I can just about understand why you like The Last Jedi - you mostly hate Star Wars, and so does The Last Jedi - but TordelBack rating it above IV and VI? Oh dear god...

Eeehhh as someone who didn't see the OG trilogy until his early 20's...gotta tell you Greg, IV is ROUGH at times.

...a film of almost painful beauty...

I'll agree with one word of this. And it's not 'film'.

I set 'em up...  :D

And J.J.Abrams lets us down.

It's funny because though I would never describe myself as a Star Wars fan, I do LOVE Empire and Last Jedi, and most of the tv shows too boot.

I just don't much care for the rest. "New Hope" and TFA are alright I guess in retrospect.

I'm gonna kick the hornets nest but, there are really only two actually good Star Wars movies.

Empire and Last Jedi.

The rest is just either mind numbing mid 2000's saturated CGI bollocks or horribly misguided pulp pap.

Star Wars is at it's best on the small screen, lets be honest.

The best thing that can be said about The Phantom Menace is that it isn't Attack Of The Clones.

I foresee a separate thread now arising, along the lines of: "This Week, I have mostly been drinking..."

I'll start, Jose Cuervo Especial Reposado.

Neat.

Well done Tordels, good to see some decency left in the world. Mortified to see two of my former employers among the scum jumping through hoops to keep their stores open. Makes me weep.

Uderzo was a complete genius, and a terrible loss to the global comic book community.

So. I might be going into quarantine.

My manager has been instructed to go into quarantine by HO, she lives with her sister who has been diagnosed with the virus. My last shift was a close with the manager on Wednesday.

I've no nowhere to go besides my family home with the grandparents, an at risk couple.

Honestly have no idea what i'm going to do. After the stress of the last few years this really isn't what I needed from 2020.

The Yakuza could and should be doubled up with The Friends of Eddie Coyle. Mitchum was one of the finest of a golden age and these two complement each other superbly.

Too Old to Die Young. An LA cop becomes an assassin. I can't decide whether this is awesome or shite. It's full of long tracking shots of nothing much, scenes of people doing ordinary things like sleeping or getting dressed or thinking, lingering shots of women in underwear and so on - interspersed with bloody violence. Still, I'm up to episode six(of ten), so it must be doing something right...

Entertaining exploitation is how I described it, which is generally what Refn is good at.
