The Last Film watched (CONTAINS STAR WARS SPOILERS!!)

Post by President Trump on Tue 10 Nov 2015, 10:23 am

First topic message reminder :

I watch two films over the last few days

Seventh Son: Absolute tosh, it felt like a bad D&D film from SyFy

The Wedding Ringer: It was a fun movie, predictable but fun, "Who the hell are these guys, it's like the Goonies grew up and became r@pists" Laugh

I also saw Murder on the Orient Express, and would agree with pretty much everything guildford says. Not a masterpiece, but a very enjoyable film thoroughly well made.

The main plus point is the terrific cast who all give excellent performances IMO, and the excellent scenery and cinematography in general. The mystery is well spun, and the pacing very good.

The negatives are that while there's nothing wrong with Brannagh's performance per se, I don't think he quite nails Poirot. Guildford calls him "too athletic", to which I would add "too angry" at times, and also maybe a bit too "Sherlocky" in the way he deduces things from little material clues. I totally agree with guildford's point that "answers [tend] to be presented rather than clues worked out", whereas the fun of a murder mystery is for the spectator to work things out along with the detective.

7/10 feels about right.

It's also impeccably titled, so should score full marks on the HH scale Very Happy.

I also saw Passengers recently.

Overall, a bit meh. Tries to be too many films at once IMO. The first act is an introduction to Christ Pratt's character and deals with his difficult dilemma. The second part is a classic rom-com of "boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy loses girl", etc. in Space. The third part is a "the ship is falling apart and needs boy + girl to work together and rescue it (and all the passengers)". As a result the various parts feel rather underdeveloped to me, with too many Ex-Machinas (e.g. Lawrence Fishburne's character also conveniently waking up so that he can give Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence access to the right parts of the ship). The two main actors both give good performances, which just about carry the film, and some of the visuals are excellent (the water bubble scene in the last act), but overall, this is a disappointment: the script just doesn't hold up well enough IMO. 5/10

I haven't seen it yet - intending to go this week.
But surely there should be a +1 to the rating for the moustache alone

Filth came out a few years ago - dark but great film which is basically the James McAvoy show. Highly recommended.

Jonah Hex.

Tino Memorial  rating.  7
GSoE. 7/10. Enjoyable film, in Which John Malcavich & Josh Bolin play there parts well. Sort of western,  where a guy brought back from death is an outlaw. Who gets a chance of revenge on the guy who put him there.
HH scale of accrate titling. 10. It' about a guy called Jonah Hex.
Micheals scale of t**ts and War. 7/10. Megan Fox is in it but  dressed. But there' a fair amount of violence.
Rowley scale of Northern thriftiness. 8/10. £3.50 thanks to Google store.

Okay romp, that' a sort of sunday film (ie don' have to engage brain to watch). It' silliness sort of adds to the film.

"Life"

Tino memorial rating : 6.879 - Enjoyable, didnt see much promo about this, so went in a little blind, but was rather enjoyable, if not a bit mad!

GSoE: 8

HH Scale of Accurate Titling: 1/10 or 10/10? – Its based on the discovery of life on mars, which quickly becomes that the life "Calvin" - then tries to kill everyone on board the ISS - therefore trying to remove "life", so i suppose you could see how the title works, other options could have been "Alien Squid"

Michaels scale of tits OR war: 4/10 – No tits - and the war is pretty much down to 1 alien, and 6 astronauts, so not exactly a war, more of a playground scuffle.

Rowley Scale of Northern Thriftiness: 5/10 - Free on Sky Cinema - and by free, it means Rupert Murdoch pulls my pants down and does me dry every month to the tune of £80.00

Star wars the last jedi.

Tino Memorial rating.  7.3

GSoE.  7

HH scale of accrate titling. 2/10

There is a star (lots of them), and there are wars going on. But the star's not involved in any of them. It just floating along doing it thing. And it seems pretty neutral to me.

Micheals scale of t*ts and War.  3/10.

Not only is there no nudity.but absolutely no chance of any. The war scenes are more comic book than saving private Ryan 

Rowley scale of Northern thriftiness.   2/10

 £20 for ticket drink popcorn and absolutely horrible hot dog (I was hungry and hadn' eaten all day). £1 for 3d glass. The film was in 3d! You didn' offer me an option to not watch in 3d you money making b*****dsl

I'm not  the biggest fan of star wars. I think they're okay but that's about it. 
This one had alot more action then the last one. More comedy moments, and moved the franchise forward with still some nods to the past. 
It's also 40 mins to long, has 2 many slow bits. The lightsaber fight, while intresting is now where near as good as the one in clone wars, or revenge of the sith. And I'm losing intrest with the main characters.

