We saw Venom 2 at the weekend. Good fun. Kind of cartoonish humour, a little cringe at times but mostly good. I think if it was a lesser actor than Tom Hardy playing the lead role it might not be as good, he carries it well. And Woody Harrelson hamming it up as the villain is always good.

Oh, we also watched Star Trek again last night, it was on TV. Seen it before but didn't remember some parts of it (I've seen the second one a few times but this one only once before I think). It's great, I think they casted the new generation really well. I particularly enjoy Karl Urban as Bones.
Thought Venom 2 wasn’t as good as the first but Harrelson was excellent. Didn’t seem like there was much of a story then just a fight at the end.

Eternals. One of the poorer Marvel ones if I’m honest. Seemed to drag on at nearly 2 hours 40 minutes long.

@Lord Tyrion 10 other people in the screening with me and my daughter at 21:35 on opening night. Honestly, that Vue has to be losing so much money.
21.35 showing. Were you there in your PJ's? Fair play, I rarely go to a film starting past 7.30 😄.

I know what you mean, it rarely seems busy. Let's hope running costs are low, I'd hate to lose it.

Disappointing write up. We are down to go on Wednesday to see it. I'll make sure I have an extra large bag of sweets to see me through.

Doesn't surprise me.. the whole concept of them doesn't seem that interesting

Before the MCU people knew of hulk, cap, iron and Spiderman

How many had heard or liked the elementals?

More excited about Spiderman, then Dr strange than this

Nobody knows how to write a good NC-17 screenplay anymore.
Human civilization is obviously in rapid decline.

Remember when Brits had world renown actresses like Patsy Kensit?
I’m trying to remember the last good Yank actress?

Hollywood seems to rely on Brits and Aussies, like Olivia Coleman and Kate Blanchet.
Was Catherine Hepburn the last good Septic?

Together.

James McAvoy and Sharon Horgan as a couple who hate each other, trying to get through lockdown. Funny and moving in equal parts, very well written and two great performances. It's on the iPlayer.

I did fall asleep at one point and my daughter stuck her elbow into me to wake me up. In my defence I had been up since 4:30am and it was after midnight when I nodded off for a minute or two. Don't think I missed anything important. :)

Watched Bloodshot on Netflix, gash.

Infinite on Amazon. Absolutely garbage.

The big name actors in these films that the big streaming services are putting out, must be being paid week. I can’t remember any StS films being particularly good.

Army of Thieves, a prequel sort of to Army of the Dead. A reasonably enjoyable heist movie, not the worst way to spend a Saturday night.

This weekend is Disney Plus day so lining up watching Shang Chi and the Jungle Cruise this weekend and as I have nothing much planned, may download The Suicide Squad as well.

I saw both of these at the cinema. Both really good fun. Proper pocorn films.

Sounds perfect for a lazy weekend. Disney Plus has proved pretty good value and to put both of these out to celebrate their anniversary as the same time as they come out on DVD is pretty decent.
If you’ve not seen Mike & Dave need wedding dates,give it a watch.
