    Probably why there is so much tosh about; so many garbage films make money.

    The Predator is crap and made double its budget. Hellboy (2019) is crap and flopped, making less than its $50m budget. Maybe the difference there is that more people know what Predator is and few know what Hellboy is.

    Transformers is popular. Michael Bay could have made Transformers films until the cows came home, with each being worse than the last. People would pay to see them regardless and they'd keep on making a pile of cash. I'm kind of surprised that isn't what happened. I'm glad it didn't though; as a Transformers fan, I was fed up of the crap he kept putting out.

    "Hunter Killer". Not at all bad actually. My wife and I really enjoyed it and it kept us engaged throughout. Good work by all the leads (once I got past the idea of a Scot being captain of a US Navy sub :)).

    The Current War (2019) - 4/10

    A bit boring at times, as although the characters are supposed to be great visionaries and inventors, they all seemed a bit dull.

    There is some good acting from the starry cast, but the delivery of the story lacks the spark and sizzle of a good tale.

    The pacing is a bit slow, and although the period effects looked good, the stylized camera shots felt unnecessary and were distracting.

    Managed to catch a screening of Godzilla: King of the Monsters 7/10 better then I expected.

    What you would expect from a Godzilla movie, Action and big monsters fighting.

    I was more interested in the little Easter eggs, Like the dr who said shes a 3rd gern monarch agent and show a photo
    (all females all twins)

    Ghidorah has always been one of my favorite out of all of the monster and Im glad they did not disappoint with the look of it.
    I dont know why but every time I saw Godzilla walking I would imagine Brock Lesnar walking to a ring (must be the neck).
    I also kept imagining the plays eleven in stranger things would use psychic ability next in the Ghidorah scene.

    They show a lot of monsters but I dont know why they dont show Kong, im sure if all the others monsters are moving so would kong, I would assume kong is also a alpha and would assume it would come to stop Ghidorah

    I just cant see how they will get Godzilla vs Kong to work unless its a prequel .

    With him being an ape, I assume Kong can't swim and is therefore stuck on Skull Island!

    Maybe but he wont be much of a king if he's a prisoner on his own island but I assume something else must have up on skull island which kept him busy, I feel he is more like a warden keeping all the prisoner in on skull island.

    either way so far all three movies have been good, skull island was the best IMO.
    Im really looking forward to the next one but im not sure what they would do after that, I wold like to see some more new monsters.

    Bird Box on Netflix. Finally got round to this and quite enjoyed it, nothing really special but I am a sucker for dystopian/post apocalyptic films. 3/5

    Most enjoyable, one on the list that paid off.

    Watched it a couple of nights ago, struggle to decide between 6 and 7 so will go 6½/10. Generally not bad, worth a watch.

    Hellboy (2019)

    Garbage, terrible nonsense.


    Alita Battle Angel
    At times I thought this was great then it just seemed to wander off topic. It was okay but nothing special.

    Mostly fun and enjoyable, with a great soundtrack of course.

    Avengers end game.... Infinity war was better imo.

    Endgame was an okay to good movie, I honestly have had more enjoyment from the guardians of galaxy films.

    The action scenes were average I felt, also could of cut quite abit from it I felt as seemed long for the sake of it.

    CHiPs. Only because I listen to Dax Shepard's podcast, so thought I should check out the movie that killed his writer-directing career. It was really, really bad. Some fairly decent car/bike chase scenes but little else positive. Deserved to flop.

    I remember watching this when it first came out, was hoping they would make a sequel.

    Lie Low (On amazon prime)

    A UK made micro budget thriller / drama with a good couple of twists about a lad and his mother in hiding after a stabbing takes place in London. Some of the best acting I've seen in a while the whole thing has a dreamlike intensity start to finish. The ending might be a little bit of a let down for some but got me thinking afterwards and I have a good idea what was meant by it.

    It has a sort of Kill List feel to it but minus the overt horror.

    8/10 just because it was refreshing watch, with great acting and some interesting ideas.

    John Wick 3 - An enjoyable, "turn your brain off" action movie. I actually liked it more than the 2nd. 7/10.

    Overlord - Found this last night after browsing the movies on Sky. Went in with no expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Not much to it, but still fun. 6/10.

    Great movie! The remake was OK, but this is till the best.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - 9/10. I'm a little late to the party and totally regret not seeing this on the big screen. It's easily up there with the very best Marvel movies.

    Apocalypto (2006) 8/10

    Been on my list for a few years now and noticed it was on Prime movies so decided to give it a watch.

    Excellent story which was directed really well.
