      My Week With Marilyn - very good film about Colin Clark's brief fling with the star while filming with Olivier. Great performances from Ken Branagh and Michelle Williams.

          First Blood

          Arguably Stallone's best outing as the 'Nam vet John Rambo - and still one of his best performances.

            Close?, you need two of them and then you could mount them in a specs frame, surprised you never went for a 32 inch, they don't take up much more room or cost a lot more these days. I enjoyed A Week With Marylyn

              Too big, Tony! For me the TV is an unavoidable part of room furniture but should be as unobtrusive as possible.

                  Last few movies

                  Captain America: the Winter Soldier - courtesy of Cineworld Didsbury in 3D
                  The latest and very nearly the best in The Marvel series. Not as good as the awesome Avengers Assemble but not far away.

                  Thor: the Dark World
                  Saw this in the cinema when it came out but watched it again last week on Blu-ray and it looks fantastic on a 42" LED TV. Still a great film and surprisingly funny in places.

                  World War Z
                  A decent enough apocalypse/zombie sort of affair but didn't really live up to the hype.

                      Hi All,
                      WWZ - Not all it was hyped to be but still enjoyed it, I suppose it is just a sign of the times that trailers for films just don't carry through to the film when watched showing just the best bit's. Watched 'Planes' 7/4/2014.

                        Serpico - hadn't seen it for years. Terrific film and Pacino on top form.

                          Grand Budapest Hotel - one of Wes Anderson's best - hugely enjoyable with a great cast.

                            Escape Plan

                            Arnie and Sly attempt to escape from a super-max prison. Not bad.

                            Man of Steel

                            Should have called it "Meh of Steel". Not even close to the 1978 original. Not even close to Superman 2 for that matter.

                              Captain America -- Nah na, na nah -- Winter Soldier

                              The chase and shooting scenes as is the norm nowadays are over done to the point of being a bit silly, but other wise a very good film.

                                  The reviews didn't inspire my interest so I'll be giving it a miss!!

                                    Me too then if it's as bad as that. I have been watching a lot of 1940s films of late on BBC Iplayer. some quite good ones on there.

                                      A few more recent viewings

                                      The Amazing Spiderman 2 (2014)
                                      Saw this in 3D on Wednesday past. Excellent film and the 142 minutes just flew past. Great action and use of 3D, a decent love story and some very nice touches. Funny too.


                                      Man of Steel (2013)
                                      Courtesy of Sky Movies HD. Henry Cavill is Clark Kent/Superman/Kal-El in a re-boot of a reboot. After a decent but poorly received Superman Returns (2006), this attempts to start the series off again and is a pretty decent effort. Henry Cavill certainly looks the part, the special effects are well done, if a little overdone in places. It merges plots from a few previous stories but is decent enough for all that.

                                      Two similar stories
                                      The Pelican Brief (1993)
                                      Julia Roberts is a law student who stumbles across a conspiracy in government and is helped by journalist Denzil Washington, Decent, exciting thriller based on a Grisham book.

                                      All the President's Men (1976)
                                      Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman are journalists who come across a conspiracy in government. Fine drama made better by knowing it's a true story.

                                        Puss in Boots

                                        Antonio Banderas plays the titular feline hero, while Salma Hayek plays his accomplice/love interest in a fairytale inspired adventure. Great fun - especially since there's no annoying talking donkey in the mix!
