    Jordan Peele's 'Us'

    Same here, clocked it pretty much from the beginning. It sort of irritated me a bit as I really hate it when I get ahead of films. It takes me out of the experience, as I end up grumpily sitting there waiting for the film to do its big ‘ta da!’ Rug pull. Identity was the other movie where I can remember this happening. It’s like spotting how a magician does a trick while he’s still halfway through it, and personally I’d always rather be fooled and surprised than wearily proved right. Still there was still a lot of other things to enjoy, loved Winston Duke’s performance as a goofy sitcom dad, and the script was generally pretty funny. Thought there was way too much exposition in the end, and it was a classic example of telling and not showing. For me there was just enough exposition that my brain started working overtime trying to work out the inconsistencies. Also (not a massive spoiler, more a question for those that have seen the film.):

    The iOS gaming thread

    I wish I’d got a royalty too.
  3. I really enjoyed it! Only negatives were the needle drops, which while era appropriate, were rarely used well. Just seemed like a waste of some good tracks. I also thought the fight/actions scenes were all a bit fast cut/blurry, and largely unexceptional. Everything else though, from the performances to the script was great. Overall I really enjoyed it. Can see why it’s over familiar to some as a sort of Guardians/Thor origin mashup, but I for one can’t wait to see Marvel go toe-to-toe with Thanos.
  4. I’m pumped too, got IMAX tickets to see it. Look forward to reading your review!
  5. I did write @mansizerooster a PM apologising, but basically I was just having a bit of an off day - I’d just been diagnosed with diabetes after spending 10 days in an intensive care ward nil by mouth, so I was a bit out of sorts. Sorry for massively derailing the thread, the whole point is, most of us love Marvel (or love to talk about it!), so this thread should be a celebration, reviews and all. Sorry for being a grumpy prick.
  6. Would you mind doing these in the movie watching blog thread instead? Or at least just adding the additional reviews to your original post? As much as I mostly agree with your taste, this is where I want to hear about any future plans that Marvel have let slip from their Iron Fist, rather than your hot takes on Thor: The Dark World or whatever. It’s just really disappointing every time I click it, and it’s just not really the point of the thread.

    Hellboy to be rebooted, new director and lead

    I’m fairness I thought the first trailer looked like trash, but enjoyed the new one quite a bit more.
  8. I'd love to see a Meatboy style cascade of fail at the end of the level! Amazing work Carleton! Have you got a story line?

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part

    I've had a think about it, and I think the one thing that really disappointed me about this film was that despite a lengthy space section, there was very little Benny, and only a few blink-and-you'll-miss-'em references to 70's/80's space Lego.

    Das Re-boot, surely?

    First film seen at the cinema

    Holy crap, that's where I saw my first movie, Sleeping Beauty.

    Good new horror films

    Just watched this - thought the first act was kind of crappy, but it ultimately redeemed itself when you realise the first act is just a brilliant set up for joke after joke in the third act. Andy Kaufman used a technique called ‘bombing’ in his stand up, where he’d see how far he could push an audience’s patience before getting them back onside at the end - this is sort of the movie equivalent. Definitely worth going in as cold as possible, but amazed that someone finally managed to do something new with the tired zombie comedy set up. It’s a real love letter to indie film-making, and definitely worth sticking it out to the end. One Cut of the Dead definitely gets two severed thumbs up from me.

    Bad movies you can't help but to love

    Me and my sister watched this obsessively as teenagers. ‘Supplies!’ still makes me laugh every time I remember it. And the Emo Phillips cameo. And “Not many people know this, but the turtle is nature’s suction cup!” Genius.

    A movie watchers blog

    Have you seen Revolver starring Oliver Reed? That's definitely my favourite Poliziotteschi, and it's still very watchable.
