    Mile 22

    All the gear no idea - the editing was bad but it had some good car chase scenes and good martial arts. meh/10

    Black Hawk Down
    Going through a period of wanting to rewatch fillums, stuck this on last night. Decent, a bit like a movie version of Call of Duty. 2 and a half hours though

  4. Widows. Steve McQueen strikes again, with a top quality heist movie. It is confined a little bit by the conventions of the genre, because you have to have a lot of set up followed by a big event that you've known was going to happen right from the start. But he's clever with the way he sets it up, with a good story full of twists and turns that keeps you guessing, and a realistic setting that makes you believe in it and care about the characters despite the inevitable plot leaps that you always get in films like this. Really good stuff and Daniel Kaluuya is a terrific villain.

    Currently on Netflix. Heist movie starring Gerard Butler.
    Tries to be Heat and falls short but still a decent attempt. I think the dialogue was a little obvious at times but a good action movie with nods to other nineties films.

  9. I’ve just watched mark kermodes film review on the iplayer and there was a film called Overlord, which I thought was going to be about the allied landing, which it is to an extent, but is also a horror film tagged on.

    Of course the landings were a true life horror story but this film is a different fiction story

    That Hunter Killer is a Submarine fillim.

    Ned? Step in a puddle.

    JJ Abrams is a poor director imho but this film looks immense. All the gear no idea.

    Woman in Black 2
    Very dark shots, so dark I had to turn the brightness up on my telly.
    Started ok, quickly turned to shite. Some decent jump scares, but nowt we haven’t seen a million times before
  15. It’s not JJ directing it

    So it isn't, he's the producer. No wonder it looks good.

    Watched it today. Only been interested in seeing a few films released this year (although I've watched plenty of films from all years this year). Thought it was class. Light humour about serious historical issues that are still prevalent today as displayed at the end.

    Peterloo - 8/10

    Excellent document of a neglected piece of British history. The more things change the more they stay the same.
  19. Outlaw King - 6/10

    Netflix's unofficial "sequel" to Braveheart. Pretty average and forgettable. Pretty slow paced as well, with not a great deal of character development. It's also going be compared to Braveheart which was a big budget Hollywood blockbuster, whereas this is a modest budgeted Netflix film, and to be honest it feels it.

    Probably would have worked better as a series instead of a film.

    Where Eagles Dare

    Putting aside the obvious holes, such as machine guns with endless supplies of ammo, exploding cars etc, still a good yarn


    Broadsword Calling. Danny Boy.
