I watched that justice league film. Strangely a 4 hour film where the ending felt rushed. It was okay the heroes just seem a bit shit compared to the Marvel stuff. I nearly pissed myself at the end when some Martian manhunter fucker turned up to introduce himself he should of said "I am serious lack of ideas man" . I am bored shitless with the hero who is supposed to be dry and pithy and makes a funny comment at a serious moment time and time again to the annoyance of his fellow heroes but how very funny. Must be why I hate spiderman the little prick narrating his own movements telling jokes to him self chuck the cunt in a bath and watch him drown ill pay to see that one.

 

It gets most of its marks for gal gadots thighs and Amber heards general physicall magnificence. Just call me Mr Misogyny my Cape better be ironed I've got glass ceilings to defend.

Thunder Force - 6/10. A Melissa McCarthy vehicle. It was ok. 
 

Two Distant Strangers - 7.5/10. An Oscar nominated short starring Joey Bada$$ as a lad who is killed every morning by a cop in a Groundhog Day scenario. It’s decent. Not especially subtle, but a pretty powerful message. It looks great though.

A fifth Indiana Jones movie is being made. Of course, because the fourth one went so well. 

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is involved as an actor and writer so hopefully that might help it a bit.

The Mauritanian

 

True story about the abduction, torture and subsequent trial of a man accused of playing a part in 9/11.

 

Starring Jodie Foster, Shaileen Woodley, and the guy who played the murderer in BBC's recent The Serpent, it's decent without ever being fantastic.

 

The fella is excellent in this but as a whole, I don't think it deserves too many Oscar nominations.

 

7/10 Kodi Seren Real Debrid

 

The Mauritanian - Amazon Prime

 

Mr rb14 and I loved this, if "loved" is the right word for a dramatisation that is disturbing and harrowing, yet comes as no surprise. 

 

9.5/10

God's Own Country - Drama about the burgeoning relationship between a lad struggling to keep his family's farm going in Yorkshire and the Romanian worker who comes to help out. As the title would suggest it's set in Yorkshire and takes full advantage of the bleak but beautiful surroundings. It appears to lean into cliché before switching around your expectations of where the story/characters will go and I really enjoyed it. 8 out of 10

 

Palm Springs - Groundhog Day but with more existential dread. It would be classed as comedy but it didn't generate a lot of laugh out loud moments for me. I did find it very engaging though, both leads were good, and it did ask, and answer, more of the questions that a film like Groundhog Day would generate. 8.5 out of 10

Watched Palm Springs ourselves tonight and all four of us enjoyed it. I’d go 8/10. Considering the whole time loop trope I think they actually did something pretty original. Plus Andy Samberg is ace.

The Mauritanian 

 

True story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi who was detained at Guantanamo without charge. Bastards. 8.5/10. 

 

 

I couldn't help but think that I had no idea if he was guilty or innocent, so I couldn't root for him. I mean, his brother called him from Bin Laden's phone....that's in the 'maybe' pile for me. 

Sure, I understand the premise and the outrage, but we're only outraged because we're made to think he's innocent.  And why did he delete everything in his phone before?

Dark Encounter (2019) - low budget sci fi/horror about a young girl who goes missing. Set in the US midwest - but shot entirely in Yorkshire with British actors, which is remarkable when you watch it. Anyway, I thought it was decent if you like sci fi, with nice special effects and good acting and - without giving the game away - a bit of a tough-to-watch last quarter. 6.5/10.

Are we doing documentaries as well? 

The Dissident - 9.4/10

A deconstruction of the Kashoggi murder and the supervillains in Saudi Arabia who dismembered him for being a pain in their arse. 

Eye-opening...

Pegasus.

Bees.

Scary stuff.

I too cared about his possible guilt, but that faded to almost total insignificance. Not because I was made to believe he was innocent, but against the backdrop of the utter disgrace that was Guantanamo. Not just America but we too have blood on our hands in that regard; we stood by. 

 

Five convictions out of the 700+ incarcerated there?

Palm Springs 8.5/10. A great recommendation from here.  It is a few parts Groundhog Day, a few parts Safety Not Guaranteed and a few parts FAQ About Time Travel.

Sound of Metal - 8/10. Really powerful drama about a drummer who goes rapidly deaf. You can see why Riz Ahmed and the film itself got the big Oscar nominations.

Haven’t seen it yet but hopefully it means more drummers (or even musicians) see the importance of using hearing protection.
 

Something that’s criminally under thought / promoted in the community. 

 

Looking forward to checking it out.

    • It was the gimp, I think. 
    • They’re really milking this deal. 
    • I know there’s no time for two club cunts on here but Sporting just need 4 points to clinch the Premeira. Three years ago they were known as the worst run club in world football, when their president paid supporters to attack players at the training ground. Just goes to show anything is possible and you are never as far away as you think. All done on a shoestring budget, with a rookie manager and a bunch of punk kids. Big Seb Coates finally came good.
    • The irony is that almost every other club would kill to be in the position that City and Chelsea are in.
      Everton would be top of that list, yet proudly spout about how they “called out” the breakaway six and spoke for every other club when they called for sanctions against them. The purpose of those sanctions were to allow themselves to be bumped into a position where they could “qualify” for a European place that they hadn’t actually earned as much as anything else and to claim differently is basically a lie.
      West Ham, Brighton and Crystal Palace, with rent-a-quote chairman Steve Parrish, again pontificating about how these teams should be brought to book, yet wanting to null and void last season to protect themselves against possible relegation whilst saying it was morally wrong to play on given lives were being lost. They refuse to see that in applauding City and Chelsea for breaking away, and back into the Premier League, all that is guaranteeing is they strengthen those clubs with Oligarchs or Oil States as owners to continue dominating every competition they are in, effectively taking the competitiveness away from those very same competitions!
      The ESL wasn’t handled very well in its timing or proposed implementation, but the general idea that it would possibly limit the massive money teams and allow others to challenge them was a sound one, but the blinkers were on from the time the announcement was made and the “little 14”, as opposed to the “big 6”, basically decided to hold onto what they had rather than what they might have had. It won’t go away though and they must know that, even if the current voting regulations in the Premier League give them the whip hand, and effectively a veto, for anything the top teams might want to bring in. A quick look at who has won the major prizes in European competition and domestic leagues over the past few seasons will show them why the current system needs changes to be made. They’re all hypocrites though, and will bury their collective heads in the sand while the really big boys dry bum them.
