Just to clarify so I don't get asked to check in to the thick thread, I was being sarcastic.Thumbs Up

Brazil (1985) by Terry Gilliam

A bit too esoteric for my liking, and at 143 minutes in length, it's overlong - I'd say 30 minutes of its running time could've been excised and the movie wouldn't suffer for it - but it's an interesting comment on overbearing bureaucracy and tyranny nonetheless.

Jonathan Pryce is terrific in the leading role and supported by a, largely, able cast, and the cinematography is nice to look at.

Robert De Niro had a (too) brief supporting role that seemed underwritten considering the character's importance to the main plot, which is odd considering the aforementioned bloated running time.

I was honestly bored stiff at times, but the ending stuck the landing and redeemed it a good bit in my eyes, tying in nicely to the main character's earlier dream sequences.

It's definitely a unique film thematically and I'd just about give it a recommendation. I have a feeling it would be better on a rewatch when I can understand it a bit better.

Baggio: The Divine Ponytail 1/10

Despite Baggio being a phenomenal player the film was woeful. It basically glosses over a lot of his career.

Starts when he moves to Fiorentina getting injured before he goes, him getting into Buddhism and then fast forward to the 94 WC. No footage of him being in McGraths pocket, though it does highlight his performances there after and of course his penalty miss.

Then was forward to his move to Brescia and looking to go to 2002 WC which he doesn't cue end.

Just to add i wasn't expecting it to be any good

Nobody as reviewed by somebody previously.

Good craic. Little or no character development, just straight into action. 7/10

Not surprising, the trailer was enough for me to want to gouge out my eyes...
