Eye In The Sky

Not a film you could say you'd enjoyed. But it was excellent none the less.

Basic premise... Military target terrorists in Kenya with drones. They have a green light to strike, when a young girl enters the kill zone. The whole of the film then debates the moral dilemma of justifying her death compared to the countless horrific deaths the suicide bombers will cause. There are no winners here.

Alan Rickmans last film.

8/10 from me.

Darkest Hour
I've always loved Gary Oldman. IMO he is one of the most versatile actors to grace the screen. The contrast of the characters he plays showcases what a talent he is. It's a wonder he's never won an acadamy award....yet!
He plays the great Winston Churchill to amazing effect. I found him quite literally mesmerising. The film too is a well made biopic to what is probably Britain's bleakest moment the prelude to Operation Dynamo (the subject to last year's 'Dunkirk').
Truly this is an excellent film with a goose-bump inducing performance from Mr Oldman; and if he's overlooked again for the Oscar he deserves, it would be a travesty.

8.5/10


Really? I found it poorly paced, pretty boring and quite overall over rated. Well acted and well shot yeah but I couldn’t watch it again if you paid me.


The Post: A very well put together film and a very important and timely Spielberg adaption of the role the Washington Post has in revealing the Pentagon Papers in the early 70s. Drags at times and it’s like “yeah I get it, can you just hurry up now” butboverall a pretty good film. Superb performances and definitely worth any nominations thatve come its way.
