    Man, this acting business is hard. I'm not sure I'm up for all that anymore.

    Well, I managed to make it to another day so my previous statement doesn't stand anymore. But eff me I'm jinxed!

    Edit: managing to get the fourth new pager in a row, that is.

    The Nightingale 9/10 Spellbinding. Terrific directing and wonderful performances by all especially the lead. Best thing I have seen in a while.

    A hard watch at times, but justified in service to the story. Not your normal Netflix content.
    Brutal as fuck. Also full of incredibly dislikable characters. Utter cunts, all of them!
    Absolutely, testament to the writing and acting, I despised them, but balanced by the leads performances and visuals it manages to get you through, in the hope they get what they deserve.

    Alpha: The Right to Kill

    A Filipino film that was on Film4 last week.

    It's set against the backdrop of the Philippines 'war on drugs' which allows the police to shoot anyone they suspect of drug related crimes whether guilty or not.

    The film itself is done almost as a fly on the wall documentary with a handheld camera following the actors throughout as it shows the perspective of both sides. It is well acted and shot, managing to capture the differing prospects and living conditions, however never really takes on the issues of police corruption or poverty that forces people into drug crimes that it wants to highlight.

    It is an interesting film nonetheless.

    8/10

    Went to the cinema! First time in 5 months.
    Nolan in IMAX is intense!

    If you're so inclined, there's some bloopers at the end of the vid

    Fun fact for the Philippines is that they have a terrorist organisation called MILF.

    Rumours that they're the direct action group for MumsNet are unsubstantiated.

    Gone Girl - 5/10

    So, wife had this on and I dipped in and out then became intrigued by the plot (wife disappears to get husband charged with her murder).

    Trundled along quite nicely, then the bit with the parcel knife made me fucking roar with laughter as I'm always getting moaned out for watching gore! My wife was just 'fuck-fuck-fuck!

    Piqued my interest a bit more, thinking this is going to be interesting how they wrap it all up and then just ended. Stood up and laughed at how shit that was!

    There Will Come A Day

    A Chris Morris film about terrorism in the US. Or more specifically how the FBI stitches up people to arrest them for terror charges.

    It's a comedy. I did laugh several times. It's not as good as Four Lions, to which this is a nice companion, both in terms of subject matter and humour, but it's still very good.

    @drhickman1983 I listened to Chris Morris on the Adam Buxton podcast, talking about the making of this.

    Really want to see it - the stories about the FBI framing the families sounds awful and also hilarious at how badly corrupt they were/are.

    The Nightingale

    As others have noted, this is a fantastic film, although perhaps not the wisest choice after an all nighter and on a comedown as it does get quite emotional. Some of the events of the film were predictable, one scene in particular has an awful, tragic inevitability to it, but nothing the breaks the story. Highly recommended.

    9/10

    The Naked Gun (Classic on Netflix) 10/10

    'Heroin, heroin, Frank'
    'Nordberg, that's a pretty tall order. You're gonna have to give me a few days on that one' xD

    Spiderman - Into the Spiderverse - 98%

    Absolutely loved it. The animation is superb and the voice acting too notch. Great origin story and everyone should watch it.

    Spiderverse is great. Absolutely nails Spiderman, and the animation is brilliant.

    Knives Out

    I haven't watched an old fashioned whodunnit in years, and this is a good modern take on the genre. It's a good cast who all play their roles, and the mystery is well constructed.

    I concur. Almost makes me wish there wasn't a sequel, as I don't want them to fuck it up

    Anyone looking for this on Amazon and had the same problem finding it that I did, you'll get better results of you use the actual film title of "The Day Shall Come"

    Timetrap

    A solid time travel story that doesn't seem much to start with, but once it gets going it really builds. Plenty of young cleavage and leg on display as well. It does get a bit Olaf Stapleton, but that's not a bad thing.

    It's the one with the caves - there is some camera shenanigans, but I don't think it's the one you mean.

    They had American accents, so I assumed the US.

    Yes, I recommend that also.

    I consistently misremember that title

    Mindhorn

    Had a couple of laughs but not a film that needs much thought. Mindhorn himself reminded me a bit of Alan Partridge as well which isn't surprising with Steve Coogan being involved. Not long either at 80 mins.
