THREE BILLBOARDS... - 7.0

Enjoyed this, some excellent performances and Woody Harrelson is one of my favourite actors ... may have made be shed a tear in this ... I think the issue with this was that the trailer was way off the mark, it portrayed it as some sort of slapstick comedy and it certainly isn't that. Worth a watch all the same

RAW - 8.0

French, subtitled film, very different. Going into this I think the less you know about it the better. Some very challenging scenes in it. Kermode awarded it his film of 2017.

Downsizing 5/10

Went in with high hopes after seeing the trailers.

Started out well, then turned shit. Way too long for what it needed to be too.

WIND RIVER - 7.5

Well worth a watch, great setting, includes literally one of the best :eek: WTF :eek: moments I can remember seeing, my jaw nearly hit my knees - don't ask anyone about it so as to not spoil the surprise

MOTHER - 3.0

I thought this was going to be something like Funny Games from what I had read. First half an hour or so I was quite into it, then it turned into a farce, then it turned into an hour more of just complete and utter nonsense which was so chaotic it made me feel uneasy. Had no f.cking clue what it was about at the end, I was literally p1ssed off that I had wasted two hours watching it (when I have a list of films as long as my arm that I want to watch). I was going to spend some time reading reviews to see what critics said about it but I don't think I want to waste any more time on it, can't remember a time a film left me so angry.

Thor Ragnarok - 8/10

FINALLY got a good stream on my Andy box - watched it last night

very funny - think this was deliberate to lighten Thor up a bit and come in line with the rest of the MCU

typical Marvel fare really, if you like it then you'll like this film, but it won't convert anyone

COCO - 8.0

Disney Pixar's latest one based in Mexico on the day of the dead festival. My kids enjoyed it but I think quite a lot of the premise of it will have been above their heads, they liked all the skeletons and stuff anyway. Good story all the way through, a good twist near the end and an excellent case study of the festival/area and traditions.

As with some of the recent Pixar films, plays on the heartstrings at times and had me going right near the end

DADDY'S HOME 2 - 5.0

Love Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, and Mel Gibson and John Lithgow are good in it, but there's not more than a few chuckles in this tbh

Finally got round to watching Logan. Really liked it, Hugh Jackman and Stewart are great as old Logan/Xavier and Dafne Keen is a real find, I hope the MCU picks her up for X23 rather than doing standard Wolverine again. Only downside, for me, is that they're still pressing on with Fox X-Men as this would have been a perfect send off.

Black Panther - 9/10

One of, if not the best Marvel films around.

Only reason I've took a point off is Martin Freeman's american FBI character. Mainly his accent. Very off-putting.

The young lass that plays Black Panthers sister, and who is also in Black Mirror episode - Black Museum, is superb.

Clever in that I actually began to side with the main bad guys view, and understood him, to a certain degree.

Cracking film. Highly recommend.

It's just cool as fuck.

Also saw Black Panther, and I also liked it. Visually it's ace (some ropey CGI at the end aside), some good action, great world building for Wakanda, and a great cast. That it's doubling up as this whole cultural moment for black people is just the cherry, for me.
