Thought Baby Driver was good but Edgar Wright showing off his music taste was a tacked on gimmick that didnt work. Wouldve been better if they didnt soundtrack every part of it. Good to see and hear Jon Spencer in it. Killer Mike is in for a wordless 5 aeconds. Flea is in it which knocks a point off it

Seeing this on Friday but that is my main concern from the trailer. Truly loathe films that are performative with their soundtracks. It wasn’t cool when Zach Braff did it so everyone else should be judged by those same standards as well.


#2008

Mechanic: Resurrection - absolute piss, didn’t make sense, Jessica Alba’s character was pointless, awful special effects. Tommy Lee Jones was in it for all of 5 minutes. Stath looked bored, but he did some of that fighting lark okay.

Still better than Alien Fucking Covenant though, because at least M:R made me laugh on 2 separate occasions.


#2009

It does fade half way through but it works so much better as an old fashioned action caper. A few songs here and there are okay but certainly tonstart its constant

watched hell or high water the other night, thought it was pretty good. quite a lean well shot & acted film. chris pine’s eyes, man he’s pretty.
great soundtrack

Whoa, are you slating Back to the Future now? :frowning:


#2013

Never seen it


#2014

I stand by this though.


#2015

see also Christopher Ecclestone as John Lennon in a BBC Drama thing

Comfortably one of the worst things I’ve ever seen on TV - just comically miscast

By my calculations he was about 45, playing Lennon in his late 20s/ early 30s

great movie - rewatched it on Netflix the other day.


#2017

The sequel we’ve all been waiting for


#2018

sort of wish The Rock would just fuck off nowadays


#2019

He’s just been made an academy member!


#2020

Also tbh I’d rather he’s making shitty movies than ruining WWE because I can ignore him a lot easier there


#2021

Oh…yay


#2022

quentin tarrantino films do it well because he picks good music (fuck off)

thought the music in baby driver was mostly shite so it kinda ruined it. like, i get that the style of it is the whole point of the film but the music is so prominent that if you don’t like it you’re fucked.


#2023

It’s part of an effort to diversify if that helps


#2024

I was going to watch Aquarius today. Ended up watching Suicide Squad. It was not a good idea.

Fucking terrible film. Assumed it would be a ‘so bad it’s good’ type film but it was bafflingly shit.

EDIT: oops lol
