That's made my day almost as much as the film did, Apelike!

Alien: Covenant - 6/10 - below expectations given the good reviews it's been getting. Horror sci-fi (and only a 15) that relies on the crew being stupid multiple times :-(

Independent day - resurgence. 10 times the effects, half the charm of the original. A fair go at a plot (I can't think of many sequels after the world has been saved) but too many cheesy lines and the script tried too hard to capture the feel of the original that was very much of its time - laboured is probably the word I'm looking for. Not as bad as it could have been 7/10

It feels like a composers different version of the same old opera. It gets very very boring when you already know many versions of the same opera. Covenant really lacks the sense of humour the old originals had.
Thumbs down. This is only good for someone who sees alien for first time.

Sleepless in Seattle. 9 out of 10. I don't usually watch mushy films, but I really enjoyed it. Kenny and Niles out of ' Frasier ' were in it too!

Remember Me. 5 out of 10. A load of old tripe in my opinion. And everytime they had a dilemma or a problem, they'd just jump into bed like that was going to fix it or something!

I think the main problem a lot of people have with Covenant is that they want to recapture the feeling of Alien and Aliens but that's just not possible. I actually enjoyed large parts of Covenant but mainly because I didn't have any expectations about what it should be.

It's better than a lot of films that have had Alien in the title, it just can't compare to the two films it was always going to be compared to.

Trainspotting - 5/10 - I was never really caught up in the hype around this films release quite liked it at the time but never really loved it, decided to watch again now a sequels out and opinion hasn't really changed an overly stylised series of sketches hung together by a heroine addiction theme. So-so.

Anthropoid - 9/10 - A film about the true story of the assassination attemp on the prominent Nazi Heydrich in WW2 Prague, an excellent film thats sometimes hard to watch but very tense. Best film I've seen this year.

I agree. Definitely one of the best movies of 2016.

Agreed. The moral dilemma facing the assassins was well done. They were incredibly brave. However, I don't think the operation should have gone ahead, as the consequences for ordinary Czechs were so severe in terms of reprisals. The shoot out in the church was very well done, although the real events were less dramatic, in that the Czechs in the church did not have the fire power to resist the Germans through a prolonged shoot out.

Saw a version of this years ago call Operation Daybreak. I seem to remember at the end a soldier doing a swallow dive from the Church spire head first to the ground when outnumbered and outgunned.

King Arthur.

THE worst film I have ever seen.

I am keen on historical, or quasi-historical dramas, so decided to see this despite the bad reviews.

What a waste of time. No dramatic tension, no coherent narrative, boring, tedious battle scenes, sleep inducing dialogue, an excess of CGI and mediocre acting. I walked out before the end.

If you want to see a wonderful film about the legend of King Arthur, then get the DVD of Excalibur.

Avoid the other like the plague.

I've really no idea why Guy Ritchie carries on foisting his garbage films on the general public, its not like he needs the money. Made a half decent film in Snatch and the rest of his output is mostly dreadful.

Elizabethan Town. 8 out of 10. I really enjoyed it. I need to stop watching all this mushy stuff as it's going to turn me soft.

Suicide squad. Good concept, pretty average film. Disjointed, heavily reliant on special effects (that's something that can be levelled at a lot of films though). Characters seemed to come and go and only Harley Quinn and deadshot were any where near fleshed out, and not sufficiently. Those two were the main focus by a mile, the rest were two dimensional and wasted, particularly the joker and viola Davis's character. It's spawned a lot of poor costume choices at parties and comicon and will no doubt spawn a few sequels too but it needs a better script and a better director. 7/10 (and a point of that was for Margot Robbie.)
