Seven Psychopaths - enjoyable crime black comedy from Martin 'In Bruges' McDonagh with Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken.

Wonder Woman - overlong at 2 hours 20 and also lighter on action than I would've liked. That said, it is at least much less gloomy than recent takes on DC's other 2 'big hitters' Superman and Batman and in the title role Gal Gadot both kicks ass and looks great doing it.

Good to know it's less gloomy than the other two. Hopefully cinema continues to go down that path in the blockbuster arena.

Robot And Frank - sweet sci-fi comedy drama in which an elderly jewel thief with the beginnings of dementia is given a robot home-help, and soon figures out that the robot could be of use in his heists. With Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon and James Marsters.

The Mummy - this has had mixed reviews to say the least, but I had fun - an action-adventure-horror that fairly rattles along and sets up Universal's 'Dark Universe' well enough.

Their Finest (Lone Scherfig)

Good film! Watched my dear Gemma give a solid performance in this film. The dialogue is sharp but the story broadens toward the end to encompass a love story that seemed a little too Hollywood than what the film could have been - but this is perhaps a by product of what the story proper centred on. Great chemistry between the two leads in Arterton and Claflin. McCrory was great and as always, Bill Nighy does his thing and it's hoot. But the real standout was Rachel Stirling. She is brilliant as a lesbian man-hater with her mother's voice. It comes as a real shame that she didn't supersede Samantha Bond as Moneypenny. Unfortunately she isn't young enough to start a reign as the character, but she would have been a welcome addition beginning with the first Bond film after Brosnan. But I digress. I enjoyed the film, but with a polish at the end, it might have been tighter.

Wonder Woman.

Put on my cosplay outfit back home, got hogtied with a lasso and I'll be walking funny for a week and have bruises on my elbows.

I did buy the whole Rebirth series (the latest DC Wonder Woman comics) and #1 is autographed drool

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992)

Watched it last night after concluding a rewatch of the series over the past few weeks. I have to say this movie improves with each viewing and might be edging closer to being my favorite film by David Lynch. The first half plays out much like other of Lynch's earlier works a quirky murder mystery among rural oddballs and the second half is a fairly intense character study of a doomed high-schooler and her tormentor with excellent performances by Sheryl Lee and Ray Wise. David Lynch himself and Kiefer Sutherland have sterling roles in the first half as well especially the latter as a quirky and somewhat socially awkward FBI agent and of course the David Bowie scene is still one of the best in Lynch's filmography summing up his style in all it's weird and enigmatic glory. The deleted footage is stellar as well especially an extended version of Bowie's scene and a touching scene of the Palmer family at the dinner table. Overall it nails the right balance between quirky mystery like the original TV series and the dark, somewhat grim vibe which the new one has.


Sleuth (1972)

Recently got the Australian "Umbrella Entertainment" DVD of this as here in the U.S. the film still appears to be in some legal nightmare regarding who ultimately has the rights to it. For a two-man show it never fails to bore and is a pretty humorous thriller with Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine having loads of fun. On the DVD quality front despite proclaiming to be a "16x9" print on the back it's still non-anamorphic which I think was also the case with the old Anchor Bay U.S. DVD which was no doubt the source for this print. Still nice to finally have a Region 1 friendly option for this film outside of old pre-90's VHS tapes which I've gone through several over the years.

Survivor

went to this after the Times gave it a favourable-ish review in their "movie of the day" column (in the TV listings supplement) and the fact Brosnan was in it. I'm curious to see Brosnan in films sometimes and so it was this time. I'm not a Jolovich fan and this kind of fare passes me by but somehow it entertained throughout -the London locations, Roger Rees and yes, Brosnan made it worthwhile enough. Indeed, I'd say this wasn't too shabby a performance by Brozzers -easily the best part of the film. Found myself cheering him on at one point but as he was a terrorist hitman...no, no, that wouldn't do (though some say Golden Gun is so bad they end up cheering Scaramanga on such is Lee's performance!).

An unofficial Bond with Brozzers in the NSNA mould I would find hugely entertaining.

I caught this a few months back and sure, it's a B-grade film, but it was popcorn enough to at least entertain for the duration of the movie. It's flawed but as you say, Brosnan isn't amongst it. In fact, he's the highlight and similarly, I was rooting for him too!

Of course I'd also enjoy Brosnan in a NSNA type film. Or have one of those November Man films pop up again with a better script and director. Or the Thomas Crown sequel....

Glad to see we're of like minds. Though not Brosnan's biggest fan as Bond, can't help but think he had one more film in him. I've not seen November Man but it's a little late for Thomas Crown II (I say this, if Top Gun can come back after what, 30 years, Thomas Crown could I suppose).

Shame EON's bottled up tight. Unofficial Bond's could be what it took to jar things a little. Though I guess it's for the good.

Commando - good work Film 4, this 80s action nonsense with Arnie in his pomp made for perfect Saturday-night-with-a-few-beers entertainment.

The Man Who Haunted Himself - 70s psychological thriller starring a post-Saint pre-Bond Rog, who after recovering from a life-saving operation following a car accident finds his life dogged by incidents and meetings with people that he absolutely doesn't recall being there for ... does he have a doppelganger, or is he losing his mind?

Intriguing and winningly weird, and one to sit people who insist that Moore wasn't much of an actor down in front of ... he's very good indeed in this. I'm only sorry that it took his passing to remind me that I'd always meant to check it out.
