    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 went to see Wonder Woman today. It's fine (better than Pirates and King Arthur), but nothing special to my mind and is about 30 minutes too long. The lead (Gal Gadot) is gorgeous, but a very poor actor in my view.

    Saying that, I seem to be in a minority with regards to both the quality of the film and Gadot's acting:

    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!

    Watched Snowden this afternoon. Really enjoyed it and gained more of an insight into why he turned whistleblower.

    Tonight the whole family watched Hunt for the Wilderpeople. It's the highest-ever grossing New Zealand film and is really good viewing for the whole family, with plenty of laughs mixed in with the drama. Recommended.

    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).

    After my review last month I was able to pick up a trilogy of Guillermo del Toro movies, including Pan's Labyrinth, for only £2 (bargain!) and have watched them all over the past week.

    Cronos is about the age-old quest for eternal life, naturally including the baddie who wants this at all costs. It's an interesting film and well worth seeing.

    Better still is The Devil's Backbone, a creepy old-style ghost story, set in Spain towards the end of the civil war.

    The absolute classic, though, is Pan's Labyrinth. I'd forgotten how violent it was, so it wouldn't be suitable for the whole family to watch. It really is a wonderful film and for it not to get a nomination for Best Film (only for Best Film in a Foreign Language, which it didn't even win) just shows how narrow-minded the Oscar judges are (somehow no foreign-language film has ever managed to win the Best Picture Oscar!). It has impressive performances all round, not least the young girl who plays the lead. If you haven't seen this movie, you really should, as it is top notch.

    Continuing my trawl through charity shop DVDs: Oblivion featuring Tom Cruise.



    Enjoyed it. An original story, good special effects, wee bit cheezy. 8/10

    Just finished watching A Cure for Wellness.

    Really, really good movie in all respects and it has Celia Imrie, so what's not to like.
    Reminded me of a few of my favourite classics movies. Well worth watching.

    I saw that last weekend, too. It was okay - I enjoyed it within its own slightly weird limitations. But one thing is really bugging me - who are the intended audience/demographic?

    For anyone who hasn't seen it, it has a long preamble set in a female-dominated, ancient Greece style community (this is the back-story of Diana Prince).

    Then on into a very well put together WW1 scenario based around Chris Pine's pilot-spy character. Playing somewhat fast and loose with historical facts, the movie heads off into supernatural territory for the final reel. It's certainly not a family film (very little there for children).

    AEON FLUX (2005)

    Despite the bad reviews I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

    Some good action moves and visuals.

    Not original or big plot.

    I took my daughter to see The Boss Baby over half term, fully expecting it to be truly awful. I actually quite enjoyed it - a few genuine laugh-out-loud moments. The plot is ludicrous, but the voice acting is great (Alec Baldwin, I think), and the animation is what you'd expect these days.
