Memory: The Origins of Alien. Very interesting documentary on the making of Alien, how all the different influences ended up in the movie. I loved the Alien movie, great to see an account behind how it came to be.

 

8.5/10.

Watched this yesterday, thanks entirely to your post and enjoyed it.

 

I love Alien, possibly the greatest horror film ever, and this fleshed out some of the background and dispelled some of the myths surrounding the conception and realisation of the film. However, a lot of this I already knew from similar biopics and vignettes, but very interesting and enjoyable nevertheless.

Trainspotting 2

 

4/10 A few poignant moments but apart from that fount it all a bit over the top.

 

 

Spud steals the show in this. The whole thing with Begbie escaping prison then just going back to his ex-wife and sons house and living there without the bizzies smashing the door through is annoying. 

 

The suicide scene and the proddy club one are brilliant. Its more than a 4 but maybe thats me being nostalgic.

Crikey , I thought it was at least a 9/10 , really surprised me 

I did enjoy it mate but it was still a bit too Bollywood for my tastes, and compared to some of the other blisteringly good foreign language films I've watched recently (Parasite, Burning, Roma, Capernaum) I found Andhadhun a poor relation to those.

 

Just my personal opinion like.

Room 237

 

Another biopic, this time a timely one because this little film documents the making of Kubrick's The Shining.

 

Room 237 is bat shit mental, absolutely bursting at the seams with lunatic conspiracy theories (for instance, The Shining was Kubrick's coded admission that he filmed and faked the moon landings for NASA).

 

Aside from the conspiracy stuff though there's lots of little foibles and details which would interest fans of the The Shining, the links to Ridley Scott's Bladerunner being particularly pleasing.

 

Recommended for fans of The Shining and Stanley Kubrick and for those who like this sort of thing.

The new Terminator movie :

 

+  Great action

+  Lots of fun to watch

+ Brilliant Alien inspired Terminators

+ Good to see Sarah Connor back alongside T101 or whatever the number is

 

- Nonsense story

- Cheesy dialogue

- Impossible survival odds

- Tries to ignore Terminator movies after the first two to acknowledge they were shite

- Mexican lady seems to undergo a magical and nonsensical personality transformation

 

Worth watching for the positives, chucked in the bin for the negatives

5/10

Darc. 4/10. Nonsensical infiltrate and destroy the Yakuza from within story. Gets the four for some suitably brutal fight sequences, but that’s it.

 

Dead Man Down. 7/10. Nonsensical infiltrate and destroy criminal gangs from within story. Better script and actors elevate it above the aforementioned bollocks.

The Big Sick - despite my general hatred of the genre, I really liked it (even got a bit teary at one point). Touching and funny, which I think is the goal with this kind of thing. 8.5/10.

Watched IT part one the other day. Thought it was very well done, removing nostalgia from the picture it's a big improvement over the original in many respects. Although Curry's performance meant they could just use make-up to escalate things for the actual attacks, which is the one thing I thought fell flat in the new one.  Skarsgard was spot on in the main, but the sped-up waddle towards the screen approach just seemed a bit silly. Pretty much everything else was spot on. Great atmosphere, really triggered an interest in the whole King mythos again. Mad that I've never actually read one of his full novels. 8/10

 

Dark Tower - a why not Netflix click on this follwoing It. It's average, doesn't seem to ever think it's going to set up anything bigger than the single film so at least it tells a satisfying story. Some good performances, but little to say and never really gives the world any real weight. 6/10

 

Troll Hunter - seen it loads, the best 'found footage' film for me (although I've never seen Rec, which people were raving about back in the day). 9/10. Love it.

 

 

Rec is very good, as is Rec 2. Rec 3 is bonkers, not in a good way.

Yep, Rec is excellent. Genuinely scary at parts too.

I'll have to give that another go- I did try and watch it some time ago and gave up after 10 minutes or so, thinking it was just going to be some smug Millennial pish.

"Duck Soup" and "A Night At The Opera"

 

Two from the Marx Brothers, made in the 1930s.

 

Excellent physical comedy, slapstick, horrible puns, the odd musical number and Groucho's endless wise-cracks ("I have half a mind to join a club and beat you over the head with it").

 

I think the latter is a bit better than for former, but they're both great movies.

