Saw new Men in Black today,it’s similar to the Ghostbusters reboot in that it’s entertaining enough but just lacks the something different factor of the originals.

Bairn liked it which is main thing.

Maradona is a brilliant watch. I saw Julian Temple’s Ibiza Silent Movie this week too which was really disappointing.

The wonderful Pride on now BBC2. Pride is a 2014 British LGBT-related historicalcomedy-drama film written by Stephen Beresford and directed by Matthew Warchus. Based on a true story, the film depicts a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners' strike in 1984, at the outset of what would become the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign.The alliance was unlike any seen before and was ultimately successful.
If too late and you have not seen it. Get it on Catch up. Folk that new what solidarity means. Quality film.

Last two films I've seen at the pictues;
Maradonna doc, focusing on his time at Napoli, superb watch.
Apollo 11, just brilliant. No narration or talking head interviews, just stunning footage with NASA & TV commentaries from the time. Great soundtrack as well. Recommend the big screen for both.

Which meant G that, like me you had a wee speck of grit in both eyes, when at the Gay Pride march after the strike,after the NUM and whole communities were defeated and devistated, NUM members from Wales and their families turned up at Pride in 1985 and lead the parade
Spendid article here.....

Another week another horror flick for me.

I saw Midsommar at the weekend. It is a slow burner that is clearly influenced by The Wicker Man, but I'd go out on a limb and say its a deeper experience than that folk-horror classic. The main character is far more involved and affected by the pagan shenanigans going on around her as opposed to Edward Woodward's unlucky polis who just experiences the strange behaviour before ultimately falling victim to it.

It's a bit gruelling , its 2hrs 30mins and most of that is concerned with building an unsettling atmosphere around 3 or 4 well earned shocks, so it wont be for everyone, but ultimately I thought it was as satisfying as it was uncomfortable.

It is absolutely stunning on a purely visual level too.

Watched Stan and Ollie recently, absolutely brilliant! Steve Coogan and John C Reilly were born to play those roles.

Saw the magnificent Blinded by the light a week past Saturday. For a Springsteen obsessive like me it was fabulous and a bit like watching what happened to me in my last year at school on the big screen, except my Bruce conversion came five years previous to the main character Javed's in the film. Mine's was in 1982 rather than 1987, but just like him I also had a mate who gave me a couple of Bruce's albums and it changed my life completely as it did the guy in the film...and even more so seeing him in concert with the E Street Band for the first time in 1985. The film is a bit corny in parts but it's beautifully made and acted, the music of course is glorious, and it was incredibly moving in parts and very funny in other parts. The racism is dreadful to watch though and you just wonder how much has changed in the intervening 32 years.

I've met Sarfraz Manzoor (the journalist whose book the film is loosely based on) a couple of times over the years....once at an Edinburgh Festival thing he was doing about 9 years ago and the other time was before a Springsteen show at the Leeds Arena in 2013. I didn't really take to the guy much..thought he was a bit of an egotist to be honest...but he is a real Springsteen fanatic and has seen the Boss around 150 times...which puts my mere 24 times into perspective !

Even if you are not a Springsteen fan I would strongly recommend the film. It's very much needed for our current times even though it's set in 1987. A very uplifting film.
