Another film I highly recommend to all of you; Top Gun Maverick.

There are lot of references from the first film, I believe to relive the nostalgia of the original Top Gun. The action sequences (mostly flight sequences of course) are breath-taking. Me and my wife chose to buy the cheapest tickets. We should go for the IMAX. I think we will enjoy it even more if its on IMAX.

I just came back from cinema watching The Batman.

Indeed like everyone is saying, this feels so different compared to previous Batman films, Nolan's films included.

I thought after the end of Nolan's trilogy, it would be difficult to make another. This new take and new direction for a Batman film, wow, it feels so fresh.

The car chase scene, mainly the scene before the chase started, when the Batmobile's engine is winding, wow! There were a few more scenes that made me came to my wife and said to her ear "wuuuuuuu-wowwww".

This is an awesome film.

I just got round to watching this, did it in two sittings. The life of a parent! But this being three hours was absolutely the right choice, everything done with a purpose and they did the right thing cutting jokers scene. It just wouldn't of fit in. We have been left just enough to make us want more.

This has got so much potential to be what DC have been trying to copy for so long. They failed with the justice league, too much too soon. And their suicide squad just didn't fit in with anything else.

Batman in particular has the best set of villains imo and the riddler (what a performance by the way) was brilliant. I am excited to see where this goes, I'm just hoping they don't drop the ball.

The games have proved what can be done with the Batman centric characters and it just needs translating to the big screen. I'm praying reeves is the one to do it.

As for the film itself, it is right up there with the best Batman movies and Patterson works as the batman. (Didn't think I'd say that).

Brilliant movie and hopefully it gets the respect it deserves, but I think it won't be until the sequel that people realise how good this was. So many threads and so many characters that can be picked up on.

{Ed001's Note - I have no problem with Patterson as Batman particularly, but I thought the film was overly long and boring. It is not a patch on the Nolan trilogy.}

Maybe I watched it thinking where it can go and after this first one it has so much potential. I would definitely watch it again and I don't do that with many 3hr movies.

For me this was about setting out a stall for where he wants to take it moving forward, with a batman a bit more fragile then others. Which I think will be interesting in its self.

I think that out of all the comics that have been converted to the big screen batman has the best set of characters, they have just been criminally under utilised.

And the only one I'd re-watch out of the Nolan trilogy is the dark Knight. I'd possibly put on the other two if they were on, not sure I'd choose to watch either one from start to finish though.

{Ed001's Note - I just got bored and it took me a few times to watch it purely because I kept falling asleep.}

Actually I thought Ed01 might like it. I guess you are not.

I think you are spot on Wyred on people will appreciate it more after it gets its sequel. Reeves did it once (at least to me, not sure with others) with his two Planet of the Apes movies. The Dawn was ok, but the climax (especially the actions) was in The War. Then only I thought, The Dawn set it up nicely for the finale in The War.

By the way Ed01, its been awhile (really really awhile) since your last movie review. Been busy and caught up? You doing good?

{Ed001's Note - it has been a while since I properly watched a movie to be honest. I always end up only half watching while editing so don't watch them closely enough to write any kind of review. But yes am doing good thanks mate, I hope all is well with you?}

A bit like a rollercoaster ride for me for the past few months; jobs, relationship. But I am doing good now. I'm glad that you are as well.

No Time to Die

What an ending for Daniel Craig's Bond. No bombastic action in this, but there are some good setpieces, especially the scene where the SUV flips in the forest. I am not really a fan of Bond films, but I enjoyed Casino Royale and the other one with Javier Bardem in it. This is Craig's final outing as Bond, and it ends really well. Two thumbs up.

I finally got round to watching this. And as a huge fan of the franchise I really enjoyed this movie.

Craig has done well as bond and the film provided a great ending for him plus other franchise characters.

I'll be interested to see where they take the franchise, I'm really hoping they don't take the cheap way out and reboot it.

Personally I want 'James Bond' to effectively become a moniker similar to 007 that is passed to the best in the business. It opens it up to be literally anyone without changing the fundamentals of the original character.

These last five films have built the feeling that with saving the world there is a genuine cost. And by doing so have built the supporting characters and a framework for future movies. rebooting the franchise just so they can have a new take on james bond would be a huge disservice to the groundwork put in through these last 5 movies.

Plus the reaction to the ending opens up far more possibilities story wise and adds genuine jeopardy for future movies. Not exploring how this impacts the world would be a miss in my opinion.

I'd be interested to see where others think the franchise goes from here.

Dune. An extremely gorgeous and beautiful film on the visual sense. I was expecting it to be slow, like Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival, but it is not that much. Everything in this film is gorgeous. But I really hate the ending. I know it's just the first part, but I think at least some more effort should be put on its ending, at least to have a certain level of "satisfaction" or climax.

Just watched 3 movies, so I will just squeeze them all in one post.

Candyman

It's not really scary, but there are loads of messages it tries to convey through its story. I feel that the story about Candyman is more like a vessel, to carry a much bigger topic. I think it is a good film, but as a horror movie, not so much for me.

Demonic

I believe I read somewhere many years ago that Neill Blomkamp was hyped so much, he was seen as a rising young director who will be among the great directors (I remember the articles mentioning the likes of Speilberg, etc). Chappie was bad, and now Demonic is just as bad. A horror film, but then suddenly it went nuts (some high-tech sci fi nonsense, then black ops team with priests as its members, some conspiracies this and that). There were some sequences with some pretty interesting visuals. Other than that, for me this is just crap. I watched until it finished. I don't know why.

Kate

This one I enjoyed the most among these three. Fun, and brutal. The fight and the action sequences aren't as good as, say John Wick. Love the setup (entirely in Japan), the soundtrack (Japanese pop and rock music), the pace, hmmm. I think I like them all. The only turn off for me is, the film ends with a story that is not possible for a sequel. It's strange for me for wanting a sequel, because I was hoping to see more of Kate.

Yeah it was fun. It was funny, violent, action-packed, great visuals, and filled with some heart-warming moments as well, about friends, family, and being a hero.

I read that WB gave complete freedom to Gunn in making this. You can easily feels that everyone involved in it are having so much fun.

Avoid Fast 9. Ridiculous, stupid at the highest level. After safe, tank, plane, and a submarine, guess what it is in Fast 9? Space!!! Fast 10 and 11 will have aliens and zombies, I am sure.
