  1. Couldn’t agree more. I gave up reading The Order a couple of years ago, I just skip it. As Much as I still love 2000ad, confusing strips seem to be a common problem these days, even with Mills. Abnett always stands out for me, as his storytelling is always clear whilst also being ambitious and imaginative.
  2. He didn’t do that many before he died unfortunately. Paprika is his other masterpiece. Tokyo Godfathers is good, but I tend to watch it around Christmas, as it’s one of the few Christmas films I like. He also did Millennium Actress, which I haven’t seen, but plan to this weekend.
  3. Perfect Blue 5/5 Rewatched this for the first time in quite a few years, as the excellent Ghibliotheque podcast are doing a run of shows about the films of Satoshi Kon starting with this. Definitely up there with my favourite anime films of all time. Its on YouTube at the moment for anyone interested.
  4. Listened to the first three chapters. It’s excellent. Was a bit worried about how this would translate to an audio medium, but within minutes I was completely transported into the world of dreams.
  5. Does it matter which one you watch first out of Indy and emcc?
  6. My wife decided that she now likes sporting documentaries, which is great as I’ve been rewatching some of my faves with her. I’ve never seen Last Chance U, but thought it would be good for us to watch together as we both loved Friday Night Lights, but Netflix only seem to have a couple of the later seasons on there. Are these still good, and worth checking out? Or can anyone recommend something similar?
  7. I re subscribed to watch Hamilton, after leaving the service a couple of months ago having quickly run out of things I wanted to watch, but struggle to see any reason to carry on with the subscription. They really need to up their game when it comes to adding content.
  8. I saw that production back when it was on, and it was great. The best version of Company for my money Though is the Raúl Esparza one, which can also be found on YouTube. It’s just fantastic. It’s indeed a real shame that more live recordings aren’t made available. The National’s version of Follies from the other year was spectacular, and filmed for cinema showing, but never made available online which is such a shame.
  9. Really liking The Out so far. Abnett and Harrison are fantastic together, so it’s great to see them do something new.

  11. Really underwhelmed with Hamilton. It’s definitely at its best in the smaller numbers, and when the hip hop influence is more telling, but a lot of it feels very by the numbers musical. And I found the staging and choreography pretty weak throughout. The performances are great though, and there are definitely some good songs in there. But I guess it’s a pretty impossible hype to live up to, and obviously I’m in the minority with my opinions on this.
  12. A Hidden Life 3.5/5 I haven’t seen much Malick, but this one took my fancy so thought I’d give it a go. I’m really not one to complain about film lengths (in fact I often find that criticism tedious), but this is a three hour film, and there is definitely a two hour five star film hiding in there. Some great bits, but it meanders like hell. Rented this in 4K on iTunes, and it’s eye blisteringly beautiful.
  13. I thought this was exceptional. The two leads were just fantastic, and surely will have good careers off the back of this. Reluctantly came to this late, as really didn’t think it would be my cup of tea. I was very wrong. Me and my wife ended up binging it all over three days.
  14. Hoop Dreams 5/5 Hadn’t watched this since it’s original cinema release, and couldn’t really remember much about it. But god knows how I forgot, as its simply fantastic. Surely the greatest sporting documentary film of all time. And a sadly still all too relevant examination of race divide in America. Currently on MUBI for anyone interested.
