Mute: 2/10

A complete failure on pretty much every level. Bad is, you know, bad but bad and boring is worse. This is two hours of absolute emptiness with no plot, no drama, no style and no strawberry floating acting. The lead character bobs through the runtime like a dingy lost in a sea of senseless nastiness, meaning the only dialogue comes from the villains, a paedophile and a psychopath the script is bizarrely intent on humanising. Spoiler: it doesn't.

It also contains the worst Chekhov's Gun ever placed in a narrative and one of the most ill-judged turns I've ever borne witness too. It uses strawberry floating paedophilia for shock value in a way that is so utterly tone deaf I'm amazed the actors were prepared to go through with their roles.

The 2 points given are for the nice looking futuristic Berlin, which plays absolutely no part in the proceedings.

Of Netflix's three recent blockbuster blunders this was the most disappointing, and the most reprehensible.

Just caught Ladybird.

I did really like it, but it's uneven. It's a slice-of-life style movie so nothing really happens or changes by the end, but the characters are very well drawn and compelling. It draws on a lot of cut-out teen movie tropes; some of which it subverts, some of which it doesn't, some of which get played so straight it's almost comical and the others that are just brand new takes on the trope. Either way, exactly where each character arc is going is usually interesting.

But it does drag. There's a shot where I genuinely thought 'Ah, roll credits' and then it just carries on and I was like 'Oh strawberry float, are we not done? Because I'm done'.

Soair....Soarie...Sa.... Ms Ronan is brilliant, because she's manages to convey being misunderstood by her similarly misunderstood but horrible mum, played by the one from Roseanne who wasn't Roseanne, whilst also being a selfish idiot teenager. She's neither a hyper pop-culture savvy teen who's just misunderstood by the parents who don't get her, or just an idiot kid, she's a believable realistic balance.

In fact, the whole cast is brilliant (apart from the Dad who isn't bad, but doesn't have any nuance to his character).

Yes, it's pretty good, but being blatant Oscar bait, it's second on most fronts to I, Tonya.

Death of Stalin – 6/10

I was really looking forward to watching this one, but it wasn’t as good as I was hoping. There were funny bits, but overall it just didn’t make me laugh as much as I was hoping.

Jason Isaacs was fantastic though and should have had more scenes.

Terminator 1 is a much, much better movie than 2. 2 is a great action movie but the slasher movie vibe of T1 is my favourite. Plus it has no annoying kids. I think T1 is to T2 as Alien is to Aliens

Agreed, Michael Biehn is in the better film in both series :shifty:

I have just watched 10 Cloverfield Lane on channel 4, I know it’s not a new film but I knew nothing about it, I thought it was really good until near the end when it goes from believable to silly

6/10

3 Billboards - 9/10

Loved this, other than it obviously featuring billboards, I knew next to nothing about it. Great performances by the entire cast and a great mix of comedy and tragedy. Lost it’s way slightly at the end, but overall a worthy contender for the Oscars.

Terminator 2 > Terminator

I wouldn't say that T2 is perfect, but it has aged really well. The stunts are incredible.

Yup. It was oddly pedestrian considering the calibre of the cast and director. Stalin's son's ridiculous insults were the only thing that got a genuine laugh.
