I watched A Clockwork Orange on the weekend for the first time.
I can understand why it was controversial at the time..,

Downsizing. Atrocious. Thought it was going to be a comedy, then a dark comedy, then no idea what, then it was about finding yourself. I like Matt Damon, I wanted to like the movie. But no.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

NZ film with Sam Neill. Very good - dry Kiwi humour, action scenes, great storyline & acting. Do yourselves a favour and watch it.

Wilderpeople is great for.! So is The Dressmaker. Classic Aussie bent humour.

Sam Neil and Brian Brown in Sweet Country. Aussie film, not a comedy though. Great story, fantastic cinematography. Also check out these guys in Dirty Deeds ( YouamI cameo)!

I just realised something about The Sound Of Music. A 47yo Baron Von Trapp married a 22yo Maria.... that's a 25yr age difference. She was only 6yrs older than their eldest child. Ooh la la!

Gold - Matthew McConaughey. Excellent film, the rise and fall film about the gold mining industry.

Went with the family to see "A Wrinkle In Time"...
Kids liked it... some interesting ideas... but overall, not very well done, IMO....

Script was weak, acting was weaker...

Watched Murder on the Orient Express. It's was average 6/10, not bad but not amazing. If you like Agatha Christie the BBC show is much better.

Went n saw A QUIET PLACE last night.

VERY good suspense, thriller, scifi type. 6ppl cast. Low budget, but this all adds to it imo.

Now I'll await the sequels made with YOOOJ budgets and probably not nearly as good.

Top acting on the part of the moustache. The rest of it didn’t live up to that.

Best comment I read on A Quiet Place was that the nail was scarier than the monster. Think I agree - that's not a criticism - I really liked the movie.
One of those films you enjoy at the time but doesn't stand up to thinking it through afterwards

I know there were some... not so realistic... parts. But wasthe most suspenseful movie I'd seen in a while. Most horror/"scary" movies just don't do it for me, but this had me clenching my hands a fair bit.

saw Darkest Hour, fantastic acting from Gary Oldman and Ben Mendelsohn as King George VI. As a war buff I found it fascinating.
