Went to see ‘Yesterday’ today. Was really looking forward to it, as the story was something just a little bit different. It was about a guy who was failing as a musician, until something happens and suddenly nobody has heard of the Beatles. He then starts to sing their songs and make out they are his work.It started off alright, but found myself halfway through praying it would just end (didn’t help that Ed Sheehan was in it) It was meant to be a bit of comedy too, think I laughed twice.

 

5/10

Went to see this on Monday.

Thought it started well but went flat.

Thought Kinnaman was good in it to be fair.

Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

 

Another OK one. Seemed vaguely familiar - unsure if it was a rip off of a previous film. Thought it was caught between trying to be a horror and trying to tell a good drama story. 6/10

IT CHAPTER 2

 

Not as good as the first chapter but that was always a hard ask.

Couple of jump scares and some funny lines but maybe a bit too long.

 

7/10

IT Chapter 2. Too long and for me, too predictable. A lot of scenes seemed repetitive. 6/10

Avengers Endgame

 

Loved bits of it but felt it got weighed down by storylines and characters, like Infinity War, which I gave the benefit of the doubt (I'm no superhero fan and I appreciated it visually) but I do not believe they handled them well in this case. Still, when it hits form and when the big scenes arrive, wow. And I liked Robert Downey Jr in it, incredible actor in everything

 

7/10

I enjoyed Ad Astra but it was very slow paced, and a bit over-reliant on voiceovers. Did like the reference to Kalamazoo though :ninja:

Bohemian Rhapsody.

 

Thought it was rotten tbh. Never been a huge Queen fan after my best mate played them to death during our high school years. Found the crowd scenes really offputting/annoying...almost as much as Freddie's teeth! 

 

5. And that's being generous.

My god that was awful.

Do not waste your time watching this crap.

A horror movie that is arty pish.

Boring story that's been done before (wickerman)

Would rather watch the remake of Wickerman than this.

Even the gore looks terrible.

Hotel Mumbai.

 

Enjoyed it although a horrible tragedy that doesn't get the same recognition as others as it didn't happen in the west.

I found it to be an interesting (if disturbing) watch. If completely accurate, the timescale for the forces to arrive was a surprise! 

 

Completely agree about the recognition comment. Amazing that the hotel became fully restored in such a short time.

Watched it last night. Some extremely tense moments!

 

How much poetic licence was used is anyones guess.

Lego Movie Second Part

 

Funny funny film, just like the first. Some of the comedy is risky and the music scores are excellent. Not quite as good as the first for me but that's a tough benchmark, people that liked the first one will enjoy it

" Judy" .  This was pretty good tracing her last few months before dying at 47.  Renee Zwellwegger really caught the essence of her but the film had a lot of factual errors that die hard fans would know where inaccurate but as i said it caught the essence of this incredible talent. 7/10

Judy

 

As usual with BBC Films, this film is a product and a strong and well made one. Excellent from start to finish, full of great acting, infact I would say Zelleweger's performance is one of the strongest I've anywhere. She is unhinged, committed and giving it her all every scene. Highly recommended. I can forgive it the factual errors as at the end of the day it is a film and they are meant to be entertaining, this certainly is

 

10/10

Not being aware of much of her life story, I didnt pick up on any inaccuracies that others may have. This probably made Judy more of an enjoyable film as I wasnt picking up on any faults. 

 

Not a great fan of Zellweger but there was an interview with her on the Simo Mayo show on 5live yesterday and she came over really well.

I am a fan. Lol.  Yeah there were loads of inaccuracies.. Examples being.  She met her last husband Mickey Deans in 1965 as he dealt her drugs and in the film they apparently met at a party in 1968. It glamorised their relationship. He as well as most of the men in her life saw her as a meal ticket for them.   She wasn't singing for her supper as such. In 1968 she played to over 150,000 at an open air concert .  Also she didn't sing " By myself " at The Talk of the town concerts (minor issue) She didn't fall out with Deans either .  He was the one who found her dead in the bathroom  in June 22nd 1969.   Also she her appearances at The Talk of the town, whilst chaotic where generally well reserved. Her actual final live concerts were in March 1969 in Denmark and not Talk of the town.  Also her relationship with her  kids was fictionalised as such.  She left them in the US but wasn't that much interested in   them as most addicts are.  However it certainly got to the heart of who she was. A warm , humorous . sensitive and compassionate woman who was terribly abused all her life.  They also got over her eternal optimism which managed to get her through her adversities. I honestly think she was just worn out and thats why she died so young.
