I didn't just find it cynical and cheap. I found the plot awful and pointless; the characterisation utterly missing and the acting generally terrible. I judged it as a film, it's one of the worst I've ever seen. 'Hysterical' is a bullshit word to describe me calmly stating my opinion of something. Don't do it.

I really dislike those films whose plot is basically “find x muguffins”. It’s insipid storytelling regardless of the setting especially when you put little effort into the characterisation. National sodding Treasure did it better than RP1.

His House - Great bit of horror! Very current and feels like a fresh take. Recommended.

Empire State. Thought this would be a great Friday night film with The Rock. It was not what either of us expected. I'm not going to review it because it didn't give me what I wanted or expected it too, but I might have enjoyed it had I have known what I was getting in to.

Don't bother watching it for The Rock, he's barely in it and there is none of his humour that we have come to expect.

I hear Mark Kermode is looking for a new review partner. You should give him a call with this kind of in-depth exploration of both theme and form.

I refereed one of Ricky Knights matches once with his wife as his valet. They are indeed mad... Nice guy though! You'd never have guessed he'd been in prison.

Usual film of small town girl gone good. Very funny and made my eyes water too.

I was only kidding, you silly sweet fool. It’s a great film. I think Trousers may have mentioned it every day for a year until I eventually watched it.

“I saw the devil” is a good film. I think it’s on Netflix.

Anyway, basically this serial killer kills a woman and her husband seeks revenge; so the husband captures the killer, breaks his arm, lets him go, captures him, breaks a leg and keeps repeating hurting him and letting him go.

It’s Korean and very violent. I approve.

Dolemite is my Name. Eddie Murphy, Pontiac Bandit, Titus Andronicus, Wesley Snipes chewing the walls. Took me a while to tune into it, but it's funky feel-good.

Based on the life of Rudy Ray Murphy, "The Godfather of Rap".

Watched this shortly after it came out, it's one of Wesley Snipes best performances imo. Absolutely loved the film, and immediately watched the actual film from the 70s straight after (it's on prime)

Impressed with this, I watched the directors previous work which was “A Tale of Two Sisters”. I went in completely blind and really, really enjoyed it. Reminded me of early Japanese horrors that aren’t really horror films (and those Japanese horrors that are horrors, conversely). Cinematography was great; the characters really commit and it was a nice slow burner. The only complaint I have was that the ending was a little poor with a flashback that was a bit laboured. I’d have chopped the ending around a bit to make it more vague what happened. Still, really good and well worth your time.

Apparently it had received an American remake called The Uninvited which was as shit as those American remakes of Japanese horror films that were popular in the 2000’s.

Ghosts of War - Out on Netflix and possibly thrown onto my watch list after seeing the great 'His House' the other night. Well, it starts off well and remains very engaging until the last quarter of the film where it gets flipped out of itself. I could see it working well on paper but it's handled badly unfortunately. Shame.

The new American Pie movie (the one with girls as the main cast) is fucking dire.

And not because the main cast are girls. It just really, really is.

Irresistible is a really, really, good film about the democrats (licking wounds after 2016 presidential election) taking an interest in a mayoral election in Wisconsin. Steve Carroll is superb on this Jon Stewart written and directed film. Also has the lady from Halt and Catch Fire in it.

Well worth a watch.

Jiu-Jitsu. Lots (and lots) of fighting, with a bit of plot squeezed in occasionally. But not if it gets in the way of the fighting. Nic Cage gets to pop up and be unhinged, and the bad guy can fire ninja stars (albeit with an astonishing miss rate) and burn things when he wants, which makes it a bit of a mystery when he's bested. Nice comic-strip links. But it's terrible, obviously.

We watched Into The Spiderverse, which I enjoyed a lot more than I thought I would. The distinction between all the spider-folk is really good, and there’s a good number of laugh out loud moments.

Neve became obsessed with this movie last Christmas so it's never been out of rotation in this house. At one point it could be on three times in one day. I'm glad the newest version is good, I never liked any of the earlier ones but the cartoon one is lovely.

I put it on because Darwin loves the previous Dr Seuss film from the same team that made it; The Lorax. The (new) Grinch is lovely, but I’d say The Lorax is lovelier still, and would thoroughly recommend it if you don’t also have that on rotation. We are watching The Grinch again today :D

Indeed; I don’t ‘know’ or have an interest in any of the superhero stuff either, but watched it quite happily.

We watched something surprisingly brilliant the other day.

Rango.

Looks absolutely incredible and is very much a film that adults and kids will enjoy (though perhaps not tiny kids, there is violence in it). There's a real Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath vibe to it, too.

Though you need to be willing to watch something with Depp in it.
