    Movies Watched At The Cinema In 2019

    79/100

    I've just got back home from seeing this, it's almost 1AM and I'm trying to think of something coherent to say!

    I didn't feel the same uneasy anxiety wash over me as I did with Hereditary. This has a much lighter tone, the only thing dark is the humour (that's a lie there's some horrible stuff in this).

    Florence Pugh is outstanding, not quite Toni Collette in Hereditary level but not far…

    You Picked, I Watched.

    68/100

    I wasn't the biggest fan of the original Suspiria but I think there are a few things that I liked more in that version, the music and the colour scheme especially.

    Thom Yorke's score is fine but I prefer the less organic sounds that Goblin used, the original theme is so iconic.
    The neon colourscape is gone and in it's place we have the yellows and browns that are so synonymous with the 70's.

    Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

    ★★★½

    Rewatched

    Still a better love story than Twi.... just kidding. The love story in this is by far the worst thing about it. A film that makes Natalie Portman seem annoying has done something wrong!
    As for the rest of the film it's far better than Episode 1 even if Hayden perhaps wasn't the best pick for Anakin. He's not awful but again the script really doesn't help him.
    The action scenes are great, we have Christoper Lee fighting Yoda, Boba Fett's origin story and what seems to be the template for Brexit (minus the clone army).

    ★★★

    Rewatched

    Going back through all the Star Wars movies in chronological order seemed like a good idea but then I remembered that means starting with this. I actually don't hate it, it's not a patch on the original trilogy but it's still a fun science fiction action movie. The dialogue is far too clunky and Jar Jar is an abomination but at least there's no love story in this!

    🎃HORRORWEEN🎃 2017

    67/100

    This was a pleasant, fun surprise. I had low expectations with it being a McG film but I really enjoyed it.
    It reminded me a lot of the movies I grew up on, like 'The Gate' & 'Fright Night'.

    Films Seen At The Cinema.

    Sat in the cinema with my Force Awakens t-shirt, I was waiting for the rush of nostalgia to hit me (member, member chewbacca?).

    It didn't come. I didn't feel the way I did when I saw Force Awakens.

    It was still awesome to see Darth Vader, the Death Star, *insert spoiler here*, but I never really cared for these other characters, apart from the droid and Donnie Yen, because he's a legit bad ass.

    Maybe…
