Jumanji - welcome to the jungle. 7.5/10. Good film, worth a repeat viewing when it’s on tv. You won’t feel disappointed if you pay to see it in the cinema. Cast really seemed to gel well together. Good story as well.

But yeah I agree. In fact, I can’t get over how bad it was.

Weak characters.
Shite plot.
Boring action/fight scenes.
Lacking the sense of scale of the previous films.
Dull settings.
Hilariously unconvincing, crowbarred-in love story.
Dreadful plot holes (of which there are several).
Lacking anything original (original and good, at least).

Edit - Okay, I was trying to quite BOR’s ‘can’t wait to see Star Wars’ and ‘what a disappointment’ posts there but Tapatalk won’t let me. :fp:

I can't bring myself to watch this because The Force Awakens basically put the final nails in my "love for Star Wars" coffin. I did see Rogue One on a flight earlier in the year and found that much better than TFA. Back in the days of the original trilogy I thought Star Wars was amazing (although I was only 7 when Star Wars came out). When the next 3 followed, the magic I experienced as a kid was no longer present.

A few years back I watched the original 3 on Bluray and found the acting and dialogue to be quite poor.

I don't think there is any coming back....

Yes?

Darkest Hour - 4/10, boring shite but worth a watch for Oldman's superb performance.

Watched a few recently

Blade Runner 2049 zzz/10
Looks lovely, but found it ultimately incredibly dull. I get that these people are androids or whatever, but did everyone have to act like a robot too? I imagine Ryan Gosling saying "whats my motivation for this scene?" and Villeneuve says "imagine Siri, without the personality"

Bright 6/10
This was nowhere near as bad as the critics said it was. I mean it wasnt amazing, but it wasnt the worst film ever either. Essentially Lord of the Rings meets Training Day, if you were expecting a masterpiece then its your own fault you got disappointed. Entertaining fluff.

Empire Strikes Back 8/10
Some of the dialogue and action has aged poorly, but its still an absolutely iconic movie and a great watch

The Force Awakens 8/10
Yeah you can write it off as a remix of a new hope, but doing that is ignoring the fact that its an really entertaining, enjoyable film.

I love that scene in The Force Awakens where they are firing the weapon. The fella doing the speech is ridiculously awesome in that scene.

Last Jedi - 7/10

It was enjoyable enough. People expect too much from star wars films. They're not the best films ever, they're just entertaining sci-fi films.
This one was too, maybe not as good as the originals, but certainly better than 2 out of 3 of the prequels.

The Void - 2016 - 9/10

Lovely 80s John Carpenter style horror movie. Well worth picking up. Best small horror movie I've seen for ages.

Rogue One

Man, this is a hard film to assess. THe final half-hour is great entertainment and makes up for a pretty boring hour in the middle. I liked the styling and most of the presentation but I found the main characters to be so dull and I think that's due to the script rather than acting ability.

The lead character, Jyn Erso, barely seemed to be alive throughout the film; this was a it terrific opportunity to see a female lead in such a popular movie franchise but I feel that the story and the lines have let her down. Jyn's main supporting character, Cassian Andor, fares slightly better although, again, the script is pretty mediocre. My favourite characters were the blind Jedi guy amd the ex-Imperial robot who assisted them.

There are some nice touches; the costumes and scenery are neat and Vader steals the show with a genuinely iconic presence. The surprise digital appearances by Peter Cushing and Carrie Fisher turned out far better than I would have anticipated.

I did enjoy the film although, for me, that is due mainly to the exciting action in that final thirty minutes and the well-done links to the original film.

6/10. Better than the prequels but not up to The Force Awakens.

Couldn't agree much more with this, althought I found the CGI characters were firmly in the uncanny valley. It's an interesting story and there's some decent world-building, but it does almost nothing with the characters, and it's only the standard of the actors that makes you give even the slightest gooseberry fool about them.

Power Rangers 2017 - so very mediocre. Some nice effects but it's beyond dull at times. Also ruined Goldberg and the practical suit effects which were timeless and full of charm.

The Foreigner.

Jackie Chan in one of his more serious roles, taking on the IRA after his daughter is killed in a terrorist explosion.

Pretty good film with a more realistic take on the martial arts as opposed to Chan's trademark slapstick choreography.

7/10

Thor: Ragnarok
Spider-Man: Homecoming
Guardians of the Galaxy vol. II
Lego Batman
La La Land
Baby Driver

Worst:
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
Assassin's Creed - ventured into so bad its good territory

Beauty and the Beast - appalling on every level

Unforgivably I haven't seen Moonlight, Blade Runner or a number of others.

Kong: skull island - 8/10. Much better than I expected, really enjoyed it. I liked the various homages to Vietnam war films as well.

Had a bit of a film spree over Xmas;

The 400 Blows - 5/10 - mislead by the title :lol: No, a French film following a child rogue.

Annie Hall - 7/10, really liked the style (first Woody Allen film) dialogue reminded me of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Bright - 5/10 - not as bad as the pundits say. Felt like parts of iRobot and Bad Boys mixed with an Orc.

Dunkirk - 8/10 - lost some of the effect at home, the firing guns in the cinema were really scary :shock:

The Foreigner - 7/10 - Best Jackie Chan film in years.

The Handmaiden - 7/10 - very good, did not read up on the film plot and was (pleasantly :nod: ) surprised by the films adult themes.

How To Train Your Dragon - 5/10 - standard animated fare, with few inspired parts.

It's A Wonderful Life - 6/10 - enjoyed the film but expected a masterpiece after all the hype I've read. My expectations were too high.

To Kill A Mockingbird - 6/10, WTF is Boo Radley's character about?! Like you'd let this guy round any sort of children :lol:

Lego Batman - 7/10 - tonnes of nods to everything Batman, way better than I expected. :toot:

Monster's University - 6/10; Original still the best.

Moonlight - 3/10 - difficult to watch to the end, tedious!

The Pianist - 9/10; fantastic film. Brutal in places, I've put off watching this film for years thinking it was going to be horrendously boring. Adrien Brody is just superb :wub:

The Red Turtle - 6/10; interesting animation but would have liked some clarity and more information during the film. Reminded me of RiME.
