“Hell is a City” 1960. Filmed on location in Manchester, so I spent a lot of time trying to recognise the very changed places.
Starred Stanley Baker + amongst others;
Billie Whitelaw, Donald Pleasance, Warren Mitchell. And lots who appeared in just about every British film in the 1960s and 70s.
Peter Capaldi had a very bit part.
The man who was the mayor of San Francisco in “The Enforcer” played the main villain.

One reason to watch was to see the entrance to my uncle' office which played the entrance to the bookmakers.

What a let down. 6/10.

The Last Jedi- as bad as I expected it to be.

Annihilation- 8.5/10. Terrific.

Superb film. Stanley Baker at his surly best. Thanks to Talking Pictures for resurrecting so many of these British classics.

The Vanishing of Sidney Hall 7/10

Seems the "critics" were a bit sniffy about it but I found it more than watchable. Elle Fanning is a talent imo

'Catch Me if You Can', a gentle yet fun watch. A Carlos 6/10.

Just finished; recorded from Film4 last week.
'The Train'
Burt Lancaster, Paul Schofield, Jeanne Moreau.
Being in black and white seems to make it more atmospheric of the period.

'The Train' is a superb film. Lancaster at his energetic best.

Great scenes throughout, especially during the finale.

8/10.
