Cameron has been hit and miss in his career. 
 

Aliens and Terminator 2 are two of the great sequels in cinema. True Lies is silly but hugely entertaining mainly because it doesn’t take itself seriously.

 

The Abyss and Aavatar were crap.
 

But the cinematic crime I most hold him responsible for is Titanic. All of that budget, all of those extras, all of that spectacular ship sinking....  ....and you waste it on a fucking love story! The perfect chance to do something immense like an Indiana Jones style adventure in the exciting setting of a sinking ship, and you waste it on a fucking love story! You will answer to me in the afterlife for that, Cameron. I swear you will.

It did seem an odd choice but the sinking scenes are incredible cinema. Just the love story is an unwelcome distraction.

Fuck sake. I did say I hadn't seen it. 

 

As bad as when Paul ruined Free Solo this.

Although it's based on true events, they were quite creative in how the events were portrayed. The boat sinking is still a controversial portrayal of these events. Some still contest that the ship actually had Olé at the wheel and is still travelling in circles.

Just watching a Mexican stand-off between a man pushing a wheelbarrow full of coal and a seagull.

 

Better than all these superhero shenanigans.

Titanic got down rated by a Christian film site for 'featuring death by drowning'.

Thats nothing. FG went the pictures to see Jurassic World then came on here to moan about the plot.

The Lighthouse- 8.5/10. Superb two-hander that I need to watch again to pick everything up.

Either you've been sniffing glue or you're watching The Lighthouse.

The Thing (2011)

 

Was quite surprised by this. It's a passable ode to the Carpenter classic, with some nice nods to key story moments, and a few original touches to flesh out the origin story. It helps that they reused the iconic synth tone to set the scene.

 

Like Prometheus, the scientists are idiots, and I would've preferred a little more subtlety in places, but it's a fairly tight 100 minutes. Like a cover version that's got just enough of the original to keep you listening.

1917

 

Not much I can say that hasn't already been said. Great film, very cleverly shot and powerful stuff. The cameos were pretty cool too. Tomen Baratheon and Robb Stark turned out to be brothers all along. 

 

8.5/10

Hail Satan

 

Netflix documentary about The Satanic Temple. Quite heart warming really. They're an odd bunch, but their arguments are sound and they do some decent trolling of religious zealots.

 

7 fat goths out of 10

A mate won 2 VIP tickets to the Download festival about 20 years ago so we went down for a weekend on the piss. Anyway, I was busting for a shit one afternoon so I went into the VIP area where they had these executive porta loos.

 

I'm stood there in a small queue waiting my turn when the bog door opens and out comes this scrawny looking cunt, trying way too hard to look cool for a gadge who's just had a shite in a plastic porta loo cabin. Anyway, I recognize this twat as the lead singer from this British Satanic band called Ackercoke, we'd seen them earlier that day.

 

Not one to look a gifthorse in the mouth, I go to this cunt, "Ere mate, are you the singer from Ackercoke ?"

 

He seemed chuffed and puffed his scrawny chest out a bit, "Yeh man"

 

"Is it true you're all Satanists?"

 

"Yeh man"

 

"Well what's it like to fuck your kids yer dirty little cunt ?!"

 

Dunno why but he fucking stormed off and out the compound waving his arms like a little girl, to the sounds of about half a dozen people pissing themselves laughing at him.
