Rate The Last Film That You've Seen. Marks Out Of Ten - Part Two

Recommended Posts

Mean Streets - 5/10 - Love Scorsese's films and this early effort has the right ingredients - good cast, his well placed music and a gangland setting unfortunately its not much of a spectacle, told in a cinema verite style it never really grabs the attention, much better was to follow

 

That film really disappointed me, considering De Niro and Keitel were in it, and who directed it. A real let down. I think it was a bit of self-indulgent nostalgia from Scorcese and De Niro, as they grew up together in the same neighbourhood

Children Of Men - 7.5/10 - Didn't really get this on first viewing years ago but really enjoyed it second time around, a great vision of a broken future England, very bleak but a very good film.

Kill Bill Vol 2 - 8/10 - A totally different tone to the first film but still excellent.

Avengers: Infinity War - 7/10

 

Positives

- The film was entertaining IMO although to paraphrase someone in my screening, they thought it was a load of 'groot' so other opinions are available.

- For a film with so many characters they actually managed to more or less come up with something that gives most of the characters time (if somewhat short for most) to shine.

- If you want a CGI-fest spectacle then this is for you.

- Pitch black opening.

- Great ending.

- Thanos is a character with surprising pathos.

 

Negatives

- Only about a third of the jokes worked. Some tumbleweed.

- Suffers from the need to make everything BIGGER than anything that came before it. Half the characters should have died of their injuries.

- The single credits sequence is not worth the 10 minute wait. Watch it on Youtube instead.

I Saw the Devil 8/10

 

Really good Korean thriller/horror. A serial killer film with a twist.

I thought that was very good.

 

Avengers: Infinity Wars - 8/10 - The most hyped film of the year, I enjoyed it its a long film but flies by, after a dark opening the Guardians of the Galaxy appear for a humorous interlude and the movie barrels along from there.

Down and Out in Beverly Hills 8/10. This film captured a time and place perfectly.

 

I loved

in this movie! He was wonderful, just being himself. :)

 

7.5/10

 

Mr. Rogers "hosted" a long running children's show in the US. Don't know if they showed it outside the US. Probably they did. When our eldest was small, she loved this show and watched it every day. (Our youngest wouldn't sit still long enough to watch anything!) If we weren't home, we had to tape it for her. Fred Rogers seemed to be an extraordinary man and created something really special for generations of kids.

Train to Busan - not your usual Zombie flick, with pathos and a nice little twist.

 

Any Korean films/programmes to recommend on Netflix and Amazon Prime. I have bought The Assassin and yet to watch.

Avengers Infinity War 6/10

 

Disappointingly far less than the sum of its parts, which were promising. Lots of great moments, set pieces, sfx, gags, stars, witty rejoinders, pathos, anguish and self-sacrifice - but all mushed together into 2h 40m of slightly bland cinematic smoothie.
