I have a local village cinema - proper old school building, but they've got comfy seats. They only show between 3 and 5 different films per week, with 1 or 2 screenings per film per day. Not too bad, but films can turn over quite quickly.

Every film is £4, and popcorn is between £1 and £3 (depending on size). No ripping off, supporting the community, and generally they seem to get good numbers.

The other village cinema 5 miles further charge £6.50 per adult - like I'm going to get ripped off like that :lol:

The nearest Vue cinema charges between £8 and £12 depending on day and time - I guess that's still better than London prices.


What are they screening, Back to the Future?


Nope, all the most popular latest films - I saw Star Wars in the Christmas holidays, they showed 1917, and this week they're showing Emma, The Invisible Man and Parasite.


You lucky so and so, my village cinema gets two 'contemporary' releases 4 - 6 months after their initial theatrical run and due to demographics of the area, it's rarely anything I'm interested in.

Fair dos that's the worst Welsh accent I've heard since Tom Hardy's grotesque effort in 'Locke'


You missed in Downey Jr. in Doolittle I then assume?

Lol, I'm not a man, I don't feel a need to measure everything ;)

It's a normal medium-sized cinema, decent screen, with capacity for about 200 people I'd guess?

Did I mention the cheap popcorn?

They were covered in one of my posts, but as we were initially seeking replacements for RDJ and Rafe Spall I sort of dismissed them on the basis of being decades older than those characters. They're also of an age where only certain types of role are on offer, they're not going to pop up in all sorts of things or be go-to hires.

Just finished it there. Very feel good, old school Ron Howard/Spielberg-y feel to it.

Maybe First Man spoiled me, but it just lacked weight and felt dated. Not a bad way to spend a couple hours though.

First Man had a Malick feel to it at times while Apollo 13 is pure Howard. For me Howard was always the right side of shite

First Man just had more weight to it in terms of plot/themes. It also examined masculinity a bit rather than just exulted in it.

Both have their place, but Apollo 13's were very much of the Die Hard era.

The effects in First Man were also obviously far better.

Apollo 13's CG holds up ok, though it did look like toy story at times.

Give it a go.


Watched this a few days ago, definitely longer than it needed to be but still quite enjoyed it. Not a patch on Hereditary though.

I will say this for Aster, he knows how to create an unsettling atmosphere.

Never seen that actress before but she's pretty good, apart from also being pretty dreamy. That guy from We're the Millers played the shroom part beautifully, brought back some good memories :lol:

Watched Lady Bird belatedly and thought it was great. Ronan gives me a pain in my arse as she is so Billy Barry in her interviews, stage school for the non Irish, but again she is very good. She is very subtle when she needs to be so I have been wrong to not watch her stuff. No Amy Adams but still a great actress. The scenes with her brother are a bit shit but the rest is super

Mindhorn randomly popped up on the telly on Sunday night and really enjoyed it.
Poor old Isle of Mann gets an awful going over.

It's a pisstake of Bergerac/John Nettles by the better actor from the mighty boosh.

Essie Davis looking rather well too.

Fighting With My Family is a cracking little flick. Laugh out loud funny in places and a well written underdog story. Jack Lowden and Florence Pugh are brilliant. Vince Vaughan also doesn't make me want to punch the screen when he's on, which is a rarity. WWE's not something I've ever been interested in and it kept my attention throughout.

As an aside, I'd not really gotten the fuss people were making over Pugh's looks 'til now. Black hair and heavy eye make up with her pale skin and pretty face... basically my kryptonite.

the guy that plays LUCIFER is a welshman, but i have no idea if he is doing an english accent or a welsh one on that show.Rhys from Americans is also a younger welshman and ofcourse the only other"younger" active Welshman is Matt Ryan (constantine on those CW tV shows) and his british accents makes my ears bleed..was funny to see ryan and Ellis (lucifer) on that crossover episode of CW..it was like the most number of welshman ever seen on American TV :P

Ellis is doing a fairly posh (and slightly camp) English accent in Lucifer. Ryan is clearly Welsh although he seems to be trying to do something a bit northen on occasion. He looked the part, but really didn't sound it. Constantine is meant to be Scouse.

Just amazing what was done, the docking footage between the Eagle and Columbia after the landing itself was breathtaking.
The skill, nerve and bravery of the Apollo 11 crew.

Saw 1917 last weekend. It was pretty good, but not an epic. It was much too linear for me. Although I liked that they didn't try to make it fantastical where he confronts and thwarts German after German. Most of the time he just tried to run away, which is more realistic. 7/10.

I was more commenting on Floppy's comment about the actors career being on the skids because of it. It's not a career ending film.

Watched Bucarau last night.

Concerns a mysterious remote Brazilian village community and their struggle v nefarious outsiders.

Worth a watch, quite gory.

Watched Contagion there since it popped up on Netflix - good show and ridiculously accurate in the details, even down to a bat in China starting the virus :lol: :uhoh:

I've watched a few films recently, the most notable being:

John Wick 3 - fun, but really rather silly at this point. The expansion of the assassin world and infrastructure has gone too far and some of the fighting feels more video-gamey than in the previous two. Keanu seemed to put on a bit of weight between 2 and 3 which I found quite distracting since there's not supposed to be any time gap between the two and it's a noticable difference.

Kubo and the two strings - had heard it was really good, but it left me cold. There was practically zero humour in it and a whole heap of mawkish, sentimentality, which I'm pretty allergic to in films. The animation is gorgeous, though.

Prospect - really enjoyed this. It's a scrungey bit of lo-fi sci-fi with all the gear looking very analogue. Toxic environment, so every character is in a different cobbled together protective suit. Shades of space western, with it centring on an ambitious prospecting job on a frontier moon replete with the reprobates frontiers attract. Some of the dialogue Pedro Pascal got to deliver was a delight and felt loquacious in a 19th century kind of way. Tightly plotted, well paced and a perfect 90 minute run time.

I've just watched the trailer on IMDB. It is beyond corny, the music, the dialogue, the costumes... :lol: I will give it a rewatch as well soon, looks fun indeed
