    It gets so method that Joaquin Phoenix doesn't even show up for filming.

    You Were Never Really There is actually a documentary/guerrilla film making. They just followed him around with a camera for a few weeks to see what happens.

    Is it too soon to suggest the script for that would be him going to Portugal to rescue Maddie with a hammer?

    Not sure him stoving the Mcann's head in with a hammer will go down too well.

    Bit late for that.

    Err to nick that was, I haven't spent my morning stoving their heads in with a hammer and any story that reports otherwise is fake news.

    In order to help him get into character, Phoenix bathed in Cuprinol every night for six months before principal started

    I really don't get the controversy thing. There's plenty more violent films around about disillusioned outcasts with chips on their shoulders. Are the Incels taking it as some kind of champion?
    So I kind of get it. He literally says, "what do you get when you cross a mentally ill loner with a society that doesn't want him? You get what you fucking deserve." And then shoots someone in the face. Then a bunch of people cheer him on (though I think he may have imagined that). I can see how shooting spree types could take that as a rallying cry. But yeah the whole thing seems like the media hoping something would happen for the clicks rather than the incel crowd actually being whipped into a frenzy from the film.

    I quite liked the big brother from the Goonies take on it.

    @Decks and then immediately after that moment people are running out of that place for fear of their lives, as if to directly contradict the fantasy and reality of the situation.

    But media gotta get them controversy baiting clicks! God forbid some of the media admit some of the subtle nuances in the film are actually happening at those moments too.

    Dammit I love this film, really need to go re-watch it!

    Ever see 'Inherent Vice' anyone?

    Both Brolin and Phoenix share a great chemistry in that film.

    Joker

    It's an origin story for a character that doesn't really need an origin, and a comic book movie that clearly doesn't want to be thought of as a comic book movie. However, in spite of this, it just works. It magpies so many aspects from other films it should be being pulled in eight different directions, but instead everything pulls together and it's much more than the sum of its parts. It's a subtle as a candy-striped mallet to the face, and actually, that's not a bad way to interpret the character.

    I think people calling it the movie of the year are stretching a bit, but I think it's the first film this year that I'd really like to see again.

    Pain and Glory

    That’s not the Almodóvar I was looking for. Has its moments, but generally is a snooze fest. Banderas looks good in his old age but is not convincing as the person he says he is. Some nice colours. A dick.

    Avoid.

    3/10

    In The Tall Grass - Absolutely amazing!

    ... not really, it's another bang average Netflix movie.

    It probably won't thrill anyone to learn that it's kind of like The Happening meets The Triangle. The problem is, it doesn't really commit to The Triangle premise, it's rules just aren't as well used or defined and, as The Happening demonstrated, shots of plants shaking about with a noise being played isn't very scary.

    It's the kind of film that would have made a decent Twilight zone episode but you just can't make a near two hour movie out of a few dickheads wandering around a field.

    5/10

    And why is Patrick Wilson in so many films?

    Yeah, read a review of that earlier. Another Stephen King adaptation that doesn't quite have the legs to see it through as a film

    Coincidentally watched You Were Never Really Here last night as it come up on Amazon Prime.

    Really enjoyed it, reminded me a lot of Taxi Driver. Bonus points for having Rawls from The Wire too. Soundtrack was excellent.

    @nickthegun

    He was in The Hollow Point with Lovejoy in a Netflix film the other day. I actually thought that was pretty good, he was definitely passable in it.

    Passable is probably the best way to decribe him as an actor. Has he ever played any other role than "man with mild constipation" though?

    Intrigued to see Hard Candy was one of his earliest roles.

    Actually yeah he was pretty pretty good in Fargo playing that mildly constipated sheriff. He was pretty good in Hard Candy as the mildly constipated paedophile too.

    watched a few films on the plane last saturday

    Yesterday
    At first its ok as its light and easy to watch as you stuck on a plane but as it goes on it becomes more cheesy and vomit inducing. Its like too much sweets
    The actor who plays Jack, has no chemistry with Lily James and Ed sheeran is in this and he is fucking awful, if you saw his terrible cameo in GoT, imagine that but a quarter or more of the film

    5/10

    Child's play (remake)
    decent remake/reboot and updates how chucky is evil. Some nice dark humour

    7.5/10


    Xmen dark phoenix
    Thankfully the last fox xmen film, its fucking awful, right down there with Last Stand or that Wolverine origins film (actually would watch the last stand than this). None of the well known cast in the film really wants to be there, fassbender looks bored, Lawrence didn't give a fuck about the film. The reshoot train sequence at the end is the only good bit in the film

    4/10
