    This won't appeal to all but just watched An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn on Netflix.

    If you like Napoleon Dynamite, its a similar type of production and characters.

    I really enjoyed it. Daft, weird, no need for it but just funny. I am a big fan of a few of the people in it (Jermaine Clement and Matt Berry)

    Velvet Buzzsaw

    Beautifully shot, brilliant cast and actors...ruined by making it supernatural. Became more of a 'Final Destiny' film unfortunately.

    I know it's been out a good while but I watched First Man last night and thought it was really good.

    Not your typical Hollywood true story.

    The 12th Man. Wow. Fantastic film. So uncomfortable at times but engrossing nonetheless.
    Based on a true story set in WW2 Norway.

    Anthropoid

    Not a new film, but I have been meaning to watch Anthropoid for while, since visiting the crypt in Prague where there is a memorial to the same event.

    The film is not amazing in every aspect by any means, but it is quite poignant, particularly if you have visited the place involved as well. Well worth a watch, but it is no blockbuster movie and doesn't try to be. It is quite slow to get going, but stick with it as it gets better.

    I was also rather ashamed to say that I had no idea what the Munich Agreement was before I watched the film either.

    A most excellent film... I used a slightly altered version of the monologue about 'memories' in my Dad's eulogy at his funeral last month

    Green book. Magically capturing the era portrayed. Reminded me of a Bronx tale without the Mafia portion. Central actors were excellent.

    Saw Liam Neeson in his latest revenge drama. Worth the price.

    Alita - Battle Angel. Worth the price of admission for the gratuitous but frustratingly fleeting sight of Jennifer Connelly in stockings and suspenders.

    Polar on Netflix. Over the top and youíll either love it or hate it. Mads Mikkelsen is very good.

    Watched "American Animals" which in their words was in not based on a true story but is a true story, and a good one at that.

    Watched the Revenant yesterday. Really good film. I think Di Caprio is one of these actors of his generation.

    His portrayal of Howard Hughes was absolutely Oscar-worthy.

    Should have read:

    Di Caprio is one of the best actors of his generation.

    I agree - underrated by many.

    He is excellent in Blood diamond and the Departed.

    Great thriller with a great twist.

    Took a walk down memory lane to my childhood and watched Southern Comfort last week. My childhood was not spent in a swamp and I'm not a Cajun Indian. I just watched the film a lot when I was younger.
    Anyway, great film. I prefer it to the oft-compared Deliverance..

    I watched Cold Pursuit tonight....I didn't have particularly high expectations. It had some dodgy overacting and the odd pointless character but overall I quite enjoyed it. There was some amusing black humour as well.

    Mortal Engines (2018)



    Plot: In a post-apocalyptic world where cities ride on wheels and consume each other to survive, two people meet in London and try to stop a conspiracy. more
    Imdb page: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1571234/



    Watched yesterday. A really great movie, not what you call a true Sic-Fi film... but it is certainly a true fantasy genre movie,
    could not ask better of the acting, interesting story line. 7/10 ;)

    Iím having a pint, about to go see Alien at the cinema, 40th anniversary showing. Worth checking your local cinema if you never got to see it the first time. I was a month away from being born!

    An absolute classic. Great to see on the big screen.

    Behind the Curve on Netflix. An insight into the Flat Earth Society's main protagonists. Quite literally unbelievable.

    I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't that. Really well made and acted...just not a bundle of laughs.


    I followed it up with CapernaŁm as a double bill. Now I'm really depressed...the latter being equally well made and acted, IMO, but very, very bleak.

    Took the boy to see Captain Marvel earlier....it was very enjoyable. Not perfect but featured some useful back stories and set us up nicely for Avenger's Endgame.
    Interestingly I'd read a couple of reviews and they weren't very complementary. I think the problem is that too many of the professional film critics are too far up their own bottoms and don't watch (for example) a Marvel film and take it for what it is. The Times' critic falls firmly within this category and has been fairly disparaging of several films that I have found pretty good.

    Just watched Free Solo, Alex Honnold climbed El Capitan in Yosemite over 3000 ft no equipment whatsoever. At times I was feeling sick at some of the views down the rock face and the thought of one slip.

    Confessions. Japanese film from 2010. Very atmospheric thriller about a school teacher and her pupils with a good plot and a number of surprises.

    Don't know if it's been mentioned here before, but I watched Let Me In (2010) tonight on cable with Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Grace Moretz. It's a very touching drama of a 12 year-old girl vampire who befriends a boy who is constantly bullied at school. A+
