One of the best comedy series in recent years, I agree, to you it's probably no Mrs Browns Boys but I liked it
It's painfully try hard shite. And I love Matt Berry.

Whenever Watiti gets free reign over the "humour" it becomes painful. As the new Thor film demonstrates.

Not a film buff, but got to see the Joker film with Joaquin Phoenix a few days ago. Actually preferred the character in this to what was superbly played by Heath Ledger a while back. The way they wrote his laugh (affliction) into the script was genius and perfectly acted. Can't say the film was a head fuck ( of sorts ) but the staircase scene (or specifically the music) was a brave inclusion given the context. Hope they can do a sequel.

Went to see Elvis this afternoon. It's pretty bleak tbh, not in a critical way, just sad

Watched The Gray Man on Netfix.

Bog standard 1980's acton fare. Gosling reprises his role from Only God Forgives and Evans has more ham than a French Charcuterie.

All in all a bit pants, especially for $200m

Watched A Private Function the other night. A film about the illegal raising of a pig during ration times after the war. Quite enjoyed it and I really have no idea why

Also Time Bandits which is batshit crazy, kinda so bad it's good. The ending got me Googling which led to The Adventures of Baron Munchausen which also sounds batshit crazy and think I'll have to watch that at some point too

A Fish Called Wanda too, loved that. We kind of went on a Michael Palin/John Cleese bender but still haven't seen Monty Python which I guess is considered a crime...

I loved it. Jason Bourne but with a sense of humour.

Ryan Gosling is the leading man we need, but not the one we deserve. He's also a straight 10 which never hurts.

Instead we get Chris fucking Pratt playing Mario.

The career of Chris Pratt will be pondered over by historians decades from now. To think at one point he was being mooted as Indiana Jones.

Forgot all about clockwise. I remember it being pretty good but must be well over 20 years since I watched it.

Made me chuckle quite a few times, quite enjoyed it. Lots of English countryside, I'm easily pleased.

Brazil - Really enjoyed the whole dystopian feel and it being quite trippy. Another kinda messed up ending. Think I need to look for some similar films but wouldn't want anything too weird or just a full on head trip

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen - More whacky than trippy like the 2 in the "trilogy". More silly and fun. A happier ending!, though not entirely straight forward. Some ridiculous moments along the adventure. Enjoyed it

Monty Python - Watched all 3. I enjoyed them and laughed at a few bits. Think I was expecting too much and/or it doesn't quite click with me. Kinda half watched at times and missed a few bits my partner laughed at so maybe will watch again some day



Tonight's film..... Nuns on the Run :D

Try some of Woody Allens early works Sleeper, Bananas and Love and Death are all worth it!

Be interesting, I remember loving it as a kid, but can't actually remember anything about apart from the basic premise... Watched Clockwise recently, and it held up, Fish Called Wanda is an absolute classic, so will be interested in your view on it.
