What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

Recommended Posts

Rocketman [2019] 
One of the better musical biopics around of late that works well even for those less keen on the pop music. Melodramatic but it is Elton John after all.

Scarborough [2018]
Two stories of couples in a teacher student relationship have a long weekend in Scarborough in a play adapted for the big screen. Worth seeing.

The Farewell [2019]
One of the years best dramas captures the complex and at times humorous dynamics of family life in China for visiting American family members to see their Grand Mother who has little time left to live. Not a downer but a very good watch. Available on torrent now with subtitles for the Chinese spoken bits!

The Capture [2019 TV series]
Interesting modern day high tech UK police surveillance 6 part thriller with worrying themes of "deep fake" news and CTTV camera trickery impositions by the highest levels in governments. Worth seeing this series 1 which ends on that inevitable scenario meaning another series is in the planning.

The Great Hack [2019]
Decent Netflix documentary about Cambridge Analytica, its key players and whistle blowers showing how social media has now been weaponised to help autocracies gain power.

American Woman [2018]
Odd title with lead played by a Brit rather well, this is a sad drama set in in blue collar Pennsylvania where a young feisty grandmother is left to bring up her grandson when her daughter goes missing. A few failed relationships along the way, eventually her missing daughter is explained.

Peterloo [2018]
An interesting historical British drama that comes across as too theatrical, tells of the early 19th century meeting in St Peter's Field, Manchester for parliamentary reform that forces bloodshed by the decadent ruling class.

For Veterans day in the US  "Taking Chance" is a movie about a Marine officer that escorts a fallen soldier home.  Kevin Bacon, who never impressed me, is excellent in this.  Have some tissues nearby.
