This one should count double — taking two for the team.

Watched Hidden Figures last night. I couldn't say no to a movie starring Janelle Monae.

It's mostly just... nice. Although for some mysterious reason there seemed to be something in my eye around the time of a wedding proposal...

In real life, Katherine Goble Johnson is now aged 101 and still married.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

The Boat that Rocked





This is a really very entertaining film about a pirate radio station based on an offshore ship in the 1970’s. The characters are both entertaining and believable. Well worth a watch and the music is great [if you are of a certain vintage].

Christoph Waltz was the superior cast member.

Nevertheless, I don't see myself coming back for a second viewing

     Inglorious Basterds is considered one of QT's best by considerers, up there with Jackie Brown which probably ranks No. 1.

So saith de vrouw van mijn vriend. I recuse myself from the question of Tarantino's #1. Only saying I shan't need to watch it again.

The Wandering Earth.  I’ve not seen very many new movies this year, so I wanted to see one of the biggest blockbusters of the year.  So, you see, the sun, it’s getting bigger.  Like so much bigger.  It’s gonna destroy the earth.  That’s bad.  So humanity pulls together to build some big ol’ honkin’ thrusters around the planet to move the earth into the orbit of another star.  Because, yeah, that’d work.  This here flick, available on Netflix, is dubbed, which is precisely the wrong way to present foreign language films, especially if at some point the viewer really doesn’t want to know what type of stupid dialogue the actors utter.  The film looks slick, though there’s no way to make some of this look non-cartoonish.  Hollywood producers and lawyers should be furious and should drag their Chinese counterparties to court in a jurisdiction with meaningful enforcement mechanisms, because Chinese filmmakers have caught up to their Cali brethren when it comes to making shitty blockbusters, and that’s Hollywood’s domain.

     Yes, it is. I got the ending wrong, something one of the brothers says went right by me.

The Invisible Guest





This is a good thriller about what happens when events get out of control and also the lies told to cover up events. This one has a good story, good acting and a good twist at the end. Well worth a watch if you do not mind subtitles.
