    Hi All,
    The Legend Of Tarzan Not to bad just about watchable full of special effects mostly good but at times poor, also funny in a couple of places, another
    fine performance by 'Christoph Waltz' playing a sleazy scumbag and not one utterance of 'Mother4ker' from 'Samuel Jackson' Still if you want to while away
    an Hr&1/2 then give it a go, to be honest it's not as good as the 'Christopher Lambert' film 'Greystoke Legend Of Tarzan' but that's just my opinion.....

    Starring:-Alexander Skarsgård,Margot Robbie,Samuel L. Jackson,Christoph Waltz,Djimon Hounsou,Jim Broadbent,Casper Crump,Hadley Fraser,
    Genevieve O'Reilly,Yule Masiteng,Mimi Ndiweni,Simon Russell Beale,Matt Cross,Madeleine Worrall and William Wollen.

    It's been nearly a decade since Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård), also known as John Clayton III, left Africa to live in Victorian England with his wife Jane. Danger lurks on the horizon as Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz), a treacherous envoy for King Leopold, devises a scheme that lures the couple to the Congo. Rom plans to capture Tarzan and deliver him to an old enemy in exchange for diamonds. When Jane becomes a pawn in his devious plot, Tarzan must return to the jungle to save the woman he loves.

    Watched a Russian scifi film with some strange translation subtitles, they weren't bad it was just some were translated to the wrong meaning for the word rather like translating "he punched him in the mug" and putting "cup" as the translation if you know what I mean, it was a very good story and superb effects. Watched on the web


    This is it..... Attraction.... Check out the trailers

    Hi All,
    Suicide Squad. Via (SKY Cinema), A good addition to the 'DCU' would like to see the film with all the alleged 'Joker' edits restored as there are
    meant to be quite a bit of him edited out, still all in all a good film that just keeps going for 2Hrs, just a shame the soundtrack never included
    'Ballroom Blitz' like it does in the trailer would have made a great addition IMPO....

    Starring:-Will Smith,Jared Leto,Margot Robbie,Joel Kinnaman,Viola Davis,Jai Courtney,Jay Hernandez,Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje,Ike Barinholtz,
    Scott Eastwood,Cara Delevingne along with cameos from Ben Afleck and Ezra Miller to link the League Of Justice films that are coming out soon.

    Figuring they're all expendable, a U.S. intelligence officer decides to assemble a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission.
    Now armed with government weapons, Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and other despicable
    inmates must learn to work together. Dubbed Task Force X, the criminals unite to battle a mysterious and powerful entity, while the diabolical
    Joker (Jared Leto) launches an evil agenda of his own.

    Face/Off

    John Travolta and Nicolas Cage star as an FBI super-agent and the world's worst terrorist respectively in a classic John Woo bullet-fest. Great fun!

    Hi All,
    The Rain Maker via (SKY Cinema) a 'John Grisham' adaptation legal drama that has a few comic moments, well acted by all the cast and well

    Cast Away

    An underrated Tom Hanks classic, where he plays a FedEx employee lost on a flight over the Pacific.

    To Catch a Thief.
    Hitchcock's 1954 film about ex-cat burglar Cary Grant has to clear himself of involvement in a resides of thefts along the Cote de Azure.

    Grace Kelly looks great, something few women can do given the dated clothes, hair and makeup used in many old films.
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    Hi All,
    Dog Eat Dog via (Sky Cinema) Don't know what to say watchable just billed as a crime thriller but has some funny scenes in it also it's a
    weird film to watch darting from different styles of film either that or it was because I wasn't on drugs like 'William Defoes' character you get a
    basic outline of a story but it takes a while to get there also could be the reason it only took £1855.07 at the UK Box office.

    Definitely not one of 'Nicolas Cages' finer performances, none the less each to their own a good take your brain out and watch film.....

    Starring:-Nicolas Cage,Willem Dafoe,Christopher Matthew Cook,Omar Dorsey,Paul Schrader,Louisa Krause,Melissa Bolona,Chelcie Lynn,
    Chelsea Mee,John Patrick Jordan,Magi Avila,Jeff Hilliard and Sam Caminero.

    Ex-cons, Troy (Nicolas Cage), Mad Dog (Willem Dafoe) and Diesel (Christopher Matthew Cook), are hired by an eccentric mob boss to kidnap a
    baby and hold it for a large ransom. When the abduction goes awry, the men find themselves on the run from the mob and the cops. Vowing to
    stay out of prison at all costs, getting away with the crime is a matter of life and death.

    Conduct Unbecoming (1975) - Richard Attenborough,Trevor Howard,M+S York

    Around 1880, two young British officers arrive to join a regiment in India. One, Lieutenant Drake (M York), from a middle-class background, is extremely eager to make the right impression while the other, Lieutenant Millington (James Faulkner), the son of a General, is keen to get out as soon as possible and deliberately antagonises his fellow-officers. The two newcomers learn the traditions of the regiment, one of which is a mess game in which they chase a wooden pig on wheels, attempting to pierce its anus with their swords.

