The Belko Experiment
« on: March 19, 2017, 03:59:26 PM »

Well... that was the second best movie of the year so far.  Gritty, intensely violent thriller that delivers exactly what the audience came for.  How would you react if this scenario played out at your office?

I really wouldn't need any incentive.

You think you know what you'll do, but this situation is a literal waking nightmare.  You only have marginal control over your faculties at best.

I've really wanted to see this, but I worry I'll never get around to it and then forget about it when it's on DVD.

I wonder when the term "out in DVD" will die off.

It probably already did. I'm old and out of touch.

It would help if Netflix wasn't a piece of shit and would just get rid of their DVD service, increase the price of streaming, and put everything online now.

It's extremely important that you see this the theater so that I... WE, can get the sequel(s) we so desperately need. This can be better than the Purge franchise if they get it right.  Right now I'm putting my faith in James Gunn.  I NEED more blood, James!

They would have to increase the price a lot to get all the necessary licensing agreements and cover the loss of DVD only memberships.

I pirate literally everything. Watermarks are the only issue.

I am magic. Saw Logan at home first, then in the theater.

You lost a LOT of steam comparing this to the god damn Purge. Now I'm questioning watching it at all.

Dang it!  I knew that would happen.  It's different in that the setup is more like Battle Royale than Purge, but I just mean it's a lot of bloody fun, with some cynical commentary about how easily civility breaks down when...
