    Yeah, it was hyped up quite a bit, so it can be a bit of an anticlimax by the time you see it. It was worth seeing once. The cast was very good and so was the music, of course. But not much of a story. There was nothing I hadn’t seen in the countless bio-documentaries that I’ve seen about Queen. Actually I felt exactly the same way about Rocketman.

    The set pieces were good but the story was sanitised. Mind you, if it hadn't been, it may never have made it past the censor!

    An Elephant Sitting Still (2018)
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8020896/
    10/10


    four-hour existentialist masterpiece from China. I really did enjoy it a lot. Pity that the filmmaker killed himself after finishing it.

    Something very funny and suddenly realized that the boy is a reasonable great actor now.

    Wonderful, kind of sad story.

    I’ve been watching a lot of movies lately, since I got my new cable and internet connection. I have a suite of channels called Hollywood Suite, four channels each dedicated to a decade: 70s, 80s, 90s and ‘00s. The 70s channel often has older movies than the 70s and the ‘00s channel often has newer movies. This set of channels is available in Canada only.

    Recently I’ve watched:

    Five Easy Pieces (1970). I had never watched this before. I was expecting a lot, and it didn’t quite deliver for me. Though Karen Black was terrific I thought.

    Easy Rider (1969), very good.

    A Hard Day’s Night (1964). Terrific

    Tommy (1975). I had never watched this in its entirety. Great music.

    Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1978) Terrible acting, good music.

    Casino (1995) Terrific, Martin Scorcese is a remarkable film maker.

    There Will be Blood (2007). Daniel Day Lewis is a remarkable actor.

    The Andromeda Strain (1971) I love old sci fi.

    Latest for me: Swimming Pool (2003). 6/10 worth watching.
