Re: Joker

I agree. I think he’s def up for an Oscar nomination. Although a couple of times I felt it was a little contrived (the Tai Chi type movements and the dancing on the steps - I thought was maybe playing to the Academy) But he played the role with incredible physicality. I thought DeNiro was a brillian...

Re: Venom

I avoided this at the cinema, but rented it at the weekend. I’ve got to say I quite enjoyed it. It’s not a brilliant Marvel movie, but I think it’s been a bit harshly treated. There’s a lot of the movie devoted to bavckground and it’s slow to get going. It is completely predictable and formulaic, bu...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

I am not normally a fan of biopics, and I hadn't really intended to see this at the cinema (I'd seen the trailers and decided it wasn't for me) but it was the only movie that suited my timings and I went in a little reluctantly. It was serendipity (I've always wanted to use that word). I thought it ...
