Can't find the ol Movie thread - so starting this up, if a mod brings it back up happy that you shift this post.

Whilst on the flight back home the other day from the USA searching through the movies I happily came across
Diego Maradona 2019 Directed by Asif Kapadia.
Having watched him from his early days I can relate easily what he had done on the field and we all know what he had done off it.
I've had a love hate relationship with this guy but a couple of things stick out once again.
Came from such a poor family living in the slums.
Once recognised and established he was obviously used and abused and suck everything they could out of him, the pressure and circumstances he would have had to deal with would have been mind boggling, how to cope with a lack of education and most likely good and bad guidance. He was his own worst enemy as well.
What a life and career from highs (in a few ways) and the lows.
An absolute must see if you haven't seen.
Loved it.
Intro :
Having never won a major tournament, ailing football giant SSC Napoli had criminally underachieved. Their fanatical support was unequalled in both passion and size. None was more feared. But how they ached for success... On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee and for seven years all hell broke loose. The world's most celebrated football genius and the most dysfunctional city in Europe were a perfect match for each other. Maradona was blessed on the field but cursed off it; the charismatic Argentine, quickly led Naples to their first-ever title. It was the stuff of dreams. But there was a price... Diego could do as he pleased whilst performing miracles on the pitch, but when the magic faded he became almost a prisoner of the city. The third film from the Academy Award and BAFTA-winning team behind Senna and Amy, the film will be constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona's personal archive and in the style of Senna and Amy, will be a high-end and definitive feature documentary made with the full support of Maradona. In a city where the devil would have needed bodyguards, Maradona became bigger than God himself. This is the wild and unforgettable story of God-given talent, glory, despair and betrayal, of corruption and ultimately redemption.

Saw The Irishman with my partner on Saturday.  It's a masterpiece, go see it before it's hidden on Netflix forever.

Being Im a regular business traveler it pretty much the best time I catch up on the latest movies, well for me they are.
Saw the new Lion King - sure its light hearted but the original was so well done and my 1st son was mesmerised by it back then, I swear I saw it hundreds of times with him and those songs stay in your head haha.
Reckon the new one was good as well.
Next in the Aussie movie section a movie called Promised.
I related to this as well for its main storey line is the typical Italian early migrants here where the Dad promised his daughter to another Italian mates son.
Entertaining and great seeing scenes/backgrounds from the ol days.

Oh that Elton John movie was damn good as well on his rise to the top.

Hoping to see the new Ford vs Ferrari movie coming day or 3.

Joker is a masterpiece. 

He was a man of specific quirks. He believed that all meals should be earned through physical effort. He also contended, zealously like a drunk with a political point, that the third dimension would not be possible if it werent for the existence of water.

Agreed, Suicide Squad really upped the ante with their interpretation.
