Other Movies seen, but at home - Other Movies
20.01.21 - Reduced shows due to a second wave of virus.
26.02.21 : Boss Level - movie
Action, Mystery, Sci-Fi : A retired special forces officer is trapped in a never ending time loop on the day of his death. It doesn't seam possible to make a bad "stuck in a time loop" film, because this one is also good. It's not as funny as Groundhog Day(1993), but it is funnier than Edge of Tomorrow(2014), either way it was fun. 3.75
24.02.21 : A Likely Story : Giant Dwarf Theatre
It was nice on Zoom so I thought it would be better being there, but it ended up being too much effort for such a small reward. When a show is mild the convenience of not having to drive for 1hr, wait around at the start and intermission, and drive 1hr back, makes you more accepting of light laughs because you haven't got as much invested in it. Basically you expect more when you've gone to so much effort.
Host Concetta Caristo
Kevin Jin - Nerd trying to find a girlfriend.
Jacqui Bramwell - 26, and finding out a one night stand is 19 years old.
Phil Spencer - Rhyming poem
Janek Gonsalkorale - Him and a girl go to Ibiza to lose their nerdyness, only for the girl to have sex when he is in the same tent.
Lauren Bonner - Getting robed and hiding horrible but expensive bed sheets from the police due to embarrassment.
Crowd : 3 - Me : 3
19.02.21 : Love, Weddings & Other Disasters - movie
Comedy, Romance : It is a multi-story romantic comedy about the people who work on weddings to create the perfect day for a loving couple - while their own relationships are outlandish, odd, crazy and far from perfect. I thought it was going to be old people being dull but nice, but it mainly young people and fun. Maybe simple, and maybe a bit contrived, but still very nice to watch. 3.5
17.02.21 : Long Story Short - movie
Comedy, Romance : Teddy , who wakes up the morning after his wedding to discover that every few minutes he's jumping forward to the next year of his life. In Groundhog Day(1993) the same day repeats, in this it jumps forward a year. It didn't start nice, but when you figure out why it's happening it gets nice. Not funny/fun like Groundhog Day(1993), more like the end of Click (2006) when the guy realises life has passed him by. It's intended to be light-hearted, and it kind-of is, but it's more real life than funny. 3.5
16.02.21 : Giggle Pig Comedy : Giant Dwarf Theatre
Host : Rowan Thambar, Michelle Azevedo, Sam Campbell, Fiona Cox, Dan Rath, Concetta Caristo
It was half a crowd, but it was still nice. Crowd : 3 - Me : 3.5
16.02.21 : Detective Chinatown 3 - movie
Action, Adventure, Comedy : A murder in a closed room has the detectives batting it out to find the perpetrator. DC2 was funnier but more disjointed - they added a lot of weirdly linked slap-stick skits -, where as this was more logical but harder to follow because there wasn't enough time to read the subtitles - the sub are only up for as long as it takes to say the line, but the translation is a lot longer so you miss a lot of it -. It's ok 3
12.02.21 : Synchronic - movie
Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi : Two New Orleans paramedics' lives are ripped apart after they encounter a series of horrific deaths linked to a designer drug with bizarre, otherworldly effects. It has a dark, moody, trippy feel, with SciFi concepts that are explained - unlike Tenet -. If this movie had a big budget it would've been a seriously big film, but even as it is it's still very good/interesting. 4
10.02.21 : A Rational Fear: 100th Episode : GD live-stream
My heart wasn't in it. I had 2 shows cancelled so I transferred to this because there was nothing else, but then a better show came along on the same day and I was thinking about skipping this one for that one - this is what I should've done -. I black-ban the news because I find it distressing, like the way the white far right spread their BS to profit themselves and not the people. Ironically all their BS is losing because everything they campaign against is slowly taking over, ie, renewable's, electric cars, climate change, etc, because it's profitable and is what the majority want anyway. I also had trouble hearing parts, even with the volume turned up. NA
05.02.21 : The Marksman - movie
Action, Thriller : A rancher on the Arizona border becomes the unlikely defender of a young Mexican boy desperately fleeing the cartel assassins who've pursued him into the U.S. Slow moving and using the well worn-out "Running from the Cartel" story. Basically it's a $14 time-filler than anything interesting. 2.5
04.02.21 : Pixie - movie
Comedy, Crime, Thriller : Pixie masterminds a heist but must flee across Ireland from gangsters with two unlikely lads. One reviewer said it was Tarantino-esq, but it's not, it's stylised violence, not boring Tarantino gross sadistic violence. It starts off kind-of cool and stylish, ie, fun/interesting, but half way it got a bit dull. It picks up again at the end, so it becomes interesting again. It's ok. 3.25
29.01.21 : Occupation: Rainfall - movie
Action, SciFi : Two years into an intergalactic invasion of earth, survivors in Sydney Australia fight back in a desperate ground war. It's an Australian version of a big SciFi action movie. It's nearly all action except for a small comedy section at the end, which is weird because this meant to be a serious(Australian serious) type file. Even though it wasn't the greatest story the action covered it up, but when it said it was chapter 1 at the end I reflected back that it was more action time filler than story, ie, it might not have enough story for another. Quite decent. 3.5
22.01.21 : Wonder Woman 1984 - movie
Action, Adventure, Fantasy : Diana must contend with a man, whose desire for extreme wealth sends the world down a path of destruction. I remember the other films being better, because this is kind-of corny-ish, ie, like a big budget version of the old TV show. I didn't hate it, it's just that I would've preferred something more interesting. Ok 3
21.01.21 : Dragon Rider - movie
Animation, Adventure, Family : A young silver dragon teams up with a mountain spirit and an orphaned boy on a journey through the Himalayas in search for the Rim of Heaven. I usually don't do animation - it's usually too simplistic for adults -, but I thought this was a How to Train Your Dragon franchise because the characters on the poster looked similar. It's probably a decent story, but either I was disappointed it wasn't HtTYD, or it just wasn't magical like HtTYD, because for the first half I was yawning a lot. In the second half I got used to it and it was interesting enough that it was ok. Not too dumb, ie, simplistic, for adults. 2.75
20.01.21 : The Buddy Games - movie
Comedy : A group of friends reunite to play The Buddy Games. With d!ck jokes and guys roasting each other you would think it would be fun, but there just wasn't anything to laugh at. I didn't hate it, more that I was disappointed that there was nothing to do with only 3 laughs in 90 min. 2
20.01.21 : Promising Young Woman - movie
Crime, Drama, Thriller : A young woman traumatised by a tragic event in her past seeks out vengeance against those who crossed her path. I did a 5 sec search and it said comedy, so I didn't think twice. Well it wasn't a comedy, but more a sad movie due to it depicting the way vulnerable women are taken advantage of. It's not a killing revenge movie, but a clever psychological revenge movie. Not what I would go for, but it was actually quite interesting/good. 3.5
20.01.21 : Monster Hunter - movie
Action, Adventure, Fantasy : When Lt. Artemis and her loyal soldiers are transported to a new world, they engage in a desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers. Feature film based on the video game by Capcom. I didn't know this was a video game, so it seamed a bit weird going from normal to crazy fantasy dungeons and dragons and monsters. It starts slow-ish because the situation seams hopeless, but by a 1/3 it gets quite ok. 3.5
