 Yes,we were in to see Dunkirk at the w/e.Wasnt what we expected.Good film,a bit bleak for a large part of it,but maybe the aim was to keep it as real as possible.   7.5/10

I dinna go to the pics (too sad to have anyone to go with) so I tend to watch when they become free on demand TV here, by then you've al seen them so I don't comment.

It's been fucking ages since I've seen a half decent film at the cinema. I think I've fallen asleep for an unprecedented 7 times in a row recently.

To pacify the current Mrs Al I went to see "Murder on the Orient Express"
If I was in a good mood I'd rate it as 5/10.
However I'm not, so it's a 4/10
Even she didn't overly rate it.

Enough said ::)

Thank you Al. You’ve saved a couple of hours of life. Me and the Mrs were thinking of going to go see it in London one afternoon next week, only cos we usually take in a film when we’re down there and that was the one she suggested. But when our 16 year old saw it last weekend, she didn’t rate it so that was an alarm bell and so you’ve just killed the possibility. It can get to fuck. Never got into Agatha Christie anyway. Bitch.

Saw the posters for this one which is released in early January.
Apparently Gary Oldman is outstanding in the role of Churchill.

 We also went to see murder on the Orient express last night.Thought it and the storyline was a bit meh with Kenneth Branagh unconvincing as Poirot. 5/10 about right.
    Darkest hour looks like a winner as said  :thumbsup:

Gary Oldman is a fantastic actor. Highly underrated by some and I've never understood why. Will definitely check this out.

I'm going to The Florida Project tomorrow then The Death of Stalin and maybe Film Stars don't Die in Liverpool next week

Lat week I saw Call Me By Your Name - very much hyped and rave reviews but I didn't really see what the fuss was all about - wasn't overly taken with one of the main characters - would maybe not have gone if I had seen a trailer

Wasnt that impressed by dunkirk.

Annoying as fuck soundtrack and very averqge.

Needed to be hollywoodised for me.

The music score tried to make it out to be a classic movie which it certainly isnt.

Hacksaw ridge is 100 times a better movie.

Finally got round to seeing baby driver recently. Loved it although probably not quite as much as drive.

What’s everyone’s thoughts on the new Star Wars? Haven’t seen it yet

The last jedi is awesome manc.

It brings back the magic of the jedi powers which was lacking in the previous 2 films.

Probably the best star wars film to date.

Loved it!

Highly recommended.

Never seen any of the Star wars films so can't do any spoilers for you.

Went to Ai Weiwei's Human Flow tonight. Harrowing. Sobering.

Not that "sobering" as such in that we were able to buy and drink alcohol during the film!

Never done that before. Belmont.

Very pleased that I went to the film but can hardly recommend it to you. Not that kind of film.

Gives a real and very hard-hitting perspective of one of the biggest human tragedies on the planet today.

The last jedi is distinctly fucking average at best and a total mess in places.  To describe this the best star wars film ever is utterly ridiculous.  Seriously, you think this is better than empire? Jesus wept. :hammer:
