    The Turks love this film, it's called Son Umut in Turkish - Last Hope, because it puts them in a good light. I was minded of Atatuk's tribute to the fallen at Galipoli:

    Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives ... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours ... You, the mothers who sent their sons from faraway countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.

    Just watched this on iplayer here at work. Thought it was going to be ridiculous, but turned out, as you say, to be very enjoyable.

    The Ugly American
    Brando as a newly appointed US ambassador to a southeast Asian country with a nationalist resistance led by an old friend whom he mistakes for a communist.
    Surprisingly nuanced whilst still depicting the Reds as puppet-masters. The ambassador gets it wrong, but admits it.
    Released in 1963, so before Johnson's response to the Tonkin incident.

    Re-watching Upstart Crow on Netflix. Very cleverly written, with clever references to Shakespeare's plays, with 70's sit-com style bawdiness.

    Ben Elton's writing and David Mitchell's delivery are superb.

    Not everybody's cup of tea, but the smile just does it

    She's in Deadpool. Just done a film in the lead role too, can't recall the name of it though.

    Bottle Shock - gently enjoyable retelling of the blind tasting event in 1976 that elevated the status of Califiornian wines. Alan Rickman was superb as usual.

    The Frankenstein Chronicles

    Sean Bean stops washing his hair (again) for two runs of this Netflix period mystery. An out-of-town copper with a guilt complex is hired to investigate the grizzly discovery of a body stitched together from parts, and steps into a feud between the new college of surgeons and the mavericks of modern medicine.

    I found it very enjoyable. Good performances from a host of period drama refugees. Lots of interchangeable tall men with dark hair and sideburns and names like Sir Robert and Sir William and the like. Plenty of famous names dropped in inappropriate places.

    It walked by itself / 5

    Brightburn

    Take the Superman story, but instead of the child that fell from the sky being inherently good he's not and as he grows up and develops powers it becomes clear that he is the opposite of a hero.

    Interesting take, reasonably well done 7/10

    The Great Hack (Netflix). Exposing the tactics used by Cambridge Analytica to influence elections around the globe. The centrepiece was Trump and Brexit, though it felt like the producers were trying a bit too hard to convince the viewer, rather than letting the viewer decide for themselves (ironic given the subject matter).
    The company's past was far more interesting, especially their role in the Trinidad elections where they began a campaign to convince young blacks that it was cool not to vote by creating what appeared to be a grassroots anti-establishment campaign.
    Could have done with being half an hour shorter, but otherwise well worth a watch/10.

    Predestination

    Gender-bending time travel science fiction with Ethan Hawke. Great script, if predictably predictable in places. Had the feel of a Wachowskis film.

    Either one of the best films of the past decade or too confused to really be any good at all, and I can't decide which.

    Good fun / 5

    Beauty and the Beast

    A nation of confused middle aged men can breathe a sigh of relief because Emma Watson is now playing characters who are above the age of consent.

    Not really into musicals and got annoyed when everyone kept bursting into song all the time but the script was both fresh and faithful and the cast was good.

    It's not weird any more / 5.
