TV's Mark Commode was somewhat scathing about the fictitious romantic sub-plot with the fictional RAF pilot, though.

Professor Larrington was afforded a sneak preview by the nice people of Netflix, which was not helped by her intertube connection repeatedly falling over at crucial points in the story.

They're never happy unless they can scathe something. That bit did ring a bit false, though.

Watched Fight Club again the other day. Hadn't realised it was 20 years since I last saw it.  Originally I avoided it, because foolishly I assumed, being a Brad Pitt film, that it was going to be shite, and I remember watching it in stunned disbelief at how good it was. It was just as good watching it again two decades later.

Finally got around to watching Parasite. No doubt we missed a lot of cultural subtleties and references, and the tone was a bit uneven, but enjoyable none the less.

Seven Days in May, a 1964 film about an attempted military coup in the US. Apparently JFK read the book in 1962 and pushed for it to be filmed. It's OK in a 1964-ish way.

If you liked it try Oldboy. Not the remake but the 2003 version

Tenet

Half-way through. So far so good, but the dialogue is fast, every sentence is crucial and the sound is shit.

EDIT: Finished. That was great :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Hunter Killer

Far-fetched nonsense, about as realistic as Star Wars.  I enjoyed it.

Stump the Guesser

A marvellous 20 minute short that looks like a mixture of early Soviet cinema, Jeunet and Caro, and Eraserhead. Cinema of the absurd. Loved it.

It's on MUBI, if you want to watch it. MUBI is a streaming service for arthouse cinema as well as some mainstream stuff.

It reminded me very much of City of Lost Children (which, if you haven't seen it is superb)

2012.  MrsT had never seen it. I warned her that it was a load of bollocks, and afterwards she agreed.
