Game Night

Lame Night

(Edit) 19/08/2018

Not a bad premise but after a fairly promising start the film just falls off the edge of a cliff in regards to both laughs and action. A completely non-sensical plot and far too many jokes that fall flat.

Special mention though for Jesse Plemons who is by far the stand out cast member.

Avoid.

Loving Vincent

Perhaps They Will Listen Now??

(Edit) 23/02/2018

What a fantastic work of art this is. To be honest I could sit here and marvel at the way the makers of this film managed to create such a beautiful piece (and it does indeed deserve marvelling), but instead I will just say how much this film moved me in ways I never imagined it would.

Telling the story of the last few days of Vincent Van Gogh's life and what led him to his apparent suicide, this film has important messages on subjects such as mental health and the perils of posthumous notoriety. That the makers of this film managed to do this whilst also presenting every scene in a breath taking oil painting like fashion is what really stands this away from the competition.

I can't really recommend this film highly enough. A true artistic testament to a true genius of a man.

5/5.

Brawl in Cell Block 99

Poor Prisoner

(Edit) 18/02/2018

After enjoying S. Craig Zahler's western opus 'Bone Tomahawk' a year or two ago, I came to 'Brawl In Cell Block 99' with a sense of anticipation and expectation that I would enjoy this follow up. I could not have been more wrong.

First off the acting in this film is terribly wooden. I have enjoyed the work of Vince Vaughan in the past (especially in the late 90's classic 'Swingers') but in this film he seems to have decided that mumbling his way through every scene will suddenly transform himself into Marlon Brando. The supporting cast are equally dull and uninteresting with no one character standing out.

The sound is also poor.

The fight scenes are laughable in places and Zahler just seems to have decided to cover everything over with excessive violence, which unfortunately for him doesn't work to hide this train wreck of a film.

Very disappointing.
