Watching Cleopatra https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056937/ at the moment. Will finish it tomorrow, 3 hours and 15 minutes is too long for me in the middle of the week to watch in one go. Pretty good so far, reminds me a lot of Lawrence of Arabia.
Just finished the movie. I was amazed by the detail in sets and extras. Truly something I had never seen before. However the movie is still a bit too long imo. Will write a proper review soon.

Saw Office Space for the first time today. The movie holds up pretty well. I also had forgotten what Jennifer Aniston looked like pre-plastic-surgery.

Curious, it appears that the IMBD plugin shows the translated titles, instead of the original.

I saw Encanto, the latest Disney movie. It's good.
Of course, they can't go 15 minutes without breaking into song, but I still enjoyed watching it. Some of the twists were easy to spot, and it's a basic feel-good disney story, but what else did you expect from a Disney movie? It's made for kids.

Still, it had some good jokes, and it was generally enjoyable to watch. Definitely one of the better 3D Disney movies (looking at you, Frozen II).

Yeah, that's odd indeed.
Since I have a daughter now the smartest thing to do is probably skip every Disney movie, in a few years they'll be on repeat in our living room anyway :biggrin:

That's the plan! I already downloaded a ton of Disney movies in English :biggrin:
Trouble is finding subs for some of them.

Oh, I don't download a movie until I'm certain I can find subs.

worst case scenario, you can use a SRT sync tool, like https://subshifter.bitsnbites.eu. Takes some work, but you'll have perfect subtitles.
All of them have English subs, trouble is finding Dutch subs. Of course English suffices for me, but probably not for a 5(?) year old child. (no idea when children start to read)

I think you'd be surprised. GF's cousin is 8, and is perfectly capable of reading the English text in Zelda games. At least, he'll get the gist of it.
