Stupidest past of any film, absolute nonsense, girls in the Cinema were shouting girl power while I curled up in a ball and died of cringe.
It really Really put me off the film, just pure cheese to please the feminists. There's an actual war going off around them all, its absolute chaos yet somehow all the women manage to take time to walk togetherThey all turned up at the exact same moment to do a slow mo walk by while the blokes were doing all the hard work fighting.
It was a little underwelming to be honest, although I did enjoy watching it as hammed up nostalgia. Beautifully captured but plotwise the film didn't feel necessary afterall. The tv movie was not much more than a cast reunion.Deadwood - The Movie
13 years after cancellation, it's no small miracle that one of the best series ever gets a proper conclusion. 110 short minutes, 10 years of plot holes to deal with and swan songs to deliver, it's rather a long, slow TV episode than a standalone epic. Not much in terms of action or twists, it's half look at our main characters' lives and half concluding the George Hearst plot line.
It's a strange mixture and I'm surprised it didn't go full 150 minutes following a classic western plot line, but revisiting the Gem, seeing E.B. and Wu and listening to Swegin's poetry makes any fan's eyes teary. Once again: fuck you HBO for cancelling Deadwoow... but also thx brah 4 the late, bittersweet finish.
Anybody seeing the Snowman yet ?
It looks good from the trailers but you can never really rely on that Going to the cinema today but not sure if should watch that or Maze yet.
Bad Times at the El Royale
I really enjoyed the first two-thirds of the movie - stylish, quirky neo-noir mystery with some Tarantino-esque touches. But the tide changed in its final third IMO, as the pacing slowed and the story meandered. The movie also had a tendency to kill off major characters just as they were starting to emerge as interesting and/or likable, so that it never really enables you to get a "feel" or fondness for any character.
My rating: 6.5/10
The first time I saw Primal Fear it just blew me away. Great movie IMO and a 9/10.
Briskly-paced murder mystery and courtroom drama. Great acting all around, especially from a young Ed Norton as a choir boy who's accused of the grizzly murder of a revered archbishop. Unfortunately, I felt the courtroom scenes were a bit too overly dramatic/Hollywood-ized, which detracted from the realism and immersion of the film. However, this shortcoming was redeemed somewhat by a great twist ending.
The ending to Shutter Island was pretty mind bending. Coincidentally a mate watched it for the first time just recently and argued it was just another film and tried to claim he predicted the ending. I called bullshit.Shutter island
Thought this was ace, I had been meaning to watch it for ages, great cinematography, cast and story telling
Enjoyed the ending too
