Pretty enjoyable, quite emotional as well.

My Cousin Rachel

Bit of a case of blue balls, this one. I wouldn't watch it again.

Got very excited when I saw a trailer for Murder on the Orient Express and that was followed up with a stunning trailer for Dunkirk. It looks incredibly good.

Assassins Creed - 3/10, drivel - had to watch it twice as first time fell asleep after 35 minutes.

Mullholland Drive - ?/10 - enjoyed the ride but wtf was that all about.

My Scientology Film by Louis Theroux - 8/10 - brilliant if you like Theroux you will love this, how an earth does someone like Tom Cruise get involved in something like this :fp:

Now You See Me 2 - 5/10, barely coherent sequel loved the 1st, felt very let down by this and no Isla Fisher :(

Passengers - 6/10, Michael Sheen is fantastic in this and would have liked to have seen Lawrence and Pratt's
final days on the ship


Railroad Tigers - 7/10, enjoyable Asian made Jackie Chan flick, one of his best over recent years.

The Take (aka Bastille Day) - 8/10, solid action film that is basically a feature length episode of Luther.

Tower Heist - 6/10 - not a fan of Ben Stiller but gave this a try because of the cast and wasn't disappointed.

Transformers 5, the last knight - 3/10. But did I enjoy? Yes I did. And I would give it ther watch. As usual the effects are amazing however the story telling was possibly the worst yet. It felt all over the place, at times it felt like bits of the film were missing. One think that bothered me was the costant changes of wardrobe by the main characters in between scenes. They would jump in a car, or on a plane and when they get out they are wearing different clothes. I've heard talk that up to 40 mins of footage was cut which would explain a lot of the problems. A lack of closer on a number of scenes was also annoying, particularly fight scenes. You rarely saw a conclusion to a battle and then characters like grimlock just vanished, never to be seen again. The film felt like bay spent a massive amount of money shooting big explosive scenes and then paramount told him that there was enough money left to finish off the cgi so they just cut big scenes.

Overall I think it needs a reboot. Five films in ten years is god going for a franchise. Most established franchises only get 3 films if they are lucky before being rebooted. However that's clearly not happening soon as there is at least a bumblebee prequel in the works. Which I hope may actually be better as Michael bay is currently not involved.

A bright note though was Anthony Hopkins, who seemed to have a blast making the film.

The Belko Experiment 8/10. That was a whole lotta fun. Think Battle Royale meets Die Hard by way of Cabin In The Woods written by James Gunn. It was right up my alley. Great cast of recognizable character actors and some highly entertaining violence. I loved it.

Very recommended.

The Thing (John Carpenter's) 10/10

A regular watch, but it never stops being as entertaining, or disturbing, as the first time I saw it. The effects are still strawberry floating amazing and really have not aged at all. The physical presence of these monstrosities trumps any CGI I've ever seen. And young Keith David :wub:

The TV series, Sarah Connor Chronicles, had human collaborators working with the machines. It was far more interesting than anything 3, Salvation or Genesys came up with.


Man that show was ace. So pissed off with the cancellation, it ended at a really interesting place.

Get Out - 9/10

Thoroughly enjoyed this, it was tense, creepy and made me feel quite uncomfortable at times, in places it almost reminded me of the Shining in that regard. Some elements were perhaps a little predictable such as Rose being in on the whole thing. but didn't really detract from my enjoyment of the film.

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. Will happily watch it again at some point.

Transformers was really really bad.

Like why did some characters even exist? Why was it so long? Nothing happened!

I liked how the young girl seemed really important and then just vanished for the second half of the film. It really seemed like they cut massive portions of the film out or just didn't film planned scenes.

The prequel from a few years ago is good IMO. I watched it a while ago and was suprised how good it was if the directors could of done what they wanted to do with movie but the studio execs stuck their nose in alot during the making of it. Plus it has Mary Elizabeth Winstead :wub: :wub:

I'm a huge JC The Thing fan (My all time 2 favourites are The Thing and Bladerunner, both released in 1982, the year I was born) and even loved the 'prequel' especially the end credits scene which ties directly in to the start of the JC movie :wub: still have the steelbooks for both films sealed. Back to back Thingathon might just be in the works soon!

First time I watched it I must have been around the age of 3 and it was my uncle who let me watch it. Didn't like dogs for a couple of years after that :dread:

Baby Driver

Fantastic, so much fun and yet also gruellingly tense; I never knew Jamie Foxx could be so intimidating!

9/10

Watched Okja tonight on Netflix. I've been looking forward to this, being a fan of Jon Ronson, Jake Gyllenhaal and Korean cinema. Started off well - charming and Ghibli-esque. 2nd act was action packed and fun, but it was ruined by a grim 3rd act and huge plot hole.

Second of Neill Blomkampt's experimental films is out: Firebase



The first one, Rakka, in case anyone missed it:



Both are extremely good. I think I preferred Rakka, it has more dramatic imagery and was a better rounded standalone, but Firebase is a fascinating idea (as one of the Youtube comments points out, it's got some definite MGS3 vibes). He's stated that these are very much proof of concept pieces and that full treatments have been written for each of them. He's going back to his roots basically with how Alive in Joburg became District 9. Speaking of:
