    Live by night 8/10. Excellent film with a great cast. One of Affleck's best performances.

    Forgot it was 2017.

    I do want to see that, looks like a good film.

    I watched Brotherhood, same as the Kidulthood type films. Typical bit of gangster action, easy watch.

    Same. First one is one of my all time favourites. I really hope this one is good.

    No reviews yet. Could be a bad thing. Usually reviews are in before a week to go, but it's not always the case of course.

    I haven't even seen the first one.

    Seen The Accountant? I have to admit, I'm enjoying Affleck's films too much, these days.

    Also, as I mentioned elsewhere, Spectral is worth a look on Netflix, as is The Arrival.

    Yes I did, I enjoyed that as well, I thought he was terrible as Batman though, but Christian Bale was brilliant and it was always going to be a hard task to follow.

    Only Batman film I've not only not enjoyed, but not been able to finish. And I include Batman and Robin in that.

    Terrible Batman, just terrible. And he's got a few more films to go. :/

    Really?! That's unbelievable !
    And that's often the reaction I get when I tell people I've never seen a Star wars film.

    I've never seen a Star Wars film either Clint, I can't stand sci-fi! Also, I really didn't get into the original Trainspotting movie, so I'll be giving the new one a wide berth! However, I've just finished watching Hacksaw Ridge on Kodi. Excellent film. Very graphic and best of all, it's based on a real person. Great direction from Mel Gibson.

    Just watched Trainspotting for the first time and really enjoyed it, might even go cinema to see the second one but I really hate the cinema

    I hadn't seen Star Wars until Episode 7 came out, then the wife made me watch all of them back to back. It's....alright.

    Worst one was some kids film "Sing" I think. Put it on for my six year old and it was bloody Bad Neighbours which starts with a sex scene. If nipped into the kitchen as I started it to get her a drink and just heard "Daddy, I don't think this is appropriate for me".

    Split 7/10 very good film. McAvoy was very good. The ending was completely unexpected.

    I just can't take Ben Affleck seriously as Bruce Wayne and the suit and batmobile are terrible. And I've never liked Superman so that might be it.

    I'll give it another go, literally got bored and went to sleep.

    I've only ever seen the Blu-ray version of Batman v Superman and still think it sucked donkey balls.
