This has gotten really out of hand. I mean, it’s just gotten silly, right? I’ve not posted a weekly update for months, and still have movies from February that haven’t been covered, and I can’t take it any more. So what I’ve gone and done is written a mini review for every damn movie I’ve seen in the past 5 months and stacked them all in this post. That’s 70 movies, by the way. Read it, don’t read it, I don’t mind, just know that my brain is a little less stressed over it.
Howard the Duck (1986) Awful, bizarre, stupid movie. Won Movie of the Month back in February (thanks Vern!). Just atrocious. Listen to the podcast on it here. Choose Life 2/10
The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) Recorded a commentary for the LAMB. Still really enjoy this film, best Jurassic sequel. Choose Film 8/10
John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) Often better than the first, but with a weaker overall plot. Unsatisfying conclusion, but so much entertainment and fun before it that I don’t mind. Loved the Reeves vs Common silencer shoot-out. Looking forward to buying this and watching again. Choose Film 8/10
Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) Great, but occasionally uncomfortable. Full review here. Choose Film 8/10
Deadpool (2016) Remains very entertaining. Ryan Reynolds was made for this role. Looking forward to the sequel. Choose Film 8/10
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) If not my favourite Wes Anderson movie, it’s certainly in the running. Love the prison break and ski chase, and the fate of Goldblum’s fingers. Choose Film 9/10
The Fugitive (1993) Hadn’t seen it for ages. It hadn’t aged as well as I’d have liked, but is still a solid action thriller. Choose Film 7/10
Finding Dory (2016) I was originally a bit underwhelmed by this Pixar sequel, but the more times I watch it the more I find to enjoy. Ty Burrell’s Bailey is a delight. Choose Film 8/10
Timecrimes (2007) Movie of the Month winner over at the LAMB for March (thanks Jason!). So much better than Howard the Duck. Easily one of the best first-time-watches this year, but then it helps that I love time travel movies. Intricate but not overly complex so it can be fully understood in one sitting. Listen to the podcast on it here. Choose Film 9/10
Kong: Skull Island (2017) I’m a fan of Kong in general and most of the actors involved (John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell, Marc Evan Jackson, John Ortiz, John C. Reilly), and I really enjoyed this. It’s not perfect – with such a big cast, many actors are wasted and get very little to do) but it’s still a great action movie and a nice additional to the Godzilla/Kong universe they’re building. Hear me talk about it on Out Now With Aaron and Abe here. Choose Film 8/10
Logan (2017) Easily the best Wolverine movie, and also easily the smallest, which allowed for a greater focus on the unusual family unit and their National Lampoon’s Vacation-type adventure. Brutal, gory and gritty, it’s a little long but otherwise fantastic. Sir Patrick Stewart should receive accolades, but probably won’t. Choose Film 8/10
La Belle et La Bete (1946) Re-watched for a remake-a-palooza Lambcast (listen here), you can read my full review here. I don’t love this version, but it’s certainly interesting and innovative in terms of production design. Choose Life 6/10
Beauty and the Beast (1991) Maybe the greatest animated Disney movie ever? I always used to say that was The Lion King, which is still in the top two, but Beauty and the Beast may have just pipped it to the post. It’s all about Gaston. Choose Film 10/10
Beauty and the Beast (2017) Unnecessary, unwelcome and uninteresting. It expands on details I don’t care about and changed things I love. Emma Watson seemed the perfect casting but looks bored and is autotuned beyond recognition. I love Kevin Kline, Luke Evans is terrific as Gaston and Josh Gad is decent as LeFou, but the CGI on the living furniture means even the great Ewan McGregor, Sir Ian McKellen, Stanley Tucci and Emma Thompson come off more creepy and annoying than endearing. Choose Life 4/10
White Heat (1949) Watched as part of MovieRob‘s Prison Movies blogathon. Full review here. Choose Film 8/10
Jurassic Park III (2001) Another movie commentary for the LAMB. On the scatter graph depicting the movies I’ve seen the most but like the least, this gets the highest score given I’ve seen it so damn many times, and have grown to loathe it more with every viewing. “Alan!” Choose Life 4/10
