@nessisonett Well I don't know about "Mission Impossible" but the major plot twist in "SPECTRE" was straight out of "Austin Powers:Goldmember".

@kyleforrester87 If you decide to watch it then you'll see what I mean. It's pretty ludicrous, even for a Bond movie.

@kyleforrester87 He is Spectre! Sorry for the spoilers folks!

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

I quite like SPECTRE. It's no Skyfall, but it's got more of a traditional Bond feel (for better or worse, depending on your preference for such ridiculousness).

Saw it in IMAX and when that building collapses at the end, I thought the cinema was gonna follow suit.

The Cave

Decent cast unfortunately can't transform drab story into good film. Spelunkers investigate long-hidden caves, along with its long-hidden inhabitants.

The Quick and the Dead

Silly Western about a quick-draw competition with multiple storylines in play. Don't think about it too much, just sit back, have fun and enjoy the fantastic cast.

@JudgeDredd Apparently Raimi's signature Oldsmobile Delta cameo is (anachronistically) somewhere in "The Quick and the Dead" but I've never been able to spot it.

@JudgeDredd The Cave sounds very familiar to The Descent, which is one my faves from the era.

The Harder they Fall

Western revenge story. A little overacting here and there, it was a generally strong cast performance. Especially Idris Elba and Delroy Lindo. The soundtrack really didn't land for me but other than that I really enjoyed this one.

Outside the Wire

Drone pilot gets sent to the front lines after a disobeyed order results in collateral damage. There's a little more to it than that and it largely a study of humanity, as most war based films tend to be. Outstanding action sequences and solid acting (kind of. The kid was good. Anthony Mackie is a bit wooden) close the book on this one.

Watched Logan this morning. Been slowly watching the X-Men films in order, and while this one wasn't next on the list it isn't available on any of the paid streaming services I have & I noticed it popped up on one of the free ones (FreeVee), so I figured I should watch it while I got the chance.

Never seen it before, but it was pretty excellent (definitely brutal in a way the other Wolverine movies weren't).

@RR529 There's no doubt in my mind that it's the best of the "X-Men" movies. Definitely excited to see what James Mangold can bring to the "Indiana Jones" series.

personally X-men 2 is my favourite X-men film then probably X-men first class

RogerRoger

@trev666 Agreed, I think X-Men 2 is my favourite, as well. I also prefer The Wolverine over Logan, which isn't to say that the latter's a bad film, of course.

@RogerRoger X-Men 2 is probably the best movie that actually has the X-Men in it. I quite like Days of Future Past but it doesn’t really feel like it has a real team in it.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@nessisonett Never understood all the praise "X2" got. I think it just stands out in that original trilogy because Part One is so dull and Part Three is so stupid.

LN78

RogerRoger

@LN78 @nessisonett It's interesting, I always forget that Days of Future Past is a thing, and then when I'm reminded of its existence (like today, thank you both) I also remember really enjoying it. Perhaps it's because, as Ness says, it's not really what you'd call a "traditional" X-Men outing.

It's a really interesting series, because of that wildly fluctuating quality LN mentioned, that can hit both extremes in a single entry. Just such a shame that seeing Bryan Singer's name turns my stomach now.

@RogerRoger Between Bryan Singer and Brett Ratner, it’s a fairly tainted series all round. Probably more of a indictment of the industry at that time.

@nessisonett Sadly, that's very true. Gets even worse when you then think "well, let's try a DC film instead" and end up picking Superman Returns. Urgh.
