A confession. Tuesday night I was flicking through DSTV channels (I know; gasp!), and I came across Star Trek: the motion picture. I think I saw it on its original release with my family at the Goodwood drive-in. Yes, you can tell my age here.

I tuned in just to see how funny it was now in terms of graphics etc for a few minutes.

I ended up watching the whole thing. Totally enjoyed it. Remember now why I had some wet dreams about a bald girl in a short white tunic later on in life. Also remembered, what I thought at the time, was amazing footage of plasma balls being shot at the Enterprise.

I know I will be flamed, but for me it was somehow awesome.

Also seeing the hairy chest of a few of the characters, and then the hairy sidearms of Captain Kirk. Totally funny compared to what you see of the manicured stars these days.

Fatman (2020) 6.5/10

Slightly above average black comedy action. Story itself has potential but the follow through is on the mediocre side. Always a fan at seeing Mel Gibson though.

Great performance by Kiera Allen. Holds her own well against Sarah Paulson in her first feature movie.
Quite a tense little thriller.

FYI. She actually uses a wheelchair in real life.

Fatman (2020) 5/10.
Decent cast with a pointless story, a lacklustre plot and underwhelming direction. Completely forgettable.

iBoy (2017) - crime/ sci-fi - 7/10
Watchable scifi on Netflix, if you can look past the premise of the movie.

Haha. Now that it a different "Christmas movie?
The story should be ridiculous, but they take it so seriously that it actually works.
Loved Walter Goggins in this :ROFL:

So I happened to watch the trailer now only. This is why I hate trailers. Don't watch the trailer before hand and the movie will have a much bigger impact. The trailer gives away one if the best lines.

The half of it (2020) 8/10.

From Rotten tomatoes - Critics Consensus -
"For viewers in search of an uncommonly smart, tender, and funny coming-of-age story, The Half of It has everything."

I was watching Vertigo on Saturday night and fell asleep after an hour or so. Tried to watch the rest on Sunday and it's been removed from Netflix.

The Pianist (2002) - 9/10. One of the hardest things I've had to sit through which exemplifies it's brilliance - uncompromising in its realism, the suffering can actually be felt.

I've watched this movie 4 times. Better than Schindler's List for me.

Next you should watch: "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas"...
