England survive the first day to reach 302-7. A patient Joe Root worked hard to get a well-deserved century. A lot more than I expected after the morning session. A good dayโ€™s cricket ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ๐Ÿ

As a sports biopic I really enjoyed this; 2h40m went by quickly! Interesting content - I learnt a fair amount. Recreation of the cricketing scenes better than I was expecting ๐Ÿ

Eternals, 2021 - โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

A slightly different but fun Marvel spectacle. I thought the performances and the characters were great. Loved the jumping around ย places and times and found the storyline more interesting than that of a lot of recent Marvel films.

Feel the film was maligned by numerous reviews. I enjoyed it a lot more than those reviews led me to expect.
