    The burial: Court drama with no plot twist. The rating on imbd is broken, paramount and prime tv series are given score they really don't deserve.

    The Creator (2023)

    It was entertaining. Good effort in designing the world. Nice AI.

    Suburra

    If you liked the movie, you should consider watching Romanzo Criminale - la serie, even though I dunno if that's available in languages other than Italian. I haven't watched it (I did watch Suburra because of Favino), but I know reviews to be positive. Anyways, Romanzo Criminale is the prequel to Suburra, Adagio the sequel (haven't watched it yet).

    Grazie mille.
    Those hairdoes are insane.
    Will check it out.

    UPDATE:

    Finished the Hunger Games.
    No idea they were so dark.

    Also, Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson have NO chemistry whatsoever.

    This is a story involving Native Americans, oil, conspiracy and murder.
    Not just a movie, but a documentary.
    At times, it felt like watching a Faulkner novel come alive.

    Nice to see natives being richer than the White Man.
    Starts nice & ends soul-crushingly sad.

    10/10

    Filmed on location in Romania.

    Yes, we have creepy forests.

    Hated The Killer. Maybe something is wrong with me (everybody says it is great), it really seemed like a little piece of crap (great performances, very well directed of course, but a stupid movie)

    You're obviously not a killer.

    Nothing beats a Coming of Age story.

    The Witch 2015

    Excellent horror, and an underrated movie in general. What I liked in particular was the fact that one doesn't get what's really going on until the end, because the Devil is a deceiver and a beguller, and he did all he had to in order to win his prize.

    Saw it a while back and remember liking it - particularly the monster.

    The Killer (2023 movie) sucked imo.

    Pretty decent.
    Nice concept but nothing too extraordinary.
    Main girl looks like the gender-bent version of Get Out guy.
