Riders Of Justice [2020]

A soldier takes compassionate leave home to see his teenage daughter, after his wife dies in a train accident. It seems like an accident until a mathematics geek, who was also on the train, and his two colleagues show up. Excellent Danish revenge thriller with a wickedly funny dark side, action packed, full of subtle drama and surprises. Worth seeing.

Slalom [2020]

Under the guidance of a strict ex-champion, a promising 15 year old girl trains as a professional skiing star. Excellent French drama traverses the Alpine slopes at exhilarating speeds whilst swerving into the slippery slope of when close physical training becomes sexual abuse.

Candyman (1992)

I clicked on a link in Kodi, entitled Candyman (2021) and got the 1992 version.

Good, very good, after a little slowness at the beginning.

Worth a look, Virginia Madsen is great.

The Protege (2021)

Maggie Q, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton 

Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody, Anna is the world's most skilled contract killer.

However, when Moody is brutally killed, she vows revenge for the man who taught her everything she knows.

Lotsa action and bang bang, some interesting stuff and Maggie Q,      Woof!

Herself [2020]

A young mother escapes her abusive husband and fights back against a broken housing system. She sets out to build her own home and in the process rebuilds her life and re-discovers herself. A jarring mix of unbelievable kindness and nasty cruelty kind of works for this mostly upbeat Irish drama.

Cry Macho [2021]

A one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder takes a job to bring a man's young son home and away from his alcoholic mom across the border in Mexico. On their journey, the horseman finds redemption teaching the boy what it means to be good. Overly slow modern day cowboy drama, would barely pass muster but for it coming from 92 year old Clint. Not bad, but not that good either.

Not a movie but 3 series' TV show

Britannia

In vein of and as good as, Vikings, and better IMHO, than Game of Tropes.

1st series: very good, so much so, that I kept straight on and watched the 2nd immediately.

2nd series: still good with plot developing quite nicely.

3rd series: mmm... like a lot of franchises that suffer from multiple directors, producers and owners, I reckon this last, was not possessed of the vigour of the first two. Could be place holder for a possible future resurrection...

However - as a whole - Bloody good, some wry humour, a bit of gore and the sex so toned down that it's patently British, well it's in the name...

Of note ::

David Morrissey as Aulus, a real workhorse, very good performances.

Eleanor Worthington-Cox as Cait, stunning performances from, a just now turned, 20 yr old.

But this guy is a diamond, just discovered in the rough, very good acting this fella, Nikolaj Lie Kaas as Divis. Standout!

If it were not for the 3rd series, it'd be 5 from 5, but well worth a look at 4 stars.

Clint produced and directed this movie...and did a good job of acting in the movie....he is presently 91 years young!!!

Keep going Clint!!!

Help [2021 TV movie]

A young woman seems to have found her calling working in a Liverpool care home where she has a special talent for connecting with the residents. Then, in March 2020, the Coronavirus pandemic hits. A downer drama as can be expected about care home failings at the time with two very strong lead performances to make it worthwhile.
