A few posts ago you asked 'What's Netflix'? A few posts later you said you had a trial with it. Further back - and as of often - you dismissed something without knowing anything about it. Forget it.

You watch what you like. As if I care.

Might go and see First Man tomorrow or might go to Clitheroe.

Slowly watching Chappie, the robot police film. Those crazy South African accents!

Exactly old son. I will but it does not take away the right to comment on madness when I see it. Just wait until actors are no longer required. That will not be long.

How about a concert with a hologram?

What an utterly bleak, pointless, and self-pitying movie. :?

LOVED Chappie!
People think "queue" is just "q" followed by 4 silent letters.

But those letters are not silent.

They're just waiting their turn.

A Star Is Born interests me not at all, and I have no intention of seeing it. I LOVE Lady Gaga, though. As an actress, that is. I've never heard a Lady Gaga song, and I don't expect I ever will.

Saw Hereditary in the cinema. The theatre was in tears laughing by the end. A load of silliness.

That was before the laughter started.

Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is one of the most offensive movies I've seen in some time. Not because it's racist, sexist, or homophobic or anything like that. It's just that awful.

Didn't make 10 minutes.

I, Tonya was very good indeed. Fabulously waspish performance from Allison Janney, Margot Robbie is great, snappy ice-skating scenes and gloriously cheezy music. Funny too.

Went to see A Star is Born today mostly because of good reviews and also Mrs Rum (who must take most of the blame). Acting exceedingly good, Lady Gaga a revelation. The movie itself? Utterly awful.

Pondered why and it was the message (avoiding spoilers) that ambition and becoming a 'star' trumps everything (especially in America) and even love, that rarest of things in life, an also-ran.

The values are up side down. A shame considering what a well-made film it was.

As an afterthought that is what I hated about La La Land too.

I also saw A Star is Born. I found it bleak and self-pitying with thoroughly unlikable characters I didn't care about. It was like (the excellent) Bojack Horseman if you took away the self reflection, awareness, and irony.

(Edit: already mentioned in previous post. :fp: )

On the other hand..

Watched Phantom Thread on TV this evening. What an utterly glorious piece of filmic art. You might not like the context (high fashion in the London of the 1950s) but the drama and plot are spellbinding. Watch!
