First film was great entertainment, second was alright but a chore and the third was dull as dishwater.John Wick 3: Parabellum
They jumped the shark with the first film in this franchise and now they are jumping whales. Seriously, this film has nothing going for it even if you are a fan of action films.
When I think back to what kids TV was like in my day, especially in the summer holidays.
Laurel and Hardy, 1930's Flash Gordon serial, that black and white Robinson Cruesoe series et al.
We were 'entertained' by stuff older than our parents.
Stan and Ollie on iPlayer, a whimsical and I thought reverent film about them. Whatever one may think of Steve Coogan, I thought he did a good job of portraying Stan Laurel.
Somehow got to talking about the film with a 20 something colleague today who didn’t know who they were. I guess it’s another one of those generational checks one asks of others such do they know what a Nissan hut is.
But he hadn’t even heard of Blondie and Debbie Harry. I was shocked, shocked I tell ya. That was only the 70s, not like WW2.
Stan and Ollie, really, really a gem. Coogan and Reilly's portrayal was fantastic. It's a quiet little film, it doesn't miss a beat and deserved a lot more success - - and Oscars, imo. One of my all time favourite films.
Even if you don't know Ollie & Stan it's worth a watch. Character acting at its best. Loved the wives too.
Could be the same if it was Operation Biting aka the Bruneval raid Mountbatten made the comment during a documentary about the latter which he had authorized as head of combined ops. Part of his raiding part was a recently formed Para unit.I'm not sure. A Para knifes a German Sentry while Ralph Richardson(?) looks on bug eyed.
