Three Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri.

A good watch, had me in stitches at times. Not many films grab my attention 100% - this one did.

Star Wars (bit late, but i saw it on the first Midnight showing).

Went with super fans.

I gave it 7 out of 10, they gave it 3 out of 10. :shock:

I gave it 4 out of 10 it was clearly on a lower budget and the plot was soooooo predictable and a rehash of the empire strikes back

and the next one will be Rey turning her twin brother Ben from the dark side and reinstating the old senate in a thinly disguised rehash of return of the jedi

It's funny as to how a film grabs you! Three Billboards was imo very enjoyable. Without giving too much away, the ending could have been elongated somewhat, as said - enjoyed. Then I started to watch "Darkest Hour"! It did not hold my attention - and got switched off, (honestly). I should imagine that if one is into Churchill/history, or for that matter Gary Oldman as an actor, then I can see the enjoyment.

Oh I forgot one.

Coco - One Pixar film that will be viewed differently by kids than by adults. Kids I would guess 7 out of 10, adults 9 out of 10. Especially if you have lost family members in the past few years.

Watched Interstellar again today.

10 out of 10.

Best film this century by far.

Music score for the film 11 out of 10. Hans Zimmer pure class.

Murder on the Orient Express 6 out of 10.

Nowhere as good as the original which in my view is 10 out of 10.

Watched Coco again and still impressed 9 out of 10.

Last Flag Flying 8 out of 10.

When it started I thought what a pile of s***. But it grew and me and had a very moving end.

Shape of Water 5 out of 10.

Quite how it won best picture I will never know. OK but nothing special.

Watched the above again, still the same high score.

Death-wish (not the Bronson original, Bruce Willis this time) 2 out of 10. Pile of poo.

Film Stars don't die in Liverpool. 8 out of 10. Wanted to hate it, but it was really good.

The Greatest Showman. 8 out of 10. Expected to hate it, but quite enjoyed it.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story. 9 out of 10. Not often I'm surprised by a documentary, but this Hollywood star of the 40s and 50s, was also a very clever girl who patented something most of the planet uses every day.

The Final Year. 7 out of 10. Another documentary about some of Obama's staff in their last year in office.

Stan and Ollie.

If you are old enough to remember seeing them on the telly as a kid with your family (50 +), 10 out of 10. Brilliant and really moving.

If you are younger than that then maybe 8/9 out of 10.
