After watching about the 15th trailer for a recent action movie where someone is "putting together a team," I think that may be the secret to John Wick's success. I think he's the only modern action hero who flies solo.

Game Night was amusing. Perfectly paced. Strattles the line between comedy and thriller but doesnít really deliver enough of either.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was an excellent story, and well-acted. I think Frances McDormand will win the Oscar for the

scene alone. And Sam Rockwell should win over Woody Harrelson. His character had more of a transformative journey. Unless Dafoe or Jenkins don't win. They were both heartfelt in their respective films.

And The Shape of Water was a gorgeous fairy tale. My hope is Sally Hawkins wins the Oscar. She was fetching in it.

Looking forward to watching Darkest Hour.

Iím in the same boat with Shape of Water as I am Black Panther. Everyone seems to love it and I donít get what I missed. Great visuals, pretty weak story.

Black Panther was good. I agree with whoever said the main character was the least interesting one though. Thankfully I enjoyed everyone else. The movie wasn’t AMAZING though, because personally I found it incredibly predictable.

We saw Annihilation yesterday and I liked it. Very different type of film and the ending was mesmerizing.....I want to say though, I haven't see a crowd so into a sci-fi movie in a long time. There were parts of the movie that were very intense that everyone, I mean everyone stopped eating their popcorn/snack, stop sipping on their drinks, stopped moving around and just sat there waiting to see what was going to happen. You could hear a pin drop.....pretty amazing.

I saw "Blank Panther" today. I enjoyed it, but I think it was a little overhyped. Great movie, but not game changing like everyone was saying. Still a good movie though.

I thought it was just going out on Netflix outside the US. Is it going to be available in the States too?

I saw Annihilation on Sunday, and I haven't stopped thinking about it since leaving the theater. An incredible cinematic experience. Beautiful, terrifying, cerebral, visceral, enigmatic, engaging, and unforgettable. I just checked out the book at the library, and can't wait to see the film in theaters again.

That's interesting that you find Get Out to be the best film.

I loved it when I first saw it this time last year, and it sort of hovered around my top 5 or 10 throughout the year. Then I watched it again last week, and it was even better the second time around. Peele does some amazing visual storytelling with production design and costume colors that I missed on first viewing. There are a lot of layers to the film that can be appreciated on second and third viewings. To me, that's the mark of a great film.

I think it's remarkable that it was Jordan Peele's first film

Get Out and Three Billboards were neck and neck for #1 for me. Three Billboards gets a slight edge for spinning a few more plates.
