ditto! i'd normally try and elaborate, but shit pretty much covers it. predictable, and takes ages to go nowhere at all.

You read the book? The skimmed over so much, would have served better as a mini series or something.

nope, didn't read the book - did you? quite glad i went into it in the dark really, as no doubt it'd have appeared even shitter had i read the book prior.

i didn't read gone girl either, but i thought the film was decent. the plot had holes, but i remember being quite into the film throughout, it always seemed like it was going somewhere. girl on the train was just a snooze fest.

i thought it might have been better going in blind but i guess not. I read it and i liked it, decent holiday book thriller. They gloss over so much in the film though, plus no matter how much mascara they put on emily blunt she's still emily blunt not an alcoholic pig like in the book

Hunt for the Wilderpeople - great. Very funny and poignant

it definitely sounds like it'd have worked better as a mini series. i felt sorry for blunt, she was pretty much the only redeeming thing about the film.

thought the directing was poor too. like i say, gone girl was far from perfect, but at least fincher's craftsmanship never disappoints.

Sandler haters;

You're not a fan, you'll never get the humour. If you found Dave Letterman unfunny you just won't get that school of American humour. It's absurd in a really specific way and I grew up with it/love it.

90% of Monty Python is fucking unfunny shit. Go back and watch the TV show. Every episode.

The UK has produced so many bad, unfunny shows it's mind boggling they actually have a reputation for comedy.

Rogue One looks good. I need to stop watching these trailers though, as they give away too much of the plot, which does detract from the film when you do get around to watching it.

L'Odyssee: good film. Not for everyone I imagine but I liked it a lot.

In Grenoble, France mate, I live here. Not sure of the UK release date. Worth a look though.

ah. On a separate note, did a film called Un petit boulot get a wide release over there?

I think so. Haven't seen it yet. Love Romain Duris in everything i've seen him in though. Chooses his films well.

Spectre. Had about 10 bond films crammed into one, helicopters, cars; epic locations including Mexico, London, Rome, Tangier, Austrian snow scene, train scene, badass villain. Lea Seydoux was good.

Great film the only let down maybe bond himself just seemed a bit wooden and Christophe Waltz's end scene. I wanted to punch Q in the face a few times also.

Once Upon A Time In The West. The best western ever made and it doesn't even have Eastwood.

It's good but I still prefer the Wild Bunch.

Captain Fantastic- Good film but doesn't do any good for the public's perception of lefties. It would have added an extra element if the father considered killing himself instead of conforming.

Once Upon A Time In The West- Best western.

Mean Streets- Great improvisations.

Casino- De Niro's relationship with his wife is many times more believable than with his girlfriend in Heat. Which was released in the same year.

Laughing out loud My thoughts exactly, you watch a film like that and take away from it that De Niro's relationship with his other half is more believable than in Heat. Roll Eyes
