    The Thin Red Line

    I heard people talk about immortality,
    but I ain't seen it.
    l wondered how it'd be when l died.
    What it'd be like to know that this breath now
    was the last one you was ever gonna draw.
    l just hope l can meet it the same way she did.
    With the same... calm.
    Cos that's where it's hidden -
    the immortality l hadn't seen.

    What's it like to be lying in the middle of an unfamiliar jungle with birds…

    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★★★★

    Well that was a whole lot of entertaining fun! Great soundtrack (the slow Hit Me with your Best Shot in particular) and some nifty choreography - especially the scene of Margot Robbie on roller skates in front of the car pulling all kinds of gymanastics to get on the roof! And of course, seeing a bunch of gals kick ass is always worthy of a huge smile and mutliple exclamations of "you go girl!" I haven't had this much fun since my last viewing of Guardians of the Galaxy.

    They Came Together

    I realize it was a spoof on romantic comedies, but it was not my thing. I found it totally unfunny. All of it. But hey, I guess that's just my sense of humour; I need dark or subtle. This was as far from that as one can get.

    Dogtooth

    ★★★★½

    Dogtooth is disturbing. It creeps into your psyche and stays there for days. It plays like an absurdist comedy at first but quickly shows its true colours. It is a gripping, compelling, shocking and extremely sad story of three nameless nearly adult children who live in a world created exclusively by their parents.

    By "nameless" I don't mean that we are never told their names; I mean they have no names. The implications of this are enormous (take a minute…

    Man of Steel

    ★★

    There is a scene in Man of Steel that says it all.

    In the middle of a showdown with the bad guys in downtown Metropolis with people everywhere, a flaming truck or some other huge thing is thrown towards Superman who is standing in front of a building. A building presumably filled with people.

    Superman jumps out of the way.
    He jumps out of the way.
    Superman.

    The truck goes into the building destroying I don't how many floors killing…
