    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part

    Yeah, it's great fun. Hits many of the same beats as the original, but the gags are relentless and the hit-rate puts most comedies to shame. I thought the 'everything's not awesome but we can try to make it so' message was nicely handled (if depressingly relevant) and if nothing else it's the best thing Bruce Willis has been in for a long, long time. Surprised to discover it was 107 minutes, because it didn't feel it at all - the time flew by. If the box office seems on the low side, it should attract plenty of positive word-of-mouth.

    Major new online game coming this year from Nintendo.

    (Or Metroid Prime: Federation Force 2.)

    Apex Legends - Battle Royale by Respawn Entertainment

    Yep, in one game last night I spent ten minutes pinging my team mates after I got in a firefight and they both legged it instead of backing me up. They eventually approached my position when the coast was clear, only to walk right past me. Still, I spent a good 20 seconds sliding down a big hill in the next match. Good game would play again etc.

    True Detective - Season 3

    Really enjoying this. I'm less bothered about the mystery so much as just luxuriating in how good it all looks while enjoying Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff sparking off one another. Ali's good in everything, so you kind of expect it from him but Dorff is a revelation, and I don't think an Emmy nod would be out of the question.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Velvet Buzzsaw's a bit of a mess - a mishmash of clumsy art-world satire and weirdly hokey horror but Gyllenhaal's a hoot, it's good to see Russo's recent Rene-ssaince continuing, and the whole thing is so fascinatingly strange that I ended up mostly glad I stuck with it, even if I laughed at it as often as with it.

    Polar (Netflix Film) - Mads Mikkelsen

    I watched the whole thing and really wish I hadn't. Abysmal. Witlessly juvenile, tonally all over the shop, and the violence manages to be both gratuitous and badly shot/edited all at once. And the leering treatment of half its female cast is outright embarrassing. I hope I don't see a worse film this year.

    Nocturnal Animals

    Upvoted purely for the patio chair comment. He's even more unrecognisable in Outlaw King, to the point where I genuinely had no idea it was him.

    I dunno, this sounds very Hank Moody.

    Mary Poppins Returns

    It's doing OK over here - comfortably number one this week. I expect positive word-of-mouth will mean it sticks around for a little while. Though I have to say, I've not seen it nearly as heavily promoted as Aquaman, Spider-Man or even Bumblebee.

    Bird Box (Netflix Film) - Sandra Bullock

    The structure of the film saps any tension from the middle act, because you already know how it ends up. Silly. Once or twice it reminded me a bit too much of The Happening, which is never the kind of comparison you want to draw. I thought Sandra Bullock was excellent, though - her performance deserved a better film. Trevante Rhodes was very likeable, but had to work to make the best of a thinly-sketched character.
  13. Yeah, it's great. Looks and feels really nice, and there's a strong sense of progression even as you're sent back to the start - whether it's a new weapon, a permanent buff or just a bit of extra story/character stuff. Lovely. Shield's fun, though I'm struggling to look past the sword, especially when you can enhance its special with deflect.
