    The Firm 6.5/10

    Having a bit of a football hooligan film marathon this week. This one's ok and the part of bex is played quite well with the right amount of idiot in there. The part with the little boy and Stanley knife was a lot harder to watch now being a dad and I literally had my hand over my mouth.

    Saw rise of footsoldier and football factory not long ago so next up is I.D and greenstreet. Any others I should watch?

    Silence (2016). Generally enjoy Scorcese films but went in to this with low expectations. Was pleasantly surprised and didn't find it too long or slow at any point. Torn between a 7/10 and a 8/10..... Will go with an 8 because of some of the Japanese actors!

    Hostiles = very good.
    All the money in the world = very good.
    Downsizing = okay.

    Renegades - 3/10 - US Navy SEALS find Nazi gold in an old underwater town behind "enemy lines" during the Yugoslavian Civil War, shame they didn't find a script down there too. It's a barely passable action flick at best and while the story is interesting and "war nerds" like myself will appreciate the effort the production staff went to in getting their hands on the right military equipment in use at the time (had a little nerd-gasm myself), sadly the script and acting is very sub-par with an almost 80's action hero feel to it. Even J.K Simmons fun cameo can't drag the film up into mediocre territory.

    3 billboards outside ebbing Missouri. 8/10
    Or what ever it's called...

    Free screening at my cinema.

    Pretty decent. Well acted by all. Interesting slice of a story and some good quality, over the top, well written characters. 1st new film I've seen this year and a good one to begin with.

    Dunkirk

    Follows the story's of several characters during the evacuation at Dunkirk during WWII. Good film and well worth a watch.

    Hacksaw Ridge - 8.5/10

    Andrew Garfield was really engaging in the lead role. The little epilogue from Desmond Doss at the end added some real weight to the story. The battle scenes were pretty graphic and brutal, though in a "true life" story of war, they shouldn't be anything else. Deffo worth a watch...:)

    Non-Stop. 5/10.

    Summed up when the person I was watching it with said towards the end "it is quite intriguing... But it is crap!"

    To be fair, despite the ridiculousness of the whole thing, I was interested in finding out what was going on. The ending didn't deliver anything interesting though tbh.

    Downsizing - 7/10 unlimited Cineworld screening.

    I actually really enjoyed this film and found it really funny. Christopher Waltz was just electric in it, I waited with baited breath for him to speak. Every scene he was in was just terrific.

    There were downsides (no pun intended) too however. The plot was absolutely all over the place. Not for one minute did I know where the story was going. It was just a total messy shambles of a story. It had about 100 different small stories that didn't at any point seem to come together to form the cohesive whole. It left me a bit baffled but in some ways that didn't really matter as the humour from Waltz's performance just had me hooked.

    Jim and Andy the great beyond

    Really enjoyed it but then I love Jim carrey and Kauffman's humour and then as someone who didn't follow the story at the time found it totally fascinating to see how far Jim went into the role.

    A truly great acting performance from someone mostly seen as a 'funny man' but it seems that digging so deep really did effect him .

    The Snowman - nonsencial rubbish. It has all the murder mystery genre cliches, the character development is terrible, it's very obvious who the killer is, the plot and pacing are poor. 2/10

    Jigsaw, the latest Saw abomination

    Well it was better than I expected but still very silly! If you're a fan of it, worth a watch I guess.

    Renegades 7/10 -It's pretty much a modern day version of Kelly's Heroes in a way but not got the characters.
    Was fine for a low budget action film for an hour or two. For a film like this no need to read much in to the plot and any story line. It's got guns, bullets and explosions. It is what it is.

    Dunkirk - 4/10

    Filmed beautifully, great for showing off Dolby Vision/4K. As a film though it's dull as dishwater, found it hard to keep myself interested

    Mother!

    Jessica Lawrence has grown up a lot since she starred in Teen Girl Archery Challenge, and Aaron Aronofsky impressed me with Old Man Boat Challenge, so I was very keen to see this.

    Trailers and advertising promoted the movie as a taut psychological thriller, but it's actually a rather tedious extended metaphor crammed with biblical and ecological symbolism. Overall, I found it very disappointing.

    I rate Mother! at 16.65 on the Haglee Scale, which works out as 5/10 on IMDB.

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - 8/10

    It’s a dark story full of shocking drama, violence and hatred, but there’s also comedy thanks to the quirkiness in both the characters and the presentation style.

    The characters are colourful and the acting is great, as is the use of the setting and the story which brings up some valid points about how cruel and unfair life can be.

    Although the ending was fitting, I would have preferred less ambiguity and a slightly longer movie.

    Me too, sooo wanted that ending that it could have had, the normal Hollywood fashion, wrap it all up. I want that satisfaction after the journey.

    Still, a good movie, although not my favourite of the year.
