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 Iíve 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 shÓtty 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, Iíd recommend the book by Greg Sestro (Mark) that itís based on as from what Iíve heard it, if anything, simplifies what is an absolutely amazing, dark and comic story.

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

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.

Is there a better film for Christmas night than The Field?

Itís amazing to think it got a lukewarm reception on release, itís an almost perfect story thatís anchored by great performances by three all-time great actors. And the stark imagery of the western coast matches everything thatís happening on screen perfectly.

ďThis is deep. Very deep. Deeper than you think.Ē

No doubt it's a classic! But a bit lazy and cheap from RTE for Christmas Day viewing.

Saw Brooklyn last night for first time. Surprisingly enjoyable. Ended kind of abruptly but very good overall.

First time i saw it also, a decent watch and similar to the story of my aunt that went to New York in the 50s. Could see why Saoirse Ronan was nominee for best actress and apparently she is favorite for Oscar in 2018 for her role in Lady Bird's.
