City of God - 8/10

+ Moved along at a good pace
+ Lots of characters and storylines
+ Some brutal scenes, with one in particular being quite hard to watch

- Some of the characters were difficult to care about or not that interesting

Saw a bit of this years ago on TV where it looked pretty interesting, but only just got around to seeing it in full. Very good though.

Silence of the Lambs - at the cinema - 9/10

A genuine classic and so quoteable and memorable. I much prefer Manhunter and the Hannibal TV series but it was a delight to see this on the big screen. The music by Howard Shore was the highlight.

A few people in the audience were obvious first time viewers and there was one gasp during the ambulance reveal.

Alien Covenant - 8/10

Genuinely don't understand all the hate this gets, sure it doesn't hold a candle to the original Alien but when viewed as a horror sci-fi film set in the Alien 'universe' it ticks all the right boxes.

There were a few facepalm inducing moments like slipping on blood while trying to shoot a newly hatched alien :lol: and "lets stick my face over this grotesque egg thing because the not creepy at all android says it's perfectly safe" and David's motivation for his actions were downright strange I was bored so decided to create horrific genetic monstrosities lol! but I quote liked it.

The outstretched arms scene and the ending big reveal are beyond gooseberry fool. Felt like it was a student film script.

That was my issue with it...it felt like fan-fiction. It was beautifully put together like all Scott films but the script was absolute dogshit.

That's good news. I loved the first one and the use of the paper people in the trailer (and the nod to the original series) for the 2nd made me very glad.

Watching batman v superman, as I never saw it on release. By god it’s gooseberry fool. It’s so boring, I’m about half way through. Might give up but determined to see it out. I think it’s worse than man of steel which I’ve seen twice all the way through and didn’t mind.

Split - 7/10

I mostly enjoyed this and thought McAvoy was excellent. I didn’t like how it went a little superhero/supernatural at the end though. I also am not sure the world really needs a Shyamalan Cinematic Universe.

La La Land

I thought it was ruddy brilliant. The ending was crushingly bitter sweet though. :(

Murder in the Orientation Express 4/10- More like boring on the Orient express. There's no intrigue or mystery as Hercules Poiroit questions one bland suspect after another. The ending would have worked very well if the set up hadn't have been so boring and I'd actually cared about any of the characters.

PS I didn't know the plot (outside the obvious) before viewing.

Justice League - *

Terrible, obviously, but at least it doesn't drag and there's enough Joss Whedon in there to make it just a plain old bad movie rather than a Batman v Superman-style travesty. The first half of it is worthy of two stars in fact, but then The Flash and Cyborg bond while digging up Superman's corpse (Flash tries to fist bump him) and it all goes south from there.

Justice League - 6/10

An odd film, it feels much like Suicide Squad, like a film which was made in the 90s before marvel movies got interesting.

I liked the pacing as compared to BvsS it moved along with a purpose. The plot is simple too which means it had some momentum.

Gal is exceptional, she can do more with a smile than the rest can do in a full scene. Batman has pretty much checked out, gone is his brooding and dangerous style, replaced with just some guy. Aquaman and cyborg both have some very Turtles movie dialogue which is really off and odd. Just feels very very dated and awkward.

The trailers showed everything, apart from 2 small bits and the re cut tv spots are terrible at hacking it all together.

The ending doesn't really set anything up, just kinda happens.

Worst of all is the CGI mess which is the final Battle, BvS, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman and now JL all have terrible cgi last battles. The intimate cap vs Tony at the end of civil war has power with little CGI. It mattered as we cared about the characters. This was just like someone sneezed into jar of power rangers movie moments.

So after countless trailers viewed, a lot of negative reviews read and not much hype. It's here and it's forgettable, Lego Batman is a much better Batman movie. And finally...... They own the hero theme tunes of Superman, Batman and wonder woman, they would have made some scenes 10 times better. Not using them is madness.

Spike Island – 6/10

A small film from a few years ago about a group of lads in 1990 trying to get to Spike Island to see the Stone Roses concert. There was a lot to like about this film. The cast were decent (including the new Doctor Who and Daenerys Targaryen), there were funny scenes/lines and the basic idea was sound. The soundtrack was obviously great as well.

But it was in desperate need of script editing long before filming. The idea that these lads will stop at nothing to get into the gig just went nowhere in the end and just fizzled out into nothingness. But even then the movie continued past the actual gig for another 10/15 minutes.

Meh.
