It's about 2 young girls who go missing starring Hugh Jackman & Jake Gyllenhaal.

Oh yeah bet they were gutted about that

Toy Story 4. 7/10

 

Not bad, towards the end the room we watched it in got very dusty but other than that it was enjoyable throughout. 
 

Didn’t think it was good as some of the others but still good all the same.

Hail Satan? Great documentary about The Satanic Temple and modern satanists - no, it's not at all like Rosemary's Baby; most don't believe in Satan and spend their time challenging violations of religious freedom by campaigning for a statue of Baphomet being erected on the same site as 10 commandment monuments (which were originally promotions for the Cecil B Demille film). Parts of this are hilarious - same sex couples kissing over graves to turn the dead gay (it was a wind up). 8/10

It Part 2 (Downloaded from the web with Korean hardcoded subs).

 

Twas alright but no better than that. There was no real sense of fear or menace. This is partly because the characters are now grown up and things such as creepy old houses are terrifying to children but not to adults and hence much of the childhood fear of growing up into an unknown and scary world has gone. There is too much CGI. The clown is not as scary as Tim Robins. For a film that lasts 2 hours and 40 minutes there is a surprising lack of things going on. It is a series of vaguely connected attempts at cheap scares.

 

5/10

Mrs. had that La La Land on the telly , seemed very twee , not much evidence of why it did well at the Oscars.

I enjoyed it when it came out despite always avoiding musicals, watched it again a couple of months ago, enjoyed it even more. It's one of the best films of the past decade.

And it did well at the Oscars because it's also about the lives of people who vote for the Oscars.

It was a well crafted bit of nostalgia, harkening back to the era when musical cinema was popular.

Any decent Films on Netflix/Prime (new releases)? 

 

Only been watching series since about Feb, so fancy getting a few Films in.

Drishyam (watched on Netflix)

 

Indian film about a family that goes to extraordinary lengths to cover up an accident.

 

The slo-mo scenes with tense music were just preposterous.

 

Was a good film despite that, but I'm docking half a point because of the above.

 

Also nearly 3 hours long, which may put some off.

 

7.5/10

Also watched Prisoners on Netflix which I gave an 8/10 on previous page.

Joker - amazing performance by Joaquin Phoenix. Very dark and quite slow paced.

Musical score by same composer who did Chernobyl is also very sinister and adds to the atmosphere of the film. Some people have said it’s trying too hard to be a serious film. So what?

Its no bad thing. One of those films where you’ll either love it or hate it. I really enjoyed it. 9/10

Joker 9/10

 

Very, very unsettling at times and a tough subject matter but brilliantly done. A film that will stay with you after leaving the cinema, a lot to process. 

 

Great film, great performance from Joaquin Phoenix and a great score.

Prisoners. Agree with the 8/10 reviews. A well paced thriller with suspense to spare. Hugh Jackman is very good in it and the acting all round is pretty good. 

Mute. 5.5/10

 

I really tried to like this film as it had loads of potential, yet despite some very good acting I just couldn't get into it. It felt like a patchwork quilt of a film, thrown together without much thought to consistency. It's by no means shit, but it just ends up being a film you'll follow to the end after investing time in it.

Is that the one from 2013? I thought it was pretty decent too but had no idea Hugh Jackman was in it.To be honest I barely know who he is beyond the name. Don Johnson was good as the prison warden too.

Capernaum

 

Lebanese film about a little 12 year old kid who goes to prison and then sues his parents for bringing him into a world of unrelenting misery and lovelessness.

 

The back story is incredible, the acting even better, the little lad who plays Zain is seriously, seriously incredible and the final shot of the film absolutely floored me. Haven't felt this way about a film since Lion, perhaps Capernaum is even more affecting due to the stellar performances by a cast of amateurs.

 

Highly, highly recommended, majestic movie making.

 

10/10 Exodus Redux on Kodi

 

Thanks to @SammyAftershave and @1892-LFCWasBorn for the recommendation, cheers lads.

Are you confusing this with Brawl In Cell Block 99, and confusing Hugh Jackman with Vince Vaughn?

It's time we renamed this thread "The films Vlad doesn't like and the actors he's not heard of". To be fair we could rename the TV show one similarly too.

On a similar theme any threads about birds could be 'Which ones Vlad thinks have fake tits & which ones he reckons look under age.' & the trainer ones 'Vlad thinks these are all shit.'.
