Mr Jones - 8/10

 

Historical drama about how Welsh journalist Gareth Jones travelled to Moscow and then, losing his Soviet minders, sneaked into Ukraine to become the first person to report on the truth behind Stalin's 'economic miracle'; the deliberate starvation of millions of Ukrainian people in a man-made famine created by the Soviet regime.

Excellent choice Funky.

Watched it a while ago, well worth 8/10..

 

Have a good Christmas 🎅

The Matrix: Resurrections - 3/10

 

What was the point of this? My expectations were low going in and it still failed to reach that low bar. They actually joke in the movie about how nobody wanted them to make part 4 and they were forced to by the studio... I think it may have been a cry for help from the writers more than anything else.

I'm gonna watch this for the sake of it.

 

I'm not a Matrix fan (the first film went over my head and I don't think I ever watched the sequels) but I'm a big John Wick fangirl 😍

(However....as bad as it was, it was oceans better than the other film I had to sit through yesterday: 'Clifford The Big Red Dog')

Captured in a moment of weakness (just after eating yesterdays leftovers) and unable to move.

HTSBO or HerThatShouldKnowBetter forced me to watch 'Clifford the big red dog'.

I was doing fine up to the long necked hyena ✔️but lost interest after the chicken fainted :huh:.

As if the film wasn't bad enough, the political rant near the end  was just too groan worthy for words :suspect: 🥴 :suspect:.  2/10.

 

I was warned :bigsmile:.

 

Keep safe out there 8) .

The Last Duel - 8/10

 

While I'm generally not a big fan of Rashomon-style 'multiple subjective viewpoints of the same story' movies, this medieval France story of a woman trying to get justice  and the high-stakes fight to the death that results between her husband and the accused was well done (apart from Ben Affleck's blonde hair and Matt Damon's ridiculous beard).

Don't Look Up - 7/10

 

Surprising funny satire that takes aim at US politics, media, social media, obsession with celebrity trivia, politicisation of science and of all aspects of our lives, in the face of something that shouldn't be political (in the case of the film it's a extinction-level comet headed for Earth but really it's Covid) and weird tech billionaires. It's so on the nose about just how stupid we've all become it's almost depressing.

Being the Ricardos  (2021)

 

Straight from the start, the film didn't have much of a chance.

"I can't be doing with Nicol Kidman!"

Not quite sure what we expected from this film, but it failed in so many ways.

A behind the scenes look at Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez business and personal life, quickly disintegrates into ''was Lucille a Communist, and 'look how Lucille Ball suffered because of Desi Arnez's womanising'.

The only part I did enjoyed was, a brief nod to Lucille's ability to see how a comic situation could be enhanced for filming.

Described as a 'Biographical drama film' .

A simple look on Wikipedia would give a better insight into Lucille Ball's life and save you watching 2hrs of dross.

Cate Blanchett was originally cast for the part of Lucille but dropped out before production began.

Would Cate have made any difference? I doubt it very much, the film is simply poor.

 

So there we go, yet another 2021 film to avoid. 2/10 tops :mad:.

Would have been 0/10 if it hadn't been for the actor with the 'lived in face' J.K. Simmons being in it :hihi:.

 

Keep safe out there 8).

Spider man no way home. The best movie we have seen in many years.

Even if you're not a particular Spiderman fan this movie is so multidimensional it offers something for almost everyone and brings new life to the film industry.

We Need to do Something.   7/10


 

Psychological horror about a family trapped in a bathroom following a tornado.

This was so close to being great, I was so close to loving it.

It had so much potential but just fell a bit short.

There was also a bit of the storyline that felt pointless to me, added a dimension to the story that I felt wasn’t needed.

I did enjoy it tho, and they did a good job to say it only stars a handful of actors.

Lamb   8/10

 

I also watched this. It’s soooo strange/ borderline ridiculous I suppose, but I was enthralled.

A couple of Icelandic farmers find a strange creature in their barn.
It’s bleak and sad, but beautiful and (I believe) metaphorical.
When it finished I was like ‘WTF’ and just sat and stared at the blank screen 😂
