Had a pretty monumental week away skiing in Val d’Isere. The snow really came in for us on the Tuesday, definitely the best powder I’ve ever been in. Drank my body weight in wine, ate the same in cheese. A trip everyone should try and do 🎿
All round a not-so-bad film. Chuckled at the quick horizon shift at the end. A nice telling of the story of the man so often behind the camera
Spent the night slogging away designing a theme for my micro.blog and think I’m getting somewhere near happy with it. Accompanied by some great music from Sharon Van Etten. It’s been a good old evening 😌
Here’s Mabel the cat having a yawn 🐱
First film of 2023!
This film is a precise mashup of Gran Torino and Up. Even had the trip to the falls. Turns out that’s no bad thing, I cried my eyes out and I’ll be buying the book. Thoroughly recommend giving it a watch.
Made my grand return to micro.blog today. Pleased to be back and I’m going to sink some effort into getting things set up how I like them over the next few days!
Not as good as the first but enjoyable!
Spent 100 minutes waiting for something explosive when in fact the entire film just slowly burned. Left thinking for hours. Loved it
What a performance from Anthony Hopkins, genuinely terrifying. Probably a bit criminal that it took me this long to see this film
What a rollercoaster. Some great soundtracking and the shots are superb. A wild, wandering journey around the mind of an unwell guy
So good. Bleak and funny. Great acting. The “takes two to tango” back and forth had me laughing my head off
Not great, not bad. Cast is insane but the story is maybe a bit too convoluted for me. I do like when movies do a side-by-side with the real events in the credits though
I think this is a great concept that’s been badly delivered
Colin Farrell really hates Bruges
Quentin goes easy on the violence but keeps the feet in this one. Great double cross thing going on
It’s a whodunnit. You see one, you’ve seen ‘em all. This one’s particularly good though
Saw this in IMAX for a special. It’s just iconic. Animatronics are better than CGI. That classic soundtrack. About ten shots of those oxygen tanks so we don’t forget they’re on the boat.. I love every moment of this film.
I don’t think Sean Bean says “bastard” in this film, which would’ve definitely bought it another star. All round an enjoyable film, even if you could see what was coming next for near enough the whole thing.
Spent the whole film thinking it looked familiar. Then “GREAT ASS” and it came flooding back. What a film!
I watched this movie in its native languages, with French subtitles. Difficult to understand that, but the film could still be understood. A great story that’s heart wrenching at times. Worth a watch for sure
This movie had great pace. Perhaps just highlighted because I’d watched Moulin Rouge the night before.
Hell of a cast, all at their best. Loved the escalation throughout.
Take your eyes off this for 30 seconds and you’ll miss about 25 important plot points. It really shifts!
I want to take his face 🤏 … off
