    Phantom Menace is the worst of all the films.

    Jar Jar, the Gungans, the trade federation, Watto, Pod racing and Qui-Gon who abandons Darth's mum to a life of slavery.

    It's racist AF and all round shit. Ray Park is the only good thing.

    Oh and fucking midichlorians.

    Yeah, the Phantom Menace is utter horsehit. It's so unbelievably dull

    Attack of the Clones is barely better and has the worst script of the lot.

    RotS is still crap but at least looks a bit like a Star Wars film at times.

    Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa

    Finally got round to watching this, and it was... alright. Had some amusing moments and the humour was broad enough to appeal to more than just AP fans. Though tbh, the character doesn't really suit a feature length film.

    6/10

    Mindhorn

    Another film about a ridiculous British middle-aged man living off past glories and eventually getting in over his head. I preferred the slightly more absurd humour in this to AP.

    7/10

    Bad Words

    Jason Bateman plays a misanthropic 40-year old that uses a loophole to enter and win child spelling bee competitions because he simply does not give a fuck. There's obviously a bit more to the story than that, with the requisite touching moments, but it's also pretty funny simply because the main character is a dick and it's entertaining to see him trying to win at all costs and just generally being offensive.

    8/10

    All currently on Prime btw.

    I think Sith is my most loathed because it should have been the good one. It's absolutely fucking dreadful. They all are.

    The latest one was pretty awful but still nowhere near the shitness of the prequels. The other 2 of the newest ones were pretty good. I really liked Rogue One and Solo.

    It was a weird few weeks when it was released where people were actually trying to convince themselves of that. Its got like 80% on RT which is kind of mind blowing. It's just so stupid.

    But there wasn't much of it, though. I was ready surprised how little actual comedy there is. Yeah, there's some absurdist bits but it's just not a very funny movie. I wanted to like it a lot more than I did.

    Maybe that's on me, though. Or more likely the trailer.

    Palpatine is good in the prequels. It's seems Ian McDiarmid realised that dialogue that shit should be acted pantomime-style, hammed up to the max with lots of gurning.

    Yeah, it was definitely wryly amusing rather than laugh out loud funny. But the film had enough twists and turns to keep me entertained throughout. Plus I didn't realise just how great a comic actor Julian Barrett is (I only really remember him as being the guy with paint on his head on Nathan Barley).

    American Mary

    As someone who winces at the thought of scalpels, I’m not sure why I thought it was a good idea to watch this. Like a visit to Unnecessary Surgery Land at Itchy & Scratchy World.

    Add multiple points if you ever had a subscription to Bizarre magazine.

    5/10

    @RawShark I remember Bizarre!

    The only thing I ACTUALLY remember from it is a photo of a girl drinking a stream of wine from the bottle, European style, with the caption “This is better than anything in the Sex section”.

    And it was!

    T2 - 7/10

    Not the one with Arnie, obvs...
    It's OK. It does that annoying sequel thing of showing constant flashbacks, which in this case just serve to remind you that the original film had a point and this really has none.
    The score is pretty terrible too. I'm a massive fan of underworld, but after a while this was just "I wonder which part of born slippy they're going to slow down next"

    Can't believe someone said it was better than the original recently...

    The Shining (1980). Jack Nicholson carried the whole thing. Also liked the lingering scenery shots. 8/10.

    P.S. Why did Jack Torrence say "Here's Johnny!", if his name is Jack? Hmmm...

    @GNS1991 Jack Nicholson ad-libbed the line "Here's Johnny!" in imitation of announcer Ed McMahon's famous introduction of Johnny Carson on U.S. network NBC-TV's long-running late night television program The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Stanley Kubrick, who had been living in England since before Carson took over "The Tonight Show," had no clue what "Here's Johnny!" meant. Carson once used the clip of Nicholson as the introduction to one of his annual anniversary specials.

    And Jack is often another name for John, I think.

    Finally watched Doctor Sleep, after I couldn't be arsed to wait for the Director's Cut anymore. I was disappointed. Was a bit blah, both the story and the direction. There was little tension and it looked more made for TV. I did enjoy the last 30 mins though.

    6/10

    Shazam! 8/10

    I loved it, probably the best comic book movie in years. Very 80s feeling, all the effects are great and the set-pieces are very inventive without being like an insane computer game (Marvel). It's also genuinely funny.

    Phantom Menace? Phantom My Ass more like!

    I actually agree though. They both have many, many boring or cringe worthy scenes but PM at least has a decent baddie and final fight. I find there's absolutely nothing memorable about AotC (not in a positive way that is)
