Movie Monday Free Talk

We had a couple spurts at trying to do a regular movie discussion thread in the past here, but it seems to have fizzled out and I would love to bring it back. (sorry for missing last week's I was traveling!)

So Tilderinos, have you watched any movies recently you want to discuss? Any movies that you want to recommend or are hyped about? Feel free to discuss anything here.

Please just try to provide fair warning of spoilers as you can.

    A couple of days ago i re-watched Nightcrawler. This is probably my third time by now, and i will most likely see it again at some point. It takes you under the skin of a "typical" psychopath more so then many other movies have done i think.
    But it still makes you feel sympathetic towards his struggles finding his place in the world, which is an important angle, since most psychopaths are perfectly fine and acclimated in the workplace. Often even fits a leading position of a company where the shareholders are number one, and where stepping on others are part of the process of making money.

    Jake Gyllenhaal are one of my favorite actors, and casting him for this role was perfect. There are few other actors that are able to put themselves in the mind of someone as the character he plays.

        Actors always have a peak of performance over their careers, once, or maybe twice, most likely. Nightcrawler is probably his best work if you ask me, and where his role in Donnie Darko would come...

        Actors always have a peak of performance over their careers, once, or maybe twice, most likely. Nightcrawler is probably his best work if you ask me, and where his role in Donnie Darko would come in as a close second. Both of them covering a mentally ill person to some degree or another.

      As someone who adores Queen, I can't see the appeal for anyone who is actually a fan of theirs or Freddie Mercury. It looked bland, lazy, whitewashed and so unappealing that I can't bring myself...
