Saturday Night At The Movies

Saw 1917 last night. Not quite what I expected.
Did you find it disappointing? I went to see it before it had had all the hype (or at least I hadn't noticed the hype) and was quite surprised when people loved it as much as they did. Like, it's pretty good but not amazing IMO.

Also some things annoyed me a bit, like when the main guy would turn around or walk thirty yards and be in a whole new situation that he must have been able to see or hear just before. And if the mission was so important why not send a dozen guys? Or just go around the back instead of through no-mans land?

I was a bit disappointed. Quite a few situations (other than the ones you've mentioned) were a touch iffy.
Maybe we should have taken it for what it is. Entertainment.

Just back from seeing "Us".

Superb! I was looking forward to this after really enjoying Jordan Peele's first film Get Out and it did not disappointed at all.

Far more visceral and scary than Get Out but more subtle with its core message.

Great performances, some big laughs and it rarely goes for the easy jump scare.

If you're a horror fan its a must, but I'd recommend it to anyone who can handle their nerves being jangled.
Have you been watching The Outsider? As a fellow horror fan reckon you'd enjoy it.

Where's this on, Kev?
Sky Atlantic but it’s an HBO production. It’s got a couple of episodes left to run. It’s been fantastic but now has a slight feel of being strung out to get their full 10 episodes worth. But still definitely one of the best Stephen King adaptations I’ve seen.

Nice one, will check it out!

I'm up to episode 4 on catch-up. Really enjoying it so far.

Saw a trailer for Parasite before 1917 came on and then noticed it won a load of Oscars.

Went to see it last week. Decent enough with some good dark comedy. More one for the proper film buffs to cream over. Korean film with subtitles.
Went last night to see Parasite, and yeah thought it was good, especially for the limited number of characters involved.

Father's Day gift from Danny. We saw the Diego Maradona film at the Cameo cinema on Monday night. Absolutely splendid. Recommended.

Been watching lots of sports films.

Field of Dreams - really a lot weirder than I remember. Quite enjoyed it though. A League of Their Own, loved it, Tom Hanks playing a boozed up manager of a women's baseball team in WW2. Wildcats - very 80s Goldie Hawn film where she coaches an inner-city american football team.

Think I feel like watching them because they're often such shameless emotional manipulators and somehow comforting.

I watched 21 Bridges last night, worth a watch, action packed and a decent story.

Thinking of doing the Godfather Trilogy again over the Easter weekend?

I have to say, as much as I thought I would love The Irishman, I just didn’t. I enjoyed it, but something about it just didn’t grip me the way other Scorsese films have.
I don’t think it had anything like the same number of instantly iconic scenes, lines or even characters that his other work has.

Goodfellas and The Departed are my all time favourite films, so maybe I need to watch The Irishman again.
Watched The Irishman last night.
Another film that was O.K.
Maybe I'm getting too cynical in my dotage.

Substitute 'discerning' and I'm good with that?

For all the computer enhancements, it was a bit strange to see a 76 year old De Niro shoot someone in the head, then try and run like the thirtysomething he was portraying.
Discerning r us.
