  1. Great movie. Much respect. Pretty much liked everything about it except the action sequences. They were at times hard to follow. The Dorah Milajae were awesome. Danai Gurira and Boseman had such great interactions. Love all the coloniser references and very thought provoking when they refer to black enslavement. Especially Killmongers last line. ' Throw my body in the sea like my ancestors. They knew it was better to die free than live in bondage.' Powerful line. A- Most engaging audience i have ever encountered in a viewing. There were massive cheers and claps. Great to see. Was probably 70% black, 25% south Asian and the rest white. There was so much happiness in their eyes. They were all leaving the cinema with their faces beaming.
  2. Saw it in 70mm Imax and was not disappointed. I really enjoyed this movie...But it didnt feel like i was watching Star Wars. Well, it did but at times it didnt. I feel everything was in order, the pacing, the action and the special effects (most of the time). Carrie gave a great final performance and her last scene with Hamill made my eyes water. I was just disappointed with the direction of Lukes character arc. Luke is hope. He managed to bring Darth Vader back to the light...fucking Vader! You telling me he gave up and went emo cos Ben Solo got corrupted? Nah sorry i cant buy that. Hamill did a fantastic job though in this movie. Rey, i just love her. She is great. Kylo can suck dick. Actually he was better in this movie lol. He grew on me. Finn and Rose worked well and Poe is the man. As for Snoke. What a complete let down. No other words to describe it. Just absolutely pointless having him in the new movies. Why did they even create him? No backstory or anything. Everyone wants to know where another Sith lord popped up from. Master and his apprentice. Thats how the dark side works. Who was his master. Questions we will never get the answer to. Where were the other Knights of Ren? They are supposed to be force users too. The red guards were awesome! So at the end its clear Rey and Kylo are not as powerful as Anakin. As Snoke is still trying to create a Vader. We are shown that they do not need to be. Which puts my mind to rest abit. I just cant deal with another chosen one story. That kid at the end with the broom. Gangster Luke joining the force was bittersweet. Goodbye buddy. B+/A- I wanted to see Luke use his Green saber at the end
  3. Great film with some great characters. The actors from IT and Stranger Things are just amazing. They embody the 80's (and early 90's) look so well. Marvelous actors. I felt like i was watching the Goonies for both. Beverly will grow up to be a stunner....she looks so much like Amy Adams. I hope they cast her in the sequel. It was quite different from the mini series. No slingshot that was iconic for me. Granted i didn't see the mini series all throughout as i was terrified as a kid lol. But a job well done overall. The CGI could be cut out though. My only real gripe. Ruined the tension at times. Bring on the sequel. A
  4. My favourite marvel villain Dr Doom vs Avengers idea has me salivating
  5. A movie that wasnt good but wasnt entirely bad either. A movie like this should not be a forgettable and it is a shame. The biggest team up in history and it falls flat. Some good moments with a few good laughs. The 'do you bleed' and 'somethings definitely bleeding' was hilarious. Aquaman was good but i feel very underutilized. Perhaps they held back from displaying his full power set and back story for his solo movie which is fine. But lets be frank he wasnt needed here. But i really liked him. Probably more so than all the others. Flash, well he was OK but he looks nothing like Barry Allen. Just gets to me as an avid comic book fan, when the actors dont look even the slightest like their comic book counterparts. Plus i have no idea why they have to force on Wally Wests or Bart Allens personality on Barry. Thats not who he is. Anyways he had some good scenes. Wonder Woman needs Patty Jenkins. Batman needs to be recast. Affleck looks fat as hell and his body proportion is just not right for the role. He definitely cant stand properly and his suits are horrible. Though i dont like him as Batman i do feel offended that they really just ridiculed him this movie. He got his ass handed to him on many occasions. Also his whole guilt thing about Superman, i get it. I would feel guilty too if i starred in BvS. Cyborg was decent. I feel he could develop nicely in future movies. Superman...finally! This is how he should be. Had to wait 3 movies for the real deal to appear. Steppenwolf...GTFO. Worse shit i have ever seen. My God that CGI was bad. So so bad that its unforgivable. His mouth couldnt even move according to the words properly. Christ, how the effects team did this i have no idea. Supermans upper lip was only noticeable in that first clip. Other than that it was bearable. Superman vs the League = GOLD The plot about the mother boxes barely made sense. What was it all about. Terraforming? like what Zod wanted? Could have just used the kryptonian technology from Man of Steel dumbass. Only one mention of Darkseid when he said praise Darkseid. Nothing else. Pathetic. Other than that the movie was just OK. Shitty editing and generic music and it could have been better and had a better story if it didnt need to develop 3 new characters. Its a pity. We wont be getting another Justice League anytime soon. What a flop. Its shameful. The 2 credits scenes were well done. Lex Luthor actually looked somewhat like Lex Luthor...until he opened his mouth. C- I am still looking forward to Aquaman. I'm hoping the new batch of filmakers reignite everyone passion for DC movies like Wonder Woman did. I feel Justice League killed Wonder Womans momentum. But honestly i'm not holding my breath. My childhood dreams are shattered.
