    The Killing of a Sacred Deer. I wanted to like it, but it held itself just too far from reality to get me engaged with the plight of the protagonist. Barry Keoghan, the creepy kid antagonist, acted the pants of Farrell and Kidman, who seemed to have been tranquillized for their roles.

    (I found the scariest part of the whole thing was the evidence of Nicole Kidman's appalling choice of plastic surgeon, but that's probably just me.)

    Last episode of Season 5 of Endeavour. The whole season has been setting up interesting possibilities for Season 6, and I have suspicions about where CS Bright's character is heading.
    Disappointing, though, to hear Morse (the pedantic Greats scholar) mispronounce Daedalus and Suetonius in quick succession.

    I notice there are lots of 'easter Eggs' for fans of old school detective shows hidden in Endeavour. Names of people and companies or locations etc.

    Russell Lewis is a clever man. There was even a Pratchett reference, a couple of years ago.

    Speaking of "Easter eggs" and call-backs, I'm not sure if this one was intentional or not.

    I was watching a made-for-television movie in which the female lead has struck up an online relationship with a well-known photographer. Things go well and he invites her to visit his home and attend a showing of his new work. He sends her a train ticket 'cause his town is too small for an airport. The train pulls into the station and the sign announces the stop as "Willoughby." Had I not known this was a romcom, I would have been very suspicious.

    The original version of The Ladykillers--funny, funny stuff.

    I normally wouldn't watch and couldn't enjoy a movie with that much singing, but Pitch Perfect balances it out with lots of humor, forming an endearing whole.

    John Thaws daughter Abigail is in the series as regular character Dorothea Frazil the editor of the Oxford Mail.

    In the scene where Morse first meets her he asks if they have met before as she seems familiar, which was nice.

    So Bellevue wrapped up. The ending was interesting if not fully satisfying (Anna Paquin shot her long-lost brother who was trying to kill her to get her to kill him, then she and her ex and their daughter left town before the police chief could tell her he'd loved her since she was nine) but I know the characters they created were interesting enough that I kinda wish they'd do a sequel so I can find out what happens to them next.

    First episode of Krypton

    It's got great production value. The sets and VFX look like they're from a 100+ million dollar sci-fi movie. The story? Too early to tell--could be great, terrible, or somewhere in between.

    Whoever did the VFX on the "hourglass cape" has a terrible grasp of time. At the rate it's visibly decaying it'd be gone in a few hours, which would be quite a short series!

    Pitch Perfect 2 - it's enjoyable, but not as funny as the original. Needs more Hana Mae Lee being weird-cute.

    10 Cloverfield Lane. Not my usual, but I'm basically prepared to try anything John Goodman was prepared to try, so that worked out fine.

    Them!

    One of the first (the other was The War of the Worlds) 50s sci-fi movies I watched with my dad, who passed last week. He would always call out "True story!" when "The End" faded in...

    Oddly, I had a false memory of there actually being a scene of the flying ants, but upon watching the movie tonight, no such scene exists, just a character describing seeing the ants in the air. My brain made a very plausible false memory that's persisted for years (I haven't watched the whole film in over 15 years, I bet).

    I really enjoyed this movie. Goodman was (as expected) very good. (The theatrical release used an alternate ending. The original was not so optimistic.)

    Goodman does benevolent menace like no-one else, in my opinion.
    The alternative ending is sitting in the bluray extras, I think, but I haven't got around to looking at it yet. It was always going to be difficult to come up with a satisfactory ending. The ending I saw was probably good cinema, but seemed out of character. Or, perhaps, it produced a character arc I found played more to "Wouldn't it be cool?" than "What would the character we've built so far do under these circumstances?"

    And he became Davy Crockett because Walt Disney was so impressed with him in it, too! You also forgot Mr. Spock, who has a brief role as an army sergeant. The cast is really packed, but when I watched it, what struck me is that one of the kids is played by a guy named Richard Bellis. The name doesn't mean anything to most people, but I went to Bellis Music Camp for six years in my youth. And, indeed, it is that Richard Bellis, who missed a year of camp when I was a kid because he was off writing the music for the miniseries version of Stephen King's IT. I was so disappointed when I watched Her and he had nothing to do with it; pronoun movies just aren't the same without him.
