Ray

Ray does his thing

(Edit) 09/11/2019

Sex and drugs and Ray. He was a busy boy. If he had not lost his sight may not have been so resilient. Certainly had a great time. Playing music, shooting up, and getting loads of ladies in tow. Who needs rock and roll?

Jamie does well as Ray. Saw the extended version and was doable.

Men in Black: International

PC Generated boring

(Edit) 01/11/2019

Getting bit bored with watching PC games as films. Better acting and storyline would help. MIB 1 and 2 and RIPD were fine, but the stream of Marvel films and films like this just boring now..................

Killers Anonymous

Come back Leon

(Edit) 08/10/2019

Gary must like a few easy bob. Fairly pointless film as missed out on almost any endearing facets............humour, tension, plot, empathy.................

Fisherman's Friends

1950's film without lead character.

(Edit) 08/10/2019

Like Brit films. Handy true story ones can be good fun.......Calendar girls etc...........but really found this a bit cringeworthy in places. Felt sorry for some of the actors to be fair, as some did their best with what they had been given. Mays as the lead was really the one reason he had no redeeming features. Surprised Pegg didnt come back from Startrek for a few easy quid...............some nice singing though, if like the finger in ear music.............

Shazam!

BIG with coloured suit.

(Edit) 18/09/2019

Masses of computer graphics, naturally. Most films these days are like watching PC games now. Is quite good fun, kids can probably watch this one quite happily, has good juniors input as a core.

Eye for an Eye

Long way from Swordfish or Paris With Love etc.

(Edit) 11/09/2019

Trying to think of one redeeming feature? Seeing Brendan Foster as a gross example of mankind is only one can think of. Plot, dialogue, pace, empathy........all missing.

John doing some poor stuff now.

I Feel Pretty

Nearly. Could have worked

(Edit) 02/09/2019

Is watchable/entertaining, but could have been far more edgy. Was a bit like Jack Black in drag. Too much flimsy US toilet humour, and not quite the edge it could of had. Devil wears Prada had style, this has splash and noise.

About Time

Groundhog gets money.

(Edit) 02/09/2019

Once again we have the idle rich wandering about. Opposite backdrop to Run Fat Boy Run. Not being a communista, but lack of reality is almost as far fetched as the theory of Narnia/cupboards.

That said, the acting is pretty good, and the execution saves the film from being total waste of electricity. Bill is Bill, as usual. His way of moving and talking almost precludes him from doing any other type of film, although he could easily go for spooky serial killer like the much missed Robin Williams in One Hour Photo. Billy Connolly could be very nasty guy when wanted to be, and he is supposed to be a part time actor. Come on Bill, get a meaty part and break the mould.

Hitman: Redemption

Self employed seeks electric chair.

(Edit) 28/08/2019

Is not a bad film, but cannot go above a 2 stars, as once again the normality of murder as an acceptable occupation......... The Jesse James syndrome with guns and glorification of psychopaths.......... Again the pretty young lady totally bowled over by the geriatric overweight, even with heart condition and no obvious charm. Grandfather complex gone mad.........stretching credibility to the limit. Quite doubtful to be fair, verging on un-healthy.

Dumbo

Kids should see the original 1941 as well.

(Edit) 27/08/2019

1941. Not long after Fantasia. Amazing film. Imagination through the roof.......where is the novelty now? Tim Burton has done some pretty original material, but he had a job on his hands here. Has managed to get some of the original on board, like the pink elephants.........how many tens of thousand of hand painted slides to do the original!

Tried to explain to grand children how they made the original animations. They just could not grasp the concept, the enormity of the process!

Kids will still love it. Keaton and Farrell and De Vito a bit wasted. All that money could have been saved, and great chance for someone new to have a go................Hollywood keeps them on until they drop.................

Salting the Battlefield

Part 3 Finale

(Edit) 27/08/2019

Rounds off 3 good films. Reminds me of Tinker Tailor, the originals. Quite intelligent dialogue, for once. Bill is the same in every film he does, but his persona fits this role. Hardly a lady killer really, but they have to do it, they feel obliged..............

Turks and Caicos

Intelligent fim, for once.

(Edit) 27/08/2019

Old school film, that means you have to listen to what they are saying, and no excuse, because they actually deliver the lines in a recognizable form!

Lot of good folk in this little film. Walken, as always, is a delight. Hathaway is just great, and far above Bill's masculine weight, but have to imagine he has hidden potential. Ralph is deeply devious.

Great set of 3 films, and this one is the best. How they managed to get 5 top actors in one little film is a gem.............

Blackadder's Christmas Carol

Good Xmas stocking filler

(Edit) 27/08/2019

If have a small gap to fill at Xmas, this tucks in well. Not quite the Scrooge original, but a good tongue in cheek take.

Page Eight

Bill scores double top.

(Edit) 18/08/2019

Bill is a very odd ladies man, but in many films he is aligned with lovely girls half his age. He looks as bemused as everyone else. Tinker-tailor style with quite good complexity.

Competent effort, and , although not ground breaking, spins along OK.

Surviving Christmas

Bit dated.

(Edit) 18/08/2019

Bit slow by todays standards. OK Xmas flick, and no swearing etc, which counts for something these days. Kids can watch as well for once.
