Finally found a film worse than fight valley and goes by the name of.....

SLEIGHT

An absolute bag of shit film about a young lad, street magic, drug dealing & "super powers."
Sounds good doesn't it? i thought so but in reality it's horrible, don't waste your time.


Guardians of the galaxy vol 2


I really cant think of a better marvel film that's been released. An absolute gem of a film, definately give this one a watch

Colossal

Apparently this came out last year, but it completely passed me by. Never saw it advertised or even mentioned online. But it's good enough that I plan to buy it now.

It's a giant monter movie starring Anne Hathaway. Can't really say much without spoiling it, but she plays an alcoholic trying to sort her life out. At the same time a giant monster attacks Seoul in Korea. And those two things come together in a surprising way. It's the most emotional giant monster movie I can think of, because the mass destruction plays on a very personal level. You don't see a lot of it, but you feel it happening. It's just a cool idea overall.

I thoroughly recommend it.

Swiss Army Man

Really odd film.  Paul Dano is stranded on an island, about to end it all when he notices someone wash up on the beach.  That someone happens to already be Daniel Radclifee, already dead, but Dano's character notices the corpse seems to be breaking wind.  A lot.  So he rides him across the sea like a flatulence-powered human jet ski.

Yes, really.

Anyway, what follows is Dano's gradual descent into insanity as he imagines the gradually decomposing corpse talking back to him and becoming his friend, using his corpse as a multi-function tool (hence the film's title).  It gets weirder through to the end, where it suddenly just feels really, really creepy.  Well acted film, and Radcliffe is about as far from Harry Potter as you can ever get, but as the credits rolled I'm still not sure what the film was trying to be.

Prometheus

I think singing a chorus is a due:

FUCK THIS MOVIE
FUCK THIS MOVIE
FUCK THIS MOVIE
FUCK IT WITH SHIT

The incompetence this movie starts with spreads its tentacles to the rest of the movie, and it is aggravating shit.
The only film I saw with a Xenomorph that I outright hate.

Alien: Covenant

Forgettable, not bad, better than Alien: Resurrection.


Life

It had potential to be a good new successor to the original Alien movie, it has the right components, but somewhere in the execution it fell short, I'm not sure where, but it left me bored.

I know, I saw up to that part.

John Wick Chapter Two

No, it wasn't quite as strong as the first, largely because the titular character's motivations weren't quite as relatable here, but it was still a superior action flick, and the final twenty minutes was a non-stop assault on the senses, in a very good way.

Kingsman The Golden Circle

What a ridiculously entertaining film.  It follows up a short time after the end of the first film, and it doesn't take long for shit to really hit the fan.  What follows is hilarious, heartbreaking and sometimes spectacularly imaginative. The only criticism I'd have is that the action scenes seem to have a very odd motion blur effect added to them; it serves to hide the cut from actor to stunt-performer well, but it also makes it difficult to follow exactly what is happening at times.

It's a minor gripe about what is a clear stylistic choice, and doesn't stop me recommending the film.

Spiderman Homecoming, I loved this film so much it did so much right, and strangely was one of the only superhero films that surprised me throughout.

Given how far fetched much of the film is the explanation for his return is actually pretty plausible in-universe.

I'm pretty sure wearing glasses is the same as wearing kevlar.

saw Split, didn't go in with the highest expectations, but I really enjoyed it. McAvoy is great in it, especially that part of him that plays the little kid, I thought that was great and funny.

As in all of Shyaramalamadingdong's movies, there's the obligatory supernatural thing, but I didn't mind.

Really loved that neat little touch at the very end of the movie as well.
I enjoyed Split, but some parts of it were really awkward. Like how when the Beast appears, he has to go really far away from where his victims are locked up, and then run all the way back there, for no reason except tension.

Thor Ragnarok

Utterly bonkers, but utterly brilliant. I'd need a second viewing to confirm, but I think this may well be the best film to come out of Marvel studios, full stop. It's still not perfect,

OK I think Ill need to see Thor I completely forgot about that.

On another note did anyone watch Legion the series. I thought it was amazing. Best super hero show on tv byb a longshot, although I question if it really qualifies as a super hero show considering powers seem to be the least of the shows concern.

Thor 3 dropped the ball a bit for me. It was a hair away from being a full on comedy and the jokes really hampered some of the cool moments. Things that really should have been a big deal didn't feel like a big deal because the tone of the film was so irreverent. It's a funny film, but it could have been better if it was just a little more serious.

Life

Astronauts discover a hitherto unknown single cell Martian lifeform that grows far more quickly than expected. This is what happens when you try to make a PG-13 horror movie. When it opts for tense, claustrophopic moments it works well but the Alien itself is simply not scary at all, which isn't helped because its called Calvin. The ending seems to be trying its hardest to be anti-Hollywood but just falls flat. Good cast, yes, but not really worth more than a cursory glance.

Murder on the Orient Express

The new one, starring Kenneth Branagh as Poirot. If you've encountered the story before in any one of its numerous previous forms this won't necessarily surprise you in any way, but it's got a great cast, is very well acted and looks gorgeous.

I watched that Assassin's Creed film. It's definitely an Assassin's Creed film. Aside from the weird Animus it's possibly the most slavishly accurate videogame adaptation I've seen. Problem is the Assassin's Creed story was written for a game, not a film. The Templars trying to find the Apple using regression through genetic memory is a great set up for a bunch of missions in a game, but in a film it's just a set up for a bunch of action scenes that have little meaning because they really rush through the explanation of what the Apple is, who the different factions are, and why they want it.

I get the feeling that without any prior knowledge of the games it would be a very confusing film.

I agree - really solid.

It was intriguing, but I thought it was spinning its wheels a little in the middle few episodes. Stuff was happening but nothing was really progressing, though they did a wonderful job visualising all the powers in unique ways. You could understand how terrifying it would have felt to be trapped in David's situation, the malice was tangible.

Justice League


it's a step down from Wonder Woman, but it's a step up from the crap before it. It was enjoyable, not great or fantastic, not Marvel level of good, but I liked it.

Also, the second after credits scene actually got me really hyped up for what's next, and that might be a first.

I sat through the X-Men movies lately, and included Deadpool in this list. I think that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is discarded from the series continuity, it's been buried and ignored when it comes to referencing it in sequels and other follow ups.