If your really into star wars, you'l probably love this film. It like me your neither hear nor there. It' enjoyable but it won't last long in the memory. 
If you don' like star wars, why are you seeing this film.

I’m going to see it at 9.
Like you in 3D, also will have hot dog and popcorn.
Already have the glasses.

Don’t mind 3D, so hopefully this will be good.
Wasn’t a huge fan of The Force Awakens, hope this will be better.

Did enjoy Rogue One.

Last Jedi was decent enough. Far from the best ever Star Wars though. It wasnt bad enough that Force Awakens was almost a carbon copy of New Hope, but most of the key plotlines here were lifted straight from episodes 5 and 6, namely
Spoiler:
the Old Jedi master Yoda Luke training the young, fledgling Jedi Luke Rey, and the main antagonist with a revalation about the protaganists parents while trying to lure them to the darkside.

And dont get me started on that Leia bit.

6/10.

Star wars the last jedi.

Tino Memorial rating.  6.012

GSoE.  6

HH scale of accurate titling. 2/10

Spoiler:
I seriously doubt that this is the last Jedi, and no stars fight

Micheals scale of t*ts and War.  6/10.

No nudity, fair bit of war

Rowley scale of Northern thriftiness.   5/10

Someone else paid, but it wasn't cheap.

Talking to someone in work with who's far more into star wars than I am. Neither of us know where it's going in the next one. Both think you could cut out parts and it wouldn't effect the film and would make it better.

But all the Leigh bits wound us up, especially given what's happened in real life. Mind you the scene at the very end wound him up more.

Like I said it's  an enjoyable film. But not memorable. And a film that like rogue one. Made to be on its own. But leaves more questions.

Pitch perfect 3.

Tino Memorial rating  - 2.85

GSoE - 4

HH Scale of accurate titling - 7

Micheals scale of t*ts and violence - 0.

Was it really to much to ask for one more shower scene. Or a girls bonding session that takes an unexpected turn for the better.

Rowley scale of Northern thriftiness - 1

Bradford Cineworld  £16.50 for ticket, popcorn & coke. I didn't want shares in the companies that I must now have for that price.

The singing was as good as ever (thought no mash ups which was disappointing). Think Anna Kendrick's voice is better now than at the start of these films. Some of the comical lines and scenes worked, most didn't. There was a story line apparently , and the bit on the boat was absolutely pointless.  

If you want to watch a good pitch perfect film watch the first one,as this isn't.

I watched Kingsman: The Golden Circle last night. What a waste of 2 hours and twenty minutes of my life that was. Julianne Moore and Halle Berry, both Oscar winners, must be hard up for cash. Apart from the swearing, I thought I was watching a kids movie!

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Good film, well acted, if you have seen and enjoyed In Bruges you may well like this, similar very dark comedy amongst the drama.

Don't Breathe (DVD)

More thriller than the horror than it is advertised to be but nonetheless imo well worth a look and does not outstay it's welcome.

Geostorm

Gerard Butler plays a scientist/hero, an expert who creates a machine to control the weather which is sabotaged. Every bit as bad as it sounds, one or two decent destruction scenes but otherwise generic drivel. Sad to see Andy Garcia and Richard Schiff (West Wing) reduced to this but I guess they have to work like everyone else.

Yeah,  Gerard's career took a tumble down a well shaft after his last great performance in 300 - and let's face it, Brian Blessed could have done the role just as well:

"Logan"

Tino memorial rating : 8.75486 - Not a huge X-Men/Wolverine Fan, but this was more for the grown-ups, which added a nice amount of blood/Gore/F-Bombs!

GSoE: 9

HH Scale of Accurate Titling: 10/10 – Logan is the main protagonist....features heavily in the film, and his name is Logan.... pretty bang on title!

Michaels scale of tits OR war: Tits - 3/10 - No breasts, but Stephen Merchant is in it, and he is a bit of a tit! 8/10 for war, plenty of slashy/stabby/pokey claw kills from ol' knife-hands!

Rowley Scale of Northern Thriftiness: 5/10 - i repeat my previous quarell,in that it was free on Sky, but is anything ever really free on Sky?

Excellent review, has allowed me to detest Logan without the bother of watching it. I particularly like the dig at Sky, and the joke about Steve Merchant had me pausing my Monday morning crap so that I could enjoy a quick chuckle.

