    Yes, another one. But I watch them mainly for the set designs, and this movie has some cool rooms. No gore whatsoever so it's also doable for those who don't like horror.

    First time out for me. The "Hollywood takes on The Troubles" thing is at best awkward. But I've yet to see a Harrison Ford performance I didn't like.​

    Yet another film I've watched for the first time.​

    Some good moments, but on the whole...underwhelming.

    I found it very Bird Box-y

    Angels & Demons



    Another first. It was an enjoyable way to pass 2 and a half hours, but not as gripping as the previous film (which apparently is actually the sequel to this story in the novels). This one felt significantly more ersatz Bondian or Bournian. After viewing the original, the "twist" could be seen coming from the moment the relevant character appeared onscreen. Ian McKellen's absence did it no favours, either.​

    Extremely fun--I hope it leads to a spate of these types of "whodunit" films.

    Happy Is The Bride



    With a cast of very familiar faces and breezy British charm of the late Fifties. This is another film that was new to me.​

    Lovely, witty and I even liked some of the songs.

    I don't know what it is supposed to represent - or if it is supposed to represent anything at all - but it had me glued to the screen. It's miserable, awkward, funny and tense.

    Part screwball comedy, part moving relationship drama, very compassionate and funny, hugely watchable with lots of great characters. It reminded me a bit of Annie Hall and also made me want to re-watch Alan Parker's Shoot the Moon, which I haven't seen in years.

    Strong performances in a neat drama-thriller that doesn't try hard to be unpredictable or super-original.

    Ture Sventon. The 1972 version.
    The private investigator with the flying carpet and the million disguises, forever in pursuit of his arch-enemy Ville "the weasel" Vessla.

    Seems reminiscent of Neil Simon's Murder By Death (1976).

    My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

    I watched the sequel a little while ago, which put me in the mood for a rewatch of the original.

    Sort of a Face/Off spin/off. I liked it.

    Oh gosh, I remember walking out of the cinema during that film!

    Oh wow, Sydney St James and Pierce Lawton together at last!

    Oh wow. I'd love to know more about this. If memory serves I've only ever done this twice. And only one of those was purely down to my enjoyment of the film.

    In fact this entire train of thought could be derailed into a new thread (if I had a proclivity for intellectual property theft).
