The Wedding Singer (1998) 7/10
One of the early Adam Sandler movies and the first with Drew Barrymore.

American Beauty (1999) 7/10
This is one of the more popular movies, isn't it? Didn't quite get the hype around it, tbh. Basically just an old man being very creepy!

The Time Traveler's Wife (2009) 8/10
Enjoyed this one, very cleverly written and gets emotional.

The Incredible Hulk (2008) 6/10
The Edward Norton version and Tim Roth as the bad guy. The latter works for me, but just didn't get into it as much as the other ones.

Moana (I) (2016) 7/10
Surprised I gave this a 7 at the time, but I suppose I did enjoy the historical element to the story.

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) 8/10
Very long movie (3 hours) but worth it, as long as you are paying attention!

Iron Man 2 (2010) 7/10
The follow up with Mickey Rourke as the bad guy, it's not as good as the first but still worthy of watching.

Blended (2014) 7/10
Another Adam Sandler movie with Barrymore.

Why Him? (2016) 6/10
One of those comedy films that tries too hard. Had Bryan Cranston and Jame Franco in it.

Rogue One (2016) 7/10
Interesting spin-off movie from the Star Wars universe.

Haven't watched movies for a long time but some I really enjoyed in the past

Martyrs (French Version) 8/10 the scene where the Martyr had her skinned peeled off and looking up to the cult leader freaked me out for days! There was some themes I disliked in the movie but can't say on this forum but overall for a psychological horror with some deep undertones to it I found it really good.

The Moon 8/10 last Kevin Spacey film I watched or ever would watch considering his pedolistic hollywood connections. The film centres around a worker on the moon alone and isolated and in this future what is real and hyper real will freak you out and hit you on an emotional level. The only form of interaction this worker has is a robot on the space station with a bright yellow happy face and video clips he receives from earth.

Terminator2 9/10 Just a classic great story and production even the special effects don't even look that dated considering how long ago the film was produced

Shutter Island 9/10 are all these murders staged or self delusion? is this island insane or is the federal agent insane ?or is he simply a patient there being psychologically experimented with and f**** with?

Stardust (2007) 6/10
Why did I give this a 6?!

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) 6/10
Wolverine vs his brother, didn't really get into this storyline.

La La Land (2016) 8/10
Not bad, but don't get the hype around it at the time.

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) 8/10
The best Robin Hood movie for me, and a classic.

Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) 5/10
Poor sequel to the original. Also, always very strange seeing Captain America as a Fantastic Four!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006) 7/10
The worse of them so far, imo. Certainly not as good as the first ones.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007) 8/10
Much better effort with his one.

Thor (2011) 7/10
Continuing with the Marvel movies.

Taken (I) (2008) 10/10
I love it, absolutely love it. Liam Neeson plays this one perfectly.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) 6/10
My mistake, this was the worst of them all. Can see how it's just being milked now.

Rise Of The Footsoldier (2007) 8/10

Rise Of The Footsoldier 2 (2015) 6/10

Rise Of The Footsoldier 3 (Pat Tait Story) (2017) 10/10

Rise Of The Footsoldier 4 (Marbella) (2019) 7/10

Rise Of The Footsoldier 5 (Tony Tucker Story) (2021 Due Release)

I'm a big fan of the true story behind the events of the above films, but you have to ask yourself, "how many different perspectives do we wanna see?" the above don't include Bonded By Blood 1 & 2, neither The Fall Of The Essex Boys, and then of course you have the books that have been released by Carlton Leech and Bernard O'Mahoney and I'm guessing, many more too.

Ricci Harnett plays Carlton okay-ish. Has the London accent down to perfection, but in my opinion, Terry Stone who plays Tony Tucker, and Craig Fairbrass who plays Pat Tait, are in a different class. They play their roles superb, not sure, in the upcoming number 5, it'll have the same effect, given they are 14 years older from when they first played them. Other great actors that have appeared in the franchise, Frank Harper, Nick Nevern, Andrew Loveday, Tony Denham, Neil Maskell, and others, but one that sticks out for me, as possibly the best of the lot... Billy Murray, who plays Mickey Steels

Ther person who lets it all down, in my opinion, is Roland Manookian who plays Craig Rolfe, I feel hes too basic and bland, and feel, his character was played much better by Simon Phillips

Vengeance (2020) Billy Murray & Leslie Grantham

Had real high expectations on this, although it was released 2 years after the passing of Dirty Den, this sort of film is right up his street, and then theres good old Don Beech or Johnny Allen, whichever you refer him as, I think hes class. Firstly theres a few references to Eastendersm and only reason I picked up on it, was because, its when Albert Square was at its peak (imo) for gangsters, and it was a scene in the pub, which included both these actors.