  6. Amazing movie. This is why Nolan is the best director working today. One of the most intense movies i have ever seen. Just had to be seen in IMAX. Couldn't make out much of the dialogue because it was so loud but it wasn't really needed. It did get confusing at times so i can understand some people not getting into it. But Nolans technical mastery above all else has to be applauded. Genius at work. It's not his best movie but definitely superior to his previous works in the technical department. My only gripe is that i didnt see 400,000 men on the beach. There were 200,000 on the pelennor fields. We all know how big that orc army looked. Double that should have been on the screen here but nothing. Just had a few lines of people queuing up. Missed opportunity here. Would have looked amazing in IMAX to see that many on the beach as the camera pans over. Cinematography and directing oscar nominations should be a shoo in. A travesty if they don't win. A
  7. First time there. Its only a couple of metres smaller than BFI. I hope the seats are more comfortable than BFi though. But i'm not holding my breath. 15/70 Imax legroom is bad pretty much everywhere from what i have heard.
  8. I've booked science museum for next Sunday. BFI is packed for the times i can go. Best seats are taken and i don't wanna wait till August to get decent seats
  9. Did he say No lanterns?! lol nice and that was Superman at the end, you could see a bit of his red cape. Disappointed its not the 'leaked' description that was posted a while ago. Story looks interesting, but the trailer didnt flow very well
  10. "Let me be clear," says Affleck, "Batman is the greatest f--king part in the world. I am thrilled to do it."
  11. Naomi Scott is a good choice. Will Smith is spot on for Genie. The guy is OK. Don't know much about him so cant say a lot. Just wondering how long hair would look on him. But so far i am not disappointed.
  12. Im sure they referred to 'creators' as in plural in AoE. Thats what makes me doubt quintessa being the origin of their species. But maybe Lockdown was working for her. i could be wrong. I may need to read up on t4 again. Only seen it the once. I just wish there was some clear continuity throughout all the movies. Every movie just brings up different eras and they barely make sense. As individual movies maybe a person can understand them. But as a saga...nope.
  13. So bad. The story and mythos doesn't make sense at all. Just gets me angry at how they cannot keep continuity especially when it is the same director. The editing and dialogue is cringe worthy. The characters are lame. Though i did enjoy the new English ladies role and her interactions with Wahlberg. Probably the only highlight of the movie. The kid was pointless. The action was senseless. The lore just makes my head hurt. Not one transformers movie fits with another. Contradiction contradictions. Im also not a fan of what they have done with Unicron. But the credit scene got me intrigued. I miss Shia. He was great. Part 2 and 3 had problems but he made us care about the events happening. Mark hasn't done that. Im a fan of Bay and think the first Transformers is his best film alongside The Rock and Armageddon. But every sequel sucks. Hopefully with Bay gone they can come up with something coherent. D- So just to add something. It seemed to me Quintessa is not the creator of the Transformers as she is called the great deceiver by the Knights. Plus we saw alien hands in Age of Extinction. Which are obviously not hers. So lockdown from AoE did not work for her.
