    I just watched this yesterday, I was surprised when Vin Diesel popped up in it, very unexpected.

    Grosse Pointe Blank

    A professional assassin's return to his home town, to carry out a hit, coincides with his ten year high school reunion.

    I love this film, but it's got to be almost twenty years since I last watched it.

    Monster Island: what even is this/10

    The Asylum tries to be less crappy. Fails. I wanted kaiju. Next time I'll just watch Gamera.

    Holy fook, I never realised they were the same year! GPB always seemed a lifetime before GWH for some reason. Daaaaamn. I feel old.

    Yep. When you speak to someone you think 'oh he looks like he's my age' then you mention something that draws a blank expression, you find out they're 10 years older than you. :sigh:

    WW 84 - 5/10
    too long, too dramatic, too dependent on the previous movie.

    This slippage phenomenon gets even more awkward when it comes to the aforementioned ogling of ladies in old films, because you go "oooh" then realise you're old enough to be her dad, then wiki it and realise she is old enough to be your mum :lol:

    If Diane Lane was in fact my Mum, I'd be checking myself in somewhere about now.

    Twist - 6/10
    Not particularly bad, but not outstanding good either.
    The parcours isn't nearl as good as in, say "District B13", the optics of the movie sometimes have this strange "too sharp" cheap movie look, but the music is good and it moves along nicely.3

    The Harder They Fall, 0/10. Even as background noise it was terrible.

    Bond/ Twice

    Both times were good. I don't care what other people think about it, I thought it was a worthy finish.

    The Matrix Reloaded & The Matrix Revolution - 7/10

    I get it now, I totally get it. I completely blocked these films from my memory when they came out, but watching them again after 17 years.... I get it. Yeah. I watched the trailer for The Matrix 4: Resurrection right after and... I'm hyped af for that now. Please please PLEASE re-open the Gallery, Odeon!

    The original Matrix film was 22 years ago in 1999.

    EDIT: I got it wrong in my last post, Reloaded & Revolutions were out in 2003, 18 years ago...

    You're not helping :worried: Bloody hell, where has the time gone?
    Although I have had a nice flash back whilst thinking about replying or not, about my first cinema trip, it was to The Wrath of Kahn when I was 9 :idea:
    Oh how I wish for those simpler times, what I would do then knowing what I know now......
