Just watched Mid90s, written and directed by Jonah Hill, it was quite good actually 7/10.
White Heat (1949) 8/10
I have been meaning to watch some James Cagney films (same with Bogart etc) ever since visiting Universal Studio's theme park in Florida years back. I recall that there was a ride through the movies and it depicted Cagney - since this time I have always meant to watch some of his movies but never got round to. It is one of those true Hollywood classic's so say no more!
Spider verse at one of the luxe cinemas. Incredible, best spiderman and maybe best super hero movie for me.
Even the girlfriend never fell asleep!
Most definitely a must watch for everyone.
Not last night but only couple days ago was night school... Yeah it had its moments 4/10
That was probably 'The great movie ride' over at Disney's Hollywood studios
A real shame more haven't seen it. It's one of my favourite movies of this year. (2018 before someone gets smart)
A few more you need to watch.
The Public Enemy, Angels with Dirty Faces and The Roaring Twenties.
He has done some good movies, but these are his best in my opinion.
Recommended by someone here in some thread, somewhere.
Really thought it was quite amusing on concept and Mike judge humour.
Decent enough comedy and satire on the 2000s American.
Rampage - 7/10
Much better than I expected! Do love a Dwayne Johnson film to just tune out and enjoy some cheesy action
Complete & utter garbage
Man on the moon 7/10
Andy Kaufman biopic. Didn't really know that much about him to be honest. But enjoyed this film all the same.
I've not seen Man on the Moon, but hear the documentary on its making, released in 2017, is worth a watch (it's on Netflix):
Totally agree .Angels with Dirty Faces is one of my all time favourite movies.
I was actually reading about this and was considering watching it too
I didn't know much about Kaufman (before my time, I guess) but The Great Beyond is a superb documentary. Well worth a watch.
I really like Carrey (his personal nutcase anti vaxxer opinions aside) he seems like a really decent guy and someone who absolutely loves what he does. From the first time I saw Ace Ventura in my teens he's been a firm favourite of mine.
He was certainly very good in man on the moon as Kaufman.
I will probably watch the documentary tonight.
Also saw bird box over the weekend. Pretty good for the type of film it is I think. Definitely at least a 6/10.
A couple of scenes were a bit ridiculous and I saw the twist at the end coming well in advance, but worth a watch all the same.
The Favourite - Latest film from Director Yorgos Lanthimos. (The Lobster, Killing of a Sacred Deer). I'd say his best work to date too. Great cast, wonderful score and interesting story in this period Dramady set in early 18th century England. Emma Stone is enchanting as usual, but the whole cast are great. My feeling after watching it is that i must watch it again, immediately! 9/10
Not as terrible as I had been led to expect.
A terrible sub villian ( see what I did there?)
Will have to see this, I do like Lanthimos quirky films. Enjoyed the lobster and killing of a sacred deer.
