Like Ecno above, I enjoyed that one song but thought the actual story was a bit meh. It was harmless enough though and the CGI was very pretty. My daughter liked the bit with the fish and chicken, so that's something.

Since the above post my daughter has made me watch Moana 4 more times and I've grown to like it a bit more with each viewing. The songs are all pretty great, especially the ones with the tribal language stuff, kinda soul-enriching if that makes sense.


My 16 month old loves it. He gets so excited when it's on and dances away to the songs. :wub: Just for that cuteness alone it's a great movie.

Baby Driver - 9/10

I love Edgar Wright's movies and thought this was amazing. I loved the way the music synced to the onscreen action and the chases were brilliantly done.

I can see why people wouldn't like it, but it's one of this years highlights to me.

I thought it was fantastic - would definitely agree with the 9/10 score in hindsight.

I especially like the chase sequence that ran in sync to Hocus Pocus by Focus(given that the song runs to nearly 7 minutes and was barely cut for the film, it was impressive that the scene never became flat or boring), it was genuine cinematic genius for me.

strawberry float me. I knew of it of course, but had never gotten around to actually submitting myself to the horror. It's a genuinely fascinating piece of work, a look through a mirror darkly into the twisted id of a man with some serious, serious issues. But it's also laugh out loud funny. The above mentioned cafe scene had me rolling with laughter and the constant sex scenes got funnier the more they appeared, but man. There's some deep issues being looked at here, however unintentional.


oh hai mark, hows your sex life?

The Jungle Bunch

This was my penance for getting to watch the football this afternoon...taking my 7 year old lad along to see this.

I suppose the animation was nice enough but the film itself was an incredibly soulless and turgid affair. It was a typical by the numbers animation that ticked all the required anthropomorphic tropes and just meandered from set up for video game set piece to set piece. The plot was illogical and confusing but was actually quite dark and twisted...the opening of the movie was basically a bloody terroist attack. It was a long 90 minutes.

3/10

American Assassin - 7/10

Michael Keaton is brilliant as always, good supporting cast, enjoyable action scenes and good pacing. Pretty forgettable but worth a watch.

Always thought the trailer of this looked fantastic but reviews have slated it, will give it a watch based on your comments mind.

Mother - not sure / 10

Yeah, this is a weird one. I went in spoiler free and not really knowing what to expect.

I'll go spoiler free but mention other movies it reminds me of, so if you know those movies then you'll go on knowing what to expect...

So it's an art house character piece but with big themes and music.

The movie follows a couple who are visited by house guests who alter the relationship dynamic and cause the female lead's world to fall apart.

It has a very strange tone and the camera is almost always behind the shoulder of a character. The sound is cranked up to 10 so every pan wash or paint brush on a wall is as loud as the dialogue.

Then as things build towards an ending, the movie moves away from an Hollywood take on dogma filmmaking towards something very different.

Spoilers on themes but not the actual events.

It all goes a bit, In the mouth of madness, dogville, (Them) think that's what it's called (French film) , silent Hill, rosmarys baby, trouble every day and Martyrs. Also a sped up camera create a very annoying and fake feel for later scenes.

It's a very odd change with some very out there moments at the end which will shock and upset those who are expecting a JL drama or a Hollywood thriller/chiller as the trailer suggests.

Hard film to review as it's not a fun watch but it is interesting and very well filmed and acted.

After viewing I read up on what it all means.... Now it makes more sense.

A film that is more interesting to talk about than it is to watch.

Which probably sums up the film more eloquently than a score could.

Having read all of the Mitch Rapp novels (RIP Vince Flynn) I'm really intrigued to see how close this is to the source material. I always struggle to actually imagine what Rapp would look like, either during his younger days or as the grizzled veteran of the later books. I guess...Sam Fisher? Something like that.

Mother!

Enjoyed this. I'm a bit of a sucker for Aronofsky.

Becomes bloody disturbing as it screams its crescendo towards the denouement. Do not watch if you are a sensitive pregnant woman.

Cracking performances from JL and JB.

Won't be for everyone (or most, probably).

Wind River - 9/10

I love this kind of film. Up there with It Comes at Night, with the way it builds tension and has this kind of undercurrent of strangeness and hostility. I remember thinking of Jeremy Renner as a B-list action guy, but between this and Arrival (and American Hustle actually, though the film itself was pretty gooseberry fool) I now really like him.

Alien covenant. I wasn't expecting much after reading lots of bad stuff about it but I thought it was great. Bender was his usual fantastic self and I enjoyed the story. I could live without the alien CGI though.

A solid 14/18

Legend.

Not as good as The Krays, (Kemp brothers).

6/10

Mother! 6/10

Metaphorical retelling of the Bible thatstarted well but ultimately disappoints due to a messy last hour that takes the story in a direction that I didn't really want it to go. The first hour was fantastic and really set up the intrigue thanks to Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer playing the role of unruly house guests very well. The last hour pretty much rendered all that came before it redundant which was a huge disappointment for me.

The ending didn't really shock me as I'm a hard nut when it comes to graphic cinema. It will upset a lot of people, but I reckon that's to the studio's credit. It's good films like this get a wide release still, but it's just not that great a film.

Think it would have irked me to have the premise spoiled like that before going in... might be with covering up the first part of your post.

I can't stop thinking about the film now that I've seen it. It was marvellous and I'll definitely be watching it again.

Can see why it is so divisive across the board, but bloody hell if that 10 minute odd sequence in the house where everything is going insane was not a majestic piece of cinema...

Much like Requiem for a Dream, it just stays with you...

Dunkirk.

Excellent. Superb use of plane and Ocean/ sea based view.
Amazing cinematography but oh my - the sound design and music. Jaw dropping st times.

Loved it. Need to see it again as I tired early on.

9/10