    Mrs Scarlett (Susanna York) the young and attractive widow of a captain who was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross, She does not behave in the manner expected of a hero's widow, flirting openly with soldiers she finds attractive. One night at a mess dance Millington gets drunk and in the garden tries to seduce Mrs Scarlett. She repels him, but moments later runs back into the mess wounded and in shock, claiming the culprit was Millington. An informal court martial (Subalterns Court) is convened in secret, with Drake ordered to be Millington's defending officer. Millington sees the proceedings as a convenient charade, allowing him to be sent home quietly. Drake is torn between putting on the best defence he can and advancing his own career by abiding with the wishes of the regiment's commanders to quickly and quietly have Millington found guilty.
    I had never seen this film before,but I enjoy military Court Martial films,almost all the cast are recognisable/well known and I personally thought that Stacey Keach did a good job as the senior Subaltern Officer (Captain Harper) and managed a british accent very well.I do not know who was the technical advisor for this film but the military side of things seemed pretty accurate,I was initially puzzled by the junior officers rank 'Pips' (Bath Stars) until I googled it and found that the rank pips were correct for 1880 (all junior officers were later given an extra 'pip' in 1902).
    A Subaltern is any officer below the rank of Major (so includes 2nd Lt up to Capt)

    A couple of weeks ago we watched The Aviator 1985 Christopher Reeve

    I had not seen this film for years,so we thought we would revisit it.
    I was never much of C Reeve fan but what makes this film perhaps more interesting for us is that he was a very keen pilot,a clue is that when you see him climb into the Stearman cockpit - you can tell he is at home and comfortable round aircraft.The film itself is a little like a slightly more grown up Disney film,and the 2 leads do not give perfect performances but the flying scenes and mountains etc are absolutely gorgeous and it was really nicely filmed in the then yugoslavia,the locations really do look like they could be Elko,Nevada .From the Ernest Gann novel about the Airmail pilot who has engine failure over the mountains and has to force land with a young female passenger on board,Reeve based his character on Charles Lindbergh.

    2 small extracts about Chris Reeve from Flying Magazine.





    Some people might recognise some of the pilots names,the lead Wolf looked absolutely ferocious LOL

    I watched Passengers on a recent flight on Air France, and Kong: Skull Island on another Air France flight.

    The movie Passengers is "reviewed" on You Tube >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jz_gA1IjDW4

    Kong was so bad that nobody wants to review it, yet it made $566 million

    Face/Off

    Back when Nicolas Cage made good movies, he starred in this crazy, balls-to-the-wall action movie with John Travolta as two bitter rivals - one a crazed terrorist, the other a super FBI agent - who swap identities in order to bring chaos and destruction to Los Angeles.

    Epic fun. Still brilliant.

    Kingsman - The Secret Service

    Taron Egerton and Colin Firth star in this mad James Bond spoof, where Samuel L Jackson is a billionaire eco-terrorist hellbent on wiping out half of humanity in order to save the planet. Great fun.

    I vaguely remember Face/Off from quite a while ago, and I certainly prefer watching older films to the current CG tripe.

    I watched Raiders of the Lost Ark on AF535 from OUA to CDG a few days ago.

    Your review of The Aviator doesn't mention the aircraft. Allow me to provide some details...
    Contrary to popular belief, the WWII Stearman trainers were not the same as the earlier Stearmans used as mail planes in the 1920s.
    The mail Stearmans were Model 2/3s and the larger Model 4 "Speedmails".
    The primary identification feature is they have "square tails" and not the rounded rudder of the military trainers. There are countless other differences, but that the one for quick ID.

    The film (like others before) use the wartime model 75s as used by the USAAC/USAAF/USN, Lend Lease recipients and other foreign governments.
    The days of open cockpit mail planes ended in the early 30s, the 75 didn't fly until 1935.

    Yes, it's a small thing but an analogy would be using Tiger Moths in place pre-war civil moths. The general public won't notice, but enthusiasts should.
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    We watched "Table 19" at the weekend. An easy going comedy, and not over long.
    Engine Failure:.... A condition which occurs when all fuel tanks mysteriously become filled with air.

    Sorry had meant to reply to this earlier -
    Many thanks for the Stearman details John.
    Of course when watching this particular movie - one has to at some stage stop laughing at the Tiger Moth(s) being used as WW1 trainer(s)

    Films we have watched recently


    The Age of Adaline .......... Not bad, worth a watch. A new slant on an old idea

    Table 19 .......................... A reasonable comedy

    Going in Style .................. Good film, well worth watching

    John Wick 2 ..................... Usual blood fest, along the lines of taken etc..Instantly forgettable but setting the scene for JW 3
    Engine Failure:.... A condition which occurs when all fuel tanks mysteriously become filled with air.

    Dunkirk again, last week. I imagine a third viewing is on the cards!

    Orca - Richard Harris plays a fisherman tormented by a vengeful killer whale after he mistakenly kills its mate. A very under-rated movie.

    The Deep - Robert Shaw, Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset try to uncover long lost treasure in Bermuda, while drug dealer Louis Gosset Jr. tries to make their job hard for them. Another under-rated flick.
