      Get the feeling a lot of people have overreacted to what he was trying to say, a lot of it was stuff he had tweeted in the past and was retweeting to show how attitudes & opinions can change over a few years.

      Honestly, I can understand the "overreaction", I certainly find it very disturbing now that I have 2 girls (2 and 4). With how Hollywood is, I wouldn't be surprised if he meant those tweets and is part of some paedophile network.

      Anyone here seen, I Saw The Devil? Watched it last night and was shocked! Very brutal and disturbing film, but I thoroughly enjoyed it!

      Absolutely brilliant movie.

      Manages to successfully mix multiple genres horror, thriller, action, mystery in to one thrillingly disturbing cat and mouse chase.

      The film is probably on par with Infernal Affairs, Heat and Seven for me.

      Anyway, gonna watch, The Wailing this weekend. Recommended by a friend and supposedly one of the best Horror films!

      Saw it few months back mate. Not bad but I think you would need to know about Korean lore to get a lot of the symbolism but it's definitely worth a watch very creepy in parts.

      Watched Bill Forsyth's Local Hero last night for the first time after years of intending to watch it.

      Not a single bad bone in that film. Very funny, very sweet and heartfelt that gets under your skin (like the Scottish seaside village itself!) in a very good way. Wonderful!

      Brilliant film from a brilliant director,if you've not seen it yet try & watch one of his other films 'housekeeping' which I thought was also brilliant & his directorial gem 'that sinking feeling'.

      Just back from MI-Fallout.
      Hadn't been to the flics to see the previous couple of MIs, but heard this one was good, so went along.
      Henry Cavill was good, and Sean Harris, and Vanessa Kirby - they get good cast.
      Action scenes just keep stepping up, hard to know how films like this can keep upping the bar.
      I must be getting on, cause though I enjoyed it, I was knackered after 140 mins of action :)
      Tom is getting on too, not sure how much longer he can pull the role off.
      Still, its a solid popcorn blockbuster, with a decent twist or two.

      Roll on the footy Sunday...

      Went to see The Meg last night. Liked it for what it was; some terrible acting and dialogue but good fun.

      Re-watching Smokin Aces tonight.

      Decided to re-watch Akira and Perfect Blue, what f**king masterpieces, anyone else seen them? Another exceptional Anime film is, You Name. Give them a shot if you haven't seen them!

      Watched that ages ago, just seemed utter sh*te and the usual Hollywood response to incidents like what happened in Tunisia.

      This has apparently debuted to massive standing ovations and some brilliant first impressions from Cannes. Equally funny and harsh commentary on the current climate, they say. Going by the trailer below, I can't f**king wait.

      'Ballers' fans will certainly recognise John David Washington, but for those who don't know - Denzel's kid. Looking like he could have a damn fine career ahead of him as well.

      Went to an advanced of this last week.

      Absolutely brilliant.

      Calibre.

      A Scottish movie that I thought was really good. Dark in places, but good.

      Just watched that recently myself. Great acting, very tense. Certainly makes you have that conversation about morals with yourself, because it really does spiral.

      Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was on earlier on BBC 2. Love it, in fact I love it so much that I think it's better than Raiders.

      Just watched Baby Driver again.

      Easily one of my favourite films from last year.
      Watched that the other day for the first time. Very good film.

      Finally watched, Solo. Not too bad and it actually felt like a Star Wars movie unlike that sh*t, TLJ. Only negative was L3 and Lando's relationship with the droid which was a bit odd, but other than that, I enjoyed it!

      MI:Fallout has to be on par, if not better than the first one. Great movie and really really really liked Cavill's performance in it!

      Quite impressed by this one and the one before it, Rogue Nation I think.
