Night School - 7/10

Genuine belly laughs. Kevin Hart may not be for everyone but a busy cinema all laughing throughout says a lot

Ladda land - 8/10

Thai horror/drama/suspense.

I really enjoyed this, its creepy, jumpy, sad, so much more than the haunted house film it appears to be.

What a great film! To say its low budget its fantastic, like an extended episode of Black Mirror.
I liked it and have heard a few people mention black mirror in the same breath.

Good watching, but technical niggles about STEM, and the fact that the futuristic scenes all but vanished after the tenth minute mean it's a 6 for me.

They just widened the centre aisle at the local Odeon.

Arrival. A bit like Contact with Jodie foster but with less bells and whistles. Amy Adams is good, nice twist at the end but it didn't really float my boat overall. 6/10

I watched that last night, pretty good. Have you seen that on Netflix, The Eichmann Show? That is also very good. It is all about the producers and directors of the live TV broadcast of Eichmann's trial. Some excellent acting in this movie and an absolutely intense atmosphere throughout.

I think I watched that when it was broadcast on TV. Martin Freeman right?

A Star Is Born....9/10. Really enjoyed this film. It was much better than what I expected. Bradley Cooper's great, but it's Lady Gaga who steals the show. I'd have given it a 10/10, but the script writing didn't seem as strong about two thirds of the way through. The vocals performances from both actors are terrific.

thanks for that. I always thought Bradley Cooper was the poor mans Hugh Jackman, so Im pleased you rated the movie so high.

Yes he played the producer or studio head honcho, but Anthony LaPaglia was the actor who stole the film, imo, playing Leo Horwitz the Jewish producer/director of the event.

The Disaster Artist, bizarre film that won't be for everyone, but the more it went on, it grew on me, until I loved it in the end. James Franco is amazing as he directs and stars in the story of two wannabe actors ending up making their own movie in LA, also stars Franco's younger brother Dave. 9/10. It is a true story too..

I also watched this a couple of days ago, very atmospheric and well made. The Dan Stevens' over the top scowling in almost every scene kind of made me cringe. Michael Sheen played his part well, but the Stevens' part made me rate it a bit lower. 7/10

Bubba Ho-tep 8/10

Extraordinary film from 2002. Two nursing home residents discover and eventually battle an ancient egyptian evil that is preying upon the souls of their fellow inmates.

Not a horror or action film, more of an eloquent meditation on age and death.

It's narrated by Elvis Presley. Or someone who thinks they are. But don't let that put you off.

Well crafted, beautifully shot and great performances from the small cast. A very pleasant surprise.
