    The Peanut Butter Falcon

    ★★★★

    A nice independent film, that brings back memories of watching the Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn tv series, that used to air in the summer holidays. This heartwarming adventure kicks off when Zac, a young man with Down Syndrome, escapes from the retirement home he has been housed in for 2 years. Soon into his journey he meets Shia LeBeouf’s character Tyler, a fisherman trying to break free of his own problems. The pair soon bond and head off down…

    Gringo

    ★★★½

    Another one of those all star films, with a great cast, that you’ve never heard of until it hits Netflix.

Lister, Rimmer, Cat and Kryten happen upon three cat clerics and…

    The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story

    ★★★★½

    A great documentary chronicling Adam Lambert’s rise, from an unknown auditioning on American Idol, to his current position, wowing audiences as Queen’s new frontman. I have to be honest and confess to shedding a few tears throughout this. Freddie Mercury is a hard act to follow, but the fact that Adam has made it his own, injecting it with passion and flamboyance, as well as having that amazing voice is simply astonishing. I also love how Roger and Brian, have…
