Watched The Incredibles with my daughters, and they loved it.

 

Now watching Shrek, and the Mrs has just clicked on Lord Farquaad... LMFAO

Watched The Last Diamond (French with English subtitles). Pretty interesting story. The option was Heist and we think we got the good one.

Watched 'Life' (2017) starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds. It was a kind of combination of Alien and Gravity with a hint of Sunshine and The Mist. Very tense, very good, very weird. Recommended.

War for the Planet of the Apes.

 

Amazing. Woody Harrelson is an excellent actor, but the whole movie is awesome. 9/10

Spotlight. Good movie, especially if you are in the mood for a good investigative drama.

War for the Planet of the Apes.

 

Not a lot of substance to the story for the 2 hours 20 mins running time, a little too sentimental, but a good watch nonetheless. Last third is best.

Crappy day so off to the movies with the kids to watch Despicable Me 3. Entertaining enough for 90 minutes, particularly as all the tickets were cheap for the school holidays. 6/10.

Spiderman Homecoming.

The best Spidey outing yet by miles. Why is Spiderman stuck in an adolescent time warp though? He never seems to be doing anything but learning how to be Spiderman. How about a film where he actually has mastery of his powers?

He looks like he has them in every other movie. I didn't like homecoming as much and a lot of it was because of the adolescence and lack of his powers. 

 

The prior one where he goes against electro, he had them pretty good then!

I'm not sure. He never seems like the self confident kicker of bad guy butt that he does in the comics. He's always got woman trouble and I'm surprised he's not concerned about acne...!

War for the Planet of the Apes - Excellent. Far more thoughtful and character driven than I was expecting (something I felt the the previous instalment lacked), but still with the right amount of action without it being over the top. They also managed to put in enough light/comedic moments to offset some of the much darker content. I never give a perfect 10 to a movie, because I don't believe anything is perfect - but this was really close. 9.5/10

Watched The Handmaids Tale, it was a struggle. It doesn't compare to the TV show at all.

If you are a fan of the TV show I wouldn't bother with the movie. It's very dated and very average will give it a 5/10.

Dunkirk, yesterday.
Very gritty, brilliant sound stage and cinematography. An interwoven storylines that take a bit to get your head around. Not much character development due to nonstop action. Felt drained after 2 hours but an excellent watch.
8/10.

Dunkirk may be one of my favourite movies of all time.

 

The almost complete lack of dialogue or character development really lends itself to the "Long stretches of boredom, punctuated by moments of sheer terror" idea of war.

 

 

 

Even the small moments of victory the British had were almost immediately followed up by another German attack and the loss of more British soldiers, the movie had no time to linger on patriotism or glory in war. 

 

I came out of this movie feeling drained, not even really entertained and yet this is now cemented as one of the most important moments of film in my life.
