What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

Recommended Posts

I, Tonya (2017)

 

You don't need to have any interest in ice skating to appreciate this darkly humorous and tragic biopic of the fallen Olympic star. Worth watching.

Roman J Isreal Esq. (2017)

 

A sixties style activist lawyer caught up in Los Angeles legal business trouble. The movie is of interest for the exceptional lead performance whereas the story wanders.

Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017)

 

The story behind the creation of the Pooh books by AA Milne and his struggles coping with war is overly sugared. I would normally pass on this but OK for family viewing.

The Square (2017)

 

Longish avant-garde Swedish art movie satire mostly spoken in the vernacular but with some well known UK/US actors in parts never quite meets the sum of its clever parts. Memorable for its eerie ape scene during an awards dinner near the end.

Penny Dreadful

 

Explorer Sir Malcolm Murray, American gunslinger Ethan Chandler, scientist Victor Frankenstein, and medium Vanessa Ives unite to combat supernatural threats in Victorian London.

 

Interesting concept to combine all the characters in to this series.

3 seasons.

 

*** 1/2

The Rite (2011) - leaving aside the hocus pocus, that is religion and exorcism, this is a good movie, nicely set in a gungy Rome.

 

Anthony Hopkins, Colin O'Donoghue, Alice Braga, Ciarán Hinds, Toby Jones, Rutger Hauer.

 

Anthony Hopkins does a great performance.

 

Well worth the watch.

3 Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.

 

Some fine performances from Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson. A good story too and some unexpected twists.

 

Worth a watch.

Avengers, Infinity war.

 

Yawn, yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn yawn

 

More an excuse to get all the Marvel characters in one movie really than anything else. Plenty of them get killed off and very obvious there is going to be yet more of this.

 

High point: Zoe Saldana

Low point: Zoe Saldana gets deaded.

 

Watch, if you must.

I saw this on a QANTAS flight recently, they promoted it as a great "Comedy"

 

I didn't laugh much, but it was a good film
