Alien Covenant- Explains nothing from Prometheus. Thought Prom was moving towards a new phenomenon within the universe but nope. Only the first interaction with aliens was tense. That characters base was cool, especially the drawings, Giger's art coming full circle. Sexualized gore=/=tension.
Costumes by Craig Green were great and miles ahead of Prometheus's, which I remember were crap. Guns half covered with rails are fucking ugly.

still one of the best, with classic footage of 10th Mountain going to toe-to-toe with the Taliban for the first time, Aussie SAS providing eyes on for air support, saved those boys, the A-SAS went to front of the lunch queue the next day at Bagram. Opening narration by George W himself:

Trainspotting 2. Quite liked it. Didn't have high hopes though…

Dunkirk - really, really very good. Both Nolan and and Zimmer's best. Go and see this in a cinema

Baby Driver. I didn't like it.

The choreographed sequences at the start were cheesey. Jamie Foxx token bad black criminal. I like fight club, a lot, but do you need to put a clip of Brad Pitt in flub club on tv in to make your film cool? Music plays the biggest part of this film and there is so much from House of Pain to Dave Brubeck to that David Axelrod sample famously used by Dr Dre… made think it was Edgar Wright's personal Spotify playlist if he has one. Using a Subaru is quite a good choice for a getaway car and focusing on the brake calliper with Subaru branding to tell the audience it's a Subaru/product placement was also cool but it's a fucking Subaru which is not cool. That whole end sequence was absolutely ridiculous as was Baby's mix tape story. Kevin Spacey is really just there for jokes… if you ever want to see him in a good movie you would rewatch the Usual Suspects.

I agree, wanted to like it but trying to do a 'cool' / cult film and being anything but cool is a bit of a fail.

And a bit light on the driving action as well considering.

Tried Okja, painfully cheesy, forced acting, redundant plot.
Managed to watch Pusher 1, Pusher 2 & Pusher 3 again though,
highly recommend them to everyone, some of my favourite films.

Baby Driver- Enjoyable and had good fast pacing. The coffee trip at the start was worse than Toby Maguire's Spiderman emo street scene. Jamie Foxx was completely unconvincing.

It Comes At Night- Up there with some of the best looking horror films. The fade transitions from sparsely lit scene to another with different types of light sources made it look like unwanted light beams on the screen. That was cool I'd never seen that before. The director is one to watch.

Dunkirk- The 3 person perspective sometimes interweaving shows Nolan's editing mastery. It condenses various first hand accounts but the emotions would have had true staying power if it didn't end on a high note.
This film gives you everything you wouldn't get from a history book, take that as you will. War films shouldn't be positive.

Dunkirk

Predictable, shallow and boring. Beyond all the visual pump and circumstance just another generic self-congratulatory war movie. Shit. But the Brits will eagerly gobble it all up.

Also BF109's turnfighting. Roll Eyes

Yep, history is written by the winners. Not sure a version glorifying the Nazi's would do well.
