      ROFL!

      Hardware, is a good movie. It looks like just what it is, a story ripped straight out of the pages of, 2000 AD. One of my favourite cyberpunk films.

        I watched The Land That Time Forgot. It's more awesome than ever! It was really good to see! With this year's TV upgrade, I can really imagine what it must have been like seeing the movies in the movie theater, really cool backgrounds! Amazing sets and scenes! It was so much fun! Delightful Screenplay!!! Jim Cawthorn & Mike Moorcock!

          Mulholland Drive

          David Lynch's surrealistic non-linear fable about the Hollywood Dream, the nightmare inside that dream and an ugly reality behind all of it.

            I've got a copy of The Dark Tower, based on Stephen King's series of the same name. I just haven't got around to watching it yet. Meanwhile I'm watching all the Gilbert and Sullivan on Youtube that I can.
            sigpic Myself as Mephistopheles (Karen Koed's painting of me, 9 Nov 2008, U of Canterbury, CHCH, NZ)

            Gold is the power of a man with a man
            And incense the power of man with God
            But myrrh is the bitter taste of death
            And the sour-sweet smell of the upturned sod,

            Nativity,

              Just watched, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, on Netflix. Sunk a few beers in the process (hard, cold, wet day at work). Well worth it. Stayed for the accompanying 30min documentary. Fascinating, fictionalised, 1927 Chicago summer's day in the life of a blues diva & her band in a hot stuffy recording studio. Originally a stage play, I'd love to have seen this live (it reminded me of, Five Guys Named Moe, which I saw in the Theatre Royal, Stratford East, many years ago, before it made it's way to the West End), brought more or less, faithfully to the screen, with some interesting tweaks. Excellent performances make the stylised stagey & epistolary original text come to life. Viola Davis is phenomenal, but Chadwick Boseman give the performance of a lifetime, in his last roll. Ultimately, heart wrenching.

              Well worth watching! 😉

                Idris Elba became Roland. Everything else in this movie consists of a bomb sadly.

                    Don't get me wrong, I am one of these Chris Nolan fanboys. Huge fanboy. But I did not like Tenet at all and I paid 19 reais to rent it at google play video.
                    Shame on me.

                      I managed to watch the first two of his Batman movies. Inception left me cold, I'm afraid. Son went to see, Tenet, too much timey-wimey stuff.

                        I love all of his films ( some I have seen more than 2 times ) but I have not watched his first film and Dunkirk ( I have it anyway but didn't watch it yet ).
                        But Tenet is very convoluted and does not seem intentional.

                          It's soooo hard to make any time shifting work in a film. Or TV. Or anywhere really.

                            The only time I've seen time in reverse done really successfully, was the Red Dwarf (season 3), episode (1), Backwards. That's an ingenious half hour, based on the premise that after reaching the limits of expansion, Time & Space start contracting again, played strictly for laughs. Well worth a watch. 😉

                              I have seen the animated film "Soul" which I absolutely recommend.
