    @Mola_Ram Yeah, my assumption was mostly based on the trailer and very
    Ring-looking poster. It was indeed excellent though, just very different to the way it's presented.

    I watched black panther for a second time the other night, yeah it was alright, it's standard fare really doesn't stand as one of life's great masterworks.

    The Death of Stalin

    Was really looking forward to this as I'm a huge fan of In The Loop.

    It starts really strongly but seems to run out of steam (and laughs) as it progresses. Also felt it was a little too pleased with itself and many of the actors were a little OTT in their performances.

    Jason Isaacs pretty much steals the show though and is almost worth the price of admission alone.

    6/10

    Collateral - 9/10

    10/10 movie for 3/4 of the runtime, that falls apart a bit at the end. There's still a sublime collection of individual scenes here, the scene with Javier Bardem's cameo being the highlight. It also has one of the best Cruise performances, up there with Magnolia IMO. The script is drum tight, until it isn't, the digital nighttime photography is interesting, it just has some weird song choices.

    Tag - 6/10

    A bunch of man-children take a month out each year to play Tag for 30 years. Based on a true story, they show footage of them doing it during the end credits, it doesn't look anywhere near as fun as the film makes it out to be and none of them look like Jon Hamm.

    It reminded me of Game Night in the humour, but that film did it much better. Still fairly entertaining.

    I was going to watch Last Jedi last night, ended up watching Rogue One instead. Best SW film by a mile.

    Pixels - 2/10

    Why are Adam Sandler films still being made? I can't remember ever meeting anyone who enjoys them.

    Probably one of the most underrated movies ever made IMO and itís up there with Heat as Michael Mannís best work.

    Havenít actually watched it in about 5/10 years.....well overdue!

    I was big in to Audioslave at the time, I remember having a fangasm in the cinema when Shadow on the Sun started playing during the coyote scene... that was awesome. Love that movie.

    The dude from BttF says he's really nice, so maybe people like him enough to throw money at him?

    Might give Miami Vice a rewatch, not one of Mann's better movies IMO but it's gotten a big critical reappraisal recently and I want to see if it's justified.

    The Endless - 7/10

    Interesting indie with Lovecraftian undertones.

    2 brothers who left a cult under acrimonious circumstances 10 years prior feel an urge to go back for one last visit. They are welcomed warmly, but they notice odd things, like the fact noone seems to have aged. Then it gets really weird.

    It's very low budget but often it works in its favour, there's an earthiness that adds to the authenticity of what's happening. There's the occasional shot that looks like it was done as a film school project but otherwise, it's a mind-bending couple of hours.

    The Endless was great. I was amazed at what those directors did with such a tiny budget.

    Agreed, just like The Snowman.

    Red Letter Media actually brought some attention to this a few years ago with their review of Jack and Jill. If you get a chance, definitely give it a watch (it's in two parts on YouTube). They make the case that Sandler and his production company are effectively Hollywood scam artists.

    Give the animated prequel Seoul Station a go. It's not quite as good, but it's not far off, and it's interesting to see the outbreak from a different perspective.

    I just noticed that the bluray comes with the directors' first film, Resolution, and it's a prequel to Endless! It stars the 2 guys in a cabin at the back end of that film.

    Yeah, though I wouldn't really call it a "prequel". Although it's neat to know more about those characters, you don't really need that backstory to enjoy The Endless.

    Alien Invasion: S.U.M.1 looks as dreadful as the title suggests. Ramsey from GoT leads, anyone took one for the team yet?

    I'm tempted, tbh.

    Ready player one.

    Thought it was all a bit meh really and felt like switching it off half way through. Iron giant saved it from being a total shitshow.

    Bone Tomahawk has been on my to-watch list for ages and tonight was the night. Thought it was great, I do love a western and the tip towards horror worked well. Some properly nasty bits, and some good banter between characters. Well worth a watch.

    Attack the Block - 8/10

    Forgotten how fun this movie is. Also has a bunch of stars before they went stratospheric. Really well filmed and would like to see more from Joe Cornish, always liked his and Adam Buxton's stuff.

    Monsters - 8/10

    Remarkable what they accomplished with a budget of $500k. Looks fabulous and the characters are a bit annoying but deliberately so. It's also pretty damning of the US, and they built a wall around Mexico, 7yrs before Trump.

    A Quiet Place - 9/10
    Great film with a foreboding sense of dread throughout. Gets a point knocked off because I couldn't help but see him as Big Tuna throughout.
