TV Movie:The Hunt (2012)

Sunday at 00:30 on BBC2 A man working at a nursery school in a Danish countryside town is wrongly accused of child abuse. Despite his innocence, the community quickly turns against him and his life starts to unravel. I’ve not seen it, but reports are very good. Advertisements

2018.45 Widows

I’m struggling a bit with motivation at the moment and the thought of writing long film reviews is not filling my glass today. So, I shall experiment with being quick. Widows is about some widows, no surprise there, who are forced through plot mechanics to pull off a heist that one of the dead husbands […]

2018.44 Bohemian Rhapsody

The Good Lady Foxy Her Indoors and I grabbed a spur of the moment opportunity to go and see the Queen film, no not one staring Helen Mirren or Claire Foy, this one had Rami Malek in the lead role as the great pretender himself, Freddie Mercury. We didn’t really know what to expect, I’d […]

TV Movie: Gone Girl (2014)

Tonight at 21:00 on a channel called “W” – hopefully that’s on Freeview, it’s part of UKTV Play which does Dave so I’m guessing it should be. Gone Girl is a “disappeared wife” tale with Rosamund Pike as Amy, the wife, and Ben Affleck as the husband, Nick, who is suspected of being involved with […]

TV Movie: Bridge of Spies (2015)

TV Movie: The Visit (2015)

Friday at 21:00 on Film4 This is classified as a black comedy horror and it’s written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan so I assume that we can expect some surprises. The tagline is… Grandma’s Rules: 1. Have a great time. 2. Eat as much as you want. 3. Don’t ever leave your room after 9:30 […]

2018.42 A Simple Favour

A Simple Favour is an odd film in that it defies categorisation; there are elements of drama, comedy, thriller and psychological whodunnit. You may find this upsetting, but I didn’t mind the constant genre switching. I think it’s down to the performances of the two leads, Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, they both play their roles excellently […]

TV Movie: A Most Wanted Man (2014)

Wednesday at 21:00 on Film4 This is simply my favourite Philip Seymour Hoffman film. He plays Gunther Bachmann, an aging spy, caught up in a complex situation when a half-Chechen, half-Russian, immigrant turns up in Hamburg’s Islamic community to lay claim to his father’s ill gotten fortune. It’s not a car chase shooty spy film […]
