I both loved and hated this film. It was so well done, but I felt dirty after watching it. Ray is just a terrible human.
I kinda felt this as well but then thought - the idea was in front of the brothers the whole time who did not want to pursue it.
But to open the 100th store directly across the road and completely put them out of business is cold. Ice. Cold.
My old boss - who owns two stores - said his behaviour was probably exaggerated, and that the McDonald's family has "squillions" lol.

Have to be ruthless in business. Like you say FP, it was all there for them and they didn't want to capitalise on it. They were too worried about being the nice guys (supposedly).

Absolutely it was an asshole move, but it's business at the end of the day. And Ray had the attitude to succeed.

Yesterday (2019)

Went to see it with my wife yesterday (!) for our wedding anniversary and we both really enjoyed it. Your life won’t be changed by watching it, but it’s a really great celebration of The Beatles’ music with an interesting story concept – what if they never existed and only one person remembered the songs?

Two things that I didn’t expect from the trailer: 1/ Ed Sheeran is a fairly main character, not just a cameo, and 2/ The versions of the songs are really great. Himesh Patel has a really great singing voice that works really well with all the songs and the live version of Help! was absolutely killer.

8/10

Crazy Rich Asians - Entertaining rom com which isn't outrageously funny, but is well executed. Was good for a hangover 7/10

BlacKkKlansman - Handled some pretty serious subject matter with a deft, light-hearted tone. Very good 8/10

bland
boring
rubbish

I've now watched it twice and just don't get why it's so highly rated ?


In contrast I also watched Spider-man: Homecoming........ while I still prefer the Tobey era Spidey films (including.... yes Spider-man 3). I actually like the movie more than I previously did. I do find it quite humourous that Michael Keaton steals the movie as the villain. In much the same way that Jack Nicholson stole the movie in Batman '89 (just think it's quite funny that Keaton was largely overshadowed in Batman '89. While he does the overshadowing nearly 20 years later in a movie in which he is the villain).
How come you watched it twice if it was rubbish?

Saw this one last night with wifey and we both loved it. I found it much funnier than I was expecting. The first half hour or so especially, cinema was cracking up regularly. The music I was expecting to be great and it was. Agree help was amazing. I've had it on spotify rotation today.

Himesh Patel reminded me so much of an Indian russell brand.

9/10 although I don't think it's necessarily a 9/10 movie. I just really, really enjoyed it.

The Last Samurai.
Seen it several times, but saw it again recently. One of those movies where if it's on I have to watch it.
I think it's chronically under rated, but it's a beautiful film. Picturesque landscapes, great acting, an excellent score from Hans Zimmer.

I liked the movie but the only dark spot i have is the star overshadows the movie to a degree. I am not sure Cruise was the right person in this role (don't get me wrong, did a good job).

The Professor and the Madman.

Set in Victorian times, Mel Gibson plays a professor who takes on the job of compiling the Oxford English Dictionary. Sean Penn plays a former American army surgeon who submitted over 10,000 entries while he was undergoing psychiatric treatment. It was an interesting concept but the movie is pretty uninspiring. 5/10.​

Hotel Mumbai.

The story of the 2008 Islamist terror attack on the Taj Hotel in Mumbai. As you would expect it's pretty brutal but it didn't descent into gratuitousness. The pacing is good, keeping the tension high as the terrorists play a deadly game of hide and seek with the guests. The characters are mostly stereotypes - dumb terrorists, heroic hotel staff, a sleazy Russian businessman. Overall it was quite well done. 7/10.​
