Bright = 3/10. It has an interesting world but then spends literally no time at all explaining any of it. Either make a fantasy film or a buddy cop film or a homage to Assault on Precinct 13 but don't try and do all of them in the space of a couple of hours because you'll end up doing none of them particularly well. Also, don't spend most of the time on the least interesting aspect (the Assault on Precinct 13, make it through the night bit) and ignore the other stuff. I mean, there was a strawberry floating dragon flying around the skies of LA and it was literally on the screen for a second. I get that the fairytale aspect is supposed to be everyday life for the characters in the film but the audience needs some kind of context. As a precursor to a film series (though it would work better as a TV series), it did little to set the scene.

War of the Planet of the Apes - 8/10

It kinda sags in places on a second viewing, but it's still a good show. It does tonnes of stuff really well.

The CGI is strawberry floating jaw dropping at times. I can't remember the last I was really bowled over by CGI. Dawn and this one push the envelope so much.

I watched it last night and agree, it was far better than I expected it to be.

Kong: Skull Island 8/10

Really enjoyed this(I have sky movies too). Toby Kebbell was really good, as was John C Reilly and most of the supporting cast. There was a bit with a giant buffalo trapped under a helicopter - the buffalo looked a bit like my dog and I freaked out. :oops:

Round-up of my free month of Now TV movies.

Life : 6/10 - Pretty decent Alien knock-off with some great ideas but ruined by an awful CG beastie. As per usual.

Split : 6/10 - Semi return to form for Shyalaman I guess, but pretty standard slasher fare, boosted by McAvoy clearly relishing playing multiple roles. Loses a mark for that strawberry floating incomprehensible bullshit at the end. They might as well have had Yoda walk in and called it a sequel to Star Wars

Jason Bourne : 7/10 - Wasn't bothered about seeing this at all, but it was pretty darn entertaining. Call it a day now though fellas eh?

Inside Out : 8/10 - Well this didn't quite live up to my (admittedly fairly lofty) expectations. Weirdly for a Pixar film this didn't work as a kids film at all, the convoluted plot being totally lost on my seven year old. Some sections (particularly that abstract stuff in the middle) didn't work, and it wasn't that funny. Turned me around at the end with a charming denouement, and the closing credits had some hilarious moments. Still, mid-tier Pixar really.

Assassin's Creed : 3/10 - Why the hell do videogame films not work? Once again this completely disregards the source material in favour of muddy CG fight sequences devoid of tension. Bollocks.

John Wick 2 : 7/10 - Entertaining, but not a patch on the original.

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2: 8/10 - Great sequel to my favourite Marvel movie. A little bit patchy in places, and not enough Drax for my liking, but this was hugely enjoyable and laugh out loud in places (Baby Groot fetch quest had me in tears).

Logan Lucky - 6.5/10

It was little disappointing.

Agree with your sentiment, I thought the idea was good but the execution flawed. I still enjoyed it though 6/10 - Hopefully in the recently announced sequel they'll be able to flesh out the universe.

The Dark Tower 6/10- Was fine, seemed like an interesting idea but was a bit simple.

Jumanji (2017) 7/10- Nothing special, lacks something compared to the original but doesn't bring the name to shame.

The Greatest Showman 8/10 - I like musicals so probably take one off if you're ambivalent towards them, but enjoyable film with some good songs.

Rock of Ages 6/10- Enjoyable enough, liked Cruise's performance.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - 6/10

I liked some of it, but I disliked more of it. Disappointing. I’m going to sleep on it and share my thoughts properly tomorrow (bet you can’t wait!).

Logan

Pretty damn cool. I'm guessing the tasty violence was allowed due to the success of Deadpool? Really good though. I only ever saw the original Xmen movie.

I'd heard incredible things about this and I'm afraid to say it just couldn't live up to the hype. I definitely enjoyed it though but I'd give it a 6.5/10

Xmen 2 and Days of Future Past are pretty good. I suggest watching them.

Airplane 7/10- I think this may have been scored a point o two higher had I watched it 40 years ago, but all the jokes have been repeated ad nauseum since its release.

I don't feel at home in this world any more 6/10- Had high expectations watching this, which made be feel somewhat disappointed. It's still fine though.

Watched this last night and agree. It is a good film and nothing more. I guess people are so used to poor attempts at horror that when something comes along that is a solid film, it is seen as something more than it is.

I give it a 7 though.

Yes?

Bright. Literally nothing/10

One of the worst written, most badly judged piece of gooseberry fool films I've seen in years.

Nightmare City :| It was like something MST3K would watch but y'know, without their funny commentary to keep you entertained. Cannot believe someone thought I would like that gooseberry fool.

Fate of the Furious.

It was a little silly action but I rather enjoyed it a lot. I think Paul Walker would approved this. It was a nice touch at the ending.

Still really like this on the second watch.

One thing I'm not sure about though:

Why do they have the main guy stumble upon photos of the girl with all of the other black people? A) it ruins the twist and B) it makes it odd that he then still seems to trust her when he's trying to leave :?.
