Wrath of Man. It's basically a revenge movie, a really cool revenge action movie. I am not going to write much but I highly recommend this to you guys. One of the many things I like about this movie is, how until the very end, I still couldn't figure out what Statham's character's background actually is or was (ex-spec ops for Equalizer and Taken, ex-assassin for John Wick, etc). Watch it guys. I'm sure you will enjoy it.

I am not sure how to rate Army of the Dead. Is it a crap film? Not entirely. Is it entertaining? Maybe some part of it. Is it a good zombie movie? Definitely not. Overlong? Hell, yes. Enough gores? Yeah. Enough action? Meh. Good story? Predictable.

Maybe it is just an OK movie to watch to kill some time.

I like it. I'm a big batista fan anyway but overall it was decent mate

04 Jun 2021 03:41:39
I am fan too mate. But something just not satisfying enough for me after watching it.

05 Jun 2021 16:50:20
Thought it was dreadful 😂 The plot made no sense, the characters were idiots, so many cliches and criminally there were no scares for a horror. Mess of a film

11 May 2021 00:27:38
Before watching Without Remorse, I was quite excited because I am a fan of Michael B. Jordan.

Totally disappointed. Its quite a bad film. Such a waste.

I resumed watching another half an hour of Snyder's Cut. I think I am not going to finish it.

{Ed001's Note - it is not worth the effort.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2021 17:09:19
Did you finish mate?

11 Jun 2021 05:01:35
Haven't, and I'm not going to.

11 Jun 2021 11:58:48
Yeah I wasn't blown away. Over inflated CGI fest

05 May 2021 23:57:18
My top 5
Interstellar
Man from nowhere
I saw the devil
Departed
Coco

Why are most modern movies all good concepts that are poorly executed?

I've just got done watching The Circle and it feels like I've only watched half a movie. I mean it's an ok movie but it feels like the budget randomly got slashed and half the scenes were removed to save money, which they spent the majority of it on Tom Hanks, Emma Watson and the clone guy from the new Star Wars movies.

Certain characters make quite a big introduction for themselves and then are never seen again, one character starts going on like there is some kind of evil plan and then nothing is ever said about it again.

I don't even know what I just watched, it was literally a compilation of specific actors saying phrases to each other.

Would not recommend.

Mortal Kombat. I was a fan of the first film during my teenage years. The film itself wasn't good (I realized that many many years after that, of course, when I tried to rewatch it), and so the only hope I have before watching the 2021 film was simply for it to be better than the 1995's. And indeed it is way better than the 1995's.

The acting is really bad. The dialogue is bad. The fight scenes aren't great but better. Good amount of violence. The visuals and effects are great. Nothing much to talk about the story, nothing special (a bit different from the previous Mortal Kombat though). And so I ended up enjoyed it a lot. I had a good time.

Going on from what i said other day saying films aren't as great as they use to be.
What is people's top 5 films from the last 10years.

{Ed001's Note - damn only the last one counts from the Dark Knight trilogy. And that is the only one that I am dubious about so it will only be in if I can't come up with five others. Logan defo has to be in there, brilliant movie. Warrior was 2011 so that's three. Rogue One I would have to pick too, the best of all the Star Wars movies. The Raid, have to pick that and that was also 2011, love that film! Now I am stuck as there is John Wick, a bunch of Marvel movies, and I would have to say that I liked The Intouchables as well. Also I have to say, despite it really not being something I would have chosen to watch on my own, even though the writer is a big Liverpool fan, The Fault In Our Stars I took my daughter to see. In fact she made me take her a few times as she loved it so much and cried through it so missed most of it wiping away her tears. If that film doesn't move you, then you have no heart at all.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Apr 2021 05:48:02
Mine are
The raid
Edge of tomorrow
The green book
Thor ragnarok
Brawl in cell block 99
Most of those I've picked because when finished watching they all felt quite original and made me want to watch them again.

29 Apr 2021 11:06:04
The Irishman.

What a great movie.

02 May 2021 10:39:59
If that 10 years includes this year, top of my list would be Pixar's Soul. For me, it is the best Pixar movie, and I would even personally rate it as one of the best movies I have ever watched, despite it being an animation film. A truly moving film.

02 May 2021 11:11:17
By the way Ed01, which one is the Liverpool fan? The writer of the book, or the screenwriters?

{Ed001's Note - the book. My daughter has read that, and all his books, many times. He is a priest or something, who works with terminally ill cancer patients I think.

It probably struck a chord with me as my best friend fought against various forms of cancer for about 10 years before finally succumbing and, at the time it came out, he had leukemia and it was just a matter of time for him as well.}

02 May 2021 12:37:19
Sorry to hear that Ed01.

As for the writer, I haven't watch Fault In Our Stars yet, but I have watched Paper Towns which I like a lot.

I watched Paper Towns basically because of its screenwriter. The first I watched was 500 Days of Summer, and looked up for his other works (Spectacular Now and Paper Towns) and I enjoyed all of them.

