    Along the same lines (well, crocogators) Rogue is really quite decent and has Sam Worthington in the sort of B-grade meathead role he never should've been allowed to progress beyond.

    Dark Age, which is an 80s Aussie croc film, is also really good and has a surprisingly eco/conservationist slant ahead of its time.

    I need to watch Open Water again, I can't really remember being that impressed with it at the time. I remember much about it though.

    I found it a bit boring but I didn't like Blair witch either, they're sort of the same genre right?
    I wouldn't have said so. Can't really think of any similarity. It's not found footage or horror. It's a pretty accurate and dispassionate account of a true event.

    Maybe Jungle with Daniel Radcliffe. It didn't review to well but I saw an hour long documentary about the event the film is based on and it made me feel in a similar way to Open Water.

    I found the documentary so just watch that instead of the Radcliffe version

    If you guys are looking for a Jaws/Rogue-type film, check out Razorback. It's an Aussie film from the 80s set in the outback. I remember it being quite good.

    I remember this giving me the herby-jeebies when I stayed up to watch it. I was only twelve, mind. Contains some pretty amazing* pig maquette work.

    As naff as its probably going to end up being, I'm quite looking forward to "Crawl", the "flooding town with killer crocs on the prowl" movie.

    Thinking about it, is the one about the tiger on the loose in a house any good, Burning bright?!? or something like that off the top of my head I think it is! Not seen that one.

    Edit - Wow, weird! Watched Brightburn last night and then asked about a film called Burning bright today?!?!

    High Life

    Art housey sci-fi with Robert Pattinson. Its a bit weird with a barely coherent plot (if any), a dash of sexual assault, hints of incest and a woman on a dildo chair in space (which really isn't as erotic as it sounds.)

    Honestly, it's shit.

    Yesterday had a bit of a movie day so watched:

    ROMA
    Brilliant. It's so beautifully shot. I love the slow panning gliding movements of the camera. A lot of the movie you could take as a still and put them in a gallery. The story is well told and well acted and hit me in the feels a number of times. 10/10

    KIN
    Netflix tries and makes a SF movie. Again. It's nice they gave Denis Quaid something to do. I've seen the reviews for this rating it as shit but I just can't agree. It's not brilliant and I thought the ending was a bit silly but yeah it's alright. It's not doing anything new but what it does on an obviously limited budget is ok. If you want an easy watch then there's nothing wrong with it. 6/10

    The Girl with all the Gifts
    I've wanted to see this for a very long time. Maybe just because it's so well regarded and I had my bar set way too high but I came away a bit disappointed. Not to say that it's a bad film because it's far from that. I enjoyed it but I just don't see what that fuss is about. Points for making it an original zombie movie but other than that it's just alright. 7/10

    Oh wait, I was confusing Black Water with Open Water, although Black Water is also decent. But yeah, Open Water is the tensest shark films I've ever seen, and possibly the tensest film I've seen full stop.
    It was just so believable and real. It was only an hour and 20 mins or something but felt much longer, such was the tension.
    Honestly, I kind of hated it. It's a very good piece of filmmaking, but it's too real. Films like Jaws or whatever are fun because they distance themselves enough from reality. Open Water is like watching a YouTube beheading video.
    yeah, a documentary style look really isnít appealing to me, I want interesting visuals and shots not some bland looking bore fest - all too common a look these days.

    I donít have a problem with realism in anyway, but itís hard to make a visually interesting film that way and there arenít many directors that can pull that off

    Bad Times at the El Royale

    This should have been right up my street, it starts out like it'll be a weird mystery noir in a tired motel. It has Jeff Bridges. It has Jon Hamm but he's not shit and dies early enough not to ruin my day.

    But it descends into derivative nonsense. Thor or James Hunt (possibly they are the same Hemsworth?) arrives to chew the scenery. No surprises, et fin

    65/100

    I saw it at a flight recentlish. I agree with you review but would like to ad that I really enjoyed the actors (even Thor(?)). It just went on too long. Not that there were dull moments but it just crammed too much in there for what it was.

    Still, a decent way to pass some time on a flight.

    The length or, ideally, the plot size should have been addressed. It was such a shame it was a thriller without any real surprises.

    I had hoped it was going to be like Identity (when it was Agatha Christie and before it went batshit)

    The Favourite

    Yay, it's great! Just a brilliantly made, written and acted film. More The Lobster than Killing of a Sacred Deer, but less weird than the former and not as dark as the latter. And probably better than both. Lanthimos is well on the way to being a proper heavyweight if he's not there already and he's so original I can't really think if any other filmmaker to compare him to. Big fan.

    Obviously as Olivia Coleman got the Oscar it's recognised how good she is in it, but to confirm, she really is very VERY good. I always think the most impressive acting is when you see a character go through significant change through the course of a film, whilst still clearly staying true and believable to that character. Must be so hard. It's something that I think defines the greatest performances and it's absolutely what she pulls off here. Emma Stone is also extremely good and she is now well beyond the 'Lindsey Lohan but with good parents' label.

    Strongly recommend. I'm looking forward to a rewatch.

    9/10

    @fontgeeksogood I'm surprised you were't surprised. Maybe I'm just not experienced enough in this kind of film but


    That agent being shot dead surprised me
    The sister thing surprised me twice, first the WTF she has kidnapped someone and then that they were sisters
    The bellboy saying he had killed a bunch of ppl surprised me
    How he had killed them surprised me


    So four rather surprising things for me. But yeah, general plot beats were predictable.

    Have that on BR, watching tonight. Love O.C. and I was in from the start! all these sycophants.


    I'm sure you would have seen it, but if not watch Tyrannosaur, she is excellent (of course) in it.

    The Meg

    I was actually looking forward to this despite the reviews but really shouldn't have bothered. As Mr Statham said in an interview, "Where's the fucking blood."

    Completely devoid of any redeeming features. No gore, no tension, no comedy, no character. If only it had taken a look at itself in the mirror and played on the fact that the premise was completely ridiculous and had fun with it it could have been so much better.

    Because they want every plot development to be as obvious as humanly possible.

    Sean Bean does a dodgy American accent. Average film at best.

    Watched The babysitter on Netflix last night. I actually really enjoyed it. It's got a sort of 80's video nasty vibe to it. Just the right right side of ludicrous for me to enjoy it. I can't see it being for everyone though. 7/10
