Hellraiser 2 is worth a watch as it builds on what has gone before and feels like the second half of the first film rather than a new film. After that the sequels go downhill. Although one sequel explains where the puzzle box comes from so is worth a look too.

May be my favorite marvel movie, as a Hulk fan boy I loved every second. So so much to love, amazingly well filmed, lush music, epic cameos, brilliant effects, strong character arcs and actual consequences for the marvel universe. Just so so good.


Saw this tonight too, pretty much echo your own statements, really enjoyable film. My only slight gripe was that Goldblum wasn't as good as hyped, but that's being very picky.

Ruffalo's Hulk is so good, the CGI on him is now at a state where he just looks like an actor too.

Kubo and the Two Strings - can't really give it a mark until I've seen it again, but I'd say I can pretty comfortably put it in among the ten best animated films I've seen. Something about it just clicked - very melancholy.

:lol:

If you liked The Witch check out It Comes at Night. Not really a horror film, but it captures the same sort of vibe. Both awesome films.

This. Boxtrolls by them is also fantastic. Feels like a British film, almost Wallace and Gromit-like despite being from an American studio. Trufax: The main reason they can keep making super expensive and hard to make stop motion films is because the company is bankrolled by the dude's father - the owner of Nike.

John Wick part 2 - 8/10

Not quite as enjoyable as the first one but a damn good daft action film nontheless.

Its a very visually stylish film too, the action sequence in the art gallery looks superb.

Holidays - 7/10

Horror anthology based around the holidays. Strikes an odd balance between horror and comedy. Some of the images are actually disturbing and if they had gone pure horror they would have a classic here. It's still worth a look, as it's creepy and weird and very different. It's also on Netflix.

City of God - 8/10

+ Moved along at a good pace
+ Lots of characters and storylines
+ Some brutal scenes, with one in particular being quite hard to watch

- Some of the characters were difficult to care about or not that interesting

Saw a bit of this years ago on TV where it looked pretty interesting, but only just got around to seeing it in full. Very good though.

Silence of the Lambs - at the cinema - 9/10

A genuine classic and so quoteable and memorable. I much prefer Manhunter and the Hannibal TV series but it was a delight to see this on the big screen. The music by Howard Shore was the highlight.

A few people in the audience were obvious first time viewers and there was one gasp during the ambulance reveal.

Alien Covenant - 8/10

Genuinely don't understand all the hate this gets, sure it doesn't hold a candle to the original Alien but when viewed as a horror sci-fi film set in the Alien 'universe' it ticks all the right boxes.

There were a few facepalm inducing moments like slipping on blood while trying to shoot a newly hatched alien :lol: and "lets stick my face over this grotesque egg thing because the not creepy at all android says it's perfectly safe" and David's motivation for his actions were downright strange I was bored so decided to create horrific genetic monstrosities lol! but I quote liked it.

The outstretched arms scene and the ending big reveal are beyond gooseberry fool. Felt like it was a student film script.

That was my issue with it...it felt like fan-fiction. It was beautifully put together like all Scott films but the script was absolute dogshit.

That's good news. I loved the first one and the use of the paper people in the trailer (and the nod to the original series) for the 2nd made me very glad.

Watching batman v superman, as I never saw it on release. By god it’s gooseberry fool. It’s so boring, I’m about half way through. Might give up but determined to see it out. I think it’s worse than man of steel which I’ve seen twice all the way through and didn’t mind.
