Can you ever forgive me

Totally enjoyed this move along with the fantastic performances by Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant..

Based on a true story.. A bittersweet, comedic drama..  5/5

I don't know if it's possible to find a link and if it is I'm not the man to do it ;)
but there's a very good and interesting review of The Mule in the March issue of Sight & Sound by Violet Lucca
raising many points that I've not really read anywhere else... I'd be interested to see what you all think..

It's rare for a film about a Mexican drugs cartel and the impossibility of the American dream
To be either disarming or funny, but Clint Eastwood has blessedly delivered one that is constantly both

I've been away touring a while and havnt been able to see the movie yet. Hopefully this weekend...

Cool, interesting looking back through them...

Great review batfunk2...

I'm so eager to see this film...

I think this may have gotten released Stateside last year but only just opened here..

I was so scared this film might fail.. I'm a huge fan of Laurel & Hardy and grew up with their films on tv, still watch them to this day.
When actors play real  life people, especially those that are so well known its a huge hurdle to shake that
out of your mind and accept the performances, it does happen but quite rare I think.. 
In Stan & Ollie it most definitely does happen. Both Steve Coogan and John C Reilly are both absolutely superb as Laurel & Hardy..

This film mainly takes place during their last ever tour together (with a couple of flashbacks to their prime years) in the UK 1953. Their film career long in the past and now live performance is their only means of income.. They find themselves embarking on a long, hard tour of UK theatres to dwindling crowds, their fame on the decline and Ollie's health not too good..

I absolutely loved this film. Within minutes I was totally buying into the characters and was absorbed in their story.. some of it very funny and some of it very sad..
Basically a love story between two men whos lives and careers had been entined for over 30 years..and now coming to an end.. Also superb performances by Shirley Henderson and Nina Arianda as the boys wives who join them on tour and do their best to support their husbands..

Another nice touch was the audience breaking out into spontaneous applause as the end crdits rolled. I can't remember the last time that happened..

Reilly really should get an Oscar nomination if theres any justice..

New "interactive" episode of Black Mirror dropped.. Anyone see it ? Thoughts ?
Personally I found it a little underwhelming...

Finally caught up with
Black Panther

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole movie..

I'm not a major comic book film guy ( tho I've seen a few now) but I don't think it matters if a film stands up
 and I think Black Panther does.. Good story, great acting and the whole film looks amazing..

Great flawed hero and a great ensemble cast.. I actually cared about these characters, I felt emotionaly connected..not something I've felt with other films of this type..
