    That happens all the time at this joint because I don't really know a lot about films. Bruce on Broadway is a must watch if you have Netflix but an audio version is on Spotify and YouTube. Incredible and hilarious

    Legendary film !

    Kaufman always finds such inventive ways to translate his theme and motifs across. Always different but has the same great quality to them.

    Probably best film Ive seen Cameron Diaz in

    This has been added to Netflix UK today, if anybody is keen to watch it!

    I watched Get Out 3 months ago, it was a decent film, a bit telegraphed the script but a few twists, 7 or 7.5 is a fair rating riise

    Lego Movie 2 - 7/10

    Decent, not as good as the first one, but got a good amount of laughs out of me.

    Stan and Ollie - 9/10

    Brilliant film. You really would not be able to tell the difference between actor and comedian! The way they emulated the actual skits in this film is exceptional and its a must watch

    Hehe, that's why I like to call him Kodi. You've no idea what Kodi is though?

    Polishing off a few from my extensive DvD collection lately, loads left too but caught some classics.

    Reservoir Dogs - 9/10, class film and found it, personally, better than the other Tarantino film Ive seen so far. Can't miss that classic torture scene!

    Pulp Fiction -8/10, watched it before the other film and with much hype from people and though an awesome, especially the Gold Watch storyline, preferred Reservoir Dogs more. Not discrediting it ofc, master films in both regards!

    2001: A Space Odyssey - 10/10, a long ass film - even has a bit on dvd for intermission - it's suspense and eerie atmosphere intrigues you, and is my third Kubrick film that's made me speechless.

    Black Klansmen - 8/10, a more modern one but not one to disappoint. Mixes comedy/satire well with the subject matter to a level that doesn't push one way more than the other. Tremendous true story too! Though, ofc, some liberties taken for dramatic effect. Didn't know it was Denzel Washington's son till after In the main role!

    500 Days of Summer - 7/10, good anti-romantic comedy that is written nicely. Can see the hype and is a good film.

    Blade Runner - 8/10, class film though I had a version that cut certain aspects out which I think could push it more but still a legendary film for a reason.

    The Truman Show - 9/10, awesome film that I always go back too because of the intriguing concept. Jim Carrey on point, one of his best performances

    Adaptation - 9/10, another cracking out of the box film from my favourite screenwriter, Charlie Kaufman. Meta all the way and done awesomely!

    Keeping Mum - 7/10, fodder comedy I watched between films. Not bad and had a few laughs, run of the mill film that I kept remembering from my youth.

    Your Name - 9/10, awesome best selling anime film ever, and was amazed it was on Prime! Funny, dramatic and heart wrenching, perfectly paced and beautifully animated.

    The Number 23 - 6/10, alright thriller that tries but really doesn't pull you in. Great concept and a good performance - I thought - from Jim Carrey. Don't think it's as bad as reviews make it out as, but oh well!

    Think that's all... Might be a few I am forgetting....

    Loved Truman Show in particular. One from my own childhood that I'll always go back to. Missus loved it the first time I made her watch it too

    Watched Captain Marvel on Tuesday night for those who like the Marvel movies. It was one of the best of that lot that I've seen. Great story, excellent acting, lots of humour, great soundtrack, and some backstory to the Avengers (seeing as how it's set in the 90s)

    But it's also definitely a movie that'll piss off the stupid men's rights folks on the internet.... strong female leads that don't take shit..... nothing too over the top.... but definitely some things that will resonate with women and the shit they've had to put up with

    8/10

    How bad could Pocahontas 2 have been to warrant a 2?
    Think you can argue? Test your skills in Ban this Filth today! Respond to this thread and plead your case, and if you're a football fan, have a go at Best of the Best! Plus I have a new format, applications are still available for that here.

    I thought riise would be the first to say that

    I don't know, maybe I need to watch it again but I just didn't get into it as much as I thought I would.

    It's pocahontas, maybe a 4 year old would give it more than a 2 but it just wasn't worth watching. It's a shame the missus had collected all these disney movies over the years Nearly watched them all though so never have to watch them again!

    Were you expecting something similar to The Fast and the Furious? I've found a lot of people didn't like it because they were expecting F&F-lite.

    It's ok not to like it! Quite polarising, I've discovered.

    Want to watch it again now

    It's not that I didn't like it, I just thought it would be a bit more fast paced for sure.

    How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World - 4/10 - Haven't seen the first two, but this was advertised to me as a film that kids and not-kids can both enjoy. I beg to differ.

    Don't Think Twice - 6/10 - Gentle comedy about an improv group (decent cast), no lolling but some smirking. Not boring.

    Christine - 6/10 - based on the true story of a news reporter killing herself live on air in the '70s. Was aware of the story and the re-telling of it was alright.

    We Are Your Friends - 6/10 - Harmless, semi-fun. Sad to report I now love Emily Ratajkowski, like every other basic male in the world.

    The Bad Batch - 4/10 - Think I've proved with Drive that I love a film with no dialogue... but this is a shit, pointless film with no dialogue.

    Duck Butter - 7/10 - Some little-known indie that I like the look of the cast of. Pleasant surprise.

    Office Christmas Party - 5/10 - Tedious. Has Jason Bateman ever turned down a script?
