    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.

    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 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.

It was almost opposite to Prometheus in one respect: Prometheus = wee bit too sparse, A:C = wee bit too busy. I'm going to have to go back and watch it again to work out what the sam-hell was going on.

    LMAO I've sh** harder than Beckham...

    I've just caught Assassins' Creed and was very impressed by Fassbenders' portrayal of Altair.
    When I heard he'd been cast I was at first dubious he could do it but by the gods he did it and then some...

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    The Young Offenders.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4714568/

    Two teenage boys cycle 160km on stolen bikes pursued by police to find a missing bale of cocaine worth 7 million euro. Set around the real event of Ireland's biggest cocaine seizure in 2007 of 440 million euro.

    Very funny.

    Very good and unusual horror film with undertones of racism.

    Imperium (2016) Daniel Radcliffe stars as an undercover FBI agent seeking to infiltrate white supremacist groups. Toni Collette plays his FBI manager. Good within its slightly limited premise & plot. Radcliffe and Collette are strong and work well together.

    (Sky Movies)


    King Arthur (2017) Guy Ritchie directs the classic tale with the pace and style of a gangster movie, but with added mysticism. Good fun with plenty of action, some excellent visuals and none of that tedious "hushed exposition in chambers" stuff that tends to dominate worthier movies of this ilk. The 3D print was slightly dim & muddy.

    (On general cinema release)

    I watched Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge (or Dead Men Tell No Tales depending on where you live) today.

    All I can say about it really is that it passed the time. The plot holes were enormous and it was incredibly derivative (it really has all been done before), but I did laugh in a few places (it has been described as more Carry On than anything else somewhere and I can see that). It was also a little too long. I certainly wouldn't say you must see it and I'm not sure what fans of the series will think. It might be a good thing to take the kids to see during half term, but it's not a given on that score either, as I'm not really sure what the target audience is to be frank.

    Watch out for a cameo appearance by one of the most famous living musicians, if you do go and see it.

    Certainly the format is now starting to creak like a badly maintained Pirate Ship, and the latest haunted crew effect would have been quite spectacular if it wasn't for its 3 or 4 predecessors in earlier PotC films.

    Overall it was entertaining, though it's lost the blockbuster feel and reputation that the franchise once had.

    The baddie in this film (Salazar, played by Javier Bardem) is quite a formidable presence. Also his violence (and that in an extended execution scene) is directed towards real people (as opposed to the robot/zombie/alien victims in other franchises). As such, whilst it is a 12A certificate, it may be unsuitable for impressionable younger children.

    I saw the second Guardians of the Galaxy and thought it was really good.
    I never thought I'd be into the marvel type movies but I enjoyed the special effects and the humour

    I watched Baywatch today.

    I never saw the TV series, so cannot compare the movie to this. I have to say, as cheesy as it was, I enjoyed it and laughed a few times, especially at the self-deprecating elements. It also made a point of not just having sexy women rescued and not everyone was beautiful. Pamela Anderson has a cameo at the end and looks awful (she's been under the knife far too many times by the look of it), which is a shame and David Hasselhoff also makes yet another cameo, after his recent appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2.

    At just shy of two hours it was about 30 minutes too long in my view, but I would say to give it a go if you think it might be your cup of tea. There is also plenty of flesh for both men and women to enjoy!

    The Conjuring and its sequel The Conjuring 2

    Don't usually like horror films, although the first film felt more like a thriller than a horror,but really enjoyed both films, very scary in parts.

    Enjoyed the second film more though.

    It's about the Enfield Haunting during the 70's.where a local family experience paranormal activity and enlist the help of paranormal
    investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren who are also in the first film

    There's another sequel planned for next year, The Nun, hope it's as good!
