Manchester United did that and it's not been going very well so far.

Stowaway on Netflix. Another of the space survival genre, but I enjoyed it. 8/10.

I watched "the wrath of man" the other night, a Guy Ritchie movie. Pretty enjoyable.

I reviewed this last week over in The Lounge. Not a brilliant movie, but entertaining and worth watching.

Stowaway on Netflix, great cast, absolutely awful plot.

I watched The Suicide Squad last night. Good Lord it was violent, extremely gory but in a comedic kind of way.

Ludicrous, but fun. And I never get tired of Margot Robbie.

Talking of whom, this weekend I finally made time to watch Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I'm not exaggerating to say that it is one of the best movies I've ever seen in my life. Absolutely tremendous stuff.

Talking of Tarantino movies, my Daughter watched Pulp Fiction the other week and now she gets why I still recite lines from a 27 year old movie on a daily basis. For example, when I am sweeping the floor and she is in the way, I ask her to "step aside Butch" or when she is playing deaf I shout "do you hear me talking hillbilly boy" at her

I love that movie.

I watched the latest James Bond the other night - No time to die. I thought it was good.

I wasn’t keen, but I am not really a JB fan anyway.

I'm only really interested in his wrist watch, his car, and whatever gadgets Q gives him. Can't wait to see who they got lined up for the next 007.

I never understand why it has to be 007. I mean all this talk about black or female actors. We already know there are Double-O agents (Sean Bean was a 006) and we have already seen a replacement 007 for the period Bond was inactive and we've had white and black actors playing Felix and male and female as "M".
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. with Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin was supplemented by The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. with April Dancer. Mission Impossible has successfully been rebooted with a completely different character in Ethan Hunt compared to original Jim Phelps.

There's even been a Jason Bourne movie without Jason Bourne.

I think Daniel Craig has been utterly brilliant as Bond and acting wise, as well as character wise, why not retire the number 007 just as sports teams retire a number worn by a legend?

There are 8 other Double-Os to be used or they could even come up with a different name in rebranding; my main civil service grade had three different names in my DSS/DWP days, but no gadgets better than this.
Spoiler:

Plug-in, desktop calculator




I'm sure the Intelligence Services can think of something different to call their top agents.
