#225

Shape of water worth watching then?


#226

lol no

not seen


#227

Hey Manchester cats, Lady Bird a week early (starting Friday)


#228

Loveless - Well this was a barrel of laughs wasn’t it… Enjoyed it for want of a better word although it could definitely do with some trimming IMO. Was so fucking stark to look at, I felt freezing from just watching it. The two car journeys between the leads were so good. Good film IMO.


#229

The scene where the search party are descending into the foggy woods is fucking amazing innit. Wonderful film to look at


#230

Thought some of the social commentary (the selfie stuff) was laid on a bit thick, mind


#231

Yeah, to an extent, felt a bit ham-fisted with that group of babes at the restaurant but I thought it worked in terms of the indifference/detachment of the main lady.


#232

Aye. Just think it could have been done a bit more subtly I guess


#233

Yeah, I think in general that’s the case when it comes to smart phones in films because they seem so incongruous when compared to the long history of cinema without them. Like actually showing someone taking a selfie seems so inherently loaded with commentary because it’s so comparatively new or something?


#234

Made me consider getting a treadmill for my balcony so 10/10


#235

Aye, that would be ace


#236

Black Panther was… ok. The cast were amazing, Wakanda was amazing, it raised some really interesting questions, but the story was pretty shite and really poorly paced. The script was also a bit too memey so will seem pretty outdated in a few years.


#237

missed this at the time, really good…


#238

I’d recommend Caro Diairo by Moretti too


#239

I love this film.


#240

Found Blank Panther a bit of a hoot and I’m not a “marvel person” at all. A lot less fighty fighty smashy smashy than I thought, with only Martin Freeman being a weak link.
