What do you guys think about It Chapter Two? Its a bit of a mixed feeling for me. I was hoping for it to be scarier, since it's a horror movie obviously. I know the first wasn't scary as much as I hoped, just hoped it will be better for the second. However, I find Chapter Two quite entertaining when it comes to the effects, but it gave the feeling of more of a creature sci-fi film than a horror film (referring to the finale when the Losers face to fight the It). I really enjoyed the humours in it. Some nice flashbacks or scenes when it shows the young Losers, and I really like the ending. Its just that after watching it, it doesn't feel like I just watched a horror movie.

I agree Haizan there's no way I would consider this a horror movie, I left the cinema with mixed feelings, mainly really annoyed as it wasn't what I expected or wanted to see but at the end of the day it was following the book, the CGI was horrible and way over the top imo which ruined the movie for me. The 1st chapter was 10 times better and even that wasn't great. 4/10

I felt a bit disappointed. The Part 1 set it up perfectly, maybe the reason why i had high expectations, but chapter 2 dropped the ball of sorts

Wow. Angel Has Fallen is not that bad. Sometimes we do need this kind of film; kill some hours with lots of nice and big explosions.

Hobbs and Shaw. I really had a mixed feeling after watching it. A part of me enjoyed it; lots ot ludicirous action and some good humour, but yet the sci-fi futuristic concept was totally over-the-top. I can accept it if it's some sort of new story about agents fighting super villains, but this is part of Fast and Furious franchise. I enjoyed it though, but again, this isn't Fast and Furious anymore. I was hoping since Justin Lin is back for the Fast 9, there might not have much futuristic stuffs unlike Hobbs and Shaw and Fast 8. I was wrong. The trailer I just watched clearly shows that they are going to continue with this direction. I think I might enjoy it as well though, and I have to start to accept that the street-racers stealing dvd players are long gone.

Two other movies I watched recently were Rambo Last Blood and the 2019 Hellboy. I'll make it short here; as for Rambo, don't waste your time. Enough said.

For Hellboy, strangely I really like it, and I felt it is much better than del Toro's Hellboy (I never enjoyed both of del Toro's Hellboy films anyway). I felt that Harbour is a much better Hellboy than Perlman. Some of the visuals and effects were quite bad, some were quite nice. Really like the sequence at the final part of the film when Hellboy unleashed giant demons in the city. Baba Yaga was super creepy. The story or plot was quite a mess though, but I still really enjoyed it. But there won't be any sequels that's for sure. What a waste.

Liked Hobbs and Shaw myself, def over the top but I enjoyed it lol. Was curious about Rambo but thought it'd be bad, so I'll give it a miss cheers.

Kinda liked Hellboy myself too and agree with what you say, but I did like Perlman myself

Finished watching two horror movies; Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, and Brightburn.

For Scary Stories, I like how it blended in some light humours in it, ala IT. I was expecting this to be "darker". There weren't much jump scares in it, but that isn't me telling that it wasn't scary. Love the creature effects especially the Jangly Man. I really like the narration at the end of it, it was a nice touch. I'm not sure if it stays true to the books, but I personally find this is a good horror movie.

As for Brightburn, I don't know how to say it but basically I felt a bit disappointed. Some nice gores, but the overall story was a bit meh. I really like the idea, the idea of a baby fell from the sky grew up becomes evil instead of a hero, but it seems didn't really work out as much. The ending tried to tease you that it might be possible that there will be a sequel or a possible franchise, possibly mashing up with a character from the film Super. Overall, I would say this film is a miss despite the potential for it being a hit.

John Wick 3 : Parabellum. The second one disappointed me. However, it helped me set a certain expectation before watching the third. They tried making it "bigger" in the second, and it continues in the third, making it more ridiculous. But I don't mind it much. There are some really good action sequences. I really like the bike chase scene, as well as the finale gunfights and fistfights. The shootout scene with dogs are nice as well. The ending clearly shows that there will be more of John Wick films. Yeah I would admit that in a way I enjoyed John Wick 3. But the first one was very good they ruined it simply by making the sequels, and I still stand by that opinion.

Bombshell - really enjoyed this one and some excellent performances from from Robbie, Theron, Kidman and an unrecognisable John Lithgow. Def worth watching.

{Ed001's Note - what's it about?}

It's all about the sexual harassment that women endured at Fox News. Shows how the first one stood up and the rest followed, kinda the start of the me too movement. Wasn't sure it would be my kinda film but was honestly excellent, the performances were great, really enjoyed this one

{Ed001's Note - ah ok thanks. }

Joker

Simple; this is a really good film. A comic book film, and yet so different unlike any other comic book films. Don't expect huge action scenes or lavish-looking visual effects. It's drama, great, extremely dark, and disturbing performance from Pheonix, and it ended well as a foundation for a new batman film or franchise - if they are ever thinking about connecting this Joker film with any future Batman films, which I think they should! Or at least I hope they are considering making a sequel.

Easily my fave film, saw it at the cinema and I could not believe how involved I got with it, I really felt for Arthur and was so glad when he became "Joker"

Phoenix is amazing and although I would like a sequel it should not involve Batman as such, more of Joker and his criminal mind.

You get what you f**king deserve !!!!

6 Underground

A story about a team that is privately funded, unattached to any organisation or country and their mission is to take down tyrants and evil dictators.

It's a Michael Bay film, so you can expect loud and bombastic actions.

The story is a mess, with lots of flashbacks and lots of scenes jumping from one to another that made me totally lost. But there is Reynolds in it, and I really enjoy watching this guy. I find the action scenes are really great and I really enjoyed them.

I am going to rate it 0 for the story but full 5 stars for the actions. I don't mind watching this again over the weekend.
