    Watched 1917 at the weekend; very good; the "continuous shot" narrative is a bit of a gimmick tbh (it makes the movie feel a bit like an extended game level at times) but it keeps you gripped

    If we downscaled it to a shaky 320x480 you'd be in though, right?

    Well, I watched Parasite today and I thought it was great. I went in to it having nothing more than a vague idea of the premise and
    I was genuinely surprised at how it lurched around, from initial light-hearted comedy about a likeable family down on their luck, it got darker and darker. As they each engineered another employee's exit and had the next family-member take their place, the family became more and more sinister, but still likeable. Onto suspense when the camping trip was cancelled, still with the little comedic moments (dad sniffing his shirt under the table while Park was talking about his smell) then just flat out horror at the party. I was not expecting that brutal finale, it completely caught me off guard. The second shot to the son's head with the scholar's rock was especially argh.

    (You'd think the new owners would've just taken the bulb out of that light though, if he was really communicating that entire letter every night it must've driven them up the wall.)
    I don't know about "best picture" winner but I loved it and was genuinely surprised *how much* I loved it.

    Actually a bit long bit for no bad reason. Christian Bale was actually decent swinging in and out of a Brummie accent. Good yarn if you are a petrol head (not me) ok if you are not. Better films out there and a lot worse

    Just watched Birds of Prey. Ugh. Cheezy with a bit of light misandry. Yay...
