Start with Ex Machina.....underrated.
Looper as well.

Not sure if you've seen it, but Predestination (i think thats on Netflix) is worth a watch.

Again, not sure whats on what right now but have a look at anything Brit Marling has done. Start with 'The Sound of my Voice', East.....tv series the OA. etc.


Thank you, K.

Loved Predestination. Great concept and really, really well acted. Will start checking out the others on the w/e.

Donald Sutherland gave the best performance by any supporting actor in any film I've ever seen.

Loved Donald S in JFK... his 2nd best performance, come on CC... He made the role of Sgt Oddball in Kelly's Heroes an icon!

I generally stay clear of Costner films.

I like 2.
Draft Day is definitely one of them.
Tin Cup is the other one.

Never seen the Postman......and don't really want too. Not my cup of tea.

Tin Cup is fantastic

I think it's a very personal thing, what appeals to each of us....and while we're all different, in this thread we'll find others with similar tastes.
I'm not real fussed about modern/crime/drug movies.
Although the Godfather (well 1 & 2) are amongst my favourites.

My favourite movie of all time is probably John Wayne's 'The Searchers'.
...and I guess that's why the Costner movies have an appeal.
It' s that expansive, storytelling I enjoy.

Nobody wants to mention Waterworld?  >:D

It's OK...
Probably a poor man's Mad Max.
The problem with it was the cost and pre publicity was such that the film was 'talked down' as a box-office flop before it even got going.
It's a bit like the Postman.
It appeals to some.

Field of dreams was good on first viewing too.

....but i think thats it. The more you watch his movies (for me at least) the less interesting they become. There is no 'repeat viewing excitement' from majority of his movies for me.

I can watch a Tarantino movie a 100 times.....Kubrik movies 1000 times....and still get something out of it.
I'll watch some movies for specific actors/actresses.....repeat viewings and all....

Costner....barely gets a 2nd viewing. When it does, its almost always disappointing.

Ain't it strange ... I hated it.  "The cowboys" I thought was his best.

Yep...its like we said before, some we'll find common appeal others we'll disagree upon.
