    Brightburn - 4/10

    Worth a watch for some spectacular gore moments. The rest is a bit meh. Surely Ma & Pa Brent would have had Brandon down the docs after the fork. Characters act the most stupid of stupids. A bit annoying. Feels made for Netflix. This one got away from the Gunns.
    I hate movies which only make sense if the characters have never seen a movie. Ever.

    Alien

    Watching it now. Easily one of the best films ever made. How can't they make films that feel like this anymore? Is it just because we grew up with them that they feel so visceral and real?

    @Decks

    I reckon a lot comes down to Alien being ‘in camera’ and not CGI. Some of the model effects and composing of said effects look a bit ropey but I find the lighting and pace of the sequences more convincing than many current films. No OTT hyper-kinetic blur-fest.

    Also, the film credits us with some intelligence. When I watch Alien it plays out in an almost documentary style with us as fly-on-the-wall.

    Fantastic/100

    Edit: the 4K edition is worth watching!

    I watched Alien after Aliens and some 10 years after it was made and it doesn’t work for me at all.

    Yeah but you are wrong. I first watched Alien around 1992-93 and I've always found it fairly timeless.

    I watched Hard Time at the El Royal last night. Solid movie, it felt fairly self contained at the start, a bit like watching a stage play, and the movie seems to keep revealing new layers and almost changing genres. A bit of a slow start, and maybe some flat dialogue in places, but very tense final act where it very cleverly brings it all together.

    Alien is a stone-cold classic.

    Aliens is a good action movie.

    I watched Aliens before Alien and still prefer it, although they're both cracking films.

    Arctic

    I generally enjoy watching Mads and he has played some awesome roles. This trend continues in this survival story. He's on his own, and with few words carries the role and the depth of the situation. I really felt for him.

    A most violent year...a most dull and boring 2 hours.

    I have obviously missed something here as looking at review score, the film is loved almost universally by critics and norms alike.

    I did manage to get to the end but as I say found it dull.

    A score ?

    Arctic - 2018 movie starring Mads Mikkelsen

    Stumbled across this after a Reddit poster recommended it, only 99p to rent on Amazon Prime. Loved it, a brilliantly told survival story about a guy stranded in the Artic after his plane crashes. Perfectly acted by Mads Mikkelsen and very well directed by Joe Penna.

    9/10

    Spider-Verse is easily the best Spider-Man film imo and one of the best superhero films (though there aren't many that I particularly rate).

    I feel the same. Spiderverse is amazing. So, what if it's a cartoon? It's a comic book film, the best medium for it.

    Seriously one of the best superhero films I've ever seen.

    Alien covenant 2/10

    Good looking but a fucking cowardly film as it pretty much makes Prometheus redundant by not expanding on it all and throwing it in the bin

    Ridley Scott has lost it in my opinion.

    Pledge - 3/10

    Nerdy kids nobody that nobody likes get invited by a lovely, young lady to some place where cool people hang out and pledge to a fraternity which offers them fortune and glory and all that usual bullshit.

    There film is basically torture porn and whilst I have no problem with that kind of film at all, I found this film to be poor. Yes, there is some nastiness along the way but it's not all that bad. And even though it may not seem too matter for this kind of film, the characters, plot and acting are uniformly terrible.

    It's also very, very predictable. I wasn't surprised by anything in this film apart from how shockingly poor it was.

    Batman: Hush - 8.5/10

    Whilst I think the live action DC films have all been extremely poor since Man of Steel tried to kickstart a shared universe , the animation studio seem to be producing some excellent feature length films. This is one of them.

    I don't think they could have failed with this one. The source comic book series is one of the highest rated and most cherished by Batman fans. I think it's a brilliant story and the animation and voice acting is superb throughout.

    If you like these kind of films, then I think it's the best one (apart from Spider-Verse) in a very long time.

    Rumours are that this (or The Long Halloween) is being used as an influence for the upcoming The Batman film. I'd be happy with that.

