I'd say the flashback when she picks up Luke's lightsabre with her being left just after Kylo Ren's massacre pretty much confirms it's Luke hiding his daughter before he leaves; as with the way he looks at her right at the end.
Yeah good spot on the planet. I knew that damnit. :D

I am sorry I missed out on this thread, as I was not on board when it started.

I am an American, so my picks generally reflect the culture in which I was raised. Also, i particularly love the '4thoughtough 60's. Here goes:

Cool Hand Luke
The Apartment
Bullitt
Barefoot in the Park
The Odd Couple
Vertigo, North by Northwest, Rear Window, To Catch a Thief, Notorious (5 of the best, by the greatest director ever, an Englishman)
The Searchers
Casablanca, the Big Sleep, & Key Largo
The Petrified Forest
All About Eve
The Outlaw Josey Wales
Mr Hobbs Takes a Vacation

& I'm just getting started...

I like movies that are Sci-Fi and the best one for me is The Ender's Game.

I want to see Warcraft. Can anyone give me some reviews about the movie? Or rating?

25% on Rotten tomatoes

BUT, I know someone who likes Warcraft and loved it...plus Duncan Jones has earned some leeway, so I'll probably watch it at some point.

I have a feeling that it may be one of those films that's being judged with with an traditional action film barometer and being penalised because it fails to hit the same ADD heights as bullshit like Transformers or Fast and Furious 5.

If there isn't a scene where they all Leeroy Jenkins, I'll be really disappointed.

I've never played WoW but I thought Warcraft was really good; I liked the story and the characters, the special effects and action scenes were entertaining, and it had a nice mix of humourous moments and unexpected twists. I can only think there was a touch of snobbishness in the bad reviews. If you don't like films with orcs and magic in them, then you're never going to like it, but I thought there was something refreshingly fun about it.

Whilst I'm here: If you haven't seen Deadpool, why not? And Zootopia is worth watching for the DMV scene alone.

Still not seen Deadpool, but we went as a family to see Zootopia and all loved it.

Will get hold of Warcraft ASAP. :D

I know a lad that went with his mum because no-one else would go. Regretted it pretty quickly.

Anyone seen Grimsby? If you want something laid back and funny I'd definitely recommend it
