Just rewatched Blade Runner. I noticed a lot that I had missed on my first viewing, which makes me appreciate this film a lot more than I already had.
An Oligarchic state where the ultra-rich govern a nation of entrepreneurs and innovators. Just as corrupt, hedonistic and materialistic as you think, despite its progressive policies and emphasis on quality of life.

Mortal Engines - I could not found the faults that critics wrote to bomb the movie with low ratings, it seems the ordinary general blend of CGI and adventure-action story to me. Would rate it 7/10.

People interpret the Scripture differently. Therefore, it makes sense for a group to uphold the principle, that God accepts everyone regardless of their preferrence - as long as they acceptes His grace and salvation.

Push had fairly low expectations because I read some reviews before watching, they mostly implied it was hard to understand what was going on. I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to, I didn't struggle to understand it, I was pretty stoned though and it is a good stoner film.

Border a Swedish film about a strange border guard who can smell people's emotions. One of the weirdest films I have seen.

Just rewatched The Martian. In my mind it's one of the best examples of hard sci-fi in cinema.

Lilo and Stitch

It was more sentimental than I remembered it...

Great choice! I watched it again a couple of months ago (?) and it was then that I realized how great the cast is: Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway, James Brown, Carrie Fisher, Dan Ackroyd, Ray Charles, John Candy...

Love & Mercy gave up on it about 40 minutes in, another of those films where the actors just fucking mumble the dialogue.

You only live twice - one of the Bond films I have most affection for, though it does rather herald two of the worst aspects of the franchise - silly gadgets and villain's lairs with bloody pointless monorail systems.

The monorails are nowhere near as bad as the villains' utter disregard for damage control measures.

I would prefer it if they made a Bond film that was more realistic and set in the right period rather than the films they currently make. I haven't liked one since The Man with the Golden Gun.
