Saw Fargo last night for the first time, the 1996 version with Steve Buscemi and Frances McDormand. What a heavy mindfuck in parts but thoroughly enjoyable.

Brilliant film and thoroughly dark. The series wasn’t bad either.

Watched American Folk tonight, well shot and a good story. Not a thought provoker but a nice watch nonetheless. Ask me food comical moments despite being part of a sad story.

Finally got round to watching isle of dogs. What a wonderfully bizarre film. Wasn’t for the mrs, but I enjoyed it.

I don’t watch films much.

Even then when I try it they usually only last about 5-10 minutes.


Watching Casablanca just now.

Pure genius

Hotel Artemis

Enjoyable and also short (only 94mins).

I'm a man, and as a man I crave disappointment.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland.

Black Panther - really good film and perfect  action film for a Friday night.  Although some of the accents (forrest whittaker in particular) were pretty suspect.

New Predator movie, fucking sucks and that's being generous. Genuinely a cross between a comedy & really poorly executed B movie. First time I've ever felt robbed leaving a Cinema ( in the film sense, not the cost of the Cinema )

I'd be very surprised if anyone else sees this and has a different opinion. Honestly, it's enormously horrific.

New Halloween movie, as a massive fan of the majority of the Halloween movies, I am perhaps being biased in giving it a 6-7 out of 10. They got a lot right, but also left a lot to be desired. More gory than we're used too, that's for certain, but not even remotely scary and some of the acting was poor. Worth a watch though for definite.

I saw Bohemian Rhapsody last night. Thought it was brilliant. Whilst I've only ever been a casual admirer of the Queen stuff over the years I absolutely recognise the brilliance of Freddie Mercury and the miss that he is having died some 27 years ago. Rami Malek who played Mercury was excellent.

 Yes,echo what Tyrant says about Bohemian Rhapsody.We go to the Vue for films because its usually half empty,but Ive never seen it so busy(with fellow silvering haired rockers mostly)
    Malek might not be the most visually similar to Freddie,but he plays the part very well.The other guys were very good too.Great film.
   Wasnt a huge Queen fan at the time,but I dont think many bands will repeat their level of song quality,or showmanship.

Me and youngest daughter just watched Bruno. Can't believe I hadn't got round to it before. Best literal laffin out loud film ever, or at least since I was 12 when I seen Monty Python in the cinema. Sacha B C is a total genius.

Aye, I think he's hilarious. I liked Bruno, but preferred Borat, if you've not seen that, it's worth a watch.

I was the same, thought Borat was the funnier of the two.

Watched Blackkklansman last night.  Brilliant film, although thoroughly depressing that fuck all has changed in the US (really), which I know is the point of the film. Still, definitely worth a watch.

The wrestling match at the end is proper "ooft" stuff, Bruno is very under rated imo.
