I just watched Black Panther.

So why did this get described as being one of the best films of last year?

It's too long, full of dreadful CGI, entirely formulaic and it basically looks like a videogame for the whole thing. Absolutely blaverage.

Infinity war

So why not just cut off his arm while they had the chance?
Or kill him?

Or am I being to sensible?
Urgh, this is why I dont like a lot of comic films the simple solution is never done or they are just crap
I'm guessing since having the stones made him as OP as buggery, he could of easily instant heal or made himself too "meaty" to slice an arm off.

Or you know, so the movie doesnt end too soon for a part 2. :lol:

The Foreigner, starring Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan.

Not amazing but it was a surprisingly decent action thriller, seems Chan's best films these days are often the more serious ones.

Dredd - Really good film
Flight - Based on a true story starring Denzel Washington. Was OK, skipped through parts of it.
Gunshy - Starring Antonio Banderas. Made it through four minutes before turning it off, was absolutely awful.
Infinity War - Loved it.

The Little Mermaid
The Princess and the Frog

Not seen either before, both were pretty enjoyable.

Can't say I like The Little Mermaid, it was a fave of my kids but that was the target audience, little girls. Its rare that I like Disney songs anyway, but this one was far too campy for me.

Weirdly, I don't think I've seen The Princess in the Frog beyond a few snippets, though I know my grandkids have it (and I have it for them at ours). It just isn't one they ask for.

Watched Prime Suspect 1973 at the weekend. Pretty good reboot prequel, I hope there's more. Casting was great, it's surprising how much like a young Helen Mirren the new actor for Tennison is, they've tried for consistency there at least.

Please tell me you have kids !!!

Watched more The Rain and Westworld, all good. Looking forward to Cargo coming to Netflix on Friday. Been with Netflix quite a while but its really improved the last few months for me personally, a lot to watch on it

Why? It isn't as if this place is dedicated to adult pursuits. The Disney films are cultural icons referenced in so many places, with The Little Mermaid being particularly popular in that regard.

While these wouldn't necessarily be my films of choice, I wouldn't be embarrassed to say I'd seen them.

Fwiw, I waited until the kids were out of the way so I could watch Moana in peace last year. Good movie, I enjoyed it much more than Frozen.

Feel free to buy the latest Barbie game then and let me know if its any good !

Nah i'm disagreeing here ! Full grown adults watching Little Mermaid without kids ? Nah ! So many other films/tv shows to watch !

Granted perhaps i'm wrong and my circle of friends must be different but i would never watch Moana by myself at all. I'm happy as anything that Disney have made a massive massive comeback with a lot of great films but i'm not the target audience for the likes of Moana or Little Mermaid. Never had one work colleague in all these years saying 'you know what film you should watch - Little Mermaid, its superb....'
