30 19Aug21 The Courier Richard & Penny
29 23July21 Cruella 9 Well liked, well acted, fun, great escapism. Bill
28 23July21 The Father 8 Well acted, effectively portrayed confusion of dementia sufferer, but some felt not an enjoyable watch due to subject matter Bill
27 4June21 Nomadland 8 Well liked, moving, thought provoking, good acting, interesting scenery, maybe a little slow. Lindsay
26 20May21 Manhunter 6.5 Mixed views, a film of its time (the 80's), with a certain style, main character "wooden", his wife too accommodating, not always easy to follow plot (but several people watched while tired as it was on latish) Brenda
25 20May21 The Adventures of Tintin 9 Generally well liked, good "Boys own" fun,. Well made animation. Brenda
24 30Apr21 The Martian 8 Mixed views - some loved it, others hated the music or thought it lacked realism, particularly the final space scenes Richard
23 9Apr21 In the Loop ? Tim
22 9Apr21 Blackkklansman ? Tim
21 19Mar21 The Kingsman 6 Liked by some as stylish, tongue-in-cheek entertainment with a few good set pieces. Was too much fantasy and violence for others. Ann C
20 19Mar21 Shutter Island 5 A more thoughtful film but unbelievable, too long and too much in same vein as one of our previous films, Unsane, Difficult to understand how much was real & how much imagination of main character Ann C
19 05Mar21 Stan and Ollie/Unsane ? Lindsay
18 18Feb21 The Conversation (2015) 6 It was thought-provoking, clever and artfully made, although quite slow. Its portrayal of a surveillance worker growing increasingly anxious and paranoid as he saw the dangerous repercussions of his work was slightly disturbing. Bill
17 23Jan21 A Walk in the Woods (2015) 7 The general consensus was an easy to watch and enjoyable film but it would have been nice to see more of the spectacular scenery and that the story line followed the book, apart from Bill and Katz being much younger in the original prose. Brenda
