Watched The Golem, a woman creates a golem to protect her village from invaders but fails to realise it will kill whoever she harbours ill will towards. I liked this one, it's a real slow burner but it works really well because of it. Performances are good throughout, the kid playing the golem played it well, creepy and silent. If the slow pace doesn't put you off it's worth a look. Also watched, The Snarling, a no budget horror/comedy, a film crew are making a zombie film in a quiet English country village and a werewolf starts to chew up the locals. A slightly above amateur effort, there's some mildly humorous scenes and dialogue some of which blatantly rip off An American Werewolf but the werewolf effects here due to the zero budget are pretty bad so it makes for a very disappointing watch. The creature on the poster looks cool but the one in the movie I think you'll agree sadly doesn't live up to the image.

Sisters starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (both SNL alumni). This was a very funny movie! They did Baby Mama before this, which was funny but I really liked Sisters.
Terminator: Genisys- Arnold is back again! I know I'm behind on this one as it's a few years old. I liked it. I liked how they explained the Sarah Conner timeline change. We get to see more of the war with the robots in this one and it's chilling.... For me the best Terminator movie will be the second one, but this is a good one, too.

I do hope you join me this Friday night at 8:30pm. The first movie is Godzilla: King of the Monsters starring Raymond Burr. Then, at 10:30, we have a terrifying movie directed by Stephen King, yes, Stephen King the American author, who directed a movie called Maximum Overdrive, based on a short story of his called 'Trucks'.
Whew!, Godzilla is a great movie. Now let me talk about Maximum Overdrive. As a film critic, I can definitely see the influence of that famous director of the 60's/70's, Sam Peckinpah. I will discuss more about Maximum Overdrive after the film finishes.

Rocketman (2019): While it wasn’t perfect, it was greatly improved and much more entertaining than Bohemian Rhapsody was as far as rock star biopics go. Most notably the editing didn’t suck like it did in BR.
One thing that made this film fun to watch were all the imagination segments that went along with the music, and they had a decent variety of songs in the film as well. The special effects and colors were all good as well.
Sadly the film starts out fantastic but eventually starts to become uninteresting and slow in the middle and there were a few scenes where it was hard to tell if they were supposed to be taken seriously or were instead imagined.
Taron Edgerton does a great job as Elton John.
Since this movie only covers Elton John’s life up until him getting sober it basically ends with a slide show exposition dumping everything that’s happened in his life since then, which I can understand why they did that when there’s only so much you can cover in a biopic about someone who is still alive, but it seems kinda weird they would just throw important information like his friendship with Princess Diana or his husband onto a slideshow and treat it like side information.

Overall I enjoyed the film and would definitely recommend it if you like musicals and/or are a fan of Elton John. The best way I can describe it is a much better and more polished version of 2018’s Bohemian Rhapsody, it definitely handles the grittier parts of his life better than Bohemian Rhapsody did.

7/10

I'm not interested about Elton John's life. I would be more interested in Jimmy Page's life. Or Eric Clapton's life. More Jimmy Page's life because I like JImmy Page.
