    That's meant to be really good. I never got around to seeing it in the cinema.

    The last film I watched was L.A. Confidential. Really rather good!

    Hi All,

    Watched the pure fantasy 'Stardust' via (Sky Cinema) if your into the genre you'll enjoy it. It has a host of recognisable British stars from both
    'Tv and Silver Screen' plus a some hitters from the 'US' in particular 'R.De-Niro' who has quite a funny roll not the usual roll he would play as many
    know him for. All in all a good 2Hr's of escapism that you can enjoy that has it's funny moments especially the ghosts...

    Starring:-Claire Danes,Charlie Cox,Michelle Pfeiffer,Robert De Niro,Mark Strong,Jason Flemyng,Rupert Everett,Kate Magowan
    Ricky Gervais,Peter O'Toole,Joanna Scanlan,Sarah Alexander,Mark Heap,Julian Rhind-Tutt,Adam Buxton,David Walliams
    Nathaniel Parker,Ben Barnes,Sienna Miller as Victoria Forester,Henry Cavill,David Kelly,Melanie Hill,Mark Williams,Jake Curran
    George Innes,Dexter Fletcher,Eliot (Coco) Sumner and Ian McKellen(Narrator).

    To win the heart of his beloved (Sienna Miller), a young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) ventures into the realm of fairies to retrieve a fallen star. What Tristan finds, however, is not a chunk of space rock, but a woman (Claire Danes) named Yvaine. Yvaine is in great danger, for the king's sons need her powers to secure the throne, and an evil witch (Michelle Pfeiffer) wants to use her to achieve eternal youth and beauty.

    Hi All,
    Daz,
    I recommend you watch 'Don't Breath' I enjoyed it thoroughly it really does have a good twist and the ending leaves the possibility for a sequel IMPO
    when you have watched it you decide.

    I liked the ghosts interaction in their scenes quite funny as did I with 'Mark Hughes' being turned from goat to human This scene with Mr De Niro
    AKA 'Twinkle Toes' I found really funny especially when 'Mark Strong' walks in on him...

    Not exactly a film, but I've just rewatched Piece of Cake. Just as good as I remember it but the book is better

    Hi All,
    21/04 Watched the low budget drama via (Sky Cinema) '100 Streets' if you like drama and interconnecting stories by loose threads then this is for you I enjoyed it for what it was a not to difficult to follow plot with plenty of recognisable stars from UK Tv and Film....

    Starring:-Idris Elba,Gemma Arterton,Franz Drameh,Ken Stott,Kierston Wareing,Charlie Creed-Miles,Tom Cullen,Ryan Gage and
    Adam Iraki.

    Three different stories covering infidelity, adoption and a drug dealer turned actor are intertwined as characters meet in the streets of London.

    Hi All,
    22/04 I Watched the at least IMO the rather underrated but good pure fantasy 'Warcraft' via (Sky Cinema). After many years stuck in development the film
    based on the world wide popular role player game has taken the game based film genre to a better level (Not quite there yet

    The CGI is evident at times but they are getting closer and closer where reality and 'CGI' will blur into one seamless experience in the not to distant future
    I am certain. Just take a viewing of 'Jungle Book' everything in that film is 'CGI' apart from mogli, anyway if your into the fantasy genre you should enjoy
    this movie and the ending sets up a sequel which I am personally looking forward to....

    Starring:-Travis Fimmel (Radnor from Vikings) as Anduin Lothar, the military commander of the human forces in Stormwind Kingdom. Steadfast
    and charismatic, Anduin is a knight who has sacrificed everything to keep the king and his people safe.
    Paula Patton as Garona Halforcen, a strong-willed half-orc survivor caught between the Alliance and the Horde.
    Ben Foster as Medivh, the current Guardian of Tirisfal and a mysterious and reclusive protector who wields formidable magical power.
    Daniel Wu as Gul'dan, a sinister Shadowmoon orc warlock. Wielding powerful fel magic and driven by his ravenous desire for power, he
    orchestrates the actions of the Horde from behind the scenes.

