High School - 10/10 My kind of documentaries.
If you like them schoolgirls, then watch Sharon Lockhart's Goshogaoka. It's literally an hour of Japanese schoolgirls during PE lesson.

I love films. I want to watch everything, but there's so much. There's too much. I can't fathom how I am supposed to watch them all. I know I will never see everything, but I decided to put on a brave face and naively pretend I will. I will see everything. I will watch them all.

Is the cinema more important than life?

Darkest Hour (2017)

Very disappointing for me. Maybe I expected to much. Or maybe it's Churchill burnout...I mean we've had 3 Winston Churchill features: Darkest Hour (2017), Churchill (2017) and The Crown (2016)...I've watched all of those and a kettle full of other Churchill documentaries and in my mind Gary Oldman didn't quite invibe the character of Churchill. He didn't really look much like him either. So he didn't work for me. Maybe if I hadn't seen John Lithgow knock it out of the ballpark with his performance of Churchill in The Crown, I might have like Oldman better in this.

But even if Lithgow had reprised his role in this movie, the script itself isn't that interesting and Churchill is made to seem like a old fuddy duddy. Which I guess is popular as that's the way he was portrayed in Churchill (2017). I sort of hated the way the director choose to spoon feed us emotions by cutting to close ups of what he wanted us to focus on. I'm thinking of the handkerchief scene for one example. Ahhh...that just smacked of formulated film making.

The cinematographer was kinda lameo too. It was too self conscious and tried way to hard to impress with a bunch of fancy stuff that smacked of style over substances. I take that back, the cinematography wasn't overly stylish, it was more of the flavor of the week variety.

Hard to believe this very average film was nominate for an Oscar.

Tragedy Girls is one of the most thought provoking films of all time. A touching story of a pair of friends trying to maneuver their way through high school while being tormented by a mysterious killer. The movie touches on themes of isolation, commercialism, the failing of our education system and race....


nah just kidding it's a slasher about a pair of millennial's who want to be famous. Basically it's mix of Scream and Scream 4 with the Billy and Stu roles being played by (shocker) girls. It stars two of the minor actors from the X-men movies...Storm and Negasonic Teenage Warhead



Who manage to have pretty good chemistry, as the story takes a couple good turns. The movie doesn't go overboard with the jokes, but it also doesn't switch it's tone which I appreciated. It does suffer a bit when it comes to casting...it's got a distinct 90210 vibe with 30 year old High School students.

I'm definitely making a note of Tyler MacIntyre after this one

A disappointing day of films:

The Lego Ninjago Movie

Not funny, doesn't make use of the lego concept really, and not very much like Ninjago either. This is just like the bad dad plot strand from Lego Batman for the whole movie, it's all about Lloyd and his absent (evil) father. The other ninjas are just there in the background. Same names and colours as the TV series but seem to have completely different characters (not that they have much character at all). The animation isn't as clear either. Disappointing.



The Death of Stalin

A dark comedy about scheming amongst Russian politicians after Stalin dies suddenly. But it's really dark, surprisingly nasty actually, and not very funny. Good acting from pretty much everyone involved, Simon Russell Beale is convincingly repulsive as Beria and I liked Jason Isaacs, but overall I didn't enjoy it much. I think political satire works better around small things (see The Thick of It) rather than mass murder and rape. There are good bits in it, I liked, ďI know the drill. Smile, shake hands and try not to call them c***s." Everyone else seems to like it (apart from actual Russians) so perhaps I'm just being churlish, or it's something that will grow on me afterwards.

I know what you are talking about

It was really bad. Thankfully, I was exhausted on friday evening, when this movie was on tv, that I could only blink my eyes.