  14. I really really really enjoyed this movie. It had a lot of heart. Something that has been missing in the DCEU. Thank you Patty Jenkins. Thank you so much. Firstly i would just like to say that i did not believe that Gal Gadot would be able to carry her own movie. I didn't think she had the acting chops for such a role. Boy was i proven wrong. She was amazing. I truly believed she was Wonder Woman. I liked her in BvS but got worried as we never saw really saw much of her, so i relied on her past acting roles. All i can do is congratulate her for a job well done. She is truly an actress. One who will improve by every movie i am sure. Also she is absolutely gorgeous. What a beautiful specimen to look at. As for everyone else...they all did a job well done. Steve especially was great and my word did he have a great chemistry with Gal. Seriously for me it was one of the best onscreen couples in a long time. It was also very poignant at the end The story barring the end was cool. It didn't need to be exceptional and it wasn't but for Diana it was perfect. It showed her child like understanding of the world and her solution paid off. Maybe we all need to think like children; no hate, no prejudice just peace and love. The ending with Ares i guess served its purpose. i would have just liked him to have had more scenes throughout the movie. Not as Ares but as his human character. When he popped up at the end i didn't really feel any betrayal or any sort. The visual effects were quite Snydery at times. I used to enjoy seeing Snyders artistic style but not anymore. Not to say wonder Woman was like it, just some elements when it came to the action. But overall they were decent. The fight choreography was awesome. I did feel some punches and elbows thrown were quite lazy and not very hard hitting. But overall the Amazons kicked ass. The movie was fun and quite funny at times. There weren't many Marvel type jokes (thank god!) but the ones they used were quite funny and fit the story. One scene for me stuck out most. That dance scene (swaying) with Steve and Diana, and then when he dropped her off to the bedroom. Something about it, was just so beautiful. Maybe because of their chemistry. That part where he drops her off and is about to leave and you can just see the attraction in their eyes. It was not lust, but something more. Anyways it just felt well directed to me. i think the only gripe about this film is Ares as previously mentioned. I don't think they should have had him killed all the Gods, because that makes him overpowered. Perhaps have had him switched allegiance to another God (Darkseid). Perfect set up for Justice League. But anyways missed opportunity there. I'm sure they will bring back her Patrons in the sequel or something. Also now that i think about it i think the slow scenes were at times dragging. perhaps they could have been sped up somehow. One thing i don't understand. How do they know over 100 languages if they have not interacted with the modern world for thousands of years? Also after Ares was defeated the German soldiers started to hug each other or were they the British? I don't recall them arriving. Perhaps i missed it. Overall though not much to complain. This movie impressed me. I am so glad to see such strong females displayed on screen. That is not to say women have not headlined movies or shown female empowerment. It was just the message of love and peace coming from a woman who cares. It reminded me of the love that my mother has displayed towards me and my sisters. The hard work my wife puts into taking care of me (SHHHH dont tell her that!) and the future i see for my daughter. As a father of a 2 year old, i feel so happy that i will be able to show my daughter when she is of age this superhero. I can feel proud of whatever she wants to be in life....a doctor (i'm south Asian what the hell). Anyways, i think it is quite evident i loved this movie. I hope it does not diminish in any future viewings. This has really got me excited for Justice League if nothing else just to see more of her story. A 9/10 Only because i felt some scenes dragged at times.
  15. Would have preferred just a remake. But Emily should be great. Looking forward to this.
  16. I was expecting 40.05 for opening day but Saturday and Sunday have been quite healthy. Pretty satisfied with this.
  17. Ridiculous number from deadline. Its not doing anything below 40m that's for sure.
  18. So the creators of humans did not create the xenomorphs, it was instead the creation of humans that did. Worse than Prometheus. Nothing intriguing about the storyline. No real history told about the engineers. I know David was always a prick but didn't really explain why he killed Shaw via facehugger. Also he experimented with the black liquid and a fly and eventually ended up with the face huggers...which obviously must have been quite a few years after he killed the engineers. So Shaw was alive all those years? She witnessed the destruction of the engineer people but nothing was shown from her point of view. Was she complicit or was she a prisoner? Anyways, very disappointed. Very weak storyline. D thinking about it now, maybe David killed Shaw before he got to the engineer planet and kept her deceased body to experiment on. But needed a live host to see the full results. Meh still a D
