I'm confused. Did you like it or not? Stop beating around the bush and say what you really think, man!

Murder on the Orient Express. No, not the uber-modern version with Kenneth Branagh, the original 70s flick with Albert Finney as Hercule Poirot. A stellar cast including Sean Connery, Lauren Bacall, Anthony Perkins, Ingrid Bergman and others line up to get a grilling from the Belgian detective when a businessman with a false identity gets murdered on the famous train. Beautifully made old school fun.

Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie: Very entertaining follow-up to the 1990s animated series. Was surprisingly dark for a kids network film at 7PM, with heart-wrenching moments and character deaths, and it provides fans with adequate closure on the Arnold/Helga love story, with the two beginning a relationship that Word of God states many a time lasts their entire lives.

Having enjoyed this when I was growing up there didn't seem to be much point in going to see the Branagh remake (surely the problem with many of these projects?). Except to see if they needed the wide shot just to get all of his glorious moustache on screen...

Wild Beasts. PCP in the water supply makes animals very, very angry in this ludicrous but insanely entertaining mid 80s German horror flick, and it's not long before wild animals from a local zoo escape and go on a mad rampage in a city. There's some terrible acting and dialogue, but this barmy "animals attack!" movie is an absolute fricking hoot nonetheless, complete with some lunatic set-pieces (a tiger on a subway train, a cheetah pursuing a speeding car, a polar bear stalking kids in a school) I've certainly never seen before. What a riot! Big Grin LOL

Parents. A quiet, withdrawn little boy seems paranoid and obsessed with the idea that his 1950s picture book perfect suburban parents are hiding dark secrets - secrets somehow connected to the endless supply of "leftovers" that end up on his plate at every mealtime. Randy Quaid stars in this seriously bizarre but rather wonderful late 80s darkly comic horror flick that is a true surreal cult gem. Incredibly strange but hypnotically compelling and even genuinely frightening at times.

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. A long time ago in a galaxy far far away comes a long, bloated and extremely underwhelming sequel full of inconsistencies and side stories that accomplish nothing and add nothing to the main plot.

After 'The Force Awakens' played it too safe and effectively remade 'A New Hope', The Last Jedi puts so much effort into doing the unexpected it forgets to be entertaining. I might write a full spoiler-filled review in the Star Wars thread but to keep it short I'll just say that it wasn't very good.

I liked it  in parts (I'm a guilty Rylo 'shipper so anything with them was brilliant), but it was just a "bunch of stuff that happened", and, worse, it ends in such a way where you do not need a third film at all.

And don't get me started on Carrie Poppins

I was keeping up with Ian's films, but this Space Wars flick seems a bit obscure for me...

I don't get into shipping of any kind but the Rey and Kylo do play off each other well and their scenes were pretty good. Their little co-op fight against the guards was good (despite the fact both of them seem to forget they could easily wreck all of them with the force) and the twists with them were interesting even if some were stupid or caused problems.

The Leia scene was one of those scenes so bad you almost want to laugh out loud.

I just have no interest in these movies, despite loving the OT as a kid (I haven't even seen them for 20 years). I did rent Rogue One, and turned it off in complete and utter disinterest within 30 minutes...

Rogue One is one of my favourite Star Wars movies but it does jump around different planets and characters too much at the start. I can see why it didn't hook you in if you already don't care much about the franchise.

You're probably right not to. I think you and several others posted in the Star Wars thread about milking the cash cow and they didn't even try to hide it in The Last Jedi in an almost meta scene where Luke Skywalker milks a giant space creature and drinks its green milk (blue milk has already been done so they have to make it different) while mugging at the camera.

Blade Runner 2049. An amazing science fiction noir-inspired detective story. It managed to recreate the word perfectly and the effects were nothing short of flawless. 15 minutes or so of the 2 hour 40+ minute runtime could have been trimmed but it was still an enjoyably bleak experience.

The Belko Experiment. A group of office workers find themselves trapped inside their corporate building and told by a mysterious voice to kill a certain amount of their colleagues - or they'll all die. Initial incredulity soon turns to fear, panic, and eventually, inevitably - violence. And you thought your colleagues were bad! This 2017 horror thriller was way better than I expected, with a strong cast, chilling premise and very fine execution that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. I really enjoyed this! Big Grin
