    The prequels started with tedious exposition about intergalactic tax disputes. And that was a high point.

    TFA shits all over those films.

    I can see why some don't like it but like I said I quite like the realistic look it gives. It certainly is excellent for cgi heavy films. Not experienced any artifacts on my sony TV but as I said I don't like it on everything. Watching The Godfather in UHD like I was actually tthere was quite distracting.

    I honestly don't think I've ever seen anyone say they like the soap opera effect before, and it being 'excellent' for CGI is something I've never seen mentioned by AV heads. But again, to each their own.

    You are all wrong about TFA / Star Wars. I am right, as well as those people that have the same opinion.

    It's known fact, that without a doubt that the prequels, especially episode 2,contained some of the best filmed dialogue. Ever.

    There those of us that like it and anyone at home i showed it to were quite amazed. It really is good for CGI heavy, watched 2012 using it the other weekend and Christ it was exhilarating to watch the destruction and the star wars films looked incredible as I mentioned.

    There are different settings on mine and i just use standard rather than at full whack (called smooth on my telly). I have read on forum where people were debating motionflow that the tech used to be really rubbish but it apparently has improved in recent years.

    It hasn't improved at all beyond introducing a little less latency. It's the equivalent of watching at the wrong aspect ratio and then saying "well I prefer it because it fits all the screen". Even the two films that were shot with it in mind look like garbage.

    Don't forget the tedious and cringey romance.

    Phantom Menance was basil exposition the movie. The premise has potential but they were pretty turgid films.

    Which reminds me I need to rewatch the Austin powers movies sometime.

    I can't be the only person who thought one of the aspects about TFA that made it seem slightly un-Star Wars was how good the acting in it was!

    Good acting? Ford phoned it in almost bored at times, Daisy Ridley was terrible...just...just....terrible. Fisher had had way too much coke to act again, Kylo Ren dude was a miscasting error of epic proportions. Even that silver stormtrooper that was a supposedly big deal in the hype sounded more wooden than a tree.

    Boyega and Isaac were the only two that made it bearable.

    Also they moved around like they were on a soap opera set or something, very off putting.

    @bad09 Jeez, have you seen Mark Hamill in the OT? TFA had at worst the same level of acting as the OT. I personally thought they all did very well. Han Solo is an old man now, his performance fit. I liked Kylo Ren. Daisy was great.

    Maybe the motion flow was putting you off?

    Yeah this is pretty much how I feel trying to watch it again. Daisy Ridley in particular is just *awful*. How do people like that land major hollywood movie roles?!

    It's like when Sam Worthington was suddenly an action hero or the aliens that made Melissa McCarthy funny. How the the fuck does this happen?

    In all seriousness I cannot fathom how she got the part. Utterly awful and really distracting. I believe even JJ said she was wooden in filming if teh internet is to be believed.

    Kingsman: The Golden Circle. 3/10.

    The rare sequel that actually diminishes the original. A very strange mess where little of the humour lands and most characters are too cartoonish to bear through an entire film. Mark Strong did a great job with what he was given, and had one of the rare moments in the film that worked.

    @bad09 i actually enjoyed her in Spy with Jason Statham. In fact I may as well give it a score 75/100

    Funny most of the way through, Jason surprisingly so. Loved his oneupmanship.

    I don't really care about all of the inconsistencies in TFA because I've not got a terminal case of nerd. I did think the story re-hashing ANH was lazy and cowardly, although I understand why they did it.

    I thought we were going to see the post-Empire Star Wars, but nothing has actually changed. You have what is basically the Empire with a deathstar versus the Rebels who have about twenty ships, and a newbie Jedi fighting against an indecisive man in a plastic mask.

    Hmm...don't even know if I'll bother. Not bothered with the latest Transformers or Pirates film as of yet either. They probably are all over two and a half hours in length each as well. Don't mind long films, just mods which are shit.

    Correct. Exactly what everyone wanted basically.

    @Youthist not i. I was honestly expecting a sequel not a reboot but that's my problem. As a reboot it was ok, I just wish they sold it that way and didn't pretend it was something else.

    Just heading home from my first film of the London Film Festival. Went to see Summit. A rather odd film about a trans national oil deal across the whole of South America. Quite a slow burner but I really enjoyed it. Hopefully it will get some kind of distribution.

    Best film I saw last year didn't make it to much if any of a release over here. If Nocturama turns up on any services then watch it.

    I thought ford was fantastic in it, best he's been in decades. Finally looked like he was having some fun with it.

    Logan

    X-Men universe gets edgy with blood and swearing. It's fine, probably the fourth best X-Men film, but it didn't really live up to what I had been led to expect.

    I think the lack of a great villain is what hurts it most. Not every superhero film needs the entire city being destroyed but after how effective Stryker was in X2 and Magneto has been in his different incarnations or the Hellfire Club in First Class there just wasn't any spark in this one.

    A nice change of pace but the X-films are absolutely all over the place at the moment with no real tonal or narrative consistency it's hard to feel like this is part of the same universe. Aside from it telling the same basic weapon x tale we've heard before.

    7/10

    Oh I really enjoyed Logan. It worked as a Marvel film and was easily the best stand alone film in that universe. It had real pathos and I found it moving to say goodbye to two of the best portrayed characters in Logan and Xavior. Old Picard played Xavior's decline beautifully, with such vulnerability. His death had more meaning than any other in all the Marvel films made except one. Logan's. I could feel how tired he was living, it was a death that I could empathise with, and that moment he shared with the girl before he died was so poignant. After the life he'd led it was probably the best death he cpuld be wished for and I was glad in a way for him.

    It was exactly the kind of film the Marvel universe needed to add weight to its catalogue, show a different, more human side to its superhuman extravaganzas and prove they understand their material from all angles.

    I didn't feel Xavier's story and personal journey the way I did Wolverine's. Jackman was terrific portraying his weariness with life. Is it weird that it reminded me more of Walter White's downward spiral in final seasons of Breaking Bad than anything else in the superhero genre? Maybe its the desert setting but it was there.

    Agree that the X-Men universe needed some emotional grounding after the paper thin cgi mess of Apocalypse (and to a less extent the finale of Days of Future Past.

    I just wish that there was something else in the narrative for them to struggle against beside their own decline and the watered down version of the same villain we've had before. Unless that was part of the meta-narrative, that Logan will never escape men like Stryker or projects like Weapon-X and this cycle is what drives his physical and mental exhaustion.
