It's about a bloke who goes on a diet.

The previous film 'Fatman' was rather dull tbh.

After 40 years, the original Star Wars (episode IV) is still a great film and stands the test of time.

Also watched 10 Cloverfield Lane today, it was better than I thought it would be. 6/10

Idris Elba has made a film about Yardies, he's not Jamaican but this is not "cultural appropriation", why is that?

Peter Jackson has made a film about Middle earth, he’s not a Hobbit but this is not “cultural appropriation”, why is that?

I really liked Ghost Stories though and thought Martin Freeman was excellent in it. 8.5/10


Ghost Stories is brilliant, I loved it. Proper old school scary but funny too.

I watched Moonlight last night. Good film but it ended too abruptly. I wanted to see him at a Pride festival or something. :twirl:

Because middle earth and hobbits are fictional maybe?

Great comparison.

A Cure For Wellness.

Breathtaking scenery, intriguing story but disturbing as hell! I wish I could un-see certain scenes but great film.

I won't be going on a Spa Weekend anytime soon. :doomed:

The Nun

Another instalment in the Conjuring/Annabelle series, some good scares and pulls a few things together from all the films. 5.5/10.

Just watched Patient Zero . Despite the wonderful Stanley Tucci it was DREADFUL. I am being kind in giving it a 4/10

I've no been to the cinima since Dispicable Me 3. There are few films I have beyond animation I feel compeled to watch. Over the past few years I have considered more often going to the big screen. Anyone seen the remake of A Star Is Born, with Bradly Cooper and Lady Gaga? I don't think I could watch it without being accompanied by an adult. Still think Grand Torino with Clint Eastwood is an excellent film.

That would be my worst nightmare tbh..... pulling a tooth is more appealing than listening to Bohemian Rhapsody! :thud:

Anyway, enjoy! :mrgreen:

Queen are in my DNA, older siblings exposed me to their music daily for years. I quite like it. :snooty:

A fave...
