    Classic.

    That's what I thought about the Eddie Stobart movie.

    I just watched the wild bill movie, thoroughly recommend. Good British cast, good plot with a not too corny an ending.

    Easy viewing thumbs up

    A Quiet Place pt II

    You get a bit more back story and itís not as dialogue free as the first film. It leads directly on from the moment the first film ended.
    I quite enjoyed it.

    Just finished watching 'Saint Maud' on Prime. It's the only film that's managed to bore me then scare me to the point where I had to turn all the lights on. May have to re watch it soon.

    No, but saw a shit movie at the cinema today: New Order, a dystopian view of a collapsing Mexican society that becomes an ugly mess at the hands of writer/producer/director, Michel Franco.


    You've been warned!

    I watched this series years ago.
    Just watched it again.
    Ranks up there with the best (in my opinion).

    Iím in the utter boredom phase of this. Am only watching further as have not had a film scare me in years. Although a bright sunny day probably isnít the ambience for it.

    No doubt been mentioned before but I enjoyed 'Sicario' and 'Sicario: Day of the Soldado'. I thought Emily Blunt, Benecio Del Toro and Josh Brolin were excellent in them.

    I watched Man of Wrath last night, old Jas was awesome along with the rest of the cast. For Guy Ritchie, it was a very pleasant surprise to see him break away from the lock stock and snatch mode.

    Very good

    True mate, a few plot holes granted. But all in all, not too shabby a film.

    Agreed, do love a bit of Kick Fk action, I also watched wild bill last night as recommended above. Was a good British film. No doubt Low budget, arguably better than Wrath of Man flick. Some classic comedy moments as well.

    Watched Wrath of Man last night. Statham/Richie movie which could have gone either way. Turns out it was very unlike a normal Guy Richie (his are hit or miss for me!) and was really good. Not his usual style at all, felt a little like a Tony Scott type movie. Wonít win any Oscars but very enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.

    I watched it a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was decent but not his best. It did feel like the trailers covered a lot of the good bits.

    Yesterday

    Watched 'Yesterday' last night.
    Not sure if it was good or bad really, usual rom-com stuff with a Danny Boyle/Richard Curtis input and a couple of 'pop star cameos' thrown in for interest.

    It was one to watch with the family/wife, decent enough way to spend a couple of hours but probably not one I would personally watch again.

    Yep... BTDT.

    tbh I thought S3 wasn't up to S1/2 but it was still very good and some of the best TV I've seen this year.

    Agreed both are very good, Cool Hand Luke is one of my favourites. I do like Paul Newman.

    I think this is the first mention of Argo in this thread (from 2012!) and it has since been noted by many others, so I am very late to watch this. But I agree with this original assessment.

    I also liked the cinematography (Rodrigo Prieto shooting on film, using zoom lenses and deep colours to emulate the 70s/80s look well) and the direction by Affleck, surely emulating his acknowledged influence Sidney Lumet, whose 70s masterpiece Network is referenced in the script.

    Sense and Sensibility - interesting background as Emma Thompson wrote the screenplay over five years (adapted from the Jane Austen novel) with a hand from Stephen Fry (he rescued the nearly lost draft on her computer).

    Directed by Ang Lee (Crouching tiger, hidden dragon) this being his first English language movie and maybe not the obvious choice for a 17/18th century period piece.

    Quite enjoyable with solid performances, Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman and Emma herself.

    Went to the cinema last night for first time in 18 months. Small independent place and about 12 people only in there well spaced out. Saw The Father and the acting is sensational, albeit the topic rather thought provoking especially as my old man passed away earlier this year at 92 having suffered from dementia for the last few years.

    Watched "Nobody" this eve starring Bob Odenkirk. Done by the same people that do John Wick. What a cracking film of it's type - really enjoyed it. Great choice of music for the soundtrack. Even better it is not stupidly long either.



    Kermode love it too

    Film from my childhood last night, 'Restless Natives' from 1985, or as i used to call in 'The clown and the wolfman'
    It popped into my head yesterday for some reason, quick search on the sky box and there it was. I was amazed at the picture quality, was expecting something very grainy for 1985, but it looked great
    Good soundtrack by Big Country too
