ANOMALISA...
Going to Hell

Like TV, it seems there's nothing I particularly want to see at the cinema, or everything's on at the same time. I thought I'd better see ANOMALISA while it was still showing. It's a pawky little tale of quiet desperation, enacted by creepy Uncanny Valley puppets. It was intriguing, and held my attention, but once again, I don't know if I bought the 'major masterpiece' stuff nearly all the reviews proclaimed.  It was preceded by the usual half an hour or so (it seemed) of ads and trailers. SUPERMAN V BATMAN doesn't look all that, but HIGH RISE might be very good. I've not read the novel,but I've seen all Ben Wheatley's  films and liked them, especially the superb A FIELD IN ENGLAND and KILL LIST. It will be interesting to see what he does with a big-budget spectacle. Also, young Mr Hiddleston gets his kit off again...

I was never much of a cinema-goer

After discovering I'd missed new Star Wars, I took in a classic screening of The Deer Hunter last week. I did not have a good time. Jerked forward in my seat when someone behind foot-tapped. I haven't seen Deadpool, and I'd like to. Maybe the new Cloverfield? I don't know. For telly, I've been enjoying the usual diet of Always Sunny, Better Call Saul and Vikings, along with Silicon Valley which sums up most of my creative coding and tech work-mates works wonders in hilarious blather dialogue.

Re: I was never much of a cinema-goer

Totally agree about Silicon Valley. I have a (small) database consultancy and it's absolutely dead on. Looking forward to series 3!
