    I really liked the juxtaposition between the comedic element of the friend and the main story.

    I went to see Us last night and it's also excellent and has a similar vibe. Mr Peele is a very exciting director.

    The Dirt - Netflix

    7/10

    I enjoyed this a lot more than Bohemian Rhapsody, even though the music isn't as good (not really a fan of glam metal). It seems to have gotten withering reviews but their lifestyle's made for more interesting drama.

    As I'm not as familiar with Motley Crue I wasn't really bothered how accurate the portrayal of the band members was.

    Went to see a film I helped kickstart 7 years ago ! "Being Frank": The Chris Sievey story. Wonderful documentary about the genius of the man behind Frank Sidebottom.

    Highly recommend 10/10

    The mule. 8/10
    Absorbing great cast. Another thoughtful gem from Clint Eastwood.

    I loved watching them as a kid in the 80’s.

    That theme tune!

    The night eats the world 7/10

    Slightly different take on the zombie film and one of the better ones i have seen lately. It's fairly light on dialogue as the main character spends a lot of time alone, but it's very watchable all the same.

    Definitely recommend if you like your zombie apocalypse films.

    A Quiet Place

    Decent enough but not as good as I thought it would be from reviews. It was more diverse than I expected, but didn't go deep enough into anything to make it interesting.

    6/10

    Us - 6/10

    Yea, I get he likes to make social commentary within his films and there's the bigger 'message'....but if you are advertising something as a horror then it should at least be scary in some form or another....and it was as flat as a pancake in that regard.

    It was good up until they leave the house, then it turned into just a slasher horror.

    I have just at the end of "Predator: If It Bleeds", which is an anthology of short stories based on the Predator franchise. And by that I mean only Predator 1 & 2 (one even 'stars' P2's Harrigan). It's superb. Every single story is a worthy addition to the mythos and wipes the floor with anything made after Predator 2. These are stories written by people who actually watched and cared about the 2 films. If they filmed them (kind of like Netflix "... & Robots" anthology) is would be awesome. Instead, they let Shane Black make his abomination. Such a waste.

    Ok next movie in the lineup - Kong (Endgame) plot - Kong is loose in London destroying the city bit by bit. An unseen Apache Longbow destroys him in 5 seconds flat with 2 Lazer guided hellfire missiles, the end. Will make for a cool movie that will if you can suspend your belief of a 100ft monkey running round London.

    American made. Pretty garbage, disappointing if you know something of the real story. Tom Cruise is a crap actor, hard to take him serious, no story just a lot of short scenes put together. The only good bit is at end whe he is shot.
