Everything Everywhere All at Once - Christopher Nolan meets Stanley Kubrick meets Jackie Chan? Comedy, drama, action movie, surrealist trip with pathos and poignancy. Those familiar with Michelle Yeoh's work will enjoy her tongue in cheeky nods to her back catalogue. There's also an ongoing homage to Ratatouille. On one level it's a chaotic film with so many ideas & images thrown into it (including butt plugs!) that it could have been a complete mess but somehow it manages to be both entertaining and existential. One of the best films I've seen in a while. Well worth a watch.

Watched this eve, what a wild trip. Highly recommended.

Hard to believe it's not actually an onion article. Satire is truly dead!

This was the best bit.

"Johnson has also rewritten the foreword to the code, removing all references to honesty, integrity, transparency and accountability."

Tells you everything really.

"Man caught obviously lying repeatedly changes rules to say lying is kind of more or less ok really ". Does that cover it?

Our lodger just messaged saying there had been a power cut. The electric oven isnít working, but the grill goes on fine.

Iíve asked him to make sure the clock is reset (apparently one of the most common problems when this happens).

If this doesnít work, any ideas what could be the problem? I assume that they have the same fuse with it being a combined unit? The hob is a separate gas one.

We just watched Summit of the Gods.
My wife's review: "that was absolutely wank".

Probably the most unique / best pub in the country IMHO. Still is.
Every time I go in with my mates we laugh and talk about the experience for weeks afterwards!!

One afternoon nearly 19 years ago I took a girl I had recently started seeing into that pub on a sunny afternoon, saying how charming it was. It was dark inside, and the barman was engaged in conversation with the only customer. Next to him, stretched out on the bar, were two very fat, very dead rabbits.

She didn't hang around for a drink. God knows how she's still with me now.

Although most people, including many critics thought highly of Truffle Hunters, I wasn't that taken with it to be honest. Certainly, some of the cinematography is beautiful, especially the opening shot, but I felt that it really failed to create enough story to give it any narrative drive. For me I thought it was reasonably pleasant wallpaper TV but not really any more. I can see its appeal though, perhaps I was just in the wrong mood.
