Travelling long haul yesterday, so I caught a few films I'd missed. Crimes of Grindelwald was fun; doesn't add much to the first one but it moved the plot along and it looked beautiful, especially the clothes. Depp was largely wasted in a role that any halfway competent actor could have done - for a character actor of his strength (even given his recent troubles) I'd expected more. Jude Law was surprisingly good as a young Dumbledore, though. Overall, a nice addition to Rowling's world, and again proved that it can work with all-adult characters. Bumblebee was vastly superior to the other films in the Transformers franchise - finally, a good workable script with some good acting turns from the humans alongside the impressive effects. First Man is very good indeed, nothing more to add to the posts on that above. The Meg - somewhere between Jaws III and Sharknado. Knowing, campy fun that neither goes too silly nor ruins itself by stage-whispering to the audience about ow clever and campy it is (a la the execrable Scream). Complex dances for two leads who couldn't dance., whiled conversely they chose two leads who could sing well enough and gave them rubbish, repetitive songs in a half-key outside their comfortable ranges. Saw it in the cinema at the time. Refused to buy into the hype, but was still disappointed. Herself hated it. I felt I'd basically seen a mid-90s also-ran Woody Allen that'd he'd made in his sleep and that might ave been diverting enough on a plane for a couple of hours if I'd seen everything else available twice. Not even deserving of a nomination for something as discredited as the Oscars, let alone a prize worth winning.
