Yesterday [2019]
Out on torrent now, what was an exciting concept laced with some of the best pop tunes ever, falls flat and disappoints in the end with some cliched run of the mill Rom Com.

Kursk

The film follows the 2000 K-141 Kursk submarine disaster and the governmental negligence that followed. As the sailors fight for survival, their families desperately battle political obstacles and impossible odds to save them.

Stars:Matthias Schoenaerts, Léa Seydoux, Peter Simonischek

Excellent doco drama as you felt you were with the crew and despised the lies and incompetence of the Russian government and military.

The End Of The F***ing World [2019 TV series]
Very enjoyable 8 part black comedy series of a young couple on the run. Each episode only 20 minutes and to the point. Worth watching.

Get Carter 1971

Another Michael Caine movie. Very good. Some observations. The nudity reveals that the girlies didn't know about preternatural youth, silicone implants and muscle tone, back then.

And if you've seen any of Guy Ritchie's films, like "lock stock and two smoking barrels",  you'll understand that this movie, is English, gritty, and makes Guy Ritchie's efforts, look like, amateur hour.

Unbelievable [2019 TV series]
Eight part US police drama based on the true story of a serial rapist and the effects it has on some of his victims, particularly one who was shamed into denying the crime at first. Worth watching, but comes with the usual US TV series flavoring.

Between Two Ferns: The Movie [2019]
Hit and miss comedy based on the funny web series that only works for die hard fans. Weak story line with occasionally funny gags and some big names dropping by, the best part is the end of movie bloopers which is always a worry.

First episode was excellent! I will be looking forward to E02...
