  • Pink Floyd: The Wall

    Pink Floyd: The Wall

    ★★★★½

    I waited a long time to watch this with the right person. I knew I was going to love it - I've been a massive fan of Pink Floyd for ages - but I wanted to share it with someone who would really get it.

    When I mentioned to my wife that I hadn't seen it yet (despite having owned the DVD since long before I met her), she immediately turned off the lights and urged me to put in…

  • Highlander

    Highlander

    ★★★★

    The immortal Connor MacLeod (Luke Skywalker) begins life as a normal chap in 16th century Scotland, but is cast out of his village under suspicion of devilry when he miraculously recovers from an obviously fatal battle wound.

    Sean Connery stars as Ramiraz (Ben Kenobe), and trains the young highlander (Jedi) in the art of swordplay and use of The Quickening (The Force).

    A tall warrior in black with a breathing problem (caused by an injury sustained in battle with Ramiraz),…

  • Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    ★★★★

    Loads of fun from start to finish. We all thoroughly loved watching this. The Rock, Karen Gillan and Jack Black are all perfect and even Kevin Hart is fun and not too annoying. Some of the martial arts scenes featuring Karen Gillan are so good they got spontaneous applause in our house. 

    Brilliant. Loved it.

  • We Can Be Heroes

    We Can Be Heroes

    ★★

    This isn’t a very good film. My 6 year old enjoyed it very much though, and he’s the target audience. 

    The acting is wooden, the direction shambolic and the writing terrible. The symbolism was nearly obvious enough for the kids to notice it.

    Smart, well-meaning kids; an existential threat; bumbling adults and an incompetent, lazy, out-of-touch president. If Greta Thunberg had played Climate Girl™ it wouldn’t have been less subtle. But perhaps that’s what we need at this stage?

    Very colorful and if you don’t mind having your intelligence insulted, this is a fun family film that’s only a little too scary for the under-fives.

  • The Man Who Fell to Earth

    The Man Who Fell to Earth

    A strange film about an alien, disguised as a youthful and thin David Bowie, who comes to Earth for a drink of water (wtf?). He becomes a wealthy tycoon by selling silver rings for $20 (wtf?). He longs to get home to his family, but a dream sequence seems to indicate that they've most likely died of dehydration. Nevertheless, he bootstraps a private space program so he can return to his home planet now that he's had his glass of…
