Mulholland Dr is the ideal exception to that rule. The plot's only slightly-below-the-surface incoherent so you only need to make a small leap to reach your own idea of what the fuck's going on. It made a lot more sense to me than Blue Velvet or blardy Beyond The Black Rainbow. Also, I'm a sucker for films that straddle several genres and throw in some quality comic relief. The first half originally being a proposed TV pilot makes for an interesting format too.

Fair enough but I'm kinda like don't make me do the fuckin work, Dave. Story-telling is the director's job, I don't want to still be trying to figure out their wank once the credits have are rolling.

Ip Man Legacy - fantastic fight scenes with Tony Jaa, Michelle Yeoh and Dave Bautista.

Bumblebee - probably the first Transformers movie which get the transformation right on film.

Alita: Battle Angel
This film appropriately transform manga to film. The art direction and visuals are stunning, and the characters are well-developed. The actors/voices are great. But the story seems somewhat forced at times. Overall, this is very likeable.

Recently watched one million movies and tv shows on Singapore airlines flying to europe and back here were my highlights (in order)

1. Green Book (a little bit cliche and cheesy but still a touching tale.
2. Capote (really addictive watch, will read book asap)
3. The old man and the gun (almost fell inlove with the charming clepto myself)
4. No activity (hilarious aussie tv show)
5. 15 shorts ( 15 short films from Singapore, true stories , pretty dark shit but good watch)

I also watched an embarrassing drama series i will never disclose (disclose is a shit bans) and the Great Gatsby which is a rather bizarre pile of shit .

I also watched the entirety of After Life with Ricky Gervais when i was recovering from jetlag yesterday. I usually find ricky painful after two episodes, but this show was quite amusing.

I watched Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I liked the slow burning part of it but Tarantino's 'alternate history' irks me. It's as if his thing now is just lifting scenarios from the past and bashing adolescent fantasies into them. I found the ending jarring and difficult to process because it deviates so suddenly.

It was a bit slow but I started to appreciate slow films at some point. Eg. I was surprised I found something to like about Sunshine State, which isn't 3 hours long but sure feels like it. :baton: Although something wrong's when I was checking the time 2 hours into a movie like The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, wondering when something's going to happen. And I didn't like Beyond the Black Rainbow as it's slow but under 2 hours. meaning bugger all happens.

Just watched The Wild One, classic as fuck and pretty funny.

Save Me - great British drama about a South London guy who couch surfs and womanises, and is accused of kidnapping the daughter he hasn't seen in 10 years. Lennie James (might know him from Snatch, and The Walking Dead series) is brilliant and the supporting cast are excellent too.
