Can't wait to see Alien. I've set my expectation at a level not to expect the first two films level of fear, but as long as it numbs the pain of the last few films I will take that.

I finally got round to watching Furious 7 when it got added to Netflix not long ago. It was quite a good action film and I actually did well up at the end (no tears were shed let me tell you lot now before you think "what a big baby! :lol: ").

After a long absence from the filcks, I saw.....



On paper, I should have loved this. It's a Finnish film, I love Scandinavian films, a bit left of centre, it's heart in the right place. It's also another film that is doing so well with critics (90%+ on Rotten Tomatoes).

I was bored senseless. I fell asleep and when I did wake up, it just annoyed me and I walked out.

It was weird, but not in a great way. Straddling somewhere between surreal and shit, my mind found itself concentrating on the shit aspects. Lots of non-actors and weird performances - if it had gone for the full surreal, I may have liked it.

I just didn't get it. Perhaps in a different frame of mind, I may have liked it.....or perhaps it was shit and the critics liked it's positive (and naive) message).

They seemed to really like that film on the Little White Lies podcast (one you might enjoy Lee as well as Picturehouse podcast).

Meanwhile, I nodded off during Wonder Woman. It's much better than anything DC have put out in the last few years but has some pacing issues and cruddy CG. But it's great to see strong women kicking ass in a big action blockbuster on both the acting and directing front.

Headshot - If you know 'The Raid' film series then you will sort of know the Mo Brothers who also done the film Killers (not the crappy Kutcher one).



How I Spent My Summer Vacation (aka Get The Gringo) - I swear I never get tired of this film no matter how many times itv4 airs it as Mel Gibson is just brilliant in it :lol:

Is it weird that I was excited that Netflix added Spooks: The Greater Good?

It was actually a decent 'extended episode' even though its a movie though I felt they could have added more violence to certain scenes which I felt was lacking.

Saw Baby Driver, the new Edgar Wright one. Tremendous amount of fun and kept a big grin on my face. Feels a bit like La La Land for the Grand Theft Auto generation. Music and choreography plays a huge part in this film, while at times it can feel a little bit too much, it's all done with bags of style, confidence and is wonderfully edited.

Kind of loses its way a little bit towards the end and it's not gonna win many awards in terms of scriptwriting, but it's a damn good ride.

Mechanic: Resurrection. Stupid Statham sequel that was OK but as I enjoyed the first I went in with higher expectations and not even the action could save what turned into quite a dull by the numbers film.

Power Rangers. This was a few months ago now. Stupidly poor movie with enough throwbacks to the original show to actually be entertaining enough. Definitely helped by the way they embraced how stupid the concept was in the second half of the film. Most worrying about the first hour is how they attempt to make a darker film along the same lines of Chronicle. Worth a watch if you were a fan growing up but don't expect anything. Overall very poor.

It Comes at Night


The teaser trailer had me quite excited for this, but the end result was a bit more run-of-the-mill type fare that felt like an episodic story from The Last of Us game. It does lean on suspense and creating a tense atmosphere than straight out jump scares, which I appreciate, kinda reminds me of The Witch at times but I think that film pulls it off a bit better. A solid film but doesn't do anything particularly interesting.
