Room

8/10 - would've been even higher but the second half dragged on a bit. Liked it overall though.

Also watched 6 days but was falling asleep on the train so either its just shite or I was really tired...maybe both.

He's actually very good in it.

Saw it yesterday.

Very good film, I pity people who don't like Marvel films, they are pure entertainment.


If you like Marvel movies.

Thor, Iron Man 1 & 2, The Avengers and Logan are good.

Iron Man is the only strong franchise Marvel has produced, generally their follow-up movies have been shit.

Fair enough if you like them (and obviously billions of people do), I just think we've become oversaturated with them this past decade (ever since The Dark Knight).

It's lazy and stale imo. Hollywood churns out an incessant amount of these movies because they bring in the most money.

It also means there are movies of other genres that aren't being produced because all the film companies care about is making new hero movies, sequels or spin-offs.


I don't think its lazy at all, anything but with regards to what Marvel are doing, creating a shared Universe on screen is a massive undertaking and as you said , it makes the most money because the people want it, same way as Star wars.

I don't think it is stopping other movies from being made, Get Out? Pacific Rim? Fast & Furious? Planet of the Apes? Dunkirk, none of these are comics.

Yes we're over saturated because DC and Fox's X-Men but Fox is being sold to Disney and DC can't get their act together, Marvel is its own studio so really they are the only ones I look to for pumping out Hero movies and they've done a fantastic job.

Quite frankly these franchises have saved Cinema, before Marvel came out Cinema was struggling and struggling badly, now its got billion dollar franchises running through their screens on a quarterly basis .......... believe me they are not complaining.

Black Panther is tearing it up right now globally and being celebrated, what other movie / franchise has ever been that much of an event .......... we still have Infinity War to go.

They bring in the most money and they are all different and that's why they are so good. They are also interlinked with each other, well the marvel ones and the world awaits when they all get together to take on the major villain, Thanos.

Just got back from Black Panther. Didn't know much about BP the character, not as much as the popular superheroes and thus not a big fan. All changed now. Just wow. It's like they outdo themselves every film that comes out. Had the right amount of everything. The comedic moments were brilliantly placed, the action and seriousness and the emotional moments up there alongside jack and rose, jaws dying and zac efron character in high school musical coming good.

Also watched war of the planet of the apes last night. That was quality. Now that was emotional. I want an ape. Someone buy bale for me.

Yeah it was good, only thing I didn't like was that sh*tty CGI that Marvel have been using ever since Spiderman - Homecoming.

Not sure what they've done with the old CGI crew but whoever's doing it now is not doing a good job and I mean in particular on the actual characters, for e.g the last Kilmonger vs Panther fight, they looked like little stick men, same as Spiderman did.
Now compare that to Black Panther in Civil War he looked great every time and that's because the Russo brothers like to use stuntmen and actors as much as possible.

But even saying that, the CGI characters in GOTG were still much better but I think they were motion captured.

Fegie needs to get on this new CGI problem.

It, the 2017 version

The original was so good that this was never going to live up to it and it didnt. Basically the same storyline which is fine but Pennywise ffs, the original was so much scarier. He didnt look like a robot like this one does

Seen none of them besides Three Billboards.

I just hope it cleans up at the Oscars.

Very happy to see Rockwell won.

Yeah, pulling for Oldman to win.

Though I wouldn't mind DDL winning just to cap off a legendary career- but he already has enough Best Actor awards.

Such a shame he's retiring, one of the finest actors of all time.

As you said, DDL has won enough awards tbh.

Gary needs to win one.

This year, Gary deserves to win it - over every damn actor nominated.

Maze runner 3. Not bad not bad

A physical fist fight was in the cinema before the movie. Hilarious. Some people didnt want to give the seats to whom they belonged.
