    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.

    What Happened to Monday (Netflix).


    An enjoyable sci-fi set an a dystopian future where population has got out of control and a one-child policy is strictly enforced - and additional children are cryogenically frozen.


    Noomi Rapace plays seven identical sisters named for the days of the week - and they each can only go out into the world on their own name day. It's no Orphan Black but the film is enjoyable enough - although perhaps a bit more could have been made of the concept. Rapace does well enough with the material given to her, and manages to create distinct personalities for all her incarnations. Wilem Dafoe also stars in the flash-back scenes as the girls' grandfather tasked with bringing them up and keeping them safe from the authorities who would take most of them away given half a chance.

    The Curse of Robert the Doll (2016)


    Not too bad though needed a bit more killer doll action


    Liked most of the characters (cleaners, younger security guard esp.)


    Some intrigue and suspense in the mix


    This film precedes The Toymaker

    Last night I felt very old, as I watched the 40th anniversary reissue of Close Encounters of the Third Kind at my local cinema (I'm fairly sure I went to the cinema to see the original). It's still a great film and I enjoyed seeing it again. I think it was supposed to be 4K, but the picture didn't seem that crystal clear to me.

    Saw Victoria & Abdul (2017) last week, I was pleasantly surprised. Judi Dench gave a stellar performance as Victoria and Eddie Izzard was brilliant as Victoria's son, Bertie. Would highly recommend, not just one for OAP's - there were plenty of laughs :-)

    ISTR the first one being not as silly or as tedious as this one, but I could be wrong. I'd forgotten how much I disliked the main man, "Iggy", and without plenty of Colin Firth to tone him down, he was smirking and gurning all over the place.

    As for the stream of celebs apparently queuing up to play roles, it all seems very strange. The Elton John cameo was particularly ill-advised IMHO.

    I can see what they were aiming for - an uber-violent version of Austin Powers, but it couldn't have ever worked.

    The Nice Guys

    Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, as a mismatched pair of private eyes, investigate a missing girl and the death of a porn star.

    Bromance buddy film set in the 70's, very funny at times and Crowe and Gosling work well as a duo

    Loved it
    And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth

    When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
    Please know that you were mine as well

    Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
    And spread out into shapes like
    Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

    We watched a mad film on Netflix last night, it was a spanish film with subtitles, "The Bar", it was pretty funny.

    The night before, we watched a really stupid film but it had some funny bits in it, "Head Gone".

    While hardly new (and good luck finding it) Eyes Beyond Seeing is a wonderful, original, beautifully written and acted independent film about a mental patient who thinks he's Jesus (OK, not original so far) who helps his psychologist rediscover his faith. I managed to get hold of a copy so it is possible...

    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    Flatliners (2017) - it's rarely the case that we actually NEED a remake of a classic movie, and this is no exception. It's still a fun, near-deathy romp, though.

    General release at cinemas.

    I watched Bridge of Spies yesterday and I really liked it. Tom Hanks was in the lead role and I find him to be one of the greatest actors. I found this movie on https://loadtv.info/ltv/films/ as this source always provides me with the latest films and TV shows. I should say, this movie is brilliant and very interesting. I hope it will help someone to enjoy the evening!

    American Assassin was this week's choice. It was quite exciting and political, although violent.
