Good, tense film set in Scotland. Confirms my expectations of what it's like to go to a pub in Scotland. A very solid 7/10, possibly more like 8/10.

Got Moonraker on ITV4 now. It is so utterly, utterly awful but also amazing :lol:.


I mean, I can’t say I’ve ever been involved in the shooting of two people and subsequent Wicker Man-esque cover up after a trip to a Highland pub. :lol:

They spent most of the film trying to cover it up as well. You're all the same! :roll:

A bad weekend of movies for me

Mandy - 1/10
I cant believe i was hyped into watching this trash heap of a movie. Is "art house" just an excuse for 2 minute long establishing shots? Either way you can watch the trailer for this and see all the best bits. 98% RT score is an elaborate practical joke played at the expense of anyone who bothers watching it. Shite acting, shite story, shite everything.

The Meg - 2/10
Pure shite.

Charlie and The Chocolate Factory (2005) - 5/10
Better than I thought it would be but still not as good as it should have been. I've been reading the book recently with the kids and it is still such a fantastic read with so many excellent parts that should translate perfectly to a film, but this isn't up to the job.

The kids are all surprisingly good in it, but Johnny Depp gets Wonka all wrong and comes across as "sex offender" weird more than anything else!

Wow. Twitter has been going crazy for Mandy this week, climaxing with Guillermo Del Toro calling it "crazy good." I was really looking forward to it as it looked like (a good version of) Only God Forgives crossed with Rob Zombie's stuff.

If your idea of "Crazy good" is Nic Cage discussing what his favourite planet is with a woman who has the emotional range of a Door, then yeah, this movie is crazy good.
I dunno, maybe it gets better but i knocked it off after an hour as i couldnt stand much more of it. If you liked only god forgives, maybe youll like this, but all i got out of it was awful dialogue, and hammy acting, with visual effects that were just like someone put a massive purple filter over every single scene. I jsut dont get why 'art house' must mean everyone has conversations that have zero bearing on the plot and sound like nothing a real life human conversation would ever sound like

To date, this is the only film I've ever walked out of the cinema for, utter garbage.

Same, i also don't get why they feel the need to have extra long shots of nothing particular actually happening (some of which contain the 'characters' just staring into space).

The last Jedi. Perfectly entertaining and spectacular to look at but we've got to face the fact that no future star wars film will ever capture the soul of 4,5 and 6.

I'll give it 18 dolphins out of 25

Avengers Infinity War earlier yesterday. It was pretty good. Funnier than I thought it would be. Probably the funniest the MCU film in my opinion, at least from the ones I've seen. And there were quite a few nice poignant moments. Also geeked out a bit at the new Spiderman suit. That must have been based or at least inspired by the one in Superior Spiderman, which is one of the very few comics I've properly read.

Looking at the list of MCU films, I thought there'd be more I haven't seen yet. I kind of went off them, but ended up randomly seeing some more or tagging along at cinema trips when I had nothing else to do. Haven't seen Ant Man 1 and 2, Guardians 2 and Dr Strange. Oh and The Incredible Hulk but that's a bit of an outlier. Not really very interested in seeing that one though I'll probably check out those others in time.

Dr Strange is a good film and is a must watch so is Guardian's 2. I didn't mind Ant Man 1, i have not seen the sequel but i am the same as you regarding Hulk not interested in those films either.

The Hulk movie is actually a lot better than i expected it to be, Ed Norton was very good as Bruce Banner, though in the years since, the MCU seem to have forgotten the fact that Betty Ross ever existed.

Guardians 2 however, was just a brightly coloured CGI trifle.

White Boy Rick 6/10- can probably give this a miss, not boring but not exactly edge of your seat entertainment either.

Is the Ed Norton Incredible Hulk part of the current MCU?

Yes, the film is canon. They replaced Norton as he wanted to write Avengers or something - he wasn't happy with scripts etc.

Notting Hill 1999/10

What a time capsule this film is. I know all Curtis films are set in a weird universe where everyone in England was born to banker parents and casually cooks 4 course guinea fowl banquets like they're Tesco ready meals, but I'd always thought NH was a lesser example.

How wrong I was.

This is a film where the protagonist owns a 4 floored townhouse in the middle of Notting Hill but is framed as a loser...because his wife left him. He has a close-knit circle of loving, loyal friends but he is framed as a nobody. These friends have a competition to find which of them is the 'saddest case' when just a scene before one of them introduced himself as a stock broker and they're eating dinner (yes, guinea fowl) in another lavishly decorated London townhouse owned by two of them.

I also didn't realise how horrible Julia Roberts character can be. She really is awful to Hugh Grant's William, leading him on several merry chases while he sits and smiles and goes all Hugh Grant. It works, thematically, but I always remembered her as a very sympathetic character whereas she definitely has her antagonistic moments.

It's also entirely white. Entirely.

And for all of this, it's still a strawberry floating great film. The romance works beautifully, it's genuinely funny and the aforementioned dinner scene is still one of the warmest, most loving portrayals of the kind of friendship group everyone wants and which (almost) no-one actually has.

When I was a kid watching this I was crazy about the Anna Scott/William Thacker relationship and spent years afterwards fantasising the same happening to me. Watching it now, I instead find myself in total envy of the group of friends it portrays, and those intimate relationships with decade old companions. How times changes.

Also, we never find out who gets the strawberry floating brownie!

Huge plot hole.

Never watched Notting Hill - the whole thing always looked too smug for it's own good from what little I knew and so I have avoided it.

That said despite all reasoning making me think I should hate his films to the core I do tend to enjoy the works of Richard Curtis. With the exception of The Boat that Rocked which was a bag of shite.
