@glitterbag,
Hey GB, look at the trailer for The Invisible Man 2020, and tell me what you think.

@snood,
Your little box has a number by it. It's normally a 1. If you get voted up or down it changes accordingly. Yours was on zero so someone had voted you down.

@izzythepush,
OK, thanks. I’m still not clear on why anyone should care about it?

I just watched Before I Wake Up with Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth. A very good movie. She loses all her memories every night. He’s her living, protective husband...
But all is not as it seems. It has a twist that really caught me by surprise. Good drama/thriller/mystery.

I dragged my feet, beginning to watch The Crown only a few weeks ago, and I sort of got hooked. Ugh. I loved it. Although I’ll miss the principal actors from the first two seasons, I’m embarrassingly excited to see Olivia Colman chew up the role.

The first time I saw her was in Peep Show, and I just loved her. I’ve tabled some big historical royalty films for a while now, but I’m planning to watch her and the story’s first or second episodes in an hour.

The episode featuring Charles taking his Welsh lessons from a Welsh separatist (I’m sure there’s a correct term and separatist isn’t it), even though it’s too beautiful to be accurate, was exquisite.

I’ve never liked Charles as I interpret him to be. I loved how he was portrayed in this episode—as an actor portraying Richard II and everything.

Makes me miss Wales.

The new and improved Season 3’s Lord Mountbatten (Game of Thrones fame) and Prince Philip (yes, please!) Eye candy for me.

@Lash,
The term normally used is nationalist.

I saw Ad Astra at the theater, it's pretty decent but not a masterpiece by far.

Watched the 1st episode of His Dark Material on TV, based on the novels by Philip Pullman. Found it cheap and disappointing, worse than the movie that came out a few years ago with Nicole Kidman (which was already not that great).

Yeah. It was a muddled mess. I was expecting a slow, introspective thoughtful character study. Looked nice. But still a muddled mess that will likely be overlooked (and should be) come Oscar season.

@Olivier5,
My son dragged me to Joker, too. It's okay, even mildly interesting. It's an origin story for a baddy, and as such it tries to explain "where evil comes from". The answer it proposes is: humiliation, injustice. Social violence begets social violence. Nothing terribly original but well done, and well acted.

@tsarstepan,
I agree the movie is not worthy of palms or awards because it's a bit all over the place. Still enjoyable when you like SciFi, as I do.

This six-time Tony Award-winning play relays the story of painter Mark Rothko as he creates murals for New York's Four Seasons restaurant; starring Alfred Molina and Alfred Enoch.

@coluber2001,
This is an excellent essay to read either before or after viewing the play,
Red.

Mark Rothko was an unknown abstract expressionist when he won a plum commission - to provide paintings for New York's swankiest restaurant. So why did he pull out and give them to the Tate? Jonathan Jones investigates
Jonathan Jones
Sat 7 Dec 2002

Mark Rothko was found on the morning of February 25 1970, lying dead in a wine-dark sea of his own blood. He had cut very deep into his arms at the elbow, and the pool emanating from him on the floor of his studio measured 8ft x 6ft. That is, it was on the scale of his paintings. It was, to borrow the art critical language of the time, a colour field.

Saw the American Masters (pbs) episode on Rothko. Molina seemed to do a great job portraying him.

@panzade,
Molina is really good. My favourite role is the part he played in Trust Me, about a compulsive liar. It was very funny.

Doctor Sleep

I almost missed it. I don't take notice of most movies.

But I took a look at what it was about when I saw that it had a decent score on Rotten Tomatoes, and I'm glad that I bothered to look.

I watched The Shining a couple days ago too. I have the European cut of the movie on Blu-ray.

Just watched Angel Has Fallen (prime video rental). Third in the series with terrorists vs Mike Bannon (Olympus and Londen ‘fell’ previously).

Great escapism flick - shootem up between good and evil.
