Hampden Demolition

The Game with Michael Douglas and Sean Penn. Was confused as to what was happening at first but it turned out to be quite good.

 

7/10.

 

Also watched Cold Pursuit expecting it to be a dark thriller but it was actually quite funny in parts.

 

6/10.

Saw The Game about 20 years ago and loved it. Had to watch it a second time to try and get what was going on!

I barely ever go to the cinema but flew out to Australia on my holidays last week and watched.

 

Bohemian rhapsody 8/10. Really enjoyed it and wanted to sing along.

A star is born 6/10. Pretty cheesy and contrived but the music was good and was surprised that Lady Gaga was a decent actor.

Beautiful boy 8/10. Had me crying. 

Green book 7/10. Pretty good even though I know it deviates from the true story. 

American hangman 7/10. Decent film but didn’t like the ending.

Believe me 6/10. True story but pretty predictable.

 

Now to decide what I’ll watch on the way back.

Bohemian Rhapsody 

 

8/10

 

Very good, but the ending seemed a bit abrupt. As morbid as it sounds, I expected the story to continue onto his death.

 

Rami Malek was outstanding and seemed to get Freddie’s mannerisms spot on.

MacBeth

 

2015 version. Strong visually, atmospheric and Fassbender is terrific, what an actor he is on form. Interesting film

 

10/10

There's apparently talks ongoing about a 2nd movie which takes us from the end of the Wembley concert up till his death in 91.

 

Cashing in on the success of a movie if I ever saw it!

Watched Bohemian Rhapsody again last night and the time flew by. I think my son will test to see if a DVD can wear out as he loves it too. 

 

Out of interest, does anyone know where the Live Aid footage was filmed? Was all of Wembley CGI? Before anyone asks, I am not from Hamilton!

Stage was real. Wembley was CGI.

**** that. It was already pushing over 2 hours which was a numb arse thanks to the Cineworld seats. Other than the time aspect, kinda glad they ended it at live aid, made for a really uplifting triumphant ending which is what it really deserved imo

That’s a fair enough argument. But I personally would’ve sat through longer. I felt they left out a very important stage of the story.

Free Solo

 

The National Geographic film about the climber Alex Honnold attempting to be the first person to climb the 3200ft El Capitan’s in Yosemite without any ropes or safety equipment.

 

Really enjoyed this right up until he actually starts to attempt it, hights have never bothered me but dear god it was almost difficult to watch at times and my hands were actually sweating. Jaw dropping stuff, highly recommend it! 

 

9/10 

 

(UK tv premier on March 3rd) 

Watched this tonight. 

Feck me! Last 15 minutes is a complete nightmare to watch. My fingernails are all but gone! Am away for a lie down!

The same people that built the original stage, built an exact replica for the film. The live aid scene was the first scene from the film to be filmed.

Cheers John. The links previously supplied were a good read. I saw Springsteen at Leeds in July 85 and due to tour commitments he couldnt perform at Live Aid. Instead he left the stage at Wembley for Live aid to use. 

 

A truly stunning scene in the film.

Even in his 60s he still does it. At Leeds he did an afternoon and evening set. By the end of the night I was knackered just watching him!

I was there as well, an absolute marathon of a gig but didn't feel it as the set list was so well selected in terms of song choices.

Busy week at the cinema. Went to see On The Basis Of Sex today. The story of Ruth Ginsburg and her fight for equal rights in the USA. Is it to my ignorance that I had never heard of her and it is a very good film with Ruth making a wee cameo. 8/10

 

The third fact based movie of the week - going to see Captain Marvel tomorrow with my boy and will appreciate the escapism it offers.

The Bleeder

 

For me this film didn't do much. Slow, uninteresting and I've seen better efforts from Liev Schreiber

 

6/10

Captain Marvel. My son loved it. It was pretty good. Tells the story of how Marvel Avengers got their name and introduces another character to the film franchise. 7/10

The Favourite 6/10

 

Less a comedy than I expected. Quite a bit darker. A little art house for my liking too. 

 

But it is funny. And worth it for Olivia Coleman who is outstanding. Good supporting performances too. 

 

Mental.

Not the best film in the series but did like the 90s grunge soundtrack

Beautiful Boy. 7.5/10. Really difficult viewing but very well acted. Something like this should be compulsory in all secondary schools to show the damage drugs do, not just to the user but to those around them. We don't do enough of it in schools IMO.

Watched Se7en last night for the about the 5th time and it never gets old. Great film and brilliant plot twist at the end. 9/10.

 

Also watched the Belko Experiment on Saturday. Was ok but nothing to shout about. 6/10.

England Is Mine

 

Biopic about Morrissey. Not seen a film like it in a while. It is a proper journey, ups and downs and some great writing. Proper star in the making Jack Lowden too, a real talent

 

10/10

Triple frontier 

Ex military robbing a drug cartel.

Defo worth a watch on Netflix.

Good cast with Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Pedro Pascal and Ben Affleck (who was the bomb in phantoms)

Also a good soundtrack.

Escape Room

 

4/10

 

Interesting idea but could’ve been a lot better.

Seemed to wait ages for something to happen. When it did, it was...Well, boring.

 

The whole film just seemed lazy, which was a shame, as it was a good concept.

 

Skeet Ulrich put in a good performance though.
