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

Recommended Posts

Brain on Fire - 7.5/10

 

Well acted film about a really interesting subject.

The true story of Susanna Callahan, Chloe Moretz plays a successful young woman whose life is taken over by a misdiagnosed mental illness.  It’s only when she hits rock bottom that a professor discovers it’s something completely different. 

My only criticism is I’d have liked the film to have shown more of her recovery. 

Another book to add to my shopping list I think!

Excellent film, looks like there is going to be a sequel.

Greyhound 

 

Not impressed, 

Lot's of shouting of coordinates, Yes Sir's - No Sir's - fetch me this, fetch me that and the loud background music being played to try to give the film a sense of urgency I found more annoying than anything.

 

didn't work for me & I wouldn't recommend it personally but each to his own. 

 

low 5/10

COMA (2019)

 

An architect wakes up in a mixed up world with fellow coma sufferers fighting for their existence.

Excellent filming and an unusual story line that works.

Lots of special effects and action through out.

The underline story is good and the bad guys are about as spooky bad as you can get.

 

Sub titles or dubbed but Hey Ho! still worth watching.  8+ /10.

 

 

Terminator Dark fate - (2019)

 

finally caught up with this and well worth the wait.

 

Ignoring Terminator Genisys and the poor TV series I loved the first three films and it was nice to see Sarah Conner up to her fighting best in this one.

the film is probably full of holes with some of the time line issues BUT well worth it and would be excellent to  binge watch them all in one go.

Great cast and filming.

Fully Recommended  9+ 10 

 

 

Enjoy.

One I've watched today on Sky: a Hugh Jackman/HBO film called 'Bad Education' (about misappropriation of school funds). 
Wasn't overly fussed by the spiel and the ad, but HBO's generally a pointer towards quality so I gave it a go. 
Very glad I did. Jackman's acting is understated yet gripping and the script (based on a true story) is compelling. Couldn't turn it off.
An easy 7 - at least.

Host    7/10

 

I only watched this because it was short (57 mins) but I ended up really enjoying it.

 

6 friends on lockdown have a Zoom get together every week, taking it in turns to choose an activity...

Unfriended: Dark Web    8/10

Same as Host, this is all played out on laptop screens etc.

I thought it was great, it took a while to get going but by the end I was almost literally on the edge of my seat

Sky's on a roll recently. After months of rubbish they seem to be offering a lot of quite interesting left-of-centre flicks. Just watched this. Well worth a viewing.

Bloke decides he can't stand another night in the house with his judgemental wife so he goes out. Gets roofied at a party. Evening spirals unbelievably out of control. It has 'Seven Pounds' undertones. Doesn't go where I expected. Marvellous effects!

Happy to award a 7.

………….. and 'The Kindness Of Strangers'. Only watched this as the beloved and I are huge fans of Bill Nighy's work.

It's one of those 'domino' films. How one small action has serious/important repercussions on other people. 

Simple enough premise; wife goes on the run with her two children to escape the brutality of her police officer husband and ends up homeless on the streets of New York. Sounds cheerful eh? Well it isn't. It's harrowing. It's provocative and unnerving. And brave.

Another 'worthy' watch.

9 out of 10 for forcing the viewer to confront unpleasant truths. 

(Worry not - there's a happy ending 🙂)
