    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull


    Saw this at the cinema when it was released, don't think I've re-watched it until now, after re-watching the first three Indiana Jones films over the last few days. This time I think I enjoyed it far more - held up very well in the sequence. Disagree that it's the weakest of the four.

    Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves


    Enjoyed a lot as a late Sunday afternoon film 😊 

    More humour than I’d anticipated - I’d say they were aiming to follow in the footsteps of The Princess Bride. Worked well, but not quite that well.

    Death on the Nile


    Branagh makes a stylish Poirot and a stylish, enjoyable Christie adaptation. Would rank Death on the Nile above Murder on the Orient Express but both have made me want to read the original novels.

    Don’t view with the expectation that the film will fairly represent the books of the Alexandria Quartet. Mixed up and confused, but recognisable characters, scenes and lines from Durrell’s work. Missing and distorting so much but I did enjoy the experience - not nearly as bad as some reviews suggest!

    The film is visually impressive (in parts excessive in a late 1960s way) and quite atmospheric. The performances of Dirk Bogarde, Michael York, Anouk Aimée, Anna Karina and others are worth seeing.

    On the negative side the quality of the DVD transfer I watched was terrible 😞
