    The Expendables-4/10

    Muscle-bound cheese factory. 1980's style testosterone advertisement. Action heroes galore.......... predictable plot and dialogue.

    More cheese. More testosterone. More of the same.

    Coco - 8/10

    Loved it, but I'm a sucker who really enjoys most of what Pixar put out. I was however watching it with my son so it was a challenge to keep him quiet for the entire screening.

    It also significantly improves on the books. The original authors are on the show's writing team and this version of the story looks like they learned from the process of writing the books as well.

    The show's hard SF credentials are much improved from those of the books where the hard SF element was but a patina. They still do annoying things like fudge travel times but by an large things are much better.

    The Monkees: Head-8/10

    I've been wanting to see this film again for a long time. Despite being a Monkees film, this is 80 minutes of destruction of the whole Monkees image, and a sometimes vicious looks at 1960's culture.

    Written by Jack Nicholson and Bob Rafelson and directed by Bob Rafelson (Five Easy Pieces (1970), The King of Marvin Gardens (1972), and The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981)) Head is, in my opinion, one of the 1960's hidden counterculture gems and a bit of a masterpiece. It also contains some of the best music ever written for, and performed by, The Monkees.

    Ghost in a Shell - 6/10

    Have vague memories of watching the anime. It wasn't amazing but think I'll rewatch it so I can watch it all through in 1 sitting.

    Black Panther-7.5/10

    I enjoyed it and I thought it was a very different type of Marvel film in many ways. Great visuals and action but.......

    ..... an extremely politically loaded film, very sociopolitical even for Marvel.

    My only criticism is not so much at Marvel or this film but Hollywood generally:

    Why is it always, when there is a major battle scene and the "good guys" seem to be losing, does a "cavalry" of some sort turn up to save the day?

    The Revenant-7.5/10

    A well acted, well put together film. The real star of the movie is the amazing wilderness settings which were stunningly photographed and supported by excellent soundtrack music.

    Warcraft: The Begining-3/10

    I never played WoW so I have no idea of the lore behind this cheese factory. While it looked good in places and the music was o.k. the flick was an ultimately lame and shallow pile of orc poo.

    It played more like a bad Saturday morning children's' tv series.

    Agreed despite the fact I only gave it 7.5. I was trying not to be overgenerous despite the fact the flick is good on all levels and great entertainment.

    [Marvel Fan]I'd see it again any time.[/Marvel Fan]

    Fail Safe-9/10

    And old flick with Sidney Lumet directing and the production values and vibe of the movie feel old.

    I hadn't seen this in years and years so I'd forgotten the way most of it played except for the ending was remains super-powerful (and might be a bit more topical recently and unfortunately).

    For what it was back in its day and what it still means and sells to an audience I have to give it a nine and...........

    Walter Matthau's character remains one of the vilest, most evil characters ever portrayed on film, in my opinion. Well played and RIP.

    the thing (1982)

    No matter how many times I watch this movie, it always catches me by the throat. The subtle sparse use of music/sounds, combined with the immersive environments and creature design. A mysterious "guest" insidiously working its way through the company of scientists, the paranoia these people quickly succumb to. The acting was natural and really pulled the viewer in. I'm not sure how many people nowadays could stomach the slower paced moments. The times the creature manifests itself are still quite impressive. The work that must've gone into making these models/props etc. ..truly admirable. There are some unforgetable moments in this movie (the blood test f.e.) which still made me go tense, even though I knew what was coming; Hallmark of a good movie. And the ending was just perfect. It's left to the imagination of the viewer. What could be better than that. Fuck those so called convoluted explanations some people give to movie endings. Just "figure" it out for yourself. Or don't. Sometimes you just don't have to. Because it's perfect that way.

    9-9.19-9.99-9.023/10 I'm happy.
