Free Solo.

It win best documentary film at this yearís Oscars.

Even if you donít find rock climbing particularly interesting.

My knuckles were white watching it, even though I knew Honnold successfully completed the climb.

On a similar El Capitan note (albeit this time with ropes to arrest any falls!), The Dawn Wall is a great watch for the unbelievable dedication of Tommy Caldwell (spent almost a decade working out the route) and the perseverance of his partner to finally complete it with him.

Just back from watching it in the cinema. Absolutely class. The scale of that wall is unbelievable when it pans out near the end. A lot of it was very funny too.

Was expecting much better myself.

Captain Marvel is a good show. It's a 90s music fest too, which was nice. Lots of back story on Nick Fury as well.

It leads nicely into End Game.

Watched Stan & Ollie last night and really enjoyed it. Serious performances from Steve Coogan and John C Reilly as the pair after a while you forget they're not really Laurel and Hardy..

I thought it was alright but I seem to have watched it with lower expectations than you lads. It's a Ben Affleck flick on Netflix so how good did you think it would be?!

The Baader Meinhof Complex, an  excellent historical  film with some superbly recreated historical scenes. If the RUC had exacted a similar ferocious response as the german police did, to uppity nordies in the late 60s, I'd wonder how that civil rights revolt would have fared.  For a bunch of 'loose' mavericks, the RAF managed to create havoc and garner a lot of support among the youth in the ī70s Germany. Not in a million years would you have anything resembling those  court scenes  in the UK or Ireland.

Watched it as well great show, I think his bird thought she was more important to him than he did, the "I appreciate you" bit had me in stitches to be fair.

I gave this a go anyway last night. Horrific. First half hour was grand, then I just wished it would end as quickly as possible. Keek

Unquiet graves.
Go and see it if you can. Should be out on Amazon and I believe RTE have agreed to show it. Details the deliberate targeting of innocent Catholics and collusion of British government in the murder triangle in NI. Over 120 innocent people murdered for being catholic under the direction of the RUC UDR and British government.
