    Mission: Impossible II

    ★★★

    Thandie Newton and Dougray Scott are pretty bad, so is the love story and the slow motion twirly kicks, bit I really enjoy the rest. It’s onwards and upwards for the series from here.

    Four fun lead performances, especially Kelly Wenham who is sexy and crazy. Great fun.

    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.
