It's taken me an age to finally get round to watching this movie and all though it is good, it did fall slightly short of my expectations.
After a very strong start and a solid story throughout, it still felt a little anti-climatic by the end.
It is a clever take on the genre, and in a really odd way it reminded me of Matterson's novel 'I am Legend' (not the movie!)
It was brave and original to go for the finale the way they did in this movie, it just fell short of what I wanted.
It's good, it makes you think, it is clever and well executed in the most part, and it has some really good scenes that are littered througout the picture rather than thrust into one section of the movie.
Worth a watch if you're prepared to be patient and give it your full attention.
Our house takes its time, the pacing is slow but I found it very engaging. The build up was well crafted and the movie gradually built up a creepy vibe without ever becoming terrifying.
I was glad the movie makers resisted the temptation to overdo the climax with overblown ideas. They kept it subtle and within the feel of the entire film while still delivering some good suspenseful moments and low budget cinematics that really worked well.
All in all I enjoyed the film, and I would say it is on the high end of average, but you need some patience to fully engage with the story.
Star Wars for the new generation and that includes my son who loves this!
Ok, so Disney have got their hands on the Star Wars franchise and too many people don't like it - BOO HOO!
Born in 1975 I grew up with Star Wars in my DNA, and I realise that nothing will ever match the scale and success of the original trilogy, but don't hate this for doing it's best!
All the new characters work! They appeal to a new audience and they are humorous and very cool. Nostalgia is abundant with the return of Han, Leia and Chewy! What's not to enjoy????
Littered with epic scenes this movie builds a new Star Wars world with a new threat born out of the old evil empire. Yes it's similar, but does that really make it bad???? The tech has evolved along realistic timelines to deliver more powerful weapons that aren't too different to the old weapons, is that really so bad???
To score this movie with 1 or 2 stars is a joke, so along with the movie why don't you all hate this review and vote it down. Or you could simply stop watching these movies if you all hate them so much!
If, like me, you can unplug and enjoy Star Wars again then watch this and enjoy it. It's far better than the haters say it is!
It's good, but it's a little disjointed (no pun intended)
The concept of this film is very strong, the cast is very good, but the execution is lacking a little.
I enjoyed this movie and actually found it pretty fresh despite the similarity to Alien. I really liked the Martian life form, it was different and opened up interesting possibilities which were utilised to good effect in general.
There was good tension and suspense at times and some understated special effects scenes that kept the movie well grounded even when things were stretching reality a little.
I guess my main gripe is the slightly disjointed feel throughout the second half of the film. It wasn't exactly rushed, but scenes seemed to be mashed together to move the plot along too quickly at times and it tarnished my overall opinion of the movie.
The children is a decent british horror flick with a cool concept and some pretty slick direction.
My main issue was the lack of creepiness, murderous kids should have felt more scary than they did. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad movie and I thought it was executed with a great deal of realism.
The script and acting were fine, the story was good, i just wanted more scares! I never really felt the tension or the fear and it left this movie languishing in mediocracy when it could have been more!
Laugh out loud funny slapstick for the modern era!
Horrible bosses was a riot and this sequel is pretty much as good.
The boys are back, but trying to be their own bosses, very badly! The plot is outrageous and largely mad! The laughs are big and largely mad! The cast are all brilliant and mostly mad! It's all mad, but it works!
It's slap stick comedy but updated for the modern audience. Most of the gags are toilet humour level and the plot is pretty unrealistic if I am honest, but it just doesn't matter.
Horrible bosses 2 entertains and is hillariously funny!
Does anyone else think that Jennifer Anniston seems to enjoy playing a sex addict a little too much? She is just brilliant in the role!
The premise for this movie is pretty sick and the reality that we, as a species, could one day come full circle and find entertainment in watching people die like we did thousands of years ago is a scary one.
I like the interpretation of what this might actually look like in the modern world. And the movie packed a punch that made it quite powerful and engaging.
Clearly this movie isn't for everyone, and if the idea of it turns you off then you're better off not watching it.
But if you like Black Mirror, then this will probably work for you, it isn't excecuted quite so well, but it's definately similar in many ways.
Loved this one, hillarious and also a genuine warning to a new generation!
Nosedive is satire at it's very best!
The story is so cleverly put together and played beautifully by the cast. It had me laughing my head off while shaking my head at the reality of the message aimed at our judgemental, social networking society. Of course, nosedive takes the message to a whole new level in classic black mirror style, but this is going on the world we live in today and frankly it's scary as hell to think that it may one day come to this!
This one hits hard and is an illustration of human cruelty that is, at times, difficult to stomach.
The blend of stories in this episode is a winning formula and all three stories are compelling and each gets increasingly more disturbing.
The cruelty is so well desgined it is easy to empathise with, this makes it an emotional ride throughout and has you questioning whether the human psyche could actually cope with the trauma and torture of these futuristic devices.
The concepts are genius and the execution is brilliant!
The entire history of you plays with the concept that we all record everything that we see. We can replay any event and analyse it, display for others to see, relive our greatest moments! Sounds cool doesn't it?
It serves to breed paranoia, suspision, doubt, anger, hate, pain, and anguish!
Brilliant invention that inevitably undermines the human condition and exposes its flaws.
Thought-provoking and clever throughout, this episode is great!
