    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.

    Wonder Woman (2017)


    Not too bad though wasn't what I was expecting.


    Funny moments when shopping etc.


    Gal Gadot plays an impressive part and Chris Pine good too.


    Some good action though some zzz moments

    I watched Jigsaw tonight. It was quite a let down but then again I wasn't expecting it to be brilliant as it is the 8th one and as you know, most sequels are bad anyway.

    Yesterday I saw Thor: Rasgnarok which was very enjoyable with some good laugh-out loud moments.

    Today I saw Geostorm, which was enjoyable nonsense, if you turn your brain off for a couple of hours!

    Earlier in the week I picked up the DVD of Death Wish, which I hadn't seen for a while. It was good and features a very young Jeff Goldblum (who is also in the Thor movie above).
    'I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my father. Not screaming and terrified like his passengers.' (Bob Monkhouse).

    Sky? Believe in better.

    Note: win, draw or lose (not 'loose' - opposite of tight!)

    I watched Earthquake on the TV last weekend, when I went to see it as a youth with the Sensearound effects I thought it was brilliant, now I realise what a pile of rubbish it is It was appalling....

    The Death of Stalin - Surreal black comedy by Armando Iannucci. Actually quite enjoyable in its own dark way.

    Went to see Murder On The Orient Express. If you've never seen an earlier version, TV adaptation, or read the book, then you might enjoy it. But the 1974 film was far better IMO with a truly star studded cast.

    LaLa Land

    Finally saw this on Netflix after missing it at the cinema

    Well it was worth the wait , I loved it,especially the music.

    Ryan Gosling is excellent and his dancing is a dream.

    Emma Stone is just as good and a great match for Gosling, I loved her singing

    It's gorgeous,funny,classy,heartwrenching and a joy to watch, I certainly will be watching it again
    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

    Paddington 2 - Utterly charming sequel involving the CGI bear. Great for kids (probably 5+) and for adults with a healthy sense of whimsy.

    A fantastic and huge cast - maybe 10% of all British comedy actors are here.

    Justice League. Enjoyable movie, fast paced and coherent, script decent enough, not too serious, lots of action sequences. Certainly worth the ticket to go see.

    But the CGI is 'off' by a large margin, Steppenwolf looks like a CGI character from 2000's (I'm thinking Scorpion King bad), Supermans CGI lip syncing is really obvious (why they couldn't just bung Cavill a few million to shave off his moustache for the reshoots than to digitally remove it, I don't know).

    It doesn't spoil the movie but I guess they'd spent so much on it already, they probably couldn't afford another 4-5 months post production and another £10m or so on getting the bad guy photorealistic.

    Anger ruins joy, it steals the goodness of my mind. Forces me to say terrible things. Overcoming anger brings peace of mind, a mind without regret. If I overcome anger, I will be delightful and loved by everyone.

    The Snowman was good, a decent adaptation of Jo Nesbo's book.

    We dithered between Battle of the Sexes and Suburbivon this week.

    Suburbicon won: it was awful, a very unpleasant feeling throughout. As satire it works, but makes for uncovirwing.

    Watched 'Stronger' - the new Jake Gyllenhaal movie based on a true story about a guy who lost both legs from the boston marathon bombings.


    It was good, superb acting from all the cast (including the real life medics who played themselves). The film was more of a love story.

    Battle of the Sexes this week. Very good indeed!

    The real fight for equal treatment of women tennis players by Billie Jean King and the challenge from Bobby Riggs.

    It had its serious side, but was very funny, too.
