TIMDOT wrote: Logan- Best film of the franchise. It starts with a brutal fight scene, the rest of the film kept that brutality. Far from boring.

Train to Busan- Clear cut dynamics and commentary in a novel setting. Achieved some really tense and surprising moments.

American Beauty- Didn't like it. I had a similar disconnect with Donnie Darko. How can you connect with several characters internal strife's when their external world feels imaginary? Definitely not through being pretentious and twee.
I need to visit one of these picket white fence places to see if they actually exist.

….Picket white fences! mate in DC just sent this mail…

TIMDOT wrote: Hacksaw Ridge- Hugo Weaving and the action sequences were really good. Hard to think of other praises for it. Very cliche, maybe revisionist.

12,500 Americans were killed in action on Okinawa, about 100,000 Japanese soldiers. How do you think they died? Natural causes?

I just saw Hacksaw and nobody except left wing hippy fucking retards like even try to dispute that that shit happened.

There's a reason my Grandfather hated the Japanese until he died. He fought em in Bogainville in 1945, wouldn't speak to me after I went and studied in Japan.

THey WERE actually not afraid of death, a truly formidable enemy but soldiers and Marines from the US put steel on steel and went toe to toe with that enemy, proving American exceptionalism yet again. US Army troops cowered on the Kokoda trail and Australians did the fighting, then again some Australian militia ran in the face of elite Japanese Marines banzai charging their positions on Kokoda. It all comes down to having balls. Some troops, Australian and American just had balls and stood up to the Japanese, and defeated them, but it was bloody.

The British? They cut and run, left Australia to burn in 1942, fair enough, they had their own fight but the stopping and rollback of the Japanese came from big ball motherfuckers who went into hand to hand and close quarters battle to defeat a fanatical enemy.

You or I probably wouldn't have the balls but at least show some respect to those that did. American taxes and blood basically gave you the freedom and relative wealth you and I now enjoy.

Logan - Loved it. Kept forgetting it was a Marvel movie. Wouldn't surprise me if Keen gets an Oscar nom.

Bad Boys (Sean Penn)
Carlito's Way - still great. Sean Penn is hilarious.
Menace II Society. Alright but prefered Boyz N The Hood.

Back to F-bender, the world seems to have forgotten the domestic violence and abuse from 2010..

Rogue One - really disappointed. The CGI was dodgy and Tarkin and Vader didn't even sound like either of them.
I sure Coogan or Rory Bremner couldve got Cushings voice right.
Did Earl Jones do Vaders voice? Weird all round and I didn't like the film overall.

Patriots Day a let down after enjoying Deepeater Horizon.

I need a film to blow me away. It's not happened for a long time.

I enjoyed it maybe because I expected it to be so bad.
It wasn't the explosion and fx. I can take the shit with a pinch of salt but the tension in the lead up was quite good.

What's a stonewall classic?

Bad Santa 2. It was okay, opening scene was probably the best part of the whole movie though. Thurman Murman as an adult was pretty funny, actually the same guy.

Rogue One actually as well for me and I saw it not to long after release but have been watching more TV shoes lately.

Like those above I'd agree it was meh at best.

The Great Wall, bloody awful, Matt Damons worst film for sure, puts on some shoddy Irish/Scottish accent type thing and even Willem Dafoe is in it?! How'd they manage to get Damon and Dafoe to do a film like this?

Moonlight . Properly cinematic film, tone, mood, aesthetics and music are excellent, in the age of the death of cinema this movie stands out.
