Bad day for the cut is good. Cell block 99 was very good too.

I watched the The Lives of Others, yet again.
This time of viewing, near the end when the writer went to the stasi archives (visitors welcome) to retrieve his spy file,  the clerk had a brief look at his docket and says "this will take some time". When a porter finally came to him with a tea trolley chock full of his stasi files, he dryly said to the writer "my respects".

Watched a film called The Witch (2015) on the strength of a recommendation tweet from Rob Delaney. I sat through it for a bit thinking this isn't much kop, as it it went on it got much better building to a fine ending, not jump out scary but one that gets inside your head, I've been thinking about it a lot since I watched it. I've no doubt a lot of people will watch it and think it's shite but I'd recommend it highly.

Not as funny as I thought it would be but compelling viewing all the same. In part it was moving as they drag yer man off to his death in the final scene.

Well acted but it had a cracking cast. The stories it makes reference to are incredible and hilarious too. Stone-arse, the hockey team, the symphony recording, Polinas jailing.

Saw Wonder at the weekend.

If your easily emotionally manipulated probably not for you or maybe it is. I enjoyed it though a solid 3/5.

Kingsman 2 was the most aggressively bad film Ive seen in a long time. The fact the first film was a genuinely surprising and fun film only heightened the sense of increduality at how bad the sequel is. After the first scene with shtty CGI and stakeless action I had a feeling I was in for a turkey and nothing that followed changed that perception.

Agreed, a serious let down after first one.

The Disaster Artist is a super movie, bit mad but some genuinely funny parts and because is based on a true story all the better for it. Lags a touch in the middle but it is worth it. James Franco immense in it.

Looking forward to seeing The Disaster Artist, Id recommend the book by Greg Sestro (Mark) that its based on as from what Ive heard it, if anything, simplifies what is an absolutely amazing, dark and comic story.

The audiobook is read by Sestro himself and its excellent, his Tommy Wiseau impression is even better than Francos.

Have seen Paddington 2, Daddy's Home 2 and Jumanji 2 at the cinema in the past few weeks. Paddington the pick of them by some distance. The Last Jedi this weekend which I'm looking forward to.

A documentary "What Happened, Miss Simone?"  about the life of American singer songwriter Nina Simone. It captures well the undiagnosed manic depressive illness which defined and explained much of what happened to her in life.
Educational and inspirational.

Went to Star Wars tonight. Ponderous first hour, excellent second hour, middling finale. Decent overall.
