Walter Matthau.jpg

On a dark, wet, windy, rain soaked afternoon I sought out comfort TV to pass the time before dinner. I pay for access to Studio Universal Classics which allows me to watch old films. There wasn’t a thought in my head as to what would work but I knew an actor who would. I searched for Walter Matthau.

Fantasia.jpg

You make a revolutionary film that had never been tried before in the hope of reviving his fortunes. Such was the thinking behind the film Fantasia. Walt Disney set about making his third full length feature film. It was a huge gamble to use classical music and Mickey Mouse as the mainstays of a film that last for two hours and eight minutes.

Silence.jpg

Ever since it was premiered by Martin Scorsese at the Vatican at the end of 2016 I have longed to see the film Silence. Scorsese films always push the viewers boundaries and ask big big questions. I won’t say I am a fan of Scorsese because I am not by any means but I appreciate and respect his dedication as a film maker.

Sully.jpg

Tom Hanks is his usual superb self in this film. I thought it was a very short film when I watched only to discover that more than ninety minutes had passed in what felt like thirty or less, surely a sign of an excellently well told and engrossing film.

The stunningly detailed ship hits a giant asteroid 30 years into its journey and one pod malfunctions and our hero awakes. He is alone apart from an android bartender on the ship. Like a cruise liner there are lots of things to do and robot attendants look after his every need. Apart it seems from a barber!

Despite The Falling Snow.jpg

It is billed as a Cold War Romance but somehow it fails on many levels to convincingly tell the story. Rebecca Ferguson is excellent as the dissident Russian, spying for America, who falls in love with her mark, Sam Reid/Charles Dance.

Childhood Of A Leader.jpg

The nipple obsession is disturbing. The whole film is disturbing. Nothing about the film will leave you feeling good. It is quietly, horrifically, terrifying. So why watch you might ask? Well let’s look at the awards and comments. The Guardian gave it 5/5. It won five awards and nominated for a further 12. So, it can't be a bad film, and it isn't.

The DVD cover describes The Imitation Game: “During the darkest days of World War 2, the British Government enlist the help of mathematician Alan Turing to crack Enigma, the unbreakable German encryption device [...] before their operation is infiltrated and more lives are lost.” It’s not often that I take note of the description on the back of the DVD case, but I must admit this is a truly accurate description that warrants that you watch The Imitation Game
