"Resurfacing" on Amazon Prime. Documentary about Andy Murray's journey back to professional tennis following two hip operations. Loved it. You don't have to like the guy (although I think it's a bit weird that some people don't) but you have to respect him.

Finally watched it. Very good and fair play to him for allowing the major op to be filmed. Would have been nice if it had finished on his win against Wawrinka.

 

But what was the point in interviewing Lendl, Mauresmo, Nadal, Federer etc... they were on screen for barely 10 seconds. Odd. Would have loved to have heard more, especially from Lendl.

I watched Kingsman; a secret service last night, a total random selection off Netflix. I'd never heard of it but it had a big cast and I thoroughly enjoyed it despite the most preposterous of preposterousness going on. The boy who played Eggsy just won a Golden Globe for his Elton John. A very good young British actor. Taron Egerton has a big future.

Speaking of films.. you cunts should take 8 minutes out of your day to watch Ricky Gervais' opening monologue from his hosting of the Golden Globes. Savage and unforgiving as the truth often is. A brilliant man.

 

I just did. Thank you for the rec. Brilliant. Anyone in the audience offended by him is an arsehole. I doubt that many were but there would've been one or two. His irreverence is wonderful and he's been VERY funny in that role.

Interesting post count RS  :wave:

 

  Was visiting my brother over Xmas,and we stuck on a random film called 'the siege of Jadotville'. Based on a true story about an Irish contingent of UN peace keepers left to fend for themselves in the wilds of the Congo.

    Great film if its anything like what they went through

Any of you see The Irishman? I thought de Niro was outstanding but there was nothing Irish about him. Scorcese tried too hard to produce an epic and it failed in my opinion. Good entertainment and worth watching but not the classic they hoped it was. The Golden Globes gave it nothing.

 

 

I watched it and the longer it went on the less interested I became. Overall I liked it but the ending was anti-climatic to put it politely.

I thought the ending was deep, poignant and gave some meaning to an otherwise meaningless film.

 

Don't read this if you've not seen the film yet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I thought it tried to show that crime doesn't pay and after a life of operating on the outside of the law, he was left broken and lonely. The personalisation and characterisation of gangsters was best done in the Sopranos to the extent that they all lived and breathed like real people, albeit in an underworld that the vast majority of us know exists but thankfully we don't experience directly. Despite one of the world's best actors and a massive budget, I don't think Scorsese got close to getting the audience to empathise with, far less love any of his characters in this film including de Niro. The director is yesterday's man and his final (surely?) "epic" or magnum opus was a failure.

I hadn't realised that JoJo Rabbit took so long to get released over there. Superb film!

 

Not just there Manc. I watched in in Melbourne last sunday and it seems to be a new release in Oz.

 

To compensate for whatever reason the new Shaun the Sheep movie seems to be doing the rounds in Kiwiland 3months after it was in the UK Cinemas.

I didn't even remotely enjoy Jojo Rabbit  : I like Taika Waititi as well, I just never got into it all and actually thought it got worse as it went on.

 

Wtf  ;)

 

Well I didn't really rate 1917, the cinematography was excellent but just never got going!!

 

I saw A Hidden Life last night which I very much enjoyed tho a long 3 hours, the Austrian landscape was incredible.

Next up is Bombshell & David Copperfield  ;D

Catch me if you can. The 2002 version with Leo di Caprio and Hanks T.

 

Had never heard of it but the youngest was home for a night and we watched it. Thoroughly enjoyably excellent.

 

 

Still never seen it all the way through for reasons that I just don't remember despite thoroughly enjoying what I have seen of it. Will need to re-visit this one for sure.
