    Extremely simple movie that is nothing like Snatch save for the fact that it is also British. I kept thinking it was going to be like Snatch or maybe even one of the Ocean’s movies but then it became evident that it was almost over and there was no room for it to be anything else. Instead it was a simple movie. Under 90 minute runtime was a welcome surprise.

    Not as picturesque as his others. Instead we look at the artist. A movie like this takes it’s time which is acceptable. I wonder if the ending of this movie inspired the Tough Alliance music video?

    I saw Mugen Train alone at the Regal Cinema on Court Street today. First time visiting a theater this year.

    Mugen Train turned out to be, appropriately, a long episode of Demon Slayer. It offered virtually no exposition— Mugen Train is strictly for fans. Fortunately I am a fan, having enjoyed the first season at the beginning of the year.

    This all makes it difficult to assess and rate. I also admit being in a new environment adds more factors…

    I liked this movie very much.

    Very entertaining to see such a physically strong man be taken down in this very special way. Body positivity aside, I think Burt's physique was a very good look, overall, for men. Would care to see more of this in the future but I know I can't hold my own breath. Many characters were very rude but none were physically imposing like Burt who we are pretty sure was the rudest of them all. Isolation seems to really sting in this picture. Can't believe this was Connecticut! Runtime was without flaw.
