    Miss Sloan 8/10 Jessica Chastain kicks ass
    The Purge: Anarchy 5/10 Everyone but the main char is a whiny piece of stupidity that I wished died. Also forced diversity.

    Christine 7/10 Classic 1983 entertainment

    @JYM60 I really liked Hereditary (though it had its flaws). But I'm with you on Midsommar - it's basically The Wicker Man meets Children of the Corn, without the style or atmosphere of the former and the merciful brevity of the latter.

    Parasite - 8/10

    First half... Loved it. Second half... Descended into a farce.

    I almost want to give the film a higher score based on the first half alone. It was lean, wasted no time setting events up, the characters were immediately likeable. Then, when I realised what the family's plan was, it made me quite giddy to see how it'd play out. Brilliant stuff.

    Then I felt the film went one step too far. And then another. And another. It was as if someone stepped in with no confidence in or respect for the recipe of the film, and drenched it in tomato ketchup.

    However, this never stopped it from being entertaining, which is surely every film's ultimate goal, so it probably deserves the praise it's received of late, and I would recommend.
    Isn't that the whole point? The farce was created

    He couldn’t have inferred it - he might have implied it. It sounds like you inferred it though.

    Watched Snowpiercer last night after seeing Parasite on Monday. I liked it by the end, but I found the tonal jumps pretty jarring. Found the same with Parasite to a lesser extent. I did really enjoy it, but I was left wrongfooted at times (like I [PARASITE SPOILER]couldn't understand why poor dad suddenly decided to murder rich dad, because for me poor dad was still this jovial, clownlike kind of guy). That might be on me though, maybe I'm just not sophisticated enough.

    Wasn't it because of the way rich dad cringed (presumably at the smell) when retrieving...something..I can't quite remember. Was it car keys? That and the fact that his daughter just got stabbed which would push anyone to the edge.

    The tonal shifts are just part of the director's style. Maybe they don't work for some people, but they're very much intentional.

    Oh absolutely. I'm just finding myself a little wrongfooted by them at times, but I guess it's something you get used to. Is Okja worth watching?

    Yeah it's that and a thousand other little slights isn't it. I get it, but at the time I felt it came completely out of the blue.

    Yeah, all of his stuff is worth watching. I really liked Mother.

    I've struggled a bit with his previous films because there are bits which I think are supposed to be funny but come across as a bit mean because I feel sorry for the characters. Well, that was The Host. I remember just being generally depressed by Okja and while I like Snowpiercer, I did have a few logical issues with it.

    I think Parasite is the first one I've liked without reservation.

    Memories of Murder is up there with Parasite as his best imo - definitely worth a watch.

    Yep, Memories of Murder is great, I think (and it's been endlessly compared to it) it must have have influenced Fincher when he made Zodiac.

    I loved Snowpiercer as well.

    Parasite was pretty good, I didn't think the ending was that out of place given Joon-Ho's form in previous films.

    RoboCop (original)

    Great film, funny, violent, great performance from Weller.

    It's the little details that make it. Favourite moment is the black OCP guy looking very smug when Dick is fired and killed, the cheesy thumbs up and grin he gives. Or when somebody cries "get a paramedic" after the board member is shot up by ED 209

    I watched RoboCop 3 recently. Absolutely bloody awful. The first is probably in my top 10. It's so ridiculous but somehow works.

    I caught 3 on Netflix recently. I'm struggling to remember much about it, other than some dude trying to rob a diner while all the cops are there.

    ETA, ah, more coming back to me. Some hacker kid reprogramming the ED209.?

    This is directly after seeing his corrupt vice-president / competitor shot out of a window. Perfect.

    Joker 8/10

    Wackeen is a great actor, he gets the broken man losing his shit down perfectly.

    Good origin story and I know it's meant to be a standalone but it would be great if they introduced more villains and Batman in the same tone.

    Riddler in a seven style thriller with Batman hunting him down would be great.

    I think that the trailer for Hereditary ruined it for me. Not because it showed too much of the movie, but because it showed a different movie.

    It really MGS2'd me.

    That's brilliant - The Predator Musical is probably still my favourite though :-)

    Double header at the cinema tonight...

    Harley Quinn - 7/10

    Fun, messy but fun. The timeline shifting just flat out doesn't work as it removes context from pretty much every scene, some flashbacks are so long I forgot they were flashbacks! But the fight choreography alone is worth the price of admission, the police station scene is exceptional and I don't think any superhero movie has bettered it in that respect. I hate that it's yet another film that is structured to create a spin-off / sequel (Birds of Prey) that will probably never get made given the box office for this. The Huntress deserves her own movie for a start, criminally underused yet utterly brilliant.

    The Lighthouse - 9/10

    I loved it and I'll never watch it again. Beautifully shot and I'm so pleased I saw it on a big screen, would be a very tough watch in less than optimal conditions. Great performances and a brutal, claustrophobic descent into madness which i was actually desperately hoping would end!

    Mystify: Michael Hutchence 8/10

    I can't remember the last time a movie left me so down. Rediscovering peak INXS you almost forget the bad luck and bad decisions that lie ahead, culminating with the sadness of a man trying to convince the mid nineties he was more than just tabloid fodder. Gripping and heartbreaking.

    I thought Tilda Swinton was good in this , as were all of the cast , except for maybe Ewen Bremner who looked like Spud had survived the apocalypse , hmm maybe he did ?
