    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.

    I saw Alien: Covenant today.

    Mark Kermode really tore into it on 5Live today, but I have to say I enjoyed it. I thought it wasn't as good as Alien or Aliens (which would be really difficult), but a lot better than all the other films in the franchise.

    Tonight the whole family watched A Monster Calls on DVD. It's a really moving fantasy and I'd recommend it. It's made me want to watch Pan's Labyrinth again, although I'm not sure the rest of the family will want to watch something with subtitles (which is a shame).

    An unusual take on the zombie/ vampire apocalypse genre. Nice and gory with some irreverent humour and some very touching, sad scenes. I liked it but wouldn't recommend watching in the dark when you can't sleep.

    We went to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 on the 1st May bank holiday weekend, and I really enjoyed it- perhaps not quite as much as the first film, but it was a great mix of action, humour and a certain amount of pathos.

    I went to see Miss Sloane today. I thought it was a slick political thriller and really cleverly done. Basically if you liked The West Wing (which I loved) then I think this would be right up your street. Recommended.

    I saw King Arthur: Legend of the Sword today. It looks like it is going to flop very badly, but I thought it was enjoyable enough and will be interested to hear what other think about it. Jude Law obviously liked playing the baddie and the way the narrative of Arthur from boy to man was told was done very well (not quite as good as Peter's Friends with Tears For Fears' Everybody Wants to Rule the World, but still clever) and some other good narrative devices were employed.

    There are a couple of actors from Game of Thrones in it and ironically Katy McGrath (Morgana in BBC's Merlin) has a small part in it.
