Watched Sicario last night, exceptional film , great performances from Blunt, Broliin and Del Torro, sequel out  in cinema at the minute as well
Really? I thought it was average. I thought the director strangely put Blunt at the centre of the film but then made her character largely weak. The performances were good but it didn't leave a lasting impression on me, at least not a positive one.

I thought that was the point, Blunts character was being built up as some sort of wannabe super agent/cop and ultimately she was used in a subplot to assassinate these warlords behind enemy lines.
Del Torro as good as ever.

Might need to watch the first again before getting to see the sequel.

Tried to watch Sicario at the weekend but the sound kept going on it on my IPTV player so I gave up. Will try again.


Watched Ready Player One last week and it was such a good film and outdone all my expectations.

Loved Ready Player One too. Anyone who loves 80s and 90s pop culture will enjoy it.

So many background references.

It was like a modern day Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

A Quite Place

Solid 7/10. Would have been higher only for the ending.

Incredibles 2 is very good for older children, I would say small children would get less out of it (8.5/10).

I watched Eye In The Sky on Netflix and it was much better than I thought it would be (7.5/10).

Welcome to New York  - 2014 , Gerard Depardieu plays the part of Strauss Khan  the IMF chief and possible French presidential candidate infamously accused of sexual assault against a hotel maid. It's a savage, no holds barred depiction of the predator. Depardieu is superb and fat, really fat. The film is more of a docudrama, very well edited. Naturally the film was the subject of the French snub and generally treated as toxic.
