Tomorrow War is a film that has some good CGI, which is the best thing I can say about it. The films is properly finished after an hour, and it was ok-ish I guess but stupid, but then they construct some far less interesting drama to make it last another hour and you might as well turn off there and then because how you think it’ll end, is how it ends. Just a dumb, dumb film that’s dumb.

3/10 - for the premise and CGI monsters (that’s one for the premise that they fail to do anything with and two for the monsters, despite them just being the usual swarm of CGI drones at a few points)

Venom was really good fun, I enjoyed it far more than I thought I was going to. Tom Hardy is a good actor and I like him. Would recommend, and am keen for the sequel.

I also watched Polar through the net-of-flicks; Mads Mikkelson is a good actor and I like him, but this film seemed unsure whether it was trying to be gritty and darkly violent or wacky and off-beat. I only realised after the film had finished (when I was reading the trivia on Imdb, because I don't feel like the viewing experience is complete until I've done that part) that it was from a comic graphic novel. It was OK but would probably not recommend.

Yes, Russell looks up the IMDB for every film he watches immediately after watching it, too.

I don't need IMDB, my missus is compelled to interject even if it's in the middle of a crucial scene if that's when she realises what it was that we've seen them in before. >:(

I watched The Tomorrow War.

I'll say this, it was 'better' than Army of the Dead.

That is all.

Actually the alien designs were very good.

That is all, now.

Started watching a bit of this last night in bed. Fell asleep before I even saw an alien.

I'm much better at the 'what else have they been in' game than Lady T. Using IMDB for that is only an option once we have both given up.

I also like referring to characters by the name of other characters that the actor has portrayed (X-men for example becomes about Jean-Luc and Gandalf) when Lady T asks 'what's going on?'. I'm pretty sure she has not laughed even once at this but I am not going to stop doing it.

Black Widow: certified, goood. Last time I saw Florence Pugh was in Little Women. She's at least as good here - brilliant.

The Tomorrow War is great, just turn your brain off at the door and enjoy what is a very well put together film with a likeable cast of characters, some great action setpieces, fantastic alien design, and enough of its tongue in its cheek (and some genuinely funny lines) to get away with how outrageously stupid it is.

698/1000

Yeah I saw the rest of it yesterday. Ended up fast forwarding some bits and nodding off briefly in others. It was sort of okay. There's probably a half decent 90 minute film in there.

My Marvel mad daughter and I will no doubt watch this over the weekend. Oh and last nights Loki that I skipped due to the kicking game.

Don’t think I’ve seen her in anything else but she was great. Loved the dynamic between her and BW.

Being in an actual cinema again was great too. Only ‘bout 30 people in an IMAX screen so no safety concerns.

You should watch the little drummer girl. Top notch spy TV.

Fear Street: Part 1: 1994? Weak Street, more like.

A rather atypical and boring slasher flick from Netflix. Apart from one rather lovely death sequence with a bread slicer.

“Land of the Dead (also known as George A. Romero's Land of the Dead) is a 2005 post-apocalyptic horror film written and directed by George A. Romero” says Wikipedia. What it doesn’t tell you is that it’s a bag of shit.

The plus side of it being set in the 90s - lots of music I recognised. Part 2 at least adds some clarity to the overall story. Last part is released in a couple of days, so it'll be interesting to see how it rounds things off.

Lady T's choice: The Maiden Heist, which has some big names playing the parts of old dudes that love some art so much that they decide to steal it. I felt like Morgan Freeman and Christopher Walken started out trying to have some fun but then kind of just phoned it in.

It wasn't bad but just.... a bit boring. I'm not sure I like whimsical-farce style that this was presented in. But I liked the end.

There is a nude scene with William H Macy. I was totally not expecting him to be so buff and muscular.

I’m not saying that Black Widow is a bad film, per se, but fuck me it’s boring. The fake “family” storyline just didn’t resonate with me at all. The “comedy” is substandard and unless you’re really into the new characters most of the comedy won’t land (I wasn’t particularly into any of them at all. Fat dad was alright I guess; but the comedy sister wasn’t hitting for me at all. I don’t give a shit about how many pockets she has… etc).

And, fuck me, it doesn’t really actually start until 1 hr and 25 minutes into the bloody thing. There’s a couple of good action sequences and a few hand to hand combat sequences that looked great if I could see the pissing things with the bloody fast cuts (nothing Taken 2/3/Bourne ridiculous though).

And fucking fuck me sideways, Black Widow is by far the blandest thing about the film. I’m sorry, but I was a big fan of her in previous films but this entire film seemed unnecessary. Bee Dub seems like she’s post-snap miserable throughout the entire film.

Really disappointed.

4/10
