Avatar sequels delayed yet again due to plans to make 4 movie simultaneously. "Well, 2018 is not happening,” Cameron told The Star. “We haven’t announced a firm release date. What people have to understand is that this is a cadence of releases. So we’re not making ‘Avatar 2.’ We’re making ‘Avatar 2, 3, 4 and 5.’"

Five Avatar movies... Wasn't one enough? One too many more like it. How many times does he have to delay them to give up and admit they've gone the way of his Dark Angel movie that some people are still waiting for?

Better off Dead. John Cusack is a high school teenager so obsessively in love with his girlfriend that he flirts with the idea of suicide after she just casually dumps him for a local ski champion. Between coping with his mom's cooking, the sweet French foreign exchange student living with his creepy neighbours, and a malevolent and relentless paperboy, he ultimately decides to challenge his rival to a suicidal-in-itself ski competition down a notoriously "untameable" nearby mountain... This mid 80s comedy is irreverent, off the wall and frequently hilarious. Great fun from start to finish, this was once a frequent rewatch but I hadn't seen it for about 11 years for some reason, but it's still as great as ever. The DVD did a couple of weird things a couple of times, though, so I think a Blu ray upgrade is both warranted and deserved. I think my fave side character is Vincent Schiavelli's impossibly charismatic maths teacher, who genuinely has his entire class rivetted to his every (incomprehensible) uttering. Genius! LOL
When was the last time Hollywood made a comedy as funny as this? Answers on a postcard... No

It's not enough my local cinema often chooses to skip films I would have gone to see, now my local video shop does it too! Doesn't look like they're getting Train to Busan at all. So if I want to see it, I have to blind buy it, basically.

The '88 Blob remake which is vastly superior to the original in every way except one. It doesn't have the "Nobody here except us monsters" line which is so oddly beautiful.

I went and saw Kong: Skull Island tonight. It was alright. The directing, sense of scale and cinematography were all spot on but the characters were flat and there were a lot of set pieces with a minimal amount of plot and Samuel L. Jackson’s character’s motivation was so implausible it really undermined the film for me. Mark Kermode’s review made me thought there might be something more there with the Vietnam War motif but it was just a straight action film about giant monsters fighting.

And there were a lot of those. Giant spiders, stick insects, water buffalo and snake/lizard things for Kong to smash heads in with a rock. Everybody seemed to want revenge and Kong and the Giant Lizard thing seemed to be placed in some clumsy religious subtext with Kong as god and the Lizard snake as the Devil.

At the end of the first scene, John C. Riley’s character stops a Japanese pilot impaling him on his sword by grabbing the blade with his hands. I never expected something other than the giant monsters to give me trouble suspending my disbelief, but thankfully, the film got better.

If you like action films then this would be good to see. I am not really a fan of them, to be honest, and this is borderline generic. I felt it was quite average.

There's action films and there's modern action films, which largely suck.

Train to Busan. A workaholic, distant father is taking his little girl on a bullet train to see her mother (his ex-wife) when a zombie outbreak kicks off (hate it when that happens Razz ) and they soon find themselves on an express train ride to Hell. Exciting and scary South Korean action-horror, though it perhaps goes on a bit too long.

‘Hidden Figures’ Earned More In The U.S. Than ‘X-Men’ And ‘Star Trek’
Evidence that atypical stories (for Hollywood, anyway) are definitely worth telling.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. One of the best action flicks of the decade, this excellent flick, probably the best of the series, was just as enjoyable on second viewing as it was at the cinema.

Saw Beauty and the Beast at the cinema today. To be perfectly honest I was a bit on the skeptical side, as it's not really my usual cup of tea, and yet, for all of that, I actually generally really enjoyed it. One or two of the songs had my rolling my eyes and went on a bit too long but for the most part it was really, really fun. Emma Watson being gorgeous throughout didn't exactly hurt either, but overall I had a really good time with this, and somewhat unexpectedly so at that. Smile

I don't care for Disney films in general so I won't bother with Beauty and the Beast, but I did watch the review from the Double Toasted guys and they thought the film was around half an hour too long and that some new songs were some of the worst parts of the movie.

How many new songs were there, and did they fit in with the songs from the original?

I liked it. It feels very different from any other X-Men film

The new Jumanji wont' feature characters trapped in a board game, now they've gone the "Captain N" and "Tron" route and trapped them in a video game

Well I was going to see Life this week (Monday was out as I saw B&TB then) but yesterday the cinema was closed due to the cyclone (which didn't come here in the end) and today at least one session has been cancelled because the screen's bust! Suspect Big Grin

Life
. Gravity meets Alien in this sci-fi horror flick starring Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson and Jake Gyllenhaal. A team on the International Space Station are studying samples from Mars when they find a living organism among them - a microscopic single-cell life form that confirms the existence of life elsewhere in the universe. Of course, being that sort of movie, it doesn't stay microscopic for long... This is a terrific, intense, exciting and scary SF chiller that I really enjoyed. Goodness me, I can't remember the last time I went to the cinema twice in one week - and really enjoyed them both!
This is going to ruin my reputation as a grumpy old fart. Big Grin
