Is that the one starring Nigel Farage?

LOL !

I got to watch the new "Dad's Army" film on my outbound flight to the USA at the start of the month, and what a disappointment that was. Nothing like as good as the TV series or the original film.  I'd also have been pised off if I'd paid out good money to watch it

Really enjoyed The Railway Man, a low-key tale of a soldier from the 'Bridge on the River Kwai' railway who eventually meets and reconciles with one of his torturers.  Takes a few liberties, but at least not of the Pearl Harbour scale.

Ditto Queen & Country, a 2013 sequel to John Boorman's 1987 Hope & Glory.  The original is a tale of a boy growing up during the blitz, the sequel of his conscription in the fifties.  Both are blackly comic and highly enjoyable.

Found a website that allowed you to stream all the latest films and in a moment of weakness/hangover started to watch Grimsby (actually The Brothers Grimsby as it ws the US version) by Sasha Baron Cohen. What an utter pile of shite, it really plumbed new depths of unfunniness (sic?)

On a better note; finally got started watching The Wire (Idris Elba & Dominc West) and am now 10 episodes in and I'm completely hooked. Superb stuff. My Baltimore black street patois is also coming on a treat.

I enjoyed it too. I think it was on one evening a few weeks back. The flashback scenes were very moving.

Jason Bourne.

Saw it last night and it's of the genre, so nothing was a surprise. I enjoyed it (the 2nd one is my favourite Bourne film) and it has that typical Bourne twist at the end. One element that I felt was poor were the car chase in Vegas: too much short-clip action and it was a bit overly long for a not-all-that-good-car-chase. The bike chase was better. Plot had a nice twist in it but as I said, nothing surprising. Can't wait for it to be on ITV2 five times a week in a couple of years time.

Might watch the others actually.

A collection of thoughts, observations and insights of an airline pilot. It took me a while to get into it, I was expecting something like the Major Kong blog, rather than something that can read like a love letter to aviation at times. But enjoyable none the less.

Suicide Squad
Better than Batman vs Superman, but that's damning with faint praise.

Saw Suicide Squad a few days ago, I enjoyed it, it could have been better but it was ok.

Apparently the ultimate edition of BvS makes the film a lot better, there are 30 minutes of extra film and it tidies up the odd loose end and hole.

Just started up a sub of Netflix and have finished watching Jessica Jones S1. Very good. Can't say the same about Daredevil, though, which I have found tediously boring. These extended universe things where all the films and TV serieses are linked together is starting to get on me tits, though. It feels like I'm being forced to watch everything in case one show/film leaves a bit of plot in another that I won't comprehend if I don't bother watching it all....

We are watching Falling Skies on Netflix. I liked Noah Wyle in ER and liked the trailer when I saw it some years ago. It isn't as good as I thought it would be, but I am going to stick with it.

I watched it when it was on one of those obscure satellite channels a few years ago, it was ok but not great, it just seemed to lack something; can't put my finger on it though.

Alex, Tim, I can't recommend the book highly enough.  The film clearly does take a few liberties, but it downplays what actually happened to them:

Tale of the barely believable life of Neil Baldwin, a chap with learning difficulties  whose life follows a very interesting course, including time as a clown, and as Stoke City's kit man and sometime mascot.  Funny, touching and well worth a watch.

Yes, I believe.  We have a 'cinema club' with two other couples, and take it in turns to host evenings of food, drink and conversation that end with a film.  This was the last selection by one of them, and they'd seen it on the box in the timescale you describe.

Sounds dangerously like a Swingers' Club to me..

Away in Norway last week I managed to catch a couple of films I haven't seen before:

Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. Jesus, I'm glad I missed this first time round. I thought The Phantom Mincer was bad but this hit new depths in terms of poor plot, terrible acting and crap special effects. I have no idea how anyone thought this was suitable for release.

Straight Outa Compton. I thought this was very good and worthy of the plaudits heaped on it. Can't say I was a big fan of NWA back in the day but their influence is undoubted and they inspired a whole new generation of artists.

I've just been given this by a client - really looking forward to reading it.  Hill always struck me as not quite having the natural talent of the absolute best, but getting a well-deserved championship through grit and application - and staying a thoroughly nice guy through it all.

