Spider-man: Far From Home

Been described as a link film - tidying some loose ends after Endgame and setting up for the next story arc.

It does - what happened when people suddenly came back, some of the implications, and more importantly - what happened to the school records of those who disappeared (so unfair!). Then Spider-man has an adventure (and you realise the efforts the trailers went to to not spoil the film).

Two after credits - one purely Spider-man (ooh that's been in the comics!) - one appearing to set up for the next films ('those guys' and 'what's he doing there?')

We watched Aquaman last night. Enjoyable, but definitely didn't wow us like the Marvel movies. Some of the acting was pretty bad. Lots of action though!

Knives Out
Very enjoyable film.
The cast were excellent. Lots of laughs.
Took me a while to get used to Daniel Craig's accent.
Some nice twists.

Saw Jojo Rabbit with SO
Enjoyed it greatly; some laugh-out-loud funny and some sad ones. Four stars.

We watched Onward recently. It was very cute, we all enjoyed it.

I never watched ST:TNG (or DS9 or Voyager or Enterprise) when they came out so I'm catching up now, starting with ST:TNG.

Does anyone know - has the holodeck ever operated correctly? Why isn't there a big warning sign on the door?
This is my sort of recipe book. "Wrap the pastry in a damp cloth and chill for 20 minutes." Don't mind if I do.

the holodeck works as well as any other piece of human technology does on this "galazy class starhsip". Honestly with the propernsity for human "engineering" things to go worng and rip random holes in the fabric of the niverse, I'm amazed the vulcans allow them off planet at all.

Re-watched Red Dwarf: The Promised Land so Mate could see it. Even better the second time around. Really excellent Rimmsie story.

We're really enjoying The Mandalorian! And, on a friend's recommendation, I watched the first half of the first episode of The Boys. I only turned it off because I was tired, not because I didn't think it was good. Really interesting premise! Turns the whole superhero thing on it's head. I don't know if I can keep watching it though because it's stressful. Not really interested in stressful these days.

Just watched the Goes Wrong Show. Bloody hilarious. If you haven't seen it, you should give it a go.

From tomorrow until New Years eve, Mischief Theatre (the group being the Goes Wrong show) are doing an online "movie night" which is basically their Christmas show moved online due to current restrictions. It's an improv show, with a different "movie" each night.

Oook!

There's a Nexflix show called Blown Away - which immediately made me think of Moving Pictures.

It's about glass blowers - which leads me to the 9th episode of season 2, where one of the contestants made glass springs! They even had some bounce! :shock:
What ape? Oook! :book:
