Oil in the Blood

Have to be into bikes.

(Edit) 04/12/2019

If make bikes, like i do, is a 5 star, but if prefer football....is a 1 . Lot of work to edit all the mass of interviews down to even 2 hours!

Surviving Christmas with the Relatives

Predictable acting sort of Xmas based.

(Edit) 29/11/2019

Not really an Xmas special, just the normal family in massive house with limitless money and dont work scenario.

Toy Story 4

Toy too far

(Edit) 24/11/2019

Is OK but a bit dragged along from the previous. Was not necessary. Saw same day as life of pets 2, so was a poor second. Given it 3 as is colourful and no swearing etc, so has to be better than most whatever....................

The Secret Life of Pets 2

Pets more intelligent than owners?

(Edit) 24/11/2019

Once again a kids cartoon with more imagination and clever dialogue than most adult films. De Caprio et al eat your hearts out........but that prob in their next film?

Animation is getting so good now , paint missing off railings, weeds growing in odd natural places etc. Mass of light and colour raises the spirits on a bleak day.

One to take the kids to, plus granny!..........take everyone..............

Aladdin

Better than Dumbo

(Edit) 19/11/2019

Again the original is best. Have to be wary copying things. Beauty and the Beast was clever. Dumbo was not. This is in between the two i guess. Will Smith made some strong money i suspect, but an unknown could have had a chance at the genie perhaps?

Late Night

Not quite Prada.

(Edit) 19/11/2019

Lots of dialogue. Probably not an ideal role for Emma? Feels very much like a poor copy of Devil Wears Prada, but without the bite, or the tightness.

Maybe less talking and more acting could have made it a bit more cutting edge? Nearly a 2..........

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.
