    You donít need to qualify your opinions with things like ďI think, I feel, for meĒ etc. Itís a review, your opinion is implied. You can strike all those out and itíll sharpen up your writing. In fact an extension of that point is a test copy editors do is to keep on striking out words to see if the meaning stays the same.

    Ah. Thanks. The reason I put those in is because people were saying that I was stating my opinion as fact. Appreciate your advice.

    The art of reviewing is finding the balance between objective Ďfactí statements and editorial, and developing a unique style that means you do both without signposting the latter (and annoying your readers). Itís a much harder format than people realise. Iím shit at it.

    Brazil

    Probably not the best film to watch hungover and you need a nap a quarter of the way through. Been a while since I last seen this, think the first half is great middle sags a little bit and the ending is just bonkers. Didnít really click for me on this viewing, nevertheless the playfulness of it is incredible. So many visual gags, itís almost a stop motion film at times with its inventiveness, and coming from Gilliam you can see how it has come to be. Does contain a great video game boss battle though.

    Black Panther.

    Probably one of the worst Marvel films I've seen. The CGI was particularly rubbish, looking rushed and low budget relative to some of the other movies in the franchise. The main bad guy was shit and uninteresting, as was the title character. Tim from The Office seemed out of place and nothing about the story or setting grabbed me at any point throughout. Very average.

    5/10

    @Pierre2k Is it better or worse than 1922? The girl I'm seeing and me tried to watch that piece of shit but we just ended up pissing ourselves at Jane's extreme southern drawl.

    Then watched The Ritual instead. Which was okay(ish

    Gerald's Game wasn't too bad so if you want a Stephen King film you could do a lot worse
    Not watched 1922, so can't compare, but I'd stirgfle to imagine 1922 being worse. Fancy watching Gerald's Game. Need to add it to my list.

    1922 is actually pretty good. It's a slow burn, creeping dread kind of thing.

    Mortal Engines

    Really not as bad as I'd been lead to believe. Sumptuous sfx, and it was predictable but it was..a..good.....







    ...romp

    Another vote for Avengement over here too. Almost parody, but entertaining.

    Canít disagree with any of that, one of the Marvel movies that watching once is more than enough.

    @Juz I liked it at the cinema, didnít really like the Asian women and her crew bit she was a bit of a poor actress I thought. But I liked the personal beats of the story (as unoriginal as they were, the main actors were likeable enough).
    Id have probably watched another, doubt weíll ever get it.

    I actually really appreciate those kinds of qualifiers. If Rogueywon had said "I feel The Last Guardian was shit" rather than simply stating it as if it was a fact, I wouldn't have punched a hole in my bedroom wall last week.

    Weirdly (and Iím not really sure why this is) I think opinion qualifiers are somehow still important in internet discussion posts, even though opinion is still equally implied. Probably something to do with the unwritten rules of actual conversation and politeness.

    I realise you were kinda joking but I find it really interesting.

    It's also the difference between a conversation and a review.

    'The Black Panther is garbage' is fine in a review but 'I thought the Black Panther was garbage' is much less aggressive in a general chat about it.

    I put "imo" and "for me" and stuff like that in posts (even if opinion is implied, making them redundant) because I think people will get mad if I don't.

    But if that's not the case, I will try to cut down on it!

    If you do it too much, it makes it look like you arenít confident of your opinion and are terrified of offending people.

    Itís actually one of my pet hates IRL and one of the reasons Iíve stopped listening to talksport as much. They have so many ex-pros on there who are terrified of offending their next meal ticket, every statement is a Ďfor meí sandwich.

    It is because forumites are mostly anti social fuckwits. Everything needs to be stated explicitly or the keyboard warriors will bad-faith it to the ground.

    Contrast that with select bits of Twitter, where communication is largely implied or done via memes. Different users, different cognitive skills.

    All in my most humble of subjective opinions.

    you would (if you do not already) despise me in real life, nearly every comment that comes out of my mouth is, to be honest, for me or in my opinion.

    He did manage to get "keyboard warriors" and "bad faith" in there though which fills his buzzword quoter for the last hour.

    Professor Marston and the Wonder Woman

    A biopic or how Wonder Woman came to be. A lot kinkier than I was expecting. Enjoyed it a lot.

    It was actually a good film which doesnít just look at the creation of Wonder Woman but ... well a lot. If anything the creation of Wonder Woman is actually a small part of the film in which it details the life of Marston whom was a professor in psychology, the creator the lie detection test and one part of a mťnage a trios. In the background the politics of comic books, and the rise of fascism (both literal and artistically) tie the film to the modern day alongside also being a LBGTQI film at its heart too. Itís a very satisfying film with all three leads (Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall and Bella Heathcote) delivering very good performances.

    4.25/5
