Not seen the machinist yet, might give it a miss now. Another good Bale film is 3:10 to Yuma, him and Crowe worked well I thought

I never liked westerns as a kid but love the "newer "type of ones such as the great " 350 to Yuma" and " Unforgiven" More revisionist and realistic. No chasing the " injuns"

Watched the Quincy Jones doc on Netflix.

Loved it. 

What a man! 

Is give it a 9/10 but I like his productions anyway so I'm not sure how it would go for someone who isn't necessarily a fan.

The Machinist is a brilliant film. Bale is outstanding in it.

Mary queen of Scots. 8/10. Both female parts played very well if a little historically inaccurate. Have to say it left me thinking that Mary was a bit gobby and brought a lot of it on herself!

Suspiria

6.5/10

Weird horror about a dance school ran by witches. The ending in particular is mental.

I watched " A twelve year night"  last night on Netflix.  Its a stunning film about 3 " political agitators"  who are then taken prisoner / hostage for 12 years. in Uruguay .  Its harrowing stuff at times but ultimately uplifting .  It shows how they were dehumanised and degraded in an attempt to break their spirit in the hope they go mad or kill themselves. Its excellent.  One of those films we i was hooked right from the start.  8/10 

 

On the other hand before I saw the above  ,  i attempted to watch " Winchester" with the great Helen Mirren. I gave it 30 mins and binned it. Pile of crap.

Mary Queen of Scots 

 

Visually strong. But I felt it dragged infact I was surprised to even see the credits. But there is some good acting and it does flow quite well most of the time. Better than I expected

 

7/10

I think this is the third part of a trilogy, of which have seen Ubreakable but not Split. 

 

Decent enough sort of superhero film. James McAvoy plays his role very well. 7/10

"Roma".  On Nerflix is very good. Slow film and nothing much happens as such but its a lovely film about family life and about a maid who works for a middle class Mexican family.   Its beautifully filmed in black and white.   I noticed it received 10 well deserved Oscar nominations today, both the actresses are nominated which is nice to see Mexican actors recognised.  8/10 from me.

Mary Queen of Scots. Disappointing. On her arrival at Leith did Mary really have to virtually swim ashore on a rocky coastline?  Having to that time spent her entire life in France did she really immediately (or ever?) have a Scottish accent (veering frequently towards an Irish accent)? The fictional meeting with Elixabeth is maybe a legitimate bit of artistic licence but why was it held in a barn with row after row of hanging bedsheets where the two queens play a sort of hide and seek? The story is sketchily and some times confusingly told with many missing events and periods. As a drama it sort of works though more like a Shakespeare adaptation than a historic re-enaction. Well acted though I thought the actor playing Elizabeth edged the one playing Mary.

A SIMPLE FAVOUR 

Quirky thriller starring Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick.

Some funny dialogue and well acted. Got a bit silly at the end for me still worth a watch.

6/10

Also caught the last hour of In Bruges on film 4.

A must see if you haven't already.

Seconded. Hopefully will appeal to anyone but I suspect especially to those who watched their films in Saturday morning cinemas or on black and white  television. Both leads are excellent, George C Riley as Ollie at least as good as Steve Coogan's Stan.

(as an aside it did cross my mind at one point that the audiences looked rather smart, middle class and wealthy ... but then recalled that everyone including (indeed possibly especially) the poor dressed better then than almost anyone does  today - in theatres, cinemas or indeed almost anywhere)

Ye the attention to detail in the film is very strong throughout. I even noticed Oliver Hardy's pyjamas with Ollie written on the pocket

Mary Queen Of Scots

 

Very good film. Two leading ladies were excellent with a strong support cast. Not sure how historically accurate it was (i imagine a lot of stuff from so far back could be "open to interpretation)

The Firm

 

Gary Oldman leads a group of football hooligans fighting against rival gangs, Alan Clarke TV film from the 80s probably. Decided to take a punt on it.

 

Brilliant watch, my respect for Gary Oldman as an actor only grows. An incredible actor. As for the show itself. High quality, an interesting script throughout

A Dogs Way Home. A fathers love for his kids can be measured by the crap he will watch with them. 

 

8 and 3 year old kids loved it. Me not so much. I couldnt even doze off as my 3 year old was clambering over me whilst it was on.

 

Bright side is that the Lego Movie is out in a couple of weeks.

Bohemian Rhapsody 7/10

I'm a Queen fan, I mean we have a painting of Freddie, but it's just not as good as I expected from the hype.

I enjoyed the musical bits of course, and the lad's performance was good, but I thought it was edging towards boring and was a bit clumsy in places.

Polar, sort of Kill Bill style with Mads Mikkelson and Matt Lucas playing a Bond style baddie.

 

Quite enjoyed it and some lovely scantily clad ladies to look at in between gratuitous violence.

One of my mates whatsapped our group saying we have to watch this, said it was great. Two days later and another mate texts the group to say that it’s absolute pish.

Ill second that . I watched it last night. Only word to describe it is bonkers.  I actually thought it was really good, manic and never  stops for a minute... Very violent but anything with Mads Mikkelson  ( suave ) is well worth watching.  I noticed the snooty Guardian gave it one star review !! Couldn't believe it. I thought it was great . Also very funny at times.

Yes its completely overrated. It does the unimaginable...it makes Freddie appear boring and dull and glossed over much of his lifestyle and sexuality. It might as well have been made by Disney.  I think its peoples affection for Freddie which is distorted their opinion of the film. Id give it 6/10.  The concert scenes are very good though

6 was my first instinct too but the band scenes meant it deserved more, they really were good.

AQUAMAN 6/10

Bit long I felt and one of the villains looks like a bad guy from the Power Rangers. 

Some good fight scenes and Jason Momoa is likable enough in this role.

Saw this on Sunday with my 10yr old son and both of us agree with all the above. The acting from all the cast was superb. Shirley Hendred on as Ollie's wife was superb as they all were.

Dunno if it was classed as a film or a docufilm but watched that Abducted in Plain Sight last night.

 

That was a bat shit mental storyline.

 

Won't spoil it for anyone however if you liked Making a Murderer then you will love this!

 

Don't want to give it a score as it really wasn't enjoyable but was really really gripping!

Ben Miller steals that film imho. Very good film though as is the original with Glenn Ford.

Had to look your post up as that was surprising trivia. It's Ben Foster, although I like Miller as a comedy actor too

Never really liked westerns ( especially the old ones about injuns) but much prefer the new more realistic depiction. 350 to Yuma was fantastic. Russel Crowe is probably my favourite modern actor. Reminds me of Brando

" Blackkklansman" . Watched it last night. Its very good. Read up about it later and slightly disappointed that a lot of it is made up . However still a very good film. Very pertinent to day with the right wing on the rise in the USA and its savage about Trump.   The acting was superb . Especially the up and coming actor Adam Driver.  Hes One to watch.   Spike Lee is nominated for best director at the Oscars.  Hope he wins. Long overdue.   8/10
