Prometheus 3/5

 

I remember how much I was looking forward to this before it came out and then it came out and I heard it was shit and didn't watch it cause I couldn't face the disappointment, and by waiting so long to watch it I have somehow multiplied the disappointment.

 

I was prepared now for it to just be shit, but it isn't, they had the makings of a worthy prequel to Alien in there and they fucked it. Tighten the script up a bit, cut down on the fake accents (my current major bugbear with TV and films), cut a few of the dafter bits, and undo the dumbdown at least once and this could have been great. As it is: meh. 

 

Edit: bumping this from a 2 to 3.

Robin Hood - prince of thieves 

 

3/5 it looks so cheap, the acting and accents are atrocious, and it goes on for 3hrs and 10mins.

 

But Alan Rickman’s sheriff, so, you know...

Avengers: Endgame
 

Spoiler

A sweet ending and I liked the new Hulk/Banner and Lebowski Thor, though I didn't care for the narrative jazz hands of "magic quantum dimension time travel". It was interesting when Tony's daughter and the line about the whale population starting to recover indicated a grudging acceptance of the positive effects of Thanos' actions in the face of overwhelming loss, and I thought the conflict arising from this could've been explored more satisfyingly than it was. But by the end this was largely forgotten about and we had the usual MCU spectacle of everyone lined up against an identikit alien army and I lost interest.

I hope the MCU spins off in a radical and interesting new direction but I wouldn't bet on it.

Oh but the style was glorious. Reminded me a lot of golden age Argento, I absolutely love it. 

Me too. Watched it a couple of times now. Just love the odd world it creates.

I'm going to do the last three because I'm greedy and they were all fantastic. 

 

Ex Machina 

Looks absolutely stunning with a fantastic dread-building atmosphere. Thought the creator guy was a little too much of twiddling moustache villian but throughly enjoyed being swept along with the various levels of doubt that were introduced to the main character and loved the ending. 5/5

 

District 9

Descends a little into too much of a straight-up generic action flick towards the end, but despite this I found this to be both hilarious and horrifying in equal measure. I watched on a crowded train and burst out laughing and felt like I was going to be sick within the space of five minutes. Excellent. 5/5

 

Silence of the Lambs

Couple of absolutely phenomenal performances and it doesn't feel like its aged one bit. Bit weird we decided to watch this because we're watching the thematically identical Mindhunter series 2 at the moment, but I didn't find my mind wandering once and this is quite something for me. 5/5

The style is why it got 2/5 otherwise it would be getting hit with a hard 1. Outside of it looking great, it was a load of old shite.

Flushed away 3/5

plenty of sight gags, parody, and humour in Aardmans cgi movie. Best of all, the cgi is just a story telling tool.

 

The Empire Strikes back 5/5

i have nothing to add, it’s empire...

 

Return Of The Jedi 5/5

Ain’t even finished yet.

Beauty and the beast (1991j

 

If someone asks me what my favourite movie of all time is I usually say “Blade Runner”, “The Godfather” or, if they are a bit geeky like me “The Empire Strikes Back”.

 

But that’s all lies. THIS is my favourite movie of all time. Peerless in every aspect, I wouldn’t change a thing (well, maybe chips voice is a bit grating at times). I only have to hear the first few bars of the title song and I well up EVERY TIME.

 

5/5

I really love this. The songs are the best.  The live action version just didn't feel right.

I have avoided it so far. I think curiosity will get the better of me eventually

Battle of the Sexes

 

Emma Stone as Billie Jean King v Steve Carrell as Bobby Riggs in the story of the famous match between the 2.

 

An enjoyable flick, I quite liked this. Perfect for a cosy Sunday evening.

 

3.5/5

The Best Offer

Geoffrey Rush is superb in a film about an auctioneer whose life gets turned upside by a mysterious client. It's beautiful to watch but the story and the other characters prevents the film from being great.

 

3/5

Capsized: Blood in the Water

 

This was part of Discovery's Shark Week and is based on a true story.  Lots of screaming and looking upset - but completely over-acted and dull because it's been done hundreds of times before, and far more effectively than this.  Dull.

 

1.5/5

Muppet Treasure Island 5/5

 

much like the carry on films, I think the muppets work best when parodying existing fictions*. Not Tim Currys best role, but you know... “it’s my only number”.

Solo - 3.5/5 

 

It was fine but I don’t think I needed a backstory or maybe just this wasn’t going enough - some good stuff and really liked Donald Glover but it never seemed to really get going.

The Dark Knight Rises 3/5

 

I turned this off after fifteen minutes years ago and I have no idea why, it was very acceptable. 

 

Solomon Kane 2/5

 

Like a shitty but enjoyable enough Willow. Would have gave it a three but for the fact that it's a fantasy film set in England with Christians and real witches and other demon's and whatnot. Something about that just struck me as unseemly. I'm not even sure why exactly, a similar vampire films wouldn't annoy me at all, or it was like some hammer horror shit it wouldn't annoy me nearly as much.

Kung Pow.

 

Watched because it was on the telly when I got home from a night out.  It appears to be a 'Comedy' kung fu movie and most of the 'Jokes' are derivatives of bad dubbing, silly accents or a combination of the two.

 

1 out of 5, and that single mark was earned very early on in the film when an obviously plastic baby escapes from a blazing inferno by rolling down a stony hill, 

 

 

Would not recommend.

Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark

 

Raiders of the Lost Ark / Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark

 

An oldie but a goodie. Been at least 10 years or more since i last watched, it still holds up even if it has it's cheesy moments. I did find myself pointing out quite a lot of absurdities in the film though. Looking forward to temple of doom. 4.5/5

:hmm:

 

I was THIS close to saying something. I even checked the IMDB to see when "Indiana Jones and the" was appended to the title of the film, the 1999 video release, etc etc... nd that's only cos I was already rabbit holing Ronald Lacey. In an earlier thread some one expressed surprise that gestapo officer todt, and harris in porridge, are the same actor.

 

Well, he's ALSO the guy who killed Hopkirk, in Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased).
