    1. Well I don’t know anything about his personal life or even his music, but that cameo is utterly stupid! But then again the whole movie is just idiotic.

    1. Ahah, well you saw No Time To Die and Spider-Man: No Way Home too right? But yeah, I LOVE Dune, glad one of my most anticipated movies did meet my expectations!

    Ha, ha, hey Flixy, LOVE all your new award categories! You get the award for coming up with some many Best new categories, LOL 🙂

    1. Ahah thanks Becky! I actually started my notes on my iPhone like a week ago and just kept adding different categories, this was fun to do 😀

    1. Glad you enjoyed the award list, it was fun to work on it!

      Yeah Barb & Star seems like it’s been released ages ago. I gotta say Jamie Dornan is quite versatile to go from his quirky role in B&S to the more reflective one in Belfast!!
