    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.

    Ready Player One. Its fast moving, mix of live action and CGI sequences. Not read the book which I suspect has more meat and deep meaning to it, but the film is what cinema exists for - likable characters, a bad guy, a hero and I think the most number of 1980's references in any movie - Kong, De Loreans, Freddie Kruger, a clever sequences involving The Shining movie. Its' vacuous but fun.
    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.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

    Some reasonable action though not enough

    touching moments

    Great teamwork with mate


    Didnít think it sat 100% with Marvel

    Ghost Stories - a very good British horror movie. I won't give anything away, but the fact that it is co-written by Jeremy Dyson (of A League of Gentlemen fame) should give you an indication that all is not quite as it seems. Highly recommended.

    Rampage - very silly, but great fun. I took one of my boys to see it and he enjoyed it.
    '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 remember when you would see movies on planes that hadn't yet been released in the UK. Now, you get classics like the Sound of Music!

    A Quiet Place - novel horror directed by and starring John Krakowski (The Office USA). It's good, {Slight SPOILER}though I think a more Earthly foe would have worked better than the Aliens{/SPOILER} they chose.

    Blockers - three parents conspire to protect their daughters on Prom Night. Funny in parts with gross-out moments and an inevitable "serious message" ending.

    Both: Cinema release.

    Blockers is the classic example where the film company does itself zero favours with the trailer (ditto Baby Driver last year, but there are plenty of others, where the aim seems to be to put you off seeing the movie!). Whenever I saw the trailer I thought the film looked completely naff and one to avoid, but I watched it today as the reviews were good. I'm glad I did, as it is very very funny and is well worth seeing.

    Wonder - a feel-good film about a boy born with facial deformities and how he gets on when he starts school. He has to deal with bullies but manages to make some friends too. The film also gives the stories of his sister (who is generally ignored by their parents) and by his friend (who initially only makes friends because he is told to). I enjoyed it - won't be everyone's cup of tea. There are zero explosions, but solid performances all round.

    Paddington 2 - if you enjoyed the first one then you'll like this. I didn't think it was quite as good as the first but still very enjoyable and stunningly animated. Hugh Grant plays an excellent villain and there are also some fun supporting performances from Brendan Gleason, Hugh Bonneville etc.

    The Secret of Kells - superb illustrations and animation.

    Ghost Stories is really shocking (and good)!
    It's like watching a whole season of "Inside Number Nine" on steroids!

    Annihilation (no UK-cinema release, but available on Netflix): A really intelligent SF movie directed by Alex Garland (who wrote the novel The Beach, as well as 28 Days Later and directed Ex Machina). If you like Arrival then you should like this.

    I watched Darkest Hour on a plane and I have to say it was excellent and a superb performance by Gary Oldman as Churchill. It makes you realise just how close Britain came to trying to appease Hitler and strike a deal.
    On the same flight I also watched Dunkirk which was also impressive and the two tied together quite well. It is quite remarkable what this Country did in the Second World War.

    Quite. To add, whilst that is history now (yet we are forced to remember many areas of more ancient history), yet many people take immense pleasure in running this great country down. Sad. The persons and their viewpoints.

    Fantastic film.
