Toy Story 4. More of the same but just as enjoyable. 7/10

Is it me or has there been a dearth of really good movies this past year?

TV series seem to be killing the movie quality.  I am looking forward to the new Tarantino one though.

do you think its a case that movies are now seen as too long for the younger generations? People dont have the attention spans anymore so 45/50 min segments are long enough to keep people engaged. as you say all the money seems to be pouring in to series as opposed to films, wonder is it a sign of things to come

Dont know about that. I find it easier to watch a 2hr film still than get stuck into something that is 10 episodes and maybe multiple seasons long to tell a story

Watched a few movies the last couple of weeks as I had some spare time on my hands.

Hobbs and Shaw - 6.5/10 It's absolute muck but then quite enjoyable muck. I just love the Rock even though this is probably the most cheese he's ever fitted into a film but then what else was going to happen when he goes back to his Samoan roots!!

Once Upon a Time in Holywood - 6/10 I came out of this film not sure if it was a masterpiece or shite. I've since come to the conclusion it's shite and was basically Tarantino having a 2h 40m w**k on screen. Yes the acting and soundtrack were superb but the story/plot was basically non existent. What exactly Margot Robbie was doing in the film I will never know. Just strange and far too long. Wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

Yes it's too long for the feckers to be apart from the screen of their phones.  Cinema constantly being lit up by young ones checking their messages or sending snaps ffs.

Been looking forward to this film for ages! I will still be going in hope of another Tarantino masterpiece.

Would agree with Screen about Hobbs and Shaw. Probably the most stupid film I have seen in years but it was enjoyable in parts. Still prefer the main F&F series though.

Undecided about seeing Tarantino's new one. Reviews vary wildly as he always divides opinion.

Some of Tarantinoís movies have to be the most overrated in history.

Which ones?  Not everything he touches is golden of course and some dont get very good reviews at all i would say.

I would agree.  Although there are some like True Romance that seem to be underrated.

Jackie Brown probably my favourite out of them all.

Saw 'Once Upon a Time...." last night.
Can absolutely understand why many people won't like it. As stated above, the story line is rather thin, even though it is loosely based on a true story.
It is extremely slick, and the acting is superb. It definitely dragged at times, mostly while developing Di Caprio's character. Last 30 mins was excellent, and wasn't what I expected.
Overall, it won't be remembered in the top 50% of his films.

He didn't direct True Romance.

I really donít get the love that Pulp Fiction gets. Iíve watched it a few times over the years and I donít get why itís seen as a cult classic and the masterpiece that people make it out to be. Itís ok just imo. Kill Bill as well, pure shite. Inglorious b**tards didnít do it for me either. I maybe just donít like his style of film making.

Shawshank, Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator, The Godfather etc are movies that I would put up there as masterpieces.

Shawshank and The Godfather in the same list?!  :o

Shawshank is the most over-rated film imo. The Ed Sheeran of movies.

For me Pulp Fiction deserves every bit of praise that comes it's way.  A remarkable film with unforgetable characters and dialogue.  Reservoir dogs deserves high praise too.  Kill Bill I was just ok and part II was forgettable.  I do love a good war movie and Inglorious certainly isnt one of them.

I also thought Jackie Brown, Django and the Hateful 8 were all top class films.  Certainly it's all about opinions and i can see how his style wouldnt be for everyone.
