I think that Dark City (1998) is a really good movie.

What We Do In The Shadows

Quote
There he is, probably still a bit upset at seeing his best friend disembowelled by werewolves.

There, I found you, that was pretty full on hey, but this is what happens when you're a vampire.
You have to watch everyone die, your mother and father, your friends, sometimes brutal, like slipping and falling on a giant spike, or falling asleep in an autumn pile of leaves and having some of them block your windpipe, or making the simple mistake of making a mask out of crackles and being attacked by ducks, geese, swans. But even dying of old age is brutal, watching your friends grow old, they can’t piss, they say stupid things and their brains go and they can’t remember anything, and then one day they can’t remember who you are and you wish they were dead and then they do die.  No, if I know Stue, this was probably the way he wanted to go, disembowelled by werewolves, blood and guts sprayed onto the trees, his face torn to shreds, ahh, I hope I made you feel better.
Certainty disturbs me

I've just watched'Oblivion' with Tom Cruise again for the umpteenth time. It's a good little tale and the special effects are excellent without being dominating nor the point of the picture.

One of my favorite movies.  Really think Rufus Sewell should have become a  bigger name after that one.

Edge of Tomorrow was one of those movies I didn't think I'd care for all that much, but ended up really enjoying.  And not just for the many times Tom Cruise dies in it.

A friend insisted I watched the Pixar/Disney animation Inside Out, which coincidentally just came to Netflix. I liked how they handled the idea of emotions (personified in this movie) guiding our behaviour, and memories being transformed from recent to long-term. Some more mature themes thrown in for the adults.

All in all, I give it an 8.5/10.

I just watched Defendor. That one had me in tears and wasn't at all what I would've expected from the trailer. Definitely not a comedy but very good.

‘The Wife’ with Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce. Just didn’t do it for me at all. There was just no chemistry between the younger Joan and Joseph. It beggared belief that she would fall for such a pompous, whining, philandering loser. That said, Close and Pryce were brilliant as was Christian Slater. I’d still recommend it and I bet Close is nominated for an Oscar.

Watched the trailer and now want to watch the movie.

I think Defendor comes under the heading of anti-hero as well.
