The Untouchables is great, although not because of Costner it has to be said.

Was Prince of Thieves the one with Alan Rickman? "Why a spoon?", "Because it's DULL, you twit. It'll hurt more!"

I rewatched The Untouchables not long ago. It hasn't aged well. The most striking thing was Costner's unmoving face and emotionless voice. De Niro was wasted in it.

Yep! A yawnsome film in spite of Rickman. TBF, if they'd edited it down to a lean 90 minutes, it would be excellent.

Sean Connery’s accent is hilariously bad - a clear .75 Van Dykes.

Yeah it started off well and built the intruigue fairly nicely. It kept threatening to get interesting but they apparently decided to take a bold choice to go in the opposite direction and it turned into tedious shit.


I think it would have worked a lot better without all the manufactured peril for the spaceship group, there was plenty enough for Clooney's journey and I really thought it weakened the overall narrative structure to have two sets of strife happening simultaneously. (And a pain in the arse to keep cutting between them.)

So have Clooney's story told largely as it was (and perhaps expand on it a bit, for example I wanted to see stuff of him getting into his final destination and seeing more of what that looked like), but just have the spaceship group coming back and simply build on the characters and their stories, and don't have all the DANGER IN SPACE nonsense - I think there enough tension inherent in their story and situation as it is.

Definitely it brought it all together for a very effective final half hour though.

Overall I liked it, 624/1000

Trolls World Tour (I was really bored, and had just watched the Brodie Lee tribute show, so needed laughs), bloody great fun.

I have watched this approx 100 times over Christmas after my daughter spotted it on the SkyQ home screen. I tried very hard to deter her but I was actually pleasantly surprised once I'd seen it. It's got a good soundtrack so I don't mind that it seems to be playing on repeat.

We are currently watching The Snowman. Well, Darwin is watching it. I am ignoring it because I know as soon as those guys start flying is going to make me cry.

I watched Tenet at the weekend. I'd say at a guess, I had no idea what was going on for around 75% of the movie, and for the other 25% my confidence in understanding the plot was fluctuating wildly. I quite enjoyed it though and will probably watch it again to see how it is on second viewing with a better understanding of what was going on.

Dragon Soldiers. Amusingly terrible. Mostly terrible.

Spree: cabbie livestreams murders for views as he wants to be as internet famous as Curio. Has that funny looking fella from stranger things in it who worked at the ice cream shop. Decent take on being insta famous, and worth a watch and at 90 mins or so, the proper length for a film. On netflix.

We've just watched 'Now you see me 2'.

It may as well have been in Japanese because I understood nothing that happened in it. Nothing at all. It was double cross after double cross after switch after switch. Rubbish.

Labyrinth - In your heart of hearts, you know it's a 2/10 at best. Just called my parents to say "sorry I nagged you so much you took me to the cinema to see this".

I'd give it more than that, but agree, it's a poor film.

I still love this film. When he opens the door out of the oubliette and it’s a broom closet I love it. The rocks aligning to Bowie’s face, the invisible seam in the wall near the worm, Luuuuuudooooooo, David Bowie fiddling with his balls. It’s great.
