Priscilla Queen of the Desert - 9/10 - Never seen the film before but had seen the stage show. Wonderful film, amazing music and truly heart warming. Just an almost perfect example of that easy light genre.

Paddington 2. 7/10. Worth watching and a lot better than lala land.

Finally sat down and made time to watch Beasts of No Nation on Netflix recently (link to Wiki).

 

Beautifully-filmed, convincing performances by the 2 leads, somewhat predictable but not in a bad way.

 

Harsh (more than harrowing as such), and aptly conveying how quickly lives can become less than worthless when social cohesion and values are lost.

 

It is to Black African kids, what City of Gods is to Brazilian kids.

 

7/10

ET. I liked the bit at the end where the big aliens come to collect the little alien.

 

I haven't been to the pictures for some time.

Los Parecidos (The Similars) 8/10

 

Mexican sci-fi/horror film from 2015, set in 1968

 

During a bizarre storm strange things start happening to people waiting at a remote bus station.

 

Its creepy, funny, beautifully shot and very Twilight Zone.

 

I still dont 100% know what was going on but I did really enjoy it.

Case 39 6/10

 

 

A decent film. Not a very imaginative storyline (and Renée Zellweger gets on my nerves!) but I still quite enjoyed it.

The Fear of 13 10/10

 

Its actually a documentary but I thought it deserved a recommendation.

 

Nicholas Yarris telling the story of his 21 years on death row.

 

Unbelievable story, and an absolutely captivating performance.

I watched The Force Awakens again as I'm familiarising myself for watching episode VIII on the 14th. I didn't rate the film when I saw it at the cinema (last time I went to the cinema as well, don't like them) but every time I've watched it again it has grown on me. It's up to 7 out of 10.

Safe House - 6/10 - The type of film where you disengage your brain and kick back for a couple of hours of escapism, the type of film you only need to watch once.

Watched another one of my all time favourites last night , Scent Of A Woman. That speech by Al Pacino in front of the whole school, is one of the best scenes in any movie of any generation. 10/10 mostly for Pacino's acting.

Wonder 4/10

 

Mediocre predictable, it didn't touch me. You need to be psychologically attached to the lower level of USA culture to like this movie.

Cannibal Holocaust. 8/10

 

Shocking, gory, disturbing, obscene. Just a few words that actually go nowhere near describing it.

Its actually an incredible film, but definitely not for the faint hearted.

The Director was arrested and had to prove in an Italian court that it wasnt a snuff film, and that all the actors were in fact alive and well. He also had to recreate how some of the scenes were filmed.

The film was banned for a while, and the Director lost his film license for a couple of years for the cruelty and killing of real animals.

 

Ive wanted to watch it for ages, and Im glad I did, but Ill never watch it again.

Three Kings.

 

7/10

 

Twisty, morally ambiguous heist caper set during 'Desert Storm' with Mark Wahlberg, Ice Cube, Spike Jonze and George Clooney.

 

Rewatched after many years, and stands up well.
