I really thought the acting in this was phenomenal. Reminded me of the Always Sunny pageant episode, which I’m guessing took a tiny bit of inspiration from this perhaps
This film had me gesturing violently at the screen a few times. Gripping and the unique way of telling the story was fun too.
Dumbledore said a swear word
A self-aware movie that’s hilarious from the start to end. The CGI blood budget must’ve been huge
Artistically this film is spot on. It looks great, sounds great, and the acting from Cate Blanchett is crazy good. Still, felt a bit long for me. Cheers for front-loading the credits though because I was a couple of minutes late arriving
I had a quick check at how much a breathalyser would cost at the end of this film. Not sure I took the right message
Get someone who looks at you like chef looks at those burgers cooking
Had the cinema to myself last week. This Odeon in Manchester has the AMC colours still, which I think makes it a bit unique. It’s also very tired but weirdly that adds a degree of charm to the place. Long live Great Northern Odeon 🍿
You don’t need to watch this film to know what’s going to happen. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. Plane was an enjoyable film to watch on the big screen, for sure
Shyamalan has the most hilarious cameo in this film. It’s a good thriller but I think the ‘twist’ (wasn’t much of one) was a bit loose for my liking.
White out conditions in Val d’Isere last week.. I’m slowly adjusting to being home but it’s not happening quickly ❄️
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
