I'd be more disappointed if he wasn't a prick to be honest.

Whilst away they had a daily screening on the ship, so I did a few films.

Logan - Didn't really like it. It just took absolutely forever to get going, and ultimately just felt like a transition film.

La La Land (rewatch) - Wasn't quite as won over the second time. I still think there's fantastic moment sin there, but as a collective whole it's just not quite there.

Girl On The Train - Really bad. Would have probably made a half decent 40's noir. But the story and presentation makes us invest so much in the girl on the train that we never doubt her, and it's just all over the place in it's structure. For a simple film it was quite hard to follow at times. Should have been good, but just wasn't.

Rogue One (Rewatch) - Again, not quite as won over the second time. I still think the final act is fantastic. I think it just drags it's feet getting there.

Yeah, I'd say that was a fair way of looking at it.

Spiny, are you interested in the Annabelle sequel? The first one was gash, but supposedly this is good.

I've seen The Conjuring (which was OK), are the subsequent films worth bothering with?

I made it about an hour into The Conjuring before turning it off due to boredom, despite being told it was one of the scariest films I'd ever see.

Dunkirk

Never ever thought this would be response to this film (despite the fact that I'm a huge fan of lots of the people involved in this - the 12A rating put me off I think), but this was really quite breathtaking. Was basically digging my nails into the cinema seat arm from that scene early on where the two lads are carrying the body on the stretcher across the beach to the very end of the film. The action sequences are brilliantly judged, the scope is huge (as you'd expect from a Nolan film) and the casting/acting/reduced dialogue works to incredible effect. What really blew me away though is Hans Zimmer's score and the way it's used. Extraordinary.

I saw it a couple of weeks ago, and it's the first film in a long time that I've come out of the screening of and thought 'I could go and watch that again in an hour'.

It's certainly nothing like "the scariest film you'll ever see" but I'd rate it (and the sequel) above anything in the Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Sinister series.

I'd say it's level with the first Insidious, but overall I agree with you.

Conjuring 2 was good too, but it felt too Hollywood at times.

Oh yeah. I've always found the Parasnormal Inactivity series to be over-hyped bullshit, thought the first Insidious was OK until the finale and I've never bothered with Sinister.

If I was to compile a list of horrors from the last ten years or so that I'd found genuinely creepy it would mostly be made of less well seen, off kilter movies like Under The Shadow, The Witch and It Follows. Thought the Babadook was OK but nowhere near as good as everybody said.

The Witch and The Woman In Black for me. Let The Right One In, too. That said, I haven't seen most of the others mentioned, aside from the first Paranormal Activity and Conjuring films.

Ah shit yeah, how did I forget about Let the Right One In? Great movie.

The Woman In Black did nothing for me, I'm afraid. Found Daniel Radcliffe absolutely gormless and lifeless throughout. Though to be honest, I'm slightly biased because I saw a stage production of it a few years ago and it was far scarier than any film I've ever seen.

You and me both. Saw the "twist" coming a mile off.

What was the twist then? I maybe didn't pay enough attention but they kept it as a pet in the end?

SPOILER:



The twist was that the "monster" was the mother's mental illness / depression.

No subtlety at all. They kinda smashed you over the head with it.

The Witch was far better than It Follows and The Babadook because it was more original and didn't shove its feminist subtext in your face.
