Ghost

Classic 80's romantic comedy. Demi Moore with a boy's haircut is still hot as fuck and Patrick Swayze was a great lead. The real star is Woopie Golderberg, the laughs she brings make the movie. Women love this film, but being directed by Jerry Zucker it has enough humour in it to keep blokes interest. I'd always dismissed it growing up til the wife made me watch it. Real tear jerker of an ending and even if it has dated quite bad the scary hell mofo's still get you. Unchained Melody is a beautiful song, love the Righteous Brothers, need to watch Top Gun soon. The wet clay scene isn't as graphic as I expected. Tony Goldwyn is a great baddy too, what a cunt his character is, odd looking Vincent Schiavelli is also awesome as the subway ghost.


7/10 Demi showing her little body off is a must see for any fan of the arts.

Bad Boys for Life (7/10)

Enjoyed it more than I thought it would be. I find Bad Boys 2 to be bay at his most nihilistic and indulgent. But even with new Directors on board they still pay homage to the Transformers auteur. Even though you take out the ‘negative’ elements of Bayhem (Jingoism, Misogyny, Racism etc) it still feel like it’s missing that kinectic chaos that Bay brought to the first two entries. It just proves that Will Smiths chemistry with Martin Lawrence is still the strongest part of this series and it’s nice to see Smith get a hit after so many recents bombs (Suicide Squad, Collateral Beauty, Bright, Gemini Man, Aladdin etc).

Watched The Fugitive last night, great film, one of the best of the 90's.

Tonight we watched Paycheck, never seen it before, average John Woo sci-fi action flick with Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman.

I got Netflix just to watch El Camino and ended up keeping it for a few months. I've had it before but was always disappointed with their lack of quality horror movies. Well, I've come to my senses and cancelled that shit and will be adding the streaming service Shudder for awhile. I browsed their selections and there is tons of shit that I actually want to watch. Reviews will be coming. I know my reviews are brief and not very in-depth, but I like to keep it simple.

There's this Haunted Hill House, House on Hunted Hill or whatever I'm hearing lots of great opinions of, also on Netflix. Plus watch BoJack Horseman, best show around.

Yeah I loved the Haunting of Hill House. Pure horror fans won't like it though because it's not your typical gore or scarefest it's less horror more psychological family drama. Having said that I won't ever be able to get the "Bent kneck lady" scene out of my head, that shit is ingrained into my mind, I even saw the outcome coming but the way it portrayed it, still fucked with my head.

Watched Zombieland 2 - double tap yesterday. If you liked the first one, you'll like the 2nd one. Actually I wasn't that big a fan of the first movie I thought it was OK, but I actually liked the sequel more, though maybe I just got dumber, lol. It's everything you'd expect, fun and entertaining with zombies, decent way to pass a couple of hours. 7/10

The Gentlemen



Guy Ritchie's latest, which sees him back on familiar territory with a convoluted tale from the London Ganglands.

Matthew McConaghy is a wealthy American pot dealer looking to sell up his criminal empire however trouble ensues when rival gangs try and muscle in.

It's a very old fashioned film, which feels at times like Ritchie is parodying himself and /or Tarantino from the 90's.

Ritchie touches on a lot of his usual cornerstones, cartoon gangsters, London culture, the country set, violence, broad stereotypes, and broader comedy.

The plot isn't up to much, and I wasn't really invested at any point, but it is well acted and very funny in points. Colin Farrell is hilarious, and Michelle Dockerby and Charlie Hunam are excellent.

McConaghy is good, but is in many ways the straight man, so a bit overshadowed by the bigger characters.

The missus liked it more than I did and she really liked Hugh Grant, (I wasn't as keen), but she struggled a bit with the racist language, and one scene of implied sexual violence.

I didn't mind the language, it was mainly funny, and believable from the cast of gangsters and fleet street slime balls. The sexual violence was clumsy and distracting though.

