The Waling - 6/10; highly engrossing and kept me on the hook until the end, but I needed more closure and definitive answers.. Gorgeous scenery and thought the daughter played an excellent role.

Special Correspondents - 0/10 - atrocious and embarrassingly bad. Don't think I laughed once, the film conceit was worse than an episode of Allo' Allo. Gervais literally plays the same down trodden character in everything, just when I thought nothing could be worse than the David Brent feature :fp:

Valerian, and the city of a thousand planets 6/10

The CGI in this is quite marvellous. Probably the most impressive thing about the film. The opening 5 minutes are fantastic too and the Big Market sequence is worth the price of admission for its spectacle and straight up weirdness alone. The rest of the scenes on Alpha are visually stunning and have some truly unique sequences within. The story is fine, if obvious, and the acting is generally on the dodgy side (with Rihanna being the sole impressive performance, amazingly)

Saying that, this would have gotten at least another point, maybe two, if Valerian hadn't been the worse lead character I'd seen in a movie. The guy is a banana split, a misogynistic broflake who straight up sexually harasses his partner from the start to the very end of the movie. His presence actually degrades the characters around him, turning his superiors into ignorant fools and his partner into a weak willed simperer. He's genuinely awful.

It's not unfun however.

Luc Besson in a nutshell there. Doesn't help that Dane DeHaan turns everything he touches to gooseberry fool. :lol:

Atomic Blonde

A visually striking and stylish spy action story set against the backdrop of the fall of the berlin wall. Great use of colour, soundtrack and gnarly fight scenes (not forgetting the lesbian sex :datass:) but the plot loses itself fairly quickly. It seemed to be caught between wanting to be a serious espionage thriller and going over the top, unable to decide which way to; not glib enough to be the man from UNCLE but too flashy for John Le Carre-esque intrigue.

Well worth a watch but not something to come back to again and again.

8/10

Atomic Blonde 710 - Not as good as I expected, the plot was overly convoluted and the motivations weren't clear enough. I liked the gritty actions scenes, I thought Charlize Theron was very good in it and I liked the backdrop.

I also hate there's a list with all are agents on, plots. They make no sense.


They were also conducting market research about the film at the cinema I went to so I got to fill in a form with my opinons.

One of the trailers before hand was for The Snowman which looked very good.

Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 7/10

I thought that was better than the frist one easily. Ive tried to watch vol 1 two or three times now and i always wind up falling asleep during it, but this one at least held my attention for the entire run time. Drax was great in it. I always rate superhero movies lower than "regular" movies just cause i'm not a huge fan of them, so a 7 is a pretty good score for this.

Zootopia - 7/10

Pretty good, but very heavy handed with the REALLY SUBTLE race subplot.

Main bunny character wasn't as hot as the Caramel one, sadly.

The Beach 5/10

Somewhere along the line I'd convinced myself I loved this. I think it had something to do with the soundtrack, which is god-tier most of the time and the fact it really, really reminds me of my time travelling (especially heading off into the jungle to find the Big Cat sanctuary which was so well documented in the relationship thread).

But no. It's pretty, pretty shite and easily Boyle's worst. The first half is fine, but DiCaprio gives a career worst performance in the second half as he supposedly descends into his own mind. The bit with the faux Gameboy graphics remains one of the worst sequences ever put to film. They completely welshed out on the ending too. (in the book the remaining Beachers have a blood orgy and rip apart the bodies of the killed trespassers in a drug addled rage. In the film they...all go home).

So no. A load of shite that reminded just how good a song Pure Shores is.

Kong Skull Island - 9/10

Saw it twice at the cinema and now on Blu-ray. It's so much better on Blu-ray. The editing is the best it's ever been in a giant monster movie, the opening helicopter battle is exceptionally good. The use of colour, music choices, Sam Jackson and all the effects. Just a brilliant movie. Also the post credit set up for Godzilla King of the Monsters ticks every box for me.

Logan 10/10

Second time I've seen it. Improves on the second viewing. Perfect end to the story arc of Wolverine. Loved every second of it.

Watched GotG Vol 2 with the kids this evening. This is the second time I've seen the film and I enjoyed it a bit more this time. Still not as good as the first, but damn funny in places.

7/10
