A-X-L

upload_2020-7-2_19-20-49.png


https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5709188/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_23

A.X.L. is a top-secret, robotic dog who develops a special friendship with Miles and will go to any length to protect his new companion.

How great would it be to have a pet that you didn't have to clean up after? Well, meet A-X-L - a robot dog who takes AI to a new level. The dog is capable of hacking ATM machines, paying for things you need without spending a cent, and fly. Yes, a flying dog. Miles, a promising Motocross rider, comes across A-X-L when he was left severely injured by a prank played on him by other Motocross riders. A-X-L immediately chases Miles, but soon learns that Miles is friendly after repairing him after an accident. Miles bonds with his new friend under the very careful surveillance of the scientist who created him as he is to be released to the military as a weapon. Before they know it, it becomes difficult to predict A-X-L's behavior, like a real dog, and things start to spiral out of control.

This movie gives us an indication of how smart the AI of the future is, and how, without realising it, we are creating intelligence that will be smarter than us.

Did anyone here watch Power Rangers back in the 90s? If so, I've got something for you (I watched this last night). It's a fan made movie of Power Rangers that has a dark twist to it. I found it quite entertaining lol. There's also some eye candy in this. Rita from the original Power Rangers series returns in this movie. It's only 14 min guys, give it a chance.

Back to the Future Part II



https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096874/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_3

After visiting 2015, Marty McFly must repeat his visit to 1955 to prevent disastrous changes to 1985...without interfering with his first trip.

One of the greatest sequels ever made. Marty visits the year 2015 from 1985 in order to prevent his son from engaging in an incident that will result in his family falling apart. At the same time, Biff returns to 1955 to give his younger self a copy of a 50 year sporting results almanac to gamble and become a millionaire, and alter 1985 for the worse. As a result, Marty and Doc must travel back to 1955 and get the almanac and prevent the disastrous future from ever taking place. One problem... the Delorean time machine gets destroyed in 1955 and Doc is sent back to the old west, and it's up to Marty to go back there and find his way back home in 1985.

I didn’t mind this one my man..I would give it 6 to 6.5 out of 10. :blush:
Well you sir are very decent. The problem I had with this film is that it couldn't reel me in long enough. Movies should catch your attention straight away. I'm sure what happens after the first 20 mins is interesting, but I didn't want to have to wait for anything to happen. That's why I love the Fast and Furious movies - it's action from the start.

Wrecked

View attachment 15737

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1316622/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

A man trapped in a car wreck at the bottom of a ravine must overcome incredible odds to survive.

Ok, I've got a challenge for my friend and brother, @The_Chimpster - if you can watch the movie for more than 15 mins, you've beaten me.

1/10.
I'm limiting my time on here so don't really post much any more, but felt the need to after reading your review.

I actually liked wrecked, don't remember much about it, but I recall I enjoyed certain aspects of it. Plus I don't mind Gonzo, always good seeing him in human form ;)

Billy Madison



https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112508/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

In order to inherit his fed up father's hotel empire, an immature and lazy man must repeat grades 1-12 all over again.

Who hasn't seen this movie? It's seriously one of the greatest comedies that I've seen, and it has so many famous one-liners from it. If you haven't seen this movie, do yourself a favor and watch it.

Rush Hour 2



https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0266915/

Carter and Lee head to Hong Kong for a vacation, but become embroiled in a counterfeit money scam.

As mentioned, Lee and Carter are embroiled in a money laundering scam, and are kidnapped in LA and find themselves transported to Vegas. There, they attempt to cut the head off the snake and derail the scam.

My only problem with this brilliant movie is that it's too short!

Grease

upload_2020-7-10_9-28-36.png


https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077631/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

Good girl Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John) and greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta) fell in love over the summer. When they unexpectedly discover they're now in the same high school, will they be able to rekindle their romance?

Sonny and Doody keep this movie funny. A great comedy musical-comedy-romance film all-round, but the only annoying thing I found in this movie is that many of the couples constantly bickered and broke up throughout - apart from that it was great. Also, I know that people like to say that being a teenager in the 80s would've been great, but I reckon being a teenager in the late 50s what it.

Berlin Syndrome



https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3335606/

A passionate holiday romance leads to an obsessive relationship, when an Australian photojournalist wakes one morning in a Berlin apartment and is unable to leave.

Our very own Teresa Palmer stars in this movie. After a chance run-in on the street with a charming local man, she and he hit it off and have what was supposed to be a one-night stand. However he becomes obsessed with her and won't let her leave his apartment. He claims her to be his property and uses bondage techniques to make her submit to his desires.

Gosh I gotta say this... Teresa Palmer is a butterface in this movie, however her body is insanely HOT.

The Old Guard

https://www.thekennel.net.au.co/community/attachments/1594688791524-png.434/?hash=5841427ee0543d67cfeed36376e7104d

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7556122/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

A covert team of immortal mercenaries are suddenly exposed and must now fight to keep their identity a secret just as an unexpected new member is discovered.

This movie was great. Basically a team of immortal warriors hundred of years old who bring justice to the earth in areas they feel necessary. Charlize Theron (Andy) is the oldest, and their leader, and always makes the tough calls. It's unique in it's own ways the way you see the team interact with each other, and the ending to this movie... well it was freaking crazy, left me hanging on for what I'm sure is going to be a sequel.

The House

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4481514/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

After the town takes away their daughter's college scholarship, a couple start an illegal casino in their friend's house to make back the money.

Pretty much what you'd expect from a Will Ferrell film. A lot of laughs and a lot of stupidity. I watched this immediately after The Old Guard so was a bit weary to give it a proper reivew.

The Hurricane Heist

https://www.thekennel.net.au.co/community/attachments/1594689290277-png.437/?hash=5841427ee0543d67cfeed36376e7104d

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5360952/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Thieves attempt a massive heist against the U.S. Treasury as a Category 5 hurricane approaches one of its Mint facilities.

The background of this movie is based on what actually happens daily in the US Treasury. Hundred of millions of dollars in degraded US currency is destroyed through shredders due to their poor state. The thieves in this mission push to steal a bulk of this money with the distraction of a Cat 5 hurricane coming towards them. It seems simple enough. Can a lone employee and 2 brothers overcome a team of greedy thieves whilst battling the monster hurricane?

Not a bad movie, typical piles of US-based action in here. A lot of guns and high body count (that to be fair, they were trying to keep low).

I'm not sure why the posters aren't showing here as they've showed on other sites.

It probably didn't like the house poster or movie (and I can't say I blame it, I'm starting to really hate will ferrell)

I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry

https://www.thekennel.net.au.co/community/attachments/1594944886548-png.459/


https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0762107/

Two straight, single Brooklyn firefighters pretend to be a gay couple in order to receive domestic partner benefits.

I saw this movie back in the cinema in 2007. I only watched it because I had 2 free vouchers that were about to expire so I went with the Mrs to see it as there was no decent action film showing. Now if you're someone who can enjoy a movie taking piss out of homosexuality, then you might enjoy the comical elements of this film, however if you're a snowflake who lives under the guise of PC, then you might find this film highly offensive because two straight men are getting benefits that are entitled only to gay people.

So... it's just another comedy movie off the never-ending assembly of Happy Madison (Adam Sandler's production company) and has it's moment, but I only watched this as it was on the flix!
