    I just know some of you like outstanding revenge movies. So I'm going to list my all time favorite title. All 3 versions with the same title are well worth watching because they each have a new set of very unique revenge killings. The one and only draw back to these movies is they start out kind of slow to build up to an incredible outstanding second half.

    I remember Taxi Driver as being a somewhat revenge movie for the main character goes after those who made his girl friend an addict. Very powerful movie as I recall.

    You won't regret it, Robert Di Nero plays the main character and does a fine job at it.

    I loved that movie and watched it with my dad when I was a kid in the mid/late 80s.

    If your talking about Pacific Rim, it is available on Netflix if you order DVD's I don't do the streaming video because they don't have the same number of movie selections that you can get on DVD's.

    The Imitation Game is pretty good.
    Not exactly accurate (but who expected Hollywood to do that anyway), but at the same time not sentimentalised, and not "OH MY GOD HE'S GAY!" all the way through the film.
    Cumberbatch is very "Sherlock", and I was halfway through before I succumbed to firing up Wiki because "I know THAT guy but where the **** from?". It was Ozymandias from The Watchmen not looking quite so androgynous.

    Damn! I guess it's been awhile Dyw I didn't recognize the avatar. Anyway I might watch that at some time, but it's not my favorite type of movie. I always appreciate a great plot but very much like a lot of action and effects and some bodies never hurt either.

    Then you want John Wick.
    LOTS of bodies.

    Netflix has scheduled to release that movie 2/3/2015 and it was in my queue already. I take it you've seen it already? I haven't been to a theater since I moved to Washington state about 6 years ago. I don't think the town I live in even has a theater, anyway I never found one.

    A few recent viewings of films I hadn't caught at the cinema so plumped for the (3D) Blu-Rays:

    Thor: The Dark World
    ... or "Thor: The CGI World" as it is probably better titled.
    Not bad. Tom Hiddleston is a great British actor and he tends to steal the scenes he is in.
    But 6 or 7/10 - depending on mood.

    Guardians of the Galaxy... or "Guardians of the CGI" as it is probably better titled.
    Very enjoyable film. Didn't know much/anything about the comics, so was a blank slate in terms of expectation. But it was fun and should make a reasonable franchise. 9/10

    X-Men: Days of Future Past... or "X-Men: Days of Future CGI" as it is probably better titled.
    Another good film. A glaring plot hole mid-way through but otherwise a good film. 8.5/10

    The Lego Movie... or "The CGI Movie" as it is probably better titled.
    Fun film, if possibly for the nostalgia of my days spent building stuff with it. 7.5/10

    Expatriate... or "Expatriate" as it is probably better titled.
    Shock! No CGI!! (and not 3D).
    It's a sort of poor-man's Bourne. It's not all-action but is somewhat more about the relationship of the guy with his daughter as he tries to work out what's going on. 5/10
