Get Out
Get Out (2017)
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A movie that's getting way more attention than it deserves purely due to the fucked up racial & political climate in today's society (espesh 'merica). Racism, hypnotism & oh yeah rich white Americans are the devil (ok, we get it). Am I the only one who realises this is basically a rip of "The Skeleton Key', just with "science" instead of supernatural voodoo?! It's never that scary, suspenseful, shocking or even that psychologically smart. As one of the highest rated films of 2017 I expected a shit load more. It wasn't even a fun ride. And no I'm not racist, I just know a boring shit movie when I see one. Although I do like one of the films subliminal messages to the average-middle-working class American who have had enough with Trump (whoops I mean narrow minded pig faced bigot) Get Out!

Jaws
Jaws (1975)
7 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Arguably the most iconic/famous movie on the planet - & for good reason. Another film that stands as a testament to incredible, dedicated film-making that, at over 40 years old, has stood the test of time. Anyone who's seen/read behind the scenes features/articles will know that they suffered tremendous difficulties shooting this movie from technical/mechanical failures to cast meltdowns & even bad weather. But the end result has produced an epic timeless classic that delivers primal fear in a way unlike almost all horror/thrillers created in this day & age.

The Legend of Tarzan
8 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

A franchise that dates back to the 1910s with countless Tarzan movies already made; so you'd think they'd have it easy making another blockbuster for 2016 but that's not the case with this unexciting, uninspiring & badly cast film that has less spirit than the Disney cartoon version. There's just so much that's wrong. The graphics aren't up to standard (The Jungle Book puts this to shame), the chemistry between Jane & Tarzan is empty & at times uncomfortable also it takes ages for the ball to start rolling & once it does... well no one really cared. Also, I just wanna say I thought Alexander Skarsgard was a terrible choice as Tarzan. Try again Hollywood.

Me Before You
Me Before You (2016)
9 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A film that basically advocates suicide for the benefit of your loved ones. I feel as if this movie wants us to admire it for being so bold in its second half. But was I the only one sitting there after the fade to black thinking; umm hang on, seriously? that just happened? He kills himself!? Sure it's a touchy topic in this modern PC age we live in, but c'mon!?! I thought these lovey-dovey inspiring movies were meant to show that that no matter how ugly, deprived, disabled or physically/mentally impaired we are... once you find the love of your life, you hold on to them, cherish each other & have your happily ever after? How the hell do they justify this film then? It was selfish, stupid & demeaning to other disabled people. Imagine if you were a young man/woman suffering the same ailment as Will in this movie - what the hell kinda message it is sending you? There's no hope, even if you do manage to find the perfect match. So just tell them to "flick the switch". Maybe I'm looking at this the whole wrong way, but seriously this movie pissed me off. Yes I'm also aware this is adapted from a novel - people keep telling me like that gives it some legitimate justice. Are you kidding me? Get out. The only positive I got out of this was seeing Clarke branch out from that stone-cold dragon role she'll forever be associated with. Oh & her natural hair!!

Almost Famous
Almost Famous (2000)
9 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A coming-of-age movie that takes you back to when music was more than just music, it was a lifestyle & for some groups practically a way of life. It's well before my time but is still pretty engrossing with some stellar acting from a relatively young cast (Kate Hudson looks barely 18!). Funny & heartfelt, it's an old-school road trip worth taking.
