      Can You Ever Forgive Me. Those who loved Richard E Grant as Withnail will love him in this. Hope he wins Best Supporting Actor. Fantastic little film.

      Also saw Vice starring Christian Bale as Dick Cheney. Fantastic performance as ever from Bale. Overall an amusing take on Cheney's role as VP. Enjoyed it.

      Really looking forward to both of those.

      Watched Journeyman and Almost Famous yesterday.

      Journeyman is quite a tough watch but great performances from Paddy Considine and Jodie Whittaker. It's Considine's second as a director but for me didn't quite have the impact of Tyrannosaur his debut.

      Almost Famous is a film I've been meaning to watch for years and it's a fantastic coming of age story with a killer soundtrack.

      Agree with the people above, Bohemian Rhapsody was certainly an entertaining watch and Rami Malek was superb.

      Another one I watched recently - The Wife. Great film and an utterly mesmerising performance from Glenn Close. Thoroughly deserves to win an Oscar for it later this month (7 time nominee I think?!).

      Watched Arrival on Netflix a couple of nights ago. Was always meaning to see it when it came out in the cinemas a couple of years ago but didn't get to. Thought it was superb, especially Amy Adams. Of course, nothing can beat Close Encounters in the alien movie stakes for me but this is right up there.

      Funny how people see things differently. I literally put Arrival close to if not the worst movie I've ever seen. Was really hyped for it because I love smart sci-fi movies, but thought this one had a really thin plot and fell flat on its face.

      Little factoid for you, the part before the concert where they let William into their circle to sing "piggyback ride"...if I'm not mistaken, that came from a Pearl Jam concert where the boys did that with Cameron Crowe.

      Yea apparently was based on his own experiences growing up.

      Can't believe you don't like Arrival and as you say interesting how differently some people see things.

      Yea he completely fu**ed the new trilogy to the point I have no interest in even watching episode IX.

      Bringing back JJ is also pure desperation on Disney's part.

      Can't really see how it can have any real satisfying conclusion this trilogy could end up less liked than the prequels.

      Too late for that now though. Strange one.
      Had all the feeling that Luke had gone to the Dark Side in the set up of  TFA.
      I thought maybe he had turned and then Kylo had gone dark.
      Maybe that's why he went into isolation etc and was wondering if that was where TLJ would go.
      Obviously it didn't.

      Saw 'Polar' the other night.

      The blurb goes:

      "The world's top assassin, Duncan Vizla, is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Against his will, he finds himself back in the game going head to head with an army of younger killers. "

      Throw in the fact that Mads Mikkelsen is the main man, and it's really violent, thought this would be great.

      But, it was a cartoon. Matt Lucas was the bad guy, and didn't work imho. Think its based on a comic book, and seems as much with the rainbow colours. I liked Sin City mind, so it's like I don't like a comic booky type thing -- just thought this was a bit on the crap side.

      Mads is good though, but sure he makes drinking Carsberg look cool.

      Started watching it, quit about a third of the way through. A yawner for me.

      Seen it on tv a few years back but decided to rewatch In The Name Of The Father tonight. It's impossible to find two harder hitting, gut wrenchingly emotional and angry performances than you would from Daniel Day Lewis and Pete Postlethwaite in that film. Shout out to Emma Thompson as well. What a film.

      I thought it was quite funny in places.
      Clearly a bit of a pisstake, tongue in cheek film for me.

      If it was supposed to be serious though, it didn't work.