    Death Do Us Part - 3/10

    Billed as 'War of the Roses meets Shaun of the Dead', I don't this film comes anywhere near even remotely close in terms of quality. But I knew that going into it. I didn't expect it to be this terrible though.

    I don't even remember that much about it. A couple argue and don't get on with each other and some kind of zombie apocalypse event means they're stranded in their flat. A couple of other people end up in the flat and 'hilatiry' ensues.

    There are a few decent scenes and a couple of laughs but I found the whole film to be a bit of a snooze fest. I almost fell asleep twice watching ti.

    Ready player one

    Decent if formulaic... which given its influences nothing surprising. It’s fun but kind of depressing that it is fair reflection of people living by culture identity and given the possibilities of VR, it is used for what it is, which to be fair the film actually addresses both points positively and negatively. Also appreciated that as a film that centres around gaming it understands them culturally but also some of the more sinister aspects of it that have reared their head in the last 5 or so years.

    Overall it works, carried me along and involved me enough I forgot about all the nods and references that could easily grate so much. Solid, if unspectacular.


    3/5

    Shazam - 4/10

    Really wanted to like this more after hearing positive things, but it had a lot of problems, not the least of which was the runtime of over 2 hours, which was completely unecessary for such a thin story.

    Then there's the plot. I'm willing to overlook some of the minor fantasy elements that didn't make complete sense - or were conceptually poor/daft - or the many plot conveniences. However, something I couldn't forgive were the reasons behind the protagonist's main goal of locating his mother, and becoming orphaned in the first place, which were utterly contrived and ridiculous.

    Also, Shazam never bothered to tell the protagonist that multiple people can touch the staff and gain identical powers to the protagonist which might have been useful to mention from the start!

    The characters were all distinctly average, but generally likeable. The film did at least bother to give the antagonist reasons for being evil, but then did nothing further to develop him beyond a two dimensional caricature of a "bad guy" which was strange.

    The special effects were also average and in parts well below par for what you'd expect from a modern superhero film.

    The film had a few fun moments, and was mildly entertaining, but don't expect anything more.

    The Canal - 7/10

    I really enjoyed this horror film. It's got a pretty interesting story to tell. It's a haunted house story that follows someone into a state of madness.

    The whole film is very low-key and it's a welcome change. Sometimes it's nice to have a break from all the usual Hollywood horror franchises of which I've not watched any. I think I may have seen The Conjuring but that's about it.

    Anyhow, I think the acting's good and it certainly held my attention right till the end. It's very atmospheric too.

    Just seen that he's got a new film coming out in a couple of weeks. A western called Never Grow Old. I may well check this out.

    Hellboy (2019) - 3.5/10

    One hell of a mess! I found it so instantly forgettable that I had to struggle to recall even seeing it after an hour, when someone asked me what I'd been watching.

    The biggest warning sign is the film has Milla Jovovich in it. A vast majority of her films suck balls. But I though it would be worth a punt despite terrible reviews just to see what it was like.

    On the positive side, I think David Harbour makes a decent enough Hellboy. The always excellent Ian McShane is...excellent in this too. That's about it.

    The effects are all over the place. I thought they varied from decent to utterly terrible sometimes within seconds in the same scene. The support characters are excruciatingly boring and unimaginative. I didn't give two hoots about the plot. I just found the whole thing to be a boring, dreary mess with hardly any redeeming features. It also seemed to go on for an age.

    Actually, the pig man was pretty funny. There is that.

    It really is a disgrace. He's pissing all over his legacy for a quick buck. Thank fuck he had little to do with Blade Runner 2049. The man is a hack who somehow made two of the best sci-fi films ever made. I don't think he's made a decent movie since.

    I hated it. The astronaut is a chippy, chirpy cunt.

    Gladiator was okay but I think that was basically a fluke because he managed to get Russell Crowe before he blew up (figuratively and not so figuratively). It's also horribly inaccurate from an historical perspective. Alexander is a miles better movie.
