it's probably all conspiracy theory mumbo jumbo but it looks interesting.
I reckon it's possible she could've done it

She annoyed me in her interview with her still trying to say "I knew Fraces woudl be fine after I took heroin". She's really a horrible person.
There was probably as much insight into Cobain in the Clasic Albums episode for Nevermind.

Was there not something about him pulling the trigger with his toe but when they found him, he was wearing shoes?

I doubt she was capable of murdering him and successfully covering it up.

Jurassic World
The action is actually pretty good but the CGI is horrendous (its like something from one of the 15 year old sequels) and the one liner/cliche shite is in overload. How many more films can get made where the main characters are cracking jokes after all their workmates and friends get killed!

Also, I just dont like Chris Pratt at the main man. I love him in Parks, but Holywood leading man he aint. Which is annoying cause he's gonna be in everything

Waited til all the hype had died down to watch gone girl. Glad I didn't waste money going to see it in the cinema. Absolute shite.

Curious to know what you didn't enjoy about Ex Machina?

I thought it was okay, i didn't hate it or anything, just not as brilliant as it had been made out to be.
I thought the rich entrepreneur guy was a cliched and predictable, i wasn't particularly connected to gleesons character, i thought he could have done with more back story. I thought it was a bit repetitive, the various numbered sessions with ava. I am glad though she took off in the helicopter at the end, hoped she'd do that, that was at least a deviation from the expected. It just didn't do it for me as a film overall, the whole AI thing has been done to death and there is very little new in here. 'Her' is a much better film in the genre imo. The sfx were excellent though, the production design too, really captured the claustrophobia of the space

Yeah I'd pretty much echo what Mojers said about Ex Machina. Decent flick but nothing special.

That's a fair assessment. Especially re. Gleesons character.

I really enjoyed Oscar Isaac especially in that scene

I loved the look of the film and thought it dealt with the subject matter pretty smartly. I also didn't know much about it going into it.

Jurassic World tonight. Been looking forward to this for weeks. Primed for disappointment.

class. wish i'd seen it in the cinema but what can you do.

are they making more, or is that it now?

really good. didn't know anything about the plot and i think that could be the best way to go into it because it twists and turns a bit.

dexter is good and i'm not usually a fan and don johnson is excellent, surprised i didn't hear more about his supporting role when this came out. great john carpenter-esque 80's score to the film too.

That film totally passed me by on release.

Sounds promising.

Thought Oscar Isaac was great in Ex Machina, did a lot with a character that is quite a cliche as mojo said. I've liked him in everything I've seen him in so far, looking forward to him in the next X-men film.
