Farrell was great. It's a cracking film, we watched it again not that long ago!

The Godfather Part III (1990) - 7/10
The final part in the trilogy. Part of me thinks they should have left it be after the second one, but it wasn't all that bad. A young Andy Garcia looking to become the mob leader :D

The Punisher (1989) - 5/10
Dolph Lundgren as the punisher in this one. I think I rated it so low because of the poor quality of acting :D It was just bad!

Dreamgirls (2006) - 7/10
Based on Diana Ross and the Supremes. It was actually an interesting back story so got a 7 from me.

Gladiator (200) 10/10
Maximus! Love Gladiator and loved watching it again. Top film, top acting and Joaquin Phoenix is a bastard!

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) - 7/10
Seeing one of my favourite books as a kid come to life on screen was amazing.. in 2002. Now, I look back and find the cast performance so wooden. I suppose it's their age though.

Captain America (1990) - 3/10
Oh dear... I thought Howard the Duck was bad. This was absolutely shocking. Says it all actually that it has an IMDB rating of 3.2!

Finding Dory (2016) - 7/10
Not bad as a sequel to Nemo, which is decent.

The Commitments (1991) - 8/10
I love this film, so much that I have the soundtrack and seen it twice in theatres :D

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) - 8/10
Good to see Gary Oldman join the cast, always thought he's a decent actor.

Interstellar (2014) - 7/10
Not too sure about this one. It was good, but I don't get the hype around it and I lost interest with how it panned out in the end.

The Fantastic Four (1994) 2/10
Wow, this might be the worst film I have ever watched! The first movie that Marvel made based on Fantastic Four was just... utter shite!

The Change-Up (2011) 5/10
Basically a Freaky Friday movie but with blokes.

Django Unchained (2012) 9/10
Tarantino strikes again! Always did like a movie from Tarantino and this one is up there with his best work.

My Fair Lady (1964) 8/10
Surprisingly gave this one an 8, maybe as musical movies are a guilty pleasure :D

Pompeii (2014) 6/10
"Jon Snow" from GoT stars as the lead in an average rom-action movie.

Blade (1998) 7/10
A steady 7 from me for Wesley Snipes' first movie instalment of a trilogy.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) 10/10
Absolutely superb. I never watched a single Star Wars movie until my late teens so every time I watch it now, I thoroughly enjoy them.

Mother's Day (2016) 6/10
A bit boring if I remember, I think 6 just tends to be my 'meh, it was OK' rating.

X-Men (2000) 7/10
Not a bad start in the X-Men movies with Hugh Jackman.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) 8/10
Starts to get dark here and I love it.

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) 9/10
The arrival of Yoda!

Blade II (2002) 6/10
First one was good, but follow up not so much.

Father of the Bride (1991) 7/10
Steve Martin excels in this family comedy.

The Santa Clause (1994) 7/10
One of my favourite Xmas movies as a kid, so a steady 7 from me.

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983) 9/10
The best of the trilogy as we conclude with Luke becoming a Jedi.

Elf (2003) 7/10
Feel good Christmas movie, although I don't get the hype around it.

Spider-Man (2002) 7/10
The first of the Tobey Maguire movies.

The Girl on the Train (2016) 4/10
I can remember the book being very popular at the time, but the movie was really poorly done in comparison.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) 6/10
Oh dear! While it was nice to see Star Wars back, it's nowhere near as good.

Easy A (2010) 7/10
Steady 7 for this American teen rom comedy.

Daredevil (2003) - 5/10
Ben Affleck as Daredevil. It was a bit crap, wasn't it? Even with Elektra getting involved.

The Devil Wears Prada (2006) - 7/10
Thought this was surprisingly OK. Gave it a 7 rather than the usual 'meh, it was OK, 6 it is'.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) - 7/10
Anakin Skywalker grows up with Hayden Christensen portraying him. I don't think it was as bad as it was made out to be?

Jason Bourne (2016) - 7/10
I think we watched this one round the missus's parents house at Xmas, so I've rated it before all the original movies. They all seem to merge into each other but still worth a watch.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) - 8/10
One of my favourite books, as it gets darker and darker. It was nice to see it come to life on screen.

X-Men 2 (2003) - 6/10
Couldn't really get into this one. I liked the first but this one wasn't a great follow-up.

The Pink Panther (2006) - 5/10
Admittedly I don't really remember the originals but thought Steve Martin was just way over the top when they remade this.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005) - 7/10
This one also gets a 7 from me simply because I like the way it links the original movies in its ending.

