And that's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. I love the rougher, tougher portrayal of Ghostie in this movie. The flames really are sensational; they even move in a realistic way alongside Cage's body movement. The story is a little better than in the first film albeit it's still a wee bit disappointing. The maniacal personality of Ghostie is a little over-done but the menace that he exudes is cool; he looks like a total badass. And the fiery chains, which were disappointingly slow in the first film, are now far more impressive.

I still have to admit that this film is more for fans of the Rider than for newcomers and, even then, some aspects are weak. Even so, the allure of seeing the flaming Ghostie kickin' butt is a big attraction and my verdict is [6].

Bad Times at the El Royale- 8/10

The film was too long and there were pacing issues (the whole third act could go) but I really enjoyed this. Shame how little Jon Hamm was in it though.

Bad times at the El Royale 8/10: Went into this almost blind. About 1/3 of the way through I thought it was very Tarrintino esque, and then 2/3rds through thought he was actually his work, and was quite surprised at the credits when it wasn't. Didn't feel pacing was really an issue, just looked at the length at 2:20 minutes, didn't really feel that long.

When Darlene smashes the glass bottle over Father Flynn, there was an audible gasp from the audience, including me. The first time I've ever made such a noise during a film.

I agree, it was a shame about Hamm's character wasn't in it for longer.

Nightcrawler - 8/10

Really interesting and well made. Kept my attention from start to finish.

Bad Times at the El Royale - 9/10

Loved it! Went in completely blind and turns out it's a cool little mystery thriller set around a hotel. To know much more would spoil it.

It is a long film and deliberately slow in places, I love that but the Odeon seats are so uncomfortable that for the last 30mins I was wanting it to end just so I could stretch my legs.

Johnny English Strikes Again - 0.9/10

I got invited to see this, and as it was free I thought "why not?". I've never seen a Johnny English film, but assumed there would be a few laughs seeing as it's Rowan Atkinson. In the end I think I smiled once. One of the worst films I've seen in a long, long time. The only time I've ever left the theatre was when I went to see Men in Black 2, but I think this was amazingly even worse than that.

What's stranger is whilst the kids in the theatre were chuckling away, so we're the majority of adults. Baffling. I pretty much tuned out after maybe 30 mins and was just counting down the minutes. An absolute stinker of a movie with literally no redeeming qualities.

The fact one of the worst characters in The Office U.S. was the main villain never gave me much hope.

Off to see First Man tomorrow, so hopefully that's better..

Bad Times at the El Royale - 8/10

Lovely stuff from the director of Cabin in the Woods, a man who loves two way windows. Amazing cast and sound track. A long film that doesn't drag.

I really liked it but it needed an extra element like Cabin in the Woods had to raise it to classic level.

A very good watch which is never boring.

With the wife away for a few weeks, ive had plenty of time for movies that i couldnt convince her to watch with me :lol:

Event Horizon 8/10
Ive still no idea how Paul Anderson managed to direct an honest to god great movie, but he managed it, proving the old adage "even a stopped clock shows the right time twice a day" is very true. Yeah some aspects of it are cheesy, the OTT funky black guy, the shitty, SHITTY CGI that looked bad even back in 1997, but god damn i love this film. Sam Neill is amazingly OTT (in a good way), Lawrence Fishbburne is great, and its got some genuinely creepy moments and messed up imagery. In a perfect world, Event Horizon with all the cut content restored and directed by a more competent horror director would be the best horror movie of all time.

No Country for Old Men 10/10
Pretty much my favourite film of all time right here. I strawberry floating adore this film. Perfection. Also, i only just noticed for the first time ever that the film has no music in it at all.

John Wick 2 8/10
Not as good as the original, it gets a bit silly with the entire city of New York being undercover hitmen, but its still got amazing action and Keanu is a legend.

The Matrix 10/10
Still as good as when it came out. Another classic from Keanu.

300 7/10
Another film thats cheesy as all hell but god damn if it isnt entertaining as gooseberry fool.

Also can i just take a second to complain that even tho every one of these movies is old as hell (aside from Wick 2), not ONE of them was on either Netflix, or Amazon Prime Video. I had to torrent all of them. I dont know why i even pay for Netflix if they cant show these old ass movies over here, cause i strawberry floating know theyre on netflix US

Its just so goofy, but played so straight by all the main characters that its impossible not to love it. Frank's constant wailing absolutely kills me, "ohhhh jeeesus Burt!!!" :lol: And Tarman is an amazing zombie

2 is great and has the two warehouse staff from the first in a
Brilliant cameo at the start. 3 is a bit different but has some amazing effects. After that it gets messy, rave from the grave and the other one are just poor zombie films and not in the same spirit. 2 also has one hell of a movie poster as did part 1.

3 also has a very amazing leading lady that could go toe to toe with Trash from the first film.

After seeing ROTLD it's hard to take the endings of The Crazies Remake and Alien Vs Predator 2 seriously as it's literally the very same ending.

Scouts guide to the zombie apocalypse has a similar vibe to return of the living dead, as does Cooties.

It pisses me off too, there's absolutely no reason why films that old aren't available on most streaming services.

Die Hard is a good example, its not on Netflix and Amazon expects you to pay extra for it as it isn't included in Prime - banana splits.
