A life on our planet, on Netflix. Sir David Attenborough superb as usual.

Coming late to the party: Tenet, 2/10. It was like someone had edited together all the cutscenes from a video game into an eight-hour-long marathon [*]. Ugh.

 

 

[*] It started at 6:00pm. After it had been running for about two hours I looked at my watch and it was 6:35pm.

"Brittany Runs A Marathon"

 

Light, but a nice story for a Friday evening. 6/10.

A Star Is Born Netflix 5/10

 

OK ish and Bradley Cooper isn't bad playing the rock star addict but overall it was unconvincing. It also had barely believable career changes from Lady Gaga - starts off doing country rock, converts to pop and then finishes with Las Vegas crooning all in a very short period of time apparently.

 

And her manager, presumably modeled on Simon Cowell, was a joke.

Enola Holmes on Netflix. 8/10. I really like Millie Bobby Brown and she did an excellent job in this movie. The story isn't the greatest although it's entertaining enough, the real reason for watching this movie is for Millie Bobby Brown.

 

 

Watched this last night. I thought it was thoroughly forgettable. Neither bad or good.

 

And poor Henry Cavill. A few years ago he was Superman.

I'm Think of Ending Things on Netflix. 7/10 because it kept me engaged throughout. I suspect most peoples final thought after watching it will be "wait... what?".

Fury - Netflix - 2/10

 

WWII + kid sent to the front + hardened old timer + impossible odds = nothing you haven't seen a million times before.

 

----

 

Yardie - BBC - 8/10

 

Great movie, great music, great costumes. But if you aren't used to a Jamaican accent you will struggle. I grew up in a part of Leicester in England which was all Jamaican, so I'm part Rasta !

 

----

 

The Legend of Baron To'a - Google Play Movies - 7/10

 

Tongan Rocky. Sadly most of the funny bits are in the various trailers but we still enjoyed it.

 

----

 

The Theory of Everything - Netflix - 7/10

 

Reasonable movie about Stephen Hawking.

 

----

 

Jimi - All is by my side - BBC - 9/10

 

Unsanctioned by the Hendrix family so there is none of the music you might expect and it pretty much only covers 12 months of his life but we both really liked it and neither of us wanted it to stop. Both Andre 3000 and Imogen Poots were excellent.

His career isn't suffering. Season 2 of The Witcher is in production now, and he is doing Justice League reshoots as Superman too.

Except it was the first time I've seen really realistic tank battles on screen. I thought those scenes were thoroughly unique, story aside.

If you mean reshoots for the upcoming Zack Snyder cut I don't believe Henry Cavill is doing any reshoots?

Heard the other day Snyder got budget to film new footage, a huge amount too, so stands to reason that includes Superman footage.

LA Confidential 8.5/10 DVD

 

Still a great watch with Guy Pearce, Russel Crowe, Kevin Spacey etc on top form.

 

Interesting story line, strong characters, and great atmosphere. What more can you want?

Speaking of iron and war films, Cross of Iron is a great watch.
