    I like mother! I think it makes a nice companion film to Black Swan. On the surface they're quite similar, although the allegorical elements of mother! take it off in another direction.

    I think the negative reaction is largely down to it being marketed to be a completely different film to what it is (which often happens with films that are original and hard to categorise). The trailer made it look like a 90s yuppy home invasion thriller, which it kind of is in the first half, but very much not in the second half.

    Murder on the Orient Express

    Hoping the tease at the end is real and we get another soon. The wife and I immediately starting searching for Orient Express breaks afterwards!

    7/10
    I've read that Death on the Nile has been confirmed.

    David Brent - Life on the Road

    65/100

    For the most part fairly solid, funny entertainment. More Brent cringe. Ben Bailey Smith is great and good to see a few of the Phoneshop Famalam making small appearances. Ending lets it down a little with his fellow band mates going from despising him to being his buddy at the end a little easily in my opinion.

    If you like The Office, its a solid follow up story, but doesn't hit close the same heights

    It massively misses Stephen Merchant's influence. Without him most of the observational wit is gone and it's just cringe comedy.

    Tomb Raider getting some expectedly shit reviews after its release in Asia.

    Made by a no-name director, the question is why would a recent Oscar winner follow in Halle Berry's footsteps and immediately sign on for a nailed-on turd? Surely her example shows that even a dump truck of money doesn't make up for the damage it does to your career?

    Annihilation

    Terrific, really. Dreamy, ambiguous, horrific, contemplative.

    If you like SF that doesn't spell it all out for you, you'll enjoy it. Otherwise you might think it's all a bit pointless. Great synth score too.

    Plus, dat Oscar Isaac.

    91.5/100

    I think Nicholas Cage pretty much did the same thing after winning too. Vikander has been in some proper shit films since winning the Oscar to be fair.

    Looking at the upcoming blockbuster releases over summer, only Infinity War and Mission Impossible look any good. I really want Solo to be great but thatís just wishful thinking.

    Edit: Iíve seen one terrible review for Tomb Raider so far. All the others are way more positive.

    I think Nicholas Cage pretty much did the same thing after winning too. Vikander has been in some proper shit films since winning the Oscar to be fair.
    The films that follow the film he won for (Leaving Las Vegas) were The Rock, Con Air and Face/Off. Three pretty good films in my book, albeit not of the quality of his winning flick (although it's probably fair to note that he'd probably completed filming on The Rock before his win). After that it went a bit pear shaped, but he's always had an incredible work ethic, appearing in at least three films a year since he started acting in pictures. Since the win, and particularly since the new millennium, his work rate has increased slightly though - he's managed five films in a year a number of times since then. With that much work it's perhaps not surprising he doesn't put that much effort into creating a completely new character for each one, especially when his crazy whack-job character seems so saleable.

    @anephric

    I certainly agree on: Dreamy, horrific, contemplative. Not really on ambiguous.

    Or I'm missing something (which is equally possible).

    Either way: Annihilation 82/100

    Unless Vikander's financial adviser doesn't notice her buying castles, Superman No1s and forgetting to pay any tax and then having the IRS as an agent, I don't think she'll end up like the Cagemeister.

    The prolific comment reminds me that Danny Trejo has been in over 350 films, can anyone beat that?

    That is quite something. The closest I've been able to come is Derek Jacobi at 148 acting credits, and he's even a little older than Trejo. And that's less than half Trejo's output. Next best was Charlotte Rampling at 120-something. De Niro's done even less, and the less said about our Denzel at this point the better.

    If you widen it to foreign language films (eg. Indian films), there's probably a few actors with more than 350 credits. But otherwise, I don't know who comes close to that.

    (tbf a lot of Trejo roles are just bit parts, so it's not like he's spending weeks on set or anything)

    Just had a dig through the Indian films, and I don't know much about them, but I found a K.N. Singh who was in at least a film ever year between 1938 and 1984 it seems. Even he's only got 188 credits though, and he died in 2001, which I reckon would disqualify him anyway.

    I've found a few now between 100 and 150, but Jacobi's still the highest scorer I've found who's still alive. Or at least, would be if it weren't for Trejo.

    Annihilation

    It's good but it missed out on greatness by not actually saying anything. I felt it would have been better had it been a TV series. I'd recommend it though as it is memorable.

    8/10

    My stomach is trying to kill me, so I'm at home watching In Bruges and eating Golden Crunch Creams

    In Bruges is a wonderful film and all the better for its fairly strict adherence to the classical unities. It's one of those rare films you can imagine would make a truly wonderful play.

    90/100

    You only have to start sniffing around jobbing character actors or B-movie regulars to find hundreds of credits: John Carradine, for example, or even David Carradine.

    Pick a Carradine.

    Three Billboards

    As good as everyone says it is. Rockwell and McDormand are outstanding.

    9/10

    Films I watched this week:

    Donnie Brasco: 8/10 - I actually thought I remembered much more happening in this film, but still, a very good gangster film, with great acting all round. One of Depps best movies.

    Saw: 6/10 - Not the best on rewatches because twists have no impact. Characters look stupider the more rewatches you have.

    Apocalipto: 9/10 - Had never watched this before. Was pretty awesome. So fast paced, the 2+ hours flew in!

    Logan Lucky - 8/10

    Great film. The heist part is actually the weakest element of the film, with the first act and short end game being the stronger parts. Saying that it's still a lot of fun from start to finish. A great cast doing a good job. There's not a dud character in the film, not one. Easily the strongest aspect of the film every single character is distinct, interesting and goes somewhere over the course of the run time. The central relationship between Tatum and his daughter is spot on and had me welling up at a few points.

    Gets high style points based on how the movie was made, distributed and profits shared.
