    If you liked that, watch Dogtooth by the same director. Darker and more bizarre than The Lobster - almost a bit uncomfortable tbh.

    I’ve not seen Alps or his latest one, but he’s clearly working on a slightly different wavelength to the rest of us.

    Hostiles

    'Hostiles', starring Christian Bale. Just came out at the cinema and it's an excellent Western - but not a typical one. Slow-burn, gritty, moving and intermittently violent drama. Excellent script, acting, cinematography. 8/10 easily.

    About to watch now. £4.49 on Prime and £5.49 on iTunes for rental. The cheek of Apple!

    Watched Logan Lucky (not to be confused with the wolverine version). Wasn’t expecting much but ended up enjoying it. Would rate it a 7 or 8

    It's after 1 a.m. in San Diego and I'm watching Shaun of the Dead. I never get tired of watching this classic!

    Watched Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, brilliant film with some very good acting, great story and comedy.

    I've watched a few lately:

    Just watch The Darkest Hour. It's a good watch with first class acting. But can't say it'd be a film I would watch again.

    Bridge of Spies was a fantastic film, Tom Hanks nailed it again!

    Two Guns was a tongue and cheek action comedy that was light hearted and enjoyable to watch.

    The fight scenes were stilted and wooden, with the fight participants almost seeming to pause in position before their opposite number throws the next badly-choreographed punch. This was held up as a positive by some online review; credit for staying away from the fast cuts most action movies employ. But then this highlighted WHY most action movies employ fast cuts in fight scenes; choreographed fights just don't look realistic, particularly with a guy so inexperienced and awkward as VV. The writing was on the wall 5 minutes in when VV, supposedly a former boxer threw punches at a car like he'd only just discovered he could move his hands in front of him, clearly preferring to leave his big ham shanks straight down by his side like the giant goon he is.

    The Red Leaf prison was hilariously bad, particularly given that the previous prison was set in something resembling reality. I know, I know, suspend disbelief for the movies, but the progression of the story was all so choppy and uneven the movie itself was responsible for the lack of suspension of disbelief.

    Anyway, I didn't like it.
    Well said. My girlfriend BOUGHT it on DVD for us to watch over the christmas holiday... poop.

    Drove past here earlier today on the way home from a skiing trip.



    Only fitting that I should be settling down at home now with a nice single malt to watch one of my favourite films.



    Cheers

    Just watched The Man With The Iron Heart. One of a glut of recent films made about the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in Prague. Excellent film. Based on HHhH and well worth a viewing.

    Top notch, both very dark and funny.

    Victoria and Abdul, the wife wanted to watch it, I wasn't bothered at all, but i ended up watching every minute of it, it was very good.

  14. #4364
    Atomic Blonde last night. Excellent so long as you keep in mind that it's adapted from a graphic novel. I'd imagine that without that you'd wonder why Charlize Theron was dressed as she was and why certain fight scenes owed a lot to Kill Bill.

    Went to see The Darkest Hour last night. Excellent. And lily james very easy on the eye

  16. #4366
    Detroit was excellent (and cetainly the events were not one of America's finer moments).

    Battle of the Sexes was also quite good.

    Have just looked up Dogtooth following up your suggestion.
    Immediately realised that I had watched it years a go late at night.
    It made a real impression on me then, ad I still remember every detail vividly. Which is rare for me.
    Hadn't made the connection with The Lobster so thank you very much.
    I will now look up the rest of this director's back catalogue as he certainly seems to have a distinct style. Which is why I enjoy others who plough a slightly different path, such as Werner Herzog or Wes Anderson.

    Watched Hounds Of Love last night. Extremely uncomfortable viewing, but I thought it was an excellent film. Based on a true story that has some horrific facts associated with it. The ending is really quite something.

    Watched 'dead man's shoes' last night after a friend recommended it. Typical low cost uk film but enjoyable and worth a watch

    'Miss Sloane' a very enjoyable political romp, well worth a view.

    Watched "GET OUT" last night...

    https://youtu.be/DzfpyUB60YY

    Very impressed with it. Very tense, albeit not particular plot enriched. But a very good movie nevertheless....

    'It follows' - a highly recommended horror film with a new twist on what is a very tired genre...

    While I think about it - i've been thinking about getting on the Star Wars hype train (having never watched any of the films).

    So which order should I watch them in? Release date? Or chronological order?

    Neither, machete order for the first 6, so IV, V, II, III, VI, then force awakens and last jedi, Rogue 1 is a stand alone film that can be watched anytime after IV

    I'm not sure if I'm embarrassed by this or not?! I enjoyed watching Bright on Netflix. Will Smith doing his best character but with Orc and Elves. Strange concept but it worked and the production levels were very high.

    THANK YOU!

    As someone who hasn't seen any Star Wars movie I've often asked people what order I should watch them in. I'm going to try this!

    Scarface e is on ITV4 right now. One of the best films ever. Al Pacino was cast so well in the role of Tony Montana.

    I watched Hacksaw Ridge on Netflix last night. Superb film, I really enjoyed it.

    Watched Dunkirk recently too - really struggled with it. Thought it was rather crap to be honest

    Paddington 2 is a great film and thoroughly deserves it's 100% rating on Rottentomatoes.

    On Netflix, you can still catch Bone Tomahawk, a truly genre bending western with Kurt Russel. Don't read about it; just watch it.

    Kaleidoscope

    Just saw this today:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5634088/

    With Toby Jones and Anne Reid, pretty good, if unusual taut thriller type film.

    The two leads were both as excellent as you would expect and who would have thought Anne Reid could be frightening?

    Hugo, what a cracking watch. I recorded it over Christmas for the kids but we all sat down and watched it on Sunday.

    Ben Kingsley and Sacha Baron Cohen were both excellent in it I thought, and Chloe Moretz' British accent had me googling to make sure I had her nationality right (I did, she's American).

    My first visit to Paris was with my first wife. Must have been the early 80s. The Palais the Chaillot (Place Trocadéro) housed the Musee Henri Langois in the Basement. With the items like they are shown in this movie. Sadly a fire demolished the Musee in 97.

    It was great to see all those 'props' reused in Hugo!

    I didn't like it much. Sam Rockwell was very good in it but there weren't a lot of sympathetic characters.

    I've just been watching 'Good Time' on Netflix and it is very badly named.
