Re: Movie review thread...



  • Ready Player One, enjoyed it. Tons of 80s etc pop culture references and Easter eggs. Not a particularly deep movie, thought the villain (Krennic from R1) was rather bland.
    A lot of fun but definitely not one of Speilbergs best
    3.5 special keys out of 5 pop culture references



  • The first couple of Resident Evil flicks were decent and so was Silent Hill.

    @mn5 it has made some decent coin at the box office, I'd say the vast majority of that is down to The Rock, pretty much the most marketable face on the planet right now.

    I actually enjoyed it for what it was, a bit of fun

    Agreed, I enjoyed it more than Jurassic World 2 - it was stupid and knew it was stupid.

    @MN5 According to Box Office Mojo it cost $120m and made over $400m. Not close to JW2 business but not bad for a movie based solely on The Rock's charisma.

    ... and "kids from the 80s who used to play Rampage-the-game" 's nostalgia
    I watched it myself on the weekend, expecting... welll, a movie starring the Rock, with the plot being this:

    I wasn't disappointed... shit/zero plot, big monsters, reasonable budget, The Rock... it's exactly what it says on the tin.

    Amazing that studios are so devoid of ideas that they based an entire film on a video game from my childhood. I'm surprised that they haven't made a Gauntlet movie yet

    You should probably be a Movie Exec. Gauntlet is only a matter of time.
    Midnight Resistance?
    Commando & Pirates! - pretty much already done.
    Defender of the Crown - likewise.
    The fact that they've done Rampage, opens up the more bizarre shit though - Bubble Bobble, Boulder Dash.
    Syndicate - now that's a fucking movie.

  • @canefan this would be a great movie...

    Ok.......of about 50 million posts this is your best one. I genuinely laughed more than I should ( maybe too much pinot? I've been left alone for the night )

    We were spoilt in the late 70s/early 80s. Every sci fi scene looked fucken cheap and nasty compared to Star Wars.

    Case in point....



  • @mn5 But, but, it had Dolby stereo. How can it be bad?



  • Continuing in the theme of complicated messy families, I saw this the other night. The kids are the real stars of it , they were great . Rosamund Pike was not as hot as in Reacher and the YouTube video of the nervous breakdown was hilarious.

  • In Darkness - Natalie Dormer and EMily Ratajkowski

    Dormer plays a blind musician who hears her upstairs neighbour killed, but doesnt tell the police what she heard.

    3 morgue trout pouts out of 5 hard acting to be blind moments (would be 2.5, but Dormer, as is customary, gets the girls out)

    Some of her finest work was when she asked her shirt lifter hubby if he'd like to fuck her from behind and pretend she was a boy in GOT.

    I'm still devastated that fucken bitch Cercei killed her.



  • Ocean's Eight.

    Was super disappointed by this. Wasted a great cast with a dull caper, no laughs or tension or true villains which was what made the other Ocean films worth watching. And Danny's 'death' added precisely nothing to the plot.

    Two diamond necklaces out of five Met Galas.



  • Black Panther.

    Another strong outing by Marvel. Pretty good story line, very Shakespearean. Visually good as usual, the action was excellent. 4 illegitimate heirs to the throne vs 5 heart shaped herb thingies



  • Traffik

    Decentish thriller involving a bikie gang who harass a couple in the wilderness for a dirty weekend. Usual cliches and very predictable 'twist' but overall ok I guess. ( it also has a charming British villain and ubiquitous dickhead mate of the main character to try and make things interesting )

    The main chick was obviously extremely cold around the chest region during filming which helps my rating.

    2.75 SS 69s out of 5 Harleys.

    Agree it was meh , Sandra Bullocks had a lot of work done and her resemblance to Michael Jackson is very distracting.



  • Siberia
    John Wick for your missus

    I Am Wrath
    Better, but Travolta's plastic surgery is very distracting. On his way to Rourkesville

    I'm assuming Liam Neesons email was down when they sent out the script for I am Wrath so they got JT instead.

    Retired special ops type guy has to use his skills one more time and save the day.....pretty original premise that....
