2nd one is more of the same but with a sonority instead of a frat. Where do those Hollywood guys get such out there ideas?

Do like Christopher Guest? Mascots is on Netflix tonight. Haven't watched it yet but looks good.

Otherwise Central Intelligence is dumb fun. I liked Slow Learners too, not very funny but an easy watch.

You should check out Grimsby, it does have some genuine laugh at loud moments. Wouldn't recommend it as a great film or anything but if it's something not taxing on the brain that has a few laughs in that you're looking for, hten it should do the trick

Westworld is based on a movie. I watched that yesterday, and Ex Machina.

I'm surprised at how few people have seen the original westworld. I'm obvioulsy wrong but I always assumed it's just one of those films people will have seen at some stage.

Not too crazy about Mascots, few chuckles I guess.

Ghostbusters is garbage. The interplay between the team is really cringey, especially between McCarthy and Wig. Tried to take it on it's own merit (not easy) and am certain it's complete tripe.

Swiss Army Man
I wasn't won over by the quirkiness, flatulence or twee soundtrack but I did like the inventiveness on show and I was amazed it managed to stretch the 'Weekend at Bernies/Castaway' thing so far. It's not going to be everyone's cup of tea.

This short would be a reasonable indicator of the humour used (same director, loves orifices)

The Big Short, really liked it. Weirdly reminded me of a roland emmerich disaster film...Steve Carell and the lads being the financial equivalent of Jeff Goldblum, Dennis Quaid, Brosnan etc, running around telling everyone there's going to be an earthquake and nobody believes them.

The fourth wall stuff reminded me of a Michael Winterbottom film (24 Hour Party People and Cock & Bull Story specifically). Didn't like the celebrity cameos though; nice idea but badly executed.

Didn't think Tickled was great at all. Watching the trailer in this thread reveals pretty much everything and the whole documentary just isn't very well made.

Any recommendations for top quality recent films? Like within the last 2 years. Badly stuck for a decent flick.

Like what film would you describe as being totally class? Without any "it would've been better if's"?

Ex Machina for me.

Watched too much Black Mirror on Saturday, needed something less depressing yesterday.

Zootopia, quite impressive, stunning to look at and decent storyline. Above average animation.

Cafe Society. Woody Allen thing with Kirsten Stewart & Jesse Eisenberg... meh
