It's totally irrational. I didn't buy Benedict, had read the book, which I didn't like, and think that Jesse Plemons was perfectly cast for BB and the Black Mirror ep but nothing else.

Yet I was a bit unfair. The score is amazing, the cinematography is great and Campion makes the best of a slow-burning drama.

But it was too long, which is becoming a feature of Netflix films.

Anyway, can see why critics love it and I thought it was better second time around but didn't do a lot for me. More of a personal thing than anything technical.

I like re-watching films. Ones I love and, at least for a second time, ones that my opinion is at odds with the masses. Sometimes, you can downgrade a film because of your mood. I thought Pulp was a mess at first screening. Now I can recite it verbatim.

Ha i get that. I remember being told to watch Angel Heart and I thought it was nonsensical on first viewing. Realised afterwards i couldn't stop thinking about it so rewatched it. I've now probably watched it a dozen times over the years.

Didn’t like The Shining when I first saw it. Damned if I could figure out why I could remember whole scenes and couldn’t stop talking about it for years after. Saw it again and realised it was a masterpiece.

Mickey Rourke was really good in that one.

I watched it and really can't see the appeal. The plot was slow moving and predictable, the characters are one dimensional and it was bleedingly obvious from the beginning why the Cumberbatch character was the way he was. I don't like being bored by a film so didn't bother watching again.

Been buying Bogart movies on Blu-Ray of late, I just love the way his characters, in the better films, are neither good nor bad, they are multi-dimensional and complex. A huge contrast to Power of the Dog, films that make you question the main character played by the leading actor.

it is slow but the payoff was great IMO. Thought BC was great, Plemmons just played the straight man. Dunst was good and Kodi Smit McPhee amazing.

Definitely not to everyone's taste though.

The Tender Bar and French Exit, 2 very dull and underwhelming films. Can't recommend.

Watched “The Pledge” with Jack Nicholson last nite. It’s from 2001 directed by Sean Penn.

Fantastic mystery. Can’t recommend enough.

Gold.......! (Stan)Anything but!
Thought I'd stick it out to see how it ended.

Would it be spoiling things to say this is really *smile* house? When the writer, producer, director gives himself one of only 3 real roles ya know it's gonna be a dog.... actually the dogs are the best actors of the lot!

Watched House of Gucci last night. All well acted by everyone and looked good but trying to cram 25 years of story of the Gucci family means it's quite rushed (even though it goes for 2&1/2 hours!). Should've been a ten parter mini series.

The Worst Person in the World. 4/5.

Norwegian drama with a smashing performance by the lead, who won best actress at Cannes.

Definitely not for the puritanical but deliciously engaging for anyone who wants to re-live their 30s.