However, seeming very similar to 'We Still Kill The Old Way' it was shocking, I like a bit of dramatic music, but this was crazy, and the daft part for me, when we had a scene of 2 people chatting, it seemed to go on forever, and it was prolonged, maybe to extend the film minutes

It had the storyline, but not the real gritty part, we as fans, all wanna see. It was a rushed ending, and several things not concluded. The worse part, is it was left open for a number 2, which for me, just topped off. So its a 2/10

Nemesis (2021) Billy Murray & Nick Moran

This was pretty decent, and had a decent cast to make it work. I felt Frank Harper didnt deliver no where near his best, but the main 2, were exceptional. The story is very good, and worth a watch, I woudnt put it on par with Football Factory or anything like that, but if you like this sort of stuff normally, you'll enjoy this - 6/10

Hobbs & Shaw - 2019 - Dwayne Johnson & Jason Statham

The way these 2 work together is just sheer class. With the concept of the F & F Francise added in, (sounds and cars) the storyline is great. I dont under estimate this, and think it was too much, far from it, Idris Elba is a superb bad guy, and the small cameos from Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Hart, just adds to the funny part of this film. Vanessa Kirby also does a great job in this, and the cameo from Helen Mirron, is also superbly played.

I don't often give such ratings like I will for this, as it takes alot to please me, but I watched this film again this morning (3rd time I think total) and you can't help but love it. Not a fan of leaving the film with a ? so to speak, but who knows, but in fairness, these two front poster boys worked great in F & F 8, and that continued into this great film

Easy 10/10 from me

Lion – 7/10. I was vaguely aware of the plot already but was still surprised by it (Indian kid gets lost, later adopted by Australian family). Thought it was headed for an 8 but I much preferred the first half to the second.

Song to Song – 6/10. Nearly turned this off after about 15 mins, but had nothing else to do and ended up thinking it was ok, though I’m still not entirely sure what it was about. Apparently the initial cut was 8 hours… glad they got it down to 2. Helluva cast though (Blanchett, Fassbender, Gosling, Mara, Portman).

Logan Lucky – 6/10. It was alright. I expected more, which is probably my own fault. Daniel Craig has a supporting role playing very against type, which was entertaining.

Jexi – 6/10. Bloke gets bullied by the Siri-like thing on his phone. Completely pointless but actually had some funny bits which stopped it being terrible.

Wonder – 6/10. Don’t think I’m the target audience for this but it was alright, wasn’t bored.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates – 5/10. A comedy that isn’t particularly funny, closer to a 4 than a 6.

Zeroville – 5/10. Another boring James Franco vanity project. The fact it was filmed in 2014 but not released until 2019 should’ve been a red flag.

People Places Things – 7/10. I assume this was on my watchlist cos of Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords). Fairly standard indie fare, but I enjoyed it.

Promising Young Woman – 6/10. It’s been 10 years since Drive but I still love me some Carey Mulligan. This was alright, don’t really understand the awards buzz around it, beyond it just being the right film at the right time.

Secret in Their Eyes – 6/10. I seem to say this a lot, but no idea why this was on my watchlist. Big-name main cast but nobody I particularly care about. Anyway, it was ok considering it’s not my thing (Crime/Drama/Mystery/Thriller) - ex-cop pursues an old case so jumps back and forth a lot.

Spiral: From the Book of Saw - 2021 - Chris Rock & Samuel L Jackson

Being a Saw fan, I've been looking forward to this, and having to wait an additional year, I finally got to watch it this morning.
Fair to say here, Chris Rock does a really good job, my only thing is that I cant help but take him as a comedy actor, or hearing his voice
as a hamster in Dr Doolittle, but never the less, he plays his role very good, and showcases hes got multi skills. Samuel L Jackson, who I really rate,
never seems to age, and is also very good, except, doesnt have enough screen time in my opinion

The film itself, isnt too bad, not as a good as I thought it would be, very Saw indeed, but the annoying part was the ending (Spoiler) but certainly
a film that when it gets to the nitty gritty, you think to yourself "Ahhhhh yeah that makes sense now" which is its purposes. Some good effects through out the film, but I do feel, abit more of the budget should've be spread more across props, lighting etc...