I'll quote myself here - a fascinating insight into Hill, and far from your typical sporting biography.  I think he was a very easy man to underestimate, and I suspect my comments about him above would have him rolling his eyes a little.  Mea culpa...

And only £7 in hardcover - a ideal stocking-filler to yourself, I reckon...

I watched the new Independence Day film at the weekend.
Not as bad as I suspected it would be but, hey thank God we have the Americans to help if this were ever to happen for real  

I also had the misfortune to watch a 'horror' called 'Lights Out'.
It's a current film, I believe, but please don't anybody consider watching it, it's shite.

We've loved it.  Part way into series 3 and it's not quite as good, though I seem to recall that Simon P said series 4 started very strongly.

And yes, everyone is horrible, with the possible exception of the guy who cooks the ribs...

I don't think its quite as good as the UK one but I watched that about 5 years ago so maybe I'm wrong.

Were not me what said it were good, I ain't seen it. Hopefully get around to it one day, though.

I've just binge watched the second series of Bosch on Amazon. Some of the acting is a little wooden, particularly the title role bloke, but the stories have been pretty good.

Watched the last two Mission Impossible films recently, too. The bit in number 4 where TC is climbing up the outside of the Burj Khalifa made my testes retract!

Watching Green Wing at the moment, which I was aware of when it aired but didn't watch.  Bizarre, and hilarious.

Kill List.  Promising, but not coherent enough for my tastes, and felt like two films forced to cohabit.

V/H/S.  Boring portmanteau found footage horror.

Grand Budapest Hotel.  Loved it.  Quirky, well-acted and interesting enough to pass by without being aware of the time.

That was one of the funniest things we saw for a long time.
It has a lot of the casts of Black Books/Spaced in it too.

No, I ditched Sky and rely on Netflix & Amazon Prime for my TV fix. I am watching The Walking Dead at the moment. Very enjoyable IMO. Much better than Falling Skies which bored me after two series.

I am considering a Now TV sub at £6.99 a month for he entertainment package but can make up my mind whether it's worth it or not. There are some deals on boxes and six months subs included which I am tempted by.

Yes. Really can't work out where they're trying to go with it. There are so many different storylines going on that I'm getting irritated with it. The whole thing is just so implausible, too. They 3D print the hosts, but then somehow fill the print outs with blood and guts. They also collect up all of the broken ones, repair them all in a few hours, even if a guest has blown their 3D printed brains out and slip them back without a single guest seeing. Do they knock everyone out with gas while they do all this?!

I also don't get why guests would keep going back year after year when it's always the same characters and set pieces. And another one, how are some of the hosts able to hurt the guests. Obnoxious beardy bloke was getting strangled by one and then got the shit kicked out of him later on.

The implausibility I don't mind as it is just science fiction but I agree it's difficult to see where it's going. They revealed the whole 'maze under the scalp' story line in th first episode but haven't really progressed it. I'll keep going with it for now but it's telling that I keep forgetting to catch up with it.

All I do know is that Dolores looks smoking hot in her new cowboy outfit.

Agree on the forgettable bit. I only watched this week's episode this morning.

We watched UP! last night.
It's a bit depressing for a kids cartoon film.

You should try watching Twingo GT, it's a bit more fun.

Some of the start is rather bleak (though I'd say moving), but Up! is just wonderful!

I was surprised as it certainly doesn't follow the usual Disney formula!

Watched a couple of the newer ones recently. Inside Out was a loadafuckinrubbish. Zootropolis on the other hand was really good. Debating whether to get Finding Dory next week, or not. Has mixed reviews, but the visuals on these CGI animated films are out of this world.

Also binge watched season 1 of Last Man On Earth on Amazon the other night. Amusing enough that I'll probably continue with it...

Awat from all this new stuff, re-watched Ice Cold in Alex last week.  Fantastic stuff.

Finding Dory is an excellent film, as was Zootroplis. There was a film on a short while ago called Inside Out, that was very clever.

Cars 3 is coming out next year, very exciting!

We flew god knows how many miles to Australia for 3 weeks and the most exciting thing was finding Nemo in a small coral in the Great Barrier Reef!

Managed to get a two pack of Finding Nemo/Dory on Blu Ray for 16 quid. Not watched it yet, though. Just started on the new Vikings season this morning. They've definitely ramped up the sexy...
