Saw The Last Jedi earlier. It's good but not great. Missed opportunities and underused characters are the problems. The previous two were both better.

Kingman: The Golden Circle

Mostly passable enough with a bit of meh.

Predictable, losing the effect the ultra violence had first time. Jokes weren't great mostly.

Elton John as Elton John was by far the star turn.

IT (2017): Neither as good or as bad as what others have said. It is a bit long and repetitive and the CGI isn't that convincing. Some of the kids have defined personalities while others do not. The psychological grounding for their fears which manifest as Pennywise are only directly addressed in some cases, which partially explains why a sense of repetition sets in because there is no real development. They just move from one location to another and encounter Pennywise. Rinse repeat. It wouldn't matter in a routine slasher, but this film pretends to be telling a story about close friends and the demons they face.

Pennywise is OK, but constantly speeding up his movement probably wasn't a good idea.

All in all, an average Hollywood horror, probably on par with Annabelle Creation, maybe slightly worse. 5/10

Watched that when it came out but don't even remember it. Nanny Diaries was fun so only Match Point to go.

That, but with at least two exclamation marks.



Watched Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri last night.
Absolutely brilliant. Funny, moving, shocking, pretty much everything really.
Frances McDormand surely has to be a shoe in for all the awards.

Watched 'Before I Go To Sleep' with the better half last night. Enjoyable. At times it felt a bit too 'Memento'-ish with the anterograde amnesia and the slow reveal of information/clues. Visually felt like a lot of modern drama/thriller adaptions (à la 'Gone Girl', 'The Girl On The Train', 'Dark Places') with washed out grey tones, but in fairness this was a 2014 release so it is really one of the early ones adopting this aesthetic, but it still feels a bit too familiar. It is a rather economical 90 minutes which is surprising considering the source material, and it's ability to kind of avoid voiceover exposition (though obviously substituting a camera for a written diary acts as such, but it works a bit smoother). Overall it was solid.

I, Tonya.

The true-ish story of ice dancer Tonya Harding, who may or may not have been directly complicit in the deliberate injuring of rival, Nancy Kerrigan, before the 1994 Winter Olympics.

Well acted, quirky, dramatic and funny, Margot Robbie is superb as Harding, but Allison Janney steals the show as her absolute bitch of a mother.

Nope.
Making domestic abuse funny, regular breaking of the fourth wall, basically saying not to believe any of the accounts, and at one point actually berating its own audience. Not your usual Oscar bait bio.
