Justice - 2017



Yet another tediously predictable cliched and generic Western. Matey gunpants rides into town looking for his recently murdered church-hugging brother and whips up a rebellion against the town bullies and corrupt head honcho.
The ending scene is ridiculously naff. Not particularly bad in any singular aspect, just naff all over.

Negative - 2017



Another B-grade special agent caper, though it does aspire to more. Katia Winter is the Lady trainee Bond with a target on her chest, one of the more eye-catching areas of the film, taking umbrage at a casual photographer's snap in the park and turning up at his flat to collect the negative just in time to escape some enraged Colombians out for a refund after discovering that their Cuban family holiday photos were not colour-corrected or sorted in order. Too many holes, silly time fillers and other inexplicable events means that most of it doesn't make sense but we found it ok if you couldn't care less for such things.

Traitor - 2008



A good quality terrorist infiltration romp with the now ubiquitous Don Cheadle, 10 years younger but looking exactly the same, as an undercover bomb-plot-foiler so good he also gets targeted by his own side courtesy of Guy Pearce's patriotic jawline. A decent film for all of its 110 minutes and perhaps the first glint that Don would make a good superhero. SuperPuppy tailwags 78 out of 100 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Steal This Film 1+2 2006-07



A bit of a disappointment, lacking depth, bite and thoroughness and focused wholly on TPB, which is a shame because the torrenting community is vast, and was when this was made. However, it is good to hear from the actual peeps involved in earlier TPB and the Swedish authorities' capitulation to American corporate and political bullying. Hopefully if there's a third let's hope it's a good 2 hours exploring all of peeps' arguments and reasons plus mentions of other sites and the evolution of file-sharing. Could be fantastic, but this isn't there yet. SuperPuppy tailwags 58 out of 102 :thumbsup:

Upgrade - 2018



Not too bad an effort with a promising sequels future but has some supremely doofus moments which let it down. Logan Marshall-Green is the everyday chap in a techno-future targeted as a host for the machinations of nasty bad peeps looking to test a computer chip upgrade by implanting it connected to his brain. Cue the chip's takeover and revenge mission. Overall a good job done with a low budget and unfamiliar names. SuperPuppy tailwags 74 out of 101 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Romans - 2017



Wow, the title and cover here is one hell of a mis-direction. Sack those marketing muppets!! Me n pups was expecting and hoping for the clash of swords and rivers of blood-letting with Orlando rising from a bloody swamp carrying a cross dressed like a London bricklayer. Nope, nothing like, it's about church child abuse and an adult but still pretty Mr Bloom punishing himself with nightly affections courtesy of Mrs Vaseline and Mr Truncheon. Ouch. Easy there tiger, you know how dangerous and painful rings can be? Then his abuser returns to the parish and Bloomycheeks is torn between rage and a nice new floral pink choirboy outfit. Most impressive about this for us was how ferociously mean and simmeringly nasty Orlando can be, a much harder bunny than that Legolas pansy and Sauron should thank his lucky rings he never fiddled with young Legolas in the Dwarven catacombs. Oh, and we thought the ending was super-naff and unrealistic. One thumb only, even though there's clearly room for more. SuperPuppy tailwags 67 out of 101 :thumbsup:

Game Night - 2018



I'd heard mixed reviews about this, so I wasn't overly optimistic when I put it on.  Well, that changed pretty bloody quickly!!!  This movie ticked all the boxes, and then drew it's own boxes and ticked the hell out of them as well.  Tipping the time-scales at a svelte 1:40, it was perfectly edited with no wasted time, but also no unexplained plot gaps that only make sense when you view the deleted scenes and curse the wanker editor who ruined the movie.

The laughs came thick and fast, supplied by all members of the perfectly selected cast.  Each actor got to shine, as did the deliciously crafted script.  There were many, many great bits, but one particular stand-out was the spookily accurate Denzel impression performed while perched precariously on a pivoting pile of boxes (damnit, couldn't think of a p-word for boxes lol).  Special mention must go to Jesse Plemons for an outstandingly deadpan and breathtakingly creepy neighbour-from-hell portrayal.

There were some great plot twists, including one near the end that I didn't see coming until it walked up and slapped me upside the head.  If you're in the mood for a rollercoaster of laughs and fun, then this is the flick for you.

Midnight Run - 1988



Haven't watched this classic for years, and stumbled across it as I was scrolling through my list of movies looking for something to put on in the background.  I'm happy to say that it holds up very well.  Grodin is the perfect foil for De Niro's crusty, angry burnedout ex-cop.  The dialogue, while quite monosylabic at times ("Jack?" "STFU"), is excellent; and De Niro's performance is one we can enjoy and he can be proud of (unlike most of the recent swill he's been putting up).