The Edge of Seventeen (2016) Very solid coming-of-age high school movie that depicts just how much kids over-dramatise stuff that in the long term is really quite trivial. Hailee Steinfeld is very good as the lead, but as usual it’s the adult cast – in this case Woody Harrelson’s acerbic teacher/confidante – who really steal the show. Choose Film 7/10
I, Daniel Blake (2016) Utterly heartbreaking, aggravating movie that really opened my eyes to a side of life I’ve been fortunate enough to evade so far. A must watch for everyone, especially politicians. Choose Film 9/10
Dreamgirls (2006) We went to see the stage show, and Aisha couldn’t stop singing the songs so we had to watch the movie again. The show was fine – Amber Riley played Effie, and to be honest I was a little disappointed by her performance given all the hype about it, plus it annoys me that she received the final standing ovation applause given she isn’t the lead – but the film is much better, which is no surprise given the extra production budget. I pretty much always prefer pre-recorded, polished versions to live shows though, so I’m biased. Choose Film 7/10
A Life Less Ordinary (1997) Watched in preparation for a Danny Boyle retrospective Lambcast, which you can listen to here. Justifiably one of Boyle’s least discussed movies, as it’s tonally all over the place – part comedy, romance, fantasy, thriller, with a musical number thrown in for good measure. A tremendous, Coen-esque cast (Ewan McGregor, Cameron Diaz, Delroy Lindo, Holly Hunter, Ian Holm, Ian McShane, Dan Hedaya, Stanley Tucci, Tony Shalhoub, Timothy Olyphant) cannot save this disappointing oddity. Choose Life 4/10
127 Hours (2010) I’m not a big James Franco fan, so watching him as the only character on screen for almost an entire movie is not my idea of a good time. I find his character very abrasive and unlikeable – I think that’s at least the point, so credit where it’s due – and despite lasting only just over 90 minutes I still get bored with the situation. It’s gruelling at times – again intentionally – and the bone cracking and tendon snapping is painful to even think about, so well done to Danny Boyle for effectively realising that on screen, I just never intend to go through it again. Choose Life 6/10
Free Fire (2017) I loved this movie, and will be re-watching it writing a full review for Blueprint: Review soon. I hope I still love it. Choose Film 9/10
Grabbers (2012) A lot of fun. An Irish town gets invaded by aliens, and the townsfolk discover their best chance of survival is to get drunk, as alcohol is poisonous to the attackers. Hilarity ensues. I’ve liked Richard Coyle since Coupling, and I appreciated how the film takes a fairly entertaining yet ridiculous premise and is able to build a coherent, dramatic story around it whilst still having fun. More people should talk about this movie. Choose Film 7/10
Trance (2013) I’d owned this on DVD for years and never gotten around to it. James McAvoy is involved in an art heist, but loses his memory of where he hid the stolen art, so his boss Vincent Cassel hires hypno-therapist Rosario Dawson to get the information out of him. It’s a very twisty-turny narrative that’s a bit more predictable than it thinks, but is still a decent watch. Perhaps the only film in which Rosario Dawson’s pubic hair is a key plot point. Choose Life 6/10
28 Days Later (2001) I don’t love this movie as much as most people. In fact this is I think the only time I’ve gotten through it in one sitting, as at the exact halfway point, once a new group of people is introduced, everything gets a heck of a lot duller. That being said everything up until that point is so flipping good that this is a must-see regardless. Choose Film 7/10
The Beach (2000) Oof. Dull, preachy, misjudged and just plain boring. Choose Life 4/10
Sunshine (2007) Same as with 28 Days Later, there’s a point at which Sunshine stops being amazing and becomes just plain great. Phenomenal cast though, and my word does this film look stunning. Choose Film 8/10
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004) Hadn’t seen this for a while and since Grand Budapest Hotel Aisha has been interested in other Wes Anderson movies. It’s not my favourite – I think it kind of tales of towards the end and gets a bit too navel-gazey – but I’ll watch Bill Murray (and in fact most of this cast) in anything, the soundtrack and production design are fantastic, and it’s still a very funny and enjoyable film. Choose Film 7/10
Dirty Harry (1971) This year’s Franchise-special Movie of the Month for the LAMB was Dirty Harry (thanks Richard!), of which I’d only seen the first one before (old review here). It’s still solid. Listen to the podcast here. Choose Film 7/10
