Got decent reviews on imdb at 5.9 currently. I am intrigued by this kind of stuff so sure I will find it entertaining.

When you compare it to the rolling stone article or the case file podcast it's bloody awful

The Silk Road story is one of the those things that is so much better suited to a documentary (e.g. Storyville one) than a Hollywood film. The source information is already amazing…it doesn't need extra sprinkles on top.

Godfather 1&2
What can I say, they're both absolute classics.


8 1/2
First Fellini I've seen, enjoyed it a lot more than I expected. It's very italian and melodramatic but it's also pretty funny and the scenery and direction is amazing. Gave up understanding what happened after the first hour and just enjoyed the ride.


Pickpocket (1959)
Was a decent watch but didn't do much for me. Some cool thieving scenes but the use of non-professional actors didn't do it any favours. Dragged on too long I thought which is something you don't want to say about an 80 minute movie.

Baby Driver. Can’t decide whether it was great or shite.

my way of judging a film is 'would i be happy to spend £15 to see it in the cinema' test

Thought baby driver was good. Something a bit different. And anything with Lily James in it is a winner for me.
