You need to ignore that and allow the story to evolve. I thought what you said when I read the book, but the characters were well written.

I think the problem is I'm not a fan of teen fiction.  :undecided:

Tried again and ended up screaming at the screen to just hit the big weak bit that's sticking out like sore thumb instead of picking off lights.
Put me right off again. (What a waste of cash.)

-edit- It's really left me wishing I hadn't bothered, I am genuinely pissed off at how crap it was.  :cheesy:

I gave Toy Story 4 a go for about 25 minutes.

I know it's a kids movie but there was no spark to it at all. Starts with a dull flashback, she goes to Kindergarten, SHE IS SAD!!!!, the fork thing is suicidal, they go on a road trip and the fork thing is still suicidal (or happy, depending on your perspective), all which was overlaid with a thick layer of disney music.
It's a wonder they just didn't have THIS IS NOW A DISNEY PRODUCTION flashing up on the screen every 30 seconds.

Sorry man, I thought it was terrible. Even the actors sounded dead inside.

Saw Terminator Dark Fate against my original intentions. I’m failed to see any ‘feminist’ message in the movie

It was a lot better than Genisys

Maybe these youtube content makers have an agenda to get everyone to clickbait their channel

One such channel went on and on about the feminist agenda, I got bored of it and never watched that channel again

The director may have said that their was an agenda, but that was probably to pull in more of the females to watch the movie, because there’s simply a larger male audience to these types of movies

From what I read, all it was, was that they figured Sarah Connor was kind of integral to the story...which she was, and reprised her character.

The ones bleating about feminist agenda's probably weren't even sperm when the original movies came out.

Watched a Brit drama, Jellyfish. Another of those with no real ending but it still kept me watching. Gritty.

I can’t imagine where they got that idea

But to put a little spoiler in, its just a bit of a rehash just a lot more females

There were some funny bits on it, like when someone says “I’m extremely funny”

I think they might have gotten the idea from the fact that the first movie was about a robot from the future trying to kill a woman from the present, and the same woman being integral to the plot of the second.

Ad Astra (Brad Pitt etc.) sounds a bit like Apocalypse Now most of the time.
Worth a watch since it's well made, but the script is a wee bit of a mess.

No spoiler here, but after blasting off from one planet to another on a rocket, with a massive booster to get them up to speed, they stop to investigate something in space, like it's fucking Star Trek.  :cheesy:
...and that's not the only time they break the laws of physics.

So many Zombie movies out there

Watched Juan of the Dead, it's in Spanish

But seriously, there's even one from South Korea I saw the other night...it's now getting a bit tired. But Juan of the Dead is good

I went off them years ago.  :smiley:

Watched Midway, which is OK, but the CGI is a bit ropey at times.

Kidnapped

Half expected Michael Caine to say “Don’t point that bloody bayonet at me” in a Scottish accent

That's an old one.  :smiley:

Richard Jewell is good, but probably 10 years late.

Joker was hard going, but well-acted. Dark and tragic.
Not the sort of film I'd watch twice.

Downloaded Trading Places today to help ease the isolation boredom.
Ended up keeping it in reserve for when I'm at an ultra-low and watched Leon:The Professional, again for the first time in about ten years.
Forgot how good it was. Gary Oldman deserved an Oscar for his part far more than he did for playing Churchill.

Ford Vs Ferrari is decent, Dark Water drags a bit, The Banker is good, The Gentleman looked shit within ten minutes and Onward within five.
I also watched Sonic, but his nose kept reminding me of a ex girlfriends nipples...very distracting.
Richard Jewell is also good

I watched Contagion last night which was unnerving under the current situation and many things they got right. However, they never gave a reason for why the main character was immune and they also developed a vaccine in 4 months.
Hollywood.
