Patty, where did it all go wrong? From the muddled theme and story to the wasting of Barbara Minerva, Steve Trevor and the 80s. My take on WW84 – a swing and a miss.
From Da 5 Bloods to Queen & Slim and Mangrove, here’s my top films from last year. What were yours?
Ok, normally I’d write a ‘best of’ roundup at the end of year or perhaps in January. But it’s now April and I’m only just getting around to it. I’ve been busy, and pandemic life gets in the way, to misquote Jurassic Park. But back to the matter at hand. What did I watch last… Continue reading My top tv shows of 2020

French actors to watch in 2021… who’s on your list? For me there’s a few I’ve seen of late which I think are cool. They all seem to be in upcoming sci-fi, too.

I recently rewatched the 2015 movie Focus, about con artists, and seeing it again I was struck by how truly electric Margot Robbie is on screen… here are some of my favourite performances of hers.
Happy Fat Tuesday! (or Shrove Tuesday, as some say.)
