    • I recently watched HOTEL ARTEMIS and was pleasantly surprised by the film (which I was of course going to see since it has Jeff Goldblum in it, but regardless, still pleasantly surprised). The film has a dystopian scifi twist, future of medtech, and interesting characters that I would have liked to have seen more exploration of. Any other fun overlooked recent flicks i should see?

    • Jeff Goldblum as a terrifying crime lord? Jodie Foster? In. With such an all-star cast I'm surprised it only did $7 million at the U.S. box office.

    • I just caught the first episodes of the BBC's Little Drummer Girl.

      It's a mini-series based on the John le Carre novel.

      These are the same people who made The Night Manager.

      So far, it's excellent. It's about Israeli intelligence recruiting an actress and deploying her to catch terrorists.

      I'm not sure where you can find it in the US... legally.

    • I startled when I read Night Manager for a second because it reminded me of Knightcrawler. You've probably all seen it, but if not, oh. Damn.

    • I watched a trailer for the Hotel Artemis, but it left me feeling meh about the story. I blame the trailer 😉.

      However based on your recommendation, I will check it out. It reminds me a bit of John Wick, which I loved. Too bad if it only grossed 7M in the theatres.

    • The first thing I thought of when the movie was described to me (pre the trailer) was the hotel chain in the John Wick stories. I thought at the time "You beauty!"

      Turns out it isn't the same, but it still looks good. And Jodie looks like she actually might be acting instead of sleepwalking, which she has unfortunately been doing in the last couple of movies she has been (IMO).

    • If y'all at all interested in weird, half french movies, check this out.. may be hard to get by someone used to Hollywood style..

    • Thank you Victoria - I found Hotel Artemis on Amazon video rental tonight and I loved the movie - great character development and great acting, and lots of exciting action as well
