The Irishman

I had to remind myself that I posted in the trailer thread when it came out that it looked shit.

I was wrong. It is an incredible film. So, so pleased I was wrong.

I don't know what's wrong with me, lads. I must be some sort of celluloid ignoramus. I love Casino, but hate Goodfellas and sat through The Irishman under duress.
Even my best mate said I was 'r' worded - and he hates that word - this morning when I told him I thought it was gik.

I'm not a massive Scorsese fan myself but I felt like this was the film I'd always been waiting for him to make. Certainly one of the best of the year.

But what if Jimmy Hoffa wore spandex? You didn’t think it could be improved well there you go. #TeamMarty

Long long long running time aside, I fucking loved seeing Pesci again. I want a new Home Alone and My Cousin Vinny sequel next please Joe.

I thought The Irishman was tremendous! It brilliantly wrote, the acting was great and some of the direction and cinematography was amazing. I've always been a huge fan of Scorses, but when I saw the running time I was worried it would be a slog. But no, I was hooked from the first minute to the last and I'm sure it will become a film I watch fairly regular.

Only thing I didn't like was the de-aging stuff. It looked great, but I'm convinced that as long as your brain knows that someone has been de-aged or recreated in CGI then it makes the effects stand out like a sore thumb. Well, it does to me anyway...

I quite enjoyed Knives Out despite it getting a bit boring in the middle and some awful voice over dubs. 
There was some very obvious foreshadowing early on and some ridiculously unbelievable plot devices but it looked brilliant with some lovely shots and a few great jokes thrown in too. 
 

Daniel Craig should bin off Bond and reboot Columbo.

Fuck that, Craig will want to include some emo backstory as to how he lost his eye in the accident that killed his dad, it's then revealed that his dad died wearing a certain raincoat.

Sounds great

I wanna see him doing either a comedy Nazi or goofball redneck again. Maybe as Vinnies goofball redneck cousin in the mooted (by me) My Cousin Vinny sequel/reboot.

There's a complete disconnect with the comic timing and sense of humour he shows in Knives Out and Logan Lucky against his almost total refusal to put the odd joke in his Bond films.

There's really nothing in Frozen 2 to have justified the number of grown adults unaccompanied by kids in the screening I was just in. Disney just never bothered to get better, did it.
