Re: Finding your feet

Not my cup of tea. It was about 30 mins too long and certainly the dancing scenes needed a good edit. 2 walk outs in Edinburgh.
It was fine but did nothing for me, bland and boring.

Re: All The Money In The World

I saw this tonight at cheap £3.99 Monday at Vue. So glad I finally caught it. Christopher Plummer is mesmerising in it. Mark walberg and Michelle Williams are also on top form. This was gripping and intriguing and mesmerising. Fabulous film.

Re: Darkest Hour

I saw this at the Filmhouse this afternoon. We were the youngest in the audience which really did surprise me. It was a stirring performance by Gary Oldman and he thoroughly deserves the plaudits he's been receiving. Interesting to see the Australian Ben Mendelssohn as the King! Good supporting cast...

Re: The Post

Saw this at a packed Odeon last night with my Times+ ticket.
Really enjoyed this, Meryl Streep was brilliant in it. Just git me thinking this would make a fantastic Double Bill with All the Presidents Men!

Re: The Commuter

Hilarious action comedy. Liam Neeson in Taken 47! Still, enjoyed it as action fluff in the season of worthy films. Kept me entertained and cheered me up.

Not many surprises in there. I've gone off BAFTA since they stopped doing the free screenings!!

Re: Molly's Game

Good fast paced, well acted drama. I didn't notice the time passing. Played like a real life Grisham from the client's perspective rather than the lawyers. Interesting.

Re: The Greatest Showman

I saw the costumes from the film on display in Buenos Aires earlier this month (I'm not sure why exactly they were there, that wasn't clear!) and I quite liked the trailer so was looking forward to this. However after reading your reviews and knowing I absolutely hated Les Mis, I'm now not so sure.....

Re: Murder on the Orient Express

It was a bit slow and plodding. With the all star cast I thought it could and should have been a bit better....
