    Hi All,
    Annon 2018 (Via Sky Cinema) The film starts off really well then flat lines a bit, then picks back up again. So on the whole if you like Sci-Fi you'll should enjoy this film, the only Distraction /Irritation IMPO is the info on the screen that the films population have to live with, but again that aside I enjoyed the film....

    Starring:-Clive Owen,Amanda Seyfried,Colm Feore,Sonya Walger,Mark O'Brien,Joe Pingue,Iddo Goldberg,Sebastian Pigott,Rachel Roberts and
    Toyin Ishola.

    In the near future, private memories are recorded and crime has almost ceased to exist. But in trying to solve a series of murders, troubled detective
    Sal Frieland stumbles upon a young woman known only as "The Girl." She has no identity, no history and is invisible to the cops. Sal realizes this may
    not be the end of crime, and it could be the beginning of it.

      Jaws 3

      Dennis Quaid and Bess Armstrong take on a giant great white shark that has set up home in a giant Sea World park.

      I know the sequels got progressively worse as time went on, but they're still fun to watch!

        Deadpool 2

        The Merc with a mouth is back and he is bringing friends. Lots of action, lots of blood, lots of breaking the fourth wall and some great laughs.


          Solo: A Star Wars Story

          Telling the tale of Han Solo and how he met Chewie and got the Millennium Falcon. I enjoyed it and it was good to get some back story on a well known character.


            Deadpool 2

            More madness with the red-suited lunatic, and this time he's brought along some friends.

            Absolutely blinding film - haven't laughed so much in ages, and, amazingly, for a Marvel film, it has some surprisingly touching, genuinely emotional scenes that hit you right in the feels.

            I think it might be one of those rare things where the sequel is actually better than the original!

              Maigret starring Rowan Atkinson.
              Possibly one of the finest TV Film Detective Dramas I have seen in a long time.
              Put your comic prejudiuces to one side and watch this.
              Totally engrossing.


                Hi All,
                War For The Planet Of The Apes 2017 (Via SKY Cinema). The third in the series of recent remakes, not as strong as the previous two but none the
                less watchable just the same if you like 'The Planet Of The Apes' storyline.....

                Andy Serkis as Caesar,Steve Zahn as "Bad Ape",Karin Konoval as Maurice,Ty Olsson as Red,Michael Adamthwaite as Luca,
                Judy Greer as Cornelia,Sara Canning as Lake,Max Lloyd-Jones as Blue Eyes,Devyn Dalton as Cornelius,Aleks Paunovic as Winter.

                Amiah Miller,Woody Harrelson,Gabriel Chavarria,

                Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless colonel (Woody Harrelson). After the apes
                suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings
                them face to face, Caesar and the colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both of their species and the future
                of the planet.

                Looks like there will be more on a personal note I am looking forward to the next one..

                  Hi All,
                  King Lear (Via BBCi - available until 27/5) Enjoyed the well acted film on the whole and liked the fact it was set in modern era...

                  Sarring:-Anthony Hopkins,Emma Thompson,Emily Watson,Florence Pugh,Jim Broadbent,Andrew Scott,John Macmillan,Jim Carter,Christopher Eccleston
                  Tobias Menzies,Anthony Calf and Karl Johnson.

                  The 80-year-old King Lear divides his kingdom among his daughters, Goneril, Regan and Cordelia, according to their affection for him. Cordelia refuses to
                  flatter him, so he banishes her. Having acquired power, Goneril and Regan expel their father from their homes. At the same time, Lear's prime minister,
                  Gloucester, is betrayed by his son Edmund and his other son, Edgar, is forced to go into hiding. Lear becomes mad, Gloucester is blinded: both the
                  kingdom and the family collapse into chaos and warfare. Lear and Cordelia are reunited - for a brief moment love reigns, then tragedy descends.



                    Hi All,
                    DUNKIRK 2017 (Via SKY Cinema) The film is based around Operation Dynamo with as the director freely admits a little artistic/historic licence
                    thrown in i.e. To make the film audience distinguish between Luftwaffe and RAF aircraft the German aircraft had the nose cowling painted yellow when
                    in reality this never happened till after the operation as I am sure most on this forum already know.

                    I enjoyed the film for what it was a tribute to those involved. Personally I would have liked to have seen a fourth viewpoint from the forces fighting the
                    rear-guard action allowing the evacuation to be completed. If you view it as a war film and get over the minor inaccuracies over true facts you should be
                    ok with it like I was.

                    Starring:-Fionn Whitehead,Tom Glynn-Carney,Jack Lowden,Harry Styles,Aneurin Barnard,James D'Arcy,Barry Keoghan,Kenneth Branagh,Cillian Murphy,
                    Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy.

                    In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.

                      Hi All,
                      Blade Runner 2049 2017(Via SKY Cinema) Being honest I prefer the original although this is a decent enough sequel to complete the Decker story. It's
                      a bit drawn out at times as tends to drag the viewer along, but on the whole if you just like the Sci-Fi genre you should be able to cope with this film even
                      at nearly three hours long (163mins), I enjoyed it for what it was and that's the point is it not ?.....

