Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.

Cinematic presentation of the 1970’s seminal Judy Blume book about coming of age, religious freedom and bodily autonomy: and I only agreed to go to this because I was thinking of a totally different story when asked. In hindsight, nobody’s

The Menu

How this ever got described as a comedy is a bit of a mystery – but whatever the genre I found it a compelling (if absurd) watch.  Having read nothing in advance about it, I really enjoyed the ongoing jaw-drops

Bottle Shock

You’d think taking the story of The Judgement of Paris (the 1976 blind wine tasting where California beat France) and putting Alan Rickman in one of the key seats alongside Bill Pullman would be an instant classic – but this

Metal Lords

In summary this sounded like a fairly hapless teen-rock journey to confidence type story, so during the opening credits I was a bit surprised to see the monikers of Weiss & Benioff (of Game of Thrones fame).  Don’t remember much

Triangle of Sadness

Refreshing to find one of those films that leaves you thinking WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST WATCH?! I don’t understand how this could be so memorable, and yet so irritating. And yet I keep finding myself talking about it.

What a deliciously ridiculous film! Trust Weird Al to put out a biopic that’s totally spurious… and I really enjoyed the implausibility of Dan Radcliffe in the lead role.  Seldom laugh-out-loud funny, but it really had me smiling the whole

The Producers

Ever get it in your head that you just really wanna watch something you’ve seen many times before? I *think* the line that was swimming around in my head was “Oh we wanted to stand up and hiss – we’ve

The Best of Victor Borge: Act I & II

Wonderfully silly Danish piano-playing legend, bordering on racist in that innocent “he’s from a different generation” way; silly wordplay, silly pianowork, silly interactions with other musicians. In a way watching this was pointless because I think I knew 80% of

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

A gang of tropes wind up at a rich person’s home to be tormented and in the mix (IS he there by mistake, or not?!) is Daniel Craig channelling the chicken lawyer from Futurama to solve it all at the

Deadpool 2

It was a long night – but once you rewatch Deadpool it’s foolish not to play on. Not sure if the streamed version of this was different to the last one I watched, or whether my recollections differ due to
