  1. The Call of the Wild good family film, ticks all the boxes. If you can get past the weird choice of making all the dogs fully CGI, you’ll love it. harrison ford having a great time too and put my INDY5 fears to bed too.
  2. Little Women (2019) Never seen any of the other versions and didn't know the story going in, so my rating may not be reflective if you have already been exposed to the story - my wife for example liked it but didn't love it. I loved it. I was hooked from start to finish and yes, I was a little pissed by the time the film ended, but I was welling up several times during it. I expected it to be good, I didn't expect it to be that good. 4/5
  3. Contagion Even scarier watching it this time around seeing how it appears to be running through a real life checklist of behaviours and outcomes that are playing out in reality with COVID-19. I put us at around the 35min mark of the film by now. 5/5
  4. If the whole film isn’t leaked by the Nov date it’ll be a miracle. I don’t just mean spoilers I mean the whole thing. The finished version is sitting on hundreds of hard drives right now, it’s only a matter of time before it leaks.
  5. I believe the way they're playing it now is that spirit of Candyman possesses a new person, which means we can get a new actor kiling people but still get Todd as a ghostly spirit/voice. It's his voice in the trailer - just older and more gravelly so hard to identify at first. I also didn't realise that that was Vanessa Williams in the new trailer, playing the same character. She barely looks older, never mind 28 years older!
  6. Tony Todd is still in it, though. Also, I don't think 'Say My Name' works as a spooky remix the way that 'I Got 5 On It' did in 'US' but I am very excited for the inevitable next film from Peele that gives us a terrifying version of Haddaway's 'What Is Love' or Aswad's 'Don't Turn Around'.
  7. There's little entertainment news that comes out these days that is genuinely shocking but I literally gasped when I saw this pop up on the feed yesterday. If this had been floated as a rumour ahead of it's confirmation I would have laughed at the idea and if Matrix was here, he'd have laughed too. Setting aside the feeling that any Indy made without the input of Speilberg, Lucas and Ford is not a *true* Indy film.... then I'm ok with this change? Look, KOTCS was a pile of shit. Yes, there were *moments* in it that were good but a few good moments do not a good film make. Overall, we all wish that had just not been made. How much of it was Lucas' fault? Supposedly it was his desire to update the storyline to be about Aliens/Russians, in keeping with the time period's obsessions and the serial nature of Indy's adventure. It makes sense but at the same time, it doesn't *feel* like Indy... How much was it Ford's fault, for agreeing to do it in the first place, to get back in the hat and then allowing Indy to become something of a joke figure and worse, having a menagerie of insufferable sidekicks alongside him? (I'm not talking about Shia btw, his Mutt is FINE in the film but jesus christ, John Hurt and Ray Winstone really stink that film up.) How much was Speilberg's fault? Everything looked cheap as fuck. Everything was shot on backlots or with green screen. His self-imposed sub-100 day shooting schedule surely resulted in some takes being accepted as just "good enough". How much of the action did he actually shoot or hand off to the 2nd unit? The bike chase around the college is great! Real old-school Indy feel to that. The truck chase, the ants, the fucking monkeys in the jungle? Not so much. And if I was betting, I think Speilberg did the latter... Anyway, this is a long way of saying, maybe Mangold coming on board is not a bad thing. Maybe he brings fresh eyes to a series that has run out of steam and gives a beloved character an appropriate and fitting send off. He's done it before with LOGAN - yes, a very different beast but still... I dunno. I'll wait for more info before melting down on The Raven message boards and starting an on-line campaign to have Speilberg executed or something.

  9. The PDF is already out there, isn't it? It was on reddit last week.
  10. That sounds right but also isn't it revealed that
  11. Moulin Rouge (2001) Long been a favourite of mine, stuck it one last night and let my 8 year old watch it with me. Still had my misting up at the end and singing along all the way through. I love it. 5/5
