High Rise

Don't. Just don't.

1/10

Are you a fan of J G Ballard or Ben Wheatley? Just curious as I am and I've been looking forward to High Rise.

Watched Samurai Cop 2 the other night. Truly, brilliantly terrible.

Worth it for Tommy Wiseau alone.

Non of the above. Never read a JG Ballard book, and didn't even know it was based on a book until I got in the hall. You may get more out of the film if you have read the book though, but I guess i'm just one of the un-learned. :lol:

captain america civil war

8) wow

I'm not a mad fan like the wife but this was awesome.

Took the kids to see it today as it was pishy weather and we all loved it. Loads of characters and a long running time made me tear it was going to be average like Age of Ultron but it was loads of fun. Love the humour and vibe the Marvel movies have which are sorely missing from things like BVSDOJ and they also managed to have an incredible fight scene near the end which was surprisingly brutal and shocking.

Sets up the Spidey movie nicely too and he was brilliant.

8.5/10...

Yup, saw it with 3 families on Sunday and we all loved it (apart from the missus, who only really likes Avengers movies for Thor).

In fact, I thought it was much better for not having the indestructible and over-powered Thor and Hulk in it.
It was also surprising it was labelled a Captain America film as it was as much about the other Avengers, which was cool.

Possibly the 2nd best MCU movie after Winter Soldier IMO.

Finally got round to watching 10 Cloverfield Lane. I managed to avoid all spoilers beforehand although the fact it's described as a blood relative of Cloverfield in all the publicity is enough of a spoiler I reckon.

First two acts were absolutely stunning in terms of atmosphere, tension and acting - got to love anything John Goodman does. Third act I'm not too sure about. I went with it and enjoyed it but it's not up to the standard of the rest of the movie.

My wife thought it was amazing up to that point and then thought it was awful - she compared it to other movies which she loved up to a certain point - the rubbery hairy werewolf hand appearing in Dog Soldiers and the monster reveal in Jeepers Creepers - two other movies which had a really tense and enjoyable build-up before changing pace.

I'd give it a solid 7 out of 10 overall but the first two acts 9 or even 10.

No.
Spidey was plastic, and the film lacked a plot.
I was disappointed. Not as good as Iron Man or either Cap Am film, or Avengers Assemble.

"You look like a Jelly Baby from down the back of the sofa"

Waltz with Bashir

The story of an Israeli veteran's search to find out what his role was in a specific part of the 1982 war with Lebanon.

Animated film, whick also means the few gruesome bits are 'easier' to watch.

7.5/10

Reviews of X-Men Apocalypse are notable by their absence here.

Have to say the trailer looked sh1t (as does the one for the new "Fast and Furious" Star Trek film) and apparently one review said it was as bad as Batman vs Superman, whereas another said it was worse than Batman vs Superman. :lol:

I think we've reached superhero comic overload and only the "proper" MCU films are maintaining a decent level of quality.

Dear Mr Yu, as you know all these things (and I can't be bothered to google it ;) ) when is the next GOTG coming out?

I don't think it's due until 2018

X-Men - Meh. It was OK, if a bit too long. I enjoyed the bit with Quicksilver, other than it was a complete rip off from Futurama. And Fry only need 100 coffees, not superpowers.
5 not-this-agains out of 10.

TMNT - I actually enjoyed this - was stupid, but kinda fun at the same time. Plenty of retro moments.
7 half-shells out of 10.

Warcraft - Getting mixed reviews. If you don't know the lore or have never played the games, it's probably pretty lost on you. But if you've read the comics or played the games, it's an enjoyable if a little schloky. Quite violent too.
7 Murlocs out of 10.

Actually May 2017, so less than a year. They need to set things up for the Infinity War story I guess.

Warcraft: I've never been into it but should have been better. The sfx were impressive, but the script sucked like a $2 crack wh0re and one decent fight scene. If there's going to be a sequel, I won't be watching it.

Never realised Gilles was a Southern fanny though. He seemed like such a decent chap. I shall eye him with suspicion from this day forth ;)

I enjoyed it.

I did think that if that messy cow had covered up the hole in the floor with the carpet behind her, all this mess would have been avoided...

The Evo forum really is a shadow of its former self. I remember when the internet was for the elite and now they seem to let any spastic on.

IaFG Supercharged Muppet Division

Triple 9 Watched half of it last night but could tell from the first few minutes it was rubbish.

Victoria

Interesting film - quite a good plot, but really set apart from the norm by the fact the whole film was filmed in one continuous shot. Really cleverly done with multiple locations and fairly intense scenes over the space of 2 hours. I liked it.

Loved that. I went in knowing nothing about it and even the very beginning was tense just thinking "is this a nice Before Sunrise or are they going rape and murder her?"

Tangerine had a similar feeling with the guerrilla shooting style but a more fun subject. Mon Roi and Polisse (both by Maiwenn) for a more heavy hitting naturalistic emotion.

Independence Day: Resurgence - highly enjoyable and it doesn't take itself too seriously. Has humour, great sfx, right amount of feels, and lots of explosions. The lead female and Chinese fighter pilot are fapping lovely:P:P
