    Life is derivative tosh, so Cloverfield is likely awful, which may mean it is 'better'.

    Life is a lot better than the "Cloverfield" disaster, even if you like Cloverfield and 10CL just don't bother with it. Utter drivel....which Netflix apparently wasted $50m on to screen. The suckers.

    Life seems to get a lot of stick (and to be fair it doesn't do anything new for the genre) but it's good watch I found. Probably a better Alien movie than Covenant :)

    To be fair, if Netflix only cares about viewing figures, and people will watch any old crap if they don't have to go out and pay to see it, I think it might even be seen as a success for them. Bright was shit too and it got a sequel.

    The Cloverfield Paradox is a 3/10
    Life is a 4/10
    Best off avoiding both.

    I got some entertainment from Life, in a Gravity meets Alien kinda way. Also the fact my viewing partner was screaming like a little girl had me pissing myself.

    ymmv

    The only good thing about it is that the creature has the same name as a good mate of mine, which makes most of the dialogue pretty funny.

    Lego Batman.

    I’d been starting to feel batman was becoming a bit of a person flogging a dead horse, comics and films, whilst technically great and trying to push boundaries were and have been running out space to move in( and whilst the film uses similar themes used in, particularly recent batman comics it delivers them in a way that is vibrant fun and more importantly fresh. Very much gives batman a new leash of life. Can get a bit hyper active at times - it is a kids film after all, but it’s often witty smart and fun.

    4/5

    Going against the grain obviously, but I loved Life (my misses included). Going in with low expectations probably helped.

    It's biggest problem is that it's completely derivative and you would be better off watching literally any of the films it rips off.

    That's all true. It was OK, definitely watchable but as safe as houses, which meant it was a bit dull.

    I thought Life was great, personally. Totally derivative, but really quite threatening. One of the best schlocky scifi horrors in ages. Way better than either of the recent Alien movies.

    Captain Fantastic - 7/10

    Viggo Mortenson and his wife raise their kids in the woods to be a mixture of Bear Grylls and Rainman, mostly through various styles of child abuse. When the mother dies the wider family quite understandably thinks this crazy guy shouldn't look after kids.

    I did get relatively on board by the end as you see that it is a family with a lot of love in it, and they play up the ways in which these kids are much smarter than 'normal' ones etc. But it really seemed like the film thinks the father character is far more sympathetic than I found him. I got on board with the kids and what they needed, but I never stopped thinking he probably just had serious mental health issues and shouldn't have been in charge of children at all.

    I'm glad it's not just me that thought Viggo was being really irresponsible in Captain Fantastic. I put that viewpoint to my housemates who watched it with me, and it did not go down well at all. :(

    It eases off a little as you go through, but the first twenty minutes makes him look like a complete nutso cult leader, it was difficult to recover me after that point. And his kids literally cannot function in society, as they repeatedly demonstrate. My wife has no great love for society-at-large though, so she didn't fully agree with me. Reckoned I was too harsh.

    I dunno, I think the movie was firmly stacking the deck in his favour, up until the final third or so.

    Sure, live how you like. Society sucks, I get it! I probably wouldn't mind being a hermit! But by spreading it to your kids and cutting them off from society, you are hugely limiting their choices later in life.

    The Big Sick - 73/100

    On Prime right now. I quite enjoyed it actually. Not a typical comedy but definitely has some laugh out loud moments. Being of Asian descent I was able to identify closely with the wider themes of the movie but they are broad enough to apply to everyone I'd say. And having watched the movie, I'd say Ray Romano isn't all that bad of an actor actually. Not seen him in anything else other than Everybody Loves Raymond but he had a decent enough turn in this. Worth a watch in any case for me.

    Yeah, I think the movie is almost entirely on his side, but as a viewer I was definitely not in sync with it!

    On another note - Frank Langella with a crossbow is extremely intimidating :D

    300: Rise of an Empire 3/10

    CGI overloaded fantasy with Greek warriors. I guess the actors spent most of their time performing in front of a green screen. The sword action, blood let reminded me of The Walking Dead. I’m assuming Artemisia’s tits were real. Most of the time it felt like watching a video game, death meaning little.

    I've not seen the other film 300, directed by Zack Snyder, although 300: Rise of an Empire does have that high contrast look that Sucker Punch had. Sucker Punch is the better film.

    I'm actually curious to see it now off the back of this bold statement.

    Victor Crowley (Hatchet 4)
    Another surprise entry to the slasher series. This is actually the best one after the original. Bad acting and OTT deaths. It's just a switch off and have fun kind of deal.

    8/10

    I don't think the film took sides at all. Well, it starts off by showing how wonderfully brilliant his children are but it quickly changes tack and show how fucked up they are as well. It was rather good at not writing anything on my nose but rather presenting a smörgĺsbord of pros and cons.

    Only bit I think was a bit much was the declaration of independence battle. Felt silly. Also the eldest going off to Africa all of a sudden at the end. It felt rushed.

    Yeah that bit with the bill of rights was annoying, he was so bloody smug.

    I'd second The Big Sick, really good film.

    Fucking bastards. All of you, that is, who have mentioned A Monster Calls.

    'How bad can it be?', I thought...

    My wife was bubbling from about half way through. I held it together till the last 15 minutes or so.

    It's excellent, and the kid's performance was superb, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it as such.

    @evild_edd I'm never going to watch that. My brother told me never to watch it and the comments on this thread have only confirmed it

    @retro74

    I don't think I'd have found it as hard before I had kids (mine are 4 & 2), but it's a particularly brutal watch if If you've little ones.

    He's not wrong. 300 2 is absolute bullshit

    "But what about Eva Greens tits?"

    Even they can't save it
