    @RGeefe I think there is absolutely an element of sexism in some of the criticisms laid down against female-led movies.

    I agree that it's not only about that, and that it shouldn't be used to dismiss legitimate criticism about genuinely shitty movies. But if you don't think that sexist reactions happen at all (or that the severity of it is often worse than when, say, Ryan Reynolds makes a shitty movie), then you're not paying enough attention.

    (not saying that you specifically are doing this, "you" just means people in general)

    Star Wars - Rise of Skywalker - 3/10

    The Stars on 45 of SW.

    It's bot awful,but definitely not aimed at me.

    If you just need to check out, look at rapid fire editing of beautiful cgi work, with some lovely music for three hours, then yeah, it's ok.

    The quiet bits and the respect paid to Carrie Fisher were genuinely good moments, not enough of them for me though.

    I'd like to see a lower budget SW horror flick. Could be good in the right hands.

    That is all.

    What I don't get is why the answer to the criticism that there are too many movies with men in leading roles, which is a fair criticism, is apparently to... make movies with all-women casts.

    Is it really so hard to make movies where men and women share the spotlight equally? No, it's either a testosterone party or a girl power scenario.

    I honestly don't mind all female casts. What I object to are terrible movies that are somehow hoping their mostly-female cast will carry it.

    I'll happily watch the previous Charlies Angels movies if they appear on the TV - they are throwaway comedy fluff pieces with a bit of action thrown in and don't pretend to be anything else, they're an enjoyable 90 minute romp. The latest one has had any humour and charm deliberately hammered out of it deliberately and what's left is a poor story shouting "LOOK HOW EDGY I AM!!!" repeatedly at you until the end credits where, inexplicably, they decided to leave in some humour.

    I don't think the all female ghostbusters was too bad, if it were released with another name and not attached to the franchise I think people would have been more sympathetic - messing with nostalgia is a minefield which is just best avoided imo.

    Pretty much my opinion, frenetic editing did for me. A mess

    Mulholland Drive

    I must've watched this film 20+ times and I never get bored of it or fail to pick something new up. Save for Twin Peaks this is Lynch at his absolute best (yep, better than Blue Velvet).

    An absolute fucking masterwork.

    10/10

    I love that film and Lynch in general but I felt MD is a bit too straightforward for a Lynch film. I prefer his somewhat more crazy bonkers stuff like Lost Highway.

    Though, saying that, Inland Empire is still a tad too bonkers for my tastes.

    Anyway, still a fantastic flick either way.

    Hah - fair point!

    If you've seen Twin Peaks: The Return you definitely got your fill of bonkers Lynch :)

    Inland Empire is the only work by Lynch I've not seen purely on the basis that I can't see him ever doing another film and I can't bring myself to watch his 'last'.

    Amadeus

    Brilliant - especially F Murray Abraham - but Christ itís long. But I suppose a film about opera should be.

    Point deducted for the disappointing omission of Falco in the soundtrack.

    8/10

    Midsommer

    It starts with screaming and moaning, then evolves into crass Americans disrespecting local custom. It does get a bit weird, but not as strange as I'd heard, most of it was pretty obvious and the big reveals overly telegraphed. Still it managed some decent atmosphere, but still ended a wwishy washy Wickerman. It dragged on a bit, but in the end was worth a watch, if a little disappointing.

    6/10

    Rise of Skywalker - 7/10

    About as good an ending as I could have hoped for, first hour is messy as hell though, but I did love all the new vehicles and races

    @RawShark The ending of Amadeus, with the Patron Saint of Mediocrities speech, whilst Mozart's piano concerto tinkles away, is one of my favourite endings of anything.

    F. Murray Abraham is absolutely perfect. He never came close to equalling this performance.

    3 From Hell

    Well that was shit. Murder porn with no soul or style, just soft focus slow motion for unimaginative deaths. The lack of Captain Spalding sucked the humour present from the earlier films. It did pick up a bit towards the end, but with no decent conclusion.

    2/10

    The director's cut doesn't really add anything to it, tbf, apart from some bewbs. You may as well watch the theatrical cut.

    It really is majestic. And a complete lie, historically, but then most composer biopics are.

    You should try Immortal Beloved next if you liked Amadeus. It's not half as good, but it has its moments, particularly Gary Oldman's performance.

    Sonic the movie.

    I've always loved sonic but the past decade has been shite for the hedgehog. BUT I do have to admit they done a brilliant job on this movie. I really wasn't expecting much but it was a great family movie and done justice to the sonic we knew and loved in the mega drive days. Jim Carrey was also brilliant. Great ending and looking forward to the sequel.

    8/10 for a movie
    9/10 for a game to movie adaptation.

    I don't think Sonic has had one bad review on here, that is pretty unusual - no matter what the film is there is always some outlier with a contrary view

    Wild Wild West
    Some throwaway Netflix fare. I thought it was going to be bad. I clearly didn't think hard enough as it was even worse. Why are there even people out there who bother making this kind of shite?
    Selma Hayek was as hot as ever though.

    Score isn't relevant for this thing, just... don't.

    Kevin Smith tells the story about how he was working on Superman and the producer really wanted a giant spider in it.

    Same producer ended up on Wicky Wah Wah...

    If I was a WB studio exec at the time and Barry Sonnenfeld said "I'm going to remake Men in Black, which made wheelbarrows of cash, as a steampunk western with Will Smith" my eyeballs would have rolled up KER-CHING Tex Avery-style dollar signs.

    What's the more intriguing story, and obvs only in Hollyweird, is how hairdresser Jon Peters managed to become a hugely successful producer when he hasn't got a fucking clue about anything, but then as William Goldman said, no-one fucking knows anything.
