@jacobia there's stuff to like for sure, but lots of inaccuracies; if you're a casual Queen fan, it'll be a blast.

@KALofKRYPTON Yeah, I fit into the ‘casual fan’ category, but because I am unfortunately unemployed at the moment, I’m definitely saving my pennies for Suspiria. I am super duper pooper hyped to see it!

Watch The Great Battle (Korean movie) and thought it was not bad.

I was surprised to find out that the production cost for the movie was only $16.7 million. Which explains why the CGI in a lot of scenes didn't look very good. Compared that to a Hollywood production like Bohemian Rhapsody which cost $52 million to make.

I'm also planning to watch Rampant next.

Batman Ninja is now on Netflix in the UK.

It joins Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which got added last week (although it's only the theatrical cut, so it's unfortunately the lesser version).

I'm hoping this is the start of a decent Netflix / DC partnership, since Disney are trying to take back all the Marvel stuff for their own worldwide streaming service. We already know that DC's streaming service is US only, and so its content will be on Netflix internationally. With any luck, it'll lead to more DC shows and films popping up.

@RogerRoger it boggles my mind that WB would still continue to distribute BvS in anything other than the ultimate cut.

Morons.

@KALofKRYPTON I think WB are just bitter against Snyder at this point, since they so spectacularly failed to do any better after firing him. Releasing the theatrical cut of BvS on Netflix certainly goes against why they forced Snyder to trim a brilliant film into a mediocre one ("three hours is too long for the cinema").

@KALofKRYPTON Funny you should say that. Most reviews I read praise Malek's performance as one of the few redeeming features of the film.

Not that it really matters, anyone can see. No way I'll ever watch it.

Wind's howling.

KALofKRYPTON

@Kidfried He certainly has some fine moments, mostly towards the latter part of the film - but th rest of the cast were a lot better. Apart from Mike Myers.

Hello !
Yesterday I re watched Blow. It's my favorite film. I don't know how many times I have seen it.. Any similar films like Blow ?

Thanks !

@RogerRoger Sometimes the different editions are put up a bit later, so you never know. Not that I'll ever found out, I refuse to watch anymore DC films under the current reign.

I watched Batman Ninja last night. Ummmm, it's a bit bonkers innit?! Certainly not what I was expecting and I'm not entirely sure what to make of it all tbh.

@JohnnyShoulder You've identified precisely why I adore Batman Ninja. It's just mad. When the monkeys start playing the Batman '66 theme tune on the flute in order to summon a giant monkey to fight the Joker's combined fortress mech I totally lost all grip on sanity and just surrendered to it.

@RogerRoger Yeah the film lost me in the middle part with all the transforming fortresses and the giant monkey changing into a giant old skool batman. I enjoyed what came before and after though.

That is not what I want from a Batman movie, animated or live action and prefer a more traditional story. Fair play for trying something different though.

@JohnnyShoulder Yeah, despite loving all that nonsense, I agree with you. I'd never objectively state that it's as good as, or better than, my favourite Batman films, but I'd include it in a personal Top Five list purely for the variety. There's certainly never been a bat-film quite like it.

First trailer for the Detective Pikachu movie. It actually looks like it might work...

Also saw Bohemian Rhapsody recently. Wonderful movie, especially if you love Queen's music. Rami Malek is fantastic as Freddie Mercury, and I got proper Citizen Kane vibes from the film as the lonely Mercury stalked around his huge house, flaunting money and throwing parties to hide his inner loneliness and turmoil.

Saw The Grinch as well. It has some issues that go along with any movie that tries to turn a short Dr. Seuss poem into a feature length film, but it's funny, touching, and is a pretty good version of the story. Certainly better than that live-action abomination with Jim Carrey.

@jacobia It's my favorite of the A24 horror movies released of late. The twist at the end is very unexpected, but cool in a very old-school sort of way.

@Ralizah Yep, all the revelations at the end, putting perspective to all the beats of the story 🤯. The daughter’s scene 🤯🤯!! Awesome score and sound design too. And Toni Collette must surely get an Oscar nomination, by god what an actress! So much skill and craft from all involved in this movie.
