    Agreed. I read him to relax. Exciting is different. Just appreciating him as a wordsmith here. The LotR trilogy is great as an adaption. Just prefer the novels. Same with Batman, GoT and Dune.

    Saw Judas & The Black Messiah. Had a great time. Impressed with the performances of Lakeith Stanfield and Daniel Kaluuya.

    Just saw Unforgiven, 1990s western written and directed by Clint Eastwood. Nice last nod to his iconic run as bestubbled gunslinger, also an interesting look into the psyche of the morals of these characters, where Eastwood is the former outlaw who's mostly sworn off violence, and Gene Hackman is the authoritarian sheriff who imposes his moral view upon an entire community. Good stuff,

    I love this film, my second favourite Western after "Once Upon A Time in the West". It was so perfect that it was Eastwood who deconstructed the myth of cowboys into this brilliant attack on the reality of a gunslinger. Richard Harris and Morgan Freeman are excellent supporting cast, and the entire concept of why they all converge is beautiful in its simplicity. Love, love, LOVE IT!!!

    Finally saw Cruella - loved it - Disney is good at these villain prequels

    The Tomorrow War - Meh! the father-daughter relationship was touching but those aliens were unconvincing. Yvonne Strahovski is always great to watch though
