    ...A Quiet Place... a horror movie that adds nothing to the genre: teens provoking the monsters, Dad knows best how to save the family, basements best avoided, and Spielbergian sentimentality...not nearly enough deserving characters die...3.5/10: John Krasinski should stick to sitcoms...

    John Voight and an International cast in cold war era c 1963-4 nazi thriller the Odessa loosely based on Forsyth's book

    The Odessa File 7/10

    Good watch subtle plot and nice menace from a talented cast plus a neat final twist.

    Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) - IMDb

    well I had to see it, and I wasn't disappointed

    this is an awesome self parody of the first sequel, also a parody with a lot of third degree humor that most Americans won't get

    I won't explain the plot, there isn't any and it would be full of holes anyhow if there was one

    it was hard to tell sometimes if the self parody wasn't going too far in the absurd

    Deja vu all over again, pat.

    How can a biopic be fictional?

    More attempted showers of piss over my parade.



    Parts of it are a send up of his own career, with comedic elements added.

    The Comedian

    This has sat on the HD for ages after poor reviews but finally cranked it up.

    It is not a great movie by any stretch but it is fun to watch screen legends DeNiro, DeVito and Keitel put in some good performances.

    The comedy routines are actually quite funny too.

    The life changing denouement is not handled very convincingly though and DeNiro still comes across as unusually miserable when he should be a bit more full of the joys of life.

    7/10

    ^I seen that.

    It was ok, worth a look, but also not essential viewing

    So-so

    Finished the first season of "the looming tower", and it was awesome

    those arabs did come come across a bit dim, I guess that's why their mission was so successful

    gotta love the politics before 911 and how they portrayed the different key political characters

    Condi and Tenet were awesome as clueless fuckers, loved the main FBI guy and his competent team, and the CIA came across as a bunch of lunatic kunts, which they are in RL

    I will miss John, very good characterization by Jeff Daniels, the role was a perfect fit, the guy was hillarious

    they were all excellent, even the nerdy professor

    Red Sparrow (2018)

    didn't expect much, but it was a nice watch overall, intrigue with double agents in the KGB and CIA

    if you like that kind of movie, you won't regret it, no time to be bored, and a lot of nice sex scenes, even though too short

    Coco

    Great animation from Pixar about a boy who sets out on the Mexican day of the dead to look for his musician great great grandfather in the land of the dead.

    Kids will enjoy but it is a great story that adults can enjoy too.

    Even makes you think about the interesting philosophical idea that your time limit to enjoy the rewards of the afterlife could be determined by how long people remember you in this life.

    8/10

    ...sounds like the beginning of a religious guilt trip: light more candles! clean those graves! pray for the dead!...

    The 15.17 to Paris

    Experimental work by Clint Eastwood dramatising the real-life events around the disarming of the islamist terrorist on the train by the 3 merkin tourists (2 of whom were off duty military) a couple of years ago.

    Eastwood casts the 3 men as themselves. They have no training as actors so the results are 'experimental'.

    Does not really fly as a movie in its own right but interesting as an exercise in dramatic recreation.

    The final scene is odd because the 'actors' you have been watching 'playing parts' appear on a podium with Francoise Hollande in actual news footage to receive France's highest decoration the Legion of Honour.

    7.1/10

    Is it really 'experimental' though?

    It sounds like just more of the usual thuddingly dull stuff CE has been turning out for the last decade.

    I always have time for Eastwood.

    I think he is one of the few reliably good directors.

    I think using the real life people to create a cinematic dramatisation is pretty experimental.

    The acting talents on show are obviously a bit thin but it is kind of surprising what Eastwood has managed to coax out of a bloke who looks like a bit of a meat-head dumb-oaf red-neck (no offence Spencer, if you are reading this, and I am not one to judge a book by its cover!).

    Although his sidekick Skarlatos has more natural screen presence.

    'Unforgiven' was a nailed on masterpiece.

    It's been a precipitous slide since then.

    This sounds on a par with his argument with a chair.
