    Same, I even gave it two attempts. Just not funny at all, just your typical 10yr old jokes with swearing thrown in.

    Le Mans '66

    Really enjoyed it, very good performances from Matt Damon and Christian Bale. I definitely recommend catching it on a big screen with good sound, it brings the racing to life but film is so much more than that.

    It didn't feel like it was almost two and half hours, which is a always a good indication of how well a film has drawn me in. My daughter loved it too. A great balance of character, history and fantastic cars.

    Duck Duck Goose

    Threw this on for an easy watch. Very generic plot and characters. An unexpected amount of guff gags and sexual jokes? Visually it looks like a tech demo - OK but a bit boring.

    Really quite bad, would avoid!

    The Good Liar (2019) - 6/10

    Slow paced in delivery, but very well put together and keeps your interest to the end thanks to the great acting from the cast.

    The plot is predictable, but does take a few unexpected turns and a very unexpected dark turn towards the end, although the ending is pretty much as you would expect.

    You were never really here. 2/10

    Let's make child abuse and the mental health issues that follow into an artsy fartsy film.

    90 mins ill never get back, complete waste of time.

    The description :
    When a teenage girl goes missing, a jaded, brutal enforcer attempts a rescue mission. He uncovers corruption and abuse of power along his way

    Sounds like your normal action film, equaliser style maybe but noooooo. Yawn fest from start to finish. If you do watch it is recommend getting stoned out of your skull, might make more sense.

    Bumblebee - 7.5/10

    Really enjoyed this, i've always loved the 80's Transformers and the first Bay movie; the rest of the Bay movies were style over substance and even then i had no clue what was going on on screen. Whereas with Bumblebee you saw the robots transforming and you could make out what was happening, much like the toys - few movements between transformations whereas Bay's movies were layers upon layers of folding metal.

    Didn't enjoy Cena's role, didn't really add much except cheese, but the story, the CGI and seeing Optimus Prime, Shockwave, Soundwave/Ravage was awesome! (i use to have the original Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, Jazz, Ratchet + a few others i think!)

    Hopefully this is the reboot and start of Transformer movies more close the original material.

    Dr Sleep. 8.5/10

    By far one of the better films ive seen recently.
    Works surprisingly well as a follow up story, not just a cash in.

    Isn't this movie called Ford Vs Ferrari ?

    Tonight I watched The Invitation on Netflix. Was ok but nothing special. Atmospheric and kind of chilling but if you're looking for decent tension ratcheter it's hard to top Vacancy. 5/10 for The Invitation.

    In the UK, for some reason, it’s Le Mans ‘66. Not sure why. Some marketing firm making themselves seem useful no doubt.

    Yesterday - 7/10 - considering it is written by Richard Curtis and directed by Danny Boyle and features the songs of the Beatles it was not greater than the sum of its parts. Mildly enjoyable.

    Jaws - 9/10 - as part of my ongoing series of watching Classic films on a Saturday night (as the female half of our family is watching Strictly) rewatched this. Young Royal Fleet enjoyed this immensely. Has aged pretty well tbh.

    Is it not more about Le Mans doesn't mean much to the Americans?

    Happy Gilmour - early Adam Sandler so you know exactly what you're going to get. 3/5

    Does appear to be a US/UK naming thing but oddly the poster stated 'based on Ford Vs Ferrari' :p.

    The King (Netflix)

    A lumbering historical drama, set around the life of Henry V and his victory at Agincourt. Horribly historically inaccurate in rather irritating ways, it borrows from Shakespeare but ends up lacking both the art of William and the weight of history. If you like an inexplicably faded 15th century with Knights, hateable Frenchies, and a famous battle missing its most famous aspect you'll love it. Me, I'm a sucker for anything medieval so it was okay otherwise I think I'd give it much less than...

    You're very wrong here in my opinion.

    This was a great film.

    I think it just wasn't what you were expecting / wanting it to be.

    One of my favourite films of recent years.

    That's the beauty of opinions, we all have different ones.

    It's not that I don't like deep films, I just found this completely boring. I've even seen it said that you need to have had mental health issues to really understand this film, well, been there, got the t-shirt and nearly took my own life, but this just did not click with me at all. I've had this with other films, Lost in Translation for instance, just boring to watch.
