    Geostorm - 5/10

    Yes, this film is terrible but as with Den of Thieves, I found it enjoyable due to it's pure stupidity.

    The film had up to $15 million of reshoots, which come after a test screening in December 2015 and has been delayed since then. So was it worth it? What a terrific waste on money! I wonder how bad the original one was.

    I think the effects in this film are extremely variable. The scenes in space are pretty good but I think some of the ones on the ground are laughable. As are the ones where you have people and pets outrunning incoming weather.

    I thought the plot was utterly stupid but this is a global disaster film with Gerard Butler, so I wasn't surprised. This is the most cliche ridden film I've seen for ages. It also contained absolutely nothing new that I haven't seen before in other films of this ilk. It's also totally predictable.

    I did quite enjoy the film though. I've seen much worse. I suppose I'm going to have to watch Gods of Egypt next.

    @beastmaster I watched Gods of Egypt the other night, oh my god.

    Everyone sounds like Frodo Baggins apart from Gerard that just sounds Scottish "FOKIN GET OOT A HERE OSIRIS BEFORE A FOKIN HEEDBUTT YA".

    It's so bad it's brilliant. It somehow manages to simultaneously look very expensive and cheap as fuck. It's quite a sight.

    The benefit of Gods of Egypt is that it consciously does not take itself seriously. It's a film designed to be cheesy and to revel in that cheesiness.

    Geostorm is cheesy but its makers weren't aware of or at least weren't aiming for that state. It lacks any sense of irony or pertinent message.

    Anyway, my last film:

    Pusher II - 8/10

    This was basically Mads Mikkelsen's big break before he hit the jackpot as one of the villains in Casino Royale. Like the first film, it's a really a dark comedy, albeit a very depressing one.

    Basically, it's about a guy who's made one big fuck-up of his life through poor choices. Most films of this type though would be about the guy being very self-aware about his inadequacies - he commits crime to be lazy, to be spiteful, to get rich quick - but the protagonist of this particular film - Tonny - has no idea why he's such a fuck-up. He commits crimes just on a whim because its his way of expressing himself (like stealing a Porsche just to impress his gangster dad), and the film is basically him waking up to the reality that he is a failure, surrounded by useless cunts and trying to do something about it.

    It's not a rags-to-riches story or anything like that. The film does have an interesting and slightly positive ending that puts a smile on your face, even if you know that the aftermath of that ending isn't likely to be particularly good, but there's a feel-good factor in there in realising that a light bulb has gone on in Tonny's otherwise dim mind.

    I reckon they must have wanted to make something a bit better, but when it was pure shite they fell back on "yeyeyeye it's SUPPOSED" to be a bit shit lol".

    Gods of Egypt was ass, and I don't think it was as self-aware as it'd like.

    The boy-man was terrrriible, but Butler's gurning is always enjoyable.

    Gods of Egypt was utter crap, but I don't really get the hate for Gerard Butler specifically. Not a particularly brilliant actor, but not terrible either. Most of his dud movies have, in my view, been less about him and more about terrible scripts, terrible writing, terrible effects, and/or terrible direction.

    His accent also seems to have come in for stick recently, but recall him being praised by some for his lack of a Scottish accent in Machine Gun Preacher (which is a good film and worth a watch IMO). That said, as a Glaswegian myself, I guess any hints of a Scottish accent don't jump out at me the same way.

    The Equaliser:

    I rewatched this again the other day and itís still good. Love me a bit of Denzel. I posted because it clearly laid the grounds for a franchise and one never came, but apparently itís out this year.

    I think Melissa Leo is my favourite actress for the acting shite and sheís coming back. If they ever put Homicide: Life on the Street on Netflix Iíll be so happy.

    Melissa Leo/10

    Re-watched Alien: Covenant, as I couldn't believe it was as shit as I remembered it.

    It is, of course, even worse. A case study in how to crawl so far up your own ass that you forget to make your characters act even remotely realistically.

    Worst film in the francise by far.

    18/100

    @phAge the one thing I liked about Prometheus besides Fassbender was Shaw. Pissed off that they killed her off offscreen and refuse to watch Covenant because of it.

