Great film. I am slightly swayed by the fact Paddy Considines in it though

This is one of the worst films I've ever seen, I think I gave it 2 or maybe 1. To criticise the plot is to acknowledge that there was one, so I won't. But the 1st person view is nauseating and the entire thing was 1:30hrs I wish I could have got back. I really should have walked out.
I suggest you read some film critic reviews before seeing the latest film releases.
At least then you will have some idea of the subject matter.

It's really not a great film but I just found myself laughing that someone made a film that is just like watching a FPS game. The shaky camera was bad enough on the small screen so I dread to think what it was like. One of those "so bad it's good" movies for me.

Well aren't you a clever one.
My other half wanted to see it, if you must know, and she thought it was better than I did. I don't think she's quite as offended by our horrible history and the stupidity of religion and people.

A fantastic film, one of my all time favourites.

Flame and Citron 2008 9/10
Amazing Danish war drama based on true events about resistance movement in Copenhagen.
If you like war based drama with touch of noir with action I highly recommend this one.

Mads Mikklesen and Thure Lindhart are amazing, you can almost feel struggle and paranoia that surrounds them.

The links to Cloverfield are so incredibly weak it isnt worth considering it related, it looks like they have added a few little bits at the end in order to justify the use of the name Cloverfield.

Jamie Marks is Dead - 9.5/10

Loved this film. Its a ghost story but also a really sad coming-of-age type story too.

Bleak and dark, but really thought provoking.

I, Daniel Blake, had high hopes for this considering the hype but ultimately it played out like contrived left wing propaganda, as one person said "Itís a film which talks exclusively to the people who are already on side with everything it has to say".....4/10.

Silence. 2/10

An astonishingly bad movie. What is astonishing about it is that it was directed by Scorsese. I couldn't believe how dull and uninspiring it was. It has a religious theme, but watching it was like experiencing eternity, as I thought it would never end. I defy anyone to watch this movie without wanting to fall asleep. Scorsese's undoubted directorial talents seem to have deserted him in this occasion.

Now the movie explores a philosophical dilemma about whether or not the human costs of adherence to a faith are worth it. But an exploration of a moral dilemma in film does not have to be so dreadfully dull. For example, the movie Anthropoid also explored a similar moral dilemma, but did so in an engaging and gripping way.

Has Scorsese lost his touch?

The Huntsman - Winters War. Not even charlize Theron and a leatherclad Jessica chastain (and the hemsworth fella might be pleasing on the eye I suppose) could save this. Imagine a panto where everyone did crap accents on a game of thrones set and you're about there. There was half hearted attempt at humour by the dwarves - (all Brits oddly enough with regional accents) but I wasn't a fan. Back-story-cum-sequel plot, it was a bit of a mess really. 4/10

Enjoyable Victorian heist movie starring Sean Connery and Donald Sutherland.

Lets hope not as he's directed some fantastic films.

Supersonic - 7.5/10 - Doc about Oasis's rise to dominance in the 90's, I find the Gallaghers entertaining when speaking in a way that their sometimes turgid music doesnt move me, a good insight into what was a phenomenal progression in popularity.

They Live - 6/10 - A great John Carpenter idea that the constraints of the era it was made (the 80's) hold back a little, entertaining though.

Underworld: Blood Wars - 6/10 - I wanted to like this, it's better than the last couple of films, but unfortunately the franchise never lived up to the promise that the first film offered.

I really disliked it (and would agree with most of your review), but my wife apparently liked it... So I guess it must have something for some people, I just don't know what.

3:10 To Yuma (2007) - 7/10 - Excellent Western with a good cast, quite violent.

La La Land 9/10.
An utterly delightful musical that was a joy to watch from beginning to end.

Loved the music and dance sequences, and another added bonus was that one of my favourite singers John Legend appeared in it too, something I wasn't expecting.
