Sonic the Hedgehog 2

 

I hate rating these kind of movies. On one hand they are terrible and it feels wrong to make a story around a game that had none, on the other hand I'm glad it's a thing because it awakes so many good memories of me being a kid taking turns playing the game with my best friends back in the day. 


What I can say, though, is that I wasn't bored while watching this and a lot of the effects were really well done. Ultimately, I found it to be the very definition of average. 

 

2.5/5 rings

The Bad Guys 

Dreamworks animation's latest and they've become more creative in their approach. The influence from Sony animation is there, with lots of 2d post effects that look great.

It's a kid friendly version of Oceans 11 and they've done a pretty good job. It starts well, sags a lot in the middle and then ends reasonably well. So not great, but it's watchable enough. 

 

3/5

 

E.T.

First time watching for the kids (10 and 7). They enjoyed it but perhaps not as much as I did around that age. For me it's still an all timer and other than effects it hasn't aged at all. 

5/5

 

Back to the Future trilogy

Again first time with the kids, it's probably my favourite series of films so we'd be in disowning territory if they didn't like it. 10 year old was so utterly gripped by the first film that he couldn't contain his excitement. I had forgotten just how tense the finale of 1 is. 

The second and third films were less popular, but still well liked. The additional layers in the second film were too much for them to follow (their minds were suitably blown) but the third is just a nice fun watch. 

As a trilogy is holds up so well, for me it's just about perfect. 

5/5

 

James Bond No Time to Die

I'm not a massive fan of Bond from any era and this one didn't land for me either. I had some great moments of action, sure, but I found it over long and plodding. 

2/5

 

Jungle Cruise

Was keen to give this one a go, the Rock is quite entertaining and the premise looked fun. Unfortunately they really managed to suck any fun out of it by dragging the paper thin plot over a stupidly long run time, and cram the film full of 'mild peril' in pretty much every minute of the film. Is long and boring it took us three nights to get through it. 

1/5

I watched this again on Sunday, had to drink it all in to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Superb film.

 

Oh, sounds great. Never heard about it. Will record it now.

Deep Cover 4/5 - This was my Friday night film. Lawrence Fishburne plays an LA cop who goes undercover to bust a drug dealing crime ring. Jeff Goldblum co-stars and it has a Dr Dre/Snoop theme tune, their first released track I think. It verges on blaxploitation but never to the point where it's offensive more like a loving pastiche, it's a lot of fun, a classic of the period.

No time to die

 

2/5 as the action sequences were good but the rest was woeful. So overlong it was dull - there is a decent 1hr45 minute film in there somewhere. And it is fitting that after years of getting bond completely wrong in the Daniel craig years they get his exit wrong as well!!!

 

craig bonds

 

casino royale 2/5

all the rest 1/5

oh apart from quantum of solace which is 0/5

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad

 

Excellent swashbuckling fun with Harryhausen providing spellbinding effects. The great cast and a cracking script only add to the fun. A rewatch will be in order to see if this is a classic or “merely “ very good. 
 

4/5

 

The Good Son


Another film in my forgotten 90s season. This was banned in the uk for a bit due to the Jamie Bulger murder. I found it to be hugely enjoyable trash with Wood and Culkin both on top form. It’s nice and short and the ending is genuinely thrilling. This is also Culkin’s final hit as everything after this failed to make its budget back.

 

3/5

 

The Phantom 

 

A great and overlooked superhero flick with Mr Zane relishing his role. Treat Williams makes for a fun villain and Zeta Jones and Remar also have great fun chewing up the scenery. Very pulpy and all the better for it. 
 

4/5

 

Looney Tunes Back in Action 

 

I’m getting a bit worried that I’ve seen 2 Dante films that I have been rather bored by. This just fails to engage despite a great cast and Dante “getting” the cartoon characters. The plot doesn’t work at all and much of the action falls flat. 
 

A disappointment. 2/5

Loads of them

 

Given the choice I’d watch almost any other bond film above the Daniel Craig ones.

 

I realise I’m old fashioned but the modern bonds are just miserable and dour

Everything Everywhere All At Once

 

It was absolutely brilliant.  The most inventive movie I have ever seen.  But even though it is a very smart and creative movie, it is filled with heart and emotion too.  I loved it.

Casino Royale was genuinely good, probably would have been better with Brosnan as Craig is woeful as Bond.

 

Last film I watched

 

What Dreams May Come.

 

Slated when it came out but it’s a beautiful film. Robin Williams best.

Four Falls of Buffalo - 3/5 (Disney+)

 

If you’ve got even a passing interest in American Football or even sports this should be a must-see documentary from the often brilliant ESPN 30 for 30 brand.


The Buffalo Bills reached four straight Super Bowls in the early nineties, and this delves behind-the-scenes with extensive interviews with the key figures in that run and how a fairytale became something more of a punchline, before being much more wholesome.

 

A great example of a sports team giving its community something to cherish, even if the glory they achieved isn’t immediately obvious.

The Truffle Hunters - 5/5 (BBC iPlayer)

 

This Storyville documentary is indescribably good. It’s about truffle hunters and their dogs in Italy, and every shot is like a painting come to life. A fascinating cast of characters, both human and animal, make this an unmissable dig into a very particular style of rural life.

Incredible film, your description is spot on, thanks for the recommendation!

The Lost City - 2/5.

 

Brad Pitt's appearance was good. But I found it utterly boring and the comedy was tiresome. Ended up playing Outrun 2 on my phone for a third of the film as my other half lusted over Channing Tatum's (body double?) bare bum.

 

It was a nice bum though.

Sonic the Hedgehog

 

This film as acutely aware of how ridiculous it all is, and just runs with it without any semblance of taking itself seriously. This had me in stitches during the military room scene - shades of Airplane! Marsden clearly struggled at times with the type of acting required opposite a character to be added in post, but put enough heart in; Jim Carrey was also surprisingly good! 

 

3/5

It’s really something isn’t it? Glad you enjoyed it.

 

I can’t stop myself screeching ‘CARLO!’ though.

Rushmore.

 

Never seen it before and just watched it on Disney Plus. What a wonderful film, absolutely loved it. Bill Murray was superb.

I’ve watched this film dozens of times but not in he last few years. I always think of it as Wes Anderson’s best, need to check it out again soon.

The Power of the Dog (2021)

The direction, cinematography, score and performances in this were all great, however the story and characters I cared very little for and the character development felt very rushed on all fronts.

3/5

 

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (2022)

Remember when Dumbledore fought his equal in Voldermort at the Ministry and it was amazing, imaginative and looked great. Well how about we do that again, but instead take out all the good stuff and just have them fire laser bolts back and forth.

 

This film is the very definition of meh, it's just so flat. I don't really know what else to write about because apart from completely fucking with book lore, there's just nothing much else to say. We're two films into the whole Dumbledore/Grindelwald story now and nothing seems to have happened or moved forward.

 

I just don't know who this series is for exactly. It caters for neither the HP book or films lovers.

3/5

 

Firestarter (2022)

Boring, unimaginative remake of the Steven King novel. Just really really dull. Don't bother watching it, you'll get nothing from it.

1/5
