    @kingnothing12 the bbfc recommends minimum age of 8 for a 12a. Anyone taking a baby in is just being selfish.

    Maybe it was just showcase's silly rule about 18months being allowed in. They had 3 other kids with them. Surely the smart thing to do is leave one parent at home and take the other kids whilst mum or dad is on baby duty, Then swap for next time.

    Assassin's creed - I genuinely can't remember the last movie I watched with so little dialogue. Its got less than an actual videogame, which is some achievement. Fassbenders script must have been written on a post it note.

    But, yes, it's wank. It's basically the cut scenes from a mediocre installment without all the fucking around picking pockets and buying furniture.

    4/10

    Atomic Blonde

    Much better than I thought it was going to be. Some great actions scenes and it's pretty stylish throughout. The story is wank but it's an enjoyable, easy watch.

    I saw some deadbeat take his 7-year old-ish son into Blade Runner 2048. I don't know how anyone can afford to take whole families. The tickets plus popcorn/snacks are exorbitant.

    The worst people are those idiots with supremely noisy food. Like a big bag of foil covered sweets that they spend fucking ages rummaging around with. I tend to go to the early showing on Sunday mornings and afternoons. You can't really complain about them either.

    Couldn't agree more after watching this on Friday night.
    I wasn't expecting it to be great but wanted to at least give it chance.

    Wasn't this basically all the same people who absolutely killed it with Fassbender's bleak psychedelic warrior Macbeth?

    Reckon they just did Ass Creed to get the studio to let them do their Medieval Northumberland Nam movie?

    Suicide Squad 5/10

    Watched it again for the first time after a year (gearing up for Justice League).

    Still definitely the weakest film in the DCEU to date, although that's largely due to the fact that the storyline consists of flashbacks & a prologue set in the prison, which works OK, and then spends the entire last hour of a two-hour film in a soulless, pointless mess of CGI combat.

    I'm aware of WB's meddling, pushing and prodding in the production, and it's a shame because Ayer is an incredibly talented director - especially his three cop thrillers (End of Watch being one of my favourite films).

    The saddest thing about SS is that it wastes a heck of a lot of good potential. It's largely very-well casted - even Will Smith is good as Deadshot. The only exceptions I can think of are Cara Delevingne and Joel Kinnaman who were ridiculous and bland respectively.

    I thought Leto was "fine" as Joker - the flashback scene with him & Harley in the nightclub was probably the best in the entire film, but there wasn't really enough of him to make any kind of real judgement.

    The Villainess 8/10

    Enjoyably offbeat Korean action film. Cracking action sequences especially the first one. Does get slightly bogged down in the middle but highly recommended.

    Saw the same film this weekend. Would give it a 6 myself. Hugely disappointed given some of the hype. The story is MIA and so bad and labyrinthine it would drag the whole film down to a 3 if it didn't have a few excellent action scenes to prop it up.

    Incidentally I watched Predator on the big screen the same day and it is basically flawless.

    "Labyrinthine" ? Thought it was fairly standard stuff tbh, and as somebody said earlier in the thread, a riff off Nikita. Those opening 7mins though spoil the entire film, as it never quite hits the same high.

    Valerian City of a Thousand blah blah - 6/10

    Like a live-action version of Space Dandy, visually imaginative and interesting, with a ho-hum plot and terrible casting. Who thought Ethan Hawke would be that poor ? ;)

    Would possibly have preferred Cara to be the lead, and the charisma void her lil' sidekick. Could've been far more involving.....

    Warriors of the Dawn - 5/10

    I like a good medieval war film, and this sadly didn't really work. While the King of Korea decides to hide from the Japanese invasion in China, he appoints his wimpy son King in his stead, and hires a group of mercenary militia to escort him to the capital (expecting him to be killed).

    Cue almost an hour of people walking, occasionaly being attacked, theatrically evil Japanese villians, and barely saved by a nice wee siege at the end, including some swastika wearing monks. Eh.

    In This Corner Of The World - 9/10

    If Grave Of The Fireflies is too bleak for a repeat watch, try this. Beautiful looking tale of a young girl growing up through pre-war Japan, married off at the outbreak, and her resulting life thereafter in a small suburb overlooking Kure, an important naval port.

    Oh, and she's originally from Hiroshima..... Yeah, there's going to be sadness, but overall it's a positively upbeat "life goes on" kinda film, and made for a very cosy afternoon.

    @oldschoolsoviet Labyrinthine in terms of the way the story was told, rather than its content. There's about 5 mins of plot total, certainly not enough to warrant all the flashbacks and plot twists. It's not dissimilar to the Doom movie, 100 mins of fluff to film the one 5 min sequence they cared about. It is a very good scene though, if only I'd known it was the only bit worth watching.

    I still think the joker is by far the worst thing in this movie. Nicholson's and Ledger's were brilliant interpretations of the character whilst managing to be different from each other too, Leto's version just screams look at me, I'm the joker.

    I fucking hate this film

    Fantastic Four (2015)

    Far better than it's reputation led me to believe it would be.

    It feels quite dated in the wake of the MCU movies, almost like something that belongs in the gap between Raimi's Spidermans and the early Iron Man films. It's not unlike Ed Norton's Hulk in a lot of ways. The lack of huge superhero set pieces make it feel like a big budget tv pilot for at least two thirds of the film too.

    That said it's still a pretty formulaic origin story movie despite being leagues beyond the first attempt at a Fantastic Four franchise.

    Worst bits: When it comes the big battle is rubbish. Reed is kind of crap, Doom too. Kate Mara deserves better than what she's given to work with, and definitely deserves better than her post-transformation hair/wig.

    Best bits: Kate Mara, Billy Elliot as Thing works surprisingly well. The middle third of the movie.

    The inspiration was probably X-Men and the whole thing looks like it was built to be a first instalment but they're just not that exciting as a team.

    6.5/10

    Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    Wow. I am sure I am really late to the party with this, and everyone already knows how great it is. But it really is great. New Zealand odd-couple comedy with an orphan from the city on the run with a gizzled bush-man.

    Must have gone past it 1000 times on Netflix and ignored it - really glad I finally watched it. 10 year old son loved it too, kept saying "I don't want this to end". That rare kind of film that gives you both a grin on your face and a warm glow in your tummy.

    Nope. None of the films have been great but at least the non-grimdark ones had a sense of comicbook origins and fun about them.
    Doom was well done, as was Silver Surfer (in terms of representation and make-up/effects).

    The Trank film is garbage.

    So does the movie version of Murder on the Orient Express have any variation on who done it? I've always been under the impression that the solution was already pretty well-known. I guess Kids These Days might not, but eh.

    So, given that finding out who done it is a pretty large part of the appeal for mysteries, what's the point of adapting a mystery that most people already know the solution to?

    @Mola_Ram

    I can't really remember the plot so it was a surprise to me. It's an ok 5/10 film, watchable in a lazily entertaining way. Most of the cast have very little to do and are phoning it in. Judy Dench is particularly poor. I guess the main attraction is seeing Branagh's characterisation of Poirot and an increasingly bloated Johnny Depp.
