    The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part


    I think I finally get Radiohead.

  • Sleeping with Other People

    Sleeping with Other People


    “I’d rather fail with you than win with somebody else” is literally a line in this movie, so let us not pretend that’s it’s not a romantic comedy in the great tradition. 

    But it does feel different. Maybe new. Maybe just not tired. Or self referential and mocking. 

    I liked it and recommend it to you. 

    I do however agree with this review -  a sequel starring Xander and Naomi is something I’d definitely get up for.

  • Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police

    Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police


    The rise and demise of The Police as told through the lense of Andy Summers, the guitarist and probably lesser known of the three band members. 

    This is the sort of documentary that I could watch all day and all night and into the early hours of the morning and contemplate rewatching the next day.

    The story of his relationship with his wife and family, which is woven through, is heartbreaking. 

    I'd like to see more of his photography. What an awesome record and memory. I imagine him getting lost in that archive for days.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout


    Brace yourself for some serious taking-the-piss level lens flare. I was so distracted I forgot to be wowed by how beautiful it looks in Kashmir. Must visit there one day and see it for myself.
