The Assistant

Very tedious

(Edit) 17/09/2020

If your idea of an interesting movie is to watch a sad young girl photocopy in an office over a single long working day, then this is the movie for you! Otherwise I would suggest that you find something else to do during the screening of this movie, read a good book perhaps or some DIY?

Joker

Just excellent.

(Edit) 28/02/2020

This was not the movie I expected. This deeply affecting movie was about an abused, dysfunctional, ill dressed, rather shabby man pushed over the brink by miserable modern day life, into acts of great violence. At times, as his fall into ever deeper madness is chronicled, it is almost to unbearable to watch. The Joker was as much the victim as his victims, more so. This is also a movie about crass, uncaring capitalism, and the destruction that it can bring. Thank god there was no caped crusader to fly in to the rescue, and ruin the movie with the usual comic book to movie schmaltz. The actual performance of the Joker by Joaquin Phoenix is breathtaking, particularly the dance moves at the end. Hurrah for a marvelous, pitch black, sustained experience.

IT: Chapter Two

Endless tedium.

(Edit) 24/02/2020

The only good thing about this movie is Pennywise the evil clown, and you don't see enough of him. The rest of the movie is just tedious, endless drivel. I never made it to the end of the film, but after two dreary hours, I was backing the evil clown to win. It just went on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on........

Downton Abbey

Birdbath

(Edit) 30/01/2020

As shallow as a birdbath but quite fun - particularly Maggie Smith's character! It is all a bit forelock tugging, and 'yes sir I know my place', but at least there is a gay sub-plot, which adds a drop of depth. Perhaps this is just the sort of tosh a new Britain deserves?

Avengers: Endgame

Endless tedium!

(Edit) 11/09/2019

Nearly three hours of pompous, ice thin, self referential bombast. Like a huge goodbye advert for the Marvel franchise, but with no real end in sight. I regret every single moment I spent watching this boring twaddle. Do yourself a big favour, spend three hours reading a book instead, I wish I had!
