The Frenchman Returns

News of the World

 

8/10

 

There was a novelty value to it that was rather sweet but some parts, gunfight in particular, felt drawn out. Helena Zengel deserves a mention or two, some performance from a 11/12 year old.

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

Watched the Nice Guys, this afternoon, which I had recorded off Film4. Stars Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling as a couple of Private investigators. I enjoyed it.

The female actress that plays Gosling's daughter steals the film.

Some very good laughs in it 7.5/10

Yes a good film, Crowe is a really good actor . So commanding on screen . Always reminds me of Brando

Hunter Killer 8/10 

 

Watched it twice.  With speakers then headphones.    Better on headphones.    Good action scenes, gripping drama, thrills.    Some crap acting.  Some scenes I thought could have went a different way.   Didn't spoil it though.    I expected different but was delighted with some scenes I didn't expect.   Some stuff I've not seen before.   It wasn't entirely about the submarine but was a good gobetween with what else happens. 

 

I think it could be beaten if another submarine movie was made, if it was more about the sub'.

Monster hunter

 

Movie from Paul Anderson (resident evil franchise) that is another popular game made into a movie starring his wife Mila Jovovich.

 

Never heard of the game and wish I never seen this film.

The CGI is horrific for a Hollywood movie. Characters are non existent and the film sucks overall.

 

2/10 really like Mila Jovovich but this is on par with Ultraviolet

The Red Sea Diving Resort

 

This one came up on Netflix and I thought sounds interesting. Won't say  too much but a number of big names: Ben Kingsley, Chris Evans, Alessandro Nivolo (the guy in goal that's a playboy) put in creditable performances in an intriguing film that kept my attention.

 

7/10

Good recommendation rudi

 

Kept both Mrs F and I interested until the end and would give it 7.5/10, my only criticism would be the final titles, I would have liked more information on numbers and the people involved. Worth a watch.

The Borderlands. 

 

The ending is unreal. 😳


Very average film but the ending stayed with me for days.
Honestly, I haven’t seen an ending to a horror film that good since Blair witch project.

It was an average horror film I agree but I liked the two main characters, which made the ending more horrific. I was physically affected by it. 😐

Songbird

 

5/10

 

Don't watch this to be cheered up, its Covid 23 and its much worse than now............... A few people are immune, you get sick and you go to the Q zone, basically a concentration camp. Peter Stormare plays the "bad cop" with an element of the child catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Demi Moore is also present but not as alluring as her younger self.

I just seen this recently.

 

Stan & Ollie is on BBC2 tonight

 

I'm a huge fan, so was a bit unsure it wouln't work, it was terrific.

 

Performance of John C Reilly as Ollie is fantastic and Coogan does a great Stan.

Haven't seen it but I love L&H. The only thing is I can't stand Steve Coogan - for no rational reason I may add.

I still believe

 

3/10

 

OK, need to say I didn't realise this was a Christian movie before I put it on. So it was absolutely not my cup of tea. Its a love story and I thought Mrs F might like it. Talk about depressing, boy meets girl, girl get cancer, lets pray, etc etc

Probably should have switched it off.

Snakes On A Plane is on Netflix. Watched it last night. Awful acting, scrip is poor and it isnt the best produced. The view through the snakes eyes is laughable. 

 

Having said that, I loved it. So silly and stupid but very watchable.

Wrong turn(2020) the first one had flaws,but I thought it was decent. This actually starts well and is quite menacing in tone but then it just goes south in a big way. 3/10

Enjoyed this. Good turns by Hanks and the wee lassie. 

It’s not his best, but still another top performance from him. Wee lassie was very good.

I’m watching Framing Britney Spears just now. If you didn’t already intensely dislike the media and paparazzi watch this. Some people are absolute scum. People totally aware of what they were doing to her continuing to harass her as if she isn’t even a person.

Going to have to be some incredible level of scum to be worse than those in the above movie. I’ll try and get a watch of the Britney one after this👍

Lost Girls

 

A mother searches for her missing daughter. Better than your usual Netflix films I thought, it kept my attention and has an above average performance from Amy Ryan (The US Office)

Her

 

Weird premise but I found the film riveting. Joaquin Phoenix is excellent and the movie plods along at a good pace with good characters and good dialogue. It was a nice change from the miserable stuff on Netflix and Amazon

watched this the other night. Horrendous what that girl had to put up with. Tragic .  
never understood why folk want to be famous when you look at what it can do to you. What a hellish life having all the paparazzi crowd you like that every single day. Hope she recovers but very sad

Absolutely brilliant film. Great acting, great music, well edited, what you expect from in my opinion a genius of a filmmaker Spike Lee

Yet another excellent recommendation rudi, thank you

 

I Care a Lot

 

10/10

 

A rare perfect score but 3 days later this film and the concept behind it is still in my head. Rosamund Pike is wonderfully callous as she plays a legal guardian and has rightly been nominated for a Golden Globe. An intelligent film that shocks and amuses at the same time. Suberb.

It’s very odd, the IMDB reviews are either scathing or showering praise on it. Obviously quite a polarising film.

Da 5 Bloods

 

7/10

 

OK but very long, 2 1/2 hours. Found parts of it very interesting, black US soldiers in Vietnam war and their return many years later. Liked that they used the same actors flashing back and didn't try to make them younger, easier to follow. However it was way too far fetched and frankly ridiculous in places.

Pelé on Netflix, pretty much what you title promises, a documentary about the man himself. Worth a watch if you enjoy football history and seeing some great footage and interviews with legends on borrowed time.

Really? The ending divided me a bit. It was unexpected and very anxiety inducing definitely. Kennedy was really good in this

Someone I know watched it and didn't like the ending. It still gives me the heebiejeebies though. 😀

Greenland. Easy to watch action nonsense with Gérard Butler. 

 

Some tense scenes when the panic sets in. 

 

6.5/10 (Amazon Prime) 

 

Same score from me. Decent as far as disaster movies go. First half was better. 

 

Butler's accent was all over the place at the start. Scottish one sentence. American the next. Then kinda Irish before slipping back to sounding mostly Scottish for the remainder.

I think I might have missed out on this movie if it hadn’t been recommended by you rudi. So glad you did, as I thought it was a cracking watch.👏

Bohemian Rhapsody (Amazon Prime)

6/10

A bit bland. Not enough debauchery and too much Live Aid at the end.
