Well sayed Luke!

Lowest common denominator is right.

It is to the Star Wars cereal what Fallen Kingdom was to Jurassic Park.

Multiplex moron fodder.

Does giving it 6/10 fajitas proclude future movie reviews please?

Daisy Ridley is shit btw. Can't act.

Been looking forward to Uncut Gems. Heard it's Sandler's best work for ages.

Also, Parasite comes out tomorrow. Bring it on!

Sissy is right that some of the dialogue is frantic at times in Uncut gems but for me it just added to the sense of chaotic descent to howard. Really liked this film.. 8/10 franky and benny Burgers from me

Nb. No one should be put off Little Women by the poor review from a man who things it's OK to walk out of the house in leisure wear.

Uncut Gems

Oh we are on a roll here and more to come..

Uncut Gems came to my attention by popping up on my You Tube. This is starting to become a familiar tale, bloody You Tube! … Damn your heathen recommends..

Adam Sandler takes the lead as a Jewish Jewelry dealer in New York with a rather nasty gambling habit which as we join the tale is plunging him further and further into dark corners he is struggling to get out of.
Sandler’s character is on a constant roller coaster of ducking and diving and avoiding people he owes money to, think Del boy inside a loud mouthed, confrontational New Yorkers body. Howard ( Sandler ) is chasing the elusive big score and lurches from one disaster to another in its pursuit. Everybody knows Howard, everybody likes Howard even his wife who he is separated from because he is being unfaithful with a younger woman seems to still like him in her own barbed way.

The audience kinds of likes him, has sympathy with his troubles but there is still that underlying feeling that he is a bit of a scumbag although we do still hope he comes good.

There seems to be an awful lot of screaming and shouting at each other in this movie, so much so it actually became annoying, fortunately it rectified a bit for the third act and the story settled in to be interesting and engaging.

There has been a lot of talk on this film and mention of Sandler being up for an Oscar. To be fair his turn is very good although you still get a tang of Happy Gilmore in there. This isn’t a comedy, more a dramatic portrayal of, in all honesty a pretty loathsome man who for some reason has qualities that allow you to overlook his cheating and lying.

Overall I enjoyed it, parts ( the screaming and shouting over each other mainly ) were taxing to my old man conservative mind but it managed to get over the line with more pluses than negatives. Definitely worth a watch, I have a feeling this will be a marmite film.. Love it or hate it no in betweens
