That doesn't exactly sound like an unbiased perspective.

Actually, yes, you're right. I just remembered there is a clip of private footage where he jokes to the camera about the film's director, "he can shout 'action' and 'cut' all day long but it won't make him a director." And there is also footage of a suppressed/subtle heated exchange between the two. But he doesn't address it in his new narration is what I meant,

The Night House was an average horror film. The movie started promisingly and had a some scary moments with good tension. Yet it somehow lost it's way towards the end.

The Current War: Not a whole lot to say about this film, it was good and an interesting watch but nothing terribly special.

 

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot:  I wouldn't usually watch a war film as they aren't my thing but it's got Martin Freeman in it.  I've had this a while and have finally watched it and enjoyed it.  It's an interesting record of what it was like to be in Afghanistan in the early years if the war.

Candyman (2021) was a good remake/sequel. I enjoyed the original although I didn't find it very scary. This wasn't particularly scary either but I did think a slight improvement on the original.

Chaos Walking.  Not the best film ever and the plot had a lot of holes in it and some of the plot points didn't make a whole lot of sense but it was OK and not as bad as I thought it would be.  Not something I'm going to be too fussed about watching again but it was OK.

Respect (the Aretha Franklin biopic) was very impressive. It certainly gave a fascinating insight into her life with stories I'd never heard. A brilliant performance from Jennifer Hudson. If you are an Aretha fan you'll certainly like this.

Finally got round to life of Pi. 

Found it quite interesting, not sure if in places it was being intentionally funny but it came across that way.(or it may just be my sense of humor possibly.) Appart from that I enjoyed it.

DON'T BREATHE 2 (2021)
3/5 (No spoilers) 

My expectations were high since producer Sam Raimi said a few years ago, "this is only the best idea for a sequel I've ever heard. No kidding." He must've been talking out of his ass or drunk. Opinions of the first film were split mostly cos viewers were expected to root for petty thieves. If that was you, you'll hate the sequel even more cos this time the villain is the hero.

The sequel takes place 8 years later so we could assume The Blind Man (Stephen Lang) has learned to regret his evil ways but for the most part he's still the same character with the same motives. If you can get past the villain-hero switch, the film is actually quite enjoyable with some great tense moments...at least for the first half BUT once the villains' motives are revealed it just gets dumber.

I found the first death unnecessary and it left me confused while there was some obvious exposition and no sign of the emergency services whatsoever. The writing is fairly clunky with ideas strung together with not much substance to back them up (there's plenty gaps that need filling). Yes, its a dumb film yet still manages to be enjoyable up to a certain point

No Time To Die was a good addition to the franchise with enough action and Bond moments to please fans. It was much more drawn out than it needed to be but a good finale from Daniel Craig.
