MC round up 4/24

I think these may end up being monthly… and probably not comprehensive! So I am failing to be quite as mindful as desired. Hey ho.

Most important films I’ve watched: I have rewatched Godfathers 1 and 2 with my boys. These remain astonishing films (and we’ll watch the coda soon); these days I am more aware of the tragedy and idolatry involved in Michael’s story, as opposed to – when I first watched them – the ‘coolness’ of the violence and power. So good, both 5/5. Also provides context for Sopranos, which we shall resume watching soon.

Watched Transporter 1 and 2 – if I want to switch off and veg out in front of the goggle box, Mr Statham is a reliable companion. 4/5 (second one better)

The Night Agent (Netflix) – very enjoyable; formulaic and derivative, but enjoyable. 3/5

I have cancelled my Disney+ subscription, for various reasons, but I rewatched The Marvels. Which is fine, and Brie Larson is good in the role. Shoot me. 3/5

I have given up video games for Lent. Which is hard, but which I think is doing me good.
