Take car. Go to Mum's. Kill Phil - "Sorry." - grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over.

    The Tomorrow War

    ★★½

    The dialogue was gloriously bad and it relied so heavily on exposition it felt like it was being explained to me by an overeager kid. The CGI aliens and sound were fantastic with some pretty solid action sequences. Chris Pratt was more devoid of charm than I've ever seen him, but luckily Sam Richardson provided an engaging performance. Time travel movies are tough to make sense, and it looks like with this one they didn't even attempt to have any problems or solutions make any sense at all. But was I reasonably entertained for two hours? Meh, I guess

    When I was younger Stephen King books and movies scared the shit out of me. Now they scratch a pleasant nostalgic itch and even though scary things are part of it, it’s more revisiting the familiar world King has created and the comfort that brings. Doctor Sleep knows exactly what it’s supposed to be, respecting all Stephen King tropes and settings and characters. I appreciate that!

    I go into any Adam Sandler movie with a cringe already started, but this one still makes me laugh. It’s dumb, makes no sense and was clearly written by people who have no idea about parenting, jobs or how the foster and court system work. But as long as you ignore how stupid everything is in this, it’s still entertaining. Joey Lauren Adams and Leslie Mann were the epitome of 90s adorable. Hi little Sprouse twins!

    Christopher Guest is brilliant at crafting  characters and scenarios, then pointing his talented cast I. The right direction and trusting them to deliver. Best in Show is my favourite Guest work because it’s the funniest and is emotional comfort food. I will never get tired of Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy and Fred Willard absolutely going for it. All the characters are absurd, unique and yet somehow incredibly real and familiar. Can anyone do tightly wound as well as Parker Posey?