Jack's constant battling and never-say-die attitude ensure the pace cracks along, and the tension between the various factions keep it interesting and funny to boot.

An excellent sort-of-buddy road trip movie, and they don't even drive off a cliff at the end, thereby proving that men are better drivers than women... :Mr.G:  :Mr.G:

The Padre - 2018



A crimmy chase drama with a hoarse, gruff, and grizzly Nick Nolte as an aggrieved father out for revenge down Mexico way in pursuit of naughty fraudster alcoholic Tim Roth masquerading as a man in cloth to survive. Luis Guzmán is Nolte's reluctant local sidekick while Valeria Henríquez is the runaway wannabe using her wits to forge a partnership with Roth in the hope of getting to America. Nolte doesn't have a huge impact but Roth is excellent and seems made for the part. Not too many fireworks and it does a decent job while not becoming anything special - a reasonably entertaining watch. SuperPuppy tailwags 70 out of 103 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Ocean's 8 - 2018



Erm ... a bit boring and uncreative? Isn't clever crimmy creativity supposed to underpin the whole shebang? Plenty of big names but the characters don't do it for me and it all seems rather simplistically teen-girlie oriented with a shallow and rushed feel. Nowhere near the level of team interplay/humorous finagling that the Gents team series has. Bit of a floppy let-down for me n Pups I'm afraid, one thumb among the eight of yer is yer lot.

The 12th Man - 2018



Oh we like this don't we Puppy, yes we do. A WWII drama based on the true story of Norwegian saboteur and resistance fighter Jan Baalsrud, played by Thomas Gullestad, one of 12 Norvegans trained by the Brits to blow up stuff and sent off to light up the Germs with a raft, some paper clips, a photo of some food rations and fifty tonnes of TNT. They get betrayed and Mr Germ & the Gestapo Gang are waiting on the beach in their trunks and sunshades covered in ice-cream sundaes. Is that a howitzer in your trunks or are you just pleased to see us? So, 11 of them never get to use their paper clips but Jan survives an incredibly harsh environment and desperately tries to stay alive while being hunted by the indignant Germs. A wonderful story of human resilience and bravery including from those that risked everything to help Jan. Must try and find the original 1957 telling of this story 'Nine Lives'. Not a boom-bang war actioner, but a serious portrayal of the will to fight and survive. Watch with the fire on full and some hefty double-sheep jumpers to hand.

Porcupine Lake - 2017



Supposedly a story about a couple of young ladies on the cusp of early womanhood discovering themselves and each other on the path to something more mature, but ruined by the sideshow distraction of warring parents. Starts off amicably and interestingly enough but the focus then moves away and it becomes less about the girls blossoming friendship. Such a let-down after a promising beginning and in the end nothing but anticlimax and a feeling of avoidant withdrawal. If you're not brave enough to go for it don't bloody start. Waste of time.

Hereditary - 2018



More over-hyped, ultra-sensationalised and risibly unscary pseudo-demonic possession nonsense. This is supposed to be THE big scare of the year, but for me and Puppy some big screen animal fornication getting an Oscar or contagious acclaim for that Big Lebowsky pants-fest is much more worrying. In the first hour there's only one scene of any merit and the second half isn't any better. It's just rubbish and that's it.

Daybreakers - 2009



This is a decent one; ok it's yet another Vampire film but a different direction is taken and the variation is a welcome change. In a world where a virus has transformed the majority of peeps into clean-living overlord vamps our poor humans are now a valuable and hunted commodity much needed to supply farmed blood to keep the Vamps happy. Sam Neil is effectively unpalatable as the commercial greedmonger looking to drip-feed profits while Ethan Hawke is the Vamp with a conscience striving to discover a viable substitute when along comes cured human Willem Defoe looking for a thirsty ally. Reasonably well done and the alternative angle gives it an edge over the routine vamp-cliche mass market. Nice introduction too with a young girl vamplet burning herself to death at dawn because of the scarcity of her favourite breakfast fruit drink. SuperPuppy tailwags 76 out of 99 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Tag - 2018



Game Night set the bar for fun moves about games pretty bloody high, and in my opinion (i.e. inconravertable fact) Tag does a good job, but doesn't clear the bar.  Sort of like that pole vaulter who gets close, but ends up smashing into the bar and ripping his scrotum off on the pole on the way down.  Yes, he didn't win, but he gave it a red hot try, and provided oodles of entertainment for the public in the process.

