Saw Assault on Precinct 13 the other night. Very watchable relative to its budget, and pleasing soundtrack of course, which is all I'd previously been aware of.

If it's the John Carpenter original, then it's a superb film and I do believe it's his film score too.

Beasts of No Nation.. A difficult subject, but very well handled. Violent at times, but thought provoking and harrowing.

Anyone seen the German film "Look Who's Back" ("Er ist wieder da")? It's pretty dark, but really funny (if you like that kind of humour) and I think has some interesting points to make. It's basically "what if Hitler came back in the present day and what would he do" and while they milk it (Hitler in incongruous situations etc.), it's well worth watching.

I started reading the book and it was trash. Not sure if it was just a bad translation (assuming that it was German originally) but yeah... rubbish!

Just seen Bohemian Rhapsody.
Superb biopic.
Rami Malek was unbelievable, the music was great the choreography first class and although they took a few liberties with the timeline, the Live Aid climax was spot on.
If you like Queen or music biopics you will love it

A lot of the criticism of the book came about because it was a written in a deliberate pastiche of Hitler's writing style (i.e. quite clunky prose) and that made it difficult to read, which is an understandable criticism to be honest. I think the film sidesteps that by treating Hitler more as a documentary subject, there's no real narrative voice at all.

Watched two remake this week.
Widows, a reimagining of the Linda LaPlant classic.
Very well made, Chicago set drama tackling racism, sexism and still packing a great deal of story and action.
The editing was genius.
Also watched the remake of Papillon.
Probably didn't need remaking but the two leads were excellent.
Rami Malek really is a very versatile actor.

Should have made it clearer that I too recommend it. Have you seen his follow-up Upstream Color? I still haven't watched it myself but it's supposed to be even better.

Not yet, but I'm going to watch it soon, it's near the top of my list (every time I get recommended a film, or read about a film that sounds interesting, it goes onto the list, but to be honest it's getting a bit out of hand now, as for each one I tick off, I add five more). I'll need to live to about 150 to watch them all and I don't think that's going to happen.

I'd barely heard of her before, but she was a definite plus-point.

Watched Arrival. It was alright. It was a bit dreary in terms of the colour pallete, very un sci-fi like. And it went a bit weird in the end in the same way Interstellar did where it strays more into the fi than the sci. Still worth the watch. Amy Adams is always good.

Then I watched Split which was excellent. A return to form for M. Night Shamalamadingdong or however you spell it. McEvoy does a great job switching between the personalities and the lead actress is a good find. It too strays a bit further than you might think in the final third but it really works.

I liked Split too until the film somehow aligned itself to Unbreakable.
I thought Arrival was excellent especially on second viewing.
I do like a film that asks you suspend belief in a good way.
One of my favourite films that does this is the Prestige

Agreed - superb. Rami Malek's portrayal was uncanny. Gwilym Lee was so like Brian May too (mannerisms, voice, facial expressions) that it felt more like a fly-on-the-wall documentary at times. Found out an interesting fact: Mike Myers was the one who pushed for Bohemian Rhapsody in the memorable headbanging-in-the-car scene in Wayne's World: the director wanted Guns N' Roses. Makes MM's part as Ray Foster getting it wrong all the more of a dig at the music business.

I found that this was one of those films that tries to get people to think "Wow, that was amazing, so profound" when really it was just pretentious and up its own arse.

Haha, ever the contrarian! But that's all part of your charm. I enjoyed "Arrival", anyway. I didn't find it especially profound but it was quite thoughtful as mainstream Hollywood films go.

Anyone seen "Predestination"? It's another relatively low-budget film (although not as low-budget as "Primer", obviously) that deals with time travel, but in a completely different way. To begin with, it seemed as though it was going to be a bit slow, but the story becomes really compelling and I ended up enjoying it a lot.

Very clever film, Ethan Hunt always good value.
Like the Cerberus reference.

Whilst we are talking about low tech Sci Fi.
I can recommend Time Lapse from a few years back.

Haha, excellent. Isn't Ethan Hunt the name of Tom Cruise's character in the Mission Impossible films? Speaking of which, I've only seen a couple of those but they're always quite entertaining.

Predictive text eh. If only there was some way of examining a post before submitting it (say, by looking at it with your eyes) to confirm that what it says is what you actually meant.

Not a film but a documentary.
Just finished watching Three Identical Strangers, a fascinating and shocking story about reunited triplets and their history.
Truth really is stranger than fiction.

Thor Ragnarok. How did this get so much praise? I thought it was tremendously boring. Getting tired of the Marvel cinematic universe to be honest.

Only marvel films I enjoy are the ones that don't take themselves too seriously like Deadpool and Venom

After watching a recording of his stand up, I decided to watch Click for the umpteenth time.
It is a perfect blend of comedy and tragedy
Nobody could watch the scene with Henry Winkler near the end and not be moved to tears. ( The gauntlet is thrown Gevin )

I'm just crying at the thought of the Fonz.

I've read your post three times now and I still can't find where in it you say whose stand-up you're talking about. Or are we meant to just know?

I guess if you'd seen Click the Movie starring Adam Sandler you would have probably guessed , especially if you was also aware that Henry Winkler and other male actors in the film do not have a stand up comedy background I am aware of.
But to recap, I watched the latest Adam Sandler stand up comedy film (won't say DVD as I watched on Netflix ).
This was quite funny although there was probably too many comedy songs for my liking.
Nevertheless I decided to watch Click for two reasons.
The obvious association with the stand up show I watched and to test my theory that the older you get, the more likely you are to cry at a film.
Cried like a baby at the previously mentioned scene.
Also watched a thirty second clip of the original Dumbo on YouTube and cried at that too.
