I saw....



I enjoyed it very much.

It's very light, very young and very frothy. It does all three well.

Homecoming is clearly a reference to Spiderman coming into the Disney/Marvel Universe, but it still had Sony at the start.

Anyone understand how all this licence stuff works in regards to Marvel?

Sony still holds the rights to Spiderman films but there was a 'mutually beneficial' deal to bring Spidey to Disney / Marvel Studios. I get the feeling Sony would be happy for this agreement to continue after Raimi's Spiderman 3 and those not-so-Amazing Spider Man films being utter gash. 20th Century Fox still have rights to X-Men, Deadpool and Fantastic Four. I seem to remember there being a rather frosty relationship over the X-Men stuff but then Fox and Marvel TV co produced Legion, so who knows what could happen with that in the future.

I recently watched The Circle, a Netflix movie with Tom Hanks and Emma Watson. An utterly pointless movie with no real direction or resolution. Trying to portray the dystopian near future where a Google-like company have the ability to see and hear everything. Eventually they create a Facebook style site that allows you to live your life completely through this single app. Some good ideas yet nothing really pulled any of it together. Almost felt like small vignettes with the same characters that no one thought to tie together at any point.

Last night I saw.......



Highly recommended.

I think it's possibly Nolan's best. Again, not perfect and I will hold back the tiny niggles I had until more of you have seen it. do see it. It is a masterclass in filmmaking.

Interstellar brought some deep sci-fi to the masses and this brings something that I suspect most people wouldn't go to the cinema for.

I've got a lot of catching up to do film-wise after a busy few weeks, so hoping to catch Dunkirk, Spidey and the Ape films in the next few days.

I did take my sister's 3 minions to see Despicable Me 3. Fun fluff with some nice 80s moments to keep the old people like me entertained.

Double bill of Dunkirk and Spider-Man Homecoming today. Both were pretty decent, but I can't help feeling that both were a litter over hyped.

I'm a big fan of Nolan's films and he has some interesting takes on time and space in a lot of his films, but I don't think it's quite as successful in Dunkirk. I do like that there's no big exposition with generals round a war table or some cheesey personal love story twisted in, just a glimpse at a short period of time during the war. The dogfights are simply stunning and the sound design was particularly effective. It's impeccably shot without going over the top with blood, guts and limbs flying everywhere. Some of the editing choices did make certain scenes unnecessarily confusing I thought. But Memento was my first Nolan film and is still by far my favourite.

Spidey was fine. Bit too long in my opinion, but nice to see them making it a very fun and playful character. Holland and Keaton were great but I didn't care much for anyone else. I did like the angle they went with for Keaton's character but I couldn't help thinking of Birdman!

My only gripe with Dunkirk was the scale. There was supposed to be almost 400,000 people stranded. We saw about 15,00 max. Given the scale, I didn't see that in the film and the lack of wasn't explained. Bar that, I did think it was perfect.

Hounds of Love, an Australian indie thriller.



Intensely uncomfortable to watch but I found it utterly captivating. It's a relief that most of the gruesome things are implied or happen off screen, but impressive that it manages to stay so intense throughout.

I'm not sure it's the sort of thing I can say I enjoyed, but it's a remarkable feature film debut from the director and the two leads are phenomenal.

War for the Planet of the Apes - I wasn't too bothered for seeing this but very glad I did. It's reminded me how good the recent Ape series has been. Key to that has been the incredible motion capture performances and truly phenomenal CG animation. Feels much more than an action blockbuster with its emotional heft and thematically has a lot to chew over afterwards.

A Ghost Story - This was a very interesting one. Very low key, quiet, gentle and slow. Thoroughly captivating due to the effectively simple ghost character design and wonderful way it was framed and shot. It gives a rather unique perspective on dealing with grief in a very poignant way without turning into a big emotional blub-fest.
