ppl saying they don't like Rouge One but not explaining why.

Moonlight- Brilliant execution for the budget. The character dynamics felt fresh.

Get Out- Good. About racism but doesn't give solutions.
The main argument against Samuel L Jackson's comments about not choosing an American main character and also this idea of '% of representation against population' are that the whole earth should be represented well, borders are a secondary thought.

Miller's Crossing- Great dialogue. One of the Coen's best.

Ghost in the Machine- On its own merits, I liked it. It has bits and pieces pulled from across the franchise. It really needed more texture visually, smoke and fog. Acting-wise, the best scene was the 'cup of tea' scene followed directly by a fucking sick action scene with Takeshi Kitano's almost non-acting.
In-universe answers win over the idea of white-washing. But in-universe answers are dumb and there should have been more Asian actors.

Prequels so often receive a tough critique as they rightly or wrongly get compared to the original film. It was never going to live up to the hype of one of the biggest cabaret musicals of all time.

Rogue One . Unparalelled shit, if you listen to the hollywood reporters podcast the business she lays it out that Gareth Edwards truly fucked it up and was still fully paid but completely sidelined on the set by a senior old american male producer who came in and uncredited helmed the entire movie, reminds me of Ben affleck and Matt Damon still recieving props for the (oscar winning) writing of Good Will Hunting even though William Goldman revealed years ago in his book that he wrote it for over $1million and Weinstein paid him to keep quiet about it for a number of years, so much fakery and lying in hollywood Laughing out loud

Beauty and the beast - just not that good. Emma Thompson singing was awful. Ewan Mgregor was amazing

Ghost in the shell was fucking terrible. Some of the CGI looked like it was done 15 years ago Eek
Everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves

That is so weird in his book he claims the complete opposite and says he wrote the entire thing, hard to know what is the truth now Puzzled

What? The CGI was good in it.
Some of GITS's best moments show how what section 9 is fighting would affect normal people. That's why the 'cup of tea' scene is the best. It needed the visuals from Black Rain with the ideas behind Italian neo-realism.

Found it pretty funny and entertaining. More twists needed and maybe didn't go far enough with the gore / ridiculousness.

Free Fire. Promising start, Sharlto Copley stole every scene he was in then it just got a little stale and repetitive 3/5