Magnum Force (1973) The best of the franchise, I think. Hal Holbrook is great as Harry’s boss, the plot was gripping, overall very good. Choose Film 8/10
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Still half a great find-the-monsters movie, half a depressing, overly dark repressed child film. The two halves don’t go together, and I worry about the direction of this spin-off franchise. I kind of wish David Yates wasn’t directing these. Still, all the fantastic creature stuff is terrific. Choose Film 6/10
The Enforcer (1976) Callahan takes on equal rights and political correctness when he is sidled with that most horrendous and unthinkable of horrors – a female partner! Very dated throughout, and the plot is a little dull. Feel free to skip this one. Choose Life 5/10
Sudden Impact (1983) I really liked this one, as it makes no attempt to hide how the highest crime numbers are wherever Harry is at any given time. His favourite diner is held up during his morning coffee run, and when he is sent to the small town of San Paulo a car chase breaks out the second he arrives, and involves the commandeering of an old folks’ home bus. The franchise begins it’s turn into a slasher movie with a group of criminals being hunted down one by one, culminating in a terrific carnival climax. A lot of fun. Choose Film 7/10
The Dead Pool (1988) Easily the worst in the series. A predetermined list of celebrities start dying, and Harry Callahan’s name is further down the list. A silly slasher without any interesting deaths except for a remote control car sequence that earns most of the praise, but loses a great deal due to the ridiculousness of the second remote control car sequence. Only worth watching for an early Jim Carrey performance, and given he’s not in much of the film you can stop watching once he’s off screen. Choose Life 3/10
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Still likes it. Still eager to see what other side stories they find in Star Wars. Choose Film 8/10
The Fast and the Furious (2001) Again for another Lambcast franchise show (listen to it here). Prior to this batch of watching I’d only seen parts five through seven, and wasn’t looking forward to the rest. Turns out none of them are outright terrible, but not many of them are recommendable either. The first one is a bit dull, especially given it took Point Break, which I’m not a fan of, and remade it with nothing but cars, which I hate. Choose Life 4/10
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) Tyreese Gibson is, for me, the most annoying part of this franchise, and this is where we meet him and he gets the most screentime of all the films. Thus, worse score. Choose Life 3/10
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) The worst film in the franchise. Lucas Black is awful even when not talking, and even worse when he is due to that horrendous accent of his (he pronounces drift with about thirteen “i”s). It’s boring, has more annoying characters (Bow Wow, yay) and a stupid, over-long finale. Choose Life 2/109
Fast & Furious (2009) The point at which I’d heard the films start to get decent, or at least more watchable, and I can confirm this is correct. I enjoy team-based heist movies, which is exactly what these become, so if you made them less about cars and cast better actors with a better overall script then we’d have something to work with. This one isn’t bad at all, in fact there are some great action sequences, but all the stuff with the border tunnels gets a bit repetitive. Choose Film 5/10
Fast Five (2011) Maybe the best in the franchise, this took the groundwork set up in four and expanded it with the greatest hits of the franchise’s characters, plus Roman Pearce. The start of the truly silly, implausible, physics-defying stunts – dragging a giant safe around a city, for instance – part in a ridiculously entertaining way. Plus they brought The Rock in, and he’s great. Choose Film 7/10
Fast & Furious 6 (2013) More of the same, but bigger, louder and partially in England, with Luke Evans and his team of evil versions of Dom’s crew. The plane finale goes on forever, but is fun. Full review here. Choose Film 6/10
Furious 7 (2015) Still more, but we finally get the series’ best villain in Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw. I’ll watch Statham in anything, and his opening scene, set in a hospital he’s single-handedly torn apart, is one of the highlights of the whole saga. Paul Walker’s tragic demise impacted the third act filming to an undeniable extent, but they made the best of a bad situation. I’d have liked more Tony Jaa, and less ogling of Nathalie Emmanuel. Choose Film 6/10
