It's cos of the lack of cinema thing. I think the price is about right especaily if you're watching as a family. Still a shite film though.
I’m out of touch! I thought it was about £4.

mind you the last time I rented a film, it was a DVD about 20 years ago!

Aye, a bit but I didn't explain well. It's instead of a cinema release, so they charge a premium to watch it before you can rent or buy like it would be normally. Rentals after things have been at the cinema are quite cheap - normally a couple of quid on itunes.

Wasted 16 quid on renting Wonder Woman 1984.

I might learn now to believe reviews
, so at least there's that. Managed 55 minutes.
I go by the Guardian and Roger Ebert. Also take a look on Rotten Tomatoes. Sometimes you get a film that is rated good by the critics but poor by the general audience.

I'd expect a nosh in a comfy recliner while watching any movie I'd paid $16 to see.

But.. is Gal Gadot hot enough to warrant the £16..?

I haven't watched it yet, but it's a shame that it seems to be fairly universally disliked, as I really liked the first one. £16 is just so much money when I have 50 odd films already on Netflix, Sky, Prime watchlists..

Watched tenet. Too many action scenes and you would want a phd in theoretical physics to understand it.

Then i didnt know what he was chasing. First it was inverted bullets, the an art picture by Goya, then plutonium, then something else.

Had the phone out a lot while watching it. I think Nolan will have to be careful what film he does next. People are getting tired of the gratuitious actions scenes.

Come and See

Watched it for the first time since high school. Understandably considered one of the greatest war films. The guy who plays the protagonist is an amazing actor and honestly carries the film.

The Infirmary
Vampires vs. The Bronx
A Group of kids fight to protect the Bronx from vampires. Tried to capture that 80s essence of dweeby kids saving the day but it didn't work. They let on waaaay too early that the vampires are real, when they should have played the idea of whether the kids are being paranoid or not. Summer of '84 is a much better version of this. With that said, this did have some funny bits and the main vampire chick was hot 4/10

no-one in particular
I saw the 2018 Robin Hood film with Taron Egerton on Netflix tonight. It's crap. The first five minutes have the most cliché voiceover I've heard in ages, and it doesn't improve after. Character motivations make little sense, action scenes are an unfollowable mess, jokes miss their mark, and basically the whole thing is a poor attempt at being cool.

Don't be like me. Watch something else.

Watched Chef with the kids last night. I've seen it before but was great fun watching it again with them. The scene where they sing Sexual Healing always makes me smile.
