They sound more like Cockerneys to me.

We watched Red Sparrow. Eh. I know it's fiction an that, but pfff. I don't think I'm cut out for the 'nasty Russian bad guys with outrageous accents laid on with a trowel' thing.'

Watched both of these last night, the latter for the second time. Both excellent, imo.

I will post trailers, for those who haven't seen the films, rather than try to summarise what the films are about:





I will say that after watching 'Roma' I was pleasantly surprised to find out (afterwards) that it was written and directed by a man. It was essentially a film about women in which men were not portrayed especially favourably at all.

Wow !!!! ....what total unexpected romp ..incredibly innovative visuals..a comic brought to life but still a comic just brilliant. Great way to celebrate my daughters 30th. :cheers:
Audience and crtics loved it on RT reviews. Went in with no expectations and only mild interest in Spiderman ....came out with a whole new respect for the team that put this gem together......we were laughing right beyond the credits which are a must watch. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Yes...no...I don't know. :shifty:

Spanish/Catalan...set in Barcelona - try not to read about it as some the reviews give away the central mechanism of the plot which would spoil some of the eerie WTFness.

I'd like to see that one.
I watched another old movie Stir Crazy with Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. Forgettable, except for how ridiculous most of it was. There was one sequence I thought was quality however, when they kept escalating Gene Wilder's punishment in the prison and it only pleased him. They hung him from the ceiling by his wrists and ankles, and when they let him down an unspecified time later, decades of back pain were finally corrected. :lol: :lol:

A bit uneven but very enjoyable ...nods to steam punk and Blade Runner. Amazing animation for the lead....and of course there is a sequel...
The grunge aspect of Sin City and Blade Runner was evident ...maybe a bit of WestWorld influence and for sure Roller Ball.
The 3D in Mini- iMax ( AVX ) was effective without intruding.

This is interesting



Not sure how to judge success as we saw pre-release screening - it's not out til Feb 14th. RT currently at 62% but huge 93% want to see it ...and RT gave BumbleBee 93% rating :scratch: and while fun it's not a patch on Alita.

Our man Abu squeezes off 20 tracer rounds
And that's when she jumps the turnstile
And as she clings to the roof of the speeding train
The Double A down to Sheridan Square
Her cell phone rings
It's, like, her stupid father
Be in the door by ten—again
Pixeleen
Dream deep my three times perfect ultrateen
Pixeleen
Born in the bogs of Jersey
Trained how to love and spy hard
Dropped on the streets of Roppongi
Soaked through on the floor of a noodle shop
And when Abu rams the clip in the miniglock
Up on the catwalk inside the warehouse
You whip a knife from the top of your go-go boot
Just a flash of spectacular thigh
Your pager starts to throb
It's your as-if boyfriend Randall
Better keep it real—or whatever
Pixeleen
Rave on my sleek and soulful cyberqueen
Pixeleen
Penned by a hack in the Palisades
Backed by some guys from Columbia
Shot all in digital video
For a million and change
Flash back to cool summer nights
Freddy can we cut to the chase?
In a room above your garage
Everything about me is different
Symmetrical and clean
This is what I see
Just a girl in girlie trouble
Dancing in the video
With gun and tambourine
Pixeleen
Be good my three times perfect ultrateen
Pixeleen
Born on the floor of a noodle shop
Dropped in the bogs of Jersey
Shot by a guy from Columbia
Soaked through all in digital video
Girl with the sweet backstory
Pitched in a trailer in Burbank
Cast by a cool-enough yes man
Screened at a festival in Utah


Thank you, Fagen and Becker, 20 years ahead of your time

Alita was enjoyable and mostly an accurate telling of the anime. Not sure rollerball was in the original, but whatever.
