The art style and animation were fantastic. The ending was a quite emotional and powerful. Don't get me wrong, it is a very good film and I'm much preferred Princess Mononoke though.

Bloody love that film and the way the visuals get more detailed as the princess grows up.

Toy Story 4

Woah! I think I liked that better than 3. Gabby Gabby's story really hit me out of nowhere and I wasn't expecting it at all. Her speech towards the end is still echoing in my mind this morning. :cry:

Coco

It's starting to get a little bit unsettling how consistent Pixar movies are. This was absolutely brilliant from start to finish, and I was struggling to hold back the tears by the end. Great stuff.

9/10

The Platform - ****

This could easily just have been a Saw/Hostel style gore porn horror movie, but thankfully, it steers just the right side of gruesome. There's definitely some very violent and uncomfortable scenes, but they aren't the movie's focus.

As a simplified, face value summary, the platform is a very obvious metaphor for trickle down economics. The titular platform, carries a gigantic and extravagant banquet from floor to floor, through the middle of a huge tower based prison, starting at the top, and descending. 2 prisoners on each floor share the meal, eating what they want, before the platform moves to the floor below. As a consequence, the lower you are, the less you eat. Nobody knows how many floors there are, and prisoners change floors randomly on a monthly basis, meaning those who were starving before feel entitled to gorge, and those who have moved to a lower floor expect those above to leave them even less. This animosity, and inability for floors to communicate beyond their immediate neighbours, makes any attempt to organise, or ration the food, useless.

The protagonist's journey is that of an outsider, entering the system, suffering in it, and attempting to break it. At an hour and a half, it's a punchy tale, and it doesn't suffer for its brevity at all. Information about the world is often only alluded to, and glimpses of the top floor where the meal is prepared are fleeting and surreal, leaving plenty for you to think on.

Sounds like a foody take on Cube.

Sort of, it's less of an escape movie than Cube, and more about people just trying to survive until their sentence is up, while dealing with (or not) what their survival means for others.

I watched it last night too.

I'd say a 7/10 for me.

Impractical Jokers The Movie: 4/10 - as much as I love the guys and the TV Show the Movie Format does nothing for them, it's not devoid of humour but the tasks during the film are just disappointing. There's not much that couldn't be done on the TV Show, wasted opportunity!

Frozen II

8/10

Great stuff, Olaf stole the show, though it loses a point because the songs weren't as catchy.

The Platform - 7/10

An interesting premise, and it kept me pretty engrossed throughout. Not sure how I'd describe it, maybe a dystopian sci-fi thriller/horror :lol:
I was disappointed by the ending slightly, but had a feeling they weren't going to tie things up.
Some funny bits, some disgusting bits, but entertaining throughout.

Oh, and Alexandra Masangkay :datass:

I freely admit that I was a bubbling wreck through about 4 separate intervals at Coco. It’s borderline traumatic.
Anyway, Cool Runnings - 8/10 Has aged remarkably well, is still really funny, and can stick you in the feels a few times as well.

The Invisible Man.

Starts really strong, but after about an hour it loses steam and becomes one of those films that’s only tolerable if you can accept that every seemingly smart and capable character just ignores the VERY OBVIOUS plot thing that would make everything fall apart if one person said ‘hey but...’

There’s an actual scene that made me angry where the heroine (who strawberry floating carries this shitty script far further than it has any right to go) is being interviewed by the police because of ‘a thing’ and what’s going on has, at this point, been SO strawberry floating flag posted that when she just goes quiet it’s beyond frustrating.

JUST SAY THE THING.

HE’S THE GUY WHO’S DOING A THING. JUST MENTION THE THING. YOU’RE NOT EVEN BEING CRAZY. YOU’RE MAKING YOURSELF APPEAR CRAZY BY NOT SAYING THE THING. THIS IS THE POLICE, JUST TELL THEM THE THING. I GET THAT THE PLOT IS HINGED ON THE THING BUT FOR strawberry floats SAKE.

And then there’s the finale which... I mean honestly seems imported from a different draft of the script. It requires a very specific interpretation of the plot that feels otherwise really empty.

Still, Elizabeth Moss earns her strawberry floating cheque. She makes all the on paper nonsense eminently watchable.

Are we talking about The fact she could just tell the police about the fact her crazy Scientist boyfriend has an invisible suit in his houseand they should like totally just go have a look?

If so I agree. I also agree that the first half is much stronger than the second. The GF was actually getting scared, and then said she found it fine once she found out what the thing actually is.

The only other thing that irritated me was the fact that none of the places that should have CCTV have any, which would have been really handy for such a situation(mental hospital etc)

Elisabeth Moss is great.

The bit that annoyed me wasn't even as obvious as there's an invisibility suit in his house, but that'Hey, I know that I sound crazy when I say I'm being stalked by an invisible man, and I know lots of weird gooseberry fool is happening that I keep blaming on an invisible man, but it might be worth mentioning at least once that my supposedly dead abusive ex husband IS A WORLD LEADING EXPERT ON 'OPTICS' AND MAKING HIMSELF INVISIBLE IS BOTH A RECURRING THREAT THAT HE MADE AND A THING HE COULD TOTALLY DO SO MAYBE I SHOULD JUST MENTION THAT WHILE I'M BEING FRAMED FOR MURDERING MY SISTER.

From Up on Poppy Hill.

It was very good which I enjoyed it. Once again, the art style and the look of the film was fantastic.

Basic Instinct 7/10 - bit of a mess, and i don't think it's as clever as it thinks it is but it's still an enjoyable ride.

The Muppets [2011] - I forgot most of it from when I watched it a number of years back, but I still absolutely love it having watched it again.

I bet you paused it to look at Sharon Stone's business.
