The Shape of Water

Yea, it was alright. Not as good as I thought it would be.

Love that film, one of my all time favourites, i've even visited a lot of the sites in Bruges itself (though i made sure to stay clear of the alcoves at the Koningin Astridpark)

Yeah it must've been a great advert for the place (murders aside). Bet they saw a tourism boom.

American Made

Based on a true story, but I enjoyed it.

In the lobby of the Hotel Academie, they have a huge In Bruges poster on the wall opposite reception.

The characters were right too, the bell tower steps are very narrow so that guy would have struggled to reach the top (also, you can't walk under or touch the bell, it's protected by wire mesh)

Alcoves? Yes. Sometimes.

3 Billboards 9/10

McDonagh's playwright experience comes to the fore again here, just as in In Bruge. He plays up every possible movie trope around the small-town revenge flick then violently veers away from them leaving the audience gasping in his wake. What a remarkable piece of work this is.

Also, saw the trailer for Shape of Water and realised I'm not going to be able to strawberry floating watch it over here in France as half the bloody thing is in subtitled sign-language.

strawberry float.

Iron-Man 3 - 7/10
Enjoyable but slightly unsatisfying end to the IM trilogy. Commits the cardinal sin of superhero movies (for me anyway) of there being hardly any of the actual super-hero. Far too much of Tony walking about investigating/talking and not enough actual Iron Man action. That said, what action sequences are there are decent enough and the "House Party" protocol at the end was awesome. I do wish they'd ended with Pepper getting the Rescue suit, or something similar though. Otherwise it's a decent adaptation of the Extremis and Five Nightmares storylines.

The Shape of Water - 7/10
I'm a sucker for Guillermo Del Toro stuff and this was no exception. Wonderfully shot and directed, I really enjoyed it. Gets marked down for being a bit predictable at points, but well worth a watch. Definitely deserves a lot of the nominations it's received. Though it'll be weird if a movie where a woman falls in love and has sex with a Fishman wins Best Picture.

Anyhow I watched Three Billboards - 8/10.

Engrossing, surprising and Sam Rockwell is really great in it.

McDormand was good too but perhaps a little too mannered for me to fully relax into believing her. Also her character talks 'to herself' out loud to a deer which is what people only do when written for drama. See also: Huge writing scrawled on walls by desperate survivors etc.

A great film all round, though.

Have we been watching the same film?

I dunno, maybe it's just down to a matter of personal taste but i just couldn't get into it at all, i mean it wasn't absolute bottom of the pile incinerate all copies trash like Rubber, but still.

Wildly overrated. It was entertaining enough in a 'twisty turny b-movie' kinda way but pretty slight, and loses its way in the final act. How it got a Best Picture nod I'll never know.

6/10

Get out.

Thor Ragnorok. 7/10. It was good but I wanted to like it a bit more. The humour got some special attention, and yes there were a lot of funny lines/moments (especially when Jeff Goldblum's character was involved) but I found it a bit weary after a while. I would have preferred a bit more of a serious tone, just a bit, especially so it was a bit more consistent with the prior two films. There's a scene where a seemingly innocent alien is obliterated next to Thor and they're rather flippant about it, joking about the smell his guts leave behind, Thor grossed out but not really angered or disgusted by this murder.

Enjoyed the characters though. Hela was great. I liked what they did with Loki. Was nice to have Hulk there but at the same time not have the film devolve into Avengers Lite.

The Harry Hill Movie.

It was actually really good. The plot is pretty non-existent, but I found it really funny throughout, with Hill's trademark craziness. Solid 8/10

Baby Driver - 9/10

Such a good film (aside from Kevin Spacey), soundtrack is excellent too.

[REDACTED] was pretty good in it, I thought. I found it odd when [REDACTED]'s character

Decided he was going to die for Baby near the end of the film. That didn't fit with anything at all and seemed out of place. I thought Baby was just paying debts off to him?


though.

I think he realised he was already going to die by that point so might as well try helping Baby, who he clearly had some respect/admiration for his insane driving skill.

Raw

Had my eye on this for a while after seeing Mark Kermode getting excited about it back on release. And it did not disappoint one bit. Superb central performances accompany a Carrie-esque coming of age tale which is disturbing, gruesome and bloody marvellous.

9/10

Also, First Kill

Anakin Skywalker tries to find his kidnapped son while Bruce Willis chases him down. Mostly crap.

3/10

Justice League - 6/10

Bit of a mess, but not as terrible as I was expecting. Considering the budget though the CGI was ropey in lots of places.

+ Gal Gadot is a total babe
+ Aquaman was alright
+ Flash was alright
+ Some nice effects

- Batman didn’t do much, and he looked far too heavy
- Cyborg was lame
- Parademons were lame
- Steppenwolf was lame
- Music was all over the place
- too much green screen and reshot scenes, very obvious when it was done too.

3 Billboards - 9/10

Really, really good. Loved the performance from the lead (can't remember her name), very funny, very sad and pretty brutal.

The Shape of Water - 8/10

Again, really good, just didn't think it was as good as everyone seemed to be raving on about. Loved the "baddy" though (guy from Boardwalk Empire), he was great. Deaf lady also had a nice arse.

A Ghost Story - 3/10

Pretentious twoddle. Lingering shots of nothing. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood. I also couldn't understand a word Casey Affleck was saying.

When i read the synopsis, it sounded quite interesting, but the reviews have put me off completely.

Thor Ragnarok. God of Thunder/10. I loved it, such an entertaining film full of jokes. One of my favourites easily of the MCU.
