After Earth
After Earth (2013)
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I had hoped that After Earth actually has some positives but sadly no. It is hilarious at times though, watching Smith & Son make right royal arses of themselves. But Smith senior's semi-comatose "shopping list" dialogue and Smith junior's whinny snivelling do grate on the nerves after a while. And conflating fatherhood with the domineering control of a military martinet is painful. As is watching the hapless sprog, sent out on a near suicide mission, being knocked from pillar to post by the local fauna (mind you, Top Cat & co. would prove a challenge). Bad Sci Fi can be redeemed by great special effects, alas I've seen scarier things watching Doctor Who back in the 80's. Will Smith became Won't Smith in this stinker.

The Hateful Eight
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Reminiscent of Reservoir Dogs, in that a group of violent people have to share the same space. Once hostilities inevitably break out the blood starts to fly. Typical Tarantino fare with a terrific cast. Murder most foul is never better rendered then by the master of amoral maestro of gore himself, Quentin Tarantino.

Spectre
Spectre (2015)

½

I have finally gotten around to watching the latest Bond instalment and the
first thing to note is the hugely impressive opening scene. Certainly the
Mexicans think so as they have since held a parade as depicted in the movie in a case of life imitating art. As the plot proceeds to undercover the dastardly
Ernst Blofeld, there is touch of jadedness about it all despite the terrific
acting and production. Still epic Bond though.
