Rewatched Goodfellas, fantastic Film, but always though Ray Liotta made Henry Hill seem more likeable then he really was.

Ford vs Ferrari,  Looks fantastic,   some great actors in the line up and decent budget by the looks of it , and some lovely cars and soundtrack,  really looking forward to this one,  Think Christian Bale has had some voice coaching of the lead chap in the Peaky Blinders !

She also prefers women. I was gutted when she came out. However, if she's happy then fair dinkum.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

For a minute I thought she has 3 hands in that picture?

 

Not seen many films lately but surprise quality flicks x2 are Stan and Ollie, and Rocketman.

Stan and Ollie; well cast, well acted and some terrific makeup to make the 2 actors look spot on. If you have any background knowledge some of the dialogue between the 2 guys and spouses is spot on. The only shame is the supposed 15 year rift between the two (which has never been mentioned before) is overplayed for dramatic effect, but overall it's a very sweet and affectionate look at these incredibly modest 20th century icons.

Rocketman; I was expecting more truth and honesty with this film than the previous Freddie Mercury biopic, and that was mostly correct. Contrary to the surving members of Queen I don't think old Elton gives a stuff what people think of him back then or especially now. I admit after the credits when it became clear it was going to be a kind of musical I nearly walked out, but soon got drawn into the fun, fear and chaos. If Taron Egerton does not get an award for this film there is no justice.

Alita Battle Angel. Trailer below for those that don't know it. Mix of CGI and real actors. Brings me out in goosebumps watching the trailer again. I am a geeky Anime fanboy anyway but even for those not into Anime this is absolutely friggin amazing movie. If I could give it more I would 10/10 and then some!

Shazam!

The trailer looked fun and the film didn't disappoint. It felt like a cross between Toby McGuire's "Spiderman" and Tom Hank's "Big", which I think is a compliment.

As long as you wind yourself back to a child like level of expectation this is a nice feelgood movie for all the family (as long as the kids dont mind a few monster head-chomps).

My Wife and I saw Once upon a time in Hollywood yesterday, it was a great film, excellent acting and very amusing, though it did go on a bit in parts.  Watching it you really felt like you were in 1969 Hollywood.  Don’t know why it was an 18, the gory scenes were nothing on his previous films and looked almost comical. It’s definitely worth seeing.

Agree, we saw it last night. I was a bit cautious as QT has made as many stinkers as classics, but his films are always beautifully designed and crafted. As a longtime fan of midcentury design and architecture I was looking forward to his fastidious attention to detail into turning the world back to 1969 and was totally blown away.

I usually have an irrational dislike of modern period drama as I'm always spotting double glazing in Dickens plays or block paving in episodes of George Gently. However this was perfect from corner to corner of the widescreen, you can really see where love and money has been lavished. It's mesmerizing.

As regards the plot it did go on a little but the acting and casting was spot on; Leonardo giving us his usual twitching, simmering pent up energy whilst Brad in his grizzled but cool 50s still looks like the genetic blueprint for the male species (the bastard). I'm always a little edgy about  people re-writing history in movie storylines too, and QT is guiltier of this than most (i.e. Inglorious Basterds) but, without giving too much away, in this film it was hilarious and satisfying.

Its long and not for everyone but its the best thing I've seen in years.

My Wife's Aunt (who happens to be Irish) and her 2 Sisters went to see 'Once upon a Time in Hollywood'

Reported disappointment afterwards as they had expected a 'documentary style' romp through the ages and development of Hollywood.........

I kid you not!

Makes me wonder why film producers don't make trailers.........:wallbash:

...in the Library with the candlestick.

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.

I actually went to see it again; a friend with a spinal injury was given tickets and unsurprisingly didn't relish the thought of sitting for circa 3.5 hours inc ads and trailers....so we gave them a good home.😁

I enjoyed it even more second time around, as I don''t really like surprises, and once you had got QT's little plot quirks out of the way could concentrate even more on the staggering attention to detail and fantastic character performances.

Le Mans 66

Just got back. Go see it. Just do it. One of the best Films I’ve seen in years. 10/10 

A two and a half hour film but seemed like 60 minutes.

Just seen Le Mans 66 too.  Absolutely superb film.  Probably the best car movie I've ever seen.  And the on track racing and sounds were amazing.

Did spot a couple of errors, but that's only because I'm a car nerd.  During a presentation to Henry Ford in 1964 they showed the 1966 P3 Ferrari's, in the garage there were 20" rims on the 1965 Shelby Daytona's and Kumho tyres on an MGB.  But forget all that, a brilliant film.
