    Watched Children of Men after all the recommendations in the sci-fi thread. Was ok. Although i havent read it, I got the impression that they were trying to present a preserved film version of the book, where the imagery and scenes are conveyed closely to how they are written, rather than being reimagined for a film. I think this would be a great book to read but I was a bit underwhelmed tbh. 6/10

    Interstellar

    7/10

    This was pretty good. Without revealing anything, the ending was not very satisfying. High quality scifi movie but not a classic for me.

    Even though the ending may have been a little unrealistic, I didn't have a problem with it. I wish the director had shot it in 3D IMAX though. It would have been so much better in the theaters.

    Calm With Horses (2020)
    Gritty Irish movie about a former boxer working as an enforcer for a local crime family and trying to connect with his autistic son and estranged missus. It started with a lot of promise, I enjoyed it but it just felt a bit flat. Nothing major happened really, the soundtrack is sweet though (Blanck Mass, a favourite of mine).
    6/10

    9/10

    Brilliant. About halfway through i remembered it was shot in 1 take and then i tried to follow the camera work but quickly got swallowed up by the narrative again. May have to rewatch this one. I think that there are better war movies in cinema history but this definitely deserves a place in some kind of all time list.

    Watcher Fisher King, moving and sensible movie about bad luck, coincidence, uncontrollable results of our behavior (in the good and bad) and human emotions.
    I'm allways torn about the intense acting of Robin Williams, the figures were too stereotypical and predictable in their development,
    the plot was somehow washed out and the whole "Holy Grail" episode comical.
    I still liked it for the delivery of strong emotions, failure and reformation aspects and general positive notion even if life hits hard.
    Besides all the critique the movie was still able to move me a little bit so it's a 7/10 from me.

    What! That movie is hilarious. It only gets better after the 20 min mark as well. Maybe you just aren’t into the Ben Stiller style comedies ala Something about Mary and Dodgeball

    Pretty much right on all accounts. First was underwhelming, but it was a b-movie project with a budget of $400k total. Similar movie making story to Evil Dead. And in both cases became a hit. The 2nd and 4th are amazing films, and the 3rd is weird but kinda fun.

    I liked something about Mary and meet the fockers movies, I've only seen a bit of dodgeball and it seemed alright. This one seemed more like Zoolander which I didn't like either

    You do realize it wasn’t shot in “one take” right?

    Just remember hearing about it but yeah should really be 'Filmed to give the effect of one continuous shot'. They did a great job executing this concept.

    This is unacceptable. Tropic thunder is one of the greatest comedies of all time.

    Vacation (1983)

    Still an all time classic comedy. Classic Chevy Chase. Prime Christie Brinkley.

    9/10 - "A"

    Tokyo Godfathers

    8/10

    Japanese animated adventure following the journey of an abandoned baby around Tokyo, after being found by three homeless people on Christmas Eve. The film gives the impression of animation laid over a photographic backdrop of the city, immersing you into the world of the characters as they guide you their version of Tokyo. Im not big into the genre but have seen a few, and this was a good one - an enjoyable watch.
