Watched Greyhound yesterday and thought it was great . Highly recommended.

It was good, but at 1:31 hours a bit short for a full feature movie. The Cruel Sea (1953) at 2:06 hours is still the king of the Atlantic, although the book is even better.

The movie raise the question, why did the US never deploy an aircraft carrier in the north Atlantic to protect the convoys?

My take is that is was made for today's short attention span viewers, best seen as an immersive experience on the big screen. Not a drop of real water was used, the movie mostly done by computer remote control, much like many of the oil patch workers jobs these days.

The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty----BBC Last Night 2 Episodes.

 

I Found this to be excellent watch, takes you right through his life and the power he has.

I remember in the 80s he took over an Exclusive Island Off of Queensland "Hayman Island" for 2 weeks...... and invited people who were known but not famous ....Tony Blair, just a back bench politician in a party that wasn't even in government...etc..... what was discussed was never printed but from that meetings many of the guests rose to powerful positions in their countries with the help of a certain media outlets around the world.

 

This only showed 12 hours ago, so maybe a day of so before the usual places pick it up.

Just watched a great little movie caller, "Irresistible" and can highly recommend it and all I will say about it is that it deals with a small mid-west town, party funding and elections, in a tongue-in-cheek way.

 

Watch out for the two "video sound bites" running in the credits at the end, as they are so on the button as to be untrue! So pleased I stayed with it after a fairly slow start.
