There Will Be Blood is my favourite film of all time, everything else is competing for second place.
Such a disappointment. Not only does Tenet have the worst dialogue of any Nolan film by some margin but that same groan-inducing dialogue makes up the vast majority of the films runtime. As expected Tenet looked nice and the final action sequence was pretty cool but the 2 hours leading up to it were just saturated with unbearably poor writing from someone capable of so much better.
I was acutely aware while watching this that it was essentially a Michael Jordan vanity exercise but at the same time the story of his time with the bulls was so compelling that I honestly didn’t care.
The almost mythical status Michael Jordan now has in basketball reminds me, as a football fan, of the legend status that Maradona has attained. It’s almost impossible for modern players, no matter how good they are, to compare themselves to figures that have essentially transcended their sport and documentaries like this or Diego Maradona only enhance the myth and make any comparisons even harder.
I was worried before seeing Infinity War last night. I was worried there were too many characters to include, I was worried Thanos would be a disappointment and I was worried that it would descend into a relentless 2 and a half hour punch up. Luckily I had very little to be worried about. Infinity War turned out to be one of the funniest, most well crafted and thematically tight Marvel films to date.
For having such a huge cast…
I wasn't sure going in that Lady Bird would live up to the hype I'd seen around it especially considering it isn't normally the kind of film I would love but wow this is a special film. Every element of it worked together perfectly to create a film that felt incredibly real and credit for that I think has to go to Gerwig and the cast. The small details in the film are what makes it so believable and true…
