Wyatt Russell gets more like his dad with each passing film 😍

In this, it *really* hits home who he is. His mannerisms and delivery are RJ MacReady all over.

I hadn't read that, it's been given a wide release. Actually, it's great to see a studio giving such a big release to an 18 certificate horror in this day and age. But yeah, definitely one for the cinema.

Jack Lemmon is a true hero of mine. The Apartment is a masterclass in the 'every man' role which everyone has been trying to emulate since. He's my favorite part of SOME LIKE IT HOT and he steals THE ODD COUPLE as well, by being both utterly infuriating and endearing at the same time. I know people say this a lot, but they just do not make them like that anymore.

Jack Lemmon is bloody immense in that 80s drama film "Missing". Brilliant film. Really sad though. Vangelis does the music for it.

Jack Lemmon was up for an Oscar for it. Didn't win it unfortunately.

These 4k restorations of black and white films continue to look gorgeous.  Even without a lick of paint it's one of the best films ever made, but Lemmon's expressions and Monroe's jiggling sharpened up did add a little zing to it.  I'll be metaphorically first in line to buy a 4k Blu-ray copy of this of it if it is released to go along with my VHS, DVD, and OG Blu-ray copies.

No Betamax?  Bloody amateur.

I think Some Like It Hot might be in that rare category of perfect films.  I can't think of a single thing that could possibly make it better.  The best last line of any film as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed it and I echo the bit about 18 certificates.  I don't particularly enjoy gore, and there are some bits in Overlord that made me wince, but I'd rather that than have A-Team violence just to squeak a 12/15.

I also saw it through illegal means and I'd prefer to be arrested than watch it again.

I watched Mandy tonight, because the trailer looked interesting. But have to agree here. Its not Rob Zombie horror shit, but I seemed to like the idea of it more than the actual film itself. Its quite slick for what they were going for with the 80s gimmick. And the soundtrack is awesome. But I found the film itself pretty dull. Which might be the perfect tribute to those 1980s grindhouse type releases in a way. The style and bells and whistles were usually better than the content.

If it had been directed by someone who was interested in something actually happening rather than how it looked, it could have been great fun.

Just watched Outlaw King. Standard medieval epic, a real disappointment after High or High Water from David Mackenzie. Also, you barely even see Pine's plonker so there's no reason to even curiosity watch this.

I'll give it a miss then.

Apparently they cut 20 minutes off it from when it did the festivals, can't imagine how boring it must have been before then.

Just been to see The Grinch. The best bit was the Minions short on before it. There was only two of them though, didn't there used to be three main ones?
