Logan Lucky
Steven Soderbergh returns with another heist movie. Although it lacks the charm of the Oceans trilogy, it is still a good movie to watch. It's about 2 brothers wanting to pull of a heist during a NASCAR driving race and recruiting a criminal serving time inside a jail and his 2 younger dim-witted siblings. The movie is well put together with a good script. The cast is excellent with Channing Tatum and Adam Driver as the 2 brothers but it's probably Daniel Craig who stands out among the cast with his bleached blonde hair as explosives expert Joe Bang. He steals every scene he's in and it looked like he'd been let loose and was enjoying himself. He does a very convincing Southern accent as well. Good for him and nice to see him play a semi-comedic role. I'm sure those that loved the Oceans trilogy will like this movie. Whilst it doesn't have the brilliant twists and turns of those movies, it is an entertaining ride from start to finish.

The Great Riviera Bank Robbery
A quite remarkable British bank heist movie set in Nice, France. An ex-military officer recruits a team of his former colleagues to rob the vaults of a wealthy bank to aid his nationalistic right wing cause. Using the city's sewer network, they burrow their way inside the bank and empty it of $15 million dollars. I really enjoyed this movie from the meticulous and flawless way the team work out how to get inside the bank vault right through to their getaway. The story is based on a real life heist that took place. A young Ian McShane is brilliant as the charismatic leader and brains of the operation. He is ably supported by Warren Clarke and Stephen Greif amongst others. The director Francis Megahy would later team up once more with McShane for a couple of Lovejoy episodes. Even when things do go sour for the robbers after the heist, there is still a couple more twist and turns to finish the movie on a high. This little known movie definitely deserves to be seen more. It's a wonderful caper movie.

Made in France
A Muslim journalist named Sam infiltrates a jihadist cell that is planning a terrorist attack in the suburbs of Paris. This is a tense French thriller that gives the viewer an idea inside the mindset of a small terrorist cell. I think you'll know from the start that at some point in the movie Sam will get discovered by his brothers in the group that he's a traitor to their cause. It's rather predictable in that respect. One or two get suspicious of his behaviour. The last 20 mins is gripping and exciting as Driss, the mad leader of the cell changes the target location where their bomb will go off to somewhere where Sam's young son is attending. Good acting by the French cast. I'm not sure if this movie was actually shown in French cinemas as it was unfortunately released in between two of the atrocious terror attacks in Paris.

Bridgend
The storyline of this movie revolves around actual events that took place in the Bridgend area of South Wales that had a high suicide rate among teenagers from 2007-2012 and no explanation was given for why this was happening as the teens killed themselves without giving one. The movie portrays the reckless life of teenagers and uses the clichés that are already well known in adolescence representations: parties ruled by alcohol, cigarette, riots and dips in the lake, in a quest for freedom, to experience feelings without worrying about the consequences of your own acts. Despite having an efficient cast which includes Hannah Murray of Game of Thrones fame, the script is rather weak and it doesn't develop the characters at all. Even by the end of the movie, the viewer is no clearer in knowing why the teenagers killed themselves. No future perhaps? Tired of living in such a deprived and depressing area? Who knows.

Gonks Go Beat
This will go down in history as being one of the worst British movies ever made! A movie that has absolutely nothing really to recommend it. It's a musical re-working of the Romeo and Juliet storyline, with a unique sci-fi twist. An alien is sent to a futuristic Earth (which looks remarkably like the 1960s) where mankind is divided into two warring countries (Beatland and Ballad Isle). His goal is to bring the two countries together through music and romance. So who are these Gonks then? A egg shaped toy that became popular in the UK for a short while in the 60's. They only have a very minor role in the movie. I'm still not sure what possessed comedy greats in Kenneth Connor, Frank Thornton and Terry Scott to take part in this terrible movie. I couldn't wait for it to finish - that's how shit it was. I wish I could rewind time back so that I could have watched something better instead.

Francis Covers the Big Town
The 4th movie featuring Francis the talking mule is probably one of the best in the series as Francis and Peter arrive in NYC. Peter gets a job in a newspaper company and sets his sights on being a reporter. With Francis getting all the big scoops for him, Peter's dreams on being a reporter comes true but it also turns out to be his biggest nightmare when he is implicated for a murder he didn't do. These movies starring Francis gets better and better with each outing and this one is definitely the funniest. Chill Wills once more provides the mule with his voice and the interaction between Francis and Peter is brilliant. I laughed as Peter tries to explain that it's the mule that gets him his top stories and each time he's carted away to the psychiatrists as a mad man!! Francis thankfully gets more screentime than the other previous entries in the series. I have no idea how the filmmakers managed to get the mule to move his mouth in time with the vocals. Pretty impressive I've gotta say. As ridiculous the premise of a talking mule is to viewers, definitely give this movie a try and I'm sure it'll put a smile on your face.

