    Evil Dead 2

    More possessed people mayhem from Sam Raimi. Haven't seen any of these in ages, so feeling a need to go back and watch the trilogy from the start!

      22 Jump Street

      Save your money, the best part is spoofing 23 Jump Street to ex dozen Jump Street during the credits.

        Under The Dome

        Ok, it isn't actually a film but it was on Amazon (formerly LoveFilm) and was written by Stephen King - which was good enough for my wife (despite the utter dreck that usually gets produced from his novels).
        A 2013 American TV series with at least 26 episodes in this season, believe me, it is dire. The wife wondered off to put our youngest to bed at around the half hour mark and although I lasted to the end (45 minutes, I ask you!) she didn't complain when she returned about half way through an old QI that I put on instead of the second episode.
        The idea is that somehow an invisible dome has suddenly sprung up around a small town, slicing houses, barns, trees, cows, etc in half cutting (tee hee...?) the town off from the rest of the world. Nothing can pass through the dome except the view (no sound, no radio waves, no power, nothing) and drivers ignore things like wreckage and carry on crashing into the dome, as do birds and a plane.
        One guy is burying a body in the woods and gets caught inside the dome; the local newspaper editor discovers her doctor-husband was having an affair since he wasn't on duty at the local hospital when he'd told her he was. The towns mayor is a used car salesman, the police chief has a pace-maker which is giving out, his deputy is married to a firefighter who is on the outside, the mayors son is a weirdo who has taken advantage of the situation and kidnapped the girl of his dreams, the jolly nurse, the local radio DJ and his producer who rave about their listening figures, the laid back bar owner, the grouchy man, the suicidal teenage boy and his coffee shop waitress sister, another grouchy man, the sexy woman, the others who are just there to die (like the redshirts in Star Trek) to keep the story going, etc etc etc. There is no one who elicits viewer sympathy - with just the one episode viewed I really couldn't care whether the military and the guys in dark glasses (they were there, of course) investigated the phenomena or just set up diversion signs and carried on with life.

        Oh, and it was produced by Steven Spielberg. Keep away, just avoid it.

          Hobo With a Shotgun

          Very violent, daft as a brush exploitation film starring Rutger Hauer. Good fun.

                Just watched "Edge of Tomorrow", not too bad.

                A bit like Universal Soldier meets GroundHog Day

                  Grand Prix, starring the late Jim Rockford.
                  The real do or die racers of their day.
                  Recorded, so I can watch it again.

                    The Spider-Man trilogy. A fun way to spend a few hours.

                      Been busy recently, but the kids were watching some Hobbit film and I sat down with them to while away a few hours...
                      When I woke up I found it was The Desolation of Smaug - as dull and boring a film that I could hope for to help send me to sleep when I obviously needed it.

                      Can't help you with the plot, doubtlessly it was fairly similar to the other one/s (fill in as desired); but can I just say that the baby - a Frozen/Tangled enthusiast - thoroughly enjoys Willo the Wisp (Kenneth Williams, 19981) on Youtube?

                        Rambo

                        Everyone's favourite 'Nam vet goes into Burma to track down a group of misplaced missionaries. Chaos and carnage ensues.

                        Wings

                        William Wellman's 1927 Oscar-winner. Still good to watch, but I didn't really go much for the new score on the blu-ray (plus the added sound effects kinda took me out of the film!).

                        Brave

                        My favourite Pixar film.

                          Talk about taking liberties with "History," walking talking rock men indeed.

                          What next the crucifixion and Jesus getting beamed up to his spaceship..
