    Hi All,
    This Is Spinal Tap via (Sky Cinema -Returning Favourite) Just an enjoyable mocumentary romp through the lives of a fictional bands life on the road
    during their return tour that definitely has funny moments i.e.The Smalls airport metal detector scene,Jeanine David's girlfriend dubly(Dolby) and
    trying to influence a new look for the band with costumes and face paint scenes,Not finding the stage,The 18" Stonehenge model stage prop lowering,
    The empty album signing promotion and the D'minor trilogy-Lick My Love Pump.....

    Starring:-Michael McKean,Christopher Guest,Harry Shearer,Rob Reiner,Tony Hendra,R.J. Parnell,David Kaff,June Chadwick,Bruno Kirby,Ed Begley-Jr,
    Danny Kortchmar,Fran Drescher,Patrick Macnee,Julie Payne,Dana Carvey,Sandy Helberg,Zane Buzby,Billy Crystal,Paul Benedict,Howard Hesseman,
    Paul Shortino,Lara Cody,Andrew J. Lederer,Russ Kunkel,Victory Tischler-Blue,Joyce Hyser,Gloria Gifford,Paul Shaffer,Archie Hahn,Charles Levin,
    Anjelica Huston,Donald Kendrick Fred Willard,Wonderful Smith and Robert Bauer.

    "This Is Spinal Tap" shines a light on the self-contained universe of a metal band struggling to get back on the charts, including everything from its
    complicated history of ups and downs, gold albums, name changes and undersold concert dates, along with the full host of requisite groupies, promoters,
    hangers-on and historians, sessions, release events and those special behind-the-scenes moments that keep it all real.

    Hi All,
    Triple Cross (Via BBCi player) Another classic WWII espionage drama (featuring Gert Frobes military band impression yet again ) that is watchable especially if your into the genre....

    Starring:-Christopher Plummer,Romy Schneider,Trevor Howard,Gert Fröbe,Claudine Auger,Yul Brynner,Harry Meyen,Georges Lycan (fr),Jess Hahn,
    Gil Barber,Jean-Claude Bercq (fr),Jean Claudio,Robert Favart,Bernard Fresson and Clément Harari.

    Safecracker Eddie Chapman (Christopher Plummer) is languishing in prison on the island of Jersey when the Nazis arrive. An adept manipulator of situations, Chapman convinces the Germans to use him to spy on the British. And when the would-be traitor arrives home, he convinces the English to use him as a double agent -- in exchange for a full pardon. So begins the hair-raising true story of a professional thief turned self-sacrificing World War II patriot.

    Posing as a priest, he attempts to lead the women to safety.

    Good film !

    We watched "Goodbye Christopher Robin" on HdOnline at the weekend. About A A Milne writing Winnie the Pooh.
    I thought it was going to be a kids film, but it was really quite good.

    Hi All,
    Millenium 1989 (Via Talking Pictures channel on Sky) This Sci-Fi film admittedly rather dated now but at the I first watched I thought it was a decent
    film,today it seems to be just a run of the mill B-Movie but enjoyable just the same just at the start of the CGI revolution that followed on from Star Wars...

    Starring:-Kris Kristofferson,Jamie Shannon,Cheryl Ladd,Daniel J. Travanti,Robert Joy,Lloyd Bochner,Brent Carver,David McIlwraith,Maury Chaykin,
    Al Waxman,Lawrence Dane and Thomas Hauff.

    Two jetliners collide, and Bill Smith (Kris Kristofferson) is put in charge of investigating the accident. But something isn't adding up about the crash -- from
    the strange comments on the flight recorder to the unidentifiable object found in the wreckage. What Smith doesn't know is that time travellers have
    taken the ill-fated passengers to repopulate the future. To ensure their mission's success, they send a gorgeous operative, Louise (Cheryl Ladd), to the
    past to hamper Smith's work.

    Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.
    Outside of the ignorant biased view by left wing Hollywood of anyone who live between New York and L.A. still a very, very good movie.

    Hi All,
    Panic In The Streets 1950 (Via Talking Pictures Channel on Sky) Classic B&W 50's drama which I dare say a host of modern films have copied the
    theme in recent years if you like the genre you'll like this....

    Starring:-Richard Widmark,Paul Douglas,Barbara Bel Geddes,Jack Palance,Zero Mostel,Alexis Minotis,Dan Riss,Tommy Cook and Pat Walshe.

    After Dr. Clint Reed (Richard Widmark) is called in to supervise an autopsy of a unknown man, he discovers that the John Doe died of pneumonic plague.
    Revealing his discovery to the mayor and city officials, Reed is informed that he has 48 hours before the public will be told about a potential outbreak.
    Joined by Captain Tom Warren (Paul Douglas) and his wife, Nancy (Barbara Bel Geddes), Reed must race against time to find out where the unknown man
    came from.

    Hi All,
    John Wick 2 (Via Sky Cinema) I enjoyed the film but did not think it was as good as the first, having said that it is still good viewing none the less
    being full of fast action throughout the film. ( One funny moment was when Wick and his targets bodyguard are firing at each other while walking in the train station ) Must sat though I am still not a fan of CGI and blood would like to see makers go back to practical effects as it's more realistic IMPO..

    Starring:-Keanu Reeves,Riccardo Scamarcio,Common as Cassion,Laurence Fishburne,Ruby Rose,John Leguizamo,Ian McShane,Bridget Moynahan,Lance Reddick, Thomas Sadoski,David Patrick Kelly,Peter Stormare,Franco Nero,Peter Serafinowicz,Claudia Gerini andTobias Segal.

