The Martian.

I very thoroughly enjoyed this one. :D Among the actors I recognize are Sean Bean who played Boromir in LoTR, the fella who played Bucky Barnes, the feller who was Ant-Man's Hispanic friend, a couple others who looked familiar, and of course Matt Damon.

Surely you also recognized Jessica Chastain (probably most recognized for major roles in Zero Dark Thirty and Interstellar, as well as Oscar-nominated supporting role in The Help), playing the Mars mission's commander!
I'll confess I tend to confuse her with Bryce Dallas Howard (who played a villainous bigot in The Help), probably because they share the red hair trademark.

I know I've seen her somewhere before, but I can't put a finger on it. I've never seen the movies you mention.

The mom in Home Alone 3 maybe? :think:

Today I finally saw "Star Wars: Rogue One", great movie.

I was a little sad that in the end, all the main protagonists die a "heroic death", but that final scene with Leia made me so excited. And all the subtle jokes towards the old trilogy. Loved it!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 -- It's good.
Don't walk out on the credits.
Don't walk out at the mid-point of the credits.
Don't walk out when the credits are nearly done.
You can thank me later. ;)

*nods in agreement*

Me and my friends are always making fun of the people who leave early at a Marvel movie. :shifty:

Finally saw Rogue One tonight.

I did not expect the callbacks to certain characters would be so technically outstanding.

I did not expect it would remind me so intensely of how it felt seeing the original Star Wars.

I did not expect the story to be so deftly written.

I did not expect the characters to feel like people instead of PC checkboxes.

I did not expect it to be so much more morally ambiguous than the original, yet still satisfying.

I did not expect the final scene would punch me so hard in the feelz.

I did not expect this movie to be good.

It really is.

The final version of it is very good. And I rate it even better because it must cope with the enormous "we all know what happens in the end"-handicap. We can hope that every single of the antology movies will be this good.

If you haven't seen it yet, Arrival is a really great movie. I really liked it. Really interesting, and a story with a twist. :D
