The General. Great film about Martin Cahill starring Brendan Gleeson.
I haven't seen that in years, it was brilliant though. Gleeson is some actor.
Prisoners - Very good. Would recommend.
The Perks of being a Wallflower - Wasnt mad about it at all tbh.
Great film, imo.
Just watched The Hustler again, incredible film.
Watched Blow with Johnny Depp the other night. Somehow had never heard of it but stumbled across it on Netflix.
finally watched the remake of The Magnificent 7 last night , thoroughly enjoyed it .
It's taken me too long to watch that. Really enjoyable, cheesy teen horror. Decent cast in it as well.
City of Lies - Johnny Depp investigates the Biggy and Tupac murders. Disappointing 5/10.
Murder Mystery - Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston unfunny *. 4/10 and the 4 points is only for how tidy Jeniffer Aniston still is at 50 year old!
The new Men In Black film, was half decent.
Think I've already commented on this film in here, I loved it for nostalgic reasons as I'm a massive fan of the original. But if I'm honest it was too violent to be scary. Too much of Rob Zombie's halloween feel for me.
I understand there is a new younger audience being targeted who may find the 1978 version to be a pile of * but for me it's suspense and lack of direct gore or violence made the original a very scary film.
Toy Story 4, enjoyed it. Post credits scene suggests there will be more films too.
Aye love Gleeson he's a class actor
Toy Story 4. Superb, Pixar hit it out the park time and time again with Toy Story.
Aimed at every age group, easy viewing, funny, sad, thought invoking, happy. Cinema was rammed full of grandparents, parents and children and everyone I’ve spoke to has loved it.
Toy Story 4
Will need to sit through it again and there are number of key shifts in tone and most especially, in emphasis from the 3 previous films, which are and remain a complete story arch.
Soreally, instead of referring to this as 4 in the same series as a continuation of that arch, it is almost as if this is using characters from that but it is a transition to something new.
I liked that they introduced new characters and phased some of the old backing cast out. Prevents it from becoming stale and recycled.
Interesting take. Only criticism I’ve read about it (very little) is that they’ve rehashed the same things they’ve done in the previous 3 films.
Don’t personally agree with it but that’s the general feeling from what I’ve read.
This is true, especially in the first half of the film, but then it moves away with the shift in tone etc. Don't want to say too much but yeah... and is also why i want to revisit it and sit through it again, to see if, now knowing about what happens later in the film alters the perspective of those earlier parts of the film.
Class and * harrowing.
