Skyscraper - 6/10 - mindless action, don't think too hard though or it starts to look like a lace doily.

I watched this ages ago when it was on as a TV Mini-Series,1985-86.The full version is nearly 5 hours long, (8 episodes) complete with sub-titles,..lots of scenes are cut out for the film version ..The same goes for "Dances With Wolves"..10/10 the original version i have on DVD is over 4 hours long..not three as they put on TV

Didn't know what to expect with this and had no idea what it was about then about 5 minutes in realised it was a horror movie, which I normally hate. It has no dialog for the first 40 minutes but don't let that put you off.
Excellent film..easy.. 8/10...

Recently watched "The Rock" in 2018 film "Rampage"....fantastic effects,excellent film..I.M.O....9/10....

Extinction (Netflix) - 6.5/10

The latest Netflix sci-fi film, starring Michael Pena and Lizzy Caplan. A kind of cross between a lowish budget alien invasion film like Skyline or Battle: Los Angeles and an Outer Limit episode with an excellent effects budget.

Was reasonably entertaining and quite silly.

Mission Impossible: Fallout - 9/10

How Tom Cruise hasn't been killed filming these things I don't know.

Just watched a film based on a true story about Florence Foster Jenkins who was suppose to have been the worst opera singer at that time, she died in 1944.
I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the film when I thought I would only give it five minutes. Iím not a big fan of the main characters, Hugh Grant and Meryl Streep, who played the part of Jenkins, but it was good acting from both of them.
When M Streep was singing and trying to reach the high notes she looked and sounded like a chicken in pain trying to lay an egg, made me laugh, I didnít expect that awful singing or expressions, neither did the people at her concerts.
Although it made me laugh it was sad to think that Jenkins caught syphilis at the age of 18 from her first husband, she ended the relationship when she knew. She didnít have a sexual relationship with a man after that, in case she passed the disease on, therefore she didnít have children which she wanted. She was told by doctors she did well to live with syphilis for 50 years, there was no antibiotics in those days.
I couldnít help but admire this lady.

8/10

Justice league. It travels a now well-worn plot - Wonder Woman is released from prison and with batman endeavour to get the band back together for a one off gig and save their former orphanage - or something like it. Decent set of characters, pretty well acted- gal gadot truely is beguiling - and although it pulled out all the stops on special effects, it didn't seem as reliant on them as other recent superhero flicks. All quite predictable but very enjoyable. One minor thing, Henry cavill apparently had to have his Mission impossible 'stache airbrushed out which resulted in superman looking like he was having a minor stroke through most of the film, quite off putting. 8/10

After that description I had to check out clips of Cavill from that movie... oh my god that is so disturbing.

Was it too difficult to animate his top lip or something or did they worry that it'd show up against the rest of the wooden performance he delivers?

It's more disturbing that cavill was so in demand from two big budget films at the same time he couldn't shave it off! Couldn't they shave it off and glue one on for MI: Fallout?

I wondered (‘scuse the pun) what was up with his top lip . . .

I can’t rate the film as high since, like Suicide Squad and the other films in the DC universe, the directors are just throwing dozens of characters in with no backstory and I can’t be bothered to do the required reading myself.

Nice effects (except for the top lip) but I don’t know what’s going on or who is supposed to be fighting who or why.

3/10 from me.

The big bad guy with the horns - is he or isn’t he Liam Neeson ?

It allegedly cost $3 million extra in CGI time to get rid of that tache, thats a fair bit of money considering the total budget was $300 million.

He is the fantastic CiarŠn Hinds.

The Meg 7/10

Ive just watched this and despite Jason Statham I really enjoyed it.
Its just Jaws on steroids, if you dont take it too seriously its good fun.

---------- Post added 18-08-2018 at 11:59 ----------

How it Ends 3/10

This had so much potential but ended up being really quite poor. The titles quite ironic too.
On the plus side, I now know how to fix a collapsed lung.

The Riot Club.

Excellent film, if that's the right word... Great writing, good acting and a glimpse into another world we don't usually see, in fact if it hadn't been for David Cameron and a certan incident with a pig, I don't think the play (Posh) from which this is taken would have been written. I wonder what Cameron, Boris and George Osborne made of it all.

It speaks volumes. Well worth watching.
