    I'm generally not big on McAdams, but I heard she was good in Eurovision.

    Oh yeah I saw and liked Da Five Bloods. I forgot that was Netflix only. Eurovision looks funny and enjoyable so I'll watch that one sooner or later.

    And as he lay there
    Playing games with his pain
    He felt his choice of jobs
    Was such a mistake
    He could have been a doctor
    In a soft easy chair
    Instead he chose three stars
    A territorial affair

    The actual Eurovision contest is dumb but has a lot of fans and inside stuff, and the best thing about the movie is that it doesn't mock or make fun of it but finds the joy and humor in embracing the silliness. The best scene is the one featuring some of the recent winners and popular contestants, and it's packs more of a punch if you're in the know.

    Enjoyed the too infrequent action scenes, especially the finale. But protagonists as almost monotonously serious as this bunch need a good, fun counter-villain, and both the character and Melling's performance just feel all wrong and dull. Theron saves it enough, but I hope the sequel embraces the sillier and funner aspects of this premise more readily. 6/10

    Let's face it, streaming movies will be getting a softer reception for quite some time, everywhere.

    Sure, that’s why I gave the last two Netflix films I watched before this one... *check rating for Wasp Network and Eurovision* ...both 2.5/5.
