Saw that Dunkirk last night. 8.5/10 but take some earplugs. Not cos of the noise of battle, but the soundtrack, it's an incessant racket.

Atomic Blonde - Stylish Spy action film set around the time of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Typical "recover list of agents been stolen, watch out for double agents" storyline but realistic and brutal fight scenes and well told. I liked it a lot. 9/10

 

Valerian and the city of a thousand planets - I enjoyed this one too. The fantasy world is clearly well thought out and planned, it's looks and feels great, my only problem was casting - Valerian may be in his 30's but he's got a babyface that makes him look like he is in his teens and then there is Cara Delevigne and Rhianna (or however you spell their names) who are just too recognizable and too bad at acting to be really believable. But still once I got past that I liked it and it's worth watching. 7/10

 

High Rise - Agree with Art on this one... I can see why some people might like it but it's not my thing. Things go nuts in a tower block where a class war starts between the people living in the posh upper levels and the common lower levels. It's all a bit bonkers. 4/10

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power - Powerful documentary sequel to the original released 10 years ago on Climate Change. Good stuff again, although last time it was really just Al Gore's slideshow... this one was a bit more self-agrandising with him almost portraying himself as the lone hero fighting and putting himself on a pedestal. 7/10

 

The Hitman's Bodyguard - I enjoyed this but it is all a bit cliche. All the actors basically just put in there standard performances - Ryan Reynolds, Samual L Jackson, Salma Hayek have all done this before, Gary Oldman even reuses his Dracula accent. Still it's good fun, amusing and tongue in cheek action scenes. A Hitman under witness protection has to be transported to a trial from the UK to - i forget - a city in Europe anyway. Worth a watch though. 6/10

Dunkirk i saw about a month ago. Incredible film. No pc nonsense like Atomic Blonde(Random has horrible taste in films and should be barred from reviewing film on this forum).

 

Dunkirk should be shown in ALL UK schools....

 

8.5 out of 10...

I'll have you know I have the best taste in films of anyone I know Saurus... well I do own the Van Wilder trilogy on DVD but apart from that!!

 

Out of interest, how is Atomic Blonde "pc"?

 

Get Over It - One of those American Pie type comedies from the early 2000's, it's very loosely based on Midsummer Night's Dream story. A few laughs I suppose after a couple of drinks, mainly at the quite terrible "british accent" one of them has. 4/10

Age of heroes. Danny Dyer and Sean Bean. 7.5/10. British war film with low budget so kept real, unlike Hollywood bollocks.

I read somewhere Sean Bean has had more onscreen deaths than any other actor B)

 

In Order of Disappearance - Darkly comic Norwegian crime drama/thriller. A father seeks revenge on a ganger for the murder of his son, things escalate from there. Things escalate quite a lot. 7/10

 

Livid -  A woman in a coma has hidden treasure in her house. Or possibly there's something more disturbing, it's one or the other..... French arty horror fairytale sort of thing 6/10

 

The Stanford Prison Experiment - Drama based on a real experiment from the 70s where a bunch of students are put in a prison situation and randomly allocated roles as guards or prisoners. I'd read about this before so knew roughly what was coming, but I'll pretend I didn't and go 7/10

Alien Covenant - I'm a fan of the "franchise", enjoyed Prometheus (I know it had it's critics) and I thought this latest offering was very good. Some bits that didn't quite add up and all geared up for another follow up film to be made. I'm giving it a solid 9/10

Let me in, an alternative take on Let the right on in.  I much prefered Let the right one in and would give that 9/10.  Let me in is a lot more cliched though and only gets a 6.

Yeah, the original is a much better film. Even with the cat scene t09037.gif

 

There's a good comparison/explanation of the difference type thing here:

 

 


 

Philomena - A journalist helps a woman track down the son she was forced to give up in fact based British drama. I liked that and it was funnier I was expecting. Art awards 8/10

 

Amores Perros - Mexican drama where three seperate stories come together linked by a car crash, and dogs. I'll go 7.5/10

After watching that I realized I got my scores horribly wrong, the US version was shit.  It's on a par with other abysmal sequals/remakes such as An American Werewolf in Paris and Jaws 3D.  Let the right one in though is great.  Something that isn't mentioned is the vampire has questionable gender and started life as a boy, the second film with pretty every other part of the story, ditches this.

Spotlight. True story about the Boston herald (the American one not the Lincolnshire one), uncovering noncey priests in the Catholic Church. Only watched it for the chance of seeing some god botherer getting his head stoved in along the line, but it was just constant yapping

Room - A woman raises her son in the single room where they're kept prisoner. 8.5/10

 

Zero Motivation - A group of female soldiers count down the days of their military service in quirky Israeli comic drama 6.5/10

 

Pet - That musician guy from Lost tries to 'save' a woman in horror thriller type thing. Best not to know anymore going in, It's not great so you need all the surprises you can get. 5/10

 

Easy Money - Swedish crime drama/thriller 7/10
