The Accountant 7/10

Not as good as I'd heard.

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

Good brutal action but the story was a total let down.


How so?

I thought it was a great story with a lovely arc for both Logan and Charles.

I didn't really like the plot with them being so weak and where has this come from? Last time they were all okay and doing fine and sunndenly they are down in the dumpster?

In between films they were both involved in a very very serious rafting accident that left them both weak and just shadows of their former selves.

They quite clearly explain that Xavier was suffering mental degeneration and lost control of his powers killing a number of xmen. The government used Caliban to track down and kill the other remaining mutants. As for Logan himself his powers were on the decline since the events of The Wolverine, I thought they explained that fairly well and the opening scenes set this up. He is old, tired and struggling to find meaning in his life aside from helping Xavier.


I felt the best part of the story was his relationship to Xavier and the father son bond. The fact he tried to hide the terrible past from him to spare him from remorse. X-23 comes along and gives him a new purpose.


This element reminded me heavily of The Last of Us. Cynical and tired old man who finds renewed purpose in caring for a daughter figure who is both capable and also in need of support, even once his obligation is complete to her he finds he has developed a bond and actually cares too much to let her go.

Thanks! I guess I wasn't paying any attention to what was being said at the beginning. Would have been good if they had done a flash back scene and shown it happen.

They refer to it a few times in passing without directly saying it. Moments before Xavier dies he has clarity and remembers what he did. It's heartbreaking and very well acted.

Get Out 9/10 Someone told me to go into this not knowing anything about it and I did. Avoided the trailer and TV spots and it was well worth it. All I knew was it was about an interracial couple visiting the girl's parents.

Fantastic movie and nothing like I was expecting. VERY relevant to what's happening in America right now. I loved the little references to to whats going on with the plot very early in the movie that you only realise when it's over.

Jordan Peele is gonna have a great directorial career is this is any indication.

The Messengers.

How great would Dylan McDermott be as Joel if they made a Last Of Us film?

Pretty good film it was,quite old but a decent watch it certainly is, creepy, freaky and violent, what's not to like.

Logan - 8/10

Dafne Keen is just a little ball of pure rage. :lol:

A great pair of central performances ties everything together, it's easily the best Marval based film anyone's made.The violence and gore instead of feeling gratuitous as I expected it would seemed completely in keeping with the rest of the film. The language it turned out felt sort of over the top at times.

I liked the idea that mutants, instead of being the next step in human evolution have very quickly been effectively eradicated within twenty years. Having the comic books part of a naive hope for the future was a great little touch.

The Nice Guys. Fun, but was expecting to enjoy it more based on the comments here. Would like to see a sequel though.

A Letter To Momo 6/10 Nice ideas, but it never really fulfils what it sets out to do. Very Ghibli, but Ghibli does it better.

Logan 8/10 Surprised how good this was, more like a Western than a comic book film, and far more interesting for it.

Kong: Skull Island 5/10 First half sets things up nicely, mixing Apocalypse Now with Jurassic Park. When things need to go up a notch, that's when it falls apart.

Have you seen Kiss Kiss Bang Bang?

It's not connected to TNG, but it's a similar style, location, theme etc from the same director with Robert Downey Jr and Val Kilmer. I prefer TNG but Kiss Kiss is very good too.

It also has one of the hottest women I have ever seen.

Saw Rogue One last night. Really enjoyed it. More than the last one.

London Has Fallen: Combat 18/10

Straight up racist. Butler gives a smackdown-speech to the film's villain which is him screaming that all brown people will have been wiped out in 1000 years, and that the white man is king.

Genuinely disgusting stuff.
