    The Batman

    ★★★★

    I do think there is something fundamentally wrong when you come out of a movie thinking that was an hour too long for its own good and not thinking about the good things you’ve just seen and there are plenty of good things on show in The Batman , it’s just a shame I had to wade through parts of a plot that were completely unnecessary. 

    Firstly I’ve got say that I thought Robert Pattinson was excellent and I also…

    Spencer

    ★★★★½

    Most people of a certain age in the UK will remember exactly what they were doing when they heard that Princess Diana had died .
    I do .
    I’ve never known a death affect a country so much as this did and I doubt it ever will again. 
    What we didn’t fully realise was the misery that Diana had gone through being a royal and Spencer takes us into that world , all be at for just a few days…

    Courage Under Fire

    For some reason I’d managed to avoid seeing Courage Under Fire over the last twenty five years . 
    I’m not a Meg Ryan fan and to be honest this just emphasises my dislike for her but at least there’s good old Denzel to prop up the film as he does in so many . 

    Denzel plays a U.S. Army officer, despondent about a deadly mistake he made, investigates a female chopper commander's worthiness for the Medal of Honor.
    What surprised…

    Time Bandits

    I really don’t like Terry Gilliam as a director. 
    The vast majority of his movies are a mess. 
    Brazil , 12 Monkeys and The Man Who Killed Don Quixote are some of the most overrated films of all time in my opinion. 
    He was by far the weakest of the Monty Python group and the only good movies he directed were the Python collaborations. 
    As for Time Bandits , I believe this film is only really watchable because of Michael…

    Belfast

    ★★★★★

    The word masterpiece is banded around too often when it comes to movies . Not by me . 
    But this IS a masterpiece and it’s film’s like Belfast that are the reason I love this medium. 

    This is Kenneth Branagh’s semi autobiographical film about a young boy and his working-class Belfast family , who experience the tumultuous late 1960s through good and bad in Northern Ireland. 

    There is so much I want to say about this film. 
    Firstly , if it…

    The Father

    ★★★★½

    Most of us have had a loved one who has or is suffering from dementia. It’s a horrible disease that’s both frustrating for the sufferer and the carer. 

    This is an absolutely brilliant portrayal of an old man who refuses all assistance from his daughter as he ages. As he tries to make sense of his changing circumstances, and how he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind .

    The way this film is made is so clever…
