It's not the best wanking material, probably on par with The Elephant Man, but you should give it a try.

Watched The Maradonna documentary last night, it could've done with an extra hour & the end was heartbreaking. People talk about George Best but this guy really threw it all away (after conquering the World to be fair)...

 

9/10

Yeah. Watched this a few days back and I agree. This lad won Napoli a second league title,to go with their first one and a UEFA Cup a few years earlier,while addicted to cocaine and not being arsed half of the time. An absolute football genius. In retrospect,if he'd have been allowed to leave when he asked,I think it was after their UEFA Cup win? things may have been very different and he might still be with us.

The Traitor (Il Traditore) 8.5/10.

 

Mentioned this on another thread. Its about the story of Tomasso Buschetta the Mafia informer,his testimonies and what happened during and after all of it. Very good film.

One of the best documentaries I've seen.

Superb

Nomadland is pretty good.

Interestingly, it has a lower rating on IMDB (scandalous 7.3) than Promising Young Woman (7.5) which I had to bin after half an hour total crappiness. I don't really understand this world anymore.

Come And See

 

If gritty Belarusian dramas about the war are your cup of tea then you'll love this.

 

Some ropey acting apart, this is very good. Very good but grim as fuck.

 

7/10 Nodi Fen Real Debrid

I watched both to the end and preferred Promising Young Woman myself. 

 

Both are well worth watching like.

1917 - great video game 6/10.

 

TLDR part:

The story famously makes little sense, and people with more than a basic knowledge of the WWI will be gasping in disbelief at the silliness on the screen, but it is a fast paced first person shooter in the first half so you tend not to think so much about mistakes and plotholes and anyway, this is how we do period pieces now, no one seems to care anymore.

 

Second half, suddenly the night falls and all the cliches in the world start cropping up like vampires, there is (of course) some saintly young French or Belgian women with someone's hungry baby in her hands (I was fully expecting some hot lovemaking by the fire), there is escaping by jumping in the river for some white water rafting in the middle of Belgian plains (there are even rocky shores and a big waterfall, why not), British soldiers listening to a mournful song (like soldiers do at the end of the Paths Of Glory, except that in Kubrick's film the scene serves as a brilliantly understated cathartic moment for the main character and here has no obvious meaning) and the song is for some unexplained reason The Wayfaring Stranger, an American folk song, again, why not. Then there is the obligatory scene of wounded in the field hospital, which is of course fully operational barely five minutes after the attack has been called off. And about a hundred more things.

 

Camera work is great, explosions realistic, acting and productions values superb.  Shame the screenplay was written buy a computer game developer.

I.d

 

Surely the phrase "that shit,its actually good'was coined for this film.

How it wasnt nominated for an oscar back in 1995 is a modern day travesty.

Brilliant.

Help

 

Channel 4 film about the spread of covid within care homes.

 

Starring Jodie Comer and Stephen Graham, the cast, acting, script and direction is incredible.

 

Absolutely harrowing and incredibly powerful filmmaking. Should be mandatory viewing for anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers everywhere.

 

10/10 All 4 app

Kate. 5/10. Netflix film. Sorry, watched this last Saturday but couldn't be arsed rating it at that point. a mixture of DOA and any one of the Nikita variants you care to choose. Set in Tokyo, wholly unoriginal, and notable for only two things - the worst CGI car chase ever (and I include anything north of Fast Five in that regard), and some decent hand to hand combat sequences. Not really one to bother with.

I've been listening to The Rewatchables podcast a lot, and yesterday listened to the Goodfellas one, brilliant, so last night I put the movie on and watched it again.  Brilliant.  

 

One thing bugs me still... In the film Jimmy (De Niro) meets Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) when Henry is a teenager, and Jimmy is supposed to be a 20 something.  Jimmy then introduced Henry to Tommy (Pesci) who is supposed to be a similar age, two young men starting to do bits for him. 

 

But when we move to present day in the film, Liotta looks like he's early 30's, Pesci looks like he's late forties, and De Niro looks the same as he did before.  

 

In real life Pesci and De Niro are the same fucking age.  

 

Nit-picky I know, but cmon...
