Thought it was pretty funny how loads of Last Jedi crybabies bombarded IMDb with 0 / 10 votes for Knives Out but unfortunately for them it's so good that it's now rating at 8.1 currently.

They're perfectly reasonable reviews...

Why defenders of this film can't understand simple fact: people JUST get tired from unnecessary POLITICS in EVERY mediocre entertaining film. And this guy have his 1/10 not for Last Jedi, but for this cheap political pamphlet with direct offense to American majority, like we don't have already infamous Red Hollywood, and know then go again. I am from country with socialistic regime and this rhetorics will lead only to oppression of some classes.

I walked into the sitting room after reading my daughter Oi! Frog, Oi! Cat, Oi! Dog and Oi! Duck Billed Playpus for bedtime and the missus was engrossed in Terminator 2, which I wasn’t expecting, beca

My poor missus had to put up with me kicking off over the whole debacle when I walked in the door last night after it. The poor woman. She was only about to get into bed and had to deal with a 39 year

Speaking of Jack Lemmon, my brother once worked at the Box Office in The Strand theatre.  Jack Lemmon was performing in a play there, he seemed down to earth but kept himself to himself.  Out of respe

I watched Heist the other night. The 2015 one with Robert De Niro playing a vaping money launderer, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Batista hijacking a bus. It was the same bloke who director Final Score earlier this year, which makes sense as this was also both surreal and stupid but strangely enjoyable in equal measures.

Spoiler for Final Score:-

Doesn't feature anything as bizarre as Tony Cottee getting shot though.

The Good Liar is extremely predictable but also a good time, mainly through Ian McKellen saying cunt a lot. Worth a look, especially if it ends up on Netflix.

I thought the what was predictable, but not the why.  A nice cup of tea stay indoors on a wet October Sunday afternoon film.  Also, Helen Mirren ❤️

Having seen The Irishman in the cinema, I watched it yesterday at home and It was a different experience for sure but worked very well.

The thing that got me was just the overriding sense of melancholy in the film. Which is added to by the ages of the main three (and Keitel) in the film. It was fantastic to see Pacino back to his blazing best. Pesci is wonderful as ever in a very different roles and DeNiro is superb in a really understated and sad performance. He shows such little emotion at times, but also shows everything.

Great film, and I'm glad Netflix is around to give Martin Scorsese the money to do films like that

The Irishman was fucking brilliant. I do wish all this Marvel discussion nonsense hadn't come up, as it's created some right daft comparisons. Endgame absolutely destroyed me emotionally but that was a franchise I've followed for years (and even longer as a kid with the comics) and it was a perfect cinematic experience. The Irishman is a quality piece of film all round and completely different on every level. If anything, both are a great reminder of how diverse cinema can be.

Not had a chance to see The Irishman yet (don't seem to have 3 1/2 kid free hours to watch it), but I echo what you say about Endgame and it being a perfect cinematic experience. But I can't compare it to something like, say Knives Out. Which is going to be fighting at the top of my end of year list. You can enjoy films on different levels and for completely different reasons and I don't think the comparisons are fair. It's not like supporting a football team, you can enjoy all types of films from art house to comic book in my opinion and they are all pieces of art for different reasons.

But you can support a football team, and still enjoy watching other teams play :)

Empire are doing another of their readers' polls (following on from that 'one film per year for the last 30 years' one) - this one is your top 20 films of the 21st century so far.

I managed to come up with a list that covers a lot of bases, and while I'm not that bothered to see the results, it was a fun exercise figuring out what mine would be.
