Thought that the special effects for the space scenes were spectacular. On the big screen genuinely felt like actual footage of Neptune in the final scenes. 

I'm looking forward to watching it again.

 

It chapter two. It's quite scary, not as much as chapter one. 6.5/10.

 

Kill Bill vol 1 way better than I remembered 9/10

 

Kill Bill vol 2 not quite as good but still 8/10

6 Underground. 5.5/10. Michael Bay does Mission Impossible. Pretty much what you’d expect. Loud. Brash. Paucity of story or character development. Helicopters in sunsets.

Rewatched the Batman Nolan films.

 

Batman Begins - 8/10

The Dark Knight - 9/10

The Dark Knight Rises - 8/10 (gets an extra point awarded for Anne Hathaway in skin tight outfit).

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, 60s Batman > Burton’s Batman > Nolan’s Batman

6 Underground. Not going to score it as I only managed to get through the opening action sequence before switching off. Bay by numbers, some good bits in the opening car chase but too many continuity errors which really annoyed me, I mean really basic ones for example there is a close up slow motion clip of the car they are in getting side swiped by a truck and you clearly see the wing mirror getting smashed off only to reappear less than five seconds later. Now Bullit had one of the most iconic car chases and that is loaded with such errors but you expect that of a film from the 60's, not in the days of huge budgets and CGI, just appears lazy. 

 

Add to that the dialogue was terrible.

The Irishman - Scorsese can complain that Marvel films aren't cinema but there was a boat-load of CGI in this one and it was way too long. A more ponderous film compared to his other mob dramas, this seemed to reflect the age of the director as it looks at the loneliness of the life and the damage it causes to the person.

 

They might have been better served having De Niro's character be played by a younger actor as CGI can't hide an old guy walking. It was good to see Pesci again, giving a much more subtle performance than he's done in mob films. Pacino has most of his worst excesses reined in for most of the run time and his Hoffa is both massive asshole and sympathetic man of pride. De Niro is good throughout although his de-aged self looks nothing like him.

 

Scorsese might say no studio other than Netflix would make this and that's probably true as Netflix never seem to employ editors and this needed one. 3 and a half hours is a ridiculous run time for a film so slow. 7 out of 10

Ha. There’s also a bit where Reynolds is hanging his head out the window to look at a woman they’ve nearly sideswiped, and when it goes to the exterior shot he’s nowhere to be seen.

Ad Astra - 6.5/10

 

A quiet, lonely but very well shot film set in space essentially really only about the relationship between an emotionally distant father and his emotionally distant son.

 

Loved how the film was shot and had some very interesting ideas but very unbelievable at times. Like Gravity but even more loose from reality. 

 

Loved that it had Space Pirates shooting laser guns.

 

It was ok, enjoyed it enough. 

It was ok. Rather ponderous and drawn out at times though. A lot of style and not a great amount of substance I thought.

Us  8/10

 

Loved this, a real un-nerving horror and another cracker from Jordan Peele.

 

Really well shot, very well executed idea, very creepy ‘creatures’ with a great twist at the end. Great score and very well acted. Lupita Nyong’o was especially brilliant.

 

Was glued to the screen throughout.


Would watch again.

Given this a go as I'm in a foul mood so I can get through a horror. 

 

Started well, very creepy particularly the family stood in the drive. Then I thought it went to shit. The dad was unbearable. The twist is great at the end to be fair although I figured it out a few minutes before. 

 

5/10.

There were aspects I enjoyed but I couldn't get past the ridiculous CGI and run time, won't be watching it again.

Beauty Mark  7/10

 

One of those down on their luck American family stories. Young single mother trying to hold down a low income job while also dealing with her live in alcoholic mum. Things hit rock bottom and she has to look at other ways of keeping a roof over their heads. 

 

Very tough to watch at times.

Zombieland 2 (kill this film with fire)

 

I can't even bring myself to rate this, I'm left asking why or why did they do this. 

 

I used to be partial to the zombie type films, post apocalyptic stuff too. I loved the walking dead, then it slowly rotted and killed my love of that genre. Zombieland though was a different slant on the whole thing, funny and original. The sequel has none of the feel of the first and is just absolutely shit, utter shit. Shit on a fucking stick. 

 

The Irishman 8.5/10

 

I watched most of this on a flight, and I quite enjoyed it. The de-ageing of the characters worked a little but old men still have the gait of old men so it never felt right. That's a small complaint though for an excellent film that felt like Goodfellas lite. It's a shame that De Niro spent over a decade making stupid comedy films when he could have been putting out things like this.

Ad Astra 1/10

 

What a crock of utter garbage this was. I’d have been furious if I’d have paid to see this, as it is I got to see it for free and I still feel cheated.

Joker - really liked it. Phoenix is fabulous. I was worried about watching it as the origins of Joker is so convoluted across comics and films. Taken as a single movie, it's fantastic - perhaps would have preferred it however if it were simply an angle on mental illness rather than specifically about Joker but it's still very well put together. 8/10.

The Rise of Skywalker - Deeper thoughts on the Star Wars thread but very safe, almost fan-fiction like finish to the series that over-corrects criticisms of the Last Jedi. Enjoyable, looked great in IMAX, but maybe don't make another Star Wars movie unless you have something different to say. 6.5 out of 10
