    Hi All,

    Star Trek (2009) The excellent reimagined reboot of the ST franchise easily watchable multiple time the 1st hour just flies past with second hour more or less the same. Highly recommended for ST or Sc-Fi fans in general..........

If humanity would survive, a rebellious young officer named James T.

    Hi All,
    The Long Memory 1953 (Via Talking Pictures channel Sky 328). Classic 50's B/W Drama still good to watch IMHO enjoyed the film thoroughly.....

    Starring:- John Mills,John McCallum,Elizabeth Sellars,Eva Bergh,Geoffrey Keen,Michael Martin Harvey,John Chandos,John Slater,Thora Hird,Vida Hope,Harold Lang,Mary Mackenzie,John Glyn-Jones,
    John Horsley,Fred Johnson,Laurence Naismith,Peter Jones,Christopher Beeny,Ernest Clark,Henry Edwards,Arthur Mullard,Denis Shaw,Julian Somers and Russell Waters.


    A man is released from jail after serving 12 years for a murder he didn't commit. Determined to seek revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment, he at first shuts himself away in a deserted barge on the Thames Estuary where he is kept under police surveillance and hounded by pressmen after a story. Only a pathetic refugee girl is slowly able to get through to him.

    Hi All,
    Thunder Rock 1942 (Via Talking Pictures channel on Sky 328). Classic 40's B/W supernatural drama similar in part to ghosts of Christmas past from a Christmas Carol where the main character is shown the reasons for some of the passengers being on the doomed ship that sank before the main character was born. If you like these type of films then you will not be disappointed I really enjoyed the film.....

    Starring:- Michael Redgrave,James Mason,Lilli Palmer,Barbara Mullen,Finlay Currie,Frederick Valk,Sybille Binder,Barry Morse,George Carney,Frederick Cooper,Jean Shepherd,Miles Malleson,
    A. E. Matthews,James Pirrie,Olive Sloane,Tommy Duggan,Tony Quinn,Harold Anstruther,Alfred Sangster,Victor Beaumont,Gerard Heinz and Milo Sperber.


    The film is based on the 1939 play Thunder Rock by Robert Ardrey, which had originally been a flop when staged in New York folding within three weeks,but proved to be considerably more successful in London where it ran for months in the West End. As the 1940s approach, British reporter David Charleston (Michael Redgrave) tries to alert the public to the political unrest that he believes is leading to another war with Germany -- but no one listens to him. So David gives up, retiring to a small town in the American Midwest, where he works as a lighthouse watchman. There he is visited by the ghosts of 19th-century ship captain Joshua Stuart (Finlay Currie) and his passengers, who try to persuade David to make a difference while he is alive.

    Hi All,
    Star Trek Nemesis 2003(Via Sky Cinema) Last of the NGC sadly as they where just getting into they're stride with this film, I still think they could make another but being 15 years further on I feel the opportunity has passed. If they will ever make a last one should include to include members of the DS9 and Voyager cast IMHO as these Tv series where of the same timeline but I fear they will continue with the new JJ Abrams Kelvin timeline that reinvented the ST franchise on the big screen.at least which I also love....

    As I say this though there are two ST films in the production phase one from director Quentin Tarantino which should be interesting as he wants an 18/R certificate for his The other ST film being a female directed by S.J.Clarkson and will be first into production http://trekmovie.com/2018/05/16/simo...n-development/

    Nemesis Starring:- Patrick Stewart,Jonathan Frakes,Brent Spiner,LeVar Burton,Michael Dorn,Gates McFadden,Marina Sirtis,Tom Hardy,Wil Wheaton,Whoopi Goldberg,Ron Perlman,Dina Meyer,
    John Berg,Kate Mulgrew,Shannon Cochran,Jude Ciccolella,Alan Dale,Wil Wheaton,Majel Barrett,Stuart Baird and Bryan Singer.


    Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) diverts the starship Enterprise from its scheduled trip to Cmdr. Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Counselor Troi's (Marina Sirtis) wedding to negotiate a peace treaty with the Romulans. Picard is shocked when Shinzon (Tom Hardy), the new Praetor of the Romulans, admits to being a clone of him. When the crew members discover a break-in on their computer, they are forced into a life-or-death battle to stop Shinzon's Warbird before it can destroy the Earth.

    Hi All,
    The 39 Steps 1935 (Via BBCi Available until 15:35/3:35pm 6/10). Classic Hitchcock - 30's B/W spy film, if your a fan of these early films you'll not be disappointed.....

    Starring:- Robert Donat,Madeleine Carroll,Lucie Mannheim,Godfrey Tearle,Peggy Ashcroft,John Laurie,Helen Haye,Frank Cellier,Wylie Watson,Gus McNaughton,Jerry Verno,Peggy Simpson

    The 39 Steps is a 1935 British thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll. The film is very loosely based on the 1915 adventure novel The Thirty-Nine Steps by John Buchan. It is about an everyman civilian in London, Richard Hannay, who becomes caught up in preventing an organization of spies called the 39 Steps from stealing British military secrets. After being mistakenly accused of the murder of a counter-espionage agent, Hannay goes on the run to Scotland with an attractive woman in the hopes of stopping the spy ring and clearing his name.

Now Picard and his crew must thwart the plot even while experiencing strange side effects from exposure to the planet's surface.

    Death Wish

    Bruce Willis plays a mild-mannered doctor who takes the law into his own hands after his wife is killed and his daughter put into a coma by would-be burglars.
    Having never seen the original, I can't comment as to whether the remake is better or worse than it, but the remake is reasonable entertainment. I think it should maybe have been a Die Hard film, though, as it has that vibe to it.

    A Bridge Too Far

    A classic war film. Need I say more?
