    Water and Sugar: Carlo Di Palma, the Colours of Life

    ★★

    Really quite dreadful film documentary. No sense of structure or chronology, loads of talking heads saying the same thing, barely any detailed information about his abilities and technique. Ninety minutes of platitudes.

    Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

    ★★

    Classic case of a "bro" story being entirely uninteresting with the female characters making the whole thing watchable. Having Aubrey and Anna as the protagonists and having the whole thing from their POV could have been a new take on Romi and Michelle. Instead they're constantly left hanging in scenes while the two blokes go off and gurn at each other.

    Not as good as the poster BUT has Sylv playing the wise old mad man who explains who the antagonist in full on Curse of Fenric evil from before time mode. Absolutely worth it for his performance.

    Was slightly distracted during the fashion show by the extra who looked like Peter Hitchens.
