

    I saw Big Hero 6 today with my son and absolutely loved it. Great family movie.

    Since you are going to be home alone, I suggest The Ring. Sleep well.

    I heard Lawrence Block gets a lot of his story ideas from actual police files. Whether that's true or not, I can't say, but the thought of it adds an extra layer of unpleasantness to some of his works.

    He's an excellent writer though.

    I love the Scudder books. I've read quite a few over the years and have recently started working through them in order. Block is a truly excellent writer, in my estimation.
