Who knew there was so many Freddy Mercury fans, a huge opening for Bohemian Rhapsody. On the other end The Nutcracker was a box office disaster, $20 Million on a $130 Million budget, I doubt they will make half of their budget back

Saw Overlord today.  It was a good flick.  I won't critique it like I did Halloween, but all I will say is there are no post credit scenes.  So when it's over, just leave.  :D

Can somebody please watch a new horror movie called, The Dark. Would you then please tell me WTF you make of the ending....? It's a great film, very well done. Perhaps we're not meant to understand it and make up our own minds. Mildly annoyed but I will watch it again.

Should you do this and report back please tag me, I want to know what you think.  It is worth the watching but you to WILL have questions.

Interesting to see how holiday remake The Grinch the pervious weeks holiday remake The Nutcracker in it's opening weekend the Grinch did almost double of the Nutcracker did in total of a fullweek+2nd weekend on a smaller budget.

For the newish movies, I watched a double hitter with Finding Nory (03) and Finding Dory (16). First I was really surprised they waited 13 years to do a sequal. I thought Nory was a better movie, but Dory is okay as well.

Is it a chick flick or more of a Sci Fi @HumanBeing?

I don't consider it a chick flick  ;D
It seemed kinda of indie. But it wasn't anything that took away from the story.

But I really like this type of 'what if' scenario's with regarding parallel worlds.

Checked it out last night. It seemed like a pretty good independent film. The endings last scene was good. Kind of reminded me of Doc coming back to get Marty in the beginning of Back to the Future II.

@BartEllProducer

That's great. Sometimes these sorts are movies are a hit or miss. Glad you thought it was pretty good.

The tv show Counterpart is really good. Parallel worlds and how both worlds/govts are interacting with each other.
I can't wait for season 2 which is suppose to begin this Sunday. I'll wait until the whole season is out before watching though.
I'd definitely check that out if you have not. The main actor is excellent in his role.

Got sidetracked a bit with a tv show but keeping with the thread here are some other similar movies that are worth checking out.
Side by side IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes brief summary and ratings. But yeah ratings are not everything.
All 8 of these have some great entertainment value and will make you think.

Primer is really smartly done but complicated (at least for me and from what I read a lot of others - at least on the first viewing).
There are flowcharts out there on the web showing 'stuff' that goes on in this movie and how it all connects.

It is one of those movies that it is ok not to follow every little detail, don't get frustrated by that, it is the way it is meant to be. Watching it a few times the brilliance of it comes out.
They had a budget of 7k and made about 850k at the box office. Nice return on investment.
"Roger Ebert declaring: "The movie never looks cheap, because every shot looks as it must look." "

That is not my overall favorite in the list though but this post is already a huge wall.

If you have any movies of similar subject matter please let me know. I rarely watch movies. But when I do these type of movies are my jam  :D
