I liked Jumanji! Thought Jack Black played his part well - not that it's subtle or anything, but good. Made me laugh. Only thing I found annoying was casting Kiwi Rhys Darby as an Englishman. He has a good stab at the accent, then the Kiwi I's snick through, yis they do. Pointless.

Kevin Hart is fucking awful. That's not a comment on anything except Kevin Hart. And the morons that keep casting him in stuff. Every time he opens his stupid squeaky little mouth I want to find him and murder him.

The rest of Jumanji was pretty awesome. Bearing in mind that anything which mixes the concepts of 'American' and 'comedy' is already on my shit list even conceptually. It worked; it just did. Talented cast and good script. :shrug:

Yeah, I liked Jumanji 2. Kevin Hart was a bit annoying, but not as much as he usually is. It's only the third Jack Black film I've seen where he doesn't annoy the piss out of me. Gillan was entertaining enough, and The Rock just smashed it as he always does. Particularly the smouldering intensity.

My only nitpick is that
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
going by what was presented to us, the entire of the third act was unnecessary - they literally just had a helicopter and now needed to get to the top of a tall statue, yet decided to go through the whole final task sort of thing. If they'd put in a line about how it had run out of fuel or was damaged or something that'd be better.

That said, video games aren't shy of putting arbitrary bullshit restrictions on you like that, and it's riffing off video games, so whatever.


Watched the original Jumanji on Friday night. Have never seen it before. Man, some of the CGI/puppetry really doesn't age well - particularly the spiders, which were just fucking comical. Perhaps that was the point.

Looking at the stuff he's acted in, I've only seen Enemy of the State, Demolition Man, Anchorman and the X-Files episode and I don't remember him in any of them, so it's odd that I still find him annoying. Maybe it's the Tenacious D stuff.

Tropic Thunder and Enemy of the State.

I wasn't aware he was in Demolition Man.

I too enjoyed Jumanji and I can't stand Jack Black. He was OK in this.

Jack Black is amazing in films where all he has to play is Jack Black.

This is promising. HBO + Michael Shannon + Good Book.

Can't go wrong there.

I watched Jigsaw. It’s terrible.

If you must watch a Saw film just watch 1 & 2 and pretend they decided to end it there.

3 was pretty good and from memory 6 was quite clever and surprising in delivering a sort of social message about the health care industry in the USA, 4 and 5 I'm hard pushed to remember anything much positive about though.

1 and 2 are indeed the best.

I like all the Saw films, but I'd be hard-pushed to tell you which one was which. I'd heard Jigsaw was bad though, so I'll just pretend that doesn't exist.

'No Good Dead' was added to Netflix the other day. Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson and just 1 hour 24 in length, so I was expecting a thriller that didn't hang about. However, the middle bit, which I'm guessing was supposed to build tension, bored the hell out of me. By the time the climax of film came around, I'd lost interest.

I've seen couple of films recently.

First was All The Money In The World. It's a good movie and if you're unaware of the life of J Paul Getty, he doesn't come across as very pleasant. Christoper Plummer does a fantastic job. It's well acted, well written and quite dispiriting on the whole human nature front, largely. It's based on true events. In the 70s, Getty's grandson was kidnapped in Italy and held for ransom. Getty refused to pay. What is astonishing, is the length of time this whole debacle took to resolve.

Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
This is a very good film, with a cracking script and brilliant acting from all the cast. It's more a tragicomedy than the trailer suggests and is genuinely upsetting as well as laugh out loud funny. It's the same writer/director as In Bruges and The Guard, but this is a more measured film and expects you to pay for the laughs with some bitter reflection.

Dunkirk - a lot better than I'd thought it would be, even if in some scenes the lack of scale made it seem a little like a budget made for TV effort.

Well not quite - they are two brothers Martin, (In Bruges) and John (The Guard) McDonagh.

Ooh, yeah. I knew there were two brothers both writer/director. Martin made this one.

This is a film that really needed to be seen on IMAX.
