Kolchak: The Night Stalker & Kolchak: The Night Strangler - 7/10 each

 

TV movies from 1972 and 1973 that were the inspiration for The X-Files about an intrepid reporter called Kolchak who is assigned to investigate a series of murders, annoying politicians, the police, his bosses and anyone else he speaks to with his crusade for truth and justice as he becomes convinced that the perpetrators of the crimes have supernatural origins; firstly a vampire and secondly a man who kills people every 20 years in order to live forever (I think X-Files stole that storyline for their Eugene Victor Tooms character).

 

Definitely TV movie of the week in quality but the actor playing Kolchak is brilliant and he narrates his own adventures as in the likes of Dragnet, Police Squad or Fletch with humour. Silly but fun.

Abandoned  7/10

 

Incredible story of the 4 man crew of the trimaran Rose Noelle, that capsized in a freak storm then drifted at sea for 4 months.

If you don’t know the story (as I didn’t) watch it without googling it first.

Crímenes de familia (The Crimes that Bind)  6.5/10

 

Decent drama which is showing on Netflix , Spanish language.

 

A mother who always accepted her son can do no wrong, even when he is being charged for attempted murder of his wife- slowly realises she may have been wrong.

The Green Book.

 

set in 60s America, a black jazz pianist hires an ex bouncer as his driver to concerts, around some of the southern states.   A really good film, made me laugh, made me think.

 

9/10 for me.

I concur. Great film. Went to Cineworld to see it three times on release. I'll pick up the Blu-ray eventually.

The Owners.

One to avoid.

 

Nice to see Rita Tushingham again and she probably steals the limelight in what is nothing more than a hark back to the days of the old

'Hammer House Of Horror' films.

Despite good reviews the story line is poor with nothing new here at all.

 

While I luv nostalgia Is this the best we can do in 2020 ?

 

3/10

Room.   9/10

 

Beautiful, heart rending story of a woman and her little boy, kept captive in a small enclosed space.

Incredible acting performances from Brie Larson, but especially from Jacob Tremblay who I think was 9 when it was made.

Room.
 

I agree with nikki-red about this film.    The acting was very good especially from J Tremblay.

I’ve watched a few films lately and I have been disappointed with the endings, but I enjoyed how this film ended. 

9/10

The Devil All The Time - 9/10

 

Great cast for this very dark gothic noir Netflix film about murder and religious fervour set in poverty-stricken middle of nowhere Ohio in the 1950s and 1960s.

Parasite - borrowed the Blu-ray last week. Very good Korean film with a good plot. Won the Oscar for best film earlier this year. Worth a look.