The Old Man and the Gun - Supposedly Robert Reford's last film, it's a low-key study of a serial bank robber and jail breaker who robs banks without firing a shot and by being polite. It's quite a gentle movie and Redford is charming in the lead role, Casey Affleck is the cop who's hunting him and kind of admires him too. The only thing that took me out of the action was the description of his character's age as 50 to 60 when Redford is 83 and is starting to look like it. Other than that, it's a nice film told in a sympathetic manner and shot with a slightly grainy '80s aesthetic (which is when the movie is set) and it's worth seeking out. 8.5 out of 10.

The King. Netflix. Based on King Henry the V and his ascent to the throne and the battle of Agincourt thereafter. I say based, but in all honesty it is probably 20% history and 80% pure fiction. Pretty boring at times as they spend way too long on dialect and situations that could have been done in a lot less time. It isn't shit if like me you like this Genre, nor is it that good. A very mediocre 5.5 crowns out of 10. 

 

Snowpiercer. Netflix. A Dystopien film with a difference and not in a good way. The difference being it is set on a train. The story is full of plot holes with mediocre acting and a story line that a 14 year old could have knocked up in class. I honestly can't recommend it unless you want to waste over two hours of your life. 4 carriages out of 10.

Snowpiercer was absolutely terrible, I wished I had turned it off.

 

It is based on a French graphic novel and apparently they are going to make a TV series based on it.

I turned Showpiercer off after about 20 minutes. Looked incredibly dull.

It picked up a bit, but you made the right choice.

One to miss, although it could have been very good with a better writer and actors. As it was, a load of cack.

Yeah, I would have to agree about Snowpiercer, what a heap of shit. Baffles me how most of the reviews I've read on IMBD, RT etc. are actually positive. 

 

Yeah, that's why I decided to watch it and give it a chance. Some strange people doing reviews if they think that was a decent flick.

    • Must have got some stick, it's been deleted now! But they're the senior club, dont you know?
    • Haha,woodison struggling to make the necessary requirements to stage games when the league resumes!   A number of Premier League clubs face a race against time to ensure their stadiums comply with new biosecure regulations being considered by top-flight officials. Ahead of football's planned return on June 17, clubs will be presented with a framework for their grounds in an attempt to minimise the spread of Covid-19 among those inside. Insiders say the proposals — yet to be presented — may cause substantial logistical issues for those with older or more compact homes.  Grounds such as Goodison Park, Turf Moor, Vicarage Road and Selhurst Park could struggle to comply with the regulations and may need extensive work to ensure they meet the criteria. The need for social distancing and ensuring areas are sterile will be at the forefront of the guidelines. And at certain grounds, teams may be asked to enter the field of play separately to minimise risk.  And while there is a confidence that those affected will be able to make the necessary amendments, the issue presents another barrier to overcome before matches can be held at their original venues. The Premier League declined to comment. But it is understood that following on from the early apparent success of new measures surrounding training grounds, similar protocols will be introduced in stadiums.  On Saturday, the top flight reported their latest test figures with zero positives. And they are understandably keen to try to minimise risk at stadiums. 'It's a set of measures that will form a biosecurity criteria,' a source explained. 'It is still being worked on but a lot of it will be similar to what has happened at the training grounds. 'That said, some of those with older and tighter stadiums may have their work cut out. 'The last thing the Premier League want is for football to return and for the grounds not to be as secure as the training grounds — and that is what this is all about. 'It may end up costing clubs quite a bit of money to ensure they comply, but it will happen.' A key area surrounds the layout of dressing rooms, and clubs with older stadiums will face a complex challenge. Players are being told to shower when returning home from training. A solution to how this will work after games will have to be found.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sportsnews/article-8374677/Race-against-time-Premier-League-clubs-grounds-ready-return-action.html  
    • Wouldn't be sure on that.  I don't want it to happen because I don't want the joy it will bring to the knuckle dragging clowns that travel with the team. The irony of them cheering on a team of black players while chanting the normal vile shite they do will be ironic at best. But this young team they have now is very good. Always need a bit of luck but the attacking talent is there and with the right approach could easily win something. I think the Euros going back a year will help them as both Rashford and Kane would have been not 100% this summer
    • Waddle always been a fucking hypocritical twat. Harps on about Brexit often enough. Pretty rich from a man that was happy to use his rights to travel and work to earn more playing for the match fixers in Marseille but like many of them fuckers he's made his money out of it
    • Frank Lampard got slagged for being far slimmer than the average British male. This guy would be the beer bellied one in the group of six lads in Corfu who quietly nips out of the club and hits the kebab shops to score some grub when the rest of the lads are chatting up the hairdressers from Brummie. Fuck chatting up birds when you can smash some kebabs and garlic chips eh Lukey lad.
