Green Book: Great. The more I see Mahershala Ali in stuff the more excited I am for the Blade reboot.

Birds of Prey looks like it will be Suicide Squad levels of terrible. Shame really. DC have been making a bit of a comeback with their last couple of outings. Maybe its just a bad trailer but it looks like they are climbing back on the turd wagon.

This weekend: X-Men Dark Phoenix vs Stan & Ollie

Hands down Stan & Ollie in every way.

Dark Phoenix is better than I expected but its still a mess, it just happens to be quite fun in places. Still, its a howlingly bad end to the X-Men before they join the MCU. After a second attempt, it somewhat proves the owners can’t do Jean Grey’s story in movie format. Maybe less giving everyone their space and just do Jean Grey.

Stan & Ollie is a gentle joy. Its not pushing cinema, its just a nice homage to a couple of guys whose humour doesn’t even register these days. It follows their final tour together. I found it strange it was in the UK but what do I know. Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly nailed it but also the wives are great - Moaning Myrtle is always good and her bickering with Nina Arianda is a hoot. Got to admit although I really don’t like it generally, some of the carefully timed slapstick is impressive.

From the director of Venom and the writers of Deadpool…

rofl… so the same guys that wrote and directed the first Zombieland then :smiley:

Looks good. And for once a trailer that doesn’t give away the entire plot. Oh wait, plot… :smiley:

Oh yeh and PLEASE still do Zombie Kill Of The Week!

Forgettable, unnecessarily long


#352

I agree.

However the kill scenes were brutal as fuck, so, at least +2 points in my book

Finally saw the remake of “Child’s Play” last night.

I honestly didn’t think it was that bad. Actually, there was some pretty creepy shit in there. It wasn’t OG Child’s Play, certainly, it was entirely different. But it was a great homage and didn’t tread on old ground imo.

spoiler - that scene after Chucky kills the family cat, and then is standing in the dark while andy is terrorized in bed and the doll just starts playing the recorded cat-killing squeel sounds back to him…

that was genius creepy. Not sure why it got so much hate. 7.5/10
