We have Chariots of Fire on.

I think fboab is swotting up on English society, post Brexit.

Ohdog.  We're not going to have to do Running, are we?

Only if you went to Cambridge.

I dodged that bullet by about two and a half A-levels.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

And I was much too thick and working class. Bullets dodged, eh?

London Fields.  Notorious (disowned by many of the participants and almost never saw the light of day) adaptation of my favourite book.  Actually not a bad effort, with very good casting*.  I can see how it would be a very hard sell to anyone who hadn't read the book.

Loses all the beauty of the original prose but that's the same for any film of a book.

*cameos by Bobby George and Andy Fordham in the darts final!

I have read the book1 and thus no power on Earth could interest me in the film.

David Copperfield.

Brilliant cast (especially Peter Capaldi and Anthony Welsh) and great Norfolk/Suffolk scenery.

The first two eps of Netflix's documentary series Pandemic.  Haven't learnt anything new so far, but haven't noticed any mistakes either. It's a bit over-simplified, of course.

It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood. A surprise on several levels. "Mr Rogers knows my name! <faint>"

Manchester By The Sea. A well-produced and engaging film that is utterly unenjoyable and really didn't need to be made.

Not a lot to say about it really, but it was fun to watch.

Hunt For The Wilderpeople

(finally). Well worth the wait. A really lovely, quirky film. The sort of thing antipodeans (sometimes) do very well :)

I'm now convinced to watch Jojo Rabbit (same director), which is getting marmite reviews, but I think will be worth a shot.
