Vice

This follows the rise of Dick Chaney coming through the ranks to becoming the Vice President to George W.
This is the same director as The Big Short and it plays out very similarly in the sense that they explain everything he did and how he managed to actually get away with it. You're left thinking 'How the f*ck?'
Good cast and very well told but felt slightly long near the end.

8.5/10

The dark side.. And the light

Watched Anthropoid the other night, WW2 film about the Czech resistance's plans to assassinate the Nazi 3rd in command Reinhard Heydrich in Prague. 
Cillian Murphy & Jamie Dornan play leads. 
Very good
9/10
Some people just deserve a slap

The Green Book - 7/10

Viggo Mortensen plays an Italian-American who, while out of work, receives a job offer to drive a black musician around the deep south as he plays a series of gigs.

Would definitely recommend it. Great dynamic between the 2 characters. Mortensen's character is like a slightly more intelligent version of Homer Simpson, but is very entertaining.

Thought it was just ok - 
Very predictable and full of cliches.

Herself wanted to see this last night and that's how it came across in the trailers. 
We went to see 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?' instead. I knew the story, but they still told it well and Richard E. Grant showed us that Withnail never grew up, he just moved to New York! Really enjoyed it. 8/10
you were probably told to leave an Irish centre one night but kept mouthing off and some big church going Gaa player f**ked you out the door hence your hatred for the Catholic Church and Gaa aswell!

It's very well acted but the story is just so dull. 6/10 from me.

I think 7/10 for Green Book is fair. It's basically a buddy movie with a bit of the aul racism thrown in for good measure.

Dull? Really? I think it is absolutely fascinating! She made people think she was some of the greatest wits of all time. She was a genius!

I don't doubt the character's intelligence, and it was good to see Melissa McCarthy prove her worth as an actress, but yeah, the storyline itself didn't do much for me at all. I see that Overlord is available for streaming now. That, and A Private War, will be getting a look over the next few days.

Its watchable, probably because its an Irish film, but the storyline isn't great. You're sort of waiting for it to take off but nothing really happens until the end.
 
Its more like an educational documentary of why people should avoid getting involved in drugs.

Fair enough! My problem was that they didn't delve more into the letters and her talent. 
I hadn't heard of Overlord, but I just watched the trailer. I don't think it is for me! Going to watch Black KkKlansman over the next couple nights.

Overlord had me at Nazi zombies! BK is very good except for one (kind of odd) thing. I won't spoil it for you though.

I went to see 'If Beale street Could Talk' and was enjoying it when it ended. I don't want to ruin it for anyone, it is a good story brilliantly told and shot, but very rushed. 6/10

Cold Pursuit - 1/10

Seems to be the standard role for Liam Neeson these days, getting revenge on those who murdered or abducted a family member. 

One of the worst movies I've ever seen. Walked out after 40 minutes.

Leaving 'Schindler's List' aside of the debate, has he been any film that is worth watching the whole way through?

Bohemian Rhapsody 

3/5

I will split this into two sections

Queen fans will love this, it's a fantastic homage to their music and a truly brilliant film to pay homage to Freddie as a musician.

What brings it down for me is that that is what it is it focuses too much on the music and not enough on Freddie as the wild sex crazed coke fiend he was. It does allude to it alright but majority of the scenes are only either the start of the night or the day after, I'm not saying I wanted to see a lad getting rammed up the arse with his head in a mountain of coke but at least they could have made it better then a cheeky wink at someone across a room.

I believe this is why Sacha Baron Cohen was ousted for as this is what he wanted to tell, would it have been a better film? Who knows I will say one thing Rami Malek was fantastic and the Live Aid Concert was just amazing. Well worth a watch 

Great review. I seen it last night and that pretty much sums it up for me. I would give it 4/5 though because the music element was brilliant, they were great performances and the Wembley part left you feeling very satisfied at the end leaving the cinema.  The movie even got a clap from the people in attendance which I never see at cinema's here. 



Bit inappropriate to give the film the clap 
AKA pedantic kunt
