Seen a few worthy films lately but just want to mention Old Henry, a gritty cowboy film refreshingly devoid of black lesbian gunfighters.

I never really liked Westerns growing up a my old man loved them and I recall loads of Sunday afternoons with him watching John Wayne films we'd all seen fifty times before thinking 'for fuck sake dad, this shit AGAIN plus school tomorrow'?

I couldn't stand a weekend when my little pals were doing other stuff as dad would always subject me to the wrestling on World Of Sport on Saturday too.

I can still summon up the sheer dispair I used to feel if I try.

Anyway, wandered off there, Old Henry, great film.

I saw The Deep House a low budget ghost story with Mick's kid James Jagger (Who looks like Slaven Bilic). Was an interesting slant as an under water haunting.Worth a watch.

That Camille Rowe is stunning but a bit ginger.

Good call on young Soprano and John Cussack.

Was a big fan of Villeneuve especially Prisoners closely followed by Sicario. Which are excellent. Not sure why he's moved into SciFi. Arrivals was OK, Blade Runner not too good and Dune OK.

The bloke who plays Junior in the film does say it, but it doesn't have the same impact. It was just said as it's something the character in the show would say.

Junior was a brilliant character in The Sopranos, almost my favourite, but the film version is entirely miscast.

currently watching the series again, and have no interest in the film but did hear the only decent thing about it was Farmiga

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
Yeah, Many Saints of Newark is utter shite. The main story is unrelated to the Sopranos and is just a 3rd rate gangster b-movie. Then you have loads of short, unnecessary scenes that seem to have no other reason for their existence than to show a glimpse of Carmela, Paulie, Silvio, etc. when they were younger. None of those scenes add anything to the film or shed any new light on the characters from the series.

My main takeaway from it was that the Gandolfini kid looks the dead spit of John Cusack, not his father.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
PB, fuck, I have already downloaded it and was quite looking forward to it. Cheers for saving two and a bit hours of my rapidly downhill life!

Manuel has suggested a few Craig Fairbrass films that I am going to get and watch straight after I have finished Dope Sick, the drama about the stuff I am currently addicted to because of my recent pushbike accident, Oxycontin.

It's a great series (I know that this is the wrong thread) but fuck me, how great is Michael Keaton an actor?

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
Many Saints of Newark. If you're a Sopranos fan like myself, avoid like the plague. The film is sold on false pretences of seeing how Tony begins his journey, but his inclusion is a peripheral story that's fleeting at best. In contrast, the story focuses heavily on Dickie Maltasanti.

The only plus is that the fleeting appearance of Michael Gandolfini playing his dad's most famous character is decent, and he captures the mannerisms of Tony in the show perfectly.

I'd been looking forward to this film since it was announced. It's such a shame it's a lump of uninteresting shit.

I'm with you Joe... absolutely love Sicario... seen it double figures at least... the bit at the border control is one of my fav scenes ever... liked the original Dune with Sting and co so will check out the new one... lead actor Tim Chalamet is a superb actor... was brilliant in the King

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
Dune. Solid 7 from me.If they make enough wedge to finish it. Then it might improve. It looks great and the cast is spot on. But it ain’t the classic the vast majority are banging on about.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
Dune has been pretty much universally praised (despite Swiss saying “after all the negative reviews” - you only have to Google ‘Dune review’ to see that he’s wrong), but I was disappointed.

I’m a big fan of Scicario and of Arrival, but Blade Runner 2049 left me cold - found it too much a case of style over substance, and was quite bored by the end.

Same with Dune unfortunately. Very impressive to look at, but Denis Villeneuve has dumbed the source material down so much to cater for people that have never read the book that character development and exposition really suffer.

The other issues is Hans Zimmers score - as with BR 2049, it’s just too loud. When nothing much is happening on screen, you don’t need to deafen people. Nolan did the same, particularly with Interstellar.

That’s not to say it’s a bad film, I hope the second part gets made (as it’s quite an abrupt ending covering only the first half of the book), but it’s not the ultimate work some reviews are making it out to be (for me)

7/10

Swiss glad to hear you liked Dune as I'm hopefully off to see it this week

I went to the IMEX a couple of weeks ago to see Craig in his farewell role as Bond, all I want to add is that those fucking woke Yanks have destroyed a once great movie franchise

I am not a fan but have the sort of brain that holds on to useless information and listen to Radio 4 a lot.
Handy for a pub quiz but not a lot else.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
does he? you must be a fan, I wouldn't have known that. I just looked up how much, possibly the worst film ever, 'the happening' took at the box office. $163m. that right there is an indicator of why the world is so fucked
