    Hi All,
    The House Across The Lake 1954 Classic B&W (B-Movie) crime drama with a straight role for Sid James, easy to follow if predictable storyline
    (Probably why I enjoyed it ) but if you like the genre you should like this film....

    Starring:-Alex Nicol,Hillary Brooke,Sid James,Susan Stephen,Paul Carpenter,Alan Wheatley,Peter Illing,Gordon McLeod,Joan Hickson,John Sharp and
    Hugh Dempster.

    An American writer living in England gets entangled in a scheme by a beautiful blonde to murder her rich husband.

      Kingsman: The Golden Circle

      More daft capers with the gentleman spies. Not quite as good as the first one, but still quite good fun!

            The Crow

            Classic gothic action movie about a man coming back from the dead to avenge the murders of both himself and his girlfriend.

            Probably the finest superhero movie yet made.

              Love The Crow. Shame that Brandon Lee was killed during filming of it.

              Black Panther

              Saw this at the cinema yesterday. Very good it was too.

                Jurassic World

                Basically just the original film with a bigger budget, with none of the scares or charm.

                It's Jurassic Park for people who haven't seen Jurassic Park!

                        Hannover Street staring Harrison Ford and some bird who's name escapes me.
                        Despite all the neigh sayers I quite liked it.
                        Plenty of B25 action.

                          Hi All,
                          Hidden Figures 2016 (Via SKY Cinema) An excellent drama based on the true achievements by three women (Among many) that where the unsung
                          heroes of the US Space race having not only to put up with racism but sexism in a male dominated theatre of work. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would
                          recommend it to anybody interested in the space race for a peak through the curtain of what is rarely mentioned, except when brought to life in films such
                          as this. Not only that a good soundtrack and plenty of American cars from the 50's and the 60's.....

                          Starring:-Taraji P. Henson,Octavia Spencer,Janelle Mone,Kevin Costner,Kirsten Dunst,Jim Parsons,Glen Powell,Mahershala Ali,Karan Kendrick,
                          Donna Biscoe,Joylette Coleman,Rhoda Griffis,Maria Howell,Aldis Hodge,Paige Nicollette,Gary Weeks as Reporter,Saniyya Sidney,Zani Jones Mbayise,
                          Kimberly Quinn and Olek Krupa.

                          Three brilliant African-American women at NASA -- Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson
                          (Janelle Mone) -- serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit,
                          a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.

                                A complete load of hokum but with decent special FX and an entertaining enough way to spend an couple of hours.

                                  Hi All,
                                  The Zookeepers Wife 2017 (Via Sky Cinema) A good drama based on true life events in Poland during WWII well acted and a bit of a weepy but overall an excellent film of which I thoroughly enjoyed...

                                  Starring:-Jessica Chastain,Johan Heldenbergh,Daniel Brhl,Michael McElhatton,Iddo Goldberg,Efrat Dor,Shira Haas,Val Maloku,Timothy Radford,
                                  Martha Issov,Goran Kostić and Arnošt Goldflam.

                                  The time is 1939 and the place is Poland, homeland of Antonina Zabinski and her husband, Dr. Jan Zabinski. The Warsaw Zoo flourishes under Jan's
                                  stewardship and Antonina's care. When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck. The Zabinskis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save the lives of hundreds from what has become the Warsaw Ghetto.

                                    Thunder In The City 1937 (Via Talking Pictures channel on SKY) This B&W is billed as a comedy is a bit dated by todays comedy's being funny at times
                                    none the less you'll like it if your into E.G.Robinson.....

                                    Starring:-Edward G. Robinson,Luli Deste,Nigel Bruce,Constance Collier,Ralph Richardson,Arthur Wontner,Nancy Burne,Annie Esmond,Cyril Raymond,

                                    An American salesman with radically successful methods visits England ostensibly to learn a more dignified manner of salesmanship. He is mistaken for a
                                    millionaire by a cash-poor family of noble ancestry with a stately home to sell which he can't afford to buy. But by working with them instead he finds
                                    romance and equal success in business with his old marketing techniques.
