    X-men, The Last Stand

    I'm not a big Marvel comics fan, although I have watched many of the films and did read the comics when I was (much) younger.

    Mrs Cisamcgu and I watched the first two X-men films in the last few months, and we liked them enough to bother to watch this one. Well, we shouldn't have - dreadful story, plot holes the size of Wales, characters appearing and disappearing for no reason, little sense of wonder or excitement and a "surprise" ending that was just plain stupid. - A waste of 2 hours - 1.5/10 (and only because some of the explosions were good)

    The Family, Directed by Luc Besson , Staring Robert De Niro and some others.

    Dreadful, trulyfeckinawfull.

    I could not work out if it was meant to be a comedy or a thriller and by the looks of it neither could the director, and De Niro looked like he couldn’t care less.

    Anthropoid.

    Slower than a Reliant Robin with a plug lead missing.

    3/10.

    War for the Planet of the Apes - 9/10

    Finally got around to watching this properly. What a film. On the surface, it's a fairly standard sci-fi effort, but scratch just a little beneath that and you've got a morally complex and challenging piece of cinema. Asks a lot of questions and leaves a lot up to the viewer to decide, which personally I appreciate as I hate being railroaded down an emotional path. The whole trilogy has been excellent, but this one steals the show, and I hope they don't bother with a fourth instalment, because it would be totally unnecessary.

    Unless they're going full Spiderman and rebooting the reboot, I doubt I'd bother with that, if it happens. There really isn't any need for another film as the story has played out pretty much perfectly.

    I enjoyed that when it was on. Excellent tension building....tho' I did feel it rather fizzled out at the end.

    For a moment I thought you meant

    "A Quiet Place"

    Watched that Sunday.

    Quite enjoyable and different for a low budget alien occupation film

    8/10

    It should have been great, a true life tale of risk, bravery, and zapping Hitlers number 3, the only senior Nazzy to be successfully assassinated. Alas, they took a breathtaking and fascinating event and sucked all the life our of it.

    thanks for that. Besson's one of my favourite directors but he's done a few clangers... and now i know The Family is one of them :okay:
