The Endless Trench.

A Spanish language movie about the "moles" who had to go into hiding in attics, crawl spaces etc, to avoid execution after the Spanish Civil War. Many of them remained hidden for thirty years or more until Franco granted them amnesty.

 

 

Where did you watch this? Prime? Netflix?

Winter's Bone   Tough drama set in really small town USA (Ozark Mountains).   Really impressed at the performances in this - a few Oscar nominations at the time.   7.5/10

Furious Styles

Superb comedy about a young boy in hitlers army who finds a Jewish girl hiding in his attic.

A bit late to the party but just watched The Meg. Jason Statham battling a giant prehistoric shark. 
It’s utter tosh. 
I enjoyed it. 

Anything with Statham will do me. You know they’re not going to win any acting awards, but that’s not why we watch  them. Love Crank and Transporter

Fantasy Island: Nostalgic, shit acting, mysterious storyline, some horror, some comedy.   

 

Hard to recommend it.   Not sure what the plan is, if they are going to do a series or sequel.   Hope they ditch the main actors, total pish. 

 

5/10

The Frenchman Returns

Parasite

 

9/10

 

we had never gotten round to watching this as we find we need to be in the mood for a subtitled film, particularly over 2hs. 
 

wow, what a twisted black comedy that was, absolutely loved it.

Rewatched Local Hero after a long long gap since the first watch.

 

Persuaded Mrs VM to watch it on my recommendation so no pressure.

 

What a gorgeous witty and charming film. New the basic plot from previous but it’s all about the characters and the fabulous acting performances that make the film.

 

The Mark Knopfler soundtrack brings a tear to the eye.

 

Its interesting watching a film now compared to say 30 years ago as you appreciate different aspects as you get older.

 

If you haven’t seen this dare I say it “classic” you won’t be disappointed 👍

Fat man 10/10 A fantastic take on Santa Claus. 

And  has 2 of my favourite actors in it. Mel Gibson and the outrageously good Walter Goggins.

The Peanut Butter Falcon.

 

Shia Labeouf, Zack Gottasagen and a very attractive Dakota Johnson.

 

Interesting film all about a Down syndrome man who runs away with the dream of becoming a pro wrestler. Taken under the wing of a fisherman on the run from some nasties.

 

The film was apparently written completely for Zack after the team behind it discovered him some time earlier at a summer camp.

 

It’s very charming in places and does have some very funny moments. The bond between the 2 male leads requires no acting. You can tell they genuinely are mates which is lovely.

 

Plot is a bit wobbly at times and the ending is just stupid.

 

7 out of 10.

It’s a great film. The legendary film critic Pauline Kael praised it to the hilt

“ Diego Maradona “

 

 It’s free on Channel 4 player . Very humble beginnings to being the greatest . Some moving bits about his family esp when he phoned his mum after winning the World Cup . He really lifted Napoli out of the bottom rung of Italian football and restored pride in the city . They were called the “ cholera   of Italy “by the Northern teams like Juventus and AC Milan .  And ofcourse some great football . What a life he led

Escape from Pretoria

7/10

 

True story of three political prisoners who attempt to escape from prison in South Africa in the late 1970s, starring Daniel Radcliffe, who is actually proving to be a very decent actor. I thought he was also good in "Jungle".

Mid90s

 

Jonah Hill's directing debut. I thought this was an excellent film with a great soundtrack. Certainly passed the time and the young skateboarders are great. On Netflix

 

7/10

Should have won awards for Jungle IMO.

Could have been great, it was a great idea. I thought Mel was good but the wee boy and the cringey 90's hit an stuff was horrendous.

Run, 7/10.  Sarah Paulson in a film about a mother caring for her premature baby who then grows up with what it seems are expected medical effects of her birth coming too early.

Maradona...a brilliant watch. The film highlights for me just how he ended up the way he did. Thrust into the spotlight away from his family at a very young and no support like they get nowadays. Everyone used and wanted a piece of him. I think anyone coming from his background in those times, would have went off the rails living in that environment. Still gutted he’s gone, a genius. 
 

10/10 for the number 10


RIP

Currently watching “Pitching Tents”

 

50 mins in and the signs are bad.

 

Its a crock of pish.

 

Unless you hear otherwise assume this pile of breast meat needs giblets shoved up its arse and served for Christmas.

I’ve actually switched this piece of shit off.

 

Never ever watch “Pitching Tents”

 

Its easily the worst film I have ever tried to watch.


1 from 10 and that’s 1 because it has a hint of fishing in it.

Mulan

 

 

Didn't expect to like it but I throughly enjoyed it. The girl that stars is a star in the making and is excellent, and there's a good story as well as that Disney magico only they do. One for the family but also if you're after something to watch. On Disney plus 

 

 

 

 

8/10
