- Murder on the Orient Express (Kenneth Branagh 2017) 16 November 2017I thought this would be stupid fun. After all, how can you make a coherent movie about a crime with a dozen suspects? It wasn't fun. In fact, it makes me seriously consider kicking my movie habit. And it brings me close to deciding never to see another film directed by Kenneth Branagh.
- Call My Agent / Dix pour cent Series 2 (Fanny Herero 2017) 14 November 2017This would probably be even funnier if I recognised the film stars playing slightly humiliating versions of themselves but it's funny and sentimental and edgy – manages to have a three-way sex scene that is funny enough not to be embarrassing, for example).

It's good fun, as a Taika Waititi film (he made Hunt for the Wilderpeople), and I especially loved the Maori presence in Asgard. It did, however, make me realise that I've seen enough superhero films for one lifetime – the massive destruction of life and environments if it's not boring […]
