Captain marvel is a fun watch it's a bit muddled at the start and not on the same level as some of the recent marvel films but well worth a watch.

The de ageing of Sam Jackson is very good.

Finally caught up with Mother last night. Think I'm done with him and his bible shit now.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Just sat down to watch this, let's be honest, it's just killing time for the main event in the next month or 2.

Possibly but it's always nice to have new characters branching out from the central story.

Inheritance. Starts off well as a look at how grief affects a family, with a nice mood of foreboding going on. Sadly it tails off in the last third into some sub-Excorcist bollocks and tests audience capacity for patience in the face of silliness. 6.5/10

It was very enjoyable though agree it's not Marvel's best effort.

Thought the age reduction stuff was generally pretty good but Coulson was hit and miss, a couple of scenes looked very fake while others very good.

Liked the nod to Stan before it started.

Watched First Man on Friday, thought it was good.

Ryan Gosling stretches his repertoire by being a quiet and moody Neil Armstrong. The film focuses on the progress from the early 60s through the Gemeni and Apollo missions in the build up to 69. There’s lots of focus on Armstrong family relationship and the tragedy in his family life, and also the human cost of the space programme. Left me a bit in awe of people who can take those kind of risks to progress science. They must have needed a fair amount of additional rocket fuel just to lift their bollocks of the ground.

Solid 7.5/10

That's the climbing one, right?

Got a long flight today, not sure extra tension is what I need to be going for, though :lol:

Seen two this week.
1. Stan and Ollie.
Biopics all the rage atm, this is quite a good one.
Very faithful to the story and characters as far as I can see. About their promotional trip to Britain in their twilight years. Bittersweet and laid on with a trowel at times.
But very watchable with two gerat lead performances. Coogan is a revelation as Stan.
7/10 good entertainment.

2. Finding Steve McQueen.
Ace, just ace.
Heist film set in the Nixon era. Heist films are nearly always good and this doesn't disappoint.
Pretty conventional in many respects in the way it plays with the time lines and the obligatory luuurve interest.
But there are a couple of neat twists, especially who is getting robbed and why.
Music is great.
All the actors fine.
Direction has a Tarantino feel to it, as does the writing.
Just a very good watch, everything done right.
7.5/10. Moneysworth.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Really enjoyed it, best thing either of them have done in ages.

A Private War.

How she didn't win the Oscar for that I do not know. Phenomenal performance in a phenomenal film.

Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention the gratuitously unnecessary nude scene, which was very remiss of me. I only watched that bit twice as I was on the plane.

As you have obviously noticed, this should of course read "Hereditary." I'd like to just thank you all for not mentioning it. I appreciate your tact and diplomacy at this difficult time. :oops:

I've struggled a bit with some of the later Marvel films . I've enjoyed them a lot in the past - Capt America , Avengers , Thor , Dr Strange .....but more recent IMO have a bit too much silly humour in that take away from the films , even the last Avengers seemed a bit contrived at times . I am sort of currently watching Antman ( say sort of as I think I've lost a bit of interest at half way ) , struggled A LOT with Black Panther and gave up . Its a shame as I have enjoyed a lot of them in the past . Haven't seen Capt Marvel yet .

Today I was reading a football forum when I came across a rant from a (presumably) grown man who was bemoaning the fact that a marvel or DC or something film was (working on a premise of genetic mutated superheroes or something) "contrived".
I didn't know whether to call a point of order or to get fucking shitfaced. I have chosen the latter and any incidents that occur as a result of my decision are solely the responsibility of Clacton White :drunk:
The only thing we knew for sure about Henry Porter was that his name wasn't Henry Porter.
