I had it chalked alongside his vote for Barney's Version as being excellent advice.

THis sat on my side for a couple of weeks. It looks awful. The box is yellow and the front of it resembles some kind of rom-com.
Reading the synopsis doesn't make it look any better either. Plus its over 2 hours long. Everytime I looked at the case I hate Bodhi for making me buy it.

ANyway I watched it at the weekend and it was fcuking brilliant. Definite 8.5/10 - maybe even a 9. I cant even explain what it was about and there would be no point because it would sound shit if I did.
Everyone try and watch this. Top recommendation.

Oh, I knew I was going to like it when the opening scene was him pissed phoning his ex wife at 3am

Barney (to new husband): Hello Brett, put my wife on.
Brett: No Barney, she's asleep and she's not your wife and its 3 am. Go away.
Barnay: Fair enough. Its just I came across all these old naked photos of her and was wondering if she wanted them. COme to think of it-do you want them so you can see what she looked like in her prime?

Excellent character, as are they all. Massive recommendation


I watched this at the weekend, great film.

Barney Panofsky: Don't ever tell my father what he can or cannot do again.
2nd Mrs. P's Father: He traumatized the Rabbi's wife...
Barney Panofsky: I don't care if he fingered her under the table. He's my father and he'll have your respect.

Hmmm, it sort of feels like you're trying to steal the glory from TT.

This is like Barneys version all over again. Basically, yes I recommended it. Once upon a time Damo also watched it but alongside a recommendation for Night of the Goat fcuking Radioactive Zombie.

We covered this at the time surely?
You recommend stuff, nobody takes any notice because you.
I recommend stuff and people know that it will be good. Hence it is MY recommendation. Not yours. Get over it.

Just taken the kids to Guardians of the Galaxy 2 because half term etc. Fun but felt a little contrived compared to the first. Having said that, if the first was a 9, then it's a solid 8.

Clown Ice Skater #4 wrote:John Wick 2. Annoyingly set up to be the start of many which will inevitably decline the same way Bourne has. I enjoyed it nonetheless.

He should deffo name his dog though.



Watched this at the weekend and I hated it sooooooo much.
I quite liked the first one for some reason, but it struck me that in making the second one they misjudged why people liked the first and made a whole film that was 120 minutes of cringe worthily choreographed fighting.
Every single scene was John Wick killing 15 heavily armed baddies in a fashion that was utterly reliant on them standing stock still whilst he killed them, or attacking him one at a time.
I watched the first couple of scenes with mild enjoyable bemusement whilst I waited for the actual film to start but it never did. He fought 15 baddies. Escaped the building to be confronted by 15 more baddies. Went home to find 15 more baddies at his hotel. Killed them and escaped to be met with 15 more baddies in the subway etc etc etc. This was the entire film and the fight scenes were so embarrassing that each mass-killing chipped away at my tolerance level until I was just praying for him to get shot in the face and die.
I am questioning whether I even liked the first one or have a false memory of it. I don't know.
Anyway 3/10

In other news I was pleasantly surprised by Trainspotting 2. I assumed that if I saw the first one again I wouldn't like it as an adult but I think I was probably wrong now. Managed to be oddly sentimental whilst violent and funny at the same time.
Really enjoyed 7.5/10

Similar views to TT (shudder) about John Wick 2. would probably give it 5 on the basis of it being enjoyable claptrap. Like they took the trailer for the first one and ran it in a loop to make a whole film.

And also agree with CIS4: there will be more and they will get worse and worse.

Two:

Headshot, which is little Iko Uwais of The Raid fighting loads of people. It is utterly brutal and desperately violent and grim and torturey, and so very very long. Two hours? Two and a half? Because of how these sorts of films work, I knew there was an inevitable final face off battle to come in the finale but I could barely be bothered to watch when it rolled around. So much fighting, all the time. I like watching films like this, but it's too much - it tips over into tedium and stodge. Diminishing returns as it ploughs along, each fight like a lovely sweet doughnut - one or two are a nice treat, but after ten you just don't want any more. 5.5

Wonder Woman, which is another superhero film, as you all know. This started fun and lively and like Headshot became more tedious and overblown as it rumbled on. Again, it's massively, challengingly long, two and a half hours. I got about an hour and a half in before I looked at my watch, and felt a pang of dismay once I'd worked out there was still another hour left. I struggled to stay awake during the final climactic battle where, of course, everything blows up for ages, and I think I might have lost my struggle at one point. Gal Gadot (say "dot") is very pretty though, and in a couple of brief shots is utterly beautiful. 5.9

I watched Jurassic World last night as it appeared on Netflix.

If you've ever watched any of the other Jurassic series you don't need to watch this.

5/10

3 Days To Kill concerns Kevin Costner's character trying to not be in the CIA any more while struggling to reconcile with his estranged teenage daughter. Time is short, as he has terminal cancer. It is a French action film that Luc Besson made up the story of and wrote, but couldn't be bothered to direct so he made the none-more-fatuously-named McG do it. It is a ridiculous film. It starts as an action thriller, becomes a drama - as Cost discovers his appartment now has a family of refugees squatting in it so he has to live with them! - then becomes a pseudo nonromcom between Cost and child, then remembers it's an action film and stuffs a car chase and gunfight into one scene.

It is very daft but Kevin Costner is good, old and a bit rubbish. Like all Luc Besson stories, it is plainly stupid and utter nonsense, but sadly without Besson's glossy direction zipping things along all of his 'Gallic flair' in the writing becomes blatantly foolish. I don't even understand why Amber Heard is in it, or what her character is trying to achieve, or why. Or in fact why any of it happens at all really.

Don't know, 4?

Two:

The Mechanic: Resurrection - which is a Stath sequel to the Stath original which is a remake of a Charles Bronson original original. It's rubbish. It looks like the first Stath film and sounds like the first Stath film, but everything has that weird Eurocheapness you can feel in DTStreaming sequels. It's the sort of film that ought to have Danny Trejo in it, except he's not in it. I fell asleep towards the end, and realised because the end made no sense. So I rewound it and watched the end again. It made no sense. 3

I Don't Feel At Home In This World Any More
- is the story of a nurse who is fed up with how people are more and more selfish and thoughtless, and then has her grandmother's silver stolen when her little house is burgled. I loved this film. It starts as an indie-esque mildly dark mild comedy, and follows its own path into different terrain. I hadn't heard of it before watching, and whilst I fully accept that no one will like it but me I urge you to try it. It is superbly acted, subtly and cleverly written, and delights in confounding your expectations about where it's going to go with its story, so that by the time it's finished you can't quite believe that's how it finished. 7.9

I've just realised what IDFAHITWA reminded me of. Early Cohen Brothers, like Blood Simple or Fargo (especially Fargo).

I went with a load of kids to see transformers at the cinema yesterday.
I don't think I have ever been so bored of a film. 2 hrs 40 minutes of some robots fighting and some other stuff.
It would just not end. It went on and on and on and on. I had a 30 minute snooze in the middle and I didn't miss a thing.
I left 10 minutes form the end and met the kids (and b-I-l) in the foyer as the boredom had become so overwhelming that it was starting to become rage.
Anyway 1/10 for me.

I've seen bits of lots of the films but I could never work out which ones were the goodies and which ones were the baddies.
Well apart from the yellow one.

Took the boy to see the new Spiderman film tonight, it was ok but a bit poor compared to most of the other Marvel films. It was like they (and RDJ) are really milking it. I'd give it a 4, the boy an 8.
