    Went to see 1917. Thought it was very good until the mid film plot twist, thought after that it became a bit unbelievable tbh.

    It's pretty much the same thing, but with Margot Robbie in full Pauline Quirk makeup and fat suit.

    Watched Joker last night, I’d stayed well away from any reviews and trailers so didn’t know what to expect. Thought it was brilliant, really well acted by Phoenix and very well paced. Won’t throw any spoilers out but if there are any posters who are into their Batman stuff it’s a must watch even though it doesn’t fall in with the canon.

    I watched the Joker the weekend too, absolutely brilliant film. Joaquin Phoenix plays a very powerful role, the story resonates well with modern issues. There was the right mix to stop it becoming too uncomfortable to watch.

    If you enjoyed that watch The Dark Knight, Ledger's performance was equally as good. Worth watching for that alone.

    Yep. Kinda goes nowhere for a couple of hours and ends with a decent 10 minutes.

    Terminator: Dark Fate. 1 and 2 were miles better. Impressed with how they did the opening sequence though.

    I thought Dark Fate promised much but turned into a steaming pile of CGI in the end. Not as bad as the Predator which is probably one of the worst films I've ever seen.

    Watched 1917, Shazam, Captain Marvel, The Sister Brothers and Pi which were all excellent in their own way.
    Nothing to see here...... can't offend sensitive souls.

    Dark Fate was ok, and if if was a standalone film might be more than ok. Its a pale shadow of 1 & 2 (less said about the rest the better).

    Knives Out was great fun. Daniel Craig's accent is worth listening to on its own.

    No thanks on the Meg Paul, mental scarring isn't that good for you I hear.

    I got dragged to the cinema to watch that. Awful doesn’t do it justice.

    The Meg is just staggeringly bad. I mean, it makes Sharknado look like Dr Zhivago.

    Yeah, watched it at the weeked and was disappointed.

    Didn't feel like a Tarantino movie at all. Very slow paced, and none of the usual witty script.

    Also, why did he completely re-write what happened in the Tate murder?

    It's hilarious - try playing the 'what accent is Jason Statham attempting during this scene?' game.

    The books are even more batshit crazy - particularly the 2nd one. I was disappointed that they didn't follow them more closely.

    So does The Meg! It just doesn't do it as well.

    You see that is the part that annoyed me the most, was it taking itself seriously or not ?

    Of course it wasn't!! Every scene with Rainn Wilson should have told you that.

    Yeah it's really weird isn't it? It's like a teenage fanboys fantasy revenge. Like Chris Nolan making a film about Fred West where he gets killed by James Bond. Bizarre. In really poor taste as well.

    Said the same to the missus. Imagine being Roman Polanski or a relative of Sharon Tate and watching that. What was Tarantino trying to say?

    I think they'd have been much more upset if he'd have shown the true murders in their grizzly realism.
    Oh my god! Whitney's dead? How's Michael Jackson taking it?

    Isn't that the whole point though? How many Hollywood films have been produced over the years where the writers have demonstrated 'poetic licence'?

    Brightburn. Superhero/horror hybrid that I didn’t know what to make of from reviews but I really enjoyed it, something really different. Don’t be put off by the superhero tag either, while the origin of the main character is a direct rip off of Superman it’s nothing like a superhero film at all, more horror than anything else but that’s only down to the gore. Give it a watch.
