I went out for a few jars on Friday night. Unfortunately this led to Saturday having a top 5 all time hangover. Didn’t manage to get out of bed (except for toilet visits for shit and/or spew) until 4pm.


Fortunately, my missus was out on Saturday night and the daughter was at a sleepover at a friends house, so me and the boy got in a delivery from Sal’s Authentic New York Pizza and stuck on The Fellowship of the Ring (he’s just finished reading the books for the first time).

 

Considering it’s twenty years old the cinematography/effects, etc hold up brilliantly well. The character development was a bit worse than I remember - especially outside of Frodo/Sam/Gandalf/Aragorn. I seem to remember posting once that I thought Orlando Bloom did a decent job as Legolas, but maybe I was wrong, he’s pretty terrible, although perhaps he gets better in the later films. Sean Bean is pretty good.

 

The boy liked it, and didn’t complain about the lack of Tom Bombadil.

 

I’ll give it 8/10

Last Night In Soho is an 8/10 for me. You may score it a bit lower if you don't love the style and music of the 1960s or Anya Taylor Joy. It's made by Edgar Wright and is a psychological horror film I guess. Less laughs than Shaun Of The Dead but two more Smiths cover stars. The girl out of Jojo Rabbit is excellent and it may well be the last performance of Diana Rigg.

Awful film and clearly created by a focus group of people who’ve never been to Soho who were asked the simple question ‘What do you imagine Soho to be like?’

Without remorse 2/10.

I thought it was going to be a Jack Ryan but it's same author Tom Clancy, made for Amazon 

The best, toughest, blah blah navy seals caper.

Shit story, shit cast, shit locations. Shit choice.

It is and i assumed that was why the film is dedicated to her at the start. I thought this was decent enough as well, nicely filmed, a great soundtrack and the Jojo Rabbit girl did a fantastic job of that slide into madness/paranoia. The end wasn't great though. 6.5/10

Seriously. If you haven't seen End of Watch - get it watched.

 

The end. 

This is on Netflix now. If you like US Cop films then you need to watch this if you haven't. Funny, brutal the lot. Solid 8/10.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

 

Not bad, entertained me for 2 hours. Kids weren’t that annoying and the end got me in the feels.  7/10

Its All Over Town was on earlier, i wasnt really watching it but from what i did see it was dreadful. 

Nothing against Frankie Vaughn as he done a lot for boys clubs and boxing clubs for kids but still.

Rome: Open City

Paisan

Germany: Year Zero

 

Three films made immediately after WWII, set in Rome, Italy and Berlin.

 

That immediacy really adds to the stories, which run from bittersweet to full-on tragic.

Really enjoyed it too.

 

Have you ever see In The Heart of The Ocean? I think that's even better imo.
