The film Moonstruck has the important message that love just finds a way no matter the path. It also has in my opinion one of the best Nicholas Cage performances, tied with Spider-Man into The Spiderverse and The Croods.

The film Justice League The Snyder Cut is an over-hyped mess. Its main issues are the over-reliance on gore and the overly long run time. In all honesty I do not recommend this as a movie for the more sensitive among us. If you do watch it, there is a epilepsy warning due to bright strobing lights.

I’m not a fan of the recent DC movies. I really only like the first Wonder Woman movie. The rest range from bad to only mildly entertaining. That said, I loved Zack Snyder’s Justice League. I’ve seen it twice now. WB have squandered the potential of the DC source material. I hope they can turn it around.

Last night I saw Martin Scorsese’s The King of Comedy.

Todd Phillips took a hell of a lot of inspiration from that movie when he made Joker, and I think the reason this masterpiece was a commercial failure was because it was way ahead of its time.

As people were talking about Zack Snyder’s Justice League, I’ll put in a brief review. I thought it was great. Slow and indulgent, sure, but it’s also really atmospheric, the characterisation is miles ahead of the original film (low bar, I know) and it has some genuinely powerful and emotionally compelling moments. Most of all, I could tell it had passion put into it, unlike the very uninspired Justice League of 2017. While Joss Whedon’s version was a ‘corporate product’ film, clearly designed to appeal to as many people as possible, ZSJL has bold creative decisions and everything about it screams ‘fully realised artistic vision’ to me, even if it IS still a blockbuster film.

The actual last movie I saw was Close Encounters, which I was rewatching. Still a masterpiece. The way it handles the mystery of the aliens is nothing short of enchanting, although it’s increasingly clear to me that Roy Neary is a very irresponsible parent.

The film Godzilla vs King Kong 2021 is a visually stunning cinematic event that teaches the story that we can be friends no matter where we come from.
