    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.

    Just seen Blade Runner 2049. Blooming masterpiece but bring a cushion to sit on as it's about three years long.

    You feel lots of flashbacks to the original plus there's lots to take in about the years between the events. It feels like a very deep movie, and the visuals are stunning. If the first one bored you, I wouldn't race to see the sequel.

    For me, I'm really glad I saw it; it was really rewarding.

    I started to watch Dumb and Dumber To last night. Very stupid, but I did laugh a few times.

    We've just splashed out and bought an OLED 4K TV - so tonight we will be watching Guardians of the Galaxy 2 in 4K. I've seen it before but not for a while. Today I replenished our Pringle supply in anticipation...

    Bone Tomahawk - really unusual take on a classic western theme and it's got Kurt Russell. What's not to like?

    I recorded Cat's Eye last night, I haven't seen that in years. I hope I still think it is good when I watch it.

    The original is one of my guilty pleasures.

    Finally watched T2 : Trainspotting 2, Didn't watch it before because I didn't want to be disappointed by it, it was well worth the wait.

    Blade Runner 2049. Fabulous. The director appears to be a huge fan of the original based on the care with which he constructed the sequel, and it really benefits. None of the Marvel massive action sequences (I like Marvel, but their approach would have been so wrong for this), but a thoughtful and thought provoking piece of scifi, very faithful to the original in feel.

    I loved it, in case anyone is in any doubt

    t2 trainspotting. It’s ok but nothing special. It feels like a where are they now documentary. Not as good as the original.

    The Ridiculous 6 (Netflix). Do. Not. Bother. Offensive and purile in every possible way. Is also one of the few films to receive a 0% score on Rotten Tonatoes.

    The Snowman - gripping but gory serial killer thriller. Set in Norway with an excellent international cast.

    Power Rangers - Fairly low-brow but I enjoyed it. And my daughter who is a Power Rangers nut loved it.

    Alien: Covenant - A significant improvement on Prometheus although still not a patch on the original Alien. Certainly worth seeing though.

    Blade Runner: 2049 - Exceptional in every way. It might be heresy but I preferred it to the original (which I re-watched last week). It certainly captures the feel of the original, and the plot is certainly better - and the cast is uniformly excellent. Plenty of questions are still left unanswered (the biggest of which is whether Deckard is a replicant or not). Maybe in another 30 years there'll be another sequel...
