Kingsmen: The Golden Circle: Couldn't Finish It/10

Watched the first Kingsmen last night, tried this one this evening. What a load of shite. As soon as the drop-out from the first film returned with a strawberry floating robot-arm I knew something was up. It only got worse from there, with Julianne Moore doing Karen from Will and Grace as the villain alongside a pair of robot dogs, Elton John and some cannibalism. Then it got to the part where Eggsy has to sexually assault a woman in order to plant a tracking device, as part of what has to be one of the most ill-judged and poorly written sub-plots in years, and I was out.

What a load of utter bollocks.

Agreed.

The first one was so much better and I hoped the sequel would be better, but it was just dragging on and on until the end.

Rubbish.

I thought the first one was lacking something too.

While were on this subject though, i had a wander down Savile Row a while back, and the gold Kingsman sign is still by the entrance to the tailor shop.

The first one is just as bad and has that whole "ill let you strawberry float me in the arse if you save the world" bit.

Read a review of the The Golden Circle that was just "If you thought the anal sex joke was the highlight of the first Kingsman, you'll enjoy the second."

I enjoyed the first. Besides that final joke, which almost but not quite managed to ruin the whole thing, it's a fun romp with great action scenes. The second has nothing going for it at all, and seems to be actively aimed at pissing off those people who thought that final joke was gooseberry fool.

I completely missed the anal sex joke in the first Kingsman, and I was looking out for it!

She was hot though and probably had a nice bleached balloon knot :datass:

The first was great I thought.

I really liked the single shot action sequences-the fight in the church with Colin Firth was really well done.

The Hitmans bodyguard - 3/10

I don't understand why this film exists. Was it meant to be a comedy?

I enjoyed it, it’s not setting the world alight with its innovation but there’s a fun little film in there for me.

My main issue is that everything blows up. I mean everything!!!! It's almost as if red barrels were placed next to fuel tankers for no other reason to be shot at.

Now with that in mind, it would seem that it was a comedy film. However, the character played by Gary Oldman (who appeared to be a Russian gangster from Eastenders) certainly didn't think the film was a comedy and he performed some very dark and twisted non comedic actions.

I felt that the film was at odds with itself.

I was more offended by the terrible knowledge of British geography the filmmakers seemed to have.

I found it very odd that they had them drive all the way down to the Channel Tunnel when they could've gone over to Newcastle and got the ferry straight to the Netherlands, that's for sure.

As an aside, I never put two and two together to make The Hague = Den Haag before I watched this, because I'm a spanner of the highest order.

In the last Transformers film, there was action scene supposedly set in the UK, yet one of the quick cuts almost certainly had american signs and features in it.

Fast & Furious 6 also had a terrible knowledge of London's layout, though that was always gonna be eclipsed by the fact that there was a street race meeting taking place in the courtyard of the foreign office.

Oh and don't even get me started on the first Mission Impossible movie.

I was just surprised they were near Manchester and in the early hours of the morning managed to hitchhike in a minibus that just happened to be going to Dover.

Jeepers Creepers 3..... 0/10

Spoilers throughout

First film was brilliant and fun, second had an amazing opening but went nowhere. This is made for tv level effects but in HD so they look worse. A man in a crap suit, the worst slow mo ever, boring, no idea where it's going and trying to make the villian scarier by upgrading his truck to be Kit from Knight Rider, by giving him a red t shirt and by making him pull faces....

Also the film doesn't have an ending, it just ends because it runs out of budget.

It feels like a student film compared to the first. Amazingly it's from the same director as the first two. It links to both at the end but one is a crap copy of a much better franchise (Final Destination) and the other just makes you go.... strawberry float the girl from first film got old.

Life of the Party - 5/10

After 20 humourless minutes it gets going and has some nice characters and a few funny scenes. Terrible and obvious cameo near the end and a flat ending too. Needed a lot more jokes and to take what was there much further.
