Shang-Chi started off alright. The bus fight was cool but the guy with the blade up his arm was lazily designed, a bit crap and turns out to be in it a fair bit. The fight on the skyscraper was alright but whoever is directing is doing a poor job of filming the action. Too many cuts (not Taken 3 daft, mind) and silly angles means I can’t see the choreography clearly. All that time and effort and you hide most of the punches… just seems daft to me. Then it slows right now for a thingymebob, some talking and some CG, and then a secret base where the Asian equivalent of Wakanda lies, some boring teaching stuff and a few ambiguous motivational poster comments “stop hiding, it only prolongs the pain” she says … and then an hour in and it’s time to talk about a *yawn* Dark Gate. There’s an hour left so there’s time for a big CG fight at the end I’d imagine when the Dark Gate is opened. Frankly, I couldn’t give a fuck. Oh look there’s some flashbacks with a kid punching some wood and having a martial arts lesson. It’s a good job someone doesn’t do a flashback to my youth when I was hammering my wood.

I'd go with: set up better than the pay-off. This thread, dissecting the bus scene from the POV of a driver, is magnificent. I hope it fixes the entire film for you:

We are half way through Watching Dave Built A Maze. It’s a shame, because it could have been a great concept, but it’s not very well written and the acting is atrocious.

Turns out, if you just watch up until the skyscraper you’ve seen all the best bits. The final fight with the big monster was … confusing. He chucks a ring in this dudes mouth and then descends from the sky and looks like he’s going to dropkick it in the heart but then he wobbles his hips and the thing explodes.

The ten rings are a kind of a crap power up as well.

Taylor Swift's short (15mins) film about (Nobody- legal ed) is both well shot and soundtracked. Find it here https://youtu.be/tollGa3S0o8

I’ve had Ammonite on my ‘to watch’ list since I first heard of it. It landed on Prime a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been saving it for the right night to watch.

So, it’s a great film. It really is great, but it’s really not a film about Mary Anning at all. It’s porn. It’s a sapphic fantasy with some fossils in the background. It’s the most solid 1 on a Craster film as I have ever seen.

I don’t know how it is just a 15.

Do you want to see Kate Winslet nose-deep in the muff of one of the Little Women? Or do you want to see a stunning woman with her face buried in Kate Winslet’s beautiful body? Think watching a woman sitting on Kate Winslet’s face might enhance your evening? Then boy is this film for you. Do you want to see any kind of film about the life of the amazing Mary Anning or her achievements? Well tough, here are some really lovely nipples.

It’s a great film. Any 15 year olds; don’t watch this with your mum and dad after Sunday dinner thinking it’s about Ichthyosaurs.

It also had the grandmother from Teacup Tales in it, but not in any of the sex scenes.

This was partially filmed in Lyme Regis, where both Mary Anning and I lived! I saw a bit of the filming when i visited my parents a few times, but sadly no muff or nipples were visible.

Also, my younger sister once played the Young Mary Anning in a Discovery documentary. Luckily that one *was* about Icthyosaurs.

No Time to Die: started off brilliantly, then tapered into just get on with it, and ended in a meh.

3 movies this weekend:

No Time To Die: An acceptable entry into the franchise, I felt. More memorable - just - than Spectre, but far from the quality of Casino Royale and Skyfall. Also, far too long. Some lovely callbacks to OHMSS, and a surprising amount of gammonbait, but decent. The
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
main villain's motivation for his evil plan is not explained well enough at all though, and he felt criminally underused in general.


The Electrical Life of Louis Wain: Another solid biopic from Benadryl Cabbagepatch, about Louis Wain, a troubled artist from the late 18th/early 19th centuries who became famous for his eccentric paintings of cats. A bit of a tearjerker, and ultimately doesn't really "satisfy" but that's not really the movie's fault.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife: My first time in a cinema for probably 2 years, I think. I was really quite pleasantly surprised with this one. I went into this expecting it to be absolutely awful, but it's actually pretty good. Nothing is ever going to beat the pure lightning-in-a-bottle that was the original movie, no matter how hard they try, but this has enough about it that's refreshing. It'd work OK as a non-Ghostbusters movie too (generally I mean) but as a Ghostbusters movie it acts as a good update to the story. Fantastic performance from the main character (played by McKenna Grace) and her pal, the cringingly-named Podcast (Logan Kim) and the rest of the cast are decent, even if they don't have a huge amount to do. If I had to nitpick, there are some references to the original that feel like they're just there for merchandising purposes, but it wasn't as "reference-packed" as I expected it to be.

I dunno, just watched it, really not impressed, thought it was a bit of a mess.

I love Kong and Godzilla, but I thought it was a bit boring, and if you are making a film about a giant Gorilla and Dinosaur fighting how on earth do you make it boring?

My daughter and eldest son were not that impressed either. (my wife fell asleep)

I really enjoyed Army of Thieves. It's stupid and derivative but it has fully leaned into that, and the main few characters are *nice*.

Well, the internet kept that quiet! I was genuinely surprised by the ending. Brave of them to go all in.

Overall I thought it was excellent. Certainly better than the confused and grim mess that was Spectre.

After being really impressed by Paloma, I was then equally disappointed by how quickly she exited the film. I suppose they're hoping for a spin off, but with CraigBond being dead, the continuity would be weird

We watched a little film called Click & Collect last night. It was silly, and fun. It’s only 50 minutes long, and a very easy watch.

