    Outlaw King

    ★★★

    A couple of strong moments interspersed with filler Game of Thrones fare. Hanging, drawing and quartering is truly the daddy of execution (s).

  • The Predator

    The Predator

    ★★★

    Nice and gory despite extensive CG but some ropy dialogue lets it down.
    Shane Black's understanding of ASID's is stuck in 1988.

    Magnificent. The first and last word in prison escape movies. The existential Great Escape.

    The Ipcress File

    ★★★★

    Excellent circus flick. Worth watching as companion piece to Tinker Talior Soldier Spy. Caine is believable as a reluctant agent with an insatiable curiosity. The Ken Adam design is as sublime as it is economic. One of the best espionage movies ever made. Not a spy film.
