The Mosquito Coast 8/10

An arrogant, know-it-all inventor (Harrison Ford) with a desire to get away from the "American way of life" decides to uproot his family and start a new community in the South American jungle, whereupon his arrogance turns to tyranny and then madness, which eventually leads to his ruin.

I found it captivating to watch and Ford makes a thoroughly unlikeable individual watchable; Helen Mirren as "mother" is given very little to do.

A good film for those looking for a story, rather than action or suspense.

Godzilla v Kong-7/10

Fun movie with action scenes focused on the monsters instead of people running away from the chaos they’re causing.

Beverly Hills Cop 7/10

I think previously I had only ever seen parts of the sequels, never the original. It was entertaining enough; I think I mostly watched it for Lisa Eilbacher than anything else. I might watch the second film tomorrow.

Heat and Dust 7/10

A Merchant Ivory production, which has two intertwining stories in two timeframes: one set in the 1920s and the other in the 1980s. The 1920s story is about a newly married English woman, Olivia, who joins her husband in India, and eventually has an affair with the local nawab and runs off with him. The 1980s story revolves around the great-niece of Olivia, who is retracing the steps of her great-aunt to find out what became of her.

I could have done without the 1980s story, which I think takes away from the other part of the film and doesn't really add anything. Overall, it is not up there with Howards End and The Remains of the Day, but it is still a solid outing.

Red Sonja 9/10

It's considered as the "other conan the barbarian" film just under a different name for whatever reason. Kalidor is basically Conan without the name title and he does what conan does played by Arnold who plays Conan. Story is fun and enjoyable but just really short film. I noticed Ernie Reyes Jr (Keno from TMNT2). Really cool to see Ernie in such a unique role. I didn't even notice at first but i eventually noticed; really awesome stuff. All I could think of whenever he left the scene ("Later Keno Dude"---hence TMNT 2)

The Mule 7/10
Clint Eastwood holding a film together that doesn't do much; Eastwood's screen presence (even at his old age) makes it watchable and more than it is.

Shutter Island 8/10
I should have seen the ending coming from a mile away, but it snuck past me.

Rambo Day:

Rambo: First Blood Part I 8/10
Rambo: First Blood Part II 7.5/10
Rambo III 7/10

I'd seen the first Rambo film before, but I'd never seen the other original two sequels (at least in their entirety). The first film is the best; the subsequent films up the body count and explosions and not much else, though they are enjoyable to watch. I feel they missed an opportunity to really explore the Rambo character in First Blood Part II, with his return to Vietnam, and the impact of his experiences during the Vietnam War.

I'm not sure if I want to watch Rambo and Rambo: Last Blood; part of me feels I should leave it there.

"Rambo" is worth watching just because of how completely fucking mental it is.
"Last Blood" rapes the franchise to death in front of the handful of remaining fans. It's awful.

I might watch "Rambo" again because it really is a spectacular bloodbath.
It's the most violent film I can think of.

The Island 7/10

Regular Michael Bay fare; watchable and action-packed, though it takes a while to get going and it is probably 30 mins too long.

Scarlet Johansson is at peak hotness as well, which is always worth watching.

Escape from Alcatraz 7.5/10

Prime Clint Eastwood. I don't think there is any music or dialogue for the first 5-10 mins; I feel this is something Hollywood should embrace again: let the imagery set the scene and slowly let the mood soak in, rather than trying to immediately grab people's attention and distract them.

Chaos Walking 7/10

Sci-fi, I think mainly aimed at "young adults," with Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley and an underused Mads Mikkelsen.

I haven't read the books that the film is based upon, so I can't judge it against them, but I found it watchable and it didn't drag. Outside of Marvel, I find Tom Holland to be a largely naff actor, and Daisy Ridley is not much better; but the film did not suffer as a result of them.

Amistad 7/10
