    Really enjoyed The Hunt.
    I've seen people arguing online about whether it is pro or anti Trump but it blatantly takes the piss out of both sides of the political spectrum and society in general.

    Sorry we Missed You.... absolutely guy wrench of a movie, Ken Loach taking a very bleak look at zero hours Britain.

    Great stuff from Ken Loach again.

    Yeah it's very good, actually very hard to watch, the bloody realism of it all really gets at you.

    I would recommend Kes to yourself and anyone who hasn't seen it.
    One of Loach's earliest movies but still his best.

    Watched that "Greyhound" yesterday.
    Based on a true war story of the escort captain trying to get his supply shipping across the Atlantic while (unsuccessfully) dodging the German U boat wolf packs.
    Tom Hanks stars and wrote the screenplay.
    Not Saving Private Ryan, but attention to detail is remarkable in itself.

    Solid 6/10 (providing you enjoy war movies)

    Also watched it yesterday.
    Would agree with 6/10.
    An easy watch at 90mins but I felt an extra 30 mins of character/plot development would have benefited the movie.
    It's no Das Boot.

    Haven't seen it yet, but I hear that Hamilton is very good.

    Disappointed with the ratings for Greyhound, I was hoping to hear better reviews. I'll still give it a go though, as I love war films.

    It's a couple of years old but I watched Hereditary last night.
    Hands down one of the best horror films I've seen.
    Incredible debut from the director.

    I thought The Old Guard would be shite but it was enjoyable nonsense.

    It was great up to a point but without any spoilers I just thought it became ridiculous towards the end. There was one scene towards the very end that I just started bursting out laughing at it was so ridiculous. Thought it was brilliant up to the finale.

    Probably was 2019, ‘Judy‘ with Renee Zellwegger is very good. Was looking up about Judy Garland after it as didn’t know much about her. Crazy life

    Probably 2019 also, not sure but Le Mans 66 is a very good watch. Both Bale and Damon do a decent job. Zero knowledge of motor sport and its history but no need to here to appreciate the film.

    The Trial of the Chicago 7 is very good.
    A strong cast with Mark Rylance stealing the show as usual.

    Watched the new Borate movie this morning. Sacha Baren Cohen is a crazy bastard:) The actress playing his daughter is excellent. He's trying,but Rudy Guiliani hasn't got a hope of convincing anybody his part in it was all innocent. It's obvious what he was at,the dirty old fuck.

    This is something I have been looking forward to for a while. I watched it last night and although it won’t be every ones taste, I found it gas and we need more of this in our lives during these times

    As you said his daughter is excellent. The part where is is in with the ladies in the conference is bloody gas.