I tried to watch Red Notice with Ryan Reynolds, The Rock and Gal Gadot but even the latter couldn’t make me spend time being utterly bored by the whole thing. Reynolds even seems to phone it in more than usual which is pretty impressive given his output these days. Terrible.

Then I watched Apple TV EXCLUSIVE(c)(TM), Finch, with Tom Hanks and erm… Tom Hanks. It starts out really fucking miserable and really impressive as a sort version of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Now that was already turned into a decent enough film (the book is better though. Natch.) so here we get Hanks crossing the country to find shelter from impending doom when he creates a robot to look after his dog when he’s dies of radiation poisoning from an unseen apocalyptic event. I found it really compelling up until the time when I didn’t. The robot eventually started to get on my nerves a little (I mean, it was ok but too fucking Chappie for my liking) and the lack of satisfying drama just kinda robbed it of purpose. For example, they escape a building from baddies we never see and hide from baddies in a car that don’t do anything. They hide from a storm. They hide from something else. It just needed some nastiness a la The Road that we never get. It might make you cry at the end, I certainly felt some sad emotions, but in retrospect it lacked something, anything, to make it memorable.

Spiderman - No Way Home.

What a great Spiderman film, I think it is the best so far. Tom is awesome as the role and it made my cry in places.

a lot of villains back from the other films... It handles the impact of the world now knowing who Peter Parker / Spiderman is, and the problems because of it.

I am really not sure what I can say as I don't want to spoil it. (I might start a new thread to talk about it)

9.5/10

I keep on thinking I'll finally watch 'Love Actually' for the first time since 2004 or thereabouts, but every time I sit down and start cueing it up I wimp out and look for something else instead. Will I break before
Christmas?

Yes and no. It focuses round different groups of people. Some get a happy ending some don’t.

Basically a good British rom com.

It's no Notting Hill, but I'll endorse it.

Surprising but delightful One on the craster scale, too

I’m not a fan of romcoms, I much prefer dramas. I’ll probably watch it at some point but maybe on a better year.

I’ve not seen Notting Hill either. I think I get the two of them mixed up. Does one have Hugh Grant in?

We watched Luca yesterday. The Pixar/Disney film about a young sea monster and his friend exploring the human world. It’s a nice little film, not too much peril, all produced by a team working from home last year.

Easy little 1hr45min watch with kids on Disney+

Went to see Spider-Man: No Way Home this afternoon.

Great movie, somewhat marred (through no fault of its own) by a sudden need for me to urinate at which I thought was a point close to the end, which meant I tried to hang on so as not to miss anything, only to realise that I was only about halfway through. I held on as best I could, but eventually I had no choice but to duck out of the auditorium, rush to the bogs and release the pressure on my bladder.

No idea what I missed, obviously, but I walked back into the theatre and stood awkwardly at the back for about 5 minutes before the end credits rolled.

I heartily recommend Last Train to Christmas. Cary Elwes and Michael Sheen in a variety of wigs, a strange "Christmas Butterfly Effect" plot and my lovely lady wife in her first movie appearance! ( uncredited, but Robin Askwith is mean to her )

I don't think Laura Linney's ending is too happy. Also the whole Colin Firth subplot is clearly going to end in disaster as they can't even speak to each other.

I've been to the cinema!

We saw Enchanto from Disney. It looks amazing. The animation is silky smooth and the colours, man... The colours!

The story was a bit strange though. I thought I saw the ending coming but then it didn't. But it ended anyway. Strange.

I was tempted by this, then saw that it's coming to Disney+ on friday. I guess Disney don't give a shit about cinemas any more

And of course, why should they? I was sat next to a bunch of kids who kept asking questions and wouldn't sit still.

Granted, two of them were mine but it's not the point!

I quite fancy this. I really like both Carey Elwes and Michael Sheen, but obviously I mostly would be tuning in to see how Mrs Squirt is going to win her first Oscar.

I hope it’s on another service at some point as we don’t have Sky, but would like to watch it at some point.

We watched this (we did find a free 7 day trial). It was a really good concept. I think the direction was a bit woolly at times, and the acting was surprisingly baggy from two great actors. What I DID notice, however, was that all of the non-speaking actors were *particularly* great.

One thing really, really bothered me though…

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
At the end of the film Michael Sheen essentially gives away 40 years of his life, because he doesn’t walk back through the carriages after ‘fixing’ them post-war. Obviously he now has the great relationship with his cousin, but as we know he doesn’t acquire memories of future changes, he’s essentially a stranger to him for the last forty years.

I watched Last Night in Soho last night. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t particularly enamoured by it. It was alright, the story was alright, the direction was alright, the cinematography was alright, the acting was alright. I suppose it was just alright. I like Edgar Wright a lot but I don’t think I’ll remember this by next week.

Who doesn't? The only person I can think of that doesn't' come out with a shiny life to look forward to is Karen.


That is the one I was thinking of. Well Karen and her husband.

Christ, 30 minutes of The New Matrix and I’m not feeling it at all. It’s not clever, so far, it’s just smacking you around the face with its dick with its themes.

I’m sorry but if your film doesn’t look as good as your older 20-odd year old film then why are you making it?
