    An absolutely stupid idea for vmax.

    Keep it in gold class where's there's only like 20 people and massive seat but not vmax.

    I don't want to smell that shit while I'm watching a movie

    I watched Downsizing recently. There are a few funny moments. But it was just another movie with a sad main character trying to discover some joy in life after a setback he wasn't expecting. Sadly the whole concept of shrinking humans was little more than a tool to facilitate that setback in the plot. Some of the sets that were created for the downsized humans to live in were interesting, but the movie probably wouldn't have been any better or worse if the main character hadn't downsized. My advice would be to wait and watch it when they inevitably show this on TV. On the plus side of things I did really enjoy the Nachos that I ate while watching the movie, although i can make far better nachos myself at home.

    Agree with this. 2 people sitting right next to me eating a hamburger ruined a recent movie experience for me. A FUCKING HAMBURGER. Try eating that with sitting down without a table in front of you. And I'm not talking a cheap $2 McDonalds cheeseburger, I'm talking something that needed to be held together by a skewer. Bloody idiots needed to get wetwipes out afterwards to clean themselves.

    My favorite cinema in Brisbane is one where you order dinner and they bring it direct to your chair, booze included. They have all sorts of stuff - pizza, burgers. Delicious. Great for date nights.

    Another option if you don't like people is to go to the drive in. You can be safely cocooned in your car, plus it's a fun nostalgic way to see a movie.

    Watched Juno again a couple of nights ago.

    Good little low budget flick that was perfectly cast.

    Poor old Michael Cera might be forever typecast though.

    Isn't this the 2nd time in as many years that Matt Damon has saved an Asian woman? :) [After Great Wall]

    Basically, in 2019 global warming starts taking it's toll on Earth with millions of people dying due to the effects. To combat this, nations on Earth jointly install a satellite in space that controls the weather patterns on Earth. Then it starts to malfunction. Blizzards in the middle of the desert in Afghanistan freeze people to death. Magma Earthquakes ravage Hong Kong. Lightning strikes all over Orlando. Title Waves in the Desert in Dubai. Freezing water waves sweep over Rio. Everything that can go wrong does go wrong. So they send in the man they fired into outer space to fix it.

    While this is all happening, a secret plot to ensure the US President is killed so the Vice President (played by Ed Harris) is also coming together.

    Very predictable at times but somewhat enjoyable as it's a disater that mankind brought upon themselves.

    6.5/10

    Not sure if I reviewed this somewhere further up the thread, but I thought it was pretty ordinary. The sound and visual effects on the big screen were impressive though.

    Like if they tried to make an Armageddon 2, but the tension is between brothers as opposed to a man and his future son in law.

    This is the only movie I've seen with Matt Damon in it for years. I think the last ones I saw were 'Elyssium' and 'the adjustment bureau'.

    Yes, actually Wahesh asked me about it back in October. I didn't give it score though - so i'll give 5/10.

    I was kidding a bit.

    The Guardian, bless them, had an opinion piece recently titled, kid you not:

    High-concept satire Downsizing is dwarfed by its white saviour narrative

    I have started following a FB page called "Peak Guardian" where someone has put all the ridiculous articles. It's pretty funny, especially if you, like I do, actually like the G's journalism but just shake their head at a lot of the terrible opinion columns they publish :)

    That pretty much sums me up. I like reading the Guardian but the opinion/column articles are ridiculous.

    What do you think guys? I’m a bit skeptical Very hard to do a Han Solo film without Harrison Ford..



    Ps. Just a note Ehrenreich is 28..Ford was 33 when he played Solo..not much difference.. The film is set 10 years before A New Hope..
