HABA87

The extra part of Bohemian Rhapsody which is just the live aid set. 20 odd minutes. A great watch without getting bogged down in the inaccurate cliches of the film.

Astounding how much Brian May is Brian May.

Quality, 8/10

Vice.

What a snooze. No amount of quirky flashes of fishing or explosions is going to change that.
Thinking about turning it off. :neutral:
Finished Vice. Meh. 3/10

A Private War. 6/10 and a far superior biopic. Rosamund Pike is great, Jamie Dornan should be the next Bond. A very capable actor IMO.
Tom Hollander is in everything at the moment!
 

I Stand Alone

Midfield
Bad News Bear. Kids film from 1976 starring Walter Matthau as a washed up, misanthropic pisshead trying to whip a junior baseball team into shape.
Absolutely brilliant and one of the least PC films I can ever recall viewing. 9/10.

Can You Ever Forgive Me? - 7/10 - Enjoyed it, good acting all round and Richard E Grant plays a great drunk!
The Land of Steady Habits - TBC - Started watching this last night on Netflix, quite a wry look at the life of a divorcee looking to move on. Fell asleep though so need to watch the last half an hour!

Similar - watched The Taking of Pelham 123 - the 1974 version with the glorious Walter Matthau and his many expressions. Forget the remake, I love this gritty non pc film. Of Robert Shaw, Matthau comments 'The guy who's talking has got a heavy English accent. He could be a fruitcake.' :)

Escape Plan

Stallone, Swarzenegger, Fifty Cent and Vinnie Jones. :lol:

Hackneyed and hammy, I quite enjoyed it, although it started promisingly and tailed off toward the end.

6/10 will watch the sequel
