Fantastic film bringing the Tomb Raider series back to life. Amazing action sequences and decent typical Tomb Raider storyline.

That is very high praise indeed, would you rate it above Shawshank Redemption and The Godfather Part 2?

Probably my initial excitement after seeing it, I would maybe rate it an 8/10 now. Its a decent film with an interesting storyline but not near a 10.
I haven't seen either of those 2 films unfortunately :/ to compare.

Annihilation 8/10

While I didn't really find the story played out too well (I don't know if I'm too dumb to "get it" or if its just too obtuse), the visuals were super impressive, and I loved the Stalker vibe it had going on. The Bear scene was fantastic too.

Annihilation - 6/10

Meh, this is getting good reviews but it didn’t click with me. It wasn’t half as clever as it thought it was and there were too many stupid decisions being made.

Not bad, but not great.

Tomb Raider 2018 - 3/10

My word that was generic. Basically a gooseberry fool version of the game shot by someone who has only seen 90s adventure films.

Terrible closing shot, slow motion fall to death, obvious twist, flash backs to explain the twist as the audience is deemed too stupid, last minute save of characters. It's just beyond generic and boring.

No actual threat and it's actually very misogynistic, a woman who is constantly saved by men, motivated by a man, unable to do single task without a man, makes terrible choices.... For men. Could go into more but it's just so 90s, basically The Phantom, The Shadow, Zorro but without personality or a single good action scene.

Annihilation - loved the way it looked and the deliberate slow pace. Some really unforgettable scenes, and I'll be keen to give it a rewatch. 8/10

Bone Tomahawk - For some reason I've always skipped over this film thinking it'd be a generic western. It's certainly not that, and way better than I expected. I'd be tempted to give it full marks, but the ending felt a little rushed compared to the slow build up. Even with the 2hr runtime I wish it was 20 minutes longer. 9/10

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

I watch this every couple of years or so and I find it mesmerising. It's quite odd but with, in my view, wonderful moments of feeling. Jim Carrey shows another side to his acting skill and Kate Winslet is terrific.

"This is it, Joel. It's gonna be gone soon."
"I know."
"What do we do?"
"Enjoy it."

And the ending is just perfect. I love it... it's one of my favourite films.

It's great, isn't it. The slow and deliberate pace really helps build tension and then you finally see those freaks living in the cave, so weird. Horrific violence too, which is always a plus.

I agree its a great film but doubt I'd watch it again as for some reason it made me feel depressed for days afterwards.

Ready Player One

This is what happens when you let a couple of nerds loose on a film script with a big budget.

It comes across as though it's aimed at children, but derives most of its comedy and 'memorable' moments by injecting a steady stream of references from the 80s that won't mean anything to them.

Only manchild applicants need apply.

Yeah, I can see that in some ways, dude... but the way it ends up always seems to be a high point to me :) .

Yeah I can't rewatch Eternal Sunshine either for the exact same reason. See also: Speilberg's A.I.

If you're still in a Jim Carrey mood, I so recommend Jim & Andy on Netflix

Jim & Andy 9/10

A documentary on the scenes behind Man on The Moon as well as Jim Carrey himself. I heard that this was the "true" Kaufman experience compared to the movie going in and wasn't it just. Carey goes full method, continually staying in Kaufman and his characters while on set. He was an absolute nightmare on set but I couldn't take my eyes off it from start to finish.

Sounds like they’ve just been faithful to the source material....

That sounds like an interesting film, Floex... thanks, man - I don't have Netflix but I'll keep an eye out for it.

Thor: Ragnarok - 8/10

So they really did go full-on comedy with this then. I really enjoyed it, looked great and for the most part it worked. Bit of a shame that it lost some gravitas as a result, but that Hemsworth's got some good comic timing.

Loved the blue rock monster guy, he was hilarious :lol:

I enjoyed the movie and thought the blue rock monster guy was the best character in it. He was voiced by the director.

Best character would be a tie between him and the Grand Master. Goldblum was awesome as ever :wub:

I also loved the unexpected cameos of Matt Damon and Sam Neill during the Asgardian theatre production, so random :lol:
