    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    After 10 minutes I was worried as I was hating it, but luckily when the hiest starts the film picks up. Stars of the show are Donald Glover and Joonas Suotamo who I loved as big Chewie. Alden Ehrenreich is fine as Solo, big shoes to fill and a pretty much impossible role to take over. It’s nothing new or special, but a decent action film.

    ★★★★

    Fun with loads going on, in fact it will need multiple views to catch it all. Some really funny stuff too, one scene later on stands out, it is brilliant.

    The new additions are good I really liked Domino and Zazie Beetz 🤤, Cable is a decent bad guy and Peter rules.

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