    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★

    Bravo Marvel. You did it!!

    To pull together over 20 films, 10 years of investment (financial, artist and emotional) and countless different characters as coherently as they do here is mind-bogglingly impressive.
    Fans get everything they would want, expect and deserve.

    And a numb arse!

    Not perfect but it ever could be.

    ★★★★

    David Robert Mitchell could very easily have made a big budget genre film after the success of It Follows. That he chose to make this instead makes my respect for the man only grow.

    This film is like the love child of Hitchcock and Lynch as prescribed by Easton Ellis and Elmore Leonard. Sure, some references to those influences are a little too explicit but mostly this is a glorious and contemporary homage to old Hollywood.

    Garfield totally owns it.…

    ★★½

    An interesting enough story but it's a bit Erin Brockovitch lite. Keener isn't given much to work with.

  • A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery

    A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery

    ★★

    If you're going to make an 8 (eight!) hour film you really need to ensure it is an immersive experience. Diav sometimes achieves this. Sadly not here.

    Meryl Streep described this film as causing a "molecular change" to her body. All this did to me was numb my arse.

    ★★★★★

    An all round bona-fide British classic. Heart-warmingly funny with a top notch cast and tremendous effects. Could become a Christmas favourite for all the family.

    ★★★★½

    Still feels fresh. Laugh out loud funny, sends up the genre perfectly, and Cage is excellent.
