Yes. Watched the first two way back when. Didn't like the second one but heard the 3rd was good. Now I plan to give it another shot.
THE Cube, first and ever, what a movie!
So, just guessing, you'd be a "Alien/Alien 3" person?
I like the whole Quadrilogy. A3 is one that gets better with age. I also think the Runner is the coolest beast next to the original Xeno.
Wasn't sure if you meant which Alien movie we were watching or just scifi in general. Sorry to steer OT if I did.
Movies in general. You are what you watch in terms of movies - or so some would say so...
ScorpioStar Not really movies and definitely not scifi but also watching a lot of animal kingdom documentaries, especially ones by the BBC. Outstanding footage and narration.
Documentaries... I work with spotting/timing for subtitles, and I just saw (worked with) KANGAROO - still crying for those poor guys :(
Documentaries change your mind.
ScorpioStar There is a series that spends the last part of each episode showing how the crew sets up shots and camps out for weeks- respect all the work that goes into those shows! I will have to look up Kangaroo. Is it tied in with a series or is that what the series is called? I will check Netflix.
IRaptus If all goes well, I will check out Cube 0 tonight.
As for the documentary I talked about:
Looks like it might be a while until it streams. Looks like an interesting documentary.
What movies have I been watching lately? Hmm lemme remember, besides sci-fi, I've been watching all kinds of films, here are some:
- Enemy (2013) One of my favourite films, also one of the most confusing films I've ever seen, when credits started rolling, I just sat in silence and stared at the screen for like 2-3 minutes. After rewatching it many times I finally understand what the film is actually about.
- Hunger (2009) dark and depressive, but really well-made film, Steve McQueen's first theatrical film.
- Waltz with Bashir (2008) animated war documentary film, one of my favourite films.
- Mary and Max (2009) my favourite animated film, really emotional, not really for kids.
- Lion (2016) I already knew the story this film was based on, but when I heard there was a film based on it in production I couldn't wait to see it. Wasn't disappointed.
I would also like to add Babel (2006), really emotional and intense film.
"Human heaven? Goodness, humans don't go to heaven.
Someone just made that up to prevent you from all going nuts."

dk Cube:0 is not as good as the original but its still a great film and adds a new layer to the story (the button-pushers) but still keeps the ambiguity of the Cubes purpose and function. Hypercube was a cool concept but a shit film.
ScorpioStar Interesting, I'll check out the documentary too. I have a first hand perspective from both the conservation, and the farmer side on this topic.....
Dark Nebula I have not seen any of those films, but I'll definitely check them out!!
Recently I re-watched the Mad Max films, Sunshine & Event Horizon (Classics)
I forgot to add a TOHO movie I stumbled on: Gantz 0. An animated film that is kind of WTF at first but gets really good. Animation and acting is pretty impressive. Here is a taste. The movie is in English but not the trailer lol!
dk I saw Gantz on Netflix and was curious about it. Worth a watch you say?
IRaptus Gantz 0. It is worth a watch imo. The trailer actually is cheesy to what the movie actually is. I was watching a Godzilla marathon and it popped up as a recommendation. My wife clicked on it and away we went. I had no preconceived notions. It apparently has a history but we just jumped in. I liked it. I saw it on Netflix too. Kind of quirky in some ways but I think it is because I don't know the history of Gantz.
dk Awesome! I'll check it out tonight. Its sometimes fun going into a film totally blind with no expectations, preconceived ideas or even an idea what the film is about, beyond a positive recommendation :)
IRaptus I had fun. This reviewer pretty much summed up my thoughts:
Seems she was sufing Netflix like us lol!
rewatched blade runner in time for blade runner 2049, rewatched all the alien movies.( even sat through avp2) watched saw for the first time, rewatched 2001 a space oddesy, the dark night , inception and predator. watched godfather and godfather 2 again, just random stuff. planning on doing a david fincher marathon
food ain't that bad! - Parker
Timmy the ultramorph Impressive. What is the the time span? I never saw SAW. Did you see the 2001 sequel? I have the DVD but never watched it.
There is a new Saw film now too i think? Jigsaw?? I liked the first few films but lost interest after about 3 or 4.
Is this an "Origins" film?
I just watched Fincher's "Seven" and Nolan's "Interestellar" for the thousand time :)
But, as I said, I work with subtitles so I watch loads of movies and some of them I really enjoy working with, like Tim Burton's "Batman" (1989), "The Box" (2009), and some of the most recent releases like "IT", "Columbus", "Shot Caller", "The Glass Castle", and I had loads of fun with "The Hitman's Bodyguard."
But I am anxious to find time to see the new "Twin Peaks", for I worked with the first episode and haven't had the opportunity to see the rest yet. And, of course, revisit the 1990 original series.
@Timmy the Ultramorph - WOW! Great choices :)
@IRaptus, yep, the documentary really foccus on the animals' versus famers' problem.
@Dark Nebula, I didn't watch any of them, but I heard "Hunger" is quite impressive, although, as you said, it's dark and oppressive.
Cube Zero is pretty solid imo. Do yourselves a favor and check out Cube and Cube Zero. Just sayin'.
Great and exciting topic ScorpioStar! The Box is a special movie, no doubt.
Before watching Twin Peaks season 3, you should rewatch the Twin Peaks movie 'Fire Walk with Me'. Season 3 changes everything and takes us to the next level. Lynch mentioned that season 4 might become reality...
Let me recommend the three seasons of The Fall (2013-2016).
It is one of the best shows I've ever seen. Exciting story, brilliant acting (Gillian Anderson, Jamie Dornan). The story arc met its conclusion in the third season in 2016, but it is very probable that we will see Gillian Anderson again in new seasons.
ScorpioStar - My pleasure.
How to Get Away with Murder (2014-...)
'A group of ambitious law students and their brilliant criminal defense professor become involved in a twisted murder plot that promises to change the course of their lives.'
The second season is awesome! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-2Zb7mVRNs
I follow Star Trek Discovery, but I think The Orville (2017-...) is a much better science-fiction series.
Absentia (2017-...) starring Stana Katic
'After being declared dead in absentia, an FBI agent must reclaim her family, identity and innocence when she finds herself the prime suspect in a string of murders.'
Bye Bye Jupiter (1984)
'While extracting water from the Martian polar ice caps, ancient carvings are uncovered describing an alien spacecraft crashing into Jupiter, postponing plans to turn Jupiter into a second Sun.'