"Black Panther

Tino memorial rating : 8.2156 - 2 hours flew by, and the pacing, cinematography and action were spot on

GSoE: 9

HH Scale of Accurate Titling: 7/10 – A tentative 5 it could be much higher as the protagonist is called Black Panther, but as he is not an actual Black Panther I have marked it down (I do appreciate that a Black Panther is not an actual animal so marked it back up a bit)

Michaels scale of tits OR war: Tits - 3/10 - No breasts, can see some nips through tops 7/10 for war, lots of scrapping, no gore

Rowley Scale of Northern Thriftiness: 2/10 - Odeon isense cost a fortune

Textbook Rick. They should include a picture of it in the dictionary next to the definition of 'Review'.

I saw a few recently.

The Mercy is a true story of a round the world boat endurance race. If follows Donald something who pretended he was further than he actually went. It's not going to win any best movies but i enjoyed it.

Three billboards. It was one of those where you're waiting for something to happen, then it ends! A bit overrated although well acted and nicely shot film.

On many cult classic lists you'll find 'The Warriors'. Set in the late 70s it starts off as a mega meeting of all the gangs in New York. When the speaker gets shot and killed, the warriors are framed. They then have to travel back through NY in the middle of the night while being chased by other gangs. The acting isn't great and it ain't big budget but you get a real taste of the gritty NY of the 70s and it's culture. It's also a bit of an adventure traveling through the urban jungle.

"Thor - Ragnarok"

Tino memorial rating : 7.5874 - Not seen any of the previous Thor's, but this one looked all new and shiny, so thought i would give it a whirl.

GSoE: 8.6

HH Scale of Accurate Titling: 8/10 – Thor Ragnarok - Well the main man is ol' Thor, God of Thunder & all that jazz....so thats a good start. Ragnarok as a word features quite heavily, still no overly sure what it was, but it was mentioned a lot.

Michaels scale of tits OR war: Tits - one topless scene where God of Pecs shows off his rippling torso, and the Hulk gets his dimply arse-cheeks out. Not sure if i would class it as a war, but some fisty-cuffs ensued, and there was a winner, so i suppose it could be a war.... who knows, certainly not me!

Rowley Scale of Northern Thriftiness: 5/10 - The wife was sent to sainsburys for some steak, and returned with the film, so it didnt cost me anything, but the Scott household took a hit of £9.99.

TattieSconesRRN-Q: "Piss off Ghost" - Said in a South African/Australian Accent, i couldnt tell which (is this racist?)

If Barry Norman had done his reviews like this he wouldn't be dead now.

Was he murdered due to his substandard movie reviewing technique?

Excellent review, the racism only adds to it. If Barry Norman reviewed films like that I wouldn't have been forced to smother him with his pillow.

Warriors is a wonderful film, based on an old greek story about the escape of a greek mercenary army from Persia after their patron had died. (Xenophon Anabasis). The acting isn't always great, and some of the language has not dated well, but it is well worth catching if you have never seen it. "Waaaaarriors, come out to plaaaay"

Sounds like Assault on Precinct 13 with Wheels - or - Some like it Hot without the laughs?

It's good (although the high camp provided by the roller-skating gang undermines the sense of threat a fair bit) but it's nowhere near as great as those two films.

Managed to get a ticket for the unlimited screening of Ready Player One last night. Only read the book the other month and really enjoyed it, was somewhat apprehensive of how they would put the ideas forward on screen, but it was a very entertaining movie

There was a number of changes from the book, some of which were required, some I'd rather they left alone, however some of the additional content was really good

Solid 7/10 for me, will watch again when it's released next week

Both Tim and Jim from The Office (UK and US) feature in horror movies released this week

Ghost Stories was a good watch. Paranormal debunker is given 3 cases which are deemed unexplainable. Its not really scary or jumpy and you can see the ending coming a mile off, but it's a good watch all the same and it has quite a few funny moments too 3/5

A quiet place. Co-written, directed and starred in by Jim Halpert, sorry John Krasinski (Obviously the guy has talent), a quiet place does a very good job at building tension throughout. Again I wouldn't say it's all that scary but i did find myself fully immersed and genuinely nervous for the characters, wonderfully acted. Word of warning though, as the movie is largely quiet for large parts (score aside), get ready to be annoyed by every rustle of a popcorn bag or opening of every sweet by others in the theatre with you. 4/5

Recommend both

Went to see Ready Player One at the weekend. It wasn't too bad. Set in the year 2047, it's basically showing a future where most people in the real world are poor but theres this amazing virtual world called the oasis where they can do anything and design their own avatar.

To cut a long story short, the genius who created the world died but left 3 hidden keys which would grant the winner control of the world.

I'll give it an 8/10. It dragged on a bit but is a unique type of film and by 2047 there will be amazing virtual worlds that look very life like, where people can hang out. So in that sense it was an accurate view of the future.
