One of my favs that, so good

White Boy Rick. Set in gritty 80s Detroit, Matthew Mahogany sells guns to try and support his teenage son and daughter. Based on a true story this film goes on to include police informants, drugs and prostitution. I enjoy an ending where they include what happened to the people in real life. Good film.

Bodied. 10 minutes in I was wondering what I was watching. Middle class 8 mile??? I laughed multiple times.

Upgrade - fun schlocky nonsense, some great violence and fight scenes. Recommend if you want something stupid and Verhoeven-y with a modern twist.

Big recommend on this one, reminded me of The Hateful Eight. Actually it's a lot like The Hateful Eight, structure, character stories being intertwined. Really enjoyed this one!

'Aquaman' - worst cover of Toto's 'Africa' EVER (and that was the highlight of the flick).

Is it really good or have you just been brainwashed into thinkning it's good because it features an asian american family?

My personal top ten films of 2018, in order, none of this modern they are not in order bullshit
1. Mandy . Hands down the best film of the year, no argument, Niccy Cage is back after 15 years!
2. Upgrade . Amazing sci fi on a very low budget, proving great ideas and incredible writing trumps all.
3. Hostiles . Christian Bale never letting us down in a brutal Western.
4. You Were Never Really Here. Terrific script but the wrong director, this scottish lady tried to make it all artfull but in the hands like a procedural master like Michael Mann it could of been a classic.
5. The Phantom Thread. I really thought that PTT had dissapeared up his own arsehole after Iherent Vice an the shitty scientology movie but I was wrong, ignore the very boring period this is placed in and this is a great movie.
6. The Killing Of A Sacred Deer . Weird, defitnitley weird, but this greek guy makes truly original films which is rare these days, saying that I completely understand if a lot of people hate it.
7. The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs . Just a great fresh but still traditional take on the western, the world of filmaking could really do with more Coen brothers.
8. Han Solo A Star Wars Story. Really wanted to hate this but apart from Donald Glover ( who I love in Atlanta) was pure entertainment, none of that metoo timesup bullshit that was all over Rian Johnsons apalling The Last Jedi, politiscing a beloved franchise like star wars ( i watched the first in the cinema with my dad at the age of 5) is really beyond the pale, remember this is a galaxy far far away and has no business getting wrapped up in trendy left wing politics, George Lucas himself has said as much using coded diplomatic words.
9. Thats it, Ive read all the film lists but disagree with most

Bird Box.

I never watch anything scary but I was intrigued by the hype and was on days in work so it passed some time.

Thought it was pretty good and haven’t stopped thinking about it.

Good that George and everyone finally sees what I saw.
