    Time Served

    1999 TV movie starring Catherine Oxenberg as a woman who takes the blame when her small son kills her abusive husband.

    I was expecting an emotional heartstring-tugging drama but it veered in a somewhat sleazy woman-in-prison direction, although justice eventually won out - more or less.

    The first half of...
    upload_2018-6-17_17-25-10.png

    Don't think I will finish it, it's so depressing - and surprisingly boring. Maybe because it's too recent, too modern. It doesn't have that elusive porn "glamour".
    In contrast, the Viper Boyz are completely over-the-top.
    Not sure what it is supposed to be: drama? parody? an excuse to do a movie about gayporn?
    It's not funny, it's not compelling, it's not sexy. It made me feel like an empty, clueless screen gazer.

    There should be better porn stories to tell.

    Really good. Mark Kermode described it as "an emotional whodunnit" which is an apt description.

    Baiknonur.jpg A young man living near the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan rescues an amnesiac French cosmonaut after her capsule lands nearby and convinces her they're engaged. It's a bit reminiscent of Goldie Hawn's Overboard plus all those stories where the boy is infatuated with the glamour girl while ignoring the steady one who really loves him,

    Very endearing and weirdly gripping. And any film with Robert De Niro and Abby Ewing in it can't be all bad. (Well, it probably could, but this one isn't.)

    This review made me laugh:

    Who knew that the Miracle Mop would become a movie? And who knew that Meryl Streep wouldn't be in it?

    This might be regarded as treasonous by my compatriots but I have never seen that. :p

    Understood about half of what was going on, but really loved it. Very darkly funny and scary.

    Insidious

    After 90 minutes I realized I had already seen it.
    Maybe I should stick with the soaps because obviously movies are not my thing.:brick:

    Beaches - the remake starring Idina Menzel and Nia Long.

    Other than the fact that it's been pared back to TV-movie length, mostly at the expense of the songs, I have no specific criticisms, but I still have to ask ... why?

    It could have done with a bit more bite perhaps, but it's very watchable and pushes all the right buttons. It's based on the true story of the female machinists at Ford who fought for equal pay back in the sixties and ended up changing the law. Some of the real women appear over the end credits which made me think a documentary on the subject might have been (even) better.

    Bonus: Sandie Shaw, a Dagenham girl herself, sings the title theme over the end credits.

    A good one! At last!

    I got Sia, but it wasn't the title theme.