    Dominic Cooper as King Llane Wrynn, ruler of the Stormwind Kingdom and a beacon of hope for his people in times of darkness.
    Toby Kebbell as Durotan, the father of Go'el and the noble orc chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan battling to save his exiled clan and the rest of the
    renegade orcs from Gul'dan and the destruction of their world. Kebbell also portrays the Archmage Antonidas, leader of the Kirin Tor, the mage council
    of Dalaran. Ben Schnetzer as Khadgar, a gifted young mage who was trained at a young age by the Kirin Tor to succeed Medivh as Guardian,
    but left and eventually found his place in the Stormwind Kingdom. Robert Kazinsky as Orgrim Doomhammer, Durotan's best friend and right-hand
    man who later leads the survivors of the Frostwolf Clan.Clancy Brown as Blackhand, the fearsome orc chieftain of the Blackrock Clan and puppet of Gul'dan
    who rises to become the first warchief of the Horde.

    Ruth Negga as Lady Taria Wrynn, Queen-consort of Stormwind, King Llane's wife and most trusted counsel, and Anduin's sister.
    Anna Galvin as Draka, Durotan's mate and the mother of Go'el.
    Callum Keith Rennie as Moroes, the castellan who manages Medivh's arcane stronghold of Karazhan.
    Burkely Duffield as Callan Lothar, son of Anduin and a soldier who follows in his father's footsteps.
    Ryan Robbins as Karos, a soldier of Stormwind.
    Dean Redman as Varis as Varis, a soldier of Stormwind. Redman also portrayed a caged Frostwolf Clan orc.

    Terry Notary appears as Grommash Hellscream, the orc chieftain of the Warsong Clan, though the part is listed in the credits as Peon. Notary also
    served as stunt coordinator and movement coach for the film, working with cast members Kebbell, Kazinsky, Brown, Wu and Galvin on their portrayals of
    the orcs, and with Foster on his portrayals of magic. Michael Adamthwaite appears as King Magni Bronzebeard, the dwarf ruler of Ironforge.
    Tommy Rieder and Dylan Schombing appear as a young Medivh and Varian Wrynn, respectively.

    Glenn Close makes an uncredited appearance as Alodi, an ancient mage locked in an artifact within Dalaran, described as "the Guardian before
    there was a Guardian". In the comics, Alodi was the first Guardian of Tirisfal and a male half-elf, while the character in the film is closer to that of
    Aegwynn, Medivh's mother.
    Chris Metzen, who served as the writer for the film and is the Senior Vice-President of Story and Franchise Development at Blizzard Entertainment
    and the voice of Thrall in the Warcraft franchise, makes an uncredited cameo appearance as a turbaned perfume vendor on the streets of Stormwind Kingdom.

    (I have left character descriptions in for those not familiar with this role playing game adaptation.... )

    Looking to escape from his dying world, the orc shaman Gul'dan utilizes dark magic to open a portal to the human realm of Azeroth. Supported by the
    fierce fighter Blackhand, Gul'dan organizes the orc clans into a conquering army called the Horde. Uniting to protect Azeroth from these hulking invaders
    are King Llane, the mighty warrior Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel) and the powerful wizard Medivh. As the two races collide, leaders from each side start to
    question if war is the only answer.

    Two mild-mannered suburbanites have to unleash their inner bad-asses when a beloved kitten is stolen by a gang of ruthless drug dealers.

    Actually a lot better (and funnier) than it sounds!

    The Great Waldo Pepper

    Robert Redford stars as a charismatic ex-WW1 pilot who scrapes together a living by barnstorming around the American mid-west in his old JN4 biplane.

    His quest for fame and fortune sees him being smashed and bashed in various stunts, until he finally ends up flying in Hollywood movies against a man equally hard on his luck.

    If you haven't seen this one, you kinda have to. A great throw-back to the 1920s and 30s, to the days where death-defying stunts were really that. All of the barnstorming scenes were done for real - that is, with actual people flying in real aircraft, not models or studio rigs - and there is a fantastic WW1 dogfight at the end.

    Well worth a shot.

    Hi All,
    Star Trek Beyond a very underrated film from the franchise IMHO, the only bit that didn't belong to it was the motorbike sequence that was spoilt by the bad CGI apart from that I enjoyed the Sci-Fi film that has a nice dedication to 'Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin' at the end, the film flies past and can easily be watched again....

    Starring:-Chris Pine,Zachary Quinto,Karl Urban,Simon Pegg Zoe Saldana,John Cho,Anton Yelchin,Sofia Boutella,Idris Elba,
    Joe Taslim,Lydia Wilson,Sara Forsberg,Deep Roy,Melissa Roxburgh,Shohreh Aghdashloo,Greg Grunberg,Danny Pudi,Kim Kold,
    Anita Brown,Doug Jung,Dan Payne,Shea Whigham and Jeff Bezos.

