Birds of Prey

I know this film as been out a while but only just watched it as it did not really appeal to me. But have a lack of things to watch I gave it a try.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised, it was really good, I don't really understand the 6 rating on IMDB.
The film is set in Gotham and is about the recently single Harly Quinn who has just broken up with her longterm boyfriend The Joker.
She discovers that she has made a lot of enemies who were only not seeking their revenge as they were scared of the Joker but now she is single its open season.
Some great acting and casting in this movie, great action scenes and a decent enough story.
8/ 10.


{Ed001's Note - I am surprised you rate it so highly. I got bored and switched it off as I thought it was terrible. I would have given it a 2 out of 10 myself.}

I enjoyed it, I don’t know why. Might be due to all the rubbish I have been watching lately.

It was on TV last night and I tried to watch it. I could only stay for less than 10 minutes. It tries too hard to be cool and funny, but it's not, not at all. I know some praised the action sequences, but I just couldn't stand it to wait any longer.

Shadow in the cloud

I don't know where to start with this movie. It has one of my most favourite actresses playing the main part, however it has to be one of the worst films I've ever seen.
It is so bad it's actually quite amusing.
And it is the biggest load of woke nonsense I've ever seen. The amount of cliches and virtual Signalling is off the charts. However the actual plot is in its self ludicrous. Your hoping it will make some sense in the end but it does not.
I don't want to put any spoilers apart from its an action movie set aboard a world war 2 plane that comes under attack.
Please watch and let me know your thoughts, especially any fans of war movies.
1/ 10.

I've just done watching it yesterday.

Ludicrous plot, I agree totally. Some stupid scenes as well (hanging and crawling under a B-17 bomber flying with 250mph speed 6000ft above the air is plain stupid).

Thing is, I have seen few more worse and more stupid films before this. So I still managed to slightly enjoy this one. Just a bit. This film is pretty much forgettable, but kinda memorable for its nonsense.

And what's with the retro feel and 70s/80s synth electronic music for a WW2 film?

Just watched The Gentlemen.

It's brilliant, best film I have seen for ages.
Little slow first 20 minutes but stick with it.
Colin Farrell is brilliant and steels every scene he is in.

If you like snatch and lock stick you will love this.
9/ 10.

Agreed, watched it on sat, really enjoyable and Hugh Grant was brilliant as well, made me chuckle several times.

Guy Richie back to his best on this one.

This is defo worth a watch !!

Jack reacher (2012)

Only got round to watching this now as was put off my all the bad reviews and not a big Tom Cruise fan. I was pleasantly surprised at what a good film it was. Great and clever story. Old school action scences with a great old school car chase to boot no too unrealistic stunts that are typically in Cruise movies, like jumping from planes etc. I think it got a lot of bad reviews as the book lovers where upset that the main character who is supposed to be 6'5 is played by Tom Cruise. 8/ 10
Will watch number 2 this week.


{Ed001's Note - did it have bad reviews? I don't remember. I do remember it being an enjoyable film but the second one is just like watching it again but not so well done.}

1.) 14 May 2017 09:30:52
Just watched 2, agree. Still a good film

Dogs purpose -

Great film, if your a dog lover you will ball your eyes out all the way through, but has a happy ending. So all is good.
If your not a dog person I would guess to say you will find the film boring.
Don't understand all the bad reviews.
7.5/ 10.

Stephen Graham as Tommy has turned into one of the best and underated around


{Ed001's Note - shame he is a bit of a knob as a person, because he is a truly excellent actor. But working for the S*n when you are a Scouser with no need of money is about as low as you can get.}
