What movies or TV shows are you watching (2018)

Recommended Posts

Just binge watched the first 6 episodes ( season 1 ) of Sneaky Pete on a plane, started off a little unsure but when Bryan Cranston appeared things started to hot up and now can’t wait for the next flight to finish season 1 off !!
Hopefully season 2 was as good ( anybody ?? ) and season 3 should be starting soon .

THE LUNCH BOX , INDIA 2014  set in mumbai  the tale of an unhappy housewife who realises  her husbands lunchbox which she daily carefully makes is delivered to the wrong person, she realises that its gone astray and in the next one writes a note,  the guy who its delivered to is a lonely older guy about to retire and via daily notes they become friends ,, IMO  a delightfully engaging film. 8 /10

Seconded.

That's director Ritesh Batra's 1st feature (2013).

 

The only thing that bothered me when I first watched it was that I thought there is no way that the lunchbox delivery could really exist.

But it does - a fascinating and unique cultural custom.

 

After that I watched his second, "The Sense of an Ending (2017), which I would recommend highly.

Great cast - Jim Broadbent. Charlotte Rampling. Harriet Walter - really impressive - she shows how to take a small part and make it special.

I love "unraveling the truth" films - when they work, which this one does.

(Iranian director Ashgar Farhadi's films are another great example of this. Such as:

 

MV5BYzI1ZDI3ODctMTdmYi00MTAxLTlhY2MtZGMz

 

2012 Academy Award - Best Foreign Language Film).

Watched the movie "Mary Queen of Scots" last night and thought it was good, more so because it gave another insight to the machinations behind the reigns of both Mary and Elizabeth.

 

I enjoyed the Elizabeth I movies, which contained some historical facts, although not in actual timeline, however this one was different because it sort of went behind the scenes, and if I was to draw a conclusion in just a few lines, I would say certainly that Mary was the victim of greed, betrayal and split loyalties by her nobles and family, whereas Elizabeth, not so much.

One thing about living oseas is you do miss some good stuff from your home country , thank god for TVF and IMDB !!

 

Just watched Dead Man’s Shoes (2004), a gritty violent movie about revenge.

 

From IMDB:

 

“Richard returns home from military service to a small town in the Midlands. He has one thing on his mind: revenge. Payback for the local bullies who did some very bad things to his brother. At first his campaign employs guerrilla tactics, designed to frighten the men and put them ill at ease. But then he steps up his operation, and one by one these local tough guys are picked off by the terrifying angel of vengeance that Richard has become.”

 

Will take a look, thanks.

 

That's director Shane Meadows.

 

His next film which he wrote and directed, "This Is England" (2006), is a masterpiece. Unforgettable.

Was just thinking about it within the last few days.

Also reminded of it frequently due to USA news, as even though it depicts 1983 England it's very reminiscent of the discontent in the USA and the simplistic scapegoats people turned to which led to Trump.

 

One of the great child performances by 1st timer Thomas Turgoose (2nd from left), and brillant work by Stephen Graham (middle):

Another great child actor was David Bradley , his performance in this touching/funny/gritty story about a young lad and his trials and tribulations suffered on growing up in late 60’s Barnsley and his friendship with his pet kestrel was legendary.

The humour in the school football scene is masterful and brings back memories of 1960’s Yorkshire.

( sub titles might be required for anyone not familiar with a strong Yorkshire accent ).

I still remember - with great fondness. - Carry On Camping. Why? Because I was 10 years old, and it showed my first exposure to bare boobies! 😎image.png.89742aa3b97141ef31cc60c062456457.png

The child performance they all have to be judged against:
