What's the last good "Original" movie you have seen in the Cinema?

    Just watched the release of the new Gladiator trailer. Looks like it could be ok but at the same time has the feel of a Simpsons parody about it due to the music!

    When was the last time you saw something in the cinema that wasn't a remake or a sequel that impressed??

    That's easy, Oppenheimer, blew me away!
    Very interesting subject material, great performances and special effects.

    An Cailín Ciúin.

    What a beautiful and stunning movie. Whole cinema is tears at the end. The cinematography was extraordinary as well. Should have won the Oscar.

    Technically it's based on a very successful book. And there was a film back in 1984 and a TV mini series.

    But that's the way big budget movies have gone. It's all remakes, sequels or prequels and if there is anything original it'll be based on a very successful TV series or book or game or toy or comic or whatever as long as it has a huge ready made market. And then they screw it up by getting in a director who doesn't understand that franchise.

    Even some of the 'original' stuff is just classic stories with nouns changed.

    Children cartoons are the most original movie genre left , and the live action remakes of them can die a death.

    In so many movies today you pick from 10 distinctive genres and your story has 15 beats. Save the Cat

    I went to see Dune 2 in the cinema, my first visit to the Cinema for god knows how many years. In the intervening time I had moved onto a 4K TV and I thought the picture quality in the Cinema in comparison was terrible. I suppose you have to go to one of these IMAX cinemas to get a decent equivalent picture quality as a 4K TV these days. Sorry bit of a segue.

    Everything I don't like is either woke or fascist - possibly both - pick one.

    Arrival, decent SF story.

    Oppenheimer

    1917, thought that was excellent.


    Also enjoyed Bullet Train but it was originally a novel iirc.

    Fly Me to the Moon was brilliant.

    I don't know if it was a cinematic release but it was on Sky Cinema - but lately I saw A Sacrifice, dark but enjoyable.

    Before that yes, Oppenheimer for sure and Belfast. There's not much that isn't a toy advert or a reboot.

    Poor Things, felt like it was influenced by a lot of directors over the decades but ended up being such a unique and amazing experience.

    Civil War. Despite feeling like an episode of The Last of Us in places, a very plausible depiction of the future of the USA.
