Rate the last film that you've seen - part two

Recommended Posts

Alien: Covenant. Nice effects but a really messy plot trying to showcase Fassbenders character whilst the rest of the largely forgettable cast were eaten and/or killed. Some odd casting choices in the cast too - Danny Mcbride being the oddest. An effort was made to try expand the mythology of it all but failed really. Maybe needs another view? 4/10

Am I alone in thinking that both Prometheus and Covenant would have been infinitely better films had Fassbender's characters not existed at all? Well, maybe not Prometheus (lots more wrong with that) but Covenant certainly. All the bits that he isn't in are actually pretty decent and could have been worked into a good Alien story without any of the Engineer guff but as soon as the Fass turns up it makes you just wish that Lance Henrikson or Ian Holm were still young. He stinks the film out with his hammy performance.

Inside (À l'intérieur) (2007) 6/10

 

French horror, its violent, disturbing and really gory. I had to look away a few times and thats not like me. Worth a watch but not for the faint hearted.

I dread to think what the budget was for fake blood!

I remember watching this a while ago, agree with what you say.

 

The Music Box - 8/10 - L&H, a load of steps and a piano - brilliant.

The Commuter 4/10

 

Yet another Liam Neeson has a time limit to save the world and his family style film.

 

If you've seen his earlier film "Non Stop" (2014), its basically the same film but on a train.

Yeah True romance like Killing Zoe, natural born killers were stories written by him but made by other people

 

Killing Zoe wasn't written by Tarantino. Roger Avary wrote and directed the film. Tarantino was an executive producer.

I enjoyed the film at the time, might have to give it another airing.

 

King Boxer AKA Five Fingers Of Death (1972) - 7/10 - A good not great film but one that kick started the US martial arts craze and influenced many film of the genre to follow.

Berlin Syndrome - 7/10 - A slow burning kidnapping thriller with an Australian tourist being held captive by a German school teacher, builds well but the ending is not as fulfilling as it could have been, I enjoyed it though.

American Made - 7.5/10 - Tom Cruise plays pilot Barry Seal who was recruited by the CIA to photograph South American drug cartels - corruption abounds, good film.

I must have too much time on my hands :hihi:

 

Thor: Ragnarok - 7/10 - A more comic turn for the MCU on this one, a little muddled in places but entertaining.

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
