Yous laugh but I've been stuck in the cinema since 2011 as there was absolutely no way of telling whether the Tree Of Life had ended.

My TV's been on HBO ever since the cable went out during The Sopranos.

I've noticed the amount of smoking in films and TV seems to have increased. Anything set in the past, they seem to have everyone lighting up as if to prove it's the past. Maybe a lot more people smoked in the past but would anyone even notice if there was no smoking in these films and TV? Examples off the top of my head are 'Peaky Blinders', 'True Detective' season 3 and pretty much any film set in the past. I wouldn't be surprised if it came out that cigarette companies were paying the film makers (which isn't allowed).

They are. It's not secret. They're just not "paying for advertisment", sneaky loophole that I absolutely love.

Well I know Cillian Murphy smokes herbal cigarettes in 'Peaky Blinders' as I read an article which mentioned it. He's a non smoker.

I find it really jarring and obvious when these characters go through the cigarette lighting and smoking routine (often chainsmoking). There's no narrative need for it. If someone watches film/TV I doubt anyone would question the authenticity of a time period it's set in because everyone isn't smoking.

The last 2 plays I've been to have both had actors smoking on stage after not seeing it for a while. Love that they give a warning before the play starts.

There's no narrative need for most elements of a set or costume or anything that places you at a certain time/era, but it's all there to set the scene. People like things like that, I definitely do.

I saw Us three nights ago and I still don’t know if it was any good. The family didn’t seem to be that creeped out by the fact they’re being chased by people with the exact same face as them. Great use of 5 on it though.

Everyone smoking in period pieces is bollocks though. Not everyone did smoke. Actual films made in the 1970s don't have every character smoking. Off the top of my head I don't recall any smoking in the Dirty Harry films. If they made a film now set in the 1970s they'd have everyone smoking. There's no smoking in the Indiana Jones films. They're set in the 1930s and 1940s. My point was the smoking in modern TV/films is unnecessary (apart from getting funding from cigarette firms) and they seem to glamourise it by having the main characters spend time going through the whole light up and 'enjoy' process.

The only reason for it. I remember when I was a hard lad (3 lighters a day), they were trying to ban smoking in films and on TV, and I opposed it, on artistic grounds. f***ing mental. I also thought banning it in public was a bad idea.

The Girl in the Spider's Web managed to sneak out without much noise last year. It's a bit of a mess really. 4th one of the series (the first not based on a Stieg Larsson book) and completely recast a 3rd time.

It's got some names in it (Claire Foy, LaKeith Stanfield and Stephen Merchant) and just feels so disconnected from the others. It's essentially just turned into a female Jason Bourne/James Bond film. There's a bit where Lisbeth has been drugged and beaten a minute earlier yet manages to get into a car, drive at high speed, off road, while holding a phone and in 2 taps on the screen it brings up a security camera video, rewinds, zooms in on a number plate, looks up the plate then tracks it in real time using traffic cameras for her. The whole thing is littered with insanely convenient technology and geography. The ending just takes the p*ss too.

Anyone who's a fan of the Dragon Tattoo stuff should avoid this.

Us.

Nowhere near as good as 'Get Out'. Daft movie that made little sense at times, had a few OK'ish bits and well acted I suppose, but still meh. Peele trying way too hard with the "lets take an analogy and make a psychological horror out of it" spiel. 3.5/10

Shazam!

Thoughts:
 1. It was actually a really good movie.
 2. Zachary Levi was great.
 3. I hope it gets a sequel.

It was also easily the best DCEU movie so far IMO.

Pulp Fiction with girl 2.

The Male rape scene was a little more hard to explain than I was expecting.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Aye, watched that. He's clearly suicidal though. He's no interest in stopping, which means he will die eventually.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
