    Hi All,
    A Shot In The Dark 1964 (Via Talking Pictures Channel/Sky 328) Classic very funny Peter Sellers comedy in the film that started the series based on the original 1963 Pink Panther film Clouseau character which are all good fun to watch still to this day IMHPO. After Peter's death the others lost that vital comic ingredient IMO yet they still produced more. You can search Youtube for the panther outtake's one of the funniest has to be the lift scene where one of the cast farts (intentionally) and all are corpesing ...

    Starring:- Peter Sellers,Elke Sommer,George Sanders,Herbert Lom,Tracy Reed,Graham Stark,Moira Redmond,Vanda Godsell,Maurice Kaufmann,Ann Lynn,
    David Lodge ,Andr Maranne,Martin Benson,Burt Kwouk,Reginald Beckwith,Douglas Wilmer,Bryan Forbes,Andr Charrise,Howard Greene,John Herrington Jack Melford, Victor Baring,Victor Beaumont,Tutte Lemkow,Hurtado De Cordoba Ballet,Fred Hugh,Rose Hill and the Tahitian Dance Group. corpse

    A chambermaid at the Ballon residence in Paris is accused of murdering her lover. Against the wishes of Chief Inspector Dreyfuss, the infamous Clouseau is assigned to the case. Death follows the maid wherever she goes, yet Clouseau is stubbornly convinced of her innocence.

    Hi All,
    I, Daniel Blake 2016 ( Via the BBCi ) IMHO-I highly recommend this honest and very emotional at times portrayal of this countries benefit system and how it affects normal people. Showing the everyday struggles of two everyday folk who have to deal with bureaucracy at it's worst, the sad reality is the film is spot on for many in similar circumstances in the UK and for anybody reading this opinion who thinks I am talking out of my backside until your in that position personally you will never understand that.........

    Starring:- Dave Johns,Hayley Squires,Dylan McKiernan,Briana Shann,Kate Rutter,Kema Sikazwe,Steven Richens and Gavin Webster.

    Daniel Blake (Dave Johns) is a 59-year-old widowed carpenter who must rely on welfare after a recent heart attack leaves him unable to work. Despite his doctor's diagnosis, British authorities deny Blake's benefits and tell him to return to his job. As Daniel navigates his way through an agonizing appeal process, he begins to develop a strong bond with a destitute, single mother (Hayley Squires) who's struggling to take care of her two children

    Hi All,
    27vet - Ralph I had heard since that the film contains many scenes in which the Old Glory features so I think the main problem was with just that one scene on the moon ? It was sad really to see such outrage but I do understand why and in all honesty it shouldn't have been cut just for PC reasons. I don't know why they thought the need was there to cut it as it is an historical fact.
    Whether most people agree or not history should be taught to include both good and bad historical points no matter what they are, you cannot hide history through white washing out certain history by being PC IMPO, how are people meant to learn if we alter historical fact ?

    Back to the thread, I watched the Ipcress File 1965 over the Christmas period via BBCi, despite it's age still a notable Michael Caine film with the usual mix of 60's era co-stars and bit part actors that you will recognise, all in all a very enjoyable espionageish film to us old farts......

    Starring:- Michael Caine,Guy Doleman,Nigel Green,Sue Lloyd,Gordon Jackson,Aubrey Richards,Frank Gatliff,Thomas Baptiste,Oliver MacGreevy,Freda Bamford,Pauline Winter, Anthony Blackshaw,Barry Raymond,David Glover,Stanley Meadows,Peter Ashmore,Michael Murray,Anthony Baird,Tony Caunter,Douglas Blackwell and Glynn Edwards.

    Tasked with investigating the kidnappings and brainwashed reappearances of top scientists, including Dr. Radcliffe (Aubrey Richards), the insubordinate British spy Harry Palmer (Michael Caine) navigates his way through criminals, secret agents, and his superiors (Nigel Green, Guy Doleman). While attempting to bring in the suspect Bluejay (Frank Gatliff), Palmer discovers a mysterious audiotape labeled "IPCRESS," an inconspicuous, but ominous, piece of evidence.

    The last film I saw in a cinema was Jaws the year it was released!
    Call me a misery-guts if you like but I find most films to be contrived and boring.

    Good day fpr War films, on TV today. "Dambusters" on right now, and "633 Squadron" on later.

    Forget or just ignore any controversies etc. and just sit back and enjoy.

    Sorry I've not checked in on here in a while - have only watched a couple of new films recently!

    Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

    Starring Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, and Joseph Mazzello (yes, the little boy from Jurassic Park!) as John Deacon.
    Flawed, but very enjoyable, biopic of the Queen frontman, from his joining of the band to the Live Aid concert in 1985 (which I remember watching on TV!). Worth a watch, even if you're not a die hard Queen fan. 4.5/5

    Overlord (2018)

    US troops are dropped over the Normandy beachhead to bring down a radar tower which could threaten the invasion fleet, but discover a much, much more sinister plot involving the villagers nearby. 4/5

    The Tiger (2015)

    A South Korean film about a retired hunter forced to pick up his rifle in order to hunt down the last Siberian tiger in the kingdom. Although the tiger acts like it's just escaped from The Matrix, the film is surprisingly good, and a little sad at the same time. 4/5

    Hi All,
    Kidnapped 1971 (Via Talking Pictures channel Sky 328). Dated now and probably historically inaccurate by todays standards ? None the less still watchable and you can forgive Michael Caine's Scottish accent, it's of it's time so not everybody would like this drama., but I did and that's the point....................

    Starring:- Michael Caine,Lawrence Douglas,Vivien Heilbron,Trevor Howard,Claire Nielson,Jack HawkinsDonald Pleasence,Gordon Jackson,Andrew McCulloch,Freddie Jones,Jack Watson
    Peter Jeffrey,Roger Booth,Geoffrey Whitehead and Terry Richards.


    Following a bloody defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, a naive young man, David Balfour, is cheated of his inheritance by an avaricious uncle.

    Hi All,
    Singularity 2017 (Via Sky Cinema). A low budget production and not what I thought it was going to be, more of a Sci-Fi love story aimed at teenagers, just a watch and forget film with a couple of known stars...

    Starring:- John Cusack,Carmen Argenziano,Julian Schaffner,Jeannine Wacker and Eileen Grubba.

    In 2020, a supercomputer deems mankind a threat and launches an all-out attack. Nearly a century later, two teenagers struggle to survive in the rubble of a ruined world, hoping to reach a sanctuary where humans live without fear of robots.

    Hi All,
    27vet - Did they restore the missing flag that caused a little controversy ?

    The Justice League - 2017 (Via Sky Cinema) Despite the Superman moustache cover up , at times though it seemed a bit video gamey viewing saying that I forgave these two errors and enjoyed the film, just another way to forget about the worlds troubles .......

    Starring:- Ben Affleck,Henry Cavill,Amy Adams,Gal Gadot,Ezra Miller,Jason Momoa,Ray Fisher,Jeremy Irons,Diane Lane,Connie Nielsen,J. K. Simmons,Ciarn Hinds,Sergi Constance,
    Nick McKinless, Aurore Lauzeral,David Thewlis,Robin Wright,Amber Heard,Julian Lewis Jones,Francis Magee,Joe Morton,Billy Crudup,(Joe Manganiello and Jesse Eisenberg End Credits)
    Michael McElhatton,Holt McCallany, and Marc McClure.


    Fuelled by his restored faith in humanity, and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly-awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes in Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash, it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

    I watched "First Man" on Tuesday in the USA. It is a biography of Neil Armstrong. Pretty good.
