Death of Stalin - laugh out loud funny - which is a bit unfortunate because I was watching it on a plane.  Palin's performance was perfect and a well practiced role from his Python days.

Fabulous movie. I need to watch it again. Beria got what he deserved.
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

Finally got around to watching the restored* version of Ken Russell's 'The Devils' - a masterpiece, certainly a stand-out performance from Oliver Reed.





* the dvd extras are well worth watching as they included much of and about the censored scenes, that have not beenable to be put back into the remastered UK version.

So, while most of you don`t care about children`s programming....

My kids started watching Hilda on Netflix.  They were immediately entranced with it - like they have been very rarely before.  I quite enjoyed it too.

Something Thread.  Daniel Day Lewis made a rare bad choice on a post-retirement script.  He's a high society designer in 1910s (?) England, she's a great complexioned Kraut/Scandi chick who exposes his closet homosesuality  Hard to care.

 :huh:

Their relationship was all kinds of weird, but I don't know where you get the gay bit.
You know I'm going to lose
And gambling's for fools
But that's the way I like it
Baby, I don't want to live forever.

I think you missed the thread of this movie.

Since Daredevil is coming back to Netflix this month, I've been putting myself through the effort of finishing Luke Cage season 2 (which is kinda meh compared to the first). And I see there's even a season 2 of Iron Fist... now that's going to take major willpower to go through.

THE MANDALORIAN FIRST IMAGE, DIRECTORS REVEALED

DETAILS EMERGE FOR LUCASFILM'S LIVE-ACTION SERIES HELMED BY JON FAVREAU.

Production on the first Star Wars live-action streaming series has begun! After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. The series will be written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). It will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer. Stay tuned to StarWars.com for updates.

First episode of Daredevil season 1 really pissed me off and was probably the final straw for me in terms of superhero movies/series.

That episode was a decently written detective story. Except it was with a superhero. And it was all acclaimed at the time. If they wrote a general investigation story without superheroes, nobody would had cared. But because there was a blind guy kungfuing everyone, it was suddenly awesome. Sad!

I realised that I gave up on Luke Cage Season 2 and have no desire to touch Iron First.
