Sure if TV has one it'd rude not to have one for film. Watched the new Coen brothers one on Netflix " The Ballad of Buster Scruggs". Good watch, series of short films, very good and funny in parts.

Finally got around to "First Reformed" earlier in the week and thought it was fucking stellar.

New "Suspiria" is pretty good too. Totally different vibe to the original and doesn't try to recreate it, which is really the best way to go about it. Not without its' flaws but I was pleasantly surprised

Last film I watched was the new predator one. It has some good moments but ultimately comes across like fan fiction. The very end feels like it was made by the lads who did Sharknado.

I gave up before the end of the Predator one but it honestly wasn't as bad as the AVP ones. fan fiction is a good way to describe it

Watched The Rock and Face/Off back to back over the weekend there to get a good nostalgic dose of Nic Cage and I hadn't seen either in years. Both are still good dumb fun, with Face/Off being particularly enjoyable. Its impossible not to get an interesting watch out of such a premise.

Bohemian Rhapsody is worth a watch. It'd have to be an utterly shit movie which would ruin the experience of hearing Queen songs blasted through a good sound system and, thankfully, this isn't it. While it doesn't do anything you haven't already seen within the obscurity->fame->indulgence->redemption template, it's a decent film. Loud Queen is always a good thing.

Finally getting to see Manchester by the Sea.  Heavy stuff,  but really good.

Just back from seeing The Children Act.  Film adaptations from books are always tricky but I thought it worked well.  I only thought the book was good,  and I'm a huge fan of Ian McEwan, but the film was very enjoyable.  I must revisit the book.

New Lars Von Trier film "The House That Jack Built" hitting the big screen next week. Not expecting much tbh but I'll go see it regardless.

Bohemian Rhapsody. I read a couple of reviews that made it sound like I'd hate it. I loved it. Have seen it twice now. It seems the biggest criticism was that it didn't contain any close-up shots of penetrative sodomy in New York sex dungeons. But, despite this obstacle of absence, I still managed to get into it. I do fucking love Queen's music though, and to be honest I find it hard to understand how anyone who does love the music could really hate the film.

I just re-watched Adaptation. I love how it weaves so many styles together without becoming pretentious or annoying.  Funny old flick.

I'm probably getting my hopes up unreasonably, but it's beginning to look like Hollywood may, believe it or not, have made a Godzilla film that won't suck.
