Hi,   Watched the new Ghostbusters. It sucked An insult to the original.   Sanuk!

Hatari! (1962) - made when I was 3, this is a surprisingly accessible John Wayne film, a RomCom before the term was invented.   IMDB - A group of men trap wild animals in Africa and sell them to zoo

Yes, made me laugh, worth a watch   Robin Williams captures his part perfectly.

The Father [2020]

An elderly man refuses help from his daughter as he ages and tries to make sense of his changing circumstances. He begins to doubt his loved ones and his own mind. Based on the 2012 play, this movie version has Hopkins at his very best in a masterful display of the devastation of dementia.

The United States vs Billie Holiday [2021]

Based on the War On Drugs book "Chasing the Scream" this biography follows Holiday during her career as she is targeted by the Federal Department of Narcotics with an undercover sting operation led by Federal Agent Jimmy Fletcher, with whom she had a tumultuous affair during 1940's America. Other than a top lead performance and some good tunes, the rest of the screenplay is uninspiring.

Minari [2020]

Named after the vegetable, a unique kind of film dramatizing a Korean families assimilation in rural 1980s Arkansas with their trials and tribulations starting a farm. Well-made with mixed English and Korean dialogue, intimate character development in a slow going drama that is enjoyable to watch albeit nothing outstanding.

The Dry (2020)

A great Stryne story, twists and turns.

Eric Bana was made for the lead role, the other actors are typically and beautifully Stryne.

This makes me appreciate the Outback a lot more, having only ever visited the Cities.

I'd rate this as one of the best movies I've seen this year.

Go out of your way, to see this one.

It Snows In Benidorm [2020]

A Manchester banker is forced into an early retirement, decides to visit his brother in Benidorm, only to discover that he's disappeared. A slow quirky melancholic suspense drama of hedonistic pensioners, kind of works with another good lead by Spall who befriends a soulless show girl who pulls pearls out of her vagina for a living.

Black Bear [2020]

A filmmaker at a creative impasse seeks solace from her tumultuous past at a rural retreat, only to find that the woods summon her inner demons. Somewhat intriguing art house thespians doing what they do best, comes over as self-indulgent and hard to watch.

His House [2020]

A refugee couple makes a harrowing escape from war-torn South Sudan, but then they struggle to adjust to their new life in an English town that has an evil lurking. Impressive supernatural thriller from a first time director offers a visually surreal trip into the horrors of the refugee crisis.

The Slaughterhouse Killer (2020)

Not quite and yet exactly, what it says on the tin.

A Stryne movie, quirks, explicit and gore, presented for your viewing pleasure.

The Oscar winner Nomadland, not recommended, depressing bleak road movie about a middle aged woman who loses her job and home and takes off in a RV. How does rubbish like this win best pic? she's not even black!