    A surprise attack in outer space forces the Enterprise to crash-land on a mysterious world. The assault came from Krall (Idris Elba), a lizard-like dictator who derives his energy by sucking the life out of his victims. Krall needs an ancient and valuable artifact that's aboard the badly damaged starship. Left stranded in a rugged wilderness, Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the crew must now battle a deadly alien race while trying to find a way off their hostile planet.

    I watched "Target for Tonight" on YouTube yesterday.

    The first time I've watched it. Those cut glass accents are amazing.

    I must have a look at the USAAF version, "Target for Today".

    Hi All,
    Sausage Party. A definitely not for children animated film that is quite funny for the most but not to everybody's taste. I would say If your easily
    offended it's not for you! especially as it pokes fun at many subjects that some find offensive when done. On the whole it's just a good take your brain
    out (That ok for me then I haven't one ) and watch film. Particular funny moments are the Pitta and Bagel interaction also the Junkie who when
    shooting up can see the food talking to him. The only let down was the free for all near the end it just doesn't fit in with the story seems that
    the makers ran out of ideas ?

    Character voice stars:-Seth Rogen,Kristen Wiig,Jonah Hill,Bill Hader,Michael Cera,James Franco,Danny McBride,Craig Robinson,
    Paul Rudd,Nick Kroll,David Krumholtz,Edward Norton,Salma Hayek,Alistair Abell,Iris Apatow,Sugar Lyn,Ian James,Michael Daingerfield
    Brian Dobson,Michael Dobson,Ian Hanlin,Maryke Hendrikse,Anders Holm,Lauren Miller,Nicole Oliver,Kelly Sheridan,Jason Simpson
    Greg Tiernan,Vincent Tong,Scott Diggs Underwood,Conrad Vernon,Sam Vincent and Harland Williams.

    Life is good for all the food items that occupy the shelves at the local supermarket. Frank (Seth Rogen) the sausage, Brenda (Kristen Wiig) the hot dog bun,
    Teresa Taco and Sammy Bagel Jr. (Edward Norton) can't wait to go home with a happy customer. Soon, their world comes crashing down as poor Frank learns
    the horrifying truth that he will eventually become a meal. After warning his pals about their similar fate, the panicked perishables devise a plan to escape
    from their human enemies.

    Hi All,
    Kaljaki. (BBCi available until 31/5) A good modern day war drama despite most of the action being confined to area still manages to put the viewer
    in the soldiers situation with some grizzly scenes but don't watch if you expect all the violence that usually comes with a modern war film. This is based on
    a true event that involved the 'British Army' during their tour of 'Afghanistan', it's 'Triumph over Adversity' overcoming the situation as it deteriorates
    around them and the bravery of all involved.....

    Starring:-David Elliot,Mark Stanley,Scott Kyle,Benjamin O'Mahony,Bryan Parry,Liam Ainsworth,Ali Cook,Andy Gibbins,Grant Kilburn
    John Doughty,Jon-Paul Bell,Malachi Kirby,Luebke,Robert Mitchell,Thomas Davison,Abe Dababneh,Felipe Cabezas and Hazem Alagha.

    During the war in Afghanistan, British soldiers embark on a mission to save their trapped comrades after one (Benjamin O'Mahony) loses a leg to a land mine.

    Hi All,
    IDResurgence (Via Sky Cinema) I finally got around to viewing this and was expecting a real turd of a movie, true while not as good as the original
    ID and a bit corny at times I feel it was worth watching as a continuance of the franchise being honest though the film make ahs let his side down and not
    because of the lack Will Smith as many where saying.

    The hope they can at least do the follow up 3rd film better which the ending seems to suggest would round it off nicely but has to be better than both
    previous films IMHO. Sadly though I fear because of the slating it received it will possibly not happen. It's shame really as they could have ended the
    franchise in the 3rd film on a high...

    Starring:-Liam Hemsworth,Jeff Goldblum,Bill Pullman,Maika Monroe,Jessie T. Usher,Travis Tope,William Fichtner,Charlotte Gainsbourg,Judd Hirsch,
    Brent Spiner and Sela Ward along with a host of others.

    As the Fourth of July nears, satellite engineer David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) investigates a 3,000-mile-wide mother ship that's approaching Earth.
    Fortunately, 20 years earlier, nations across the world started to use recovered extraterrestrial technology to develop an immense defense program.
    When the alien invaders attack with unprecedented force, the U.S. president, teams of scientists and brave fighter pilots spring into action to save the
    planet from a seemingly invincible enemy.

