Film: Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool

Film: Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool

Once I get past the fact that the film star who first broke through in the 1950s has had an affair with someone her son’s age in the 1980s, it is good to see a film based in Britain. The films serves as a big stage for Annette Bening who is almost in every scene […]

Movie – Murder on the Orient Express

 Everyone has a past I’m sure I watched films and TV series on this as a kid but I can’t recall anything to make a direct comparison with this humorous 2017 take. With the all-star-cast that director and star Kenneth Brannah brings, we know we are in for a treat. The scene is set in […]

Movie:The Death of Stalin

Movie:The Death of Stalin

Loosely based on a true story Once I get past the gruesomeness of the constant executions, I do find the humour. The film is littered with one liners delivered with precision by a well-rounded cast. One could argue, do we see the funny side of a dictator executing anyone who gets in his way, or […]

Movie: Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle

Movie: Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle

So, thank goodness for Mark Strong. And John Denver. The first Kingsman movie was a little bit different and completely tongue in cheek and so just about got away with some of the terrible story lines. This one is just vile. Strong is essential to the film but whereas excellent before, Colin Firth returns, despite […]

Film – Victoria & Abdul

Film – Victoria & Abdul

  The ignorance of the English is portrayed from the very start of this film. Two Indian men are picked to make a commemorative presentation to Queen Victoria in England. From the opening scene, I relish settling down to see a film about India before partition when everyone was Indian, rather than Muslim, Sikh or […]

Film – American Made

Film – American Made

  If you want to watch the same scene happening over and over again, this is the film to watch. The story on which it’s based is pretty interesting. Guy gets recruited by the CIA and gets paid to fly a plane over countries the government wants to keep an eye on and discreetly take […]

Film – An Inconvenient Sequel

Film – An Inconvenient Sequel

Everyone has their version of the meaning of life. My belief is that we are placed on this earth to enjoy it and then leave the world a better place than we found it. The human race is failing in that. How people can look at the facts and then fail to see how we […]

Film – Dunkirk

Film – Dunkirk

On another day, I may not have seen this film. Had that been the case I would have missed out on one the most evocative and essential films of recent times. Following on from The Viceroys House which made me want to learn more about partition in India, this is another historical drama. But the […]
