    Saw Overlord today, I enjoyed it a lot more than I was expecting. There was a review that called it ďan A-grade movie for B-grade tastesĒ which made me laugh, but itís on the money

    It was just a good, fun matinee-style movie. The cast was great, it was nicely shot, and the action was very well done. They nailed the tension too.

    Obviously some of the special effects are dated but I think it holds up, I think it is underrated actually.

    Liam Neeson is particularly good as Darkman, the tortured soul, and the battle within him gives the film depth, felt a bit like The Crow when I was watching it. Not just another crusader for justice.

    Durant is an excellent antagonist, the finger fetish was a nice touch.

    Has a good ending as well.

    Just had a viewing of One Cut of the Dead.
    It is one of the most enjoyable films I have seen in ages.

    I don't know if it has/will be widely shown in Australian cinemas, some film festivals have showings. If anyone gets a chance to go see it, or view it by other measures, then they are in for a treat.

    The 37 minute, one shot opening is a prelude to an even better final act.

    Not just another zombie film.

    Hopefully gonna see Free Solo this week.

    A documentary about free solo rock climbing the El Capitan. I can feel the gravity just watching it on a screen.

    Saw Alita: Battle Angel last night. The early trailers had looked pretty dodgy to me, but the effects in the most recent ones (particularly for Alita) looked significantly improved, so some friends talked me into seeing it.

    I was actually really impressed: while some of the characters were very one dimensional, thatís probably my only criticism. The effects are spectacular, particularly for Alita, whoís actually able to properly emote on screen (much like Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War). If that hadnít worked then the whole movie wouldíve been a failure, but Alita is actually (surprisingly) very easy to watch on screen. The world itself feels nicely fleshed out and real, the action is really well done, the design is good, and I found the pacing to be excellent.

    Iím really hoping it does well at the box office and we see some big budget sequels. Also, FWIW, a few of the people I saw it with were big fans of the original source material, and the movie got their seal of approval.

    Early reports are it is set to be a box office flop. Surprised to hear it was a decent movie, it has a troubled journey getting onscreen.

    I will watch it when it streams, but I will go out on a limb and say that I do not rate James Cameron as a writer. The last good movie he wrote was either Rambo 2 or The Abyss. I donít count Aliens or T2 because they were reworked stories of their previous movies.

    As far as digital effects, every movie with a decent budget has great CGI, but he does generally pioneer a lot of tech in his movies. But as a writer he has been stale for a very long time.

    And Rambo 2 was virtually completly rewritten by Stallone from what I heard.

    The last great movie was probably True Lies.

    Saw Captain Marvel and it's Ok. Entertaining, but little substance really. The weakest of the solo origin movies IMO in terms of character development (at least in terms of titular characters).
