Yes,  I liked Suchet too :)  Ustinov did a good turn though, unlike that Branagh

Lynn + Lucy [2019]
A superb British drama out digitally in July 2020 with two very strong lead performers playing lifetime friends whose friendship is tested when one has a tragedy in her young family and becomes the scourge of the town. Real down to earth stuff that should be a contender for years best.

Greyhound (2020)

Very good, Tom Hanks, leads the defence of a convoy crossing the Atlantic in WWII.

Greyhound [2020]
This is a worthy 90 minutes of entertaining second world war thrills on the Atlantic high seas when US war ships escort merchant fleets through  German U-boat blockades. The usual fine performances we generally expect of the leads although the rest of the cast are reduced to cliches, the CGI imagery is sufficiently well done and perfected to make the attacks look real.

The Personal History of David Copperfield (2019)

A modern take on Charles Dickens's classic tale of a young orphan who is able to triumph over many obstacles. IMDB

Perhaps a little "Through the looking glass", but still an enjoyable take on the classic.

Dev Patel, Hugh Laurie, Tilda Swinton, Paul Whitehouse, a deliciously creepy Ben Whishaw as Uriah Heep, and others and Peter Capaldi, whom one was expecting, , would pop into a Tardis at any point during the movie.

Not a movie a TV series, 1 hr episodes, I've got to Episode 4 so far.

Perry Mason (2020)

Not like the old black and white tv series at all,  graphic nudity corpses and violence.

And a bloody good plot and pacing, I'm looking forward to Ep 5 and on.

Tread (2020)

Documentary - firstly, a stale tale, about a man up against the entrenched town elite,  but skip to about halfway and there's a bloody ginormous big bulldozer! quite amazing!

Pushed to his breaking point, a master welder in a small town at the foot of the Rocky Mountains quietly fortifies a bulldozer with 30 tons of concrete and steel and seeks to destroy those he believes have wronged him. IMDB

4.5 from 5 stars
