Saw The Last Jedi tonight. I enjoyed it but not as much as Rogue One. Daughter loved it – it’s interesting to see a new generation claim their own versions of Star Wars.
Poster from the Guillermo del Toro exhibition I visited in Toronto
With the marathon tomorrow I had a relaxing day today, getting some sleep in & went to this cinema (with giant Shelton poster) to see Bladerunner
Went to see Sofia Coppola’s remake of The Beguiled tonight: lots of smouldering looks & southern gothic scenery.
Watched a Nina Simone documentary and played an album of hers this evening.
Saw this tonight & I won’t do a film review here, but definitely worth seeing on the big screen.
Went to see War for the Planet of the Apes tonight. I do like the Apes movies – it’s the best trilogy around
I watched this film the other night – it’s amazing, and has a cool soundtrack by Quincy Jones. So I picked up a cheap copy on eBay
Went to see Korean film The Handmaiden tonight. As with all Chan Wook Park films it was by turns beautiful, strange, disturbing and erm, a little rude.
Today was St David’s day and there were some special screenings of the documentary about Wales Euro championship adventure last summer. My daughter and I went to one and the film’s director and Chris Coleman were there to introduce it.
It was a lovely film that caught the joyful atmosphere about the team. It’s also an odd experience to sit in a cinema and see a film about your last summer. I couldn’t spot us in the fan zone or homecoming footage though. It’s a nice capture of a particular moment, one I can show the grandchildren one day…
