Saw Anatomy of a Fall last night.
A really superb adult drama.

Alfs yes it was excellent the actress that played Emily Maitlis was so convincing I had to double check that she wasn't playing herself

Scoop, about the Prince Andrew interview, is excellent.

On Netflix.

Yes I saw that some years ago. Weirdly Bill Nighy really reminded me of our old guitarist but, well, older.

My pal who does the AA rooms regularly sees him along with untold other actors, bankers, ex-models and all sorts. We once sat outside the Design Museum in Kensington having a coffee after going to the Kraftwork exhibition and I couldn't believe how many fit looking women stopped and said hello to him.

It was almost enough to make me stop drinking. Almost...

Dune 2 was OK. A bit dragged out.

If you like Bill Nighy you have probably already see it but on Prime I think they are showing an old classic Still Crazy about an old washed up pop band. Nighy, Billy Connolly, Jimmy Nail, Timothy Spall, a great watch.

Best film I’ve seen this year (very few tbf) was Snack Shack. It’s a coming of age comedy/drama set in the summer of 91. Similar feel to Liquorice Pizza and The Holdovers.

Director Adam Rehmeier’s first film, Dinner in America, is also worth a watch if you like quirky comedies. It’s like a punk version of Napoleon Dynamite.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
I watched Poor Things on Disney Plus. Conversely, it has lots of sex and swearing. In fact, Mark Ruffalo comes up some of the best swearing committed to the siver screen. It is extremely weird, and I wouldn’t try and interpret it as being any way deep, but I liked it.

What was this thread doing disappearing from the front page? For shame!

I watched 'The Beautiful Game' on Netflix last night and although it wasn't really my kind of thing (although Bill Nighy is always worth a watch) I started to think that if you've got kids and all want to sit and watch something together it's perfect. No swearing or sex, beautifully filmed in Rome and most importantly there's a great shout out to West Ham.

It's fictional but the event itself exists and its heart is in the right place and there's nothing wrong with a 'nice' film in a sometimes shitty world.

Put your arms around your kids, cuddle up on the sofa and have ONE night when you don't watch Frozen again!

Saw Dune Part 2 the other day. Enjoyed the content but Christ was it long!

Would have been ideal as three 59 minute episodes on Netflix or something. One marathon sitting in the cinema though is not for me.

Christ. It’s fucking awful.!

Watched the new Roadhouse the other day on Prime.
I found the first half quite interesting and the second half utter nonsense. Shame.

Living. A English remake of Kurosawa's Ikiru. Certainly not for everybody. But a very good film. Bill Bighy knocks it's out of the park.!

Watched a thriller called Operation Napoleon the other night. Quite good. Set in Iceland. Vivian Olafsdottir is very pleasing on the eye.

Movie studios ain't in it to make 5-10 low budget drama's hoping one gets it right and connects with an audience and becomes masterpiece. That's what your streaming services are for. Movies are now about razzle. Dazzle. Throw enough shit up on the screen. And pray to whatever god/devil you worship. That it brings in enough eyes so you can rise and repeat. !

But as always.
THE MONEY GETS TIGHT. THE SHIT GETS REAL.!
And with any big business. It takes a few years to flitter through.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
My mistake. Yes, I meant Adam Sandler.

As for script/director, there are many, many great films in the past that would not get green lit nowadays. Yes, big budget films have always needed a big star in order to get it's distribution figures, but Billy Elliot, for example, wouldn't get funded in today's market.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
This idea that films and tv used be greenlit based on quality is nonsense really. It was always based around box office and viewing figures and what is and is not marketable. Data driven algorithms are just the modern technological extension of that.

The idea that in the past a studio would prefer a good script with a has-been director and unknown actor over a bad script with a famous movie star and trendy director is just laughable really.

Re: 2020 Movies (now including 2021 and 2022)
"Ben Stiller is the highest paid actor in the world, and Jason Statham isn't too far behind"

I think you mean Adam Sandler, not Ben Stiller.

In any case, Statham earned so much in the last year because he starred in 5 films, 3 of which he produced himself. The Meg 2 and Fast X alone made over half a billion dollars in profit. Adam Sandler has that Netflix deal and makes 3-4 films a year, most of which he produces and some of which he also writes.

What these people earn hasn't got that much to do with data driven algorithms. It's how much work they put in. On the other hand, someone you presumably respect, Leo diCaprio, earned as much as Statham last year and he's made just one film in the last 3 years.

I like Gyllenhaal too but like a lot of actors does some bad ones, he was in 'Ambulance' a year or so back which is meant to be shocking. Won't be bothering with Roadhouse, loved the original though.
