    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.

    The Conjuring 2 - Based on the Enfield Haunting. Preferred the TV programme from a couple of years back ( although in the grand scheme of things it wasnt too bad)

    Spotlight , journalists uncovering - after a real story. Very good, on prime

    Captain FantasticHome educating dad has to take his kids from the wilderness into the real world. Could have been made on cheap laughs but it is a really good film, funny and sad with a strong message about values. Cinema

    Julieta by Almodovar. Spanish with subtitles. Family drama. I always enjoy his films, little art pieces in a very particular style. Cinema

    Dont Blink - Now TV - seriously no idea what was happening in this film? Thought it was a bit strange but enjoyable enough.

    Pandemic - NowTV - apocalyptic zombie film . Some blood and guts. Not too bad.

    Just watched "Human Centipede 3", I knew what to expect after having seen 1 & 2, but still there were a couple of little sick bits in it, that I didn't like seeing.

    The Accountant I saw a preview last night, its full release date is 4th Nov, and it's one of the best films I've seen this year. There are points where it strays a little bit into cliche but mostly it's well written, well acted and, despite nearly a 2 hour running time, it flew by.

    War on Everyone - a curious hotch-potch of style and content. What could have been a brave noir-cop-buddy-comedy doesn't quite work as any of those things.

    Strange to see BFI funding, too.

    Similar to this, but (way) better: The Guard (2011)

    Watched XL a subtitled Icelandic film about a politician and his hedonism. Fun to watch, and quirky.

    Currently watching Shadow Walkers. Couldn't get into it at first, but enjoying so far.

    We eventually managed to use our new meerkats concession this week. Just managed to catch The Magnificent Seven.

    I loved it. It wasn't well-reviewed but we thought it was a good, old-fashioned western. Great bit where Denzel, galloping madly, slips to the horse's side and continues shooting.

    I watched Philomena (2013 movie) tonight, based on the true story of a woman (played by Judi Dench) whose son was forcibly taken from her in the 1950s as a single mother in Ireland and her search for him 50 years later. A really moving film, which won't make those of us who have a negative view of the Catholic Church feel any different about it.

    It was also interesting to see Steve Coogan in a serious role for a change. Recommended.

    Liked the bit nearer the end with the one who liked doing card tricks.

    Saw a film on Nflix last night, we are Nflix virgins, it's all new to us this modern technology,liking it so far.
    The film was called "unleashed", wasn't too bad, it was watchable.

    Loads of stuff on there, aint there, I would rather watch old B movies than a lot of these Saturday night rigged & scripted shows, that try to con the viewers into thinking it is all real.

    Green Room (2015)


    Not too bad with tense moments & some violence.


    Nice to see Patrick Stewart

    Bit chaotic

    The Girl on the Train - Hard work, but good. Emily Blunt is exceptionally good in full-on break down mode.

    Trolls - Too cute for words. (Although the basic premise is surprisingly dark).

    Saw The Witch and The Forest, both 99p rentals, both ok but a bit mediocre. Worth watching but not as good as I'd hoped. Then bought the digital version of Labyrinth for £4.99 which I adore.
