Not really.
Aagh, don’t know anymore. I mean, it involves some knitwear. Does that make it twee?

BEATS is great, aside from the somewhat silly police battery incident it felt really natural and possibly the most realistic portrayal of coming up on drugs and general talking shite I’ve seen in a film. Really funny too.

I know it was a Friday afternoon but only 1 other person in my screen on opening day. Hope it finds an audience.

I’m jealous! Acid house would be the one cultural phenomenon I would teleport back to, given the chance.

Despite knowing very little about Pokemon, I greatly enjoyed Detective Pikachu. In the scene where Tim is looking round his dad’s apartment and asks “Who’s there?”, a small boy in the front yelled “It’s Pikachu!” as if the protagonist was a complete idiot. :joy:

Good luck to anyone who tries to convince me that this is going to be anything but awesome

I feel like I’ve seen the entire film in that clip though.

Yeah, Julieta was very good and I liked the batshit insane-ness of The Skin I Live In, though that was an acquired taste I admit
