Apparently so.

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Mae (Emma Watson's character) has almost no agency throughout the entire movie, and when she does make her own decisions there's absolutely no clear reason as to where those decisions have come from, or why. The decisions often involve a complete about-face in character from what we've seen so far.

John Boyega plays a character who - we're expected to believe - invented the social network that the film is basically about, but has become disillusioned with the way the company and the product have grown and changed, so now lives off grid. Except he's *always* lurking around the campus but no-one seems to react to his presence at all. He has about three scenes, the last of which is supposedly to "inspire" Mae into blowing the whole thing wide open.

Which she does, with the film attempting to make it abundantly clear (to the audience) that the two head honchos of the company (Tom Hanks and Patton Oswalt) have been doing some seriously shady shit behind the scenes. But we don't find out what, or why, or how. There are no consequences to anything they've done, or indeed anything that Mae does throughout the entire film.

Oh, apart from a sequence where Mae uses one of their new products, live on-stage (and against her will, really) to find an old friend of hers, who is then hounded by users of The Circle until he crashes off a bridge and dies. Nothing really comes of this, though - despite this being broadcast presumably to the entire world at the time.

Saw Butt Boy as part of an indie film festival ongoing in Glasgow at the moment and, as you'd expect from the title, it's, um, quite the thing. The success of it's largely down to how deftly it walk the line between being genuinely laugh out loud funny at unexpected points, while also playing its entire 'grizzled noir-detective investigates potentially horrendous anal crimes' schtick completely seriously throughout. Oh, and the music's fucking fantastic synthy-pulsing-atmospheric-techno type stuff which helps to add a compelling claustrophobia to the proceedings. Definitely recommended.

Film wot I watched, Jo Jo Rabbit.

It’s nothing like Crank so therefore it’s shit.

1/10

Also it’s pretty brilliant. Ok, well, Scar Jo is brilliant. I swear she’s fast becoming one of my new fave actors.

The film itself looks good, the young actors are surprisingly watchable (for children) (tell a lie, they’re all superb actors in their own right), it’s pretty funny, but I’m not entirely sold on the story: Nazi child learns that being racist isn’t very good because we’re all the same but really because he fancies some girl. It’s not exactly deep, but it’s told in an interesting way and has some genuinely touching story beats. Also: Scar Jo.

I’m going to give it a generous 8/10

Utter shash. I genuinely think it might be the worst film I've ever seen. Primarily because it is the sort of film that, on paper, should have enormous promise but it squanders it all away with gay abandon.
So it’s a very faithful adaptation of the novel, then.

Yeah, the book was really shit

Obviously just my opinion, but I found the Ready Player One book is far superior to the movie.

It's not a classic book by any means, but it's fun and nerdy. What's not to like?

I watched Deathstalker 2 which is an absolutely terrible film on Amazon Prime.

It scores on the Craster scale though so highly recommended.

Also a terrible film on Amazon that scores on the Craster scale: Joysticks. A god-awful 80s comedy without any actual funny bits*. Basically a bloke wants to shut down his local arcade - that's the whole plot. I only really put it on for arcade game nostalgia reasons, but there's not much to be had; a bit of Satan's Hollow, Gorf and Pac-Man really.

* worst example being when two of the arcade staff sneak into the home of the bloke wanting to shut the arcade down and find his wife doped up on sleeping pills and barely conscious; one suggests to the other that it's an ideal opportunity to lose his virginity by basically raping her. ?:|

Film wot I watched: Doctor Sleep extended directors cut.

This was good. Really, really good. I loved the pacing, the direction was really great, a great score, visually interesting and a good attempt to recapture the Kubrick vibe. I liked all the actors who did a fantastic job (especially some of the minor characters) and thought that McGregor was crushing it. It’s a massive 3 hours long and I was deeply invested for well over 2 hours.

Then they went back to the lodge and it felt like completely unnecessary fan service. To be fair, I wasn’t feeling Danny’s mother stand-in from the beginning (She doesn’t have that intense weird look of the original actor) but I could see past that but when it started rolling out the lodge, fake Jack, the axe, maze in the snow, recreating the iconic camera following the axe swing, the “here’s Johnny” and so on, I lost interest. It’s probably a problem with the source material but even just getting to the lodge seemed contrived...

