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.

Ooh that Anderson Paak song that plays over the credits is fucking smooth AF. Ok, it’s all worth watching just for that.

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.

Yep...It's effectively the whole Jadorowsky Dune movie story boarded.

It sold for $2.7m. Did you get it?

Godzilla vs. Kong was some good Saturday morning family fun. 7.5/10



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*.
