"Unfriended" - Dark Web, in cinemas now, really good, really clever, recommended despite it's short running time of 91 minutes.

 I wish more films were that length, most films I see these days 80% are overly long, 90 mins used to be standard.

Mark Kermode gave it a mention on his Secrets of Cinema show on the horror genre last night on BBC4.

"John Wick : Chapter Two" ... if you like a movie with a high body count this one's for you ... :thumbsup:

 

Just watched both films again, and I was wondering when Chapter 3 is coming out.  After stealing his car, killing his dog and blowing up his house, I reckon they're going to trash his vinyl collection next.

My eldest lad brought a Bluray copy of Avengers Infinity War round on Monday night.  I would recommend watching the previous Avenger movies and the latest Thor instalment (Ragnorak) beforehand, along with Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange.  Infinity War brings a lot of the major Marvel superheroes together and is action all the way.  It seems like the culmination of all the previous mainstream Marvel films in one ultimate showdown with the villain of the piece, Thanos.  The ending is a bit of a shocker, and will certainly have fans of the genre guessing on how they're going to follow it up.  A very enjoyable two and a half hours.

Was hoping to come here tonight to add "Hurricane" to the list ..... 

 

Unfortunately I cannot bring myself to recommend it , having just watched it I believe it sits very comfortably alongside "Dunkirk" in the  'eagerly awaited but dreadfully disappointing' category  ....  :(

 

It is a piece of our history that needed bringing to the attention of a wider audience but the few good performances were outweighed by some dreadfully wooden ones , very poor CGI air-combat sequences and a myriad of inaccuracies and ill-placed cliches . 

 

 ( A Union Flag flying upside down in 'the' Victory parade being the biggest howler ... :facepalm: )

 

Could have been a great and fitting tribute to the crews of 303 Squadron ... but it's not ... :(

Amazing how this compares with this review:

 

A must for WWII history lovers

druzdzel22 August 2018
I have just watched this movie and loved it. I am familiar with the history of the Kosciuszko Squadron (a.k.a.Squadron 303) and the movie is faithful to it. I was watching it through my Polish eyes and I have not seen anything that would smell like Hollywood and that would be absurd in terms of the behavior or words spoken by the Poles in the movie. Good job on reflecting the Polish spirit of the fighters. Highly recommended!

Amazing how you happened to pick that one review to post rather than all of them , but I guess that would show that I'm not alone in slating it.

 

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7515456/reviews

 

All I can suggest is you watch it for yourself and give us your opinion afterwards ... :yes:

 

( But don't say I didn't warn you if you reach a similar conclusion to myself )

 

 

It beat the hell out of watching Strictly or some footie match though I must admit ... :thumbsup:

Chose something a little different this evening , plucked up the courage to revisit a movie that left me mildly traumatised when I first watched it nigh on 50 years ago ... I admit I got a bit misty-eyed at times but none of the howling that echoed round the Odeon way back then ... :sweatingbullets:

Hard to believe that was first released in 1942.  Here's Walt explaining the Multiplane camera.....

Molly's Game, based on the true story of Molly Bloom, who hosted high stakes poker games after her dreams of becoming an Olympic skier were dashed.  Everything was fine until the Russian Mob got involved and she was paid a visit by the FBI.  Jessica Chastain in the title role with Idris Elba as her defence lawyer.....

Watched "The Post" last night, with Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.  Tells how The Washington Post changed from being a local newspaper to the major national it is today, alongside the New York Times.  The freedom of the press comes to the fore as the Nixon administration try to suppress the publishing of papers documenting decades of American involvement in Vietnam.  Interesting stuff.

I've seen Molly's Game and The Post recently too. Both great films.

 

I'd like to know the identity of player X in Molly's Game - it must be a famous movie star.

 

Meryl Street is superb in The Post

I watched Journey man with Paddy Considine. It was a good film, more so if you are in to boxing.

The Siege of Jadotville, about a company of 157 Irish soldiers acting as U.N. Peacekeepers in The Congo.  They're up against 3000 Congolese soldiers led by French and Belgian mercenaries hired by the mining companies.

Watched this last night.  The opening chapter with the eponymous Buster Scruggs was my favourite chapter.  Sadly, I thought it went downhill from there.

Not sure if i mentioned this previously, but as the full documentary is on YouTube it's worth another shot. A bent cop at the height of the New York crack explosion, unfolds like a Hollywood script, but it's better than most blockbusters.

I saw this a few weeks ago and forgot to mention it on here. Peterloo is one of the best movies I've seen for ages. It's about an appalling episode in British history, just after the battle of Waterloo. Hopefully many on SS are aware of it, especially if you're from Manchester. I found it very moving, and it should encourage people to vote in any election or whatever, people died trying to get the suffrage.

Finally got round to watching this last week.  Very entertaining with a great soundtrack.  Just watched "Tag" as an in flight movie, about a group of friends who get together once a year to continue a long running game of tag with no holds barred.  Jeremy Renner's character has never been caught, and is similar to Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock Holmes as he goes through the thought process involved in planning his moves and ultimate escape.  "You don't stop playing games because you get old, you get old because you stop playing games."

Men kissing men aside ( not my thing, but I know footballers do it...)

Bohemian Rhapsody... Queen..

Tremendous story and so much about Fred I did not know. Well acted in the main, and another story of a genius dying young.

I also really like biopics on the lives of musicians although i rarely get to see films of any kind as the majority of times it interferes with music that I want to produce myself.

I finally got around to watching this one in the early hours of this morning .

'Soaked In Bleach'

Everyone and his dog probably knows the back story on this, but for anyone who's unfamiliar, private investigator Tom Grant tries to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of Kurt Cobain of Nirvana when he's hired by Courtney Love, Cobain's  wife, to locate Cobain who'd walked out from treatment for heroin addiction at a  drug rehab facility. 

I originally read the Ian Halpern and Max Wallace book 'Who Killed Kurt Cobain' which part of this is based on, and 'DEAD MEN DON'T PULL TRIGGERS-OBSERVATIONS ON THE DEATH OF KURT COBAIN' by Roger Lewis years ago and always believed that there was a load of dodgy shit going on surrounding the death at the time..Tom Grant has pushed for the Seattle police department to reinvestigate for 2 decades as there's a lot of unanswered questions still and the case should definitely be reopened in my opinion. 

Kurt Cobain was obviously a troubled soul and although grim in places the film is well worth watching,even for people who may not be fans of the music .

If you liked Unbreakable and Split this is a must see, James McAvoy is incredible, if he doesn't get an Oscar for this then it's a crime.

Watched it last night and i`m sorry but it was shite!🙉  90 minutes I won`t get back. 

I`m half way through Apollo 11 and this is superb. I thought it was going to be like Apollo 13 (Which  as also excellent) but it completely not. This is a documentary mainly with footage not seen before, all cleaned up and crystal clear.

Rocketman. Excellent and makes you realise just how good Elton John & Bernie Taupin were as a writing team. Lennon & McCartney had nothing on them.
