    Just watched Short term 12 after reading your post and yeah, it was fantastic. Sweet without being overly sentimental. Just well written and acted all round.
    Cheers.
    Mr bloody Robot was in it as well.

    I never did get round to finishing series 3 of Mr Robot. felt very much done after the first and the second dragged like fuck.

    I felt the same but I did eventually get back to it and it really does deliver in the end. Right up there in my all time favourite shows by the time it finishes. There's one particular episode in the last season thats one of the best episodes of anything I've ever seen.

    Enola Holmes

    The brothers Holmes apparently had a sister and she was quite something.

    It starts off very well, light, witty, very pretty. Then around the 3/4 mark it takes a sharp turn for the worse, just as if someone very stupid if influential decided they had to step in and make the script a lot better. They were so successful that I've decided to forego watching the rest for now. I undoubtedly will persevere to the end at some point in the future, but I'm expecting standard Hollywood crap.

    6/10, will probably be less once I see the end.

    Edit: against my better judgment, I have watched until the end. How wrong I was. It does indeed get much worse, but then it gets much better. I haven't forgotten how annoyed it made me for some minutes there, but I'm now rating it higher than I have before.

    7/10

    Wounds
    A pretty good horror film on Netflix.
    A bartender finds a phone in th aftermath of a barfight and takes it home with him and start to receive weird messages on it when he tries to contact the owner.
    It has a really effective doom laden atmosphere as his life starts to disintegrate.
    8/10

    Huh, I always thought this sounded interesting but the IMDB and Letterboxd scores suggest it's basically unwatchably terrible. Maybe I'll give it a chance sometime.

    Yeah, I know the reviews weren't very good but I loved the directors previous film so thought I'd give it a go. I honestly don't know why it received the reception it did. Obviously, opinions will vary as it's quite vague in what's going but for me, in horror, atmosphere is everything and it gets that right.

    Stake Land

    One of the better modern vampire films, even though it shits itself a bit towards the end. The Road mixed with TLoU vampire version.

    Might give the 2nd one a try but not holding out too much hope.

    7/10

    Why are there so few good vampire films?

    @Rum_Monkey
    What? There's loads of good vampire movies!
    Of the top of my head
    30 days of night, Near dark, fright night, blade 1 and 2, let the right one in, The addiction, vamp, thirst..I mean..I'm sure I could come up with fifty if I really think.
    Of course, you might think those films are rubbish...

    I gave Stakeland a chance because it seemed like it might be a lo-fi vamp flick in the style of Near Dark.

    It's not, it's wank. Really wank.

    I half watched Ebola Holmes (auto-correct but I like it so leaving it in) and it seemed pretty harmless. Although I will admit to finding the Fleabag-esque fourth wall-breaking narrative device a bit grating now - it takes me out of the film. All the knowing glances were a bit smug and overdone even in Fleabag.

    Stake land was pretty forgettable when I saw it a few years ago, 30 days of night also. None of them stayed with me after viewing as I literally have forgotten almost all of both of them.

    I thought 30 days of night was a pretty clever little twist on a vampire story. The sequel was bloody awful though.

    Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves - Havent watched this in at least 20 years and was really surprised by how cheap it looked. There were many, if any sets built, so they are all out in the woods or in an old castle and it looks like it was shot on video, so it looks like a made for TV movie.

    But.... its actually pretty funny. Its a bit wanky but if you watch it as a comedy, its alright. Rickman, obviously, owns the entire movie but McShane puts a shift in and Freeman is very dead pan.

    So, yeah, Robin Hood, the 90s made for TV Comedy

    5/10

    Prince of Thieves without Rickman would be worthless.

    A Lonely Place to Die (Prime)

    Think Cliffhanger in Scotland. Looks lovely, kept my interest and didn't outstay it's welcome.

    6/10

    Yeah you can really tell how they got so much mileage out of that movie when Mel Brooks made Robin Hood Men In Tights. It was ripe for parody.

    I agree it's Rickman's show all the way for sure (just like Men In Tights is totally owned by Roger Rees' Sheriff Of Rottingham).

    Yeah I wouldn't lose your head over the little girl, I'd advise pushing on with it.

    Legend

    Poor man's Goodfellas. What could have been quite an interesting film just felt a bit empty and meaningless. I didn't care about any of the characters at any point. Tom Hardy does a good job for the most part, particularly as Ronnie, but the script lets him down.

    Minus an extra point for subjecting everyone to Duffy screeching away on stage for five minutes.

    5 out of 10

    That used to be my favourite film as a kid! I remember buying the video tape from Woolworths with my own money and I'm pretty sure at one point I knew all the words off by heart. It's pretty rapey now when you watch it with adult eyes, which is weird.

    Yeah. The bit where he kicks her legs open is/was a pretty good sight gag but... rapelol? Not so much these days.

    CALL THE LOCKSMITH

    The Gentlemen- I quite enjoyed it, nothing big or clever about it really but I enjoyed Lock Stock and Snatch and this was similar enough to be entertaining.

    Also saw Tenet last week and I don't even know where to start with it. I wanted to like it, and respect the scope and detail, but I didn't understand enough for it to be all that entertaining. Possibly the most self indulgent film I've seen and seems to demand multiple viewings but I don't really want to sit through it again.

    So...
    The Gentlemen 7/10
    Tenet 5/10 (or 8/10 for ambition and 2/10 for making me feel stupid)