    Alien Covenant

    Not as bad as some critiques would have you believe.
    Very entertaining film and `kindof` true to the originals and helping to explain how Alien came to be,
    although I get the feeling there will be more films before we reach that point.
    A good film spoiled, like Prometheus with stupid characters.
    I can't get my head around the concept of crewing a state of the art, multi-zillion pound operation with incompetant retards, even if that does help the plot along.
    I also don't agree that `Katherine Waterston` plays a great part in this film. She blends into the background as yet another `crewman`. Ripley she isn't.
    Fassbender is the only notable character and holds the film together.
    Certainly worth watching but not the epic you are expecting.

    Hi All,
    Tell Me How I Die. ( Via Sky Cinema) A low budget 'Horror/Thriller' film aimed more at young adults really, no real shockers but still watchable as
    a 'Horror' IMPO just not much of it with just bits and pieces, still a good waste of 107mins of your life if you have nothing else to watch...

    Starring:-Nathan Kress,Virginia Gardner,Kirby Bliss Blanton,Ryan Higa and William Mapother.

    A killer starts to pick off college students one by one after they take an experimental drug that leads to visions of their own murders.

    Hi All,
    Shadowlands. (Via Sky Cinema) Biopic about a chapter In the life of 'C.S.Lewis' when he meets and eventually falls in love with an American women,
    bit of a weepy in the last 45mins you'll need a hanky ( Yes I did blub! ). Thought it was an excellent all-round well acted Drama especially since it's
    from 1993 Anthony Hopkins at his best IMHO.....

    Starring:-Anthony Hopkins,Debra Winger,Edward Hardwicke,Joseph Mazzello,James Frain,Julian Fellowes,Michael Denison and John Wood with a couple of
    early appearances by now established actors.

    C. S. Lewis (Anthony Hopkins), the renowned author of "The Chronicles of Narnia" series, is a bachelor and Oxford University professor who spends his free
    time debating with fellow academics at a pub. Although he seems entirely uninterested in love, Lewis agrees to marry Joy Gresham (Debra Winger), an
    American writer who is looking to secure British citizenship. Their arrangement soon becomes a romance, and, when Joy is diagnosed with terminal cancer,
    their bond grows even stronger.

    Hi All,
    Tiger Raid watched this low budget film via (Sky Cinema) not to bad just a good bit of a drama between the two main characters, along with
    supporting cast members where necessary through the film with an unexpected ending. It's not to everybody's taste as it focuses only on two
    characters and would seem boring to most but IMO they carry it off....

    Starring:-Brian Gleeson,Damien Molony,Sofia Boutella,Rory Fleck Byrne,Evan Khader,Majid Rahan,Murtada Dakhel and Khaled Sabbagh.

    Two cold-blooded mercenaries form a dark bond as they travel through the deserts of Iraq.

    Hacksaw Ridge

    True story of conscientious objector Desmond Doss, who helped rescue over 70 wounded troops during the battle of Okinawa, then received the Medal of Honor for his efforts.

    Pretty decent fare, I'll admit, but I'll give it another watch at some point.

    T2 - Trainspotting

    The gang's all back for another rousing adventure through Edinburgh. While maybe not as memorable as the original, it's still a worthy follow-up, and it's great to catch up with the boys again. Robert Carlyle steals the show.

    Evil Dead/Evil Dead II/Army of Darkness

    Sam Raimi's mad horror series revolving around anti-hero Ash Williams, and his struggles against the Deadites. Brilliant fun!

    John Wick/john Wick - Chapter 2

    Keanu Reeves turns on his bad-ass mode and puts the smack down on people who have wronged him. Great fun.

    Hi All,
    Jack Reacher via SKY Cinema quite good as far as I am concerned and should have really done better at the box office, still it is what it is a good action thriller and worth a gander if your into that genre....

    Starring:-Tom Cruise,Cobie Smulders,Aldis Hodge,Danika Yarosh,Patrick Heusinger,Holt McCallany,Austin Hebert,Robert Catrini,Robert Knepper and
    Jessica Stroup.

    Investigator Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) springs into action after the arrest of Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders), an Army major accused of treason.
    Suspecting foul play, Jack embarks on a mission to prove that the head of his old unit is innocent. After crossing paths with the law, Reacher must
    now go on the lam to uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy that involves the death of U.S. soldiers.
