Papillon - ******* loved it!

Equalliser 2 - same. Thought it was brilliant.

Creed 2 - didn't think it was that great tbh. Hard to know for sure as I watched it after the NFL early morning games and felt scattered. Seemed to lag a bit, wasnt as good as the first.

Chael Sonnen: Moral Champion
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back; a serviceable action film, bit cheesy at times, some ham-fisted dialogue, but plenty of fun action. But it goes to demonstrate why I've never really been compelled to pick up a Lee Child book. Just a bit of male wish fulfillment. 6.5/10
Because males wish they were poor loners whose only skills are investigation and fighting? He doesn't even get laid in the movies.

Surely that POV is better applied to 007?

The books are well worth a read. Don't be put off by terrible casting.
edit: ffs re Reacher
I've not read the books, so the casting is irrelevant to me. Cruise is largely fine in this movie, it's the paper-thin character that is the problem.

Badass super soldier with no ties drifts from town to town solving problems with his badassery. Maybe the books offer more depth, but he seems like a bit like a superhero with no discernible weakness.

Passengers: Boring, pointless, stupid, and terribly acted. 3/10

Upgrade: Entertaining enough, though the ending was a bit too predictable. 4.5/10

The Predator: Rubbish. Terrible acting all round, even by a few actors that are normally much better. Boyd Holbrook was also a terrible choice for lead in an action film. 3.5/10

Up in the Air (Clooney at his fiiiiinest) and Road Trip. Um... Stifler at his finest.

Behind Die Hard I assume?

So looking forward to hitting up some movies hard next week as I'll be on holidays. So thats middle of the day, weekdays, das it. Looking at seeing: Star, Widows and Second Act. (latter i know bit of puff but ill probably be in the mood for it).

I am fully open minded to seeing it, should the situation arise.

Does that help any?
Depends how old you are I guess but it’s considered a classic-must see by anyone over 40. Has aged well and still holds its own today.

Hope you get a chance to see it, in fact I’m gonna watch it now, **** it.

A mate of mine created his own high school production and his main protagonist was named Hans Gruber. :D

My one regret of my time in LA was not seeing Fox Plaza. :(

If you think that’s Stifler at his finest you’ve never seen Goon.

Bridesmaids. I had zero interest in this movie, but my wife had just started watching it when I sat down. Loved it. Really well written and terrific cast. Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy were both fantastic.

8/10

Spider-Man into the spider verse. Phenomenal film.
Artwork. Dialogue. Animation. Script. Voice acting. Story. Everything was almost perfect.
4.5/5

3.5/5 - Randomly chucked this on from Stan not knowing what it was about. Glad I did. Was an enjoyable movie that I laughed through the whole way. Loved the dark humour with the mix of awkwardness.

Ok ill prepare for hate.

Die hard is not a Christmas movie (nor is Lethal Weapon). Occurring AT Christmas isnt sufficient on its own, its has to have a plot that requires Christmas.

Elf, Home Alone, Arthur Christmas, The Santa Claus.... all christmas movies.

And Arthur Christmas is the greatest christmas movie of all time by the length of the Flemington straight.

Die Hard doesn’t happen without the Nakatomi Plaza xmas party, it’s integral to the plot.

Watched Phone Booth the other night (Farrell, Radha Mitchell, Katie Holmes, Forrest Whittaker).

Absolute cracker of a film, so tightly wound and tightly paced that even as the viewer you start getting clammy and short of breath. Farrell is magnificent as slick shiester Stu and the bit parters do their thing. Kiefer Sutherland as the menacing man on the phone is stellar as well. I think the real hero of this one is director Joel Schumacher though. It’s easy to forget his wins because his losses were so awfully bad (Batman forever and Batman and Robin) but the man knows his stuff.

8.5/10

Santa’s hat, Santa’s line, pretty much all of Christmas right there in just one scene.
