Looks like a crisis of conscience between Motley Crue and Duran Duran.

This is why television is superseding cinema and filling that emotional vacuum.

He’s an annoying extra from a Ken Loach film.

Thanks John for the mention. Have a great weekend and think about all those future auditions and opportunities that await.

I don’t understand this obsession with making lists the whole time. It’s all very Nick Hornby and Brett Easton Ellis. Saying that, I Daniel Blake doesn’t deserve to be anywhere near a top ten. Probably the most unrealistic and patronising film about working class people ever.

Brilliant! I love how the metaphysical conversation between Burt Reynolds and Bernie Casey ties up with the cocaine-riddled Silva character that suggests he’s some kind of ghost.

I’m definitely not a fan of classic music being used as ‘on the nose’ indicators that bolster dramatic scenes. I think it’s unimaginative and cheap. The choices that Mary Ramos put to Tarantino for Once Upon a Time are how it should be done.

No I haven’t. It looks very Jean Cocteau inspired.

The Artist should be a companion piece to Paul Auster’s Book of Illusions.

For that you would have to go to the closing scene of The Artist with Berenice Bejo and Jean Dujardin. They really knocked it out of the park and they weren’t even pros.

Modern soundtracks overall are fairly innocuous. I don’t know why everything can’t be as strong or as strident as The Cover is not the Book.

La La Land was at its most magical in the Griffith Observatory sequence. I kept thinking about the heritage of Rebel Without a Cause and fifties Hollywood. The score and the choreography were pretty low key though. Unlike the Return of Mary Poppins.

More British telly like this please and less of the proselytising and sanctimonious middle class BAFTA bait that passes for drama.

Especially when they give life-affirming speeches about civil rights and feminism. Meanwhile their Hispanic cleaning lady has her arm stuck up their U-bend.

Imagine doing a great job putting it all together and then fucking up the Motorhead decal.
