Hi all


Well it's Oscar weekend, which of course means The Razzies on Saturday
night, with Transformers: The Last Knight leading the field with
nine noms. Hoping for infamy are some big names including Russel Crowe,
Tom Cruise and Anthony Hopkins. Should be fun. :-)

Opening locally (and Stateside) this week we have Red Sparrow, which has
had a lukewarm reception from the critics. Having an 18 age restriction is
not going to help matters either. 

The other big release is the remake of Game Night which fared better 
ratings-wise.

This week's Oscar hopeful is Daniel Day-Lewis' swansong Phantom Thread, 
which rounds out the adult fare for the week.

For family viewing we have the animated Gnome Alone, which does not seem
to have had much overseas exposure yet, as well as local faith-based 
production The Roar.

Bollywood supplies us with a rom-com, and there is a documentary about 
Hare Krishna on limited release.

At the Nouveaus, you can catch the ballet Romeo and Juliet, or the opera
Tosca.

Lastly, there are some previews next week for the action thriller Death
Wish. See the previews page and remember to book.

Ster-Kinekor's Sandton City venue is closed for renovations. Also missing
the showtimes for Eikestad Mall, not sure what is happening there.

Business-wise, Black Panther is kicking butt, especially Stateside, where
after two weeks it was sitting on 403 M$, while in comparison, Jumanji:
Welcome to the Jungle had 387 M$ after 10 weeks. (The SA figures, in 
dollars, are 3.47M$ for Black Panther and 5.24M$ for Jumanji, but there
may be a takeover in progress...)

The Film and Publications Board is once again reviewing their ratings 
guidelines. They seem to be of the opinion that our current ratings are 
not strict enough, and in truth, I'm seeing more films getting 18 than 
used to be the case.

They are also considering two new categories, being Gender Based Violence 
(GBV) and Culturally Sensitive (presumably CS) materials. 

This COULD in theory lead to a film being rated as 
16 L N S V SV D B IAT PPS GBV CS
and no, that is not a joke. 

The codes are:
* L Language
* N Nudity
* S Sex
* V Violence
* SV Sexual Violence
* D Drugs
* B Blasphemy
* IAT Imitative Acts and Techniques (seldom applied)
* PPS Pattern and Photo Sensitivity (ditto)
* GBV Gender-Based Violence
* CS Culturally Sensitive

Personally I think they need to take a step back and rethink the system...

* Game Night (16 LV)

* Red Sparrow (IMAX) (18 N S V SV)

Three racehorses were in the stable waiting for the big race. Trying to
psych each other out, they began bragging.

First horse, 'I've been in 38 races and have only lost twice.'
Second horse, 'Well, I've been in 47 races and have never lost.'
Third horse, 'Huh, I've never lost either and I even beat Secretariat
twice.'

Just then, they heard a chuckle by the stable door, and there was a
greyhound dog walking up to them.

The greyhound said, 'That's nothing. I've been in over 200 races and have
won every one by at least 3 lengths.'

First horse, 'Wow! That's amazing - a talking dog!'

Levels of stress:

You pick up a hitchhiker,  a beautiful girl. Suddenly she faints inside
your car and you take her to hospital. Now that's stressful.

But at the hospital , they say she is pregnant & congratulate you that you
are going to be a father.

You say that you are not the father, but the girl says you are. This is
getting very stressful,

So then...... you request a DNA test to prove that you are not the father.
After the tests are completed, the doctor says that you are infertile, and
probably have been since birth. You are extremely stressed but relieved.
On your way back home, you think about your 3 kids at home.

NOW THAT'S STRESS!!

Confucius say.......

Man who wants pretty nurse, must be patient.
Passionate kiss, like spider web, lead to undoing of fly.
Lady who go camping must beware of evil intent.
Man who keep feet firmly on ground have trouble putting on 
pants.
Man who leap off cliff jump to conclusion.
Man with tight trousers is pressing his luck.
Man who runs in front of car get tired, man who runs behind car get 
exhausted.
Man who walk through airport turnstile sideways going to
Bangkok.
Man with one chopstick go hungry.
Man who eat many prunes get good run for money.
War does not determine who is right, war determine who is
left.
Wife who put husband in doghouse soon find him in cat
house.
Man who fight with wife all day get no piece at night.
Man who drive like hell, bound to get there.
Man who stands on toilet is high on pot.
Man who live in glass house should change clothes in
basement.
Man who fish in other man's well often catch crabs.
Crowded elevator smell different to midgets.

One day my housework-challenged husband decided to wash his sweatshirt.
Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me, 'What
setting do I use on the washing machine?'
'It depends,' I replied. 'What does it say on your shirt?'
He yelled back, ' Liverpool.'
And they say blondes are dumb...

A couple are lying in bed. The man says,
'I am going to make you the happiest woman in the world.'
The woman replies, 'I'll miss you...'


'It's just too hot to wear clothes today.' Jack says as he stepped out of
the shower, 'Honey, what do you think the neighbours would think if I
mowed the lawn like this?'
'Probably that I married you for your money,' she replied.


Q: Why do little boys whine?
A: They are practising to be men.


Q: What does it mean when a man is in your bed gasping for breath and
calling your name?
A: You did not hold the pillow down long enough.

Mick and Paddy had promised their Uncle Seamus, who had been a seafaring
gent all his life, to bury him at sea when he died.

Of course, in due time, he did pass away and the boys kept their promise.
They set off with Uncle Seamus all stitched up in a burial bag and loaded
onto their row boat. After a while Mick says, 'Do yer tink dis is fer
enuff out, Paddy?' Without a word Paddy slips over the side, only
to find himself standing in water up to his knees. 'Dis'll neva do, Mick.
Let's row some more.' After a bit more rowing Paddy slips over the side
again, but the water is only up to his belly, so they row on. Again Mick
asks Paddy, 'Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out, Paddy?'

Once again Paddy slips over the side and almost immediately says, 'No,
dis'll neva do.' The water was only up to his chest. So on they row and row
and row and finally Paddy slips over the side and disappears. Quite a bit
of time goes by and poor Mick is really getting himself into a state when
suddenly Paddy breaks the surface, gasping for breath.

'Well is it deep enuff yet, Paddy?'

'Aye 'tis', says Paddy. 'Hand me da shovel.'
