I thought this was lovely. Not sure why I haven't seen it before, but I'm glad I watched it. It goes very sci-fi in the last half, but it pulled off the shift in tone. I couldn't really guess what was going to happen at that point. I think it handled the later scenes very well. It could have fallen pretty flat, but it didn't.

Thumbs up.

Dunkirk - hhhhhmmmm

Not sure how to rate this one. I loved the use of sound, best bullet sound effects I've heard in ages. Loved the stuff on the boat and the spitfire moments. Loved the build up towards the end. Loved the sense of danger in each scene.

However I wasn't keen on the use of time within the film or the sense of scale. Which was tiny, I counted 25 boats at one point and it never felt like more than 2,000 troops. It really needed a few long shots of tons of soldiers and boats.

Its a lot shorter than his other work and felt a lot rougher around the edges too.

Worth a watch but not a patch on his best films.

Also Harry was very good in it, didn't expect that at all.

Wish my image sig would work

Mad Max Fury Road - 8/10

+ Looks great
+ Plot is kept simple which works well
+ Some very good action sequences
+ Soundtrack is effective at ramping up tension and complimenting the action
+ Courtney Eaton :datass:

- Some of the action scenes went on for too long

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.

The film is called Sausage Party.

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.
