    Not into boxing, but jeebus! That's some tale. Morrisson looked a beast, how far could he have gone if he'd knuckled down?

    Rugby Union World Cup - Japan - 2019

    I think Wales's sluggishness was a hangover from making 13 replacements for the Uruguay game. Gatland has played a blinder with his selections (not to mention his luck). Badly need a fit Jonathan Davies (and maybe a start for Patchell) in the next game. We need to get back into playing the kind of creative, cocky rugby to be in with a chance the next game.

    Have to say it's the best I've seen France play in a long, long time.

    The Day Shall Come. Chris Morris's latest 'terrorist' film. Stylistically similar to Four Lions. But supplanted into modern day Miami. A mentally unbalanced Black Islamist wannabe messiah gets embroiled into the FBI's machinations. Its a funny film. And if viewed as such, with no research into the facts t's a solid 7/10 satire. I subsequently found out it is based on actual entrapment techniques used by the US government to indefinitely jail non-white 'radicals'. In that light its a damning indictment of how far the leaders if the 'free world' will go to perpetuate the idea of the boogey-man to shit-up a white western consumerist society. For that alone it's a must-watch film. 9.11/10

    Climate change - how arsed are you?

    I hear this all the time off people and I just don't buy this argument. In fact it isn't even an argument and it bugs me. It's failure to engage with the issue by saying 'why bother? We're all fucked anyhow'. It's an excuse not to bother and it's pure defeatism. The fact is there has been a momentum behind tackling climate change for decades now. There's opportunity in it and money to be made and money to be saved. And that's how it begins.. You're bang on right though. Our generation hasn't a hope in hell of meeting the targets it's set itself. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't at least make a start on it. The next generation might have a chance of some level of mitigation if we put the infrastructure in place. The next after them might even start to find a way to reverse the human impact on climate change. They won't reverse climate change of course as - geologically speaking - the earth is coming out of a cold cycle and climate change is inevitable. But we can learn the strategies needed to slow it down. And hopefully stop the catastrophic effects of accelerated global warming. Then we can talk about relocating the billions of people that lives along our coasts. My take on it is: in the short term it's a strategy to wean us off Arabian oil and Russian gas. And thus diminish the venal and corrupt regimes it bankrolls. I'm fine with that. If it gets us active and giving a shit about future generations then that's a Good Thing.

    Turkey

    Can vouch for Istanbul. One night we went to a restaurant for some kebaps. They served the meat on a 4 foot broadsword A fucking sword.

    As Mark Kermode put it "Brad Pitt sulks in space".

    American Made. Every now and again Tom Cruise stops phoning in his performances and does something pretty decent. Not quite up there with Magnolia and Tropic Thunder but it's one of his better recent films. Would have been better with McConnaghay, but it's still a decent enough romp. 7.62/10

    Ad Astra. 6/10 Ponderous, improbable and devoid of any likeable characters. Borrows heavily from other space films that did it before and did it better. Watch Danny Boyle's 'Sunshine' instead.
