The Founder - 8/10; Didn't realise there was shenanigans in the start up of McDonalds, Michael Keaton is one of my fave actors over the past 2-3 years, great film.

Ghost in the Shell (2017) - 7.5/10

I love the original animated version and had fairly low expectations that a live-action remake/reboot would work but this turned out surprisingly well.

There's a few unnecessary changes and simplifications to the plot which were fairly inevitable for a Hollywood remake but overall they did a decent job, I liked the inclusion of the the brilliant theme from the original film but it should have been used in the intro instead of just the credits.

Also, Scarlett looked as lovely as ever :wub:

Went to see Cars 3 with my lad yesterday. I would say it's the best cars film in the series. Entirely enjoyable and watchable.

Sausage Party - 3/0

Turned it off after about 10 minutes, load of rubbish. It's like the creators thought that swearing lots (to the point of distraction) equals funny. Just came across as tryhard and immature.

For some reason I watched the whole thing. It really is utterly awful, 3/10 is way too generous.

You turned it off after 10 minutes and still gave it 3/10? :lol:

I extrapolated the score for the first 15 across the length of the movie.

Didn't Sausage Party get pretty decent reviews across the board? I've not seen it yet though.

Dunkirk - 9/10 As a cinematic experience it was amazing. No idea how it will translate watching at home (unless you have a ridiculous sound system) but the sound in the cinema was pretty spectacular. An eerie and isolated movie.

The Nice Guys - 7/10 - Very fun. I know some people here mentioned it ages ago so I finally got round to watching it. There were a fair few laugh out loud moments too.

It was just the swearing, not the subject matter that annoyed me. It was excessive and undermined their attempt at humour.

I usually like immature movies that swear for the sake of it, but Sausage Party forgets to add jokes to that. Or maybe they were trying to put jokes in but failed horribly.

The song at the start was ok though, so they get 0.5/10 for that.

Shin Godzilla (2016) - 9/10

After a year of waiting I finally got to see the lastest Japanese Godzilla movie is from Toho Studios on the big screen.

Sadly there with not be another Japanese Godzilla film released until after 2020's Godzilla vs King Kong due to licensing agreements.

This was basically a modern version of the original Godzilla movie set in present day Japan. The director also made the two Attack on Titan live action movies and this is very clear in the desgin of Godzilla, looking less serpentine and more demon sent to destroy everything.

The film had a district 9 feel in early parts due to the way it's shot and the focus on one small character. The plot itself is very interesting as a natural disaster hits Japan and as the government and press try to explain it more things happen leading to the reveal of a creature. Unlike other Godzilla movies he doesn't appear as Godzilla at the start but instead a much smaller and stranger creature, as he is attacked and retreats he evolves leading to the best Godzilla reveal and arrival scene ever. Supremely creepy, unstoppable and surprising.

The rest of the movie is a ton of political chatter and Godzilla showing off how he can destroy a city in one night.

It a beautifully shot movie, amazing soundtrack and effects and some of the best Godzilla moments yet. It's easily in the top 5 Godzilla movies of all time.

A hard movie to track down but well worth a look for fans of giant monsters.

It's crap. But the orgy scene at the end is...well...surprising.

This. If nothing else you need to at least watch the very final scene. It's utter madness and still managed to shock me even in today's world of crazy internet content.

Atomic Blonde - 8/10

Not John Wick levels of amazing but a strong story, great cast, the girl from the new Mummy film being sexy and French and a very brutal fight scene in the middle. Soundtrack is a solid 10, 80s electo pop heaven.

This is the impression I got from the trailers, there's only so many times you're allowed to swear as a punchline...maybe once or twice in a film but it shouldn't be your crutch
