    swiss army man gave away the fact that he was seeing it all in his head in the trailer… I think, i haven't seen it in a while.

    If I don't find Captain Fantastic this weekend at Target, I'm probably going to get it off Amazon, or something. It looks funny as well as it is a drama,…..

    i'm surprised hunt for the wilderpeople was only an honourable mention! maybe i'm biased because i'm a kiwi, but it's all at once touching, heartbreaking, inspiring, and fucking hilarious.

    wait .. i thought America was a country of immigrants, a melting pot.. judging by these clips it looks like only white people have stories to tell, and one token..

    Captain Fantastic is WONDERFUL! Everyone needs to see it. I love Viggo and this is truly one of his best roles. Also note that Viggo Mortensen was nominated for an Oscar for this role. See it.

    Captain Fantastic?

    -Popstar was funny as hell. Would recommend for when you need a laugh.
    -Will not watch The Neon Demon. Apparently the style that goes along with the plot is like Black Swan, and I didn't have a good time watching Black Swan (I was 14)
    -The BFG was pretty good. Very faithful to the book. A little too faithful though, because the book's third act is shit and it was still used for the movie…
    -Captain Fantastic was really good. One thing holding it back would be the child actors (however maybe the issue was more of the dialogue the kids were given rather than their acting abilities in general). Otherwise, its wonderful.
    -Swiss Army Man is weird. Would recommend.
    -Florence Foster Jenkins was corny and irritating as hell in the beginning, but it got less corny and irritating during the second and most of the third acts. It goes back to being corny and irritating during the last few minutes. Would not recommend if you get annoyed easily.
    -Hell or High Water is my favourite film of 2016. Would HIGHLY recommend.
    -I watched the first three minutes of The Shallows and turned it off. Had one of those horror movie opening scenes that gets you in the mood for what you're watching. But this scene was shit.
    -Kubo looked amazing, but the story was meh. Would recommend if you want to watch some badass visuals happen.
    -Cafe Society looked great. I wanted it to get an Oscar nod for Best Cinematography. The screenplay was really good as well. Even better than some of Allen's more acclaimed pieces like Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
    -Hunt for the Wilderpeople is hilarious. Would recommend.
    -The Light Between Oceans is kinda slow. Its ok.
    -The Nice Guys is funny as fuck. Watch this before Popstar.
