    I've been watching many mystery science theater episodes. They've kept me busy and entertained during the lockdown. I've also watched their live show a couple of weeks ago where they riffed an old episode. Moon zero two.. I liked it. Good stuff. I want more.

    My favourite episode is time chasers. It's just magic every time I watch it. Pure magic.

    Alita: Battle Angel - 6/10

    I've never read the Manga or knew of it until after.

    I thought it was a good movie. I just found myself very disappointed in that it spent the entire movie building up to an event that was never going to happen in it maybe for the sake of getting a sequel and nothing more?

    There was lots of back story brushed over that I felt could have been explored more and there were many sudden choices made by characters that felt out of place.

    Jodorowsky's Dune-10/10


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jodorowsky's_Dune

    As a fan of the book(s) and horrified by Lynch's failed attempt at the film story, and with a new movie version expected soon I found this movie fascinating.

    As confronting as Jodorowsky's movies are I've always had time for this guy's work. An engaging insight into Jodorowsky and how the Hollywood machine can kill a good idea.

    Tenet-8/10

    Yes I went to the cinemas. They are open her with COVID restrictions.

    I'm a big fan of Nolan's films. This is a highly complex film story that owes more to Inception than to Interstellar.

    It's a film that probably requires a few viewings to really get everything out of. Extremely complex but engrossing.

    X-Men: Last Stand-7/10

    X-Men spectacular. Hugh Jackman was always good as Wolverine.

    The Fifth Element-10/10

    This was always a brilliantly unique science-fiction film. Always worth revisiting.

    G.I. Joe:Retaliation-5/10

    Heavy on the big action. Light on script and plot (most of which was borrowed from old James Bond movies).

    Quantum of Solace-7/10

    Not a bad James Bond film. Daniel Craig is one of the better James Bonds. Interesting to see this flick again and the pacing and timing between plot exposition and action sequences and car or boat chases.

    R.I.P Sean Connery the original was still the best.

    Starsky and Hutch-6/10

    Ridiculous but fun. Great car. Ben Stiller's finest moment is still Tropic Thunder (my opinion).

    2 Guns-7/10

    Enjoyable enough heist/action flick. The plot, again, is a reboot of a number of other movies but worth a look.

    Cirque du Soleil:: All Together Now-?/10

    Very interesting. Paul, Ringo and George Martin get a lot of screen time in this.

    Arrival-7/10

    Saw it when it first came out at the cinema. A second viewing was o.k..... intriguing.

    Totally captivating. The archival remastered footage was magnificent.

    The Mule-7/10

    An interesting true story told well, as usual, by Clint Eastwood.

    WW84 (Wonder Woman 1984)-6/10

    In my opinion the first twenty minutes of this film went too far down the road of "female empowerment" and being "politically correct". In the context of a Hollywood movie this was too much when the character backstory in this section could have been told in five minutes.

    In this case the end result was that the plot didn't gain enough traction quickly enough. Hollywood films are like pop songs; they have to hook the audience early on and hold the audiences' attention.

    Gal Gadot and Chris Pine are great in their roles; Gal really does a good Wonder Woman. Hans Zimmer's music score was dramatic and excellent.

    Too bad the weak plot let them down in this flick... the first Wonder Woman movie (the origin story) was better.

    I agree on Wonder Woman 1984. I didn't care for it at all. Then they also had to go into detail to show us how she learned to fly or why she came to have the power to fly.

    Shadow in the Cloud-0/10

    Possibly one of the worst movies ever made. It lacked any form of logical plot or story arcs and couldn't decide what type of movie it wanted to be. Confused and illogical rubbish..... give it a miss.

    Have you seen "The Road" with Viggo Mortensen? How would you rate this compared to that?

    I didn't see the film and don't plan to, however from what I know of it its really really bad, and makes no sense.

    It contradicts the first film with the amazons being reluctant to train young Diana and suddenly she's in olympics? And how is it possible that macintosh screens display real time videos in 1984? Also why the fuck 1984 like a big-brother reference or what?

    This film is garbage and it also features something even worse than they did on SGU with the whole body swapping shtick with the stones. So I heard Chris Pine is posessing another guy in this without his consent? What the flying fuck is going on in this film?!

    WOKE stuff ruined this film while the first one is one that true feminists should be proud of...

    And as for me...i "kind of" saw Snack Zyder's J.U.S.T. League

    I'd rate it ehh...8/10? I liked it but some things also didn't make sense and it was just too sentimental at times, understandable given the passing of his daughter but at times it felt like his original vision got altered and this is not quite it, with all those music clues I didn't necesarily enjoy and all those songs put in it.
