John Wick.

Very slick, very stylish, and the fight scenes were sublimely choreographed.

9/10


Ex Machina

Treated myself to some decent sci fi after managing watching just 30 minutes of Jupiter Ascending (utter trousers). Very clever, simple and cool.

9/10

If you haven't seen Searching for Sugar Man, that is well worth a watch.

Don't want to ruin it, but it's documentary style. Really interesting. Doesn't go where you think it is going to go.

8/10
I've started this multiple times on Netflix but never made it past 5 minutes.

Which happens with most programmes I watch regardless of my interest.

I'll try again.



This is also very good.

Dad's Army. 6/10

Not all the characters are on the mark but the Godfrey character is played brilliantly.

Get Carter, the 2000 "remake"

Sylvester Stallone has the title role, so lots of clobbering and mindless ultraviolence. Michael Caine is also in it. He must really have needed the cash!

The Revenant.

What was all the hype about? It's decidedly average.

Not disagreeing with you, though the film was really incredibly violent. In fact I think it was really only violence, from beginning to end.

The endless obsession with head shots was a little weird.

I preferred this to the harry potter films as I lost interest in those quite early on.

I would not recommend it for young kids. Perfect entertainment for young adults over Christmas though, I think it'll be a hit.

Eddie Redmayne is perfect for the role.

Katherine Waterston is great and very easy to look at....

Dan Fogler is perfect as the likeable, comedy relief character.

I came out with an awful headache. Some of the action scenes are a bit OTT. I don't think the volume in the theatre helped. It was freezing in there as well. The film aside it was a pretty poor effort by Vue Cinema. Prices were reduced though. Which is happening across all cinemas in my area. One place has a blanket price of £4 for all films and it is ridiculously packed.

Anyway, I didn't think I'd care about the characters that much given it is the 1st film. My eyes watered up a bit near the end though....

Mark Kermode regularly says he openly cries with joy and sadness during films. I know men don't need to act buff at all times, but really?. It is very rare I find a film that makes me so engrossed in the characters that I cry.

Armageddon with Bruce Willis possibly being the only one.... My youthful teenage self was melting pot of emotion.

I think he tries to make it too high brow occasionally.

But I do suppose it is an art?.

It is one of the few tangible creative things that make it through history.

The oscars are more a snap shot of a time period than a rating of the film on its own.

It's more than just a case of entertainment.

Still, sometimes he is quite annoying.

I think Kermode is excellent. I dont agree with him on everything, the first Pirates of the Carribean is a fun romp-along and works well, not to mention his obsession with the Exorcist, but I often see a film, find his review afterwards and then think about elements of the film that i missed at the time.

Ive also seek out films I probably wouldnt have looked to see without hearing his opinion first. Great reviewer who has a proper passion for film and its origins and history.
