Pacific Rim: Uprising.

Wasn't expecting anything amazing as i wasn't keen on the original, yet i actually liked it a lot more. It was dumber than the first film, yet the action was better (the switch from night to day meant i could actually properly see what was going on in the battles), and the characters were generally a lot more likeable.

7/10

Blade Runner - 10/10
Blade Runner 2049 - 10/10

This is going to sound ridiculous, but I broke down in tears at the end of 2049. I dont know even know why, it's the second time watching and it didn't have that effect the first time. :lol:

Starting to think it might be the best film I've ever seen.

I think decades from now, 2049 will be seen as the standard by which other sci-fi films are judged. Sublime.

Tropic Thunder - 7/10
I don't normally go for comedies but this was pretty good. I also don't really like Robert Downer Jr. but he was very funny in this, as was Tom Cruise.

Icarus - 8/10
Think somebody on here recommended this ages ago (Tomous?) but I've only just got around to watching it. Was very good though, and thankfully not all focused on cycling (which I thought it was).

Both Blade Runner films are long, boring and poncey films.

Inception -10/10

My favorite Nolan film and just a wonderful bit of movie magic. So complex but easy enough to follow. Brilliant casting and use of sound. Perfection.

You thought Blade Runner was long, boring and poncey and then thought "strawberry float it, I am going to watch the sequel!"? :lol:

I’ve watched Blade Runner three times now to try and understand the appeal. I love sci-fi films so really did make the effort since it’s supposed to be one of the best ever. I thought maybe i’d like 2049 more as it was more modern and that might help with the appeal, but I was wrong there too.

Have you tried watching it as someone other than Joer131?

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

Mission Impossible: Fallout - 6 or maybe 7/10.

Some good and involved action set-pieces but the in between double-triple-quadruple crossing is convoluted and confusing and very unsatisfying because of it. And the character stuff is largely uninteresting and the sentimental bits un-earned and the 'bants' and camaraderie largely unconvincing (and I think it missed a Jeremy Remner straight-guy foil).

And everyone in the film reveres Ethan Hunt (though thankfully not to the near-mythical level of the last film) but his 'character' nowadays seems to just be constant-mild-panic.

Also: How come in the awesome trailer it showed so many action scenes that were clearly cut? The head-on truck collision bit never happened. The swinging above the paris party never happened. That's some ruthless film-making!

I've never seen MI: 3 except the finale but remember that alone and out of context was engaging and tense. Just to check I watched a little of it the other day and the humanity of its characters and general drama seemed immediately better, even if the action scenes weren't as tricksy and toy-boxy-y as the latest. That JJ Abrams knows how to do action scenes with high human stakes man.

Casino Royale is still the best ever of this kind of film.

Arrietty(British dub) - 9/10

I don’t mind whether I watch the dub or the sub version of Ghibli films, and Film Four happen to be showing the dubs during the summer holidays.

Genuinely wonderful movie, and a fantastic interpretation of The Borrowers. I could watch it again right away.

Coco: 9/10

Looked an absolute state by the end of this, was in floods of tears. One of Pixar's best in years.

Deadpool: 7/10

On first watch this was an 8 but a lot of the jokes just didn't work the second time through. The highway action scene is still great though.

A Quiet Place: 8/10

Really well done, stripped back thriller. The monsters were a bit of a let down until very near the end when they really made the skin crawl but still.
