Get Out - 9/10

Mysterious, gripping and brilliant.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Skyfall - 8/10

I don't know how many times I've seen Skyfall and I never got bored of it. It's one of my fave James Bond films.

Baby Driver 7/10

Liked it but didn't love it, trying to reflect back on why that is. Didn't think the characters were particularly memorable, felt like it was trying to hard at the start and the ending fell flat to me. The sudden change to Kevin Spaceys character made little sense in that time frame. It's a film I need to go back and watch. There was a lot going on with colour and how it related to scenes which I would love to hear more about.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

I'm not overly into superhero films and I've missed a fair amount of the MCU stuff but I had a really good time seeing this. I thought Tom Holland did a very good job.

Spider-Man Homecoming - 8/10

Loads of Spider-Man action, loads of 80s references. Lovely music. A ton of John Hughes nods and 3 good reveals which were kept out of the marketing.

Such a shame the action scenes and all their resolutions were in the trailer.

A very good movie which is very watchable.

Spiderman - Homecoming. I did enjoy the first reboot with Toby Maguire and it does feel like we've had too many reboots for Spiderman, but this felt truer to the humour of the comic I used to read back in the late 80s. No focus on how Spiderman becomes Spiderman so one less thing to put people off. The only real minus point IMO is the suit, if you've read the comic you'll know what I mean, but if you haven't it is great.

Little to fault this film - action and fun. Make mine Marvel.

A solid 8.

Yes?

That's the second time I've seen Raimi's first Spider-Man referred to as a reboot. It was first major big screen adaptation of the series, how is it a reboot? Far as I'm concerned Homecoming is only the second

Baby Driver 8/10- Fun film with some great set pieces with a good but not great plot.

As someone else mentioned the following really bugged me and let it down

the sudden change in Kevin Spacey's character from if you don't strawberry float off I'm going to kill you to here's some money, run I'll hold them off.

Spider-Man Homecoming-

Like Wonder Woman I'd call this film charming with a very likeable lead.

-What's the point of renaming Ganke, Ned when Miles apparently exists in this universe? He was Ganke in every single way, even down to the Lego!
- Nacho as Scorpion! 8-)
-I'm actually optimistic about the next Spider-Man film afterwards, which surprises me.
-I liked Michelle a lot in this but that "My friends call me MJ" line was forced as hell. She's presumably known these guys for years so why now suddenly invent her own nickname? Either call her MJ from the start or keep her name as Michelle.

Spider-Man Homecoming 8/10. I thought they really nailed the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man shtick.lots of fun, layered bad guy, the 80s nods were fantastic and Marisa Tomei :wub: :datass: Only negative, most of the action has already been spoiled.

Spider-Man Homecoming

3/5

It's ok, but it's not revolutionary. Comfortably middle of the pack in terms of MCU films.

Holland and Keaton was great, and while they nailed Peter, I thought Spiderman fights weren't nearly kinetic enough (Amazing did this well).

The best friend was the worst part by far.

That troll post-credits scene though :slol:

Departures - 8/10

Good lord this was depressing.

+ Nice shots of Yamagata.
+ Excellent soundtrack.
+ Emotionally affecting.
+ Unusual but interesting premise.

- Could've been slightly shorter.
- Some attempts at comedic moments felt out of place.

Can anybody recommend any other good Japanese films?

Rashomon is great.

Skippy - There were two in the 70s. Nicholas Hammond played Spiderman. I'm old enough to have seen them in the cinema....
If you check Wikipedia you will see they were made for TV but had a cinema release outside of US.

Baby Driver - 9/10

Wonderfully made. Brilliant pace and supporting cast. Exceptional soundtrack and very good ending. Easily his best movie and most confident.

Only negative was the love interest was a bit meh.

Spider-Man: Homecoming - 8/10. Easily the best Spider-Man film made. The fight scene near the end was a little hard to keep up with, and a couple of annoying characters, but hard to fault other than that.

Blair Witch - 2016 - 1/10

Sheer boredom. A lot of first person stuff in it reminded me of Resident Evil 7. Expect the first 2 hours of Resi did it better.

A nice body horror sub plot is wasted. It doesn't so much as pay homage , it rips off Evil Dead, Rec and others. It's just very boring and silly.

Blair Witch (original) , the last broadcast, Cannibal Holocaust, they show how genuinely disturbing found footage can be.

This is made for teens to watch in the cinema and scream at. Cheap , loud and obvious.

Evil Dead did loud noises in the wood 30 years ago and did it better.

Thankfully it's only 1 hour 30 mins long.
