The Report [2019]
Fascinating portrayal of the Senate's investigation and report into the CIA's dark period of enhanced torture methods of interrogation and their ultimate failure following 9/11.

Woman At War [2018]
A eccentric and original Icelandic film with English subtitles about an woman eco-warrior with a twin sister and plans to adopt. Wonderfully scenic with a clever Nordic sense of humor live band soundtrack.

Ad Astra [2019]
Good lead performance in an otherwise slow burning space saga of an astronaut who flies to Neptune following strange goings on with his long lost father who is stranded on a space station there.

I Lost My Hand [2019]
Highly original animated film of broken hearts and severed body parts well worth watching. 

Got the title wrong sorry:

I Lost My Body [2019]

Triple Border - Ben Affleck and co rob a drug baron, seems a fool-proof premise enough for a movie, looks good on location, but absolutely crap overall.  Supposedly crack military special forces team turns out to be clumsy, dumb and incompetent novices.

The Irishman - Better to go back and watch Goodfellas again, or the G'fathers, just another mafia story (of dubious origins) told well enough be messed up by CGI to make de Niro, Pesci and others look thirty or so years younger in the face, while supported by 70-year-old bodies...  Getting good reviews from everyone but me though, so - fuggedaboutit!

Big Game (2014)

"When Air Force One is shot down by terrorists leaving the President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson) stranded in the wilderness, there is only one person around who can save him - a 13-year old boy called Oskari. In the forest on a hunting mission to prove his maturity to his kinsfolk, Oskari had been planning to track down a deer, but instead discovers the most powerful man on the planet in an escape pod. With the terrorists closing in to capture their own "Big Game" prize, the unlikely duo must team up to escape their hunters. As anxious Pentagon officials observe the action via satellite feed, it is up to the President and his new side-kick to prove themselves and survive the most extraordinary 24 hours of their lives."

Absolute GARBAGE, one of the worst films I have ever seen!

Peanut Butter Falcon [2019]
Lightweight feel good buddy road movie of a Down syndrome wrestling fan on the run from his care home who meets up with an unlikely partner in the southern states. Worth seeing at those times when feelgood movies are needed.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood [2019]
Feelgood family flick, for most outside the US who may have never known Fred Rogers, this is still worth a look based on a true story around the TV personality, acted with subtlety meeting a cynical writer. Out on DVD screener mode now.