{Ed001's Note - to be honest I would not know who wrote what in terms of screenwriters. It is not something I have even considered looking at.}

04 May 2021 15:42:51
Top five is really hard.
Joker
Predestination
Seven pounds
Dark night (Heath ledger one)
independance day

In no order and probably forgot loads. lol

{Ed001's Note - Dark Knight with Heath Ledger was over 10 years ago wasn't it?}

04 May 2021 21:34:48
Most of em was. Oops. Lol

{Ed001's Note - it's ok, most of the editors can't count either.}

06 May 2021 20:07:17
I forgot about joker.
Great film.

05 Jun 2021 16:57:18
Can’t believe I’ve only now found this area of the site!

Django Unchained (2012)
Sicario (2015)
Hell or High Water (2016)
Arrival (2016)
Baby Driver (2017)

Special shout-out for the Raid films too. Proper relentless action done right. The director is from a town about 10 mins away too

{Ed001's Note - do you really like Baby Driver? I watched it as far as the first driving sequence and it made the Fast and Tedious seem realistic and exciting, so I switched it off.}

05 Jun 2021 17:14:54
Honestly I did Ed! I think I was more surprised how much I enjoyed it. Loved the soundtrack and the action set pieces. Thought the main character played a good part and was a cool action hero. It was a brain dead action flick done right for me.

Should also have found a place for Jojo Rabbit. Absolutely loved that film and cried at least twice in it 😂

{Ed001's Note - wow, I didn't like the soundtrack to be honest, not my thing at all. I would agree on it being brain dead though.}

05 Jun 2021 17:41:36
Haha it is a film that didn’t take much thinking to be fair but not every film has to be the Seventh Seal to be worthwhile. Technically it was a brilliant shot film too lots of really impressive camera work with the driving sequences. Give it another whirl Ed you might enjoy it! If not and I’ve wasted an hour and half of your life I’ll send you my VHS of Teen Wolf everyone loves that film

{Ed001's Note - honestly mate, I couldn't watch that crap, the driving sequence was embarrassingly bad. Among the worst I have ever seen. It was the most ridiculous over the top stuff I think I have ever seen. I don't mind mindless trash, but it needs to at least engage me with some humour or something to overlook stuff like that. It is just not for me, it tries too hard to be cool and it is just not cool. Anything but cool.}

05 Jun 2021 17:56:37
Fair enough 😂 I would have included Prisoners too but didn’t want to fill it with Villeneuve films. Dredd would be another shout. Actually very difficult to just name five

{Ed001's Note - I have never heard of Prisoners. Dredd is a good shout, such a massive upgrade on the Sly Stallone attempt.}

05 Jun 2021 18:01:09
Actually I’ve just realised I’ve totally forgot Mad Max Fury Road! Criminal. Ok bump Baby Driver for Mad Max

{Ed001's Note - I am not that big a fan of that either, it's ok but not a patch on the original.}

05 Jun 2021 18:05:04
Absolutely loved Fury Road. Check out Prisoners Ed bit of a slow burn but some epic performances and stunning cinematography. I realise my opinion probably counts for little now but trust me haha

{Ed001's Note - there are a few slow burn Aussie movies I enjoyed that I think fit the time frame but I can't think of their names. Not much use I know!}

25 Apr 2021 08:47:54
I watched mortal kombat 2021 yesterday, there is a few cool bits pardon the pun. Overall I was disappointed with it.

Worth a watch but the first film was better.

Thoughts if anyone else has seen it ??

{Ed001's Note - worse than the original one? Wow that is a damning indictment!}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2021 11:42:10
Probably like most modern films and remakes. Just not very good.
The original wasn't great but it was fun.
Have to admit tho modern films just aren't nowere near as good as the 70s,80s and 90s.

{Ed001's Note - shame as I like Joe Taslim.}

26 Apr 2021 09:13:13
Like I said. I'd watch if your a fan as some sub zero bits are cool. The rest were not that great. Shame as it could of been awesome.

{Ed001's Note - ok cheers mate, I will take a look when I get a chance to sit and watch a film.}

02 May 2021 10:40:35
Ah sorry. I didn't notice there is a post for this already.

24 Apr 2021 11:01:28
Any of you guys have watched Nobody? I had a lot of fun. Yeah it's somehow almost similar to John Wick (its written by the same writer though) and The Equalizer, but I would say this is a bit more fun. There aren't any fancy gunfight moves like those in John Wick films, it's not as serious or as dark as The Equalizer, but it is still brutal. And fun. And I have said the word fun few times already. It gives me the feeling when I first watched the first John Wick. I hope they are not making a sequel. It's a good brutal and fun action movie, but making it into a franchise will definitely ruin it. Just like what they have done with Wick, Equalizer, Taken and maybe some others.

{Ed001's Note - I still like the John Wick movies, all of them. Adding Mark Dacascos to the latest one was a masterstroke as I really like him.

I haven't yet seen Nobody but really want to, all the more so now you have said this.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Apr 2021 12:39:27
He doesn't look like he have aged. Even his physical. Brought back old memories definitely when saw him in Wick 3. I remember how I enjoyed Double Dragon so much when I was younger, I watched it many many times.

{Ed001's Note - one of my favourite movies ever is Drive which stars him. Brilliant film.}
