    Watched it.  Felt like a grab bag of Bond moments and the tone was all over the place. It was enjoyable enough but entirely forgettable.  
     

    Special award goes to whatever construction kept Paloma’s (or should I say Goodnight’s) dress on during her fight sequence.

     

     

    Agreed. Enjoyed it in the moment, but can't remember much about it only a couple of hours later. Seemed like they used the random bond generator to write it. I have no idea what Freddy Mercury's motivation was or who he was meant to be. Best bit was Ana de armes. Should have had a whole film with her playing off bond, much more fun than moody bond and his french girlfriend. 

  2. BBC news at 10 spinning this, calling the fans man utd fans who "believe" that the glazers have been taking money out of the club. They've only loaded club with hundreds of millions of pounds of debt and been paying themselves millions of pounds in dividends every year!

  3. Thought this was ok, it played with some interesting themes which @Moz has described much more eloquently than I can. It did feel a bit like an early draft of a much better film though. Less convoluted peril for George on his journey through the ice would have been better for the overall tone of the film. I also enjoy just watching things happening in space! Loved the start of ad astra for that reason before that went pear shaped. 

  4. Strange film. Complete lack of character development left it really unengaging for such a supposedly big action thriller. At least half an hour too long. Bizarre action scenes, had no idea what was going on in the finale. Felt a bit like a mission Impossible film with set piece, exposition, set piece format, but lacked the wow factor of Tom hanging onto a moving plan. Key central plot hole:

    Wouldn't photons move backwards relative to anyone who'd gone through one of those time reversing gateways? In which case light would move away from the retina rather than towards it, leaving anyone in the wrong time frame completely blind.

    Yep. I'm a big fan of easy, upbeat comedies. Mostly for hangovers. But they're not as prevalent as you'd think (the films, not the hangovers).

     

    Both Samberg and Milioti do a great job. But I find the main tropes a little disappointing:

     

      Hide contents

    They're both 'freed' from their cynicism about love and monogamy by.... (gasp!) finding 'the one'!

    It's a bit traditional and toothless against the backdrop of the rest of the movie. But it's not a dealbreaker.

    They didn't go into the details of the encounter between Sarah and Abe, which I feel is a missed opportunity. But I suppose when they're eschewing the past, it doesn't really matter all that much.

     

     

    Thought this was decent, though I agree with your spoilered point.

    Initially I was pleasantly surprised with her reaction to his speech at the end, 'i can do this without you but life might need a little less mundane with you', rather than the standard Hollywood melting and falling into his arms. But then as they walked into the wormhole she had to go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like 'I love you'.

     

    Otherwise very entertaining with non-annoying leads.

  6. Got a copy of this last week after waiting for the price to drop a bit. I loved 2016 Doom. This is quite disappointing. The combat sections are fun if tough and sometimes frustrating, but what in the world possessed them to include the terrible platforming sections, especially the wall climbing bits. And the story...I have no idea at all what's going on. All we need to know if that somehow the gates of hell have opened and demons have invaded earth, and leave it there. 

  7. Enjoyed this. Agree with the above, last 30 minutes didn't quite hold up.

     

    Spoiler

    Telegraphed his wife's death a mile off tho. Didn't really need that, things were tense enough as they were and it ultimately didn't really affect the outcome. 

     

    I rate Joseph Gordon Levitt, I think he's decent in most of the things I've seen him in. Good Bruce Willis mimic in Looper, and convincing in The Walk and Snowden.

    Thanks will give it a go.

    The first one is better. Give that a go, if you haven’t already.

    Yes I finished the first one years ago, I'll have to go back and play through it again.
