I had my jaw wide open when Red Skull turned up! How.The.Fuck!

I don't even remember what happened to him at the end of CapAm1, so seeing him alive was awesome.
But then: him being on that planet, knowing about the Soul Stone so much (his middle name is Exposition) and surviving all that time? There's gotta be an explanation.

I clapped loudest when Thor enters the final battle with his new hammer. That man delivers ass-whooping!

It’s interesting how you get introduced to the works of a filmmaker by sheer chance. Stephen “The Interruptor” Calloway put forward a question to the directors at this years THR Roundtable, asking them which film they would chose if they were on a lifeboat with a Blu-Ray player. Patty Jenkins choose a film called, “I Know Where I’m going” which I'd never heard of nor of the film maker duo, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. I ended watching it and absolutely loved it! This led to more of Powell and Pressburger, “The 49th Parallel”, “The Spy in Black” and their masterpiece, “The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp”.

Blimp is an epic film about a war hero, Clive Candy,  that covers three periods in his life - as a young soldier who fought in the Boer War, a decorated officer in the First World War and finally a veteran struggling to come to terms with a changed world in the Second World War. Played magnificently by Roger Livesey, a Powell favorite, who also appeared in two other films of his, Blimp is a delightfully British film that dared to satirise the traditionalism that existed during that era and invoked the wrath of Churchill himself. Many consider this as the greatest British film ever made and it most definitely lives up to that reputation. Martin Scorsese who is a long time fan of Powell helped with the latest restoration of the film along with Thelma Schoonmaker, his regular editor who also happens to be Powell’s widow.

4.5/5

But I will admit that homage/deconstruction of The Shinning was utter brilliance (and at times even creepy).

That was probably the best bit in the film.

Great season. I thought it was better than Season 01 and the Defenders.
Yeah. I loved this season, quite a departure from the first one. I like how they moved from a psychological drama to a family centred one and no villain this time. Takes some courage to make a super hero themed show with no villain!
