This film had a lot going for it. Toni Collette was fantastic and there is a real rawness in the imagery, which is indeed disturbing at times. I thought Alex Wolff was miscast in his role. The main problem I had was that the director couldn't close the deal on this movie. There is about 60% of a decent film here. The last 40% is stuck in limbo. I'll give it a 5.5/10.Finally got around to watch Hereditary. Had this on my watch list for ages was meant to watch it last halloween but never got round to it.
It's a slow starter nothing really much happens in the first 20 mins or so, but damn does it take a sudden turn towards the twisted and dark. Probably the best horror movie I've seen in a long while, it wasn't predictable and the ending I loved. Toni Collette as always puts in a good performance.
If I was to have any gripe about the film is that it isn't really that scary but it is very much dark and twisted, I loved some of the imagery and while it may not scare it does shock. 7.5/10.
I wish I could forget Vinnie Jones was in it, lol. Him as The Juggernaut has to be one of the worst depictions of a hero in the comic genre, even worse than the first Deadpool depiction in the Wolverine movie.X-Men: The Last Stand
The only other time I've seen this was on a plane to Lanzarote but I couldn't get into it because every time it got interesting, the sound would cut off because one of the slags was announcing that the awful meals were about to be served or they'd be coming around with duty free or a survey or some other shite.
Anyway, rambling on there.
The film was alright, worst in the series though, I forgot Vinnie Jones was in it too.
I watched a fistfull of dollars the other day and it was excellent, went to watch For A Few Dollars more next as I got it in a trilogy thing also including the good the bad and the ugly and I dont know how but Ive lost the disc despite having never watched itFor A Few Dollars More
Brilliant Sergio Leone Western about two bounty killers after the same high reward target.
If you loved A Fistful of Dollars you might also want to check out a Japanese film called Yojimbo of which AFOD is essentially a Western remake, another great film.I watched a fistfull of dollars the other day and it was excellent, went to watch For A Few Dollars more next as I got it in a trilogy thing also including the good the bad and the ugly and I dont know how but Ive lost the disc despite having never watched it
Really want to see it now might have to pirate it
Fistful of dollars is like watching a music video in some parts (in a good way) I do wonder what itd be like without the music or with worse music instead of Morricones brilliance.
Also like the Bruce Willis Chris Walken 90s remake of it even though thats probs not a popular opinion.
Love most things Eastwood on both sides of the lens.Richard Jewell - Good film. Clint Eastwood doesn't really make any "bad" movies. Anyways, I read too many reviews beforehand and I got really hyped to see this. I should have lowered my expectations. Paul Walter Hauser, Kathy Bates, and Sam Rockwell turned in absolutely fantastic performances. I just got home and I started researching the history of these events. I guess I wanted an actual documentary more than I wanted a docudrama. All in all, a really good film that's definitely worth a watch or two. 7/10
