Ip Man 4 - Whilst they are great films they seemed to be a bit formulaic,
Somebody hates his fighting style, FIGHT
Even if the resulting fisticuffs are great to watch
Also Bruce Lee bits...........
They better not make a 5th one

Thanks to Disney +, catching up on a load of nostalgic films and shorts I haven't seen for probably 30 years, namely:

Dumbo - quite spooky for some reason, and being old some of the cultural depictions are way off.
Who Framed Roger Roger Rabbit - still a great achievement technically, but Bob Hoskins' acting ability really seals the deal. And Judge Doom is still frightening
Get Out - found it a very satisfying film with plenty of food for thought behind the horror
Green Mile - cried buckets like you'd expect. I hadn't seen this for 10 years and I was shedding tears in the first 5 minutes. My girlfriend, who hadn't seen it, was wryly puzzled, but she understood by the end why I was blubbing away

Been on a "Vintage" anime binge, trying to watch all my DVD/VHS
Psychic wars - Pish, apart from when he punches a demon on the censored
Madox 01 - Pish appart from the opening bit and last battle
Vampire wars - "As im hunting vampires my code name shall be "Bat""

Proper films.
Gamer - What if COD used real people?

TV
Ashes to Ashes - Close to the end, bloody good

Disney used to not screw around when it came to cartoon films
Dumbo - He got pissed

Also Pinocchio - Be a good kid, or become a donkey

Compared to the SOD THE FILM BUY THE MERCH crud they put out these days that just dances round trying to freak kids out

Watched The Invisible Man the other night and enjoyed it, although it's not the deepest film I've ever seen. Also making my way through The Office (US) on Prime Video for the third time at the moment. Still the greatest sitcom ever made.

Been wanting to rewatch it, but the filler put me off, now this works out better.

Also Gen X cops.

Yeah, I've quite enjoyed the 3rd trilogy up until this one. I jest felt very underwhelmed when it finished and I can't put my finger on why?! It had so much going on but something was missing :(

Not so much a TV fan these days but found myself watching a lot of Vintage and Mechanical watch videos after looking up ways to customise my Casio Royale, me thinks I need a little project to learn repair/restoration on.

Managed to watch a few movies for a change they are:

MiB International- Not bad, definate sequel syndrome with it not being a patch on the first though and was kinda strange they didn't have J or K (even just impersonated) in 96 Brooklyn and the product placement was fairly evident.

Star Trek Beyond- Seen it several times but still really enjoyed it, Urban definately doing well on McCoy's one liners.

Howard the Duck- Was a way through, strange but funny

One of the Riddick movies aswell but only half paid attention to it, was the most recent one and was a bit meh compared to the others.
