Netflix are churning out some amount of shite after a promising start.

Turned that shite off when the lassie started freestyling for the 15th time. Wiggo

90% of stuff on Netflix is drivel.

Hadn't watched this in years. Great film about two Canadian twins whose mother leaves instructions in her will that make them learn about her youth in a Middle Eastern nation (not named, but fairly obviously based on Lebanon) during a civil war.

Tenet.

You need a PHD in physics to have a proper grasp of this one. It sort of becomes clearer at the end for the dumb dumbs but it's really complicated.

Read someone describe it like a parody of a Christopher Nolan film which has gone too far and that is about right.

Visually stunning as usual and the music is incredible. Has to be seen at the pictures.

Left Behind - 10/10. Watch this immediately, it's on Netflix.

Nicolas Cage, an airline pilot, is going through a rough spell in his marriage due to his wife having become an Evangelical Christian. His daughter, also uncomfortable with her mum's conversion, surprises him by coming home from college for his birthday, but he's flying to London so he can take the air stewardess he's having an affair with to see U2 (?)

While he's in the air, millions of people on earth suddenly vanish into thin air. He has to get the flight home safely and get back in touch with his daughter , who was upset to find out he was having an affair. Anyway, he gets the flight back home safely with his daughter's help. Turns out the reason all those people disappeared was

Spoiler :
the fucking Rapture Zlat His wife and son were saved but he and his daughter, the disbelievers in the family, weren't. Fucking loved this.

Read a review saying that it's 'not even so bad it's good', a position with which I strongly disagree Heh

Watched Icarus last night, about Russian state-sanctioned doping in sport. Scary stuff. Eek Wouldn’t fancy blowing the whistle in the knowledge that the FSB will hunt you down.

Great documentary. Everybody's at it though, not just Russia.

Memento is Pinilla

One of those films where you notice something new every time you watch it.

I’m sure I watched memento because you kept going on about it Laugh

It is pretty good tbf

All I think about during a Nolan film is how much of a pain in the arse it must be to write and film.

Boyhood (2014), 7.5/10
Actually thought Ellar Coltrane might be Hawkes' son irl. Anyway, believable portrayal of the life on a kid and his family in suburban America.