Serena (2014) - 6/10
I must have been a bit drunk when I gave this a 6 because thinking back now, I didn't think it was very good at all.

Hulk (2003) - 5/10
The Eric Bana version of Hulk was just... no. I didn't rate it at all.

This Is 40 (2012) - 6/10
So this is based on the same couple that Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann play in Superbad. I thought it'd be a great laugh but it wasn't particularly that good.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) - 4/10
For completeness, I thought we ought to watch the animated version of this as part of the series. Shouldn't have bothered.

The Strangers (2008) - 6/10
Thriller with Liv Tyler. Didn't find it that good.

The Punisher (2004) - 6/10
The version with John Travolta as the bad guy. They just can't get these right, can they? Am sure there'll be another one out soon :D

A Cinderella Story (2004) - 5/10
:roll:

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) - 10/10
Loved it, I had such a buzz when watching it for the first time as Star Wars came back. Really, really enjoyed it.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) - 9/10
Like I said before, I grew up reading the books so it's good to see it come to life on screen.

Spider-Man 2 (2004) - 7/10
Surprised I gave this one a 7 as I don't think it was that good now. The Tom Holland effect?

The Incredibles (2004) - 9/10
A very fun movie to watch, especially for an animated movie.

The Silence of the Lambs (1991) - 7/10
Just a 7 from me on this one, didn't get into it as much as it has been hyped up to be.

Knocked Up I think! But yeah I don't recall it being funny at all, got 5/10 from me.

Ah yes, that's the one. My bad, had Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill in my head but wrong film :D

Happiest Season – 6/10. A very 21st century Christmas film, a couple of gay women go to one of their parents’ house for Christmas, but they don’t know she’s gay. It was ok, feel like they could’ve done more with it. The best bits were when the guy from Schitt’s Creek turned up, but even his funniest bits were in the trailer.

A Star Is Born – 7/10. I was promised that this film would make me cry, but I didn’t cry, so it made me feel like a monster. Good film though, surprised how good Lady Gaga was.

Greed – 7/10. Based on rich people like Philip Green, with Steve Coogan in the main role. Quite funny, enjoyed it.

Bad Boys for Life – 5/10. I think I enjoyed the original movies, but that’s probably because I was a child. This was ostensibly a comedy but it wasn’t funny… too long and a bit boring/formulaic.

The Death and Life of John F. Donovan – 6/10. Didn’t dislike it, it was fine enough, but think I’d stop short of recommending it to anyone. The guy with the hair from Game of Thrones stars.

Bad Moms – 7/10. Had to watch Bad Moms for balance after Bad Boys. Better than I expected, plenty of funny lines and a good cast (i.e. glad that neither Kate McKinnon nor Rebel Wilson were in it). Was surprised to see three-time NFL Defensive Payer of the Year JJ Watt with a role, and he didn’t disgrace himself!

Sully – 8/10. Hella good, Tom Hanks just keeps banging them out. About the guy landing that plane on the Hudson river in 2009 (didn’t realise it was so long ago). Wondered how they’d string it out for 90+ minutes but it’s really well done.

Passengers – 4/10. Too long, a bit shit. I think you’re meant to be amazed by the many many cut shots of the spaceship, but one cut shot of it was enough for me. The last half an hour might have been written by an 8-year-old.

My Days of Mercy – 6/10. About two idealistically opposed women who end up having a fling. A bit slow but a good story and overall ‘ok’ I guess.

Arizona – 6/10. Dark comedy set around the time of the 2008 (or 2009?) financial crash. I know Danny McBride plays the same guy every time, but he does it well here and drags this from a 5 to a 6.

I think I liked Passengers!

Haven't gotten around to watching the new Bad Boys film yet. Bad Moms was OK, definitely the sort of movie you'd expect Rebel Wilson to be in :D

The Gentlemen - 2019

This is your typical Guy Ritchie kid of film, angles from all over place, now I won't lie, I'd watched more than half of it, before I gave up weeks back, as Hugh Grant was doing my nut in, the role he played was piss poor, but literally finished it 5 minutes ago (finally). Charlie Hunnam does a good job, but the stand out person (once again) is Colin Farrell, who is brilliant, its that Irish accent that does it. Every scene hes in, will have an element of entertainment in it. This Id say is on par with Snatch/Lock Stock, given its over 15 years after those British Gangster Films - Ill be kind and give this 7/10

I started watching it and was thinking it looks to be a good movie when the missus had to go out and asked if she could watch it with me another time! Obviously, we've not done that yet!

