    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.

    Hehe, while I was watching I was impressed by Amy's meticulous and calculative planning. I even caught myself saying 'you go girl' a couple of times

    I'm not a film fan, can't sit more than an hour. But I started watching the Bette Davis/Joan Crawford film 'Whatever Happened to Baby Jane' while I was wrapping Christmas presents a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. It reminded me of my Mum who used to watch all the Bette Davis in the 1960's when we were kids.

    Then for Christmas I was given a boxed set of Alfred Hitchcock films which I'm sure I will enjoy.

    I once saw Psycho and also the one with all the pigeons but I just could not overcome the 'special effects' - gosh it just looks too fake!!


    I did once see 'strangers on a train' as a play in the westend and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Iíll say one thing for the old films, at least they didnít drag on for hours. Most were around 70-90 mins long, perfect if youíre a bit of a fidget....like me and Ericís Mum!

    The Dark Tower. What a steaming pile of turd. Way to go destroying one of the greatest fantasy series of all time. Idris Elba does his best but nothing can save this. The story bears only passing resemblance to the books. Read them instead and give this a miss.

    A Prophet - A young Arab goes to prison and is forced under the orders of a Corsican gang lord.

    Very good, quite violent and a tad sensitive.

    English subtitles and languages spoken are Arabic, French and Corsican.

    It is a World Film recorded from Channel 4 on my planner from 2012.

    I watched The Greatest Showman yesterday.


    I really enjoyed it. It's a musical (I didn't know that beforehand).

    Kobo and the Two Strings.

    Great animation, good story, very bittersweet and thoughtful. I really liked the way that the characters subtly drew on Japanese mythology in their costumes as well as the more obvious references. And the shamisen playing was very good (nice surprise cover on the end titles as well - one of my favourite songs of all time).

    Not as good as Ghibli at its best, as they can break your heart every time you watch them, but a damn good attempt.

    Synchronicity.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzz

    Sussed out the entire thing after waking up after the interminable exposition at the beginning about 3 seconds and then exercised my right of escape after hearing them talk about a special 'Dallia' three times, as I didn't think the OH would be particularly keen upon my bellowing at the screen 'It's a ****ing Dahlia, probably Imperial Wine, you ****ing morons' and hurling a copy of Gardeners' World Magazine at the telly.

    The Great Showman last week. Very enjoyable, great fun and good music.

    Hostiles today. A realistic look at the US in the 19th century. Excellent plot, but marred by mumbling dialogue.
