I thought Mad Max was a good reboot too, looking forward to seeing Bladerunner

Move the discussion to the politics thread.

Logan Lucky- Really good. A reenvisioning of the Oceans series in the working class rural south.

IT- The people in the showing were loud and quiet at the right times. This meant you couldn't really avoid being scared by the jump scares. It was scary.

Pad's been quiet about Blade Runner. You seen yet or not commenting? I've seen twice now & although flawed (like the original) it feels like a true extension of the story & cityscape. Basically, nothing like a modern day blockbuster.

Yip - Just keeping quiet - first time in a while I have been to flicks by myself. No Aurora!
LOVED it and seeing with the other half this weekend.
Wasn't keen on Leto's character. Not much to say that aint been said. Visuals just blew me away and the pacing was perfect for me.
8/10

Now the trailer for Last Jedi - that gave me goosebumps!
PORGS for the disney cash back win!!!!

The French Connection.

Somehow I downloaded La French Connection which is an entirely different more recent film and I didn't realise for 10 minutes while it was playing in French. Anyway, I've been watching the proper French Connection on and off for 4 days now. I like the gritty bleak 70s New York setting which is reminiscent of Mean Streets.

Gene Hackman is very good. Won't bother with II though.

Bladerunner 2049 . "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe" Mark Kermode said it took him 30 minutes until he knew he was in safe hands, it took me about 75 mins, loved the pacing like all the best 70's movies, probably won't suit generation snowflake and their adhd lack of concentration.

The film asks more questions than it answers, def needs a second watch, I personally feel that K was Anna's twin just not her born one, so a decoy, also Deckards nature is probably human though Hampton Fancher lets it hang.

Two big moans one the deadened washed out look of the film flattened the whole thing for me, would of liked some pop ala the first one and two the fucking soundtrack, crappy hints of Vangelis's masterwork with a constant BWAAAAH sound throughout, nice acting by Ford and Gosling, Leto can fuck off obviousy I'd have gone with Mike from neighbours.

The new Blade Runner is the film of 2017 for me. Amazing piece of work.

It had the attention to detail but just didn't have new equivalents of the blaster, light umbrella, plastic mac, graphic elements (e.g. magazine covers or police spinner markings), Frank Lloyd Wright's wall reliefs etc… I liked the new spinners and K's jacket. A lot less flare.

Blade Runner 2049: The Blade Runner really kicked some ass in this one. Looking forward to when he takes on the Russkies in Afghanistan in next year's movie.

Blade Runner III: The Blade Runner gets captured by the Russkies but in the end drives his tank into their leader's helicopter, therefore winning and proving that the Blade Runner is the ultimate freedom fighting machine.

Lacked the visual depth of previuos Blade Runner films, would have liked to see more frank lloyd right reliefs in the Russkie POW camp

Saw it last night. The dialogue was a little corny in places but really got into it as the story progressed. Still think Vince is shit actor though.

Well they did boot out Johansson at the last minute, probably a good call he's hugely overrated, thought he did something solid with Arrival before I saw in the credits that Max Richter did the good bits. Unfortuately probably at Ridley's meddling request they then brought in the generic Hans Zimmer rent-a-score team. Could've been a whole lot bolder in that department.

Blade Runner IV. Back to basics here. I like how he chopped guys in half with a .50 cal machinegun. Cool

Blade Runner VI: As blade runner ages he starts training a new, younger blade runner. This time it's a black woman. The blade runner for the 29th century. Truly inspirational stuff.

Brawl in Cell Block 99 is great, think a few on here would really like it. Absolutely brutal, slow boil, Vince Vaughan is great in it. By the director and writer of Bone Tomahawk last year, which was also amazing.

Great shout, Vince is really good in it makes a nice change from those syrupy xmas romcoms he coasts on, like how they slowed down the fighting for his 45 year old body, shouldn't work but it does, all the head stampy scenes weren't the best of there type think the director needs to have a chat with the master of that stuff Gasper Noe, one of the better fighting/violent films of the year and a nice turn by Don Johnson.

dragged across concrete is Vaughns next film with same director. Seems like hes doing a 'Neeson' and reinventing himself as an all action take no prisoners action man….
