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

Polar - 8/10

 

The new Mads Mikkelsen starring Netflix film, based on a graphic novel and definitely not trying to pretend otherwise, about one of the world's best assassins who is about to retire to the quiet life in a cabin in snowy Montana only to find that the company he used to kill people for don't want to pay for his pension plan so decide to kill him instead (yes that's really the 'plot').

 

Super violent and bloody with occasional sexy times thrown in for good measure and very adult comic book in style. I really shouldn't like this as much as I did but it turned out to be quite fun and I just love Mads Mikkelsen. It's like John Wick but taking itself a little less serious.

I "babysit" an elderly relative a couple days a week, and he likes to watch old movies.  So I watch with him.

 

I've gained a new appreciation for W.C. Fields.  Amazing how some of his stuff is still funny after more than 80 years.  Not to mention old movies are fascinating to me looking at prices in stores and restaurants, what people wore, (people were much better dressed back then) old cars, furniture, etc.

The Favourite 4/10 - I'm sure it's all really clever.  But it's also mostly quite boring and I don't really understand if there was a point or not.

Dolores Claiborne 8/10 

 

A very, very well acted thriller / drama. Next to Carrie, this is probably the best Stephen King adaptation that I've seen.

Rampant - 7/10

 

Korean historical zombie movie, set during the Joseon Dynasty (somewhere around the 18th Century) in which a prince returns from China to find his homeland has been struck by a plague of 'demons' that threatens to destroy the kingdom.

 

Not quite up to the levels of greatness as Train To Busan but still pretty enjoyable once they get the historical drama bit out of the way and unleashed the zombies.

WC Fields was way ahead of his time; I am sure the Monty Python gang would agree on that. One of my favourites is, he walks into a bar and says to the barmaid " Hello there, you are looking better everyday", she smiles sheepishly, then he says, " Bet you can't wait for tomorrow eh?" Then the girl looks confused   lol.

Greenbook  8.5/10

 

Didn't expect this to be as enjoyable as it turned out to be.

Marhashala Ali has got to be the next big non white hollywood star- so watchable and talented.

Battle Angel - 7/10 - really quite good, enough action, enough plot.

I really want to watch this but getting the time is almost impossible, Alita looks incredible, there is a video on Youtube that shows a split screen with the finished article on one side and the actual scene with the actress complete with black suit covered in dots and face covered with dots and a strange twin camera setup that points at her face, very interesting indeed.
