Watched Trainspotting 2 last night. Disappointing.
I'm very interested in the Camino and will be watching this.Not the last movie I have watched but one of my favourite films.
If you are interested in the Way of St. James (Camino de Santiago) this movie is a must. Watched it more than 10 times.
Wikipedia link with further information. For those who never heared about it.
I really wanted to like it but it was just dreadful. Characters you couldn't tell apart, and simply didn't care about even if you could, dreadful dialogue and acting, unbelievably bad CGI, Fassbinder absolutely wasted.Alien Covenant
The two first thirds left me rather skeptical, but the last third of the film is the epitome of the original trilogy and convinced me eventually. (a few cameos in the movie)
Fassbender is truly brilliant, a great actor indeed and one of my favourites for sure.
He also gave us Robin Hood. He hasn't done decent film in years, seventeen in fact. Black Hawk Down.I really wanted to like it but it was just dreadful.

I stuck it out as far as the bit where he's learning the flute and then left. Maybe the last third was better, as you say but that is still a bad film. I was frankly staggered that the guy who gave us Blade Runner, one of the finest films of the 20th century, directed this shite.
My feelings precisely. Not what I was expecting at all....and the beach which supposedly had 400,000 troops looked more deserted than the beach in Barry, mid December.Saw Dunkirk a couple of days ago. Sadly, very disappointing
Hans Zimmer's ghastly 'score' overwhelms everything with a cacophony of wailing strings and crashing horns, screaming emothional instructions at the audience every couple of minutes. The cinematography is dreadful, with the dark blue turned up to 11, so that it all looks like a 1990s Kronenbourg advert. Heck, the British troops' helmets actually appear as dark blue/grey instead of service brown. Incredibly, Nolan manages to make something as intrinsically exciting and cinematic as aerial combat actually boring. Not content with slapping a trendy muddy filter over the lens, he then has Tom Hardy's Spitfire, an aircraft with a top speed of c400mph, pursue a Heinkel with all the energy of a tractor bearing down on a hedgehog.
There is no plot or character development, no-one to care about, the scale of the battle is not portrayed at all, historical errors all over the place like incorrect rank slides, inexhaustible ammunition and aircraft in combat despite no engine power.
I stuck it out for about an hour and then left. The critics are absolutely wrong about this one.
Absolutely. Not to mention that the BEF was entirely mechanised. They abandoned 20,000 motorcycles and 65,000 other vehicles at Dunkirk plus nearly 500 tanks. The beach would have looked like a car park but in the film was practically empty...My feelings precisely. Not what I was expecting at all....and the beach which supposedly had 400,000 troops looked more deserted than the beach in Barry, mid December.
