Agreed, I've seen it twice now and once more tomorrow. Mostly good fun. NPH is a damp squid (to misquote a famous saying).

Just finished watching it. Not a fan of the new Smith. Must have missed it where Smith goes from calling Neo 'Mr. Anderson' to 'Tom'.

To me it was okay. Meh.

Saw The Matrix Resurrections again today. and I'm at the point of thinking it is quite good now. There are a lot of nods to the original in there (and not just the main story). I do love the flying scene as they leave the cafe for the big climax (described in a completely spoiler free way).

I then saw "The 355", which is a female lead spy thriller. It does a pretty good job from a standing start. Certainly worth a watch.

Started off with "The King's Man", which is an origin story for the Kingsman films. I was in too minds with this one the first time. It misses the style and slight oddness of the first two. Although it does have oddness a plenty in Russia, that doesn't quite hit the mark.

61*: A Billy Crystal directed film about the race between Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris to beat Babe Ruth's homerun record.

One of the better baseball movies out there, more about friendship against lots of outside forces, than the game itself.

Ape vs Monster: Another 'mockbuster' by The Asylum starring Eric Roberts in a 'Rampage' meets 'Godzilla vs Kong' meets 'Independence Day" clusterf*ck.

Terrible cgi, awful acting, all the big moments telegraphed far far ahead...right in line with most of the stuff out of Asylum.

Graham would have LOVED it!
