Mary Queen of Scots

Awful rubbish

(Edit) 28/07/2019

This is one of those films which makes your heart sink in the first minute - you carry on watching in the hope it will get better but it just gets worse. It really doesn't know what it wants to be - costume drama, historical re-enactment or fantasy. It ends up just being a mess with absurd dialogue in absurd accents and with distracting and non-sensical 'colour blind' casting which just adds to the overall silliness. All in all, it has the feel of a production by a bunch of millennials who know nothing of history and are concerned simply with superficial amateur dramatics and imposing their PC gloss on 16th century Britain at the expense of any connection with reality. If you want to see how this sort of thing should really be done then watch Wolf Hall.

Vendetta

Much better than expected

(Edit) 13/03/2018

Ignore the lilly-livered reviews in the mainstream liberal media, this is a fast-moving and exciting film with a strong message. It is violent so not for everyone but it is based on the oldest of good vs. evil themes and the sides are clear. In an age when we are constantly let down by lying politicians and the police are far more interested in protecting minority sensibilities than fighting crime it is hard not to be cheered as the evil scum are cleared from the streets of London. Danny Dyer is a man of few words but his mission is righteous even if his methods are a little suspect at times. Cheer him on.....
