    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.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp - at the more frivolous end of Marvel films, with good pace and action scenes. Full of anty goodness and other scenes with ludicrously mixed scales.

    Extinction - another of those films dropped by a studio and picked up by Netflix. It's a sci-Fi alien invasion film by the same writer as Arrival (although not quite in the same league), and with a pretty decent twist about half way through. Also notable for having Hispanic leads, for those interested in diversity. Well worth a watch.

    Ready Player One (2018)

    Excellent, enjoyable, refreshing film


    Excellent effects and use of VR.


    One of the contests game system and some characters along the way

    Great cast

    Ready Player One - a fantabulous film in every way. The film that Valerian was trying to be. You also need to keep your eyes peeled because the film is crammed with pop culture references. I particularly loved the Delorean.

    Thanks for that recommendation. I had seen the trailer previously and wasn't going to bother watching it, but did this afternoon following your post and am glad I did. Even with being forewarned about the twist, I didn't figure out what it was, and I am usually quite good with those.

    We watched Baby Driver again tonight. Great film with a great soundtrack.

    My mum also forced me to watch the original Mamma Mia. It was quite fun but the plot was paper thin and a lot of the singing was utterly terrible (in particular Pierce Brosnan). I can see why people like it but it's not really by cuppa.

    I needed a comedy, but this was puerile.

    It was actually horrible. Lots of obvious, and detailed, sex, but crude and blatant with absolutely no romance or tenderness.

    Very few laughs.

    Brigsby Bear - a young man with a complex backstory [spoilers] tackles his future life by taking on the task of completing a kids TV series that has been his permanent companion.

    Charming, quirky comedy-drama with cameos by Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear, Claire Danes and Andy Samberg.

    Death Wish (2018)

    Enjoyable film though 'Bronson' (Original D.W.) is the master.

    Bit slow to start, though love the action when it got going!

    Coco - truly excellent Pixar film. Exceptional in every way. Great animation, brilliant heart-warming story, lovely music, diverse cast. See it.

    Terminal (Amazon Prime) - A confusing and bizarre attempt at film noir starring Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, Mike Myers and Dexter Fletcher. It's a sort of cross between Blade Runner and Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, but nowhere near as good as either. Robbie tries her hardest and steals every scene she's in but I found the convoluted plot very hard to follow. The film is best described as a "revenge thriller" but once you figure out who is getting revenge on who you've kind of stopped caring. It looks great though.

    A Quiet Place - A genuinely scary thriller about monsters who are blind but have exceptional hearing, and so the only way humans can survive is by being near silent. Starring Emily Blunt and her real-life husband (who also directs). Don't watch it with the dish washer running because much of the film is silent.

    Tower Heist (Netflix) - A comedy heist film from 2011 starring Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick and Eddie Murphy. Stiller plays the manager of an exclusive tower block (think Trump Tower)when the owner tries to run away with the pension fund of all the employees (among with other assets that the FBI are trying to get back). Stiller and a bunch of the usual misfits plots an elaborate scheme to steal $20m from a safe in the penthouse where the owner is being held under house arrest. Great fun in an undemanding way.
