    I've watched Lucy twice now and I still can't remember the last act. All I could say earlier when the OH was looking for something to watch and hovered over this was "don't bother, it's a bit shit... I think"

    Aliens

    More like FUCKING AWESOME!!! No Ian Holm but Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen and James Cameron back when everything he touched was gold.

    ... but it's a dry heat. Yeah!

    This is how action films are made/10

    Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

    7/10

    Still amazed this was greenlit by Netflix. Will Ferrel & Rachel Mc Adams are a ficional Icelandic eurovision hopefuls trying to make it.

    It's doesn't quite hit the mark at times, but it's a daft, fun film for the most part. The cast seem to be enjoying themselves, the songs are catchy and they do nail the feel of the actual show.

    Kids/other halves who enjoyed the likes of the greatest showman will likely love it.

    Its been mentioned a few times on here recently and its spurred me to finally watch the VVitch which has been on my to watch pile for what seems like an internity,.

    Enjoyed it. The film is slightly ruined by me wanting to shout FINCHY every time Ralph Ineson is on screen, but pleased he is given a lead role in a film. I don't know if the film needed the ending it had as I thought the family tearing it self apart as they try to abide by the word of the church was interesting enough, but it was still well executed and does give the film a satisfying ending. Its unsettling all the way through, and is as some nice performances (although it can get shouty at times) and its well shot and put together.

    4/5

    Freaks - good but I kind of felt like we were watching the bad guys which, if intentional, I suppose is to itís credit.

    Itís cheap (itís full of Ďoh, is that guyí actors from Canadian TV shows) but I could definitely see this being span off into a series.

    Freaks

    Well that was rather splendid - a lot better than I expected. The first part is excellent and had me guessing what was going on. I got it wrong - I thought the dad was a wrong un It steps down a little once the mystery is revealed, but still strong. The little girl was well played too, although to be fair the whole cast did a cracking job.

    Yeah, I think they definitely give it a bit of moral ambiguity.
    The last shot isn't even ambiguous at all, in fact.

    Caliber (Netflix)

    Nice little Scottish horror about a hunting trip gone wrong. Itís paint by numbers from the big book of Urbanoia cinema, but the landscape and eerie local pub for local people setting help things considerably. Turn it into a drinking game by sipping on whisky every time someone makes a terrible life decision.

    7/10

    Alien

    Part of my Ian Holm tribute; I tried playing Alien: Isolation at the same time but it was all quite confusing really.

    Anyhow, absolutely brilliant; this is still one of the best horror/thriller flicks ever.
    And it shows a surprising - especially considering the era - amount of Sigourney Weaver's buttcrack towards the end, something I hadn't noticed in my five million earlier screenings. Err, well, I digress. Pardon me.

    I just have to watch Aliens next. So that's exactly what I'll do.

    9/10
    We watched this last night for the first time in absolutely ages (like, 20 years). It's such a great film. It's still totally passable by today's standards in terms of the effects and the sets (the sets are incredible although my mate did comment "looks like Chockablock"

    Aliens is next up on our little film club list. Question is, original or special edition. Thinking probably the original.

    I'd probably go original Alien, Special Edition Aliens.

    I'm never sure whether I think the inclusion of the smart guns adds to the film or not. You get a sense of how overwhelmed they are but does it take tension away perhaps. I mean, it's an awesome and visceral scene when the guns are ripping through xenomorphs but does it detract from the film a bit. Dunno.

    Its not just the smart guns, tho. Theres an extra 10 odd minutes of story that fill in a few gaps in the plot (notably, the company ordering newts family to explore the crashed ship).

    I'm still undecided whether I like the bit on the colony at the start. Kind of robbed the feeling of them flying into the unknown a bit.

    Yeah, both have merit. Ive seen the DC more times than the original, so thats *the* version for me. At this point I think it would seem weird watching the OG.

    I can't remember what one is on the BR boxset I have. Both probably, but can't remember which version I last watched.

    Yep I remembered that bit with Newt too. I agree on the "flying into the unknown" thing.

    One of my monster movie club buddies has never seen it so I think we'll go OG.

    Species: The Awakening

    Not sure why we ended up watching this

    It was crap. maybe that's not surprising. But sometimes you can watch a bad movie and revel in its failings, this was just bad.

    Characters have no personality, bad action scenes, crap effects, some awkward sex scenes, subplots that are brought up then instantly forgotten about. The alien-hybrid women are as expected attractive, but are terribly written. And it's so slow paced, the least a bad film can do is just rattle through some schlocky sex and violence, but it couldn't even get that right.

    Sometimes though it's useful to be reminded just how bad films can be. It's not easy to make a film, and this is what happens when too much falls short.

    2/10 (still better than Transformers 2, though)

    I definitely prefer the original Aliens cut. The DC robs it of at least 37% of tension.

    Edit: Plus, there's the whole bit with Ripley's daughter, where we find out she was a boring housewife when we now know she was a badass and would have definitely not turned out like that.

    Yeah I have to go with original Aliens. The director's cut does add some interesting stuff but, for me, it just doesn't work. You don't necessarily need to know more about Ripley's daughter to know that she'd be gutted about it.

    By accident, I watched all the Lethal Weapon movies this last week. Every time I was flicking about, one was on.

    Overall thoughts are: Mel Gibson really aged between all the installments, especially in the two years between the first and second, I never realised Eric Clapton was involved in the soundtrack for all four movies and Richard Donner has a CV that would take the pepsi challenge with most directors.

    Anyway...

    Lethal Weapon: The one thats rarely ever on and the one Ive seen the least. Its right up there with the best of the 80s action movies, great tone, great direction, love it. And Gary Busey is a great bad guy.

    9/10

    Lethal Weapon 2: The one where the formula kicked in. Its far lighter in tone than the first one but still has a bit of an edge. You can tell they were going to kill off Riggs at the end but bottled it.

    8/10

    Lethal Weapon 3: After they gimped his script, Shane Black quit and they made this boring effort. It skates by on the chemistry everyone has but I saw it less than a week ago and I cant really remember what its about.

    5/10

    Lethal Weapon 4: The one where everyone stopped giving a fuck. Everything about the series has worn out its welcome and is now just annoying, its tedious, racist and stupid.

    4/10
