  • Who Dares Wins

    Who Dares Wins

    ★½

    Thought it be a laugh to watch. Hardly.. Hideous film concept via a tabloid headline. Your Terrorists are essentially hard left party union politics, with shooters. It’s a Thatcher wet dream. Roy Budd soundtrack is tight and gets a Star.

  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★½

    How to ruin a weekend. This was the extended cut. This is even more preposterous in 2021. Me checking the running time of film after they kill the daddy. How can there be 20mins left???


    First time this Zack guy had his running time. I don’t think I’ll make it to the 4 hour follow up to this..

  • Star Raiders: The Adventures of Saber Raine
  • Mortal Engines

    Mortal Engines

    ★½

    Big lumbering city roll around and crash into each other. Somebody made steam punk in 2018. Guess if you live in Peter Jackson’s bubble, than nobody is gonna stop and check you on the way to the kitchen. He’s turned into George Lucas circa 1996 didn’t he? You have a dream factory. You can make anything you want. What strange full circle.
    It doesn’t matter that there wasn’t a pair of welding goggle and a topper high hat seemed to be banned from the set...

    ...and they merc’d off Shrike the only character development with motivation the film ever had.

  • Kick-Ass 2

    Kick-Ass 2

    ★½

    Nothing like ruining yer buzz for the first one in under 24hrs. Tonally from the start this was wrong. Then they killed a character in the final act and wanted to turn it off. Because you can’t be funny and cute after that.

  • Fantastic Four

    Fantastic Four

    ★½

    Fantastic Flatbread. How is this so dull when it looks quite astonishing in places. Try to imagine what the Cronenberg / body horror elements would of looked like.

  • The Midnight Sky

    The Midnight Sky

    ★½

    I watch films to the end. The very end Netflix was too busy trying to load up something else during the credits. Cheap motherfuckers. It lost a star for that stunt.

    Also the low light is still terrible on this service. I’ve seen DVDs with better picture quality in darkness. The sinking Norwegian outpost was lost to me.
