Much more of a nightmarish dream or vision than a war film. It´s been a long time since I was physically tensing in the theatre this much. It feels a lot like that Sandra Bullock movie. I doubt I will want to watch it repeatedly. But this one time was a time to remember!
The trailers didn´t even come close to delivering an impression of how this film in its entirety works.
I particularly liked the night sequence.
Maybe it was not my day, but the half that I saw did nothing for me. Sure, great performances galore from known and unknown actors. And the architecture of the house was very fascinating. But even with the good-humoured performances all around I found myself not caring.
And I´m not one of those TLJ haters ;-).
Well, the plot really started rolling during the second half... not unusual in "whodonit" films.
Well this was a surprise! Wasnt expecting much from this, Guy Ritchie back in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking barrels mode! But it is great fun.
Slow to start but when it gets going....really entertaining!
Great cast, Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant and stealing the show, Colin Farrell. Great set pieces, music and foul language in abundance. Well worth a look!
Great to hear, @Mathis! Corroborates my initial gut feeling.
It's never been a favourite of mine, if find it rather dull and uninteresting, but it worked surprisingly well in the cinema! Daltons performance really stood out, even though his Bond doesn't feel completely right in the movie, and the action set pieces were excellent. John Glen really is a brilliant action director, which becomes even clearer when you watch his Bond movies on the big screen. Both the sea plane sequence and the truck pursuit are fantastic! Ant that Bond theme by Michael Kamen... absolutely perfect!
Eastwood has done it again and delivered a gripping and interesting movie. I didn t know this story too well beforehand, but hardly surprising to see how this played out. Recommended.
My first trip to the cinema since Knives Out. Amazing movie. Really smart script and unbelievable effects. All performances are great. My only nitpick is that it is a bit noisy at times. Still, this needs to be seen in the theatre. Just about a dozen attending, but it was a Tuesday afternoon screening.
If I should rank the Nolans;
04 THE DARK KNIGHT
05 BATMAN BEGINS
06 THE PRESTIGE
08 THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Joaquin Phoenix’s portrayal of an aspiring stand up comedian’s unsettling descent into a life of crime the titular Mr J is phenomenal. He isn’t a Joker dipped in a vat of chemicals or asking how he got facial scars. He is a Joker pushed to the edge of society by the rich and poor divide of Gotham, and whom gives previous Jokers like Nicholson, Ledger and Hamill a clear run for their money.
Solid support from Robert De Niro’s talk show host, a grimy and rundown Gotham, and THAT stair dance scene make this the movie of 2019. Todd Phillips has crafted a masterful, bleak, dark, nihilistic and disturbing origin story that stands on it’s own two feet.
(This was the last movie I saw at the cinema in October 2019. Until the current pandemic dies, I won’t be going for a very long time.)
Some very funny scenes throughout, and De Niro is great as always. Not many people attending, and I was undoubtedly the oldest.
The whole theater felt pretty dead. Things like water fountains and sinks and the bar were shuttered and there were maybe 10 people in my showing, with the entire row to myself. I really enjoyed that.
This was great and had it all. Good story, well made, intense drama and plenty of fun. Mikkelsen was amazing as usual, but not just him.
The best Marvel movie in a while, and no one is more badass than Black Widow, although The Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko) gave her some competition.
You definitely should. It has some interesting twists and turns.
I like the sound of that. Mads has been knocking it out of the park lately, especially with Another Round. I also loved his work in The Hunt from a few years back, such a crushing movie.
I loved it, thought the performances were excellent and it was an interesting look into a drunken experiment, of sorts.
Original and well made. I had a nice time.
Villeneuve has done it again. Looks fantastic, great cast, the score elevates the whole thing. Looking forward to Part Two.Hopefully before the year 10 191.

While I think Sunset Boulevard remains my favourite Wilder film, and perhaps one of my favourites of all time, Double Indemnity is no less a stellar film that it is rife with witticisms, wonderful performances (a special mention to Edward G. Robinson as Keyes), and all the trappings of a terrific film noir.
It's a solid 5 out of 5 for me or 10 out of 10 - whatever the highest score is, that is what I am rating it. I've seen it twice now. Beautiful, moving, great Bond film.
