    The Gentleman.

    Guy Ritchie turned up to 11.

    Has some entertaining moments but not as many as Snatch, LSATSB or Rock N Rolla which are all better films.

    7/10

    Rock n rolla was one of the worst films Iíve seen, surely it canít be worse than that, it just didnít work for me at all, to the point I canít remember a single thing about it other than it had zero charm to it.

    If you didn't like that you'll hate this.

    Get Out

    Extremely creepy. Whilst the plot pretty much played out as I anticipated, it wasn't really diminished as a result. Mrs Evild was also gripped, which is particularly rare for a horror.

    God, I remember going to the premiere and meeting Ritchie. He was lacking in personality you could say.

    Late to the party, but

    12 Years a Slave 9/10

    Absolutely mesmerising from start to finish. Nice performances from everyone, lovely cinematography, beautiful soundtrack (which bizarrely was by Hans BWARP Zimmer) and great pacing. Perhaps one or two instances of Oscar-baiting monologues, but that was it.

    Anyone seen Widows?

    Yeah, I saw Widows. Thought it was a bit 'cold'. I found it hard to care for the characters as the tone is quite distant.

    I liked rock n rolla. In fact I love lock, snatch and rock. Probably go and see gentleman tomorrow, that or 1917.

    Heavy Metal

    Animated anthology from 1981.

    Saw it years ago but has mostly forgotten it. Viewed through a modern lense it's a bit shit.

    It can be visually interesting, but also visually inconsistent. The work was spread between different studios and some are better than others to say the least. But even when it looks good static it constantly moves with exaggerated gestures. There's some nice rotoscoping but even that feels like it's moving through molasses.

    The stories are pretty mixed, but range from 'actually shit' to 'woukd be okay for an A level project'. It does feel like it was written by a 16 year old boy. But it does mean you to get to see tits.

    Loved that. Us has just popped up on Sky. Wife wasn't keen on Friday night, as she thought it would creep her out too much. I'll persist this weekend....

    The Running Man

    The second most 80's movie ever (first place would be Escape From NY). But it doesn't make a lot of sense, even by Arnie flick standards. It has some clear Warriors vibes, but fails to live up to it. Decent action, but even that is subpar all things considered. Not one of Schwarzenegger's best.

    Hmm, maybe I need to watch again, I did buy it. It was back when if Iíd missed a film at the cinema Iíd just buy it. Thanks to that Iíve loads of shit films on dvd and Blu-ray destined for a landfill site when I die.

    The book its based on is rather good - one of Stephen King's better efforts and actually has a relatively decent ending :-)

    Forgotten (on Netflix)

    Korean movie about a man whose brother gets kidnapped, who then reappears 19 days later as a seemingly different person. It's a mystery! And also a family drama, and a thriller, and a social commentary.

    The story goes places that are honestly pretty dumb, but it's a twistily enjoyable kind of watch if you don't think too hard about it.

    8.2/10

    I loved Widows too. Completely different obviously, and completely different to anything else he has made. Steve McQueen is a top-notch filmmaker.

    Ralph Wrecks The Internet 5/10

    All the best bits were in the trailer and it was more bothered about making sure it showed the "darker side of the internet" and less about making the audience laugh. It seems to have reviewed well, but it just left me cold and I found it quite boring and moralistic (not the right word, but neither is preachy).

    Shame as I loved the first one. This was just dull aside from the Princesses. Best bit of the whole lot was in the bonus materials and was short "cat animations". They made me laugh.

    I can't believe I've read some positive comments about Rocknrolla.
    It genuinely might be the worst film I've ever seen.

    Brightburn

    Really enjoyed this one despite the mixed reviews.
    Itís just a dark dark film.
    By the end of the film, even though heís destroyed everyone close to him, I still felt really bad for him. [\spoiler]

    Really hoping for a sequel, it has tonnes potential. What I would like to see is the origin story of his potential adversary who is fighting for good and the 3rd film clematises to a big showdown between the 2.

    Ritchie himself has put out two worse movies, Swept Away and Revolver.

    Although, tbh, I do have a soft spot for Guy Ritchie movies, so I thought Revolver was alright. Rocknrolla was decent enough, too, even if it was a greatest hits movie.

    Swept Away is a real piece of shit, though.

    @nickthegun
    Yeah, to be honest I'm not a fan in general. I liked Lock stock and Snatch when they came out but having seen them more recently..not so much.
    I liked his Sherlock films though.
    Also, having done a little research, I just realised that I actually was referring to Revolver as possibly the worst film ever made and not Rocknrolla, which I don't remember ever seeing

    Yep, seen Parasite. It's very good.

    And also the sort of thing that you should watch with as little information about it as possible.

    Parasite is fantastic. Probably my favourite film of last year. It goes to places you wouldn't expect.
    I'm amazed the Oscars would look at it though. I suppose the director is pretty well known and has previous nominations though
