  1. Don't get the clamour over the Queen's Gambit, I wasn't that taken with it at all.
  2. Warrior's great fun, it being cut down in it's prime is a travesty.

    Dark Waters - Real life story of Dupont chemicals knowingly allowing PFOA into the local water supply which caused widespread health issues among the human and animal population. Illustrating the rapacious nature of American capitalism, the nature of justice that's visited upon massive US corporations and the tenaciousness of people under duress, this is fascinating but also fairly standard stuff for the genre. Enjoyable but you're not going to see anything groundbreaking, you might be angry about the callousness of people. 7.5 out of 10

    If their goal is to get trans/disabled/autistic actors more roles then this isn't the way to do it. The end game is you can't have a straight person play a gay role or vice versa, or have Dev Patel play David Copperfield for example. There needs to be better representation in acting but I'd be more concerned about working/lower middle class people being shut out of the acting profession.

    Dangerous ground when roles have to be taken up by the exact demographic that the character requires.

    Never, Rarely, Sometimes, Always - Drama film about a 17 year old who needs to get an abortion after accidentally getting pregnant. Shot almost like a documentary with a natural style I thought this was terrific. Moving, difficult to watch and an unflinching portrayal of the shit that women deal with on a daily basis that we never give a second thought to. Both lead actresses are great, they really add to the sense that you're watching real life rather than fiction. It's not an easy watch but it's great. 9 out of 10

    Jojo Rabbit - Clever mix of sweet friendship, the horror of Nazi rule and Taika Waititi's usual absurd, natural New Zealand comedy. It shouldn't work, and the headline of Waititi playing Hitler is a bit of a mislead, but it does and has an emotional heart to it that isn't unsurprising if you've seen Boy or Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Some may not like it but the young lad in the main role is exceptional and Thomasin McKenzie continues to be a fantastic actor following Leave No Trace. Silly, emotional, affecting, worth watching 8.5 out of 10
  10. Eh? What about it? Controversial twist on a popular thread. Probably a few rules like demos don't count and if you've only played it for 30 minutes that doesn't count either. If you can review and describe games that you've completed, that may make for a more complete experience although I understand that bad games generally don't get completed because they're, y'know, bad.

    I knew it had good reviews but I'm always a bit ambivalent with Dickens adaptations. I wasn't surprised as such but I did find it a lot more funny than I thought it could be. Any time Tilda Swinton and Hugh Laurie were on-screen was the source of most of it.

    The Personal History of David Copperfield - Armando Iannucci's version of the Charles Dickens novel with a more comedic slant. I've not read the book, though I'm aware of the broad plot, and the film took a few liberties with the source material but it's charming enough with a sly line in humour and a good cast. Dev Patel is an engaging lead and there's great support from Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi, Ben Whishaw and a really funny Tilda Swinton. Dickens adaptations aren't for everybody but this has enough of a modern eye whilst keeping the same time period as the novel. 7 out of 10

    First Reformed - Film from Paul Schrader, starring Ethan Hawke as a minister losing his faith amidst the difficulties of a young couple in his congregation. If any film could be typical Paul Schrader then this is it. It bares all of his hallmarks and the beats of the story share similarities with, among other things, Taxi Driver. I wouldn't call it a tough watch but then not would I also call it an easy watch. It's thought-provoking and Ethan Hawke is really engaging as the minister who's not sure about anything any more. I don't really want to give plot details away, not that it's especially dense with plot, but it's a grown-up film of the kind that's difficult to find these days. 8.5 out of 10
