    Venom - 6/10

    A really odd film. Tom hardy and venom themselves are actually pretty good. Enjoyed the comedy bits. Everything around that is pretty awful and cringeworthy

    A ghost story:

    Very slow to start, pretentious, but quite touching towards the end. Some interesting ideas around death and limbo.

    Would you be interested in details of the sequel at all?

    Downsizing - 6/10 - What a weird film. The trailer for this presented it as a completely different type of film to what it is. It's a slow character study with some sci-fi elements not a whacky comedy about miniaturised people.

    I actually quite enjoyed it overall thought I can understand the bad reviews as it was clearly advertised as a totally different type of film to what it is.

    @glaeken yeah, I went into it thinking it was a comedy (that's what the trailer at the cinema suggested) so I wasn't that impressed with the reality

    I, Tonya

    Enjoyed it. Kind of sad for her if that's really how it went down. Margot Robbie is really a very good actress. The mother was obviously great as well as was the fat guy. The wholesale theft of Scorsese's directing style was a bit odd though.

    Tom Hardy was good, fun action pieces, potential to be good franchise.

    Shit plot, shit bad guy, seemed really rushed throughout the whole movie. One CGI action scene was very reminiscent of BvS.

    Still 6/10 Enjoyed it.

    Venom - almost 7/10

    Better than I expected considering the reviews, some good action and funny moments. Venom looked great and its fairly violent. Much better than the dross that is Ant Man and Wasp.

    Did feel rushed though and another 20 mins on the running time would have been welcome, interested to see if they release an extended version.

    We saw Venom last night too and I agree with the comments in the thread so far. Just a bit odd but Hardy and Venom were actually quite good. Venom has all the best lines by miles (actual laugh out loud funny in places). I really don't think it made sense without the inclusion Spider-Man in the origin but oh well. 6.5/10.

    The Shape of Water

    What a weird but lovely film. The performances are brilliant, the setting is gorgeous, and it has some truly beautiful moments. There are some scenes that seem a bit out of place on first viewing, but everything comes together nicely and makes sense in the context of the plot. And the central concept may seem rather odd, but it is supposed to be a fantasy film.

    There's an interesting theory that Elisa is part of the same species as the fish man (hence the gills at the end), which makes their romance a lot less WTF than it initially seems.

    Deadpool 2

    I get why people think it's not as good as the first, but I can't help but wonder if it's just that the shtick has worn a bit thin by the second one. In some ways I think it was superior to the first. Cable and Domino are way more interesting than whoever the baddie was in the first and Colossus.

    But yeah, it was fine. It passed the time as well as the first did for me, and I'm a sucker for all the meta gags despite them being incredibly low hanging fruit.

    Malevolent - another mediocre film taking the well trodden path straight to Netflix.

    Some annoying 20 something's stage live GhostWatch sessions in people's houses only to end up doing it for real.

    The kind of 'film' BBC used to do as like a Storyville or whatever it was called once upon a time.

    Celia Imrie is in it using Bob Mortimers voice from his Highland tales.

    I had the one with the Jordan Henderson and Peter Beardsley song on the way to work this morning and I almost crashed the car.

    If you're bored, search for 'ben pics' on YouTube. He animates some of their sketches and the herderson song video he did is a peach.

    Toxic Avenger 3 5/10

    The first two are better. But it has its moments.

    Saw 3 films at the LFF yesterday. I can't recall ever having done back to back films at the cinema before. It was strange watching 3 tonally different pieces in such a way, enjoyable though (especially as I don't go to the cinema much having 2 little'uns under the age of 5)

    Anyway, films as follows:

    Widows - 8/10

    You could call it a romp. Thriller/heist film with a great cast (Liam Neeson, aside) on great form. There were so many strands to it that I did feel some characters were underdeveloped, but then it did keep it to a respectable run time. Recommended.

    Border - 7/10

    Very weird art house pic. Engaging rather than enjoyable. It's a Swedish tale (the director, who introduced it described it as a fairytale), based on a story by the author of the original Let The Right One In. I won't go into plot details but just to say it's about an (to use the character's own description) "ugly" woman who works as a customs officer and has the ability to smell emotions on people.

    It was a very... I can't think of the word, so will just say 'textured' film. Lots of close ups of woodland, wildlife and people eating grubs.

    Recommended for fans of odder pics.

    Colette - 7/10

    Solid period and character drama about a woman who writes hugely successful novels in her husband's name. Her battle for recognition is one side, but actually relatively little of the film, it's more about her exploring her sexuality and realising that she deserves and should seek recognition for herself, rather than be content in the shadows.

    It was full of interesting characters and the husband wasn't an out-and-out villain just a flawed man seeking the limelight. Knightly (who was there with director and producers to introduce) was solid but in a role that felt in her comfort zone.

    It had very contemporary themes in an old setting.

    Again, recommend if you like that kind of thing.

    Other scores:

    10/10 - audience. Kermode's code of conduct fully adhered to.

    10/10 - getting to the cinema to see something other than a kids film

    22 July

    Another Greengrass atrocity epic. It was well done, but I don't really see the point in these sort of spree killer document things. Elephant, Polytechnique etc. They're all the same. Greengrass tries to give it some foundation and arc by following the recovery of one of the survivors but I don't really get the point of making it in the first place.
