    I watched Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome late last night, haven't seen that one on a long while, I liked it, was a good continuation from the Road Warrior...I wished Mel Gibson would have done one more Max movie, he was good in that role...

    'Joker' is an excellent character-piece on a man that gets beaten down in his world and changes into a terrifying symbol for others. Joaquin Pheonix's portrayal is unforgettable, carrying the film and making the character feel as real as possible. Though the movie may be slow for some, it is necessary to show all the events that are necessary to transform a character in this manner. The film is a must-watch due to Joaquin's portrayal of this classic character. An excellent performance, stunning cinematography, and stylistic score makes this film great.

    I highly recommend this movie.
    Bravo to Joaquin for a stunning performance!!

    Ad Astra - 4/10


    How much Brad Pitt acting do you really need to sell a movie?

    I'm gonna start with a compliment, before I dive into what I feel are my major flaws with this film. The visual aesthetic is incredible! This project simply looks beautiful; every few minutes there will be amazing wide-angle space shots, exquisite astral images and gorgeous planets. Even the directive choices are pretty clever - they add a few front-angle jump scenes,and first-person perspective shots, that gives you this really cool video-game vibe; Kinda like you're playing Halo. I saw it IMAX, so I was spellbound the entire time. But thats really all I can say good about it.

    The rest of this film is a real slog-fest. After a very enticing first act, this movie getsss slooooooooooooooowww.

    By the 60 minute mark, you'll feel the dip; 90 minutes in,and I was just waiting for it to end. Thats not entirely a bad thing - if slow films are your vibe, you won't mind this. But for me, I just got so bored.

    The plot also didn't interest me. The key focus is a father-son relationship, which is fine, but not what I was promised. The sub-plots in this story would've made for much stronger content. There's a mission on the far side of the moon,where they're ambushed by lunar space pirates (which lasts 2 minutes). There's a rescue mission, stylized as horror, where experimental primates take over a space shuttle (this is about 10 minutes). There's an entire mini-segment about humans living on mars that is literally 20 minutes. The rest of the story is just dedicated towards his father, which is a let down. You're teasing me with a full course meal and then delivering a fucking salad!!

    This led to a very underwhelming, unsatisfying climax, which had me going, 'Just end it'. Honestly, towards the end, I didn't even want to know what happens, because anything I found interesting was brushed off. Its really not as horrible as I'm making it sound; its just underused and wasted potential. I, personally would not recommend it unless you have access to your phone for easy distractions.

    In the past year I've watched more movies than I ever had before.
    One thing I learned is that the horror genre is not for me.

    They probably put detection equipment in theaters to read the thoughts of the viewers. For this movie they might be looking for things like "That's my home world." or "That planet looks familiar." Later or even before they see the movie a team will enter their residence and vacuum their clothes which tells them what planets they've been on.

    It's astonishing that a decent movie could be made in the recent past for a mere $7,000!

    Terminator Dark Fate
    Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) - IMDb
    Have always been drawn to this franchise so there I was on the opening day to see a slightly rusty looking Schwarzenegger and Grandma Hamilton (carrying a gun the size of a fully grown Christmas tree), Hollywood's geriatric set, do Groundhog day. For our salvation.
    A rehash of one and two, from the director of Deadpool, it lacks Cameron’s flare.

    Judy Garland lived a sad life. This movie follows her near the end.. The pills had done their work. She is just a shell. there is nothing left for her.
    A masterpiece performance excellent writing. A fantastic but sad movie.
    10/10

    Heresy I know but I liked the third with Loken and Stahl (and the hilarious Dr Silberman) whilst the chronicles had perhaps the best set pieces. Shirley Manson was chilling, and that sequence with Johnny Cash's "The Man Comes Around".

    If only they had reversed the Alien directing order and got Ridley Scott for one of them.

    Rogue. Even though it is an older one its pretty good and it is an Aussie flick. I would give it 8 out of 10. But then just my idea on it.

    One of the best movies ive seen. Good society criticism like in Falling Down or They Live.

    All the "boohoo" about this in the media just helped its success imo.

    That is a really good movie, its no ordinary comic book movie either, this movie has grit and heart, but all the hype about it was uncalled for, Brightburn was more violent and gory than this movie...I've seen this twice now lol...

    Terminator Dark Fate is a yawner to me, overly, heavily PC to death as well...If the rogue AI Terminator doesn't kill you the hard PC beating will...Also half the movie is in Spanish...Arnold doesn't look like a Terminator either, he looks tired...
