Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train (2021) - 9/10

Really faithful to the source material and glad I got to Weeb out in a cinema. Really enjoyed it.

Nobody (2021) 7/10

A fun action thriller. Story itself is nothing special but Bob Odenkirk adds a high level of likeability, action scenes are well done, soundtrack is on point & it's great seeing Christopher Lloyd in action.

For the car geeks, from IMDB:
Hutch's neighbor describes the 1972 Dodge Challenger he inherited as being equipped with the 4.9L V8. Dodge never equipped the challenger with a 4.9L V8 in 1972, or any other year for that matter. In 1972 specifically, the engine options for a challenger were the 3.7 L slant-6, 5.2 L V8, and the 5.6 L V8. Any car enthusiast will catch this goof immediately. It could have been avoided with minimal research.

Score's about right.

Much more of a drama than action.

Some images will remain in my head for far too long. :sick:

The Marksman (2021) 5 / 10

Feeling generous. Uses every movie formula in the book.

Including the bad guy shoots dog one.

Had this on my watchlist for a while. Decided to check rating before I watch.
Think I will delete rather :X3:

If it’s Ruby Rose and it’s an action movie, you don’t even need to bother downloading it.

Not sure who decided she’s an action star, but she isn’t.

Made me go 'ah the days I popped into cinema nouveau for an "art flick"'. It was not particularly bad, but not great either. Perhaps if I knew art and art critics more :unsure:

13 Going on 30 (2004) - 7.5/10. I'm being very generous but whatever, it's a surprisingly solid and thoughtful take on Big with relationships that feel authentic.

I see this local babe is in said film.

What's your take on her in the film?

Nobody (2021) - 26/10

I loved everything about this fillm. The cliche premise, the humour amongst the action, the goddamn action, the music, the car, the feel good vibes.

It's not perfect, 26 may be slightly high, but it's how I feel immediately after watching it.

I imagine this works better for your 30 and up crowd though, just in terms of the soundtrack. But when I'm singing out loud when Pat Benatar comes on, they've made a great choice.
