Rocketman

That was great. I enjoyed that a lot more than Bohemian Rhapsody. More of a musical than a traditional biopic.

8/10

Edit - The Mrs and I were talking about Rocketman v Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. It is fascinating to find a film that had almost nothing to say but to say it well, with a lot of fun and sympathy against a film that had a lot to say and could have been fascinating but to say it with pretentiousness and borderline tedium.

Right
*cracks fingers*

"It" double bill.
Part 1
Still sucks. A collection of great scenes held together by nothing. Its rushed, it doesnt earn any scares or any feels. The entire film is Hi I'm a kid OHSHITACLOWNx7 then We all seen a killer clown? LETS GO KILL THE CLOWN. The end. Theres no real character building or arc it just goes from 0-100. Also Pennywise redesign is dumb. He becomes a clown to entice kids to him, he does not become an evil clown as his main form for every encounter because Richie has a fear of clowns.

Part 2
Kind of more of the same but with old actors. They all go out, have an experience then rush into the final fight. I really wanted them to do Bev and her husband well but they did it in the lamest way possible, a bit like how they made the rock fight in part 1 utter pants. Id say it was really dissapointing but after really not liking part 1 I'm not sure what I was expecting. It ends in a fairly lame way but then the book may have a shall we say divisive ending (running joke throughout)
Theres also flashbacks to their younger self and I'm 99% sure the kids are CG or at least deaged which looks so off it almost looks dubbed.

"It" needs a TV series at some point. Let the characters breathe, grow and earn their destiny. 10-12episodes doing the concurrent timeline since thats not been done yet. It could be real good.



Crawl
Theres a bad storm, theres gators in the house and shes trapped. Its pretty standard, the main girl has bionic limbs which are impervious to gator bites while everyone around her is maimed and killed. I wouldnt bother.



Scary Stories To See In The Dark
Most definitely the best flick of the week. Its mostly cliched to hell and back but it has that Del Toro charm

I am so jealous of you Alan, you have
a) the time
b) a membership card that you are completely hammering

Although you are seeing a lot of shit that I would not even bother my time with

Atomic Blonde

An MI6 agent gets sent to Berlin days before the Wall comes down to investigate stuff and reasons. Truth be told by the midpoint of the film I'd forgotten what it was about. By no means a bad film just a bit forgettable.

Fight scenes are fucking brutal and Charlize Theron gets the bejesus kicked out of her multiple times. The action is sparse but very well done with great 80's tunes playing. Charlize Theron is also stunningly hot in this, in reality she'd be a shit spy as everyone would be looking at her.

Hustlers
I grunt when I have to get up off the couch and Jen Lopez is spinning round a stripper pole like it aint no thing at 50! :shock: The film is pretty standard and concludes in a bit of a wet squib but it wasnt bad. Its an apparently true story about some pole dancers that turned to ripping guys off after the financial crash drys up strip clubs. Had a few chuckles. Cardi B and Lizzi have bit parts and for some reason (or no reason) Usher turns up at some point for 30 seconds to throw some cash around to prove how relevant he is in 2019 I guess......
