Borg McEnroe [2017]

 

Compelling good but not great sports drama of the build up and highlights to the 1980 tennis Wimbledon championship. Worth watching as its not covered in usual Hollywood style melodrama.

Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri [2017]

One of the years more memorable films is a well acted dark comedy drama of a woman's plight to get justice for her dead daughter through billboard advertising. The Dvd screener out now is very watchable with no watermarks.

 

Yes, a very good movie, deserving of it's multitude of awards. Mind you, it's not the greatest movie of all time, but certainly better than most of it's competition. Well worth a watch.

Vikings TV series #5. Still a good series and well worth a watch.

 

The last couple of episodes feature battles wherein the production interior designers have been let loose and all the combatants of each side have matching coloured flags and clothing, even villagers in the background have matching coloured accents. Faaark!

 

There's a detante meeting in the middle of the battle field and each side's protagonists get to sit in beautiful high backed chairs fashioned from driftwood, hardly Viking protocol, carting around a matching set of high backed chairs.

Altered Carbon, TV series, I've seen the first two episodes, almost 'BladeRunner the TV series', certainly the production gives a lot of nods to BladeRunner, but the story is quite different. It has been criticised as being a bit strongly aimed, at the young male audience, I for one am grateful for the Nudity.

 

Well worth a watch.

Small Town Crime

 

*** 1/2

 

An alcoholic ex-cop (Hawkes) finds the body of a young woman and, through an act of self-redemption, becomes hell-bent on finding the killer but unwittingly puts his family in danger and gets caught up with several dark characters along the way.

 

Not a great watch, but a good watch.
