It was too long and the script wasn't great. Plus Jackman seemed out of his depth...
While I thought Gyllenhaal stole the show in it, I thought Jackman was pretty good.
I thought Prisoners was really good.
Agree, only watched it recently and I thought it was brilliant.
Saw it in the cinema when it came out and it was heavy enough. The closing scene, while a bit cliched, was brilliant.

Following your recommendation it is on my "to watch" list...

Holy Moly, best thriller I've seen in a long time.
:thumbup: Yes! Something positive!

The sequel is out soon, pray to whatever deity is listening that it's a worthy continuance.
I'm going to go all Floppykid and KidA on this one - Sicario is hugely overrated.

Good film, but not the masterpiece it's claimed to be.
+1

The only great Villeneuve film is Incendies...

Arrival, Sicario and Enemy were decent.
Prisoners was claptrap and Blade Runner was beautiful but dull.
Incendies is clearly his best but the ones you mention are all up there. Prisoners = claptrap???? You have high standards. If anybody hasn't seen 'Polytechnique' I'd urge them to. Next to 'Elephant' it's one of the most realistic, terrifying portrayals of school shootings I've seen.
So I've gone on a Villeneve binge recently after watching Bladerunner and seeing Incendies mentioned here. That film was a masterpiece. Just brilliant.

Saw Sicario also which was good but not on the level of Incendies. Great ending though, bleak as fudge.

Also rewatched arrival which I also really enjoyed the second time round.

Will check out Polytechnique next.

Finally saw Infinity War. Pretty good. Didn't enjoy it as much as Thor: Ragnarok or Captain America: Civil War which are my two favorites of the MCU. Even though they did a good job piecing it together there is just too much going on to really get into it.

Watched You Were Never Really Here last night.

Phew, brilliant thriller. I recommend it to everyone.
Pheonix is brilliant, the cinematography is brilliant, soundtrack is brilliant etc. etc. you get the idea.

Like all my favourite thriller movies its utterly vicious in pace/plot.

Gonna have to watch Ramsay's back catalog now.

I'm not sure how the trailer makes it look, but it'snot a popcorn kind've action movie.
Very much wears its Taxi Driver inspiration on its sleeve.

They did a pretty good job of it though. I agree it's not a perfect movie but with all of the moving parts and characters it could have been a giant mess.

Criterion is great for samurai movies and film noir in particular.

Saw Solo today

A cracking adventure and plenty of Easter Eggs for Star Wars fans.

Clever twisty story that works in a key element of the Prequels and other cannon like The Clone Wars and Rebels.

Worth the price of entry to see the Kessel Run alone.

One of the better horror/thrillers I've seen recently. Some surprisingly poignant moment.

I watched 'Lean on Pete' expecting it to be a sentimental piece of claptrap. I was wrong. It's beautiful. And it also seemed to produce some sort of weird Onion extract odour from my television right into my face.

Saw the first one this week. Didn’t think I’d ever say this about a Superhero movie, but it could’ve done without taking the piss out of itself a lot less - it got tiresome very quickly!

Still, it had the odd good line, eg: “I’m going to do to you what Limp Bizkit did to music in the late ‘90s!’

It’s great fun, Alden Ehrenreich is very well cast as Solo; every bit as good as he was in Hail Caesar.

Finally watched Whiplash (I'm really bad with "must see" films.) and it was brilliant.
Just about as tense as I've been watching a movie, JK Simmons just brings a crazy tension to every scene he's in.
One of the best movies I've seen.


Gave Hateful 8 a watch too finally, I just genuinely was left wondering what the point of the movie was.
Just an indulgent, pointless mess.

Yeah, that's the next big one I'll have to watch.

The more trailers for Sicario 2 I see the more hacky and cynical it looks, really think it'll be a disappointment.

I think most people hate Jazz :lol: , I also hate drum solos, but this film made me love both for its run time.

Seen a couple of decent movies at the Sydney Film Festival:

Blood of Wolves is a Japanese gangster film. Real hard boiled violence, grizzled cop with new graduate sidekick, couple of nice plot twists and did I mention the violence. Some of it is a little over the top and there is a bit of a fascination with pig sh1t.

Beirut is a US movie set in Beirut in the early 80s, involving to no-one's surprise kidnapping and negotiating the labyrinthine factional struggles involving the various Lebanese groups, Palestinians, the Israelis and factions within the US government. It doesn't get into a lot of detail on that though, just enough for the plot. It'll probably get a wider release given its stars. Fairly suspenseful, some nice action albeit with a dollop of the clichés. Screenwriter handled the first four Bourne movies.

Hereditary - absolute Pish.

Nearly fell asleep in the first half and then it kind of stumbled to a halt.

A couple of good ideas but it seemed that it was trying to be two films at once. The trailer was much better.

Three new horror trailers released this week:
A Suspiria remake that looks very handsome
A Halloween sequel, ignores the intervening sequels, could be interesting.
The Little Stranger with creepy English people being creepy in a big creepy house. All ambiguuuous and that.

Finally saw The Death of Stalin.
A very well made, sharp black comedy that was well acted.

Perhaps I had it too built up in my head though as it didn't blow me away in the way I'd hoped.
