    Bet its crap. 2 and 3 were horrendous. Terminator and Alien just kept getting worse and worse after their first 2 too.

    My 2021 list would be:

    Censor
    Green Knight
    Summer Of Soul
    No Time To Die
    Last Night In Soho
    French Dispatch
    The Dig
    Without Remorse
    Dune
    Sparks Brothers
    Giddy Stratospheres
    Gucci

    I'd probably only really recommend the top 7, the others were more just decent

    In The Earth was the one I missed that I want to catch-up on

    Btw I'm pretty sure Saint Maud was released July 2020; not 2021

    The Simon Armitage edition of the original text is a good read:

    Watched Wrath of Man last night.Was a bit rubbish. It’s on Prime.

    Think Guy Ritchie was involved or wrote it.

    Thought it was watchable. I'd call it an above average Jason Statham movie.

    Normally I don’t mind a bit of Statham trash. I thought it would be decent as I enjoy Guy Ritchie films . Just found it very flat .

    If you want a trashy Statham-esque action flick on Prime then look no further than Boss Level

    This doesn't mean what you think it means, unless you think it means what I don't think it means.

    Va fanculo. Fangoo la te mama. Stugatz.

    How'zat workin' for ya, sweetcheeks?

    I don't even pretend to speak Italian. Though I do love to hear it spoken. And as the token mangiacake at an Italian-language community newspaper, I got to hear plenty of it in my early years freelancing as a fotografo.

    I did grow up in a heavily Italian neighbourhood in a city with more than 500,000 residents of Italian extraction. Toronto. And the expressions above are the words - among many others- I routinely heard from the kids of these working class immigrants, often while sitting in the high school cafeteria gambling away our lunch money playing briscola and scopa, talking about how to sneak out a few pints of their dads' home-made grappa to help us get in the pants of the abundantly endowed Marchiori sisters.

    If I'm not spelling things perfectly, hey, bocce me culo, brutta bestia.

    Enjoyed No Way Home, would give it 4 out of 5. It had nostalgia, emotions, fun, worth watching and I’m sure you probably will.

    Saw Spider-Man: No Way Home on Wednesday. Absolutely loved it! Pulled off quite a risky concept. Comfortably my favourite film of the year and my favourite non-Avengers Marvel film. Don’t wanna oversell it to anyone but that’s my honest opinion of it.

    My other favourite films of the year:

    No Time To Die
    Nobody
    Shang Chi
    Luca
    Palm Springs
    Last Night in Soho
    Another Round (technically released in 2020 but only saw it last night)

    Enjoyed the ones in bold.

    Wasn’t keen on Dune.

    Didn’t know what to make of Censor. Interesting idea but thought of went off the rails a bit towards the end.

    French Dispatch….no offence but that was one of my least favourite films of the year :D

    Palm springs was quality
    Very under rated and understated too

    14 Peaks on Netflix is an excellent documentary film. He's lived one of those lives, where you barely believe it's true.

    Watched the humming bird project tonight. The wife's choice. I am not a big movie person but I enjoyed it.