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
The kid had already demonstrated she was stronger than the big bad so why did they have to run to Columbia to get assistance from the lodge? If the plan was to have the ghosts come out their boxes and kill her; the ghosts had already demonstrated that they didn’t need to be at the lodge to exist, so why couldn’t he let them out somewhere else?


It really pissed me off because it was fucking excellent up until then - and I mean really fucking excellent - but this last 40 minutes was just not up to snuff. It was cheap and a bit rubbish. McGregor tried to do his best Jack impression but it just wasn’t doing it for me. It stained my overall impression of the film and I was just horribly disappointed that the story went where it did, like a cheap horror film.

I’d give it a 8/10 as is, but honestly had it changed that last 40 minutes it would have been 9, maybe even 10. The weird thing was, I reckon this film would have been better had it not been directly related to The Shining. My idea to end it though:-

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
All the villains die at the shoot out (maybe rearranged to be lengthier - also, I’d take the handguns off all of the baddies. Why did every single one of them have a gun!?) but they do get smashed to bits. I loved that bit by the way, they all rock up and just get fucking murdered! Great stuff.

The villain kidnaps the kid as per and Danny crashes the car and kills her. End.

I love abrupt endings in films.

Interesting - I had high hopes for a "Pearl Harbor without the love story or Ben Affleck" but I felt like it was all very one dimensional and repetitive. The action sequences in particular were just the same shot of "pilot's face whilst grimacing and struggling with the controls" over and over again.

Spenser. The new one with Mark Wahlberg.

It was ok. Bit cheesy, and there's something funny about new movies where they look a bit beyond real but overall a decent enough romp to get you to the end.

Post Malone is certainly better at acting than making music.

The Hunt - The Liberal Elite kidnap and hunt down people with differing viewpoints. "Terrible" was my first reaction,but after thinking about it a bit more it was "OK". It seems to have left a lot on the edit room floor.

15 minutes into Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker I’ve already rolled my eyes at the return of that guy (or gal) and how those 15 minutes were just flashy lights with fuck all going on.

And then it’s time for exposition as the story moves to “it’s the hidden planet of the siths”, there’s “a secret army/armada that’s been built” and “I’ve got this special book!”

I’m pretty sure this is going to be generic action movie nonsense with all the pretties and none of the special sauce that made the originals so great.

“I don’t deserve this light sabre. You hold it until I’m good enough”

Literally 5 minutes later with nothing happening in between.

“Have this light sabre back, you deserve it”

Well that was fucking pointless padding then.

I had to take a break because, well, it’s a bit boring.

Nothing is happening and yet they’ve still got enough time to dick around with some machine that looks like a hairdryer on a wheel. Piss poor dialogue is hurting the film too (nowhere near as bad as the prequels but just rubbish cliched rubbish knocked up without any thought).

They’re really doubling down on Reys parents after the backlash was that they’re nobodies. “My parents were on that ship“ she says when she’s on a random ship having a force induced stroke. How very interesting after an entire film where your parenthood was mentioned just once because no one but fanboys gave a fuck.

It's almost as if they kicked off the final trilogy without having even the remotest fucking clue as to how the story arcs would play out.

Appallingly sloppy performance from Disney.

Absolutely.

It’s a tonal mess too. The whole film so far feels like an endless series of side missions yet the characters, well, Rey, has this urgency about what they’re doing that’s not communicated to the audience. Rey is endlessly reckless because everything is super urgent but we’re not told what the urgency is. I “think” trying to find this hidden planet before the massive armada launches but there’s no timescale. They haven’t told the audience how they intend to deal with the massive armada since they’re like only five fucking people either.

Annabelle: Creation. Well acted, beautifully shot, a few good moments, rubbish script.

My son's reaction was. I haven't seen the earlier films and I really don't want to now!

Midsommar: pretty good, does a great job of building an unsettling mood. The male lead looks like a low-rent version of all the Hollywood Chris’s (Pine, Pratt, Hemsworth) blended together. Doesn’t contain anything as startling as Toni Collette’s performance in Hereditary but then again, what does? Three wicker men out of five.
