    Do any of you chaps maintain a watchlist? I have one on google notes but was wondering if anyone else did the same thing but used any sites/apps to do it properly.

    I was considering using JustWatch, as its handy for seeing which platform movies are available on.

    I started using LetterBoxd this year to track my reviews and movies watched. I quite like it.

    I notice Starship troopers is on ITV4 tonight. I just yesterday discovered that my TV can record to memory stick, so I might set it up to catch that and watch over the weekend. Not seen it for about 20 years!

    Watching films on tv is sacrilege, they cut out some of the film and then riddle it with adverts.

    Especially if the channel in question is ITV. They completely ruin Back to the Future every time they show it.

    "When this baby hits 88 mph, you're gonna see some serious ****"

    They used to just change **** to stuff, but now that whole scene is gone. Yeah, it's not important ITV, it only sets up the whole time travel thing, but don't you worry about it .....

    Escape Room (2019) - 7/10
    (Unlimited Screening)

    An extreme version of the popular group event, which although lacking originality and has a weak ending, is entertaining to watch throughout.

    The story is simple and unoriginal, but the setting starts off strong with some great puzzle rooms and tension.

    However, as the film becomes formulaic, it loses this edge and has to rely on the settings and passable special effects to keep momentum.

    The characters are good and well rounded, each with their distinct personalities and back stories, but the mystery behind the game is very disappointing, and the ending is poor and goes on for far too long.

    The Mule (2019) - 7/10

    A film that, much like its main character, plods along at its own pace, and that’s perfectly fine.

    It’s an enjoyable but predictable story that, apart from the obvious, lacks the spark of something special – there’s never any sense of danger, and the FBI and cartel scenes are done by the numbers.

    Eastwood is very good in the lead as the doddering old man, both charming and bitter as he is stuck in his ways, and brings real depth to the character.

    Got that for tonight.

    Watched Widows 2018 last night, really enjoyed it, decent with a couple of nice twists. 8/10

    https://trakt.tv/ mainly as there's a plugin for Mediaportal that makes it pretty much autonomous

    Much better than expected, perhaps my expectations were low but this had me smiling and felt for the characters. Some of the scenes in cybertron felt like they were straight out of the cartoon which was great.

    Mute - 3/10.

    Can this really be by the same guy who directed Moon and Source Code? (Yes, Warcraft, but that was always destined to be a bit naff)
    Honestly, the whole tone and way it presented itself was terrible. It's like he threw away all that he did before and this was his first film.

    Brawl In Cell Block 99 - 6/10.

    What was the explanation for him effectively being impervious to punishment and being able to kick the crap out of anyone? I didn't ever see one?
    Not a patch on Bone Tomahawk, but he was trying for the same wince inducing moments at least. Strange film.

    A low rent version of saw. Unlikeable characters but keeps you interested. Ending a let down.

    Bohemian Rhapsody 8/10
    Despite not being a huge queen fan, I thoroughly enjoyed this.

    Marathon Man (1976) 8/10

    Great cast, missed this one. Dustin Hoffman in this suspense-thriller.
