Still haven’t seen The Last Jedi.


Didn’t realise Upgrade had actually come out here. Just checked the Cineworld site and the only place they’re showing it in London is Enfield :expressionless:

I loved this


you are right, he has the dates wrong. it’s not out yet

Sorry guys, obviously it should say 7th September/14th September in the first post, I was clearly still half-asleep this morning

Has Juliet, Naked been released in the UK yet? There’s a scene at the end where Ethan Hawke is the double of @Bamnan.


Cold War

Jeez, and I thought the characters in Succession were unlikeable.

Ah well look out for a cameo from bam then

Climax is utterly horrible but also kind of brilliant

Just remembered this is also out on the 7th (probably in a couple of Showcases and not much else)


Is this the film where they literally blew up Upton Park?

The trailer looks horrendous (brilliant).


Apparently so!

I’m sure it will be a great film, like all Sky Cinema Originals.

Next week at the cinema I should see

  • Touch of Evil
  • The Trial (Welles does Kafka)
  • 2001 (seen before but also a 70mm print)

Today I saw Alpha and Searching.

Alpha is an odd one. It seems to have been released as a kids film (summer holidays release, mostly daytime screenings) but (a) it’s quite intense in places and (b) it’s all in some fictional ancient language and subtitled into English. Enjoyed it a lot, though. Just a nice, simple film. Good dog. Nice cinematography.

Searching was excellent. I don’t really want to say anything more about it because I think you need to go in essentially blind. But it’s really good. Definitely one to see in a halfway busy screen, as well.

Thought Searching was pretty good, though it maybe throws one too many twists into the mix. The opening few minutes got me a bit emotional as my mother died of cancer too. I fell for the red herring about Margot’s teacher that they have in the opening conversation between Margot and her father

i would say Touch of Evil

2001 would be amazing but it seems to be on at cinemas quite a lot

The Trial is decent but TOE is better
