Review the most recent film you've seen

This was definitely not "most excellent". It was, in fact, a mess.

Was going to watch this but I've read nothing but poor reviews.

My dad tells me the times were bleak but I was struck by the brightly coloured puppets and can't help but think that it was cheerier than I've been led to believe.

Michael Caine as usual was Michael Caine, his natural urge to punish us all with his right wing views were tempered by the disabled Tiny Tim whose problems must have stemmed from the removal of school milk I'd heard to much about.

Overall I give it 4.8753333 out of 5, I can't help think that it would have benefitted from direction by Ken Loach and have been up there with I Daniel Blake.


Thank you. Not a lot of people knew that

King Charles III




Been meaning to watch this for ages, Tim Pigott-Smith gives an amazing performance.

Saw Charles III when it was first out. I know the critics got wet over it but I found it contrived, stilted and, honestly, a little boring.

I can summarise by saying this: if you love going to the theatre, then you'll more likely than not enjoy this. If cinematics and plot lines are more your thing, this isn't the film for you.

(Complete side note: I read the Prince of Wales actually wants to be George VII rather than Charles III when (if) he becomes King.)

I could see that happening.

And Prince Charles will become King, unless he dies before Queen Elizabeth.

I know he wants to.. and in the past its been the norm for them to pick their own regal name.. but nowadays.. after nearly 80 years of us all knowing him as Charles.. I think he'd have to be King Charles III

Couldn't recommend 'Promising Young Woman' more. It's hard to categorise, part revenge, romcom, thriller, dark comedy, drama. It plays out in several acts of a different genre, just when you think you know what you're getting, it flips. Essentially it tackles the topic of consent and the impact of non-consensual sex. Carey Mulligan is great in it and has great comic timing.

Watched Summer of 85 last night. Very good, was wondering if it was going to be like Call Me By Your Name, but it wasn't at all. François Ozon has a particular style and this was apparent with the small hints at cross-dressing and quite a bit of confused sexuality. Recommend, and free on Prime at the moment. Wouldn't rate it as high as CMBYN or Moonlight, but it has a lovely charm of its own.

It was a great movie. It's not the main stream type of "MeToo" story. The tone is a bit inconsistent but perhaps it is a reflection of the title character's journey. Carey Mulligan is excellent, Bo Burnham is not bad either. Go check out his stand up comedies, they are funny.[url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bo_Burnham][/url]





End of Sentence



It's a typical story of the journey where the son re-connects with his estranged father. The story is quite predictable. What stands out is the acting from John Hawkes and seeing Logan Lerman is not the boy from Percy Jackson anymore. Ireland was shot beautifully in the movie.

The First Wives Club, it was on 5Star. It was on, like it enough to to keep watching.

With Prince Charles becoming king, I think he going to chose a regal name as Charles I got his head remvoed from his body and Charles II was the party king

Just watched Blithe Spirit.

If Coward's original had the sophistication of a dry martini, this seems like a cheap lager. Despite a great cast (Dan Stevens - from Downtown Abbey, Judi Dench, Lesley Mann), it is a disappointment with none of the wit of the original. Heavy-handed script, like a poor dated sitcom and extra scenes added to no real benefit. The part of Mme Arcati is greatly reduced and we see too little of Judi Dench in the role.

Two stars out of five, and that is being generous.

This has definitely aged, but not as bad as I suspected.

Not seen that for years!


Now then....




Despite being on tv EVERY Christmas.. I'd never seen it.
So this year gave it a go.

I managed half of it before walking out (turning off)
What a load of absolute shit. How people can put this as the best kids family film ever is beyond me. An attempt to make a 2nd Mary Poppins with the most awful songs.. a dreadful Dick Van Dyke dance routine every 5 mins and it made no sense what so ever.

Unsurprisingly, after Romancing the Stone, I had to watch its sequel. Jewel of the Nile. It's still enjoyable but a lot of the racial stereotyping would not be allowed anymore these days.

The other night I watched The English Patient (1996) with Ralph Fiennes (for the first time).
In that film he was 34-y/o and to my eyes absolutely stunning, very much my type.
Recent photos suggest that he hasn't aged so well (at 58-y/o), but I still would.
I wavered between 4/5 and 5/5 Netflix stars and ultimately gave it 4/5, but it was a very close call.

I mean, sure I've not seen it since I was about 8, but...

Who supposedly rates it so highly? What I recall from little kid school days is we liked Willy Wonka (both watching the movie on TV and Roald Dahl’s book). In comparison, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang got zero notice.
