    The Leftovers. (HBO show)

    That's what I love about it. Season three is even more insane.

    Yeah loved that scene where he's giving the finger. He was a brilliant adversary.

    A Hard Day (2014) Thanks to @kerraig UK for the recommendation on this one. A really tight well pace Korean thriller. One of those films where the stakes keep getting upped throughout the film making you wonder how the main character can possibly get through it all. Really enjoyed it. 4/5 (not as good as MI Fallout :))

    No I haven't, will check it out. Next one I'd planned to watch was Hara Kiri.

    God Help The Girl I really love this musical from Stuart Murdoch. It got pretty much no mainstream coverage when it was released, and never seems to get mentioned when people discuss modern film musicals. Deserves far more love.

    Dead Or Alive Hanzaisha 1999 Watched this tonight as I'm always looking to expand my Miike viewing. It's a mixture of gripping Yakuza drama and the utterly batshit mental. The opening 5 minutes is one of the most exhilarating starts to a film I've ever seen. And the closing 5 minutes probably the the biggest WTF I've ever seen. Very bizarre, very Miike. Can't wait to watch 2 & 3, apparently they're even more batshit. 4/5

    Free Fire from Ben Wheatley & Amy Jump

    In the q and a with Wheatley which I attended when I first saw this film, he stated that his inspiration for the film came from him reading lots of police reports of real life gun fights in which hardly anyone ever hits their target. The reality is that people are usually shit shots in a pressured situation. He also talked about how it's bullshit in movies when police crouch behind car doors for cover in a shootout as a bullet would pass straight through it. Apparently there was a rise in policemen getting shot in America after this became prevalent in movies.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)

    The Hayley Atwell one is an interview within the regular weekly episode. The christopher mcquarrie one the week before was also the regular weekly pod with a sample of the spoiler cast in it. The full spoiler cast is the episode before that which is about three hours. They mentioned on this week's show that the second part of of the spoiler chat with christopher mcquarrie is still to come. Hope that makes sense.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)

    Hadn't heard of A Hard Day either. Just added it to my Amazon watch list as it looks right up my street.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)

    I'm with you on pretty much everything here apart from Fury Road. That's just crazy talk. But agreed Raid 2 is better than the first one. And definitely check out A Bittersweet Life, it's ace.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)

    For me some of those films (Fury Road, Dredd, The Raid) stand up to anything that was made in the 80s.

    Mamma Mia - Here We Go Again!

    The first film really surprised me, as I'm a fan of musicals but quite a snobby one. The thought of jukebox musicals usually makes my blood boil, but for some reason Mamma Mia just really worked. The emotion of Abba songs just seems to work really well within a musical. Yes, they are somewhat crowbared in, but that's half the fun.

    Mamma Mia - Here We Go Again!

    Absolutely love it. Going to see it for the second time tonight. I liked the first film, and was very sceptical about a sequel, but for me this one is even better. My Love, My life just destroys me.

    When Hally met Sally.

    I remember liking this when I saw it at the cinema on its release. But I never loved it, as at the time it felt like a Woody Allen film with the edges shaved off for a more commercial market. Having rewatched it for the first time since then a couple of weeks ago with my wife, I still feel that way a little, but found myself getting much more swept up in it this time and really enjoying it. But maybe that's just me being in my mid forties now. I pretty much cry at anything these days.
