Ooh that Smile film has music done by the guy who did the soundtrack for Utopia!

That's so annoying about it being shifted around due to Queenie.
I was gonna start a rumour that all lighthouses were going to dim their lights in sympathy, but never got round to it.

All Chatwin's stuff is short, varied and good to read. His life seems to be some sort of hilarious boys-own adventure, but with a tragic ending.

@Rambler it was you who started that rumour

@Rambler I’m in two minds about Smile as it looks too predictable so I may get bored yet the trailer does look like a lot of good jump scares. I saw the trailer twice, once before Nope and the other was 3000 Years Of Solitude and both times it got the crowd screaming so now I really want to see it with a crowd for the energy.

Damn, I should have written an angry letter to the lighthouses to complain they were not at half wattage to respect the Queen. A few of those big cargo boats crashing means a lot of free washed goodies on the beach the next morning.

@Kermit1
Glad you've given Raiders five stars, as that is the correct rating!
Is that Babes In Toyland a remake?

Watched Minions: The Rise of Gru tonight, it's on Peacock, watched a few of the Despicable Me movies this week just to catch up. Color me surprised, I enjoyed this movie a lot more than I was anticipating, this is coming from someone who doesn't have Minions as my go to cute characters (that goes to Trolls). I really liked how the Minions sequel felt more like a Despicable Me prequel, than the first Minions movie did. I also didn't expect the movie to take some of the turns it did, from the silly moment where the Minions faked a rainstorm to get Gru to hire them, to the transformations the Vicious 6 did, to even the ending where Wild Knuckles lived and fake his own death to escape.

Going to tag @HotGoomba, I remember mentioning seeing it in the This or That thread when the movie was a choice.

Had the main TV all to myself all day, so I watched a lot of movies.

Blade Runner 2049 (Netflix) - Excellent. Now, it could definitely be a slow burn AND it was long (just under 3 hours), but I'd be lying if I said my eyes weren't glued to the screen from beginning to end. Fantastic world building, an interesting narrative surrounding a gripping mystery, they didn't seem to try to sterilize the content (like the original, it's still R rated), and they managed to call back to the original film without being suffocated by nostalgia. Harrison Ford doesn't even show up until the film's final hour.

Trailer:

Lupin the 3rd: the Castle of Cagliostro (Blu-Ray) - This is often lauded as the seminal piece of Lupin the 3rd media, and after finally getting around to it I can safely say all the praise is justified. In spite of being over 4 decades old it's an absolutely gorgeously animated film, and while the core narrative isn't too deep or original (it see's Lupin thrust into the position of a knight in shining armour rescuing a young damsel in distress from a menacing Count in a picturesque small European nation), it's a breezy feel good movie that just brings a smile to your face. It's also the most tame (dare I say family friendly) piece of Lupin media I've ever watched, making it a great introduction point to the franchise. A bit of warning though, in addition to the original Japanese, this release has 3 different English dubs (1992, 2000, & 2000 Family Friendly). The 1992 dub changes some of the character names due to legal issues of the time (Lupin is called "the Wolf"), the 2000 dub uses the correct names but includes tons of added profanity that wasn't present in the original script, and then you have the "Family Friendly" 2000 dub which is based on that dub but removes/alters most of the profanity, making it the most correct dub of the three. I'm absolutely glad I looked that up beforehand, otherwise I would have never guessed the "Family Friendly" labelled option was the most faithful.

Trailer:

Uncharted (Netflix) - I'll admit first thing that I don't know much of anything about Uncharted as a game series (I played part of the first game as a rental over a decade ago), but taking the movie as it's own thing I liked it. It's not high art, but I thought it was genuinely fun. I enjoyed the banter between the leads, and I was entertained by the many larger than life set pieces (many of which I understand are ripped straight out of the games). Dare I say I might like it more than the first Sonic movie (haven't seen the second), & would watch a sequel. I will agree that Tom Holland looked a little too "babyface" for the role, but it wasn't a big deal.

@Sunsy The movie wasn't bad at all. I actually quite enjoyed it too.

The link on my profile got even worse.

I’ve been reading some of the extracts from the late great Alan Rickman’s diary. Sadly it is nearly all Harry Potter centric. It was funny he felt nothing after reading the Harry Potter books for the first time and seemed to be in two minds with carrying on the role of Snape on with every film.

I was hoping to see more of his inner thoughts on other films particularly Truly Maddly Deeply which is such an incredibly over looked film.

It does feel abit gross though, there’s comments like he thinks Daniel Radcliffe is not meant to be an actor (but would do well as a producer/director) which makes me think digging up a dead man’s personal diary and thoughts to sell isn’t cool.

Gotta be homest with you, these comments really annoyed me. I don't know if I'm allowed to post screenshots of comments or not, but I guess there's no harm in posting these.

Also this is related to Movies in a way so I should be alright.