    @GarlVinland

    The funny thing is that the actors in Covenant actually do a decent job, it's just that the script is far, far beyond saving, even by capable people like Fassbender.

    I enjoy watching old, shit action movies on VHS, and this scene in R.O.T.O.R (1988 - about a robot cop gone rogue) made me laugh because it reminded me so much of the retardedly pretentious bits in Covenant:

    Creep 3/10

    Horror on the London Underground. Franka Potente was good in The Bourne Supremacy. During Creep her acting is far from convincing. Who is to blame, Potente, or the director? Creep has nothing to offer either way.

    Went to see Phantom Thread. Itís a very funny look at quite an odd relationship. Lovely costumes and score. Iím not sure what car DDL was driving (a classic MG?), but it was also lovely.

    Vicky Krieps as Alma steals the show.

    That speech in the car is like the brexiteers ethos. But this isn't the thread for that I guess.

    I quite liked this. The actor who played the creep did a good job.

    Watched quite a few movies recently including the still awesome The Running Man

    Just got back from watching Coco at the pictures. Slightly disappointing, only really came alive (pardon the pun) towards the end - 62/100

    Hikari - Radiance

    Japanese movie about a girl who at first glance seems more or less OK, but in reality she's not quite right in the head.

    It's a complete waste of everybody's time. If I'd taken the money I paid for the tickets and burnt it, I'd have at least spent 5 minutes watching it burn instead of the 1:30h+ I did watching this crap.

    Avoid like the crabs.

    0/10

    I didn't think Radiance was great or anything, but I've seen far worse.

    Our Souls At Night - 8/10

    Netflix original. Jane Fonda and Robert Redford are neighbours, both living alone and feeling lonely. They decide to start sleeping together, as in actually just sleeping in the same bed for company, not sexytimes. I'd never actually heard of this before, we just stumbled across it browsing through Netflix, but it's really good. Great acting, indie sensibilities in the dialogue, pacing etc. Recommended if it sounds interesting to you.

    The Lobster

    The definition of a weird European film. A guy splits up with his wife and so is forced to go to a singles hotel where he must find a partner in 45 days or be turned into an animal.

    The whole thing is told via gray imagery, sombre narration and a very 70s era looking hotel. No emotions are shown during its run time so it has a very unique feeling to it. Not a single laughter or scream, the closest we get is a yelp when a woman jumps out of a window.

    Honestly I have no idea how to rank this. It raises some funny situations in a black comedy sort of way. But just as it starts to really explore some unique setups the whole film switches gears as the main character leaves the hotel to join those living in the forest. Which are at the other end of the spectrum (they wish to stay single).

    Make up your mind your own mind/10

    The directors new film The Killing of a Sacred Dear is also very much the same. Utterly fucked up but I was laughing through it all.

    @Sharz Yeah it's bollocks. Just as the film starts to get interesting at the hotel it completely switches tone, as you say, to the dull forest rebels. Wasted opportunity.

    Very slow at times but doesn't follow the marvel formula which was nice.

    Great action scenes and a strong cast but yeah very slow starter

    Wind River

    AKA Scarlett Witch, Hawkeye and The Punisher go on a very bleak holiday.

    I kinda enjoyed this, partly because the scenery was so fascinating and also because it encouraged me to learn more about the present-day native American culture.

    The pacing is a bit weird though. It starts off in ultra slow-burn mode but then seems to rapidly accelerate towards the conclusion before you feel ready for it. Way too much mumbling going on for my liking too.

    7/10

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri

    Excellent performances all round, lots of state of the nation commentary that never overshadows what's going on in the plot itself.

    That said the murder being so secondary to the human drama was a surprise.

    Watched it on a ferry and the turned off the DVD during what turned out to be the final scene. Took four attempts to get the movie back in place only for us to find it had about thirty seconds left. It slightly killed the mood.

    9/10 film 8/10 viewing

    Hadn't heard of this but was compelled to look it up after such a bad review and now... I kinda want to watch it.
