Cruella

As someone who loved Maleficent, I was very excited to hear that they were FINALLY doing another movie starring the villain, as someone who finds them more interesting. I was also a bit skeptical because Disney hasn't been doing very well in live-action adaptations, but watching the movie made me very relieved because I was definitely satisfied & I really think they did justice to the Villainess of Fashion.

There's so much to love about the movie. The music, the cast, the filming locations & most importantly, the FASHION. You can tell that every item of clothing was well thought through, which made it that more enjoyable to watch, especially those worn by Cruella. The outfits reflect the time period very well & I think it was genius to set this movie in the 70s, a prominent time for the fashion industry, showcasing 2 polar opposite styles trending at the time. My only critique is the lack of fur since it was such an important part of the character in the cartoons. I do hope it'll be included in the sequel.

I know that there are a lot of similarities & parallels to The Devil Wears Prada which is understandable, but I don't really see that as a bad thing. There are so many other movies taking place in other industries with similar scenarios, it just so happens that these 2 movies revolve around the same one.

The movie made quite a few changes from the original material, which I honestly don't mind, but maybe an issue for some who are particular about things like this.

There are a few things I would improve on, like showing instead of telling which happens a lot when Cruella's explaining things, but this movie's perfect example of the good outweighing the bad. I think everyone cast for this movie did such an AMAZING JOB. Both Emmas were excellent in their respective roles, as well as Joel & Paul who made amazing henchmen. Special shoutout to John McCrea, I hope to see more of his projects.

8.5/10

Dio

Just watched the Dio documentary, released 2022, and thought that it was a decent enough piece of documentary film making. I was one of the ´Sabbath can´t be Sabbath without Ozzy´ brigade but I have to admit that on reflection he was a refreshing change and they did some great stuff with him up front. His solo career was even better (the early albums). Came over as having been a decent bloke and by heck did he have a great voice.

On the Line

Watched the new Mel Gibson offering, another lockdown film with a small cast and fewer locations and it´s a bit meh!

It has some good reviews on the film sites but you can see the twist coming from very early on, although that did elevate it a little beyond a run-of-the-mill ´psycho takes your wife hostage and you have to get her back´ yarn. It´s watchable, but nothing more than a solid 5 or generous 6.

Gods Creatures

I watched ´Gods Creatures´ yesterday and I´m still thinking about it today, which is a good thing.

It stars Emily Watson who puts in a breathtaking performance as the stories main character and while the cliche of the ´small Irish fishing village´is one with which we will all be familiar, this particular story plays out in a way that is quite novel and interesting.

The plot synopsis is; A mother tells a lie for her beloved son that rips apart their family and close-knit Irish town -- ultimately testing her own sense of right and wrong.

Well worth a watch, but it´s not an easy one.

The Banshees of Inisherin

This is a ´must watch´ and it is spellbinding from the first moment of dialogue to the last through all the intervening pregnant pauses.

Beautiful scenery, excellent funny script, brilliantly acted. Just watch it. It should win a basket full of Oscars.

Black Adam

The latest Dwayne ´The Rock´ Johnson film. I watched it so you don´t have to. It canters on at pace, very superficial storyline, great special effects. Lots of explosions.... and I mean lots.

Thoroughly missable but would pass a couple of hours on a wet afternoon if you´ve nothing better to do.

Home Alone

I watched the 1990 ´classic´ for the first time in over 25 years as part of a Christmas build up to try and move me towards slightly more Christmassy than the Grinch which I am.

It hold up okay, although the scenes in the house where a very young Culkin tries to fend off the bad guys is relatively short despite my mind having built it into the entire film. The lack of mobile phones, as ever, dates it a little but it is still a yarn which moves on at a decent pace and offers the odd slapstick laugh.

Nice cameo from the awesome and much missed John Candy, which I had totally forgotten about, and despite some jokes which fail to hit the mark after three decades it was an enjoyable 90 minutes.

Inception

Didn't really get it 2/10.
However, viewed on a 11 hour flight with free drinks may have has something to do with it.

Land and Freedom

This was a Ken Loach film which had passed me by when it was released in 1995 but I was tipped off to it by a neighbour when we were discussing the Spanish Civil War. It´s pretty good, for 1995, and obviously pretty low budget.

It focusses on the infighting by the anti-Franco forces, the anarchists, communists and trade unions and tells the story as to why the people lost their fight against the fascists.

Contains the immortal line ´You should be killing the fascists, not each other´.
