Watched Greyhound last night.

Was much better than I expected.

Some decent tension and all wrapped up in 90 mins.

It's a concert 'film', but mostly posting as this was one of the best things I've seen this year.

Love this movie. Good to put it on during the summer and watching the feel good Everest scenes.
Along the same line, I booted up an old hard drive over the holiday break and refound La première étoile. Quite enjoyable as well. Next up is les bronzés font du ski!

The Midnight Sky - Started off promising but ended up being a bit gash. Not enough info given for the story but suppose it was meant to be like that. Nearly cried at the ending.

The Saint 1997 - Love a bit of Val Kilmer (his hair in Heat is one of the best haircut’s ever). Very cheesy but enjoyed it.
Young Elisabeth Shue gives my balls cold fusion Cool

Mile 22. Typical Wahlberg action film. Enjoyed it even though the story was pretty obvious from the start. His character gets a little bit annoying at times but some nice fight scenes.

Ooooh yes one of the best ponytails in cinematic history for sure. Would be very disappointed if it was revealed to be a stick on!

Greed - was well up for another Coogan/Winterbottom film but fell way short of the mark for me. I know it was satirical but by the end of it pretty much every character was getting on my tits, especially Coogan’s version of Philip Green who by the end was unbearable.

The Dissident - A fascinating look at the murder of Jamal Khashoggi and the role that the KSA has in controlling the countries narrative via twitter. Was a Brian Fogel project, same guy that did Icarus. Definitely worth a watch.

And if you’re wondering why it’s on none of the major streaming platforms:

Yeah greed wasn’t very good was it? The writers must have really enjoyed the word ‘fucking’ to have included it in every other sentence. Got pretty tiring

13 Hours. Can’t believe it was a true story. Typical Michael Bay with big action scenes but done really well in my opinion.

The Town. I’d watched it before but couldn’t remember what happened. Was ok. Passed the time on my night shift anyway. Boston accents were annoying.

I quite liked greed, it's fluff and the fact you found coogan unbearable i see as a bit of a compliment. Green was like that going by all the accounts i've read on him as unbelievable as that seems.

Possessor - pretty good and Cronenberg jnr has a bright future I reckon. Not as good a body swap setup as the latest twilight zone season approach though. Or the classic Denzel Washington ‘fallen’

The Rental - good ‘Airbnb horror’. Started well but lost its way a bit.

Greenland - really liked this.

Wonderwoman 84 - another good body swap horror. was better than expected. Put me in mind of old ghostbusters or something. Gal Gadot would get it BIG TIME!

You’re probably right. Coogan did a good job of portraying him. Though I didn’t like the ending either.

Boring day so thought I'd catch up on some stuff.

Synchronic (2019) - 7/10 - Love anything sci-fi/time travel and I couldn't really fault it, just could have been better. Anthony Mackie giving a better performance than Altered Carbon for sure.

Pieces of a Woman (2020) - 10/10 - Love this type of film, heartbreaking.

Marriage Story (2019) - 10/10

Let Her Out (2016) - 7/10 - Rewatch. Above average horror.

Thoroughbreds (2017) - 9/10 - Rewatch but love the dialogue in this film, love Olivia Cookes performance and always sad to see Anton Yelchin.

The Gambler (2014) - 8/10 - Marky Mark at his best, love this film.

Now to put on Lost in Translation and sleep.

Also have a soft spot for a time travel film, not seen this one before.

Recently re-watched Twelve Monkeys, forgot how much I like this film, Brad and Bruce deliver some great scenes.

Another film worth a watch is Los cronocrimenes. Gets a mixed bag of reviews, but I enjoyed the concept.

Such a great film!

Before I saw Bacurau I saw Kleber Mendonça Filho's previous film Aquarius in the cinema with the director doing a Q&A after. I reckon it's a better film but it's not as action packed. It's got the same grand feeling though.

Surprised myself by really getting into Gerwig's Little Women. Not a fan of period dramas, but the non-linear approach was impressive. Great cast obviously. Also caught Deepwater Horizon which I enjoyed for the same reasons as Patriots Day. Berg and Wahlberg work well together.
