ANT-MAN is probably the lowest creative point in the Marvel Cinema Universe so far. The sequel looks more stylish.
I have seen 23 Steven Soderbergh films. Am looking forward to 24.
Out to own today:
From the creator of SIX FEET UNDER and TRUE BLOOD.
FARGO [season 3] ★★★★★
A rarity: Both depressing and exhilarating. The presentation of evil in human form is unusually horrifying. Organised crime as a force of nature. Hope comes in the form of those who combine intelligence and honour.
Giant mechs versus giant monsters should have been a slam dunk, yet PACIFIC RIM was duff.
The last time director Jason Reitman, writer Diablo Cody and actor Charlize Theron teamed up was for YOUNG ADULT.
Director Lucrecia Martel’s latest did not satisfy.
JOURNEY'S END ★★★☆☆
D: Saul Dibb (Suite Française, The Duchess).
S: Sam Claflin, Paul Bettany, Asa Butterfield, Stephen Graham, Tom Sturridge, Toby Jones.
Charismatic and sporadically vivid, but says little new about the First World War. It feels like a play.

The vital ambitions of art and entertainment:
- The unexpected
Brains and soul are key; but adrenaline junkies do not fret, there is also much love for an experience that delivers a sucker-punch to the guts via stunningly delivered thrills.
The evaluation of a film
Verb, "to filmaluate”:
To evaluate a film
I am well aware how difficult it is to make a film, put on a stage play, create a television show, write a novel, let alone make something of note. (That appreciation doesn’t stop me from having high standards though.)
