    Another thanks for the podcast suggestion - downloading a bunch of them ready for hols! Oh, and I saw RD at the cinema as well... :-)
    This week's Rewatchables is another Netflix available film Gone Girl.

    As is customary they enjoyed the film (not to Con Air levels) but it's another great take on an excellent film.

      I bought one of those Odeon limitless memberships. What a waste of money, only about one film every three months I want to see. Might be good value for some but if you’re not into animated kids films or endless superhero nerd fodder, forget it. And it’s a year contract with The Harlands group, so absolutely no way to cancel it.
      My own fault, it’s the ****ing odeon, of course it only shows crap. And none of the event cinema showings are included, like the National Theatre Live showings.
      Bollocks.
      I feel your pain. Though I'm lucky that my next nearest is a Picturehouse one; just a drag that Odeon have decided to be the cinematic purveyor equivalent of Channel 5.

      Watched Last Breath tonight (Netflix), about (and I hadn't heard the story before) the deep sea diver in the North Sea (the people who go down to the sea floor to fix oil rig equipment.) I say no more as it's an excellent British documentary and well worth 90mins of your time. Reminded me a bit of Free Solo, but only in the way that it's set in a totally alien and genuinely frightening environment. You will get something in your eye.

      I watched the new Shaft on Netflix last night. Very funny with some cracking one liners. A little over the top on some scenes but well worth watching. Very enjoyable.

      This unseasonally shite weather would appear to be nature's way of telling one to attend a matinee showing of the new Tarantino
      well the weather's shite again and the new Tarantino film seems to be the ONLY film on EVERYWHERE.

      I'm tempted, but the whole Cieleo Drive (excuse spelling), Sharon Tate, Manson stuff doesn't sit well with me ... especially if reduced to ridicule.

      I'm hoping to get along to it this weekend, been very much looking forward to it as I've always been a huge Taratino fan. The running time is 161 minutes, so a pre-pub drinkies is probably unwise.

      Incidentally, this will be his 9th movie, and he has stated that he will retire from directing after he's done 10. He then said that if this does really well, he may even quit after this one and "go out on a high". Could all be bluster and bollocks of course, but it'll be a sad day when he does hang up his clapperboard. We are in an age now where cinema is DOMINATED by endless Marvel superhero movies, their neverending sequels and spin-offs, as well as remake after remake after remake of old movies. There's so little thats original any more, so much is just generic.

      Whether you like his movies or not, Tarantino at least always brought something fresh to the screen, with vivid characters and genuinely memorable, endlessly quotable writing. If this is to be his swansong, I hope its one worthy of his brilliant portfolio.

      Saw the Tarantino film today, overlong, self indulgent, some good dialogue as always but probably his worst film to date imo.

      I am in partial disagreement with you. Not because i thought it was a great film, but because, whilst how you describe it makes it a standard Tarantino flick, i didn't feel bludgeoned by its hope to outrage. The film didn't hugely fit and his inability to create human characteristics or emotion was as always, but it spoke of what he knew of and i preferred it to his usual stylistic bluster. A few good scenes, of very little meaning, and a couple of good bits of pounding violence. Not too bad. Acting wise, Pitt struggles a bit when clothed, whilst Dicaprio seems a little trapped in a loop, but still has his moments. And there we have it.

      It would be nice to see Dicaprio in a truly great film. He's not delivered anything that impressive for some time.

      I saw it today, too. I generally thought it was quite dull, not even sure I'd say there was much good dialogue. But I did, like Meade, notice it didn't seem to be doing the usual Tarantino trick of swearing and throwing the N-word around with abandon as if to court anger (though I did roll my eyes somewhat at the ott violence against the trio at the end). Even the Bruce Lee thing that's been in the news recently felt overblown - seemed to be a fantasy sequence rather than an effort to say it actually went down like that.


      I then saw The Lion King. For most of it I was thinking 'what's the point?'. It didn't really do anything new, instead of having emotive cartoon animals, we got photo-realistic and expressionless cg animals, making it harder to really connect. They didn't ruin the music, so there was that positive.

      The Lion King is a remake of the animated film. It is not mean't to be different. Some people seem to find this hard to grasp which baffles me as I have heard several others say the same. It would be like re making the great escape but in a butlins holiday camp to make it a bit diffferent
