Logan - 8/10.

More superhero films like that please. better than the end-of-the-world, here comes every hero, cacophonous confusion that is the Avengers films. Logan is still an action film obviously but it was a compelling one with a much calmer and interesting plot. I prefer it when they focus on a few characters and use that time to tell a story rather than bombard you with characters, fight sequences and explosions etc.

Logan - 8/10.

I was a tad slow in parts, but overall I loved it.
A bit sad in places as well, it will be interesting to see if they continue the series with "Laura".

Also had the Deadpool preview at the start.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

I am absolutely gutted that this is the last time we are going to see Wolverine and Professor X. I can still remember going to see X-Men with my two best friends at the cinema 17 years ago

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

I have been a busy bee at the cinema recently:

John Wick 8/10: not the best film ever but a great action flick which built on the story of the first one and bucked the trend by being better imho.

Patriots Day 7/10: I love films based on true stories and action aside, this did a great job of showing you what went on behind the scenes when we were watching the news and press conferences

The Great Wall 6/10: I enjoyed it but couldn't help but feel the whole purpose of the feel was to glorify China and their culture and throw some monsters in the middle. I loved it though, I love seeing great empires in all their glory with the military precision of choreography and all the costumes.

Kong: Skull Island 5/10: Biggest disappointment of the year for me so far. I was happy to see Kong still turned out to be a good guy and was not captured but I felt like the film wasn't supposed to be about him and more of an "explore the Jurassic park" which happened to be part of. I still would have enjoyed it for the action and bad guys but there was something missing in it for me and it felt hollow.


Four good films coming up very soon which I am looking forward to:

Beauty and the Beast
Power Rangers
Fast 8 (midnight premiere)
Ghost in the Shell (midnight premiere)

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

Resident evil: The final chapter. 4/10

Mediocre ending to an average at best franchise. Loved the first, enjoyed the second but it started nose diving pretty quickly after that albeit with a semi decent film in between.

Hopefully it can now get the reboot it deserves and become more than just a 'loosely based on' adaptation.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

Power Rangers - 8/10

really fun and enjoyable with a few really well placed nods to the original MMPR series. Only a few small faults for me were the pacing and a couple of editing issues.

Great update to a classic series and just on the right side of being darker and more grown up.

Life - 4/10
I honestly wouldn't bother going to see it at the cinema. It is a space sci-fi horror (and the trailer makes it look better than it actually is) and if you turn your brain off you would think it is good. Unfortunately if you leave it on you will realise the whole thing would never happen because the characters do things that they wouldn't do in real life and they have omitted technology that is present on the ISS and exists in real life in order to fit the story line.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

It really isn't. Without going into too much detail and I am not spoiling anything (and this is just one example), each of the charcters takes it in turn of being in mortal danger and instead of putting the safety of the space station or Earth first, which is what they would be trained to do and would do instinctively because of their background (CDC, Air Force etc), they instead opt for self preservation knowing that they are facilitating further contamination and risk.

I enjoy films like Aliens where they accidentally put themselves in a perilous situation and despite their best efforts they can't get out of it, but this is just stupid because they are so many times when things happen which you know just wouldn't and is completely unrealistic.

Ghost in the Shell. Pretty good, certainly very well shot and scored. The kind of film you should see in the cinema.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

Its been seriously panned by the critics/box office revenue, bet it'll be a cult film in a few years though.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

If you take a classic animé and make a live version there are many who consider that as sacrelage. I'll reserve judgement until I've seen it and can compair it to the original.
