      Hi All,
      ~Alan~ - Was it a DP or Dazzle ?....

      Live By Night 2016 (Via Sky Cinema) A somewhat sedated gangster film but when the action does happen it is good so on the whole although panned
      by some critics as average I actually enjoyed this film..

      Starring:-Ben Affleck,Elle Fanning,Remo Girone,Brendan Gleeson,Robert Glenister,Matthew Maher,Chris Messina,Sienna Miller,Miguel Pimentel,
      Zoe Saldana,Chris Cooper,Titus Welliver,Max Casella,J. D. Evermore,Clark Gregg,Anthony Michael Hall,Chris Sullivan,Derek Mears and Gianfranco Terrin.

      It's the Roaring `20s and Prohibition hasn't stopped the flow of booze in an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. The opportunity to gain
      power and money is there for any man with enough ambition and nerve, and Joe Coughlin, the son of the Boston Police superintendent, long ago turned
      his back on his strict upbringing for the spoils of being an outlaw. But even among criminals there are rules, and Joe breaks a big one: crossing a powerful
      mob boss by stealing his money and his moll.

        Dawn of the Dead

        Zack Snyder's updated version of George Romero's classic zombie flick.

        A group of people are trapped inside a shopping mall while a zombie apocalypse rages outside.

        Gruesome in all the right places, and a storyline that speeds by, it's a great remake. I don't think it gets the credit it deserves!

            Ready Player One

            Based on a book of the same name.

            Lots of 80's references and more on top of that. Story is about a Virtual Reality game called the Oasis and the hunt for keys hidden in the game, that will lead to the finder of all three to becoming the owner of the company that runs it.

            Need to read the book now.

              Just been watching ...The Man in the Sky.. from 1957, featuring a Bristol Freighter.

                  Hi All,
                  XXX The Return Of Zander Cage
                  2017 (Via Sky Cinema) Somewhat disappointing return of the original XXX IMPO not a patch on the first film in the
                  franchise only slightly better than the second that featured Ice Cube (Who also appears near the end) some good action sequences and stunts but just
                  catering to the millennial audience but hey! you either like or not like simple!......

                  Starring:-Vin Diesel,Donnie Yen,Deepika Padukone,Kris Wu,Ruby Rose,Tony Jaa,Nina Dobrev,Samuel L. Jackson,Toni Collette,Nicky Jam,Rory McCann,
                  Al Sapienza,Michael Bisping,Ariadna Gutirrez,Hermione Corfield,Tony Gonzalez,Ice Cube,Shawn Roberts,Daniel Kash,Neymar Jr. and Andrey Ivenchko.

                  After coming out of self-imposed exile, daredevil operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) must race against time to recover a sinister weapon known as
                  Pandora's Box, a device that controls every military satellite in the world. Recruiting a new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself entangled
                  in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of government.

                    Hi All,
                    Millions Like Us 1943 (Via Talking Pictures Channel on SKY) Typical wartime film with some good clips of a Short Stirling and Lancaster to flesh the
                    film out all in all I enjoyed it....

                    Starring:-Patricia Roc,Gordon Jackson,Anne Crawford,Basil Radford,Naunton Wayne,Moore Marriott,Eric Portman,Joy Shelton,John Boxer,Valentine Dunn,
                    Megs Jenkins,Terry Randall,Amy Veness,John Salew,Beatrice Varley,Bertha Willmott,Irene Handl and Amy Dalby.

                    At the outbreak of World War II, Celia (Patricia Roc) and her family must join the domestic British war effort. Celia is recruited to work in a munitions
                    factory, where her co-workers represent a variety of social classes. She falls in love with Fred Blake (Gordon Jackson), a young pilot, and the two are
                    married. Fred is soon deployed to battle, however, and Celia must face the harsh realities of life as a soldier's wife, while continuing her crucial work on
                    the home front.

                        Ray Wise as Commissioner James Gordon - Robin Atkin Downes as Detective Harvey Bullock - John DiMaggio as Carlos Francesco -
                        Brian George as Alfred Pennyworth - J. P. Karliak as Reese - Andrew Kishino as Murray - Nolan North as Mitch -
                        Maury Sterling as Parry Francesco / Paris Franz - Fred Tatasciore as Carnival Owner - Bruce Timm as Patrolman - Anna Vocino as Jeannie and
                        Kari Wahlgren as Call Girl Rick.

                        Batman must save Commissioner Gordon from the Joker's twisted quest to drive him insane.

                            Spielberg's latest adventure, based on the book of the same name. Pretty good fun, really. Probably better watched on the big screen, however, given the visuals in the film, but definitely worth a second watch on the small screen.

                              Hi All,
                              They Who Dare 1954 (Via Taking Pictures Channel on SKY) Still like watching this film good old fashioned flag waving WWII drama featuring SM.79's and
                              a suspicious looking Beaufighter MkX posing as one... I wonder what happened to them ?

                              Starring:-Dirk Bogarde,Denholm Elliott,Akim Tamiroff,Harold Siddons,Eric Pohlmann,William Russell,Grard Oury,Sam Kydd,Peter Burton,David Peel,
                              Michael Mellinger,Alec Mango,Anthea Leigh,Eileen Way,Lisa Gastoni,Kay Callard and George Sandford.

                              This World War II men-on-a-mission film follows a British commando unit, led by Lt. Graham (Dirk Bogarde), ordered to sneak onto a Greek island and
                              take out two German airbases. Once they're on the island, though, the plan doesn't go well. The place is crawling with Nazis, and Graham tries
                              desperately to keep his men from losing hope. But after the commandos split into two groups, the mission turns suicidal when many of the men are
                              captured by Germans. Still, Graham must see it through.

                                    The Homesman 2014 (Via BBCi available until 14/05) A good western drama with a couple of funny moments concentrating on the interaction between
                                    two main characters and the three women who they are escorting....

                                      Morning Departure 1950 (Via Talking Pictures on Sky) of the time naval drama that is still watchable along with early roles for a few later household names recognisable on TV and the Big Scree...

                                      Starring:-John Mills,Nigel Patrick,Peter Hammond,Andrew Crawford,Michael Brennan,George Cole,Victor Maddern,Roddy McMillan,Frank Coburn,

As the necessary crew and equipment are brought in, it's a panicked race against time to get all the crew out alive.

                                          I thought it was a series of set piece cgi moments interspersed with a load of booring tosh to be honest.
