    The Last Film Festival

    ½ Watched 25 Oct, 2016

    Being the first person on Letterboxd to watch this was a big mistake, I should have let someone else discover how rotten this is, it really stinks.

    A sad end to a great career.

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Oct, 2016

    Very clever, very funny, but very repetitive. 90 minutes would have been perfect

    So much talent given so little to do.

    Beautifully shot Spanish addition to the serial killer procedural. Had me gripped from start to finish.

    I think this is probably a great doc as it delivered a huge amount in 90 minutes however, it feels like this story could have benefited from a 3-5 hour doc series that would have given us more time to absorb the details and have a more informed view on what happened.

    Playtime 1967

    That felt like the longest 2 hour film I have ever sat through. This is a truly tedious film that could easily have lasted 20 minutes or five hours and still told the audience no more or less. There are some interesting visual flourishes that lifted this to a 3 star instead of a 1, but that is no excuse to waste your time watching it.

    Go watch any Mr Bean film or TV episode instead!

    I love Statham, but can't forgive him this one. Poor.

    ★★★½ Watched 25 Sep, 2016

    Cliched bad high school class does good, but elevated to something worth seeing by a lovely performance by Michele Pfeiffer

    ★★★★★ Watched 22 Sep, 2016

    One of my most joyous experiences watching a film in years. I laughed, I cried, but always with a smile and look of wonder on my face. Wonderful performances all round. An unexpected treat.

  • Hue and Cry

    Hue and Cry 1947

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Sep, 2016

    First film out of Ealing Studios is a very entertaining boys own adventure, that makes great use of a war damaged London as a playground for the street kids who set out to solve a local crime spree.

  • Offside

    Interesting insight into life as a woman in Iran against the backdrop of football

  • The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years

    The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Sep, 2016

    Wonderful opportunity to see and hear the Beatles on the big screen and the teams behind the audio and visuals have done an amazing job and anyone with the slightest interest in music should go and see it.

    However this material was wasted on Ron Howard who is no documentary maker. I can't believe that he had to put Paul McCartney's name on the screen when showing him talking now. How could he not think that people who have turned…
