What film have you just watched?

Greyhound. Tom Hanks.

Hanksy puts his Maerske Alabama Captain skills to good use on a WWII Destroyer escorting a convoy to England. Lots of frenzied action on the ships bridge as they try to stop a wolfpack from sinking a boat load of ships.

It wasn't that bad to be honest and well worth a watch

I've just watched The Old Guard on Netflix, best two hours of my week. Charlize Theron leading a bunch of immortal mercenaries. The evil twin got me into the comic it is based on earlier this year, I didn't notice any deviation from the original source material and it had some pretty decent decent fight choreography.


Warning Content does require suspension of disbelief.
Terrible reviews - BUT I WANT TO WATCH IT (in the same way I like red wine with fish).

Watched that last night.

Thankfully shorter than the current fashion of 2hr plus films.

Does this reflect on how good the film was or your attention span and/or bladder situation?

Agreed, it was just around the right length without being repetitive, still, for a low budget film it was ok.
That 'good old American boy Stephen Graham' Oscar level nailed it though, =-)

Ha! I watched that tonight, too. Pure escapism.
Yes, but watchable. The most horrific bit was the story of one of the immortals Quyron or something like that, being locked in an iron box then thrown in the sea, to drown-recover-drown-recover for hundreds of years!
 
Sounds more like Casca. They were highly enjoyable books and would make for perfect movie fodder.

Currently watching "The Outpost" on Streaming.

"True" story of Red platoon- a cavalry scout outpost Keating in Afghanistan. Eastwood plays SFC Clinton Romesha MoH



Scott Eastwood
Orlando Bloom (And he dont look like a youngster anymore)
Sons of Mick Jagger, Mel Gibson and Richard Attenborough's grandson

Pretty good so far
Streaming on what?
 
Just watching the original 39 Steps on Beeb2. I have no idea why.
I believe i tis the 1935 version ... so old it has a certain charm about it .... Hitchcock of course makes his obligatory appearance ... in the background ... also an early part for John Laurie ... who looked old even in 1935 .. hope you enjoyed it .
 
For those who may be interested I see that " The Day of the Jackal " is on Sony Movies starting at 6.15 this evening
 
Battle of the Bilge just started. I know, I know, but it’s about to show the Panzerlied scene, and I love the bit later when Chaz Bronson says...
“Waaait a minute... they weren’t engineers, they were MPeeeeeees!”
 
Terrible reviews - BUT I WANT TO WATCH IT (in the same way I like red wine with fish).
Not to mention the ex-Atomic Blonde, Charlize Theron...


Yep, I would...:cool:

Passengers, recorded from the other night.
Pretty good but fairly predictable.

Just watched 1917. I know it had mixed reviews but I really enjoyed it - well not 'enjoy' as such, I feel exhausted to be honest! It's quite graphic in parts but still only hints at the true horror by all accounts of what it was actually like at the front.

It's a film I want to watch again when I've recovered enough.
 
It's on the shelf ready to go. I've seen the trailer and TBH it sucked. However, I've been reliably informed to give it a go. So... wait out!

See what you think. It's a film so entertainment first and foremost but I thought it was well done, not very 'Hollywood' which is meant as a positive thing!
