Saw the new Jumanji film this evening. Loads of fun, and certainly much better than it has any right to be. Big dumb fun, of course, but not in the same ballpark of stupid as the Transformers movies (which I gave up on after the 2nd) or anything like that. Jack Black is hilarious (not a sentence I ever thought I'd type), while the eye candy girl is sizzlingly hot.

Agree with this, and agree that it's a good fun film.

Saw The Florida Project at the flicks today.

Great film if pretty grim at times. All of the leads were brilliant especially Defoe and the little girl.

As an aside I'm really looking forward to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. saw the shorts tonight and looks really good.

Loved In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths.

Martin McDonagh is a very good filmmaker.
His brother is not bad either. Wrote The Guard, Calvary and War on Everyone.

Re-watched Mad Max: Fury Road on Netflix; looks every bit as amazing as I remember at the cinema. Shame it didn’t make a bit more use of Tom Hardy, but guess it’s not really a film for dialogue or serious acting.

Are they both not way too old for this kind've movie?

Jackie was at his best when young in films like (both) Drunken Masters.

Jackie still got the moves. He pulled off a flying double kick in one of the fight scenes.

Brosnan was basically doing a Gerry Adams impression.

I'm from Wellington and spent most of my student days cooped up in a dingy flat in Te Aro. I think it's about me.

Incidentally Waititi announced there is a sequel coming out called We're Wolves.

The Guard is great, I know a lot of people rate Calvary better but it doesn't come close for me. I actually prefer War on Everyone to Calvary (still a good film, just where I place it amongst his three).

Reminded me a lot of Alien Nation, which also became a tv series I seem to remember. I liked Bright a lot more than I expected, woudln't mind a tv version of it. Might be a bit like the Dresden files which was a book series turned short lived tv series.

Dying to see the Disaster Artist. Looks insane.


Yeah, I didn't mind it at all. Low expectations I guess after this thread.

Could have done with a bit of exposition at the beginning.

Sequel already locked in

Yes. Saw it mid week and it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be. Well worth a watch.

The Disaster Artist is a really well made and acted comedy movie.

Martin McDonagh started off writing plays and his play The Lieutenant of Inishmore was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen in the theatre - like a Tarantino version of Father Ted. There is a revival of the play on in London later this year.

I liked it, but have no desire to see a TV series or even a sequel (unless we get a look at, say, dwarves ... one other permutation and I think it'd wear thin.) Don't think it needed an intro either. I quickly assumed this is where fantasy lore ended up over time ... though it sure as hell took them long enough to get out of the swords/bow and arrow technology that seems to exists for 1000s of years in those kind of stories! ;)

Yeah - the exposition was poor. A pre-credits scene of the Battles in the past would have worked better.

I was a bit taken aback on how the Orcs are quite clearly Black. I guess actors like Will Smith get the allegory and were ok with it.

The Elves were cool - rich W@nkers!

Worth a watch. So long as you can take it for the allegory it is and suspend disbelief on everyone being remarkably well read and apt to quoting it.

Dylan Moran also pretty jarring early doors but redeems himself at the end.

'Lady bird' (2017)

A pretty exceptional first time effort at writing and directing by Greta Gerwig. The script is great, really great. And very funny. Saoirse Ronan gives quite a vibrant performance as the lead character who gives us all the typical teenage angst. A lot of critics have said the movie is about growing pains and coming of age, but after thinking about it for some time I think it's also about parenthood. This is a big plus point for the movie as it captures the feelings of Christine's parents (played brillianty by Tracey Letts and Laurie Metcalf). I see alot of similarities to Kenneth Lonnergan's 'Margaret' in this film, which is no bad thing. Gerwig has clearly surrounded herself with talented people and looks to have a pretty big career ahead of her.

7.5/10

'Three billboards outside of Ebbing, Missouri' (2017)

Frances McDormand is one of the greatest actresses of all time. She's great in this. This film is great. It's very, very funny and feels a bit like a Cohen bros film, which is no surprise as McDormand is married to one of them. The only problem I had with it was the sudden change in personalities of a couple of characters in the third act and the fact that it seems a little too heavily oscar baited at times in terms of script / tone. But that said it easily makes the top x movies of the year list.

8/10

'Buster's Mal Heart' (2017)

Massively ambitious film from director Sarah Adina Smith.She desribes it as " a meditation on individual responsibility in a mechanistic universe". It's a modern take on Jonah and the Whale, resembles The Shining, Twin Peaks and Eraserhead all rolled into one, and is a complete mindbender but very, very interesting. Rami Malek is superb as always and I'll be thinking about it for days.

7/10

'The Killing of a sacred Deer' (2017)

Tempted to call this a masterpiece. It's absurd,brilliant, funny, sad, completely intriguing and very well written. Lanthimos is a complete maverick.

9/10

'The Hero' (2017)

This isn't a flawless film. There are mis-steps and the script was foggy in places but Sam Elliott is absolutely amazing as the lead - a washed up actor with baggage who needs to reconcile a few things sharpish. Totally recommend this film if you are tempted to wander off the beaten track .

7/10

'Most beautiful Island' (2017)

Very impressive debut from Spanish writer / director Ana Asensio who also stars. It's a tense psycyhological thriller with some surreal elements. Right up my street. One of the films of the year. Probably give it 7.5/10 but maybe a bit more

'Mother' (2017)

A film like 'Mother!' is bound to divide audiences, especially with a third act so off the wall as this. But Aronofsky deserves credit for convincing major studios to make films that are not your typical straight up drama / horror / thrillers.

SPOIELRS:

What is especially great about the movie is that there is a huge amount of ambiguity into the films message, yet it remains extremely intriguing. That's the real accomplishment of a piece of work like this. There are biblical themes, nods to the difficulties of relationships / parenthood and messages / fore-warnings of human behaviour destroying the planet. Which one the audience chooses to go with is completely up to them

I'm not sure 'Mother!' is quite as good as Requiem or The Fountain, but then those two are absolutely superb films, Aronofsky is one of the true great modern film-makers

8/10

Saw Molly's Game yesterday.

Typical Aaron Sorkin talkathon and too long at 2 hr 20 mins so it may have dragged a bit if not for the lovely Jessica Chastain who dominated and carried the film.

I think the Mech Suit combat scene is probably the best fight scene in modern cinema*

They are all good - the Barn one is the most realistic (i.e. complete exhaustion and technique out the window).

Yep, Killing of a Sacred Deer and Three Billboards are both brilliant. I've been a huge Frances McDormand fan ever since Blood Simple.

I prefer the apart fight scene in the Bourne Identity or the fight scene where Bourne kills the Moroccan/North African agent in the Bourne Ultimatum.

Agree about the Duellists though. Best sword/weapon fight scenes I can think of.

Have been working from home the ast couple of days. Have managed to watch Atomic Blonde and Blade Runner 2049. Both pretty entertaining. 6/10 for the former and 7/10 for the latter.

Will try and get through It, Dunkirk and Wind River tonight and tomorrow.

Just finished Wind River. 8/10. Surprisingly powerful and resonant with me. Probably as I have a daughter.

When not in comicbook films I find Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen very good. I quite like contemporary Westerns.

Yep, Killing of a Sacred Deer and Three Billboards are both brilliant. I've been a huge Frances McDormand fan ever since Blood Simple.


She's amazing. If you can find it, watch the HBO mini-series 'Olive Kitteridge'. Her and Richard Jenkins are on top form and even Bill Murray appears.

Is it just me or does the Darkest Hour look shite? Gary Oldman puts on three inches of prosthetics and ACTS to the back of the room.
