The Irishman 9.5/10.

Excellent film, at 3.5 hours I didn't think it was too long as it was riveting, only one person left the cinema before the end.

My main quibble would be that it was a pity it wasn't made 20 or 30 years ago, as it is easier for a young man to play an older man than vice versa. On the other hand, that gives the later scenes more poignancy.

Also, the driving was very slow, back in those days I'm sure people used to drive faster.

I don' wanna quibble too much though as there was so much to like - the story, the performances, the backdrops, the cars, the costumes etc.

There were lots of cool cinematic things too, like the tracking shot at the end kind of mirrors the tracking shot coming out of the taxi depot at the start of Taxi Driver.

A must-see, in fact I already want to see it again.

Will rewatch it when it comes out on Netflix.

Pacino was very good as well considering he has been making total crap for the last 20 years.

just watched damsel with him as the lead. he actually has some decent comic timing. wouldn’t be up there with clooney in oh, brother... but still.

damsel
solid 6/10

a western that isn’t a western.

i wasn’t completely gone on this one. 5/10

nice to see mysterio in a film. he was always my favourite bad guy.

i don’t like how they make spider-man out to be an unlikely hero when peter parker is the unlikely hero but once the suit is on then he’s a cocky, quick witted teenager. hopefully moving out of tony stark’s shadow will help.

joker 7.5/10

really liked it. the ending took from it a bit but the fact that you can come to your own conclusion, by and large, makes up for it.

that girl living down the hall was 👌🏻

Le Mans 66, just back from it.

Havn't enjoyed a film that much on the big screen in a long while.

Immensely enjoyable. The two leads are terrific, Bale in particular. The race scenes are superb, genuinely thrilling.

An often hilarious show that never veers toward sentimentality. Two grade A movie stars fizzing off each other , a near perfect movie that deserves to find a big audience.

8.5 /10
