    Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds

    ★★★

    Watched in an autism-friendly screening, which seemed in practice to mean nothing more than no adverts (which are noisy as hell, normally). The lads (3, 9) got on well with it, though the older of the two has seen the original cartoon series, having got into it via YouTube - at school! I did day dream a fair bit myself, including imagining the King Louis character being played by Mr. Peanutbutter and the rest of the film being a vehicle for the entire cast of BoJack Horseman if that happened.

    ★★★★

    Melancholic nostalgia drenches this beautiful movie with an ironic ending that took a few attempts (and two discs, thanks Cinema Paradiso) to reach. When you're in love with a beautiful woman, you watch your mouth.

    ★★½

    Tomb Raiders of the Lost Ark or Indiana Jones and the Temple of Tomb Raiders. Points added for: watching the European Premier and thus seeing the lovely enthusiasm of the cast/crew.

  • Whiplash

    Whiplash

    ★★★½

    Effective homage to the original Karate Kid trilogy, complete with two dimensional characters who rhythmically focus the audience's attention away from the irrelevant plot devices and toward the homoerotic, mastabatory father-son relationship - rounded off with a money shot dream sequence that cuts before anticipated applause.
