Movies To Look Forward to in 2017

Wow. 2017 looks like it's going to be an awesome one for the cinema:

Martin Scorsese has a new film coming out. 2 young women in a small town realise that they are not who... NOT! Its a shoot 'em up, in a warehouse, in 1978?

Baby Driver

Edgar Wright is the director and writer behind The Cornetto Trilogy - Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and World's End - which if you haven't watched, you should.

He has created a new action movie, which would be my number 1 choice, if it had Mr Pegg in it. Which it doesn't.

However, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx are in it so it will still be awesome!


Britain's answer to the German invasion of France was to launch the British Expeditionary Force. After the First World War, being a regular member of the British Army was looked down upon. Funding for the army was cut dramatically to lower than pre-war numbers and overall, it was a bad place to be. 

So an unprepared army going into a foreign country, under-funded, under-equipped and badly led. What could possibly go wrong?

Then there is the much awaited Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2.

Baby Groot. Star-Lord. Gamora. Subtle Drax. Yondu.

Frickin' awesome.

Enjoy - and let me know what you're looking forward to.

Game of Thrones Season 3

Its back, time to get the good wine out of the fridge, get the cheesy pops out of the cupboard and put your feet up for an enthralling Season 3 of game of Thrones.

Whats going to happen? I have no idea,. but it looks AWESOME

And for the more serious Game of Throne fans out there, if you haven't already seen them, a couple of sessions with the actors and producer regarding the new season, and seasons past.

The Pacific is Suckypoo

Just in case you were wondering, I am up to episode 6 of Tom Hanks' "The Pacific" and I still think it sucks big time.

Yes, Band of Brothers would be danged hard to follow but this is, and I don't use the term lightly, "Suckypoo".

I just hope that the book is better.

I continue to watch Pacific because I feel that ought to but really, it feels like I'm watching an exceptionally crappy soap opera. Is it better than nothing? I just don't know. What do you think?

As I said in my earlier review, "Pacific Disappointment" the best book for understanding an iota of what the Marines went through in the Pacific is to read the book "With The Old Breed" by Eugene Sledge.
