  1. Sweet Bean (2015) 5/5 I took out a months subscription to the BFI player as I wanted to watch Bait again, and noticed this was on there. It’s a film I’d heard lots about, with people often comparing it to Kore-eda’s films, so I thought I’d give it a go, especially as it stars the amazing Kirin Kiki. So glad I did. A truly beautiful film. A film that gently hooks you in, then twists at your heart.
  2. Probably mine too. But OUATIH is up there with it for me.
  3. Watched this for my third time tonight. Think this may actually be my favourite Tarantino film.
  4. I watched it through non legal means. Will definitely go see it on the big screen if it gets a release though, as the visuals are great.
  5. Color Out Of Space (2020) 5/5 Richard Stanley returns after a 30 year hiatus to direct a H P Lovecraft adaptation staring Nicolas Cage about an alpaca farmer whose yard is invaded by an alien meteor, leading to all sorts of weird shit. Its every bit as good as it sounds. Welcome back Richard Stanley.
  6. This is where it gets real hard for me. The last decade was amazing for films. 2010 1. Black Swan 2. Inception 3. Kick Ass 2011 1. Kill List 2. I Wish 3, Cabin In The Woods 2012 1. Dredd 2. Dark Knight Rises 3. American Mary 2013 1. Blue Is The Warmest Colour 2. Like Father Like Son 3. A Field In England 2014 1. The Raid 2 2. Predestination 3. Ex Machina
  7. Drop everything and watch Good Time. It’s awesome.
  8. I really can't stand the trend these days of film reviewers saying that if your film deals with a certain matter then it has to follow certain rules. Fuck that, since when did art have to follow such rules? I really like Kermode and Robbie Collin, but they're both very guilty of this.
  9. It’s gentle ribbing at best though. And no historical figure should be treated as a sacred cow that’s beyond a bit of parody. Tarantino said that he had read interviews with Bruce Lee where he came across as a bit of an arrogant Hollywood type, so why not have some fun with that.
  10. I've watched Shadow a couple of times, it's great, a real return to form.
  11. That's a pretty solid list for best film. I'll mainly be cheering on The Irishman, but would fucking love it if Parasite won. Critics moaning on Twitter about this and Bafta, seems to get worse every year. Sure there's films I'd love to see get more attention (Vox Lux, The Lighthouse), but as a broad scope of the year I think they're not to far off.
  12. Jojo Rabbit 5/5 It was great. Those critics who gave it one star need their bloody heads examined.
  13. I get what you're saying. I do think the film has moments like that though. The heatbreaking look her mum gives her when she says to her kid "you can have my wish" speaks volumes of the relationship between mother and daughter over the years.
  14. My son says that to me on a weekly basis, so pretty realistic dialogue in my experience
  15. I don't agree that this was over hyped. It is sleight, and maybe doesn't have the greatest depth, but I don't think its trying to be anything other than what it is. A simply told feel good movie whith an emotional wallop. Definitely had me in tears.
  16. The best song and dance ending to a film has to be Zatoichi.
  17. I simply don’t go to the cinema if I can’t get an aisle seat. Which is another reason I don’t like intervals. Pain in the arse letting people in and out of the row.
  18. They should play the audio from the film in the nearest toilet so you get an idea of what’s happening while you’re gone.
  19. It's not a bad film, and indeed has some great moments, but obviously not a patch on the first two. I see it as an optional add on you can watch, rather than part of a trilogy. After all, part two ended perfectly.
  20. The Leftovers ends beautifully. As for films, Inception is my favourite ending. The collective gasp in the cinema on that final shot was a great cinema going moment.
  21. I always have a couple of beers at my local cinema before the film. Pee before I leave the house, two beers, pee last minute before the film, run for the toilets as soon as the credits start to roll. Even got through The Irishman this way.
  22. Hate intervals. Would rather just get on with the film. I'm in my late forties, and my bladder ain't what it used to be, but I find that if you time your pre film drinks so that you have a pee just before you go in, things are usually fine. Can't take a drink in with me anymore though
