    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.

    Beauty and the beast 3d starring emma watson. Very enjoyable despite being a musical. The 3d is really good. The ending gives an odd disappointment because the characters are more likeable cursed.

    The Equaliser

    Well, half of it very strangely. After enjoying The Equaliser 2, I spotted and recorded the original some weeks ago. As often happens, the showing was in two parts, with the news in between.

    We decided to watch it last night and kept waiting for the titles. Nope. Enjoyed it anyway and it had clearly ended.

    Of course, I thought I tapped the wrong recording, but I hadn't. The damn thing was in the wrong order.

    An eye for an eye.


    Documentary on amazon prime. About a white supremicist from Texas who, after 9/11, went on a shooting spree to kill anyone who looked 'arab'.


    He was caught and sentenced with capital punishment.


    One guy he shot survived, and the film maker (who looks and sounds 'arab') got to know him and over the course of the film they built a relationship. Slowly this purpetrator became educated and changed his views. The victim campaigned hard to save his life.


    I found it very moving and humbling.

    "Roman J. Israel, Esq" is a decent film! Fairly recent and relatively low budget, but has some good plot points.

    Three Identical Strangers


    My goodness, this is definitely one of the best documentaries I've ever seen.


    Triplets who were adopted into 3 separate families and did not know about each other (neither did their adoptive parents) found one another by sheer coincidence.


    Then they, along with their adoptive parents wanted answers from the adoption agency and what unravels from then on is very dark, disturbing, tragic and sad.

    Robin Hood (2018) - a curious dog's dinner of a movie. It's fast-paced with some great action sequences. The bits between the action involve various plausible political intrigues. The cast members often seem to have a lack of consistency on their interpretation of the material, though - badly so. There is also a contradiction between a strong US cast (Jamie Foxx and F Murray Abraham), an "up and coming" UK cast including Taron Egerton and a couple of random Australians for the mix (Tim Minchin (yes, the comedy musician), and Ben Mendelsohn who reprises his previous roles as "evil ruler #1" (Ready Player One, Star Wars: Rogue One,...). There are also some huge liberties taken with the historic detail (arrow machine-guns anyone?) and some massive nods to all sorts of credible reference material (Assassins' Creed, Crouching Tiger..., The Matrix, V for Vendetta, etc. etc.).

    With hindsight, what I really wanted to see was the film that Jamie Foxx thought he was in (now that would be great).


    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - You can't help but love the animation, with its massive deference to its "comic-book" origins. Bit light on plot, though - certainly not enough material for its nearly 2 hour run-time. Looks great in 3D, although some of the stylistic touches look too much like 3D artefacts and overall many of the scenes are too dark once filtered-down by the 3D glasses.

    Tickled.


    Watched this on Amazon Prime over the xmas period. A new Zealand journalist comes across a youtube video of a guy who gets tickled by other guys and is surprised this was a hit on youtube so he writes to the media company behinds this to find out more and gets a very rude an insulting response which triggers his curiosity more on this.


    He investigates further and uncovers a disturbing world behind this.

    Bird Box on Netflix.

    It was alright, Sandra Bullock is really good though. It's better than The Happening, which isn't saying much I know, but not as good as A Quiet Place.

    The Red Pill


    Real eye opening documentary about men’s rights activists. The film maker is a female who claimed to be a feminist. After talking to some men, who gives some real hard hitting facts and accounts, started to see (along with the viewer) how much injustice men face just for being a man, and how disposable their lives are regarded. They are expected to die in combat, more die in the work place, more die by suicide, lack of help support and resources are given to issues that affect men such as domestic violence and homelessness, automatically lose out on reproductive and parental rights, serve longer jail time for the same crime and those are just a few things. It also looks into paternity fraud and laws around this almost always favour the women.


    I find it heart breaking. I’m glad I’m not a man.

    Peter rabbit.
    I thought it was a bit twisted for a film about fluffy bunnies targeted at kids. For example the humans are actual actors. One of these has a heart attack and dies. its not played for laughs and yet the hero dances about laughing. What effect is this odd scene going to have on young kids. Then later the bunnies do all types of violence towards a man and again its mostly not done in a humourous way, electrocuting etc.
    Overall the film is an ok watch but nothing special.

    Rampage.
    Far fetched action movie with big monsters. This is much more fun than other recent big monster movies, godzilla, pacific rim. Worth a watch.

    The Favourite - Audacious and quirky Queen Anne bio-pic. The three-way tension between ailing Queen Anne (Olivia Coleman), the Duchess of Marlborough (Rachel Weisz) and upstart-in-court Abigail Hill (Emma Stone) is finely detailed and at times darkly visceral.

    On general release.

    (15) Cert for very strong language and (implied) sexual content.
