The Dark Knight Rises - Too many plotlines, too many characters. I mainly love this movie because outside of the comics it's about the only time Bane has been done properly. Tom Hardy just chomps every scene.

Falls apart in the last act.

Ghost World: Steve Bushemi gets his end away with a really young Thora Birch and featuring Scarlet Johanson’s boobs as they hypnotise you whenever they are in shot.

The Good the Bad and The Ugly: kinda slow, kinda surreal. Was also cooking but not much happens really. Is more like a mood than a film but not as much as...

TAOJJBTCJF as above post where even less happens than in TGTBATU which is beautifully shot but is like 5 hours long and my attention span is really only 2 hours tops.

Unless... I’m watching David Lynches almost unintelligible but amazingly kitsch Dune.... FATHEEER!!!! *clench fist, head down* and ‘We will take the boy-man. He will have sanctuary in our tribe’, ‘Stay back! She has the weirding way.’

Oh yeah and Get Carter really just for the soundtrack. It wasn’t any great shakes but I liked the strange claustrophobic vibe. Kind of reminded me of Straw Dogs weirdly which I highly recommend (Dustin Hoffman stars) as it is exactly what the uk countryside is like, crossed with the Wicker Man. Trust me - avoid the uk countryside and Wales, it’s weird.

My Hero Academia Two Heroes at the cinema. Wasn't a great movie but it's enjoyable. I plan on re-watching Pulp Fiction soon. Re-watch value is great with that movie.

Outlaw King - It's impressive how close it sticks to history. Although certain parts do feel very rushed. John Comyn and Robert The Bruce became co-guardians of Scotland and had always been rivals, they hated each other. Comyn doesn't get enough screen-time to really grasp that or have much of a connection of the character.

The ramifications of killing someone in-side a church when people were so religious wasn't really emphasized. Up until his death he believed he was cursed by god, with his illness being symptomatic of that.

Def would have changed those two aspects of the film.

Prince Of Wales was overemphasized. He more interesting in "playing". Although the scene where Edward dies and explains he could never picture his son sort of reels that back abit and is one of the best scenes in the movie. Edward II himself is portrayed less as a flat mustache twirling dick and more like a wise, no bullshit king who believes he's right than bad for the sake of being bad.

Not sure about the fist-fight at the end, I guess they had to take creative license and it links back to the start of the movie, Bruce being the son he wanted to be is the vibe they were going for, but they would most certainly have taken him hostage, letting him go is just straight up dumb. But whatever. Movie.

Chris Pine is arguably too dry. The film as a whole is far more low-key and less obvious good/bad than something like Braveheart. It's downbeat as well, instead of cheering at the end of a battle it has a mournful tone because (you know) people are dead. Almost like logic has been applied to the movie. The final shot of the young fellow holding the crown was wonderful.

Aaron Taylor Johnson as Douglas was great , it even has Douglas larder incident t and doesn't try to dress it up as good-guys VS mustache twirling English, it's straight up brutal taking them dishonorably on their day of prayer.

Loudon Hill has a lack of CGI PS2 men or glamor shot set paces. It makes a point of the using the terrain against them. His speech is sort of anti-Braveheart well where he basically tells them "I don't give a shit, just fight good", everything feel authenticate and brutal.

Overall not as good as I was hoping it would be, but I admire it for sticking pretty close to the events and not for pandering flag-waving nationalists and just going down the easy dumb-dumb route with happy peasants minding their business until dem English at it again.

White House Down - Feels like a straight to dvd Die Hard Almost so bad it's good, but not quite. The lead (who's name I can't remember) runs around in a vest shottying baddies, he's like John Mcclain without personality. Too much greencreen as well, even when they are doing mundane things like driving a car it looks like a PS2 game.

Loading Video...

It seems to rip off a sequence from The Rock as well, but it's comparatively rubbish.

Loading Video...

Should have probably just watched The Rock, come to think of it.

Instant Family = 8.5 (maybe 9.0) out of 10

Normally I'm not a Comedy/Drama mix guy, but this one hits all the marks despite Wahlberg still not being a good actor. Probably the best marks I'd give for this kind of movie, plenty of laughs, and plenty to stir emotions. Pulls you in and stays with you. If you like this genre, consider it a must see and get your butt out there. Decent movie to see with your significant other. Well done!

Imagine Bruce Wayne grown old. He is not as active as he once was. TEN Years has gone since he last wore that bat suit. The new generation thinks Batman to be a Myth.

Joker is in asylum recovering. Harvey has now been operated and is not a two face anymore. A new gang is in Gotham called “Mutants”. Killing people even for a penny. Whole city is in panic.

Mission Impossible Rogue Nation - Usually find these movies kinda meh, predominantly because it's Tom Cruise being Tom Cruise, but this one was pretty good. It was like Spectre crossed with From Russia With Love. Might watch the one with Henry Cavils moustache.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It was okay - not much more than your typical Hollywood spectacle. Well done and entertaining but lacks depth.

Instead of movies lately, I've been watching Hannibal (Tv Show). It's great.

Oblivion (2013) - Not really a bad movie, it's merely "alright".

Every movie Tom Cruise is in, it's difficult to feel for the character, because it's Tom Cruise being "Tom Cruise". From watching behind the scenes stuff, although he comes across as abit mental, he is enthustic and puts effort into this stuff doing his own stunts and what not... but it's just Tom Cruise... again... and he lets the movie down. Unfortunately.

Music is amazing and some of the visuals are nice. It's like if Apple destroyed the world.

Green Book = 8.0 / 10

Well made interracial buddy movie (highlighting the blatent racism of the early 60's) based on a true story. Viggo Mortensen played a better New York Italian-American than I would have thought, though it did seem stereotypical. Not sure if I think it's worthy of a best movie nomination in most years but this has been a weak year so....yeah maybe. I personally thought "Eighth Grade" was the best movie I have seen this year.

Not as down on it as you, but I thought it definitely had problems.

Odd you say Rocky 4, I was actually thinking it was a loose remake of Rocky III with some Rocky II thrown it.

Rocky 3 > Mickey Advises Rocky against fighting Clubber Lang, Instead of Mickey dying, his father is dead from the opening. Hero gets the shit beaten out of him, has his Robert The Bruce moment, goes to some urban area to re-assume himself to learn a new method to take down foe etc...

Rocky 3 is a much better movie in my opinion. I know people get down on that because it's where it turned to more action/comic book stuff, but it's really effective at what it sets out to do. It's also a really tightly paced move, Creed II is so, so baggy. Feels like you could cut 20-30 minutes off it.

The family stuff is reminiscent of Rocky II. And much like Rocky II, none of it really resonates. Aside from a really great opening credits scene, Rocky II sucks imo.

Probably the most interesting aspect was the Ivan Drago stuff. Originally Rocky 5 was suppose to be about Ivan Drago dealing with his defeat, and some of that is in here. And the idea of "what does a villain do when they have nothing", is intricately more interesting than "Adonis must prove himself again" and all the schmaltzy baby stuff.

As I say, I don't think it's a total write off as you, but I'd definitely put it below 1/III/IV and Balboa. It's only really better than II and V in my eyes.

Sort of enjoyed the final the fight and how it played it, and the music-score, performances, all good. But it could have been way more original and really squandered Ivan Drago, it was more drips of something that could have been far more interesting.
