Nice to see Predestination and Godzilla were high on your list. I still need to catch Nightcrawler.

Loved them both! They certainly deserved their spots. :)
You need to see Nightcrawler for Gyllenhaal's performance alone.

Sorry, had a hard time getting past The Hobbit. Not like the skinny little novel, but good for its new telling anyway.

Must check out Predestination :) Night Crawler was creepy. Loved it.

Have a good weekend George.

I see your point, Donna. ;) Yes, in comparison to LOTR, it's weaker, but I thought the third Hobbit was absolutely spectacular!

You must, indeed. It will mess with your head big time!

Thanks, same to you. ;)
