Andy Garcia / Sofia Coppolla really doesn't work. I can remember Sofia Coppolla getting stick for her performance (& the accusations of nepotism) at the time, again at the time, I didn't think she was too bad, but watching again - she ain't good! Garcia isn't great either in what was an absolute gift of a role. Hammy stuff at times. Were 1 & 2 were original and trend setting, 3 somehow manages to be a cliche. Maybe too much time passed between 2 & 3 and the Genre had really moved on.

Part III never made sense. But part I and part II were masterpieces. Part II probably one of the greatest movies of all time.

Molly's Game on Netflix,  the true story of Molly Bloom who ran Poker Games for celebrities is well worth a watch. Interesting psychology behind her decision process. She featured on the Tommy Tiernan show in January 2020, very interesting character. From the beautiful state of Colorado too.

seeing as the Olympic diving is currently on. Jason Staham's latest offering is Wrath of man. It has little or no plot. You won't find any Oscar winning performances. But it's pretty good as a shoot'em up.

I like Statham movies. They are obviously rubbish but watchable rubbish you can switch your brain off and laugh at.

Latest Suicide Squad movie....great fun. Much better than the first one.
No Oscar winning performances but a great bit of silliness and gore.

Same here. And there is nothing wrong with that. Not everything has to be intellectually challenging.

Watched The Mule on Netflix.  Thought it was excellent and a bit mad that it's a true story.

Thought Wrath of Man was very good.  Put it like this, Tenet had all this hype as if it were some master piece while Wrath of Man didn't.  Wrath of Man was a far better film.
