The Irishman. 
 

Just finished it for a second time. Yes it’s too long, self serving, it’s slow paced (that doesn’t bother me) and could never live up to the weight of expectation. 
 

But watching it now without the fuss, it’s still a bloody good film. 
 

8/10

 

I've been thinking of giving it another go. You're spot on about the expectation thing Col, It was good but given the cast and director I was expecting it to be almost Goodfellas levels of brilliance. It doesn't discredit the film by saying it gets nowhere near it but it was still good. Gonna watch it this weekend now but turn it off half an hour before the end because the way it dragged out almost sent me to sleep.

That Tenet is available on Sky Movies from tonight , can't remember the consensus on here , Worth a watch?

Made less sense the second time I watched. Not sure how that's possible but it's possibly something to do with the entropy of time they were on about. Or something.

I think it was film marmite with split opinions. I liked it.

Avengers: Age of Ultron - 9/10. This is far better watched in the context of where the MCU is now, up to and including WandaVision. There are so many hints and set ups of things that are four, five or even six films beyond this, it’s incredible.
 

I guess they’re always working off existing material which helps, but it’s the tiny details. Things like Stark and Rogers joking about Stark building a farm for him and Pepper to start a family or Vision sweeping Wanda up in his arms to lift her out of Sokovia and the look she gives him. 
 

This is clever, nuanced story-telling of the kind that’s never been done before and I love it. 

It’s actually frustrating to hearing how ‘I don’t know watch that kids stuff’ or ‘ that crap superhero stuff’. It’s actually good. Some of it is really, really good.

Nah, no it's not. Anyway...

 

Stowaway - 3 astronauts encounter problems on their journey to Mars.

 

Toni Collette and Anna Kendrick star in this moribund tale, really well acted but hardly the feel good, pick me up you might want to watch on this shameful day of politics.

 

6/10

Apart from the Kick Ass films I haven't seen a good one yet. In fact most of them make me want to put a boot through my TV.

They're just popcorn fun. The supposed genius of including things in films that get referenced later is a bit laughable, but they're still a decent watch, the Avengers movies in particular- the rest are a bit of a mixed bag, but the Thor ones are quite amusing.

Fair enough. I disagree. I think a lot of the Marvel ones are good or excellent, especially Guardians of the Galaxy, Wandavision, Endgame, Iron Man, and Infinity War, then outside there’s stuff like Deadpool and Logan. I get it might not be your thing but there’s some very well written material in there in my view.

While I don’t necessarily think it’s genius to reference stuff, I think the way they’ve done things across multiple movies, years apart, over several different story arcs is actually well thought out, well written, and well planned. I think some of them are clearly just popcorn crunchers, but there’s more meat on the bones of some of the stuff.

Most superhero movies are shite with a few honourable exceptions

 

Sam Rami's first two Spiderman films

The first 3 Superman films with Christopher Reeve

Kickass 1 (2 was shit)

Dead Pool 2

WandaVision

Assuming they are drawing from the comics in some capacity, it is hard to praise the story telling when it's already been inked. 

 

The Bane destroys Batman shocker in the last Christian Bale version is certainly a shock to the system but Bane breaking Batman's back is already part of the comics.

Storytelling is more about how you tell a story, not the story itself.

 

I could waffle on about the best movie ever, and describe what happens in it, and make it sound like the biggest pile of shite ever.

Agree on your last sentence. I’m not arsed if other people don’t like it though. My view on that is 50:50, fair fucks/your loss.

Yeah. It’s the fact that it’s so nuanced that’s impressive. And as I said previously, they’re doing something that’s never been attempted before on this scale in the history of cinema. But again, who cares if others disagree? As long as they’re not deliberately pissing on chips, it never bothers me.

Exactly. And Netflix is awash with examples of literature adapted for the screen that fuck it up. There’s a reason the Oscars have an award for it.

I watched ‘Promising Young Woman’ last night. A decent enough watch, with some important messages.
 

These probably failed to land with me in the way they were meant to however. As I went to sleep it wasn’t these I was thinking of, it was Carey Mulligan in her nurses outfit. 
 

7/10.

I'm writing a story about a woman who goes to the shop and succeeds in buying a loaf of bread. It's going to be ace.
