It comes crashing to a halt at least three times as we are visited by Basil Exposition, given information a more skilled screenwriter could have woven into the script naturally. It was nice seeing Snoop Dog though.

I watched Fisherman's Friends - The Return of the Friends and Beast at the weekend. The first was exactly what you'd expect, and I thought they worked in a bit of jeopardy just about well enough to justify it. The reviews do not agree, and fair enough, but it was cheering. We all needed it, particularly after a fellow audience member fell ill, collapsed and had to be taken out on a stretcher. Though by the time they took him out, he was apologising and receiving an audience's worth of "don't you worry my love", "get well!" in return.

And Beast is Idris Elba and Sharlto Copley taken on by a rogue lion. It's competent, and a good excuse to show views of the savannah.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (the Nick Cage biopic) is surprisingly safe but nonetheless a good time and plenty of fun. I enjoyed it a lot and it had a few good laughs.

I was just annoyed it wasn’t more ambitious as the “plot” was fucking dire.

Everything Everywhere All At Once, now included with Prime Video, is a fever dream of a film. I loved it.

I was quite disappointed with The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent - it turned into a generic "actor forced to be the person he is in movies" story that I'd seen many times before.

Lightyear was alright. It just wasn’t as much fun or had as much heart as the Toy Story films. Also, there’s a couple of sequences that weren’t fleshed out enough or had enough thought out into them for me. I dunno, it just lacked the sparkle of early Pixar films. Worth a watch mind, just don’t expect much.

Thor love and thunder is now on Disney+. It's no Ragnarok - I doubt anything else will ever match up - but it's great.

Turns out, the film I couldn't remember watching was Venom - let there be carnage

Clearly, quite forgettable. Plane viewing isn't the best environment, it was a dark (as in, dimly lit) film and for much of the time I was struggling to see what was going on.

Overall a bit of a shame as I really enjoyed the first one.

It rattles along at a pace, too. Not that the plot is taxing, but not being able to see it means you'll miss it and then, bang, it's over. It's not bad.
