Allied. The story of how one unique man must suffer because of miscalculation and the terrible possibilities of mathematics. A gem flawed by perfection.

Movie starts with a 60% existential gaff and ends at 100% as the flawed style of thinking it through comes home. You'd enjoy the movie. With gin....

Hunchback of Notre Dame 1939 - really really good. Watch it with your girl - play your cards right and you might just get to pull out your own heroic, and deformed, dwarf before the night is through.
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.

The Red Turtle. Splendid drawing and no talking. Very good and a bit lip-wobbly.

Except for the last 5 minutes Predestination was an amusing diversion.

The Great Wall where US and Chinese forces defeat the threat from alien lizards who swirl around in their millions and are pacified by a magnetic meteor.

Read what I wrote again.

Yes. Brilliant. It's about the rangers in Virunga National Park in The Congo, home of the last mountain gorillas, and their fight against poachers and SOCO corrupt. A damning indictment of the fossil industry, colonialism, and capitalism in general.
