Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) It was a compelling enough action movie that I watched it in its entirety in one sitting. One scene which I found hard to comprehend is when The Bride (Uma Thurman) is lying in a coma and Elle Driver is close to killing her off with a lethal injection, she gets a last-second call from Bill to abort the mission. The katana sword battle between Bride and O-Ren Ishii (no relation to Tomohiro Ishii) was violent and action-packed.

You forgot about the cameo of The 5.6.7.8's

Conflict (1945) Richard Mason (Humphrey Bogart) is an engineer who's married to his wife Kathryn but Richard is in love with Kathryn's younger sister Evelyn. It's gnawing away at Richard's conscience, he denies it but the feelings are obvious. One night, Richard kills Kathryn to open the doors for a romance with Evelyn. It gives away the ending early in the film when Psychiatrist Dr. Hamilton (Sydney Greenstreet) was looking at Richard as Richard was talking to the police about his wife's whereabouts. The look on his face, it seemed as though he knew Richard was the culprit.

[Seemed abit confusing... but kinda made sense at the end. Let me know your opinion.]
Made complete sense. Decent story to choose

Reminded me of X-Men

- Jack Black lookin bloke
- isolation to hide special gifts
- training her to lie to pass as normal
- he was teaching his abnormal child to pass as normal in society
- each abnormal has a different power.
- using their power wears them out
- powers are destructive to normal society

Overprotective society is a fearful one

Henry manipulates time
Gramps invisible bloke
Mary rocket chick
Chloe is telepathic like Charles Xavier

Just finished watching "Primal" staring Nicholas Cage. It was okay.... But recently I've seen some pretty cheaply made movies from Cage. He used to be soo good like in National Treasure and Ghost rider. Now a days.... Cheap Movies. It's like he's desperate to make money so he'll take in whatever role he can find. But that's my opinion.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Normally I love Tarantino movies, but this one was horrible IMO. Moved super slow, a ton of driving scenes with no point to the story, and speaking of story, I still don't know what the point of the movie was. I thought is was going to chronicle the Charles Manson family murders from a Tarantino point of view, sadly I was mistaken.

The Corruptor (1999). Nicholaus Chen (Chow Yun-Fat) a cop for the 15th precinct has partnered with a new cop Daniel Wallace (Mark Wahlberg) who's white and a rookie. This doesn't sit well with Chen, who works Chinatown in NYC and there's a gang war between the up-and-coming Fukienese Dragons and the Tong, a gang which is the old guard. Chen is a highly decorated cop but his tips have come from Tong underboss Henry Lee, who tells him about the worst crimes such as a Malaysian pawn shop which is a front for heroin dealing which sells to kids. Wallace isn't the young, naive rookie he claims to be as he's undercover for Internal Affairs, who is building up a case against Chen for his chummy relationship with the Tong.

Daniel Wallace is just doing his job but Chen's partnership with the Tong keeps the peace on the streets. It makes the viewer understand why Chen is breaking the rules. It's better to have Tong as the lesser evil as opposed to their rivals The Fukienese Dragons. Tong engages in vices like gambling and prostitution but they aren't anywhere close to being as reckless as the Fukienese Dragons and their leader Benny Vu, who brutally shot a Tong soldier to death in broad daylight and blew up a restaurant which operated as a Tong front.

In the last 24 hours, I have watched these:

Knives Out. A brilliant comedy take on the classic murder mystery movie. I thought that it was advertised poorly, but when I finally watched it, I was floored. What an awesome film.

The Two Popes. I was shocked at how Anthony Hopkins became Benedict XVI. I mean, I know Hopkins is a brilliant actor but for many scenes in the movie, I thought I was actually watching the Pope Emeritus.

One Upon a Time.. in Hollywood. I was dubious about this before I watched it. Quentin Tarantino is often hit or miss with me. I loved Pulp Fiction and Death Proof. I found Jackie Brown and Kill Bill to be boring as hell. But this movie was awesome. I don't even like Brad Pitt, but I am going to spend this evening hoping he wins Best Supporting Actor for this movie. I give it a PERFECT score. I mean I enjoyed every minute, and the climactic scene was just not expected but awesome.

Knives Out is my second favourite movie of this year. So good. I genuinely hope they atleast give Ana De Armas that best actress in a musical/comedy award tonight. The God damn Donut. XD

Just for anyone wondering:
1. Fighting with My Family
2. Knives Out
3. Zombieland 2
4. Avengers Endgame
5. Joker

Changing Lanes (2002) Lawyer Gavin Bannick (Ben Affleck) has gotten into a car accident with Doyle Gipson (Samuel L. Jackson) on the FDR. Gavin hands him a blank check and leaves the scene of an accident. Bannick is in a rush to get to court because he has to explain to a judge his law firm Arnell & Delano has the Power of Appointment of William Dunne's $107 million trust fund for poor children for Arts and Music. Bannick pressured the ailing William, who was very old and feeble, to sign the document. Doyle is a recovering alcoholic who bought a house for his two sons to show his ex-wife he's a changed man.

When Gavin left the scene of an accident he forgot the orange file which contains the Power of Appointment. Doyle has it, but given the way Gavin treated him will he give Gavin his file back? There was never a dull moment in the thriller Changing Lanes, as there were ethical quandries which sprang up throughout the movie.

Jobs (2013) Ashton Kutcher is Steve Jobs, the creator of Apple Computer. It tracks his time from dropping out of Reed College to his start-up in his garage with a small group of nerds. A memorable scene is when Jobs recruits technician Rod Holt to create a heat efficient power supply for the Apple II which can't have a fan and can't overheat. Jobs is a perfectionist who verbally chewed his best engineer out in a meeting because he didn't care about the quality of the fonts for the LISA Computer. It tracks his battles with John Sculley, Pepsi CEO whom Jobs hired to market the LISA Computer, to Sculley backstabbing him and ousting Jobs from his own company. Jobs' battle with rival IBM and Bill Gates stealing his MacIntosh design is detailed. Jobs was a visionary who wanted to make the impossible possible. This is Kutcher's best role post-That 70's Show.
