    I don't know what one you watched, but the 1973 original with Steve McQueen & Dustin Hoffman is brilliant. The remake is pretty good too, but I didn't really see the need for it.

    I love the original. Canít go far wrong with Steve McQueen. Suppose the remake was just about watchable in its own right but I stopped watching half way through as Steve McQueen & Dustin Hoffman it ainít!

    The Quiet Place 2, watched this last night was expecting it to ruin the first film as I really liked that but I thought the second was also really good, enjoyed it couple o big jumps a lot of tension.

    Also watched a film called Wrath of Man with Jason Statham think itís a Guy Ritchie film typical action man stuff but again pretty decent without troubling any award ceremonies.

    No Country for Old Men, currently on Netflix. If you havenít seen it before youíre in for a treat. Itís actually a faultless movie.

    United States v Billie Holiday.
    The land of the free unless you sing a song they don't like. I'll have to watch the Diana Ross version as I don't remember that much about it after 40 years.

    Dune.
    Really enjoyed it.
    I just have an awful feeling the next instalment is going to be rubbish, donít ask me why.

    Finch - like a cross between Chappie, Damnation Alley and Castaway. Couldn't help thinking that the robot sounded like Borat on occasion.

    Pretty enjoyable mind you. 7/10

    Enjoyed Dune as well, thought it could have given us a bit more before the 2nd part but I'm looking forward to seeing part 2 none the less

    Went to see Ghostbusters earlier, loved it. Itís clearly made with Ghostbusters fan boys, like me, in mind. Might not stand up as well watching it standalone and not knowing the franchise. Ticked all boxes Iíd have wanted a follow up to tick though.

    Saw it yesterday. Absolutely loved it. I raved about it so much that my (grown up) kids are away to see it tonight.

    Took the family tonight - all of us enjoyed it. Great fun.

    Million times better than that last female Ghostbusters effort.

    Seen the French Dispatch last Saturday.
    A week later I'm still trying to figure out what the frig I watched?
    I genuinely can't tell you if it was as poor as I thought it was because I don't think I'm clever enough to understand it.
    A very self indulgent story, told poorly, by Wes Anderson.

    I feel exactly the same, having watched it last week.

    If this wasn't a film by a well known director, with some reasonably famous people in it, no film studio would have touched that pile of crap with a barge pole.

    It was three totally random, totally nonsense, 'stories' artificially squeezed together into a narrative of a closing down newspaper.

    In the words of my wife (who is actually into art-house movies) when leaving the cinema... "WTF was that meant to be?"

    Are you a Wes Anderson fan?

    He's like a genre of his own.... an acquired taste perhaps. Not seen this one yet.

    I went to a surprise movie at the Cameo last week. It ended up being "C'Mon, C'Mon" starring Joaquin Phoenix as a documentary maker who has to look after his young nephew unexpectedly.

    I'm usually a sucker for this type of indie stuff..... lovely black and white cinematography, not much happens, liberal modern families with kids who talk like 30 year olds. Anyway this was pretty dire stuff. Nowhere near as profound or moving as it seemed to think it was.

    Avoid.

    I like most of his movies, a lot.
    Loved The Grand Budapest Hotel, Fantastic Mr Fox (Jarvis Cocker is brilliant in that), Isle of Dogs, The Royal Tenenbaums,,,, but the French Dispatch is very poor by his own standards.

    I really liked The Grand Budapest Hotel.


    This latest one was just self-indulgent garbage.

    I was disappointed that I wouldnít catch it at the cinema but sounds like Iíve dodged a bullet.
