Review the most recent film you've seen
#1
So come on budding Barry Normans


Doesn't have to be a new release at the cinema (remember them ??).  Could have been on Talking Pictures TV or anything..

Artemis Fowl (2020)



As someone who's read all the books, this was a terrible movie and I wondered how badly Dame Judi Dench needs money to agree to be in it (it's not a starring role).
I guess the 4.1 rating on imdb says a lot.

Nevertheless, I know that films based on books should not be judged based on the book and instead should be judged on their own merits.
So, it was OK. I liked the special effects and didn't particularly hate any of the actors. 
The story line though was a mess, with characters popping up here and there and lots of motivations didn't make any sense.
Kenneth Branagh is a great director but possibly not for this type of movie. I also hated his "Murder on the Orient Express" but liked "Thor" which seems a similar type of film, so I had expected something better.
This is my sig, it's the only one of its kind

I made my return to Cineworld yesterday and am refusing to watch the plethora of old stuff being shown at the moment.

Difficult to find new films because distributors are holding back because so few people are going to the cinema at the moment but I did get to see Proxima yesterday.

Right. Not at all sure what this film was trying to achieve. Basically it follows the changing relationship between a soon-to-be astronaught and her Young daughter.

It gets across the angst and the stress that both endure during the course of her training, very well but I'm not sure it does much else and you're kind of left wondering "what was the point?" at the end of it.

I'm a keen cinema visitor, how did you get on wearing a mask for the entire visit?

It was a bit oppressive but you do get used to them.

What annoys me is seeing the number of people surrounding me who do not bother  Angry

There's supposed to be a local lockdown in place here, but from what I can see absolutely nobody is taking a blind bit of notice of it.

Although I'm not that surprised.

- You can't have a family member come visit you, but you can go to a packed pub, restaurant or beach
- Its been revealed that since all this started only 10 people have been 'done' by the rozzers for lockdown breaching.

ie. Its an utter shambles.

The invisible Man 2020.

I really liked it. One of the better films I've seen this year. Gripping and exciting.

10/10

I watched Upgrade on Netflix the other day, which has the same director as The Invisible Man, and the same low budget. The plot for Upgrade sounds a bit cliche but it was much better than I expected, and looked quite stylish considering the budget.

Project Power (Netflix)

The main reason I watch this is because of Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It's great to see him return to the big screen. He has a scene showing his dad bod too.

As for the movie, it's not bad. It's a good time killer. You can tell the film makers like superhero movies as they borrowed the likes of "Human Torch" "Iceman" "Hulk" etc. The "taking a pill to give you power" concept is not new and is CGI is only ok. But as I said, I watched it mainly because of JGL.  Tongue

I quite enjoyed this movie, firstly I'm a big fan of Steve Carrell, it's an enjoyable, funny watch.  With a surprising twist!

I bloody love Talking Pictures TV,  Approve

Finally got to see Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean about 30 years after I originally wanted to see it. Brilliant movie, Cher can really act & the sex-change story-line is handled really well (& brilliantly played by Karen Black),

Highly recommended,

Palm Springs
A time-loop movie like Groundhog Day. Entertaining provided you like Andy Samberg. There were some funny scenes and the actors did a good job.

Project Power
Loved this but then I love almost everything Joseph Gordon-Levitt does. This had great performances and a good storyline.

INTO THE DARK: Midnight Kiss



While I'm not a huge fan of HULU's Into the DARK series the concept at least is very interesting. Every month a holiday is put in the limelight and celebrated with a 90 min horror movie. On occasion these films turn out to be quite good.

For New Years' I was delighted to learn that HULU in collaboration with BLUMHOUSE wanted to tackle the Queer Slasher. This is a sub genre that doesn't have all that many entries and they are rarely successful enough to be memorable with a few notable exceptions: "Stranger By the Lake" ; "Hellbent" ; "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge" ; "Knife + Heart"

So I was very curious about MIDNIGHT KISS and a bit worried at the same time. I ended up liking the feature though, in hindsight i needn't have worried if you look at the behind the scenes. Though BLUMHOUSE doesn't always deliver they have style and aren't afraid to take risks now and again. They went all out Queer for the making of this particular film and did so by design. The script was penned by OUT screenwriter Erlingur Thoroddson (know for RIFT 2017) Directed by GAY Director Carter Smith (the RUINS; Simon Marks Is Dead ;Bugcrush) Some of the cast are out as well Scott Evans (yes Captain America's brother) Augustus Prew (Prison Break ) Adam Faison (Everything's Gonna be OK) Lukas Gage (Love Victor ;Veronica Mars)

The film itself is a bland of the good ol slasher and relationship drama. You'll love some of these characters and despise others but it's a fun ride for sure, even if you can guess where it's going before the blood-spattered last act. The look is very sleek and fresh the score and the soundtrack complement the feature very well and the acting is good. O did I mention the nudity cause there's a fair bit of that as well.Give this film a go.

As a result of the lockdown, my cinema has been showing some classic films.

Yesterday I got to see The Karate Kid from 1984. I wasn't seeing it for the first time but was blown away when I left the cinema and found out Ralph Macchio was 22 when they filmed it.

I watched this because someone posted caps on the old forum, I think.

Good performances by the actors but the script was so-so. Lots of youtube comments about Draco and Harry fan-fiction, which was to be expected for a movie in which Felton strenuously denies being gay despite being gay.
The script uses the close-proximity trope as planned out from beyond the grave. Both siblings have lots of issues but I like that they at least attempt to talk honestly about them. Very much open-ended

Not a new film, bust landed on Netflix recently and scores quite highly on IMDB.  I did enjoy this film, very tense for the first half but had a good pace to it and the acting was good too.  Believable too, this could happen in real life! Worth a watch  Approve

Monsoon
Directed by Hong Khaou
Stars Henry Golding, Parker Sawyers, David Tran and Molly Harris

The file takes its time to tell you the story about Kit (Henry Golding), a British-Vietnamese immigrant returning "home" after 30 years. It's a journey to discover himself, and the city's past and present. Kit is gay, but it's not at all a deciding factor of who he is.

Henry Golding has proven himself to be not just a Hollywood boyfriend material leading man. His acting is subtle yet powerful, leading you to feel what his character is going through.






Babyteeth
Directed by Shannon Murphy
Stars Eliza Scanlen, Toby Wallace
Award: Toby Wallace - Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor or Actress 

It's a coming of age story about Milla (Eliza Scanlen) who is dying from cancer. She met Moses (Toby Wallace), an older teen with a drug problem who has been kicked out of his home. It is not a typical "dying girl has her first love" kind of movie like The Fault in Our Stars. Her being terminally ill is never a central theme of the movie. There wasn't even any scene set in the hospital.

Tody Wallace (Netflix - The Society) has a strong screen presence. He is just naturally charming. He has great chemistry with  Eliza Scanlen (Little Women). Shannon Murphy's (Killing Eve) directing is powerful yet subtle.
