I agree, total nonsense. It's like Thor, mixed with the mummy, mixed with SpongeBob.

Just watched " Forbidden games  ;  The Justin Fashanu story" on Netflix.   It was excellent.  It details his struggles  of him and his brother John being abandoned by their birth parents then adopted by a white couple being accepted for being the first out gay player and issues related to his race.   Some startling  homophobic comments from the 1980s in archive footage.  He is being interviewed  on a Scottish chat show and a white working class middle aged man condemns his " vile homosexual lifestyle".   It details his " romps" with MPs and with Bet Lynch ( Julie Goodyear) !!! He also became a Born again Christian which again was not the best move to help him with his internalised homophobia.  His brother is interviewed a lot and he seems to regret ( slightly) how he didn't want his brother to come ( again which made Justin feel more self loathing ). He also condemned his lifestyle.  Hes got a lot to answer to.  There is a fake scene at the end where he sheds a tear talking about Justin.  It doesn't gloss over the allegation of rape either.

All The Money In The World

 

The most I've enjoyed a film in a while. I enjoy a good thriller and this is one in my opinion, keeps your attention with strong exciting scenes. And there's alot of great performances: Michelle Williams seems to disappear into films acting wise and Christopher Plummer is fantastic in every scene, plus Mark Wahlberg is solid as well, I thought he was a good casting choice. Recommend it

 

8/10

Yes i thought this too. Kept one on the edge of the seat. Really good film and Plummer was excellent. Did you know he replaced Kevin Spacey who was cut out from the original edit of the film due to his scandals?   Michelle Williams is a very good actress and even Wahlberg was fine ( not much a fan of his)

Agree totally on Wahlberg, he was fine. He was used sparingly and didn't have particularly tough scenes

 

Ye I knew that. Inspired choice, I couldn't imagine Spacey in that part. And infact him there the film wouldn't be anywhere near as strong in my opinion

BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYAL

 

Really liked this thriller about several strangers who end up at a hotel with a shady past.

Film jumps around a bit from each guests perspective and back story.

Jeff Bridges is excellent in this.

Also has Dakota Johnson, John Hamm and Chris Hemsworth.

 

8/10

End of the world post apocalypse film, with Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning. Interesting film, loads of good ideas and scenes, and Dinklage and Fanning are both excellent. Nice soundtrack too

Damp squib as a film, plenty action but not much dialogue. I thought it was a poor James Bond film

I can't decide if I liked it or not.

Although the first story with Buster I definitely liked a lot.

Got off to fantastic start, other stories dragged on and on.

Not the best story but epic and absolutely brutal fight scenes make up for it.

BUMBLEBEE 

Took my son to see this and both enjoyed it.

Plenty robots fighting to keep him happy and lots of 80's music and references to keep me interested.

 

7/10  

 

BIRD BOX

Science fiction thriller with Sandra Bullock.

Some sort of entity that if you see it you kill yourself. 

Reasonably good film but not as tense as a quiet place

Just one of those films that keeps your attention every minute due to its quality. A horrible childhood McCourt had but film wise, it's strong stuff

Johnny English Strikes Again

 

I didn't even stick with it to the end, which I don't like doing but I didn't see any reason to. Random and really unfunny film that isn't anywhere near the first two

Ideal Home 7/10

 

Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd are a rich gay couple who end up having to look after Steve's grandson. Feelings ensue. 

 

I get bored very very easily so it's a minor miracle I got through such a slow moving film. 

Once I got past Alan Partridge and Crapbag from Friends being a couple it wasn't awful. I smiled a couple of times and got to the end, a rarity in a film without excitement, drama, action or tits. 

 

Not my normal cup of tea but deserves a decent score for getting me to the end without a single tantrum or walkout.

Holmes & Watson. 

3/10.

Watch the trailer because all the funny bits are in that. 

Will Ferrell by numbers, a very poor effort saved only by John C Reilly who is brilliant and Rebecca Hall in a basque.

One for the Will Ferrell die hards.

Saw Bohemian Rhapsody on Friday. Great film and some fine acting especially Rami Malek playing Freddie and the guys playing Brian May and John Deacon. 

 

Had to hold back the tears a couple of times and tapping my feet to the music.

Bohemian Rhapsody

 

Very strong film. Some great scenes throughout and I felt time flies watching it due to how exciting every scene was. I thought Rami Malik was brilliant as Freddie Mercury, he is an actor I will watch out for in the future

 

9/10

Just watched Bohemian Rhapsody - simply superb 9/10. This film is a must see. As other posters have said Malik's performance was tip top. The 2 hours flew by. Will see again. 

 

10/10

 

Great fly through the career of Queen and Freddie's life. 

 

Non stop.

Here's a wee comparison of the Live Aid concert performances

Watched Casino again last night with the GF. Warned her it had some pretty disturbing scenes in it which didn't bother her. Not only is it a fantastic film, it has 2 incredible acting performances in it by Joe Pesci as the unhinged Nicky Santoro and Sharon Stone's performance as Ginger which is a true acting masterclass. 

 

Old but very very brilliant!!

The reviews have been awful.  I tend to trust them.  Im more looking forward to John C Reily as OLiver Hardy and Steve Coogan as Stan Laurel in " stan and ollie" which opens soon. It looks terrific. They were outstanding comedians and such a beautiful relationship on screen and off.

My son wanted to see H&W.....

 

I really fancy the Stan and Ollie film. Odeon have a showing tomorrow but I only get to see kids movies at weekends due to having my kids. All my own choice of viewing are midweek trips.

Yes me to. Its mainly about their trip to the UK in the late 40s early 50s where incredibly they played to some half full houses.  But carried on regardless. Stan was inconsolable when Ollie died. Stan was the brains and creative genius behind their success. Ollie knew this and had no jealousy about this but he obviously made them a success too. Today's so called " talented" double acts should take note.  * Ant and Dec !! Yuck...I will probably go and see it at the Dominion or Cameo

Really liked them when I was wee but havent seen any of their stuff for years and no very little about their lives. Will probably enjoy the movie and end up buying a collection of their movies :)

Yeah Im a big fan as I recall watching them on TV as kid.  Their films and short films are sometimes shown on Channel 81 Talking Pictures which is a great channel if you like old films. I do. Ollie died in 1957 and Stan died in 1965.

One of my very favourite films, as you say Joe Pesci and Sharon Stone are brilliant in it, de Niro too of course. I can't even begin to count how many times I've seen it.

I think Pesci is amazing. He can do any role. The big names now (Cumberbatch, Fassbender) not a patch on him in my opinion.

I, Daniel Blake

 

Heard great things, but I find Loach's films sometimes very one dimensional with rubbish characters and this seemed an unhappy slog so I avoided it. I was very impressed by this though, well acted, lots of excellent sub plots and scenes. Not much bad to say about this one. If you want a good independent film that has controversial things to say (rightly so too in my opinion) then it's worth a watch

That's right. But acting wise he can do it all in those roles. The Irishman is his next film, Martin Scorsese directing, have a look at the cast for that..
