Moon Knight     TV Mini Series   2022

Steven Grant discovers he's been granted the powers of an Egyptian moon god. But he soon finds out that these newfound powers can be both a blessing and a curse to his troubled life.

Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke, May Calamawy

6 Episodes, based on  "MARVEL" and don't you forget it it, comics.

The quality of the actors make this a very good series, I found that the "Super Hero" bits detracted, from the excellent bits that had actors acting.

Well worth a watch, particularly for Oscar Isaac

Ali & Ava [2021]

Ali and Ava, both lonely for different reasons, meet and sparks fly. Over a lunar month a connection begins to grow, despite the legacy of their own past relationships. Award winning and endearing UK drama set in Yorkshire with two leads showing real chemistry in a story full of detail.

The Northman 2022

In what could've been good, the actors look like they should be there, the story is weak, the execution pale, and in general, don't bother.

The Bannen Way  2010

A slick, sexy, action-packed show about Neal Bannen, a charming con-man with a police chief for a father, a mob boss for an uncle and a weakness for beautiful women, who wants to turn his life around and leave the criminal lifestyle forever.

Not as slick as they might have liked, each of the anti hero gangsters, has just a little too much style, much as I suppose the real life kind, might wish for.

Still an entertaining watch, particularly for Vanessa Marcil  a cutie of the first order.

Aftermath 2012

Polish, English subtitles.

An interesting look at a Polish village, with history, from WWII, the brothers play well off each other and the end is worth waiting for.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde 2008

Modern retelling, different perspective, rainy day movie.

Operation Mincemeat 2021

During WWII, two intelligence officers use a corpse and false papers to outwit German troops.

Well told and acted, engrossing, even a bit part for the character of Fleming (007 author)

Ricky Gervais: SuperNature [2022]

TV Special of the comedian with his signature black humor doing stand up on stage at the London Palladium. Takes on the rules of comedy with amusing self-mockery of everyone easily offended. Comedy doesn't always travel, and this, whilst a good laugh, along the lines of his Golden Globes hosting but more vulgar, comes over as a little lazy and juvenile. Worth seeing when the mood suits.

The Air I Breathe 2007

A drama based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love. A businessman bets his life on a horse race; a gangster sees the future; a pop star falls prey to a crime boss; a doctor must save the love of his life.

Good actors, intriguing story, 

Brendan Fraser, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Andy Garcia, Kevin Bacon, Forest Whitaker

Worth a watch
