The Imitation Game (2014): 8/10
Can't believe I only just saw this film but as someone who loves history it was a really enjoyable watch. Benedict was really great as Alan Turing and the film got very emotionally intense as it went on.
The Babysitter: Killer Queen (2020) 3/10
Lame rehash of the first film, this time more of a teen comedy with lame jokes. As I thought taking Samara Weaving out for most of the film makes it less interesting.
Ju-on the Curse (2000) 6/10
Decent first film in the very long Grudge franchise.
Interesting slasher movie with a satirical edge and decent style. Its let down by the final act which is just over blown and melodramatic. The violence becomes less shocking as it goes on. Worth a watch.
Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) - 7.5/10
I'm saying it this might be the most excellent adventure yet Dudes! It was really entertaining, and charming, with the positive feel good message the world needs right now. If you've never seen a Bill & Ted film you maybe lost (then again if you haven't what have you've been doing with your lives? ), but for the fanbase this delivered in spades! I loved the callbacks to Bogus Journey and the Grim Reapers cameo. William Sadler is the boss! The casting was great, with Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine great as the daughters. I would be down for a spin-off film with them as the leads. It ROCKED!!
Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991) - 6.5/10
Always had a soft spot for this sequel even if its weird and doesn't always seem like a Bill & Ted film. I have found memories of rocking out to my cassette of the soundtrack.
This film is on Amazon Prime in the UK. What a compelling, powerful and unsettling film it is. Brilliantly acted, with some important questions asked. Its a skillfully put together satire too. Might be one of the most important films of our times.
One of the cheapest and lamest slasher movies I've seen. Its edited together like a stoner's home movie. There's a character called TP and HE HAS BELT BUCKLE WITH TP ON IT!! The cheesy love scene with him and his girlfriend is just insane! And the music could have been produced by a five year old. Still it was so silly it was oddly fun.
Enola Holmes (2020) - 8/10
A charming film, really. A 7 for most of it, then raised up a point for the last third as everything comes together. It was two hours long and that was a great idea because they managed to pad that time with so much, without making it feel like there was too much happening. Unsurprisingly, Millie Bobby Brown was excellent and it was nice to finally hear her in a role with her natural English accent. I definitely wouldn't mind a sequel, as it's sure to get.
(Re-Watch) Sorority Row (2009) - 6/10
It's a guilty pleasure of mine and fun to watch on occasion. It had been so long that I'd legit forgotten who the killer was
(I love old Westerns) John McIntyre hires Robert Taylor to guide a wagon train of 150 women across the country to California to be wives for the all male community there. Totally dated, and any of the SJW crowd would go apoplectic watching it, but if you like the old standard B&W shoot-em-ups the way that I do, it's well worth the trouble to hunt it down. If you do choose to see it, just remember, I first saw in as a first run movie in the theater.
Did I ever mention that I'm the oldest member of this merry band of Buffy-ites? And I'm also a first generation Trekkie. Heck, I even wore a coon skin cap back in the '50's when Fess Parker was King of the Wild Frontier.
Iron Man 2 (2010) 7/10
Better than I remembered it. Gets better on rewatches once you’ve seen the later Phase 1 MCU films. A bit bland but decent enough sequel. Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke steak every scene they’re in. It’s just missing something that made the original movie so great.