Entertainment is what Tag delivers, buoyed up by the fact that this is based upon a real life story of a bunch of guys who live by the motto "You don't stop playing because you got old, you got old because you stopped playing".  This is a motto I wholeheartedly subscribe to!!  These guys, during 1 month each year (Feb IRL, May in the movie) play tag - they chase each other around, go to extremely stupid and entertaining lengths, and generally keep each other young.  Given they all live in different cities, have different jobs and lives, the game is elevated from the kids game to a strategic festival of silliness.

Isla Fisher turns in another wonderful performance as the psycho.  It's a detuned version of her maniac character in The Wedding Crashers, and she's a great foil for the guys.  Jon Hamm is solid and funny, as he is wont to be, and the rest of the cast do a good/great job.

For me, there was a little bit lacking near the end, but this is a very mild issue and didn't detract from the overall enjoyment I got from this flick.  Solid effort, would watch again.

First Blood (aka Rambo) - 1982



I digitally dusted this one off for a long overdue rewatch.  Another classic flick which has weathered the test of time well, and stands up as proud as a honeymooners pee-pee in the pantheon of wronged-ex-military-vet-gets-shafted-then-gets-revenge movies.  Stallone is pre-plastic surgery, and is marginally more intelligible than his current mush-mouthed incarnation.  Brian Denehey turns in an excellent performance as the Sheriff who starts all the mess, but is motivated by concern for his community (which gradually disappears).  Richard Crenna shows why he graduated top of his class at the William Shatner college of colossal overacting, and brings a wonderful (albiet inadvertant) comic relief to the film.

Violent, but not gratuitiously so, this film does a great job of telling the story of veterans who get treated appallingly by the nation they risked their lives to serve.  The characters are engaging and the pace of the film is perfectly balanced, blending action and drama into this classic production.

Superfly - 2018



A crimmy drug gangster caper set in Atlanta with Trevor Jackson as 'Youngblood Priest', a 'superfly' dealer aiming to circumvent his mentor for one last retirement plan deal while also having to handle corrupt coppers and trigger-happy rivals out for a piece of the action. The clothes 'n' club scene sets are extravagant and entertaining but overshadowed by Trev's scandalous mullet which steals the show. All the usual fayre and nothing outstanding apart from some hairstyles, lacks a bit of depth and class and some nifty scissor work above the neck but okayish.

Final Score - 2018



Oh my jeez what da fug is this garbage!! Lol are you serious?? Dave Bautista is the special forces tourist popping into London to visit his daughter and take her to a home footy game at West Ham United, just when a bunch of east-european terror crims are holding the stadium to explosive ransom in order to find Pierce Brosnan and stop him from making any more films in the public interest. All good I hear you say, but there are so many things wrong with this muddled puddle of sewer shrapnel I don't know where to start. One example; near the start Dave and daughter are in the ground and a subdued cheer arises from the crowd as the team appears. Firstly, it sounds more like 20 blokes whooping in their sleep in an empty warehouse, secondly there's NO WAY that West Ham have that many fans and 20 is a blatant 400% exaggeration, and thirdly the 4 that do go out of drunken loyalty are more likely to be booing even if they managed to avoid getting their heads kicked in by a couple of lost grannies looking for the Chelsea Women's Institute hall. Utterly unrealistic and pants all over. SuperPuppy tailwags 20 out of 159 :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:

To Live and Die in L.A. - 1985



This is a choice oldie from the mid-eighties - just look at those clothes, those hairstyles, listen to that music!! And wow, I mean WOW how much that young whippersnapper Willem Dafoe has changed!! He once didn't have a single wrinkle!! It's true I swear!! Our smooth 'n' shiny young Willem is a master counterfeiter attracting the wrathful revenge attention of William Petersen's unstable cop after trashing his nosey partner. Cue a pacey and fervent hunt and chase leading towards an unforgiving fatal sting. There's a palpable 'underbelly' feel giving the film a lovely atmosphere and it's still a decent watch over 40 years later, plus the soundtrack by Wang Chung. Good stuff and we like.

Eastern Promises - 2007



A pretty good delve into the world of trafficking but without the gratuitous flesh-bruising, hard-men fighting and other grimy squalor that normally rides along in its class, this being more of an understated worrier for the ordinary person inadvertently acquired into the wrong scene with Naomi Watts the unfortunate midwife collecting the diary of a slave prostitute and speaking with the wrong people before her Russian Uncle discovers the nasty truth. Perhaps intentionally milder than necessary for the topic we found it well worth the watch with Viggo Mortensen and Vincent Cassel entertaining as the mismatched hefty henchmen vying for favour from the gang boss while trying to keep a lid on the leakage.

