Rarely post following demise of Lovefilm but watched a couple tonight

 

Wildling

7/10

very surprising and odd film which wife and I both liked. Not where I expected it to go.

 

Christopher Robin

5/10

Wife liked it more but interesting biopic and what fame can do to child.

 

Cinema Paradiso is decent if folks still like getting their paws on a DVD or BR

Ha ha. I watched that the night before. My daughter loves this kind of tosh. I was trying to block it from my memory. ?

 

Made $175m profit at the BO too!

 

Was truly awful

Brave

 

More Pixar magic. Only they can make a film like it, what impressed the most was the Scottish Mythology side of it, it may not be all be true (who cares it's a film to be honest), but you can really appreciate the effort that went into it from all involved

 

9/10

I watched "Come hell or High Water" on Film4  just before Xmas. Would highly recommend - I'd never heard of the movie but it had great critical acclaim and a few Oscar nominations. Good story, great acting from Jeff Bridges and an unexpected twist in the ending.

Went to see Bumblebee yesterday, brilliant movie. Yes John Cenas character and acting are corny, but it’s meant to be.

 

Loved it...9/10

Green Book,

 

Watched this last night after a mates recommendation. It’s based on a true story and is a cracking movie. So glad he recommended it to me, as I think it would have been a movie that slipped me by. It really is a good movie, you’ll not be disappoin.

 

 

9/10

The Favourite. Really enjoyed it. Olivia Coleman is excellent in it. Thought the ending was a bit disappointing 8/10

Saw it as well. I think it is an excellent film yes. I was surprised by the humour, I didn't know it was by the same guy that did The Lobster. Yes she was as was Emma Stone. Agree with your score

Yeah i know what u mean. I had limitless card for Cineworld and I cancelled it when I reached my nadir of going to see a film with Zac Efron in it...!! Just to use my card.  The card always seems a good idea if willing to just go see anything.

I saw " Stan and Ollie " today. Its outstanding. Coogan and Reilly were so believable as them. In their mannerism, body language and their comedy routines.  Its a really beautiful and moving tribute to them and Id highly recommend it. As well as being very funny it explored their relationship quite accurately and I had tears in my eyes at the end in between the laughs.  I am  gobsmacked their neither actor have been considered in the awards season.  Just cant fathom it.   

 

8/10

Saw it this afternoon and agree with everything you say. Reilly was excellent, as was Coogan.

 

8/10  from me too.

 

Afternoon off so I also watched Spiderman: Spiderverse.

 

Excellent 8/10.

 

A good afternoon spent in the cinema!

Finished work and went to see Stan and Ollie. First film in what must be years that I've not checked my phone or the time once. Completely hooked from the first shot to the last. Terrific movie!

JCR was up for best actor in a comedy at the Globes. Coogan I believe got a bafta nomination but I might be off on that one. More award bait roles will unfortunately overshadow these two however

Yes I did check what awards they had been nominated for,   Not that many as such .  No " New York Critics" or other such prestigious awards.  Yea Coogan has the British Bafta Nomination but what happened to Reilly?  They are equally as good.  I think this year as you say more " awards bait" performances are saturating the market ( Bradly Cooper, Christian Bale, Rami Malek et al) whether they are better than Coogan or Reilly who knows.  Im always more amazed who hasn't won an Oscar anyway. Its never the greatest barometer of acting talent at times as its usually a popularity contest, or someone wins for sentimental reasons and usually due to a film having big box office too .  Thais why I think Malek will walk away with the Best actor.  Those who haven't won a competitive Oscar are an incredible group.,  Garbo, Deborah Kerr, Chaplin, Irene Dunne, Cary Grant, Barbara Stanwyck er al.

I’ve always thought JCR is an underrated actor, never been keen on Coogan but might give their new one a watch. Also JCR fans watch criminal, it’s a bit older but a great watch with a very good cast including Maggie Gyllenhall and Diego Luna and a belter of a twist at the end

I've got to agree about John C. Reilly, a fantastic actor and much underrated. 

Red Sparrow. 

8/10.

I dont think he is underrated more he doesn't get the lead parts.  He has often had rave reviews for his performances i believe. Seems he is always the bridesmaid never the bride judging my nominations he has had. His time will come.  .

Watched "The Shape of Water" last night with Mrs Vlad Magic.

 

Strange strange film. We both had similar comments on it. It's like "Splash" only on acid? Random acts of female nudity and self pleasure mixed in with a surreal love story between fish man and mute woman?

 

I really cant describe it any other way?

 

Anyone else seen it able to give a better summary?

I wouldn't avoid it as such? It's actually not a bad film? It's just a bit weird?

 

It's very weird actually. Visually its very pretty. It's also quite charming in places but so very strange how one minute its this classy love story with a young mute lady feeding this alien eggs then all of a sudden its gross as a blokes decaying fingers break off from his hand? 

 

Its "neither one nor tutha" as a famous Yorkshire man once said ;)

Just back from Stan & Ollie and agree with this review. Coogan & Reilly were inspired castings. Felt really sad at the end.

I watched it on a flight, my daughter had been raving about it so went into it not that arsed cos our tastes are very different.  I cried like a big Jessie at the song and dance bit.

It is a very strange and beautiful film. Some fine acting in it too.

I’m not disagreeing with any of that, but there is something I just love about Statham films. You know what you’re going to get when you sit down, just roll with it. Love the Crank movies, but Meg and The Mechanic are definitely his poorest.

How was Upside @Carl Fredrickson 

 

I saw a trailer for this and looks like I would like it.

 

Also when someone sees Glass and Vice would appreciate some reviews as looking to go see all 3 on the big screen.

 

Thanks

Only managed Stan and Ollie on Monday - but just in from Upside. Told folk at work I was going to see it tonight and they said it got poor reviews. I really enjoyed it. Lots of laughs but also lots of talking points and things to think about. 7/10 (closer to an 8 than a 6)

 

Glass and Vice are on my list (along with Mary Queen of Scots). Probably see at least one of them on Monday. Good time of year to have limitless!

I have been looking into this but the only Cineworld or Odeon are miles away from me, the only 2 real close ones to me are Showcase in Coatbridge and Vue at the Fort and neither offers limitless offer which is a pain in the hoop.

 

Thanks for the review will go so this now Saturday or Sunday.

 

Cheers :thumb:

Watched Vice the other day and it’s a very good movie, Bale is brilliant in it. With that being said I think McKay should stick to W.Ferrell comedies. The film does get the heart rate up similar to the Big Short though ??

I absolutely hated Bale until I watched him in The Fighter and now love him. 

 

Was genuinely gutted when he was replaced by Affleck as Batman ???
