    Coronavirus

    The biggest complainers about this on the Twitter that I can see are... the English.

    I think it's a bit of both. The comedy is dated and the film was a bit tired anyway.

    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm - Follow up to the 14 year old Borat and you can feel both the character and the method creaking heavily under the age and notoriety of the character. The use of his daughter to do the heavy lifting with the interviews does kind of work but it can't escape the age of the concept. In the end the whole thing feels quite safe in comparison to more modern comedy. It had a few funny bits and I came away thinking a more heavily scripted story would have served the character better but then Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy has never translated well into that field either. Okay but didn't really have any business being made now. 4 out of 10.

    Day to day items that can be ludicrously expensive

    Tried it, it's shite. Thinner and falls apart too easily in the packet.

    Rebecca - The new version from Ben Wheatley. It was okay, I found it lacking in tension or mystery for nearly all of the running time and as a result it made the story feel a bit thin. In fact, anyone watching this without seeing the Hitchcock version, or knowing the high regard the story is held in, might wonder what the fuss is about. If you do know the Hitchcock version then this is a poor cipher. I'm surprised Wheatley made it as it's unlike anything he's made previously and he doesn't really add his own stamp to it. It looks nice, Armie Hammer is good and Lily James (the dirty get) is fine up until the final act when the character takes a more modern approach to things. 5 out of 10

    It's too long too. Agree with the rest.

    Keir Starmer

    Starmer was Mr Remain but Labour got trounced partly because a portion of the electorate didn't like that they were equivocal on Brexit. Starmer has rightly said that the argument is over and won, he can't change it so move on. He needs to have the possible voters see it too so I think it's sensible.

    Don't see what's wrong with saying Mandelson should count his gol... oh. At least the Anti-Semitism shouts will sto... oh.

    I felt there were elements that undermined Corbyn and I didn't care for it. I feel the same about those doing it now, as Abbott is above. The "they did it to Jeremy" shtick wears thin quickly too. Yeah, I know and now you're doing it too. It's childish. None of that is aimed at you specifically btw.

    The Left arguing who's the most Left is painful. Beat the Tories FFS.

    I also see Diane Abbott is on Newsnight tonight giving some shit about Starmer. Terrific work all round again.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Cannot be arsed with any of this whataboutery from either side on this. Look at that Pickford tackle and admit it was a shithouse tackle, it's severely injured a player and it's shite. There have been bad tackles from our lads before and I wouldn't defend or celebrate them and no Evertonian should be doing celebrating or defending Pickford. Add in the injustice of him not getting sent off and it's tough to take.

    A few here, thought I'd done them. Bill and Ted Face the Music - Depends how much you like Bill and Ted, I always loved the original two so I got a lot out of this. Leant a little bit on nostalgia but did move the characters forward and was quite fun in how it depicted them in later life. Great casting for their daughters, especially the Ted's daughter. Alex Winter felt like he hadn't lost a beat, he was terrific throughout. Keanu felt like he'd not quite got it for a bit of the move. Felt like it had too many ideas, couldn't fit them in but the edit didn't cover it. They could've lost the robot though, that felt like a waste of time. Not cynical, fun, bit of a mess. I really enjoyed it. 8 out of 10 Judy - Renee Zellweger as Judy Garland in the last years of her life. Standard biopic tale elevated by a good performance from Zellweger. There's not much else to it but Jessie Buckley is good in a small role. 6 out of 10 Just Mercy - True story of racial injustice in the American South and a courtroom drama too. I love all this stuff in movies, never fails to engage me. Add in Michael B. Jordan, Brie Larson and Jamie Foxx and you're on to a winner. Again, nothing ground-breaking but being well made with a good cast and interesting story goes a long way. 8 out of 10 A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood - Tom Hanks as beloved US kids TV entertainer Fred Rogers and Matthew Rhys as the Esquire journalist sent to profile him and who learns a little on the way. Inherently there's not much beyond cliché here either but Hanks is just a warm screen presence and he presents the basic humanity and goodness that apparently Fred Rogers did have in spades. It's not very long but you come out of it feeling fulfilled and with a warm smile. Hanks for President. 6.5 out of 10 Wild Rose - Jessie Buckley again, this time as the lead, as a Glasgow single mum who's fresh out of prison and wants to be a country star but needs to decide if she wants to be a mum, responsible or follow the dream. Jessie Buckley's fast becoming one of my favourite actors, mad considering I hated her in Taboo, and she carries this film really well and her country renditions are excellent. 8 out of 10
