I saw that the other day and thought that it was aimed at adults a lot more than something like Paddington 2 was.

Great, great film. There's some really top low budget mindfu.ck movies out there.

Next up, The Lives of Others.


One of the greatest movies ever made in my opinion.


Speaking of which I watched The Endless last night.

Good shit. I think a low budget at actually helps with psychological mind fucky type movies as they are not over produced or reliant on effects as much.


Looking forward to catching up with that, Spring by those two lads was a very cool low budget modern horror fairy tale.

It reminded me a tad of Primer - another micro budget sci-fi film that I enjoyed.


Primer is fantastic. Shane Carruth is on a different operational level of thinking to most of us. His 'Upstream Colour' is absolutely bonkers. If you like recent low budget mindfuck films I can heartily recommend:

TimeCrimes (2007) a must watch
Triangle (2009) a must watch
Cube (1997)
The One I love (2014) with Elisabeth Moss
Enemy (obviously being Villeneuve, but not low budget)
On Body and Soul (2017)
Buster's Mal Heart (2016)
Berberian Sound Studio (2012)
Identity (2003)
Time Lapse (2014)
The Endless (2017)


I'd add Infinite Man (2014) to that list - Shortish at 85 mins, Australian indie time-travel film made on a shoestring budget...

Up there alongside Los cronoscrimes, Triangle, Coherence and The One I love... :thumbup:

Finally saw 'Hereditary'. I'm not a a massive fan of horror but it's very well executed and pretty terrifying. Nice to see a film live up to it's hype a bit.

Really? Was there another Red Sparrow released that I don't know about? I'm genuinely dumbfounded - but hey, we all have different tastes and it would be pretty boring if we didn't.

It wasn't bad. I think I gave my score of 6/10 on it some pages back.

A 6/10 seems reasonable. Although it wasn't bad, it wasn't good either, and it had potential to be really good.

Saw The Meg this evening. Entertaining and surprisingly OK, given the type of movie. Not exactly deep (gettit) in terms of subplot and character depth and development, and the jump scares are all very obviously set up and delivered; but I was entertained throughout. :thumbup:

If RR then GRR

3 fairly randomly selected fillums in last week, each a veritable cupped scrotum of their genre. I know ferkawl about flicks, and I’m not in the mood to rummage around in my tugtank or interrogate my synapses pour le mot, er... bon.

Just watch ‘em, roit?

Hereditary
Beast
A Prayer Before Dawn

Played Oceans 8 for the missus the other day after recalling that she mumbled about wanting to see this during it's cinema run. Something which never happened due to a combination to her hectic work schedule and my total apathy.

Anyway I'm extra glad I didn't fork money out for tickets. At least I could read my paper whilst it obediently adhered to it's paint by numbers script.

Btw I am not sexist. I thought much the same of the male cast Oceans films.

Watched "The Killing of A Sacred Deer" over the W/E.

Another seriously f**ked up Lanthimos film which was better than "The Lobster" and "Alps" and on a par with "Dogtooth"

Great performances (especially Barry Keoghan) and outstandiningly shot... 9/10 for me.

Saw a trailer for the Irish Famine Revenge Film called Black 47. Looked decent. Checked out the ratings 6.5/10 on IMDB, 43% on RT and 4/5 from the Irish Times :lol:

I'll still watch it.

Apparently the classic 1980s Kung Fu Cop movie, Kung Fury, is finally getting a sequel, starring Michael Fassbender and Arnold Schwarzenegger alongside the original lead, David Sandberg.

Should be worth watching.

Finally watched Free Fire last night, was highly enjoyable and a re-assuringly realistic portrayal of a fire fight; people picking up non-lethal, but debilitating limb wounds, stopping to re-load, plenty of shots not hitting the intended target, richochets. Ben Wheatley knows how to make a film

Saw the Predator last night in IMAX 3D. I actually enjoyed it a lot. The humour was good, with only a couple of moments that didn't work. The rag-tag band of PTSD sectioned soldiers worked very well. Miller from the Expanse with tourettes was dumb but funny.

Lots of nods to the previous films. Some were a bit cack-handed, but I still enjoyed them.
The big story part of the plot was a bit meh and there's quite obviously a sequel but it didn't really matter to the enjoyment factor of this film. It also wasn't apparent how Olivia Munn's character knew how to handle weapons with such proficiency.
Decent action sequences and gore. :thumbup:

Looks like it might be fun, although I heard that it struggles with budget a bit.

Flew from Miami to Dalls last week and just about crammed in two movies - and Rampage.

Beirut - reasonable paint by numbers, but type of movie I love - so 7/10
Rampage - surprisingly good considering 6/10

As opposed to Digging up the Marrow, completely overrated 6/10

Watched King of Thieves last night. It was alright but with the cast it had I thought it would have been better. Not as good as American Animals.

Bit of a Wickerman feel to it, bit like Darklands. Haven't really seen a good Welsh horror film since Yr Ymadawiad.

Speaking of horror watched The Little Stranger recently, a decent slow burner of a film, very much different to what I was expecting.

A Dark Song was an Irish-Welsh joint I think. It was good for the most part.

Finally got around to watching In Bruges, very good movie.
Farrell is a far better actor than I used to give him credit for.

Great film yes, but I have to say, it was true detective 2 which made me change my opinion on Farrell. You should also watch The Killing of A Sacred Deer, was mentioned a couple of posts above. Good performance again by Farrell and great film.

Deliberately avoided Season 2, but I might give it a watch.
The Killing of the Sacred Deer and The Lobster are two Farrell performances where he's meant to be very good.

Just watched The Guard there too with Brendan Gleeson, it's an excellent comedy/buddy cop movie if anyone is short something to watch.
