FUCKING LOGAN FUCKING FUCK.

Jesus H Christ, that was near perfect. Just fantastic powerful stuff...about a fucking superhero. Jesus, I just can't believe how great it was. Remember that trailer? It captured the spirit of that trailer throughout. Just...wow. I'm blown away. Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart...amazing.

Who knew that stupid superhero movies could birth something so great. All those shit movies were worth it just for this single film.

Mind you, if I had my way I'd have cut the film by 20 minutes and ended it when he wakes up from his nightmare and says "I hurt people." Just blackness straight after that sentence. 30 seconds of nothing and roll credits with the trailer music fading in slowly. I'm telling you THAT would have been the perfect film.

A massive Kevin out of 10.

Logan was fucking brilliant. Like you, I assumed the trailer would turn out to be totally unrepresentative but nope, they stayed the fucking course and went all in. It did go a tiny bit superhero-y flashy for the final section but even that was (relatively) restrained and relevant. Also: Steven Merchant was very good. I was worried he'd derail the tone of his scenes by being too, well, *him*, but his mix of bitter and sarcastic suited the character, and the whole film, brilliantly.

I've just started to watch Assam Sandler's latest film Sandy Wexler. His character is somewhere between Little Nicky and Waterboy. He's so talented.

I watched Kingsman last night. I never fancied it but everyone here bumming it wore down my resolve and I'm glad I did

The 'Freebird' scene is fucking jawdropping. I'm glad I watched it just for that. All the fight scenes are great (as a wrestling saddo I enjoyed Eggsy suplexing a mook and then bridging out of it to shoot another).

As to the returning character... It was the least convincing movie death I've ever seen anyway. I half expected him to show up later in the same movie.

Yeah I didn't totally love everything about the movie, but it is mostly enjoyable.

I think they spent way too much time on training Eggsy, and some of the plot contrivances were a bit much to accept, but yeah that central action setpiece was phenomenal (although I'd have loved it if they presented it without any cuts, rather than with not very many cuts. It did a great job of masking the cuts in the middle of the action, so why even cut away at all?). I'd also say the elements dealing with class were a little heavy handed.

I don't love it as much as Kick-ass, but it is a good film.

Great, silly stuff. Sammy J is great, Hiddleston is forgettable, John Goodman is watchable as always. He's also lot a fair bit of weight recently, which can only be a god thing - he will be a genuine loss to acting when he dies, and it'd be great if it's a longer way off.

Moana - took the kids for their first cinema visit (they were very well behaved, the film kept them engrossed whichi si pretty good for a 2 and a 4 year old). I do enjoy a bit of polynesian culture, and The Rock absolutely nailed the voice acting (it was so good, it took me a while to twig it was actually him). It was quite simplistic and trotted out a lot of seen-before tropes but overall, very good family fun. The design/animation of the major baddie was excellent. The whole cinema enjoyed hearing our 2 year old's little high pitched voice calling out 'that's a big TV'.


Yeah, the basic plot on this was as old as time, but I think the film was pretty awesome. The Rock's song was also excellent!


I've had to watch to the 'You're Welcome!' song on youtube a few times today - it's fantastic, and the art style during the song is amazing.

You guys are gross - get laid. Looks to be a good film though. Plaza, Offerman, Brie - some of my favourite acting peeps.

It's a good cast but there's a high chance it'll be shit-awful given that America seems to have entirely forgotten how to do comedy films in the last few years (unless your idea of comedy is brick-in-the-face lowest common denominator bullshit in which case this is a golden era).

Gosh, we have different tastes in comedy - whoever would have thought? :D

Today I learned that Birdman is a comedy ;)

Watched Bridge Of Spies the other night - was pretty good. Hanks is as dependable as ever, and Mark Rylance put in a good performance too. Some fantastic directing and visuals too, I'd argue it's one of Spielberg's best.

I suppose it has funny elements, but I'd consider it more drama than comedy.

"Comedy film" to me says something that's created specifically to make people laugh.

Wikipedia lists it as a "black comedy", which I suppose I can agree with - I'd categorise Grosse Pointe Blank in the same genre as Birdman.
