    The worst thing about Suicide Squad was the assumed need to make them all sympathetic characters. As if the audience doesn't have the intellectual capacity to like bad people.

    The worst thing about Justice League was everything. I once saw a cat brick its own guts out trying to give birth. I'd rather watch that again than Justice League.

    Anyone watched the remake of Papillon? Any good? Don't normally touch remakes of great films, but Rami Malek may be the best actor around at the moment.

    I watched it and it just felt like a total waste of time - half the film that the original was

    Watched Kid Detective last night
    Really good film, done well

    also watched 3 idiots today. Not sure it merits the hype but it’s a nice film and one worth seeing if you like Indian films

    So much going on in that end scene and wonderfully performed by Hoskins.

    Being a busy businessman and a cottage owner, I don't often get out to see the latest movies. So this pandemic has at least offered opportunities to get caught up on good stuff Lady Norf and I have missed in recent times.

    We watched 1917 last week. Really well done. That amazing opening take of the two soldiers was gripping.

    Watched The Green Book today. Fantastic.

    Saw the film Bobby last night, great reminder of what a fantastic player he was, shame his transfer to us didnt go through.

    Not sure if I sat through it, but from what little I remember it was awful.

    I saw the whole thing, and I don't think I'll ever forget it. Can't believe it was funded by the BFI and National Lottery.

    Watched Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood and largely enjoyed it. Until the utterly ridiculous final scenes full of gratuitous violence.

    There you have Brad Pitt's likeable, well-drawn character, a man full of restraint and self-control throughout the film, calmly sorting out the gunman, decking one knife-wielding woman but suddenly going apeschit and violently pummeling the other knife-wielding woman. And don't say he was high on LSD. Smoking that stuff doesn't have the slightest effect. I know.

    Or you have the slightly inept, insecure Leo DiCaprio character expertly using a flame thrower. Huh?! If only they'd played that scene for laughs, it would have worked.

    The whole finale was set up to have some proper fun with and still provide the same outcome and Tarantino spits on the audience with this bloody, over-the-top nonsense (yeah, I know, he's got previous). Otherwise, such a nice tribute to Hollywood of a past era, a well crafted yarn that is a visual treat, just for the clothes, classic TV and movie references, sets and cars of the era.

    Watched Bridge of Spies yesterday. I assume Hanks funded the whole thing?

    Did the same in Inglorious Basterds and all his other movies since he jumped the shark. No-one would make these films if he wasn’t who he was. He’s like Peter Pan, never grew up and his version of cool has aged as anyone’s does.
