just finished my first full rewatch of Zodiac for the first time in years. still really great, maybe the best Fincher? flies by. amazing that Jake was only like 25 at the time, him and Ruffalo <3
watched Warrior for the first time yesterday - no idea why it took me so long, easily Tom Hardy’s best film, manages to not have a shit/weird accent for once thank god. anyway it properly blew me away - the fight scenes were incredible, so realistic, and I think the tension and performances managed to overshadow the slightly hackneyed plot. 9/10 at least for me.
rewatched Spotlight again over the weekend. fucking amazing film. again, Ruffalo is amazing.
also watched Philomena for the first time last week. that was quite a nice little film. Judi Dench is brilliant in it, Coogan is pretty Coogan. good for him though.
what else have I watched… can’t remember. 2 films I turned off pretty quickly - La La Land - couldn’t work out if the opener was a joke but as soon as the second song started I turned it off. fuck that. and I loved Whiplash. glad I didn’t go to the cinema for that. also turned off Jackie after about half an hour. maybe I’ll go back to it because i usually love natalie portman but I found her voice really distracting and the film just kind of boring tbh. don’t normally give up on films but I have been watching a lot recently…
