    I thought it was a great movie.

    The story's not bad, typical. But the visual and sound effect was amazing.

    Not as fast-paced or action-packed as Mad Max: Fury Road, but it's up there with the best of sci-fi in my book.

    Sure beat the older Blade Runner 'cause I've tried to watch that crap quite a few times since HS and never managed.

    I saw Blade Runner 2049 recently and I couldn't recommend it enough. Amazing movie. I've also seen What Happened to Monday, a sci-fi dystopian movie with an interesting plot. It was like a solid 6/10.

    I thought this movie was interesting.

    It's called The Dud. It's about a world where everyone has a disability - except for the very off person who doesn't. In this special world such people are called "without speciality". Turns the world on it's head . !

    Check it out.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    It's pretty awesome. Not perfect but they did a lot of things right. Better than the Force Awaken I reckon.

    The light saber fight scenes could be a lot better. They should copy the likes of Kurosawa for those. Though the light saber looks and sound pretty dam great at close up, the fight sequences are pretty Lucas-like rubbish.

    The fights with the Praetorian guards...meh.

    Rey's training... I don't think she was ever trained by Luke. Beside showing her how to breathe and get in touch with the Force, there isn't much wise master teaching the apprentice how to handle the sword really. Maybe that explains the bad fight sequences.

    The X-wings and spaceship sequences are stunning. WOW. They really know how to make those awesome.

    There's enough humour peppered around and they both tell the joke as well as the story, if that makes sense. But yea, funny without being lame.

    Though the message is too left-leaning and subversive. Going against the empire, hating arms-dealers, the oppressed rising up. C'on, that's dangerous. :D

    And they have a major Chinese supporting cast who speaks proper English, have a proper backstory and play a vital role in the movie. Disney's really pushing for the wide Chinese release with this one.

    American Made with Tom Cruise, really does show how crazy America is, entertaining movie apparently based on a true story.

    I liked the scene where he's digging a hole to bury a bag and finds another already there

    Six days, the story of the Iranian embassy seige in 1990.
    When politicians made decisions.
    Reasonably good re enactment.

    Darkest Hour.

    Not a bad movie. I guess that mean it's pretty good. Just a bit too cinematic if that makes sense.

    Too much play with lights and shadows it takes you out of the movie as portraying real life and into some sort of good-looking comic.

    Ridley Scott does these kind of stuff well.. here they overuse it. What is it... those dark scenes with one or two well lit light source. Using it in parliament house doesn't seem real.

    The ending seems unbelievable too. What with the King telling Churchill to go ask the people what they reckon about surrendering. Never! Never! Kinda like that Spartacus moment.

    No need for these kind of cinematic stuff when the story itself is fascinating.

    Gary Oldman is great. Haven't seen him this good since JFK or Immortal Beloved.

    A bit too many WW2 movies lately. Are we going to take on Russia soon or what?
