Always thought it was Korean, dunno why??‍♂️

 

Loved The Raid film and every time I tried to find a copy of the 2nd one there was none, had completely forgotabout  it. Just checked my Cinema app and it’s there, that’s getting watched in the next couple of days :thumb:

 

It turns the violence up to 11!
(example fight scene in spoiler)

Yaaas, loved the first one. It just never stops from the moment they enter the building. Tonight’s viewing sorted ?

The prison fight scene is utterly ridiculous. Unrelenting violence.

Fisherman's Friends - a good, harmless, occasionally amusing film with one particular lump-in-the-throat moment.

I havent read the book nor seen the previous film and to be honest, didnt have a clue what the film was about. Horror movies arent my No 1 choice but this one was pretty decent. To be honest I am a big jessie and will jump at anything (to the amusement of other cinema goers) 

 

John Lithgow was good in it and I will probably read the book to see how it differs. 6/10

Watched another Korean film last night...The Wailing.

 

it received 5 star reviews, named as one of the best recent horrors and has a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes etc.

 

However, I found it quite disappointing...it wasn’t scary in any way whatsoever, the acting was fine, the plot fairly straightforward ...but overall I found it decidedly average (in places it was more like a comedy in all honesty).

Watched “wild rose” last night which is basically about an ex con who aspires to be a country western singer all the while being a jakie... 7/10

Finally got round to watching Us last night. I quite enjoyed it - slasher more than a horror. Good story with a few humorous moments but the ending was a wee bit of a disappointment. Despite the ending would still give it 7/10

Shazam. A hoot of a movie. For those who take Marvel/DC seriously then this may not be for you. Silly at times, scary for younger ones at times and more than a few funny moments. 7/10

The Highwaymen, liked it.

I dug out the old Bonnie and Clyde with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunnaway. Quite dated now.

 

Just finished reading the Railwayman by Eric Lomax. Great read. What the prisoners of war were put through and put themselves through is horrendous.

Downloaded the movie for the flight home. Skipped to the end and caught him calling his for "a Fraud and a Liar".

This never happened, so a bit annoyed before I even start it.

The Mule.  I'm a massive Eastwood fan so probably biased but solid 8/10.

 

Wild Rose. A bit cliched but enjoyed it all the same and the lead was a good chanter. 7/10.

Been watching Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises with my son. Forgot how good they were. Heath Ledger as the Joker is amazing. My son though he was totally nuts. 

 

Three great movies that are ageing well. 8/10, 9/10 and 8/10

I love these calm little moments before the storm..... 

 

Excellent film and Oldman is fantastic

Red Joan 6/10

 

True story of post war British spy helping give Soviets nuclear secrets to help them develop the bomb. 

 

Caught in her 80s. 

 

Gets caught betwix and between the personal story, the political situation of the time and some confused romantic relationships. It was okay. Unremarkable film of a remarkable story.

The Sisters Brothers. Interesting western rather oddly directed by a French director. John C Reilly is excellent as ever as is Joaquin Phoenix. My only big complaint is the the sound mix on it is that very modern ultra realistic meaning you spend a lot of the film straining to hear dialogue. 

 

7/10

The Dirt, a film about Motley Crue. I was never into the hair metal scene generally but Dr Feelgood is one of my go-to albums, they're kind of a guilty pleasure.

 

The film itself wasn't that well done, it was a bit cheesy and felt cartoony, but me and the mrs both really enjoyed it. I'd give it 8/10 for being pretty entertaining with some epic tunes, 6/10 for the quality of film, so overall

7/10

Wild Rose. Scottish based film about a lassie who dreams of being a Country singer in the USA. Film starts with her being released from prison and returning to her mums house as her mum was looking after her two kids. 

I found at hard to root for the  main character as she seemed so selfish. 

Not a great film but not the worst either 5/10

Fighting With My Family 6.5/7 outta 10

 

Good film few changes to the actual story in order to simply relationships for non wrestling fans but all in all a good watch and Thea Trinidad does a virtually pitch perfect impersonation of AJ Lee...Florence Pugh is brilliant as Saraya and Stephen Merchant whilst taking some liberties has done justice to Saraya’s story.

The Frenchman Returns

Mamma Mia 2

 

3/10

 

Trying to get in the wife's "good books" (didn't work). It would have been a solitary point but I absolutely loved Kisses of Fire by Panos Mouzourakis and have been playing it on repeat since Saturday. I promise that I will do a rendition at Hampden on the 25th when we win.

Watched Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

 

Was ok and Zac Efron is good but the lack of kills was a definite miss. A bit like My Friend Dahmer. Ultimately, that's what we want to see! ?

Long Shot. Some very funny moments but oh so predictable. 6/10

Curse of Llorona

 

Another horror set in the Conjuring universe.

Vengeful spirit in the form of a weeping woman who drowns children.

Never found these films all that scary to be honest but if you like the rest of them you will enjoy this.

 

6/10

 

If you looking for a good horror try the Grudge of the original Ring (Japanese or remake)

Disagree regarding the remakes...the American remakes of Ringu are absolutely terrible, whilst the originals are awesome (Ringu, Ringu 2 & Ringu 0).

 

Same goes for The Grudge...in my opinion.

Fair point.

I had seen the American ones first but would agree the Japanese ones build the tension so much better.

Hated the noise the Grudge made.

Brawl in cell block 99 - absolutely nuts.

Vince Vaughn basically fights and kills an entire prison - thought it was brilliant.

 

Very violent in parts but almost cartoonish.

Cafe Society

 

Woody Allen's 2016 film

 

I am a fan of Woody Allen and the films he makes and I actually think this is my favourite of his efforts (although not seen all of them). A classy and upbeat film with some terrific acting (Eisenberg is excellent)

 

10/10

I hate him out of jealousy for the fact he got to pork Jennifer Anniston. Don’t think he’s a particularly good actor, but Dragged across Concrete was one of his better ones.

I don't like him as a man or an actor. One of the few I don't have time for

Red Joan. Fell asleep about 10 minutes into it, caught the end of it. Not fair to try and give it a rating.
