Xmen - Dark Pheonix 7/10

 

Got terrible reviews, but I am unsure why to be honest. Seemed like a typical Xmen movie to me? I struggled to work out timelines in some instances, but that was probably just me.

Saw a preview of Yesterday the other night.

 

Good movie - quite cute. Good music (so long as you like the songs of Lennon and McCartney).

 

7.5/10

I dunno, I think people are overly critical. Suspension of disbelief is a pre-requisite of watching these movies surely?

 

The nit picking of some of the these movies makes me think that the people attending are documenatry fans!

Last Man on the Moon on NF - Gene Cernan. Nothing earth-shattering in terms of presentation but for a teenager from the 1960's who lived and breathed the Gemini and Apollo missions, this is magic. Turn up the volume if you've got HT because the sound effects are pretty good. 8/10.

The Green Book

9/10 - Excellent movie I thought. Won’t say much as the trailer will either draw you in or not.

Iron Sky - Knew it was going to be bad before watching (Nazi's on the moon) - It was so bad it had to be watched ;) They actually appeared to have had a decent budget as most of the FX etc were quite nicely done and costumes etc. 

 

7/10 for the corniness of it all - Im going to watch the follow up this week (Hitler riding a TRex with Nazis living in the center of the earth!)

I was off sick last week so had a crack at John Wick on Netflix to see what all the fuss was about after a niece raved about #3.

 

Biggest waste of 2 hours in my life. I'm not even going to bother giving it 0/10.

 

But then in my dopey "I don't want to get off the couch" state I decided to watch John Wick 2.

 

I wont be looking out for #3 I can tell you.

Watched a couple of movies recently:

 

XMen - Dark Phoenix: 6.5/10

 

Despite the poor reviews, I didn't think this was too bad.  It certainly didn't deserve the panning it seemed to have got.  After Days of Future Past I think I may have been ruined for XMen films, but Dark Phoenix was head and shoulders over the hot mess that was The Last Stand (which I re-watched last year, and it was as bad as I remember).  Sure, it was far from a "great" film, and there are plenty of holes you can pick in it, but it was an entertaining couple of hours.

 

Men in Black International - 5/10

 

I didn't actually plan to see this film, but I had an afternoon off, and I was a week early for Spiderman: Far From Home, so I decided to take a punt on this.  The original MiB film was good, the second less so (and I never watched MiB3.  But there's less to recommend this reboot.  The cast was okay - Chris Hemsworth is watchable, and Tessa Thompson is okay as the "newbie" agent, but it didn't really gel, and the "twist" (such as it was) was spotted a mile off, five minutes into the film.  It felt like a by-the-numbers kind of film.  Fairly harmless, but nothing to get excited about.
