The Vanished – Don’t do it to yizzerselves. Seriously. This is up/down there with Open Water in amongst the worst movies I have ever, ever seen. It doesn’t make any sense, whatsoever, at any stage.
I like Tom Jane, I really do, and I thought I could get by on him alone, but it’s poxy, and he’s poxy in it.
Anne Heche has aged well, in fairness as has Jason Patric. That’s really the only positives I can bestow on it.

Bill and Ted Face the Music – As someone who was such a huge Bill and Ted fan growing up, I was genuinely truly excited for this, if for nothing else other than to see the boys back, but it was awful, and in particular, the final third was desperate. And it legitimately pains me to say that.

I don’t want Bill and Teds’ daughters to save the world/universe/time.

 I want it to be Bill and Ted. The way I was brought up thinking it would be.

.                                        Alex Winter was great though, but everyone else looked bored and confused.

6 is brilliant, but 5 has one of my favourite details - the guy playing Tommy in it was a born again Christian, and apparently only felt comfortable doing it when he realised that evil was punished in

I'll tell you why he did the film but I'm warning you, the answer is the blackest comedy of 2020

Bill & Ted Face The Music - The weakest of the three? Probably. But I thought it was a nice little nostalgia trip which was good until the very abrupt end. Really odd choice that. But otherwise, an easy 90 minute watch.

My Spy:

This would have been perfect material for any of you dad's to watch with the kids. Suitable and fun for the youngsters, and Big Dave being all kinds of great for the adults to enjoy. 

Couldn't decide what to watch a couple of nights ago with the brother, but we noticed Dave was in this and the discussion ended and on it went. I thought it was great craic. Big Dave Bautista has mastered being a nerd, a ladies man, a hard man, a comedian and a social activist, all in one big lovable bundle. I'll watch anything with him in it. Except I haven't gotten brave enough to watch the Escape Plan sequels yet. Should I?

I love the Bill and Ted films and I thought the new one was great. It was adorable with some really funny bits and completely felt like a B&T film to me, Keanu and Alex looked amazing. I didn't think I'd be into the idea of having their kids in prominent roles but I found them really appealing. 

I like B&T so much I wanted to pay for it but as far as I could tell that wasn't possible in The UK which seems silly as it made torrenting it impossible to resist.

Yep. The UK release is mid September (I believe it is being distributed by Warners here rather than MGM) as I was happy to pay for it as well. But it still wasn't confirmed if it would be same day cinema and VOD here either. I'll just buy the blu ray when it's announced.

Red Lights - Good Jaysus, what happened with that ending? Which, in turn meant, what happened with the whole film?
I actually went to me pit in a huff over that and started Googling "Red Lights Ending Explained" in case I missed something, and that led to me Googling "Sigourney Weaver nude". See how this shite starts? And me trying to reinvent myself and grow up.

Think I'll watch Upgrade tonight, as it's just incredible.

Mulan - Disney’s best live action remake by a country mile. Mainly because they don’t attempt to remake the cartoon. And the shit dragon sidekick and songs were all dropped. This is a bloodless Crouching Tiger alike. Was very surprised by it. Well worth a watch.

I'm Thinking Of Ending Things

Fan-fucking-tastic. Everything I want from a Kaufman film to be honest, and the whole cast are superb, with some excruciating scenes. Thewlis is great, but Jessie Buckley steals it and quite frankly, can spit in my mouth.

Muriel's Wedding

Was reminded when watching the former that I re-watched this last week. This was one of two films we had at secondary school for when there was no sub/teacher couldn't be arsed (The other was Strictly Ballroom weirdly enough), and so I've seen this a stupid amount of times, and it's still so bloody charming and Toni Collette is a treasure. Loved every second of it.

The Taking of Beverly Hills (nefarious means - it's also on Prime rental)

If I'd have seen this 20-odd years ago, when I should have done, it may well be one of my favourite films by now. Just a big, stupid, action film with loads of explosions and quality character actors and I fucking loved it.

Gretel & Hansel (nefarious means)

Really atmospheric and self-contained horror film, and a nice spin on the fairytale. No jump scares either, which is always a huge bonus. And 87 minutes!

13 Going on 30 (Prime)

Why did nobody tell me this was so good? Has Jennifer Garner ever produced a better performance than this? And how much more can I fancy Judy Greer?

I’m thinking of ending things. 
You know how authors finish another authors unfinished works or continue another authors characters in the style of the original? A bit like the new Bond books? This is a film David Lynch couldn’t be arsed to make. Great performances and some nice scenes but ultimately not very good.

Love, Guaranteed

I am convinced that this has to be a money laundering/tax dodge scheme for Netflix.

I can get behind the theory that some people specifically got the streaming service for The Irishman or Narcos or Money Heist etc (at a stretch), but there is no reason for this film to exist whatsoever. 

What is the point of it? It will never make a profit and I doubt people are falling over themselves to sign up to see Damon Wayans Jr sue a dating app because he hasn't found love. 

But then I watched it, so who's the bigger idiot here? Rachael Leigh Cook is still lovely, so there is that. I have seen worse films, but I don't know if I've ever seen a more pointless one.

The Lost Boys

For one reason or another, I had never seen this. Fucking 11/10.

Gave Venom a watch. First ten minutes I k ew I'd hate it. His girlfriend lives in the house from Mrs Doubtfire. It is to the Spider-Man franchise what the Halle Berry Catwoman movie was to the Batman franchise.
