A couple from Amazon Prime.

Infinite. New sci-fi starring Mark Wahlberg. Not great. Mush have been paid some £££££ to star in this B grade effort.

Prospect. Badged as an indie sci-fi. Decent effort, if not a bit bizarre.

Went to see the new Bond on Saturday. I'm not the biggest Bond fan, and I realised too late I hadn't seen Spectre so I didn't know some of the backstory. But it was still a decent film. Usual silliness in places and plenty of explosions.

Another one for Bond last night. The good news @Springveldt was that the car park was full, our screen was full. Good times for Vue (y).

As for the film, I was ridiculously excited, think child on Christmas Eve. Perhaps over excited as the film was ulitmately a let down. Heck they didn't even have a proper grandstand opening sequence. Too much Bond is old, Bond in love, it was a goodbye to Daniel Craig more than a full on Bond film. I left feeling flat. Perhaps I will watch it on tv in 2 years time and enjoy it more.

I hope the next actor to play Bond is much younger and we have a suave Bond for a while. We have done Bond is Bourne for a bit, the pendulum needs to swing back a little now. My wife suggests the guy from Bridgerton (didn't watch it but he is the cool guy in the Audi adverts at the moment. Based on them he looks spot on)

Funniest moment of the night, we are driving home, dissecting the film, and my wife pipes up 'the woman he was in love with, she wasn't that good looking'. I saw the trap, I'm not new to this game :unsure:. 'I hadn't noticed' came my reply ;). My son was next to me in the front seat, looked across and we both rolled our eyes at the same time. Not good looking o_O:ROFLMAO::love:

Watched intro minutes of this last night. Wasn’t convinced, but might well.

I kinda get it, she's not bad by any stretch, but she did have a face liked a smacked arse.

The Cuban lady on the other hand... I was a bit gutted she didn't make a reappearance later on. :eek:

When she stopped having a face like a smacked ..... though. It depends what her standard expression is I guess :LOL:.

As for the Cuban lady, she stole the film for me. Utterly gorgeous :love: but fun and clever as well. She was everything you want in a Bond film. Great character and hopefully the producers will have picked that up and she comes back in future films.

Got to say, Bond films have been awful for years and years imo, barring Casino Royale I can't think of another good one. I've fallen asleep twice trying to watch the previous one but maybe that's age related 😅

Did you not like Skyfall? I thought that was a good one. Quantum of Solace was a stinker though.

Watched Infinite a few nights ago, was not impressed. Work must be drying up for Marky Mark if he has to pick stuff like this.

The Amazon original stuff isn't a patch on Netflix originals.

Watched Free Guy on Disney+ at the weekend and really enjoyed it. Worth an hour and a half of your time.

Daughter chose a few films from Disney+ last month when we were at my parents caravan, Cruella and Malificent 1 & 2. Was expecting them to be kiddified tosh but they weren't. Not my usual types of films but I really enjoyed all 3 of them.

I'm just watching John Lennon-Imagine on Sky Arts, really weird/odd.
A day in the life of John and Yoko.
Some songs I've never heard before, interesting different but weird.
