Probably Waltz with Bashir
Watched it there. We are a most unpleasant species.

Enjoyed it. Creeped me out a fair bit, in a good way. If that makes sense. The subject matter and what it causes Jackman's character to do were well dealt with.
Watched Prisoners in the end. Good film. Didn't think I'd but Gyllenhaal in that sort of role but he did a top job.
It's a perfect role for Gyllenhaal.

Watch it. Even if I didn't like it and there's a good chance I didn't (still can't decide) it as at least different and makes you think and for that alone you should watch it.

Well worth watching, IMHO, esp. if you're a fan of dystopian fiction. Visually striking; the constrained space makes for some original (and claustrophobic) set pieces and action sequences.

As a counter opinion, I thought it was a big bag of bollocks. I love my Sci Fi, and can suspend disbelief with the best of them...but it was so absurd on so many levels that I just couldn't take any of it in without thinking "This is fucking absurd".

P.S. The 5th Element is amazing.

Saw Dr Strange today. Thought it was excellent. Certainly the best Marvel Movie since X-Men 2.
It was a bit like the bastard love child of The Matrix mating with Inception. And a quality cast.

A friends was telling me she really enjoyed it when she saw it the other day, but I'm slightly sceptical that it'll just be another overblown Marvel movie. I was still able to enjoy all the previous MCU titles if I just switch off my brain, but when people say that the latest one is really good I assume that they just mean that it's the same formula as before.

It's a fairly similar origin story - arrogant man gets taken down a peg by a freak accident and becomes a superhero - but it's still good nonetheless. Some good stuff between Cumberbatch and Mads, plus its like nothing the MCU has done before visually which makes it a bit more interesting. It's still worth the ticket price, IMO

Watched the following over the last few weeks

Jason Bourne - Bourne by numbers, but reasonably engaging.

Imperium - Daniel Radcliffe as an FBI agent undercover in a Neo Nazi gang. Just about pulls it off casting wise. Was okay.

Cafe Society - One of Woody Allen's better recent films. Quite enjoyed it

Indignation - Adaptation of the Philip Roth novel of the same name. Thought it was superb. Story of a Jewish guy from New Jersey at an Ohio college in 1951, meeting a complicated girl.

I hope they'd invest more in the story and the development of the character, but I'd bloody well watch it.

Quite intrigued by Dr Strange, might be worth a trip to the ol' cinema....

Worth watching. Fades in the end but very inventive. The night vision goggles scene is proper Korean filum mental.

Good performance by Idris Elba, but the young kid takes it from me. It was utterly harrowing and depressing. Stuck with me for days.

Saw DR Strange at the weekend, decent enough flick. A bit funnier than the last couple of Marvel movies and visually excellent.

Yeah, surprise find on Netflix that, apparently it did not get a wider release as Netflix refused to wait six months before broadcasting which understandably made distributers not bother with it at their theatres.

The bit where they are goading the new kid soldiers to kill the man with the machete is pretty nasty.

Watched 13 Days again. It has been a decade or so since I last saw it. Very strong performances all around. Brought out the tension of those 2 weeks around the Cuban Missile Crisis. 8/10.

I presume you mean Nocturnal Animals. It's a pile of shite. It's like there are two directors and two films that they've randomly stitched together. The overriding art house bollocks doesn't mesh with the story Gyllenhall's book portrays. The heavy violin music that fades away to leave a single character standing in their own, looking thoughtfully into the distance wears hugely thin after a while. I am me, I am not me, who is weak but strong, cut to a bird dying, back to a person staring into a mirror.

Pile of horseshit. It was like an extended version of a perfume advert.