Swiss Army Man (2016) I wanted this to be great. The premise – a stranded, suicidal castaway (Paul Dano) discovers a magic corpse (Daniel Radcliffe) as he tries to kill himself, and attempts to use its amazing abilities to save himself – is loony and I couldn’t wait to see the directions it was taken in, but it didn’t quite go far enough and the ending was very unsatisfying. That being said the performances were both fantastic, there’s a scene all about Jurassic Park, and the corpse has a magic boner compass. Choose Life 7/10
Fast & Furious 8 / The Fate of the Furious (2017) More of the same, again, but still a great deal of fun. Statham is kind of part of them team, which makes me happy, as do the rumours of a spin-off starring him and The Rock, which makes sense as they both easily overshadow Vin Diesel in terms of acting ability, charisma and my desire to see them in anything ever again. Statham’s scene on the airplane may well be my scene of the year. Choose Film 6/10
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) First time I saw this I loved it. Second time I just liked it. Third time I was mostly bored. Fourth time, this time, and I’m back to loving it again. The key it seems is to allow enough time to pass for the jokes to not be so fresh in my mind. Choose Film 9/10
Central Intelligence (2016) Poor. Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart have good chemistry, but the script doesn’t know what to do with either of them, especially Johnson. It’s a rare film where the tagline is better than the movie and here that is very much the case (Saving the world takes a little Hart and a big Johnson). Choose Life 3/10
The Monster Squad (1987) Watched on a whim. I’ve heard good things, and I agree with them. One of the better 80s movies about a bunch of outsider kids on an adventure (it’s superior to The Goonies and Stand By Me), this benefits from a cavalcade of iconic horror monsters and a great performance from Tom Noonan as Frankenstein’s Monster. I’m shocked this hasn’t been remade yet. Choose Film 7/10
The Social Network (2010) One of the only David Fincher films I’d never seen in entirety (I fell asleep first time around, still haven’t watched Alien³ yet either) this is far from my favourite. I find the whole thing quite dry, even with an Aaron Sorkin script. I hope to write a full review soon. Choose Film 7/10
My Cousin Vinny (1992) Fantastic. It was discussed on a recent Lambcast so I had to dig it out and give it another shot, and it holds up wonderfully. Pesci and Tomei are a lot of fun, and even Aisha enjoyed it, which is unusual for a film that’s more than 10 years old. Choose Film 8/10
Train to Busan (2016) I’d heard a lot of hype, and it lived up to it. Zombie movies are very much within my wheelhouse, and setting one on and around the single movie location of a train was a fantastic idea. Several times I thought so much had happened that surely the film’s end was in sight, only for more entertaining set pieces to occur. Terrific character development into pro- and antagonists, and the unexpected nature of many deaths keeps you on edge throughout as to who will be offed next. Highly recommended. Choose Film 9/10
A Few Good Men (1992) Another one I wanted to watch again, and which Aisha highly enjoyed too. Again, I hope to write a full review soon. Choose Film 9/10
Passengers (2016) I’d say it was disappointing, but I never expected this to be good, and in fact it lived up to every single expectation, including every moment of the plot. Predictable and trite, I found it impossible to get past how much of a monster the central character is, even though he’s played by Chris Pratt. Choose Life 5/10
The Seventh Seal (1957) Ingmar Bergman, it turns out, is not my favourite film-maker. In fact he’s making a good case for himself to be amongst my most hated. Expect a full, not overly positive review soon. Choose Life 4/10
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) A particularly odious cinema patron did his best to ruin my movie screening by talking (and belching) right behind me throughout the majority of the film, but I still managed to enjoy myself. It’s not as good as the first one, which would be difficult, but Kurt Russell is an excellent addition, Michael Rooker gets so much to do and does it really damn well, there’s a great villain to add to Marvel’s otherwise mostly lacklustre roster, and the soundtrack is even better than part one. Choose Film 7/10
Alien: Covenant (2017) It’s trying to be both a Prometheus sequel and an Alien prequel, and ended up being the worst parts of both. It’s essentially an Alien remake but with couples, and pretending they never made it off the egg planet. Fassbender is great in a dual role but everyone else either doesn’t get much to do or is Danny McBride and therefore annoying. Choose Life 5/10
