Watched two films over the weekend would recommend both ' The Mule' with Clint Eastwood and Going in Style with Michale Caine both very good

The Peanut Butter Falcon

From the same people as Little Miss Sunshine, but not so darkly funny. Nothing to surprise you in the plot, but engaging characters, acted with warmth and charm. Delivers the feel good factor, if you're willing to go along with it. 7/10

Guns akimbo
a live action shoot em up game, with lots of blood and gore, and a touch of humour.
Daniel Radcliffe stars, and does a good job
I'm often accused of acting like I don't care






It's not an act!!

Finnish TV is running a season of movies by women directors. last night I watched Detroit about the riots of 1967. Very harrowing experience looking at police brutality and stupidity... coupled with corrupt judicial system.

One film to avoid. Far North with Sean Bean. Dear god, plot is crap, acting is crap ending is utterly awful. I cannot believe i sat and watched that bag o shite. I suppose I just anted it to get better, it didn't. Save yourself 90 odd mins of life sapping bollocks. You have been warned.
Yup, it's me.

Currently working my way through the Sergio Leone westerns. What a master of his craft he was. The Dollars trilogy need no introduction of course and each are very memorable in their own right. Once Upon a Time in the West is simply a masterpiece. Such a great cast all on the top of their game with stellar performances from Henry Fonda, Claudia Cardinale, Charles Bronson and others. Today I watched A Fistful of Dynamite which is considered to be Leone's least favoured spaghetti western but I seem to like it more and more each viewing. I think if you love westerns you'll agree all Leone's films rightly earn their place among the greatest ever, made all the more brilliant by the score's from Ennio Morricone, another master of his craft.
