DC movies are the only comicbook movies I have time for. Trailer has all the hallmarks of a dark Nolan era Batman movie. Give me that anyday of the week over all that Marvel comicbook guff cinema-goers have had shoved down their throats for over a decade now.

Beyond the the first Reeves era Superman the first 2 Batmans & Nolan stuff DC is terrible imo. Suicide Squad was painfully bad and how they fucked up B Vs S with that source material is beyond me. Should have been so good.

Infinity War & Endgame were great for what they were.

Can't see Phoenix being involved in this flick and it to go all 'Ben Affleck' - purely from the trailer(s) you can see how influential his presence is.

Rocketman. The lad from Kingsman was surprisingly good. Entertaining and worked well as a musical when it could have been cringe.

Aladdin. The animation is far better. Will Smith isn’t anywhere near Robin Williams’ Genie despite that it was his character that’s most fun in this remake. The rest of the cast is flat.

Should have added the Joker film does look good. They need to chill with the drip-feeding trailers though. Too revealing.

Joker looks great - can see Oscar nods for Joaquin and Todd Phillips potentially.

Not sure if painting the Joker as a victim of society and hence giving him an ‘excuse’ for what he becomes is really what America needs right now.

Just re-watched This is England 86, such a great show. Can’t recall a film/series with such dark & bleak storylines which has moments of absolute piss yourself humour. The ginger chips scene in the first episode is pure gold.

Can’t wait for Joker. Fully expect his Joker to be superior to Heath Ledgers. Also agree that DC are the only ones making comic book films worth watching. The marvel universe stuff is awful

Spent 2 plus hours waiting for something noteworthy to happen in the new Tarantino. Can't fault the performances of Pitt or DiCaprio but expected much, much more from the film 'cos of the Director. Unlike most of Tarantino's flick's this 'un ain't worth a re-visit.

Liked the first Thor and both GotG have been decent but everything else is a massive yawn.

Can't believe people get worked up about Avengers stuff. Only made it halfway through Black Panther.

Give us Dredd II

A slow burner but I really liked it. Should be pretty interesting to see what he chooses as his final film. Hopefully not Star Trek.

Winter Soldier and Thor Ragnarok are decent, latter down to Taika Waititi directing it

Yep concur here. Didn’t like this at all. Even less than his last.

Saw It part 2 as well, very disappointed. Strong unpleasant start then downhill. Bill Hader kept it watchable

I actually quite liked IT 2 - admittedly way too long but decent jump scares. Could have done with more Pennywise.

I found the first one about as scary as Goosebumps. Is the new one actually scary with the flip to adulthood?

I jumped once and did not feel remotely scared. The start is very strong and unpleasant but the rest is all special effects set pieces. Much preferred the first.

Strong and unpleasant is an intriguing descriptor, can you expand without giving anything away?
