A pretty quiet month on the home movie front for me in October. However the Summer blockbusters are now starting to make their way into the living room.
Wonder Woman (2017) – IMDb
Actually quite enjoyed this story as it progressed through time telling the back story of Wonder Woman and her then apparent involvement in WWI
Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) – IMDb
Possibly the only good review you’ll ever read of this, but, here goes. I really enjoyed it. I think it’s the best transformers film by a mile. I kind of wish they had only just started doing these films now because visually, this is probably the best looking film I’ve seen, at least on my home setup, first time I think I’ve ever given Michael Bay praise. The story has obvious plot holes which I’ll happily overlook, it’s about giant transforming robots for christs sake, and the storyline isn’t too bad, the ending gets drawn out for far too long (typical Bay) and could have been about 20 minutes shorter, but overall, I actually really liked this!
Baby Driver (2017) – IMDb
Nothing new, but you can’t beat some good old fashioned car chases, and crime vs love.
The Little Hours (2017) – IMDb
Has Alison Brie (Ruth from GLOW) John C. Reilly and Dave Franco in it, but this comedy is hardly funny in the slightest and tries to throw in as much sex and tits as possible to keep you interested.
Clueless (1995) – IMDb
Hadn’t seen this since it’s initial release and a friends revelation on it being her favourite film made me to decide to give it a re-watch. It’s still enjoyable, and plenty of good one liners.
The NeverEnding Story (1984) – IMDb
Had somehow never seen this, and instantly regretted not seeing it as a child. What a fantastic fantasy story that was just a joy to watch. The horse scene thou.
I, Daniel Blake (2016) – IMDb
Tells the story of a guy who has had a heart attack and unable to work on the advise of his doctors and is caught up in the ridiculous state system of claiming benefits and support. Also befriends a struggling single parent along the way as this story highlights the main problem of many of the Govt/DWP ‘systems’ today in being that there is no room for humanity, just rules. The ending is something that is happening far too often, or very close to happening to some.
Pride (2014) – IMDb
Gays and lesbians team up with miners on strike in Wales in the 80s in a support of solidarity against the establishment. Barriers are broken and friendships formed.
Under the Skin (2013) – IMDb
An alien in the form of Scarlett Johansson drives around Scotland in a van, seduces blokes and consumes them. It’s not as good as it sounds.