Hunt For The Skinwalker - 2018



Oh my days what a laughable mound of fug-nubbling dangleplop this is!! Documentary? Do you even know what that word means? The word gives it a kind of official declaration of scientifically investigated quality research doesn't it? So sadly and shamefully abused here. Take a good look at the cover, that's as close as you'll get to seeing anything, and that's just artwork not connected to this PHONEY 'documentary'. 10 minutes in after flash-frames of peeps flicking through files/rocky passes/dilapidated outbuildings with semi-spooky music etc. and there's the promise of '30 to 40 hours of videotape of incredibly starnge stuff'. TRY PUTTING SOME OF IT ON SCREEN THEN. 2 Hours of this quacking fakery nonsense. Hey, let's hear from some witnesses! YES LET'S!! 'Well, my granny, she's dead now, swore she saw a bush move, it was weird and the whole family's been scared ever since. We only buy brown clothing now.' SHOVE OFF YOU MUPPET. Even Robbie Williams appears near the end convinced there's something stranger going on than a reforming boy band. I've no doubt that there's something, somewhere, that needs proper investigation and documenting, but this ain't it - it's just a complete waste of 2 hrs of our lives. Puppy is fugging furious I can tell you.

The Iceman - 2012



This is more like it, a real story about real events, yeah baby! Michael Shannon is brillo in this. By the way he's the nasty boss-dude in The Shape Of Water who can't even get to the head of the cleaner-shagging queue in front of a lewd haddock. Here he plays real-life hitman Richard Kuklinski who evolved into a mob-handed killing machine after his work in a porn-film jism-hut was shut down. We don't blame him, I'd be a bit miffed too if my playtime was interfered with. Puppy had the evil eye for weeks after we hung his favourite cuddle-bear out to dry. Also a solid supporting cast including Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta, James Franco and Robert Davi ensures a fragrant aroma of terminal tension throughout. This guy's life seems an extraodrinary tale from start to finish and I'd love to get hold of the 3 documentaries on him. We like very much.

Miss Sloane - 2016



A speedy and nifty wits battle in the world of Capitol Hill lobbying with Jessica Chastain perfect as the sharp and caustic biting machine willing to do whatever it takes to win her case after switching sides on moral grounds to fight for tighter gun controls. The argo of bright minds and sleazy intentions is well interweaved and the dialogue is astute and trenchantly delivered for a clever and ascerbic 'knives out' verbal slash-fest. Well done wethinks for an entertaining political drama-thriller. SuperPuppy tailwags 78 out of 101 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

My Cousin Vinny - 1992



Another 'cult classic' which may have tickled sheltered 10 yr-olds thirty years ago but for me n Pups hasn't stood the test of time. We found much of it plainly stupid or simply irritating and it drags drearily and frequently when more fun could have been inserted. Ralph Macchio (the original Karate Kid) and friend find themselves unjustly accused of a murder amid a small town conspiracy to nail the nearest strangers and their only recourse is their squeaking puppet cousin and wannabe attorney Vinny played by Joe Pesci. Joe is slightly fun but the switch between dumbtard ignorant and genius case-winner is facile and for us the only delight is Joe's fancy-bit sidekick marvellously delivered by Marisa Tomei. Not much better than average. SuperPuppy tailwags 58 out of 100 :thumbsup:

Fender Bender - 2016



Actually not as bad as it looks with its mid-eighties B-movie style slasher-wrapping even though it's only 2 yrs-old. If that was intentional design then they did well. A young lady falls victim to a serail killer who deliberately prangs vulnerable women in order to get their details then pops round later to stamp all over the flowers and leave poison cakes on the car roof, among other naughty intentions. A tad cliched and generic there is some tension and suspense but nothing that makes it outstanding in its class although it's far from being the worst of its kind.

Winter Ridge - 2018



A watery and drizzling Brit effort at combining localised grief from a small-town dysfunctional drunkard with someone dispatching  the rapidly diminishing elderly population. Splash board 'Hello Mum' acting and a general feel that this is a failed radio pilot for a hybrid lovechild of the Archers meets Everdull Farm, but with fewer sheep. That'll teach them to form their own union. Radio is probably the best place for this third-rate-at-best misery mulch.

