With festive feasts far behind us what better film to officially open the new year with than dark comedy ‘The Menu’, which I saw at one of my favorite cinemas, the historic Empire on Haymarket Street in Central London. Having gone into it cold, not knowing the plated details, I was soon enthralled by this fiendishly foodie thriller. Starring the fabulous Ralph Fiennes as devilishly diabolical Chef Slowik; he has no problem delivering a 5-Star…...
I think I missed this at my local cinema, but I'm just not interested in modern films as much so I am in no hurry (plus I have a lot going on). I do plan on seeing The Whale on Friday, & I like Brendan Fraser, although it is likely that Elvis guy will get the Oscar especially with the passing of Lisa Marie Presley. I am also still annoyed that the Queensland government allowed the pretentious & extremely overrated Baz Luhrmann to make this movie during massive lockdowns when no one was allowed to travel anywhere. Give me the John Carpenter TV movie Elvis with Kurt Russell over the obnoxious Lurhmann.
I did recently see The Fabelmans & Avatar 2, both of which I liked a lot, & one of the best newer films I've seen recently was an Italian film called I Nostri Fantasmi which I saw on one of my return flights home last November, so I'd recommend it.
I am rooting for Brendan Fraser as well so glad he has made a comeback I am also happy for Ke Quan Hayn (I think that's how you say his name)have liked him sense he was Data in Goonies.
