I also really enjoyed Shazam. It’s a shame it didn’t perform as well as other DC films. It’s far better than the oddly loved Wonder Woman and Aquaman films.

I had to feign enjoyment at Wonder Woman but to be honest it came out in an awkward spot. Like, I was hesitant to bash it because of...well, y’know...society. Still am, tbh.

Can't say i've really enjoyed any of the DC universe movies apart from Man of Steel.

That said though, i'm really enjoying the DC TV Arrowverse, which despite having a smaller budget, is far superior.

It’s an important film, but it isn’t a very good film.

Gremlins 6/10 I'm sure if I'd watch this in 1984 at the cinema I would have thought it was great. It's fun in places but nothing that special.

Escape from the Planet of the Apes 7/10- Split between a 6 and a 7, it's better than Beneath the Planet of Apes but not as good as the original, both in production and story line. However it's still an interesting reversal of the 1st film.

Zira :(

Vertigo 6/10 - Wanted to see this for years. Music was stunning, vertigo effects left me feeling dizzy. But it gave all its secrets up too early, and I couldn't see the chemistry between the two. Glad I finally watched it though.

I gave it a 7 originally but was perhaps being slightly pressured by the fact that it's supposed to be one of the greatest ever movies.

The twist is good, the bit after he meets the girl is good but could have been done better (it's tense bit as not as tense as it should be).

Mudbound 7/10: like with most of these films was a bit harrowing, could have done with an edit.

The first hour is a bit redundant, builds up the relationship between Henry and his wife, but the whole plot is about Jamie and Ronzel. (There's no plot before this).

I don't get the love for Vertigo. I loved Rear Window though. Grace Kelly :datass:

Star Trek The Undiscovered Country - 8/10

Good send off for the original crew. Plot was a bit predictable, but it was fun to see it all come together.

Star Trek Generations - 6/10

Bit of a weird one this. Some of this movie wasn't really fleshed out, it had way too many ideas that didn't really add to the overall momentum of the plot. The whole Data sub plot seemed like it had very little point to it. Not really sure why Kirk was in it as well. His arc seemed to be finished in the last movie, it was a nice ending for him.

Event Horizon - 7/10

So 90's in places. It never really gets truly amazing, but it's an enjoyable horror movie nonetheless. The idea behind it is really good. Would love a reboot of it.

Vertigo is a definitely a film where YMMV. The reveal is positioned mid-way through the film so that there is sufficient time to build the tension for when Scottie finally realises the truth and forces her up the bell tower.

The audience is supposed to feel a dilemma at this moment: i) absolutely strawberry floating petrified for Judy as Scottie lets all of his frustrations out (is he going to throw her off the tower, just like the woman she impersonated?), and ii) great sympathy for Scottie as Judy admits her deceit.

James Stewart is also absolutely chuffing incredible in this film as is Bernard Hermann's soundtrack.

All of that said; Rear Window is probably my favourite film.

I need to watch a lot more Hitchcock. I think the only movies of his I've seen all the way through are Psycho and The Birds. That's pretty disgraceful.

Did you like them?

I'd recommend North by Northwest as your next port of call.

I remember liking them but it was years ago.

I've never seen any Hitchcock available on Netflix or Amazon so I guess I'll have to "acquire" them another way.

I’d also suggest Rear Window and Rope - the latter being notable for being Hitchcock’s first colour film, being staged entirely within one apartment and filmed in one continuous shot (with a few tricks to maintain that illusion given the technological restrictions of its day). Both brilliant, absorbing films.

I called off his players' names as they came marching up the steps behind him....All nice guys. They'll finish last. Nice guys. Finish last.

So you patronised a woman for a good effort but didn't hold her up to the same standard as a man?

Strangers On A Train is my personal fave Hitchocock. It balances the comedic and the horrific quite well.