School of Rock (2003) Another movie of the month (thanks Rebecca!), and another movie I adore. Full review here. Choose Film 8/10
Jurassic World (2015) Sadly I wasn’t able to join the LAMB commentary for this one, but I watched it anyway. I like it, but it’s lost the new-movie sheen that had me including it in my top 10 of that year. I’ll keep watching it though. Choose Film 7/10
Lion (2016) The start of my progress through the Best Picture nominees I missed in theatres (at this point I’d only seen Arrival and Hell Or High Water). I loved Lion, can completely understand it’s nomination but not why so many people dismissed it from the running. It’s terrific all round, with great performances from everyone and an emotionally draining pay-off. Choose Film 8/10
Sing (2016) Meh. It’s fine I guess, a little better than expected, but why you’d watch this when Zootropolis is available I’ll never know. Stacked cast though. Choose Life 5/10
Manchester by the Sea (2016) The fact that this was considered more likely to win than Lion is beyond me. I found it dull and aimless, a character study with little character or study. Casey Affleck is fine I guess, in that I don’t mind he was nominated for Best Actor, but how he won I’ll never know. If this makes it onto the 1001 List later this year I’ll lose my mind. Choose Life 6/10
Sully (2016) I can understand why someone would see the news story of the plane full of passengers safely landing on the Hudson river after a dual-engine bird-strike and think “Someone should make a movie out of this!” What I can’t understand is how, after digging closely into what happened and the aftermath, no-one realised that there really isn’t enough material to make a compelling movie that’s only 96 minutes long. Tom Hanks is good, Aaron Eckhart is fun and Laura Linney is wasted, just like my time was. Choose Life 5/10
Wonder Woman (2017) Great, but not as phenomenally genre-defining as some critics seem to think. The opening scenes of Amazonian training on Themiscura are terrific, and the war-action is great too, but the third act goes a bit too CGI smashy-smashy for my liking. Gal Gadot is very good and handles the action and comedic beats very well, with Chris Pine in fine form too, but not enough was made of the supporting cast, and David Thewlis role is so damn obvious from his first second on screen. Choose Film 7/10
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Watching Wonder Woman mostly made me want to watch this again (and Thor, but I didn’t have access to that). I didn’t rate Cap the first time around, but now I’ve had a few more movies for him to settle into the character going back it worked a lot better than I recalled. I think I was always thrown by the musical number, but now it makes more sense to me. I’m thinking The Winter Soldier deserves a re-appraisal now too. Choose Film 8/10
La La Land (2016) I anticipate this being on the 1001 List soon, so I hope to get a review up in the near future. I didn’t love it, but having had time to dwell on the film it has risen in my opinions, and I’ve re-watched the opening number many times since. Choose Film 7/10
The Mummy (2017) The kick-off to Universal’s supposed Dark Universe, I can only hope the subsequent films hold together a little better. Tom Cruise is good, Russell Crowe is pretty great as Jekyll/Hyde, Sofia Boutella plays a fantastic but underused Mummy and Jake Johnson is entertaining, but everyone else is there solely to deliver exposition or need saving. The ending is beyond aggravating and I have so many questions about the plot, but no real interest in hearing the answers or seeing more movies. Choose Life 5/10
The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) Another movie of the month (thanks Aaron!). Full review here, and podcast link here. Choose Film 7/10
Moonlight (2016) There’s a 100% chance of this being added to the 1001 List, so I’ve already started a review. Choose Film 8/10
Blade Runner (1982) Expect a full review soon. I didn’t like it as much as I should, still trying to work out why. Choose Life 5/10
Baby Driver (2017) It’s Edgar Wright, so I’ll be reviewing it soon. Overall I really liked it, but it’s far from his best movie. That being said I’ve been listening to the soundtrack throughout this entire writing session. Choose Film 8/10
The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Still this year’s best movie. I can’t see anything topping it but of course I hope something does. Choose Film 10/10
