    The Favourite

    Good. Did think it lost steam in its last third, but then i don't know what i was really expecting to happen. Olivia Colman is great (as usual), but thought both Rachael Weisz and Emma Stone were terrific as well. First half is very funny though, the era being ripe for absurdist comedy that the director excels in, with Colman single handedly bringing the tragedy of the film. Not sure why i didn't love it though, i felt the same way about Death of Stalin afterwards, it left me a bit cold. Which i don't quite get as i normally like books, tv, films etc that political skew.

    4/5
    Pretty much exactly the same feeling about the Favourite, enjoyed but not to the extent the media did at the time. Rachel Weisz in anything tends to warp my bias positively though. (boner joke)?

    Yeah good film. Something I find kind of irritating about Spike Lee's directing style and use of music but the characters and the performances were great. Need more of this shit to shine a light on how the world is going backwards at the minute too.

    Baby Driver on Netflix.

    Yeah, that was very nice. I'm not sure I liked how he actually became a cold-blooded killer at the end and the girl seemed awfully happy to go along with it all, but I thought it wrapped up nicely. A coherent film, good from start to finish for once. Nice shooting in time with the music.

    9/10

    He didn’t actually kill anyone though, that’s kind of the whole point

    You could possibly argue manslaughter, but it's definitely a kill

    John Wick 3 8/10

    If you liked the first two then you'll definitely like this. Loads of inventively violent set pieces and it explores JW's backstory a bit more.
    Solid 8/10 from me too. Some wince-inducing killing methods, most of the people in the cinema were like "oooofff" at a couple of points.

    I kinda liked the back story elements. It's all very silly. Lovejoy good as always.

    @Decks, you get to see where John learned to roly poly

    Yes! Definitely Firefly vibes, albeit way over to the "just scraping by at the bottom" end of the spectrum.

    8/10 is fair but in my hart it's a solid 11 / 10

    Upgrade 8/10

    Really enjoyed this even though the film offered no surprises in the story. Good blend of humour and violence.

    Brawl in Cell Block 99

    I kind of enjoyed it, but it's a weird film. Pacing seemed strange. Huge amount of set-up for him to get to prison (let alone block 99) which was devoid of tension as we knew he'd end up there somehow. Then once he was finally there it wrapped up very quickly.

    And for a film that's so unashamedly hanging its hat on the gratuitous violence peg, the violence was quite clunkily choreographed and the effects a little weak. I get that was all part of the grindhouse charm, but I'm not sure it managed to pull of the style authentically.

    That said, it's still good fun and I enjoyed both Vince Vaughn and Don Johnson's performances, the latter in particular.

    6/10

    Deepwater Horizon - 8/10

    A pleasant surprise. Was expecting a cheap cash-in as it were, but I'm in awe at how they made that movie (though reading about the production budget I can see where it went). Mark Wahlberg plays his usual character effectively enough, but Kurt Russell is great. Just a shame John Malkovich is mis-cast.

    Commando ninja

    Was a crowd funded film that's free to watch on YouTube. A bit in the vain of king fury in that it's an homage to 80's movies like commando and blood sport (with some time travel thrown in) ridiculous but in a good way. Well worth a look if your into that style of movie.

    The Night Eats The World - 7/10

    Indie weirdo survives zombie outbreak trying to get his tapes back from his exes Parisian apartment.

    Noroi - 9/10

    Probably the best documentary style horror around. Really enjoyable with a great storyline and some unsettling imagery. Up there with Audition in terms of the best J-Horror I've seen.

    The war of the worlds Tom Cruise edition - 5/10 - Not seen this since it came out. It's actually OK for first 3rd of the film but it turns in to Tom Cruise on one long escort mission to two children who exhibit various levels of stupidity that create situations they have to be rescued from by their protector Tom Cruise. This drags the whole thing down. The effects look Ok though and the action scenes are pretty effective.

    Can't help but feel a little short-changed by this.

    The acting is great, but I didn't get any real sense of tension and the ending (not including the real-life footage) was unsatisfying.

    An important film yes, but not a great film imho.

    Then the most annoying one fucks off for the last third of the movie and turns up fine anyway.

    I tried to watch Upgrade and found it to be so shit I couldn't finish.
    Horrible writing and acting smeared over a super clichéd story.

    What made me turn it off was how clumsily it did the "Torture is a laughing matter" thing that's still popular for some reason. I laugh at comedic violence in comedies. THis isn't a comedy though, yet it's trying to be "Oh noes, I cut up a man! Oooopss...!"

    To be avoided

    The Girl With All The Gifts

    Enjoyed this. Seemed like an original take on a pretty crowded genre.


    Snowpiercer

    Completely mental but a lot of fun. Pretty sure though that the overall message of the film is that ' Poor people should know their place or they'll ruin it for everyone. ' :lol:


    Tolkien

    Don't know how close to reality it is but it's an interesting look at Tolkien's early years.


    Pirate Radio

    A good cast make an amusing but entirely predictable British feel-good comedy about a pirate radio station broadcasting from the coast in 70s.

    John Wick 3

    Sensational. It has great, inventive fight scenes (personal highlights are the library fight and the knife fight), and doubles down even more on the crazy "world of assassins" lore. It's probably the best modern action series imo, give or take a Mission: Impossible.

    9/10

    EDIT: Also, I can confirm the existence of at least one perfectly-executed Keanu-forward-roll, in the fight with all the attack dogs.

    John Wick 3 8/10

    It's John Wick ramped up to 11. As said above some amazingly inventive fight scenes from the off, but after peaking mid way with little pause in the action, there didn't seem to be any build up to a finale. Entertaining most definitely one of the best action movies I've seen, but relentless to the point I let out a yawn during the final battle.

    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum: 5/10

    It bored me. Liked the OG, found 2 pretty dull, and while this was a touch better, I found myself wishing it to end about 20 minutes before it finally did.

    Looks like I agree with Anthony - final fight sequence didn't do it for me either.

    It did feel very video-gamey at times, particularly during the large shootouts. And I guess the final fights too, though it was great to see The Raid guys actually get to use their fighting skills in a different movie (they were completely wasted in The Force Awakens).

    John Wick 3 - 7/10

    First 30 minutes were great. Too many of the later action sequences started to drag, particularly the one with Halle Berry where after a few minutes it's kind of "yep, still shooting dudes". 2 had a similar problem I felt.

    Also the fight against the 2 dudes from The Raid kind of felt off as well. Felt like they were toning down the intensity so Reeves could keep up but not all that convincingly? The fight felt like it had no intensity.

    I don't really feel like there's any stakes either, there's very little sense of threat in any of the action sequences.

    About 20 minutes too long. Probably because the fights dragged on. Appreciated the humour though. And I'm not sure if it was supposed to be funny at the repeated throwing into glass but I found it hilarious.
