    Michael Shannon gets his fingers ripped off and his wife randomly flops one of her tits out. It's got something for everyone.

    9/10

    Michael Shannon pulling a face AND tits?

    If it doesn't get an Oscar we will have proof the system is rigged.

    I just like how fucking weird it was. And also the Mum out of Paddington finger blasting herself in the bath and than shagging a fish. And it did win Oscars.

    Started watching Tomb Raider but fell asleep. Might watch the rest of it tonight. Some of the characters were really annoying and that bicycle scene was a bit nauseating.
    Don't get your hopes up. Watched it just over a week ago and it doesn't really get any better. Some of the action is okay, but the characters and plot are wafer thin. The tone is all over the place as well; seems to be stuck halfway between old doesn't take itself seriously Tomb Raider and the new darker take.
    I watched this recently too. I'm torn on it - it's not great, but I think it has potential, should they decide to continue the franchise again. The casting of Lara is good, I like that they paid homage to the recent games quite well in terms of the island setting and the weapons/skillsets.
    However, it was also pretty dull and I didn't really care about anything that was happening on screen.

    So maybe a 5 or 6, with potential for a decent sequel if they can inject more character and fun.

    I stuck it on expecting the worst and it was surprisingly watchable I thought. Total rubbish of course but I've seen far worse. Even my wife, who wasn't at all interested, put her phone down and watched it. 6.5/7 is about right for me.

    Crimes of Passion

    A Ken Russell film, staring Kathleen Turner, looking.. better than she does these days. I didnít want to say it - her legs look in perfect shape. Back to the story, Google it. The Blu-ray restored from 1984 looks good. For a Ken Russell effort, its watchable, better then expected, and outright hilarious in places.

    China Blue/10


    Next up.. the fully resorted Blu-ray of Runaway Train
    That film is superb. Got the restoration youíve mentioned but not got around to watching it yet. Iím after the 4K restorations of 2001 and The Deer Hunter. I think 4K restorations of Clint Eastwoodís Dollars trilogy is arriving this year.

    I remember watching Crimes of Passion with Ken Russellís commentary over it where heís talking to the writer. Very interesting conversation but at one point they took about 5 minutes just gushing over Turnerís legs. Was a bit odd.
    I'll have to have a re watch with the commentary on. I have the Arrow Video release 2K restoration.

    Watched the rest of Tomb Raider. Was alright for a videogame film. Set your expectations to "something to watch while you wash some clothes and make the dinner" and it's fine.

    Unbreakable - still the best superhero film Samuel L Jackson has been in. 8/10.

    Gerald's Game - bit grim and some scenes are draw out but given the premise that was necessary. Worth a look but nothing special. 7/10

    Anyone seen "You were never really here". Joachim Phoenix (sp?) in a dark and dreamlike Taxi-Driver role. It is on Prime and it is excellent.

    Hannibal 3/10

    They turned Lecter into some sort of quipster anti-hero. It's so boring that Julianne Moore looks bored just being in it. It has made for TV like direction and terrible pacing that never seems to actually ramp up until the last 20 mins, devoid of tension leading up to that.

    Ridley Scott really has made some awful stinkers. Has to be my least favourite sequel.

    Muppets Most Wanted

    Have bit of a soft spot for the Muppets but didn't quite enjoy this one compared to its predecessor.

    Also far too much Ricky Gervais.

    7/10

    Death of Stalin -8/10

    Not laughed at a film that much in ages, although the contrivances did grind after a while. Worth it fir Jason Issacs alone.

    12 Strong - 8/10

    Cracking first 2/3rds let down by final pew-pew

    The Founder - 7/10

    Illuminating and well acted film that missed having a purpose.

    Ready Player One

    It's had a fairly lukewarm reception here at best, but I found myself enjoying it.

    Its not great as such, but I felt more emotionally engaged than I expected. I enjoyed the book too, and have no issues with the changes.

    It was a fun romp. 7/10

    My biggest lol of any film last year was right at the end when they are burning Beriya and Paul Whitehouse offhandedly says 'I'm knackered! It's been a busy old week...'

    Shape of Water.

    Very good. As mentioned above it has something for everyone. Any film with Michael Shannon and Sally Hawkins is pretty much a guaranteed watch from me and they don't disappoint.. Shannon perhaps playing his typecast role but it never tires. Hawkins is great.

    At times it feels quite like a Jeunet film, it has that flair but also precision that his films have. I haven't really explored Del Toros back catalogue other than Pans labyrinth and Hellboy so wouldn't know whether that craft is really there in his other films.

    4.5/5

    I don't think he's quite as idiosyncratic as Jeunet. I always think of him more as a Mexican Tim Burton.

    Bit harsh I think, his films tend to have a bit more about them than Burtons. Especially the shit Burton makes these days. I certainly don't think Burton has a Pan's Labyrinth in him.