    Retired super-assassin John Wick's plans to resume a quiet civilian life are cut short when Italian gangster Santino D'Antonio shows up on his doorstep with a gold marker, compelling him to repay past favors. Ordered by Winston, kingpin of secret assassin society The Continental, to respect the organization's ancient code, Wick reluctantly accepts the assignment to travel to Rome to take out D'Antonio's sister, the ruthless capo atop the Italian Camorra crime syndicate.

    Bone Tomahawk
    A cowboy and Indians western that is oddly different.
    Stars Kurt Russell.
    It was definitely not what I expected.

    Invested £21 for two tickets to see Darkest Hour. Gary Oldfield as Churchill and Kristin Scott Thomas gave excellent performances but, I left my seat feeling slightly underwhelmed - yet again.

    Perhaps it is all the pre release hype and hysteria inducing an expectation never to be realised ? The film correctly highlighted the Churchill/Halifax contention and its resolution. There was a lot of social padding including a ludicrous scene on the London underground railway featuring Churchill the autocratic aristocrat hobnobbing with the peasantry !

    That would never have occurred. Do contemporary film producers set out to include as much make believe social content as they consider necessary to establish their 'right-on' credentials ? It seems to me they do just that.

    Their was more than enough content in this story of 1940s political manouvering to sustain the duration of the film, without resort to faking certain scenes just to satisfy the fluffy feminist lobby and cosy modern preconceptions.

    I've been on a bit of a Stephen King binge this week, for some reason!

    Started with Cat's Eye, then an old favourite with Sleepwalkers, before moving on to some of King's classic works - Christine, Silver Bullet, Cujo and Misery.

    I think I still have a few to do!

    Regardless of it being quite possibly the worst of the franchise, I still watch it when it's on TV!

    Hi All,
    The Dairy Of Anne Frank 1959 Although basically a film about a young girl in her teenage years documenting and seeing through her eyes the best and
    the worst we as humans have been capable of. You are allowed a glimpse of what it must have been like to be hiding in terror 24/7 where the smallest of noises could lead to capture and ultimately death. The film makes you truly thankful for the life you live and any complaints pale into significance compared to what this girl on the verge of womanhood and the Jewish people from children to the elderly experienced during the war...

    Sarring:-Millie Perkins,Joseph Schildkraut,Shelley Winters,Richard Beymer,Gusti Huber,Lou Jacobi,Diane Baker,Douglas Spencer,Dodie Heath and
    Ed Wynn.

    In Nazi-occupied Holland in World War II, shopkeeper Kraler hides two Jewish families in his attic. Young Anne Frank (Millie Perkins) keeps a diary of
    everyday life for the Franks and the Van Daans, chronicling the Nazi threat as well as family dynamics. A romance with Peter Van Daan causes jealousy between Anne and her sister, Margot. Otto Frank (Joseph Schildkraut) returns to the attic many years after the eventual capture of both families and finds his late daughter's diary.



    An short insight to the above. Documentary DVD:-contact Mrs. Kroon at Pieter van Huystee Producties in The Netherlands: curien@pvhfilm.nl

    Hi All,
    Birdman 2015 (Via BBC2) An excellent drama well acted by the cast with an easy to follow storyline that passes surprisingly quickly...

    Starring:-Michael Keaton,Edward Norton,Zach Galifianakis,Andrea Riseborough,Amy Ryan,Emma Stone,Naomi Watts,Lindsay Duncan,Merritt Wever,
    Jeremy Shamos,Katherine O'Sullivan,Damian Young,Bill Camp,Frank L. Ridley and Benjamin Kanes.

    Former cinema superhero Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) is mounting an ambitious Broadway production that he hopes will breathe new life into his
    stagnant career. It's risky, but he hopes that his creative gamble will prove that he's a real artist and not just a washed-up movie star. As opening night
    approaches, a castmate is injured, forcing Riggan to hire an actor (Edward Norton) who is guaranteed to shake things up. Meanwhile, Riggan must deal
    with his girlfriend, daughter and ex-wife.

    Hi All,
    What doesn't Kill You 2008 (Via BBC1) Based on real life events involving the films director and his time mixed with the Irish Mob this nice little film

    Eddie J Fernandez,Michael Yebba,Michael Elian,Brett G Smith,Max Martini and Candice Accola.

    deeper into the criminal cesspool, Paulie plans one last heist, one that he hopes can pull them both out of their dead-end lives.

    The Howling

    One of my favourites from my childhood. Still great. Dee Wallace is charming as always, and the werewolf effects are still pretty decent.

    The Naked Gun trilogy.

    Leslie Nielsen at his comic best in the classic film series.

    Open Water

    Fact-based drama in which two American tourists are left behind by a dive boat. Enduring jellyfish, storms, sharks, and each other, will they survive their ordeal?

    I haven't seen it in a long time. Better than I remember it being.

    Deep Blue Sea

    Genetically-enhanced super mako sharks go on the rampage in the research lab that created them, with predictable but fun results. Those animatronic sharks are still awesome, though!

    Bad Taste

    Peter Jackson's oft-forgotten first feature film, a good, old-fashioned alien invasion splatterfest, with PLENTY of blood, guts and dismemberment. And it's bloody hilarious, too.
