Belfast ★★½

Man, I fucked up this #bangersonly thing again. But in my defense my mom really wanted to see this and I am an excellent son.

You know what though? Pretty good. If QT and PTA can make one, why can't KB? I say good for him. Really enjoyed Ciarán Hinds in this too. That guy is cool.

You know what else? I don't need to read a single interview to know that Kenneth Brannagh has been spouting off things like "ooo this is how I saw things as a child" and "ahhh memory is a funny thing ya know" to justify his choice to make this black and white. But lets cut the crap, Ken. You and me both know you took one look at the finished product and went "hmmm, not QUITE Oscar-y enough".
