Winter's Bone   Tough drama set in really small town USA (Ozark Mountains).   Really impressed at the performances in this - a few Oscar nominations at the time.   7.5/10

Cry Macho

 

I have loved the last couple of films with Clint Eastwood that I watched - Grand Torino & the Mule. 

 

Cry Macho is a bit meh. I do enjoy a slow burner but this one failed to ignite for me 5/10

Started watching “Once Upon A Time In America” again. Haven’t watched it in a while and it’s free on Netflix.

 

Its epic. Very long and released in 2 parts. Managed about an hour n half last night and will finish off tonight.

 

Film follows the criminal careers of a group of New York street kids from their early street thefts all the way through prohibition to organised and often very violent gang warfare.

 

It jumps about 3 different time lines as well so can be a difficult watch the first time. It actually deserves to be watched a couple of times straight away. 
 

De Niro, Pesci, Woods, McGovern. Stellar cast.

 

Its over 3 hours long in total but trust me it’s worth it. Immerse yourself in Sergio Leones epic tale of New York gangsters. 10/10

Ghostbusters Afterlife. 

 

It may not be the best film I have seen this year but it is probably the most enjoyable 9/10

Currently watching this. The robot seems to be modelled on Borat.

Ghostbusters afterlife. 4/5

I took my 6 year old son to see this. We both loved it although I think he got scared a couple of times. Definitely one for people like myself who loved the original and eagerly anticipated the original cast making their cameo.

The Accountant 4/5

First time I’ve seen this. Ben Affleck plays a savant accountant/hitman of sorts. 
Decent film with some great sequences.

I saw it on Thursday then took my kids to see it yesterday. Kudos to Odeon Westerhails staff who  dressed up as characters from Ghostbusters. My youngest is 6 and I too was a bit concerned but she coped well. They both loved it. There is enough nostalgia in it for us oldies but with the kids being the lead characters, youngsters will buy into it too.

The Suicide Squad. So much better than the similarly titled mess from a few years ago. A rare example of DC getting the right blend of humour and action.  Also surprised to see that Michael Rooker and Taika Watiti had small parts in it as they are Marvel Universe people. Sylvester Stallone good in it as well, when you work out who he is playing.

Remember it was directed by James Gunn who did the guardians of the galaxy films and is signed on for the next gotg film

The Harder They Fall on Netflix

Classic style over substance.

Great cast. Awful script, awful soundtrack, just a really bad film 

3/10

Dead and Buried. 1981 American horror. Stylish, funny and quite gory wee gem of a movie. Solid 8. 

 

Amazon Prime.

I didn’t mind it too much but the soundtrack was badly done. They were trying to do the Peaky Blinders thing of using music from a different era but didn’t have the subtlety or good song choices. It worked the first time but grated very quickly.

I love a western but thought it was dreadful bordering on comical

Meh. An ok "family movie", I guess. I'm sure kids will like the robotic-Borat and the wee dug.

The Frenchman Returns

Torn

 

Was fortunate to get to see the premiere in the Omni tonight followed by a Q&A with Alex Lowe's wife and 2 sons. Its a National Geographic documentary telling the story of Alex Lowe's life, death and the aftermath. To say it was intense was an understatement, I actually felt it was an intrusion into a family but given that the family made it then it was their choice. Mrs F shed quite a few tears. Scoring this is really difficult but I'll give it a 

 

8/10

 

Here's a trailer as its unlikely to get a huge release

Rocky IV: Rocky vs Drago - The Ultimate Director's Cut    (Apple TV)

so during lockdown Stallone decided to recut the 80’s classic cheesefest and what a job he’s done. 40 minutes of new material replacing the cheese (Paulies robot etc all removed). It’s grittier with Drago more human showing his personality more. Completely different film and just superb. Still has the iconic training montages but done a lot better. Fantastic job

£8.99 to buy but available to rent from 10th Dec.  In 4K etc

Watched ET with my kids on Friday night. Seen it many times but not for a while. What an amazingly produced film which has influenced a lot of other films and TV shows. 9/10

 

Trip to the cinema today to see House of Gucci. At 2h 38m it is a bit long as I found the first half quite slow and drawn out. I havent seen her in a film before (I dont think I have anyway) but Lady Gaga was excellent. 7/10

Cherry starring Tom Holland - based loosely on a true story. Guy joins the army because his girlfriend dumps him only for her to change her mind. What follows takes you from army training to front line conflict followed by PTSD, drug addiction and crime. Excellent watch.

Maple Leaf

Nomadland on Netflix.

 

This film gets high praise, which means I have no taste as I thought it was poor.

 

Frances McDormand plays a fine role as an older woman who decides to spent her life driving around the USA in an old van, but her performance doesn't save this dud, imo.

 

We see her urinating beside the road, defecating loudly into a bucket, doing menial jobs to make ends meet, driving her jalopy in various regions of the country, and .... well that's about it.

 

No better than a 5 from me.
