Re: Official Movie Review Thread

I don't think I've seen any jurassic film apart from the first one on the telly/video as a kid.

I saw a late trailer for Fallen Kingdom and it seem to reveal what should have been a secret twist.

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

So all the nerd movies are out at the moment. Deadpool 2 is... fine. It's what you'd expect from Deadpool with twice the budget. I got a few laughs out of it but the plot is fairly basic and predictable. Domino is excellent, the returning X-Men are kind of underused. There was one sequence I was spo...

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

I just saw Solo: A Star Wars Story and it was actually pretty watchable. Not outstandingly plotted or characterised but the actors were likable and decent enough and it had a lot of action to it. Some character work but it was a bit heavy handed and not special. For a cash in film that just didn't n...

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

I've tried several time to write a response to that Siege, without coming off as oversensitive or a dick. I'm kind of vexed at the flat contradiction though. I wrote a lot more than 'they weren't all in the same place' and 'half a movie' and it feels bad to have my review reduced to that. You're not...

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

Avengers infinity War spoilers So. Avengers Infinity War, which isn't really an Avengers film or at least not a complete one. Old Moby predicted exactly how it was going to end from the trailers and that it was announced as part i and ii before they changed their mind, so a lot of it kind of felt li...

Oh I read about Annihilation recently. That they gave up on an international release and gave it to netflix. I might give it a god.

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

The Last Jedi was... okay. Mostly it was uninteresting and boring. I'd read spoilers before hand which is a double edged sword, I wasn't as pissed by some of the stupidity but I wasn't blown away by any twists and lack of revelations as either. The final scenes actually make up a lot of ground in th...

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

How spoilererrific would you like to me? I actually feel different to Shroom. I quite liked it. In facts it's about as best as we can expect a Justice League movie to be from that starting point. Half the league's characterisation is basically very quick origins story but they all get at least a lit...

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

Ever since the man of steel sequel turned into a batman/start of the justice league movie, DCEU has been a short cut. That's why Suicide Squad was such a surprise and a disappointment. It least it could have been something new and different.

Going to see Justice League next week. Will report back.

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

It was a huge thing, and justifiably so, because Winter Soldier mostly holds up. I do think the final act is its weakest point, exactly because the movie feels the need to go into CGI overdrive with an overhyped world-ending threat that can also be conveniently centrally dismantled. For an insidiou...

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

My original review of Thor: Ragnarok. (spellchecked :S) Just saw it. Quite fun but surprisingly lighthearted for a film about Ragnarok. It seemed like a typical marvel movie but more so. The darkness doesn't seem to resound with the over the top comic moments. And I'm annoyed that they killed The Wa...

I love that you have internalised o1 enough to dream about it. Do you remember what intergral tempests look like or is it like you just knew thats what they were in the dream?

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

I thought you'd approve. -- Saw Kingsman: Golden Circle this evening. Very much liked it. It was just over the top fun the whole way. A couple of missteps as others have pointed out. Killing Roxy was annoying but expected from the trailer. Likewise bringing back Harry with barely a hitch. (I'd hoped...

Yeah the jet pack Sam gets in Winter Soldier is something he used in the military. Though I think there was a line there was only one left. Or only one that was nickable offscreen or something. That one was destroyed in WS. The ones he uses in Ant-Man/AoU/CW are upgrade ones. Probably StarkTech in f...

Incidentally, thinking about one more thing: Something that Steve maybe should've done with his friends, because clearly Hawkeye doesn't understand it even after he finds his ass in prison.

Re: Official Movie Review Thread

I feel his action are understandable given his relationship with Bucky and recent loss of Peggy. I can understand exactly why he's not reasonable on that score. But you've proven he's going about things wrong and dangerously. I absolutely agree. In fact in terms of characters I really dig that Stev...
