Ghost in the Shell (2017) 7/10

Saw the anime film at the cinema a few months ago when it got a limited release (decent but I didn't think it lived up to its reputation). I was surprised at how different this version was, I've never read the manga or seen the series so I dunno if they've taken stuff from that as well or what. Thought some of the changes were for the better and they were clearly done to make it more "Hollywood". They did a really good job of adapting the visual style of the anime and I loved the look of the city, but I wasn't really a fan of the new design of the spider tank which was pretty iconic in the original.

Well they strawberry floated this up didn't they? A fresh premise, two of hollywoods current most bankable stars, decent supporting cast (Michael Sheen is always great isn't he?) and all the CGI they could need. And they came up with a boring, creepy "romantic" story that once again, has Hollywood suggesting you can manipulate people and do strawberry floated up gooseberry fool to them in the name of love. Throw in some daft sci-fi and there's not a lot redemning this.


Passengers 5/10 - It was alright. A potential great story, poorly executed. And pretty much what Tomous said.

Has anyone made the mistake of trying to..."acquire" Split by M Night Shyamalan and accidentally watched this by mistake: http://m.imdb.com/title/tt3315656/

Literally the worst film I've ever seen.

I didnt hate it, but like you did think it was a missed opportunity with what they had available.

I think the ending would have been better if he had died, and then it cuts to a year later and shes opening someone elses casket.

I think it would have been so much better if they had revealed during the reveal that ...


He has done this many times before but the women kill themselves and he keeps waking up other women.

Eventually she kills him, then after months of being alone .....She wakes someone else up

I downloaded a strawberry floating movie about bowling while trying to get split :lol:

Watched Skull Island last night. 5/10
Good premise but a bit wasted. It was entertaining but could've been a lot better. John C Reilly was probably the best thing in it.

Everybody Wants Some

I could watch this again and again. Absolutely love it.

Having said that, it makes me feel horribly nostalgic and genuinely sad that those days are long behind me.

The problem was I didn't even know who was in Split, just that it was by M Night Shyamalan. And the boyfriend in the film I watched had a kind of split personality so by the time I realised I thought might as well finish and it got worse and worse and worse....

Arrival - 9/10

Loved it. Perfectly encapsulated what would probably happen right now if aliens landed on our planet today (i.e. military attacks).

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

"Why should we take in galactic visitors! Look after our own! We voted out to stop this!"

Great movie. I definitely didn't have any water in my eyes.

Ghost in the Shell (1995) - 8/10

Second time of seeing this. Made slightly more sense this time…I like the themes and the setting, and the style isn't too bad either. The soundtrack stood out this time which it didn’t before as well.

Gonna watch Innocence next, which I seem to remember confused the strawberry float out of me, but maybe that'll make more sense upon second viewing as well.

Ben Wheatley continues to be one of the best directors around. Easily his most accessible movie, too. Highly recommended.


For once I agree with Chalky. Just got back from seeing this. Fantastic. Some fantastic characters, dialogue and some brilliant flourishes.
Pissed myself laughing at some of the antics.

Free Fire - 8/10

Really enjoyable movie with a brilliant cast. Great music too. Very simple set up but it's so refined and well filmed. Will go on to be seen as something of a classic in the future.

Sharlto knows how to pick a good project and this is his best role since District 9.

Also the final shot of the movie is beautiful.

Rogue One 8.5/10. Better than VII in nearly every way. Only issue was the poor CGI actors that were used. Trying to bring actors back from the dead via CG just seems wrong, plus isn't convincing visually.
