• Spider-Man: Far From Home

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    ★★½

    It’s a real mix. The National Lampoon’s European Vacation stuff is excellent. Wrapped in possibly the worst Spiderman movie to date. Terrible lazy idea. The real thrill ride was Parker keeping them Air Max One’s clean with 90 gallons of venetian sewage water being fired at him. Edge of your seat stuff.

    Still don’t understand why Disney doesn’t see any investment in going back fixing CGI. Let’s face it, it’s a good move that let down by a floaty CGI finally on the mono rail.

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★½

    This has gone up in my estimation. Even the music worked better. It’s just that Spiderman kicking about Queens. Just feels like tactile New York. No Downtown high rise and tourist NYC landmarks just Staten Island Ferry and Corner shop front ATM booths.

  • Pavement: Slow Century

    Pavement: Slow Century

    ★★★★½

    That lack of confidence in SM back stage at the Brixton gig says so much about their breaking up during Terror Twilight now.

  • Neil Young - Rust Never Sleeps

    Neil Young - Rust Never Sleeps

    ★★★½

    Here for the Jaw.Road Eyes.. Poppin’ off and fking about back stage to Cinnamon Girl & Like a Hurricane, best scene dock job in the world.

    Lucasfilm slammed Neil Young. C&D opportunity never sleeps.

  • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    ★★★½

    Ford Perfect.


    This looks astonishing.. It’s Terry Gilliam making Fifth Element. Some of it is jaw dropping to look at.. beautiful. This was made with a 3rd of the budget of Revenge of the Sith, and in 2022 it possibly looks like a Blackpool toy filmed at 1080i in comparison to this at it’s best.

    Just wanted to check on the greatest end title sequence of my childhood.

    ★★★★½

    ‘November is the cruelest of months’

    The dance of red banners and flags at the end of five hours.

  • Bonnie and Clyde

    That ending lit a match.

  • The China Odyssey: Empire of the Sun

    The China Odyssey: Empire of the Sun

    ★★★★

    Spielberg working with Bale is amazing. Malkovich and  Pantoliano on the streets of Shanghai. J.G. Bollard’s frank telling of his experiences. Really good vintage ‘making of’ film.

  • Empire of the Sun

    Empire of the Sun

    ★★★½

    I had Hershey bar in the mid 90’s while in London. It was rot.

    Havn’t seen this since my parents rented it one weekend in 1988. Think it just had as much of profound effect on me as watching Jaws for the first time two years later.