                      Starring:-Ryan Gosling,Harrison Ford,Ana de Armas,Sylvia Hoeks,Robin Wright,Mackenzie Davis,Carla Juri,Lennie James,Dave Bautista,Jared Leto,
                      Edward James Olmos,Barkhad Abdi,Hiam Abbass,David Dastmalchian,Wood Harris and Sallie Harmsen.

                      Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's
                      left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who's been missing for 30 years.

                        Extremely tediously booring film but almost worth it for the unintended hallarious ending (first time I've heard the cinema laugth during a horror movie).
                        Probably best left to dvd after a few beers.


                          Hi All,
                          Aftermath 2017. (Via SKY Cinema) Another different role for Arnie (Obviously his age catching him up ) Although the film has some quite moments
                          the film on the whole is watchable a shows that Arnie can act it also looks at the two sides to each story saying, as you can have empathy for both main
                          characters in this drama which I enjoyed...

                          Starring:-Arnold Schwarzenegger,Scoot McNairy,Maggie Grace,Martin Donovan,Hannah Ware,Mariana Klaveno,Kevin Zegers,Larry Sullivan and Teri Clark Linden.

                          Two strangers' lives become inextricably bound together after an error by an air traffic controller (Scoot McNairy) causes the death of a construction foreman's (Arnold Schwarzenegger) wife and daughter.



                            Arnie does one called Annie where his daughter becomes a Zombie. I liked them both.


                              Hi All,
                              hampden98 - Yes another great film they both prove that he can act rather than the I'll be back method he is so famous for...

                              T2 Trainspotting 2017 (Via SKY Cinema). I enjoyed this rather funny film and thought it was a true sequel to the first film that so many sequels fail
                              to live up to or surpass the original IMHO.....

                              Starring:-Ewan McGregor (Renton Hamish Haggerty as young Renton/Ben Skelton as 9-year-old Renton/Connor McIndoe as 20-year-old Renton)
                              Ewen Bremner (Aiden Haggarty as 9-year-old Spud/John Bell as 20-year-old Spud)
                              Jonny Lee Miller (Williamson Logan Gillies as 9-year-old Simon/James McElvar as 20-year-old Simon)
                              Robert Carlyle (Daniel Jackson as young Begbie/Daniel Smith as 9-year-old Begbie/Christopher Mullen as 20-year-old Begbie
                              Kelly Macdonald,Shirley Henderson,James Cosmo,Anjela Nedyalkova,Steven Robertson,Elek Kish,Simon Weir,Bradley Welsh,Pauline Turner,
                              Kyle Fitzpatrick(Charlie Hardie as 9-year-old Fergus),Scot Greenan,Eileen Nicholas,Kevin McKidd (Elijah Wolf as 9-year-old Tommy and Michael Shaw as 20-year-old Tommy)

                              First there was an opportunity, then there was a betrayal. Twenty years later, Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to the only place that he can ever
                              call home. There waiting for him are old buddies Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). Sorrow, loss, joy,
                              vengeance,hatred, love, fear, regret, self-destruction and mortal danger are also all lined up and ready to welcome him

                                Hi All,
                                The Black Tower 2017 (Via SKY Cinema) I really enjoyed this Sci-Fi/Fantasy film that didn't do to well at the box office and was panned by many,
                                whether this was because of more popular films released at the same time I don't know ? There are plans for a sequel and a Tv series if these come to
                                fruition will be another entirely ? On the whole if you like the genre you shouldn't be to disappointed as there are some quite good specialFX that only add
                                to the film IMPO....

                                Starring:- Idris Elba,Matthew McConaughey,Tom Taylor,Claudia Kim,Fran Kranz,Abbey Lee,Jackie Earle Haley,Katheryn Winnick (Vikings),Dennis Haysbert,
                                Michael Barbieri,Jos Ziga, and Nicholas Hamilton.

                                Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), the last Gunslinger, is locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim (Matthew McConaughey), also known as the Man in
                                Black. The Gunslinger must prevent the Man in Black from toppling the Dark Tower, the key that holds the universe together. With the fate of worlds at
                                stake, two men collide in the ultimate battle between good and evil.



                                  Hi All,
                                  Alien Covenant 2017 (Via SKY Cinema) Again liked this addition to the franchise took to me back to the original with that haunting few notes every
                                  now and then from the flute. I not a big fan of the CGI effects in films unless done well and blend in seamlessly I much prefer the practical effects, apart
                                  from that small grumble if you like the Alien franchise you can watch this and if you just like the Sci-Fi genre then that should also be the case.

                                  There was talk of two further prequels in the franchise but as it stands they are actively just writing the one at the moment....

                                  Starring:-Michael Fassbender,Katherine Waterston,Billy Crudup,Danny McBride,Demin Bichir,Carmen Ejogo,Jussie Smollett,Callie Hernandez,Amy Seimetz, Nathaniel Dean,Alexander England,Benjamin Rigby,Uli Latukefu and Tess Haubrich.

                                  Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, members (Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup) of the colony ship Covenant discover what they
                                  think to be an uncharted paradise. While there, they meet David (Michael Fassbender), the synthetic survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The mysterious world soon turns dark and dangerous when a hostile alien life-form forces the crew into a deadly fight for survival.
