Irresistible [2020]
A Jon Stewart political satire that has a couple of wealthy diametrically opposed campaign fund managers from the big city try and get a local up country mayor elected in one of the swing states that money politics tends to run rough shod over. This movie got some stick in the reviews from American audiences as condescending but it also comes across as an amusing look at the state of the nation albeit could have done with a better script.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga [2020]
This Will Farrell movie that comes out during a year there is no Eurovision Song Contest is an enjoyable feel good summer comedy, a little long, uneven and cheesy like the contest, still manages to poke some fun at the show that helped create this.

The Crown [2016 TV series 1-3]
You don't have to be a fan of the UK Royals or stuffy soap operas to enjoy this Netflix series which covers the reign of Elizabeth 2. More of interest are the historical events it portrays throughout her history some of which may be new to us. Apparently there will be 3 more series to come.

Gods Own Country [2017]
Brings to mind Brokeback Mountain, this time set in Yorkshire in the muddy farm environment of a family who's young farmers son struggles with his aging parents, binge drinking and gay sexual encounters until he finally settles when a temporary Romanian farm help turns up. A fine movie with a poignant story and some graphic imagery.

Mr.Jones [2019]
Compelling historical thriller with a top cast based on the true story of a former Welsh foreign affairs adviser turned freelance journalist Gareth Jones who traveled to the USSR during Hitlers rise in power before the second World War to uncover Stalin's propaganda machine. Brutal scenes from Ukraine make this a must see story which was to become the inspiration of Orwell's Animal Farm.

The ABC Murders  TV Mini-Series (2018)

3 x 1 hour parts

Good, an Agatha Christie tale, with John Malkovich as Poirot, not an actor I'd first think of,  for Poirot, but Malkovich is very good in this.

4.5 from 5 stars
