I always found Bioshock to be a bit of a slog.  Too many fetch quests.  Was the best of the three though.

Dark Fate worked for me.  As far as I'm concerned it's the third film in the Terminator trilogy.  But still, I agree, no more.

I hated it quite a lot.  Apart from Grace.  She was good.  Everything else though was either rubbish or boring.

T3 was a perfectly good Terminator movie.  Although none of them come close to the greatness of the first one.

Shang-Chi

Apparently two hours long but felt like four.

I was into it for a while though.  All the kung fu goodness on the bus and at that club.  That was fun and it reminded me just how much I enjoyed fight films back in the day.

But it was a bit of a mess visually.  The CGI was just so apparent constantly.  And all that dragon stuff at the end was tiresome.  It made me feel exactly how I did during Man of Steel and at least a couple of the Marvel films.  If you show too much and go too big, so to speak, it's just too much to take in and becomes tedious.

A lot of these Marvel films are going to look so dated in the future.

FX is fun.  I've been meaning to watch the sequel for ages now.

I watched some things.

You Were Never Really Here

For a relatively short film, there's a lot of unnecessary filler but it was pretty good.  Joaquin Phoenix was decent in it.  Reminded me of the early '80s film The Exterminator but with a less methodical main character.

No Time To Die

Visually stunning, some lovely action set-pieces and I do like Daniel Craig's Bond a lot.  I liked the film overall but I had a few problems with it.  The fact that it expects you to just remember everything from the previous films.  I can barely tell any Bond film apart so I ended up having to stop the film and read through the plot of Spectre just to get to grips with this one.

Obviously, it's far too long.  The ideal length for a film is 80 minutes.  Anything over that is just padding so this one being almost three hours long was a struggle (literally, my eyes started to dry up towards the end).

My favourite thing about the film was watching Rami Malek get out-acted by that toddler in every scene they were in. 

30 Days of Night

I needed a bit of a comfort watch last night.  A dependable horror that I knew wouldn't let me down.  So I rewatched this one yet again.  It's weird that this film got such middling reviews as it's basically the perfect vampire movie.  I think it's absolutely fantastic.  Super evil vampires, the snowy setting.  Exactly how this genre should be done.

It's a shame that the sequel was so dreadful.





Risky Business

I've not watched that one in a long time but I'll add it to my list.  Tom's obviously weird but he's generally solid in whatever he's in.

Andrew Barker 808 State bassist and keyboardist aged 53

That's a shame.  Younger than I imagined too.

I always liked 808 State (my mates call them Bob State because a kid in school made that mistake once and it stuck).  Even though I was a goth/punk/metal kid, they were the 'dance' band that had the most edge to them.

They need to stop making Alien, Predator and Terminator films.  It's done. 

I can't quite put a finger on why this is but it is impossible to make a good film in any of those franchises now.

Nic Cage is great though and any film he is in is better for him being in it.  He makes a bad film tolerable.

New Dexter then.

I thought it was going to be dark and rugged because of the setting but it felt a bit twee, like Resident Alien.

I don't think it's going to be the one.

Also I'll be amazed if his son isn't some sort of whiney emo liability kid for the whole series.

I started watching the Friday the 13ths again.  Watched the first one a month or two back.  Liked it a lot.

Watched 2 and 3 on Saturday.  2 wasn't great but was entertaining.  3 was pretty awful.


I watched something on Netflix with Bruce Willis in it, a sci-fi film that was so atrocious I can’t even remember it’s name and frankly can’t be f$&ked looking it up, just know it was really bad and don’t be temted to loose 90 minutes watching it. 

CU Radbacker

Modern Bruce Willis films are worthless.  Apparently he shows up for one day and demands that all his filming is done then and then he disappears.  Completely phones it in now.

  The Mandela Effect does not state that Nelson Mandela never existed.   

I know.

I thought the absolute silliness of what I said implied I was joking.  In response to the same jokiness of Milstar's comment before.

I got the joke.  Don't mind me.

You watched Hatchet 2 yet?!

I'm rewatching House of Fools.  It's a lot of fun.

I am that stupid. Wait... There actually was a bloke named Nelson Mandela?

Nope, we all thought there was but he never really existed.  It's called The Mandela Effect.

I don't exclude a movie with a completely original, non-white spy.

The Art of War (2000) always felt like a black Bond 'em up.  I remember it being great fun to watch.  Probably needs a rewatch.

John Wick on paper should be exactly my sort of film but it just isn't.  They're kind of boring to be honest.
