    I watched 'The Rhythm Section' last night....... initial thoughts were that it dragged a bit in places. It also required some large leaps of faith in the narrative and some of the screenplay was somewhat predictable & hackneyed.
    That said my overall thoughts were that it wasn't terrible but I wouldn't ever watch it again. So what's it doing in this thread then? Well, on balance, I thought it was better than crap and therefore good....but only just.

    REVOLUTIONARY ROAD

    Rather splendid tale with Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet; it certainly ain't Titanic 2 (even though Kathy Bates is in it too)

    Americans might love the NY swagger and swearing and shouting. I dont. The film was far too shouty and sweary.

    But well made and Julia Fox as his attractive mistress was very good. You would have thought she was just a sex bomb out to catch a rich guy but she was much more than that. She actually loved that idiot Adam Sandlers character. I felt for her.

    Eye for an Eye.

    On netflix, spanish film. Cool revenge flick but you realise at the end that someone else had a better revenge.

    Now this is the first film that has a 2 second shot of something that will make you gag and retch. Never seen before. Towards the end and of no consequence to the film. But they showed it. Can never be unseen.

    And its not the head in toilet scene.

    Great acting.

    Saw a Korean film at the cinema called Parasite last week. If you don’t mind subtitles, I recommend it highly!

    Another film I caught for the first time in about a decade, 48 Hours, with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy. Forgotten how good that was!

    Yes. Quite "different" and very well done.

    That director does different very well

    Snowpiercer is his effort too. Watch it if you can. Cracking film.

    The Gentlemen. Tip-top entertainment. Great cast and Guy Ritchie's gift for dialogue is a winning combination.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Uncut Gems. It isn’t particularly ‘enjoyable’ to watch, but I found it absolutely compulsive viewing. It’s stressful, intense and rather exhausting - but it’s also one of the most intensely watchable films of the last few years.

    Watched this last night. The plot is poor and makes no sense in places but the visual are excellent. I thought that the moon buggy chase scene / fight were amazing. I'm going to watch it again tonight just for the special effects.

    It's a movie that really benefits from being watched in the cinema. I agree that the plot is poor. It does look and sound lovely, there are some really beautiful 2001-esque scenes.

    If you're like me and a die hard Eastwood fan it's also very hard to see the guy as he is now, think of Eastwood and you think Dirty Harry and not some very frail elderly gentleman.
    Watched this last night, very watchable and enjoyable.

    It's been a while, but it's a good movie.

    About Eastwood's 'frail' posture (as FFF wrote): I think it's good. He looks old but healthy, his mental state is perfect as well. What's more, he does look his age. Not like some desperately trying to look (and act) younger. I admire that in him. And he's now playing the roles that fit him: a grandfather-like person. Sometimes 'tough', (Gran Torino) and sometimes making the best of his life (Mule).

    If you haven't aleady you should check out the Safdie brothers previous work, 'Good Times'. I think it's still available on Netflix.

    I saw Parasite yesterday on the strength of its virtual Oscars sweep Sunday night. I certainly had my doubts going in, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find it an excellent and quite engaging film. Other than the subtitles (which I personally don't mind), the movie was very "Western." It could have been set in New York, London, Paris, etc. with nary a change.

    Excellent and recommended.

    I really enjoyed Last Breath on Netflix last night.

    It is reconstructed documentary using actual footage of North Sea saturation divers and a tragic accident.

    It is around 90mins but I was riveted

    It's wonderfully atmospheric and the acting is so good it feels like you're watching what really occurred, rather than a film.

    Yes. Very well done. As a certified claustrophobic :), I had a hard time watching it.

    Looking forward for this movie for kids:

    "Sonic the Hedgehog" is racing to a dominant $55 million opening at 3,150 North American locations during the four-day President's Day weekend in a launch that's above forecasts, early estimates showed Friday. Read more...

    Watched uncut gems last night.

    Not sure if I liked it or not. Very fast all the way through but kept me hooked

    Really enjoyed it. A bit of a reverse whodunit.

    Parasite

    An utter masterpiece. Hands down the best film I've seen in the past 6 months

    Katherine Johnson died today at 101.

    She was undoubtedly worthy of a RIP thread, but most people would have no idea of who she was.

    So instead I strongly recommend you watch Theodore Melfi's "Hidden Figures"



    You can read a proper obituary here.

    But go and watch the movie. Those ladies deserve it.

    Watched it with the kids yesterday, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Make sure you stay for the ‘secret’ scene halfway through the end credits.

    Also watched ‘Fisherman’s friends’ about the Cornish sea shanty group, a really nice film. ( Prime I think it was on)
    Cheers..

    I've just returned from The Gentlemen. Wow! That was good. Right on the top-shelf next to Snatch and Lock Stock.
