    A movie watchers blog

    First Reformed (2018) So Mark gave it film of the week and a solo trip on a Saturday lunchtime was too tempting. Not really sure this was intended to be watched at this time.... Anyway I'm glad I saw it in the cinema. The setting is very formal and austere, the film pulls you into it's world brilliantly, I love the really artificial shots he cuts to between characters during conversation. They look like old paintings and the old school 4:3 ratio emphasises to this and adds to the film, not just a gimmick. Ethan hawk comfortably carries the film, the female lead is distractingly beautiful but that might be the point. Thematically it's very topical but it flits around too much for me. I really enjoyed the pace and atmosphere of this film, and how under written it was but...I really didn't like the ending and I'm not sure I care about the film or the characters. Glad I saw it though, will read some more reviews now critics seemed to love it.
  2. I've been posting since I was about 15! On here when I was 17, so yeah I can imagine I would be sacked. We didn't know back then all this stuff was effectively world wide public. The jokes aren't very bad either and clearly jokes. Absolute bollocks this.

    What things are missing? I'll have to give it a watch

    Why was she so sure he did it? She'd only meet Peterson once before so the "accident" so the relationship with her sister can't have been close anymore. I do feel we are missing something, or maybe she's just a raving homphobe.
  5. I wrote this at six in the morning, I'm sorry it's gibberish.
  6. Anyone read the Peggy interview I'm the guardian? It was really good, he addressed so big things. Seems world's end is fairly auto biographical. Might have actually watch this in s cinema, I normally watch these on planes and they are perfect for that.
  7. Loved wind River, didn't go the way I expected and brilliantly written.

    Doctor Who

    For me it's where the best British sci fi writers flex their muscles, or at least that's what it should be. Girl in the fireplace is another stand alone classic for me.

    The Staircase (contains verdict spoilers)

    I was certain he did it, by the end certain he didn't. Either way there's plenty of reasonable doubt and the owl theory is pretty good. Also no one talks about all the valium and alcohol she'd had. I think it was a bottle of wine and at least 10mg, and I can barely walk after a couple glasses when I've had that much valium. And if he did do it, how did he manage not to damage her skull? Where are the defence marks? I love Peterson's realisation early on that poor people just go to jail. The whole thing is pretty damming of the justice system.
  10. Well I like the OPA now. Great episode that

    Ghostbusters (2016)

    This is on Netflix now. Watched it as my gf suggested it, she's a huge bridesmaids fan and said it was good. It's a real mess isn't it? It looks amazing in HD, new York looks beautiful in it. But Hemsworth was awful, and most of the jokes fell flat ( my cat, really?). It felt like they were running through to cover the plot. And the plot is something off some half arsed Saturday morning cartoon. Hardly any character development either, apart from when Wigg talks about her childhood but that whole thing is never mentioned again. Looks like editing it was a nightmare. The references to the old film are cringy and do the exact opposite of what was intended.
  12. Really enjoyed The Staircase. Loved reading subsequently online about the Theory lol. I'm a big fan of that idea.

    Ant-Man and The Wasp - July 2018

    Oh shit good point, the mass is the same as it's the sub atomic gaps that change size. Doh. That means he'll be much, much stronger then. Don't worry guys everything's fine.
