      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.

      Really??

      Just back from it. As a Predator piss take movie it was funny in parts.

      As an actual Predator movie it was laughably bad one of the most cringe worthy scripts I've seen committed to screen.

      Dutch must be rolling in his grave.

      Hence why I said it's alright. Just something to watch to pass the time. It's not the worst film I've seen and can't be any worse than them horrific Alien Vs Predator movies. At least director Shane Black, who was actually in the first movie has tried to tie them in with the other two.

      Yea I appreciate he tried to expand on the predator universe and copied the music and a few signature shots and lines from the original.

      But my god was Black way off the mark with the tone and script. He may as well have made a flat out screwball spoof comedy like Spaceballs as it was closer to that then the original Predator.

      I did laugh at a few of the one liners but as someone who loves the original it's an unmitigated disaster as a sequel.

      Just finished The Post and found it very average.

      It was clearly a tense time for the Washington Post but watching you didn't feel that at all.

      I actually enjoyed it more than I expected to as well. It really nailed the look and feel of MMO's and felt very immersive. That Shining scene was incredible.

      I'm reliably informed by my lad that the things I kept pointing out and laughing at are called Easter Eggs.
      Not being a big gamer, I didn't really hear the term before, but little touches like the battle scene where the asian guy "Transforms" he was coming out of a Firefly class spaceship (I loved Firefly).

      Very enjoyable :)

      Yeah I went to see it with the missus in the cinema reluctantly, but really enjoyed it in the end.

      Going to see A Star is Born with the missus.

      Not usually the type of movie I'd be bothered with but so tired of repetitive superhero and star wars movies I'm actually looking forward to seeing a movie with good acting and a storyline for a change.

      I do like the odd chick flick once in a while :D Although I am not sure if A Star is Born is considered one? But from the trailer, I am leaning more towards chick flick!

      Didn't expect much, but thought it was pretty good. Watched it again since.
      A no nonsense, solid western.

      I heard everyone is blubbing by the end of it. Supposed to be good though.

      Watched Captain America:Civil War and really enjoyed it.

      Am planning on catching up on the Marvel universe after watching the Avengers, Infinity War and not having a clue what was going on as haven’t watched a Marvel movie in so long.

      I was very disappointed with it mate as was herself. Massively overrated not much of a story very cliched and the Gaga acting is ok at best. Some of the music and concert scenes were good but I expected much more given all the hype. Ending was extremely contrived as well to try force a tear but it rang hollow for me.

      Just back from Bohemian Rhapsody.

      Fantastic and one of the best of the year for me. Rami Malek really captures Freddie, which isn't easy for such an iconic man, but he was unreal.

      Builds up to the Live Aid performance and sat with goosebumps during it tinged with sadness that he died so young.

      Don't listen to the critics and go and see it.
