I've been watching entire movies and TV shows uninterrupted with my wife, unlike my usual solo-self who simply lacked the attention span needed to watch them. I would watch a TV episiode, 20 minutes at a time. Here are some of the movies and shows I've watched.
Black Panther - 5/10
Another cliched action movie from the same franchise, with the same cliched build-up, comeback and similar storylines. I just wish it were more gripping. The visuals were nice, the humour attempts poor. Definitely not worth the price for the first show ticket.
Jumanji: Welcome to the jungle - 6/10
Not nearly as impressive as the original but a watch with some big stars. The visuals are good. the humour is so-so and it could be just another action movie if it weren't for the Jumanji 'virtual world'. I mean, you really could take any action movie with 4 characters into the Jumanji outline to have this movie. Just watch it as a late night, mindless watch with no brains involved. It's fun.
Phantom Thread - 5/10
Really not my kind of movie. The artwork, styling is gorgeous and the mood well created, but the pace is really slow. It was a drag watching.
Get out - 10/10
Well-deserving award winner, a movie that builds up its thriller plot really well with great intensity for the first 60 minutes, broken up with bits of modern-day humour thrown in. Easy to relate, really gripping stuff and I couldn't stop watching this one. Really worth watching!
Wild Wild Country (TV series on Netflix) - 10/10
A real life tale of the religious cult from India that brainwashed a whole lot of people, and nearly took over a state in the US. It's done really well and first-hand interviews with people today makes it all the more exciting. Really shows you how religions start off with a naive, attractive agenda and turn dangerous really quickly.
