    Watching American History X for about the 50th time, Ed Norton is a brilliant actor.

    Quality film. Edward Furlongs career has fair taken a nose dive

    Hereditary

    I was recommended this film by a pal..

    It’s dark, depressing,and fairly horrible / shocking ,but it kept me glued until the end.

    So the film has something and is a well thought out supernatural horror .

    I’d give it an easy 7 as the film creates an atmosphere its set out to create.
    Quite creepy.

    Robin Hood looks total garbage man.

    I’m a sucker for a good crimbo film but The Grinch looks pish as well. Jim Carreys one was the business.

    Susperia

    Although am not a horror fan, it was an unsettling and uncomfortable experience, about a coven of witches controlling a dance troupe. Although the dance sequences I cannot really comment on, the essence of the story, told to the grey backdrop of 1970's era Berlin, that chimes in an ethereal way, that were very reminiscent of David Lynch type sequences.

    Robin Hood

    Oh dear. Early in the film there is a voice over that tells the viewer to forget history, forget the legemd etc. Wasn't the only thng that they should have warned people to forget about, because the way they bastardize history and the peroid in general, not to mention the RH legend itself beggars belief. If the film makers were trying to make Robin Hood into the new 300, it fails at that as well. The proposition in the epilogue sequence in which is setting up sequel/franchise didn't fuel my desire for more of this, but hopefully better sense prevails and this will be soon forgotten, just like the history and legend that we were told to forget. Its not about suspending disbelief, it's just a shambles.

    Wreck It Ralph breaks the internet. It was a decent watch, felt like an advertisement in a lot of ways though.

    Watched The Greatest Showman there with the bairns.

    Not even ashamed to say I probably enjoyed it more than anycunt in the room.

    Brilliant from start to finish, even for a musical!

    Pretty much agree with this. Thought the premise had so much potential but the end result was kinda underwhelming and felt a bit lazy to me. Even my daughter said she spent most of the movie marking out at the little easter eggs more than being engrossed in the narrative being told. And truth be told they are plentiful and in and of themselves are entertaining, but because of this it kinda fails as a cohesive film. Very much a case of diminishing returns after the vastly superior original.

    Venom found it quite funny at times and enjoyed it.... Thought I wouldn't seeing what critics were saying only thing really was the baddie was only their in the sense they had to have a baddie of sorts for the ending...... Was really more about seeing the symbiosis between Eddie brock and venom
