Watched Full Metal Jacket finally

The drill instructor>>>> any army instructor in any movie. Guy went in. Was the funniest possible, yet still serious. Perfect portrayal.

Thought the training scenes were perfectly done, but the rest of the film maybe a little average

Would have liked more backstory so I can see these characters outside of the army. Normally in a war movie they will write home/ receive letters or show flashbacks, gives the characters more depth, and maybe these characters were empty to me for that reason.

^ tis a classic. 

 

Most Wanted Man was decent, as long as You don't expect action. It's all political/spy, fairly slow moving.

 

Before I go to Sleep was good for surprise elements, didn't see it coming, was like a better Side Effects.

I watched Think Like A Man Too

Not as good as the first one

This film made my love for Black women stronger

If it wasn't for this film I would still be entertaining Beckys

I never seen such a World Class female cast ever

Forgot how fucked the film was, but the directors cut is real gory, some good extra added scenes aswell. Would definitely recommend the directors cut

Want to see how this guy does in a lead role, was good in Fast 6 and The Hobbit.... Dracula Untold

 

 

Much better than I expected, good story. they could have done a bit more with the action though. 

 

Dominic Cooper was very under used, so the story lacked a real villain. 

 

The Master Vampire could also have been used more. 

 

I have a continuity issue

for 2 days, this vampire has to resist a thirst for blood, which we don't see until the day he chooses to drink the blood - from what I know, vampires are constantly thirsting for blood

 

then, when anyone else becomes a vampire, they immediately target humans for their blood like the bloodthirsty vampires they are. I want consistency

Annabelle was terrible! Shockingly bad film. 

 

There is no horror for large portions of the film, just shots of a lady sleeping, while a doll walks around the house. Which is meant to scare us like we didn't know we were watching a horror film about a doll. 

 

The actors are so bad, I can tell they're acting, in no way natural. 

 

The only thing that stands out in the film is that there's a pregnancy at risk. 

 

Anything that was meant to build suspense was predictable. 

 

You show me a woman sewing then getting distracted by a TV, what's gonna happen?

 

either she cuts herself, messes up her sewing or she manages fine. no suspense. 

 

Comparable to Paranormal Activity except it was filmed properly

From the author of The Notebook, maybe fans of that will like - Best of Me

 

Film was beautiful, very glad I watched.

 

Possibly the best romantic film I've seen since Before Sunrise, if not even better. 

 

Had a lot of character depth, I especially liked the relationship between the guy and the old man he befriended, and the old man's character in general. 

 

Family conflicts were well played out, and I'd say good acting by everyone bar the younger girl but she was meant to be that type of annoying teenager so maybe she did an alright job. 

 

There was a lot more to it than expected, even had its action moments. 

 

For me it showed and developed the 2 protagonists' stories on their own better than most romantic films tend to do

 

Photography was nice (take this image here:)

the short shot of Michelle Monaghan's bum was decent, and it was better than I expected having seen it in clothes

Only negs were the ending

stolen from 7 Pounds, and it didn't need to end that way anyway

and the same actor used to play 2 characters. yes they were meant to look alike, but using the same actor was more confusing than anything else.

Imitation Game was brilliant, good historical account.

 

if You like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, You'll love the character in this.

 

Same social awkwardness, which was well written into the film, more of a genius, and brilliantly portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch

 

Possibly Oscar for best actor, possibly. 

 

Couldn't believe how packed the cinema was, considering it was a biopic, English people really do love Benedict Cumberbatch
