The Official JKB What Was The Last Film You Watched...

Recommended Posts

Dagger Is Back

American Animals 5/10

 

The true story of 4 US fellas who plan the theft of some very rare and valuable books from a University.

 

Lots of flashbacks and fast forwards and had lots of potential, but it dragged for me.

American Animals

 

I will agree with the above poster with his comments, but I enjoyed the acting, the main guy Evan Peters is a total natural and very good here. Lots of exciting scenes too. I enjoyed it

 

8/10

Vice. 

 

Like Michael Moores films this is viewing things from one side but if half what the film say sis true, then Dick Cheney is aptly named. 

 

8/10

The Lego Movie 2 

 

Loved it. Very clever movie. Probably bias as the kids and I love Lego.

 

Laughed out loud at one point 8/10

The Frenchman Returns

Mad to be normal

 

4/10

 

An odd one. David Tennant plays R.D. Laing the sixties Scottish psychiatrist who had very different methods of treating the mentally ill and in particular Schizophrenia. He was either a visionary or an utter mentalist. Mrs F hated it whilst I found it quite interesting.

 

One let down was not knowing what happened to some of the characters.

BlacKkKlansman. Fantastic stuff although (as mentioned above) a lot of the drama in the second half of the movie is a major departure from actual events. In parts funny, in parts horrifying. Set in the 70s but lot of deliberate nods to racism in the Trump era and the ending is particularly poignant. Great acting all around, and maybe Spike Lee gets that Oscar.

 

9/10

Aquaman 9/10

Brilliant, by far the best D.C film and up there with Marvel.

I watched this on Wednesday and liked the idea of the film but not the film itself. (Hope that makes sense)

The Kid Who Would Be King. 6/10

My 8 year old boy gave it 10/10

 

A cross between Lord of the Rings, Home Alone and the Goonies. 

 

It was the first time the Odeon at WH showed this film and after the trailers the film didnt start. Lights went out and background music started playing. We went and told the staff and as a result I learnt a lot of how cinemas work.

The films are available for them to download from a secure sight and they are meant to be checked by a manager prior to the first showing. In this instance, the manager was late in arriving and the staff assumed all was well with the download. When it didnt work, they then had to download it again.

There was about a 59 minute delay but the staff were really nice and we got whatever refreshments we wanted for free plus vouchers for free entry to the cinema for our next visit.

Happy New Year, Colin Burstread

 

An excellent film with great characters and great performances. Typical Ben Wheatley, he is a clever director the way he makes films, always well edited and inventive, and I liked the humour in this too. Recommend it

I've just finished watching Blackkklansman, only £1.99 on Amazon just now. 

 

Very good film, probably Spike Lee's most accomplished film so far. Excellent performances from all the cast with special mention to Adam Driver. The last few minutes in particular are incredibly powerful. I thoroughly recommend it.

Life of the party

 

0/10

 

Melissa  McCarthy stars in this utter pile of crap. I hated it but my wife wanted to watch it. Supposedly a comedy about a wife who has a divorce sprung on her so joins her daughter at university.

Shock and Awe

 

Decent movie about the press in the USA that tried to expose the lies after 9/11 that led to the war in Iraq. 7/10

She is painfully unfunny.
