I just finished watching it
Keen to see how others feel about it

I’ve got a very strong take

Just finished End Game. What's the rule about spoilers on this thread?

Give it 3hrs and I can chime in.
Hmm, would it be worth having an Avengers thread to seperate the spoilers?
It’s moments like these we need a spoiler button

Good idea
When you get out and are ready, start a thread and let’s talk about it!

Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Just watched The Fortune Cookie, with Jack Lemon and Walter Matthau... a Billy Wilder film. I am not certain I've watched it in its entirety before. I might have watched it a long time ago. But what a great film it is. It was on Fox Classics... might still be available.

Nice NFL background for those who like that.

So, Robert Pattinson is the new Batman. Thoughts?

I watched Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile on Netflix today. Thought the leads were very good, but somehow too much was crammed into a couple of hours. I wonder what the people who make Amercian Crime Story might have done with the material. Watched the documentary series, Conversations with a killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes afterwards... and it was much better. The subject matter is horrific of course.

Just watched First Man. Ryan Gosling outstanding as he always is. The film probably wanted to be more important and impactful than it was. But it was brilliantly filmed. Enjoyed it.

I’m with you in the good film but not great film category. Great casting throughout.

Recorded "The Right Stuff" from Saturday night on Fox Classics... I've watched this film many times, the photography and music are perfect. It is one of those films you can watch over and over. One of my favourite moments ever in film is when the astronauts walk down a corridor in space suits, to the most rousing part of the score, as they determine that a man must now go up.

Just watched Icarus on Netflix. Really interesting documentary. 2 things amaze me about it

1. The fact the filmmaker just stumbles into one of the greatest doping scandals of all time

2. If Russia are willing to go to those lengths to win medals, what other levels of corruption are they involved in?

Kept the Netflix doco vibe going and watched “Behind the curve” which was a doco following around some Flat Earthers.
It was good. Definitely not what I was expecting. I walked away from it feeling for these people, it was less about believing the earth was flat, and more about a group of social outcasts creating a community where they’re accepted.

Watched Aquaman last night on Netflix. Is this the worst superhero movie of all time? I can't stand Spider-Man as a character but even his films have decent moments. Aquaman is just truly awful.

I've not seen it. Surely it can't be as big a balls up as Batman v Superman.
