Got around to watching El Camino last night.
Not bad....even though it took me a while to remember what had happened in the lead up to the conclusion of Breaking Bad.

In The Heights ain't Hamilton but it's absolutely brilliant. Lin-Manuel Miranda is a wizard. If you've seen/know Hamilton you can instantly recognise his fingerprints all over it.

Escape from Pretoria - was ok in parts but mostly it did my head in.  The amount of wee torturous scenes as the guys were experimenting with escape issues... I suppose that's the suspense they were going for but for me it was over done.

Spent the last 3 nights rewatching The Godfather movies. I remember when GF3 come out and thought it was pretty good. Having watched the 3 in quick succession again - GF3 is muck in comparison.

Three was a horrible movie.

Instead of telling a story, it seemed as though the movie was set up as a series of scenes to pay homage to, while trying to outdo, the originals. Too big. Too noisy. Too many over the top speeches. Trying too hard.

Which is where it was really at odds with one, in which the action and dialogue was really quite understated and believable, with colour and music used to join those scenes together.

Godfather, fantastic although not a patch on the book.
Just finished Official Secrets on Netflix.  Excellent show

That Official Secrets was very good. I had heard nothing about it.

Its by far the worst of the three, with big problems with the story and some questionable acting, but I still enjoyed it overall. Not every film has to be a masterpiece. And it did have some really good performances and memorable lines.
