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?

Not just the Light Sabers, but the robots too. C-3PO and R2-D2 made it through 9 Star Wars films from Anakin Skywalker to Rey.

I thought it was fine and that it was an entertaining enough way to spend a couple of hours.

These films were never going to be to you now what the originals were to you as a kid.

I'm old enough to remember seeing the originals at the movies theatre when they first came out, and I thought that out of the recent Star Wars movies, Rogue One was good, good enough that I saw it twice at the theatre and bought it when it came out on DVD. The Force Awakens wasn't too bad and I bought that too. The last two movies I thought were bang average. The Last Jedi came out over two years ago, and I still can't bring myself to buy it yet.

I liked Rogue One. The story was much more straightforward and moved forward in a good way. The side characters were interesting and plot armour was not a feature for once.

The Gentlemen

Humorous and mildly entertaining, a return to the kind of stuff Guy Ritchie is best known for, it made a change to see Hugh Grant play a different role and pulled it off well. It's not for easily offended liberal types, the Independent were pretty scathing and seem unable to separate a film from reality.

The Joker

I thought that Joaquin Phoenix did an excellent job as The Joker. As a result of Phoenix's acting, the film turned out to be better than I expected and made up for what I thought was a very bland storyline.

I'm going to have to watch The Dark Knight again to compare Phoenix's Joker to Heath Ledger's Joker.

Ben-Hur (1959). I'm unwell and it was on Sky movies as per, so why not. Still epic. It's interesting to watch older movies - the acting was a lot different back then. Some good and others not so good, all speaking in an upper class manner.
I've also attempted to watch the remake, I couldn't resonate with it - I think reached 30-40 minutes in before getting bored and switching over.

Agree. I've always wondered why they haven't made a Vader back story, set during the 20 something years between episode III and episode IV - there has been comics/literature for that period. I think it would be interesting and possibly a blockbuster.

Yes, the original Ben Hur is a classic, the remake was crap.

I still think they'll make a film or two to fill in the gap between episode VI and episode VII.

That would just be like the new ones though, wouldn't it? Crappy. Vader is like everybody's favourite character and his back story involves killing people - which is what we all want to see right? Smile Rogue One got the balance right, a bit of violence but still okay for the young ones.

Watched it yesterday. I’ve seen reviews of it’s brilliant and it’s too slow, but I was kind of in the middle. I didn’t find I was bored by it, but I wouldn’t say it overly engaged me either.

I thought Phoenix offered a pretty good take on it and obviously as his was a back story version, it’s bound to be different, but I definitely liked Heath Ledger’s Joker more. I would love to have seen Ledger and Nolan have had the chance to have done an origin story for his Joker.

1917. Cracking film. Really very good but worth seeing on the biggest screen you can find.

I am sure you'll find other opinions but I thought it more than lived up to the hype. Like any film its not perfect but it's epic to look at and does so many things so very well, right down to all the high profile officer cameos. I think its masterful when you can build a picture of a fleshed out character on a couple of lines of dialogue.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Very good. Pitt, but even more so DiCaprio were excellent.

Have to say, for me, DiCaprio is such a talented actor.
Great to watch.

Completely agree, but I actually preferred Pitt in this movie though. A special mention to the guy who played Bruce Lee, I think he got it spot on. And also the guy who played Manson in his brief cameo, he was eerily good.

DiCaprio has been Oscar-worthy of a few movies, and for me The Revenant wasn't one of them.

I still haven't seen it, but it's winning awards here and in the US left right & centre. Take that Phoenix you wackjob.

Went to see the Revenant. Got bored. Some really spectacular shots and the whole thing with the bear is amazing. But it can mostly be summarised by saying 'And then it got worse'. Then you get stuff like the multi shot pistols, the whole Pawnee thing which never happened (they didn't get massacred etc) the way in which he recovers so quickly etc.

The real story is amazing, but then I guess having a guy crawl for miles with a broken leg and the bear wounds doesn't make for such a great film either

1917 is one of the best films I've seen in a while. The way it is shot with one continous take is brilliant, Sam Mendes is certainly one of the best film makers out there today.

It's silly that Parasite beat it to best picture at the Oscars, if you ask me it was the academy trying to make amends for an apparent lack of representation.

Really good return to form, back to lock stock and 2 smoking barrel's. Fun, engaging quite a few twist, funny.

The Academy virtue signaling is as predictable as the speeches are soppy, gushy, overwrought slush.

It's not about the art of Cinema anymore, merely political fad soundboarding to collect social media fans (not that I'm denigrating Paradise, a movie I haven't seen yet and might very well be worthy enough to win).

It's way past time that movie writers, actors, directors, producers and financiers got back to simply trying to entertain the world and drop the political grandstanding.

Ain't gonna happen though, is it.

The last film I watched was a short film - which by sheer coincidence I was the Producer of.
Enjoy - and share with everyone you know so we can get the view numbers up!

Joaquin Phoenix berating the Oscars for not giving any clubman award to minorities whilst accepting his Oscar was the worst acting of his career.
