    Live and Let Die is the only Bond film that has anything supernatural going on in it (Solitaire totally has psychic powa until she gets Rogered some Moore and Baron Samedi is the MAN who CANNOT DIE!) so I'd hesitate to call it one of the more realistic Bonds.

    Bond sports a Hamilton Pulsar in this, which is EASILY the best Bond watch.
    Yeah, you're obviously right. I was just thinking of world domination plans.

    Come to think of it, having a new Bond film with this kind of angle would be pretty damn good.

    Bond needs to be unrealistic though, the newer ones all suffer from it because the baddies have to be dialled up to fucking ridiculous to make you even slightly root for Bond because he's such an irredeemable cunt without any of the whimsy.

    Also the Omega Seamaster 300 in the shitty Brosnan films is the best Bond watch because I've got one

    I've got one too. Latest one from Q branch!

    No Time To Die would have been out this Thursday. Oh well.

    James Bond stars in Ian Fleming's... The Man with the Wizard's Sleeve.

    Cmdr Bond, fresh back from his most recent drinking binge/facelift, discovers he has been cursed by a nebulous Russian Cossack who is only known as THE WIZARD'S SLEEVE. THE SLEEVE has a murky past that intertwines with Bond, possibly from that time he got taken in as an orphan by yet another friendly family with a murderous jealous child, after the first time round went tits up.

    This time THE SLEEVE (who cries tears of magical Russian glitter when thinking about something evil, which is a dead giveaway. Also, he wears traditional Cossack dress at all times) plans to dominate the world by manipulating MYSTIC MEG into convincing old people to spend FIVE POUNDS A TIME ringing up a horoscope line.

    Bond checks in with OFCOM. Their regulatory powers not being eldritch, Bond then has to descend into the shadowy international cabal of MONETISED TELEPHONIC SPIRITUALISM in order to expose THE WIZARD'S SLEEVE.

    I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore - Netflix

    80/100

    Bit of a unexpected gem, this one. It looked like it would be something of a leftfield indie goof movie. Turned out to have quite some black humour with a couple of wtf moments.

    Like an early lo-fi Coen-brothers film - oddball characters getting deeper into situations than they expected.

    Well worth a watch.

    Think it's Macon Blair's directorial debut and he's clearly learned off the bloke he did Blue Ruin and Green Room with. It's not up to their quality but it's more light hearted. Elijah wood trying to pull a throwing star out of a wall is great.

    @RGeefe Most definitely lighter than Green Room which was pretty nasty as I recall. More comic moments bring some levity - think a rewatch of GR would be too dark for me right now.

    Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle.

    A solid and fun romp which deserves a 70/100.

    I liked the cast (both “parts”) and the lack of a proper story doesn’t matter in the least.

    It would have been too “old” for our eight year old, and has been well rated as a “12” certificate.

    It was alright generally. The hardcore sex scene between Jack Black and Kevin hart just kinda comes out of nowhere though.

    Yeah, I could have lived without the rhino snuff bit too, but it would have left a massive hole in the plot.

    Kingsman: Secret Service

    We’d heard good things about this movie and had seen the trailers when it first came out, but hadn’t really given it a thought since.

    It deserves at least an 80/100 score. It’s excellent.

    There’s more technology in it than we had anticipated, and the fight scenes are magnificent, although totally unbelievable. The main villain casting is curious and slightly unsettling at first but beds in rather nicely.

    There’s enough story to keep you interested until the end, an absolutely marvellous cast with quite a few “wait, they’re in this?!” moments and the line spoken by the princess near to the end raised a knowing cheer in the room.

    Adults only!

    Good stuff.

    Don't bother with the sequel. Bigger doesn't equal better in this case.

    Thanks, we’ll bear that in mind. We knew there was one, but we’ll send it to the bottom of the pile for now. :)

    Really? I can't think of much in it that's that scary, my 6 year old has seen it, he might have even seen it in the cinema so he would have been 4, its 12A BTW. He watched Jaws the other day, loved it, cheesy romp that it is.

    @freddymercurystwin Not scary as such, I never said so.

    It depends upon how liberal you are with the little ‘uns hearing the odd swear and slightly sexual biological reference.

    A couple of the more intense action scenes would have been a bit much for our eight year old girl.

    :)

    Fair enough, I guess my 6 year old lad is a ballsy and balshy little tearaway!

    Hmm perhaps I should lay him off the scary action films. :)

    Or hasn't quite learned to process things in the same way yet as slightly older kids. I certainly found that - what didn't bother my 10 year old at age 6 suddenly seemed to affect him at age 8. They just let it wash over them when slightly younger but as soon as they can put it together....

    Knives Out - 8/10

    Right from the opening bar of music you know you’re in for a treat. Great fun with some truly lol moments. Great cast all having the time of their lives. Trying to determine if Daniel Craig face looking like he had died 15 hours ago throughout the whole film is of significance or if he just let himself go after Bond

    Venom - 4/10

    Absolute shite. Sony really have no idea what to do with their Spider-man license. Literally 5 mins in I knew it was awful. It’s a weird bastardization of the character that doesn’t work standalone with Spidey.
    I’ve seen good films by the director, and Hardy and Williams are both decent actors, but nothing about this film worked, including their participation.

    I think the only superhero film I’ve seen worse is Suicide Squad.

    IT Chapter I

    Not bad. I liked the visual trickery and set pieces for the most part. The projector bit was especially good.

    I didn't really like any of the kids though. Stranger Things boy was especially annoying and can't really pull off the whole Jay from the Inbetweeners bantz. Neurotic germophobe kid was a dick too and I found the constant F-bombs unnerving.

    Entertaining otherwise, if too long.

    7 out of 10

    I've seen Justice League. I've also seen Spider-Man 3.
