I liked it, but I can understand why people wouldn't. It's a shame that you turned it off after the first hour though, that part is indeed boring.

Starts very slow with lots of dialogue, suppose you need a little patience to start with… i thought it was ok, nothing special and nothing i have not seen from QT

Hateful Eight and Deadpool, both excellent. Anyone seen any new Korean Thrillers?

Hateful Eight was one for the cinema imo.

Loads of dialogue and that slow pacing (by today's generation I guess) is to be expected going into a Tarrantino movie really.

It's odd really I didn't find it slow or long, each to their own I suppose.

Lots of dialogue wasn't the problem. Some of his best scenes are long exchanges of dialogue (first scene from basterds etc) but I dunno, I found very little of the dialogue in hateful eight as engaging as nearly all his other movies.

Maybe I need to watch it again but easily ranks as one of his worst films imo on first watch.

I think he gets carried away in his own self indulgence and ruins films. I was enjoying the start and the build up half way through then when you know everything it's pointless and you feel like you wasted 60 minutes viewing gore and predictable SLJ scenes.

That opening sequence though, camera takes an age to pan out… went to get a cup of tea while was waiting for that to end

Triple9 - Great cast. Reviews are pretty poor so wasn't expecting much. I thought it was good, underated for sure, some great action sequences. Plot is a little disjointed in places but overall one of the better movies I've watched lately.

Thought that was brilliant. Film certainly looked good at least.

Deadpool - budget restrictions were nicely handled, but still felt superhero-lite. Not a bad thing as it was very funny.

Grimsby- A lot of the jokes fell flat but there were few good laughs in it. The couple action scenes were actually good (for an English film).

Videodrome- The actual videodrome is very fucking scary; "electrified clay wall". It tries to say a lot about such things as corporate greed/ cynicism and is one big provocation towards those scared of the new media.
In the extras there's an interview with Cronenberg talking about censors and he blurts some shit likening them to left wingers and feminists because they "don't understand the context". It's a very good film but the fact he tried to hide the fact he's a misogynist irks me.

Scum- Unlucky the director only made a few movie films. Distillation of real events is always powerful to me.

Billed as a comedy but not funny. Looks great (cinematography, sets, costume etc) and script is decent but story felt flimsy and as a whole disjointed. Should have been more farcical or have a solid caper/maguffin whodunnit story.

^ Yeah same, thought it was a shoe in for the animated movie oscar. Never seen a film like it, the most emotive animated movie Ive watched.
