What is it good for?

Absolutely nothing.

Say it again.

At least that's the hope given there are a handful of watchable people in it. Also, a good soundtrack doesn't just consist of your favourite tracks all thrown at it in some kind of random order. It's on Amazon Prime BTW if anyone hasn't seen it yet.


Just to get this off my chest: I thought Suicide Squad was entertaining enough. I thought it was messy and naff but not boring and most importantly I thought it was earnestly naff and unpretentious.

Some films think they're good or somehow a cut above basic engagement and really aren't and that 'watches' worse to me.

E.g. I really really disliked how lavish and smug Spectre was though it couldn't cobble together basics of interesting action, believable romance or engaging plot. And that I find worse than an essentially well-meaning but a bit crap try-hard like SS.

Edit: Or maybe the incredibly low expectations made me enjoy it more who knows. But it was certainly more entertainingly odd than something super dull like CA.

I'm Batman/10

Loved it.

10/10

Hard to find the words to describe it, just incredible.


Have you seen The World at War? It's an absolutely incredible series, though some of it is pretty tough viewing because, well, it's war.

If anyone is even a little bit interested in this, I'd strongly recommend they watch it. The attention to detail and eyewitness accounts are just amazing. It's peak level documentary. :wub:

The Breakfast Club - 10/10

Saw this at the cinema tonight thanks to Odeon, it was bloody amazing. My second favorite film of all time and just so special. It has aged, or rather the modern style of movies is far faster and a lot louder. But this is vintage John Hughes. Next week they are showing Fight Club so Monday night may become movie night.

Wish my image sig would work

I've never seen Fight Club. It's one of several blips on my film watching record that I feel I really need to address!

Dammit people, the rules clearly state that you don't talk about it!

I don't think [REDACTED] has actually aged that well. Late 90s/early 00s films are weird.

I will just add though, that if you take the word 'fight', replace it with 'wank', then recite the rules, you'll find it makes for a rather amusing experience.

Solo: A Star Wars Story - 6/10

Largely forgettable stuff, the train sequence was neat, but the rest was kinda meh, also, what was with that whole...

Darth Maul thing? The timeline for him to even be in it is all wrong.

He survived after the fight in TPM. That's why he has super strength badass robot legs!

You need to watch the animated series to answer that question.

I hate the reliance on having watched some cartoon to understand that bit.

Yep. I'm all for bringing the EU into the main films but strawberry float man, at least give it some sort of relevance/explanation.

Aside from a couple of iconic scenes, I can't remember much of it.

I've only seen it once though.
