What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

Recommended Posts

(47-48)

Defiance 9/10

Excellent but draining. A great “what would I have done” film. Tough people. (iplayer)

The Lair of the White Worm 6/10

Ridiculous/campy, but ultimately enjoyable Ken Russell folk horror. Do you want to see Malcolm Tucker wearing a sporran in a face off against the rancor handler armed with nothing but a set of bagpipes? Then this is the film for you. (Amazon Shudder)

Pacific Rim 2: Rim Harder 4/10

Probably the second best film in the Pacific Rim universe. It rattles along at such a frenetic pace that you don’t even notice that nothing makes any sense, Charlie Day gives it the full Charlie Kelly and John Boi-Jaeger continues to impress with his charisma and enthusiasm. The mini-Jaeger is also pretty cool! (cinema)

Pacific Rim is a strange one. I've been in a room with it on, my eyes were pointed at the film for the duration, I wasnt asleep or on drugs or anything but at no point could I describe myself as having watched it

Sums it up well, first film had Del Toros charm to it while this was just standard action sequel. Also felt like they were trying to rush through too many stories in the first half to get ready for the big fight scenes .

Annihilation - 6.5/10.

Not sure about this one, it had some great moments in it and visually was stunning but the story never really made much sense to me and also dragged in parts.

Veronica 6/10

Not bad. But not scary as I was expecting. Perhaps the usual media hype but I'd read this was so scary that folk couldn't get to the end of it. It had a couple of freaky moments but no jump scenes and no real horror for me. It doesn't come close to The Conjuring. Having said that, it wasn't a bad story and as it was based on true events it added to it somewhat. I absolutely loved the directing though. I enjoy films where the director is a wee bit quirky and in this there were several instances. It was the best thing about the film for me. It's not a classic but it's far from shite. Worth a watch.

Tomb Raider - 5.5/10 - Okay movie pretty basic plot but didn't think it dragged on. End of film boss fight pretty underwhelming.

 

Pacific Rim 2 -  3.0/10  - Load of crap seem to be turning it into some sort of tweeny version of transformers and completely unplausable how they can put stuff together so quickly 

Spoiler

They says the Kaiju goal has not been to attack  cities but they just happen to be on their path to get to that mountain in Japan. So why would they have gone anywhere near San Fransisco in the first movie unless their GPS was wonky.

Took my 5 year old daughter to see this today and actually quite enjoyed it. I laughed out loud to a couple of bits and she laughed quite a lot. She got bored a couple of times when the animals weren't on screen but overall she enjoyed it.

Me 6/10
Daughter 7/10

The Long Good Friday

I thought I'd celebrate Good Friday with this classic British gangster movie. It's dated and its production values are closer to a TV crime show from that era, like "The Sweeney", than a cinematic release, but it is still fucking brilliant. Bob Hoskins is very convincing as the old school cockney villain attempting to embrace the modern age while his empire is being attacked.

8/10

Ready Player One - 7/10

Enjoyable stuff from Spielberg. Will watch again just to catch the references that I missed first time around.

Saturday night-Unsane.
A bit of a ropey plot but it was only 90 odd minutes so not a chore to watch.
Sunday-Enter Player One.
Only went into this as it was starting after we'd been for something to eat.
I'm not sure whether you'd have to be into computer games but it was hard work for me.

Isle of Dogs 7.5/10

Not sure the story totally worked but there was so much to enjoy in this, more in the small detail than the overarching plot, that I didn’t really care. One of those films that I would prob want to see more than once because the ridiculous amount of stuff going on in it means I probably missed loads. (cinema)

Lovely long flights to and from austin.

outbound:-

Justice League 7/10 - I enjoyed it. Superman just coming back with little fan fare was a bit strange

Dunkirk 3/10 - Hated it. would have prfeed the boats getting together and heading over rather than focusing on one boat and jumping all over the place. Way to much of Branagh staring into space.

3 Billboards 10/10 - Excellent film. It just flew by. I can see why it was up there in the Oscars. can't believe it is a film 4 production.

Shape of water 9/10 - I really thought i would turn this off after 10 minutes but it got me hooked and i ended up loving it. Again i can see why it was favourite for an oscar.

inbound:-

Atomic Blond 7/10 - good film with some excellent Charlize Theron scenes.

Thor: Ragnarok 7/10 - The best Thor film for me. had a good laugh at it.

Darkest Hour 5/10 - it was watchable but i was a bit tired watching it. will probably give it a go again when it is on Sky.

Kingsman 2 5/10 - Not as good as the first one. First one was a surprise how much i enjoyed it, this one was watchable but was never going to be as good.

If you don't stop it.... you'll go blind.

Cheesy 70s comedy. A series of sketches rather than one storyline with plenty of gratuitous nudity and crude, juvenile humour. About as subtle as a boot in the steens but amusing in places. Any film starting Uschi Digatd gets a thumbs up from me.

5/10

Dave Made a Maze

A guy called Dave builds a maze from cardboard and gets lost in it. People go in to get him, not realising just what he's built.

It's a great movie with a massive WTF feeling the whole way through, but in a good way. I loved it.

9/10

Last movie I watched was on yesterday. The name of the movie - Apocalypto and director is Mel Gibson. A great movie that I saw after a long time and really loved watching the end part especially. Great actors, great direction, fight sequences and set. Really loved it!

Say what you like about Mel Gibson, there's a fair few things you can beat him with, but he's a fucking excellent director. Braveheart, Apocalypto and Hacksaw Ridge are cracking films. I must confess, I've never seen Passion of the Christ, but it seems to have a decent reputation (Tarred by Gibson's actions in real life. The Man Without a Face is one I've not seen either and haven't really heard of, but even if it is a dud, it's not a bad track record.

A Quiet Place - 8/10 (cinema) - One of the best horrors I've seen in a long time. Tense as f**k throughout, and actually has a consistently excellent storyline rather than falling to pieces towards the end like most other similar sort of films do. John Krasinski is excellent, as is the girl playing his daughter.

 

Journeyman - 7/10 (cinema) - Pretty bleak watch. Hardly a boxing film and more a story of how the person affected and those around him struggle to deal with a brain injury. Paddy Considine and Jodie Whittaker are both great in the lead roles.
