    I recommend "Danny The Champion Of The World"

    This film is really good and with some excellent actors. We read the book @ school and it was lovely to recall the memories of the book with the movie.

    Room (after the book) and Wild Tales (Spanish, subtitled), on prime.
    The movies could not be more different, I enjoyed them both hugely!

    Hell or High Water An excellent "modern Western" in which an aging Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) pursues two young bank robbers through poverty-stricken West Texas.


    The Magnificent Seven Adequate remake of the classic Western, with Denzel Washington. Peter Saarsgard makes an excellent Bad Guy.

    Was spoiled slightly for me by the picture being too far zoomed-in. (Thanks Cineworld).

    Last night I needed something mindless and a bit shoot-em-up, just to stop my brain from turning over and over so I watched

    Command Kill.

    Just what I needed. Watchable.

    After sending this clip round at work as a joke (one of my favourite movie moments)




    I thought I'd re-watch the whole film.

    I'd forgotten just how good it was: funny, sad, uplifting, to name just three attributes. It also had some great performances by the leads and, of course, perhaps the funniest quote about women ever:



    Well worth seeing (again) and so much better than Titanic, which somehow won the Best Picture award that year (the marvellous L.A. Confidential was also apparently not as good as the winner either!).

    Quite an accurate review, but all you could have just said that Malcolm MacDowell is in it.

    Spidernick, I do like As Good As it Gets. My favourite is when he introduces Carol to Simon with "Carol the waitress, Simon the fag".

    Bearable but soooo long.

    Free State of Jones Outstanding - a genuinely watchable and compelling historical film. Matthew McConaughey is perfect for the role of Newton Knight - a man who led a rebellion against the Confederacy during the US civil war.

    The Girl with all the Gifts After all the hype, I have to say that I found this a little disappointing. It's just another Zombie movie - a British one, yes, but lacking anything more than that to make it stand out from the now massive Zombie oeuvre.

    Like The Magnificent Seven, above, my viewing was slightly distracted by questionable Cinema presentation choices - in this case the painfully loud soundtrack.

    Had a huge film session Sunday. Among them some obscure titles, plus a couple I really enjoyed.

    Sightseers - seen before and loved, really dark humour, with bizarre comic moments
    The Green Inferno - Gruesome with a few bits of strange humour. Worth watching, but the ending was a bit puzzling
    Only Lovers Left Alive - Great film, brilliant soundtrack, cool looking. Again seen before but worth seeing again.
    Mindscape - Excellent
    Alleluia - Really bizarre, strangely watchable, although the characters were horrible. Let down by the ending. Think more about style than substance.

    Can't remember the others. We were recovering from a night out!

    Life Animated - I was lucky to get to see a preview of this in an exclusive club. It's a documentry about a boy (now man) who has autism and he understands the world through disney movies, his whole family is featured and talk about their struggles as well as his. Very touching yet inspiring. It's out around December.

    The girl on the train - As I've recently read the book, watching the movie is not the same as I knew exactly what was about to happen. Still worth watching though.

    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Amazon Instant rental). This really is a mash up of a gentile English period drama and a slasher zombie film. If you're not convinced then I can confirm it's great fun. The highlight is Matt Smith as the bumbling Mr Collins. The plot follows P&P pretty closely for the first 2/3 and then goes all apocalyptic, but it has got everything, including the delicious marriage proposals and rejections, and kick-a-ss fighting. Highly recommended but not for the kids.

    Kung Fu Panda 3 (Amazon Instant rental): Not quite as good as the previous 2 but still hilarious and with stunning animation.
