    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.

    Is that the one set in Alaska? If so then I enjoyed it - not a patch on 28 Days Later, but still far far far better than Twilight.

    If you like films set in snowy remote locations then try Trollhunter. It's in Norwegian with subtitles, and has some shaky handycam work, but is really very good.

    recent films for me:-

    Hacked - Nowtv- its a cross of unfriended/friend request and the strangers (ie the film doesnt give away who the culprits are and they are wearing masks) - thought it was quite good.

    Is this the one where the guy dresses up for his kids birthday but can't get the suit off and turns into a clown?

    I watched Get Out today - extremely creepy at times, but totally enthralling and with a good twist to boot. I'd thoroughly recommend this.

    Note (seemingly for the majority out there alas!): If you don't win you 'lose'. 'Loose' rhymes with 'moose' and is the opposite of 'tight'. Why do so many people get this wrong?

    That's two hours I'm not going to get back! Wish we'd gone to Vue, then I could have left OH to watch it and gone round the outlet village.

    Beauty and The Beast - a great modern day version of the original. I really loved it.

    50 Shades Darker - The first film i didnt pick up on any hints of possible domestic abuse/and definite coercion - in this film its full of it and even worse - its been glamorised and portrayed as being acceptable with the perp being rich and good looking. The producers have clearly tried to make Christian Grey into this poor damaged sole who needs to be protected. However, they failed miserably and instead the coercive and controlling behaviour from Christian Grey is very very apparent.
    As for the film itself - found it a long watch, and uncohesive. I cant even find any positive words for Jamie Dornan

    Passengers.

    I know a few on here have already seen it, but I went into it totally blind, just picked it at random.

    The plot is a little predictable, but the story is well told with a minimal, but strong cast and overall, a good and enjoyable film.

    I went to see Life this afternoon. From seeing the trailer recently I thought 'Ah, this is Alien'. It even had the Ripley character trying to do the containment of the alien. Without wishing to spoil it for anyone, let's just say it's almost Alien to a tee. It's far from original (and I had a feeling about the ending shortly before it was revealed) and listening to 5Live now many have derided it for its lack of originality, but I have to say that I enjoyed it. If you like Sci-Fi then it's worth watching to my mind.

    Just watched Collateral for the first time. A lot of people seem to dislike Tom Cruise but I thought he was charismatic in this. Michael Mann's directing as well, very cool film: 8/10

    Air (Netflix) - A post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller set in a claustrophobic underground bunker where a pair of technicians emerge from stasis for two hours every six months to check whether the air (after some kind of chemical/nuclear/bio war thingy) is breathable yet. It's a low budget film with a few gaping plot-holes, but if you view it as a character study of how people in such circumstances might go stir-crazy then it's well worth a watch.

    If you want to see Tom Cruise as you've never seen him before, then watch Magnolia, which is a marvellous film (that I'm hoping to get around to rewatching soon):

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnolia_(film)

    The main issue I have with Cruise (after his advocacy of Scientology) is his disregard for stage acting (which many see as 'proper' acting). Supposedly he couldn't understand why Nicole Kidman would want to act in a play for £150 a week, rather than in a film for much more. To my mind that is both short-sighted and shallow. If Charlton Heston saw plays as worthwhile (I was lucky enough to see him in A Man For All Seasons about 30 years ago) then everyone should.

    Oh yes, Magnolia was a brilliant film. Cruise was good in it, but the real star was the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
