  • An American Pickle (2020) From IMDb: "An immigrant worker at a pickle factory is accidentally preserved for 100 years and wakes up in modern day Brooklyn." What's so annoying is that there is a really interesting idea in here, the sort of pre and …
  • Amy. 30. UK. Been messing around on here since 2015. Came for Breaking Good, stayed for the rest! You'll mostly find me on the movie threads, but I DO be lurking. 
  • Am I trippin’ or was this kind of awesome? Some cringe dialogue but honestly Charlize can punch me in the face anytime she wants.
  • Proxima (2019) From IMDb: "An astronaut prepares for a one-year mission aboard the International Space Station." Proxima isn’t the kind of sci-fi or space exploration movie that is going to have in awe of the glory of the universe. It certainly do…
  • The Naya Rivera news is so sad. I was really into the first couple of seasons of Glee and she was always a scene stealer as Santana. The officials are saying that she and her son were in the water with the boat unanchored, and it started to drift a…
  • Also, Joanna Lumley in Absolutely Fabulous.
  • Bea Arthur in The Golden Girls was perfection. More recently, Catherine O’Hara in Schitt’s Creek and June Diane Raphael in Grace & Frankie.
  • Christened my Disney+ with Free Solo (2018). Fucking wild, I can't imagine what this might have felt like to watch on a big cinema or IMAX screen. The scale of those wide shots with him hanging off that rock made my stomach flip. Amazing physical a…
  • Fanny Lye Deliver'd (2019) From IMDb: "Set on an isolated farm in Shropshire in 1657. The story of Fanny Lye, a woman who learns to transcend her oppressive marriage and discover a new world of possibility - albeit at great personal cost. Living a …
  • Resistance (2020) From IMDb: "The story of a group of Jewish Boy Scouts who worked with the French Resistance to save the lives of ten thousand orphans during World War II." The IMDb description weirdly doesn't include the main focus of the film, …
  • I deleted my Facebook last year and have not regretted it for a single second. I can't even imagine what kind of a dumpster it must be in 2020, I'm glad I'm out of it! Twitter is a bit of an addiction for me, it's a great way to interact with sport…
  • FULL BODY CHILLS.
  • Have had the new Run The Jewels album on repeat for dayzzz.

  • Shirley (2020) From IMDb: "A famous horror writer finds inspiration for her next book after she and her husband take in a young couple." Knowing less than nothing about Shirley Jackson, this was a cool and creepy ride. There's more than a touch of…
  • The King Of Staten Island (2020) From IMDb: "Scott has been a case of arrested development since his firefighter dad died. He spends his days smoking weed and dreaming of being a tattoo artist until events force him to grapple with his grief and ta…
  • @Dee I too would love to post that comparison on Twitter if you don't mind! Striking and terrifying.
  • The High Note (2020) From IMDb: "A superstar singer and her overworked personal assistant are presented with a choice that could alter the course of their respective careers." Oh my godddd this movie is exactly my kind of guilty pleasure! It's che…

  • Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020) From IMDb: "A pair of teenage girls in rural Pennsylvania travel to New York City to seek out medical help after an unintended pregnancy." This is a tough watch, both for its deliberate slow and gruelling pace,…
  • Flukes said: Well, I will never know what today's Turnip price is. Why? Because it's been 30 days since Nook's Cranny was built on the fair island of Tilladega - which means the Cranny is closed today for renovations. Looks like I'll be hitt…
  • Keira Knightley once walked right into me on a street in central London, knocked my coffee out of my hand. Didn't say sorry. Also, Boris Becker in a Nando's in Oxford. 
  • Capone (2020) From IMDb: "The 47-year old Al Capone, after 10 years in prison, starts suffering from dementia and comes to be haunted by his violent past." This is a weird one. It's like all of the pieces are there, but nobody ever bothers to put …
  • Mine is kind of a wild mix! A mixture of being born in 1989 and being the exact right age for things like the Britney Spears and Eminem phenomenons to snatch me up, and then moving on to discover the kind of R&B, soul, and more rocky stuff that …
  • What was the challenge? I don’t have Facebook but can never resist a list thingy!
  • How To Build A Girl (2019) From IMDb: "The journey of Midlands teenager Johanna Morrigan, who reinvents herself as Dolly Wilde: fast-talking, lady sex-adventurer, moves to London, and gets a job as music critic in the hope of saving her poverty str…
  • Did some ducking and diving on Turnip Exchange today and came away with 11 million bells before the headache kicked in. 
  • X2 (2003) If you offered me one million pounds to tell you the plot of this instalment, I wouldn't be able to do it. I'm not the most versed or experienced when it comes to comic book/superhero stuff, but boy this felt completely impenetrable. All …
  • Fun fact, Beatrice Straight's Best Supporting Actress Oscar win for Network holds the record for shortest time on screen for a winning performance. Five minutes and two seconds!
  • X-Men (2000) Last year I watched all the Marvel movies in a row for the first time, so I thought why not knock off the X-Men movies while I'm at home. This was pretty rough lol. I appreciate a superhero/action movie that is under two hours so it h…
