I regret not watching Fury Road sooner...  Must have been some experience watching it first time on big screen:two_thumbs_up:

I am planning to watch this one day 1 without bothering about reviews.  George Miller won't let down for sure. 

Greatest action director on the planet by miles. 

I liked ATJ in The Menu...  Haven't seen One Night in Soho which has great reviews..  But will surely do. 

Last Night in Soho's director is Edgar Wright, amazing director, check out all his movies. Also his co-writer in Soho is Krysty Wilson-Cairns, she also co-wrote 1917 and is beautiful :love:

Was travelling for work yesterday and had few hours of idle time, watched Anatomy of a Fall (legal thriller drama) in a nearby PVR and loved it, 10/10. French-English, candidate of movie of the year. Later was reading about it and apparently it was 2023 Palme d'Or winner.

Watched Dune again in IMAX (no real IMAX in India but still.

 

Part 2 releases on Thursday. @Lone Wolf you a fan of Dune?

Yes big fan of the books...  GEoD personal fav...   Part 1 was well done.  I honestly had low expectations as it's not a easy adaptation by any stretch but was pleasantly surprised. 

Planning on Sunday to watch Part 2.

Something that always puzzled me if you understand Dune. why do they fight with knives and swords when they have lazer and other crazy inventions in that world? 

Simple in Dune universe...  A fast moving object cannot penetrate the shields..  Only slow moving objects like Knife and swords can..  Even they are ineffective if you swing wildly.  Slow and steady pressure is needed. 

Even laser guns are literal suicide as when they come in contact with shield it leads to a powerful explosion.

That makes no sense. So why not shoot a low velocity bullet? A shotgun for example can be low velocity. Also, how would the shield protect against pure energy in the form of a laser. So if someone is wearing a shield, they will be protected even if they are underneath a spaceship taking off over them?

You are not getting it a bullet travels on the basis of momentum not thrust unlike a knife or sword. 

Also the Shields could be 100% protective  but that would not enable the person to breathe..  Hence it was made slightly penetrative as per the writers...  A neat trick. 

The Laser gun when it comes in contact with this specific shield can start a unpredictable chain reaction which would lead to a big a*** explosion virtually a suicide for both shooter and target. 

In the books however Harkonnens did use big guns in a surprise attack on Atreidis...
