Probably the worst one in the series - Sid James wasn’t even in it! 

Just watched this Film available now on Netflix. Superb. Highly recommended. Very Inspirational and a must for anyone who even slightly enjoys Motor Racing.   Uppity   https://youtu.b

Kingsman. Surprisingly one of my films of the last 12 months. Exciting action, brilliant storyline, acting was excellent and it was also very funny at the right time!

 

Absolutely loved every second of it 9.5/10

Saw Mad Max: Fury Road this thursday, and was genuinely blown away. I'm a huge fan of the originals (especially The Road Warrior) and can say that George Miller delivered with gusto. He's worked in elements of all three of his earlier trilogy into the new one which makes it feel familiar, while the cinematography and screenplay trump anything from any of the original films - the lack of Mel Gibson aside, I'd say the latest is the best of the lot. 

 

The way he presents and develops certain characters is also quite refreshing in that he isn't afraid to march to the beat of his own drum and disregard "Hollywood ethics" when need be. Lastly (this has been spoken about to some degree) but he deserves kudos for casting a particularly strong female lead in the movie and creating a character who the viewer can respect on her own merits rather than her physical appearance (and it would have been easy to rely on the latter considering it's Charlize Theron....).

 

I strongly recommend it. 9/10.

I just finished American Sniper. This man was something else.

 

His funeral was bigger than you can imagine.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

San Andreas.

No actual story. It's not as if you don't know what's going to happen. Special effects ok.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Jurassic World - on par with "The Lost World" (make of that what you wish) - ticked all the right boxes in my book.

I find this difficult to mention..............

 

Watched "Teenage mutant Ninja Turtles" last night and........oh dear.......I really enjoyed it. Now, in my defence it was after half a bottle of Whiskey, but I thought it was enjoyable, if a little predictable. 7/10.

 

Also watched "Last Knights" with Morgan Freeman and Clive Owen. Rip roaring fantasy romp that was slow to get going but a good movie nonetheless. 7.5/10

San Andreas with the Rock, "Dwaine "I didn't think about the plot" Johnson".

I...............oh.

We............hmmmm.......

Spoiler alert (not that you will want to see it after this)

Lost for words. What a complete and utter load of Shity, crappy, time wasting, nacker hurting, knob poop! Not only did they destroy my idea that any disaster movie is good as long as the special effects are up to standard, they hacked and cut till the movie was just plain ridiculous.

Premise is that the Rock is a hero Helicopter pilot with the LA search and rescue. When there is a world shattering earth quake of a magnitude "never seen before" first his wife and then his daughter need rescueing. Great! Sounds good. Only it's not. His character is ridiculous. How can you be a hero rescue pilot and leave all those people to die going for rescueing just your wife from the top of a building instead of multitudes? And just when you are really needed what do you do? Fly off in the Company rescue Chopper and go rescue just your daughter with your wife along for company! AND you crash the bloody thing because of your incompetence!!! Not only does that make you an awful human being, you would have been arrested on return and spent the rest of your days in prison for negligence! Not to mention the looting you do, stealing a bloody pickup and driving past people stranded on the road when you had plenty of space! Then....THEN....you give an old man your pickup, which is stolen and probably get him shot for stealing a truck!!

Add in the fact that at the beginning you say to a reporter about your rescue crew "We were a team in the middle east and Afghanistan and didn't want to split up the team, so here we are" then at the first opportunity you dump them and forget all about them!!!

Then, the movie makes it all worse by skipping over much of the destruction and millions of lives lost (including Kylie Bloody Minogue....you basteds!!!) and it's all yay! America is great, lets fly the flag from whats left of the golden gate bridge and cheer, despite the multi millions of people who have been killed. Many of who could have been saved by the Rock, if he hadn't been fixated on saving 2 people!!!

The disaster special effects are good but skipped over too lightly. After the Tsunami hits that literally wipes out most lives in San Francisco (even the high rises collapse) there's not a single body, and to make it doubly ridiculous, they rescue their daughter by driving a speed boat through the city, with masses of debris (how does the engine/prop not get damaged?) probably driving over survivors and drive it through a toughened glass sky scraper window......only the Speedboat is an INFLATABLE YOU IDIOTS!!! It would bloody bounce off ARGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!

(minus) -10/10 a truly horrible experience  only livened up by my wife and myself laughing at the ridiculousness of the story and terrible acting. Only positive is that Kylie is in it, albeit briefly!

Unbroken - It's on sky movies now, hard to watch but what a story of human endurance. Very humbling.