Furthest Witness - 2017



And the further you are away from the screen when you witness this the better. Actually that's a bit of an injustice, but only Sean Patrick Flanery has any real screen presence here as the hitman 'The Florist' (I kid you not) chasing down Aaron Stanford & Teri Reeves with a high-calibre bouquet when a vanishing act turns out to have strings and a few daisies attached. There's the idea of a decent thriller here but this is more weeds and greenfly rather than fragrant blossom. One top moment - reading the credits and discovering that Aaron's sniperman pal sidekick is in real life named 'Forrest Fyre'. At least 100 points for witty parenthood there, thanks for the giggle Mr & Mrs Fyre! SuperPuppy tailwags 60 out of 102 :thumbsup:

Solo: A Star Wars Story - 2018



Oh dear, where to start eh. 'SoLow - How far down Disney can screw Star Wars'. Dear Alden Ehrenreich, you will never grow up to be Han Solo. You don't look like him, you don't sound like him, your character is completely different and you are about 3 feet too short. Plus, here you look older than the GOD-LEGEND Harrison Ford did when he made his first appearance, so how does that work? Plot - whimsical, characters - vapid, scenes - awkward and predictable, special effects and make-up - lazy and trivial. Paul Bettany's Dryden Vos comes across as a failed game show host hamming an audition for market trader of the year and Woody Harrelson's Tobias Becket is a faded and jaded Indiana Jones wannabe. An appalingly awful addition to the Star Wars cabinet. If opnly they would just STOP and put their poor overworked minds to something new, sigh. Had SW not existed and this was a stand-alone effort making its own way in the Chewie-verse I would probably rate it better, but to put the SW stamp on this ... nah, stick it. And don't get me started on that scrapyard pram they're trying to pass off as the Millenium Falcon, looks more like an electrified sparrow of the month.

Tag - 2018



A semi-enchanting lifetime friends story mixing fun and sentimentality with 5 friends pursuing each other during May each year to try and pass on the 'IT' tag - in this venture conspiring in an attempt to tag their one untaggable member, played by Jeremy Renner, who thus far has eluded the poisonous touch of humility but is open to defeat at his wedding. Based on a Wall Street Journal article about a real-life group of laddies unable to give up this addictive game in favour of growing up, in which I think there were more involved than the 5 here, the film is part fun but part lethargic and rather than shorten its 1hr 40 mins better would have been more fun scenes and a little more creativity. That said it plods along well enough for a reasonable giggle session and dozes happily in the pram alongside such likes as Game Night.

The Punisher - 2004



Pretty rubbish. I haven't seen the other versions or TV series of Marvel's antihero but this surely can't be the best of them. In this one John Travolta's name is the attention grabber playing the bad boy who upsets Thomas Jane's portrayal of Frank Castle by despatching his family and turning him into an unhappy skull t-shirt advert. We found it achingly dry and bereft of any class, with the look and feel of a bad made-for-tv movie. At 2 hrs it's overlong and strecthed thin to ripping point, and the fight scenes are pants. Not impressed. SuperPuppy tailwags 49 out of 102 :thumbsdown:

Benicio is back, yeah baby!! Our Avengers' Thanos (Josh Brolin) takes a break from killing half the people in the universe to watch apprentice Benicio del Toro kill a few more just for luck. Given the job of using the kidnap of a Cartel boss's daughter in order to start a war down Mexico way to suit the Americans our boys pile in gung-ho gangnam stylee but don't get the viral dance they were hoping for. Lovely. Great atmosphere, tension and pace just like the first - if you liked that one then sit back and enjoy. Also it feels like an 'Empire Strikes Back' filler, something to keep things rolling and in the air for the third instalment to really nail a classy trilogy. Me n Pups hope that's the case anyway, Benicio can borrow our hit list anytime, and fingers and paws crossed that Sicario 3 is already on the way, yum.

The Meg

6/10 That's some big fishes there but otherwise it was just OK.


BuyBust

6/10 Brandon Vera fighting his way out of that labyrinthine criminal slum was one thing, Anne Curtis was another altogether! :think: I think it's suppose to be a satire to the ongoing Philippine drug war but some parts of the fighting was almost comical to me. *sigh* Oh well, better than nothing.

DEEP IN THE VALLEY (2009)



Nothing special, just a good (or not so good) comedy in my opinion! 5.5/10

HALLOWEEN: THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS (1995)
UNRATED PRODUCERS CUT



A plot based on a mysterious cult...? Bullshit! :thumbsdown: For me, this's one of the weakest movies in the franchise!  4/10
