    Hi All,
    The Way To The Stars (Via Talking Pictures channel on Sky) Love watching this film great clips of Blenheim's/Boston's/Fortresses and Hurricanes just
    a classic 40's war film.....

    Starring:-Michael Redgrave,John Mills,Rosamund John,Douglass Montgomery,Stanley Holloway,Rene Asherson,Felix Aylmer,Basil Radford,Bonar Colleano
    Jnr Joyce Carey,Trevor Howard,David Tomlinson,Nicholas Stuart,Bill Owen,Grant Miller and Jean Simmons.

    At an English RAF base, bomber flight leader David Archdale (Michael Redgrave) masks his concern over his possible fate from his wife, Toddy
    (Rosamund John). Young pilot Peter Penrose (John Mills) arrives at the base, and his enthusiasm soon dims as the war takes its toll. When American flyers
    begin arriving, Yank Johnny Hollis (Douglass Montgomery) provides Toddy with much-needed friendship, while Peter's mounting bitterness comes between
    him and his girlfriend, Iris (Renee Asherson).

      Hi All,
      Defence Of The Realm (Via Talking Pictures channel on Sky). Still a good film after all these years IMO.....

      Starring:-Gabriel Byrne,Greta Scacchi,Denholm Elliott,Ian Bannen,Fulton Mackay,Bill Paterson,David Calder,Frederick Treves and Robbie Coltrane.

      Dennis Markahm (Ian Bannen) is forced to resign from the British Parliament after he is linked to a woman serving as an East German dignitary. As
      reporters Nick Mullen (Gabriel Byrne) and Vernon Bayliss (Denholm Elliott) investigate the case, they discover that there may be more to the incident than
      meets the eye, and that a nuclear near-accident at an Air Force base is somehow involved. Markham's secretary, Nina Beckman (Greta Scacchi), agrees to help, but she may know more then she lets on.

              Galaxy Quest

              Great fun.

                I eventually got around to watching Dunkirk this evening.
                A lot has already been said about this film, but suffice to say, I thought it was very good.

                    6 DAYS
                    About the events of April 1980 and for anyone old enough it interrupted the snooker.
                    Maybe its because ive read and watched lots about the Iranian Embassy siege that i found this film an interesting draw.
                    Rusty firmin was an adviser on the movie hes famously photographed on the ground floor with out his gloves.
                    The film covers all the important points but doesn't dig deep enough for me,following mainly Rustys section into the action.The sad fact of the assault is the SAS team haven't to this day been awarded for their gallantry for their actions,and sadly some not with us now.

                      Hi All,
                      Life (Via Sky Cinema) An excellent Sci-Fi film despite only having six cast members the film keeps moving and keeps your attention throughout
                      easily watchable again....

                      Starring:-Jake Gyllenhaal,Rebecca Ferguson,Ryan Reynolds,Hiroyuki Sanada,Ariyon Bakare and Olga Dihovichnaya.

                      Astronauts (Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds) aboard the International Space Station are on the cutting edge of one of the most
                      important discoveries in human history: the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars. As members of the crew conduct their research, the rapidly
                      evolving life-form proves far more intelligent and terrifying than anyone could have imagined.

                        I wasn't that keen on the film "Life". Rather like an updated version of Alien.

                          I thought the same.

                          The last film I watched was The Train. Burt Lancaster plays a French Resistance fighter trying to stop a train full of looted artworks from making its way to Nazi Germany in 1944.

                          Really rather good - spectacular setpieces for a film of its age, including a Spitfire strafing attack and a couple of very realistic bombing raids.

                                I've watched three classic WW2 films back-to-back over the past couple of days:

                                The Great Escape
                                Battle of Britain

                                  We watched "The Ridiculous Six" a few days ago, and found it quite funny.
                                  It's a comedy western starring Adam Sandler. Funny without being over the top.

                                      Hi All,
                                      Assassins Creed (Via SKY Cinema) I enjoyed the film adaptation of the highly popular video game which was fast paced throughout and can easily
                                      be watched a second time around......

                                      Starring:-Michael Fassbender,Marion Cotillard,Jeremy Irons,Brendan Gleeson,Charlotte Rampling,Michael K. Williams,Denis Mnochet,Ariane Labed,

                                      Cal Lynch travels back in time to 15th-century Spain through a revolutionary technology that unlocks the genetic memories contained in his DNA. There,
                                      he lives out the experiences of Aguilar de Nerha, a distant relative who's also a member of the Assassins, a secret society that fights to protect free will
                                      from the power-hungry Templar Order. Transformed by the past, Cal begins to gain the knowledge and physical skills necessary to battle the oppressive
                                      organization in the present.

                                        Tonight we watched "Bright"......It is a 2017 American urban fantasy action crime film directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis.
                                        The film stars Will Smith as a Los Angeles Police

                                        That's a couple of hours of my life I'll never get back....One of those films where it's always night time, as well as raining.
                                        I still don't have a clue as to what it was about.

                                          flying scenes of the Mosquito are worth the wait of this much missed aircraft in UK skies, not so much the aircraft models used to simulate aircraft
