Justice League

Wonder Woman and the Flash Rule

(Edit) 24/12/2018

Gal Gadot dominates the screen whenever shes on it, and Ezra Miller as the young, brash Flash is, quite rightly overawed, Wonder Woman is after all, royalty.

The re-birth of Superman had to happen, as it does with Comic Superheroes.

An enjoyable romp, though DC have quite a lot of work to do before they can compete with the juggernaut that is the MCU.

The Beguiled

Could have been....

(Edit) 13/06/2018

Disappointing remake, Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell and Kirsten Dunst are wasted in this undercooked version. It's been a long time since I've watched the original, but I think the relationships between McBurney and the school residents were definitely explored in more depth 40 plus years ago.

Nice Work: The Complete Series

Nice Job!

(Edit) 15/05/2018

Robyn Penrose (Haydn Gwynne) and Vic Wilcox (Warren Clarke) are the main protagonists in this late 80's campus drama, in which the very different worlds of academia and business are intertwined. As Dr. Robyn Penrose, Haydn becomes the embodiment of the Goddess, Diana, to Vic Wilcox the unfulfilled and unhappy manager of Pringle and Sons, Casting and General Engineering.

Both Haydn and the much-missed Warren are superb in this award winning adaptation of David Lodge's novel.

Lord Peter Wimsey: Clouds of Witness

A Family Affair

(Edit) 22/03/2018

Lord Peter, played by the ever excellent Ian Carmichael, gets involved in a suspected murder at the home of his brother, the Duke of Denver, what follows is a classic Dorothy L. Sayers mystery, with a few red herrings thrown in for good measure. The British class system of the 20's is depicted and gently ribbed (especially the House of Lords).

Agatha Raisin: Series 1

Underwhelming

(Edit) 12/03/2018

Much as I was willing to like Agatha and her travails this didn't work for me, I felt the comedic elements weren't particularly funny and the drama, as it was, too thin.

Miss Sloane

A Jessica Chastain Tour De Force

(Edit) 26/02/2018

Superlative performance by Jessica Chastain, who carries the film - if politics and lobbying works anything like this in the US then the world's leading democracy could do better!
