I watched Dune: Part 2 too. Man alive the audio in IMAX was so fucking groovy. Looked nice too. I’ve never been a Dune book fan, mind, and never played the Amiga game either. Still, I enjoyed the first film a lot and it won me over by the end. Bit slow to get moving, mind. And I wanted more of a “Helms Deep” battle at the end after waiting so fucking long.


Nope, a duel between les infants terribles.

But I was slightly irritated that Jessica's daughter hadn't been born and therefore this climax was absent

Seize Them was clearly made on a very low budget but made us laugh quite a bit.

Aimee Lou Wood could do a fine live action version of Bean from disenchantment.

My ex is in Sieze Them, shaking a pitchfork in the background. Apparently Jessica Hynes is lovely and Nick Frost is an absolute chuffing unit.

I'm glad to hear that about Jessica Hynes as I've had a crush on her for a long time.

This was very much my feelings on the matter.

Road House. I've never seen the original, or I might have thought this a bit pointless. As it is, it's fun. Connor McGregor is terrifying and looks like he's having fun. Frankly, who'd stop him? Jake Gueeelenhaaala is buff and convincing and it all rolls by prettily. I managed to only say "Road house!" in my best Peter Griffin voice a few times.

I'm going to watch the original some time soon and test my hypothesis.

I rented Roadhouse (the original) from Selecta Video (which closed a couple of years after Blockbusters opened up around the corner) in the early 90s.

I don't think I've watched it again since then, and I can't really remember much about what happened in it, I had heard bad things about the remake, so I have not gone out of my way to watch it.

I am not sure I added much to the conversation here, sorry.

Expend4bles

Oh my god, the first 45 minutes are absolutely shit.

Obvious stunt doubles, bits where it looks like they had to think about what the next line was, poor dialogue, shocking CGI, awful acting, editing and direction.

It gets better in the second half, but not by much.

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
and the 'twist' is so bloody obvious


Unless that appeals to you, then I wouldn't bother, it felt like An Asylum level film, (Sharknado, Atlantic Rim, etc) but with actual proper actors.

Civil War

Fucking hell. No, seriously, I mean it. Fucking. Hell. An incredible movie, and one that should act as a stark warning. I was on the edge of my seat for pretty much the whole runtime, and there's one scene in particular that just... the tension was off the fucking charts.

Fucking hell.

I'm not spoilering this, because no-one should watch it. No really, you shouldn't watch it.

Rebel moon 2 doubles down on mashing together stolen tropes and pastiches (it genuinely rips off Aliens and Alien Resurrection final scenes for its final scenes, having run out Star Wars) and somehow Netflix still let Snyder end with trying to set up a third part.

This has to be the end of his career, it's almost the worst film I've ever watched. Scratch that. I can't think of a worse film I've ever watched.

It took me 3 sittings to get through the first part of it.

Man alive Expend4bles is fucking terrible. The dialogue is hilariously bad, the cast has no chemistry whatsoever and the whole film appears to have been made on more green screens than the Star Wars prequels.

I’m sure I watched a leaked version of one of the Expendables where the CG hadn’t been done properly. It’s like watching that again.

I don’t know how you get the lead guy from The Raid (soz I don’t know his name) and Tony Jaa and just don’t fucking use them either! And why 50 Cent is here, I don’t know. Maybe to get clearance on the one time they used his song?!

Christ, the action is awful (apart from a few Jason Statham bits, mind) and this can’t even lick John Wick’s boots. And the end? The fucking end. Jesus pissing Christ. It was coming a mile off. My eyeballs rolling in their sockets were probably audible to my neighbours mowing the lawn outside.

Mind you, Megan Fox’s lack of a bra in a white vest kinda made up for the 1 hour and 40 minutes wasted.

Oh and I watched Palm Spring with Andy Samburg. It’s a Groundhog Day rip off that’s good for 40 minutes and then it’s shit. The love interest literally learns quantum physics. All of it.

I had a quick look on Wikipedia, and Stallone was involved with the directing/writing of the first 3 films, but not this last one, I have no idea if that contributes to how awful the film is.

:this:

That was a stunningly good bit of cinema. Absolutely perfect from start to finish. I think I stopped breathing for about an hour.

Very effective use of music, too.

I’ve watched Civil War too. I don’t know what you lot were watching but I thought it was poorly paced, had shit CG and I didn’t buy Tony Starks motivation.

Ho ho, only kidding, it was seriously excellent. My kind of thing through and through. I’m not sure it was worth the IMAX price of admission… although the loud noises scarred the piss out of audience and made me jump on a couple of occasions. It did look gorgeous though. It had a no frills beauty and framing.

Couple of things though. Man alive, was the soundtrack fucking GREAT! There weren’t many songs but each one really elevated each sequence they accompanied and drove it forward like a fucking truck.

But the one problem I had with it was the young photographer. I’m not sure the actress was the right choice for a variety of reasons although she gave a decent performance. But I just didn’t like how cliche the corridor fight at the end was. Everything before that was so grounded and realistic and that felt contrived. I’d have been much happier if that shoot out ended with some kind of sudden unexpected violence rather than

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
running into the middle of a hallway in a shoot out to take a photograph of…well, no one was there at the time so absolutely fucking nothing. Or maybe she wanted a photograph of the next guy to come round the door and shoot her in the face like the big bullseye she was. I get she was supposed to be showing how reckless she was, but she was never suicidal.


Anyway, it just rubbed me up the wrong way ever so slightly in what was otherwise a thoroughly excellent film that I hope gets remembered around Oscar time. There’s plenty to celebrate here.

And that ending was so fucking satisfying. I sat watching the titles roll to see the photograph developed. Really clever stuff.

The same actress is going to be in Alien: Romulus, and I'm cautiously optimistic.

Money Plane: knows what it is,.entertaining enough

Legend: thinks it is way cooler than it is, Hardy does a decent job. Watch Money Plane instead.

Saw X is a movie.

I’ve seen some saying “it’s the best since Saw 2!!!” and “ZOMG it’s more focussed on Jigsaw as a character and explores his motivations and it’s not really about the killings!!!!”

All a crock of shit. It’s poorly acted, boring, trite nonsense. It’s the usual fare but all the deaths are at the end…Like, a fucking hour into the thing. It’s not really creative either and just a bit shit. Mind you, the two actual death machines are squimishly funny…well, not the torture but the reaction of the actors.

Overall: one bag of shit.

Watched The Outwaters on Shudder last night. A found footage film where a bunch of new age hippy types go to the desert to shoot a video and things go all nasty.

There is a kernel of a good film in here but this isn't it...and it doesn't need nearly two hours to tell it, honestly a tight 80 minutes would have sufficed. Some nice visuals and un-nerving moments in it (the screaming worms being a standout) but not enough to recommend it. Having said that, the song 'Red Hands' that plays over the end credits is a belter.

I’m off to see The Phantom Menace at the cinema tonight. 25 years since it came out, and 25.3 years since I first saw it courtesy of a pirate copy on VHS.

I was working at Tandy at the time, and used some of the store’s VCRs to make a few copies.

Late Night with the Devil was entertaining and didn't outstay its welcome.

Host is still my favorite Shudder movie, though.
