The Mule

Clint still walking about.

(Edit) 05/08/2019

Gave it 3 for old times sake. Long way from Rowdy Yates now. We all going in same direction, but not everyone gets millions of dollars for just being vertical.

Fair play can still remember lines at 89. Harry Dean Stantons last film, Lucky, was way more poignant, still with acting involved............if want to see an old guy deliver, best order that up.............

Destination Wedding

Lots of lines to remember!

(Edit) 30/07/2019

Is OK. Is different. Basically the two people talk through the whole film. Reeves is a robot, as normal. Odd banter is clever.....bit Homer Simpson with a GCSE...............

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Richard E makes it to 3

(Edit) 24/07/2019

Give it a 3 as Richard E is a good actor all day. Had some poor films, but few poor performances. Mel a lot better than her normal offering.......a sort of female Jack Black.

Green Book

Smooth acting.

(Edit) 20/07/2019

Great film. Well acted without over statement of the obvious. Period backdrop pretty much seamless. Makes all the right points without being patronising.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Kids love it

(Edit) 20/07/2019

More of the same, but for the kids is ideal. The colours and lights and the dragons seems to work for them for sure.

Wildlife

Folks at home.

(Edit) 20/07/2019

Well acted and executed. Not an uplifting film necessarily, but pretty near the mark for then and now. These days would probably included drugs of course.......that would have speeded the process i expect............

The Girl in the Spider's Web

Check the Swedish films as well.

(Edit) 20/07/2019

Craig version looks like one off. The Swedish films are very good, but subtitles etc. This rolled along pretty much on the character. Gutsy lady for sure.

Stan and Ollie

Reilly can act after all.

(Edit) 20/07/2019

Step Bros was funny as a one off, but the banal series of films Reilly has been drawn willing into have not been the best. Will has done a couple of decent straightish films, including Elf of course, but many have been dire rubbish.

Steve is known to be capable of acting and impersonations, and lives up to it spot on as Laurel. Reilly is oliver. He not only gets the movement and facial nuance, but also the character.

Saw all their films when was a small kid, as not much else on TV then. The dance routine at the Saloon entrance is just about perfection.

Oscars probably just skip past it all en route for some politically correct outcome.....................

To get one person to a T is clever, but to get two at once, with the inter-action, is unique.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Expensive boring.

(Edit) 05/07/2019

Jude and Depp. What could go wrong? Dialogue goes on and on, with lot of PC graphics in between. May as well watch computer game. Like Potter, is going to go on and on and on.........................

Three Identical Strangers

Interesting documentary

(Edit) 29/06/2019

Not a film of course. Is a documentary, but well executed. Sympathetic interviewing and edited efficiently.

Nobody's Fool

Gutsy girls rule.

(Edit) 29/06/2019

Romps along with not much delicacy, but modern girls will recognise the dynamics i suspect..........

Dead in a Week: Or Your Money Back

Tom has a good time.

(Edit) 29/06/2019

Have to give it 4 as there is just so much junk about, and is pleasant change to see some acting at last, and a simple film, with small budget, showing can still have a fun film.

Tom is understated, as always, but, like Geoffrey Rush, just cruises through with perfect timing.

Lavender Hill Mob meets Beautiful Joe.................

Mortal Engines

Better than trailer depicted.

(Edit) 29/06/2019

Actually is quite good. Totally ridiculous, but, like Waterworld and Mad Max, does keep a pace up. Wild Wild West machine rings a bell here and there.

Doctor Who meets PC games. Leading lady does quite well really.

Sorry to Bother You

Never finished it.

(Edit) 29/06/2019

Could not see the point really. Not sufficiently clever or original to warrant the electricity, so never got past half hour..............

Speed Kills

Not John's best.

(Edit) 29/06/2019

Bit pedestrian. John just wandering about. Maybe a true story, but no dynamics. From Paris With Love was so much better is no comparison. Forger was way better as well.
