The_Two_Popes_posterNot being a fan at all of religion, either neo-religion as in climate change alarmism or traditional religion as in the Catholic Church, I was not remotely expecting to enjoy the movie The Two Popes. I only started watching it at the suggestion of my darling Louise.

But much to my surprise, it was brilliant. The two somewhat ageing Welsh actors – Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce – were superb as the German Pope Benedict and the Argentinian Pope Francis.

It all just goes to show that with a really good screenplay, compelling acting, skilful music, costumes etc pretty much any old guff by way of plot is enough for a good movie.
