    Antwone Fisher-6/10

    An interesting enough story that's supposed to be based on truth, however some characters are fictitious and they make sure we know about it before the main title. It's a well acted movie but underwhelming........

    The thirteenth floor 7.5-7.98989898/10 maybe even an 8.

    Better than the matrix. Liked the premise, it seems more a probably outcome than what would happen in the matrix.
    And I liked the execution of the ideas, the acting was decent. Despite the movie being very dated, I still enjoyed its looks. The difference between the sepia toned world of the 30s, and the colder bleak one of the reality. Again, similar to the matrix. But to more effect
    Less dramatic as well. Not that keen on the ending, but I didn't hate it.
    Good movie.

    Predators 7/10

    Adrien brody as a "badass"... it's one hell of a show. I didn't really like it the first time, but now it gave me a fuzzy feeling inside. All the winks and nods (or rips you might say) to the first predator etc. made me smirk, giggle, smile, lol and whatnot.
    Laurence fishburne's part was the worst, though. Glad that didn't last long. The predators looked impressive, always liked their looks.
    (I hated the avp movie, though. What a mess)

    Blade Runner 2049-7/10

    A long, slow-paced and involved film. The director Denis Villeneuve doesn't make "Hollywood Style" films. His style of film-making reminds me more of directors like soviet director Andrei Tarkovsky (Stalker, Solaris), Jea-Luc Goddard (Alphaville) and Blade Runner 2049 really reminded me of Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo, The Holy Mountain).

    I'd like to see this film again.........

    No sorry. He get most of the screen time. I'm not that familiar with a lot of his other work.

    Courage Under Fire-7/10

    Not a bad war movie at all. A pretty impressive cast.

    Ghostbusters (1984) -8/10 or maybe even more... could be a 9.

    Loved the acting, humour, pacing, monsters, craziness. Hadn't watched this movie in a long time. Real pleasure to revisit.

    The Amazing Spiderman-8/10

    I have seen the first Spiderman trilogy and I recently saw Spiderman: Homecoming. Having not seen the rest of the Spiderman reboots I thought it was time to fill in the gaps.

    Really well shot action and framing that looks like it could have been taken straight out of the original comics. Generally I thought this flick was very faithful to the comic books; at least as much as I can remember them.

    Really good music too........ The Amazing Spiderman 2: Rise of Electro next.

    Thor Ragnarok (3D)-10/10

    This film is a great example of why Marvel Studios have become such a phenomena. Entertaining, funny and stylish it really pays homage to the comic books.

    Great visuals and music and brilliantly acted.......

    Cate Blanchett and Karl Urban are practically unrecognisable in their roles while the visual style owes much to Guardians of the Galaxy.

    ...... an extremely fun film.

    Everest-10/10

    I saw this when it was released at the cinema. As a true story it's both as fascinating as a story about mountaineering as it is sad because of the tragedy.

    It's amazing to think that this film wasn't shot on Everest, everything about the rendering of the mountain scenes looks so real (at least that's the way it seems).

    Also; great music, really good.

    The Wolf of Wall Street-8/10

    A movie I've been wanting to see for a while. In my opinion any collaboration between Scorsese and Di Caprio is going to be worthwhile. An incredible film story that is supposed to have some basis in true life.

    A bit of a homage to the 1980's style of pure greed and total excess....

    Predators 7-7.99/10

    Or something in between. Fun, silly movie. Adrien brody as an ehmmm....action .. ehh... well... guy. Not really hero.
    Only one that really didn't do it for me was lawrence burnfish. Weird acting. Winks and nudges to the other predator movies,
    cool environment; Yeah it's ok.

    Justice League (3D) -7/10

    The whole world has been waiting for this movie to be terrible. It wasn't that bad and had some very good moments and definitely was a big step up from Batman vs. Superman. This was possibly the inclusion of having Wonder Woman on board but the new and rebooted Flash (a different actor from the TV series) was also good.

    The only real issues with the film were that Jason Momoa (Aquaman) still can't act and:

    I would have preferred to see the Justice League go up against the Suicide Squad but the movie aped Marvel a bit and went in for a battle against the godlike, alien and supernatural Steppenwolf rather than some earth-bound villains.

    The 3D was pretty good too, in my opinion..........

    Well I wouldn't be so sure about that. The way he said "hmm" and "ughh" and "hmwrm". And how we swung that laserrifle PEW PEW. And the expression on that face was... very.....
    I did like the Sateda episode though. Other than that...