Bee Movie (2007) - 6/10
Quite a good moral to the story in this, so it's an OK watch.

Elektra (2005) - 5/10
Gosh, DC Comics were/are such a long way behind Marvel movies!

Monsters, Inc. (2001) - 8/10
Bit of a classic animated film.

Avatar (2009) - 7/10
This is good, but I don't get the hype around it. It's also a bit too long for my liking.

Fantastic Four (I) (2005)- 5/10
Yeah, Marvel movies aren't always that good either :D This is the one with Chris Evans and Jessica Alba.

Me Before You (2016) - 8/10
Quite an emotional movie and it had the added bonus of Emilia Clarke in it!

101 Dalmatians (1996) - 7/10
A childhood classic brought to life, a fun watch.

Inglourious Basterds (2009) - 10/10
Absolutely amazing film. How good was Christoph Waltz?!

The Lion King (1994) - 9/10
Now this is an actual classic animated movie!

Blade: Trinity (2004) - 6/10
The final instalment of the trilogy with Ryan Reynolds and Triple H in it :D

Not really a 'Marvel Film' in the MCU sense of the world

Owned by Constantine Film and made by 20th Century Fox...no real Marvel involvement after Marvel sold the rights years earlier.

Marvel in "comic name " only at that point

St. Trinian's (2007) 6/10
Surprised I gave this a 6, maybe just because I used to have a crush on Sarah Harding back when she was in Girls Aloud :D

Saving Private Ryan (1998) 9/10
Say no more, classic war film and possibly one of the best. Tom Hanks at his best along with an all-star cast.

The Shallows (2016) 6/10
Another cheap budget film about a shark, wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be but obviously not amazing.

X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) 6/10
Not sure what it was about this, but didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Maybe it's the whole Jean Grey is a baddie thing.

Bad Moms (2016) 6/10
riise mentioned that it was funnier that he expected. It isn't bad, but it's not great either. Just a girls attempt at making a Hangover movie.

The Departed (2006) 8/10
Ticked off another classic movie which gets an 8 from me. I think I felt it went on a bit too long, and didn't rate it any higher as a result.

Horrible Bosses (2011) 7/10
Decent comedy worth watching, particularly for one Jennifer Aniston!

Ghost Rider (2007) 5/10
Very, very poorly directed.

The Proposal (I) (2009) 7/10
Another decent comedy, though it's more of a chick flick.

Schindler's List (1993) 9/10
I had never seen this before, and knew it would be a long slog but wow. A very powerful movie and really is worth watching.

Zack Snyder's Justice League - 7.5/10

Don't know if anyone's got around to watching. After all it is 3h52m long. But big DC fan so i made sure too on my day off. A lot better then Whedon's version. Characters are portrayed a lot better, and the action scenes are sublime. A bit cheated there's no follow-up in some ways, left with enough for more films down the line but God knows what happening with the whole 'verse now.

Think the stand-alone films/franchises would make more sense for DC going forward, especially with The Jokers' success.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011) 6/10
Had expected better for a Steve Carell comedy but it wasn't great.

Spider-Man 3 (2007) 7/10
The one where Venom comes along and Tobey Maguire looks ridiculous playing a bad guy. I can see why they stopped after that.

Just Go with It (2011) 7/10
I do like an Adam Sandler comedy, and teaming up with Jennifer Aniston, this is a good laugh.

The Prestige (2006) 7/10
Another good movie and one you have to pay attention to. It has Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale pairing off against each other.

Crash (I) (2004) 7/10
Must have been made to watch this several times now. It was good the first time we watched it, and more recently, it's started to grate on me :D

Iron Man (2008) 8/10
The one that kicks off MCU's first series of movies! It'll go down as a classic.

Les Misérables (2012) 8/10
Never seen it or read it in any format before so I guess it did captivate me a little. Can see why Russell Crowe got a lot of stick for his singing though :D

Memento (2000) 7/10
I liked it. It's not quite as good as I thought it'd be, particularly with the twist but still worth a watch.

Seven Pounds (2008) 6/10
Will Smith starts in a compelling movie about regret and changing the lives of strangers. It's not too bad and maybe a 6 was slightly harsh.

Punisher: War Zone (2008) 3/10
Gosh, what utter tripe this was. How many attempts at making a decent Punisher movie is that now?!

Wow, you give the same rating for both Just Go With It and The Prestige? I guess Brooklyn Dekker in a bikini brings the rating up 4 or 5 points!
