    Baby Driver.

    Was pretty good. The cuts during the car chase scenes easier to follow than films that are really badly cut so you can't tell what the hell was going on, just wish there were more of them. I'm less willing to sit through a film if it doesn't grab my attention these days, I could have had a good few hours on my PS4 which I haven't had the time for due to kids / being too tired, but watched this instead. Syncing everything with the music was a nice touch.

    8/10.

    What we do in the shadows
    Mockumentary about a den of vampires in New Zeeland. Made by the guy who made the excellent Hunt for the Wilderpeople and it shows. It has the same warm kind of humour and absurdities.

    After about 15 minutes I thought "OK, this is cute but how far can he go with this premise?" Pretty far it turned out. Full of unexpected twists and turns.

    I enjoyed it (but it aint a match for Hunt for the Wilderpeople in my book)

    Might even consider watching THOR RagnarŲk now.

    I need to watch wilderpeople as WWDITS is fucking brilliant.

    As for Baby Driver, I was actually pretty disappointed with it. The ending felt like a cop out and the lead just lacked something for me. Charisma possibly.

    I expected more after the hype. Scott Pilgrim remains Wright's best work for me.

    Do it, it's the most worthwhile Marvel film I've seen by a long way. Watch Boy as well.

    Since I fully agree with your opinions on Baby Driver and Scot Pilgrim you havea high chance of liking Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

    It's not a comedy though. A straight feel good moovie. But it has the funniest scene I've ever seen in a movie. Glad I didn't watch it at the cinema cause I laughed so hard and long I had to pause and calm down.

    I liked Baby Driver more than Scott Pilgrim. In that, while I didn't exactly *like* the lead character in Baby Driver, I didn't spend the majority of the movie wanting to punch him.

    Killing Gunther - 2/10

    "From the mind of Tram Killam" the trailer boasts. I don't know who the fuck this guy is but he obviously thinks he's way fucking smarter, cleverer and funnier than his fucking is, as I think this film is fucking shit!

    They say all the best bits are in the trailer. No fucking kidding! Almost ALL the fucking Arnie bits are in the fucking trailer! He shows up for about 7 minutes towards the end. Tops.

    I don't think it's a bad idea for a film. A Spinal Tap style mockumentary following a group of hitman as they try to find and kill the legendary hitman Gunther. But...well...none of the jokes are funny. At all.

    HOWEVER...

    It has Arnie giving it all over the end credits singing Country and Western. And here it is. The Austrian Oak sings Earthquake Love. Fucking brilliant!!! :)

    Scott is supposed to be a douche, whereas Baby is supposed to be a straight up likeable hero but I could see someone getting that but still finding the former irritating.

    For me it is one of the most joyous celebrations of video game culture consigned to film as well being Wright's best form of visual story telling so far. Baby Driver felt a bit gimmicky to me in contrast.

    It didn't help that Pilgrim had all the charisma of a wet fish. As did his girlfriend. I guess they were made for each other after all?

    I'm also not a fan of Michael Cera's characters in general, so there's another thing. I have similar problems with characters played by Jesse Eisenberg.

    Intrigued by Tomoís Wolf Creek 2 review a couple of pages back...

    Wolf Creek

    They say itís a horror film, but it really isnít. Itís all done so very matter-of-factly thereís no tension, even though the things it shows (and especially the bigger picture it paints) are truly horrific. I think I liked it very much, but for now Iím satisfied with what Iíve seen and wonít be going for WC2 soon.

    Prisoners & End of Watch

    Had a Jake Gillygallyhaal double on Sunday! (no mention of BBM please;) )

    Prisoners was good, Hugh put in a good turn as did the afore mentioned JG. A thriller about two girls being kindnapped and held prisoner...I see what they did there! it also explores what you might do or not do if you thought you had caught the "perp"

    End of Watch
    Second time seeing and I love the film. We are basically following two beat cops (Michael PeŮa and Jake Gyllenhaa)l on their shift over several days/weeks/months in Central LA. All the while them also recording events on their cameras. During their watch we see them get involved albeit not on purpose, with a Mexican cartel.

    Yeah, that's fair enough.

    Just finished this on my commute this morning. I enjoyed it but feel it could have been a lot better. The music didn't really get me in the way that I loved the GotG soundtrack or others, and I could have done with a bit more of the driving because the driving in the opening sequence was awesome. Not sure I would recommend over other movies around necessarily but it is a thousand times better than Drive in any case.

    Anyone else feel a little uncomfortable watching stuff with Spacey et al. now? Can we watch/listen to stuff from molesters, rapists, abusers etc. without conscience? I felt stupid thinking it but the fact Spacey was in the movie made me a little uncomfortable.

    I really enjoy Michael Pena's stuff. He does comedy bloody well, and has the chops for the more serious stuff too in my opinion.

    This confuses me. I haven't watched it for a long time, but from what I remember I really liked it (because I'm a big horror fan) and it was a fairly standard horror film.

    I didn't even find that scary tbh. Although I remember my housemate at uni watched it on a date and had to leave the cinema because it was too scary.

    I'm quite keen to watch Wolf Creek again having watched the second. I do remember it being pretty harrowing and wonder if it still has that impact.

    The second is definitely worth a watch if you liked the first. Like Aliens to Alien, kinda thing.