I laughed a lot, but can only give it 3 out of 5 due to the slightly uninteresting plot and slow start.

Saw it. Liked it so much I saw it twice. Kinda of a typical G. Ritchie British gangster movie. I found it to be a fun movie.

Watched Uncut Gems a few weeks ago. Not really a good movie. Problem is there is actually no one to like in the movies. Sandler is an obnoxious jew, who is basically a POS, who you oddly find yourself rooting at the end of the movie.

Best part of the movie is the chick Sandler is having an affair with has one of the all-time great butts.

There are aspects to admire about Uncut Gems such as - characters with no priror acting credits who give the movie a sense of authenticity , stylish direction and a good soundtrack. But Sandler is too much of a tardy thoughout the film to make it enjoyable. Im unsure whether is was good or total crap.

Uncut Gems (2019)



For almost the totality of it's run-time Uncut Gems is a protracted, anxiety-inducing assault on the senses. Adam Sandler is extremely impressive as Howard Ratner, a sleazy but sympathetic jeweller up to his neck in gambling debts. The film follows Ratner as he attempts to claw his way out of this hole and satisfy his loan-shark creditors. To this end he hatches a plan involving the sale of a rare Black Opal which he thinks will be his salvation... However, the circumstances Ratner has found himself in are clearly beyond his control. External forces, along with his own personal failings and compulsive gambling, leads to an increasingly desperate situation.

An excellent crime drama, full of psychological depth and told with punishing intensity.

Boyz n the Hood (1991)


Superb coming of age drama that also serves as a chilling reminder of all the shit that went down in black LA neighborhoods in the 80s/90s, not that we're past social issues, crime or violence a generation later. Even though a well rehearsed moviegoer will predict most character paths, John Singleton directs a talented cast with such clarity you feel you're there and feel the same suffocating frustration, anger, fear and helplessness. But where Boyz n the Hood really excels is putting all that violent shit into a broader socio-economical perspective, quite accurately recognizing outer forces that create ghettos and violent corners without lecturing the viewer or playing the victim card. Perhaps the title rubbed be wrong for years, but I'm glad I've finally seen this one in glorious 4K. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

This is one of the few Tarantino films I really like, effective but very simple and believable compared to the contrived monstosities he makes today.



Star Wars

Badly acted but fun, doesn't have the same effect on me it had when I was a kid but still enjoyable enough to pass a couple of hours none the less.

Best part for me was when he got slotted and actually shut the fuck up.

Judy

Thirty years after starring in "The Wizard of Oz," beloved actress and singer Judy Garland arrives in London to perform sold-out shows at the Talk of the Town nightclub. While there, she reminisces with friends and fans and begins a whirlwind romance with musician Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Renee Zellweger deservedly won best actress at the Oscars for her role as Garland. It is a stunning depiction of the screen icon. I was surprised to see Jessie Buckley nominated for best supporting, but Laura Dern won for a role she didn't have to do much in ether so I'm guessing competition was not deep for that award. I like Buckley, good actress, nice voice and pretty, she has a warmth to her in roles like this. In the film Judy Garland is a mess, no money, unreliable and untouchable, her drink and drug problems that began while making Wizard of Oz would soon take her life, she almost finds happiness, but she's fucked and Zellweger captures that. The only draw back for me was during certain parts of scenes with Judy on stage singing, the syncing was not quite right, Zellweger acts the arse out of each performance, but the vocals do not fit her facial performance. Very odd. The songs are great. I'm not sure we get the full story from either end of her career or life, it feels too safe and I wanted more from the film, but that could have gone far darker than the film ever intended.

7/10 Not a must see for people on here. A good enough film to catch if the missus offers it forward.

Goodfellas

Brilliant film based on a true story with some great performances though I've always found it runs out of steam with half an hour to go which prevents it from being a truly great film but still it's definitely a film any film fan and anybody who's interested in the mob must see.
