My Neighbour Totoro - 8/10

Watched this with my daughter this morning and she was entranced. Didn't enjoy it as much as Ponyo by still a very charming and watchable film.

Up next - Howl's Moving Castle

Moonlight - *****

A wonderful film. The cinematography is fantastic, almost surreal in many places, and does a stunning job of pulling you in to the story, almost as an observer from within Chiron's head at times. The three periods in his life and three actors approach worked brilliantly. The switch from ii. Chiron to iii. Black was especially impressive for just how much a change in his appearance tells you about what the intervening 10 years had involved for him. In fact, the film was so full of pieces where it wasn't explicit in telling you what had happened, and allowed you to piece it together yourself. You get the feeling that another film telling the same story would have spent a long time dwelling on Juan's death, but here it's only even alluded to twice, and never mentioned directly, but you still get a very strong feeling of just how devastating it must have been for Chiron.

I still feel like there's a lot to take in from this. I probably won't go back to the cinema to see it, but I can't wait to watch it again.

Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke and Nausicaa are all great too, although some bits probably aren't entirely suitable for younger children, I guess it depends on how old you daughter is though.

Don't let her watch Grave of the Fireflies though :cry:

She's almost 2 so most of the content of most films is beyond her, but she enjoys watching things all the same :lol:

Commando - 8/10

Not seen it for about 25 years. Very enjoyable and exceptionally 80s. So many quotable lines and a real sense of fun.

What we do in the shadows - 8/10

Very funny and unique spoof documentary.

I saw Logan today which was actually pretty great. God knows how much the studio paid the BBFC to get that classified a 15. :lol: Die Hard is an 18 and that was far less violent than this film.

I've never been particularly convinced by Hugh Jackman as Wolverine but it worked for me here. The film told a complete and satisfying story with a well-defined character arc.

Easily the best X-Men film ever made and in the top tier of comic book movies. The fact it starred comic book characters was almost incidental though and it could easily stand alone.

9/10

Film censors are far less strict than they used to be. Die Hard itself was actually reclassified at 15 a few years back.

Other films having had their certificates downgraded recently include Alien and The Terminator.

The girl with all the gifts.

Utterly brilliant, it felt like watching TloU in film version. :wub:

Fabian Delph is a banana split.

Manchester by the Sea 7/10

Super bleak, super maudlin, great central performance. Not much else to say really. It was pretty good.

Logan 9/10

Brilliant, well shot, nicely paced and has character at the heart of the film rather than being a set up for a action set piece.

And the emotional throughline got me.

At times it felt like the last of us, right down to the beard and reluctant road trip feel.

A superb end to Jackmans Wolverine.

Nocturnal Animals - 9/10

Well this film is amazing. I thought I was prepared for a disturbing beginning after the comments on here, but I still nearly turned it straight off. I'm glad I didn't because this is easily one of the best films I've seen in awhile. Superbly acted by everyone (it's hard to pick a standout) and it looks fantastic-I love how they captured the bleakness during the novel scenes. It all hangs together perfectly, with the novel intertwining with Amy Adam's journey of self realisation and doesn't ever stray into pretentiousness, which it could so easily have done. All in all, excellent.

Kong - Skull Island

9.5/10

Now thats how you make a monster movie. Set in the same universe as Godzilla (2014) this is so much better. A brilliant early set piece sets the tone with wonderful editing and a steady camera combined with amazing ILM effects. Kong walks tall and is a constant threat, but nothing compared to the other island inhabitants which make Peter Jackson's movie look like a child friendly version.

There is a big cast so a lot of people can die, and die they do. Surprisingly quickly and with some unique and memorable departures.

Sam Jackson is brilliant and plays the best character in it. The fact that 90% of the action scenes are set during the day means we see everything, unlike the recent Godzilla film.

Overalls it's a wonderful movie with a sense of wonder and killer soundtrack.

Make sure you stay til the end of the end credits for a marvel style expanded universe set up for Godzilla 2 ( directed by the guy who did Krampus and Trick R Treat) it's all set up for Godzilla vs Long Kong in 2020. Which he is also very likely to direct.

As far as monster movies go, it's better than Godzilla 2014 and King Kong (Peter Jackson) it's not the same level of amazement as Pacific Rim but it does have better pacing and more frequent action moments. Basically go and see it.

I went in knowing literally nothing about the film-like many I assume, as it wasn't heavily publicised as far as I'm aware. It's a seriously wtf am I watching moment...

The maze runner - 5/10

Interesting premise but clearly aimed at a younger audience.

Wasn't horribly bad but not great by any means.
