Uri : The Surgical Strike is another Indian action movie based on true events. It's about Indian special forces carrying out a counter terrorism operation in Pakistan occupied Kashmir. The tagline could have been "India. fu** yeah" as it's bit of a propaganda piece. But it's well shot and directed, and I found it quite watchable.Hotel Mumbai - quite a solid and tense film around the real events that hit the Taj Hotel in 2008 with a terrorist attack. Serviceable leads and had a real feeling of terror and hopelessness throughout. 7.5/10
Watched the 3 Thor films over the last 3 nights. First two were ok, but Ragnarok was complete garbage. First 1h45m was filled with junk comedy full of filler story that did the film no favours save for 15-20 minutes of it in certain parts.
You may have missed the dedicated thread on this movie.Avengers: Endgame -- It was enjoyable in parts but went on way too long. The middle where they break up into teams on their quests just dragged on. I liked fat/drunk Thor. Didn't like the weird hybrid Hulk. The cast was way too big and consequently the film felt like a montage. It also had way too many "endings" and goodbyes....jeez enough already. It was entertaining at times so I'll be generous and give it a 7/10.
I would be giving this a 10/10.The Sting (1973) - A classic I hadn't gotten around to watching until last night, it's easily understandable why so many people loved this film. The basic gist is that Hooker (Robert Redford) wants to pull a big con as revenge for a mafia boss killing his mentor, so enlists the help of a master conman (Paul Newman) to get it done. It's a predecessor to movies like Ocean's Eleven (and Brad Pitt is almost identical to this era Redford!) and maybe suffers a little bit because the story is a bit too easy to follow and predict, even though there are a bunch of narratives layered on top of one another. But it still stands up as an incredibly enjoyable watch and definitely one I'd recommend friends to watch. 7/10
