    ★★★★★

    Watched on the big screen in 4K for the 40th
    Anniversary.
    Surprise, surprise one of the best films of all time is even better with a crowd of fans.

    John Carpenter’s masterpiece delivers in every way.
    A lesson to all in how to generate tension.
    A fantastic cast portraying a group of characters that feel real and authentic without any backstory / exposition required.
    Every single line of dialogue, every frame is vital and adds to the piece as a…

    I am a self proclaimed Guillermo Del Toro but.
    I think the man is a genius and the most interesting filmmaker around today.
    The man defies definition, moving seamlessly from project to project each unique but unmistakable from his singular creative vision.

    Whether it’s watches and clockwork, foetuses in jars or a fallen prince character with father issues or even a beautiful but evil human antagonist that reminds us that no creature is more capable of cruelty to match man.…

    Poor Jeffrey Coombs cannot catch a break.
    Always has something horrible happening to him.
    This time a weird tentacle eye thing pops out of his head.

    Well done Romford Vue cinema.
    As promised you provided an unrivalled immersive experience.
    No outside distractions, pure engagement for the viewer.
    Right up until you turned the fucking lights on 10 minutes before the end of the film.

    I want to go to the cinema more often as I think it’s an important part of culture and a unique way to see moving talky pictures.
    But they do make it hard sometimes….

    Oh yeah there is a film to talk…

    Pixar once again got me in the feels.
    Not quite as much as Coco but way more than most films.
    A visual delight accompanied by a great score.
    Jamie Foxx and the rest of the voice cast do a swell job.
    Definitely one of the more adult stories from the studio, not because there’s anything particular scary but due to the deeper messages.
    Not sure kids would get it but I’m sure they’d enjoy the spectacle none the less.
    Also it made me want to listen to jazz

    What a fun film this is.
    Odenkirk is such a likeable fella, I would happily watch him play this character in a whole load of sequels.
    Also how lovely was it to see Christopher Lloyd up and about
