Duck, You Sucker!/A Fistful of Dynamite: Meh. Sergio Leone western without Clint Eastwood. Thought it would be better. Found it a little hap-hazard. I am not a fan of Leone's directing - all these close ups of faces, and the bloody slow motion! No wonder his movies last so god-damn long! Like, we get it - now move on to the next scene, why don't you? Not a waste of time, particularly, but not that glad I watched it.

I enjoyed the first Bourne movie I saw, as it slowly reveals the effects of JB's special training, not only to us, but to Bourne himself. Plus an innocent girl who gets unwittingly swept up in a world of violent subterfuge.

This 2016 movie is a real disappointment, though. I would recommend giving it a miss:


The absence of any surprise, a rudimentary plot, cardboard cut-out characters and a shortage of ideas means that you find yourself watching, in glazed disinterest, variations of the same situation over and over again:
Agents zeroing in as JB uses a crowd scene as cover to make some essential rendezvous. Athens, Berlin, L.A., but the action sequence is identical: JB rushing purposefully through a crowd, agents lose his trail, despite shooting anyone who stands in their way etc.
Not just nonsense, but boring nonsense.

Didn't realise we had a secret agent/trained killer at MB!

Onwards

Best Pixar film I've seen in years. Fun, funny and emotional.

What is the deal with this Sicario? I thought it was supposed to be a great movie? I've watched an hour and a half of it and I am bored ****less. I also have very little idea what is going on. **** this.

The Green Knight

Years from now, David Lowery will be known for releasing some powerful masterpieces. This won't be one of them.

Watched the three Millennium films by Stieg Larsson, the original Swedish ones, not the rebranded US ones - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. Loved them to death, but I'm glad it was the originals I watched. I may go on a Scandi-movie binge.

There were a lot of issues with this but I LOVED the camerawork and world building. Great production all around. The story was just silly.
