2018 Films , and we're off…
Looking forward to this one, but will wait until I’m actually in a quiet place (my front room) to watch it. The sound of people munching/texting/chatting is bad enough during a regular noisy film.
There was an article on the BBC the other day about noisy eaters being shamed into shutting up by this film. This can only be a good thing.
I saw it in a full screen in the Leicester Square Cineworld and, fortunately, the munching was mercifully quiet. There were people walking out with virtually full bags of popcorn 😀Posted 4 months agormacattackMember
They could have built a shelter beside the waterfall and lived not as stealth and instead of trekking for fish. 3 creatures in a few hundred square km’s of area, yet appear in seconds, arms sharp enough to cut almost everything , but a car roof is impossible. I could go on.Posted 4 months ago

– Perhaps the ground around the waterfall wasn’t suitable for building a home?
– Given their hearing is so sensitive, they could be quite a long way away and still hear. Having said that, if their aim is to stamp out all noise-making creatures, they would most likely stay in an area where they have heard sounds until it has been cleared of said noise-making people.
– Sharp doesn’t always equate to hard.
I agree, it’s not a perfect film (I thought they played a little loose with the noise thing), but none of it really detracted from the film, IMO.Posted 4 months ago
Saw ‘You Were Never Really Here’ – amazing film. The way close-ups, background noise, flashbacks and music were used was so… maybe not unique, but really clever and striking. Not like anything I’ve seen anyway. Very dark film, but excellent. Joaquin is superb as always.
Film called ‘Thoroughbreds’ was advertised before it. Also looks great.Posted 4 months ago
Thoroughly enjoyed Avengers: Infinity War. An impressive baddie – well realised, and a big chunk of the MCU go hell for leather in this fairly bold Marvel film.
It was maybe just one notch too much in terms of characters and action but it was so well put together that it just draws you in. Some really great quieter moments too.
Loved the ending – though I fear it will be reversed in the next film quite quickly as it’s a Kill Bill scenario.
They did a good job with making the characters feel<span style=”font-size: 0.8rem;”> less invincible than normal.</span>

Well late to the party but an Odeon pass and some Rental DL’s I’m back in the game!
Avengers – awesome bang crash laugh
Black Panther – good, nice role swaps and balance, plus Bilbo
Deadpool 2 – laughs all the way
Mollys Game – slick, fast, slow, Sorkin all the way – the opening monologue was perfect 🙂
I Tonya – Well Margot is great!!
3 Billboards – Wow!! want to love and hate them all at the same time – just before I watched it I heard Mayo’s interview with Gandalf – how do you play the con man, you just play the man. Perfect direction for anyone is this film, play a human being and let the story do it’s work.
Justice League – well no.Posted 3 months ago
Solo – very enjoyable overall. Felt it was slightly top heavy with the best stuff in the first half.
It doesn’t hit the highest Star Wars highs but is at least consistent and no real evidence of the Director fall-out on screen.
Characters are fairly well done, though I feel Han Solo himself didn’t quite have enough screen presence for me.
Cinematography is excellent and the universe is suitably gritty and convincing with a really down-beat colour palette that is far removed from the others films. I really liked the tone of the film – a great balance of stuff for the kids and the older kids.
CGI is top drawer in that it blends perfectly into the practical environment. Music is Scrappy though, can’t work out what it wants to be.Posted 2 months ago
[Kermode] Well they looked like they had fun making it [/Kermode]
It’s probably a testament to the fact Brad & George are good friends that they work so well and so fast together, this doesn’t quite hit that, was a freebie preview screening so nothing lost but certainly more a catch it on Netflix kind of a film sadlyPosted 2 months ago
