Fist Fight (2017)

Starring Ice Cube & Charlie Day

A teacher sacked from his job in a rough US school blames a fellow teacher and challenges him to a fight after school.

I found this comedy much better than the reviews I read, the two leads are very good, and the fight itself is reminiscent of Rocky V.

8/10

Justice League

The 5th film in the DCEU which is a very good fun & very entertaining comicbook film with fantastic special effects, great action & not as dark as most of the previous films in the DCEU have been with plenty of humour throughout the film

Whilst the returning Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) & Superman (Henry Cavill) are all very good, the stars for me are the new DC superheroes that debut, in particular Aquaman (Jason Momoa) & The Flash (Ezra Miller) both steal the show from start to finish.

Some very good setting up of upcoming DCEU films as well, in particular for Aquaman (with Amber Heard as Mera), The Flash: Flashpoint & Justice League 2.

There are 2 scenes in the credits, a fun one partway through and a great humdinger of a scene right at the end of the credits

9/10

SHOWTIME A-HOLES!!!!!

The Grandmaster(2013) The story of Ip Man, a martial arts master, who in later life trained Bruce Lee, though this stylish film deals principally with the 1930s to the 1950s period in China, cleverly bringing in such events as the Japanese invasion, World World Two and the post war exodus to Hong Kong. As I said stylish, with gorgeous cinematography and clever, occasionally overdone choreography. Tony Chui-Wai Leung as Ip Man and Ziyi Zhang give strong central, underplayed performances, and make them characters you can emphasise with. Also starring Quinxiang Wang. 7.5/10

Babel(2006) A selling of a gun has an impact on the lives of people in four interconnecting stories. Director Alejandro Gonzalez Arriaga has experience of this multi strand storytelling before, having used it successfully in the films 21 Grams and Amores Perros, and this is a success too, with strong performances from an ensemble cast, especially Brad Pitt,Cate Blanchett,Adriana Barraza and Rinko Kikuchi. The director has a talent for often using just the camera without any dialogue to tell the story. A classy soundtrack too, mainly Mexican and light classical. 7/10

RE: Last film you watched
Man On The Moon(1999) The biography of comic entertainer Andy Kaufmann. Jim Carrey is the perfect fit in role of Kaufmann, both Carrey and the film skilfully cover his eccentric,at times uncompromising behaviour, his clashes with the broadcasters( he didn't like sitcoms, so was not keen on his hit show,Taxi) and his wish to follow his own course . There's also very good performances from Danny DeVito as his manager,Courtney Love, surprisingly good as his girlfriend and Paul Giamatti as his writing partner. The last period of his life, battling cancer, is covering in a moving, unsentimental way. Also starring Michael Kelly,Gerry Becker and Leslie Lyles. 7.5/10

The Lighthouse(2016) Based on a true story and set in 1801 on a South Welsh island lighthouse, two keepers(Mark Lewis Jones & Michael Jibson) battle the elements and their thoughts and minds when bad weather delays them finishing their shift. A slow, occasionally dull and repetitive drama,main assets, fine acting from the leads, moments of creepiness and unease and fine sea storm special effects. 6/10
