    Last Days in Vietnam (2014)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3279124/

    A very sad and moving documentary.

    It angers me how we just abandoned so many people who were then rounded up by the Communists and sent to re-education camps where many of them, by the 10 of 1000, died of diseases and starvation.

    The U.S.A. should never had gotten involved in the Vietnam War if it was never going to commit fully to get the job done right.

    5/5

    Thumbs up

    Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1392190/

    There is a scene at the beginning of the film that will make you forget Mel is no longer Max and to good effect.

    Hardy portrays Max with a new furor and with very few spoken words - even less words than Mel ever spoken in any of his Mad Max films.

    Hardy has finally found his calling as an actor.

    Theron surprises you as the post apocalyptic woman who has to protect herself and her few sisters from the men around her who are now more violent preying animals than human.

    This movie is an almost non-stop 2 hour adrenaline rush with real world stunts:

    not the CGI infused stunts we've seen in many recent car chase movies like The Fast and Furious series and Need For Speed and the Transporter franchise.

    By the time this film draws its final frame, you had wished there was another 2 hour of it because it went so fast and so furiously exhilaratingly breathless, you will not once throughout the viewing it had even stop to look at your watch.

    George Miller made us wait for a sequel to Thunderdome and it kept getting postponed year after year after year and before we knew it, 30 years went by and I must say, it was worth the wait.

    Bring on the sequel and hope it will be as good or even better than Fury Road.

    I don't give too many films a 10 but Mad Max Fury Road gets a 10 from me and well deservingly too.

    10/10

    Furious Seven (2015)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2820852/

    Horribly absurd action sequences where the main characters should had been dead.

    What made the action sequences worse was the very poor CGI.

    $190 million budget and they couldn't hire a better special effects company?

    I hope this is the last one!

    With Walker gone, there shouldn't be any reason to make any more!

    1/5

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but i agree 100% with j7wild's review of 'Max Mad Fury Road'. There was not one dull moment in this movie. And I add that the soundtrack was amazing. This is what happens when you give a composer a long time to develop the music for a movie. Nowadays composers have such a short amount of time to come up with music for a movie that it tends to become generic and uninspired. Not so with Fury Road....they gave the composer plenty of time to tweak and change the music. A well deserved 10/10 for this movie.

    Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2802144

    Why the poor ratings and bad reviews?

    What was wrong with it?

    4/5

    CHAPPiE (2015)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1823672/

    Not as good as District 9 and worse than Elysium.

    I am sorry, Neill Blomkamp, but I can only give this film a 5/10.

    Hopefully your next film, Alien 5, will be better!

    The Organization (1971)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067535/

    Sydney Poitier reprises the role of Virgil Tibbs that brought him fame in In The Heat Of The Night.

    This time he is a San Francisco Police Lieutenant fighting a Mafia Organization.

    There are many young actors in this film that later became famous.

    Raul Julia, Daniel J. Travanti (Hill Street Blues) and Ron Paul (who played the U.S. Navy Commander of the U.S.S. Nimitz in The Final Countdown and later in 1984, he played the Cuban Colonel in Red Dawn)

    4/5

    Survivor (2015)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3247714/

    I guess once you have become James Bond, your career after that is nothing but crap movies but a guy got to eat and pay the rent, right?

    Totally cliched by the number predictable should be direct to video movie.

    I didn't know it was coming back to the big screen for the 40th anniversary.

    I wish I'd known.

    I have only seen it on the big screen once and that was in 1975.

    No Dolby and Digital back in those days.

    You have another chance. It is part of the Fathom events calendar and showed at 2 & 7pm. It is listed to show again on June 24 (Wednesday) at 2 & 7pm. If you check your local theaters websites ,they should have it listed (mine did). One place out here only has it listed at 7pm while the other is at 2 & 7pm. You can also try going thru here...http://www.fathomevents.com/event/jaws-second-showing

    Oh Dang!

    I missed Goldfinger.

    http://www.cinemark.com/cinemark-classic-series

    I have never seen that on the big screen.

    I wasn't even born when it came out and then later when I got older and Dad took us to see the James Bond films as they came out or as they were re-released to second run theaters in Italy, starting in about 1970.

    We later went back and caught the early ones on VHS.

    I think the first James Bond film I'd ever saw was Thunderball at a 2nd run theater in Rome in 1970 and then after that we saw Diamonds Are Forever when it was new. I still remember the Italian title to it: A Cascata di Diamandi.
