I've finally seen 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' this weekend. Part of the reason I don't go to the cinema is that we have the 'sky cinema' package, so I just wait for films to come on there. Anyway I enjoyed it, though I thought the first film was better. This one felt more like a bridging film, like it only exists because of the one before and the one after if that makes sense.

-Jon Pertwee, on the making of The Claws of Axos, speaking 1987.

“Yes, I would occasionally bring in the odd bag of something.”

Currently reading "The Pyramid Game" by David Petrie. Just started, but if his last book ("Party Hard") is anything to go by (this is a sequel), this should be good.

Yeah, none of those films are very good, really. Grindewald has no second act, it's almost all act one then slam into act three in the last 20 minutes or so.

Quadrophenia. The movie, not the album.

I've not heard of either of them. Unsurprisingly. :P

The album is like, 4 hours long. I’ve never listened to all of it. Bits of it are good tho.

It's a pretty famous rock opera album (and movie) by The Who. I've not heard anything from it nor seen the movie lol...I should, I'd probably enjoy it.
