Dune dropped yesterday, watched it at home. Regretted it, it's made to be seen on the biggest screen you can find. Incredible looking film.

Is it any good, or just good looking?

Watched Bond over the weekend. TBF, it was what I wanted from a Bond movie:

Ridiculous plot - Check
Bulletproof Bond - Check
Overplayed baddie - Check
Hot women - Check

Kept me entertained throughout the 3 hours, so no complaints.

I had the same complaint that I’ve had with each of the Daniel Craig bond films in that it felt overly long

Honestly, it's hard to say. It's a first part of two films and it's mostly exposition but I would definitely recommend seeing it. Its 2 and a half hours long and when it ended I coulve kept going

Netflix binge at work:

The Guilty - Considering it’s just set in a police call room I was gripped. Nice twist in it too.

Man of Steel - Henners is one handsome fucker but it felt a bit too Avengers. Wrecking the City and all that. I know it’s the same sort of comic book shit but was hoping for more.

Body of Lies - Leo is a Don in anything he’s in. I’m obsessed with CIA shit at the minute so loved it. Russ Crowe played his part perfectly too.

Heat (again) - One of my favourite ever films, those gun shot sounds are fuckin epic!

Shot Caller - Jaime Lanister stars, belter. Thought it was guna be shite but was class.

All 3 Bourne films one after the other. Brilliant as I’m sure people know.

Halloween Kills was entertaining, even though it didn't really add anything particularly new to the franchise.

Just started Squid Game, quite entraining, like a mix between Parasite and that Japanese movie Battle Royale.

In the Mood for Love - only twenty or so years late to the party on this one, but amazing. Wondering if 2046 which seems to be a follow-up of sorts is worth watching.

Really liked Another Round, great performances from everyone, really tight storyline, never got too didactic or sentimental.

Think a lot of the succession heads on here would enjoy watching Festen, share a lot of the same DNA and think the writers definitely started with it as inspiration.

On the list. Saw the trailer, looks like it's a remake of a Swedish (I think) film I watched a while back.

Titane Think it won the Palme D'or, proper filmaking from the french, visually stunning and you know you are watching a film, this is elevated way above TV, if you go with it depends on your thoughts on body horror, girls and cars, tremendous.

I've held off watching it cos I heard it was so overly and unnecessarily gross. Is it really that bad?

Interested to hear opinion on DUNE as I just don't know what to think of it….
Some interesting characters aside from this Chalamet kid - not having him one bit.
Brolin excellent.
The film looked lovely but didn't feel very expansive.
Lots of promise for Skarsgard and big Dave - could of been used a lot more .
Baddie soldiers were ripped from Aquaman, as for Aquaman himself - Just plays the same character in every film.
Felt like an epic Netflix/apple tv movie.
