Title Year Seen Rating
Fantastic Fungi 2019 1 Apr 20 Rated 6
Really interesting subject diluted by an uneven narrative and some useless CGI. I could watch mushroom growing timelapses for hours though.
The Gentlemen 2019 31 Mar 20 Rated 5
Fun at times and great cast but the casual racism, sexism (and more) ruins it and is unnecessary.
Underwater 2020 29 Mar 20 Rated 3
Competent but forgettable underwater monster movie. Also, who tiles a bathroom in a deep sea underwater base?
Villain 1971 29 Mar 20 Rated 6
Decent British gangster film with some slightly unsteady cockney accents. Entertaining.
Deadly Circuit 1983 25 Mar 20 Rated 7
Film noir with a unique atmosphere that borders on absurdist comedy at times. Keeps you hooked despite its flaws.
Emma. 2020 22 Mar 20 Rated 7
Charming, perfectly cast and beautifully shot.
Class of 1999 1990 21 Mar 20 Rated 5
Gloriously cheesy mashup of an 80s high school gang drama with the terminator. Fun watch and surprisingly good practical effects for the budget.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker 2019 16 Mar 20 Rated 2
Take all the key moments from the saga, stick them in a blender, this comes out.
1917 2019 15 Mar 20 Rated 8
Sometimes it's just how you tell a story. This is one of those times. I was tense pretty much throughout the whole thing.
Jojo Rabbit 2019 14 Mar 20 Rated 4
Well intentioned film that never sustains its own grandiose ambitions. More weak poke than satire. Also please stop with the pseudo German accents straight out of an "Allo Allo" episode.
