Caught Khartoum with Charlton Heston on the tv. Pretty solid 60's historical epic. Was interesting to read writeups criticizing it for the racial aspect with the good white Heston going up against the evil brownface Laurence Olivier. Obviously getting out the boot polish isn't something you can do, but reading the actual history the film went out of its way to make a lot of stuff up to make Olivier's character more honorable in victory than the real person.

Watched Solo. Gave this a miss at the cinemas and I stand by that. For a movie that nobody asked for and was a bit messy, it was ok. I can honestly say that I liked it a whole lot more than the Last Jedi which was just trash. The movie was full of flaws and some questionable casting but around a 5.5/10 for me.

Caught up on a couple of movies I missed.

Hacksaw Ridge (I work in the world of military history so I struggle with most new war movies but I enjoyed this one a lot. The religious Mel Gibson style kind of ground me in places but overall good action and what a story. 8/10

Rush (Solid movie expect for Hemsworths dodgy British accent. Made me research a lot about older F1 after the movie. Those guys were absolutely nuts. So many deaths. 7/10

I watched it a couple of days ago. I found it pretty dull mostly tbh. It just had nothing really appealing about it.

Wtf was up with Darth Maul appearing from no-where? I swear i saw Obi-wan cut him in half? It made no sense to me that what's her name was in cahoots with him. it's like they are planning a sequel which i can't believe would ever be made.

Darth Maul has been alive and well with robo legs in Rebels/Clone Wars for a while now. I cna imagine it would have been a surprise to most fans but anyone who has a bit of an understanding of the canon, while surprised, was not shocked by the reveal.

ALITA - Battle Angel. A great futuristic film by James Cameron based on the 90's Japaneses manga series. Stunning effects and visuals and great action. Christolph Waltz is wonderful and this young woman (played by the beautiful Rosa Salazar) kicks some major league ass! And definite room for a sequel! 8/10

What Waits Below aka Secrets of the Phantom Caverns
Mercenary/cave diver/kung-fu expert/Socially conscious & environmentally responsible ladies man Pete "Wolf" Wolfsen goes deep into a cave with some scientists and army men to retrieve a poorly disguised Commodore 64 computer that they pretend is an ultra-sonic transmitter. On the way they discover a remote society of human beings who cover themselves in talcum powder, wear white moccasins, and enjoy knitting. Ripper movie. 8/10

Robot legs? The dude got cut in half at the waist. He then tumbled down some huge vent thing if I remember right, in two seperate pieces.

I think it’s taking the piss personally and I don’t think they should bank on the small percentage who follow the non movie stuff. It came off as random and stupid to me, but I only watch the movies.

Anyway, it was a pretty forgettable movie so at least that part stands out.

Same as the bullshit about Boba Fett surviving that Sarlaac monster in ROTJ.

He died so let him die in peace ffs. :rolleyes:

Nate and Hayes aka Savage Islands (1983)
Before Tommy Lee Jones was typecast as Tommy Lee Jones, he managed to snag a role as a poor impersonation of Harrison Ford.
Incredible they had the gall to write "a 19th century Raiders of the Lost Ark!" on the VHS cover given the film contained frame-by-frame remakes of many iconic Indiana Jones scenes.
Favourite bit was when Tommy Lee Jones was jousting with a woman and after he disarmed her he punched her right in the face. Classy stuff.
This film is so shit I didn't even rewind the tape after I was done. No surprise it took the film industry 20 years to release another movie with pirates in it. Warmly recommended. 6/10




Stitches (1985)
Generally not a great sign when the director refuses to put their name on a film but anyway.
Ex-Clint Eastwood side-bitch Rebecca Perei plays bimbo Bambi Bilenka who walks around a medical school getting tricked into revealing her norks by "cool guy on campus" Parker Eastwood. In retaliation Parker's love interest takes her clothes off for a room full of men and then starts doing pranks to get back at him. That's legitimately as close to a plot as this one gets.
Derogatory foreign stereotypes, rampant homophobia, questionable objectification of women + gags that fall completely flat, slow pacing. And girls taking their clothes off. As far as the "1980's sex comedy" genre goes this one is abysmal. You'll be hard pressed to find a film more dated than this! 3/10

Darth Maul returning is stupid. A silly thing made for cartoon that has now found its way to screen because of the easy pleased 'everything is awesome' section of the fan base and to try and raise interest from more casual fans.

Bit different to Boba Fett surviving being knocked in to the sarlacc because the story was he just used his jettpack to fly out of it. Maul was cut in two and fell in to a bottomless pit.

saw Valhalla Rising the other day. I've been playing God of War 4 recently and my interest in the Greek mythology has increased tenfold so I found this really captivating. 8/10

I haven’t seen any of the older Hollywood versions but I thought this was pretty good. 7.5/10.

Both the leads did really well and the filming of the performances made you feel like you were on stage with them, particularly the opener.

I really liked both of these, Andrew Garfield was immense in Hacksaw, what a performance.
