The Autopsy of Jane Doe 7/10 2/3 of a great movie brought down by a poor final third full of stupid horror tropes. That opening 45 minutes where they slowly uncover clues during the autopsy as to how she died were by far the best. I think I would have preferred this as a straight murder mystery without any of the horror stuff. The actress playing the corpse was incredible, something I never thought I'd say about a performance that involves lying on a slab and being as still as possible. She managed to convey so much emotion and be terrifying by just lying there. :slol: Great use of sound in this film, too. But yeah, final 3rd was a disappointment.

Baby Driver 9/10

Hot damn that was excellent. Amazing cast, great car chases & outstanding music. Jamie Foxx plays an excellent bastard & I hope this is the role that cause Jon Hamm to make it bigger in movies 'cos he was excellent too.

Edgar Wright's best film? Edgar Wright's best film.

Woke up thinking about this, it's really stuck with me. Metal Gear Solid meets Predator meets Platoon meets The Matrix.

I want more :twisted:

This interview with Blomkpampt is also worth a read

That was fan-fucking-tastic, would have made an excellent full length film.

Yeah it would.

Imagine what would it be like if his Alien project hasn't been cancelled. :(

Glad to see Baby Driver getting a good reception. I haven't looked forward to a film like this for a long while. Must get along this weekend.

Split 8/10

Great script, great plot, great acting. Didn't really understand why Bruce Willis was hanging around at the end so thought I'd missed something but it turns out I just haven't seen Unbreakable.

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

Baby Driver (4DX) - 9/10

Obviously its just a great film, went to see it in 4DX on a whim more than anything, it was definitely worth it.

It hadn't occurred to me how random that ending scene would feel if you hadn't seen Unbreakable :lol:

Quantum of Solace - 7/10

It was enjoyable film except there were some shaky scenes which was a bit difficult to watch, but I enjoyed it anyway.

If this movie somehow manages to top Hot Fuzz, that will be an achievement.

Rec 2 - 5/10

Wasn't that big into this one, not sure I like the whole religious angle they brought into it. Kind of a disappointing sequel to a movie I was a bit surprised by.

So my wife is watching Wonder Woman and as avid House of Cards fans we note that Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) is in this film. The wife turns to me and asks me to find out what else Robin Wright has been in aside from HoC.

Did anyone else know that she was Jenny in Forrest Gump?! Absolutely could not believe it.

Despicable Me 3 - 5/10.

Actually very poor. No real funny moments, some good 80s. Music but the minions weren't really in it much and when they were they didn't amuse. Just felt very tired.

Loved part 2 and the Minions movie has some good moments but this was just very boring.

Went and saw Despicable Me 3 today with my family. :shifty:

I actually thought it was by far the best one. 8/10 for me. In contradiction to Gozilla above I was glad the Minions were in it less, because the main scene they were in was really funny.
