      Wind River.
      I'm not a huge fan of Renner I'll admit, but this is easily his best since The town & The Hurt Locker. For me  he is much more suited to this smaller kind of role, and he played the hunter/tracker well I thought & Elizabeth Olsen was also well cast.
      I also enjoyed the fact it didn't play out quite how I thought it was going to. I found it a nice change that Sheridan avoided the cliche I was certain it was heading toward at the climax, and the penultimate scene to that took me by surprise as well. There were definite shades of Hell or High Water in this film but that's is certainly not a bad thing at all given that that was one of 2016's best films.
      Absolutely one to watch it you haven't already. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

      Off to Black Panther advanced screening in Adelaide in a few hours. I have a fair bit of comic movie fatigue, but have to admit I'm excited by this one. My wife has been pumped for this for a year or so, can't deny the importance of these kind of movies to people of colour, minorities etc. We can take it for granted sometimes, but seeing a hero you can associate yourself with is incredibly important to people.

      Banging soundtrack with this one as well.

      Verdict: Awesome.

      My favourite MCU film to be honest.

      Also saw Insidious: The Last Key after since we were already there, made for a nice fun double-feature date night :D That was fine, quite creepy and some good scares in there, but certainly will hopefully be the end for that franchise (unless they find a fresh angle). I've enjoyed the story of Elise but it has run its course now, and the way they wrapped it up was nice and I think they see it that way as well.

      The 15:17 to Paris is the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. Utter.... UTTER sh*te. Clint Eastwood couldn't even save this. Nothing happens and then everyone goes 'MURICA' at the end. Garbage. It's based on a true story but they got the actual people who experienced it to act it out. Turns out they can't act for sh*t... Shocking!

      Honestly, it ended and I turned to my mate next to me and just went 'that was sh*te!' the guy behind me chipped in to agree. 5 or 6 people walked out and there were only 20 people in there to start.

      ....

      Comfy seats in the cinema mind you :P

      Not yet mate.

      To be honest after Doctor Strange I've developed a bit of Marvel fatigue but I do plan on seeing it at some point.

      Best superhero film I've seen lately, and by some distance, was Logan.

      Haven't seen it, but Clint is pretty hit and miss.
      Sully was like watching paint dry  (the plane crash was a decent like 3 mins)
      Will skip this one too I think.

      Saw 'Logan' the other night.
      Not a 'mutants' fan, but the hard drinking and violence overcame :)
      Good movie.

      Eastwood is exactly as you say, hit and miss, and like you I thought Sully was one of the most boring films I've seen in a while.

      I didn't even finish watching Invictus
      But Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River - he can smash it out of the park on his day too,

      Letters from Iwo Jima? Thought that was a belter. Though the companion film from the US perspective, Flags of our Fathers, I found pretty boring.

      Haven't seen Unforgiven yet which is annoying as it's been one I've been intending on catching for years!

      Yep Letters From Iwo Jima is a far superior film to Flags Of Our Fathers.

      Agreed re Letters from Iwo Jima.

      Unforgiven is superb - Gene Hackman towering.

      Three Billboards wins the Best Film Bafta.

      Was hoping it would but didn't think Bafta would go for it so delighted and pleasantly surprised.

      I would not let that dissuade you. Political tones because they're integral to the story, but the action and the characters are equally as awesome. I absolutely loved it. Best Marvel film there's been. Definitely powerful.

      Quite excited for this one. Rogue One was stellar, hoping the stand alone stories really kick on because there's so much there to potentially tell.
