    Can we have some GG film of the year lists. I've picked up some good recommendations when people have done them before.

    The Lighthouse was worth a look.

    I watched Ma Rainey's Black Bottom last night. I thought that it was really good. You can tell that it was adapted from a play.

    I thought the performances were great. Very powerful and the two leads deserve all the praise they get but as a film I thought it was a little overhyped. Similar in a way to Fences which was also adapted from a play. Felt like I was watching a play instead of a film, again, also similar to Fences.

    On the whole it’s not been a great year for films for obvious reasons but the standouts for me are;

    1917
    Parasite
    The Invisible Man
    Soul

    I agree that it felt like watching a play. I don't have a problem with that this year.

    Anyone seen Hunt for the Wilderpeople by Taika Waititi? Watched it on Prime recently having read nothing about it other than the knowledge of who directed it. Brilliant film.

    No doubt he’s a brilliant director and writer but his films are very cold. I never care about any of the characters in his films. Think he needs to try something different too. His films rarely have any humour. His early films are outstanding, The Prestige is a very underrated film.

    I saw it on release and again recently. Just a perfect film.

    I'm going to rewatch Jojo Rabbit tomorrow night.

    It is. I’ve tried to watch all of his earlier films. What we do in the shadows was also good but wilderpeople is the standout for me.

    I agree. I like What We Do In The Shadows but it's not a patch on Wilderpeople.

    Hunt For The Wilderpeople is a great movie.


    Housebound is worth a watch if you want to keep the Kiwi theme going, similar style of dark comedy i guess but with a dash of horror.

    Lost track of the movies i have seen this year but off the top of my head i enjoyed Palm Springs with Andy Samberg the most, in a low key way
