Also recently watched The Upside which is Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart. Alongside The Green Book one of the best films I have seen in a long time when it is now Tv Series where most of the funding goes and there has been in a decline in the standard of movies
Agree about The Upside, I thought that was excellent too and definitely made me laugh.

The Joker -

Pretty good film, definitely worth seeing, but pay attention when you're watching it and I'm pretty sure you'll leave at the end with more questions then you had when it started :lol:

Off to watch The Day Shall Come and Ad Astra this coming week.

Now the Cinemas are back open -

Godzilla Vs Kong - if you want to watch monsters beat each other up with some humans running around trying to help or hinder, then this is great, don't go in expecting a deep story.

Mortal Kombat - its based on a brutal fighting game and it delivers exactly that in film version.

Nobody - lead actor from Better Call Saul, goes all John Wick/Equaliser and its an amusing film with some good one liners and action sequences.

Going to watch "A Quiet Place part 2" tomorrow night, enjoyed the first one so looking forwards to this.

I have only seen the trailer, but Anthony Hopkins new film The Father is garnering plenty of attention, although it's certainly not one for a relaxing evening's viewing given the intense subject matter.

Supernova - this looks like a very good, hard hitting film.

Not one for the homophobes though.

Can highly recommend a quiet place 2. After a year of very few good films this one felt like a return to normality (in cinema terms).

I've missed the cinema quite a lot, so I'll be smashing out a lot of trips there to make up for lost time :lol:

A Cineworld unlimited card is a brilliant thing to have if you have a Cineworld nearby.

The Cruel Sea and Reach for the Sky. Both have appearances by Sam Kydd who over a 36 year career appeared in over 270 films as well as embracing many roles (and bit parts which was his recognised forte) in the television medium as it developed in the early days. He played Mike Baldwin's father in Coronation Street for short spells. Never out of work.

Enjoyed the film Quiet Place 2.
Some parts were predictable, but overall a good sequel and wouldn't be surprised at a 3rd one.

Just watched The Father tonight.

Not many films tug on my heart strings (Manchester By The Sea probably being the last one)

The Father - quite possibly one of the greatest bits of acting I've ever seen and for Sir Anthony Hopkins to do so at 83 is even more amazing.

A brilliant film, brilliant acting by the cast but specifically by Hopkins and Olivia Coleman.

If you only see one film this year, make it this one.
It puts you in the mind of someone suffering dementia, so parts of it are naturally disorientating as a result but it keeps you engaged all the way through and never quite knowing what's going to happen next.

Highlights the strain it puts on relatives whilst working out what's best to do for their parent etc.

If you're an emotional person the ending could have you in tears.

Hopkins completely deserved his Oscar for lead in this and Coleman was more than deserving of her nomination.

I believe the script has recently been approved for the third film.

The Mule...starring Clint Eastwood is the best film I've seen recently...well worth a watch if you haven't seen it.

Supernova - featuring Colin firth and Stanley Tucci as a married couple dealing with one of them having dementia.
Very different film to The Father, but I do recommend watching it, very hard hitting but very good.

House of Gucci.

2.5hrs long

Really really good, well worth a watch and doesn't feel like it's that long of a film, it draws you in really well.

Saw a trailer for House of Gucci in the cinema when watching ghostbusters and it looks fun. Will give it a go
