Staring Mahershala Ali and fat Aragorn, this was an entertaining, but fairly lightweight look at prejudice suffered by black Americans in the early 1960's Deep South.

A blatant piece of Oscar bait where the admittedly strong performances transcended a fairly weak plot.

A fair few laughs though

3.5/5

Despite reading 'awesome' reviews of the film I thought it was dull, boring, cliched, and poorly acted dross.
 
The Mule, with Clint Eastwood.

Bit puzzled as to the reason for making it apart from the original true story premise of the oldest Cartel courier ever busted, but I am going with old white guy gains redemption after failing his family from meeting various people along the way (metaphorically the road he drives). Nice film, bit lightweight in parts, and oddly some of the quality of makeup struck me, could have done more with the scenery, but a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

Some fantastic visuals, loads of violence and a really scary Lena Headley.
That's Headey!!

Delicious - an inverted Blazing Saddles reference at last!

He does have a habit of dropping in a bit of frippery here and there. Consider the gym scene in Space Cowboys.
 
To be fair they deserve credit for trying to make a Bolandesque MC1 and having a go at the Cursed Earth but Stallone fucked it up. It's not like "Keep the Helmet on" and "He doesn't do romance" are difficult to comprehend.
In my opinion Stallone was miscast.Dredd does not remove his helmet.Ever.Young Sly is just too well known to hide his face for any role.

How To Train Your Dragon: Hidden Kingdom

The best film of the series yet.
I thought no.2 was the best personally. Not that it's a bad film, far from it! I'd say it's the second best film I've seen in the last twelve months, ahead of Bohemian Rhapsody (slightly) and behind The Incredibles 2. Also a couple of moments where there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
 
I finally watched Kingsman Golden Circle last night. Not a patch on the first. A third might be heading towards shark jumping.

Any reason why hand holders @HappyNomad or @Oddbod downrated this post?

Accumulating hours of your time downrating a stranger's posts is rather weird
 
I watched Lone Survivor again recently. I’ve seen the film plenty of times and rate it as a decent war film. The latest viewing inspired me to read the Wikipedia entry about it. The part about the historical accuracy is quite interesting.

Golden Circle was a huge disappointment. I'm pretty sure that it was a film that was developed during a brain storming meeting, and they put every 'cool' idea in. Instead of sticking to a reasonable central theme and mixing in some neat ideas and smart dialogue as per the first film, they just lurched from one massive set piece to the next. It was fvcking bollox. Too much effort was made to shock and wow the audience.
