WHO Poll
Q: 2021/22 What competition should we prioritise this season?
a. The league is our bread & butter, so this year let's have a club sandwich
b. We're owed an FA Cup after Gerrard nicked our last one in 06, our name's on it in 22
c. A bye to the League Cup 3rd round gives us a good start, let's make it count
d. The Europa is our best ticket to the Champions League, this is the one
e. What's wrong with you, let's do the lot, has the quadruple ever been done

Look at the first 3 that come up. Hardly brilliant.

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)

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.

You didn't like Signs?!? That's the only film I've ever felt tense watching in the cinema. Love it.

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

He produces all his films as well so doesn't need that many friends as it is a sort of cottage industry.
It means he is free to make what he likes which is a bit of a double edged sword.

Takashi Miike 11:23 Sat Oct 23
Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
the closest I got to liking a film was The Village, and the bit where she climbs over the wall and it's revealed they weren't in fact living in the past completely shit on the previous hour+ viewing. it's almost as if he's trolling/taking the piss out of the audience. he must be a some powerful friends in the industry, to be allowed to keep delivering such crap

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
Kermode is a seriously odd cunt.

He has a ridiculous knowledge of films but he still has a warped sense f what is good.

I agree with him sometimes but find he is more and more a fucking twat as he gets older.

Ideal for the BBC

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
nothing wrong with Blade Runner 2049, actually preferred it to the original which I guess is heresy to most

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
I am with you on M Knight Shyamalan although I enjoyed Glass as well as Split and Unbeakable.

Seeing Dune tomorrow abd really looking forward to it. I also have a blind spot for Denis Villeneuve - Sicario and Arrival are both superb and I love Blade Runner 2049 (although I am in a minority on that one with my son who also loved it).

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
Bang on about Kermode. Swiss. The guy has a massive blindside. Namely Danny Boyle. And William Friedkin. Turns into a massive teenage girl when anyone disagrees with his opinion. So he is perfect for the Beeb.

Mark Kermode is an shit critic. Stealing a living.

Can't wait to see Dune, Kermode's review of it has me hyped

You don't like Sixth Sense or Unbreakable? Agreed everything Shyamalan has done since except Split has been shite,.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
watched shyamalan's latest film 'Old'. I haven't liked any of his previous films, and he didn't disappoint this time. utter 🐕💩

If you like a wester then Old Henry is well worth a look! Tim Blake Nelson superb in the lead role

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
I watched Dune last night and was pleasantly surprised after all the negative reviews. I think it's a difficult book to put to film but they did a decent job.

End of Watch is another very good Gyllenhall film
2 patrol policemen in LA

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021)
M Night Shyamalan’s latest film Old is worth a watch. An interesting premise not greatly executed, which will divide opinion but still a unique story.
