    We liked In Order of Disappearance on Amazon Prime. Norwegian dad taking on the gang who killed his son, igniting a gang war. Itís a weird balance of being serious and funny, but it works a lot better than that sounds.

    Agreed, it was really excellent I thought.

    I've seen a few good ones on cable recently. Can't remember many, but these do pop to mind:


    • Hanna with Saoirse Ronan
    • Grosse Pointe Blank with John Cusack
    • The 6th Day with Arnold Schwarzenegger
    • Unforgiven with Clint Eastwood

    This is a great film and probably one of the last good films Cusack has done. Has he done anything reasonable / good in the last 15 years or so? I've seen him in some decidedly mediocre (verging on crap) stuff over this last 15 years. As an aside the soundtrack to Grosse point blank is very good.

    Yup, agree probably Cusack's best work.

    THE WRESTLER

    Undoubtedly mentioned before, on Amazon Prime if you haven't seen it or fancy a revisit.

    What a solid piece of storytelling, both the film and Mickey Rourke were robbed at the Oscars.

    1917. Very good film, gives a good realistic feeling of what a day in the life of a foot soldier was like.

    However, the only niggle is, as per usual with war movies and I donít think this is a spoiler, the baddies canít hit anything for toffee, whereas the goodies hit their mark first time.

    It is indeed very solid, Mickey Rourke manages to bring real pathos to the role. You'd have to go all the way back to his turn in Angel Heart, for my money, for as good a performance.

    Indeed. Can't beat it when a couple of dozen professional tough guys with machine guns are chasing the goody, they all miss him, and he gets them all with a pistol, knife and bare hands!

    Tis the rifle don't you know. The Mausers you had to move your head to chamber a round thus spoiling your aim. Good old Lee Enfield you didn't.

    Iím sure that had an influence on outcomes but in itself is not enough, particularly for this film, to explain the discrepancy.

    Wind River on Netflix. Good story based on real events, with a truly bitter background (google Oliphant vs Suquamish about limited jurisdiction inside Indian Territories) and wonderfully scenes of Wyoming.

    Recommended.

    I agree. I've rewatched the trailerpark scene several times on Youtube. Writer Taylor Sheriden is a master at creating scenes with palpable, sweaty-palms tension - he did the same with the US/Mexico border crossing scene in Sicario.

    Jeremy Renner is also excellent in this, an actor that never disappoints.

    '7500' on Amazon Prime is absolutely top draw edge of the seat stuff. Disconcertingly authentic according to my cabin crew girl friend. Highly recommended.

    No doubt theyíve been covered but watched The Gentleman yesterday (and The Rise of Skywalker) - definitely got to be a Guy Ritchie fan, but best heís done since Snatch....enjoyed very much and Hugh Grant was very funny.

    In Star Wars case, tíwas OK it not the big ending I was hoping for after 40 odd years of the saga, but then I didnít really know what kind of ending I wanted either.

    Freaks on Netflix, hugely greater than its low-budget indie status. The first act is very much "WTF is going on?" but it does a great job of tying up the loose ends without spoon-feeding the viewer. Emile Hirsch is brilliantly manic, Bruce Dern is Bruce Dern cranked up to 11 and the child actress lead is fantastic. Don't watch the trailer or read reviews, just watch the movie, it's better to go in blind.

    Usually don't like these superhero romps but this was pretty good; probably enjoyed because my future wife's in it.

    Game night on Amazon was fun... although we had quite a liquid evening so that might have distorted things!

    Children of Men and Rocknrolla are both back on Netflix. Both excellent films, obviously in different ways.

    There was supposed to be a sequel to Rocknrolla, but apart from anything else, they couldn't afford to reassemble that cast.

    Watched Superswede list night on Sky Documentaries, a film from a couple of years back about Ronnie Peterson.

    It was very very good, well worth a watch if you have any interest in motorsport

    Children of Men is as good if not better than the original Blade Runner, if anyone hasnít seen it. The car scene especially. Just a fantastic, unforgettable film.

    Took a gamble on 'The Disappearence Of Alice Creed' on Prime tonight and it paid off. Great little low budget British kidnap drama.

    It's worth it just for Gemma Arterton.