This is the incredible story of the surprise package of the Euro 2016 football tournament. Wales had never been in a major championship since 1958 and their brilliant winning streak in the qualifying campaign ensured they would go to France and play with the big boys. Nobody expected them to do well but what they did during the tournament made them heroes back home in Wales. The story in this documentary starts back in the dark days of 2011/12 when the sudden death of Wales' manager Gary Speed stunned the nation. Results then went against them and they plummeted down to 117th in the FIFA rankings. During the Euro qualifiers something seemed to click for the players and they went on an amazing run. The rest as they say is history. There are interviews with most of the players and the management with Wales as they look back on each game in the tournament and it also shows the magnificent support by the Welsh fans who played their part in lifting the team into achieving what they did. If you're a football fan you will love this story of the underdog doing well.

Girls und Panzer the Movie
The tank girls of Oorai Academy are back and have to once again save their school from being closed by having to fight against a professional university tank team. Oorai's friends from rival teams they have defeated decide to join up with them for this great battle. This is an excellent follow up to the brilliant anime series. The tank battles and strategies are given more time to develop than the series thus making the cat and mouse duel more exciting to watch. The movie also has way more ridiculous tank physics that breaks the laws of physics like a roller-coaster scene that takes place. If you're a tank fanatic then you also get to see new tanks being introduced such as the massive 600MM "Karl-Gerät". The plot may be weak but it's the action scenes that's the main focus of the movie and it definitely does not disappoint. Girls Und Panzer der Film is definitely one of the best and most enjoyable anime movie I have ever seen with it's fun cast of characters and longer and thrilling tank battle scenes.

God of War
An epic Chinese action movie which charts the rise of General Qi Jiguang, a famous soldier and hero in Chinese culture. The movie is set during during the 16th Century during the Wokou pirate raids by the Japanese on the Ming Dynasty's coast as Ming soldiers attempt to fight them back. General Qi takes command of the soldiers and trains them into a disciplined unit in order to take on the Japanese pirates. Even though the movie slows down during the middle, the action scenes are fantastic and well choreographed. They are bloody, brutal and very exciting. Many fans of Sammo Hung will be disappointed with this movie because the real star is Wenzhuo Zhao. Sammo may not have that big a role in this movie but when he does appear on screen he shines. To be honest I've never heard of Qi Jiguang so this serves as a great introduction for audiences to a man that galvanised Chinese forces against foreign invaders. There have been many complaints that the Western soundtrack doesan't fit in with the movie but I didn't see anything wrong with it at all. All in all, it was a very enjoyable Chinese action/war movie.

Girl Asleep
This is a surreal coming of age story of a 15 year old Australian girl who finds herself in a strange world full of weird and wonderful characters after falling asleep. It's beautifully shot with a very faithful recreation of 70's fashion and home decor. But sadly it falls flat with a distinct lack of narrative tension and confusing fantasy element which adds nothing to the movie. Despite the very accurate recreation of the physical world of the 70's, much of the dialogue feels very out of place as it's a bit modern. Many will love this movie as it's a different coming of age story to the norm but I wasn't too enamoured with it.

The Mouse That Roared
A miniscule European state, the Duchy of Grand Fenwick, sees a way out of bankruptcy by declaring war on the US (to be followed by a quick surrender, and rehabilitative aid from the generous victor). An invasion force, with 12th century chainmail and crossbows, is thereupon dispatched to New York. But by mistake, the commander captures the most powerful bomb ever, along with its inventor and his beautiful daughter, and brings them back to Grand Fenwick. Peter Sellers is excellent in this movie. He plays three roles: Gloriana XII, the old reigning Duchess; Baron Mountjoy, the crafty prime minister; and Tully Bascomb, the inept army commander. The plot pokes fun at the wrangling of international politics and nuclear arms proliferation in a money-making scheme by the world's smallest country that goes horribly and laughably wrong. This satire leaves nobody unscathed - the Russians, Americans, British, Cinese and French all get jabbed. The action is fast-paced without getting too slapstick. It's a clever, amusing movie that runs a little long but is nevertheless guaranteed to make you have a fun time watching it.

Inner Sanctum
A man murders his wife and dumps her body on a train, then takes refuge in a sleepy small town. A young boy witnesses the murder but keeps it a secret. The man and the boy wind up in the same boarding house, sharing close quarters, and trying to cover-up their unsettling secrets. A tense, creepy, well written and acted movie based on a radio series. A tightly edited and suspenseful movie that doesn't try to fool the audience about who's guilty of the crime. The movie's somewhat uneventful beginning with a sharp turn on the rail and a man who can tell what time it is without a watch with the mysterious Dr. Valonius seems a bit slow but it ties all the loose ends together at the end of the story.
