Pop Pirates
In this fast paced children's movie, a schoolboy reggae/ska group named The Pirates (similar to Musical Youth) is trying their luck out in a contest but the members don't know that their lead singer Paul is involved in a video piracy scheme run by his nasty uncle and gets one of the others in danger. This is one of the later Children's Film Foundation movies from the mid 80's which were shown on BBC1 usually on a Friday afternoon and is a fun entertaining ride. It features a cameo role for Roger Daltrey as a producer and also Bill Treacher who would go on to play Arthur Fowler in Eastenders. Shot on location in and around Brighton, it has a very Summery feel about it. There are thrills to be had as one band member is kidnapped and locked inside an old barge whilst the baddies carry on with their business of copying music video tapes to sell on. The story's conclusion is rather rushed I felt. It's not the best CFF movie I've seen but then again this made was in the dying days of the company. Still worth a watch though.

My Brother Loves Me Too Much
A truly awful Japanese teen comedy about a high school girl who has confessed her love 12 times to boys in the past but has been rejected by them all. Now she's got several boys chasing after her which includes her adopted brother and her teacher. Comedy movies like this should go straight to the bin as it is so bad. It's so unfunny and the characters are written badly. It's terrible to have an incest like plot going on with also a creepy teacher trying his best to seduce a young girl. I found it very hard to watch all of this movie. Most of the male characters are portrayed as preening, effeminate pretty-boys but this type of role has been popular over in Japan for a long time. A total waste of a movie with a throwaway plot. Utter garbage.

March Comes in Like a Lion 2
The concluding part in the fantastic double bill about a young Shogi player named Kuriyama - a loner who finds friendship and the meaning of family with a trio of kind sisters. There is more drama here than in the first movie as one of the Kawamoto sisters Hina is bullied at school, the sudden reappearance of their unwelcome father and Kiriyama's slump in form at shogi. Once more it faithfully follows the main plotlines in what I saw in the 2nd season of the anime and the characters in live form are spot on. The cast that's been picked to bring these characters to life have been nothing short of brilliant. It builds to a very satisfying conclusion as Kiriyama's bonds with the Kawamoto's is strengthened even more and he triumphs in one of the biggest shogi matches of his life. One of the best manga/anime adaptations I've seen. It was a joy to watch.

Girl Flu.                                  (2016)
A young girl of 12 nicknamed Bird by her stoner mother is embarrassed during her school picnic in front of her classmates when she has her first menstrual cycle. Confused at what has has happened, she tries to ask her mother for help but she is out of her head most of the time so Bird has to figure out and deal with this new chapter in her life for herself. It's not a special movie at all but Girl Flu has a nice coming of age story to tell. Jade Pettyjohn delivers a great performance as the lead character Bird with Katee Sackhoff as her mother. She is for a lot of the time in various stages of undress. The movie does have some predictable moments but there is some sparkling dialogue to be had between mother and daughter. The plot also touches on being bullied and first love. This movie will be very relatable for girls of Bird's age that are going through the same thing and trying to find their way in the world. Overall the movie is charming, sometimes funny and also a little bit weird.

Gerald Thomas is most famous for directing the Carry On movies but before that he also directed some 'b' movies and this is one of them. Based on a play by Arthur Hailey, it tells the story of a little boy who accidentally gets trapped in a Toronto bank vault and of the numerous attempts to rescue him. Robert Beatty heads the cast, which features a young Sean Connery as one of the would-be rescuers. It's a surprisingly good and tense movie with time ticking down as with the oxygen rapidly running out inside the vault the boy could be dead by the time the rescuers break in. For a movie with a simple plot, it's gripping stuff and really gets you involved. If you've 75 mins to spare, you can't go wrong with this movie.

Hirugao
The continuation of the Japanese drama series which follows 2 people that have cheated on their respective partners with each other. Set 3 years after the events of the drama, Sawa who has lost everything including her friends and family has moved to a seaside town to rebuild her life and to try and forget about Kitano by working in a restaurant. A flyer posted in her mailbox advertises a talk about fireflies that Kitano is doing very close to where she lives. After meeting each other, they find that their old feelings come back and Kitano leaves his wife for Sawa. Things seem to be settling down for the pair until she confesses what she has done to a colleague in the restaurant which turns everybody in the place against her. She also thinks that Kitano might be sneaking away on some days to be with his wife. I never watched the drama series of Hirugao so I thought I'd be lost with this movie but it didn't make a difference. The story can easily be picked up if you've never seen the drama. The movie is basically about Sawa's inability to move on properly with her life despite moving somewhere new and Kitano not really sure if he wants to dump his wife for good or not. The most interesting character in the movie is Kitano's wife Noriko who looks normal on the outside but madness and paranoia is starting to take over. Her actions near the end of the movie prompt a tragedy. This is a nice movie with a message that illicit love cannot succeed. There is always a price to pay. Aya Ueto, Ayumi Ito and Takumi Saito deliver solid performances and the cinematography of capturing the sun-baked seaside town of Mihama in all of it's Summer glory is great.

