    The Northman.
    A bit "trippy" but I was engaged enough to stick with it. Would have been a bit underwhelmed if I'd seen it at the cinema. There were some nice scenery shots, but overall, it was a watchable but slightly disappointing experience at best. 5/10.

    The Woman King

    Harking back to how historical epics used to be made ,Viola Davis offers a dutiful performance but the rising star that is Thuso Mbedu and Lashana Lynch's bond in this completely grab your attention and ensure you're invested in their characters.

    Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Saw Black Adam. Went with zero expectations and was passable at best.

    Also watched Kantara, which was goosebump inducing and rare to see Indic/local traditions being celebrated.

    Dogtooth (2009) - 9/10

    Really, really brilliant film. Beautifully shot despite basically being shot in just two locations. A great and interesting premise that is very well acted, very slow moving but it makes total sense. One of those European art films that just hits the notes right in terms of weirdness, everything feels very thought through even though it probably wasn't in many cases - which is cool.

    Made by the guy who went onto to create The Lobster, Killing of a Sacred Deer, and The Favourite.

    A fine film based on the true story of The 1st Australian Tunnel Company who dug under German trenches to detonate massive bombs in 1916 on The Western Front. 8/10.

    A superb and touching film starring John Hurt and Anthony Hopkins about John Merrick who was exploited in a freak show,at times the abuse he had to endure was heartbreaking but the scenes where he was shown love was uplifting,i don't mind admitting during the final scene i shed a tear. 9/10.

    Not about ajax. In all seriousness, a bit of a disappointment, considering the success of silver linings playbook and American hustle. First thor: love and thunder and now this; not a great year for Christian bale. Let's hope the pale blue eye breaks the streak. And I haven't been a fan of isaiah Washington, either. He already reminds me of his dad in that he's basically the same character in this as he was in tenet.

    The Outfit [2022]

    Mark Rylance stars as the cutter, a tailor to you and I. He's been dealing with several mobsters in Chicago, apparently in a subserviant capacity as their pet tailor and dogsbody, but everything changes one night.

    A bit dull, all filmed in one room, not something I'd watch again.

    6.881/10

    A brilliant film based on the true story of hitman Richard Kuklinki in the late 60s/early70s in New Jersey,Michael Shannon was perfect as Kuklinski who was a cold hearted bastard. 9/10.

    Not seen this before. Stodgy, badly scripted mess of a movie with flashy effects. Henry Cavill has about as much screen presence in this as a breeze block. Also has a pantomime villain level performance by Mickey Rourke. A masterclass in making a shit movie on a big budget. 3/10

    All Quiet on the Western Front

    Not one I will rewatch again in a hurry. It was OK but not going to rave about it. Didn’t relate or care what happened to the main character at all. Was interesting to see one of the World Wars from the German point of view. Can’t say I have ever watched any war films like that

    The batman 2022.
    Pretty shite, 90% of it shot in a coal cellar by looks, too long slow and very boring at times. Another pretentious load of twaddle IMO. 3/10.

    Trautmann - The Keeper (2019)



    Movie was shown just in German TV

    Based on the life of Bernhard "Bert" Trautmann, who came to England as a PoW and became a professional football player, a Manchester City legend. Played for City from 1949-1964.
    Legendary his FA Cup final 1956 against Birmingham City where he still played with a crooked neck.
    Undoubtly the best German Goalkeeper of this era but unfortunately he never got a cap for Germany because at that time it was very rare that German players playing abroad would be recognized for the Nationalteam. So he missed the chance to become World Champion with Germany in 1954

    100% agree they try to be the polar opposite of Marvel films with their tone but just end up going too dark most of the time and it's boring. Zoe Kravitz is the only good part of the film..I like Paul Dano too he was quite disturbing but I still prefer Jim Carrey as Riddler.
