I largely agree with you Sora. I rather enjoyed but, but it did do some things that frustrated me upon reflection.

I saw The Last Jedi at the start of the week.  

Honestly thought it was a bit of a mixed bag, there were bits I loved, bits I didn't, some really, really jarring plot-induced-stupidity and a couple of cool touches.  I'd like to see it again, because I went in having heard it was amazing, and I was frankly a bit underwhelmed.  A second viewing would likely help me judge the film in its own right rather than judging it against my perhaps unfairly inflated expectations.

The Punisher

Yes, it's a TV show, not a movie but it was easily the best Netflix Marvel offering since Daredevil season one.  It manages to avoid the mid-season sag of the other shows as well, and actually manages to make you root for Frank Castle despite it being made abundantly clear he's functionally completely broken as a human being.  It's also more restrained with the violence than you might imagine, given that it's The Punisher's thing.  Of course, when there is violence it's both very graphic and eye-poppingly brutal.  Definitely not one for the kids!

It helps that it's really well written, too.  The narrative is very strong throughout, unlike Iron Fist, which felt like it was being made up as it went along, The Punisher manages to juggle multiple threads with ease all whilst telling a complex and cohesive story and pulls them together for a very satisfying conclusion.

Fair to say I liked it a lot.

Downsizing

For once, a trailer doesn't give the whole film away. Hurray! The film sucks though. Boo!

From the trailer, this looks like a breezy comedy about what happens when you're five inches tall. In reality, it's a drama that just happens to feature a sub-story about shrinking down. There are several problems with the film. Firstly, it barely uses most of the cast. Matt Damon stars, sure, but Kristen Wiig's character, his on-screen wife, pulls a douche move and calls him when he's been shrunk down to tell him she chickened out and couldn't go through with it, despite having many, many opportunities to do so prior to it. After that, the film jumps forward a year, and they're divorced. She's in the film for twenty minutes. Neil Patrick Harris and Laura Dern? They get one scene and maybe two minutes on screen. Jason Sudeikis? Two scenes and three minutes. Then they're never seen again.

Second problem? Aside from a couple of minor visual gags, being small barely matters for the second half of the film. I can't be bothered to write any more, suffice to say the film was a waste of an intersting concept and a cast that are better than this tripe.

That's a shame, I thought it looked alright from the trailer. Super interesting concept.

Yes, it was a shame.  The premise is interesting but the film seem muddled in what it was trying to do within the confines of the narrative, and it has the prestige of being the worst film I've paid to see in the last 12 months.

Oh well.

*****

King Arthur Legend of the Sword

This was the infamous Guy Ritchie bomb that featured a David Beckham cameo.  It's an odd beast, but I quite enjoyed it, truth be told.  In some ways, its perhaps best not to think of it as a retelling of the Arthurian legend, but more as a roguish cockney heist movie with the trump card being a magical sword.

The dialogue was a mixed bag, with some nice quick interplay in some scenes and some plodding exposition in others and some of the accents were typically hilariously awful, but it definitely felt like a Guy Ritchie film and there was enough spectacle to keep it entertaining, even if Eric Bana exudes more charisma in his two minutes on screen than poor Charlie Hunnam can muster in almost two hours.

Whew, the whole place has been inactive for a little over a month.
Been watching MCU movies recently, and I still hate Thor the Dark World.

Loved Marvel Infinity War. Thought Balck Panther was horribly overrated it was decent and I love Michael B Jordan.

Deadpool 2 was pretty fun, I really enjoyed it.Can't really pick which was is the best, so at least it's as fun as the first one.
