What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

Recommended Posts

Trauma Center

Bruce Willis is a cop who is investigating the murder of his partner and protecting the one witness who was injured. Unfortunately this is not Bruce's finest hour and I would not bother. 1 star out of 5.

Guilt [2019 TV series] 
4 part mini series Scottish thriller concerning two brothers trying to conceal a hit and run road traffic accident. A bit slow in parts but with enough black humour to keep our interest.

Fighting With My Family [2019]
Entertaining albeit clichéd comedy biopic of WWE wrestler Paige does what is expected of it. More of interest is how the lead carries off a comedic role for a change.

The Aeronauts [2019]
Very loosely based on the story of a 19th century pioneering ballooning meteorologist, the movie is too formulaic to the point of being tedious albeit entertaining for the whole family.

Joker [2019]
Superbly led dark psychological thriller based on the DC comic character follows the decent of a lonely comic clown into bloody madness. One of the best films this year with good soundtrack and character acting.

Death on the Tyne (2018)  
1176178072_ScreenShot2019-12-23at8_38_50AM.png.b2b8cd26cc1ebdd4a403b8807fb753c6.png   

a lovely little British piss-take of Agatha Christie.   4 from 5 stars

 

The Irishman (2019)
1381518694_ScreenShot2019-12-23at8_41_19AM.png.2e0841501b91edbce4e3770e713bef93.png 

extremely good movie, interesting use of AI de-aging technology, that said, a very good movie with great performances by all involved. Those of us who have some knowledge of Jimmy Hoffa, may find it interesting.  6 from 5 stars

 

Togo (2019)
268943211_ScreenShot2019-12-23at8_45_04AM.png.fc0bb2446669c8c67f8975327de5c57e.png

despite the photoshopping of Willem Dafoe's craggy face on the poster art and this being a Disney movie, this is a stunning good'un. A true story, about a dog, and heroism by man and dog.  5 from 5 stars.

Mrs Lowry & Son [2019]
Two talented actors inspire an otherwise lethargic story of the artist and his controlling mother whom he lived with in Lancashire all of her life.

The Irishman [2019]
Based on friend of Jimmy Hoffa, Frank Sheeran's biography, the true story of how an Irish war vet truck driver becomes involved in the truckers union and mobster scene. At 3 1/2 hours one needs to prepare to watch this in a single sitting for one of the best movie experiences of this genre ever made.

Really good, though in the end, I felt is was more about the mother, than the son, and her "Aspirations".
