    Eyes Wide Shut

    Aside from the decent performance from Cruise, this film is an utterly non starter and non entity.

    What was the point of that near 3 hour slog? Rich people and rich people problems, thoroughly unlikeable characters, nothing to connect or engage with.

    A woefully underused Nicole Kidman.

    Just woeful in general. Unless you are a big fan of watching Tom Cruise wander around New York at night.

    ★★★★

    Much the original Gojira, Daimajin works because it is firstly a great film, that happens to have a monster element.

    The Daimajin doesn't even show up until 68 minutes into the film. But his presence is felt in the foreboding.

    Solid acting and directing throughout.

    A real treat.

    "You and I remember Budapest very differently"

    For the most part this really does feel like a James Bond style adventure, or Marvel:Impossible.

    Great action. Great acting. Great score.

    It was well worth the wait.

    ★★★★

    Very much washes out the bad taste of the terrible original, lots of good jokes, decent cast, very much a fan of the violence and gore on show.

    I did find the styling a bit... much. All the titles and location titles started to get a bit twee by the end.
