    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.

    Dances with wolves is a great film. I dont think white saviour is the heart of the story. I think it's about friendship.

    Onlyroz,


    There's no 'perhaps' about it. To say a film you have never seen is 'rubbish' is a bit poor in my book, especially given the fact in won the Best Picture Oscar. You really should watch it, including for the wonderful soundtrack.

    Perhaps I was wrong to say rubbish. I've not actually seen Dances with Wolves but I have seen Avatar and Pocahontas and The Last Samurai. They're all enjoyable films but they are most certainly patronising towards the culture into which the noble white man is sent. The Great Wall, while not an amazing film, doesn't wall into that category.

    I havent seen the Great Wall.

    I was an avid watcher of 'Film xx' when he was presenter and I think he was in part responsible for my love of film and taught me about the different aspects to appreciate.

    Yesterday I watched 'Colossal.'

    Certainly a brash mix of genres but brilliantly done IMHO. Very entertaining and Anne Hathaway was just as alluring as ever.

    Had a bit of a movie weekend,

    Okja,
    Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend - a massive animal named Okja.
    Loved it, was not expecting it at all.

    The Circle,
    A woman lands a dream job at a powerful tech company called the Circle, only to uncover an agenda that will affect the lives of all of humanity.
    Could easily have been an episode of Black Mirror.

    Wonder Woman,
    Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war, discovering her full powers and true destiny.
    Loved it and Gal Gadot is stunning.

    Morgan
    A corporate risk-management consultant must decide whether or not to terminate an artificially created humanoid being.
    A bit dull to be honest.

    Bokeh
    On a romantic getaway to Iceland, a young American couple wake up one morning to discover every person on earth has disappeared. Their struggle to survive and to reconcile the mysterious event lead them to reconsider everything they know about themselves and the world.
    Visually stunning but very dull and goes nowhere.

    Power Rangers

    A group of high-school students, who are infused with unique superpowers, harness their abilities in order to save the world.
    Fun and surprisingly enjoyable.

    Shimmer Lake
    An inventive crime thriller told backwards -- reversing day by day through a week -- following a local sheriff's quest to unlock the mystery of three small town criminals and a bank heist gone wrong.
    Complete crap, gave up after 45 minutes.

    Mr Right
    A girl falls for the "perfect" guy, who happens to have a very fatal flaw: he's a hitman on the run from the crime cartels who employ him.
    Very enjoyable, one of Anna Kendriks better films.

    Last night I watched Baby Driver.

    The trailer for this film seemed to have been doing the rounds for months and I wasn't inclined to go and see it. However, the reviews were so good I decided to do so and am glad I did. It's a good story, but the highlight is the good effect to which the music was used - recommended.

    Last night I watched a late showing of Spiderman: Homecoming. It's very different to your standard Spiderman film. Again it was much better than the trailer suggested (could this be a theme?). I thought it was very enjoyable (it was good not to spend time going through the origins scenes and the loss of Peter's uncle) and would recommend it, not just to fans of the Marvel films.

    Seen both of those and agree with your recommendations.

    Also, I saw It Comes in the Night today, and it's a grim, gritty, suspenseful post-apocalyptic thriller/horror (with very little gore). It's unusually quiet and lacking in gimmicks.

    Synopsis: A family deal with the realities of living in an (unspecified) post-apocalyptic/post-plague woodland environment.

    I saw Baby Driver last week. Going to see it again tomorrow. I just love Edgar Wright's stuff and this was even better than his usual. You always notice more stuff going on every time you watch his films.

    I saw Spider-Man - The Homecoming on Friday. It wasn't my choice of film but I preferred it to all the other Spider-Man films - there's more humour in it for one.

    Yesterday my daughter was taking the grandsons to see Spiderman and my granddaughter was upset as she didn't want to see it and wanted to see Despicable Me 3 instead. Her Grandad would normally have taken her, but he was getting his hair cut so I took her instead.

    I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as i've not seen the previous Despicable Me films, but I did.

    Go see it! I love going to the cinema but to be honest films often have boring bits in them. I sometimes want to sleep lol but there wasn't one minute where I wasn't interested in this one. I bought the soundtrack and i've pre-ordered it on blu-ray already

    I watched a film last night, it really brought tears to my eyes.
    It was called Seven Pounds, it had Will Smith in it..
    I really enjoyed it.
    4371/3 =1457.. some people won't accept that though.
