Hardcore Henry i believe ticks these boxes? you may have seen it. they went with practical effects throughout the movie as much as they possibly could. there are like one or two scenes i think that even have CG at all
I'm not sure if you're joking, but that movie is like, CGed out the rear end in a top hat, including plenty of CG blood and color correction.

They're sort of in the cultural zeitgeist, so she might've heard about them, but honestly I think it's pretty tough to predict the ends of Inglourious Basterds or Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood just because there's no real way to know which direction Tarantino is going. I don't know if Blackhat is something you can necessarily "figure out," but if it is, I think it'd be hard to guess, just because there are lots of possibilities. I'd be pretty surprised if she can predict the end of Glass. Really I'm a little suspicious of how many movies she can in fact predict before halfway through: lots of movies throw in twists after the 1st half that aren't so much "unpredictable" but rather they're one of a dozen twists the movie could've thrown in, so how would anyone know that twist is coming rather than some other twist? So for instance in Margaret someone dies, but it's not like there's an obvious person who is going to die or even an obvious candidate for death.

The other night I watched American Pop with some friends and while opinions were divided, we all agreed that, despite the fact that the film takes place mostly in the same place, the whole thing felt like an enormous journey. What are some other films that achieve a similar emotion?

Alternative Christmas movies? Stuff that takes place on/around Christmas but isn't about Christmas? The more offbeat or away from traditional Christmas movies, the better. Only caveat: no horror.
I just posted one in the noir thread - Blast of Silence.

what are the good comedy movies of the last like, i dunno, 5 years? anything newer than/contemporary to what we do in the shadows would be good
In addition to what others have recommended (lots of good recs already!):

Blindspotting (comedy/drama, but definitely lots of comedy); The Beach Bum; The Climb (extremely funny IMHO); Thunder Road (dramady); The Big Sick; Gringo (straight up comedy); The Other Side of Hope (warning: Finnish sense of humor required); The Kid Detective (some dramatic elements); The Intern (if you like Nancy Meyers); The Lego Batman Movie; Always Be My Maybe (nice romcom); Don't Think Twice (dramady heavy on the comedy); Game Night (most people think this is a stone cold classic); Happiest Season (mediocre romcom but I like it); Ralph Breaks the Internet; Uncle Drew (very funny); Deadpool and Deadpool 2; Ghostbusters; The Art of Self-Defense (you need a certain sort of sense of humor); Caf Society (mildly acceptable late period Woody Allen dramady); Central Intelligence; Diamantino (very deep, probably you gotta be European or ideally Portuguese to get the most out of it); Spy; Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping; Blockers (I didn't like it but many did); Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar (really did nothing for me but lots of people adore it); Mortdecai (one of the worst movies I've ever seen, but your mileage may vary).
