She is gorgeous. She gets them out in French Dispatch btw.

I thought Princess Irulan is a bigger part than Lady Margot. I wonder who will play Irulan.

Florence Pugh.

Irulan isn't really in Dune. It's just that excerpts from her books set after Dune are used to pre-face each chapter in Dune. She only really shows up right at the end.

She's a much bigger role in Dune Messiah - which would make the perfect third part to the movie story, and a good place to leave it off.

I need my bed, but a film called Twilight that I downloaded has just started playing from the USB stick that I had a load of Law & Order episodes on.

In the first twenty minutes, we've had Reese Witherspoon and Susan Sarandon's tits, plus Paul Newman, a young Liev Schreiber, Gene Hackman, James Garner, and a few other actors I recognised. Not much sign of a plot yet, but it's definitely got my interest.

Men (2022)

The only thing I can add to the other reviews on here (the luscious colours, Rory Kinnear's acting and the crazy last 20-odd minutes) is the dandelion imagery.

Dandelions use apomixis to reproduce requiring no other pollination or cross-fertilisation. Each little "fairy" that blows from a dandelion clock is a clone of its parent.

This is used as a metaphor for the naked man and the multiple births which then occur (the boy, the vicar etc) however, does it explain the reasoning for the last birth being of her dead husband? No.

High Plains Drifter (1973).

Clint Eastwood stars and directs, presumably living out his fantasy as he shoots and rapes his way through the Old West with impunity. Alarmingly, when one of his young lady victims tries to take revenge she is restrained by the sheriff and advised "next time a man wants his way with you, you let him have it".

Who'd have thunk ol' Clint was OFTW?

Elvis was phenomenal really lived up to the hype. Butler is outstanding as Elvis and Tom Hanks is great at being the sneaky b*****d colonel.
Obviously with these biopics you need to take parts of it with a pinch of salt but I’d recommend people go see this film - 9/10.


I really enjoyed it 10/10 - and thankfully didn't listen to that bitter twisted w**k that is Robert Daniels.

Went into Elvis with low expectations and was amazed how much I liked it. Austin Butler was phenomenal, far better a performance than Remi Malek's depiction of Freddie Mercury. Some of the more dramatic scenes were a bit Channel 5 on a Sunday afternoon and it took a bit of getting used to Tom Hanks who was like a cartoon character at first but got better as film went on. As good a film I've scene at the cinema for a while

Minions- The rise of Gru

Perfectly acceptable cash-cow miliking. 

The Minions are less funny and the baddies are less entertaining than earlier efforts. There were some laugh out loud funny bits and it didn't get boring. 

Odeon needs to sort it's shit out. They forgot to dim the lights for the fourth time out of the last six we've been.

The public need to sort their shit out. I had to turf folk out of our seats, the wife asked the guy behind her to stop yapping about 20 minutes in and had to ask kids in front of her to sit down. Plus teenagers seem to be clapping at films like Americans now. We need National service back.

5.5/10

Butler's performance is just incredible - particularly recreating the final scene that is so haunting and lingers long after the credits - you couldn't tell if it was him or actual footage of Elvis it was that convincing.

Kids movies are the worse for bad behaviour. Some adults just let their kids run wild as long as they aren’t annoying them. Went to light year recently and someone was just letting their kid run and then crawl on their hands and knees through rows of seats (how fucking manky).

I remember when I was wee I got taken to see a Batman film maybe the one with George Clooney and I was acting up by running up and down the aisle. I then got dragged out the cinema and taken home by my mum minutes into the film. Don’t think I ever misbehaved in the cinema again after that, although if I was old enough to appreciate how bad a film that was I’d probably have thanked my mum for taking me out of there.

Prepare yourself for when he gets older. My son loved the Minions when the films first started coming out, but he's a teenager now and they're just a mindless capitalist cash-grab for idiots, maaaaaan.

Bit shit, as I'd quite like to go see it, but I don't fancy being glared at by mothers for turning up on my own to a film for young children. Especially as I know to keep my pants on now.

I wasn't there thankfully but it sounds like it was relatively quiet with everyone well behaved. You'll just need to wait until it appears online

Sherpa (Netflix)

Eye opening account of the experience of Nepalese Sherpas who guide rich white folk up Everest. No surprise that the people that run the expedition companies appear to be heartless, money grabbing scum. Particularly Russell Bryce who keeps referring to them as militant for demanding better conditions and pay after 13 people die in an avalanche. Also to the scumbag American climber who makes reference to speaking to their "owners" to get them fired before also calling them terrorists.

Had the misfortune to watch the remake of Father of the Bride with Andy Garcia. One of the worst things I have ever watched.

Is it a straight remake of the remake?

Andy Garcia is not exactly the first person I’d think of in the Steve Martin role

So that'll be two shit remakes of Father of the Bride.

I've never seen the Spencer Tracy film - anyone know if we can make it a hat trick?