My Teacher
A high school student Hibiki falls in love with her history teacher Mr Ito and confesses to him. He turns her down but she still pesters him and over time Ito starts falling for her and during one encounter on the school roof during a festival when Hibiki is wearing a wedding dress, Ito kisses her. However, another student has seen this encounter and taken pictures on their mobile. Soon the pictures go viral and Ito is asked to appear before the school board to explain himself. Schoolgirl crushes on a male teacher is part and parcel of school life and most of the time nothing ever really happens in most occasions. It's a phase and once they start dating somebody of their own age that crush is soon forgotten. This movie couldn't have come out at a worst time with the current climate of scandals and the MeToo movement as it has a very inappropriate tale to tell. It seems there are several students in the movie who have crushes on teachers and there doesn't seem to be anybody telling them it is wrong. In fact, it is actually encouraged by fellow students which is rather stupid telling them to act on misguided impulses. I think Western audiences might feel put off by the irresponsible story that takes place but in Japan young adolescent girls love this kind of tale and lap it up gleefully. I was frankly disturbed by it all despite how good the overall production is and the fine performances of the cast.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure                                  (2018)
The 3rd and final movie in the Maze Runner trilogy has a fitting end to the story but it does go on for far too long for my liking. It does though tie up loose ends and finds a way to close out the series in a surprisingly emotional send-off. It is fairly predictable at times, has some good action scenes and there are one or two genuine surprises for fans. Dylan O'Brien gives a decent performance with some good turns also by Kaya Scodelario, Aidan Gillen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Giancarlo Esposito, and Rosa Salazar. This movie is far from perfect but The Death Cure was better than what I expected.

Ready Player One
A fantastic movie by Steven Speilberg! This movie is full of stuff from when I was growing up - a journey filled with absolute nostalgia of pop culture from the 80s and early 90s. The entire time you can spot references or so called easter eggs throughout the entire movie. You get that feeling of being a kid again and reliving your childhood. The music is also cool and what better way of starting the movie than with Van Halen's Jump to let you know you're about to step back into the 80s! The CGI effects are brilliant. Even though the movie runs for over 2 hrs it never lags and the time passes by very quickly because you're enjoying yourself so much. Just go on and let this stunning and fun and loving piece of cinema wash over you. You'll be glad you did!

Solo: A Star Wars Story
Thankfully better than the awful The Last Jedi, this movie is about the young Han Solo and how he came to meet Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian. It also tells how he came to acquire the Millennium Falcon. The movie is solid, if a bit predictable at times. The big difference compared to TLJ is the plot has a flow to it with no stupid side-stories that make no sense and pathetic attempts at humour. There is plenty of exciting set pieces with some nice twists thrown in. The cast is great with Alden Ehrenreich doing a good job as the young Han but it is Donald Glover that shines the most as Lando Calrissian. Overall, a good movie, not quite Star Wars as you expect it as a hardcore fan, but a good action movie nevertheless and a big improvement on TLJ.

Deadpool 2
Whilst this isn't as good as it's predecessor, it is still a very funny superhero movie full of stupid physical antics and harsh banters from the merc with the mouth who does his usual thing of fighting crime, making jokes, and embarrassing criminals. The plot has Deadpool trying to save a young mutant named Russell from being killed by a cybernetic soldier from the future named Cable. To stop Cable, Deadpool forms a group with other mutants and calls the group "X-Force". Sounds familiar doesn't it and you'd be right as it does copy parts of The Terminator. The jokes are on a par with the first movie and I did find myself laughing out a lot. Ryan Reynolds delivers an amazing performance again as Deadpool and his co-stars are awesome as well. All in all, Deadpool 2 gives you exactly what you expected: comedy, action, and an overall good time. I loved it.
