I'm going to do the last three because I'm greedy and they were all fantastic. 

 

Ex Machina 

Looks absolutely stunning with a fantastic dread-building atmosphere. Thought the creator guy was a little too much of twiddling moustache villian but throughly enjoyed being swept along with the various levels of doubt that were introduced to the main character and loved the ending. 5/5

 

District 9

Descends a little into too much of a straight-up generic action flick towards the end, but despite this I found this to be both hilarious and horrifying in equal measure. I watched on a crowded train and burst out laughing and felt like I was going to be sick within the space of five minutes. Excellent. 5/5

 

Silence of the Lambs

Couple of absolutely phenomenal performances and it doesn't feel like its aged one bit. Bit weird we decided to watch this because we're watching the thematically identical Mindhunter series 2 at the moment, but I didn't find my mind wandering once and this is quite something for me. 5/5

Oh but the style was glorious. Reminded me a lot of golden age Argento, I absolutely love it. 

 

The style is why it got 2/5 otherwise it would be getting hit with a hard 1. Outside of it looking great, it was a load of old shite.

Flushed away 3/5

plenty of sight gags, parody, and humour in Aardmans cgi movie. Best of all, the cgi is just a story telling tool.

 

The Empire Strikes back 5/5

i have nothing to add, it’s empire...

 

Return Of The Jedi 5/5

Ain’t even finished yet.

Beauty and the beast (1991j

 

If someone asks me what my favourite movie of all time is I usually say “Blade Runner”, “The Godfather” or, if they are a bit geeky like me “The Empire Strikes Back”.

 

But that’s all lies. THIS is my favourite movie of all time. Peerless in every aspect, I wouldn’t change a thing (well, maybe chips voice is a bit grating at times). I only have to hear the first few bars of the title song and I well up EVERY TIME.

 

5/5

Capsized: Blood in the Water

 

This was part of Discovery's Shark Week and is based on a true story.  Lots of screaming and looking upset - but completely over-acted and dull because it's been done hundreds of times before, and far more effectively than this.  Dull.

 

1.5/5

The Dark Knight Rises 3/5

 

I turned this off after fifteen minutes years ago and I have no idea why, it was very acceptable. 

 

Solomon Kane 2/5

 

Like a shitty but enjoyable enough Willow. Would have gave it a three but for the fact that it's a fantasy film set in England with Christians and real witches and other demon's and whatnot. Something about that just struck me as unseemly. I'm not even sure why exactly, a similar vampire films wouldn't annoy me at all, or it was like some hammer horror shit it wouldn't annoy me nearly as much.

Kung Pow.

 

Watched because it was on the telly when I got home from a night out.  It appears to be a 'Comedy' kung fu movie and most of the 'Jokes' are derivatives of bad dubbing, silly accents or a combination of the two.

 

1 out of 5, and that single mark was earned very early on in the film when an obviously plastic baby escapes from a blazing inferno by rolling down a stony hill, 

 

 

Would not recommend.

Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark

 

Raiders of the Lost Ark / Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark

 

An oldie but a goodie. Been at least 10 years or more since i last watched, it still holds up even if it has it's cheesy moments. I did find myself pointing out quite a lot of absurdities in the film though. Looking forward to temple of doom. 4.5/5

I was THIS close to saying something. I even checked the IMDB to see when "Indiana Jones and the" was appended to the title of the film, the 1999 video release, etc etc... nd that's only cos I was already rabbit holing Ronald Lacey. In an earlier thread some one expressed surprise that gestapo officer todt, and harris in porridge, are the same actor.

 

Well, he's ALSO the guy who killed Hopkirk, in Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased).

Split (2016) - 3.5/5

 

Been intending to watch this for a while, but didn't get round to seeing it until its Freeview TV premiere a few days ago. I think my enjoyment was slightly undermined by knowing in advance The Big Twist Ending (by far the clunkiest line of dialogue in the movie) and the basic premise of Shyamalan's follow-up movie. James McAvoy's multiple-personality performance was still fun, though: probably the main reason to watch the movie.

 

 

 

Chef (2014) - 3.5/5

 

Jon Favreau ropes in a couple of his Iron Man buddies* for minor roles in this comedy about a father wrestling with art-versus-commerce and work-versus-family. Shamelessly feel-good: it's not a spoiler to say it's got a happy ending (although the most telegraphed element -

Spoiler

the food critic sampling his new menu and being won over

- didn't happen in quite the way I expected).

 

But as Favreau says in the commentary, people are bound to criticise it for the neatness of its ending, but he does not care! And why should he? If he wants to make wish fulfilment food porn, he can! (And, apart from an intentionally-offputting opening scene involving cutting up a pig, that food photography is pretty sumptuous.) And if he wants to cast Sofia Vergara and Scarlett Johansson as his character's exes, then dammit, he'll do that too!

 

* Haha, I just realised what I'd written: "Buddy". Pun not intended!

Unbroken: Path to Redemption

 

I thought the first film about former Olympic athlete Louis Zamperini's ordeal as a Japanese POW was decent enough, and was surprised to see there was a sequel.  Well, it's a sequel in name only because there's a different lead actor, a different director and it's a totally different kind of film.

 

It's also the most pointless sequel I have ever seen.  There was no need to make this film, and unfortunately there's nothing whatsoever to recommend about it.

 

2/5

Surrounded

 

Saw this on Netflix.  There was a picture of a fierce looking shark on the thumbnail, so that was me sold.  

 

This is APPALLING.  :lol: But it's so catastrophically bad, it's very hard to turn it off.  Seriously hilarious, but unintentionally so.  The acting is dreadful, the CGI makes it look like a bad GCSE project, the plot... well, that must have got lost somewhere.  A few quite golden lines ("We had a raft.... but the sharks ate it...")

 

It has big sharks which growl and eat anything and everything, and are cunning etc etc.  That's the best thing I can say about it.
