    Finally got round to watching Roma. Beautifully shot, but I wish I'd seen it in the cinema. Sat on my sofa, with a slow film it's too easy to pull out the phone.

    Hmm... I am on a break halfway through at home. I kind of like it but it's mostly because of its nostalgic feel. I wonder why so many people are so wild about this. I could not really understand if it would get best movie.

    OK... I am convinced. This movie really pulled me in. I loved it. I. Was lucky to watch it alone on a 65inch TV at home.

    Cinematography is superb really

    Netflix gave it a 95% match by the way.

    So Captain Marvel was basically engineered to siphon money from the millennial & gen z demographics but I don't care; now I know at least one thing about Endgame won't suck. Solid movie, if a little too melodramatic. Two thirds of the script is decent, with the remainder consisting of some fucker phoning in condescending focus-grouped bullshit. Excellent hero, good antagonists, solid supporting cast, decent soundtrack, CGI that doesn't annoy too much, made-for-TV fight scenes, clunky dialogue but with great chemistry, okay jokes. Stay for both extra scenes.

    I liked captain Marvel. I loved Capernaum, even though I had to rely on Turkish subtitles for this Lebanese movie.

    And shit, I didn't know there was a second extra.

    Captain Marvel was great, with the huge "this movie is gonna be full of SJW cancer" I was reading on twitter I was worried. Outside of one small scene it wasn't even remotely about that. There was a pretty big plot hole in the middle but fans of Marvel movies are used to that by now. The action was solid and has got me hyped again for End Game.

    Avengers: Endgame

    Satisfying to be able to conclude this overlong chapter of my life. Good story, plenty of cool stuff, lot of genuinely laugh-out-loud moments, and not quite as much melodrama as I'd feared. Thanos didn't suck as much this time. Not too keen on the inane fapping over bros being serious with each other bro-style, coupled with the contemptuous nods to the women in both the movie and in the audience. Decidedly creepy vibes that kinda ruined Captain Marvel's character, for example. But, all in all... worth it.

    I'm not so much new as not very invested.

    I kinda liked endgame, even the supposedly boring first part. But then again I loved the Leftovers. I'm not sure if I like the whole time travel angle, but it wasn't bad enough to make me dislike this movie. Which probably means that I will be hated for the rest of my life by a friend who felt they did a hatchet job on Thor.

    I saw "Billy Elliott" for the first time recently. Great movie!

    Crazy thing is....I didn't realize that kid was Spiderman (Tom Holland) until today.

    (I should really pay more attention to the credits.)

    I think Tom Holland was Billy on stage in the musical, Jamie Bell had the role in the movie

    Godzilla II. Great cgi, hopeless scenario. The humans in it had better plot armor than the titans.

    Dark Phoenix - eh it was all right but very forgettable like a lot of the x-men movies. I feel its proximity to End Game hurts it because it gets the really short end of the stick in that comparison.

    Can you ever forgive me?



    Pretty good. Though I'm a fan of Richard E Grant's skills and style as an actor, I'm not sure he deserved an Oscar for this. Melissa McCarthy was excellent though.

    The true story behind it is intriguing enough, a dive into an esoteric world. Worth a watch

    I Am Mother on Netflix. (2019)

    It only got two actors but I liked it.
    Robot design looks clearly inspired by Boston Dynamics Atlas.
    Overall the A.I. is a few steps ahead the humans, which I think is pretty much what you would imagine at this level.

    It leaves a few questions unanswered but in a good way.
