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.

Watched this last night- as you say, a great castand  good to see Tom Holland act so well in his role, giving a glimpe of his versatility (from playing the superhero). Must add that also applies to Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier- Marvel) and Robert Pattison (soon to play Batman).

 

I give the film around 8/10.

Enola Holmes - 6.5/10

 

Based on the young adult 'Enola Holmes Mystery' books and borrowing heavily style-wise from both the Robert Downey Jr and Benedict Cumberbatch versions of Sherlock Holmes, this isn't the most original film in the world but it's still pretty entertaining. Millie Bobby Brown is great as the title character and Henry Cavell isn't bad as Sherlock either.

Hello Funky 

Me and HTSBO watched it last night.

good innocent fun with no rat a tat tat of machines (ok a few entertaining fight scenes).

Well filmed olde worlde street scenes 

Nothing to tax the brain too much.

Probably give it a little bigger score of 7 - 7.5 out of 10.

Enjoyable family entertainment.

Well worth watching.

Just Mercy  9/10

 

Really well acted depiction of the story of the corrupt sentencing of Walter McMillian, and Bryan Stevenson, the newly graduated lawyer determined to see justice done.

 

Great, important film of a terrible true story, still relevant today.

Devyataya (the Ninth) 2019

 

Russian film, subtitles & English.

 

A mixture of 'the Occult', 'Mumbo jumbo' and a 'Detective story'.

Nice twist's and turns through out and set in 19th century Russian.

Very Alienist and Enola Holmes even. 

I'm a confirmed sucker for the Architecture of fine buildings,

Horse drawn Cabs and the Lady's fashion in these films.

 

Well worth watching and not much out of your life at 90mins long.

Probably nothing really outstanding but not that dire that it wasn't worth watching.

Good story line, good acting (including some English actors) and well filmed.

 

Fully recommended.  reasonable 8/10 

 

Enjoy.

'The Girl In The Spider's Web'. 

Do like me some Claire Foy.

Put a pully on watching it though. Looked freezing. Couldn't have been an easy film to make in that cold.

Story: 4 out of 5

Ambience: 5 out of 5

Today's lunchtime masterpiece is 'The Old Guard'. 

I've had a bit of a thing for Charlize Theron ever since her wonderful turn as Adele Invergordon in 'The Legend Of Bagger Vance'.  See her name attached, I'll watch.

 

But for this film, that's not all. As the villian you have Harry Melling. Mainly know for his Harry Potter role, but he's from the Troughton acting dynasty so he's a fine insight as to what treading the boards is all about.

Chiwetel Ejiofor ('Serenity', 'Doctor Strange' and 'Kinky Boots') and Anamaria Marinca ('Dr Who', 'Temple' and 'Tin Star') have roles playing Melling's people.  Both are also among my favourite actors and unfortunately are slightly underused here.

 

Basic premise; Immortals trying to do good are hunted by get-rich-quick scientists for experimentation. 

 

If it wasn't for COVID I reckon this would have been a great big-screen watch.  Sadly a limited audience has probably put the boot in for it being the first part in a franchise. 

8/10

Vampires v Brooklyn

6.5/10

 

I needed a film to watch with my 12 year old lad and this was perfect.

 

Quite entertaining and ideal for family viewing- no swearing or nudity.

Its a mixture of horror with some comedy but the film has a seriousness to it.

Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot.

Absolute rubbish.

Lived it all before. Feels like films about augmented super soldiers are commonplace. Nothing you’ve not seen elsewhere (and done better) in flicks like Terminator. The idea has been around so long it’s a tough sell. All the effects are stolen from The Matrix movies and the story borrows heavily from Marvel’s 70s Deathlok comic. In fact if you go back even further to the 50/60s guys like Dick, Bradbury or Heinlein, I’m sure they’ve covered it too.

Truly disappointing film and I’m gifting it two out of ten because the women in it are so hot (Eiza Gonzalez Reyna and Talulah Jane Riley-Milburn), otherwise it would be zero.

'Little Monsters'

Had loads of fun with this one this afternoon. The Aussies make GREAT films.

 
A kindergarten teacher and her male admirer protect a class of 5 years olds trapped in a petting zoo during yet another zombie apocalypse. I giggled all the way through. 
There's a very lovely (Neil Diamond) 'Sweet Caroline' scene, and I bet when Taylor Swift wrote 'Shake It Off' she never envisaged its use for fending off the undead. 
It's on Sky Cinema and worth an hour and a half of anyone's time.
An easy 9/10

The Trial of the Chicago 7

 

9/10

 

This is a great depiction of a not very well known story. It’s well written and very well acted, with a few humorous moments to lighten what is actually a really serious story.

 

Really enjoyed it.
