    Every single scene here is just perfect, in fact the whole film is. Script, acting, plot, cinematography, soundtrack and direction are so impressive. Hell or High Water is a modern classic and captures the mood of modern America so well.

    ★★★½

    You could imagine this as a reality TV show following Viggo Mortensen and his family around for two weeks, the magnificent bastard.

    I watched this in Glasgow's GFT last night with a room of like-minded people who appreciate the cheesy wonder if this excellent sci-fi.

    The one liners were cheered and received mighty laughs, which made the film even better.

    I even thought the special effects stood up and the eye popping scenes were great.

    If you get the chance to see it in a cinema do so, it really enhances the film greatly.

    Highlight of the film was my brother hitting the giggles for about 5 minutes and starting me off.

    Great stuff.

  • Paths of Glory

    Paths of Glory

    ★★★★★

    An absolutely devastating WW1 film about a group of soldiers asked to perform an impossible mission by their ruthlessly ambitious captain. Three innocent men must stand trial for cowardice, defended by their Colonel a brilliant Kirk Douglas.

    Showing the futility of war and the position many soldiers must have been in being lead by clueless and ruthless leaders.

    This film blew me away.
