Ad Astra - someone had a big special effects budget and wanted to spend it all, to the point where the sets dominate the movie. Characters were cold and difficult to engage with, but I didn’t think the actors were given much to work with. Took a long-winded path to say not much at all, and would probably work better without the futuristic space setting. I expect it to fade into obscurity down the track.
Watched this on Foxtel movies tonight. Have to agree, dull and too slow for mine.

Watched Da 5 Bloods on Netflix today, Spike Lee's latest film, and loved it. Better than Blackkklansman. It has a stunning performance from Delroy Lindo.

I was amazed to discover recently that Delroy Lindo is English.

Thought the second half undid a lot of the good first half.

Delroy, however, was great throughout.

A shout out to an old (2006) movie but one of my favourite comedies which I managed to track down on DVD recently. Still as funny as ever, in a so-dumb-it's-genius kinda way. Some will hate it though!

It’s a classic! One of my favourites.

Watched Eurovision Song Contest with Will Ferrell on Netflix. Moderately amusing, 2hrs for a moderately amusing film is too long though.

Its been 12 years now since Ferrell has had a *smile* funny film.

Thunder Road . Indy flick . Tragic Comedy. Lead guy (who wrote and directed it as well ) does an incredible job ..
.. loosely based on the Springsteen song 'Thunder Road'..

The Dead Don't Die is as boring as bat *smile* and The very excellent Mr Dundee is as funny as a funeral. Don't bother watching either.

Watched 'The Dead Don't Die' the other night, a bit underwhelming, watched 20 odd minutes of Mr Dundee, just too distracted by Hoge's teeth to concentrate.

After watching the Feud mini series on Foxtel about Joan Crawford ( I always think of Derek and Clive when i hear her name) and Bette Davis i went and watched “Whatever happened to baby Jane?”. I quite enjoyed it, was probably more gripping back in 1962, not so much now. And i watched Mommie Dearest with Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford. High camp.

Cats : The Movie...what a stinker. Awful.


Knives Out. Was a reasonably fun Whodunnit movie til it dragged the last half hour.

Gattaca ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Manic depression: 42% probability. Attention deficit disorder: 89% probability....”

As a boy, it didn’t take long for Gattaca’s protagonist Vincent Freeman to resonate with me. Although as a teenager at secondary school, I had no idea why his story meant so much to me.

Watching the film as a father with a son... A son named “Vincent”, I made a lot more sense of my lifelong infatuation with this film.

The stories we connect with on the deepest level remind us of our own. And the stories that inspire can teach us self acceptance, or remind us that as bad as things may appear at first glance that “there is no gene for fate.”
