It's on Netflix UK! But buried in the recently added. Watched it last night and it was wonderful.

Awesome, I'll be watching this later then. 

Watched "what we do in the shadows" yesterday and thought it was great.

Saw this the other day and thought it was great! My biggest lol was 

Spoiler

Shit just got real!

 

It came out of nowhere for me, because I'd never heard of the director before. I'll be checking his other films for sure.

What We Do in the Shadows is brilliant. He's also doing Thor III, so I have some hope that it'll not be another dull identikit sequel.

What a wonderful film, thanks to this thread for bringing it to my attention. 

 

Now I'm just gonna find the door with all the confectionary behind it, sure it was around here somewhere...

This is a Wind approved film. 

 

We watched it last night.  It's good.  I love that sort of "good kid on an adventure" vibe - see also Son of Rambow and Turbo Kid. All very different but equally great.

Another thumbs up for this.  Totally off my radar.  Shades of Little Miss Sunshine in it.  Good stuff.

Yeah, it's a good film but not really what I'd call great. Sags a little in the second half as the comedic moments grew sparser. It's undoubtedly likeable but that's as far as I'd go.

Watched this yesterday - fantastic film. Add a talking dog, balloons and you've got a live action version of Up!!

"I had a relaxing sausage"

 

Yes, I watched this after coming home from La La Land. This is is my preferred film out of the two.

It was like being a Wes Anderson film, without Wes Anderson.  Superb acting in it, and my favourite bit was either the Birthday song or Man Bush.... Bushman!

I thought this was incredible. So charming, beautifully shot, and the funniest film I've seen for a while. And that soundtrack! Leonard Cohen's 'The Partisan' made me weak at the knees. Perfect.

Even I really liked this film.

 

No one can actively dislike this film !

 

It's goofy but not twee or try-hard quirky in ways that might antagonise people, nor features any actors that people hate. I can't think of anything that might make it a target for a backlash, it seems all round hate-proof. 

 

Spoiler

The Sarah Connor joke is amazing. 

 

..Hang on, I just checked rotten tomatoes. I won't repeat what Richard Brody of The New Yorker said, only that...oh no I found another one...it hurts, it hurts, no more...*clicks next page*, they're spreading ! ...people who write for the telegraph aren't human anyway. I always find the use of 'You' in film reviews curious, it should not just always assume, should be 'I wished I could have been on my way a whole hour before it limped to a close'. Like half an hour in...

 

This film could warm any cold heart. Mostly.

What a brilliant movie! So subtle in how it builds the relationships throughout, incredible setting and a beautiful soundtrack.

 

The chase toward the end and the music that accompanied it was just a perfect way to bring things to an end.

 

Watching that scene took me back to my childhood and the first time I watched Short Circuit 2. Johnny 5 close to death, racing along the pier, I need a hero blaring! Its been a long time since a film has made me feel like I did as a kid watching movies but this achieved that comfortably. Amazing!

Finally got around to watching this the other night. Really enjoyed it and thought it was funny and moving. Plus it had a great soundtrack. Really enjoyed What We Do In the Shadows and Eagle Vs Shark too so will need to give Boy a watch soon as well.

 

One bit did get me a bit teary eyed:

 

Spoiler

When the boar got the dog and it had to be killed. Not great seeing that 2 days after my dog had just died :(

It's a bloody hard enough scene to get through when you ain't grieving, so fair play.

Saw this the other day. It's been on my Netflix list for a few weeks, and I could somehow never get round to hitting play, thinking, "Well, it's supposed to be good, but I dunno, it can't be that good!"

 

I was wrong. It's brilliant.

 

Spoiler

That scene with Sam Neil wailing over the body of his dead wife near the washing line got me a bit choked up. Really took me by surprise how hard that hit me.
