Violent Night. For the first half hour, I thought this could have remained a pitch; I could have read it briefly, had the chuckle the film had given me by then, and moved on. But it kicked in, some of the deaths are spectacular and it justified its existence. I'm with Kermode who said it was exactly what you expect, but it made him laugh. Yup. And there's a magic team in there - 8-10 members, 3 of them peel off, then 8 of them enter a shed and many many more do stuff inside the shed. Disposable. Funny. Worth it.

Avatar: Way of Water is a retread (almost beat for beat) of the original film. But who gives a shit when it looks so purdy in 3D IMAX!? Fuck me it was great. I even gave a shit when they speared a CG whale thing and it don’t even exist.

And then I watched Barbarian.

It’s a fun little horror movie on Disney+. Starts creepy and gets sorta less creepy and a bit wacky right at the end, but it’s never not a good time. Very enjoyable.

Watched the new Guillermo Del Toro Pinocchio. It’s a little long but I REALLY liked it. It has so many levels. It’s dark without being DARK. I did a big cry near the end. It touches so much on death, love, war, and so many other themes without making it something that younger chikdren can’t watch and get something out of. It’s sort of ugly beautiful. Russell did a big cry too.

The del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities is a bit rubbish. He's no Alfred Hitchcock.

Glass Onion was garbage, and not even the enjoyable kind. Not helped by keep doing shots-with-orchestral-music that harked back to 70s Bond - way to kill what immersion you'd managed numbnuts. Disappoint, the first was great.

The second half is better, even if it did make me wince in a few bits.

Coma is pretty great. We've watched quite a lot of non-english things recently, not even all Korean, as is this case, and been pleasantly surprised.

Chaos Walking or whatever it is the Tom Holland/Daisy Ridley one is called is an alright way to pass a couple of hours too.

Just watched it too, excellent. Although...

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
I noticed Janelle Monae's hair was different, so suspected she was playing two characters.
Knew Ed Norton was the killer as soon as Dave Batista died.
Knew Janelle Monae wasn't dead when she was shot.


Which somehow makes it lesser, and I'm not sure it should.

ftfm.

I thoroughly enjoyed White Noise, however.

Went to see The Banshees of Inisherin last night. A very enjoyable dark comedy about the break-up of a years-long bromance on a sleepy island that's so remote even the on-going civil war (it's set in the 1920s) passes it by.

It was great to see Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell together again and they both have the best lines, but even the stock characters (the village idiot; the sole policeman; the widow) had depth and humour.

The landscape shots, especially the overhead ones, looked stunning on the big screen.


I very much want to see this


Finally caught up with this. It was oddly funny and I think it will stay with me quite a while.

It covers depression quite well.

WHAT HAS GRIM... WATCHED THIS YEAR?
The Menu - super-pretention restaurant that you can't leave before the "experience" ends. Excellent.
Easy A - High school girl lies about being slutty (thirteen years ago), gets (sort-of) popular, hijinks ensue. Also excellent.
Boss Level - Tripped over this on Amazon Prime and as I like time loop films I thought I'd give it a go despite it's utterly stupid name and it's really fucking good! It's not going to tax your brain, but it's funny and action-packed and people die over and over again. Hurrah!
The World's Fastest Indian - I'm back up to date with this one as it's only 18 years old, but it's about an old man who builds his own high-speed bike out of back-yard parts and tries to break the world speed record. It's great.
Titanic - It's about a hot girl on a big boat. It's old now, it's really long, and it's still one of the best films ever made.
