Thinking of seeing Hidden Figures and Christine (that one about the newscaster who shot herself). Any of you seen either of them?
 
That Elle looks alright as well.

I watched "Sabotage" on telly the other night as my internet is down at home atm. 
 
It was sort of watchable initially, although I was a bit jarred by the gratuitous violence when it seemed almost a bit pornographic.
 
By the time the credits rolled, my thoughts were so clear they could have been in Helvitica font "You really should have known better David"

I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore.

Won this years Sundance. Really enjoyable, gets slightly daft towards the end. 8/10

It's on netters.

going to see Logan wasn't my first choice, but i actually really enjoyed it...
 

was thinking a lot about why most of the other x-men films don'd do anything for me, but Logan did, and i think it's because the others all try to be all things to all people... shiny action, love story, geeky comic nods, etc
 
Logan was just stripped back, focused and had its own (dirty) personality
 
reminds me of a western / road movie more than anything
 
some good scraps, action scenes and OTT violence too

"Make no mistake, The Evil Within is very clearly the handiwork of a rank amateur under the influence of powerful narcotics. The film was horrifically ill-advised from the very start, working from the premise of a man with learning difficulties who commits grisly murders on the commands of his reflection in an evil mirror." 
 
lol, sounds sick

"The finished product plays like an unholy fusion of A Nightmare on Elm Street and the fictitious “Simple Jack” from the showbiz satire Tropic Thunder."

 
Wow. Definitely going on my watchlist.

Christine was quite good but unpleasant to watch her slowly fall apart. Guess that was to be expected really.

So it looks like some films will soon be available to stream 17 days after they are in the cinema for about $50, it's only Disney that are against it at the moment. Would anyone actually pay that much? Even though it's cheaper than a few of you going to the cinema it doesn't seem great value, i think i would generally rather just go the cinema or wait to buy it on Blu Ray or stream it.

Baby Driver trailer

new edgar wright film. looks excellent




yeh this looks wicked, put it on my watchlist t'other day


Seriously? Thought this looked awful. It's basically the plot of Drive re-done with unnecessary bells and whistles and no brooding Ryan Gosling to swoon over

Logan - 9/10 The third and final solo Wolverine film in the X-Men franchise. Unlike all of the other films in this franchise, this is inspired not so much by comic books or other Marvel films, but by the likes of Little Miss Sunshine and The Wrestler. Director James Mangold has opted for a much more sombre tone giving the film a weighty realism which lends itself very well to the on screen dramas that unfold.
Much like the finale of a beloved long running TV series, this is a meticulously planned out story that ensures Hugh Jackman gets to give Logan the swansong he deserves. The approval of an R rating by the studio meant that the filmmakers no longer had a vested interest that this film would play with children. Not only does this mean we're finally getting to see Wolverine in a gratuitous, ultra-violent, no holds barred manner, but also allows the films to tackle some tougher themes.
The Wrestler is frequently cited as a big inspiration for this film and whilst it's not quite as drenched in melancholy and poignancy, it certainly follows a lot of the same beats. Jackman and Rourke both portraying aging, lethargic men who lack a sense of purpose in life.
It's also great to finally see a comic book film which has ambiguity and unexplained plot points. At points it alludes to certain past events but doesn't feel the need to hold the audiences hand and show everything in a condescending way.
I was really looking forward to seeing Merchant but was left a little disappointed. He essentially just plays himself where I'd hoped this might have been a bit of a breakthrough role for him.
In general, the performances across the board are incredible. Stewart and Jackman find new depths to their characters almost 10 films in which is testament to their dedication to the role. Dafne Keen is all bite and no bark as the muted infant mutant.
Easily one of the best X-Men films which has both heartfelt sentimentality and severed head splatter in equal measure. Hopefully a bit of financial success here will pave way to seeing more R rated blockbusters being made. This film has benefited from the rating so much it has to be seen as a bit of a game changer.
 
 
The Young Offenders - 7/10
 
On Netflix at the moment. Quirky, off beat comedy about a couple of young lads from Cork who go out in search of a missing haul of cocaine. I thought this was pretty funny and original. Looked great in 4K.
 
The Nice Guys - 8/10
 
Was really looking forward to this and it didn't disappoint. Shane Black at the top of his game. The writing is insanely good. Highly original and plenty of belly laughs. It didn't make much money so a sequel is unlikely. This gets me hyped for 'The Predator' coming next year, also to be written and directed by Black.

That seems excessive for watching it at home, especially as things seem to come out on bluray in about 2 months these days.
 
I quite like going to the cinema (usually go to an indie one which is usually not that busy, cineworlds are hell) as the act of going seems to make me pay more attention. Seeing what they're showing allows me to keep up with what's coming out as well.

Moonlight - 9/10 A refreshing, understated film; and I love how much it annoys people.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail - 9.5/10 Seems to get better with age - unlike some other MP stuff. Relevant today more than ever. Cleese at his best.

Hate to break it to you, but that's my account on boards. Yes I did write that.

Personally, I think google searching my review because you didn't believe I was capable of writing it is even more pathetic.

beware the slenderman
 
hbo doc on the story of two 12 yr old girls who took their friend out to some woods, stabbed her and left her to die to appease the 'slenderman'. eye opening in terms of the power of the internet on young minds...although it is clear quite early on that one of the girls especially has some quite severe mental issues also
 
was saying to my mrs that am actually glad that i/we/our generation didnt have ipads/iphones etc etc when i was growing up. the access to all the shit online when youre so young and impressionable can be v damaging
 
interesting watch though. v similar to making a murderer in terms of style and so on

Innit, even if that's his post on the other forum, why the fuck would you copy that word for word to here?  Makes him sound like some kind of bent amateur film critic with too much time on his hands.
