Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

An enjoyable biopic of Freddie Mercury and a bit of Queen. Rami Malek is excellent as Mercury and the music, especially Live Aid, triumphant, but aside from Mercury getting cajoled into going solo by his management there's not an awful lot of actual drama involved and the film as a whole comes across as sedate as a film about the actual Queen than it does a rock n' roll biopic. The Dirt this is not.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
(2019)

You know when you are mildly entertained by a film but never really gripped or excited by it? Well Hobbs and Shaw is a splendid example of a film of that ilk.

Full of action and a hell of a lot of banter style bickering between Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Shaw (Jason Statham) that takes away from the drama, despite this being constantly watchable it never truly became that interesting until the final half hour.

Totally agree can't stand the Micheal Bay louder crash bang boom wallop boom soulless ott films. Want some sort of plot and slightly believable action. Would rather watch a slow film like vvitch at least that's well made.

Hunter Killer (2018)

A really enjoyable old school naval action thriller on the lines of The Hunt for Red October.

Although it initially seems like it might play out like a piece of typical America is here to save the world (and the Russian President) bollocks, it really doesn't continue along those lines. A Russian commander played by the now sadly no longer with us, Michael Nyqvist, has as much to do with saving the day as Gerard Butler does. The acting, aside from a hammy Gary Oldman, is all convincing and helps to ratchet up the tension.

Speaking of tension. There was more knuckle whitening tension in any five minutes of this film than the entirety of Hobbs and Shaw.

HAUNTED HARBOR (1944)
REPUBLIC SERIAL 15 CHAPTERS

Captain Jim Marsden is wanted for a murder he did not commit. He heads out to an island where he believes the real murder is in hiding. When there, reports of a sea monster are keeping people away..

Top notch serial movie serial. Exciting, action packed with some great cliffhanger endings.

Project A. 1983.

Turn of the 20th century, Hong Kong navy are failing at the hands of Pirates and Sergeant Lung hatches a plan to rescue a English Admiral.

Classic Jackie Chan movie with his comedy style mixed with fighting and dare devil stunts. Along side his friends Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao its like watching the three stogees with good choreography with a bar and bike fight. At least Chan proved that there was gravity in this film from a clock tower.
