I really enjoyed The Batman, but there's no way it's a 10/10 movie. That's 3 points more than Jaws!

Top Gun Maverick - 8/10

It was a very good film and it was plenty of actions thorough. Some stunts were clever actually.

Top Gun: Maverick - 8/10
First time I've been to the cinema in years (I think Blade Runner 2049 was the last time I went).
Very good though - nice balance of the new plot and characters with callbacks to the original too, and a great soundtrack to accompany some excellent action scenes.

Lightyear 7/10 Perfectly competent movie with some laughs. Had the source material to do better, and hopefully there will be a better sequel.

People should go watch it to annoy the homophobes(assuming why it has such a low IMDB rating).

Some great acting and the shark was very well done considering the lack of tech at that time. It was, at times, gorier than I'd remembered! Amazing soundtrack by the legendary John Williams. [7]


I reckon you'd bump it up to [9] if you watched it like this:

Edit: no idea why it says it's sensitive content. There's nothing graphic there.

The Batman - 8/10

I enjoyed it. Felt very long and like The Dark Knight had an extra section towards the end that wasn't really needed. The detective focus made a nice change and it looked fantastic.

Will be really interesting to see where the sequel goes. As the director's second part of the Planet of the Apes trilogy was the best part and a huge step up from the first movie.

Matt Reeves didn't direct the first Apes movie, he only did two and three.

Minions The Rise of Gru 6/10: It's fine had a few laughs but overall forgettable. Cinema was full of twats. Group of 12 year olds on the back row chatting/moving about (I managed an aggressive sssh) and some badly behaved families whose children wouldn't sit and kept running up and down the stairs/parent who kept standing in front of the screen.

Top Gun-Maverick 10/10

Wow. How is this so good? I probably rolled my eyes when I heard they were doing a Top Gun sequel but this is absolutely not just the benchmark for how to do a summer blockbuster but how to make a sequel to an old film. What it gets right that so many of these reboots and sequels don't, is having a real understanding of what made the original work while still having its own story to tell. And only making nods to the original when it makes sense rather than just descending into a checklist of "remember this bit?! and this bit?! and this bit?!".

It has heart, it's exciting, funny, sad and cheesy but never in a bad way. The tone is spot on and it avoids many obvious tropes it could have got caught up-I'm glad Maverick was still the absolute best (and they didn't do a student beats the master story) and also that Rooster wasn't angry with him because of his dad dying and they went a deeper with it.

Loved the cinematography too, so much great use of colour (and not just during the sunset scenes, of which there were many). And the action was incredibly well directed. It would be really easy to lose an audience in some of those sequences in the air and get confusing but somehow they managed to avoid it every twist and turn. And the final 45 minutes are just incredible. You won't see a better final act in an action film. It's a shame I had to pay for my seat in full because I only needed the edge of it. So many brilliant, memorable moments and the pay off on Rooster and Maverick's relationship was superb. I also thought it was really clever how much they drummed the mission into you throughout the film so when it got down to it you knew exactly what was happening and what the plan was. When that bridge appeared you were just as surprised as the pilots.

Tom Cruise is absolutely unrivalled in the summer blockbuster stakes and he's perfect here, one of his best performances in my opinion. Supporting cast are really good too, Miles Teller is brilliant especially in the final third ("What the hell were you even thinking?! "You told me not to think!") and Jennifer Connolly is great (and jesus christ she still looks incredible-that scene where she leaves the door open :datass:. The inclusion of Val Kilmer was really well done too, incredibly sad but really respectably done.

I just can't fault it. Brilliant.

I really need to get round to watching this, all I've seen is universal praise.

Bob's Burgers - 7/10

Didn't love the movie. Didn't hate it. It's a glossy longer episode, very similar in tone/stakes to season 4 finale.

It's fine - but it doesn't feel special or necessary. Most of my favourite characters only have minor roles which didn't help.

Songs were good but also I don't think anywhere near the best.

If you like BB already you'll have a fine time. Can't see it converting anyone though
