The Boat That Rocked (2009) ★★★

Funny, endearing, but overlong and not as snappy as it could be, this feelgood film about a culture war in Britain and the pirate radio DJs who provided a service their counterparts on the mainland couldn't is a bit baggy but very watchable.

It's clear Richard Curtis is a better writer than a director, though he compiled a fantastic jukebox soundtrack and terrific ensemble cast for this film.

Logan Lucky (2017) ★★★★

Steven Soderbergh came out of retirement to make this excellent heist movie and, for that, I am very grateful.

The film is a perfect mix of humour and tension, so it's not too dissimilar to The Italian Job in that respect, and benefits from a great script, fantastic performances from Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, and practically unrecognisable supporting appearances from Katie Holmes and Seth McFarlane.

This was my first viewing and I thoroughly enjoyed the film I'll put the Blu-ray back on my 'to watch' pile so I definitely watch it again in the next couple of months.
