'Kong: Skull Island' (2017)

Plot: IMDB
A diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers unite to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.

Phantom's Review: Let me say right at the beginning, I liked this movie. It delivers everything it promised. Decent acting, great special FX , monster fights and lots of big dumb action. If anything the film reminds less of the original film and more of the Japanese Kong movies. Leave your brain at the door and have a good time.

Don't Breathe  2016



Pretty decent thriller up to a point with some nice twists until the plot takes a dumb u turn in the final quater and spoils things..

Transcendence

Directed by Wally Pfister.. Generally regarded as one of the best DP's in the business having worked with Christopher Nolan on Dark Knight, Inception etc... This is his directorial debut..

Starring Johnny Depp

This film tanked on release, lost money and got pretty bad reviews all round..

I enjoyed it, reminded me of Sci fi movies from the 70's like Andromada Strain, Silent Running etc.. I thought
it had good ideas, was well acted, ambitious, was surprisingly low on big crowd pleasing scenes and concentrated more on ideas.. and I think its a film that has plenty of them and isnt afraid to make its ideas central..
Interesting, not perfect  (some clunky dialogue.. what sci fi doesnt have)  but good effort.. Brave and interesting.

I'd be interested to hear what any other members thought..

Well it took me a while  :)
Nevertheless I didn't like it.Great idea but,the acting was bad,there was no such thing as the so called  director's touch and the result was a film with no soul...