For me, its 6/10

I wasn't sure whether I'd be able to take him seriously in the fourth season of Fargo, but he does a good job and it'd probably be weird seeing him in a comedy now!

Blood And Bone - 2009 - Michael Jai White

For me, this is a superb film, if you enjoy this type of genre, Michael Jai White's skills in this, are better than any film hes appeared in, before and after, in my opinion. Its predictable to an extent, and maybe a bit far fetched, but its a fighting bad ass movie, and very much reminds me of the movie, AWOL. Kimbo Slice makes a cameo appearance, not really worth it in my opinion, and one thing I will point out, Eamonn Walker, plays his part superb, for an English guy who played a camp social worker in the 80s (In Sickness And In Health) he really steps it up here, and can only assume, hes now developed a natural American accent

8/10

Kate - 9/10

Currently available on Netflix (Australia). I only really watched it as I've pretty much completed the streaming channel. However, I was pleasantly surprised! It's got a unique storyline, features Woody Harrelson, action scenes which make John Wick look tame, and Japanese pop music throughout. Must watch in my eyes. Anyone else watched it?

Eat Pray Love (2010) 3/10
Julia Roberts movie. Completely pointless movie.

Cinderella (I) (2015) 6/10
The live action version. Disney certainly trying to make a few extra bucks bringing animated ones to life.

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) 7/10
Not sure why but I never got into Captain America.

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) 8/10
The best Robin Hood movie for me, and a classic.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) 8/10
Decent movie.

The Green Mile (1999) 10/10
Nothing more to be said. Absolute classic, as most Hanks movies are. And great acting from Michael Clarke Duncan.

The Lovely Bones (2009) 4/10
So called drama. Really poor considering it was directed by Peter Jackson!

V for Vendetta (2005) 6/10
I definitely don't get the hype around this movie. Found it boring!

Nine (2009) 5/10
Missus picked this Italian musical film. No idea what was going on half the time!

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011) 3/10
The follow up to the original Ghost Rider. Why did they bother?!

The storyline was woeful. However, what happens on that beach is immense. Definitely worth watching at least once in your life.

Bruce Willis movie. It's OK.

Enjoyable one to see all the superheroes together.

Pretty Woman (1990) 7/10
Surprised I gave this one a 7!

American History X (1998) 8/10
Had never seen this before. Definitely an awkward subject for a movie, but was well worth the watch.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) 5/10
One of those OTT comedy movies.

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) 7/10
Don't think Andrew Garfield was as bad as I thought as Spiderman?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010) 9/10
Very well directed, as it goes dark.

Back to the Future (1985) 9/10
Great classic.

Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins (2021)

The 5th instalment in yet another story behind the real life 'Essex Boys' murders from the 90s. What I like about this is, as most who will watch this, knowing the history and the other stories and perspectives, it was a case of "how is this going to be any different? well I hold my hands up. Last year they were recruiting anyone and everyone to play a small part and basically fund this project, which worried me of the conclusion if the truth be told. Never the less, Vinny Jones came on board, not that I think hes anything special, Craig Fairbrass did a great job in his small part, but in fairness, he turned up for 4 days filming, and didnt let anyone down. As this is based on Tony Tucker (Terry Stone) the storyline was decent, and merely just a different angle. I felt it was very good performances from P.H. Moriarty and Keith Allen, Terry Stone was just superb, but the man who stuck out for me was George Russo, who played Basildon Joe - brilliantly played, had the real attitude for his role. Vinny Jones was 'Ok' - ish. If you've followed the franchise (if thats what its called) then you'll of liked the additional credit scene where we get a cameo from Billy Murray, but if you havent followed the movies, this scene may not make any sense. Roland Manookian plays his part as bland as he has in all the movies (except no 2)

I did like the ending of the shake of the hands between Tony and Carlton (who you cant see) I feel this was a good shot to have, to almost put a end to the franchise and go full circle - but again, this wont make sense if you've not seen No 1 or No 2

Overall, Ill give it 7/10
