I watched Creed again yesterday. What a film. Stallone is flawless in it.

Great soundtrack, great performances, great atmosphere. And the third-act sports training montage, with the beatsy remix of the Rocky theme, is absolutely blinding.

Prevenge

Alice Lowe (Sightseers) stars and directs in this. She plays an expectant mother who is being directed to murder a bunch of people by her unborn child. The victims are great, some real low life creepy fuckers, some not. It's uncomfortable to watch at times but it has its own peculiar sense of humour. Fans of Ben Wheatley's movies should give a look.

I saw The Boss Baby. It was funny and quite charmingly sickly sweet. Solid 3.5/5

Unfinished Business - Mostly decent comedy about a guy quitting his job and setting up his own rival business. He has to close a deal to keep his business afloat and has to chase it accompanied by his two inept employees. Nice background fodder. A gratuitous amount of nudity in it too.

Shyamalan announced his next film on twitter last night. Glass, a sequel to Split...

AND Unbreakable.

Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy.

Wow.

Is Split any good?

Looks ridiculous. Not that I'm adverse to ridiculous films.

Watched The Great Wall the other night, it's silly but watchable.

I didn't see it, trailer looked ridiculous but it got good reviews.

I read the wiki though, and...

Well that was pretty obvious from the ending.

A post credits scene so not a spoiler to the actual movie
Bruce Willis is in it as his character from Unbreakable

Curiosity got the better of me, I watched Split last night.

It's very silly while aiming to be menacing.

There's a heavy-handed message about how 'damaged' people are really strong
(like superhero strong)
I enjoyed the Cloverfield films more, hope to see more of that world.

Re Split
Yeah didn't see it, would have been perfectly obvious otherwise.

Quite surprised it didn't get out, like...wait for the surprise cameo at the end etc.

Boss Baby
My niece summed this film up pretty well, it's about a baby, who's a boss.

She also fell asleep during the climactic scenes.

It's funny enough, Alec Baldwin doing his 30 Rock thing. It's not as smart or emotionally engaging as a Pixar movie, enjoyable but forgettable.

Here's a good one for the rumour mill.

http://www.imdb.com/company/co0147954/

Syncopy Films, Christopher Nolan's company, lists "Bond 25" as a project on IMDb.

Woof.

Just back from Alien:Covenant. I thought it was worse than Prometheus.
