Rate The Last Film You Watched

I still haven't finished Black Panther yet, too mundane to keep my interest. Suicide Squad was average as well but watchable enough - more laughs.
A lot of the Super Hero films suffer from the same problem, they are always dealing with a MASSIVE CATACLYSM and really a lot of the time it's the character interaction that's more fun. It all gets a bit lost in the special effects and the attempts to ring emotion out of you.
Thor Ragnarok I enjoyed, for the laughs rather than the plot. When Hela was killing everything I was Ho Hum but the banter between the Hero's was excellent and kept me watching, same with Guardians 2 though that was quite laboured in places.
Perhaps they need to do a TV series rather than films if they can avoid butchering them as badly as they did Iron Fist and Power Man.

It was the alleged humour or comedy that I disliked in Thor3 and GG2. I am halfway through Blank Panther, I am finding it hard going. Even 50 year old's have ADHD.

Fantastic film! Werner Hertzog's remake in 1979 with Klaus Kinski & Isabelle Adjani is good, but the original is quite stunning.

Shadow of the Vampire is a biopic of this film. John Malkovic as Murnau and Willem Dafoe as Max Schreck. Worth a watch.

Yup, both good. I think Herzog’s is more of a hommage to Murnau’s, rather than a remake; as it’s a different story. I enjoyed Shadow too, the fantastic theory of Schrek being an actual vampire was always going to make for an interesting subject. I also enjoy Dreyer’s Vampyr (1932). Based loosely on Le Fanu, it has a tremendous dream-like atmosphere.
 
The Nun, mad me jump a couple of times I have to be honest. Not a bad film nor a particularly good one but enjoyable non the less.

The house with a clock in its walls, I really enjoyed this film. Jack Black and Cate Blanchette bounce off each other nicely and comedy seems to come easy to both of them. Worth a watch.

Dave.
